SIBU, Feb 23: Sibu Jaya finally has a new landmark in the Darul Husna Mosque, which has started operating for Friday prayers today.

Also present to perform Friday prayers at the new mosque was Deputy Minister of Utilities and Telecommunications Sarawak Datuk Dr Abdul Rahman Junaidi, who made a working visit to the mosque.


Earlier, he witnessed the developer handing over the keys of the mosque to the mosque’s management committee.

He added that Sarawak Premier Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Abang Johari Tun Openg is expected to officiate the new mosque on March 1.

The ceremony is an important event that marks the completion of the mosque that the residents of Sibu Jaya have been waiting for.

This mosque is not just a place of worship but also a symbol of the unity, progress, and beauty in the diversity of Sibu Jaya.

The mosque, worth RM25.8 million, was built on five acres of land.

This project took about four years to complete due to Covid-19 and the implementation of the movement control order (MCO), which caused it to be delayed from the original schedule.

It also has a hall that can accommodate 600 people. — DayakDaily
