Prayers, words of comfort on glass doors

KUCHING: Staff and students of Universiti Malaysia Sarawak (Unimas) have come up with a creative and heart warming dedication to the passengers and crew of MH370 that vanished last Saturday while en route to Beijing from Kuala Lumpur.

After conducting the solat hajat ceremony at Unimas’ Tun Abang Salahuddin Islamic Centre on Tuesday, the Centre for Language Studies (CLS) decided on the prayers by holding the “CLS Pray for MH370”.

The activity gave the staff and students the chance to draw and leave messages and signatures on the glass doors of the centre’s foyer as a gesture of concern and support for all those on board MH370.

According to the event coordinator Ernisa Marzuki, over 200 students have left their signatures, photos, words of encouragement, messages, hopes and prayers since Wednesday.

“We used a special ink pen for the glass so it is durable but easy to erase. We want to show the support and concerns of campus members for the passengers and crew members of MH370,” said Marzuki.

She said the programme would continue for three weeks or until the plane was found.

“We can only pray for their safety, maybe this can serve as an encouragement,” said Siti Zulaikha Md Azmi from the Faculty of Applied and Creative Arts.

“At least this activity can encourage and comfort the family members of the passengers and crew members to be patient and for them to continue praying for their family members on board,” added Liang Ka Cheong, a student from the Faculty of Economics and Business.

Fellow course mates G. Kanagawathy and Ng Fei Ken, said: “We should trust God and miracles can happen. I hope our prayers are heard and the passengers and crew protected.”
