Shawal 1441 in MCO

Dated 2020G May 26 Tue 3 Shawal 1441H

May 24 SUN was 1 SHAWAL 1441H, the EID AIDILFITRI. It was the ending of Q5-MCO May 26 Tue, but would be extended to Q6 to Jun 9 Tue 17 Shawal. The celebration was with a series of SOP. No BALIK KAMPONG involving INTERSTATE, NO GATHERING more than 20 persons at one moment even in private home, NO OPEN HOUSE, etc, etc. Solat Aidilfitri in Surau and Masjid was allowed only to a very few AJK. Ordinary citizen made their solat at home with the family. The text of the khutbah was distributed online.

All ank2 were around except ALYA et al in JB, could not join because of MCO banned interstate crossing, and SB in OSNA, Germany. Zidni et al were in Sg Merab since the evening of the Sun 30th Ramadhan. Malini et al joined the final iftar of 1441H Ramadhan. On the raya day, I led the SEMAYANG RAYA at home, reading the khutbah, the text condensed from JAWI.


Alya et al in JB, and SB in OSNA,



Q5 Closing the Ramadhan

Dated 2020G May 22 Fri 29 Ramadhan 1441H

May 13 Wed 20 Ramadhan 1441H, was the start of Q5 of MCO. And would be through to May 26 Tue 3 Shawal, which would be extended to Q6 to Jun 9 Tue 17 Shawal. Many had no idea of what it would take in the un-MCO-ing beyond the dates. The term NEW NORMAL was introduced. But for sure in the normal NORMAL is the PRICE INCREASE.

May 15 Fri, for the first time Solat Jumaat was allowed in certain states in certain districts with limited number of makmum. In Masjid Negara, it turned out to be a show. Dozens of cameras turned up in crowds, ignoring the MCO SOP to capture the img of solat which later would be used against.

May 16 Sat, ank2 gathered for an iftar. In all 28 pcs were in, sans ALYA et al in JB, and obviously SB in Osna (5). Shawal is in a week, the mood was uncertain during this MCO time.

In the while, travelling through the MCO, local movement was not restricted, but the SOP was imposed especially at the public service centre such as groceries. The so-called social distancing. The entrance-Q to restrict the space density, the temperature check, the sanitation, etc. We've been the the groceries from time to time as needed. And for sure, the PRICE was INCREASING.

Wet market like Bangi was best to visit very early in the morning,

We went to the Centrum for the Shawal ingredients. The 'social-Q' was not long, but the supply were very limited, in some cases almost none, while in other places in plenty.
