Makassar-The Chiarman of Public Empowering Council (MPM) Muhammadiyah Sulawesi Selatan (Sulsel), Husni Yunus saw of 100 Mubalighs (preachers) for forest empowerment to do dakwah (teaching) in the forest side. They had been trained by the Ministry of Forestry in Makassar at the campus of Muhammadiyah University of Makassar on Saturday ( 03/12/2011).
Husni Yunus says that the task has a noble value since the mubalighs not only try to improve the quality of life for people but also teach religion to build strong ummah's economy. “So far, dakwah done by reciting Al Qur'an related to patience in facing poverty without real solution should be left. Such dakwah cannot give additioal value for people living near the forest," he said.
What mubalighs must do is building special education on integrated agriculture, farming, and fishing, so people can improve their economy significantly. They will no longer think the eating problem. They will think how to improve their life for God. The Chairman of MPM Muhammadiyah Gowa was also present during the farewell event.
