Sejarah Buruk Khilafah Abbasiyah

Anak2 eks HTI emang lucu-lucu. Rupiah anjlok, mereka bilang solusinya khilafah 😊 Apa mrk sangka di masa khilafah jaman old itu gak ada krisis ekonomi? Di masa khilafah semuanya makmur? Mimpiii! Saya kasih dua fakta saja yah. Simak yuk 🙏

Rakyat menderita pada masa Khalifah ke 22 Abbasiyah, Al-Mustakfi. Tidak ada makanan yang bisa mereka peroleh. Rakyat bertahan hidup dengan memakan apa saja, dari mulai rumput, sisa sampah, sampai anjing dan kucing liar.

Harga roti dikabarkan enam kali lebih mahal. Bahkan sejumlah perempuan terpaksa menjadi kanibal memakan daging dan tubuh mayat. Kondisi darurat!

Bukan lagi sekadar krisis mata uang. Mau ente sekarang makan bangkai anjing?

Sebelumnya, Khalifah ke 13 Abbasiyah al-Mu’tazz sukses bikin negara bangkrut. Untuk bayar gaji pasukan dia gak sanggup, maka dia minta ibunya keluarin duit. Namun ibunya menolak dengan alasan tidak punya uang. Imam Suyuthi dlm kitabnya meragukan jawaban ibunya Khalifah ini.

Ada laporan bhw ibunya memang enggan mengeluarkan 50 ribu dinar hasil korupsinya.

Kegagalan al-Mu’tazz memenuhi permintaan militer ini fatal. Ini membuat semua fraksi militer (Turki, Faraghinah dan Magharibah) bersatu dan sepakat menyingkirkan Khalifah yang sudah bangkrut ini.

maka pasukan menyerbu masuk dan menyeret Khalifah al-Mu’tazz keluar istana. Sambil mereka memukuli Khalifah yang saat itu masih berusia sekitar 24 tahun. Baju Khalifah koyak di sana-sini dan darah terlihat di bajunya. Sang Khalifah dijemur di panas terik mentari. Tragis!

Al-Mu’tazz kemudian dipaksa untuk menulis surat pegunduran dirinya. Dia tidak sanggup menuliskannya. Lantas surat dituliskan dan dia dipaksa menandatanganinya.

Setelah itu dia dimasukkan ke dalam kamar tanpa diberi makan dan minum selama tiga hari. Akhirnya al-Mu’tazz dia wafat

Ini nasib tragis para khalifah Abbasiyah

1. Khalifah ke18 al-Muqtadir (dipenggal kepalanya)
2. Khalifah ke19 al-Qahir (dicongkel matanya)
3. Khalifah ke20 ar-Radhi (wafat sakit)
4. Khalifah ke21 al-Muttaqi (dicongkel matanya)
5. Khalifah ke22 al-Mustakfi (dicongkel matanya)

Ini sebuah fakta yg menyedihkan yang terjadi di masa khilafah. Jadi, ya biasa-biasa saja, dalam rentang waktu yang panjang ada kalanya kekhilafahan mendatangkan kemakmuran spt di masa Harun ar-Rasyid tapi ada juga periode dimana kemelaratan dan kemiskinan melanda kekhilafahan.

Masalahnya, eks HTI itu menyembunyikan fakta krisis dan kebangkrutan yg dialami khilafah jaman old, lantas menyerang demokrasi dan pemerintah RI seolah khilafah itu satu-satunya solusi utk Rupiah yg anjlok. Khilafah jaman old dulu pernah lebih parah lagi woyyyy

Modusnya eks HTI: menyerang kondisi sekarang dg kisah kejayaan masa silam. Ketika ditunjukkan fakta sejarah bhw khilafah dulu jg bermasalah, mrk ngeles bhw sejarah gak bisa jadi sumber hukum. Lha terus knp ente duluan ngutip sejarah masa lalu? Hahahaha

Mau tahu lebih detil lagi kisah Khilafah era Abbasiyah? Nantikan buku Islam Yes, Khilafah No, jilid kedua, yang akan segera terbit bulan September ini, insya Allah 🙏😊

Simplify Life

Simplify Life

I always believe that we should simplify life instead of making it complicated.

We see many things before us that are required to be done. And we have identified which one is the all important and which one are not substantial. Do the all important things and leave the unnecessary things behind. We cannot entertain and make everyone happy all the time. In the end of the day, we are alone who are going to face consuequences: for the better of the worse.

Are Indonesian People Lazy, Careless or Indiscipline?

Are Indonesian People Lazy, Careless or Indiscipline? A survey conducted for a doctoral dissertation in psychology

Indonesian people still like being procrastinator i.e. to put off or delay doing something, especially out of habitual carelessness or laziness. Despite it seems trivial, losses caused by procrastination habit can not be taken lightly. In a study conducted by Prof. Dr. BAGUS SIAPUTRA, S. Psi lecturer at the Faculty of Psychology University of Surabaya (UBAYA), the material losses caused by delaying this work could reach trillions of rupiah.

In psychology, work delay is known as procrastination. The research for a dissertation of doctoral program at UGM was conducted on 232 students who procrastinate in working on their thesis. Losses incurred due to the delay in finishing their thesises turned out to trillions of rupiah for each semester, calculated from the addition of tuition fees and living expenses for college travel

"Let's say there are at least 100 thousand students who procrastinate finishing their thesis each semester, the losses would have reached trillions of dollars for them," he said as quoted by suarasurabaya.net

In terms of non-economy, delays in completing thesis also has implications for the students, the crisis of confidence, anxiety, shame, stress due to the threat of the drop outs, delays in the work, to delay of marriage plans.

Surat Terbuka Pengungsi Lombok untuk Jokowi

Surat Terbuka Pengungsi Lombok untuk Jokowi

Kepada bpk presiden RI

Saya bukan pendukungmu, bahkan sy pembencimu. Sy tak rela engkau kembali jadi presiden.

Bukan karna harga2 pada mahal spt kata orang, toh kami masih pada mampu untuk belanja, padahal kami bukan orang mampu.
Sy menolakmu karna masalah idiologi, masalah kapasitasmu dan semua predikat tentangmu spt yg sy yakini selama ini.

Maka ketika gempa menimpa kami, dan engkau datang berkunjung. Sy tetap tdk respek. Toh itu tugasmu pak presiden.

Maka ketika engkau datang ke Lombok Utara dan masyarakat pada menyambutmu, sy diam saja dan hanya melihatmu dari jauh dgn rasa sinis. Bahkan sy melarang anak istri untuk ikut larut dlm euforia kegembiraan menyambutmu. Padahal sy lihat istri sy pengen juga mendekat, ikut salaman bahkan berfoto2 spt yg dilakukan masyarakat lainnya.

Sampai datang waktu sholat. Kulihat bapak presiden tetap ingin sholat jamaah bersama kami walau diingatkan sarana yg tdk memungkinkan.

Dgn tenang bpk presiden menuju gentong biru tempat penampungan air untuk berwudhu. Sangat hati2 dan memakai air sedikit sekali, mungkin karna tahu air bersih sulit kami dapatkan. Dan agar jamaah lainnya tetap kebagian air untuk berwudhu. Lalu menyilahkan orang lain berwudhu di tempat itu.

Sampai pada saat sholat sy masih mencari2 kesalahannya. Bacaannya standar2 saja spt imam lainnya.
Orang2pun bersalaman dgn bpk presiden tanpa canggung. Tapi sy tetap menjauh dan tdk peduli.

Ketika bapak presiden ikut tidur di tenda, sy diam2 mulai memperhatikannya. Sosok yg mungkin sudah letih malam itu, tetap tampil penuh perhatian, menyapa rakyatnya dan berdiskusi pendek entah apa yg ditanyakan.

Tubuh pemimpin itu rela merebahkan tubuhnya di bawa tenda beralaskan karpet di lapangan sepak bola ini dgn kondisi yg sangat memprihatinkan.

Sejak tidur ditenda ini. Sy tdk pernah pulas, selalu was was dan terbangun begitu mendengar bunyi apapun. Khawatir dgn gempa susulan, khawatir dgn semua kemungkinan buruk yg siap menimpa kami.

Tapi malam ini, alampun seperti diam memberi kenyamanan untuk kami beristirahat. Begitu syahdu, begitu damai perasaan keluarga sy.

Baru kali ini sy pulas tertidur seperti ada seseorang yg melindungi kami, menjaga istirahat kami, berada ditengah2 kami seperti rakyat lainnya.

Sebelum tertidur, sy masih melihat dari jauh sosok pemimpin itu terbangun duduk. Mengitari pandangannya melihat dgn seksama pada rakyatnya yg bergelimpangan diatas tikar.

Bapak presiden ikut merebahkan badannya, ikut bersama kami merasakan dinginnya malam,.
Malam ini begitu damai dan tenang. Bahkan suara tangis anak2 yg biasanya berisik malam ini tdk terdengar. Anak sy juga tidak rewel. Malam yg begitu tenang. Seakan tidur kami di nina bobokkan oleh seorang ayah pada anak2nya.
Ya, seorang presiden pada rakyatnya.

Sewaktu bapak presiden pamit untuk melanjutkan perjalanannya, barulah sy mendekat untuk ikut menjabat tangan itu.
Dgn lirih sy ucapkan terimakasih dan kata maaf yg mungkin tdk dimengerti oleh bapak presiden.
Dalam hati sy memohon pada sang khalik, maafkan hambamu yg sangat kejam membenci pemimpinnya ini.
Kulihat ketulusan pada wajah kurusnya, kulihat keteduhan pada matanya. Kulihat senyum tipisnya yg ikhlas sambil menjabat tangan sy. Ingin rasanya memeluk tubuh kurus yg keletihan itu sambil memohon maaf, ampun atas kesalahan2 yg kulakukan.
Tapi sy hanya bisa berkata pelan " maafkan sy pak."

Hanya itu yg keluar dari mulut sy, karna bapak presiden dgn cepat menjabat tangan2 yg lain.
Sy melihat punggung itu menjauh ditemani bapak gubernur kami TGB.
Sosok pemimpin2 yg baru saja memperlihatkan jatidirinya, tabiat dan karakternya, bukan pencitraan spt yg selama ini sy tuduhkan...

Maafkan sy bapak presiden. Maafkan rakyatmu yg tdk tahu diri, yg hanya mengenalmu dari opini2 dan sosial media.
Walau sy masih bersyukur, masih sempat meminta maaf sebelum ajal menjemput dan mempertanggung jawabkan semua dosa2 sy terhadap sang ulil amry kepada sang Khalik Allah SWT...

Muhammad Yunus and Nobel Peace Prize

Muhammad Yunus and Nobel Peace Prize
Muhammad Yunus and Nobel Peace Prize

Muhammad Yunus and Nobel Peace PrizeI am not an economist, nor am I a South Asian countries (India, Pakistan, Bangladesh) analyst. I hardly write on India-Pakistan-Bangladesh political events unless there’s an Indonesian newspaper requests me to do so.

That’s why when CNN reported last night that Nobel peace prize winner for this year is a person named Muhammad Yunus, a Bangladeshi, the inventor of microcredit loan and founder of Brameen Bank which jointly announced as a co-winner, I am so amazed, surprised and happy for various reasons.First, as far as I can tell, it’s for the first time that Nobel Peace Prize being awarded to a non-political personality. Nobel Peace usually has more political connotation with, well, a bit American flavour. So, to see an economist as the winner is in itself surprising and an encouraging sign.

Second, Muhammad Yunus is a banker, a very rich man, who thinks a lot about the poor and try hard to find a way to eradicate poverty. He thinks, he gets a brilliant idea to solve poverty and implement it. For example, the microcredit system will allow a poor person to take a loan as small as USD 25 to build a (very) small business. It’s a huge success for both the creditor and the debtors. In another word, it successfully has created many jobs among the poors in Bangladesh and now being implemented around the world.

Third, what poverty eradication to do with peace? The Nobel Peace committee rightly said that when poverty doesn’t exist, peace will prevail. I couldn’t agree more with that.

Fourth, Muhammad Yunus is not only thinking about the poor and find the big way to help them without distracting their dignity, but also BEHAVING like ones: wearing a simple clothes the poors used to wear; assembling with them with ease without any attitude that might offend them; and talking to them without any sign of uncomfortability. I saw him in CNN how he’s enjoying making jokes and having fun with the downtrodden villagers in a Bangladesh remote area, the less fortunate people who he holds very dear. Something that our middle class society, who often behaves like Hollywood celebrities should be ashamed of.

I wrote somewhere that when we live in a country like Indonesia, where corruption is prevalent and poverty becomes a natural consequence of a country mismanagement, someone, or group of individuals with more skill and qualification should stand up with all his capability and skill to contribute, because in this situation the government is certainly not the one we can hope to make amend. Muhammad Yunus is certainly up to the task.

What contribution we can make? Live simple and humble, I think, is the first step in the right direction. If we earn U$D 1000/month, for example, spend less than that. If we can save USD 50/month for educating one poor kid, that would be great. On top of it all, even if you dont contribute financially to the poor, living humble and simple and avoid showing off your wealth in front of them, I believe, is a sort of indirect contribution as far as social harmony is concerned.

Just a thought, though. Nevertheless, at least, I do what I’m saying.

Rafael Nadal, the Mental Giant, Ferocious Competitor

Rafael Nadal, the Mental Giant and Ferocious Competitor
Rafael Nadal

I like watching tennis on TV every now and then. Especially when Roger Federer, the most elegant tennis player I've ever seen, is playing. But I like Rafael Nadal -Roger heir apparent-- more on one thing: his resilience and tenacity, his fearless and never-give-up attitude. Many top ten tennis player just consider Roger as invisible; as much as top ten golfers see Tiger Wood in his heyday.

Even the boom-boom player like Andy Roddick thinks so. Rafael Nadal does not. And that's why he becomes the only one among the top ten tennis players who can beat Roger Federer more than anyone else. Nadal himself acknowledge in an interview that his tenacity and fearlessness are his greatest assets in attaining his mercurial achievements.

And we, Indonesians, should watch Nadal more closely. Because many of us don't have that kind of characters Nadal has which are badly needed for facing any challenges ahead; not only challenge without but also within ourselves.

We tend to avoid challenges given to us instead of facing it unless 100 percent sure that we are capable of doing that challenge. If you have some Indian or Chinese colleague, you must be aware of what I'm saying. Frankly, among ethnic Malays - Malaysia, Brunei, Pathani (South Thailand) - Indonesians are one step ahead in terms of skills and tenacity. But, let's face it, we certainly lag behind those of other ethnic such as Indian and Chinese in terms of confidence and gut in facing hard and pressure-cooker challenges.

The lack of tenacity, perseverance and resilience symbolize more clearly when our football team are playing and concede two or three goals in the first half of play. You'll see the team look disoriented, desperate and crest-fallen. What's wrong with us? Is our Javanese culture--sopan santun, ewuh pakewuh, priyayi-abangan system--contributes to this phenomenon?
