Eid Al-Adha-2015 Festive Events Schedule For Different Ukrainian Cities

23.09.2015 / 2019

Tomorrow, on September 24, Muslims worldwide are to celebrate one of the most important dates of the Islamic calendar, which is Eid al-Adha. The believers will come to the mosques early in the morning in order to perform the festive prayer together; in some places sacrificial animals will be slaughtered on the very same day, and some even plan to start distributing the meat among needy people before the dusk. Besides, the Muslim communities in different cities facilitated festive programmes, where both Muslims and curious non-Muslims can participate, and which is both interesting for adults and children.

We recommend you to come  about half an hour prior the prayer time indicated, so that you can participate in the joint Dhikr.

Kyiv

Festive prayer at Kyiv Islamic Cultural Centre is to begin at 8:00 AM, and the festive programme both for children (treats, sweets, bouncy castles) and for adults (treats, nasheeds, ethnic entertainments) is to begin right after it. The men will go to a farm near Kyiv in the afternoon to perform the sacrificial slaughter of the animals; the slaughter will continue on Friday morning as well. The meet will be distributed among the poor Kyiv Muslims on Saturday, September 26, in the ICC yard; and the volunteers will deliver meat to the forced resettlers and feeble old people.

Little Muslims from Lviv are having a three-day celebration of Eid al-Adha this year. On Friday, September 25, a children’s fest will be held between 4 and 9 PM at “Children’s Planet” (202 Stryiska Str, free entrance for people with flyers), with quizzes and gifts.
