STIE Perbanas Gives Zakat Mal to Hundreds of Orphans and Duafa Surabaya
The moment of Ramadan has been used by various agencies to achieve blessing, as is STIE Perbanas Surabaya. Exactly on Thursday, May 23, 2019, the Best Business and Banking Campus in Indonesia celebrated the blessing of Ramadhan 1440 H with Surabaya Orphans and Duafa People. With the theme "Increase Gratitude in the Month of Ramadan" this event began with Khataman Al-Qur'an which was attended by lecturers and local employees.
Located at Campus 1 Auditorium Jl. Nginden Semolo 34-36 Surabaya, there are at least 220 orphans and you duafa. The orphanage foundations included: Hidayatush Shibyan Jangkungan Foundation, Al Hidayah Foundation, Cahaya Umat Madani Foundation, Banuru Qoiyah Islamic Boarding School Foundation, and Hidayah Umat Foundation. In addition, the duafa came from residents around the campus in the Nginden Semolo and Wonorejo areas.

Chairperson of STIE Perbanas Surabaya, Dr. Yudi Sutarso, S.E., M.Sc., said that the best step to support an orphan is to be his parents. However, for now STIE Perbanas Surabaya still wants to help by giving zakat mal. This is a routine activity held every year in the month of Ramadan.
On this occasion, he also hoped that the spirit in Ramadhan could be a spirit in managing organizations, especially STIE Perbanas Surabaya. The spirit he meant, such as the spirit of doing good, contributing to others, steadfast in facing challenges, being independent, and the spirit to build institutions better.
"The atmosphere of the fasting month is very good to improve the quality of worship to Allah SWT. Therefore, with the spirit of Ramadhan, he hopes to be able to advance and improve the quality of the STIE Perbanas Surabaya campus, "hoped Dr. Yudi Sutarso, S.E., M.Sc.
While waiting for the time to break the fast together, all who attended also attended tausiyah delivered by Ustadz Ahmad Habibul Muis, Lc., MA. On this occasion, he invited all people to always increase gratitude to Allah SWT. "There are three ways to be grateful, namely gratitude with the heart, thanksgiving with oral, and thankful for charity," he explained.
He also asserted, everything that belongs to God is from Allah, so we must obey His commands. "The assets, power, and knowledge are actually used because they expect the love of Allah. Power is used to defend truth, wealth is used to help others in need, and knowledge is used to guide others to get closer to the truth, "he explained.
