Idi Kurbon

Idi Kurbon

Sacrificial Offering Festival
This is one of the most honorable religious holidays for all Muslims celebrated 70
days after the Ramadan month when all the believers observe strict fastening.

There is a legend about the roots of this
holiday in the Holy Scripture. It says that Allah did not allow the faithful Muslim name
Ibrahim to sacrifice his son, Ismail, by putting a ram on the Sacrificial Altar.
Since that it is customary to sacrifice animals as a symbol of the credo of God’s
omnipotence and bowels of mercies.
On Idi Kurbon the believers wear clean brows, go to mosques, slaughter a
sacrificial lamb or calf, give out the meat to the poor – a part of the meat is given to
poor relatives and the rest part is used to cook festive meals. This day it is
customary to visit friends and relatives and receive guests.
