The surau is a temporary one. The surau committee rents a double-storey link house for this porpose before a permanent one is built. Nevertheless except during Isya' prayers in the fasting month the attendance is always not full. I know of people who stay just a few metres away from the surau but I had never seen their faces in it. It reminded me of my bachelor days in Kelantan.
For these people I wonder why is it so hard for them to go to the surau?
I don't know.
