Universiti Islam Sultan Sharif Ali (UNISSA) began its Mushaf Al-Quran distribution yesterday to religious institutions and facilities, schools, and Muslim converts (Muallaf).

Following this, a handing over ceremony to distribute the UNISSA’s Mushaf for the waqaf (endowment) project was held at the Auditorium Hall of UNISSA yesterday. Rector of UNISSA Dr Haji Norarfan bin Haji Zainalwas the guest of honour at the ceremony.

As of March 21, 4,253 copies of UNISSA’s Mushaf have been reserved by the public for the waqaf project.

The project is planned as a continuous effort, with endowment and participation opportunities still open to the public with the distribution being carried out in phases. The distribution will include mosques, surau, religious halls, religious and Arabic schools, Institut Tahfiz Al-Quran Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah (ITQSHHB), primary and secondary schools, Al-Falaah School, Nadi Al-Quran as well as Muslim converts.

For the first phase, UNISSA allocated some 20,000 copies for the waqaf project and will distribute them to designated locations and institutions, including foreign institutions.

UNISSA will distribute the Mushaf according to locations selected by the UNISSA Committee for the waqaf project based on public reservations.

The waqaf project aims to provide a platform for the public to make their waqaf at locations that are in need.
