According to Wan Norhaniza, this award was totally unexpected to her. Nonetheless she is grateful to Allah SWT and described the acknowledgement as a sign of recognition of her research area. She also added that the award given to her is extremely meaningful and she valued the trust that has been placed on her by the university. She is currently conducting a research on ‘Indeks Pembangunan Berteraskan Islam’ (Islamic-based Development Index). This research is expected to ensure that the development that is said to be Islamic-based does not exhibit the characteristics of a conventional development.
