First of all, I would like to wish myself and my beloved ayah, a Happy Father’s Day!
In Islam, a father is indeed THE (‘duh’) leader of the family. When a baby is born to a Muslim parent, he/she will carry what is called the nasab.
Father’s Day celebration falls on the third Sunday of June. Everyone in the world will want to treat his/her favourite hero for a treat. Malaysia is not spared of that. In this country which practises Islam as the official religion, Muslims children will pay tribute to his sacrifices for the family. During Ramadan, for example, many grown-up children who have a job will head to Dataran Merdeka (Square of Independence) in Kuala Lumpur for Iftar@KL 2017/1438 which ends this weekend.
I wonder why most hotels did not mention Father’s Day during Ramadan Buka Puasa offerings? Do they not realise that Father’s Day is also a Muslim. They should offer discount for those who are fathers on Father’s Day.
