Aidil Fitri is a reward or a gift from Allah the Almighty to Muslims for fasting in Ramadhan. However, while celebrating the auspicious occasion, there are a number of things which are prohibited. Among them is combining the Hari Raya celebration with entertainment which is not ibadat or an act of worship or religious deed. The matter was clarified by Awang Haji Suhaimi bin Haji Gemok, Acting Director of Shari'ah Affairs during a recent interview.
The Acting Director of Shari'ah Affairs said when visiting, respect the hosts and consider the visting time because they might be praying. Do not criticise the food served. Awang Haji Suhaimi added visiting should not be during open house only and remember Hari Raya is not for making up not eating during the day in Ramadhan.
