Twenty-three new converts in Brunei-Muara District received a donation of basic necessities from the Islamic Da’wah Centre (PDI) through the Muallaf Development Section (welfare) in collaboration with the Nationwide Converts Association (NCA) through the Fathul Barakah 2.0 Project yesterday.

The event was carried out at two separate areas – Kampong Bebuloh group for 13 recipients and Kampong Bengkurong to Sengkurong group for 10 recipients.

PDI Director Haji Abdul Rajid bin Haji Mohd Salleh led the Kampong Bebuloh group while Acting Senior Religious Officer Hajah Siti Rahmah binti Haji Julaihi led the Kampong Bengkurong group.

The event began with the recitation of Surah Al-Fatihah and Doa by a PDI officer, followed by the two groups heading out to the designated residences.

The project marked one of the PDI and NCA’s initiatives in providing an opportunity for the public to contribute basic necessities to Asnaf converts ahead of the holy month of Ramadhan.
