DEFENCE ACADEMY, Wednesday, 5 June 2019 – Brunei Darussalam will be celebrating Hari Raya Aidilfitri tomorrow, Thursday, 6th June. In celebration of the arrival of Syawal, mosques and suraus across the nation resounded with the melodious and melancholic Raya takbir. Surau Asy-Syuhada was not an exception. Muslim personnel of Defence Academy were summoned to glorify the most victorious day of Allah SWT with the recital of takbir, tahmid and tasbih at the surau. Aidilfitri takbir symbolizes gratefulness and thankfulness towards the mighty Allah SWT for his blessings to the Muslim ummah.

Ramadan is the month of countless blessings where we glorified thirty nights with mass Sunat Terawih prayers, reciting zikir, reading tedarus Al-Quran and carrying out charitable deeds. The final ten nights of Ramadan were when we had the opportunity to embrace Qiyamulail where one of those nights, namely Lailatul Qadar, was bestowed upon by the Muslim ummah. Also, the event of Nuzul Al-Quran was meant to teach the Muslim ummah to assimilate Al-Quran teachings. Sadly, it has come to an end.
For Muslims who had successfully performed every pious duty and went the extra mile with increasing religious practices and deeds in Ramadan, it is time to experience the enjoyment of Syawal after a month of embracing the beauty of fasting.
