IN LINE with the identity of the Omar ‘Ali Saifuddien Mosque as ‘Raudhah Al-Zikr’, the mosque recently held a Halaqah Zikir for government officials, private sector members and students. It is held once a month and yesterday’s event was the eighth this year.
The aims were to answer call by His Majesty the Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam to make Brunei Darussalam a Zikir Nation, to make Zikir as a daily practice for every officer and staff of the government departments, private sector and students and to pray for the well-being of the officers and staff as well as the students and the nation.
It was also to seek blessings for success, free the country from calamities and emphasise the noble Islamic values amongst officers and staff.
The Halaqah Zikir was led by officers from the Omar ‘Ali Saifuddien Mosque comprising Pehin-Pehin Khatib and Mudim-Mudim. The event also included mass Sunnat Hajat prayers, recitation of Surahs and selected Zikir and the reading of special Doa. It is also hoped that such programme would attain its target to strengthen the faith of the participants in order to receive such blessings.
