The Moment that Never Forgotten

Once in a year, I together with my family usually going back to my hometown (‘Mudik’) to visit my beloved parents.
Surely that was on Eid ul Fitr …. the time when all of my whole families gathering.
We’ve took a long distance till arrived there in CANUKUR, my hometown, the place with full of peace… the place where I always missed…

Eid ul Fitr is a muslim holiday that marks the end of ‘Ramadhan’, the Islamic holy month of fasting.
In my country Eid is also commonly known as Hari Raya Lebaran means ‘Celebration Day’.

Just like other moslims all over the world, we also celebrate that great day.
In the morning on Eid ul Fitr we attended a special Eid Prayer (Shalat Id) where performed in congregation at mosques or at an opened area.
After prayers…, we commonly greet each other with saying ‘Selamat Lebaran’ means ‘Happy Eid’ or ‘Minal Aidin wal Faidzin’ means ‘Forgive my physical and emotional (wrong-doings)’.
As you’re all known….Eid ul Fitr not just mean for celebration only, but also the time for moslim to ask for forgiveness for any sin which we may have commited but was cleaned as a result of the fasting in the holy month of ramadhan.

Before the noon growing up…we all going to visit the graves of our family members. During that visit we usually recite ‘Ya-Siin’, a chapter from the Quran, and also pray there to ask Allah to forgive the dead and those who are living for all their sins.

Truthfully…. as the time before, there’s nothing special in Eid/Lebaran this year… All things gone as usual…But we all feel happy as we’re who lives separate one another for a very long distance, that day on Eid ul Fitr we could fulfiled our missed feeling and could see each other.. chit and chat…take pictures…Whats a gathering family!

That moment I’ll never forget…
