Traditionally, the holiday is celebrated with mass prayer in mosques and the Hajj to Mecca, which this year is inaccessible to most Muslims due to the closed borders of Saudi Arabia.


The authorities of Dagestan declared July 19 and 20 (Monday and Tuesday) days off in connection with the celebration of the Muslim holiday Eid al-Adha. Sergey Melikov, Acting Head of the Republic, announced this on Wednesday.

“A decision was made in connection with the celebration of Eid al-Adha to declare days off on July 19 and 20,” said Sergey Melikov at a meeting on problematic issues identified by the Regional Management Center.

According to the acting head of Dagestan, Saturday, July 17, will be a working day. In total, the inhabitants of the republic will rest for three days - July 18, 19 and 20.

Eid al-Adha, one of the two main Muslim holidays along with Eid al-Fitr, will be held on July 20 this year. It is traditionally celebrated with mass prayer in mosques and the Hajj to Mecca, which this year is inaccessible to most Muslims due to the closed borders of Saudi Arabia.
