THE Beribi Religious School held a Khatam Al-Quran ceremony for 112 of its afternoon session (Primary 6) students, after they completed 30 Juzuks of Al-Quran, at the school’s multipurpose hall yesterday.
Acting Director of Islamic Studies at the Ministry of Religious Affairs (MoRA) Haji Shamshol bin Haji Omar was the guest of honour.
The religious ceremony began with the recitation of Surah Al-Fatihah led by the guest of honour followed by the mass recitation of verses of Al-Quran from Surah Adh-Dhuha until Surah Al-Masad by the Khatam participants.
The event was further enlivened with the recitation of Dikir Marhaban, sprinkling of scented flowers and presentation of certificates to the Khatam participants which concluded the ceremony.
The ceremony’s objectives, apart from inculcating love towards reading Al-Quran, were to train the students to practise reading Al-Quran as part of their daily life and to promote cooperation among teachers, students, parents and guardians.
The Khatam Al-Quran ceremony was part of the school’s annual activity in its effort towards realising the government’s goal in generating an Al-Quran-literate generation.
