It has now been a week into the month of Syawal. It is about this time in the past Hari Raya celebrations that I would start receiving requests from my former students wanting to visit me. This year the same cannot be said. It has been a quiet Hari Raya no doubt due to the virus outbreak. And in my moment of reminiscences of those wonderful times spent with my former students, I came across this Hari Raya video.
This Hari Raya video was created with the help of an extraordinry batch of former students a few years ago. It was meant to build cultural understanding towards Hari Raya celebrations and the etiquttes to follow when visiting Muslim homes during Hari Raya. We showed this video during assembly and it received good reviews. The video continues to be a useful resource for the purpose it was created. But for me now, it provides some comfort towards my longing heart wanting to see my former students again.
I hope that you enjoy the video. Selamat Hari Raya! Minal ‘Aidin wal Faizin.
