On 2nd October 2016, BNI Syariah recently held the ‘Amazing Muharam’ event in Jakarta in partnership with the Hasanah Titik Foundation as well as the Gerakan Cinta Quran organisation. The event sought to provide assistance for 10,000 individuals in which BNI Syariah and its partners offered educational resources to hone in on the ability to read the Quran. President Director of BNI Syariah Mr Imam Teguh Saptono, BNI Syariah’s Corporate Secretary Ms Endang Rosawati in addition to Islamic scholars Mr Abu Makki, Mr Fatih Karim, and local artist Mr Derry DSAS were present at the event.
BNI Syariah took into account the national illiteracy rate for the Quran of 53.5% to develop the programme agenda and thus carried out its initiative throughout 15 cities across Indonesia. As such, Mr Imam Teguh Saptono hopes that BNI Syariah’s community empowerment effort encourages participants to utilise the teachings stated in the Quran to lead a hasanah lifestyle. Moreover, during the event BNI Syariah provided 400 million IDR from the company’s zakat funds towards wide-ranging organisations in Indonesia whose initiatives are to promote effective learning methods that would sharpen the capability to read the Quran.
As a leading shariah-compliant banking institution Indonesia, BNI Syariah continues to demonstrate a high level of eagerness to support educational as well as community development programmes. Hence through the most recent ‘Amazing Muharam’ event, BNI Syariah showcased its industry strength of maintaining its corporate social responsibilities.
