He said the matter should be debated at the Pahang State Assembly being that it had been some time since the syariah law in the state was enhanced.
He said the parties involved should start by improving the relevant laws.
"If we do not do it now, maybe we will never do it after this...we should begin (the process) first before the details are refined by the administration and the legislature. We will enhance the Syariah law in stages," he said after opening Masjid Jamek As-Sobirin at Felda Kampung New Zealand here, today.
Also present were Maran MP Datuk Seri Ismail Abdul Muttalib and Pahang Islamic Da'wah and Special Tasks Committee chairman Datuk Seri Syed Ibrahim Syed Ahmad.
Tengku Abdullah said he was aware that the matter may raised concerns among certain quarters and that was why it had to be done properly.
"We cannot deny or run away from certain parties who are trying to twist the facts and take advantage of our efforts.
"Therefore, before going to the next stage, all information related to this effort should be published for all parties so that they can understand the purpose of its implementation," he said.
In another development, Tengku Abdullah advised single mothers to continue to work hard to improve their standard of living.
Speaking at the presentation of aid to 1,446 single mothers in Maran at the Arena Tengku Muda here today, he said they should educate their children well, increase their income and to together help to generate economy.
"I suggest single mothers set up a cooperative to improve their economy and find ways to provide the best education for their children to ensure a better future," he added.
As parents, he said, they should monitor their children's movement and activities to ensure they do not mix with bad hats.
