Aidifitri 2009

For the umpteen time, the moon to determine the first day of Syawal was not sighted. This mean that we will not be celebrating the first day of Hari Raya with our neigbouring country. This is a never ending issue and everyone has their own theory, like the incapability of the people in charge of doing the "Rukyah", less efficient equipments to a more sinister reason which I could not elaborate here.

The State Judiciary Department wrote a nearly one page explaination in yesterday's Borneo Bulletin opinion page which debunk most of the theories. As for me, I'm not really concern that wether we should celebrate first day Raya with our fellow muslims from other country or not, but I'm more dissapointed of only celebrating Hari Raya for two days before we go back to work on Wednesday.

However, as a muslim we should be happy that we are still in the month of Ramadhan which gives us an extra day to do good deeds and gat as much "pahala" as we can. Allah s.w.t had said that if only all muslims can see and understand the rewards that the month of Ramadhan can give to a person, surely all of us will want Ramadhan to be celebrated for the whole year.
