titip salam untuk kanjeng nabi

9 Maret, 2014

Di antara pesan yang sering dititipkan oleh karib kerabatnya kepada peziarah masjid nabawi adalah, “titip salam untuk baginda rasul”, “titip salam untuk kanjeng nabi”, dan semisalnya. Demi menunaikan amanah tersebut, banyak peziarah yang mendatangi kuburan nabi shallallahu alaihi wasallam berkali-kali dan sayangnya tanpa adab yang dibenarkan.

Ketika mendatangi masjid nabawi, untuk ke kuburan nabi dan kedua sahabat beliau -Abu Bakar dan Umar radiyallahu anhuma– adalah melalui pintu Al-Salam. Tak sedikit yang lupa membaca doa memasuki masjid ketika melalui pintu itu dan lupa menunaikan dua rakaat tahiyatul masjid karena mengira bukan bagian masjid. Kemudian saling dorong antar jamaah dalam kondisi berdesak-desakan demi mendekati kuburan nabi. Lalu memberi salam dan salawat kepada nabi dengan salam dan salawat yang tidak pernah diajarkan oleh beliau atau dicontohkan oleh para sahabat beliau.

Ada yang berlama-lama berdiri menghadap ke kuburan nabi dan berdoa, bahkan ada pula yang mengutuk kedua sahabat nabi yang mulia. Banyak pula yang melambaikan tangan ketika melalui kuburan nabi. Adapun kaum wanita karena tidak diperkenankan masuk ke pintu Al-Salam, berkumpul di luar masjid atau dekat pintu keluar (Al-Baqi) dan melambaikan tangan ke arah kuburan beliau. Dari luar masjid, letak kuburan nabi dan kedua sahabatnya ditandai dengan kubah hijau peninggalan kekhalifahan Utsmani.

Padahal, Abdullah ibn Umar -radiyallahu anhuma- ketika mendatangi Masjid Nabawi adalah melakukan salat tahiyatul masjid dua rakaat kemudian pergi ke kuburan Nabi dan dua sahabat beliau lalu mengucapkan salam kepada mereka, setelah itu pergi tanpa berdiri lama di situ.

Adapun salam yang beliau ucapkan adalah:

السلام عليك يا رسول الله ورحمةالله وبركاته، السلام عليك ياأبابكر، السلام عليك يا عمر.

“Semoga salam sejahtera bagimu wahai Rasulullah beserta rahmat Allah dan berkah dari-Nya. Semoga salam sejahtera bagimu wahai Abu Bakar. Semoga salam sejahtera bagimu wahai Umar.”

Bagaimanapun, menyampaikan salam kepada Rasulullah tidaklah ada perbedaan keutamaan antara disampaikan di hadapan kubur beliau maupun di tempat lain bahkan di kampung sendiri yang jauh dari Madinah. Beliau shallallahu alaihi wasallam telah mengabarkan bahwa Allah akan selalu menyampaikan salawat dan salam dari umat kepada beliau dan atas izin-Nya pula ruh beliau dikembalikan untuk menjawab salam tersebut.

Semoga salam sejahtera dan salawat Allah senantiasa dilimpahkan kepada Nabi Muhammad.


refleksi [maulid] wafat nabi

24 Januari, 2013

Betapa banyak yg berhari raya di hari kamis ini padahal Rasulullah membiasakan berpuasa di hari kamis.

Betapa banyak yg membaca yasin di malam jumat padahal Rasulullah menganjurkan membaca alkahfi.

Betapa banyak yg lupa bersalawat setelah azan dan yg bersenandung di antara azan dan ikamah padahal Rasulullah memberitahu itu salah satu saat diijabahnya doa.

Betapa banyak yg meninggalkan sunnah dan menghidupkan bidah namun mengaku mencintai Rasulullah?

Shallallahu alaihi wa alaa alihi wasallam.

(refleksi [maulid] wafat nabi)
Betapa banyak yg mengenal 12 rabiul awal sbg hari lahir nabi walaupun banyak ulama sejarah tidak sepakat, namun sedikit yg mengetahui tgl tsb disepakati sbg hari wafatnya.*

*Imam Ibnu Hajar al-Asqalany di dalam kitab Al-Fath (Fathul Bari) mengatakan bahwa mayoritas ulama berpendapat bahwa Rasulullah wafat di waktu dhuha hari Senin di bulan Rabiul Awal yaitu hari kedua belas. Demikian pula Imam Ibnu Katsir menyatakannya di dalam Sirah Nabawiyah.

 

 


to love is to follow

27 Februari, 2010

Allah has created everything that exists in nature with a sense of love, including the man who has made as caliph, bearers of trust on earth. So the love of Allah to man, He did not allow us to live without purpose and without guidance. Human beings were not created by Allah but to serve Him [1] by purifying worship without associate with Him in worship of any kind[2].

However, can not be denied that some people worship their own way and think that Allah will accept their worship[3]. They argue that the love is the religion itself, even Allah is the love, so they replenish themselves with love it is it. Though there is no reason for anyone who claims to love, except to follow what is desired by the beloved.

Consequence of the love of Allah requires us to follow the Prophet as the Messenger in all goodness, faith, tawadhu’, and humble ourselves, thus all the sins we have done will be forgiven[4]. And whoever loves the Prophet, is mandatory for him to accept all guidances given by the Prophet, indeed it is really the best guidance. Among the evidence to follow the Prophet is believed that what was conveyed by him solely from Allah and the Prophet is not lying, reducing or adding to the words of Allah.

Then, with adherence to his commands, away from what he forbids, worship by following the Sunnah and avoid heresy as the worst case and an error that can lead us to Hell. In addition, a sign of devotion to the Prophet should be realized by sending Salawat as a tribute to him when his name is called, whether in prayer or on other occasions[5].

That’s what true love should be addressed to Allah and the Prophet.

[1] QS 51:56. “And I (Allah) created not the jinns and humans except they should worship Me (Alone).”

[2] QS 98:5. “And they were commanded not, but that they should worship Allah, and worship none but Him Alone (abstaining from ascribing partners to Him), and perform As-Salat (Iqamat-as-Salat) and give Zakat: and that is the right religion.”

[3] QS 2:165. “And of mankind are some who take (for worship) others besides Allah as rivals (to Allah). They love them as they love Allah. But those who believe, love Allah more (than anything else). If only, those who do wrong could see, when they will see the torment, that all power belongs to Allah and that Allah is Severe in punishment.”

[4] QS 3:31. Say (O Muhammad SAW to mankind): “If you (really) love Allah then follow me (i.e. accept Islamic Monotheism, follow the Qur’an and the Sunnah), Allah will love you and forgive you of your sins. And Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.”

[5] QS 33:56. “Allah sends His Salawat (Graces, Honours, Blessings, Mercy, etc.) on the Prophet (Muhammad SAW) and also His angels too (ask Allah to bless and forgive him). O you who believe! Send your Salawat on (ask Allah to bless) him (Muhammad SAW), and (you should) greet (salute) him with the Islamic way of greeting (salutation i.e. As-Salamu ‘Alaikum).”
