Haji Marzuki Hami Umi distributed Dates (Kurma)

In conjunction with the upcoming Holy month of Ramadan which begins on 18 June 2015; Haji Marzuki Haji Umi, Chief Executive Officer SIDMA College Sarawak distributed dates (kurma) to SIDMA staff during a simple but meaningful ceremony at SIDMA College.

According to Haji Marrzuki Haji Umi, breaking the fast with dates is one of the sunnah that must be followed by all Muslim. According to him, the distribution of dates has become a tradition at SIDMA College where they distribute the dates to all staff including the non-Muslim staffs.

Breaking the fast with dates, as well as praying before Iftar are both mentioned in the Hadith literature: The Messenger of Allah would break his fast with ripe dates before offering prayer. If those were less fortunate, he would eat dried dates. If those are less fortunate, he would drink some water.”
