The Spiritual Administration of the Muslims of Kazakhstan (SAMK) has circulated an appeal on the occasion of the world specialized exhibition Astana EXPO 2017. The text of the appeal was published on the official website of the SAMK.
"We stand on the threshold of a historic event of the international level - EXPO 2017, which will enhance the authority, glory and respect of our state. As is known, the world exhibition EXPO 2017 opens on June 10. We are sure that our country, which organized such international events as the OSCE Summit, the Astana Economic Forum, the Investment Forum, the World Islamic Economic Forum and other events, with dignity will hold the exhibition EXPO 2017 as well,” stated in the SAMK.
The SAMK notes that this large-scale project, which will bring together more than a million people from all over the world, will give a new impetus to the economy of our state.
“It is therefore our civil duty before the people, to assist in holding this event. The EXPO has been held for more than a century and a half, therefore holding EXPO 2017 entrusts representatives of different spheres of our society with great responsibility.The upcoming important event, which is of historic importance to our country, gives us a great opportunity to acquaint foreign guests with our tradition and religion, culture and literature, to show our national values and achievements of our state and to show our hospitality,” leaders of Kazakhstani Muslims addressed to the citizens.
In the SAMK they urged all Kazakhstanis to show goodwill towards our foreign guests, to improve the quality of the service, to show national values and traditions, a culture that shows interfaith consent and interethnic unity in the country.
"The Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) in his Hadith said: "If you are visited by the head (representative) of another state, give him the proper honour. Hospitality is a quality inherent in the Kazakh people. The hospitality, generosity, openness of the Kazakhs is the tradition of our nomadic ancestors, that is passed from one generation to another. Let the Almighty Allah bless our good endeavours and show mercy to our people, May the Almighty strengthen our unity, grant the good and bright future to our independent country! Amen!, “ the address says.
