Safar bekheyr

When a member of a Muslim Iranian family is about to leave on a trip, he or she must pass 3 times under the holy Koran held by the mother or elder female of the family. The departing person then will kiss the Koran. As he or she says good-bye and starts to leave, they throw water from a bowl behind him and wish him or her a safe trip. The water signifies safe return.

Winner: Amirhosein Hazrati. Sad Afarin!
