After a month of fasting, the Muslim world celebrates Ramadan Bayram. Georgian Muslims celebrate the holiday as well.
The Chairperson of the Government of Adjara, Tornike Rizhvadze, congratulated the believers on holiday. He arrived in Batumi Ortajame together with the members of the Cabinet of Ministers.
The Mufti of Georgia, Adam Shantadze, performed the festive prayer in the central mosque of Batumi.
"After a month of fasting, Bayram is a celebration of spiritual upliftment and victory over passions. Congratulations to all believers on this great holiday. We pray for the country, for world peace, for us to defeat the pandemic soon," Adam Shantadze said.
Due to a large number of worshipers, the prayer was performed outside the mosque.
Ramadan Bayram is one of the greatest holidays in the Muslim world. It is preceded by a month of heavy fasting, during which believers are forbidden to take any food or water from sunrise to sunset. On the feast of Bayram, Muslims help others, treat each other with sweets, visit relatives and the graves of ancestors.
