Bruneians have been utilising e-platform to conduct meetings, classes or chatting with family members and friends to support physical and social distancing measures in view of the COVID-19 outbreak in the Sultanate.

Recently, an inspiring initiative carried out was an online Tahlil ceremony among a group of friends who have recently lost a friend.

The group held the Tahlil and Surah Yaasiin recitation online using Zoom. Nasri bin Haji Marzuki said they are complying with the advice from the Minister of Health Dato Seri Setia Dr Haji Mohd Isham bin Haji Jaafar to avoid mass gathering.

“It was just an initiative between my friends and I. I hope more people will consider to perform Tahlil online, especially during this time of crisis,” he said.
