It's that time of year again when our Muslim friends and readers celebrate the culmination of 1 month of fasting and praying which ends in the Hari Raya celebration.
Although the official celebrations lasts 2 days , 30 and 31 August, a number of my Muslim friends have told me that the celebration will last 1 month , equaling the 1 month of prior fasting. I'm not quite sure if this is the norm or an established practice or if this is really true l but I do find it a trite unreal . I think this would definitely defeat the whole purpose of fasting.
Could anyone of my Muslim readers enlighten me on this ?
I'm still making my rounds of the Malaysian 'open house ' season and will come back with some pictures soon.
Till then, wishing all my Muslim friends, readers and browsers " SELAMAT HARI RAYA IDIL FITRI ' and Eid Ul Mubarak
Happy reading and painting
