His Royal Highness Prince Haji Al-Muhtadee Billah ibni His Majesty Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah Mu’izzaddin Waddaulah, the Crown Prince and Senior Minister at the Prime Minister’s Office yesterday called on the Ministry of Religious Affairs (MoRA), especially Institut Tahfiz Al-Quran Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah (ITQSHHB) and other Islamic studies and private institutions, to continue incentive programmes (halaqah) to heighten Al-Quran recitation, memorisation and tadabbur skills.
“Apart from that, the approach utilised for existing plans and programmes needs to be diversified in a more creative manner to get the community involved.
“This will draw interest and attract the Ummah, subsequently ensuring a fruitful outcome,” His Royal Highness Prince (Dr) Haji Al-Muhtadee Billah said in his sabda during the 9th ITQSHHB Haflut Takharruj (Convocation Ceremony) for ‘Aaliyah Qira’at Diploma Programme yesterday.
“In this regard, opportunities are available for graduates to acquire knowledge at a higher level, bringing an added value to enhance their potential in becoming community mentors.
“This is where the institute can play its role by placing greater focus on adapting to the changes with time, after evaluating the effectiveness of programmes. This will act as a catalyst in producing a highly capable human capital, aimed towards assisting national development,” His Royal Highness said.
His Royal Highness congratulated the ITQSHHB graduates on their success and for supporting the national vision of producing a generation of huffaz (one who has memorised Al-Quran), which will directly contribute towards the institute’s excellence, while at the same time, preserve the continuity of the succession of Kalamullah guardians.
“In fact, the success leads towards the strengthening of the emotional, spiritual, physical and intellectual aspects of the community’s life, in line with Brunei Vision 2035 aspiration,” said His Royal Highness.
His Royal Highness said the community’s tendency to continue the practise of Al-Quran reading and tadabbur, while at the same time reciting particular Zikir and Doa, can now be practised through various forms of media platforms with the sole intention of seeking Allah the Almighty’s blessing in the world and the hereafter.
“Therefore, it also serves as a medium to prevent from all forms of disasters sourced from hubbud dunia (love for the world),” His Royal Highness said.
