Undip held the Isha and Tarawih prayers at the Imam Bardjo Auditorium, Pleburan Campus, Tuesday (7/5) night.

The Rector, Prof. Dr. Yos Johan Utama, on that occasion, encouraged his Undip academic community to maintain their commitment to useful activities in the holy month of Ramadhan so that we would gain wisdom from Ramadhan and at the end of Ramadhan we would become a better person “he said.

A Professor of Fiqh from UIN, Prof.Dr. Muhibin, explained that the reason why many people who have fasted yet they did not get any reward from his fast is because they ignored the signs from the apostle.

“Fasting is not just about carrying mere obligations but we also find meaning and wisdom from fasting. Ramadan encourages us to be more active in congregational activities, especially fardhu and tarawih prayers, encouraging empathy for people with difficulties by increasing shodaqah, infaq and zakat. That way our behavior becomes more commendable, “he said.
