GOMBAK, 13 December 2021: Winning the seat uncontested has brought contradictory feelings to Ammar Adlan on being the only candidate running for his department, nevertheless he was determined to give his best in attending to the welfare and well-being of the students he represents.
Ammar from the Department of Quran and Sunnah was among the eight candidates who managed to secure the seat for Chairperson uncontested in the recent AbdulHamid AbuSulayman Kulliyyah of Islamic Revealed Knowledge and Human Sciences (AHAS KIRKHS) election.
Sharing his thoughts with IIUMToday in an exclusive interview, Ammar said: “To be honest, I don’t feel any pride in winning this seat, especially when it was uncontested.
Actually, I am worried about the responsibility given to me as it is my first time holding such a high position.”
Ammar shares his vision below in his manifesto:
- To facilitate the communication between students and the department.
- To help develop the QS students’ ability and skills in various tools required in pursuing Islamic studies.
- To help ensure the welfare of QS students.
Collaborate with SOFI and UDCY in maintaining the ukhuwwah of IRK students as a whole.
In relation to his first manifesto, Ammar plans to bridge the gap in communication by facilitating the dissemination of important information from the Department to the Quran Sunnah (QS) students, especially regarding academic matters.
“I will help convey suggestions or complaints from QS students to the department in order to improve the well-being of students throughout their studies,” he said.
In running for the election, there are triumphs and challenges but to Ammar, there were none because he is the only candidate contesting.
Asked of his leadership experience, he had this to share, “During CFS, I was one of the lineups for ISRAK CFS 19/20, holding the bureau of Education and Welfare (EduWel) as the head of the bureau.”
“In some ways, I experienced a leadership role.”
Ammar believes that the students of Quran Sunnah (QS) have the ability to be on par with other leading universities.
“My hope is to help QS department produce graduates who master the sciences of Quran and Sunnah specifically (as well as other sciences in Islamic knowledge) to be on par with graduates from other leading universities in the world in the same field to benefit the ummah,” he shared.
“I will strive my best to bring this vision forward and establish an honest role.” ***
