Youth Generation That Brings Alteration

Assalamu’alaikum wr.wb
With all due the respect to the honorable Mr. Principal, to the honorable juri, to honorable Mr. and Mrs.
Teachers as well as to the dearest friends.
First of all, let’s say our praise and gratitude only to Allah Swt due to His grace and blessings upon us so that on
this good time and occasion we all can still gather in this place in the best of our health.
Ladies, gentlemen, and friends that I love,

As ther spirit of the Islamic New Year that Hijriyah-hijrah- is the spirit of change to have better manner from
the previous one.

Youth is a figure that always brings alterations. Alteration in life order of some era is quite influenced by the
role of youths. In 1982, youths gathered altogether and then took the pledge in order to tighten the unity of
Indonesia. This pledge was known as Youth Pledge. All youths from all over Indonesia from various ethnics,
cultures, languages, and regions strove for retaking the independence of nation altogether.

Who doesn’t know Mr. Soekarno, our first president of Indonesia? Nobody doubted him in each of his speech to
encourage the youths in maintaining the independence of Indonesia. The long journey of Indonesia to the
national independence shows us how great the influence was regarding our nation’s life. And then as the youth
Muslim generation, what have we contributed to society, nation, religion, and especially our own selves? Have
we given any alteration?

A Muslim youth should go on with positive alterations day after day in his or her life. How a loss if a Muslim
youth is seen to be worse than yesterday. The success of a youth in dealing with a number of life handicaps
along with the good alterations will be the basic in how he or she brings alterations to his or her surroundings
and those that are bigger than that.
To all of my companions that I proud of,
Dr. Yusuf Qardhawi said that there are three things that underlie a youth as a foundation of alteration;
1. Youths come with brilliant brain
2. Youths have strong physicals
3. Youths behave objectively
From the three points above, we can come to the conclusion that to bring the balance of physical alterations,
youths also need to take into consider of three things that underlie spiritual alterations:
1. Youths need to have strong faith
2. Youth need to be always istiqamah in performing any religious services and duties
3. Youths have good manners or akhlak khasanah

Ladies, gentlemen, and all the companions blessed by Allah

It’s about the time for Muslim youths to rise up for creating alterations in every line of life and keeping as well
as maintaining the self-image of Islam. Moreover, Islam has been being besieged from all over the directions.
We need to increase our knowledge about Islam by reading various books. Not only Islamic books but also
those books whose contents sometimes offense the world of Islam. Thus, youth generations can have the
provisions to become the agents of alteration.
Make our youth as the time that’s full of benefits and all the good things before the coming of old age, when all
of our spirits would fade away. What are we waiting for, if we can do the alteration now? Use our youth times
to become the part of Islam’s awakening history in Indonesia.
That’s all I could say. I wish we can meet again someday. Please forgive me for the mistakes on my words.
Thanks for the attention.

Wassalamu’alaikum. Wr.wb
