In this Eid ul-Fitr, I and my family visited my wife’s kampong in Singaparna, Tasikmalaya, West Java, Indonesia from 21 to 28 October 2006. For us, as Muslims, Eid ul-Fitr is a joyful celebration of the achievement of enhanced piety. Eid is also a time to come together as a community and to renew friendship and family ties. I, my wife and my children meet with our extended family; cousins, aunts, uncles, grandparents, foster children etc. Aqiqah, a traditional celebration for the birth of Fahima Zikra, our baby girl, which involves the sacrifice of a goat indium thanks to Allah SWT, was also carried out on 22 October 2006 in Singaparna.
