Prayer is an act of worship that is placed in an exalted position. If a Muslim diligently performs the Five times Daily Prayers, it is as if they are upholding the religion. It is considered weak-minded if one sees the prayer as disrupting the routine of daily tasks. The matter was one of the contents of a talk during the Isra' Mi'raj Celebration organized by The Ministry of Energy. The ceremony was held yesterday afternoon at the Prime Minister's Office Building at Jalan Perdana Menteri.
Present was Dato Seri Paduka Awang Haji Matsatejo bin Sokiaw, Acting Minister of Energy. In the talk titled, "Teladan dan Hikmah Peristiwa Isra' dan Mi'raj", Awang Haji Mohd Khairul Nazif bin Haji Awang Damit, Assistant Lecturer at the Faculty of Usuludin, Sultan Sharif Ali Islamic University, UNISSA, explained that prayers can teach time management. He added that negligence will badly affect mankind's record of religious practices. The annual ceremony was co-organised by the Permanent Secretary Office, Policy and Strategy Department, and The Department of Manpower, Ministry of Energy.
