Hari Raya Puasa is a public holiday in Singapore, where it is celebrated according to many different ethnic and religious customs. The “Hari Raya Aidilfitri” prayers, are performed especially in the mosque to begin the day for Muslims. After the prayers, family assembles to have celebratory dinners, which frequently feature traditional foods like rendang (a spicy beef dish), ketupat (rice cakes), and many kinds of cookies and candies.
Homes are illuminated with vibrant lights, and neighborhoods are frequently decked up for the holidays, resulting in a lively and joyous ambiance. Muslims traditionally ask friends and family members for forgiveness during Hari Raya Puasa and donate to charitable organizations in an effort to uphold the values of compassion and generosity.
Visits to friends and family are a crucial component of the holiday. The fact that many families welcome visitors into their homes and that individuals from many backgrounds frequently participate in the celebrations reflects Singapore’s multiculturalism.
The Singaporean government has also recently planned several events and activities to commemorate Hari Raya Puasa, enabling members of diverse groups to join together and take part in the holiday’s rich traditions and cultural variety.
Hari Raya Puasa is, in general, a time of happiness, thankfulness, and solidarity among Muslims in Singapore as well as a chance for the larger community to unite and take part in the celebrations.
