Hari Raya checklists

Today is the first day of Shawwal, which means the month of Ramadan is no longer with us. It's the month of victory and also the month of forgiveness.
Most of us, especially Malaysian will celebrate this festivity with our love ones.
Here are a few things that we can do especially today, the first day of Shawwal, to enrich and increase our awareness of this beautiful month.
#1. Don't forget to Recite Takbeerat from that night of the first Shawaal until the day of thr first Shawwal
#2. Zakat eid fitra
#3. Wake up early in the morning -- don't go back to sleep after Solah Fajar
#4. Take a bath early in the morning
#5. Clean your teeth with a brush
#6. Put on your clean and best available clothes
#7. Wear perfume
#8. Eat sweets food especially dates before Eid Prayer
#9. Solah Eid Fitri in the mosque near you
#10. Plan to fast six days in the month of Shawwal

What do you usually do during the first day of Shawwal?
Do you have any family ritual that you do on this day?

Other than the above checklist, we usually eat brunch together as a family, exchange gifts and take annual family photos. It is a fun family day too. This is the time, other than worshipping Allah, it is also to catch up on family matters. It's the time when you can meet up with other family members, especially your extended family which lives in different state from you, at the same time.
