Izah Azahari

A press conference for the Islamic motivational talk by international speaker and author Yasmin Mogahed was held yesterday at the Miftah An-Nur Islamic International School in Jalan Manggis. The talk will be held at the Universiti Brunei Darussalam (UBD) Chancellor Hall on October 7.

The talk is presented by Miftah An-Nur Islamic International School and Qalby Sdn Bhd, and based on Yasmin Mogahed’s Islamic bestselling book ‘Reclaim Your Heart: Personal insights on breaking free from life’s shackles.’

According to Miftah An-Nur Islamic International School Principal Wiem Mihoub during the press conference, the motivational book serves as a manual of one’s journey to one’s heart. In it, Yasmin Mogahed discusses many topics including marriage, feelings, bitterness, and also our lives as an Ummah – with the objective of connecting this to life’s true purpose, which tends to be forgotten.

More than 1,000 people are expected to attend the talk. The organising committee informed that the event begins at 7.30pm. Ticket holders can check in as early as 6pm, but the doors will only be open at 7pm. Prayer rooms are located at the basement of the Chancellor Hall.

Meanwhile, the seating arrangement will be according to each category: VIP, public and backseats. However, it is a free seating and those who wish to get close may want to come early.
