The student is named Abdul Wahhab. This time, he won 1st place in the Inya '(writing Arabic essay) Competition of the PSBA (Arabic Language Arts Week) organized by ITTAQO IAIN Salatiga with the theme "Making Arabic as a Spirit in a Pandemic Era".

A series of PSBA (Arabic Language Arts Week) ITTAQO IAIN Salatiga events this time took place from 26 September to 11 October with 5 competitions, namely ghina '(Arabic singing) competition, khitobah (Arabic speech) competition, syi'ir aroby (poetry) competition.

On 11 October, it was finally announced that Abdul Wahhab from UM had won the 1st place in the Insya 'Competition.

This spirit can certainly serve as a valuable experience for students in preparing for various global challenges.
