Muslims believe that Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is the epitome and model of love, mercy, compassion, benevolence, generosity and all virtues, hence the love for Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is not undue and his birth anniversary is annually marked with Maulidur Rasul ceremonies.

The Student Council of Kolej International Graduate Studies (KIGS) organised its first Maulidur Rasul ceremony at the college’s Business, Marketing and Communication Centre (BMCC).

The ceremony aimed to instil the love for the religion and the Prophet (pbuh) while at the same time inculcating the practice of active participation in religious activities at the college.

College CEO Dr Haji Azaharaini bin Haji Mohd Jamil, senior management and administrative personnel, lecturers and students were present.

The ceremony began with the mass recitation of Surah Al-Fatihah followed by KIGS Student Council President Nurmajeedah Husna binti Haji Mahali’s remarks. She said the event served to nurture a sense of love for the Prophet (pbuh) and Islamic teachings, while strengthening the spirit of unity and friendship among Muslims.

Aside from a special religious talk on Prophet Muhammad’s (pbuh) journey by invited speaker Pengiran Haji Abdul Basit bin Pengiran Haji Zaini, the programme also included a Qasidah performance by the Anwar Al-Huda group and a presentation of a token of appreciation from KIGS CEO to the college’s former lecturer Haji Nasrul Fakhri bin Haji Yahya.
