بسْمِ اللهِ الرّحْمن الرَحِيْمِ الْحَمْدُللهِ رَبِ الْعَالَمِيْن الَصّلاَةُ وَالسّلاَمُ عَلى اَشْرَفِ الأَنبيَاءِ وَالْمُرْسَلِيْن اِمَامِ الْمُتقِيْن سَيّدِناَ وَمَوْلاَناَ مُحَمّدٍ وَعَلى اله وَ صَحْبه اَجْمَعِيْن أشْهَدُ أن لاَاِلهَ اِلاّ اللهُ وَحْدَه لاَ شَرِيْكَ لَه وَاَشْهَدُ أن مُحَمّدًا عَبْدُه وَرَسُوْلُه . وَبَعْدُ.
The first, let’s we all thank to Allah, praise and adoration only for Allah SWT, for at this moment, we are still given chance to live, to do our best, to interact among us, and to gather here. Not to be forgotten, shalawat and salam to our prophet Muhammad SAW, who has led us to the truth, the bright way, and to the piece, Islam. And also I’d like to thank to master of ceremony who has given me chance to speak here in front of you all today on the title: “THE YOUNG GENERATION AND MORAL CRISIS”.
My beloved brothers and sisters. As a matter of fact, when we talk about the development of a nation, in its past, present, and in the future, one thing that must be mentioned is the role of the youth generation.
Why is it so? Because the youth has fresh brain, great physical power, high creativity and mobility. So, by those potential, the youth can learn more and do many good things better. Also, they are hoped able to solve many problems occur in their surroundings. They are the hope of nation who will carry out the struggle for the sake of brighter future of this country, they are the hope of Islamic religion who will strive for the sake of Islamic teaching in the next, and who will be leaders for the next. It was yelled as:
شُبّاَن الْيَوْمِ رِجَالُ الْغَدِ
”Today is young tomorrow will be a leaders.”
My beloved brothers and sisters. This statement encourages us to pay attention to the young’s existence of the future. The youths supposedly symbolize the force that never become weak quickly.
However, a sad view is right before our eyes. We see in the television, we read in the news paper, or we hear in the radio. Many of our young generation are influenced by the bad culture. They waste their times, without thinking of their nation’s, without thinking their own future. It’s so terrible knowing that the number of drug is very high. It seems that they don’t understand about the result, that the drugs can ruin their bright future.
Other young generation, even they don’t consume the narcotics, even they don’t consume the drugs, they waste their times in discotheques, have free sex between them, or have dangerous fun by driving their motorbikes wildly on the street. Still others, who don’t do those bad things, waste their times by watching TV or other shows too much. They forget their time for study. They don’t study hard and don’t do homework. So, if there is a test, cheating will be their choice.
Then, what can we hope from such generation? If, even only half of our young generation do not aware of this situation, don’t ever hope we will have free and prosperous country. Never it will happen!
So Audiences, right this moment I should like to call all of you, to call all of our young generations in this place to awake from our long dreams. It’s time to stand right, to cast aside the laziness, the doubts, the stupidity. Let’s build our close relation, our pure brotherhood, it’s time to use our brain, to use our energy, and our creativity, our spirit to learn and study harder, and to work our plans better. We have to be aware that the responsibility of nation developing and religion establishing depend on us. So, let’s do our plans now, let’s prepare our selves for the next. But, of course, without forgetting the great, the holy and precious teaching of our religion. Because all of the potential would mean nothing without being faith to Allah SWT and Islamic rules.
My beloved brothers and sisters. One thing that we should pay attention too, let’s offer our hands, our help to our brothers and sisters who don’t have clear view of the future. Let’s help them, because Allah says in the holy al Qur’an, Sura Al Maidah, verse 2 :
وَتعاَوَنوْا عَلى الْبرّ وَالتقْوى
“You have to offer your helf for goodness and obedience.”
And Allah says also in the sura al Ashri, verse 3:
وَتوَاصَوْا بالْحَقّ وَتوَاصَوْا بالصّبْرِ
“You should advice each other for the truth and you should advice each other to patient.”
And our prophet Muhammad SAW said:
المُسْلِمُ مَن سَلِمَ الْمُسْلِمُوْن مِنْ لِسَانِه وَيدِه
“A Moslem in one from whose hand and tongue the other Moslems are safe.”
My beloved brothers and sisters, once again, I should like to call you to help our brothers and sisters who don’t have clear view of the future. Let’s make them realize that the fun they get from discotheques, that the fun they get from drug, from narcotics, or other bad activities are not real ant that those are dangerous.
Let’s wake up, let’s prepare our selves, let’s do our plans for the next. Let’s join hand in hand to use our times, and chances, to make this country better, get out of this terrible crisis, and to make this country become an independent and great country with high dignity and to reach the bright future.
بَلْدَةٌ طَيِّبَةٌ وَرَبٌّ غَفُوْرٌ
My beloved brothers and sisters.
I think this is my speech today and if you find a lot of mistakes I beg your pardon, because the wrong utterance is caused by limitation of my ability and the right is from Allah SWT. And finally I say you….السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته
