Entitled "The Role of Islamic Students in Globalization Era'
Praise is to Allah, the lord of the world, and the sequel is for those who keep their duty unto him. Further, there will be no hostility except against wrongdoers.
Blessing and salutation upon the most honorable prophet and messenger, his families, all his disciples, and those who follow them in goodness till the any of judgment.
In this good chance, I would like to deliver my speech by title;
Globalization gives not only positive effects of the rapid science, information and technology development but also brings about many religion and culture principle divergences of the nation. Those become the cause of a drop in autonomy and identity of the nation.
Happy brothers and sisters!
Let’s pay attention more what happens in our surroundings at present! Free sex, pornography, alcoholic drink and drugs become youth customs in this country. Most of them always imitate what becomes “up to date” without filtering and thinking before. And they never make balance between thought and desire, planning and implementation and between ability and action. In addition, they do not preserve the Islamic laws because they think that religion is the symbol only whereas, youth is the generation next of this country. So how this country’s future is if most of them get a drop in their moral values?.
Consequently, we are the next generation of this country; we have to keep ourselves by faith, beliefs and piety in facing the globalization era. And we have to be aware of conserving the Islamic laws. Moreover we are the Islamic students have obligation to fight against the weakness of our beloved nation.
Moslem brothers and sisters!
We should not keep silent when we know the negative changes that happen in our society because of globalization era. As Islamic students we ought to become figures in anticipating the negative effects of this global era.
Allah state in the noble Quran; (Waltakum minkum ummatan yad’una ilal khoiri wa ya’muruna bil ma’rufi wa yanhauna ‘anil munkar, wa ulaaika humul muflihuun)
Meaning: let there arise out of you a group of people inviting to all that is good, enjoining alma’ruf and forbidding almunkar and those who are the successful man.
Dear brothers and sisters!
The Islamic students with their moral forces and Islamic studies must be proactive to guide what is and what globalization era is for and the purpose of it. So that, let’s hope for the best. They become the public figures and they can color the social and cultural lives of their society in achieving the goal. That’s good Moslem is a good country.
Happy brothers and sisters!
As the generation next we should;
- take the positive effects of globalization era only,
- raise our taqwa and realize our religious doctrine in our daily lives,
- become good figures for the society in facing globalization, information and communication technology
That's all my speech. Thank you for your attention
