Chairman of Jamiyatul Islamiyah visited Japan and Islamize some people there. Similarly, in some other countries.
Dr.KH.Aswin Rose Yusuf declared honored invited by the Rector of UMI as a speaker at UMI. He said why the Prophet was sent to enhance akhlaqul kharimah? Why did God not directly improve human morality? Because the essence is, the human soul was dark. Only with instructions of Prophet and Messenger so that the mind become bright, and that which dwells in the man’s chest, so they exalted, as Allah says: Inna akrmakum indallaahi athqaakum (the noblest side of God is the most taqwa).
He stated that human beings are not perfect, then for the human perfection is blown the spirit. There is no meaning of human without a soul. The man who think, feel and act with the senses. It also said if the man is sick, not the doctor who heals but Allah.
Also questioned why the Prophet Muhammad was given the title “Saw”? Not “as” (peace be upon him)? Because of the Prophet Muhammad as a witness to the servant who worships to Allah SWT. It is because the people who participated in the teachings of the Messanger would participate to Allah SWT. Therefore, God enhances human morality. Especially the presence of Islam to elevate the degree of women. Without woman, a person cannot flourish and will never become a man of God. Human conscience is subject to the religion brought by Prophet Muhammad. Therefore, keep the heart, all the wars, sourced from within the human heart. Even people are getting smarter increasingly, but they forgot about themselves.
“Who Allahu Akbar? Prayer iftitah is the answer. He created the world and the heavens. That is the need to commemorate Maulud Rasul to be able to remember the Prophet Muhammad SAW that granted favors emanated from the truth,” he said.
