SOME 31 participants from the Belait Youth Association (PEMBELA) and executive committee members took part in a Dikir programme at Muhammad Jamalul Alam mosque in Belait to mark the birth anniversary of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh).
The programme was conducted by the Belait branch of the Youth and Sports Department, and the Mosque Affairs Department. Present as the chief guest was Hj Asminan bin Hj Chuchu, Head of Religious Officer for the Belait district.
It was hoped that the programme could instil the sense of love towards the Prophet in the youths, as well as to get them acquainted with spiritual activities in line with the country’s aspiration to be a Zikir nation.
A member of the association, Hj Abd Khalid Zainuddin, commented, “Through this programme, it would not only open up my interest to deepen (my understanding) and learn more about Dikir, which I have never learned before, but also to cement closer ties among the Ummah.”
Another participant, Nur Najibah Abdul Manaf, said this was her first time taking part in the 12th nightly Dikir and she was excited to be able involved in the programme and learn more about Dikir Maulud.
