Mayor of Sarajevo visits Moscow
On Tuesday, May 8, the first deputy chairman of the Russia Muftis Council and the Religious of Muslims of the Russian Federation, Rushan Abbyasov, received a delegation from Sarajevo (Bosnia and Herzegovina), led by the mayor of the city Abdulah Skaka. At the beginning of the meeting Rushan  Abbyasov conveyed greetings from the head of the RMC and SBMRF, the religious leader of Russian Muslims, Mufti Sheikh Ravil Gaynutdin, and also spoke about the activities of Russian Muslims. He noted  that Mufti Sheikh Ravil Gaynutdin personally invited the Mufti of Bosnia and Herzegovina Husein Kavazovic to visit the Moscow Cathedral Mosque.

Mufti Sheikh Ravil Gainutdin has also been close with the former mufti of Bosnia and Herzegovina Mustafa Tserich. In 2012, the imam-hatib of the Moscow Cathedral Mosque Mustafa Kutukcu took part in the inauguration ceremony of the new chief mufti of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Husein Kavazovich. «I should mention our cooperation with public and Islamic organizations of Croatia, Albania, Bulgaria, Romania. Just a month ago, a delegation of Serbian Muslims led by Mufti Mevlud Dudich visited the Moscow Cathedral Mosque", — said Rushan Abbyasov. He also informed the delegation from Sarajevo about the events held by the Russia Muftis Council and the Religious Board of Muslims of the Russian Federation, in particular, about the Moscow International Qur'an Reciting Competition, the Silk Road International Conference, the International Muslim Forum, the Moscow Halal Expo, the International Film Festival in Kazan, the charitable project «The tent of Ramadhan», as well as other social and charity programs.

The mayor of Sarajevo was pleasantly surprised at the diverse activities of Russian Muslims. The guests were offered a guided tour of the Moscow Cathedral Mosque, where Abdulla Skaka could admire the uniqueness of the Muslim temple, which preserved the traditional architecture. At the end of the meeting, the parties prayed in the big hall of the Moscow Cathedral Mosque and exchanged gifts.
