Rabithah Ma’ahid Islamiyah (RMI) of Probolinggo City released a number of students, who would take part in the East Java Yellow Book (OKK) Olympics. The release was held on Friday evening (3/29), at the Probolinggo Mayor’s Official House.

In addition to Mayor Hadi Zainal Abidin, there were also a number of heads of Regional Working Units (OPD). Among them, Expert Staff of Law and Politics Government, Paeni; Head of the Department of Education, Youth and Sports, Moch Maskur; Head of Community Welfare Department, Choirul Anam; and Head of Public Relations and Protocol, Mardi Prihatini.

Chairperson of Rabithah Ma’ahid Islamiyah (RMI), M. Shulton said that Yellow Book Olympics is a provincial level competition which is held once a year.

This year, Probolinggo City sent a contingent containing 4 participants including 2 men and 2 women. Meanwhile, the competition will be held on March 30, 2019, for one whole day at the Lirboyo Kediri Islamic Boarding School.

There are two categories of competitions that will be contested. They are the book Bulghul Marom and the Book of Fiqh with a participant age category of 17-20 years. “Hopefully the trip will be smooth and the participants will be successful,” Shulton hoped.

Probolinggo Mayor, Habib Hadi Zainal Abidin said that the government must take part and play a role in advancing, educating security activities, such as the OKK.

According to Habib Hadi – the familiar nickname of the mayor – in the boarding schools there are many special talents found in the field of reading the yellow book. Islamic boarding schools have methods and have pupils who are capable of acting specifically in the religious field.

“I wish, before sending the contingent to East Java, Islamic boarding school institutions in Probolinggo City must be involved. So, it doesn’t seem picky. And, all boarding schools must take part in sending participants to get superior talents,” he ordered.

In addition, Habib Hadi also added that before sending participants to East Java it would be better to make similar activities in Probolinggo City. Thus, participants sent to East Java were selected pupils. “Hopefully in the future, RMI can improve the quality of students in the Islamic boarding schools,” continued Habib Hadi.

On that occasion, Habib Hadi also appreciated the OKK activities. “Hopefully the journey will run smoothly. This activity would be successful. So, it can be used as an example for his friends to be more enthusiastic,” explained Habib Hadi.
