A funeral management workshop was recently held at Kampong Bunut Mosque for 38 participants to understand the proper way of handling a Jenazah (a deceased).

Awangku Ahmad Fathurrahman Nur Firdaus bin Pengiran Haji Hassanudin, Imama Awang Haji Burhanuddin bin Haji Damit and Norlila binti Mohammad facilitated the workshop.

Among the topics covered were the proper way to wash the body, the proper way of wrapping the body, prayers for the deceased and how to bury the body in accordance with the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh).

The objective of the workshop was to equip the participants with the know-how of organising and managing a funeral, encourage more individuals to consider becoming a penggapai (an individual who handles the preparation of a body for burial) as well as the knowledge of Fardhu Kifayah.
