Panca Nugraha, The Jakarta Post, North Lombok
Peace and unity are beautiful. This message has been consistently maintained by residents of Karang Pangsor hamlet at Pemenang district in North Lombok regency, West Nusa Tenggara (NTB).
It is demonstrated by Jami’ul Jamaah Mosque, which was built in collaboration by followers of three religions — Islam, Hinduism and Buddhism — in the late 18th century.
“It has become our tradition that we invite the participation of Hindus and Buddhists whenever we renovate the mosque. We work together with a spirit of mutual aid,” Haji Aburrahim, 98, a public figure from Pemenang Barat village, where the mosque is located, said on Tuesday evening.
Jami’ul Jamaah itself means “all congregation members”, which indicates the process of its establishment, which involved the participation of the followers of the three religions. The mosque stands at the main road heading for Bangsal port, a crossing place to the exotic Gili Trawangan Island.
Renovation work on the mosque began in 2004 and was self funded. It is half-complete, with the frame of the building being made from concrete.
