A Tale To Tell & Remember

I'm very much inspired by the words of Thomas L. Friedman in his book "The World Is Flat" which renders about the influence of bloggers in this new age. I want to keep the highest integrity and honesty in posting my words to the world. This blog act as a testimony to my alacrity of sharing information with the borderless world. Hope we can share a high regards of veracity and chivalry with this blog because that's why it is here. So help me God!

Eid in Labok, Machang - Kelantan (Part-2)


Performing the Sacrifice of Eid, ones have to be willing to buy one part of the cow. One cow in Eid tradition consists of seven parts. One part will cost one individual about RM 350.00. Photo above shows my uncle Farid is paying for his part in the Eid sacrifice. One individual in one’s lifetime must finish his seven part of the Eid sacrifice. There is no time frame for his Eid sacrifice to be done.

One can also do his Eid sacrifice for his late family members who are already gone. In performing Eid, it doesn’t only mean cows can be sacrificed. But also lamb, chicken, and other’s halal animals.

In performing the Eid sacrifice, ones who pay for their part must watch the sacrifice took place especially watching the blood flow of the slain animal. Photo above show Pak Jusoh sacrificing the cow as the man who holds the money of the Eid sacrifice. One part of the animal must be brought home for self use and other part of the animal must be given to the poor and much needed persons.
