The main event of National Dhikr will be lead by KH Miftahul Akhyar and Habib Ahmad bin Idrus Al Habsy. National Dhikr will be closed by prayer lead by the elder of Nahdlatul Ulama KH Maimun Zubair.

According to Kiai Siradj, National Dhikir was held to response the concern of elder ulemas to the recent situation. Muslims in Indonesia have been divided, especially after a group claimed the Unitary State of the Republic of Indonesia (NKRI) as taghut or deviant or infidel.

Kiai Siradj was grateful MHDW could hold the second National Dhikr. He assessed, the government and ulemas should always cooperate to tackle offending sentiments on tribe, religion, race, and intergroup (SARA). He expressed hope the event could create prosperity and security and sustainable cooperation between ulemas and the government.
