Irfan’s school raised enough money to build a dedicated surau not just for the students and staff, but is open for the public. We attended its opening ceremony which also had Maghrib, Isha’ and Tarawikh prayers.
The school principle was on hand with the PTA president to commemorate the event with a plaque.
There was a tazkirah by an uztadh from Al Hijrah TV station.
For iftar, we broke fast with some dates, then we performed Maghrib prayers before having a meal.
After that it was time for Isha’, Tarawikh and Witr prayers. The surau is a comfortable sanctuary, which Irfan has used for Zuhur prayers before coming home after school during Ramadhan. Hope he uses it a lot more before the end of the school year.
