Visiting one another is part of the culture in celebrating and enliven the Hari Raya Aidilfitri celebration. Apart from ushering the victory day, it has also forged a closer rapport among the Muslims. The term ‘Open House’ has become a commonplace for house owner to entertain relatives and friends during this Hari Raya.
Hosting open house is a similar platform practised by the Muslims in the country specifically in the month of Syawal to foster closer relations. Every this festive season, the public will not miss the opportunity to host open house to entertain families, friends and neighbours and it is becoming the norm to forgive and visit each other to further strengthen the existing relationship. This culture has become the Bruneian community’s tradition that shows camaraderie and solid solidarity as well as relations and harmony in living community life.
The Hari Raya Aidilfitri celebration in the country is celebrated by various levels of community regardless of age and rank. It is hoped that this year’s Aidilfitri is celebrated well and become the turning point of our changes towards gaining Allah’s pleasure aside from teaching us to be humble.
