Kurban Bayram of Purity of Heart

Sacrifice symbolizes the unity, solidarity, free, free life, and high respect for human beings. Kurban Bayram also strengthens people's feelings of affection and brotherhood in their hearts.

It is obligatory to offer sacrifices and recite verses on the Kurban Bayram. Sacrifice begins on the first day of the Kurban Bayram after the Kurban prayer and lasts until the evening of the third day. The animals to be slaughtered in the sacrifice must also be healthy, fat, and dry. As a rule, the meat of the sacrificial animal must be divided into three equal parts. One of these parts must be distributed to the family of the sacrificer, one to his relatives, and the other to those who have not been able to offer sacrifices.

Legend has it that the ritual of sacrifice in Islamic sources has been practiced since the time of Adam. Kurban Bayram is considered to be the day when God blesses human beings.

The word "Kurban" literally means "to draw near, to draw near." Our forefathers used to say that the wishes made on the Kurban Bayram, the pure intentions of the heart, come true. On the eve of the feast, the angry people reconciled. One of the obligatory tasks to be performed on the morning of the Kurban Bayram is to obtain a "Kurban Shor." It is the duty of every Muslim ummah to fulfill this obligation, no matter what season of the year it is.

At this holiday, you are dressed in new clothes and cared for yourself and your home. In ancient times, it was not uncommon for a family member to wear one or two pieces of clothing, such as a bag, a needle, a flower, a hat, a scarf, and to wear a new one.

Despite the changing times and new developments in our lives, the long-standing traditions of our people for the benefit of society are not forgotten. In our happy times, a variety of blessings, such as a layer of cereal flour, buttermilk, bacon, buttermilk, baking powder, buttermilk, and butter, are opened to the wedding party. They are adorned with national dishes such as pilaf, dograma, cereals, grits, and fries.

National holidays are also important in child rearing. National values such as diligence, unanimity, loyalty, humanity, chastity are of great value. Our forefathers, who exhorted the great and the great to respect the small and the small, strengthened the foundations of the national principles of our people.

Happy Kurban Bayram, may your prayers be accepted, dear compatriots, in our country, where weddings come in pairs!
