PINRANG – Entering the second week that began in early November 2019, the construction of madrasah (school) for muallaf or converts in Pinrang Village, Pinrang Regency, South Sulawesi has been 50 percent completed. This process is fairly fast thanks to the community’s mutual cooperation. They helped start with transporting sand or other building raw materials.
Currently, construction has entered the stage of making the floor and finishing the roof. The obstacle experienced by volunteers and the community is the weather conditions that have been erratic for several days, sometimes it rains accompanied by fog.
Dubbed as a village of converts, most of the residents of Pinrang Village, Pinrang Regency are converts. Rumah Zakat works together with Indosat ZIS to establish a madrasah as a religious facility for children and the community. Later religious studies will be led by da’i from Rumah Zakat to foster converts in this village.
