THE three-day ‘Generating Glorious Individual through Malay Islamic Monarchy (MIB)’ programme continued its activities yesterday with a briefing related to MIB at the Red Jade Hall of the Centrepoint Hotel in Gadong.
Associate Professor Dr Haji Hashim bin Haji Hamid, an invited speaker from Universiti Brunei Darussalam (UBD), gave a brief introduction to MIB.
He said that being a Malay, one must possess the three attributes – courtesy or politeness, good manners and character – the top characteristics in Islam, so that he/she will become an individual with wisdom.
Islam holds on to the pillars namely Tauhid (Faith), Syariat (Law) and Akhlak (Moral) and there are four best names in Islam – Muhammad, Ahmad, Abdullah and Mustapa, he added.
Among the objectives of the programme are to equip the participants with an understanding and appreciation towards the five pillars of Islam as well as to present to newly-converts, the environment and social aspects of Islam.
Furthermore, it is also to encourage them to be knowledgeable and proactive as well as strengthen the ties among the newly-converted.
The programme focusses on activities with the values and elements of Islam such as highlighting the duties of Muslim in fulfilling Fardhu prayers.
The programme is organised by the Malay Islamic Monarchy Supreme Council (MTMIB) in collaboration with the committees from Kg Bukit Mosque, Tutong through their Volunteering Unit, Al Hijrah.
Also present during the second day of the programme was Dr Haji Muhammad Hadi bin Muhammad Melayong, Head of Secretariat of MTMIB.
