The Sunnat Hajat prayer is part of ‘Meraih Berkah Kluster 3’ programme, which began 39 days before students sit for the PSR examinations and to improve the achievement of passing percentage for 2017.

The programme is meant to ensure that the schools in Cluster 3 will continue to strive spiritually apart from academic form and to ensure that all efforts undertaken in acquiring knowledge have received blessings from Allah the Almighty.
