Uraza-Bayram is one of the main Muslim holidays, therefore visiting the mosque on this day is compulsory. The orthodox dress up in festive clothes and go to perform namaz. As a rule, only men are present at prayer, while women are preparing to receive guests. All passers-by should be congratulated with the words: "May Allah grant Allah mercy upon you and us", "May Allah give yours and our prayers".

On a festive day it is customary to give alms, as well as give gifts to relatives and friends. First of all, do not forget about children. Muslims also try to ask for forgiveness and thereby try to atone for their sins.

In Uraza Bairam Muslims visit the graves of relatives, and in the evening they gather at the table their whole family. It is believed that the house is also visited by the spirits of deceased ancestors.

It is no accident that the first day of the month of Shavval is called a holiday of "breaking". The table must break with food. Sweets are especially honored: almonds, dates, figs and pistachios, biscuits and desserts. Generous housewives prepare meals on the eve and necessarily refer neighbors.
