INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta - Chairman of the National Awakening Party (PKB) Muhaimin Iskandar said the difference between Muhammadiyah with Nahdlatul Ulama (NU) is only a matter of sunnah only, for example about praying qunut at dawn prayer and the number of rakah tarawih prayer.
"The difference about the sunnah triggered the debate, but I have vowed to end the debate," said Muhaimin when giving a statement in Tasyakuran Milad 86 Years of Muhammadiyah Youth at Muhammadiyah Da'wah Center, Jakarta, Saturday (5/5/2018)
Muhaimin's pledge to no longer debate the difference between Muhammadiyah and NU is not without cause. He recounted that time was involved in the debate about the number of rakah tarawih prayers while still in Yogyakarta.
Muhammadiyah indeed performs tarawih prayers as much as eight rak'ahs plus three rakaat witir prayers, while the total NU is working on 23 rak'ahs.
"Finally the debate has not ended until those involved in the debate, including me, have not even practiced tarawih prayers until dawn, and since then I have vowed to end the debate," he said.
A number of national political figures attended the Thasyakuran Milad 86 Years of Muhammadiyah Youth held at the Muhammadiyah Da'wah Center.
