On the first day of Hari Raya, Muslims pray at the mosque and visit the graves of loved ones. Children ask for forgiveness from their parents, and look forward to receiving duit raya from their elders. This is also a time to reinforce family ties.
Earlier this month, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said the government would allow Malaysians to balik kampung for Hari Raya Aidilfitri. This is after two years of Muslims being unable to balik kampung because of travel restrictions to curb the spread of Covid-19.
