A total of 37 students of Universiti Brunei Darussalam (UBD) completed the ‘Quranic Journey: Quranic Mates’ programme for the first intake held for three months from September 19.
The ‘Quranic Journey: Quranic Mates’ programme is jointly organised by the Spirituality and Community Service Unit (UKKM), Student Affairs Division (HEP) and the Religious and Spiritual Executive Alumni (EKK Alumni), UBD.
It is an initiative to train prospective Al-Quran mentors comprising UBD students to cover the shortage of mentors faced every year, and indirectly help students instill a habit of reading Al-Quran.
Two workshops were also organised by EKK Alumni during the three-month period to further strengthen participants’ knowledge. The first workshop, a Tajwid workshop titled Al-Fatihah Basic Clinic was presented by Najib Latif from Al-Muyassar Group on October 13.
The second workshop, a communication workshop titled VaQcine, was presented by a certified speaker from the Brunei Islamic Religious Council (MUIB) Muhammad Yadiy bin Haji Mat Yassin on November 21.
The workshops aimed to make full use of time during the pandemic by reciting Al-Quran, and bridging ukhuwah among participants and the facilitator.
An appreciation ceremony was held on December 19, attended by Religious and Spiritual Officer at UKKM HEP UBD Dayangku Siti Norainul Fathni binti Pengiran Haji Tajuddin.
EKK Alumni chairman Muhammad Azib bin Alias expressed hopes that the programme has showed participants how to appreciate and love Al-Quran.
