Drs. Sudirman also stressed to always charitable pious and do good things because we don’t know when our death. “While there is age, do not delay to do good things. Especially, in this Ramadan month, god promised to multiply all sorts of goodness in Ramadan. For example, charitable of people who was fasting in Ramadan is equivalent reward to charity in the way of Allah (fiisabilillah). Moreover, then joined with six days of fasting in the month of Shawwal. According to the hadist narrated by Muslim, whoever fasts Ramadan then fast six days in Shawwal, then like he is fasting for a full year. Because we do not know when the time comes, then never stop pious and do good deeds. Even angels just do not know, because actually it is the prerogative of the death of Allah SWT. It is our duty as His people to take advantage of our age in the world this short, “he explained.
