The function began with the reading of the Quranic verses by Dayangku Ummi Syazana Binti Pengiran Haji Marjuki, winner of the national youth Al-Quran Musabaqah 1437 hijrah.
'Berwawasan yang berkat dengan bercontoh kepada Rasulullah Sallallah 'Alaihi Wasallam' or 'A Blessed Vision guided by examples from the Prophet' is the theme of this year's Women's Special Assembly. Dayang Hajah Siti Azizah binti Haji Musa in her welcoming speech said a 3-day exhibition and sales by local women entrepreneurs are sideline activities of the gathering.
Emulating the visions of Prophet Muhammad S.A.W. in seeking blessings and sincerity in alms-giving without the intention of being pretentious, was portrayed in a performance by students of Katok Arabic Secondary School.
The secrets behind blessed visions guided by the examples set by Rasulullah, will bring benefits and fortune not only to oneself but also to the family and nation. Dayangku Norhayati Binti Pengiran Haji Kasharan, a Religious Officer from the Islamic Dakwah Centre in a special talk titled 'Berwawasan Yang Berkat Dengan Bercontoh Kepada Rasulullah Shallallahu Alaihi Wasallam' or 'A Blessed Vision guided by examples from the Prophet' said that a blessed vision is a distant view towards achieving important goals of a country aimed at an everlasting well-being and happiness. Given a peaceful country like Brunei Darussalam it is easy for the people to practise Islam as a complete way of life. Maintain the religious faith as a sign of gratitude to Allah and be grateful for the facilities provided by the government. All of us share the blessings received by the faithful in the country.
The ceremony was enlivened with a Dikir Marhaban presentation by officers and staff of the Ministry of Religious Affairs, Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade and members of the Brunei Darussalam Women's Council. To seek blessings for the ceremony, doa selamat was read by Datin Hajah Maznah binti Haji Muhammad.
This year's is the 23rd Women's Special Assembly. To support the development of the local women's small and medium enterprises, the Exhibition and Sale in conjunction with the assembly, showcase halal products and services by local women entrepreneurs.
The exhibition provides financial and business advice services by the relevant agencies, besides raising community awareness on stakeholders' facilities and services in the economic development of the people in the country. Apart from that, the exhibition also promotes the importance of halal food in moving towards a healthy and dynamic nation. The Special Assembly this time was conducted by the Ministry of Religious Affairs and the Women Council of Brunei Darussalam.
