Over 500 students from Pengiran Anak Puteri Rashidah Saadatul Bolkiah Religious School in Seria gathered at the school’s multi-purpose hall to participate in the Nationwide Religious Programme yesterday.

The programme, themed ‘Prohibition of Adultery’, is organised monthly by MoRA through its Islamic Studies Department.

The event started with the mass recitation of Sayyidul Istighfar by the teachers and students of the school, followed by the recitation of Surah Al-Fatihah and Doa led by school teacher Muhd Azhar bin Haji Asri.

Teacher Noradie Rafini bin Md Daud delivered a talk based on the theme, highlighting the various acts considered under adultery and its punishment in Islam.

A similar programme was also held at Pengiran Anak Puteri Amal Umi Kalthum Al-Islam Mulaut Religious School in the Brunei-Muara District, Pengiran Kesuma Negara Bukit Beruang in Tutong and Pengiran Muda Mohamed Bolkiah in Temburong.
