Islamic scholars see tradition in Akhmat Kadyrov Foundation's charitable action in Mecca

The distribution of meat of sacrificial animals to residents of Mecca is in line with Islam and Muslim tradition, Islamic scholars explain. According to them, the local media did not cover the charitable action held in Saudi Arabia by the Akhmat Kadyrov Foundation.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that on August 1, Ramzan Kadyrov announced that the Akhmat Kadyrov Foundation distributed a thousand sacrificial animals to residents of Mecca on the occasion of the Eid al-Adha holiday.

Helping those in need in Mecca complies with the Sunnah of the Prophet Muhammad, says Ali Yevteev, a founder of the Islamic online academy "Medina".

"In this region, the poor always wait for pilgrims to stock up on meat," Ali Yevteev said.

It is believed that the reward for godly deeds is many times higher when they are performed in the Holy Land, explains Jamiyya Islami, a student at the Islamic University.

According to him, there are cases when wealthy Muslims from Russia arranged Ramadan iftars (meals after fasting) and laid tables for thousands of people in Mecca and Medina.

In Islam, the value of a donation is determined not by its cost or volume, but by the capabilities of a donor, the expert emphasizes.

Muslims do not find out the intentions of those who commit such charitable actions, notes Muhammad Salyakhetdinov, the editor-in-chief of the information agency "IslamNews".
