OPENING CEREMONY OF TEDARUS AL-QURAN IN CONJUNCTION WITH RAMADHAN AT THE DEFENCE ACADEMY RBAF

TANAH JAMBU Wednesday 8 May 2019 The first Ramadhan of 1440 Hijriah fell on Tuesday, the 7th of May 2019 and was celebrated by Muslims across Brunei Darussalam. The Defence Academy is no exception in welcoming the Holy month. On Thursday night of the following day, we had our Terawih as well as Witir Prayers in the Surau Asy Syuhada. The Commandant of the Defence Academy, Colonel Hj Muhammad Haszaimi Bin Bol Hassan, was invited as the  Guest of Honour. Other Officers, PTBs and civilians were also present. The aim of having the event was to liven up and celebrate the month full with blessings.
 
After that, the Guest of Honour was invited to lead the recitation of Surah Al-Fatihah to mark the starting of Tedarus Al-Qur’an in conjunction with the holy month. The event was followed by the recitation of a Du’a before reading the Al-Qur’an. Soon after that, the Tedarus began. After the Tedarus, Surah Al-Fatihah, a Du’a after reading the Al-Qur’an and a Du’a that offers protection for the Sultan were recited.
 
To conclude, fasting can help us control our emotion and increase our spiritual, mental as well as physical strength. Fasting also allows us to feel another Muslims’ situation who are starving. Medically, fasting also allows our stomach to rest after doing its heavy role most of the time, mainly digestion.
