Institut Tahfiz Al-Quran Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah (ITQSHHB) students learnt to shoulder social responsibilities during their Mahabbah programme recently.

The programme included providing community service as well as helping in distributing Waqaf (endowment) to selected mosques in Brunei Darussalam. It also instilled the spirit of volunteerism among the students and inculcated a culture of both teamwork and self-dependence.

The Community and Recreational Unit along with teachers and students distributed Waqaf and Infaaq of essential equipment and assistance to selected mosques and houses.

The selected mosques were: Kampong Kasat Mosque, led by Ustaz Pengiran Haji Amiruddin bin Pengiran Haji Awang Damit; Kampong Putat Mosque, led by Ustaz Haji Sujairi bin Haji Dollah; houses of families of lower socio-economy category in Mukim Lumapas, led by Ustazah Pengiran Hajah Shahrul Bariah binti Pengiran Haji Kamaluddin; and other families led by Ustazah Hajah Rostinah binti Haji Yahya.
