I couldn't be more excited when the news on TV said that tomorrow is officially raya! Well, my friends have invited me to visit their house though some of them are affected with the flood in Baling, Kedah. Poor them, all their raya preparations were affected by the gushing flood that struck after four hours of heavy rains.
All I want to say here is that, there are other people who cannot enjoy their raya this year. There are families who had lost their family members in road crashes and many more unexpected events in their life. Let us ponder for two minutes about how lucky we are for having the chance to celebrate raya this year. Please do not waste the chances given by our God okay?
To those who are driving back to your hometown, please drive carefully. Do not rush or drive when you are tired okay? Let us celebrate this raya modestly, there is nothing wrong with toning down our joy a bit to respect those who are not so blessed with happiness and wealth. I hope that we can all meet another chance to fast again next year! Take care and God bless.
Happy Eid Mubarak everyone!
Maaf Zahir dan batin.
