Inculcating education based on Tarbiyyah Islamiyyah or Islamic Teachings need to be practised by every family to avoid the occurrence of social negatives including proximity and drugs. Aqidah Education should be made a foundation in family life, aside from placing importance on religious education from a very young age. The call was highlighted at the Forum entitled ‘The Challenge of Protecting the Family From the Outbreak of Social Diseases: Proximity and Drugs’ held yesterday morning at Hassanal Bolkiah Mosque in Tutong Town.

The forum was facilitated by three panel members from the Seri Begawan Religious Teachers University College, KUPU SB, Community Development Department, JAPEM and the Narcotics Control Bureau. It aimed to expose Muslimahs to be more attentive and sensitive to current challenges namely social diseases such as proximity and drugs. Apart from that, it provides guidance and ways of identifying family problems and ways of overcoming it. The forum was attended by 400 people comprising members of the Belait District and Tutong District Mosque Muslimah Guidance Classes as well as school students in the Tutong District.
