The etiquette of visiting during Eid is not just a tradition or habit, but is also a manifestation of the noble values in our religion and culture.

By observing good visiting etiquette, we can make this holy moment of Eid al-Fitr a valuable time to strengthen our social and spiritual relationships with those closest to us.

It's customary to visit during Eid

1. Say hello when you arrive

Greetings are prayers for safety offered to each other. When visiting you are encouraged to say hello to respect the host. Giving a greeting can be a sign to the host to be aware of our arrival. Greetings can give a good impression to guests so that the host is happy with your arrival.

2. Have good and noble intentions when visiting during Eid

Visiting on Eid is not just a tradition or habit, but is also an opportunity to improve the quality of our social and spiritual relationships with other people. We need to pay attention to our actions and words when visiting, so as to avoid behavior that is impolite or causes discomfort to the host. Apart from that, good intentions also motivate us to do good deeds such as helping the host in preparing to welcome guests, providing assistance if needed, or conveying encouraging words.

3. Pay attention to polite times to visit

The following times can be an idea for you before visiting

After Eid al-Fitr prayers: The most common and considered polite time to visit on Eid is after completing the Eid al-Fitr prayers.

Morning: If it is not possible to visit after Eid al-Fitr prayers, then the morning before Eid al-Fitr prayer time is also a good time to visit.

During the day: During the day after Eid al-Fitr prayers it is still considered polite to visit, as long as it does not disturb the host's lunch time.

Evening: Visiting at night can also be considered polite, especially if there is a special invitation or a certain event being held by the host.

Avoiding Break Times: As much as possible, avoid visiting guests during break times, such as before bedtime or during the afternoon break, unless there is a special invitation or the host has given prior approval.

4. The length of the guest's stay does not bother the host

We need to show our respect and concern for their time and comfort, and help create good and harmonious relationships in this blessed Eid atmosphere. The length of time you visit can depend on who you visit. When you visit a distant relative, you might even spend the night at their house. But when you know that the host has many other activities, it would be better if you don't stay too long when visiting.

5. Visit relatives regardless of social strata

In Islam, brotherhood and social justice are highly emphasized, and visiting relatives regardless of social strata is a manifestation of these teachings. By ignoring differences in social status, we can create an atmosphere that embraces all members of a family or community, without making anyone feel ignored or looked down upon.

6. Not just for looking for snacks and other gifts

It's a loss when you visit just wanting a gift. Visiting relatives or friends on Eid should be more about staying in touch and spreading kindness, not just seeking material gain. Maintaining good relationships with others is much more important for giving happiness to others, and prioritizing good values in interacting with other people. Thus, the etiquette of visiting during Eid should be carried out with a sincere intention to strengthen ties, get to know each other, and strengthen social relations.

7. Maintain good manners and manners when visiting

Basically, there needs to be cooperation to maintain each other's comfort when visiting. Eid should be a moment for you to forgive each other and intend to build kindness afterwards. As a guest, behaving and acting politely shows that you respect the host.

8. Please the host

Pleasing the host when visiting is not only a form of good etiquette, but also a manifestation of the values of kindness, respect and togetherness in interacting with others. The most important thing in celebrating Eid is sharing happiness with each other. You can please your host by praising your achievements, reminiscing about your togetherness, even by joking without offending them.

9. Avoid slander

Slander alone is clearly not a good thing, especially if we visit but deliberately provoke slander. Whatever you do when visiting, you should avoid anything that smells like slander. Maintaining peace in society is better to do.

10. Not aimed at showing off wealth

Showing off the wealth we have has no benefit in society. The wealth that we excel at can actually provoke other people to act evilly. Showing off your wealth can be seen as arrogance. It would be nice if your wealth also contributed to the prosperity of your social environment.

11. Bring gifts

Sharing happiness during Eid can be shown in any way. Other people will certainly be happy to accept your gift. Sharing some of our good fortune will give us pleasure, and can even help people who need it more.

12. Say goodbye before leaving the house

You must reciprocate your arrival when you receive a welcome visit. The host who has given his time and served food and drink is certainly a sacrifice. As a guest, saying goodbye is a form of thanks and a way for you to appreciate your host again.
