First-Year PTMA Students Attended Islamic and Muhammadiyah Studies Public Lecture

To discuss Muhammadiyah as a movement is likened to talk about Islam as fundamental values and Muhammadiyah ideals. That was a statement from Prof. Dr. KH. Haedar Nashir, M.Si. in the opening of Islamic and Muhammadiyah Studies (AIK) Public Lecture, Monday (04/10).

Prof. Haedar stated Islam means submission, safe, peace, and divine. Submission means wholly submitting oneself to God naturally. Islam also means safe, which every Muslim and who learns Islam can get safety in the life of this world and the hereafter. Besides that, Islam also means peace. Learning, believing, and practicing Islamic values can bring to a secure life both in this world and in the hereafter. Islam also means divine and pure by practicing the pure values and divine energy on the mind and soul. These four values in worshipping Allah, which are submission, safe, peaceful, and blessed, should become a spirit in the mind and orientation practice in a lifetime.

Islam also contains aqidah ‘fundamental beliefs’ values, which believe in the oneness of Allah. By the aqidah values, someone will have a life principle as everyone who declares as Muslim has a clear foundation which not easily attracted by the life pleasure but also living a life in the world. Those are the importance of aqidah as a worship foundation. “So that we have to believe in our religion without condemning other religions,” he explained. Secondly, to practice what Allah commands by following what Rasulullah p.b.u.h. did. Thirdly, moral values are the way, the spirit, and the model of the act to practicing religious values. Fourth, muamalah duniawiyah values relate to the relationship between people and the environment of the universe.

Prof. Haedar also gave messages to the first-year students in PTMA all over Indonesia to be persons who love to learn. From an early age to the aged person in a lifetime, college students should continue to learn knowledge, religion, life lessons, and also be an autodidact. “The lecturers and PTMA leaders are the facilitators. The key to learning success is on yourselves. You should be a person who develops intelligence, mastering science and technology, and be professional,” he continued. Because Indonesia is still left behind in global competitiveness, students should become individuals with high responsibility and have above-average qualified competence. Because the student right now would be the future leader, they should not be careless and ignorant. They should be tenacious students and have a successful orientation in learning progress. “I hope the first-year students can make themselves religiously obedient, have a noble character, be intelligent, knowledgeable, independent, skilled students, and become people who are trustworthy and spread grace for the whole universe,” he concluded.
