SELAMAT DATANG NISFU SYA’BAN

Alhamdulillah. Semoga Allah panjangkan usia kita untuk menikmati bulan Sya'ban dan bulan yang penuh mulia; bulan Ramadhan.


Bulan Sya'ban adalah bulan terakhir sebagai persiapan kita untuk bertemu dengan bulan Ramadhan. Maka pada bulan inilah sepatutnya kita memperbanyakkan lagi amalan-amalan yang sedia ada, contohnya memperbanyakkan puasa sunat.

Dari Aisyah R.HA katanya: "Tidak pernah Nabi SAW itu berpuasa dari sesuatu bulan lebih banyak daripada Sya'ban, kerana Beliau SAW itu berpuasa dalam bulan Sya'ban itu seluruhnya."

Dalam suatu riwayat disebutkan: "Beliau SAW itu berpuasa pada bulan Sya'ban, melainkan sedikit sekali yang tidak - yakni sebagian besar dalam bulan ini dipuasai." (Mutafaqun Alaih)

*Rujuk kitab Riyadhus Shalihin bab 225, hadis ke 1244 )

OPENING CEREMONY OF THE SOUTH EAST ASIA IRON AND STEEL INSTITUTE (SEAISI) CONFERENCE & EXHIBITION 2014, SHANGRI-LA HOTEL

Good Morning. Salam Sejahtera and Salam 1Malaysia,

1.         I would like to thank the organisers for inviting me to the 2014 South East Asia Iron and Steel Institute, SEAISI, Conference & Exhibition. I am happy to note that Malaysia is again hosting this major annual event. We last hosted the SEASI Conference in 2009.  This year, as you may know, is Visit Malaysia Year. So I am happy to join MISIF in welcoming all of you to Malaysia again.  

2.        Ladies and Gentlemen, you meet at a very challenging and exciting time. 2015 is just about some six months or so away. 2015 is a key milestone for ASEAN as the region is expected to see the realization of the first and most important phase of ASEAN Economic Community. With this regional economic integration issues of competition and supply, and freer and fair trade are even more real then in the past.

3.             Ladies and Gentlemen, for me, the iron and steel industry is as dynamic and challenging as it is strategic. You contribute to the development of a host of other sectors, not least, the construction and automotive and aerospace sectors. But, yes, you are also facing a number of challenges. Allow me to focus on just two very pressing concerns that I hope this SEASI conference will deal with. One is the challenge of sustainable development. All countries grapple with issues of climate change. No one country can manage such a concern on its own. Likewise industry, too, cannot ignore its impact on the environment. I hope that Sustainable Development is now high on your agenda and I would like to hear from industry measures being taken to deal with such concerns.

Kenangan Bersama...
