Kurbun bairam. Kurbun – bairam is one of the most important holidays for the Muslims. The word Kurbun means a sacrifice, and the word bairam is translated as a holiday. The holidays proceeded by a 30-day fast. Kurbun bairam lasts 3-4 days. This is the history of the holiday. Long, long ago there lived a man, Abraham by name. He and his wife Sarah were childless. Abraham prayed God for a child and one day Sarah gave a birth to a son. The parents loved him greatly. But when their son grew up, God asked Abraham to sacrifice his son to him. Abraham and Sarah were in despair, but they decided to fulfill Gods will. Abraham took his son to the mountains where he was going to kill his son. But as soon as he raised his knife to cut the sons throat, the Angel seized Abrahams hand and told him that God believed him and allowed to sacrifice a sheep instead of his son. Muslims begin their celebrations early in the morning when they visit mosques to pray. After that, a sheep sacrifice follows, when the meat of the sacrifice animal is donated to the relatives, neighbors, especially to the poor and the sick.
Every year I donate one part of meat to the relatives, the second part to those who need it and the third part to our family. Every year 100 pupils and teachers thank me for that. Every day I try to do good for people. What do you do or your parents do for poor?
