Eid

Syawal 1433

Happy Eid or in Malay, Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri to all Muslims. The big text above was written in Arabic which reads “Eid”. Eidulfitri and Aidilfitri are the more common words used here in Malaysia. It is day to celebrate the end of Ramadhan and a recognition of Allah the almighty.

Also in this month, the phrase “Maaf Zahir dan Batin” will be used most of the time as Muslims will seek forgiveness among them for all their wrong doings which means “Forgive my physical and emotional (wrong doings)”.

During this celebration, especially during the first two to three days, people will be wearing the traditional outfit. The males will be wearing the Baju Melayu with Kain Samping or Songket and a Songkok while the females will be wearing the Baju Kurung or Baju Kebaya with their Tudung. These traditional outfit had evolved since the old days and now there are many new designs and types to suit the current trend. However, amazingly most of it does not affect the original concept of the traditional outfit.

A custom among Malays during Eid is to meet their parents and ask for forgiveness should there have been any wrong doings especially those unintentional and went unnoticed. Malays usually visit the graves of their deceased family members and later visit friends and relatives. The concept of Eid is to celebrate the day together with forgiveness and clean heart. There are several signature dishes which Malays serve expecially for this occassion such as ketupat and lemang, both made from rice.

Some shots on what can be expected during the upcoming Hari Raya.
