Ramadan is around the corner which is coming in less than a month! And Syawal will be seeing us again to celebrate Raya / Eid ul-Fitr.
Sampul Duit Raya
A Green Envelope or Sampul Duit Raya is the Malay adaptation of the Chinese red envelope, where Malay Muslims in Malaysia, Brunei, Singapore, and Indonesia hand out money in green envelopes to guests who visit their homes during Eid ul-Fitr. The reason behind the green colour is simply its association with the Islamic paradise. The idea of handing out green envelopes is based on the Islamic concept of zakat, where every Muslim is required to provide at least 2.5% mainly to the needy. However, providing green envelopes to others in Malay homes during Aidilfitri today is not only given to the poor guests, but also to the middle class and to the upper class. The amount of money depends on how much the host can afford to give their guests.
Today, the Green Envelope is not particularly in green colour anymore, although green is being the main colour for Raya’s decoration around the country.
Let’s look at some of our favourites picked online for your inspiration.
