Selamat Saudara dan Saudari

I would like to share some information about our "Traditional Malay Wedding" which is dried off after 90's.

Hope this note will make you remember the beautiful day which is filled with loving memories.

A traditional Malay wedding is one of the most diverse, not to mention lavish, cultural traditions in the world. An amalgamation of local and Islamic customs, there are numerous activities that are included in the Malay wedding tradition.
The local tradition (most of the mixed community Traditions), melded with tenets of Islam, celebrates the couple’s marriage in a ceremony fit for royalty.

**Traditional Malay Wedding**

The Malay wedding is steeped in Asian culture , and is split into six auspicious occasions.

**memcari-peksa (Cari-Peksa )**

Memcari-peksa, also known as the ‘seeking ceremony’, is a crucial Malaysian tradition (still in practice), especially in arranged marriages. When a man is ready to settle down with the woman, his family performs a background check on her. (main reason for delay in marriages :P )
this survey will be conduct by relations. they will do a back ground checking about family tree of Bride. sometimes vice Versa

**Groom Suka ber-Kawhin**

When the man announces his intention to marry the woman, the couple’s families meet to discuss the plan for the wedding (EXPECTATION: arrange the wedding hall, food and beverage, decoration, expected invitees. but, REALITY: mostly about their wishes, groom need the decoration like this, bride need the dress like this and that. :P , fashion, surprise dance, awkward pictures of Groom) .
Both the families then set an engagement date. "Pengantin (Planthen) Suka Ber-kawin" is a symbol/ message to Brides family, which announces that the man and his woman have been brought together at last. (Expectation: Bride family will wait for message, but Reality: Groom family will wait for the message from Bride :D :P )

**Henna Staining Ceremony**

This tradition is full of fun, and witnessing it itself can be quite the experience. Three days before the wedding, the bride’s friends and relatives are invited to view her wardrobe. All the relatives will get-together and will wish her. she will be called as the Princess gonna be the Queen of Groom (Which means happiness for her brother and sisters that she is leaving house :P )
A day after this, the actual wedding ceremony begins with the henna-staining ceremony. Yellowish oil, extracted from henna leaves, is applied on the fingertips of the couple by friends and relatives, to announce the forthcoming marriage.

Nikah or the marriage contract is the first formal part of Malay wedding, as per the Islamic and civil laws. It is believed to give the marriage its sanctity. In this ceremony, the marriage is solemnized before religious officials. Most of the Ceremonies will be in Area Mosque with the witness of Area Moulavi. The groom promises the bride that he will take care of her and provide her a family. IN SHAA ALLAH

* Perkawihnan***

During the PER-KAHWINAN, the couple sits next to each other on a sofa called the Pelamin. This is a mark of approval and blessing. Loved ones and guests sprinkle the couple with scented water and yellow rice. The guests are given a Bunga Telur, an ornamented egg festooned with a flower, as a sign of fertility.
due to generation is changing, now we use to give a Ornament with a thank you card.

**Royalty for a Day**

Here the couple is treated like king and queen. People in royal court costumes serve the newlywed, while others act like royal guards and perform a demonstration of the traditional martial art called Silat. Musicians also play Malay court music. (Due to most of the Groom doesn't like this tradition they have stop this Royal Dress. instead of that they will wear a Traditional Malay dress or Western dress and will visit the new home. Welcome Home event. now named as Home Coming. Music has changed to Tamil or English)

After this, the couple lead their guests to a banquet which consists of delicious sweets and savoury dishes from the exotic Malaysian cuisine. The banquet can continue from noon till evening and delicious dishes like chicken curry, beef rendang, Babat, Sayur Lemak (vegetables cooked with coconut milk) and oil rice (Nasi bulih, Nasi tumis, Nasi Goreng) are served.

when the Event is over Groom's family will give Selamat and will dua from Allah to have beautiful life.


hope you all enjoy the loving memory lane. May Allah bless you all. and make this as a bounce back for new Generation to plan their weddings.

share as much as you can... and Add Old pics of wedding if you have!!!

Why are Indonesians choosing Arabic robe over sarong?

More Indonesians have taken to wearing Arabic clothing, although most won’t be able to speak a word of Arabic.

It is not uncommon these days to see a small-built man who is decidedly Indonesian wearing a turban and a flowing robe.

It does make others wonder why he doesn’t wear a peci – or songkok as it is known in Malaysia and Singapore – and the traditional sarong instead?

Similarly, an Indonesian woman clad in a loose, long garment called the burqa and whose face is hidden is clearly dressed for the hot desert conditions in the Middle East rather than the humid weather in Indonesia.

Though the wearing of Arabic robes is not uncommon in countries with Muslim populations, discussions about why this is so has never ceased, including in Indonesia, which has the world’s largest Muslim population.

President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono’s remarks on this recently are noteworthy.

Addressing a forum of rectors from state Islamic institutions of higher learning on July 23, Dr Yudhoyono recounted an exchange between an Arab leader visiting Indonesia and then Religious Affairs Minister Maftuh Basyuni.

The leader told Mr Basyuni he was shocked when he saw TV footage showing a group clad in Arabic garb committing vandalism and violence in Indonesia.

The minister explained that the men were radical elements, but the leader remarked that their actions tarnished not only the image of Islam but also that of Arabs, “because they wear Arabic clothes”, Dr Yudhyono recalled.

His mention of the issue came after members of the hardline Islamic Defenders Front (FPI) raided a Central Java brothel that had upset residents. The incident, in which a pregnant woman died after she was run over by an FPI vehicle, triggered hundreds of tweets and online blog posts demanding that the government disband the group.

The FPI, known for taking the law into its own hands, often attacked massage parlours and illicit gaming centres in the name of fighting prostitution, gambling and pornography.

Formed on Aug 17, 1998, the FPI network has since expanded to several cities outside Jakarta and its members are known to step up raids during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan. They are hard to miss because of their distinctive garb and the noise they make during an attack.

However, FPI members make up only a section of those who sport Arabic clothing.

Some Indonesians say they try to be more like Arabs and adopt their garments in order to feel more Islamic and also superior to other Muslims.

What kind of thinking is that? As Indonesians, we should be grateful for who we are and not try to pretend to be someone we are not.

Thankfully, many prominent religious leaders, including the leaders of major Muslim organisations Nahdlatul Ulama and Muhammadiyah, and members of the conservative Indonesian Ulama Council (MUI), are showing the way by sticking to traditional Indonesian Muslim attire.

A good way for Muslims here to express their gratitude to God is to show how happy we are to be Indonesians. It would be un-Islamic to be ungrateful for what we have been given.

As mainstream clerics like to teach Muslims: The more grateful you are, the more blessed you will be – and the more prosperous you will become.
