Al-Azhar University Ready To Open Arabic Islamic Centre In Pahang

Print Email

CAIRO, Sept 24 (Bernama) -- Al-Azhar University is ready to set up an Arabic Islamic Centre in Pahang to help students, especially from religious schools, master Arabic.

Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Adnan Yaakob said today that the university expressed its willingness at a meeting he had with its acting-president, Prof Dr Mohammed Hassan Awad, here.

"The university has agreed in principle to send scholars to Pahang to teach Arabic. This (the setting up of the centre) will be discussed by the state government. I will also inform the Prime Minister and the Higher Education minister on the proposal," Adnan said.

Adnan, who is on a four-day working visit to Egypt, told reporters here that the opening of such a centre would be a great help because the state did not have enough Arabic language teachers, especially from the Middle East.

He said that Pahang now had 14 Arabic language teachers from Saudi Arabia, thanks to Tengku Mahkota Tengku Abdullah Sultan Ahmad Shah, who is the Pahang Islamic and Malay Custom Council president.

"We notice the mastery of Arabic among students has increased due to them being taught by genuine experts in the language," he said.

Adnan said that he had been informed that Al-Azhar University had started special sessions to help Malaysian students master Arabic.
