Therefore, it takes an exploration to identify about the existence of religion as a unifying aspect, precisely religion has become the glue of people’s lives. Morocco and Indonesia have in common, have community behavior that upholds the tolerance of religious people and accentuates the attitude of hospitality to non-Muslims. Morocco also has cooperation with Indonesia in accordance with the spirit of strengthening relations between countries that want peace in the world.” he wrote
