He also stated that the evening anniversary was the stepping stone of the milestone for the Muhammadiyah and Aisyiyah congress in Makassar on August 2015. The future challenges faced by Muhammadiyah were getting bigger, from both domestic and abroad. However, it should encourage Muhammadiyah to strengthen the persistence as a missionary organization and to be ready facing the challenges. “And Alhamdulillah, during the time, Muhammadiyah as an organization of straightening missionary displays the gratifying development. And, we have to be grateful for that,” he uttered.

Din hoped that the congress held in Makassar would run well.

This should be our commitment. No matter what happens to this country, Muhammadiyah will not lose the hope and orientation to remain to be missionary organization to foster the religion, this nation, and this country,” he conveyed.
