The national holiday comes on the first day of the Islamic month of Shawwal, immediately following the holy month of Ramadan and month-long period of fasting, prayer and devotion. It is one of the most important of all Muslim commemorations.

Ramazan Bayram lasts two or three days and is a much-anticipated time off work for many in the country.

Around 97 percent of Azerbaijanis are Muslim, and most of these are Shia. It has one of the highest Shia Islam populations, by percentage, in the world. And yet, the country is also very secular with only around 20 percent saying they count religion as an important part of their lives.

On Eid, some will go to the local mosque for special morning prayers, and most will celebrate at home with a festive family feast. Everyone greets each other with a hearty “Happy Eid!” and, often, a formal embrace.
