A NAS A WEEK - 20 RAMADHAN 1431H

Narrated 'Ubada bin As-Samit: The Prophet came out to inform us about the Night of Qadr but two Muslims were quarreling with each other. So, the Prophet said, "I came out to inform you about the Night of Qadr but such-and-such persons were quarreling, so the news about it had been taken away; yet that might be for your own good, so search for it on the 29th, 27th and 25th (of Ramadan) [Hadith from Sahih Bukhari Volume 3, Book 32: Praying at Night in Ramadaan, Number 240].

FULL HOUSE FOR THE ISDEV IN-HOUSE SEMINAR SERIES IN JULY

On 30 July, 2010 ISDEV yet again organized the ISDEV In-House Seminar Series. However this time the seminar was so well attended that the Meeting Room of C05 was too small a place to accommodate all those who were present. Everyone was eager to hear from ISDEV Post Doctoral Fellow, Dr Miftahur Rohim as he delivered his lecture on “Analisis Pemikiran Imam Abu Hanifah dan Imam Syafi’i Terhadap Al-Quran” (An Analysis on the Thoughts of Imam Abu Hanifah and Imam Syafi’I on Al-Quran).
An interesting discussion ensued thereafter where the experts of Quranic studies and Arabic Language proponents shared the linguistic and technical syntax implications of terms used in the Quran as interpreted by these great imams.

The seminar which started at 9:30am was chaired by Ustaz Shukri Hanapi, ISDEV PhD Candidate.
