My Ramadhan And Syawal This Year In A Glance
Aidilfitri Celebration with Malaysians in Brunei – 12 September 2011
Alhamdulillah yesterday I was able to celebrate Hari Raya with Malaysians in Brunei in conjunction with my working visit there. Here are some pictures taken of the event. I also included here pictures of several of the many Breaking Fast events I attended during Ramadhan as well as my Hari Raya Open House held at Seri Perdana last 1 Syawal.
I am grateful to be able to not only meet and break fast with various groups in Malaysia, but also to be able to perform the Tarawikh prayers every night during Ramadhan this year. These opportunities to meet the Rakyat are meaningful to me, and because of this, I am considering more approaches which will enable me to spend more time with you, the Rakyat, in the future.
Breaking of Fast with Members of the Media at Wisma Bernama – 15 August 2011
Once again I had the opportunity to meet and break fast with friends from the Malaysian media. I also spent some time visiting the operations office of Wisma Bernama.
Breaking of Fast with Selangor Rakyat – 17 August 2011
I spent time with some 10,000 people living around the Sri Perantau Apartments in Pelabuhan Klang. Whilst there I gave out some contribution from the Federal Government to 128 mosques and surau within the Kapar Parliamentary constituency and some special contribution to the Persatuan Warga Emas Bandar Baru Sultan Sulaiman.

Paying the Zakat Fitrah – 26 August 2011
I took the opportunity to fulfill my obligations to pay the Zakat Fitrah as I was performing the Friday prayers at the Putra Mosque in Putrajaya.
2011 Aidilfitri Open House – 30 August 2011
My deepest gratitude to those who came to Seri Perdana to attend the Aidilfitri Open House of me and my Cabinet Ministers. Apart from the foreign diplomats, political leaders and foreign tourists, the large presence of the Rakyat was very much appreciated.
