Embrace the pride and gratitude in your heart. Today, with the grace and blessings of Allah SWT, we are able to come to this Festival despite of rain.
Mahallah as-Siddiq is so unique for this University. This is the land where all of us share the same aspiration, to obtain the knowledge and inculcate the virtue.
This is also the land where we meet and greet our friends from 39 countries around the world, which represent approximately 45 percent of residents of this Mahallah.
We are so proud to welcome this diversity in this land, where we can appreciate it through unity and integration. That is in line with our National Day Theme for this year, “One Heart and One Soul”. We are not only go for unity and integration, but also for love and respect.
That is Malaysian dream, which according to the Rukunegara, “Whereas our country, Malaysia, nurtures the ambition of achieving a more perfect unity amongst the whole of her society.” I sure that other countries dream the same as well.
As our country is currently hosting the 27th ASEAN Summit, I would like to say that: What we are doing now is a part of ASEAN Way, where we celebrate unity in diversity.
