Palembang, S. Sumatra (Indonesia Window) – The Al-Quran Waqf Board (locally known as BWA) has again distributed 20,000 copies of Al-Quran in a number of regions in Indonesia’s South Sumatra province.
In its press release received on Tuesday, the Al Quran Waqf Board’s Chief of Networking and Distribution, Hazairin Hasan, said that the distribution was the phase 2 of the South Sumatra Al-Quran Waqf and Development project initiated by BWA, an Indonesian philanthropy agency.
“Hopefully with the presence of BWA distributing Al-Quran, it can increase the enthusiasm of the people of South Sumatra to learn Al-Quran, and God willing, many Al-Quran memorizers would emerge from here,” Hazairin said Monday, (11/9).
Hazairin explained, the second phase of distribution was completed in early September.
“In this phase 2 distribution, the copies of Al-Quran were distributed in several areas in South Sumatra, namely Ogan Komering Ilir District, East Ogan Komering Ulu District, Ogan Komering Ulu District, Prabumulih City, Lubuklinggau City, Lahat District, Pagar Alam City, and Ogan Ilir Distirct,” he added.
Hazairin further said the community welcomed the activity which was carried out by BWA.
Several community leaders including the Chairman of the Indonesian Ulema Council (MUI) in Lubuklinggau City, KH. Dr. (HC) Syaiful Hadi Ma’afi, BA supported the activity, saying the distribution was very beneficial.
“I would like to express my gratitude to BWA and the wakif (she or he who donates her or his property) for Al-Quran waqf (endowment) that has been distributed in Lubuklinggau. Hopefully our children can become easier to memorize Al-Quran, and for the wakif, hopefully what has been entrusted would become jariyah practice (charity with continuous rewards),” said Syaiful Hadi.
In addition to the activity, the Al-Quran Waqf Board also held trainings on making liquid organic fertilizer for farmers in Bunut Village, Pagar Dewa Village, Nendagung Ilir Village, Senabing Village, and Sungsang Village.
“With the implementation of this fertilizer making trainings, BWA hopes that farmers would no longer find it difficult to meet their fertilizer needs, and God willing, it would increase their incomes,” Hazairin Hasan said.
