Rahman, or better known as Ustaz Syaari after an 8 hour leadership seminar held in Hall 3, Pocket D. Ustaz Syaari is the Managing Director of Ibrah Paradigm Training and Consultancy and also the author of the bestselling book titled “Kuasa Kepimpinan Al-Fateh” (The Power of Al-Fateh Leadership). He was invited by the organizing committees, University Teknologi PETRONAS An-Nur Islamic Centre, Global Ukhuwwah and Rakan Masjid, to speak for the Seminar Kecemerlangan Islamika (SKI). The main purpose of the seminar is to promote An-Nur Islamic Centre Gabung Ukhuwwah 2.0. The seminar mainly focuses on boosting one’s leadership, with the Islamic icon, Muhammad Al-Fateh (Muhammad the Conqueror) as role model. The seven virtues emphasized in a leader are Being Positive, Proactive, have a Clear Vision, Teamwork (Synergy), Think Out of The Box, have Integrity, and Tawakkal (to wholeheartedly have faith in God’s fate after hard work). Project Manager, Safaraz Ahmad bin Khaliq Maqsood (ICT, Final year, 2nd semester) said, “There has not been a seminar like this one,” he added, “that gives understanding on the qualities of Al-Fateh in UTP”. Ustaz Dawi Cahyano bin Nurdin, head of An-Nur Islamic Centre described Ustaz Syaari’s seminar as “bedah buku”, which literally means dissecting a book. Ustaz Syaari’s talk will deepen understanding the participants by explaining the contents of his studies on Al-Fateh.
