A 24-YEAR-OLD Dusun man from Tutong officially recited the Dua Kalimah Syahadah at a conversion ceremony that took place at a relative’s house in Kg Mulaut.
Addyzul Lasut, who has been exposed to Islam since he was a young boy, was closely asscociated with the religion for the past eight years.
According to Addyzul, his intention to convert was well received by his family since he has been staying with and looked after by his adoptive father, former national football player Hj Mohd Rosanan Abdullah Samak, who converted to Islam more than 10 years ago.
He further added that he intends to participate in as many programmes that are available for new Muslim converts and to get more in depth knowledge on Islam.
The conversion of Addyzul was carried out by a religious officer from Islamic Dakwah Centre, Awg Hj Ali Sabtu, and was witnessed by the guest of honour of the ceremony, Acting Survey General Hj Ali Bakar bin Hj Kassim, as well as his family members.
Addyzul, who works at the Information Technology and Geospatial Section Survey Department, Ministry of Development, has chosen Mohd Addyzul Muta’ ‘Affif bin Abd Warith @ Hj Mohd Rosanan as his new name.
