A joint prayer was held at At-Tarbiyah Mosque in Kladufu Village, Sorong City after the evening prayer, Saturday (9/29) night.

"Upon hearing the news, we immediately initiated ourselves, formed a circle, opened the Al-Qur'anul Karim," said Siti Nur Syamsiyah on Sunday (9/30) morning.

With solemnness, continued Siti, they offered prayers together for the safety and peace of mind in the brothers in Central Sulawesi and West Sulawesi.

Siti said there were 24 people who joined the prayer that night.

General Chairman of the PBNU, KH Said Aqil Siroj, the best step to respond to natural disasters is to have a goal and self-reflection. "Let's take lessons from this event," explained Kiai Said, Friday (9/28).

Director of Aswaja NU East Java Center, KH Ma'ruf Khozin invited all parties, especially Muslims, to pray for the best for the disaster.

"Shaykhul Islam Zakariya Al-Ansori said a prayer during the earthquake with a prayer that occurred in the Prophet's time in the form of strong winds as explained in the book Asna Al-Mathalib 1 page 288," KH Ma'ruf Khozin said on Friday (9/28).

In the book, continued Kia Ma'ruf Khozin, it is recommended for everyone, especially Muslims to
earnestly pray when there are earthquakes and the like, like lightning and strong winds.

"Because if the Prophet Muhammad saw a strong wind then pray, O Allah, I ask you for the goodness of the wind and in it and the goodness that you send. And I ask for protection from you from the ugliness of the wind and what is in it and the evil that you send, "he said.
