MENTAWAI. This is the routine of Iis Wandi, Empowered Village Facilitator of Rumah Zakat in Sikakap Village, Mentawai, Monday (10/09).
He escorted his foster children ‘Anak Juara’ from the Dormitory to the Madrasah which was 4 KM away by using a vehicle that he had modified specifically to be able to carry passengers.
In empowering his village, Iis also taught and fostered 50 children in Rumah Quran Darul Ulum Sikakap, starting from memorizing activities, murajaah and reciting quran memorization.
“Alhamdulillah, there are already 15 students who have memorize 5 Juz of Quran, especially those at the junior high school level and Aliyah. Hopefully they will remain Istiqamah in Tahfidz’s activities, even though both of their parents are far in the interior of the Mentawai island and there are still many who are Muslim convert, “said Iis.
“Thank you the donators of Rumah Zakat for the support for the generations of Mentawai, hopefully they will be the successors of the da’wah in the Mentawai Islands,” he concluded.
