National Commission on Muslim Filipinos replaces Office of Muslim Affairs

Hon. Omera H. Dianalan-Lucman was appointed by President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo as the first Secretary/Chief Executive Officer of the National Commission on Muslim Filipinos (NCMF), an agency created by virtue of Republic Act 9997 to succeed the now defunct Office on Muslim Affairs (OMA).

The NCMF will have nine commissioners including the Secretary/Chief Executive Officer, who will represent the Commission at cabinet-level meetings with the President. The Commission will cover both local and national concerns of Muslim Filipinos, including the implementation of economic, educational, cultural, and infrastructure programs for Muslim Filipino communities.

Among the main programs of the NCMF is the coordination of the annual hajj pilgrimage to Makkah, participation in international Qur'an reading competitions, and other educational and cultural activities of relevance to Muslim Filipino communities.

Muslim Filipino students who intend to study abroad should coordinate with the NCMF to have their academic documents properly authenticated before traveling to the country where they will pursue their higher education.

The NCMF is located at 79 Jocfer (Annex) Bldg, Commonwealth Avenue, Diliman, Quezon City and may be reached by telefax at +63 2 952 4875.

    Ifnan (Sunday, 26 February 2012 19:16)

    bakit po parang ang bagal ng administration ng shariah bar exams results compare to regular bar exam? nakakadiscourage naman po ang ganito.. ang liit pa naman ng mga examinees.. dapat bigyan pansin din ng halaga at mabilis na resulta ang shariah bar exam..

  • #21

    Ifnan (Sunday, 26 February 2012 19:28)

    suggested answer to habeeba question: In the eyes of Shariah Law, your marriage is null and void. Under the law, non-muslim men are prohibited to marry muslim women. However, in the eyes of Civil Code of the Philippines, your marriage is valid.

    suggest to neliver: You need a shariah counselor to brought it to the shariah court.
