‘Minal Masjid Ilal Masjid’ congregants distributed donations to asnaf (poor and destitute) families and orphans in the Belait District on Sunday.

Jangsak mosque Imam Haji Kamaludin bin Haji Rahim led the group in handing out donations at the Kampong Pandan Mosque and Muhammad Jamalul Alam Mosque.

Ten asnaf families and 10 orphans received basic daily necessities and school materials at the Kampong Pandan Mosque, while five asnaf families and five orphans received donations at the Muhammad Jamalul Alam Mosque.

The charity initiative comes under the Minal Masjid Ilal Masjid’s visiting mosque to mosque programme involving mosque congregants from Zone 3 mosques in the Brunei-Muara District.

Such initiative is carried out both locally and abroad. However in view of the COVID-19 pandemic, the plan to head to Batam, Indonesia has been put on hold.
