Yogyakarta- A lot of Muslims do not manage to apply the exercise done during fasting month (Ramadhan). They fail to keep the glorious values of Ramadhan not only after the Holy month but also during Eid-al-Fitr.

That was stated by General Chairman of Central Executive of Muhamammadiyah, Din Syamsuddin, during Syawalan Tausyiah (Advice given in Syawwal Month) and Mangayubagyo (celebration) for a group of pilgrims to Mecca of UMY Big Family at UMY Sportorium (sport hall and auditorium) on Monday (05/09/2011). Din reminded people that Syawal was an improvement month that should be utilized well to increase self-quality especially in discipline.

“Ramadhan teaches us to be disciplined, especially time discipline for fasting break and imsyak (the later part of night when fasting begins). In this Syawal, we should be able to increase our discipline. Let's erase our 'rubber time' title that has been sticked on us so long," said Din Syamsuddin.
