You may recalled that the ISS-Nigeria have been organizing Ramadan Tafsir (in English) for the entire UTM community.
This year, the ISS-Nigeria went to the extent of securing a dedicated bus service to convey students from KDOJ to Masjid Junction and return them after the tafsir.
As usual, Iftar package is always provided by the UTM Islamic Centre, MSI.
But to our greatest dismay, many students chose to remain in their hostels to view the program online, thereby shunning this very rewarding opportunity. Please note that the online live streaming via Facebook is specifically to reachout to those that are far away from UTM and cannot make it to the MSI.
We therefore call on everyone especially those in KDOJ to try grasps this opportunity as listening to the Tafsir online has its reward but making effort to attend the place of the Tafsir physcally has its own additional reward also.
It is not encouraging after getting this opportunity, only but to have a few participants in attendance always. Let’s develop the attitude of attending this type of very rewarding programs please.
Remember, we are in the holy month of Ramadan, the month in which Qur’an was revealed. Let us all try individually or collectively to attend places of Qur’an Recitations and Tafseer, including our sisters that are around. Invite your friends as well.
Bus leaves KDOJ bus stop by 5pm and return the students after Tafseer by 6.30pm.
May Allah reward you as you attend.

(President, ISS-Nigeria UTM)
