The Head of the Metropolitan District of the Russian Orthodox Church in the Republic of Kazakhstan, Metropolitan Alexander of Astana and Kazakhstan, congratulated the Chairman of the Spiritual Administration of Muslims of Kazakhstan, the Supreme Mufti Nauryzbay kazhy Taganuly on the holiday of Oraza Ait.
Dear Mufti Khazret!
I cordially congratulate you and all Muslims of Kazakhstan on the holiday of Oraza Ait, which signifies the end of the holy month of Ramadan for all followers of Islam.
This holiday sums up the thirty-day fast and according to the ancient custom marked by the performance of works of mercy, special care for neighbors and compassion for those in need. Compliance with the religious prescriptions of Ramadan is directly related to the ideas of moral perfection of the individual and the strengthening of traditional spiritual and moral values.
In one of his appeals to the people, the Head of State, highly respected Kassym-Jomart Kemelevich Tokayev, noted: "Kazakhstan has been a territory of peace and creation, respect for faith and moral values, tolerance and good neighborliness for centuries."
From ancient times to the present day in the vastness of the Great Steppe, Muslims and Christians in peace and brotherly love, supporting each other, are working to develop and strengthen their common home - blessed Kazakhstan.
May God grant interfaith peace and interethnic harmony flourish on our land, for the benefit and good of all the peoples of the country.
I wish you, dear Mufti Khazret, and all Muslims of the Republic health, peace and prosperity!
With respect and best wishes,
HEAD OF THE ORTHODOX CHURCH OF KAZAKHSTAN
METROPOLITAN OF ASTANAI AND KAZAKHSTAN
