Ilyumzhinov congratulates Muslims on Kurban Bayram holiday

I sincerely congratulate all the faithful Muslims of Russia and the world on the sacred and merciful holiday of Kurban-Bayram! Kurban-Bayram is a holiday when, forgetting about their hectic life, people become closer to each other and gather with relatives, friends and family members at the same table.
This bright holiday is a true symbol of spiritual purification and justice, desire to follow the path of moral perfection. By signifying the end of the pilgrimage to Mecca, Kurban Bayram awakens the best aspirations in the souls of believers: compassion, selflessness and mercy to one's neighbour.

In a glorious and bright holiday of Kurban Bayram, I wish you good health, pure thoughts, generosity of soul, respect for others, love and prosperity. Let this holiday shine a light on your life path and help you to choose the right road. Let your hearts and soul be always ready for good deeds.
I wish you to have a happy, joyful and bright Kurban Bayram holiday. Let there be prosperity in every house, let joy fill every soul, let the pure prayers be heard, let the Most High lead us from sorrow, let the light of hope and love shine brightly.

FIDE President

Kirsan Ilyumzhinov
