KHATAM AL-QUR'AN CEREMONY IN SCHOOL

Friday, 28th July, 2013 ~ The annual event of "Khatam Al-Qur'an" was held in school. It was to mark the success of the school community to finish reading the holy book of Koran. Much earlier, starting from the first week of Ramadhan, Muslim students and teachers had divided and read through pages of Koran together("tadarrus").

THE "TADARRUS" SESSION



THE "KHATAM" CEREMONY








During the ceremony, we first recited the last few "surah" (chapters) of the Qur'an, followed by the prayer recitation. Then, souvenirs were given away to students who had taken part in the "tadarrus" session and lastly, donation was given to unfortunate students for the Eid celebration.

This should be the last school activity for the month of Ramadhan before we all go for our long break to celebrate Eid. How time flies. We are now already one week away from the first day of Eid. So many things yet to be done and so little time. *sigh*
