Islam is a religion of peace, unity and based on love for one another. In this blessed month, in addition to the five daily prayers, Muslims also perform the commendable Sunat Tarawih prayers and increase the reading of Al-Quran and zikir or remembrance of Allah. This was among the matters shared by Sheikh Hassan Metwally Abdel Rahman Sewify, a guest Imam or prayer leader from the Arab Republic of Egypt, in an interview with RTB, last night about Islam and the practices carried out in the country in Ramadhan.
In relation to Brunei Darussalam which is known as the zikir nation, the guest Imam or prayer leader from the Arab Republic of Egypt added, the sovereignty of this country is due to always remembering Allah the Mighty at all times. He went on to say, reading the holy Quran is one of the best practices to endear oneself to Allah Subhanahuwataala.
Sheikh Hassan Metwally Abdel Rahman Sewify from the Arab Republic of Egypt is in the country until 11th of this month. The initiative to invite a guest Imam or prayer leader provides a different atmosphere brought by the Al-Quran reading of the imam which also enhances the mass prayer.
