Today marks the end of Ramadan, the month long fasting from sunrise to sunset. Muslims greet each other with the words “maaf zahir dan batin”, which means “Forgive my physical and emotional (wrongdoings), it is also a celebration of unity. The Eid prayer is to ask for God’s forgiveness, mercy, peace and blessings for all living beings across the world.
In Malaysia, this is a 2 day public holiday but the celebration lasts all month. It is customary to have open houses where friends, families and neighbours are invited to celebrate over food, and this includes non Muslims in a show of unity.
Well, I’m off today to my friend’s open house to celebrate this day with her friends and family.
I wish you all forgiveness for my wrong doings, peace on earth and good blessings xx

It is always good to hear positive stories like yours. It is never the religion that is the problem. Only people who use it to divide us 💕🌷🌺

In Tanzania I have experienced my first exposure to this month long fast. I encountered it in a spirit of mutual acceptance and respect amongst the Christian and Muslim kids and teachers alike. They also have a country wide days holiday to celebrate the end of the fast. I so love the unity of the religions there and wish the rest of the world could take heed. Intersting, informative and heartwarming post, thanks xxx

I live in a country where my friends are of different religions. It is not them who are tainting the religion.

How kind of you to offer this, at a time when Muslims are so vilified by so many. Cheers.

J’attend sans espoir

Je m’endors en rêvant
Je t’adore ma chérie ❤ ❤ ❤

I think people have become misguided, not Islam nor any other religion at it’s purest form.

Looking what is happening in Syria and Iraq in the name of the Islam I can only say if I was an Islam follower which I am not, I would hang my name in shame because the Islam has become an evil religion. Please accept me as a spiritual pagan and not an enemy.

the month long fast last from sunrise to sunset everyday depending on the country you are in. So during daylight hours, one cannot consume neither food nor water. When the sunsets, you can break fast and eat modestly and perform prayers. fasting is to develop and strengthen powers of self-control for the purpose of self improvement. To be nearer to God by following the spiritual cleansing. To remember those who are suffering. Fasting includes refraining from causing harmful acts, bad habits and to do good, give to charity.

Oh ok … I wanted to ask what’s the purpose of the month long fasting and what can be eaten during that time .. I never really understood the deeper meaning of it..

Are you a Muslim ???
July 28, 2014 at 16:19
I have never found a Islamic follower not kind or not caring. This country I live in has cast the scarlet letter on them. I liked your post and hope people read your words and know that Muslims are people too not to be vilified…

And a very warm Selamat Hari Raya Eid Al Fitri to you
