Muslim Festivals In Malaysia

Muslim holidays are highly prominent in Malaysia. The most important of these is Hari Raya Puasa (also called Hari Raya Aidilfitri) which is the Malay translation of Eid al-Fitr.

The celebration begins after sunset on the 29th day of Ramadan when Muslims break their daily fast. If the crescent appears, the next day is declared Hari Raya Aidilfitri. The day begins with Muslims praying in mosques early in the morning followed by visits to the graveyards of loved ones. In Malaysia, many Muslims hold ‘open houses’ for relatives and friends of all races.
