Al-Quran is the greatest miracle bestowed by Allah Subhanahu Wataala to Prophet Muhammad Salallahu Alaihi Wassalam and it is the only kitab or book of which the purity of the contents has been protected. As muslims, we must glorify the Quran by maintaining its purity, reading as well as practising the teachings embedded in it to gain blessings and its rewards. Last night, the Opening Ceremony of the Tadarus Al-Quran was held, immediately after the Tarawih prayers. The ceremony was organised by the Ministry of Religious Affairs through the Mosque Affairs Department in collaboration with the Omar 'Ali Saifuddien Mosque Takmir Committee.
The ceremony commenced with the reading of surah al-Fatihah led by Yang Berhormat Pehin Udana Khatib Dato Paduka Seri Setia Ustaz Haji Awang Badaruddin bin Pengarah Dato Paduka Haji Awang Othman, Minister of Religious Affairs.
The function earlier started with a Tadabbur Al-Quran delivered by Awang Haji Yussof bin Haji Majid, Grade 1 Special Duties Officer, Ministry of Religious Affairs.
Glorifying the mosque, surau and religious hall with the reading of Al-Quran is one of the Islamic eminence especially if it is carried out in the month of Ramadan. Also present was Pengiran Dato Seri Paduka Haji Bahrom bin Pengiran Haji Bahar, Deputy Minister of Religious Affairs.
