“We need to play an active role as members of the good world society and respond to the needs and demands of the surrounding community and world at large,” he added. 

He explained that the graduates should be ready to serve the world after years of education in the university and have officially become part of the greater commitment.

“Let us answer the call of Rasulullah S.A.W. who said that the best amongst you are the ones that bring the greatest benefits to others,” he emphasised.

The President thanked all the parents and family members for attending today’s convocation ceremony to celebrate the success of the graduates because without their support, none of it would have been accomplished.
