Over 98 percent of Comoros’ population is Muslim, so almost everyone celebrates Ide el Kabir for up to four straight days, starting on the tenth day of the Islamic month of Dhul Hijja. The date will vary on the Gregorian Calendar from year to year.

On Ide el Kabir, many businesses and government offices in Comoros shut down for the day. There is heavy street and foot traffic everywhere, as people travel about performing the religious rites of this holy day.

In accord with Islamic traditions, Muslims in Comoros slaughter a sheep, goat, or other animal to feast on themselves and to share relatives, friends and with those who can’t afford their own sacrifice.
