It was Joko Setiarjo, who promised to clean the mosque at Islamic Center University of Ahmad Dahlan (UAD) on condition that his daughter be a lecturer at the university. He said he assisted the mosque’s committee to clean the mosque and serve the people’s breaking their fasting there as he was interviewed by the reporter.
After introducing himself to the committee and campus, the secondary school teacher of SMP 1 Girisubo, Gunungkidul, hurriedly helped the committee for the first day. He did it for a week.
After his daughter was announced a lecturer, the 56 year teacher met his promise. ‘If not cleaning, anything I can do. This is an expression of my honor to Allah as my daughter was announced a lecturer,’ said Joko at Islamic Center Mosque.
