Cherkessk, August 12, 2020

Hajj and Umrah Department of Muslim Religious Administration of Karachay-Cherkess Republic held a hajj contest, Islam.ru website reports. The contest consisted of several rounds, and according to their results the first place was awarded to Yulia Eresko, who won a prize ticket to Mecca.  

The participants were surprised that an Orthodox Christian woman became the winner of the contest. Yulia told the correspondents that she decided to take part in the competition so as to make a birthday present to her Muslim colleague, who really wanted to visit Mecca.

This story became known to the pilgrimage service of the Pyatigorsk and Circassian dioceses, which decided to make a gift for Yulia Eresko. The Orthodox clergy presented her free trip to the shrines of the Pskov land. The young lady was very surprised by the gift and she happily agreed to go for a pilgrimage.
