On Eid-ul-Fetr, Afghans first offer Eid prayers. Then they gather at home along with families greeting each member saying “Eid Mubarak” meaning “Happy Eid” may God accept your prayers and fasting and you might be selected among others who in future go to Hajj-pilgrimage.”
Elders very of very family give gifts and money to their children.

But he said want to buy a pair of cloths with reasonable of price of only 500 af to wear them during the Eid, as he said he can’t afford those of expensive with 1,500 to 2,000af.
There are many traditions used among the Afghans mostly used during the two days with religious ritual, while the religious scholars rejected them as Israf (expense beyond need) and a custom are not tolerated by many broke households.
“Islam want ease for the people (believer) not hardship”, said Qari Mohammad-u-Allah, a religious scholars and Imams of Khalid Ibne Walid Masjed (Mosque) for seventh Kabul district.
