The Imarah Division of the Mosque Affairs Department, in collaboration with members of the Kampong Belais Mosque Takmir Committee, held a Qiamullail programme for 50 youth members of the mosque in Temburong District.

Acting Director of the Mosque Affairs Department Haji Amir Hisham bin Haji Masri attended the Saturday segment of the two-day programme as the guest of honour.

The Qiamullail programme featured Sunnat Hajat and Sunnat Taubat prayers, followed by a mass Subuh prayer as well as the recitations of Surah Al-Mulk and Surah Al-Waqiah.

The second day saw youth participants enjoying a hike up Bukit Buda-Buda in Temburong.

The event was organised in the hope of bringing the youth in the community closer to the mosque and engaging them in mosque activities.

The programme also trained the participants to assist in administering mosque affairs.

Prior to the Qiamullail programme, the youth also attended a youth forum at the mosque to mark the 1442 Hijrah New Year.
