"Thousands of Muslims gather in the blessed Bulgar in order to honor the memory of our ancestors, make du'as for them and visit holy places. It is known that by the will of the Most High, our ancestors took Islam much earlier, as evidenced by various historical sources. And today we, praise be to the Most High, are the continuers of those traditions and the way that our ancestors chose for us, trying to convey to the next generation the great spiritual and theological heritage that they left to us. For many centuries, Islam served as a pivot for the Tatars in the development of their traditions, culture and moral foundations. We ask Allah Almighty to continue this religion for us a guide and a desire for a happy life," Ilfar Hazrat said.
 
Traditionally, on this holiday the Imams read sermons, at the square of the Bolgar Cathedral Mosque where collective midday prayer is performed, with recitation of the verses from Qur'an and Muslims making collective du`as.
