Hari Raya Puasa, or the festival of Eid, marks the end of the fasting month of Ramadan, and the start of a new month on the Islamic calendar, Syawal. 'Hari Raya Puasa' is a celebration of victory in completing the fast and the overcoming of personal struggles during the Ramadan, as well as a time of forgiveness and strengthening of bonds amongst family members and relatives.
After a long fight with COVID 19 outbreak, this year the holiday celebrations are back as the country is now in the process of transitioning to the endemic phase of COVID 19.
In the excitement of celebrating Hari Raya, make sure you stay vigilant and regularly use disinfectant when visiting relatives' houses.
Sabah State Library would like to wish Selamat Hari Raya to all Muslims!
