A talk on Hari Raya Puasa & Hari Raya Haji

About this event

Did you know that Hari Raya is not the Muslim new year? Did you know that only in Singapore Hari Raya Puasa is celebrated for a month? Did you know that Singapore was the main embarkation and disembarkation point for Southeast Asian Haj pilgrims in the 20th century?

Join us for an engaging session with Mr Mohamed Imran Mohamed Taib from the Centre for Interfaith Understanding (Singapore) to learn more about the main religious festivals of the Singapore Malay/Muslims, Hari Raya Puasa and Hari Raya Haji. Although derived from the Islamic festivals of Eid al-Fitr and Eid al-Adha respectively, Singapore Malays have celebrated them with cultural nuances that share an affinity with the wider Muslim world but with a distinct Singapore influence.
