It was a very special day for five people who embraced Islam yesterday, as His Majesty the Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam consented to witness their conversion ceremony after presenting keys to 650 housing recipients under Kg Panaga 2,000 Houses Project.
Among those who opened their hearts to the Islamic faith were the three children of Daraman anak Igol - Md Afzanizam Azman bin Abdullah Daraman, 16; Nor Ami binti Abdullah Daraman, 14; and, Nur Asyikin binti Abdullah Daraman, 12.
"Even though my parents have not embraced Islam, they fully supported my sisters and I to open our hearts to the Islamic faith," said Md Afzanizam Azman.
The other two who converted to Islam were relatives of Sabari Hj Ahmed, one of the successful housing recipients under Kg Panaga 2,000 Houses Project - Nurul Amalina binti Abdullah Serai and Khairul Anwar bin Abdullah.
