THE Belait Dakwah Unit Office has recorded a total of eight new converts so far in 2015, including two women who converted yesterday.
The two women, Filipino and Iban respectively, stated they chose Islam as their new faith because of their own interest to explore the religion much deeper.
The newly-converted Filipino previously known as Milagros Tallad Quiambao, 34, chose Siti Khadijah binti Abdullah Rodolfo as her new Muslim name. Siti Khadijah is currently working with Serikandi Sendirian Berhad.
Meanwhile, the Iban who was previously known as Gumbang @ Rosita Anak Gumbang, 34, chose Nur Khairi Natasha binti Abdullah Gumbang as her new Muslim identification.
These two new sisters in Islam declared the Syahadah in front of an Islamic conversion officer,
Siti Nur Zalikha binti Abd Karim, at the Dakwah Unit Office in Kuala Belait.
