Muslims around the world will celebrate the completion of 1 month of fasting during the holy month of Ramadhan. In Malaysia this festival is know as Hari Raya Puasa or Hari Raya Aidil Fitri. It is also known as Eid ul-Fitr in arabic. The actual date of Hari Raya will be either 9th or 10th Sept 2010 depending on whether the new moon will be sighted on Sept 8th.
I would like to wish all muslims,
"SELAMAT HARI RAYA AIDIL FITRI"
Do have a safe and smooth journey home!
