Salam Eid Adha to all ICIFE Members and families in Malaysia and Abroad!
I believed from the list of 150 members and 09 Institutional Members of ICIFE, there should be some who are fortunate to be the guests of Allah SWT to perform Haj pilgrimage this year. Those not in the holy land are also busy preparing for Qurban. May you & families be blessed.
I know our Secretariat has been providing you with ICIFE progress report from time to time. The last e-blast was re ICIFE Booth No. 28 at WIEF Exhibition scheduled on 03-05 November 2015 @ Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre (KLCC). There is another good news re Exhibition.
Prior to WIEF Exhibition, ICIFE has been invited to set-up one more booth right inside the conference hall @ Putrajaya Marriott Hotel where the World Islamic Countries University Leaders Summit (WICULS) 2015 will be held on 29th-30th September 2015. As such, you can sent your books and journals to the Secretariat by Monday 28th September if you wish your authored materials to be displayed at ICIFE Booth in conjunction wt WICULS 2015 Exhibition. The theme is ‘Re-writing the Narrative: Higher Education for the 21st Century’ and HRH Sultan Nazrin Shah will grace the official ceremony and deliver a special address and visit Exhibition.
I trust you’re also visiting ICIFE Website. Please do not miss to read the Inaugural Issue of ICIFE Islamic Finance Bulletin. I wish to congratulate the Editorial Committee comprising of Br Sulaiman Liu JiuJiang, Br Mohamed Cherif elAmri, Sr Horiya Hussain, Sr Nur Harena Redzuan, and Br M Afzal Osman under the guidance of Editor-in-Chief, AProf Dr. Syed Musa alHabshi. I look forward to read the next issue of Bulletin with more contributors from other universities.
Let the blessings of Eid Adha be the way forward for ICIFE to position ICIFE in the world map!
