“Allahu Akbar!” (Translation: Allah is the Greatest!)

This was the sound that woke me up this morning. It was the traditional call to prayer which emanated from the  Darul Makmur Mosque in Singapore.  But today wasn’t just an ordinary day. I was told that Muslims all over the world are celebrating the Hari Raya Haji.

Hari Raya Haji, or the “pilgrimage festival”, marks the end of a Muslim’s pilgrimage to the holy city of Mecca in Saudi Arabia. Also known as the Festival of Sacrifice, it commemorates Prophet Ibrahim’s willingness to sacrifice his son Ismail in an act of obedience to God. In Singapore, Hari Raya Haji is a public holiday.
