SIMCMS be holding Halaqah Series on a monthly basis focusing on various topics such as ethics, religion, economics, culture, science and many more, which fits in our club's mission & vision.

The topic of the Halaqah Series 2013 will be Finding The Meaning Of True Happiness 2.

The objectives for this Halaqah are:

1. Current Problems Faced by Potential Married Couples
2. Dilemma in Idealism vs Realism
3. Ways to Handle Problems

We will be looking at the micro-level for example, on the issues faced by singles regarding the choice for having a Build-To-Order (BTO). Another example would the the New Paper article on Till 'debt do they part, where the couple took 3 years to save around $10 000 but in the end, spending about $25 000 and having troubles to clear his debt.

The macro-level aspect will be focusing on the recent studies showing the rise in the number of singles than couples (married). The government issued a statement recently that they are willing to provide $25 000 for companies starting up a match-making business.

Last but not least, the perspective of Malay-Muslim community on various issues like cost, expectation, ratio of male to female etc. For example, having expectations is not wrong but the concern is the measure of one's expectation. Questions like 'the best one vs the right one' and making a good choice.

It is also with reference to the book of Imam Al-Ghazali, The Alchemy of Happiness.

This Halaqah Series will be conducted in a forum setting, where there will be other panelists consisting of two of our alumnis and a moderator to facilitate the discussion after the presentation given by our guest speaker

Our guest speaker will be Ustaz Syed Mustafa Alsagoff.
