The new moon is not the only new thing for us at the dawn of Syawal. New clothes, new hopes, new beginnings await us as we are all familiar with the exciting things we get to do after spending the month of Ramadan on improving ourselves.
As such, we believe that Aidilfitri is also to completely encapsulate renewal, to improve by regenerating ourselves inwardly and outwardly, and to completely refresh our perspective on life and all that we hold dear.
So why not push our Aidilfitri experience to a whole new level?
Let’s take renewal further by perhaps showing appreciation for the presence of that cousin we haven’t seen for ages by slipping a heartfelt note in his duit raya packet, or make an ice-cream kuih dodol for that one aunt with the sweet tooth. You can also prevent cousins from fighting over stolen flip flops by placing extra pairs at the front porch of the house. It’s the little things like these that make Raya a better experience for everyone in the house.
Our fasting has renewed our patience and gratefulness for what we have, so let us reflect those virtues by rekindling the passion in our hearts for improvement during the holy month — be it renewing our ties with the distant family members, renewing our travel insurance, or even renewing what Raya means to us personally.
Let us also extend that spirit of renewal to other aspects of Raya, because as long as we live and as long as we love, there’s always room for self-improvement.
So let’s renew our Raya like we’ve never seen before.
Salam Aidilfitri from Ganforhire.
