The holiday of Uraza-Bayram: the essence and main traditions

The Eid al-Fitr holiday is one of the most important dates of the year for every Muslim, regardless of age and social status.According to the Gregorian calendar, the custom of spending this day in a special way was formed even in ancient times. It is believed that it was during the period of Ramadan that the prophet Muhammad received from above the first verses of the Quran. After this momentous event, the month was called sacred and dedicated to the glorification of Allah through austere fast and strict abstinence from the joys of the flesh and all sorts of entertainment.



The great holiday of Uraza-Bayram is essentially a solemn end to the lean period and is called the Day of Talking. With the rising of the sun, believers take baths, put on clean, festive clothes, use incense and gather in mosques. Immediately before the prayer, every member of the community, whose income exceeds the minimum necessary for a modest life, necessarily pays special alms for himself, his wife and children. This is done as a sign of respect for the Prophet Mohammed, who ordered that day to help the poor and give out donations to the needy.

At the end of the prayer, believers go home and are taken for a festive meal. The solemn table is covered beautifully and very abundantly.The menu must include all sorts of sweet dishes, fruits and jams. In food, they do not limit themselves so that in the coming year the holiday table will be as diverse and rich.

Gifts and food are brought to the tombs of the saints, while men visit houses where a funeral took place recently and express sincere condolences to family members who have died untimely.

On the central streets of cities and towns organize fairs and organize festive performances with the participation of musical groups, dance ensembles and jugglers. Swing and other attractions are set for children, and the rest of the holiday food is served to the poor and the poor.
