RAMADAN EDUCATES MUSLIM’S HEART AND SOUL

"Ramadan educates Muslims’ hearts as it is made available in the Madrasah of Ramadan. When we talk about human heart, we talk about human soul and consciousness," said Tun Dato' Sri (Dr) Ahmad Fairuz Dato' Sheikh Abdul Halim, the Pro-Chancellor of Universiti Utara Malaysia (UUM) at the UUM Iftar Reception 2016 at the Sultan Badlishah Mosque, yesterday.

According to him, human nafs influences human behaviours in developing soul and consciousness as described by Imam al-Ghazali in his book called Ihya' Ulumuddin.

He further reiterated that the three types of nafs namely Ammarah, Lawwamah and Mutmainnah exist in human beings.

"Self-discipline formed in the month of Ramadan is able to resist the nafs ammarah - the self that tempts to evil. Besides, the nafs lawwamah - the self-reproaching conscience that tempts to make considerations between good and bad, while the nafs mutmainnah - the self at peace that tempts to perform righteousness and attains Allah nearness and applies the sacred Islamic laws," he said.

Yang Amat Berbahagia Tun Pro-Chancellor said, in the month of Ramadan, Muslims in particular, received a lot of benefits, especially in the medical aspect. He gave an example, based on a database of 5000 patients in Singapore; the results found that the patients’ blood glucose levels are more manageable during Ramadan.

Meanwhile, UUM Vice-Chancellor, Prof Dato' Seri Dr Mohamed Mustafa Ishak said, the yearly event is held to celebrate the holy month of Ramadan as well as to enhance relationships among UUM denizens.

Apart from that, on behalf of the UUM campus community, the Vice-Chancellor expressed his gratitude when UUM clinched the 137th position in this year’s ranking in the QS University Rankings: Asia 2016.

"UUM has successfully increased its position by 56 places compared to last year where UUM was placed at the 193 position. In just five years, UUM has demonstrated impressive increase of 162 places since the year 2011.

UUM is placed at the 21 position in Southeast Asia, the 7th in Malaysia and the 6th among public universities in Malaysia," he said.

The event also saw a total of 16 academic members of staff received their letters of promotion as Associate Professor (DS54), followed by a presentation of contributions to a student named Wan Aifaa Syafia Wan Mohd Sopi, 21, who managed to get a full scholarship to the United States to undergo the Intensive Leadership Programme of Global Village for Future Leaders of Business and Industry Workshop for three months starting June 2016.

The event continued with the presentation of contributions to the Madrasah Tahfiz al-Quran Hafsah, in Jitra. The contributions were also presented to the selected UUM students.

Also present at the ceremony were the Pro-Chancellor’s wife, Yang Amat Berbahagia Toh Puan Datin Seri Mazni Mohamed Noor; the Bukit Kayu Hitam assemblyman, Yang Berhormat Dato' Ahmad Zaini Japar; the Vice-Chancellor’s wife, Yang Berbahagia Datin Seri Norhayati Nazri and UUM officials.
