SERDANG - The empowerment of the Quran among youths is important and needs to be emphasised to produce human capital that practises and applies the Quran in their daily lives.
Started in July 2021, UPM Huffaz Club in collaboration with the Annur Quranic Centre, MyFundaction, Muslim Youth Development Centre and Lower Hutt Islamic Centre, holds the International Weekly Quran Tahsin Programme entitled 'Tea time Nourishment’.
It is carried out virtually via the Google Meet application, involving participants from Malaysia and New Zealand.
The 45-minute programme starts at 2.30 pm, Malaysia time, equivalent to 7.30 pm, New Zealand time.
The participants who volunteered as the Quranic teachers for this programme comprised of students from several higher learning institutions from all over Malaysia, including Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM), International Islamic University (UIA), Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM), Matriculation College and Sultan Abdul Halim Mu’adzam Shah International Islamic University (UniSHAMS).
The 'Tea Time Nourishment' programme is considered unique as it applied the concept of volunteerism to teach the Quran. These participants or volunteers would become the Quranic teachers to students in different countries, such as New Zealand youths.
The targeted students are youths from Lower Hutt, a city on the North Island, New Zealand.
UPM Huffaz Club took the initiative to cooperatively revive the culture of memorising the Quran in UPM, intending to produce professional huffaz who is recognised internationally.
UPM Huffaz Club was launched on May 30, 2019, and officiated by UPM Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic & International), Prof. Dr. M. Iqbal Saripan.
The programme indirectly promotes knowledge sharing across the continent, regardless of race, using the currently available technology.
Members of UPM Huffaz Club feel that the best way to teach the Quran effectively to students in other countries is by using English as the medium.
The organisation of the 'Tea Time Nourishment’ programme is expected to benefit the participants involved, thus allowing them to be an agent to change themselves and others while continuing to strive and succeed in this world and the afterlife. - UPM
