Alhamdulillah wa shukrulillah, we're very grateful to be among the audience at Masjid Sultan in Singapore today, 4th of Muharram 1434 Hijri.
The event was organized to commemorate the arrival of the new hijri year and to reflect on the struggles (jihad) undertaken by Prophet Muhammad s.a.w especially the episodes surrounding his migration (hijrah) to Madinah with one special sahabi (companion), the one whom Allah Himself has honored by making reference to him in the Qur'an - none other than Sayyidina Abu Bakar As-Siddiq.
The beautiful majlis at the ever resplendent Sultan Mosque began with the recitation of Quranic verses 38 to 41 of Surah At Taubah by imam of the masjid, Ustaz Abdul Hakim of the Philippines, followed by tausiyah by Ustaz Mohamad Hasbi bin Hassan, Ustaz Ali bin Haji Muhammad and Ustaz Feisal. The majlis was made merrier with performances by several qasidah and mawlid groups including Maadihul Mustafa and the Singapore Haqqani Ensemble.
Highlights of the event, which started at 8 a.m. and ended at Dhuhur, was the congregational Solatul Hajat and the ijazah for Surah An-Nasr by Ustaz Mohamad Hasbi bin Hassan.
In the meantime, here are some amateurish photos taken at the majlis. Will be sharing notes from the tausiyah later InshaAllah. We've just arrived in KL, Alhamdulillah.
