Reciting the Istighfar or seeking Allah's forgiveness is among the greatness of dawn and the time related to it because the reward of Heaven is high. Meanwhile, the reward for praying two raakat before dawn prayer is better than the world and everything in it. The matter was highlighted in a talk during the "Masjidku Makmur, Negara Berkat" at Omar Ali Saifuddien Mosque early yesterday morning.
The congregants included Yang Berhormat Dato Seri Setia Haji Awang Abdul Mokti bin Haji Mohd Daud; Minister at the Prime Minister's Office and Dato Seri Setia Haji Abdul Aziz bin Orang Kaya Maharaja Lela Haji Yussof; Permanent Secretary at the Ministry of Religious Affairs. The Tazkirah Subh or dawn talk titled 'Pejuang Fajar' was delivered by Awang Muhammad Yussof bin Haji Abdul Majid, Special Duties Officer Grade 2 of the Counselling and Religious Understanding Unit, Ministry of Religious Affairs. He said people who perform dawn prayer will receive the perfect enlightenment on the Day of Reckoning and the Malaikat or Angles will pray for increased wealth of those who give alms at dawn. Awang Muhammad Yussof also said for reciting Zikir after the dawn prayer until sunrise and then praying two rakaat, the reward is like performing the Haj and Umrah.
The congregants then read Surah Ar-Rahman for the Knowledge Programme in conjunction with the Isra' Mi'raj. The programme ended with the launch of Pejuang Fajar Programme in the Da'wah Academy 2.0 Programme by Dato Seri Setia Awang Haji Abd Aziz.
