On October 15th Muslims will celebrate festival of sacrifice - Eid al-Adha. Today in the news agency "Tatar-inform" was a video conference dedicated to this holiday and order of sacrifice. For journalists' questions answered the deputy mufti of Tatarstan, imam of "Gaile" mosque Rustam hazrat Khayrullin. 
 
Rustam hazrat said that Eid al-Adha falls on the 10th day of the month of Dhul-Hijjah (October 15). 
 
Eid al-Adha begins with a festive sermon and prayer. On this day in all the mosques of Tatarstan festive sermon begins at 7.20, and the reading of the holiday prayers - at 7.50. According to deputi mufti of RT, this year, unlike last year, in all mosques of the capital of Tatarstan festive prayer will be held at the same time. Recall that in the past years in the Kul Sharif mosque prayer came later, so that people can see the broadcast of the event at home. "This year by the decision of the chairman of MRB RT in all mosques festive prayer and sermon will be held at the same time, because in the past year, many Muslims confused the time and came to the other mosques in time of Kul Sharif. The celebrations came to the end, and so people could not read the prayer"- said Rustam Khayrullin. He noted that the festive sermon of the Kul Sharif mosque can be viewed on the TV. 
 
Guest of agency told in details what should be the sacrificial animal, how is necessary to conduct slaughtering and more. He explained that the sacrifice, Eid, is made after the Eid prayer. Slaughter of animals can be on 15,16 and 17 October in the daytime. According to tradition, the meat of the sacrificial animal is divided into three parts. One of them is on the table for a family feast, the other is given to needy, while the third remains at the family. Thus hazrat explained that giving away the meat of the sacrificial animal is possible for all - regardless of religion and nationality. "The Prophet in his utterances does not set any restrictions in this matter", - he said. You can give all of the meat. 
 
Hazrat also said that the festival will be widely celebrated across the country. Will be organized charity concerts, marathon and other social events.
