TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - President Joko Widodo or Jokowi is scheduled to perform the first tarawih prayer of Ramadan in Istiqlal Mosque. The mosque protocol head Abu Hurairah Abdul Salam confirmed the agenda.

“The place is ready,” said Abu, adding that Presidential Security Force (Paspampres) will maintain the security.

According to Abu, the mosque management only prepared the place and equipment which now have been ready. Meanwhile, the first sermon will be delivered by Minister of Religious Affairs Lukman Hakim Saifuddin.

As for the next sermons, Abu did not further mention the names. However, he asserted the theme will not contain political contents and certain party’s interest. “We selected the theme on how we could be united, on how we respect the difference, and on how we accept this Unitary State of the Republic of Indonesia (NKRI),” Abu added.

Aside from tarawih prayer and sermons, Istiqlal Mosque has a routine agenda which is mass fast-breaking dubbed “Istiqlal Beriftar”. Abu said, during Ramadan, the management will provide 4,000 boxes of foods for the visitors and that the funds were collected from public’s support as well as state and private institutions.
