Kempen Let's Read The Quran (LRTQ) 2016

Kempen “Let’s Read The Quran (LRTQ) 2016”
Dari 1 Mac hingga 31 Mac 2016

Kempen Let’s Read The Quran telah dimulakan pada tahun 2009 oleh sekumpulan rakan. Ketika kempen itu dijalankan, kami telah menerima pelbagai tarikan dan penyertaan di mana lebih daripada 50 penulis blog telah menggunakan logo dan artikel-artikel kami.

Kempen ini adalah untuk menggalakkan orang ramai untuk membaca Al-Quran di dalam bahasa yang difahami. Ia bukanlah terhad kepada orang Islam sahaja. Kami menggalakkan sesiapa sahaja untuk menyertai kempen ini.

Pada 2016, kami ingin meluaskan lagi kempen ini. Kami telah menyenaraikan pelbagai aktiviti untuk menarik minat orang ramai untuk membaca Al-Quran. Walaupun ia berpusat di Malaysia, kami merancang untuk meluaskan kempen ini di peringkat antarabangsa.

Visi kami adalah untuk membuat kempen ini sebagai kempen tahunan dan akan membuat orang Islam dan orang lain untuk membaca dan memahami Al-Quran.

Walaupun rakyat Malaysia sentiasa menganjurkan pertandingan Tilawah Al-Quran, kami berharap Malaysia akan menjadi ketua dalam menggalakkan seluruh dunia untuk memahami dan menghayati Al-Quran juga.

Let's Read The Quran Campaign (LRTQ) 2016

Let’s Read The Quran 2016 Campaign
From 1st March to 31st March 2016

The Let’s Read The Quran campaign was initiated in 2009 by a group of friends. We received good traction and participation during the campaign where more than 50 bloggers carried our logo and articles.

This campaign is to encourage people to read the Quran in a language they understand. It is not confined to Muslims. We encourage everyone to join this campaign.

In 2016, we want to bring the campaign to a larger audience and take it a notch higher. We are outlining many interesting activities to attract and excite people to read the Quran. While centered in Malaysia, we plan to make the campaign known internationally.

Our vision is to make this campaign an annual effort and after that, it will be a recognized campaign that will spur Muslims and others to read and understand the Quran.
While today Malaysia leads in the Tilawah Al-Quran competition, we hope Malaysia becomes a leader in encouraging the world to read, understand and appreciate the Quran at the grassroots, too.


To make the Quran read and understood.

1.    To democratize the Quran
2.    To make every Muslim a student of the Quran
3.    To encourage non-Muslims to look at the Quran as a universal document
4.    To bring the Quranic values closer to the day-to-day living of Muslims
5.    To encourage people to read the Quran daily, even if it is one verse per day
6.    To invite non-Muslims to join Muslims to discuss the Quran.


 1st March 2016 – 31st March 2016.


YABhg Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad

Have A Meaningful Chinese New Year - Thursday in The STAR

"Moderates in this nation have to continue to speak up more strongly to retain a moderate and constitutional nation," Tan Sri Yuen Yuet Leng (1927 - 2015)

Let us be Moderate:
 Let’s practise diversity and inclusion

In our Christmas message, we elaborated the seventh point of the Ten Principles for a Moderate Malaysian. For Chinese New Year, we would like to share the eighth principle. Do look forward to the upcoming two.
Principle Number Eight.

I will embrace and practise diversity and inclusion. I will believe with all my heart that diversity is one of God’s greatest signs and gifts.

1.   What is diversity and inclusion (D&I)?
When we practise diversity, we consciously decide to respect and appreciate the differences in ethnicity, gender, age, national origin, disability, sexual orientation, education and religion. When we practise inclusion, we consciously focus on the needs of every individual and ensure that the right conditions are in place for each person to achieve his or her full potential.

    2.  Why is diversity and inclusion important?
   When we practise diversity and inclusion, we ensure that all individuals are treated fairly and respectfully, have equal access to opportunities and resources, and can contribute fully. We allow for positive differences to exist and be appreciated. Rather than being intimidated or prejudices by those differences, we encourage people to accept the fact that there are diverse interests, diverse values, and diverse physical and emotional characteristics present in the world. This will create an environment that brings out innovation, creativity and productivity.

3.   How can moderate Malaysians add value through D&I?
    Moderate Malaysians practise diversity and foster inclusion. They understand that D&I is the key to building an innovative and productive nation. They respect, welcome and treat others as how they expect to be treated. With D&I as part and parcel of their way of life, moderate Malaysians apply it as a tool to bring forth the best in the nation; both socially and economically.
