Gift from Sharifah Hendon’s kenduri arwah


(Personal collection of Raja Mimi Razman)

Following the demise of a Muslim person, it is usual for a tahlil (which literally means ‘the recital of la ila ha illallah‘ in Arabic) ceremony (also known as kenduri arwah) to be performed 100 days after the date of passing. Door gifts are sometimes given to the guests attending at the end of the ceremony, like the one above, given out at the kenduri arwah for Sharifah Hendon Syed Hassan Shahabuddin, the wife of Raja Razman (Ku Nick) Raja Abdul Hamid.
