The announcement has already been made by the ‘Penyimpan Besar Mohor Raja-Raja’ (Custodian of The Kings’ Emblem) that the Eid Mubarak or affectionately known as ‘Hari Raya Aidilfitri/Puasa’ in Malaysia will be celebrated on this Friday, 10th September 2010. The methods used to determine the date to celebrate Eid are via :
- ‘Rukyah’ (according to the numeration from phases of the moon) ;
- ‘Hisab’ (numeration from the calendar timing; the rotation of earth around the sun).
Time pass by instantaneously. Within blink of an eye. Cliche. Yet, it’s true. This Ramadhan seems to end so fast! I don’t know but I am kinda sad that it is leaving us behind. Ramadhan 2010 will no more emerge in our lives. And I really hope I will be given chance to ‘meet’ the upcoming Ramadhan; or spending it in Makkah. It’s just one of those aspirations inside.
Just now for the finale of Terawikh Prayer, I manage to perform a prolonged 12 in comparison to the usual 8 Rakaat. For me, it’s a kinda Hallelujah moment. Maybe because I was wearing the White Robe (it is more breezy); but I was feeling alright just now to savor the final bits of Terawikh. Alhamdulillah. But it’s just sad.
I am taking this opportunity to wish everyone “Selamat Hari Raya, Maaf Zahir Batin.” It is encouraged to seek forgiveness and apologizes during this Eid-Mubaraq. As for me personally, I am kinda proud of myself that I have mended a broken friendship with a friend (due to Facebook. Funny and ridiculous, right? BUT that is what happen) and did what I must do as a Moslem. Alhamdulillah.
Salam Aidilfitri 2010.
