This study uses quantitative approaches and the study data is analyzed using the SPSS version 22.0 software. To obtain information, a survey form was distributed to 300 respondents. They consist of factory workers at all levels. This study using random sampling was easy to select for respondents' information. The research instrument covers the achievement of da'wah activities at the factory. Then the data obtained were analyzed using deductive method. The information was obtained through the observation methodology of the factory premises and the working culture of the premises. The findings show that da’wah activities have been implemented with frequency once a week. The mean value of the implementation of da'wah activities is 2.57. This is a good achievement. The program is lectures, tazkirah, fardu 'ain classes, recital of al-Qur'an, remembrance, circumcision prayers, nasyid and daily prayer memorizing programs. In conclusion, the achievement of da'wah activities implemented in the SMIs is a motivation for employees to always adhere to the will of the religion in all life while working and out of hours. The study also provides guidance and understanding between employers and employees during the implementation of da'wah activities because through da'wah activities can produce quality workers and increase the productivity of SMEs. <br> <br>Keywords: Implementation, Da’wah Program, workers, Small &amp; Medium Industry. </p> 2019-08-08T08:08:30+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## PENGARUH ANIMISME DALAM ADAT KEMATIAN ORANG SUNGAI DI DAERAH PITAS, SABAH: SATU TINJAUAN 2019-08-08T08:14:10+00:00 Khairulnazrin Nasir, KNasir Abdul Rahim Kamarul Zaman Saifullah Mamat <p>Funeral rites refer to beliefs, rules and practices involving the handling of the dead body, burial, post-burial rituals and beliefs in the spirits. The Muslim community in the Pitas district of Sabah, which consists of various tribes, also has its distinctive funeral rites. The objective of the study is to conduct an observation on their funeral rites that are affected by animism. The method used to get the data was interview, which involved informants among the community leaders. This study has found that some funeral rites have been influenced by animism. Hence, this issue should be taken into account, especially for Muslim preachers and authorities such as JHEINS.</p> 2019-08-08T08:13:09+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Classification of synthetic platelets in digital holographic microscopy by neural network 2019-08-13T03:56:55+00:00 Khairul Fikri Tamrin Bahbibi Rahmatullah <p>Automatic classification of cell types and biological products are considered crucial in the field of hematology especially for early detection of diseases when the quantity that needs to be examined is considerably large. In a previous study, a cylindrical micro-channel was employed to mimic actual blood flow in the arteriole but it was found to cause astigmatism in the reconstructed holographic particle images. Additionally, correction of the images is important to avoid false disease detection. In this paper, we describe a new application of feed-forward backpropagation neural network for classifying images of astigmatic and non-astigmatic synthetic platelets that were obtained by digital holographic microscopy. Image cropping was performed to suppress noise, followed by image normalization to reduce variation in contrast/brightness. Using MATLAB<sup>TM</sup>, a two-layer neural network with two class classifier was trained with these images to compute the weights of each layer and the performance was benchmarked against three performance indices. The results show that the present method was able to classify 1050 platelet images with 100% recognition rate for Class 1 (non-astigmatic) and 71.4% recognition rate for Class 2 (astigmatic). The trained neural network was then applied to a set of 9000 images. Finally, digital aberration correction by complex-amplitude correlation was successfully applied to correct for the astigmatism.</p> 2019-08-13T03:56:52+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement##
