ITC JOINS HANDS WITH INTERNATIONAL ISLAMIC EVENT ORGANISERS FOR SPIRITUAL ENLIGHTENMENT FEATURING RENOWNED ISLAMIC SCHOLARS


Fallen by Nouman Ali Khan, a Faith Event programme

 


The Faith Conference by Faith Events

 

PUTRAJAYA, 30 NOVEMBER 2023: In a strategic move to attract and engage a diverse range of international tourists to visit Malaysia, Islamic Tourism Centre (ITC) is pleased to announce its support for prominent international event organisers in Warisan Ummah Ikhlas Foundation (WUIF) and Faith Events.

These strategic partnerships are poised to orchestrate a number of upcoming Islamic academic events namely; World #QuranConvention, Fallen by Nouman Ali Khan, and The Faith Conference Event, scheduled to unfold this December at various locations around Kuala Lumpur and Selangor. 

Nizran Noordin, Director-General of ITC, expressed enthusiasm, stating, “ITC is delighted to partake in events of this nature. This provides us with the opportunity not only to extend a warm welcome and showcase Malaysia as a top Muslim-friendly destination for international tourists but also to strengthen Malaysia’s position as an Islamic education hub.”

Nizran then commended local event organisers for consistently producing thought-provoking, and soul-feeding Islamic events around the country, encouraging local and international tourists to travel for personal growth. These efforts align with the Prime Minister, YAB Dato’ Seri Anwar Ibrahim and the Government’s plan to further develop Malaysia’s Islamic Tourism sector, as announced in the 2024 Budget tabling last October. 

The three intellectual events supported by ITC all bear varying themes to capture the diverse interests of the Muslim audience and will be held on different dates and times. 

 

World #QuranConvention 2023

The World #QuranConvention (WQC) organised by WUIF is more than just an ordinary Islamic event; it is a dedicated initiative for Muslims worldwide to be provided with a profound opportunity to immerse themselves in the depths of the Al-Quran. 

This year’s theme “Serve to be Served,” drawing profound insights from Surah Al-Insan allows participants to explore beyond reading its verses – the convention focuses on understanding and applying its teachings to transform our mindset and character in becoming Al-Abrar (The Righteous). These teachings act as guiding lights that apply to various aspects of life, from our homes and workplaces to communities and the global stage.

Expect a comprehensive and enriching experience brimming with intellectual and spiritual in-depth discussions led by renowned local and international scholars, including the esteemed Ustaz Nouman Ali Khan.
