In NEGRI SEMBILAN, the Yang di-Pertuan Besar, Tuanku Muhriz Ibni Almarhum Tuanku Munawir and Tunku Ampuan Besar Tengku Aishah Rohani Tengku Besar Mahmud performed the prayers at the Tuanku Munawir Royal Mosque in Seri Menanti, Kuala Pilah.
After the prayers, Tuanku Muhriz visited the royal mausoleum there for a 'tahlil' session led by the Negri Sembilan mufti, Datuk Mohd Yusof Ahmad.
His Royal Highness also witnessed the sacrificial slaughter of 20 animals, Bernama reported.
Over in ALOR SETAR the Al-ihsan Mosque Seberang Perak slaughtered 13 heads cattle costing a total of RM54,600.
