Muslims all around the world celebrate one of the two especially revered holidays in Islam - Eid al-Fitr. In Kuzbass, the epidemic situation did not allow it to be held in the traditional format in mosques. Thus morning prayers were performed on the street with the implementation of all the recommendations of Federal Service for Surveillance on Consumer Rights Protection and Human Wellbeing (Rospotrebnadzor).
In the central cathedral mosque "Munira" in Kemerovo, the prayer was conducted by Mufti of Kuzbass Tagir Hazrat Bikchantaev. The Governor of Kuzbass Sergey Tsivilev also came to the city in order to congratulate the Muslims community of Kemerovo.
Eid Al Fitr celebrations usually last for three days. During these days, it is customary to visit relatives and friends, present gifts to them, and donate to the poor.
