Individuals who give out endowments will be rewarded as promised by Allah the Almighty. The rewards will multiply further when the item being endowed can provide benefits to the community, and furthermore, the rewards will remain as long as the endowment still exists although the individuals have passed away. With the wish of reaping these rewards, the Pehin Khatib Abdullah mosque in Kampung Kulapis received an endowment in the form of a hearse.
The hearse key was handed over by representatives of the endowment to Yang Berhormat Pehin Udana Khatib Dato Paduka Seri Setia Ustaz Haji Awang Badaruddin bin Pengarah Dato Paduka Haji Othman, Minister of Religious Affairs, who then presented it to Haji Mohammad Burhanuddin bin Haji Damit, the mosque Imam. The mosque now has 2 new hearses which is endowed by an anonymous individual and the family of late Haji Mohiddin bin Haji Momin.
The ceremony was followed by dikir marhaban in conjunction with the birthday celebration of Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Alaihi Wassalam. Also present were Awang Haji Mohammad Serudin bin Haji Timbang, Acting Deputy Permanent Secretary for Policy and Religious at the Ministry of Religious Affairs; Awang Haji Zulkifli bin Panglima Asgar Dato Paduka Haji Abdullah, Acting Deputy Permanent Secretary for Administration and Finance at the Ministry of Religious Affairs and Doctor Abang Haji Hadzmin bin Abang Haji Taha, Acting Raes of the Seri Begawan Religious Teachers University College, KUPU SB.
