The feast of the sacrifice Eid al-Adha (Turkic), or ID al-Adha (Arabic) is one of the main festivals of the Muslims.

"(On the occasion of Eid al-Fitr – ed.) I would like to wish a believer with patience, mutual respect, maximum sacrifice. Because the victim is not only (in the slaughter – ed.) lamb, and that man in his soul brought the ability to give in the middle," said Valiullin.
He also urged believers of all faiths to listen to spiritual mentors and teachers. "We all need to learn to be sacrificial, to be able to give, to listen, to implement good intentions," said Valiullin.

"God gives us time, so we were more righteous, trying to hear better and understand each other. We are responsible for every deed and word: in this world and in the hereafter. So (call – ed) to appreciate every moment of life, to understand that we are not eternal, and no one knows how much is released to whom in this world to do more good, to be righteous, to be patient on all the hardships. And of course, you need to draw conclusions and to improve," said Abbyasov.
According to him, for implementation of these instructions and God gives people such holidays as Eid al-Adha, and also "so we departed from the Madding crowd, which engulfs us to reflect on the eternal and spiritual." Then, said the mufti, "is more interesting and easier to live."
"You should always respect each other, regardless of national and religious differences: we are all creations of God and descended from one father and mother Adam and eve. God created us different so we learned about, respected and appreciated each other and made for good" - summed up Abbyasov.
