Selamat Hari Raya Haji

Kid Chan take this opportunity to wish all Muslim friends and all Malaysians : Selamat Hari Raya Haji!

I have also taken an article from AllMalaysia.info on the GREAT significance of this celebration:

Hari Raya Aidiladha
Apart from Aidilfitri, the festival most grandly celebrated by Muslims the world over is Aidiladha. In Malaysia, it is more commonly known as Hari Raya Korban or Hari Raya Haji and a public holiday is observed.

Celebrated about two months after Aidilfitri, on the 10th day of Zulhijah, the 12th month of the Muslim calendar, it marks the end of the haj pilgrimage period (about two weeks); hence the name Hari Raya Haji (festival of the pilgrimage).

Every year millions of Muslims make the journey to the Holy Land of Mecca in Saudi Arabia to perform the haj, a requirement in Islam as it makes up one of the five tenets of the religion. As long as they have the means to do so, and are able health-wise, Muslims must perform the haj at least once in life. Upon completion of the haj, the men earn the title of "haji" and the women, "hajjah".

Aidiladha also commemorates the sacrifices made by the prophet Abraham (hence the word "korban" which means sacrifice), who demonstrated immense faith when he was put to the test by God. The prophet was commanded to offer his only son Ishmael up for sacrifice, and though it grieved him greatly, he made ready to perform the task. However, as he was about to strike his son, God stopped him and revealed that it was a trial. Ishmael's life was spared, and a ram sacrificed in his place.

As such, during Aidiladha, the sacrifice of animals such as lambs, goats, cows, bulls and camels is performed. The animals are slain in accordance with the proper religious rites; the meat is then distributed.

One third of the meat is given to the individual who willingly supplied the animal, while the rest is given to the poor and deserving friends and relatives. It is to be noted that this is not a compulsory religious duty, but an obligation for those who are able to afford it.

The observance of the korban is carried out after the congregational prayers, held early in the morning of Aidiladha. It is not unusual for the slaying to take place within the mosque compound.

The rest of the day is either spent visiting friends and relatives, or entertaining guests at home, as is customary in this multicultural country.

Though in Malaysia the celebration of Aidiladha is relatively solemn compared to Aidilfitri, by no means is it less important, for it is a day when Muslims reaffirm their faith in God, giving thanks for the many blessings that He has bequeathed to them.

The Wedding of Rajini & Pravind



It was definitely a great experience covering the full-fledged wedding of Rajini & Pravind. The SANGEET was particularly memorable with family and friends turning into Bollywood Megastar in celebration of the couple's union.The wedding ceremony was grand with more than 1000 guest congregating at PJ Civic Hall. The settings at Sheraton Imperial were awesome and looks like scenes recreated from DEVDAS. However, the overall feeling of the wedding was like Bend it like Beckham, with relatives from both families returning from UK, Australia & etc etc. I also had the BEST PRAWN dist ever at the reception in Sheraton and belief it or not, it's call PRAWN 69
