Selemat Hari Raya Haji

Eid al-Adha
(From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (Redirected from Hari raya haji))
Eid al-Adha (Arabic: عيد الأضحى‘Īdu l-’Aḍḥā) or "Festival of Sacrifice" or "Greater Eid" is an important religious holiday celebrated by Muslims worldwide to commemorate the willingness of Abraham (Ibrahim) to sacrifice his son Ishmael (Isma'il) as an act of obedience to God, before God intervened to provide him with a ram to sacrifice instead.[1] The meat is divided into three parts to be distributed to others. The family retains one third of the share, another third is given to relatives, friends and neighbors, and the other third is given to the poor & needy.
We visited Aunty Hasnah, Uncle Ghani and Amelina again :) this time round, with lots more people.
They counted 52! Superb turnout - 52 out of 83.
Almost of our Chinese New Year standard :)
Thanks to our good hosts, who made sure supplies of food and drinks are ever-ready and Amelina did the dishes! Thanks Thanks :)
The adults were busy catching up with one another, the children were busy playing at the pool, new editions (baby/ies) were seen ...
These two pics had to run out of frame.
