Bekasi, MINA – The Chairman of Aqsa Working Group (AWG) Agus Sudarmaji said that the world’s Islamic clerics missed the unity of ummah.

“Recently, I met a Nigerian cleric, Ustaz Abdul Malik, who asked me to come to Nigeria, South Africa, to deliver a complete, kaffah (whole) Islam, according to Allah’s orders,” Agus said as a speaker at the monthly lecture Jama’ah Muslimin (Hizbullah) Bekasi, West Java, Sunday.

In front of hundreds of worshipers in Baitul Muttaqien Mosque, he referred to Al-Baqarah verse 208, Al-Quran, which means, “Oh you who believe, enter you into the whole Islam, and do not obey the steps of Satan. Truly Satan is your real enemy. ”


According to him, scholars in various parts of the world longed for unity, including in Indonesia. However, Agus said that when asked how they were manifested, they differed from one another to the point of view, giving an explanation, even though the instructions for how to implement were already clear and clear.

Agus again refers to Al-Quran surah An-Nisaa verse 59.

“It must not be in other ways such as organizations, political parties, NGOs, foundations and so on, but in a way that has been outlined by Lord, namely by joining together (united under one leadership),” Agus said in his lecture.
