    Azlan Othman

    A Khatam Al-Quran and Doa Kesyukuran ceremony in conjunction with the 34th Universiti Brunei Darussalam (UBD) convocation was held at the UBD Mosque yesterday.

    A total of 344 Muslim students (72 male and 272 female) participated in the Khatam Al-Quran.

    Minister of Education cum guest of honour Datin Seri Setia Dr Hajah Romaizah binti Haji Mohd Salleh attended the event alongside UBD Vice-Chancellor Dr Hazri bin Haji Kifle.

    The event is held annually as a show of gratitude for prospective UBD graduates. It is organised by the Student Affairs Division through the Spirituality and Community Service Unit in collaboration with the UBD Student Association.

    The ceremony is the pinnacle of success for those who have, since December 2021, followed the Al-Quran programme organised by the Spirituality and Community Service Unit. The programme serves as a platform to produce students who are Al-Quran literate, and at the same time, realise the vision of becoming a Zikir Nation.
