Hari Raya Haji is celebrated by all Muslims to commemorate Prophet Abraham’s faithfulness toward God. When Prophet Abraham decided to sacrifice his son, Ishamel, God appeared and a ram was sacrificed in his place. That explains why thousands of sheep are being transported into Singapore to celebrate this important festival.
Rendang is a popular dish amongst the Malay community here in Singapore, and it’s also a common dish during traditional ceremonies, weddings and festive occasions such as Hari Raya Haji and the popular choice of meat are either beef or lamb.
