The exact date of celebration of Kurman Ait (Eid al-Adha) will be approved after August 20 in Kyrgyzstan, the press service of the Spiritual Administration of Muslims reported.
The approximate date of the holiday is September 1.
Last year, the country celebrated this holiday on September 12.
The Eid al-Adha is the second of two Muslim holidays celebrated worldwide each year. It honors the willingness of Ibrahim to sacrifice his son, as an act of submission to God's command, before God then intervened, through his angel Jibra'il (Gabriel) and informs him that his sacrifice has already been accepted.
The meat from the sacrificed animal is preferred to be divided into three parts. The family retains one third of the share; another third is given to relatives, friends and neighbors; and the remaining third is given to the poor and needy.
