Hari Raya Puasa means "Day of Celebration" is an important religious festival celebrated by the Muslims in Singapore and Malaysia. This festival is marked as the end of Ramadan that is one month of fasting.

On this day the Muslims go for prayers in mosques at early morning and followed by visiting the graves. In evening Muslims recite the takbir in mosques. For Hari Raya Puasa, oil lamps at homes and mosques are lighted from the 20th day of Ramadan and continue lighting bright until the end of the festival.

On Hari Raya Puasa everyone put on new clothes, houses are thoroughly cleaned and decorated, people celebrate the evening with friends and families with delicious food like cakes, sweets, biscuits, ketupat, rending (a meat cuisine) etc.

This festival is greeted with a great joy, symbolizes purification and renewal and signifies a victory of self-restraint.
