Wais Kedayan Belait in collaboration with the Kampong Sungai Teraban Mosque Takmir Committee held a clean-up of the mosque and its surroundings recently.

Kampong Sungai Teraban Acting Village Head Zaini bin Haji Kaderi accompanied members of the Kampong Sungai Teraban Village Consultative Council in the spruce up.

Wais Kedayan Belait committee member Kifli bin Haji Azahari said this was the group’s second cleaning campaign, with the first being held earlier in March.

“In conducting the campaign today, it is important to instil love and appreciation for the mosque, while also helping to promote cooperation, particularly among the Kedayan communities, in building silaturahim,” he said.

He hoped the campaign will inspire others to follow suit to clean-up mosques and religious halls across the country.

The campaign included the clearing of the front atrium of the mosque and drainage, as well as pruning overgrown trees.
