It is ISDEV culture. Whenever its members embark on a journey, three things would not be missing. Firstly, the journey will be filled with programmes such as short speeches, quiz, et cetera; they did not sleep on the journey. Secondly, they will hold congregrational prayers - either on the way or when they arrive at the destination. Thirdly, there will be tazkirah after the congregrational prayers.
So too was the culture when ISDEV members made a journey to Kuala Lumpur recently, from 20 to 23 February 2011. The photos below are self-explanatory.
These will be reiterated, InshaAllah, when 40 ISDEV members to be headed by me embark on another musafir trip abroad tomorrow, Friday 11 March 2011. We will be leaving for Medan, Indonesia to participate in two International Seminars and an intellectual expedition to Lake Toba, Prapat till 17 March 2011.
