A NATION OF COMPASSION
Zulhijah 29 1440H/ August 30 2019
The Warisan Ummah Ikhlas Foundation enters its 5th year of organizing Malaysia #QuranHour on August 30, 2019. It is held in conjunction with National Day celebrations on August 31, 2019. The Malaysia #QuranHour is a campaign to “Instigate a Quranic Nation and Sincere Ummah” by inviting Malaysians in the country and abroad to interact with the Quran through Read, Understand and Apply as the framework of an independent nation.
In 2019, Surah Al-Kahf is selected as the theme surah that will provide guidance to overcome the challenges in the “end of time” period. In the last World #QuranHour, in the movement to interact with the Quran throughout the world, Surah Al-Kahf was deliberated in the context of 4 stories that refer to 4 major challenges and solutions based on the Quran; Faith Challenges, Property Challenges, Knowledge Challenges and Power challenges.
As we approach the 62nd year of Malaysia’s independence, Surah Al-Kahf will continue to be pegged as the “Independence Message” based on the last 10 verses of Surah Al-Kahfi and its relation to the first 10 verses. Of these, there are 9 key messages for Independent Malaysians to adhere to, from the values acquired in the Quran.
Al-Kahf’s 2019 mission continues through this time, in an effort to convey the message to Malaysians about the transformation of an independent mindset based on Surah Al-Kahf World challenges in the globalization era require solutions; and it can be dealt with through Divine intervention with guidance from the Quran.
Surah Al-Kahf among others focuses on the importance of gratitude and the afterlife more than the pleasures of the world. The Quran through tadabbur is a source of wisdom and appreciation and through the tazakkur can transform its values as acts of execution that can be shared harmoniously by citizens of various races and religions like Malaysia.
This effort hopes to bring the people together to make the Quran and the value it brings as a solution and a way of life, with the concept of Rahmatan lil Aalamiin to be the core of unity for the people in Malaysia, in particular and around the world, in general.
An independence steered with the value and guidance from Quran will be able to empower and polish the potential of every individual in society who will eventually, in turn, create a Nation of Compassion, InshaAllah.
The Malaysia #QuranHour organized with the Department of Islamic Development Malaysia (JAKIM) also witnessed Media collaboration especially Astro Oasis with synergy partners comprising of government and non-governmental organizations, corporate sectors, educational institutions, organizations and individuals in solidarity with the Quran regardless of political status, economic and social.
The prime location of Malaysia’s #QuranHour is located at Masjid Putra, Putrajaya and will be held throughout Malaysia as well as by Malaysians abroad. The #QuranHour hotspots record up to May 2019 is over 3000 registered hotspot locations nationwide and 300 hotspot locations in 70 countries with social media reach of 1.46 billion.
WORLD OF COMPASSION
25 Ramadan 1440H/ 30 May 2019
#QuranHour is a high impact campaign initiated by Warisan Ummah Ikhlas Foundation (WUIF) to encourage every individual to interact with Al-Quran through Read, Understand and Apply . It is an effort to instill the soul of compassion until it becomes a way of life. The campaign is meant to inspire the human race to reach their full potential based on the Quranic Operating System and Mindset.
The 2019 Al-Kahf Mission invites communities to understand the 4 Challenges and Solutions from the ‘ibrah’ or lessons of Surah Al-Kahf. The 1440H World #QuranHour, Haramain #QuranHour, Malaysia #QuranHour and State #QuranHour will focus on the deliberation of Surah Al-Kahf from every angle of the challenges and solutions based on “divine solutions’.
The understanding of the Surah is intended to prepare communities in terms of physical, emotional, intellectual and spiritual perspectives from the context of Al Quran in addressing the world that has become “VUCA” (volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous). The understanding of Surah Al-Kahf will be the fort and base for the ummah to acquire the capability of steering life in accordance to the guidance of Al Quran from the framework underlined by Allah S.W.T. Beginning from this understanding, the on-going process of self transformation (Islah) will result in positive changes to human civilization and the birth of A Nation of Compassion, insha Allah.
This year’s World #QuranHour on 25 Ramadan 1440H, equivalent to 30 May 2019 with the theme ‘Global Challenges’ Solutions” is a campaign to establish a solidarity platform capable of unifying the global ummah under the banner of Al-Quran whilst capturing the spirit of the 10 blessed days in the end of Ramadan. It is an effort to develop a commitment to self transformation towards excellence. World #QuranHour aspires to be the base of global unity for the ummah regardless of position, background, ideology, political affiliation, race ethnicity and religion; leaders or citizens. Al Quran will be the meeting point for the rise and unity of the ummah in establishing a World of Compassion.
MY FAMILY #QURANHOUR
Throughout the year
My Family #QuranHour is the heart of the campaign. Following incidents of which cooperation and compassion among multiracial societies are threatened by divisive forces, returning to the basic as manifested in Al-Quran is increasingly important in protecting the family institution. Thus, #savingfamilies continues as a 100 years legacy programme intended to unify the people to build a great nation through strengthening the family bonding by applying the principles and formula guided by Al-Quran.
SOUL OF COMPASSION
365 days a year
My #QuranHour is the main aim for this campaign, at least One Hour with al-Quran 365 days a year, anywhere.
The campaign is to encourage every individual to read, understand and apply the values from the Quran in their daily lives from the soul of compassion.
It is about creating Quranic Mindset and Quranic Operating System in their souls and eventually unleash Quranic values in their Character.
Reflection of Al-Fatihah, as a concise framework of human way of life; defining key stone habit through Al-Quran, Solat and Infaq (QSI) with leadership success factor from Al-Baqarah Ayat 1-5; safeguarding the hearts through enjoining the good and forbidding evil from Surah Yasin; good family governance from Surah Luqman, and Surah An-Naml, all are applied as pertinent principles for developing a progressive and an ideal civilized nation.
These are comprehensive Quranic Model as enunciated in the Al-Quran. If those conditions and ethical injunctions in the circle of Surahs are acted upon within all levels of societies, we would be able to have a peaceful living atmosphere, full of tolerance, consideration and contentment, free from ill-treatments and unethical traits among members of the societies.
