MOSCOW – Russia’s Orthodox archpriest Dmitri Smirnov has told congregants in his last Sunday sermon that the future belongs to Muslims, praising them for offering help to the needy without repay, unlike the Christians in this land.
“In fact, during their [Muslim] festivals, the people are scared to enter their areas (in Moscow) because tens of thousands of young Muslim men fall down on their knees and worship God,” World Bulletin quoted the archpriest on Wednesday, September 10.
“Where have you seen that many Orthodox men? You cannot see them anywhere at any time,’ he added.

Qurban means sacrifice. The significance of this eid is from the offering of Prophet Abraham(as), who prepeared to present his son Ismail(as) to Allah, upon having dream of such a command. He prepared to offer his son, but this was a test from Allah, so before he could sloughter his boy, the angels replaced him with a sacrificing animal.
The act of Qurban (Sacrifice) is carried out by millions of Muslims every year during Eid Al-Adha following the example of the father of Prophets, Ibrahim (AS). It is celeberated for four days after the day of Hajj (9th Dhul Hajj). This means it is on the 10th, 11th, 12th and 13th of Dhul Hajj on the Islamic calender.
Allah (SWT) says in the Quran: “It is neither their meat nor their blood, that reaches Allah, it is your piety that reaches Him”. (Al Qur’an, Ch:22 v:37)
The prophet Muhammad PBUH was asked “What is Qurban?”, He answered, “It is the sunnah of your father Ibrahim (AS), for every hair of the Qurban you will receive a reward from Allah and for every hair in the wool you will receive a reward”. (Hadith – Ibn Maja and Tirmidhi).
To remember this sacrifice of him we,muslim who can afford to, make an offering to Allah of an animal. This is called Qurbani. It is not an obligation, but necessarily for all who are earning and have enough money to do it. The meat of the animal should be divided into three portions, of which one third is distributed among the poor, another part among relatives and friends, and the third is consumed in the family.
As a Muslim, its an Ibadah, no Muslims can ignore and the blessings are enormous. So, get yourself registered at one of the nearest Mosque or surau to fulfill the ibadah.
