Indonesia Presidential Election



The 2019 presidential election in Indonesia will be held on April 17, 2019. The two candidates are the incumbent H. Joko Widodo and Rtd. Gen. Prabowo Subianto .

According to the factual situation the incumbent president Joko Widodo has ruled and lead the country since 2014 and made many achievements. He has conducted the building of many important infrastructures which are considered very important as the basis of the future people’s life. He paid also very much attention to the Islamic organisations and has appointed the chief Moslem organisation Ma’ruf Amin as his will-be vice-president.

According to Al-Albani :

The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “The believer is friendly and befriended, for there is no goodness in one who is neither friendly, nor befriended. The best of people are those who are most beneficial to people.

عَنْ جَابِرٍ قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ الْمُؤْمِنُ يَأْلَفُ وَيُؤْلَفُ وَلا خَيْرَ فِيمَنْ لا يَأْلَفُ وَلا يُؤْلَفُ وَخَيْرُ النَّاسِ أَنْفَعُهُمْ لِلنَّاسِ

H. Joko Widodo has done many useful projects for Indonesian People.

Meanwhile Prabowo Subianto has shown very emotional attitude, tolerance to corruption and delivery of dangerous hoax. This means that the candidate has been a wrong-doer ! According to Al Baqara 124, people must NOT CHOOSE the wrong-doer in the election !

Those who choose the wrong-doer confront Allah and definitely conduct sinful behaviour!

According to Al Baqara 124 :


And [mention, O Muhammad], when Abraham was tried by his Lord with commands and he fulfilled them. [ Allah ] said, “Indeed, I will make you a leader for the people.” [Abraham] said, “And of my descendants?” [ Allah ] said, “My covenant does not include the wrongdoers.”
