Muslims celebrate Uraza Bayram

Oraza Bayram (Ramazan Bayram) is the day of the end of fasting in the holy month of Ramadan, one of the two main Muslim holidays. In Arabic, it is known as Eid al-Fitr, or “The Feast of the Breaking of the Fast.” On this day, devout Muslims celebrate the completion of the longest and most difficult fasting for the month of Ramadan. For 28 or 30 days, believers refused to eat and drink during daylight hours. Only after the morning prayer on the day of Uraza Bayram are strict restrictions lifted, and any dishes allowed by Islam can be put on the table. Muslims are not guided by the solar calendar, but by the lunar calendar, so the date of Uraza Bayram shifts every year. In 2023, the holiday of Lent is celebrated on April 21 or 22.
