Hari Raya Feast

Our neighbourhood mosque organized a Hari Raya Feast for all of us and nearby residents who frequented the mosque. We were fortunate enough to learn about this event the night before from a fellow neighbour.

It is great for the mosque to organize such an event and to extend invitation to residents of all races and religions to join in the festive occasion. My only wish is that the publicity could have been better so that more residents are aware of it and able to join in the celebration. It was a great time for us to meet up with our fellow neighbours and made friends with them through this event. We met some very warm people there. It made us felt so welcomed and I hope I would be able to join in more Hari Raya celebration organized by this mosque in the years to come.

This group of boys were seen enjoying some Hari Raya cookies.

"Use your first smile, your first form of generosity, of love, of kindness—use it at home; start at home. And if there is something left over—if … your plate is just full of abundance of patience and goodness and smiles and joy, then by all means, you should go … and offer that to others. But we must begin at home." by Dr Robin Smith
