Qurban Bayrami (Eid al-Adha) in Azerbaijan...

Azerbaijan is celebrating Qurban Bayrami (Eid al-Adha) this week. Most of people will be back to business only on Thursday this week.

Weather is very generous to us this week as well. Sun is shining brightly in many regions of the country. Leaves of the trees and waters of the Caspian shine so brightly.
Many families are spending their days together and enjoying the weather and each other's company.

Today many people also remember to be generous and share. Everyone who can afford slaughters sheep and shares meat with relatives, friends and most importantly with those in need.

We all pray and hope for peace and prosperity and thank for health, beauty, love, each other and for everything actually.

Sending you best wishes and lots of sun shine from Azerbaijan via below pictures, courtesy of good friend and talented photographer Tagi Jafarov.

Dear Ayten, You`ve made such wonderful and elaborate posts now and also in 2008 and 2009 about Qurban Bayrami on Your blog, there`s really nothing to add; funny to say that my first research on that also was on Wikipedia which You added last year as a link ; I know that for Judaism and Christianity it has also a meaning (I mean the religious background!) though not so much, unfortunately.
So my heart and thoughts are with all of You during these days!
"To make a pause, show gratefulness to god and remember to share" - very wise words by You, dear Ayten!!!
And in my view so important in our times and in all parts of the world... .
Yes, my admiration again for Your blog!!! :)))
Qurban Bayram!!!
Amin...and all the very best to all of You!!! :)))
