7:45 PM

My day began at dawn with the first prayer of the day. I got into my best clothes and went to Mosque for my Eid prayer. The Mosque was full of local Muslims from many races and cultural backgrounds.

The Mosque is a place of peace.

The recitation of the Quran by the Imaam was very peaceful and soothing for the mind. It was like meditation and suddenly my mind was free of stress. I sat on the prayer mat and listened to the Imaam's sermon.

I did not know any of the people who were at the Mosque and yet I felt very comfortable there. We all had one thing in common and that was the fact that we were all Muslim.

With the Imaam we all praised Allah for all the blessings we have received. The Imaam explained greatness of Eid-ul Fitr and then followed by Eid-ul-Adha marks the end of Hajj, the Muslim pilgrimage to Makkah.

The Imaam also prayed for the poor and needy and for peace and harmony in the world. It was a very comforting prayer. It made me realise how lucky I am not to be living in war torn country or being too poor to afford food and shelter. I whole heartedly prayed for those people who needed my prayers.

After the prayer everyone at the Mosque embraced each other and began to head home to family. I went home and embraced my parents and my brothers and I took gifts for everyone in my family and also received lots of money! It was nice to see the whole family together since we are usually all in different locations. We took lots of photos and then went out to Ipoh in the evening.
