First, every executive commitee should be close to Allah SWT (God Almighty). This should be implemented by doing compulsory activities such as shalat fardhu (compulsory prayer) and in-the-middle-of-the-night prayer (tahajud). This is very important for spiritual strengthening. Second, every executive committee should increase knowledge. Third, every executive committee should build network and cooperation with any group for the improvement of ummah and country.
