Lebih kurang dua tahun yang lalu, aku mendengar syarahan dari sosok yang seakan Tony Stark, Hamza Yusuf di Youtube. Syarahan pertama yang aku dengar bertajuk ‘Rethinking Islamic Reform’ yang mana syarahan ini dihadiri oleh seorang lagi intelektual yang tidak perlu diberi pengenalan lagi, Prof. Tariq Ramadan. 

Dan selepas pada itu, aku berharap satu hari aku akan dapat mendengar syarahan kedua-dua intelektual ini secara langsung dan alhamdulillah Allah telah perkenankan doaku untuk bertemu dgn Prof. Tariq Ramadan(15.7.2012) dan Shaykh Hamza Yusuf(28.8.2014). 

Pembukaan majlis dihiasi dengan alunan al-Quran dari surah An-Nisa’ ayat 17-18. Ringkasnya, syarahan Hamza Yusuf yang bertajuk ‘Global Tawbah’ atau Taubat Global mengajak kita untuk kita bertaubat kepada Allah, perkara yang paling fundemental sekali dalam Islam. Untuk kembali kepada sang Pencipta terlebih dahulu kita perlu mengenal diri dan mengenal Allah. Perkara ini bukanlah perkara baru yang ditekankan kerana abad demi abad ramai para pendakwah menyeru kepada perkara yang sama contohnya seperti Jalāl ad-Dīn Muhammad Rūmī dan Sir Muhammad Iqbal. 

Akhir kata, aku mahu memetik kata-kata Hamza Yusuf di pengakhiran syarahannya

We need a sincere tawbah. Always ask forgiveness from Allah S.W.T even our prophet Muhammad p.b.u.h who has no sins at all ask forgiveness from Allah everyday.

p/s : sejak akhir-akhir ni aku cuba memahami pemikiran Rumi. Shaykh Hamza Yusuf juga ada memetik syair nukilan Rumi sebelum majlis berakhir :

“Come, come, whoever you are. Wanderer, worshiper, lover of leaving. It doesn’t matter. Ours is not a caravan of despair. come, even if you have broken your vows a thousand times. Come, yet again , come , come.”

How does it feel to be trapped in an open-air prison, under siege in your own home as bombs rain down on your and your family… and be deemed a problem?
How does it feel to wear the symbol of your faith and be assumed to be a terrorist threat… and to be deemed a problem? 
How does it feel to be oppressed, demonized and dehumanized for nearly 70 years… and to be deemed a problem? 
How does it feel to be a demographic threat to be neutralized and exterminated… to be deemed a problem? 
How does it feel to be a problem?

Aurangzeb, pembela Islam?

Kata Buya Hamka dalam bukunya Sejarah Umat Islam, jika kemegahan Andalusia ditegakkan oleh bani Umaiyah dan di Baghdad menjadi semarak pada zaman bani ‘Abbas dan di Eropah timur sampai 500 tahun tegak dengan megahnya bendera ‘Bulan Bintang’ yang dipancangkan oleh Kerajaan Turki [Uthmaniyah], maka bertambah indahlah permata rantaian sejarah Islam itu dengan adanya Kerajaan Mongol[Mughal] di India.

Kita jarang didedahkan dengan kegemilangan Islam di benua kecil India dan Taj Mahal merupakan perkara yang paling “Islam” yang saya ketahui sebelum ini. Semuanya disebabkan gilanya cinta seorang Raja Mughal kepada isterinya sehingga sanggup membina makam sebesar Taj Mahal. Namun begitu, pengalaman mengembara di India pada Ramadan tahun lepas membuka mata saya sendiri bahawa Islam mempunyai kedudukannya tersendiri dalam sejarah India umumnya dan sejarah Islam khususnya.

Mughal merupakan kerajaan Islam yang terpenting  dalam sejarah Islam di India kerana sewaktu Mughal memerintah Islam telah berada pada puncak keemasannya. Kesan sejarah yang paling jelas sekali ialah dari sudut seni binanya. Keindahan seni bina seperti binaan Taj Mahal dan Red Fort tidak dicapai sekiranya sesebuah kerajaan tidak mencapai kestabilan dan keharmonian politik serta tinggi nilai ilmunya. Seperti sejarah khalifah Harun Al-Rashid, sejarah Aurangzeb juga penting untuk dikaji bagi mengukuhkan lagi kefahaman kita bagaimana jatuh dan bangun sesebuah kerajaan Islam. Pautan dibawah merupakan tugasan saya untuk kursus Sejarah Islam di Asia Selatan. Selamat membaca!

“In Anderlecht, every day 220 young guys, from under-six to under-21, are dreaming about a future professional career. Explain to me how many from the 220 are going to reach professional level? Maximum 10%. When you are not a good educator, you say the 200 guys that will not reach a professional level is not my problem. I say: ‘Yes, it is my problem.’ We have to tell them that if they don’t reach professional level, because of injury, confidence, bad development, a family situation, if you stay in Anderlecht as long as possible, you will have a degree at school that will give you the opportunity to find a job, to be a human being with intellectual skills.”

We are living in a state of confusion. We are so paranoid with pig yet we deny our responsible towards environment. Been in New Zealand taught me that although most of the people there are not Muslim, but they live in the way Allah ask us to live. Have you ever thought, why we learn to read Quran from the few last chapters before learn to read the early chapter? One of the reason is, it is much easier but beyond that when we take a look at the meanings of all the sentences, Allah use various sort of nature as a metaphor. It is important to take note that it is the basic things to see and understand how vital the relationship of human being and nature. Yet we still ignore this beautiful words and continue to destroy the nature. I wonder why there is no fatwa saying that destroying nature is also haram? Do you still believe that you can go to heaven easily just by praying all day and night and neglecting your responsible with nature ? Dream it!
