Selamat Hari Raya Aidil Fitri/Eid Mubarak
Dr Kamsiah and I wish all our friends, associates and Muslims the world over Happy and Peaceful Aidil Fitr/Eid Mubarak. The standard greeting for this auspicious occasion in Bahasa Malaysia is “Selamat Hari Raya, Maaf, Zahir & Batin”.
The end of the Holy month of Ramadan when Muslims are required to fast and atone for their earthly sins so that they can be closer to ALLAH, the Most Merciful and the Most Compassionate is fast approaching, only some 48 hours to go. May there be peace and harmony in our country as Malaysian Muslims welcome relatives and friends into their homes on Hari Raya Day.
For those who are making the customary return to their respective hometowns to join their relatives and friends, we wish them a safe journey. Drive with care and consideration.
To mark the coming of Aidil Fitri, we have chosen to play some songs by some famous Malaysian singers for your listening pleasure this weekend as we await the sighting of the Moon to signal the start of the month of Syawal. We thank you for your good wishes and support. We have received many Hari Raya cards from our friends and associates.–Dr Kamsiah and Din Merican
