What I Love Most About Hari Raya!

Hello readers, Hari Raya is coming very soon. Few days till my favourite part of the year. Hari Raya is celebrated by all Muslims every year in every part of the country. There are two types of Hari Raya which is Hari Raya Aidilfitri and Hari Raya Aidiladha. But today I am going to talk about what I love most about Hari Raya Aidilfitri which is Hari Raya Puasa!
After fasting for almost a month, the first day of the month of Syawal which is the first day of Raya is celebrated with great celebrations and happiness. In my opinion, what I love most about Raya is getting to spend quality time with my family and relatives. Everyone seems very busy and to us, Raya is one of those times where we can meet up and spend time together. I have a very big family. I am not only close to my first cousins but I am close to almost all my relatives.
Each year on the morning of Hari Raya, we will have breakfast together and later on we will pay a respect to my late grandfather who died 8 years ago. We will recite Surah Yassin and pray for him. After that, we will visit my great grandmother and the other relatives. I love this part because I get to see all my cousins, aunties and uncles.
On the second day of Hari Raya, all of us will visit the other relatives which is staying in other states such as Negeri Sembilan and Johor. Meanwhile, on other Raya weekends we will visit each other houses in Kuala Lumpur. All these visiting and seeing each other really means a lot to me as I am studying away in Johor. So, I do not really get to see my family that much. I can not wait for the next holiday because to me quality time with my family is priceless!
