On April 2 and 3, 2018, a program was held at Kampung Orang Asli Ulu Melaka Serendah, Selangor in order to promote and celebrate the Nuzul Quran during Ramadan 1440H with Malaysia’s indigenous community. In order to achieve success, many games were initiated including: Musabaqah Competition, Stories of the Prophet, written Jawi, Azan, and Iqamah. These fun filled educational activities were attended by over 80 Orang Asli children and adults ranging from 5 to 50 years in age and each competition was divided into the school age children, the young adults, and the older members of the community.
There were other activities as well including gotong royong preparation for the breaking of the Ramadan fast, the actual meal after the fast, Solat Berjamaah, Solat Terawikh, Moreh and Sahur. Volunteers to the program brought and contributed rice, oil, flour, milk, fish, biscuits, sugar and more to over 50 families in need of kitchen supplies and food basics. This program owed its success to the cooperation of JKKK Kg. Ulu Melaka Serendah and others such as the Selangor Zakat Center, La Famiglia, Cervello Tres, UKM Johor Student Association and the efforts of the 22 SALAM volunteers who put the program together and made it such a great success.
