Play in Young Children

Hari Raya is celebrated by Muslims around the world after fasting for 30 days. This day is called "Victory Day" for Muslims after they fast from eating and drinking from early morning until late evening. While fasting too, they should refrain from doing bad and useless things. They are encouraged to do more acts of worship to God.

During the Hari Raya celebrations, there are several traditions that Muslims will perform. In Malaysia in particular they will forgive each other's family and friends. In addition, they will also visit and greet each other. Traditional food dishes such as ketupat, rendang, lemang and satay will also be served. For children, they will receive duit raya from adults

Various kuih raya will be served to guests who come to visit them such as dodol, bahulu, pineapple tart and so on. At night, they will play with fireworks and firecrackers to celebrate this special day.

However, at this moment, they are no longer allowed to do such activities. This is so due to breaking the Covid-19 chain in the country. The sharp increase in cases in recent times has encouraged the wider use of information technology in celebrating Eid.The use of applications such as Video Call has been put to good use during the Hari Raya celebrations. They will call their family members virtually and apologize and say hello. They are encouraged to celebrate Hari Raya at home with family members. With that, they can spend more time with their families and do various activities together at home.

The Covid-19 virus has greatly changed the norms of society. Many sufferings and hardships are experienced by the world community at this time. Traditional practices and daily activities are also affected by this pandemic. Hopefully, this Covid-19 virus will quickly disappear from this earth for the well-being and safety of us all. Stay Home. Stay healthy.
