AN EXHIBITION showcasing student projects on the connection between Al-Quran and science is currently being held at the Sekolah Ugama Arab Menengah Perempuan Raja Isteri Pengiran Anak Damit (SUAMRIPAD).

The exhibition, showcasing students’ projects at the school’s main hall, consists of 31 projects undertaken by 143 students who participated in a competition that was organised by the SUAMRIPAD Science Department over the course of two days.

The exhibition, “The Miracles of Al-Quran & Science Project Competition” was officially launched by the Acting Director of the Department of Islamic Studies, Ustazah Hjh Rusita Hj Yahya, yesterday.

The exhibition is the result of a two-day competition that was held at the school earlier in the week. Students were judged by Dr Abdul Muthalif Afuwardeen of Universiti Islam Sultan Sharif Ali and Dr Sayyed Abdul Hamid Almahdaly; and Mohd Hilmy Baihaqy Hj Yusof from Universiti Brunei Darussalam.

Winning projects from the competition were also put on display with the winners, “Medicine Physicists” with their project on “Medicine & Ad-Du’a”. The first runners-up was “Rifshanna B” who did a project on “Embryologies” followed by group “Iman” with their project on “Solat”.

According to a statement issued by the school, the projects executed by the students were done to highlight the connection between Al-Quran and science to highlight that Al-Quran is a source of knowledge that inspired the birth of science.

Additionally, it is also emphasised that religion and science are in unity, and are not two separate entities.

Besides enlightening the students and visitors of the exhibition, the competition serves to encourage students to excel in teamwork accompanied by independent research and learning while strengthening their faith in Allah SWT.

The exhibition is expected to continue today for public viewing from 8.30am to 3.30pm at the school’s main hall.
