Jakarta (ANTARA) – President Joko Widodo (Jokowi) handed over sacrificial animals to the Baiturrahman Mosque, Semarang City, Monday.

The President handed over a simental cow weighing around 1,250 kilograms to the Baiturrahman Mosque sacrificial committee for Eid al-Adha 1445 H, according to a written statement from the Press Bureau of the Presidential Secretariat.

“I hereby hand over our sacrificial animal in the form of a cow to the Eid al-Adha organizing committee at the Baiturrahman Grand Mosque in Semarang, as our family sacrifice, to be slaughtered and the meat distributed to those who are entitled to it.” “May Allah accept this worship,” said Jokowi.

Previously, President Jokowi and First Lady Iriana held Eid al-Adha prayers at Simpang Lima Square, Semarang, not far from the Baiturrahman Mosque.

President Jokowi and his entourage arrived at the location at around 06.05 local time.

At 18.25 WIB the Eid al-Adha prayer began, led by Imam KH Zaenuri Ahmad Al Hafiz, Head of the Nurul Qur’ani Islamic Boarding School, Semarang.

After the prayer, President Jokowi listened to a sermon delivered by khatib Hasyim Asy’ari who is also the Chair of the Indonesian KPU. The sermon delivered had the theme “Sacrifice as a Test of Faith.”

In his sermon, Asy’ari said that Eid al-Adha is rooted in the story of Prophet Ibrahim AS and Prophet Ismail AS.

At that time, Allah had ordered the Prophet Ibrahim to make a sacrifice by slaughtering his only biological son, Ismail. With his obedience, Prophet Ibrahim was willing to obey that order.

“We should emulate and follow the sacrifices of the Prophets Ibrahim and Ismail, in the sense that with the abilities we have, we are willing to obey and obey the commands of Allah SWT by sacrificing some of the wealth we have,” reminded Asy’ari.

“If on Eid al-Fitr we make other people happy with zakat, then on Eid al-Adha we make other people happy with sacrificial worship,” he said.

On this occasion, Minister of Public Works and Public Housing Basuki Hadimuljono, Acting Governor of Central Java Nana Sudjana, Pangdam IV/Diponegoro Major General Deddy Suryadi, Central Java Regional Police Chief Inspector General Ahmad Luthfi, and Mayor of Semarang Hevearita Gunarti Rahayu also accompanied the President. Jokowi and First Lady Iriana.
