In September, the frenzied atmosphere that surrounded the first batch of Masters Students in Islamic Development Management (MISDEV ’08) were felt as the due date for the submission of their written dissertation edged closer and closer. Although not a mandatory requirement, four students from MISDEV ’08 volunteered to present and shared their findings which were slotted for in three consecutive Fridays of September – all during the month of Ramadhan. The intellectual discourse for these students proved to be beneficial as the feedback received from the reviewers appointed allowed the students to improve on their dissertation before the final submission.

In the midst of the dissertation fever felt by MISDEV ’08, the blessed fasting month did not pass by ISDEV idly. To celebrate in the barakah found in the month of Ramadhan, ISDEV feasted its members on 11 September, 2009 at the Dewan Bankuet, USM to iftar (the breaking of fast) which was followed by tazkirah and the congregational prayers of maghrib, then isya and the nawafil tarawikh prayers.
