TADARUS is more than just reciting the verses from Al-Quran, but to understand what has been read and to take lessons from it.

Yang Berhormat Pehin Udana Khatib Dato Paduka Seri Setia Ustaz Hj Badaruddin Pengarah Dato Paduka Hj Othman said this in a special talk on the interpretation of the Quranic verses recited during the tadarus held at the Ash-Shaliheen Mosque of the Prime Minister's Office (PMO) building complex in Kampung Melabau, Mukim Kianggeh last night.
