The Muslim community in Brunei welcomed another Chinese convert into its fold as 25-year old Siti Khadijah Abdullah, known as Melly, formally converted to Islam at the residence of Hj Jadi-Hj Salleh in Kampong Lambak Kanan. Present to perform the conversion ceremony were personnel from the Islamic Dawah Centre, led by an officer of the Conversion Unit, Rokiah Mohammad.

Siti Khadijah Abdullah, the only member in her family to have converted to Islam, revealed that she always had an interest in the religion since she was a young girl and learned about it in school and her everyday life. According to Siti, the teachings and practices of Islam fascinated her and opened her heart to accept the religion. Following the conversion ceremony, Siti will take part in a programme by the Islamic Dawah Centre aimed at guiding her to live her life as a Muslim which is expected to start sometime this month.
