KUCHING: The Sarawak Islamic Council (MIS) will organise a “Ijtimak” religious gathering from Oct 31 to Nov 1 with the aim of strengthening the management and administration of the mosque and surau management committees.

Themed “Masjid 5 Bintang — Pengurusan Berprestij”, the event will be participated by the mosque and surau management committees of Kuching, Samarahan and Serian divisions.

“Apart from strengthening the understanding of the role of the mosque as a centre for community development in various aspects of knowledge, this programme will also clarify the concept of ‘mukim’ as an effort to strengthen the capacity of the Muslim community.

“At the same time, it can also indirectly strengthen the relationship between mosque and surau management committees with government and private agencies and non-governmental organisations (NGOs) through strong, effective and efficient cooperation,” said Assistant Minister in the Chief Department Minister (Islamic Affairs and DBKU) Datuk Dr Abdul Rahman Junaidi in a press conference here, yesterday.

He added Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg is expected to attend the closing ceremony on Nov 1.

Further elaborating, he said MIS will also hold the state-level Al-Quran Recitation ceremony on Nov 7 to 10 at the Sarawak Islamic Complex Hall.

“A total of 25 Qaris and 25 Qariahs will take part in the ‘tilawah’ (recitation) and ‘hafazan’(memorisation) categories, with the theme ‘Ummah Rabbani Negara Harmoni’,” said Dr Abdul Rahman, who is also the Assistant Minister of Utilities (Water Supply).

Also present were MIS president Datuk Misnu Taha, Kuching Resident Sherrina Hussaini and Sarawak Islamic Affairs Department (Jais) director Khalidi Ibrahim.
