ACTNews, PONTIANAK – Dozens of students from the Hidayatut Thullab Islamic Education Institute in Bangka Belitung Darat Village, Southeast Pontianak District, Pontianak City, West Kalimantan, received waqf Quran copies from Global Wakaf – Aksi Cepat Tanggap on Wednesday (11/17/2021).
The institution, which was founded by Ustaz Abdul Sallam in 2009, has a Quran memorization (hifz) program. Hence, they need Quran copies for the students. In addition, 53 students at this institution also learn how to read Islamic classical texts.
“The students only need to pay IDR 25,000 for the school’s needs such as board markers and erasers. However, if they can’t afford it, we won’t charge them,” said Mohammad Muslim, one of Hidayatut Thullab teachers.
Muslim added that the teachers work voluntarily without expecting any payment. Most of them are alumni of the institution. "Because the alumni have a sense of belonging to this institution, and there is an emotional attachment," he explained.
Muslim hoped that the community will continue to support Hidayatut Thullab's work, including by providing Quran copies. "Insha Allah, if the people here continue to support our struggle, our school will continue to thrive Insha Allah,” said Muslim. div style="text-align: center">
