ITS Campus, ITS News – To further develop the quality of new students (maba) this year, the Institut Teknologi Sepuluh November (ITS) again held a Spiritual and Nationality Training (PSB) for four consecutive days, starting from 1 to 4 August.

The cleric, often called TGB, said in front of 1,300 ITS new students that religious moderation is essential for the first day, but efforts need to be made to implement it. Moreover, these new students come from various backgrounds. “So it is necessary to understand how to handle something according to its place,” he reminded.
Therefore, added TGB, this is where the importance of a good and correct religious moderation position. According to the former Governor of West Nusa Tenggara (NTB), moderation or a moderate person is the attitude of people who handle everything proportionally. In this case, what is meant by proportionality is that it must be based on fair and balanced principles by its background.
The three forms of moderation emphasized by TGB include Muamalah, human relations, or hablum minannas. This form has social links, technology, economy, and so on. In this form, the relationship must be developed by the Human Rights principles (HAM) and the 1945 Constitution. “So being an excellent student is one of the applications of religious moderation,” he said.
Then, there is also a form of Akidah, namely, believing in the pillars of faith in Islam. Akidah itself is a teaching foundation that serves to save a person from deviant beliefs. Finally, there is the form of Worship; TGB said that this form could not be changed or developed, and this is because it includes established principles as well as prayer.
This master’s graduate from Al-Azhar University, Egypt, said that with the vast diversity in Indonesia, extra effort is needed in implementing religious moderation. This can be realized if carried out with maximum and optimal enthusiasm and effort. TGB explained there are differences when implementing it optimally and maximally. “The maximum is when oriented to results, while optimal is when the process,” he said.
Furthermore, TGB stated that Islam is a religion that builds, not destroys. Implementing religious moderation is the first step in instilling a commitment to become a person of character and intellect. “Keep the priority to give goodness to the surrounding environment,” he motivated.
