The forum discussed progressive values as outlined in Al-Quran and Hadith, and the importance of forming a strong connection with Allah the Almighty.

The panellists also highlighted the social and economic progress of Muslims during the lifetime of the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), in keeping with the theme of this year’s 7th Mahrajan Hafl Al-Takharruj – ‘Syariah memperkasa Generasi Progresif dan Dinamik’ (Syariah Empowers a Progressive and Dynamic Generation).
