Another Raya under MCO.
Well, I'm okay with it, as I feel it's necessary with Covid-19 raging worse than ever now.
What's there to celebrate, eh?
Anyway, I don't really celebrate anything much these days.
Just trying to make ends meet under the ongoing movement restrictions.
That's partly the reason why I have not been writing here for quite a while.
Busy and no mood.
I wonder how certain people could complain about not being able to celebrate Hari Raya as usual.
Maybe that's because they have a steady income or lots of money.
They don't seemed to realise that others are suffering.
Some are even burning money on firecrackers.
My friend in Kuantan said her neighbourhood now is like Jerusalem with Israeli soldiers running amok shooting and bombing Palestinians (which they are actually doing right now)..
They are using huge firecrackers there in her neighbourhood.
My friend's son who is with autism is having a very bad meltdown because of it.
Most people with autism can't stand the sound of firecrackers.
This is one of them,
This Khairul guy is a RTM radio DJ and he is with asperger, a high functioning person with autism.
I was told that there were other individuals with autism who have to be taken to hospital because of this last night.
Ya, why can't they celebrate raya without firecrackers?
It's not an Islamic or even a Malay tradition.
It's I believe was adopted by the Malays from Chinese New Year celebration.
The alim ulamak should come up with a fatwa on this.
What's the hukum of Muslims burning money with firecrackers to celebrate Hari Raya?
Anyway, I'm back in KL since a few weeks ago.
Crossed the state border with police's permission because of work.
I don't know whether I still have my job a few months from now because of the lockdown.
Hopefully, I will still have it, but if I lose it, I will accept it as something fated by Allah.
I will not blame it on the lockdown because it's necessary to contain Covid-19.
In fact, they should have done it much earlier when the number of cases started to increase earlier this year.
Well, if I lose my job, I think I will use my little savings to open a burger stall when the pandemic is over.
Life has to go on and I will survive one way or another.
I may not celebrate Hari Raya or anything else for now but I will not despair either.
p.s I have decided not to publish comments not related to my post anymore. Too many spams.
