Eidul Adha 2011 at Taipei Main Station

Yesterday was my first time I did Eid al-Adha prayer at the different place from the four consecutive years before. Not in the different country, yet the location was different. The Indonesian Economic and Trade Office to Taipei, together with PCI-NU Taiwan, collaborated to hold Eid prayer for Indonesian muslims who live in Taiwan, especially in Taipei. The venue was at around Taipei Main Station, in front of South Gate 2. The prayer began at eight o’clock in the very sunny Sunday morning. The speech was delivered by K.H. Mohamad Ali Aziz. So, last week was my extraordinary week since I could hear the Jummah prayer speech and Eid al-Adha speech, both in Bahasa. I did not count the number of people who were coming, but according to the information that I get, there were more than 2,000 Indonesian muslims. And of course, Taiwanese who were passing by the occasion were curious and wondering what we did.
