The program started off with the customary Tazkirah session which is a continuity on the series of 'The ISDEV Director Tazkirah' given by ISDEV Director, Professor Muhammad Syukri Salleh. The Tazkirah is the second in series in which Prof. Syukri reminded ISDEV fraternity this time about the tribulations that ISDEV had to overcome for the present Centre for Islamic Development Management Studies (ISDEV) to be established.

The second session then continued with a lecture by Dr. Mohd Shukri Hanapi on "Sumber Penyelidikan Daripada Al-Qur'an dan Hadith: Kaedah Pencarian, Penggunaan dan Rujukan" (Research Sources from The Qur'an and the Hadith: Research, Usage and Reference Methods).

Dr. Shukri 's lecture consisted of three main matters but due to time constraints only two matters were covered that day.The first was a general guide on the authentic books and websites used in searching for verses from the Qur'an and Hadith of the Prophet Muhammad SAW. The second was on the usage of the verse from the Quran and Hadith as a point to support one's statement or discussion in one's research.

The third which was on how to refer to the verses of the Qur'an and Hadith and the style of referencing of the verses of the Qur'an and Hadith used will be covered in the next monthly graduate supervision.

As usual ISDEV members took the opportunity to clarify their doubts on the topic and checked with Dr.Shukri on how to ensure the verses and hadith they had identified could help them in their researches.
