Government Agencies Organise Maulidur Rasul celebrations

VARIOUS government agencies commemorated Prophet Muhammad’s (SAW) birthday anniversary yesterday by hosting celebrations.

The Civil Service Department organised a Maulud Nabi celebration at the Civil Service Club in Kg Mentiri with Ustaz Hj Mohd Khairul Nazif Hj Damit, an assistant lecturer from Universiti Islam Sultan Sharif Ali (UNISSA), invited to deliver a talk.

 Ustaz Hj Mohd Khairul Nazif urged civil service employees to take example from how Prophet Muhammad (SAW) conducted himself when carrying out tasks and responsibilities.

He said the Prophet (SAW) was always on time, never failed to deliver messages to those who were supposed to receive them and was honest as well as sincere in carrying out his duties.

He also reminded them to follow the Prophet’s (SAW) practice of reading the Quran daily even at work, as it will remind them of their religious obligations and the hereafter.

Present as the guest of honour was the Acting Director-General of the Civil Service Department, Hj Abdul Manap Othman.

A similar event was held by the Ministry of Finance where a lecturer from the Ministry of Religious Affairs (MoRA), Md Yussof Hj Abdul Majid, was invited to give a talk on Jiwa-Jiwa Yang Dididik Rasulullah SAW or Souls Educated by Rasulullah SAW.

Md Yussof highlighted the history of the companions of the Prophet (SAW) and their love for him, saying that the life of the Prophet (SAW) should be a reminder to Muslims to never give up, as he never backed down from any problems he faced in his life.

Present as the guest of honour at the event was Dato Paduka Hj Hisham Hj Md Hanifah, the acting minister of finance II.

The Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) and its departments held a similar ceremony at its headquarters on Jalan Kumbang Pasang, with Ustaz Hj Sammali Hj Adam, head of the public relations unit at UNISSA, invited to deliver a talk related to the sunnah of Prophet Muhammad (SAW).

Present as the guest of honour was the Acting Minister of Energy and Industry at the PMO, Dato Paduka Hj Hamdan Hj Abu Bakar.
