Inayah Wulandari

After Idul Fitri prayers at Al Munawaroh Grand Mosque at 7:20 a.m., the family of the late Abdurrahman "Gus Dur" Wahid gathered at the home of his wife Sinta Nuriyah and youngest daughter Inayah Wulandari. The Idul Fitri celebration in Ciganjur was not a moment exclusively for family members, as guests from various social classes and beliefs visited the home into the night.

At 8:30 a.m. on the first day of Idul Fitri on Sunday (25/6/2017), the family of the nation’s fourth president was preparing for the sungkeman ritual (kneeling before one’s elders to ask for forgiveness). Inayah and her four older sisters, namely Alisa Qotrunnada, Zanuba Ariffah Chafsoh and Anita Hayatunnufus, along with nine grandchildren, prepared for the ritual in the living room. After she was helped to move from her wheelchair to a sofa, Sinta accepted the sungkem (requests for forgiveness) and warm hugs from her children, children in-law and grandchildren.
