“There is no doubt that the importance of the Quran in daily life has not changed despite the rapid changes. The modern world should be in line with the notion of the Quran, and even Science and Technology cannot be separated from the stated knowledge. When one reads the Quran, Allah invites His servants to reflect on His creation, the environment, ecology and architecture of the universe to unravel the meaning of life in the midst of all these manifestations, ”says Prof. Dr. Mohamed Ridza Wahiddin USIM Vice Chancellor in the opening ceremony of the conference.
This conference is held annually with the theme of the Sunnah and the Heritage of the Prophet.
