buhul/bu·hul/ (knot)
n. a knot on a rope; binding; fastening;”

In maritime cultures, the term ‘buhul’ is commonplace, representing the essential ropes and strong, flexible knots ships and boats rely on against the unpredictability of waves. Yet, in today’s digital age, the word “buhul” has receded in Indonesian media, being primarily associated with magic and mysticism. Given the backdrop of a post-pandemic world, heightened tensions in Palestine, catastrophes in Turkey and Syria, and gender crises in Iran and Afghanistan, there’s a pressing need for deeper human bonds.

Madani introduces “buhul” as this year’s theme, urging us to foster stronger connections with each other, with Allah, and with nature.
