In Malaysia, the fall of Hari Raya is determine by the sign of moon. New moon can only be seen in the last day of Ramadhan and the observance of Hari Raya will be announced to the media such as television, radio and internet on that night.
After that, Ramadhan located in the ninth month of Hijrah calendar whereby all Muslim are prohibited from doing things such as to eat and drink and participate in wars. When it comes months of Ramadhan, the tradition Ramadhan Bazaar mushrooming every years especially in the cities or towns, People who lives in town may get busy by choosing any dishes to buy for their family at home before sunset goes down. Meanwhile, other people may prefer to break their fast at Mosque nearby. The positive effects when we break fast at mosque we can get communicate and get closer to the society rather than breaking fast alone.
Futhermore, in Islam we encourage to do a good deeds to people and society. In the months we can see many people doing a good things such as giving as giving orphan children to eat, paying zakat, dong charity to homeless and eldest people. By doing so, we are guranteed that we will get our rewards for doing so many positive things by many ways. Some other ways, people get too know more further to their only Gods which called Allah The Almighty by doind solat sunat, recite Al-Quran and Zikir. As what we see, the mosque always fill with many people to gather and doing Tarawih prayers after Isyak. Tarawih prayers only can be done in the months of Holy months of Ramadhan and the reason why people rushing to prays to Allah.
Morever, the purpose of celebrating Hari Raya Aidilftri is because to celebrate the winning against lust and bad doings when fasting in the holy months of Ramadhan.
