Bruwick recently celebrated Maulud Nabi for the second time since its establishment in 2007. Present as the guest of honour was Ustaz Haji Sammali.

Also present at the ceremony were the officers from the Brunei Student Union (BSU) in London namely Cikgu Khaleed Haji Sulaiman, Al-Aseer Hj Md Yussof, Warden Pg Wahab and the Religious Secretary of the Brunei Student Union.

The event started with the recitation of the al-Quran and its translation by the religious officer from the Bruwick Committee, Norsaidi Serail, followed by a talk from Ustaz Haji Sammali, which conveyed the importance of remembering Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) and his sunnah.

A brief history of the Prophet and the difficulties faced during dakwah shed light on the emphasis that the students must also face the trials that befall them with courage and certainty and they should strive in their endeavour in gaining knowledge and aim for the best despite any shortcomings.

After the talk was a recitation of the 'Dikir Marhaban' that signified the praise of the Prophet while reinforcing a sense of solidarity among the attendees.

Students also had the opportunity to talk with the officers during the short "makan-makan" session. Winners of the short quiz that was held prior to the talk were announced during the "makan-makan" session, followed by the presentation of gifts of appreciation to all BSU officers.

Grateful students hoped that the celebration will continue to be a highlighted legacy shared by all Brunei-Warwick students for more years to come, not only to encourage closer ties among students but to gain knowledge and aspire to follow the teachings of the Prophet (pbuh) in the spirit of creating a similar 'home' to Brunei, abroad.

Well done to Hadina for the article! Insha Allah in the hope that Bruwick will move with another pace towards excellence for Brunei Darussalam and especially for our beloved religion. Ameen ya rabb...
