Many Muslims and non-Muslims return to their family home for a few days prior to Hari Raya Aidifitri so that they can celebrate the holiday with family and friends. While together, family and friends seek forgiveness from each other. Many say prayers at the mosques of relatives and enjoy meals with family or friends that consist of traditional food and drink. Children are often given token sums of money by parents and elders.

On the eve of Hari Raya Aidifitri, families busily prepare and cook food for the day. No one leaves home the night before, but gather to talk, eat and drink. The next day, people leave home to visit relatives and friends which continues throughout the fourth day of the festival. On the first day of the festival, homes are opened in order to share food and drink with others.

During Hari Raya Aidifitri, Istana Nurul Iman Palace is opened to the public for two days and the Royal Family welcomes visitors. Bruneians dress in their best clothing in order to meet the royals.
