25 July 2014 09:48

Muslims of Crimea will celebrate Oraza Bayram (Eid al Fitr) on July 28, important religious holiday celebrated by Muslims worldwide that marks the end of Ramadan, the Islamic holy month of fasting.

As there is no Cathedral mosque in Crimea that accommodates all comers, Eid (Bayram) prayer will take place in the building of cultural centre in Simferopol, as well as local mosques all over Crimea.

“The Bayram prayer traditionally gathers thousands of Muslims in Simferopol. As there is no big cathedral mosque that accommodates all Muslims, Bayram prayer is performed at the stadiums, cultural centers or other places”- reads the statement of Religious Administration of Muslims of Crimea.

Bayram prayer will start at 07:11 AM.

To recall, Muslim Oraza (Eid al Fitr) and Qurban (Eid al Adha) bayrams were declared official holidays in Crimea.
