The proposal was discussed by awards' organising committee which met yesterday under the chairmanship of Ibrahim Bu Melha, Vice-Chairman of the Dubai Justice Department and Dubai Attorney General, who heads the committee.

While members of the committee agreed with the proposal, they decided to send a letter to the Secretary General of the International Authority for Scientific Miracles Signs in the Holy Quran and Sunnah, to seek his opinion on the matter.

The committee looked at the nomination form for the Islamic Personality of the Year and made some changes in it.

The form will be printed and sent to various Islamic organisations, colleges, universities and selected personalities in the Muslim world for nomination of candidates for this year's award.

Names of the members of the panel of judges for the seventh DIHQA awards were also approved.

The judges are: Dr Ibrahim Al Dousari from Saudi Arabia, Sheikh Ahmed Al Maasarawi from Egypt, Dr Abdul Sallam Muqbil from Yemen, Sheikh Mohammed Hassan Bosso from Senegal and Sheikh Mohammed bin Ali Atfani from Morocco. A stand-by judge will be named at a later stage by Dr Aref Al Sheikh, head of the awards technical sub-committee.

The organising committee reviewed at the meeting blue prints for the new premises of DIHQA in order to finalise it and put up the project for tender.
