KUALA LUMPUR Oct 29 — Muslims in the country today expressed their love and affection for Prophet Muhammad through various programmes organised in conjunction with the Maulidur Rasul celebration while embracing the new norms.
This year’s celebration focuses on the hosting of virtual programmes as well as at mosques while adhering to the standard operating procedures, a stark contrast from previous years where thousands of Muslims would take part in parades across the country to commemorate the historic moment of the birth of the Prophet.
The Malaysian Islamic Development Department (JAKIM) hosted a two-day programme entitled ‘Semarak Cinta Rasul’, broadcast live on TV1 and Jakim Facebook starting yesterday.
Among the segments was a musical talk show that went on air at 10.30 am today, as well as a special forum, ‘Forum Perdana Ehwal Islam’ which is slated for broadcast at 9 pm tonight.
Several programmes were held yesterday such as the reciting of the Quran, a special screening of a video titled ‘Muhammad’ and a preaching segment by Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department (Religious Affairs) Datuk Seri Dr Zulkifli Mohamad Al-Bakri.
