INCEIF vs H1N1

Salam,

Aku copy and paste info ni dari WIKIPEDIA..

The International Centre for Education in Islamic Finance (INCEIF) is the global university offering academic and professional qualifications in Islamic finance.

Among others, INCEIF is committed to elevate and advance Islamic financial knowledge, develop future leaders in the Islamic finance industry through learning programmes and serve as the centre for collaboration with other Islamic financial educational centres. [1]

This is important to the Malaysian Islamic finance industry as it is seen to be the most progressive and attractive in the world with banking assets exceeding US$30 billion and having the largest Islamic private debts securities market of US$35 billion. [2]

The establishment of INCEIF reflects the need to invest in human capital to advance the Islamic finance industry forward. An endowment fund of RM500 million was allocated by Bank Negara Malaysia to cover the operational expenditure of INCEIF.[3]

INCEIF offers three academic and professional qualifications:[4]

Certified Islamic Finance Professional (CIFP)
Masters in Islamic Finance
PhD in Islamic Finance


In its effort to establish a network of mutual cooperation and collaboration between institutions of higher learnings, INCEIF entered into a strategic partnership with institutions of higher learnings in Malaysia to strengthen the ability to leverage on the respective institutions expertise in research. This is in addition to strategic relationships with Takaful operators and similar institutions from Indonesia, Pakistan and Sri Lanka.

The International Shari'ah Research Academy for Islamic Finance (ISRA) which was established to promote applied research in Islamic finance, is also part of INCEIF. ISRA also act as the repository of Islamic knowledge for Shariah views or fatwas and undertake studies in contemporary issues in Islamic financial industry. [7]

Nation’s first A(H1N1)-related death

PUTRAJAYA: The nation had its first Influenza A (H1N1)-related death Thursday.
An Indonesian patient died of underlying conditions and health authorites said the cause of death was cardiac arrest.


Health Minister Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai said the 30-year-old first-year student from the International Centre for Education in Islamic Finance, Kuala Lumpur, had died from cardiac arrest due to ventricular fibrillation (irregular heart rhythm).

“The Influenza A (H1N1) was not a direct cause of his death,” he said at a press conference.

The patient went back to Indonesia for a holiday and returned to Malaysia on July 5 and was reported to be suffering from a mild fever and cough, he said.

On July 21, the patient fainted while waiting for his medication after consulting a doctor at a private medical centre in Kampung Baru, Kuala Lumpur, Liow said.

He was given emergency treatment but he passed away at 11.50am. “A post mortem was carried out at the Kuala Lumpur Hospital on the same day and the results showed that the patient was obese, had pneumonia, an enlarged heart and liver and pus-like material at the bottom of the trachea,” he said.

Liow said 20 specimens had been taken to carry out virology, bacterialogy, histopatology, bio-chemical and toxicology tests.

The virology and bacteriology tests on lung tissues and the trachea showed the presence of Influenza A (H1N1). “We are still waiting for other test results and the cause of death will be confirmed once all the tests are completed,” he said.

Liow said 25 staff members of the medical centre were ordered to self-quarantine themselves for seven days while seven of his room mates and study group were identified and one of them had sought treatment for influenza symptoms.

The ministry also carried out health checks yesterday at the college, he said.

sekian...harap maklum.
