Alhamdulillah, It tooks me sometime to compose this posting. I will start from 1st Syawal – things that happenned.
Syawal comes again. After fasting for 30days long of Ramadhan, it was really an enjoyable moment where families meet and exchange news and present besides strengthening relationship and bond among us. (the photo above is my parents and my brothers and sister – 4 of us)
This is my family – Keluarga Pak Ngah
Ramadhan taught us on time management, the importance of time, sharing the feeling of the poor and the unlucky. Ramadhan too taught us to be responsible for others through zakat fitrah obligation.

Syawal being observed by moon sighting and/or through calendar or taqwim (calculated date on movement of the moon). Morning of first Syawal started with Subuh (Fajar) prayer followed by Takbir – Allahu Akbar. At around 8.30am, special prayer for Aidul Fitri will be held at mosque – everyone should attend – men and women. This is a great moment where we show our syukur (praise) to Allah for passing the test of Ramadhan beside we can meet and greet others living in our area too. I missed Aidilfitri in Malaysia 2 times. (1995 in Tashkent and 2003 in Peshawar). I missed Aidiladha few times (1995 – Tashkent and 2002 &-04 – Peshawar)
