SELAMAT HARI RAYA

selamat hari raya to everyone!!! huhu, this may sound quite weird, but i somehow feel the wish 'selamat hari raya, maaf zahir batin' doesn't sound nice anymore.

why?

well, it simply because everyone wishes the same thing to everyone nowadays. they look like just some fixed words that have been used since ages ago.

maaf zahir batin? hahah, i really hope we mean it when we use it. not just some yearly wish to everyone we kow.

anyhow, i just hope i am not too late to say selamat hari raya. since i am also just a human being, i am sure i have done a lot of mistakes in life. ampun dan maaf in every single thing that i have done or said wrongly to anyone. >.<

have a good hari raya everyone! =)

  1. Maybe there is some truth in what you wrote as it is too automatic or said without feeling. Yesterday was another story. Puan Bharati (Indian nurse) suddenly offered her hand and said "Selamat Hari Raya!" It was so spontaneous but I was soooo touched and felt the warmth in her utterances. Then Doctor Shanta said the same thing to mami. Again, I was pleasantly surprised. Why the 'feel good' sensation if it was uttered by a non- Muslim? I guess I felt they really meant it....as opposed to us who say those words because somebody else wished us first. "Happy Hari Raya to all Malaysians in Japan!" I mean it!!!!!

  2. i know exactly what u mean. we are easily touched when the words are uttered by non-Muslims. since they dont celebrate hari raya, they seem more sincere i guess. =)
