There is a place in the world where Muslims who have the financial and physical capacity look forward to a visit and perform the Hajj once in a lifetime – the holy city of Mecca. Hari Raya Haji or Hari Raya Korban, the festival most grandly celebrated by Muslims besides Hari Raya Aidilfitri, is a festival which marks the end of a Muslim’s pilgrimage to the holy city of Mecca in Saudi Arabia. On this particularly special day, sheep, goats and cows are ritually slaughtered as sacrifice before their meats are distributed to the community, neighbours and relatives as a reminder to share one’s wealth with others.
Amidst the joyful celebration of this pilgrimage festival, Exabytes wishes all our Muslim customers and friends a Happy Hari Raya Haji!
