In his remarks, the Chief of Staff of the Indonesian Navy (KASAL) Admiral TNI Muhammad Ali said that the month of Ramadan is a special month for Muslims around the world, where good deeds in this month will receive multiple rewards.

“I invite all of us to increase worship as a form of self-approach to Allah,” he said.

One of them, according to KASAL, is through the BAZNAS EXPRESS program which is a breakthrough from the Indonesian Navy and BAZNAS in the month of Ramadan.

The aim is to introduce young people to the importance of religious knowledge including tithes, through various activities such as social services on Pramuka Island, lectures, and recitations on religious themes, deradicalization, and national defense.
