Diligence in performing prayers and keeping prayers early are among the characteristics of pious people. Those who are devout will feel greatness in the presence of Allah the Almighty.
Haji Muhammad Hanafi bin Haji Zaini, a speaker from the MABIMS Centre for Al-Quran Studies and Dissemination, highlighted this at a dawn talk in commemorating Israk Mikraj at the Kampong Sungai Besar Mosque on Sunday.
According to him, it is difficult to purify the heart in performing prayers. “However, if we are able to maintain good manners during prayers, it will calm the heart.”
“Prayer is the core of life and it is important to perform it without delaying it as it brings many benefits to our daily life,” he added.
The talk organised by the Kampong Sungai Besar Mosque Committee was also attended by mosque advisor Haji Awang Mohiddin bin Pengarah Dato Paduka Haji Awang Othman.
