Today is Hari Raya, also known as Eid in the Islamic world.
As we celebrate the holiday, I would like to ask for all of us to keep in mind the people that are less fortunate, the people that are suffering, the people that are struggling in every part of the world. I want to ask for all of us to remember the deeds and lessons that we learnt in Ramadan and continue to apply them in our everyday lives.
For those of us who are fortunate enough to buy new clothes every year, to have a feast every year and to be able to afford decorations every year, do keep in mind that we are not rich except by the grace of Allah SWT.
I do apologise that this is not a typical blog post.
To my Non-Muslim brothers and sisters, I wish you well and enjoy the day with your family and friends, enjoy the day and keep in mind that humans don’t last long. Appreciate their presence and their smiles.
To my Muslim brothers and sisters, I wish all of you a Selamat Hari Raya (Eid Mubarak)!
