TENGKU Ampuan Pahang Tunku Azizah Aminah Maimunah Iskandariah Almarhum Sultan Iskandar Alhaj graced the opening of the Nuzul Quran celebration and #QuranHour programme, which was held at Sultan Abdullah Mosque Museum in Pekan on March 29.

Tunku Azizah also broke fast with guests who attended the event organised by the Pahang State Museum. It was an annual event held to commemorate the day the holy book of Islam, the Quran, was first revealed to the Prophet Muhammad.

The guests also listened to verses from the Surah Al-Jumuah recited by the #QuranHour team, Ustaz Tarmizi Abdul Rahman and Ustaz Tirmizi Haji Ali.

The translations and summary of the verses were delivered by Ustaz Fazrul Ismail. The three of them were from Yayasan Warisan Ummah Ikhlas (WUIF).

Pahang State Museum director Datuk Ahmad Farid Abdul Jalal said it was a fitting location to hold the event as the building was among the earliest mosques built in Pahang.

It was constructed in 1929 with Moorish design, he added.

“It was the main mosque in Pekan at that time. Then, it was turned into an Islamic Museum,” he said.

On the name, Sultan Abdullah Mosque Museum, Ahmad Farid said it was a brand name that combined two major functions, a museum and a mosque.

A museum was a place where history was recorded - a reflection of the past, present and future while a mosque served as a community centre, he added.

As such, Sultan Abdullah Mosque Museum was a place that would give the public the opportunity to learn about the past and make it something that would be beneficial in efforts to develop human and intellectual values, he said.

“It will eventually bring about the feeling of love purely for Allah SWT,” he added.

Ahmad Farid said the Sultan Abdullah Mosque Museum would be a venue where the society could congregate and have exchanges of ideas, discussions as well as a preaching channel for all, regardless of one’s religion, political beliefs and culture.

He also hoped that a programme such as this would meet its objective to reach out to everyone through the 3T formula – Tilawah, Tadabbur and Tazakkur (Recitation, Contemplation of Meanings and Awareness/Remembrance).

On the collaboration between the corporation and WUIF, Ahmad Farid said he hoped it would help further elevate the Quran as the book of guidance and reference for people in all aspects of life.
