SHAH ALAM – My #QuranTime programme has reached its summit with Khatam Tadabbur convocation programme on Oct 8 expected to garner up to 5,000 registrations.

Founder of Yayasan Warisan Ummah Ikhlas (WUIF) Datuk Hussamuddin Yaacub said the theme for this year’s convocation programme was ‘Kerinduan dan Kenangan Terindah Bersama al-Quran’ (The best moments with Quran).

“The My #QuranTime programme is a collaboration programme between Islamic Development Malaysia Department (JAKIM) and Yayasan Warisan Ummah Ikhlas (WUIF) as well as AlHijrah TV as the main broadcaster.

“The programme is streamed live on TV AlHijrah from 12 noon to 1pm daily starting from June 8, 2020.

“At first it was a continuation of Malaysia #QuranTime which was first introduced on March 20, 2020 on TV AlHijrah with the aim to present a meaningful programme for Malaysians who at that time were undergoing Movement Control Order (MCO) due to Covid-19 pandemic.

“Due to the constant support by Malaysians, WUIF and TV AlHijrah decided to continue the collaboration to produce My #QuranTime,” he said at the press conference of the My #QuranTime 1.0 convocation programme at Karangkraf Media headquarters, here, today.

So far, a total of 1,557 participants have registered for the programme which was expected to be held at Tuanku Mizan Zainal Abidin, Putrajaya on Oct 8 in line with Prophet Muhammad's birthday celebration (Maulidur Rasul).

Hussamuddin said due to the success of the programme which had come to an end, the collaborating parties decided to introduce My #QuranTime 2.0.

Also present during the press conference were TV AlHijrah chief executive officer Namanze Harris, WUIF chief executive officer Marhaini Yusoff, WUIF head of researcher and My #QuranTime reciter Fazrul Ismail and qari Ahmad Tarmiti Abdul Rahman as well as Tirmizi Ali.

Marhaini said the 8-year journey had involved all media, including Chinese media.

"There are now a total of 838 episodes for two years and eight months of airing.

“Not only do the spectators in Malaysia benefit from it, but there are also our neighbouring countries such as Singapore, Indonesia, Brunei and even Malaysians who are overseas," she said.

The main focus of the launch of My #QuranTime 1.0 is that people would spend an hour with the Quran daily followed by infaq culture cultivated among the audience through concept of waqf highlighted in the programme.

WUIF was also in the midst of constructing a studio at Karangkraf headquarters to be used for three years, which would be used by experts to research Quran and its content as well as for live programmes.
