吉祥宝聚寺非常荣幸被邀请参加芽笼士乃六月十七日的斋戒开斋仪式,当天龙区区长刘文英和护法会副会长吴奕葿 (政府机构) 代表出席, 并且受到了该区 IRCC主席黃秀南女士与顾问 Professor Fatimah热烈的招待。 

透由这次的参与,让我们更了解开斋戒的意义,它不僅僅清淨身语意的表徵,并让受戒者藉此体会人饥已饥的胸怀,进而对他人生起慈悲心。这与佛教提倡的慈悲心不谋而合。 

同时认识到回教在斋戒的最后十天内以奇数天为主;如最后第21天,第23天,第25天,第27天与第29天;在这些天所念诵可兰经的功德,相当于念诵83天的功德,尤为殊胜,所以稱之為"殊胜日"。

透过这则报导,有助于扭转你对回教既定的印象,他们也是慈悲心为出发点,希望众生远离痛苦得到快乐。

On 17 June 2017, BW Monastery was invited for Iftar by Associate Professor Fatimah Lateef, Adviser of Geylang Serai. Other guests that attended were Geylang Serai residents, representatives from clans, associations, religious groups and youth groups of various organisations. In her opening speech, AP Fatimah Lateef mentioned that it was a time for sharing more than food and breaking of fast; it was about sharing our common space, promotion of multiculturalism and multiracialism. The event was held right smack in the midst of the Geylang Serai Bazaar.

It was another insightful evening with the community as we learned that, on the last ten days of the Ramadan and in which, the odd number days - 21, 23, 25, 27 and 29, have been considered as special days where all holy prayers would multiply. This event was represented by Mr Archer Low, Care Dept Head for Central Zone, and Ms Jennifer Goh, Vice President of Public Relations and Communications.
