UNAIR NEWS –Universitas Airlangga’s vision, Excellence with Morality is in the constitution of UNAIR. It makes UNAIR values, to be excellent in any activities based on morality. It was stated by Dr. M. Hadi Shubhan, SH., M.H., C.N, as the Director of Student Affairs UNAIR while briefing UNAIR delegation to MTQM (Musabaqah Tilawatil Quran Mahasiswa) Regional East Java held in Universitas Trunojoyo, Madura (UTM) from July 19 to July 21.
“Morality in this regard is religion. It makes this university excellent not only in academics, but also in its religiousness. Therefore one way to enliven it was through this MTQ,” he said on Monday, July 18.
UNAIR through its Religious Arts UKM sent 25 students selected from all faculties in UNAIR last April. The will leave for the competition Tuesday morning.
“The selection was followed by 300 students of UNAIR for 10 categories of competition,” said Muhammad Kholil, one of UNAIR representatives in MTQM for Tartil Quran.
For the preparation of the event held every other year, 25 students has been through intensive training in the Religious Arts UKM. Hadi said that the students participation in MTQM is UNAIR’s commitment to facilitate students’ talents. Besides, the newly built Ulul Azmi Mosque can also be a place to improve their talents.
“We are not kidding with our commitment, by establishing Religious Arts UKM. Then we provide assistance before they leave for the MTQ,” said Hadi.
In the training process, the obstacles the participants got were the time management. The training often held at the same time with their classes as the participants are all active students in each program.
“There were no special obstacles, but generally the activities relate to the academic, such as they cannot leave the classes,” said Hadi.
Despite this condition, the hope to win MTQM makes them even more determined as it also gives UNAIR good names, especially on religion based morality.
“We, 25 students representing UNAIR will give our best in MTQ,” said Dyah Tri Wulandari, the participant of MTQM in Sarhil Quran. “We can be close even more with Al-Quran,” she said. (*)
