BerRaya on the go..

Its a common culture in Malaysia to have an open-house.. Meaning you don't have to wait be invited to go to friends or family's home for a special treat specially on the 1st, 2nd & 3rd day of Raya..! Special family recipe & Cookies will be prepared earlier during the Fasting month to making sure its enough for all visitor on those days. But some will still continue to organize open-house on a specific date and inform all relatives and friends or colleague about it.. 




Special family recipe & RayaCookies...

Another Malaysian culture is giving out 'Raya Packet money' which is actually not a practice mentioned in al-Quran or Hadith for the Islam religion. It may also be the influence of Chinese culture.


However, all this does not mean that the practice is wrong for Muslims, coz in Islam, we are advised to do a lot of charity and giving gifts to establish Silaturrahmi. Islam does not prohibit the entry of foreign cultural influence of the original as long as it does not conflict with religion.
