The ceremony commenced with a recitation of Surah Al-Fatihah led by the guest of honour and was followed by a recitation of verses from the Al-Quran by the participants.
The ceremony also saw the involvement of two new converts – Amirul Haffizul bin Amir Umizan and Muhd Safwan bin Muhd Hadrul, who are taking a nine-month course at the PBB.
