Before the official declaration, Muslims from all over the world gather in Mecca.
During these celebrations, they engage in charitable activities such as providing food, clothing, money, and even paying the bills of the needy.
A large number of people are expected to attend that day, either in mosques or recreation centers, to ensure its success.
Recreational facilities, particularly those in Mombasa, are expected to attract a large number of visitors from all over the world.
