In his speech, Kyai Hasan delivered some advice to the audiences. For instance, it is expected that Darusalam Gontor Modern Islamic Institution is able to obtain more acknowledgments and trusts from community through this orientation week. “It should be ‘the more frequent you attend Khutbatu-l ‘Arsy, the more trusts community put to us. Not the opposite!.” said Kyai Hasan.
“It does not mean that if something is correct outside, it is also correct here. It does not mean that if something is successful outside, it will be successful here. No intervention here! Very good is very fine, if you do not follow us, feel free to leave!”, a little advice from Kyai Hasan.
