Congregants of Kampong Sungai Besar Mosque held a Khatam Al-Quran after completing the recitation of 30 Juzuks of Al-Quran after Subuh prayer on Sunday.

Twelve congregants participated in the ceremony.

The mosque’s Takmir committee secretary Haji Zaini bin Haji Damit expressed his gratefulness for the efforts of Al-Quran readers. He said besides gaining blessings from Allah the Almighty, reading Al-Quran will provide protection for an individual and their family.

The gathering began with the recitation of Surah Al-Fatihah followed by Surah-Surah Lazim led by Head of Bilal at the mosque Abdul Wafi bin Ismail.

A similar ceremony was organised by the Senior Citizens Association at the International Convention Centre in Berakas yesterday.

It began with Doa Tahlil and Doa by representative Haji Ariffin @ Nipah bin Haji Hassan.

One hundred senior citizens across all four districts joined in on the religious event.
