In his thought-provoking lecture, the lecturer of the day, Sheik Solati, reiterated the importance of serving God wholeheartedly, saying â€œwhoever commits him or herself wholly to the service of Allah (SWT) by shunning all acts of sin and engaging purely in good deeds to fellow human beings, could use that to challenge Allah in periods of difficulty,â€ while one of the award recipients, Alhaji Surajudeen Abdul-Wahab, enjoined all Muslims to be committed to glorious propagation of Islam.
According to him, the award would spur the awardees and others to do more for Allahâ€™s cause and humanity.
