GOMBAK, 4 November 2017 – After rounds of fierce competition, Nurul Syazana Khairul Anuar was finally announced the winner of Pentas Dakwah on Thursday (2 November) at Moot Court, Ahmad Ibrahim Kulliyyah of Law (AIKOL).
Syazana, who is from Kulliyyah of Islamic Revealed Knowledge and Human Sciences (KIRKHS), said that the competition has definitely provided a training ground for participants who aspire to become preachers later on.
“Pentas Dakwah is a stepping stone for us or anyone who want to continue preaching in the future,” she said.
The final stage of Pentas Dakwah kicked off with the theme “Islam is the Way of Life”, witnessing six participants proving their own points in their presentations. The second round got trickier as the finalists were required to pick a random envelope containing a question that they would have to answer spontaneously.
First runner-up of the competition, Wan Muhammad Hafiz Wan Zin admitted that the final stage was “tougher” than the semi-final round.
“I am really grateful for the winning and the competition has really encouraged students to be involved in spreading the teachings of the Prophet. New talents can be discovered too,” he said.
Meanwhile, the Programme Manager of Pentas Dakwah, Muhammad Saufi Mazlan stated that they have achieved their aim in helping students to showcase their skills through various styles like pantun, sajak and singing.
“We want students to be attracted to religious events so it would not look boring,” he commented adding, “I am glad that Pentas Dakwah received huge support from the audiences as it means that our mission is a big success.”
The competition is judged by three experts in the field of dakwah, like Da’i Luqman, Ustaz Safwan Syafiq and Ustazah Dr. Ramizah.***
