“This is the second phase of the programme, the continuation of the first phase which was implemented in 2019.

“We will always keep track of the mosque’s latest development through various ways such as the Bijak Iqra programme,” he said after presenting the donation to Masjid Al-Falah at Kampung Nyelitak here.

Meanwhile, he said the current edition of the Kembara Ramadan programme also contributed financial assistance to Masjid Darul Muslimin at Kampung Salak and Surau Al-Hijrah at Sungai Tapang.

“I would like to thank the benefactors for helping and supporting the asnaf and Muslim converts.

Meanwhile, Harakah Islamiah (Hikmah) Kampung Nyelitak area supervisor Mohd Ridzuan Amer Abdullah expressed his gratitude towards the contribution by Masjid Darul Ibadah.

“As a preacher, I want everyone to be able to enjoy the contribution because not everyone who lives here has a monthly salary.

“This assistance can ease their burdens in preparing themselves to welcome the arrival of Ramadan and Aidilfitri,” he said.
