SIDMA College Sabah annually distribute “Bubur Lambuk” during Ramadhan

SIDMA College Sabah, under the dynamic leadership of Prof Dr Morni Hj Kambrie (Chairman and Founder) and Madam Azizah Khalid Merican (CEO) enliven the spirit of 2019 Ramadhan with among other things, the distribution of packed spiced porridge or more popularly known as Ramadhan Porridge or in simple Bubur Lambuk daily.

Bubur Lambuk is a unique delicacy among Malaysians during Ramadhan; it is a very well balanced food. Essentially it is porridge cooked with minced meat, as well as other ingredients all put together and cook in one pot.

According to Dr Morni, the distribution of Bubur Lambuk by the college started with the humble beginning of SIDMA College Sarawak in 1998. When SIDMA College Sabah was established in Kota Kinabalu in 2002, Dr Morni extended the culture of distributing free Bubur Lambuk during Ramadhan Al-Mubarak to SIDMA Sabah, and the tradition continues.

For this 2019 Ramadhan (1440 H) Dr Morni announced that he is very fortunate to have the service of Chef Mustafa (Chef Mus) from MUS Kitchen to head the preparation and cooking of the porridge. Currently Dr Morni and Chef Mus have a team of more than 100 volunteers, comprising of lecturers, staff and students who voluntarily take their turns to assist in the preparing, cooking and packing the porridge, as well as to deliver it to the scheduled destination such as mosques, suraus, fire and rescue stations, police stations, hospitals, schools, and more every afternoon.

For this Ramadan 1440 H, a total of 3 pots (approximately 600 packets) of Bubur Lambuk are prepared daily to be distributed for free to the general public (sedekah infaq) This packed Bubur Lambuk is delivered to its scheduled destination and served after the Asr prayer.

Since the beginning of 1 Ramadhan 1440 H, various individuals have contacted Dr Morni and sponsored the Bubur Lambuk to be prepared and distributed to places of their choice (in and around Kota Kinabalu and Penampang) according their tentative  schedule.

Let us follow the generosity of the Messenger of Allah in the month Ramadan. Our Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) - the best role model for us is the most generous person, and his generosity was incredibly increased during the month Ramadan. This fact was told by Ibn ‘Abbas -may Allah be pleased with them both- as follows:


كان رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم أجود الناس ، وكان أجود ما يكون في رمضان حين يلقاه جبريل ، وكان يلقاه في كل ليلة من رمضان فيُدارسه القرآن ، فالرسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم أجودُ بالخير من الريح المرسَلة


“Allah’s Messenger was the most generous of all the people, and he used to reach the peak in generosity in the month of Ramadan when Jibril (Gabriel) met him. Jibril used to meet him every night of Ramadan to teach him the Qur’an. Allah’s Messenger was the most generous person, even more generous than the strong uncontrollable wind (in readiness and haste to do charitable deeds). Sahih al-Bukhari, Vol. 1, Book 1, Hadith 6

Meanwhile, according to Puan Noradilah Binti Mohamadia and Ustazah Rohaya Binti Ruslan, Secretariat of SIDMA College Ihya Ramadhan Committee, among others activities during Ramadhan are the daily Tadarus Al-Quran at Madrasah Jamiatul Fathi beginning 9.00 am throughout the month of Ramadhan. SIDMA staff, students and the general public are welcome to participate in this dairy event.
