TAWAU: Parents in the district are reminded not to sideline the learning of AL-Quran for the young generation.
Sabah Deputy Minister of Resource Development and IT Technology, Datuk Hamisa Samat, said if the learning on Al-Quran is not prioritized, the youth will not be able to fully read the holy book.
“Children need to be encouraged to learn Al-Quran, and it should be cultivated within them as a guide for their life,” she said during the district level Tilawah Al-Quran ceremony, at Dewan Hadanah Centre,” here.
Hamisa said Al-Quran should be taught at home by parents and made as part of the culture of Muslim communities.
The young generation, she explained, will be prone to social problems such as drug addiction if they lack religious knowledge.
“We want our children to be a good person and lead the country in the future,” she said.
Also present were Tawau Municipal Council President, Alijus Sipil, and the 10 qari and qariah participants. –SayangSabah
