Salam 'alaikum peeps!
I just watched a very highly recommended movie named "Mama Cake" last nite. A film directed by one of my friends & also one of the #IndonesiaTanpaJIL 's activists - Anggy Umbara. The scenes are still rewinding in my head. This movie gave lots of "jlebh" moments for me. Well, I won't say much in here. Will write the whole review in my next entry :p
Anyway, last Sunday Sept 9th, all #IndonesiaTanpaJIL supporters from Jabodetabek + Bandung attended a Halal Bihalal event, along with an establishment of ITJ's new secretariat. And this is what's interesting. Our new secretariat is located at 68B, Utan Kayu. Yes, our office now is precisely across JIL's office - 68H Utan Kayu. Isn't nice, or nice, yes? :D
So the Halal bihalal started at 1 pm. Fauzi Baadilla was the host because yeah, the house is actually his house. But he bequests the house to be ITJ's secretariat. Barakallahu Fiik, Bang Oji. May Allah always grant you with lots of blessings, aamiin...
Some coordinators gave speech as the opening; Galih, Gatot, Japra & Bang Oji. Then Kang Hafidz Ary gave another spirit-lifting speech and after that Ust. Herry Nurdin gave a breezy enlightening tausyiah for about more than a 100 attendees that day. The special thing was that Bapak Taufik Ismail [An Indonesian writer & poet] gave a very amazing poem about Liberalism in Islam & how he supports fully to our movement #IndonesiaTanpaJIL. I felt so moved by his reading, so touchy :')
The last person to give speech is no other than Uda Akmal Sjafril, the writer of a best-seller book named "Islam Liberal 101". Then we continued the silaturahmi with playing several ITJ movement videos from the beginning till now. We closed the first session with praying together.
After Ashar pray, we gathered separately between the guys and the girls to have the greeting session, in where each of the attendee gave his/her introduction about their names, jobs, ages, places, etc. The gathering finished 30 minutes before Maghrib time. We cleaned up all trashes & put everything back to where they were. Then everybody went home, learned & satisfied :)
I hope this event is another big stepping stone for #IndonesiaTanpaJIL movement to spread its wings wider & embrace more people to help them realize how dangerous JIL is. We hope ITJ could widen up our ukhuwah all across the country & abroad.
The next agenda to do is SILATNAS [Silaturahmi Nasional] #IndonesiaTanpaJIL which we have been preparing now. According to the plan, it will be done on mid October at Lembang - Bandung. We will soon follow the updated news up to you & of course this event is open for everybody... Everybody who doesn't want the deen of Islam destroyed by those liberal rapists!
Meanwhile, enjoy the pics I upload below. Salam ukhuwah. Salam #IndonesiaTanpaJIL ;)
