On both Eids, there are official visitation days which begin on 8th of Shawwal and 14th of Dhul Hijjah. The visitations are called #Uwad.
Day one begins before the rising of the sun at the mosque of Imam al-Haddad. As with each location, it begins with a poetry reciter reciting a religious poem, for lack of better description, typically written many, many years ago by a local scholar.
You’ll find the most amount of reciters at Imam al-Haddad’s visit for an array of factors. Partly because he is very known for his poems and his poems are very much known. Then there’s also the relationship with the BaHarmi family band, which needs a post on its own.
Coffee is also served as well as perfume.
This is a photo at the end of the visit which went pass an hour in duration at Imam al-Haddad’s mosque, the new refurbished section was done up about twenty years ago. The ceiling is surrounded by inscription of the famous Ratib a-Haddad. This is the only mosque in Tareem that looks like this.
The original mosque, more than 300 years old, is in the rear left corner, about 10% or smaller than the current size, and clearly demarcated albeit without the original ceiling and walls. There’s also the outdoor section within the compound. On this day, people fill up the mosque, the compound and the streets outside.
The crowd then moves on to the BilFaqih house. I’m not sure if that sleeping boy made it though..
