Reason for joining the Islamicity Indices Project: I joined this project in order to get an insight of what is happening in Muslim countries. It will entail the acquisition of quantifiable data that will help explain the degree to which Islamic teachings are complied with in running the day-to-day affairs of a country. To help contribute such information through knowledge sharing towards the development of knowledge in such area and to compare and contrast between different countries in how they run their affairs relating to life and how Islam is used as a guide in such running of life and what impact it has on the people.

Hobby: I like to travel around the world and learn about the various cultures this earth has been blessed with. It gives me a first-hand feel of who and what the people are and their daily lives. This is giving me a memorable experience that I greatly cherish and lives forever.
