Tahfiz institute aims to produce more hafiz

BINTULU: The Bintulu Tahfiz Institute (ITB) in Kidurong here has produced a Quran hafiz, within three years and four months since it started operating in 2009.

ITB advisor cum Darul Hidayah Mosque chairman Abd Naser Abd Wahab said with the success, ITB would try to produce more hafiz each year.

He said the success of ITB was also attributed to contribution to the Muslim community and the public every Friday prayer as the fund was utilised to administer ITB.

“We welcome contributions from any party or non-governmental organisations, government departments and individuals, to further assist the institute.

“We at ITB do not have any financial resources and expect regular student fees and donations from the Muslim community bringing in about RM5,000 a month,” he said.

He added Baitulmal fund and donations would be very helpful for the institute.

He said this when speaking during the visit of Minister in the Chief Minister’s Office (Islamic Affairs) Datuk Daud Abd Rahman on Saturday, who later presented RM10,000  donation being Baitulmal fund to the institute.
