"Dear people of Kazakhstan!
I sincerely congratulate you on the holy Kurban Ait for all Muslims of the world!
Kurban Ait is a holiday of humanism and loving-kindness, big-heartedness and charity.
On these big days, everyone who has faith in his heart, strives to do peaceful things, bringing joy to others and extending aid to the needy.
In this country, Kurban Ait encourages preserving and consolidating the unique traditions of mutual respect, friendship and unity among people of different ethnic groups and faiths.
This holiday will continue to facilitate conservation and consistent development of national identity, noble values, centuries-old cultural and historical heritage of the Kazakh nation.
