(3) Background KYUEM ISLAMIC WEEK seems to be the fitting setting for the organizing of this story-telling competition which requires each participant to relate a true past event of each respective Islamic Figure. As an event annually held in KYUEM and nicknamed KIWEE, it serves as a platform to convey the true meaning of Islam to the college community as a whole, and bring greater understanding of Islamic teachings which in one way of another complement our needs and wants as a human being, And hence, the theme “ESSENCE OF HUMANITY” is used as this year’s KIWEE’s theme. Indeed as Allah said in the qoran, chapter verse

In this particular event, we are inspired to shed some light into the life styles and characters of prominent Islamic figures who themselves are the companions and are closely-related to Prophet Muhammad S.A.W. They were there during the early days of Islam, when Islam was not as widely spread as it is today and have been put through many trials and hurdles along the way. And being a human, they portrayed admirable characters as a lesson for all. In practicing the teachings of Islam they proved the essence and beauty of Islam itself. Let us take this opportunity to learn as much as we can from these great prophet companions, salient Islamic contributors and epitomes, prominent leaders, men and women exemplars, and notable role-models in all aspects of life. 4) COMPETITION
