The JBS’s officer added that among others, religious activities such as _tahlil _as well as qiyammulail (prayers and religious activities conducted at night) will also take place during the fasting month.

“For qiyammulail, it will be conducted at night while waiting for sahur, so we focus on reading and reciting Al-Quran and solat Tahajjud.” He also said that for Ramadhan, they will carry out another series of “Infiru Belia” programme, which was introduced only last year.
