“In adherence to the command of the Yang di-Pertuan Agong and with the consent of the Rulers, I hereby declare that the date for Hari Raya Puasa (Aidilfitri) for all states in Malaysia has been set for Monday, July 28, 2014,” announced Datuk Seri Syed Danial Syed Ahmad, the Keeper of the Rulers’ Seal. That was the announcement every Muslims in Malaysia had been waiting for every year. The Muslim community in Malaysia and all over the world celebrate Hari Raya Aidilfitri, (Eid ul Fitr) or also known as Hari Raya Puasa, to conclude the month long fasting during the holy month of Ramadan. Hari Raya Aidilfitri is regarded as a merry celebration as it marks a Muslim’s triumph and success on discipline and self-resistance which symbolizes refinement and rebirth.

It is necessary for Muslims to fast during the month of Ramadan, where they have to maintain their self-resistance in satisfying their basic needs and urges between dawn till dusk. They refrain from consuming food and drinks, as well as from smoking and sexual relations. It is also important that they keep their minds pure and not harbor any ill thoughts or intentions during this holy month.
