Fostering stronger bonds

THE scorching evening heat did not deter crowds from making their way to the Ramadan bazaar located near Tuanku Mizan Zainal Abidin Mosque in Precinct 3, Putrajaya.

At the bazaar, visitors jostled for space as queues snaked past the stalls, waiting for their orders to be taken and food prepared.

This is a regular scene at Ramadan bazaars throughout the country, as Muslims observe the fasting month.

Various traditional dishes and mouth-watering kuih are sold at these bazaars, attracting huge crowds daily.

During Ramadan, Muslims await with great anticipation the azan (call to prayer) as the sun sets, marking the end of fasting for the day.

This is often a cherished occasion enjoyed with loved ones and friends, as people gather and dine together before performing their prayers.

The fasting month also offers a chance for Muslims to foster stronger bonds with their community and remember the less fortunate.

Many mosques and surau (prayer rooms) serve bubur lambuk, prepared by its community members, to be distributed to the public and those in need.

As Hari Raya Aidilfitri approaches, many people will start shopping for snacks and baked goods to be served to guests.

At the Ramadan bazaars and markets, shoppers will find these treats while others might use delivery services to purchase them.
