Forty participants took part in a course in funeral management procedures organised by Kampong Sungai Besar Mosque Committee. The Funeral Management Workshop gave  participants the opportunity to conduct funeral arrangements correctly.

The men’s group was guided by religious teacher Asmady Haji Ahmad and Imam of Kampong Pulaie Mosque Haji Muhammad Nuralif Haji Talib.

Meanwhile, the women’s group was guided by Nisrinah Haji Chuchu and Noradiana Haji Mohammad Japar from the Ministry of Religious Affairs.

The Secretary of the Mosque Committee Haji Zaini bin Haji Damit explained that the two-day workshop was targetted at mosque members including women and youth.

“With this workshop, participants have the opportunity to interact directly with workshop facilitators in learning the correct  way of conducting funeral management,” he said.

He hoped that the participants would apply the knowledge gained from the workshop should they hold the position as a funeral director in the future.
