Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri for Kinabalu Blog readers

Tomorrow is the Aidilfitri or Eid-ul-Fitri, often abbreviated as simply Eid, a Muslim holiday that marks the end of Ramadan, the month of fasting. Eid is an Arabic term meaning “festivity” or “celebration” while Fiá¹­r means “to break the fast” and can also mean “nature” from the word “fitrat” and therefore symbolizes the breaking of the fasting period. On the day of the celebration, a typical Muslim family is awake very early and then after praying the first normal everyday prayer, is required to eat in a small quantity, symbolizing the end of Ramadan.

For Muslims, Eid ul-Fitr is a joyous occasion with important religious significance, celebrating of the achievement of enhanced piety. It is a day of forgiveness, moral victory, peace of congregation, fellowship, brotherhood and unity.

I usually celebrate Aidilfitri with my family back in Muar, Johor. However, this year, I could not go back for the holiday because of my wife’s turn to work in the hospital (she is a nurse). We will only celebrating Aidilfitri here in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah with my in-laws.

Hope that you will enjoy your festive season.
