Those who learn and teach al-Qur'an will gain a multitude of blessings. Anyone teaching their children al-Qur'an is akin to one performing the haj 10 thousand times. The State Mufti underscored the matter at the Admission of New Students of the Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah Tahfiz Al-Quran Institute for the 1440 Hijrah/ 2019 Session, yesterday morning. Yang Berhormat Pehin Datu Seri Maharaja Dato Paduka Seri Setia Doctor Ustaz Haji Awang Abdul Aziz bin Juned, also raised the issue of today's situation that many people are less interested in the studies of Al-Quran, compared with other fields. This may be due to them not seeing the economic value of al-Qur'an, resulting in a division of the society's interest towards al-Qur'an.
At the function, 21 male and 39 female students undergoing studies at the secondary level received Mushaf Al-Quran. The function is the highlight of the 6-day Ta'aruf Week programme for the institute's new students. The Ta'aruf week activities include mass prayers, personal motivation of Al-Quran memorisers; Al-Quran Meorisation workshop; Khat or Islamic Calligraphy; Procedures of wearing a turban for male students, dikir syarafil Anam competition; Murattal Al-Quran reading competition as well as Dawn talks delivered by former students of the institute.
