In their Friday sermons the muftis are certain to stress the role of Yasser Arafat in the struggle "for the just cause of his people" and establishment of peace in the land of Palestine. "Yasser Arafat was a great friend of our country - not only of Muslims, but also of people of other confessions, respected Russia and its peoples," Sheikh Ravil Gainutdin, chairman of the Council of Muftis of Russia, emphasised in a RIA Novosti interview on the day the Palestinian leader passed away. He also said that the Council "will support creation of the Palestinian state, one of whose founders was Yasser Arafat." Mufti Gainutdin expressed condolences to the people of Palestine, emphasising that "the Russian Muslims mourn the death of Yasser Arafat". "For believers it is a good sign that a person departs for Allah the Most High precisely in the blessed days of the holy month of Ramadan, for these are the days when the Gates of Paradise and the grace of God are opened. May Allah the Most High accept the soul of his slave Yasser Arafat into his eternal paradise," Mufti Gainutdin says in his message to the Palestinian people
