Introduction

Assalamu’alaikum wbt…

They say every journey starts with a single step…

It’s been quite a while now since we first took that step; since then we have grown beyond measure. From various backgrounds, fields, ages, experiences and exposures…we suddenly gathered at Perth. For months and years, Australia or more precisely Perth has been our playground. From academics to sports, to music and the arts, from laugh to tears; we have seen it all, so to speak.

However, most of us have seen only part of the picture, forgetting its spiritual complementary. Yet a human’s true calling in life is to achieve balance. Thus we must see the other half of that picture; of a higher revelation of life, namely that of Islam.

This sometimes forgotten picture is a beautiful one indeed. The Almighty has sent down Islam as many things; peace in times of turmoil, salvation in times of sin. Islam provides comfort for our tears, light for your darkness, and the strength to bear the cruellest of challenges. Most importantly, its ultimate calling is for a man to succeed in life, yet also attain success hereafter.

So, before we soar the skies to our next chapter of our life, we grant you this opportunity to complete this wonderful picture, to make us a better person, to ensure that we will not regret our life when the time has comes for us to see our Creator. May Allah The Almighty bless us all, InsyaAllah..

They say that every journey starts with a single step. May this programme becomes a stepping-stone for us to be a better individual; A Highly Effective Mukmin!

Yours sincerely,

Hazman Hadi Sakim
