UUM FREE BAZAAR- AN OVERWHELMING SUCCESS

UUM Islamic Affairs Officer, Madam Siti Khairiah Parlan said, the Free Bazaar promotes the practice of sharing and giving back to the society. This is part of the Sunnah to help ease the burden of the underprivileged and also those in need.

She added that, after observing the free market programmes at other states, UUM Islamic Centre has decided to initiate this charity programme in UUM.

"This is not a corporate event, but a community event to show that we care and love each other," she said.

This programme marks the first of its kind in UUM and it was certainly a success story. The Free Bazaar brings together an assortment of products and services donated by the public specifically the campus community.

"Sadaqah (charity offerings) is a virtuous deed in Islam and it brings a person closer to the Almighty. Good deeds and charity give us the opportunity to attain the reward from Allah,” she added.

An assortment of new and pre-loved items that are still in good conditions such as wheelchairs, toys, clothing items, bags, shoes and tableware were donated for the cause.

Contributors can donate anything and also offer services for instance hairdressing or health checkup services, however, the promotion and sales of products are prohibited.
 
“Volunteers are also welcomed. They can assist in ensuring that the event runs smoothly and also help with the cleaning afterwards”.

The turnout from UUM community was certainly amazing and overwhelming. Many came as early as 9:00 am to set-up their booths/tables. A religious talk entitled “Pintu Dhuha” was delivered by Ustaz Othman Ali.

A Bachelor of Counselling student, Ms. Nurul Idayu Mohd. Ghadzali, 21, said this Free Bazaar has certainly helped the students as they haven’t received their National Higher Education Fund (PTPTN) study loan.

Nurul hopes that this kind of programme will be held again in UUM because it does not only benefit the students but the cleaners in UUM also get to take the donated items including eggs, sugar and biscuits.

A Bachelor of Science (Information Technology) student, Ms. Laura Lim Sie Yi, 23, said, the Free Bazaar promotes a culture of giving among the campus community and this effort will strengthen the bonds between the staff and students regardless of their background.

She also lauded the services offered by the University Health Centre (PKU) during the Free Bazaar. Staff of PKU offered free health check-up and also handed- out some medications and vitamins.

However, she admitted that some students feel shy to come to the free bazaar even though they themselves are underprivileged.

A volunteer, Ms. Syazwana Marzuki said, she is keen to participate in this charity drive and she contributed some clothing and food items such as spaghetti, bread and beverages.

Ms. Syazwana started collecting donations from her relatives since the last few weeks before partaking in UUM Free Bazaar.

“The small contributions and donations actually carry significant weights to those in need and we are certainly delighted to see the smile on their faces. It brings great satisfaction to us as well.

She also supports this charity drive and hopes that this free market initiative will be organised more frequently so that the campus community and volunteers can share what they have with those in need.
