The Kampong Sungai Akar Consultative Council and the Rashidah Sa'adatul Bolkiah Mosque Takmir Committee yesterday afternoon held a 50 times Khatam Al-Quran ceremony in conjunction with the Golden Jubilee of His Majesty the Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam's Accession to the Throne. The monitoring of Al-Quran reading for the 50 times Khatam Al-Quran will be conducted in the form of six 'Tasmik' or checks, before the Khatam Al-Quran closing ceremony is held in October. The first tasmik session was held at the Rashidah Sa'adatul Bolkiah Mosque in Kampong Sungai Akar.
The ceremony began with the mass reading of Al-Quran verses from the fifth Juzuk or chapter led by the appointed Head of Tasmik from among participants in each Halaqah and followed by checking of individual readers under the scrutiny of the Head of Tasmik. The first reading and Tasmik was divided into 15 halaqah. 185 participants took part in the ceremony.
