I went to perform my Aidilfitri Prayers at one of my favourite mosque's @ Masjid Jamek Azzubair Ibnul Awwam at Taman Tenaga, Cheras, 56100, Kuala Lumpur this morning.
The prayers started at 0830am and followed by an Aidilfitri Khutbah by the Chief Imam Al Ustaz Hazman.
Among the contents of the Khutbah was asking the Muslims to forgive and forget past enmity between themselves if there was any and to forge a stronger, more compassionate relationship between family members and also towards neighbours and members of society.
Ustaz Hazman also reminded those attending the prayers to wait after the Solat Aidilfitri and sit to listen to the Khutbah after the prayers for leaving the masjid early will not complete the blessings they will get for attending this prayers.
But as usual, there were quite a few who left after the Salaam! Hmmm! Talk about preaching to the wall! I just can't understand such folks who do not give a hoot to what the Imam was saying!
Same scenario at every Juma'at prayers! Ignorance or plain dimwits at large? God knows!
The Khutbah ended with a session of greeting each member of the remaining congregation and members of the masjid committee.
The main attraction was of course, the Chief Imam, Ustaz Hazman, an Imam who is much loved by us all, for his humble personality and wisdom beyond his age!
May Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala bless him with the best of this life and the hereafter!
