“Eid” Celebration in Malaysia

As a continuation of our previous entry on Eid, we would like to share the emotions, feelings, happiness and colors of this celebration photographed by Zuikoholics members throughout Malaysia. This year Eid was celebrated recently on the 18th of August (1st of  Syawal 1433 Hijrah) to commemorate the conclusion of fasting for a month and to cleanse the soul and purify the heart during month Ramadhan.

Muslims in Malaysia consists of different races, cultures and ethnics which created and harmonized the “colors” of Eid. In Islam, the concept of Eid is to celebrate the day together with forgiveness and a clean heart.

Many of us had taken the opportunity to go back to our hometown few days earlier before the 1st of Syawal for a get together with all the relatives, families and friends. Such a big gathering brings us closer to one another and thus make the love stronger.

On the eve of Syawal, Eid Takbir will be recited after Maghrib and continue until the Eid Prayer. The Takbir, which praises Allah, is a very touching zikir which can led tears falling that touched our heart and soul.

As this is a celebration, the night before Syawal will be something special especially for the kids as they will get the opportunity to play with “bunga api” (fireworks).

In the morning on the 1st day of Syawal, Muslims will gather at the mosque around 8-9 am to perform the Eid Prayer. Once done, the celebration will begin where most of us will ask for forgiveness to the families for any wrongdoings. People will be coming to visit their families, relatives and friends to turn the slate clean and to keep the relationship in good health. In the Malay tradition, the children will be given the duit raya (money in an envelope) as a symbol of sharing the prosperity.

A time where the families, relatives and friends will gather together. A time full of gratitude and forgiveness. Hopefully, our photos will able to deliver the message and spirit of Eid celebrated by Muslim in selected places in Malaysia.
