THE Al-Quran reading group of Kampong Sungai Besar Mosque held its first Khatam Al-Quran recently for this year to further glorify the mosque.

The mosque’s Head Imam Pengiran Haji Solehin bin Pengiran Haji Tajuddin said, “We are grateful that the mosque worshippers continue to hold such Al-Quran reading after the Subuh prayer to gain multiple rewards and enliven the place of worship.”

The ceremony began with the recitation of Surah Al-Fatihah and Surah-Surah Lazim led by Rahim bin Begawan Pehin Siraja Khatib Dato Seri Setia Haji Mohd Tamin, with recitation of Takhtim and Doa Khatam by Imam Pengiran Haji Mohd Solehin.

Imam Pengiran Haji Solehin noted, “We are glad that we are able to hold Khatam Al-Quran monthly last year and aim to continue such religious tradition throughout this year.

“The mosque is planning to arrange activities to attract all worshippers, including children, to love the mosque and hopes for support from the committee members to make the programme a success. The programme has received overwhelming response from the congregants and members of the public.”
