Assalamualaikum Dr, saya Ridzwan dari kelas hubungan etnik kumpulan 18 Dr. ingin bertanya, pembangunan sekarang sudah pun ada dimana membangun dari segi ekonomi, sosial, dan pembangunan taraf hidup rakyat itu sendiri, tetapi apa kaitannya dengan spiritual development dengan pembangunan sesebuah negara? Adakah valunteerism ini sama seperti apa yang dilakukan oleh ahli politik negara dalam sukarela dalam berkhidmat bagi membangunkan negara?
