Youth Development Programs must always emphasise on balance between practices of this world and the Hereafter in shaping youth who are not only skilled and knowledgeable, but also have strong faith and stance. This was underlined by the Minister of Culture, Youth and Sports at the National Youth Musabaqah Tilawatil Al-Quran that took place last night.

Yang Berhormat Retired Major General Dato Paduka Seri Haji Aminuddin Ihsan bin Pehin Orang Kaya Saiful Mulok Dato Seri Paduka Haji Abidin also said as future leaders, characteristics such as emphasising both the world and the Hereafter must exist and be upheld by the youth so that they have a strong identity reinforced by wise and visionary leadership based on the Malay Islamic Monarchy system.

5 male and 5 female readers presented their reading in the final. The National Youth Musabaqah Tilawatil Al-Quran was won by Awang Abdull Muin bin Haji Abdul Hamid and Dayangku Siti Ummi Syazana binti Pengiran Marjuki. Also present was Pengiran Dato Seri Paduka Haji Bahrom bin Pengiran Haji Bahar, Deputy Minister of Religious Affairs.
