First of all, let us give thanks to God for the blessings and His grace that we may not be able to count them. Do not forget we are always expecting a blessing to The Greatest man The Phrophet of Muhammad peace be upon him ladies and gentlemen

Humans have an important role in the world. The condition is good and bad of life on earth depends on the good and bad of human behavior as penghunianya. This is the duty of man as God khalifatullah as described in Surah al-Baqarah verse: 30, followed by verse 31

And (remember) when your Lord said to the angels: "Verily, I am going to place (mankind) generations after generations on earth." They said: "Will You place therein those who will make mischief therein and shed blood, - while we glorify You with praises and thanks (Exalted be You above all that they associate with You as partners) and sanctify You." He (Allah) said: "I know that which you do not know." I mean the word 'caliphate' in the above paragraph are human. While the word asma in the next verse means' value'. That is, Allah created man on earth as a 'manifestation' of Allah who is obliged to develop asma '(value) ilhiyah. Among the 'divine values in the face of the earth is the diversity of its form being either animals or plants. This sunnatullah that always makes something with variety. Moreover, God Almighty made man in a variety of ethnic, racial, national, ethnic, language, social status, and so on. It is a manifestation of Allah SWT as rabb for the universe (rabb al-'aalamin).

Apparently, Allah did not intentionally make people under uniform conditions, because Allah wants to test the quality of human beings, whether they are able to build harmony in difference? So as to create a respectful life in a healthy competition. And may Allah Almighty created man in one kind only, Allah SWT says in surah al-Mâ'idah 48 Meaning: If Allah willed, He would have made you one nation, but that (He) may test you in what He has given you; so strive as in a race in good deeds. The return of you (all) is to Allah; then He will inform you about that in which you used to differ

In addressing these differences, well may we reflect on the example of the Prophet Muhammad while living in Medina. How he respects other religions without compromising the spirit of the Islamic da'wah to them. Similarly, Indonesia, Indonesia has a pluralistic nation. Perhaps on this earth only Indonesia that Allah blessed. as a nation that has hundreds of tribes, languages, traditions and cultures. Diversity is not a tragedy, but a potential that can be used as an instrument to create a life of creative, innovative and competitive. Therefore, it is important we look at some of the concepts in Islam about the differences so that we would be able to understand and make sense of life is different.

Firstly: human diversity is not a disaster. So is the potential diversity of Indonesia. To optimize the potential of the consciousness of the people of this country need to know and understand each others around him,

يَا أَيُّهَا النَّاسُ إِنَّا خَلَقْنَاكُمْ مِنْ ذَكَرٍ وَأُنْثَىٰ وَجَعَلْنَاكُمْ شُعُوبًا وَقَبَائِلَ لِتَعَارَفُوا ۚ إِنَّ أَكْرَمَكُمْ عِنْدَ اللَّهِ أَتْقَاكُمْ ۚ إِنَّ اللَّهَ عَلِيمٌ خَبِيرٌ

“O mankind! We have created you from a male and a female, and made you into nations and tribes, that you may know one another. Verily, the most honourable of you with Allah is that (believer) who has At-Taqwa [i.e. one of the Muttaqun (pious - see V.2:2)]. Verily, Allah is All-Knowing, All-Aware”. QS. Al-Hujurat: 13

Secondly, Endeavor develop and preserve tradition. The extent of Indonesia with the various islands are geographically also explained that the country is rich in tradition. Respect and preserve their own culture is an effort to instill a strong nationalistic attitude towards yourself.

Thirthly efforts to preserve humanity committed in the state and nation. All groups of people have the same rights and obligations under the law. National and state commitment means a commitment not to oppression, discrimination, and other crimes against the children of the nation itself, to the nation and other countries.

These steps we attempt to establish the stage of life in the community is let more Islamic. So the ideal stage will form an order of the society, nation and state in accordance with the nature of humanity. Then the struggle that lay 'values' on the basis of the struggle, will give birth to an ideal climate, namely the creation of a nation that puts human nature above all else.

This is the speech that we say, if it is solely from God. We are sorry if only the fault of us, wallahu muwaffiq ila aqwamith Thoriq, السلام عليكم ورحمة الله و بركاته
