Karimov said, "Ramadan teaches people to love Allah, to test their will and patience. It also teaches people to be wiser and honest."

Completion of Ramadan is celebrated with a prayer and almsgiving to the poor, the size of which this year should correspond to 5 manat per person.
Azerbaijan and Iran, unlike other Islamic states celebrate the end of Ramadan a day later. Local theologians explain this difference in timing of the appearance of the moon in the night sky, which marks the beginning of a new month.
