A MALE Iban teenager embraced the Islamic faith last night at the residence of Hjh Kasumawati binti Haji Buntar in Kampong Sungai Besar, Jalan Kota Batu.
The conversion was conducted by an officer from the Islamic and Muallaf Conversion Guidance Unit of the Islamic Dakwah Centre.
Previously known as Daniel Anak Duat, he now goes by his new Muslim name, Muhammad Daniel bin Abdullah Duat.
Muhammad Daniel told the Bulletin that he has been interested in the religion of Islam since he was in school. With support from his family and close friends, he decided to convert to Islam and learn more about the religion.
The ceremony was not only to celebrate the conversion of Muhammad Daniel but also his brother and sister, Mohammad Irham bin Abdullah Duat and Nur Atiqah binti Abdullah Duat, who both converted to Islam just a week before.
