Another July, another also Adit. Adit is an overseas child from a remote area in North Sumatra, Padang Sidempuan. Both of Adit's parents are Rubber Farmers who do not have their own land or are still working for other people's land. Adit must divide his time between going to school, memorizing the Qur'an and becoming a coach at the Darul Akhyar Islamic Boarding School in Depok. So that not only was brilliant at school, Aditya also had the opportunity to complete the memorization of 4 juz of the Qur'an and have a sweet voice when chanting the verses of the Qur'an.

During the Talkshow session, July was present with his mother. As for Adit, he was alone because his parents lived far away in remote North Sumatra, Padang Sidempuan.

During the talkshow session, after the videos from the lives of Juli and Adit were shown, soon the two people who came to the center of attention of all attendees of the 11th floor of Wisma Mandiri 1. They were both Adit's parents who were brought in secret by the LAZNAS BSMU team to be a surprise for Adit. At that time, an expression of joy, emotion and disbelief coalesced in Adit's face. At that time, Adit ran to his parents and hugged and greeted both of them with a blue emotion. At that time, almost all of the audience cried with emotion. Even the directors and invited guests did not escape shedding tears.

When on stage, a sentence from Adit's Mother that made the audience's tears flow was "O Allah O Rahman O Rah Raheem ... Guide my children to the right path O O Allah .. protect all of my children O Allah .. Where ever they are. "Aamiin ... Aamiin Yes Rabbal 'alamin ..." while crying. The committee that set up this surprise strategy was also moved to tears.

"In my opinion, the Indonesian Student Friends (program) organized by Laznas BSM Umat is a very good program ... for the welfare and advancement of education, our children and young generation ... and not only that ... but accompanied by improvements in terms of morality so that it is hoped that later it can have good morality and noble character ... as the next generation of the nation .. "

"I think this program can be further disseminated ... even further to remote corners of the archipelago ... to areas that might indeed have to be helped huh ... because surely a lot of young people there in remote areas are in dire need of facilities like this. "This (SPI) is very good ..." commented Nina Tonny Eko Subari, Chairperson of BSM IIK Trustees.

Nina menambahkan, “Untuk para peserta SPI, tingkatkan terus semangatnya.. tingkatkan terus belajarnya.. karena kesempatan tidak pernah datang dua kali.. manfaatkan kesempatan ini dengan sebaik-baiknya demi masa depan kalian..” pesannya untuk para peserta beasiswa SPI.

Acara ini berakhir dengan sajian live music dari Happy Hours Band dan makan siang bersama di ball room. Tema acara yang berwarna black-gold, lighhting system dengan dekorasi lampu-lampu cantik hidangan cathering menjadikan suasana begitu hidup dan hangat. Para wisudawan terlihat saling bercengkrama, berfoto-foto dan tertawa satu sama lain. Para wisudawan dan para wali mengucapkan banyak terima kasih kepada para panitia dan Laznas BSMU. LAZNAS BSMU beharap agar kelak para alumni beasiswa SPI menjadi generasi muda yang baik secara spiritual, akademik serta berakhlak mulia, mandiri dan bermanfaat untuk ummat. (Red/Aisyah)
