    Rokiah Mahmud

    Datin Paduka Seri Dayang Hajah Mariam binti Haji Abdul Aziz, the patron of Pusat Ehsan Al-Ameerah Al-Hajjah Maryam, attended a Doa Kesyukuran ceremony to mark the completion of the centre’s surau in Kampong Bengkurong yesterday.

    She installed one of the last tiles on the wall which was followed by a Selawat.

    Minister of Religious Affairs Pehin Udana Khatib Dato Paduka Seri Setia Ustaz Haji Awang Badaruddin bin Pengarah Dato Paduka Haji Awang Othman also installed a tile as President of Brunei Islamic Religious Council – the largest donor (amounting to BND400,000) to the construction fund.

    Turkish Ambassador to Brunei Darussalam Professor Dr Hamit Ersoy also installed a tile as sponsor of tiles, mural works, calligraphy and the surau’s decorations. The items, especially flown in from Turkiye, cost BND104,919.07.

    The new surau can accommodate 100 congregants and is equipped with two classrooms.
