Aidilfitri's sermon titled "Hakikat Kemenangan” delivered by Munir, among others, called on Muslims to take advantage of the blessings of Aidilfitri to enhance relations among members of the community.

In addition, Aidilfitri is also the best opportunity to improve relations among Muslims and do away with the culture of slandering and accusing each other.

"The truth is we are all brothers. Sometimes, (relationships) are broken by trivial things but have a lasting impact. Hence, let's try to improve the relationship between Muslims or try to be peacemakers for Muslims who are in conflict,” he said.

Sultan Ibrahim and Raja Zarith Sofiah then spent time greeting the congregants and those attending the Aidilfitri gathering with the Prime Minister, Ministers, Deputy Ministers and foreign dignitaries. - Bernama
