AS PART of the religious obligation in helping Muslims, particularly in ushering in the New Year 1436 Hijrah, Nazmi Textile has contributed seven sets of 50” Phillips Flat Screen television to the Mohamed Bolkiah Mosque to fulfil the needs of the congregants.
The official handover of the television sets took place at the Mohamed Bolkiah Mosque where on hand to present the contribution to the Deputy Minister of Religious Affairs, Pengiran Dato Paduka Hj Bahrom bin Pengiran Hj Bahar, was Nazmi’s Managing Director/Proprietor, Nazeer Ahmad Zackariah during the nationwide mosque cleaning campaign to mark New Year 1436 Hijrah.
The Head of Imam at the Mohamed Bolkiah Mosque, Imam Hj Muslim Hj Abd Razak expressed his deepest appreciation on behalf of the Mosque Takmir Committee to Nazeer Ahmad Zackariah for providing the much needed facility at the mosque.
The installation of these flat screen televisions, he added, will give congregants the opportunity to listen and watch the Friday Sermon as before the installation of these television sets, Friday congregants were unable to have a view of the Imam reading the Friday sermon.
He further noted that this is not the first time that Nazmi Textile has presented ‘Wakaf’ to the mosque as they have previously contributed several Wakaf to facilitate the needs of the mosque such as installation of carpets, prizes for religious activities as well as food during the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) celebration.
Asked on the flow of contribution to the mosque over the past years, Imam Hj Muslim said that to date the mosque has no problems in receiving Wakaf from the public as there are a lot who have come forward to contribute Wakaf items for the ease of the mosque‘s daily operations with the hope of getting blessings from Allah the Almighty.
Nazeer Ahmad said that first Muharram 1436 Hijrah is a very special day for Muslims and in commemorating this, he decided to do the Wakaf for the mosque for the convenience of the congregants as well as facilitate religious activities in the mosque.
“Alhamdulillah, we are given another chance by Allah the Almighty to celebrate the new holy year of Islam 1436. 1 Muharram 1436H marks the anniversary of the journey of Nabi Muhammad SAW and his followers from Makkah to Madinah.”
In today’s context, he added, it is our journey to seek a better life in the hereafter by improving our knowledge on Islam, improving our practice of Islam and improving our Iman, all in the name of Allah the Almighty and Islam.
“Alhamdulillah, to celebrate this very special day, in the name of Allah the Almighty, I sincerely would like to contribute seven flat screen televisions to Mohamed Bolkiah Mosque, Kg Serusop. I wish that these added facilities will help our fellow congregants, especially during the Friday prayers, follow and listen to the Friday Sermons (Khutbah) more easily as well as other Islamic occasions such as a conversion ceremony, bertahlil and Khatam Al-Quran.”
