Al-Hamdulillaah! I've just given my first public talk on Islam, although not fully recovered but I managed, by the Grace of Allah after 2 years since suffering the stroke.
My appreciation to Darul Arqam (the Muslim Converts Asociation of Singapore) for making it possible, to my students and all who availed themselves on that night to hear me struggled to speak. Hope the powerpoint-slides had helped for better understanding.
Herewith I hope to also share gist of what I've delivered by way of the powerpoint I had prepared, as aid for those who may find it useful for further reflection, discussion etc. as those issues ought to be further contemplated by us - especially at this time. Also, through this powerpoint, it can still be a means to share the ideas with others who may have missed attending the actual talk.
Any comments are most welcomed, especially from those who attended that in-house talk. I pray my slurred speech did not impede your understanding of the message that I'd hoped to deliver. Those who did not attend (especially those abroad or who were not informed of the event) may also comment on the issues I've raised, by viewing the attached slides (powerpoint).
I intend, inshaAllaah to continue it with a series of lecture expanding & elaborating the said theme.
May Allah grant us with profound understanding (yufaqqih) of our Deen-al-Islam, and make us benefit from every knowledge towards making us become the people of Taqwa, by Allah's Grace & Mercy.
O Allah! (You are) the Most Merciful of those who show mercy!

سُبْحَا نَكَ لا عِلْمَ لَنَا إِلا ماعَلمْتَنَا إنَّكَ أَنْتَ الْعَليِمُ الْحَكِيْم
وَالَّصَلا ةُ وَالسَّلامُ على سَيْدِنَا مُحَمَّدٍ وَعَلَى ألهِ وَأصحْابِهِ وسُلِيم
وَأخِرُ دَعْوَنَا والْحَمْدُ لِلَه رَبِ الْعَالَمِين
