SIRI: ASYURA YANG TIDAK DIKENAL 2


Mengapa menongkah tradisi Hari Asyura? Disebalik bergembira, memilih perkabungan dan berganti ucapan takziah sebagai mengingati hari bersejarah. Tapi ini soal sejarah yang menyangkut Rasulullah, keluarganya, paling tepat, cucu Rasulullah sendiri. Bukankah ini soal yang besar?
Sejarah, tidak kira apa sahaja ceritanya akan menjadi penting. Tidak percaya? Sedang dalam Quran sendiri tersenarai sekian banyak cerita menyangkut sejarah, sebelum diutuskan Rasulullah sebagai Al Khatim Anbiya', cerita mengenai Nabi-Nabi terdahulu (Adam, Sulaiman, Ibrahim, Musa, Isa a.s), kerajaan-kerajaan zaman silam yang diberi rahmat dan diberi peringatan (Saba', Mesir Kuno, Iram, dsb). Makanya, sejarah tetap pelajaran terpenting dalam Quran sebagai panduan hidup manusiawi pada zaman sekarang juga zaman-zaman mendatang.

Masalahnya, tamadun Eropah lebih memahami tragedi Asyura ketimbang umat Islam sendiri. Apa kata mereka?
"A reminder of the blood-stained field of Karbala, where the grandson of the Apostle of God fell at length tortured by thirst and surrounded by the bodies of his murdered kinsmen, has been at anytime since then sufficient to evoke, even in the most lukewarm and heedless, the deepest emotions, the most frantic grief and an exaltation of spirit before which pain, danger and death shrink to unconsidered trifles."
- E.G. Browne (A Literary History of Persia)

"In a distant age and clime the tragic scene of the death of Husain will awaken the sympathy of the coldest reader." "In the history of Islam, especially the life of Imam Husain stand unique, unapproached and unapproachable by anyone. Without his martyrdom, Islam would have extinguished long ago. He was the saviour of Islam and it was due to his martyrdom that Islam took such a deep root, which it is neither possible nor even imaginable to destroy now."
- Edward Gibbon (Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire)

"The best lesson which we get from the tragedy of Karbala is that Husain and his followers were the rigid believers of God, they illustrated that numerical superiority does not count when it comes to truth and falsehood. The victory of Husain despite his minority marvels me."
- Thomas Carlyle (Hero and Hero-worship)
"If Husain fought to quench his worldly desires, (as alleged by certain Christian critics) then I do not understand why his sisters, wives and children accompanied him. It stands to reason therefore that he sacrificed purely for Islam."
- Charles Dickens

Mungkin sebahagian akan sinikal dan membantah untuk apa kita refleks kepada orientalis Barat untuk mencerita kisah sejarah dalam Islam. Bagaimana tidak, mereka juga diiktiraf Quran. Contoh paling ketara menyingkap teori kewujudan alam, teori pembentukan sistem Solar yang bermula dari Big Bang adalah dari masyarakat yang tidak mengEsakan Allah.

Ayatnya "Do those who are disbelievers not see that the heavens and the earth were sewn together and then We unstitched them and that We made from water every living thing? So will they not have faith? (Surah al-Anbiya': 30)"

Jika Quran mengiktiraf keupayaan 'disbelievers' menyingkap persoalan ilmu, mengapa tidak kita? (sudah tentu kita perlu menyiasat kebenarannya terdahulu)

Apa pula kata sarjana Islam mengenai Asyura? Seperti dalam 'post' pertama, dan banyak lagi yang boleh kita jelajah dari pelbagai sumber.
Jika Barat dan Timur mengenali peristiwa tragik ini, bagaimana pula letaknya diri kita?
Pentingkah? Oh, penting, sangat! Terutama menyangkut Nabi dan Qurba (keluarga). Tidak percaya? Kasih sayang kepada keluarga Nabi juga sebagai salah satu syariat di dalam Quran.
"Katakanlah (hai Muhammad), aku tidak meminta upah apa pun dari kalian (atas seruanku), selain kasih sayang di dalam keluarga" (QS: Asy-Syura:23).
Sudahkah kita menyayangi keluarga Rasul?
Tidak mengapa, bukankah tidak kenal maka tak cinta. Moga-moga dalam menyusuri As-Syura yang tidak dikenal, mungkin satu hari kita boleh jatuh cinta, pada Nabi dan juga keluarganya.
