He advised students to study and work hard to deepen religious knowledge. However, he reminded the students to strengthen their general knowledge as well.
“I advise these students of Al Muqmin to keep learning, to never give up working hard to excel. Study religious knowledge as deeply as you can, but also remember to explore the common sense that our disposition is very important. This world lives on,” he said.
