'Kelebihan Istighfar' or 'Benefits of Seeking for Allah's Forgiveness' was among the matters discussed in the Bicara Muslimah Programme which aspires to create a Muslims community that practises istighfar as a zikir or way of remembering Allah in daily life. The programme especially for the Brunei Muara District Muslimah Guidance Class is part of the Omar Ali Saifuddien Mosque Diamond Jubilee Celebration.

The programme was organised by the Muslimah Affairs Section, Mosque Affairs Department and Omar Ali Saifuddien Mosque Takmir Committee. The ceremony began with the recital of Surah Al-Fatihah led by Datin Hajah Nahriah binti Haji Asbi, wife of the Minister of Religious Affairs. Aside from the benefits of Istighfar, Dayang Hajah Zunainah binti Haji Gunong, Senior Religious Officer at the Hajj Management Department, also touched on the lessons from the hijrah or migration of Prophet Muhammad's Sallallahu Alaihi Wassalam. Every muslimah is hoped to improve her knowledge and understanding of the true meaning of hijrah as a motivation to become a pious mukminah besides being involved in spreading the eminence of Islam.
