IN LINE with the identity of Sultan Omar Ali Saifuddien (SOAS) Mosque as ‘Raudhah al-Zikir’, a Halaqah Zikir programme for government officers, private sector employees and students was held yesterday, the seventh of its kind this year.
The programme is held monthly to answer His Majesty the Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam’s call to mould the Sultanate into a Zikir nation and to pray for the well-being of the people and country. It is also intended to encourage virtuous deeds.
The Halaqah Zikir was led by mosque officers comprising Pehin-Pehin Khatib and Mudim-Mudim. Mass Hajat prayers, recitation of Surahs and selected Zikir including the reading of a special prayer were also held.
Sunat Hajat prayers and the recitation of the Surah Al-Waqiah were led by Pehin Khatib Dato Paduka Awg Hj Emran bin Hj Kunchang while the special Doa for Halaqah Zikir was read by Awg Zilkifli bin Hj Murat, SOAS mosque administrator.
