Hari Raya Puasa
This month long festival is celebrated by the Muslims signaling the end of the fasting season of Ramadan. The Muslims will begin the holiday by visiting the local mosque to offer traditional Hari Raya Puasa prayers. The worshippers will then proceed to their ancestor's graves to honor past family members. This is truly a family holiday when open invitations are given, welcoming family and friends to thoroughly cleaned homes.
