Knowledge Convention from July 24 to August 6

Tuesday, July 22, 2008
KNOWLEDGE Convention 2008 strives to become an academic landmark for His Majesty the Sultan and Yang Di Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam’s 62nd birthday celebrations and as a means to uphold the monarch’s leadership in developing a knowledgeable nation with acceptance and blessings from Allah the Almighty.

The convention is scheduled to be held from July 24 to August 6, 2008, at the International Convention Centre (ICC), Berakas.

This year’s convention, with the theme Menghayati Negara Zikir is expected to be officially opened by His Majesty on July 24, 2008.

This year’s convention will marks its fifth year since its inception in 2004 where a number of events have been arranged which consist of seminars, exhibitions and motivational talks.

The theme revolves around the meaning of a nation whose race and society always remember Allah (SWT) in their actions and thoughts.

The main aim of the theme Menghayati Negara Zikir is to encourage the people to move towards excellence and away from engaging in wrongdoings.

The annually held Knowledge Convention also serves as a platform for discussions and meeting on the concept of Negara Zikir as a response to His Majesty’s titah in conjunction with last year’s Hari Raya Aidiladha, where the monarch aspires that the country will one day become a Negara Zikir.

A number of working papers will be tabled during the convention’s seminar. The speakers include the Deputy Minister of Education, Pg Dato Seri Setia Dr Hj Mohammad Pg Hj Abd Rahman who will present a paper on Realising Negara Zikir Through Education and Becoming Closer to Zikir By Practice by Chief Syar’ie Judge, Pehin Siraja Khatib Dato Paduka Seri Setia Ustaz Hj Yahya Hj Ibrahim.

The seminars are strictly for certain intellectuals and scholars from selected institutions. (AAB1)
