Meneladani Keikhlasan Seorang Ulama Besar Islam

ShareAr-Rabi’ bin Sulaiman berkata, “Aku mendengar Asy Syafi’i berkata, “Aku ingin bahwasanya manusia mempelajari ilmu ini dan tidak dinisbatkan kepadaku sedikitpun darinya.”
Ar-Rabi’ juga menuturkan, “Aku masuk menemui Asy-Syafi’i ketika ia sakit, lantas ia menanyakan keadaan sahabat-sahabat kami, lalu ia berkata, ‘Hai anakku, sungguh aku sangat ingin, bahwasanya manusia semuanya mempelajari – maksudnya kitab-kitabnya – dan tidak dinisbatkan kepadaku sedikitpun darinya.”

Dari Harmalah ia berkata, “Aku mendengar Asy Syafi’i berkata, “Aku ingin bahwasanya setiap ilmu yang kuajarkan kepada kepada manusia aku diberi pahala atasnya dan mereka tidak memujiku.” (Hilyatul Awliya’ oleh Abu Nu’aim: 9/118)

Semoga Allah merahmatimu wahai Imam Asy Syafi’i …

Perjuangannya untuk membela dan menyebarkan sunnah Nabi shallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallama sehingga ia digelari Naashirus Sunnah (pembela sunnah).

Perjuangannya membukukan sendi-sendi ilmu ushul fiqh untuk pertama kali dalam sejarah, sehingga terbukalah kunci-kunci ilmu fiqh bagi orang-orang sesudahnya.

Namun ia tidak ingin orang memujinya, tidak ingin manusia menyebut-nyebut jasanya sedikitpun ..

Demikianlah ketulusan para ulama, jauh dari keinginan tenar dan tersohor, jauh dari ‘ujub dan sum’ah.

Adapun penuntut ilmu hari ini ..

Tidak sedikit yang bangga hanya karena menulis satu, dua atau beberapa artikel yang itupun isinya mencomot (copy paste) dari sana dan sini.

Bangga karena gelar kesarjanaan yang telah diraih …

Semoga Allah Ta’ala melimpahkan kepada kita keikhlasan dalam beramal, dan menjauhkan kita dari penyakit riya’, ‘ujub dan hubbusy syuhrah (cinta ketenaran) , amin.

THE ISLAMIC (HIJRI) CALENDAR

The Islamic Calendar, which is based purely on lunar cycles, was first introduced in 638 C.E. by the close companion of the Prophet and the second Caliph, `Umar ibn Al-KHaTTab (592-644 C.E.). He did it in an attempt to rationalize the various, at times conflicting, dating systems used during his time. `Umar consulted with his advisors on the starting date of the new Muslim chronology. It was finally agreed that the most appropriate reference point for the Islamic calendar was the _Hijrah_. The actual starting date for the Calendar was chosen (on the basis of purely lunar years, counting backwards) to be the first day of the first month (1 MuHarram) of the year of the Hijrah. The Islamic (Hijri) calendar (with dates that fall within the Muslim Era) is usually abbreviated A.H. in Western languages from the latinized _Anno Hegirae_. MuHarram 1, 1 A.H. corresponds to July 16, 622 C.E.

The Hijrah, which chronicles the migration of the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) from Makkah to Madinah in September 622 C.E., is the central historical event of early Islam. It led to the foundation of the first Muslim city-state, a turning point in Islamic and world history.

To Muslims, the Hijri calendar is not just a sentimental system of time reckoning and dating important religious events (e.g., Siyaam (fasting) and Hajj (pilgrimage to Makkah)). It has a much deeper religious and historical significance.
