“I hope that the society, parents, and everyone know that this school is currently building a mosque. Hopefully the mosque that we are building can be completed quickly, so that it can be used for the students to worship, and we will use it as a means of Islamic syiar and to support learning activities, “said Mastari.

In his speech, Bobby Manulang said that the construction of the Al Syukro Mosque would continue to be supervised by Dompet Dhuafa.

“I from Dompet Dhuafa will also continue to monitor the construction of this mosque, in syaa Allah, until it is completed,” said the GM of Dompet Dhuafa’s Donor and Retail Waqf Services.
