Micro strategy goal is to make a Muslim's personality better by improving the quality of the students' faith by cultivating a spirit of responsibility towards themselves, improving the quality of worship, studying Islamic sciences with proper and correct and following the sunnahs of the Prophet Muhammad SAW. This is very important to improve because the Muslim population in Cambodia is still very small due to the PoL Pot war in 1975 - 1979 led by the Khmer Rouge Army. Therefore, as an Indonesian, we must also learn about this, and take a lesson of any circumstances.
