He also stressed the importance of producing good quality students who will continue the work of the clerics from the previous generations.
“The Islamic boarding schools are the training ground for the students to understand the religion as many senior Muslim clerics have passed away,” said the vice president, who is also a former chairman of the Indonesian Ulema Council.
He told the participants to make the Islamic boarding schools the center of the preaching of Islam that is relevant to the times by using digital technology. By doing so, he said, their instruction will have a farther reach from anywhere at any time.
