The President handed over a simental cow, weighing approximately 1,250 kilograms, to the sacrificial committee of Baiturrahman Mosque for Eid al-Adha 1445 AH, according to a written statement from the press office of the Presidential Secretariat.

“I hereby hand over our sacrificial animal in the form of a cow to the Eid al-Adha organizing committee at the Baiturrahman Grand Mosque in Semarang, as a sacrificial service of our family, to be slaughtered and distribute the meat to those who are entitled to it. May Allah accept this worship,” Jokowi remarked.

Earlier, President Jokowi and First Lady Iriana held Eid al-Adha prayers at Simpang Lima Square, Semarang, not far from Baiturrahman Mosque.

At 6:25 p.m. local time, the Eid al-Adha prayer began, led by Imam KH Zaenuri Ahmad Al Hafiz, caretaker of the Nurul Qur'ani Islamic Boarding School in Semarang.

After the prayer, President Jokowi listened to a sermon delivered by preacher Hasyim Asy'ari, who is also chairman of the Indonesian General Election Commission. The theme of the sermon was “Sacrifice as a Test of Faith.”

In his sermon, Asy'ari said that Eid al-Adha is rooted in the history of Prophet Ibrahim and Prophet Ismail AS.

At that time, Allah had ordered Prophet Ibrahim to make a sacrifice by slaughtering his only biological son, Ismail. By his obedience, Prophet Ibrahim was willing to comply with this order.

“We should emulate and follow the sacrifices made by the prophets Ibrahim and Ismail, in the sense that we, with our abilities, are ready to obey and comply with the commands of Allah by sacrificing part of the wealth that we possess” , Asy'ari recalled.

“If on Eid al-Fitr we make others happy with zakat, then on Eid al-Adha we make others happy with sacrificial services,” he remarked.

On this occasion, Minister of Public Works and Public Housing Basuki Hadimuljono, Acting Governor of Central Java Nana Sudjana, Military Commander IV/Diponegoro, Major General Deddy Suryadi, Chief Inspector General of Police Central Java Regional Ahmad Luthfi and Semarang Major Hevearita Gunarti Rahayu also accompanied President Jokowi and First Lady Iriana.
