Premised on the theme “Ahlan Ya Ramadhan”, the Masjid Carnival sets out to do just that in an innovative way by providing the communities inside and outside IIUM with an avenue to welcome Ramadhan together.
Enlivening the IIUM atmosphere would be enriching programmes such as Iqra’ programme, i-Masjid launching, fund raising, khat and tilawah competitions, nasyeed performances, and forums, to name a few.
Concurrent with it, well-known establishments such as Students Learning Enhancement Unit (SLEU), Daya Bersih, IIUM Endowment Fund (IEF), i-Masjid Group, Iqra’ Corner, and Research Management Centre (RMC) will be hosting exhibitions laden with activities.
“The event will be officiated by the Rector, Prof. Dato’ Sri Dr. Zaleha Kamaruddin and so is the launching of Masjid Carnival programs, said Nik Hziman.
“The objective of this event is for the mosque to be a centre for Tarbiyyah Ruhiyyah, the epicentre for the promotion of Islamic intellectualism and Ummatic consciousness in International Islamic University Malaysia,” he added.
The event is the first of its kind to be organized by the SHAS Mosque management.
