Halal bihalal Connecting Togetherness

Halal bihalal is a tradition of celebrating Eid al-Fitr to ask and apologize to each other. Besides, this moment becomes the connection of the relationship, so that Allah SWT gives long life and health, expands fortune, and resolves life’s problems.

Because when they stay in touch, people forgive each other, build a sense of affection, and eliminate feelings of anger, jealousy, and annoyance. The statement was made by Ust. Dr. KH. Imam Muslimin while giving tausiyah (speech) in the Halal bihalal event of the big family of the Faculty of Animal Husbandry, Universitas Brawijaya (Fapet UB), Wednesday (19/05/2021).

According to him, humans were created with wild animal traits, but can be controlled with common sense and devotion to Allah SWT. There are often quarrel in life caused by a misunderstanding of the way of speaking which is motivated by lust alone.

“Therefore, in our social life, we should arrange ways of speaking based on common sense so we do not hurt other people’s feelings. This halal bihalal is actually our opportunity to apologize to each other in order to create a peaceful and serene life. ” he explained

The celebration of Eid Al-Fitr 1442 H at Fapet UB is the same as last year, carried out online considering the Covid-19 pandemic which has not ended. The meeting was attended by deans, teaching staff, education staff, student representatives, retired lecturers and staff, alumni, and Dharma Wanita through a zoom meeting. (dta / Humas UB/ Trans. Iir)
