The holiday lasts for four days, as of April 24, in the vicinity of Ne'bi Shuei'b outside of Tiberius (in the north of Israel).

According to Druze tradition, Shuei'b is allegedly Jethro, Moses' father in law. In traditional stories, Jethro was born in the half isle of Arabia and wandered over the Sahara desert while preaching for justice, faith in Allah and a Monotheistic religion.

The first day of the Holiday is intended for prayers of the religious ones alone; the other three are set for the entire community.
