With Hari Raya Aidilfitri or Eid coming up in just 4 days, everyone is definitely getting the festival bug. This year however I'll be missing a really close family friend. My dearest friend, whom I've known since I was 7 years old lost her father yesterday. He was a jovial character, always ready with a joke, always teasing me and my family. In fact, we consider him and his family part of our family. So it was a shock for me to get a text saying he's in critical condition, and to watch him breathe his last breath a few hours later. It will be a sombre Aidilfitri for my friend and her family. But life goes on.
May Allah bless his soul and the souls of those who have left us. Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri everybody. Drive safe.
