The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - Family - Rianne Reisha Abishegam, 11

HARI Raya Aidil­fitri is just around the cor­ner. It is a ma­jor re­li­gious cel­e­bra­tion for all Mus­lims.

Hari Raya Aidil­fitri marks the end of the fast­ing month and it falls on the first day of Syawal, the 10th month of the Mus­lim cal­en­dar.

It is a time of for­give­ness among the Mus­lim com­mu­nity. It is also a time to strengthen bonds among rel­a­tives and friends.

Let’s hear what our read­ers have to say on the topic, Se­la­mat Hari Raya.

“I am look­ing for­ward to Hari Raya Aidil­fitri. I love wear­ing beau­ti­ful new clothes, vis­it­ing rel­a­tives, get­ting duitraya in pretty pack­ets which I col­lect, and get­ting to­gether with my cousins to play fire­works. It will be so much fun!” says Amy Su­rayyah Ab­dul Malik, 10.

Mo­hamed Syamil Mo­hamed Salim, six, writes: “I love play­ing fire­works like sparklers and pop­pop dur­ing Hari Raya eve and I can’t wait to wear my Upin Ipin baju Melayu on Raya morn­ing!”

Adam Aarez Shahrul Nizar, nine, says, “I can­not wait to eat ke­tu­pat, lon­tong and chicken ren­dang with my par­ents.”

Azzim Aarez Shahrul Nizar, six, writes: “Se­la­mat Hari Raya to all Mus­lims. En­joy the oc­ca­sion with your fam­ily and friends.”

“Se­la­mat Hari Raya. Maaf za­hir dan batin,” writes Nur Zara Sofea Shahrul Nizar, five.

“I’d like to wish all my Mus­lim friends, Se­la­mat Hari Raya,” says Alvira Kaur Dhali­wal, five.

“I can’t wait to visit my Mus­lim friends on the first day of Hari Raya. It’ll be a cel­e­bra­tion of good food and good com­pany,” says Lara Alisha Colin, 11.

Erin So­nia Colin, eight, says, “Se­la­mat Hari Raya to all Starchild read­ers.”

“My mother and I will be vis­it­ing her Mus­lim friends to share in the fes­tive joy. We will be join­ing them for a de­li­cious meal. I will get a chance to play tra­di­tional games with their chil­dren,” writes Wil­liam Chin Jia Rhun, eight.

Rianne Reisha Abishegam, 11, writes: “I love to play fire­works

and en­joy yummy treats such as ke­tu­pat and ren­dang on Hari Raya.”

“My favourite Hari Raya cook­ies and snacks are dodol, kuih sem­prit and kuih bahulu. Se­la­mat Hari Raya,” says Aaron Aditya Suren­than, eight.
