THE Kampong Putat community yesterday celebrated Maulidur Rasul or Maulud Nabi – the birthday anniversary of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) and one of the most important dates in the Islamic calendar – with a 2.5-kilometre procession that began from the Kg Putat Herb Recreational Park, moved towards TelBru and the DST tower, and then ended at the Kg Putat Mosque in Mukim Lumapas.
Organised by the Kg Putat Consultative Coun-cil, the celebration, which also aimed to foster closer ties amongst all, began with a recitation of Dikir Marhaban and call of Selawat in praise of the prophet by the village’s residents and youth.
Among the event’s participants was Legislative Council (LegCo) member, YB Awg Hj Jumat bin Akim, the Head of Kg Putat.
To further enliven the programme, a special lecture was also delivered by Ustaz Dr Hj Ismuha-di bin Hj Abdullah from the Islamiah Dakwah Centre.
