IN ACHIEVING the aspiration of His Majesty the Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam to establish Brunei Darussalam as a Zikir Nation, a ‘Halaqah Zikir’ programme was held yesterday at the Omar ‘Ali Saifuddien Mosque in the capital.
The function was organised for civil servants, private companies and students with the aim to highlight the identity of the mosque as a “Raudhah Al-Zikr” or Taman Zikir.
The function began with a mass Sunnat prayer, followed by the recitation of Surah Al-Waqiah led by the Imam of Omar ‘Ali Saifuddien Mosque, Begawan Pehin Khatib Dato Paduka Hj Hamidon bin Begawan Pehin Siraja Khatib Dato Paduka Seri Setia Hj Abd Hamid.
A special Doa in Halaqah Zikir was also recited to seek blessings from Allah the Almighty for the country to be successful, greatly rewarded and safe from any disaster.
