The activity was organized by the Muslim Students Association Alumni Corps (KAHMI) was attended by many national leaders such as Chairman of PPATK Yunus Husein, and the other KAHMI figures.

On the occasion, Mahfud MD asked to convey speech while waiting for iftar. In his speech, Mahfud MD said that fasting is intended only for people who believe so pious. Therefore, he said, the faithful are not necessarily pious, and faith that is alive to be careful.

Mahfud MD quoting the Prophet Muhammad answers when answering questions the definition of piety. According to the Prophet, fearing it is in the heart. "While the current definition of piety changed, that is running the commands of Allah and away from the ban. It does not exist at the time of the Prophet. The definition is only in modern times, "he explained.

To better understand the meaning of piety, Mahfud MD also told that at one time there are some friends who talk about the definition of piety? Companions, according to Mahfud MD, likens to a dark night someone was walking on a steep cliff that allows him to fall. "Then the friend asked: what are you doing? I will walk very carefully. And that god-fearing, "he explained.

Meanwhile, according to the Quran, said Mahfud MD, fearing it easy, that life is always careful, life is always counting. "What am I doing this right or not? And, all that will be realized and easy to do, if we do it in earnest, "he explained.

Mahfud MD stressed the importance of caution by saying that many people mired in life are not careful, many people whose lives are not quiet because his life was not careful. "Just imagine you have a high office, have a lot of money, but you do not calm down, everything is useless, it would be tasteless. Better we live mediocrity, than we are already doing is wrong, because it is not careful, "he said.

Those who do god-fearing, according to Mahfud MD, will not be afraid to do something, it will not be anxious in his life. "If we are devoted, God will send his angels so that we are not afraid of running something. So, who fear it will never be afraid, "he said. (Shohibul Umam / mh/Yazid.tr)
