About 70 volunteers from Masjid Ahmad Ibrahim worked together yesterday to prepare for the korban ritual of sacrifice today, for which 144 sheep will be slaughtered.
The volunteers also prepared ingredients (above) for the Hari Raya Haji lunch that follows the first half of the ritual.
Ustaz Fachruddin Dzaki Mohamed, the manager of the mosque, said that Hari Raya Haji is nostalgic for the old kampung days, when the whole village would be involved in the preparations.
He said: "The spirit of" gotong-royong "(cooperating) can be felt with a number of volunteers who prepare food and prepare a light feast for volunteers in the korban. & # 39;
The party will be for about 300 volunteers and congregants who participate in the korban ritual. This is the fourth year that the mosque has prepared a party for Hari Raya Haji.
