Do good with your life and bring happiness to others
Always enrich your life by doing good deeds and aiding others.
Aiding others is not limited to giving away riches or material things, but it is enough to lend a helping hand to ease the burden of the people around us. What matters is the commitment to help regardless of position or relation, and it is the intent that counts.
According to the Imam Besar of Pahang’s State Mosque, Ustaz Dato’ Haji Badli Shah Haji Alauddin, in daily life, the practice of congratulating other peoples’ success to share the joy with others is also a virtue.
“Likewise, in interactions, we should speak with courteous language and use a level of language suitable to the situation when communicating, as we live in a society.
“Having faith in others is a righteous act that ensures good relations between you and your friends. When your heart is free of misgiving, then all that is left in your heart is good faith in others.
“At the same time, having faith in other people helps society avoid antagonism that only acts as a hindrance to unions and organisations.
“Rid yourself of spitefulness; amity and unison promote teamwork, uniting hearts and bringing good to others. For example, providing a relief stream for free meals for students and also for staff could bring them much joy,” he said on 21 January 2020 at the Banquet Hall, Chancellery, UMP Pekan.
He added that there are four good deeds in the name of Allah SWT that elevates one’s status — pursuing beneficial knowledge, avoiding arrogance, helping others, and good conduct.
Concurrently, he also advised the UMP associates to continue their efforts and support the formation of SEJAHTERA to promote teamwork and harmony.
Ustaz Dato’ Haji Badli Shah was present to present a speech titled “UMP Prosperity - Unity Begets Blessings” in conjunction with Siri Keenam: Bicara Cendekiawan Mulia in conjunction with the First Biannual General Meeting of the Association of UMP Staff Welfare and Goodwill (SEJAHTERA).
Also in attendance were the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic & International), Professor Ts. Dr. Mohd. Rosli Hainin, Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Student Affairs & Alumni), Professor Dato’ Dr. Yuserrie Zainuddin and Chairman of the SEJAHTERA Pro Tem Committee, Dr. Muhammed Nafis Osman Zahid.
SEJAHTERA is a platform to gather all associates from various ranks as a large family in UMP that will continue to propel UMP’s core values.
It is also seen as a catalyst in creating a community in UMP which has understanding, strong brotherhood, harmony, and mutual respect to continuing ‘Moving Together’ to achieve greatness.
