SHAH ALAM, Selangor, Dec 12

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful,

See the title? SHAH ALAM, Selangor, Dec 12.

That is what you call a dateline.

It is a line of text, usually at the beginning of an article or a news report, which shows the date and origin of an article.

So if you tell me that you have a dateline to adhere to, I would assume that whatever you are doing now must have taken place from the dateline that you are mentioning.

Allah knows best.
