Helping the public to understand Ahli Sunnah Wal Jama’aah
THE Ministry of Defence yesterday commemorated the new Islamic year by organising a religious forum at the Bridex Conference Hall in Jerudong that was aimed to help members of the public better understand their faith under the constitution of the Ahli Sunnah Wal Jama'ah.
The forum entitled “Aqidah Ahli Sunnah Wal Jama’ah”, featured three panelists comprising members from the Seri Begawan Religious Teachers University College (KUPU SB) including the Director of the Fundamental Knowledge Centre, Dr Hj Noralizam Hj Ali Akbar.
During the forum, Dr Hj Noralizam spoke of the importance of maintaining and strengthening one’s aqidah due to the numerous threats that have come about in the now globalised world.
“What is most concerning nowadays are the threats that affect one’s spirituality, these are the ones we need to protect ourselves from, despite the fact that we live in a world with no borders, our religion, our spirituality still has borders that need fortifying,” he said.
Present as the guest of honour at the event, was the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Defence Datin Paduka Hjh Suriyah Hj Umar. Also in attendance were service commanders, deputy permanent secretaries, directors, commandants, senior officers and personnel from MinDef and the Royal Brunei Armed Forces.
