BONSERNEWS.com – Chairman of Commission VIII DPR, Ashabul Kahfi, asked the public to promote tolerance in responding to differences in the determination of Eid al-Adha between the government and Muhammadiyah.
Ashabul emphasized that the difference in calculations in determining Eid al-Adha should not cause divisions. He also hopes that the public will not be easily provoked by intolerant narratives that are prone to appear on social media.
“The differences in calculations and approaches taken should not divide us, but must reconcile and familiarize us all. It is hoped that all parties will not be provoked by endless differences on social media,” said Ashabul Kahfi, Monday 19 June 2023.

He said that misleading information often circulates on social media. For this reason, he continued, the public should immediately check accurate information from trusted sources of authority such as the Ministry of Religion and Islamic mass organizations.
“If there is something you want to know accurately, please ask the main source, you can go to the Ministry of Religion, you can also go to Islamic religious organizations such as the Indonesian Ulema Council, Nahdlatul Ulama, Muhammadiyah, and others,” he advised.

It is known that the Government officially implemented 1 Zulhijah 1444 Hijriah/2023 AD to fall on Tuesday (20/6) 2023, thus Eid al-Adha falls on Thursday (29/6/2023), after it was decided through an isbat meeting today, Sunday ( 18/6/2023).
“The reckoning is above the horizon but does not meet the criteria of the Minister of Religion of Brunei, Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore (MABIMS) and the new moon report is also not visible. By consensus, 1 Zulhijah falls on Tuesday, June 20, 2023 AD, “said Deputy Minister of Religion Zainut Tauhid Sa’adi during a press conference on the initial determination of Zulhijah 1444 H.
With the stipulation of Eid al-Adha on Thursday (29/6 2023), there is a difference with Muhammadiyah’s Central Executive (PP) which stipulates that Eid al-Adha 1444 H falls on Wednesday (28/6/2023).
PP Muhammadiyah’s decision was contained in the Notice of the Muhammadiyah Central Leadership Number 1/MLM/I.0/E/2023 Concerning the Determination of the Reckoning Results of Ramadhan, Shawwal, and Zulhijah 1444 H. ()
