UNAIR NEWS –, 2016. It was held in the front yard of Ulul Azmi Mosque . UNAIR Rector Prof. Dr. H. Mohammad Nasih, SE., MT., Ak., MCA., delivered a sermon during the prayer.
In his sermon, Prof. Nasih said that Ramadan is the ‘University of Life’. We are taught to control our desires, not only through theoretical method but also practical method.
”We are expected to pass the test of this ‘Ramadan school’ be the winner of our own desires, so we can go back to our pure self,” said the professor on Accounting of Faculty of Economics and Business (FEB) UNAIR.
This provision from Ramadan will be useful to face the real war throughout the year. It is not only an individual war but it is a collective war as a society, and a unity of the nation.
According to UNAIR Rector in the sermon, this collective war is the war on ideas (ghozwul fikri), asymmetric war. Wars against atheism, individualism, liberalism to achieve maqashidus syariah.
”So the best provision to strive and to face this life with tests, trials, obstacles and hindrances was piety. We are expected to get this piety from this School of Ramadan”, said UNAIR Rector Prof. Moh Nasih.
A staff of Ulul Azmi Mosque, Agoes Widiastono was grateful that the Eid prayer can be held in the yard of the mosque and the Management Office Building, Campus C. It was because of many prayers participating in the prayer, from UNAIR academicians to the people around the campus C. Even though there was rain a night before, the prayers seemed unaffected by it. Furthermore, it was also the first time experience and it was a success.
“Hopefully in the future it will be better,” said Agoes. (*)
