Eidul Adha 1435 Hijri/2014 | Day of Nahar


Wish you a blessed Eid, dear readers. Alhamdulillah for His generous bounties that we are able to observe Eidul Adha in peaceful and happy circumstances unlike some of our friends in faith.

It has been raining almost everyday over here in this part of the world. Alhamdulillah, yet another reason to rejoice.

I remembered when I was small, how much I enjoyed lying on the wooden floor watching rain drops falling from attap roof. It was also my duty to place small basins underneath the leaking spots. As a kid it was so much fun going round the house looking for leakage in the roofs.

It's cold as it has been raining for days and my thoughts are with the cows/goats/sheeps that will be slaughtered and sacrificed - those involved in the acts of udhiyah. They are subservient makhluk of Allah. How submissive are we? How grateful are we? May Allah enable us to offer our sacrifices in a manner which could win His pleasure.

Well, here I am enjoying a nice supper - a traditional meal - ketupat which is steamed glutinous rice wrapped in special leaves. That triangle stuff in the pic below. 

Eid Mubarrak people!
Taqaballahu minna wa minkum
taqabbal ya karim
Selamat Hari Raya Aidil Adha.
That's how we say it in Malay.
