ITS Campus, ITS News – In the series of the 61st Anniversary, which coincided with the commemoration of the Birthday of the Prophet Muhammad, the Institut Teknologi Sepuluh November (ITS) held the Kiai Kanjeng Online Performance with Emha Ainun Najib or better known as Cak Nun. This performance was born online and broadcast lives on ITS TV Youtube, Tuesday (19/10) night.
At this performance, Cak Nun, the founder of the Maiyah congregation, was present accompanied by his son, Sabrang Mowo Damar Panuluh, who is also the vocalist of Letto’s band often participates in Maiyah studies.
Opened by Prof. Ir Muhammad Sigit Darmawan MEngSc Ph.D., Chairman of the 61st Anniversary of ITS, said that this show took the theme Maiyah Advancing Humanity. Through the 61st Anniversary, ITS is optimistic that it will contribute to advancing the Indonesian nation. “By the words of the Prophet Muhammad, the best of humans are those who are most beneficial to others,” said the Dean of the Vocational Faculty, who is familiarly called Sigit.
In line with Sigit, ITS Vice-Chancellor I for Academic and Student Affairs Prof. Dr. Ir Adi Soeprijanto MT explained that students would be perfect if they had a healthy body, brilliant brain, and soft heart. ITS does not want students to lose the value of gentleness. “The Kiai Kanjeng Online performance is ITS’s commitment to sharpening the softness of students’ hearts,” said the Professor of Electrical Engineering.
Meanwhile, Cak Nun said, Maiyah means the value of togetherness in love and longing for Allah SWT and the Messenger of Allah, while Advancing Humanity means that ITS is a part to help improve the welfare of humanity. “This proves that ITS is not only an institute that focuses on technology,” said this humanist.
Furthermore, Sabrang Mowo Damar Panuluh, commonly known as Noe, emphasized that Advancing Humanity is not just advancing human civilization. However, ITS also implements the grace that God has given in science and technology so that it can prosper the community. “With technology, ITS provides an opportunity for humans to find their identity,” he said.
The Kiai Kanjeng Online performance, broadcast live through the ITS TV YouTube channel, has also been watched by more than 8,200 people. In addition to discussion and study sessions, this event was also filled with praying together to welcome the birth of the Prophet Muhammad SAW.
In closing the event, Cak Nun advised ITS to become a forum for developing humanity, servanthood, and caliphate. “ITS as a reinforcement of fellow human beings must also strengthen itself,” said the author of the book Orang Maiyah. (ITS Public Relation)
