“He/She is My Role Model Forever”

Nowadays, many of young Muslims have lost their direction in life. Most of them don’t know what to do
with their life, their time and whom to follow. With all media, social media and television exposure,
theystart to make Hollywood artists, pop stars, football players as their role model which is not ideal asmost of them will not obey Allah SWT and his Messenger.

This is mainly because very little opportunities for them to know, to understand, and to learn about t
hebest generations that ever walked on earth. We sincerely hope that KIBAR speech and writing competition is one of the solution to introduce and to expose them with some the best generation at
the time of the prophet Muhammad SAW.

The aim of this theme is to learn, understand and take example from the life of:

1.Abu Bakar As-Shidiq R.A. for Boys

2.Aisyah binti Abu Bakar R.A for Girls

And to develop and nurture taqwa, confident and truthful leader of the future from our own family.

Issues Presented

The main purpose of this speech and writing competition is to relate day-today life problems as a young
Muslims (relationship with Allah SWT, the love to Rasulullah SAW, children parents relationship, being
faithful, honesty, equality, ect.) and find a similarity and solutions from the life of Abu Bakar As-S
hidiqR.A. and Aisyah binti Abu Bakar R.A. In the end parents and children will have opportunities to
discuss and learn this at home and make them as role model.
