Lebaran.com - As a country with Muslims majority populations, Ramadan is very special month for all of Indonesian especially The Muslims. Ramadan in Indonesia is not just religious ritual, more than that; it has been part of Indonesian traditions. There are many unique traditions in Indonesia to welcome the holy month of Ramadan.

In West Java, Pasundan, where the majority of people there are Muslims there are a unique tradition to welcome Ramadan and it’s called Munggahan. Munggahan shows how Sundanese Muslims in West Java see Ramadan as a very special blissful month. The good welcoming to Ramadan than is a must. In Munggahan, Sundanese Muslims will come to their home town and get together with their big family just like in mudik. Usually Sundanese Muslims will go to their home town a day before Ramadan is started, get together and forgive each other so the souls of them will be clean to face the Holy Month of Ramadan.

Munggahan is just like small Lebaran season because it is very similar with that. There are huge flows of traffic because a lot of Sundanese Muslims will go to their home town in the same time. People also will buy a lot of delicious food and wear their best clothes to first Tarawih pray. The different is the purpose of Munggahan is to welcome Ramadan while Lebaran is celebrating the victory day of Eid al-Fitr.

In Munggahan, people will only spent short time in their home town before come back to the city because they still have to work while fasting in Ramadan. But since the first day of fasting in Ramadan is usually a holiday, some people even will have their first early breakfast or sahur in their home town and come back to the city. The tradition of Munggahan in Sundanese Muslims shows us how Islam has been combined with our original culture and makes a new tradition with both elements. It enriches the culture of Sunda and will improve the quality of our Islāmic understanding.
