GRADUATE DISCOURSE: FADZILA AZNI AHMAD

Fadzila Azni Ahmad has completed her PhD thesis. But, as normal practice of ISDEV, before she is allowed to submit the thesis for examiners' evaluation, ISDEV requires her to present it first at ISDEV Graduate Discourse.

The main aim of the Discourse is to help her rescrutinizing and doing the final polishing so that the thesis could be submitted in the best quality possible, hence entailed with an excellent result. For this, the Graduate Discourse is scheduled to be held tomorrow, Friday 23 May 2008, at 10.00 am at ISDEV. The thesis, entitled Management Methods of Islamic-Based Development Institution in Malaysia will be reviewed by Dr Mohamad Zaini Abu Bakar and Dr Zahri Hamat.

A NAS A WEEK - 28 RABIULAKHIR 1429H

Yahya related to me from Malik from Nafi from Abdullah ibn Umar that the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said from the mimbar when mentioning sadaqa and refraining from asking, "The upper hand is better than the lower hand. The upper hand is the one which expends, and the lower one is the one which asks."


[Hadith form Muwatta' Malik, Book No. 58: Sadaqah, Hadith No. 58.2.8]
