PUTRAJAYA, July 27 2010 (Bernama) -- The country's two women Syariah judges, who will take up appointment officially on Aug 2, paid a courtesy call on Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak at his office here Tuesday.

Rafidah Abdul Razak, 39, and Surayah Ramlee, 31, met with Najib for about 30 minutes from 9am.

Also present at the meeting were Najib's wife, Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor, Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Datuk Seri Jamil Khir Baharom and Chief Syariah Judge and director-general of the Malaysian Syariah Judiciary Department Tan Sri Ibrahim Lembut.

Rafidah will serve at the Federal Territory of Kuala Lumpur Syariah Court and Surayah at the Putrajaya Syariah Court.

Najib had announced the appointment of the two women Syariah judges early this month, and said it was to enhance justice in cases involving families and women's rights and to meet current needs.

Jamil Khir told reporters Najib advised the judges to discharge their responsibilities well and to be impartial in making judgments.

Rafidah and Surayah said they would heed the advice of the prime minister to carry out their duties to the best of their capabilities in accordance with the law.

You are so sweet. Thank you for letting me know that those stories were for me.

I loved reading them.

Also, my heart breaks over the news of your blogging friend. I am so sorry she lost the battle with breast cancer. My prayer is that someday there will be a cure.

May she rest in eternal peace.

Love Melissa

Yes Mel, those stories are meant for you. I am not so knowledgeable to write something as factual about Islam. No words from the Quran and Hadith should be altered in whatever ways. I am also still learning, and I found that, the more I discover, the lesser that I know...

Islam is simple Mel. Like you said, Allah is easy to find. Islam is the way of life. It completes our life cycle, it is so comprehensive that it covers every details in this universe. Everywhere you go, see, touch, breath, smell, walk on and so forth and so forth... all belongs to the same and only Creator.

May you find what you are looking for and I would try to share with you from time to time.

Yes, and in the same week I lost two friends who are cancer related patients. It's heart breaking indeed. I met OBB once and she was such a warm and positive person. I pray that her children (2 boys) would carry on the legacy she left behind.... strong in faith, will and attitude.
