Aidil Fitri



Selamat Hari Raya
Maaf Zahir & Batin

This is my 4th Aidil Fitri in blogosphere. How time flies. The things I have written on Bru weren't all sweet and pleasing, so where my words and pictures have offended you, bros and sis, please accept my ampun-maaf in the spirit of wonderful Syawal.


This beautiful photograph is of the Syed Al-Bukhary mosque in Alor Setar, courtesy of jeebsion.com [Correction: The pix is of another masjid - Masjid Zahir. I've included the other pix by the same photographer, which is of the Syed Al-Bukhary's mosque, at the end of this posting]

Blogger Reme Ahmad has a collection of Singapore mosques in his Raya greeting here. The Masjid Tentera in Clementi is probably where I first performed my Hari Raya prayers, circa end-60s. They have a basement/underground masjid too.

  2. Bro Rocky, selamat hari raya to you & the family, too. Gambat yang dilampirkan tu sebenarnya gambar Masjid Zahir/ Masjid Negeri aka Masjid Raja. Tuan punya link yg Bro Rocky lampirkan tu buat silap. Dia guna gambar Masjid Zahir, tapi, guna interior Masjid Bukhary. Sorry about the correction, Bro. Take care and Maaf Zahir Batin.

    Faisal, Alor Setar, Kedah.

    Selamat Hari Raya, Rocky.

    Hari Raya terakhir bagi kerajaan Barisan Nasional.

    Raja Petra telah mendedahkan kertas Kabinet kerajaan BN yang telah meluluskan kenaikan perbelanjaan (hutang) mendadak skandal Port Kelang.

    Jelas sekali kerajaan menyokong dan terlibat dalam skandal ni, tapi nak cuba tutup kes.

    Sekarang kerajaan nak saman Raja Petra, tapi kerajaan tak cakap apa-apa pasal kertas Kabinet itu.

    Habislah UMNO dan BN... dah tersangkut.

  15. Rocky,

    The picture was Masjid Zahir, not Masjid Al-Bukhary. Spend your time read that blog or spend your time go to Alor Star and pray at Masjid Zahir and Masjid Al-Bukhary too...

    Rocky, Slamat hari raya to you! :)

    Assalamualaikum,

    Selamat menyambut hari raya aidil fitri kepada awak (Rockys) dan seluruh warga Malaysia walau di mana mereka berada dengan diiringi doa agar sambutan pada tahun ini di penuhi dengan keceriaan dan kebahagiaan.

    Kepada Parti politik yang dianggotai oleh para muslimin dan muslimat, inilah masanya untuk bermaaf-maafan dan meningkatkan azam agar kekuatan politik ummah terus diperkukuhkan menerusi persamaan dari segi nilai dan anutan meskipun antara mereka berbeza dari segi pandangan dan hala tuju kepolitikan.

    Ingatlah bahawa hanya kerjasama yang lahir dalam kalangan sesama mukmin yang mampu membawa kesejahteraan dan kebahagiaan yang berpanjangan. Kegagalan dalam menghayati hakikat ini akan hanya merisikokan masa depan ummah kerana realitinya hanya ummah yang faham dan komited dengan permasalahan dan kehendak-kehendak sesama ummah itu sendiri.

    Sekian wassalam.

  26. Salam Rocky

    Mata kadang kala salah melihat....
    Maka Jari kadang kala salah menaip....
    Mulut kadang kala salah bercakap....
    Hati kadang kala salah menduga.....
    Maafkan segala kekhilafan yang pasti ada....

  27. Bro Kassim,

    I'm thankful he came into our lives, bro. We learned a lot in those 3-odd years. The Capt was a real Malay gentleman.

    Selamat Hari Raya.

    "I can't say the same thing about the terrapins, which are getting more extinct by the day because of pollution and decreasing habitat space. Not to mention getting preyed on by the happy people who'd eat anything (READ: Not Malays - we can't eat amphibians and reptiles because it's against the religion so that leaves... oh, you figure it out yourself) and everything."

    Another RACIST comment by your own staff. MALAY Mail indeed.
