BSM Assists with Construction of a Mushola (Praying Building) in IPB

Bank Syariah Mandiri (BSM) gave development aid for the construction of Mushola Ulil Albaab in the neighborhood of General Competency Program (PPKU) in Darmaga campus of Bogor Agricultural University (IPB), (6/3). The aid worth of Rp 250 million was submitted by Managing Director of BSM Agus Sudiarto to IPB Rector Prof. Dr. Herry Suhardiyanto.

Rector said that the establishment of Mushola Ulil Albaab has long been expected. This idea comes up because of the needs of students who have a very short period of time between the lecture time and the prayer time, so they need more energy if they go to the mosque far away from the lecture building.

"Hopefully, with this establishment of Mushola Ulil Albaab, there would be expectations of those who always think about the creation of the heavens and the earth so as to produce competent scholars having good morals. We hope the funds provided by Bank Syariah Mandiri become a pious deed and it would develop into a large Islamic bank, contributing to the community and people of Indonesia," said Rector.

Managing Director of BSM, Agus Sudiarto said that this aid is an implementation of one of BSM's missions, namely to increase care for the public and the environment. BSM is committed to always realizing our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), which is based on the three aspects of spiritualism, nationalism and prosperity.

"Thank God, we were given the opportunity to synergize. In sha Allah (with God’s Will) with this prayer building, it would be easier and tranquilizing for the students to do the praying in their busy academic activities," he said.

From a business standpoint, Agus said BSM has long been in partnership with IPB. Until now BSM cooperation with IPB has covered the utilization of banking products and services based on Islamic principles including finance, funding, cash management systems, and others. "Basically, Islamic banks and colleges have the same mission, which is to improve the welfare of the people, in which the banks deal with the economic aspect while colleges with educational aspect,'' he added.
