Teladan dari Khalifah Abu Bakar

Pidato Abu Bakar sewaktu baru diangkat menjadi Khalifah yang pertama,

All praise be to God who has guided us to this.
We would be bereft of guidance unless He has guided us.
O’ you people, I have been chose to lead you, and I am not the best among you.
If I do well, help me; and if I do wrong, correct me.
Truth is a trust and lying is a breach of trust.
The weak among you are strong in my sight until I have ensured that they have their rights.
The strong among you are weak in my sight until I have ensured right and justice.
Obey me as long as I obey God and His Messenger.
If I disobey them, I forfeit all claim to your obedience.
Now rise to offer your prayers. May God bestow mercy on you all.

Kedua, Umar bin Khattab, musuh Islam yang sangat ditakuti selama 6-7 tahun terakhir, mendatangi Nabi dan juga dengan sadar dan tanpa paksaan menyatakan keislamannya.

Awakening the Indonesian Youth

It has been proven that a cornerstone waking up national resurgence was built by the youth of Indonesian. While the struggle of the older generation in the Dutch-colonialization era tend to be confined in local mindset, the youth came up with the idea that such method never achieve a goal to deprive the Dutch from the land of Indonesia. Of course in that time their idea was deemed too extreme since no one before ever came out with such idea, but, in that time the elder’s cynicism could also be understood, their hypothesis was logical, if we had not ever succedded of outpowering the Dutch in each of our every local area, how could we gain win over them in the entire archiplelago of Indonesia?
