Moscow Muslims supported the decision to postpone the opening bell ceremony at the school next to the Cathedral mosque for the Eid al-Adha, as this will allow you to spend the holidays, without constraining each other, said RIA Novosti, the Moscow mufti Ildar Alyautdinov.

Earlier it became known that the school No. 2107 in the Meshchansky district of Moscow, near the Cathedral mosque, on the initiative of parents decided to move the Grand ruler on the occasion of the knowledge Day on September 4. In addition, the head of the Spiritual Assembly of Russian Muslims Albir Krganov said about such solutions in schools in different regions of the country.

«Unfortunately, in Moscow itself, where at least two million Muslims, not so much a platforms for religious ceremonies, which are mandatory in these sacred to every believer days. And although in recent times it opens all new sites in the area, it does not solve the problems of the capital’s Muslims, who do not always have somewhere to go, and besides, most of them committed to pray in the Central mosques,» said Alyautdinov.

According to the mufti, the feast of Eid al-Adha inside the mosque and near it there are dozens, «and sometimes hundreds of thousands of believers.» Therefore, the decision to move the school rulers for September 4 «was made based on all of the same security reasons, where everyone could spend their holiday, without constraining each other and without creating uncomfortable conditions for others.»

«I don’t think it would have been nice parents and pupils, being late on a line, to get through the closely-filled believers of the street, making it difficult to make them thus special prayer that, in fact, in varying degrees, may eventually provoke some conflicts. Because I think such a decision of the city authorities the right, taken from the considerations of the interests of the citizens, where everyone, regardless of religion or ethnicity, are equal citizens of the capital», — said the mufti.

Eid al-Adha is one of two major holidays in Islam, the feast of the Hajj, which is celebrated 70 days after Uraza-Bairam.
