The head of the republic Aslan Tkhakushinov sent his congratulations to the Spiritual Management of Muslims of Adygeya. He expressed a hope that the energy and the noble service of the spiritual organization will continue to contribute to the prosperity of the republic, preservation of peace and harmony in the hearts of Muslims of Adygeya and Krasnodar region.
In connection with the twentieth anniversary of the creation the Council of the Spiritual Management of Muslims held a sitting in the republican capital. At the meeting the heads of the republican mosques as well as of the mosques of the whole North Caucasus were present.
It is believed that twenty years ago in Adygeya and Krasnodar region Islam had started reviving. Then, in Adamiy village (aul) the local elders and devout Muslims of the republic gathered. At the meeting they elected the first mufti of the republic - Chenib Mos. Within nine years, with assistance of the first President of Adygeya Republic Aslan Dzharimov in Maykop they built a mosque, which at that time was unique in the North Caucasus.
Today in Adygeya there are forty mosques. 150 devout Muslims of the republic made a pilgrimage to Mecca.
