Hari Raya Puasa (otherwise known as the festival of Eid) is a public holiday in Singapore that falls on the first day of Syawal, the 10th month of the Islamic calendar. It is celebrated by Muslims after the fasting month of Ramadan. The term ‘hari raya’ in Malay means “big day of rejoicing”. It is a season to seek forgiveness within the Muslim community and a time for strengthening of bonds among relatives and friends.

What date is Hari Raya 2022?

As it follows a lunar calendar, the dates on which Hari Raya Puasa falls on vary from year to year. This year, Hari Raya Puasa falls on Tuesday, 3rd of May. Do note that Hari Raya Puasa should not be mistaken for the first day of the Islamic New Year.

What should I bring as a gift for Hari Raya visiting?

To be fair, it is not necessary to bring a gift for Hari Raya visiting and there are no strict rules on it either. However, it would be great not to turn up to your host’s home empty-handed! After all, it is basic etiquette to bring a small token of appreciation, regardless of race or religion, when visiting someone’s home on a special occasion. 

For Hari Raya Puasa, popular gifts include gift hampers full of fruits, cookies and chocolates. Other well-received food items include a box of halal pastries, cakes or kueh. However, do take extra caution not to bring alcohol or anything non-halal. Alternatively, a nice bouquet of flowers would be a safe bet as Hari Raya gifts too.
