Muslims in Macedonia celebrate Tuesday Kurban Bayram or Eid el-Adha holiday.

The celebrations begin with the morning sabah-namaz prayer, and follow with the bajram-namaz prayers. The three day celebration also traditionally includes the sacrificial slaughtering of animals.

The holiday marks the day when the Quran was completed. The faithful exchange wishes for peace and welfare, and visit their relatives and neighbours. This holiday also marks the high point of the annual Hajj pilgrimage to the Islamic holy city of Mecca.
