Marrying and spreading the faith in Kalimantan.
In Balikpapan, (map) East Kalimantan about 20 students of the Hidayatullah Islamic school were each married off on 10th September in a mass ceremony to women they had not met.
The wedding ceremony.
The marriages were witnessed by the mens' families however their brides waited outside the mosque and listened to the proceedings through a loudspeaker.
Immediately after the ceremony, or perhaps a little time after the ceremony, the young men were dispatched to various areas to carry out dakwah, or Islamic missionary activity. They were instructed by their teachers to faithfully spread the form of Islam they had learned while at Hidayatullah. liputan6
