Kurban-bayram is the main and most recognizable event in Islamic calendar. It is dedicated to the end of Hajj (pilgrimage to Mecca) 70 days after another big Islamic event – Uraza-bayram.
Two special areas for religious rites during Kurban-bayram celebration are planned to be organized in Ufa – one in front of shopping centre «Karavan» (st. Prigorodnaya, 55), which is located next to Zinino village, the second one on the North bus station area in Ordzhonikidze district.
Such decision was made due to positive result of special common area organization – first such place was organized on the territory of shopping center «Karavan» in 2018 and also due to wishes of the residents of the north part of the city to organize an area closer to Chernikovka and Inors neighborhoods.
Ufa Mosques and muslim organizations will hold the ceremony according to all Islam canons, the city and republic veterinary services will not allow sacrificial animals with any disease symptoms to get in the area.
After the end of festive sermony, the Regional public organization «Business club «Ferz’» will organize a festive event «Kurban Halal Fest» on the «Vatan» park territory and on the square in front of «Bashkiria» Lifestyle center.
Muslim calendar, which is used to define the dates, includes 12 moon months or 354 days. It’s 10-11 days less, than in Gregorian calendar. It is the reason why the date shifts every year. In 2019 the celebration of this event is on August 11th. Because August 11th is Sunday, it is declared, that August 12th is the festive day off in the Republic of Bashkortostan.
It should be noted, that in order to administer public safety, the law enforcement officials and the members of public safety Center will be on duty in the areas of festive event celebrations.
