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

  1. To Malaysians celebrating Raya in the Land of the Free and Home of the Brave at taxpayer expense. Remember Malaysia is a country of milk and honey. Go home and serve your country.

  2. Malaysia remains a country of Milk and Honey. UMNO may have milked most of the milk from the cow and gobbled up much of the honey, “But honey, together we can do it”.

  3. Semper Fi and anak malaya, where are you. Selamat Hari Raya to you and Aini–Kamsiah and Din
    Hamid. I hope you like the selection we made for your listening pleasure, especially the one by Oslan Husein. Salams, Din

  4. Hari Raya is still 2 days away. Thanks for the kind Raya wishes. It makes us nostalgic hearing all these Raya songs and dreaming of celebrating the festive seasons with friends and relatives in the land of milk and honey. Yes the song posted by Gurubachan certainly tugs at our hearts.

    However like Bean said the milk has now been milked dry and the honey is more “no money no honey” so what’s left for us common folks? Even MAS don’t offer a Balik Kampung or Raya specials.

    Anyway we celebrate Raya amongst friends over here, friends who become family. Since Raya falls on Sunday there will be more festivities and open house.

    From afar we wish you and Dr. Kam, Selamat Hari Raya, maaf zahir batin. Insha Allah will meet up soon.

  5. To Dato Din and Dr Kamsiah, to all Muslim friends in this blogsite… Selamat Hari Raya Aidil Fitri and Maaf Dzahir dan Batin…. and to the rest, happy holidays!

  6. Dato’ Din Merican & Datin Dr Kamsiah Haider

    Selamat Hari Raya ‘Aidil Fitri
    Minal ‘Aidi Walfa ‘Izin
    Maaf Zahir Batin


    HAK & keluarga.

  7. Selamat Hari Raya Aidil Fitri to Dato Din and Dr. Kam. We are still in bulan Ramadhan and Hari Raya is set for Sunday. All these songs are making me terkenang kampong halaman dan sanak saudara, agak pilu juga apabila kedengaran takbir dipagi raya.

  8. Selamat Hari Raya Dato Datin sekeluarga and to all those who celebrate as well, stay safe on the roads. To the rest of the M’sians, happy holidays,there’s nothing stopping you joining in and have a yarn and meal!


  9. Bean@9.49pm.
    Home is where you are accepted and welcomed and where you are able to excel using your skills and talent without the need for crutches and stigma of being a preferred. Have already done and served the homeland and quite disappointed with the outcome.
    Here are the songs for you and Aini for Aidil Fitr–Din Merican

  10. Needless to say it would be nice to hear directly from our Datin (co-host now ousted by her other half). Thanks to Democrat.

  11. Yes, semper fi. They tell me that the Taiwanese restaurant you depicted has a branch in NYC and the ‘teloq torpedo’ pictured is very popular with the ladies over here. But I’m more interested to find a home for my chopsticks the next time I visit my favoritie nyotaimori in Manhattan.

  12. I miss the padi fields and the palm trees swaying in the wind. I forgot how it feels like to hold a Malay gal in my arms .. *sob* *sob*

  13. To all our Muslim friends, we wish you Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri, Maaf Zahir Batin. Have a safe and joyous Hari Raya!

  14. Eid Mubarak – عيد مبارك‎ – to all Moslems from far and near.
    May Allah the Merciful grants Grace and Peace to all.
    It’s handy that the celebration falls on a Sunday. A chance to meet up with all my Malaysian friends. 🙂

  15. Selamat Hari Raya, Maaf, Zahir & Batin to you and Dr. Kamsiah!
    Thanks, Tony. Trust you are well. Have you heard from George Ritchie? –Din Merican

    Min’al Ai’din Wal’faizin, Ma’af Zahir & Bathin.

    This is to specially express our Gratitude to Bloghost, Dato Din Merican & Datin Dr Kamsiah, for having patiently tolerated & given us latitude to vent some of our frustrations here, for lack of public space elsewhere, thank you.

  17. Bean, the Manados are also from the Malay stock. No difference, just a little TLC accorded. You seriously need to make a trip back to tanah tumpahnya darahku or at least the neighboring country to see the sawah padi, pokok nyiok ditepi bendang dan anak sungai and the sound of the seruling bambu playing melodiously in the background.

  18. Dear Dato & Datin,

    Wishing you and family Selamat Hari Raya Aidil Fitri, good health and prosperous year ahead.
