My oversea raya experience.

Assalamualaikum and yeah.
It’s already Syawal in Islamic month which mean ends of fasting and this is my very first time Eid without my family, oversea. I have to say everything is pretty exciting. I decided to pray sunah eid far from the malays community which is in Al azhar mosque because one of the thing that you should avoid in the eid prayer is takbir ‘Melayu’ style because it’s quite nostalgia-ing. Lols

But paying at Al Azhar mosque is awesome because the atmosphere and vibe is different and better than one I’ve been experience in Malaysia. It’s like you’re really celebrating the day. Hurm, the day went okay. Since fajr prayer start around 3 so we (3 of my friends and a teacher of mine) took a taxi and prayed there.

After the eid prayer we decided to snap some pictures with everyone. I mean every race that we possibly met. Sounds silly but it’s quite fun. We got Indonesian, Thailand’s, Libyans, Syrians, Nigerians, Chinese and of course Egyptian.

So, here some tips on eid without your family in oversea.

1.       Pray somewhere else. Not at the mosque that you usually goes.
2.       Be tough, don’t think too much what you don’t get at the place you are instead embrace what you got there.
3.       Of course, call you parent/ family before the actual day. Let go everything. hahaha
4.       Above all, it’s all up to you whether you want to have an awesome day or what.

here some pic. Don't say i don't umbrella. ahaks

Salam Syawal peeps.
