Raya greetings to all readers and maaf zahir dan batin, i.e. forgive my wrongdoings. Hope you all have a lovely break with family and friends. And let’s hope that the coming year will see our land and its people blessed with more justice, peace, compassion, wisdom and enlightenment.
BFM Radio features Ahmad Fuat Rahmat of the Islamic Renaissance Front explaining the cultural and historical context of Hari Raya, and Nora Ebaid, a Palestinian student studying in Malaysia sharing her experience of celebrating Eid in Libya, Zimbabwe and South Africa.
And here’s a song dedicated to you all.
