The pre-dawn talk at the Omar ‘Ali Saifuddien Mosque in Bandar Seri Begawan yesterday, dealt with the topic of disease and illness from an Islamic perspective.

Assistant Religious Officer at the Islamic Da’wah Centre under the Ministry of Religious Affairs (MoRA) Pengiran Haji Reduan bin Pengiran Haji Badaruddin said, “There are two kinds of illnesses: the physical kind such as cancer, heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure and leprosy. The second is the psychological or spiritual kind such as jealousy, arrogance, pride, egocentrism and grandiosity.”

Minister at the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) Dato Seri Setia Haji Awang Abdul Mokti bin Haji Mohd Daud and Acting Permanent Secretary at the MoRA Haji Mohd Serudin bin Haji Timbang were present.

Facilitated by MoRA with the support of PMO, the talk is part of the weekly Masjidku Makmur, Negara Berkat programme, to increase the number of congregants for the mass Subuh prayer at the Omar ‘Ali Saifuddien Mosque.
