|The strong bond built between a student and ISDEV lecturer - his teacher|
35 MISDEV14 (ISDEV Master Mixed-Mode) students who have successfully completed their Master in Social Science (Islamic Development Management) this February 2016 were honoured in a simple yet meaningful ceremony called “Majlis Restu Ilmu” (Knowledge Blessing Ceremony).

It has become a tradition in ISDEV that newly enrolled MISDEV students organize a simple yet memorable program which is part of ISDEV culture. The significance of such program is to enable ISDEV lecturers to bestow their blessings to all MISDEV14 students the knowledge that has been shared and imparted to the students who have just completed their studies.

The last session then continued just after ISDEV Deputy Director, Dr. Fadzila Azni Ahmad delivered her simple and brief speech to MISDEV14. The culmination session of the day, namely 'Sesi Merestui Ilmu’ (Knowledge Blessing Session) took place followed by a "Symbolic Gesture" time. The students went to each lecturer, shook hands, asked for forgiveness, blessings and permission to practice, utilize and disseminate the knowledge they had received from the lecturers. It was indeed an emotional-filled, but on the face of each student was a glimpse of glowing contentment - a happiness that contains hundreds of fond memories. The ceremony ended with a group photo session and a simple tea time.
