ACTNews, NORTH JAKARTA, BALIKPAPAN, BANJAR BARU, PADANG – Safari Subuh by Aksi Cepat Tanggap (ACT) has been carried out several times across Indonesia. The program which provides Islamic study and meal distribution has increased people’s enthusiasm to perform Fajr prayer and worship.

Among many places, Safari Subuh has been held in Banjar Baru City, South Kalimantan, Balikpapan, East Kalimantan, Padang of West Sumatra, and Koja District of North Jakarta. “The program aims to assist people especially mosque congregants and surrounding residents who are about to start their activity ahead of fajr and rise of the sun. Safari Subuh also becomes the umpteenth program by ACT who collaborates with Mosque committees,” explained Mohammad Irfan, Branch Manager of ACT North Jakarta during Safari Subuh in Assuada Mosque, Sunday (11/21/2021).

The action was welcomed enthusiastically by surrounding people and the congregants including H. Aswat, the administrator of Jami Al Ula Mosque, Balikpapan East Kalimantan.

“Hopefully, this Safari Subuh Action can strengthen people’s solidarity to worship especially in fajr time. Jami Al Ula Mosque is the first and oldest mosque in Balikpapan located at the center of economic activity during Dutch colonialism. Furthermore, the mosque was constructed based on mutual cooperation from merchants and travelers from outside," he said on Tuesday (11/23/2021).

On the same day, benefits were also spread for traders around Al Muttaqin Mosque, Padang. In addition to food support, from benefactors and the mosque committee, the team also bought up chicken porridge sold by local traders to be distributed to the congregants.

The action was also appreciated by Buya Mardanius as the mosque administrator. "This is extraordinary. Apart from dealing with disasters and concerns abroad, ACT also takes care of our breakfast, Alhamdulillah," he said.

Togetherness was also seen at Babus Salam Mosque, Banjar Baru. After performing Fajr prayer, the community started the morning by having breakfast together carried out by ACT South Kalimantan on Friday (11/19/2021). “This activity really helps us in making a living. While waiting for the merchandise to be ready, I regularly perform Fajr prayer here,” said Juniarto, a congregant who is also a snack seller.

Hundreds of meal packages were distributed at each location that day. Apart from the areas mentioned above, the Safari Subuh Action will still continue in various regions in Indonesia.[]
