KOTA BELUD: Efforts to develop religious schools and enhance fardhu ain and Al-Quran classes will continue in order to produce a society which is well-versed with their faith, especially among the young generation.
Sabah Assistant Minister of Agriculture and Food Industry, Datuk Musbah Jamli, said the move needs to be followed up with events and programmes related to spiritual knowledge such as tilawah programme to mould well-educated generation.
“This can be done by understanding the teachings by Rasulullah SAW and Al-Quran which are the guides and protector for every Muslims,” he said in his speech for officiating Kota Belud District Level Al-Quran Recitation Programme 1436H/2015M at SMK Agama Tun Said, here yesterday.
Musbah said, in the today’s challenging and high-tech era, Muslims must not indulge themselves in hedonism and other societal problems, as it is detrimental to their character and faith as a Muslim, and make them neglect the country’s stability and security.
The Tempasuk State Assemblyman (ADUN) also said that Muslims should not remain silent and let themselves being ridiculed, and they have to stand firm and strive against the negative perceptions on Islam.
He stressed that in order to fight these negative perceptions, they (Muslims) must not take up arms, but instead proving that Islam teaches positive behaviour and mindset, as well as rejecting inhumane acts.
“We need to preserve the unity and harmony which we are enjoying, where unity will garner strength and peace which are vital in maintaining a continuous development for the benefits of all,” he added. – SayangSabah
