Baku. 2 September. REPORT.AZ/ The Caucasian Muslims Office (CMO) Gazi Council has made recommendations on Eid al-Adha.

Report was told in the press service of the CMO, slaughtering a sheep in Eid al-Adha is mainly important for the people performing Hajj pilgrimage. Slaughtering by the rich at other places is welcomed. Distribution of sacrificial meat to the poor and needy families is a great deed.

These animals should reach a certain age. Goats and sheep should be one year, bulls, cows over one or two years, camel five years.

Reading a prayer while slaughtering is recommended or to say 'Bismillаhi vallаhu akbar'.
