Address of the President of Turkmenistan to compatriots on the occasion of the Gadyr gijesi offensive

“From the bottom of my heart I congratulate you on the blessed Gadyr gijesi - the Night of Omnipotence, symbolizing virtue, spiritual purity, righteousness, high humanism and unity, which we meet in accordance with the age-old national traditions and customs, bright thoughts and hopes,” the President's Address says Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov to his compatriots.

As noted in the message, the Turkmen people are characterized by kindness, nobility, mutual respect and deference. All this, together with material and spiritual values, religious and secular views, is for us the basis of creation and prosperity. Thus, holidays and glorious dates glorifying traditions and customs, faith and foundations, we celebrate widely and with enthusiasm. The night of omnipotence, when the Almighty sent down the first verses of the Holy Quran, calls for spiritual purity, humanism. This is a night of holiness, abundance and pacification, when, in accordance with ancient traditions, sadaqa - "agzachar" is given, blessings are given, wishes to each other a peaceful, happy and prosperous life, "tarawa" prayers are performed and prayers are offered.

The traditions of Gadyr gijesi of the month of Oraz, which calls for achieving enlightenment through physical and spiritual perfection, are a combination of the ideas of our ancestors about mercy and justice. In order to ensure prosperity in our society, to strengthen its unity, we carry out an act of pardon for convicts on the occasion of Gadyr gijesi.

“The sacred attitude to the holiday of Oraza and the Night of Omnipotence, the performance of religious rituals reflect the enrichment of the traditions of the people. Outstanding thinkers of the Turkmen people Abusagyt Abulhayyr, Mahmud Zamakhshari, Jalaleddin Rumi, Muhammad Bayram Khan, Dovletmammed Azadi, Nurmuhammed Andalib, Makhtumkuli Fragi, who left an unfading mark in world history, instructed to be just, merciful, and great-hearted, to be merciful, to the Motherland. We sacredly honor their covenants. Today our sacred mission is to conscientiously and selflessly serve the independent Motherland, ”the President's Address underlines.

Concluding his message, the Turkmen leader wished his compatriots good health, longevity, a peaceful and prosperous life, happiness, and great success in their work.
