Raya 101: Greetings


Raya 101: Greetings

5 May 2022
by Stefanie

Malaysia is a melting pot of different cultures and celebrations so it is always nice to get to know the customs and beliefs of the different races and religions in our community. It would not only be an enlightening experience but this also leads back to what our country is known for – Harmony & Peace. If you will be visiting during this Raya season, in hopes of getting some duit raya, we are here with a quick and easy guide to help you navigate through greetings for this festive season!

In Bahasa Malaysia.
Eid-al-Fitr falls on the tenth month of the Islamic calendar so a more accurate greeting would be “Selamat Hari Raya” which translates to “Have a joyous celebration”. You can then follow this greeting with “Maaf Zahir dan Batin”, which loosely translates to “I seek forgiveness for all my wrongdoings; both physically and spiritually”.

In Arabic.
Of course, you can also take it up a notch by greeting your Muslim brothers and sisters to Arabic. “Eid Mubarak” is a simple term commonly used by both Arab Christians and Arab Muslims which similarly means to wish a happy holiday. “Eid” translates to celebration while “Mubarak” translates to blessing.
