Alhamdulillah, I send my highest gratitude to Allah, God of the universe. Pray and remembrance of our beloved prophet, Muhammad SAW, his family, companions, and those who follow him until the date of Judgement.

Once again I put my highest gratitude because for the first time of all, MAIWP manages to establish a modern Islamic institution called Al-‘Abaqirah. This name was derived from those who are knowledgeable, wise, and possess wisdom.  This is the main purpose of the establishment of this institution; a new hope in Islamic institution while realizing the government’s aspiration to generate holistic leaders who understands the knowledge of Fiqh, thus able to resolve any matters or issues of the community.

Our biggest hope is that this institution is able to revitalize traditional Turath system so that it could generate specialists in various fields who could unravel and resolve current issues. I am sure with the cooperation given between the Federal Territory Mufti Office and MAIWP, the institution will result in students with knowledge, character and ultimate human capital.

I want to take the opportunity to wish my appreciation and congratulations for those who are involved in the establishment of this modern Islamic institution, Al-‘Abaqirah.

Lastly, I pray to God, so that this institution will be the landmark of the greatness of traditional learning methodology and it will continue with great success to reach peaks of knowledge. Amin.

That’s all from me, thank you very much.

YB Major General Dato’ Seri Jamil Khir Bin Haji Baharom (B)
