Selamat Hari Raya

Today's question - do you know when was the first Hari Raya Aidil Fitri celebrations?

In 624 CE, Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) with his companions and relatives celebrated Eid ul-Fitr for the first time ever after winning the Battle of Badr. The Battle of Badr was a key battle in the early days of Islam and marked a turning point in the Muslims' struggle against the Quraish in Makkah. This battle was the first large battle between the Muslims in Medina and the Quraish in Makkah and the victory was considered as decisive. This victory meant that a new power had arisen in Arabia and with that more and more Arabs began to convert to Islam and from this, led to the expansion of Islam throughout the world. Ever since then Eid ul-Fitr has been celebrated throughout the world.

My family and I would like to wish everyone Selamat Hari Raya Aidil Fitri Maaf Zahir Batin. I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for your support and also to apologise for any bahasa yang terkasar, perbuatan yang menyinggungkan and all that and pray that the world will be a good place for us all to live in regardless of race, language or religion.
