PM urges Muslims to stay united, appreciate the deeper meanings behind Hari Raya Haji

PETALING JAYA, July 10 – After two years of Covid-19-enforced quiet observations of many events in Malaysia, including Hari Raya Aidiladha or Hari Raya Haji, the second most widely marked date in the Muslim calendar, this year Muslims in the country could once again congregate freely in mosques to welcome the day.

In his special message for the event, aired live Saturday, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob called on Muslims to appreciate the deeper meanings that came with the occasion of Hari Raya Haji, which called on equality, harmony, peace as well as the act of sacrifices including the sacrifice of wealth to share and ensure the well being of fellow human beings.

The day also calls for people to be grateful for all the blessings given and to be united and help one another – all that is relevant for practice for Muslims as well as in the context of the Keluarga Malaysia (Malaysian family), Ismail Sabri said, reiterating his assurance that efforts will be taken to ensure the well being of all Malaysians and that no one in the Malaysian family will be left behind.
