Mosque congregational prayers bring multiple rewards 1

MOSQUES are the houses of Allah the Almighty, and those who frequently go to mosques to perform prayers and pious acts in congregation receive multiple rewards compared to performing prayers individually.

They (mosques) are a platform for us to multiply our good deeds and to gain blessings from Allah the Almighty for us, our family and the nation.

These points were highlighted during the weekly Masjidku Makmur, Negara Berkat programme held at the Omar ‘Ali Saifuddien Mosque in the capital yesterday.

The weekly programme is organised by the Ministry of Religious Affairs and the Prime Minister’s Office to encourage more congregants to perform Subuh prayer in congregation as a self reflection exercise and to glorify the mosque.

Joining the programme and Subuh prayer were Minister at the Prime Minister’s Office Dato Seri Setia Haji Awang Abdul Mokti bin Haji Mohd Daud; Chief Syar’ie Judge Pehin Orang Kaya Paduka Seri Utama Dato Paduka Seri Setia Ustaz Haji Awang Salim bin Haji Besar;

Syariah Appeal Court Judge Pehin Orang Kaya Paduka Setia Raja Dato Paduka Seri Setia Haji

Awang Suhaili bin Haji Mohiddin; Syariah High Court Judge Pengiran Dato Seri Setia Haji Mohd Tashim bin Pengiran Haji Hassan; Deputy Permanent Secretary (Policy and Religious) at the Ministry of Religious Affairs Haji Mohd Serudin bin Haji Timbang; and residents from the area.

The religious event also featured the dawn talk ‘Seeking Blessings of Supplication from Angels’ by a judge from the Syariah Subordinate Court of the State Judiciary Department

Ustaz Haji Kaharudin bin Mohd Ali. The programme, which kickstarts the weekly Bandarku Ceria activity in the capital, is aimed at providing Bandarku Ceria participants the opportunity to seek blessings through prayer before starting their day’s activities.
