10 HARI TERAKHIR DI BULAN RAMADHAN

selingan ...TENTANG SEPULUH HARI AKHIR DI BULAN RAMADHAN

Dalam Shahihain disebutkan, dari Aisyah radhiallahu 'anha, ia berkata :
"Bila masuk sepuluh (hari terakhir bulan Ramadhan Rasulullah shallallahu 'alaihi wasallam mengencangkan kainnya menjauhkan diri dari menggauli istrinya), menghidupkan malamnya dan membangunkan Keluarganya . " Demikian menurut lafazh Al-Bukhari.
Adapun lafazh Muslim berbunyi :
"Menghidupkan malam(nya), membangunkan keluarganya, dan bersungguh-sungguh serta mengencangkan kainnya.
Dalam riwayat lain, Imam Muslim meriwayatkan dari Aisyah radhiallahu ‘anha :
"Rasulullah shallallahu 'alaihi wasallam bersungguh-sungguh dalam sepuluh (hari) akhir (bulan Ramadhan), hal yang tidak beliau lakukan pada bulan lainnya. "
Rasulullah shallallahu 'alaihi wasallam mengkhususkan sepuluh hari terakhir bulan Ramadhan dengan amalan-amalan yang tidak beliau lakukan pada bulan-bulan yang lain, di antaranya:
Menghidupkan malam: Ini mengandung kemungkinan bahwa beliau menghidupkan seluruh malamnya, dan kemungkinan pula beliau menghidupkan sebagian besar daripadanya. Dalam Shahih Muslim dari Aisyah radhiallahu 'anha, ia berkata:
"Aku tidak pernah mengetahui Rasulullah shallallahu alaihi wasallam shalat malam hingga pagi. "
Diriwayatkan dalam hadits marfu' dari Abu Ja'far Muhammad bin Ali :
"Barangsiapa mendapati Ramadhan dalam keadaan sehat dan sebagai orang muslim, lalu puasa pada siang harinya dan melakukan shalat pada sebagian malamnya, juga menundukkan pandangannya, menjaga kemaluan, lisan dan tangannya, serta menjaga shalatnya secara berjamaah dan bersegera berangkat untuk shalat Jum'at; sungguh ia telah puasa sebulan (penuh), menerima pahala yang sempurna, mendapatkan Lailatul Qadar serta beruntung dengan hadiah dari Tuhan Yang Mahasuci dan Maha tinggi. " Abu Ja 'far berkata: Hadiah yang tidak serupa dengan hadiah-hadiah para penguasa. (HR. Ibnu Abid-Dunya).

Rasulullah shallallahu 'alaihi wasallam membangunkan keluarganya untuk shalat pada malam-malam sepuluh hari terakhir, sedang pada malam-malam yang lain tidak.
Dalam hadits Abu Dzar radhiallahu 'anhu disebutkan:
"Bahwasanya Rasulullah shallallahu 'alaihi wasalam melakukan shalat bersama mereka (para sahabat) pada malam dua puluh tiga (23), dua puluh lima (25), dan dua puluh tujuh (27) dan disebutkan bahwasanya beliau mengajak (shalat) keluarga dan isteri-isterinya pada malam dua puluh tujuh (27) saja. "

Ini menunjukkan bahwa beliau sangat menekankan dalam membangunkan mereka pada malam-malam yang diharapkan turun Lailatul Qadar di dalamnya.

At-Thabarani meriwayatkan dari Ali radhiallahu 'anhu :
"Bahwasanya Rasulullah shallallahu 'alaihi wasallam membangunkan keluarganya pada sepuluh akhir dari bulan Ramadhan, dan setiap anak kecil maupun orang tua yang mampu melakukan shalat. "

Dan dalam hadits shahih diriwayatkan :
"Bahwasanya Rasulullah shallallahu 'alaihi wasallam mengetuk (pintu) Fathimah dan Ali radhiallahu 'anhuma pada suatu malam seraya berkata:
Tidakkah kalian bangun lalu mendirikan shalat ?" (HR. Al-Bukhari dan Muslim)
Beliau juga membangunkan Aisyah radhiallahu 'anha pada malam hari, bila telah selesai dari tahajudnya dan ingin melakukan (shalat) witir.

Dan diriwayatkan adanya targhib (dorongan) agar salah seorang suami-isteri membangunkan yang lain untuk melakukan shalat, serta memercikkan air di wajahnya bila tidak bangun). (Hadits riwayat Abu Daud dan lainnya, dengan sanad shahih.)

Dalam kitab Al-Muwaththa' disebutkan dengan sanad shahih, bahwasanya Umar radhiallahu 'anhu melakukan shalat malam seperti yang dikehendaki Allah, sehingga apabila sampai pada pertengahan malam, ia membangunkan keluarganya untuk shalat dan mengatakan kepada mereka: "Shalat! shalat!" Kemudian membaca ayat ini :
"Dan perintahkanlah kepada keluargamu mendirikan shalat dan bersabarlah kamu dalam mengerjakannya. " (Thaha: 132).

Bahwasanya Nabi shallallahu 'alaihi wasallam mengencangkan kainnya. Maksudnya beliau menjauhkan diri dari menggauli isteri-isterinya. Diriwayatkan bahwasanya beliau tidak kembali ke tempat tidurnya sehingga bulan Ramadhan berlalu.

Dalam hadits Anas radhiallahu 'anhu disebutkan :
"Dan beliau melipat tempat tidurnya dan menjauhi isteri-isterinya (tidak menggauli mereka).
Rasulullah shallallahu 'alaihi wasallam beri'tikaf pada malam sepuluh terakhir bulan Ramadhan. Orang yang beri'tikaf tidak diperkenankan mendekati (menggauli) isterinya berdasarkan dalil dari nash serta ijma'. Dan "mengencangkan kain" ditafsirkan dengan bersungguh-sungguh dalam beribadah.
Mengakhirkan berbuka hingga waktu sahur.
Diriwayatkan dari Aisyah dan Anas uadhiallahu 'anhuma, bahwasanya Rasulullah shallallahu 'alaihi wasallam pada malam-malam sepuluh (akhir bulan Ramadhan) menjadikan makan malam (berbuka)nya pada waktu sahur.Dalam hadits marfu' dari Abu Sa'id radhiallahu 'anhu, ia berkata :
"Janganlah kalian menyambung (puasa). Jika salah seorang dari kamu ingin menyambung (puasanya) maka hendaknya ia menyambung hingga waktu sahur (saja). " Mereka bertanya: "Sesungguhnya engkau menyambungnya wahai Rasulullah ? "Beliau menjawab: "Sesungguhnya aku tidak seperti kalian. Sesungguhnya pada malam hari ada yang memberiku makan dan minum. "(HR. Al-Bukhari).

Ini menunjukkan apa yang dibukakan Allah atas beliau dalam puasanya dan kesendiriannya dengan Tuhannya, oleh sebab munajat dan dzikirnya yang lahir dari kelembutan dan kesucian beliau. Karena itulah sehingga hatinya dipenuhi Al-Ma'ariful Ilahiyah (pengetahuan tentang Tuhan) dan Al-Minnatur Rabbaniyah (anugerah dari Tuhan) sehingga mengenyangkannya dan tak lagi memerlukan makan dan minum.
Mandi antara Maghrib dan Isya'.
Ibnu Abi Hatim meriwayatkan dari Aisyah radhiallahu 'anha :
"Rasulullah shallallahu 'alaihi wasallam jika bulan Ramadhan (seperti biasa) tidur dan bangun. Dan manakala memasuki sepuluh hari terakhir beliau mengencangkan kainnya dan menjauhkan diri dari (menggauli) isteri-isterinya, serta mandi antara Maghrib dan Isya."
Ibnu Jarir rahimahullah berkata, mereka menyukai mandi pada setiap malam dari malam-malam sepuluh hari terakhir. Di antara mereka ada yang mandi dan menggunakan wewangian pada malam-malam yang paling diharapkan turun Lailatul Qadar.
Karena itu, dianjurkan pada malam-malam yang diharapkan di dalamnya turun Lailatul Qadar untuk membersihkan diri, menggunakan wewangian dan berhias dengan mandi (sebelumnya), dan berpakaian bagus, seperti dianjurkannya hal tersebut pada waktu shalat Jum'at dan hari-hari raya.
Dan tidaklah sempurna berhias secara lahir tanpa dibarengi dengan berhias secara batin. Yakni dengan kembali (kepada Allah), taubat dan mensucikan diri dari dosa-dosa. Sungguh, berhias secara lahir sama sekali tidak berguna, jika ternyata batinnya rusak.
Allah tidak melihat kepada rupa dan tubuhmu, tetapi Dia melihat kepada hati dan amalmu. Karena itu, barangsiapa menghadap kepada Allah, hendaknya ia berhias secara lahiriah dengan pakaian, sedang batinnya dengan taqwa. Allah Ta'ala berfirman :"Hai anak Adam, sesungguhnya Kami telah menurunkan kepadamu pakaian untuk menutupi auratmu dan pakaian indah untuk perhiasan. Dan pakaian taqwa itulah yang paling baik. " (Al-A'raaf: 26).
I'tikaf. Dalam Shahihain disebutkan, dari Aisyah radhiallahu 'anha : Bahwasanya Nabi shallallahu 'alaihi wasallam senantiasa beri'tikaf pada sepuluh hari terakhir dari Ramadhan, sehingga Allah mewafatkan beliau. "
Nabi shallallahu 'alaihi wasallam melakukan i'tikaf pada sepuluh hari terakhir yang di dalamnya dicari Lailatul Qadar untuk menghentikan berbagai kesibukannya, mengosongkan pikirannya dan untuk mengasingkan diri demi bermunajat kepada Tuhannya, berdzikir dan berdo'a kepada-Nya.
Adapun makna dan hakikat i'tikaf adalah: Memutuskan hubungan dengan segenap makhluk untuk menyambung penghambaan kepada AI-Khaliq. Mengasingkan diri yang disyari'atkan kepada umat ini yaitu dengan i'tikaf di dalam masjid-masjid, khususnya pada bulan Ramadhan, dan lebih khusus lagi pada sepuluh hari terakhir bulan Ramadhan. Sebagaimana yang telah dilakukan Nabi shallallahu 'alaihi wasallam.
Orang yang beri'tikaf telah mengikat dirinya untuk taat kepada Allah, berdzikir dan berdo'a kepada-Nya, serta memutuskan dirinya dari segala hal yang menyibukkan diri dari pada-Nya. Ia beri'tikaf dengan hatinya kepada Tuhannya, dan dengan sesuatu yang mendekatkan dirinya kepada-Nya. Ia tidak memiliki keinginanlain kecuali Allah dan ridha-Nya. Sembga Alllah memberikan taufik dan inayah-Nya kepada kita. (Lihat kitab Larhaa'iful Ma'aarif, oleh Ibnu Rajab, him. 196-203)

Urgent action needed against Penang swiftlet farming



PrintE-mail

Rebecca Duckett highlights the risks posed by swiftlet farming in the George Town world heritage site in a letter to the Penang Chief Minister.

As a resident of George Town and as a council member of the Penang Heritage Trust, I want to bring to your attention yet again, the problem of swiftlet farming in our urban areas. The National Guidelines For Swiftlet Breeding are to be presented to Cabinet very soon and there has been no public discussion whatsoever with stakeholders, residents or NGOs. This lack of transparency has to be addressed before any Guidelines for Swiftlet breeding can be passed.

According to the June 2005 newsletter of the Malaysian Swiftlet Farmers Association, over 10% of houses - 400 houses- in George Town have been converted into swiftlet farms. The latest casual count estimates that these numbers could be closer to 20% of houses in George Town.

We do not oppose swiftlet farming in general; it is a very lucrative business which brings in approximately RM 1.5 billion per year. However, the damage urban swiftlet farming in George Town is doing to our "intangible heritage", by moving people out of buildings in order to open swiftlet farms, and to our "tangible heritage" by destroying the original features of the “exceptional range of shophouses and townhouses” that gave us our WHS listing in the first place is too great to be ignored.

Swiftlet farming encourages swiftlets to nest in a particular house, in order to harvest the nests that they build there. These nests are then sold on at an extremely lucrative price, to be used as the main ingredient in birds nest soup. We are not opposing the practice of swiftlet farming in general but we want it relocated from George Town into less populated, agricultural areas, for the following reasons:

1) Health concerns, including but not limited to:

- Cryptococcus
Dried bird droppings and bird’s nests have been known to harbour the yeast spore Cryptococcus, which ideally forms colonies at 20 - 37°C (perfect for Georgetown) and which is responsible for infections in human beings. Inhalation of Cryptococcus spores cause lung infections, cryptococcal meningitis and pneumonia in healthy children and adults, and is particularly dangerous to anyone who is immuno-compromised.
King, Dr. John W. and DeWitt, Meredith L., “Cryptococcosis,” http://emedicine.medscape.com/article/215354-overview, October 30th, 2009

- Avian Flu
Avian flu, or H5N1, is a rare but severe disease that can be fatal. The last person diagnosed with avian flu was in Vietnam on 16th March of this year. According to the WHO (World Health Organization), “all birds are thought to be susceptible to infection with avian influenza viruses”. It is possible that the avian flu virus could be introduced to swiftlets in George Town from migratory waterfowl, which scientists believe are “now carrying the H5N1 virus in its highly pathogenic form, sometimes over long distances.”

The WHO states: “Japan, the Republic of Korea, and Malaysia have controlled their outbreaks and are now considered free of the disease. Elsewhere in Asia, the virus has become endemic in several of the initially affected countries.” However, there is no reason to suggest that swiftlets coming into contact with infected migratory birds from other parts of Asia will not contract H5N1. Living in such close proximity to one another, contaminated swiftlets would quickly transfer the disease between themselves, increasing the chances for human infection either via direct contact with contaminated birds or contaminated feces, the two most common sources of infection. World Health Organisation, “Avian influenza “bird flu”,” http://www.who.int/mediacentre/factsheets/avian_influenza/en/#countries, February 2006

- Dengue Fever

Pools of water created by swiftlet farmers to ensure an ideal humidity and temperature for the birds also create perfect breeding grounds for mosquitos, including Aedes Mosquitos, which carry Dengue Fever. Outbreaks in George Town on specific streets have recently been very common.

2) The danger swiftlet farming poses to George Town’s Unesco status:

- The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (Unesco) seeks to encourage the identification, protection and preservation of cultural and natural heritage around the world considered to be of outstanding value to humanity. George Town’s World Heritage Site status is not just a label that will increase tourism, but a treaty signed to conserve the unique “intangible heritage” of George Town.

However, homes that are converted into birdhouses suffer irreparable damage, as original windows, doors, plasterwork and features are removed, and sprinkler systems are set up to keep the house humid. This not only causes water damage, damp and rot to that house, but also to adjacent properties, thereby threatening the “unique architectural and cultural townscape without parallel anywhere in East and Southeast Asia...in particular [the] exceptional range of shophouses and townhouses” which gave George Town WHS status in the first place.

Puan Maimunah, as Acting General Manager to the George Town World Heritage Office, has stated that: “personally, the swiftlet industry poses a conflict to the World Heritage Site listing, and possibly needs to be relocated”. If action is not taken against urban swiftlet farming, and George Town “loses the characteristics which determined its inscription on the World Heritage List” it may be placed on the List of World Heritage in Danger or have its status as a World Heritage Site revoked. The Site listing undoubtedly brings more tourism and therefore more money to our city. The loss of our architecture and/or listing would negatively impact on tourism and harm the economy of George Town.

3) Noise pollution:

- The sound systems used to attract swiftlets by playing amplified birdsong continuously constitutes noise pollution, which is a nuisance for residents of and visitors to George Town. However, in recent months, the main source of noise pollution is the birds themselves because numbers have soared and are now out of control. The sky above residences in George Town are full of birds emitting piercing sounds especially in the early hours of morning, late afternoon and evening.

Responsibility of the Penang state government and its departments:

The Penang State Government controls the future of George Town. The decisions made now have long term consequences. In order to address these consequences, we urgently request that the State Government of Penang keeps to and enforces, the terms of the extended moratorium on Swiftlet breeding in George Town, that states that operators cannot start any new swiftlet farms in George Town. The moratorium was set up to halt the proliferation of swiftlet houses in George Town, not as a open bill for them to proliferate freely. The breeders are openly setting up new farms all over George Town. By condoning and allowing this to happen the State Government and MPPP accepts that it is responsible for any negative impact on public health and environment.

We request that the State Government creates a heft annual tax to be paid by each individual urban swiftlet farm until they have moved from the urban areas of George Town on or before the deadline set by the State Government. This tax creates a fund which can then be used when an outbreak of Avian Flu H5N1, Crytococcus or other disease relating to birds, breaks out enabling the State Government to act on any emergency measures needed for this outbreak or environmental disaster cleanup. For the swiftlet farmers, this tax payment will mark their dedication to the maintenance of their farms health and safety measures and further reinforces their responsibility and belief that swiftlet farming in urban areas amongst a dense human population, poses no dangers to humans. Non payment of this tax allows the State Government to forcibly close down the swiftlet farm.

We also insist that in addition, the State Government as a whole, with the Heads of the Veterinary Department and Public Health, be made personally responsible for any environmental and health and safety issues that will arise from the spiralling increase in the population of swiftlets over George Town and the environmental disaster that will take place within the next few years, if swiftlet farms are not removed immediately from our urban areas. The State Government and the Heads of the Veterinary Department and Public Health will also be personally responsible to pay any compensation required in events of death from any bird related disease, outbreak of disease, as well as the loss of investment made by stakeholders who have put huge investments into the belief that George Town will benefit from its Unesco World Heritage Status and is currently being marketed as a tourist destination and world class heritage site by the Penang State Government. Loss of investment should also include, but not be limited to, being forced to move from buildings because of an individuals fear to his/her own personal health and safety.

Laws are being enforced by the State Government on developers, on residents, on landlords that are trying to revitalise George Town as a residential, cultural, heritage and tourist hub, yet swiftlet farms are being allowed to proliferate freely, beyond the realms of law. The State Government must act with a balanced hand.

I would request your immediate assistance in lobbying the Malaysian Government to sign into law, guidelines explicitly prohibiting swiftlet farming in George Town and urban areas, and to act on bringing current owners of swiftlet farms in urban areas to justice. The health and safety of the rakyat and Malaysia's precious environment should be foremost in any Government initiative. Moving swiftlet farming out of George Town and urban areas is in keeping with the State Government of Penang's initiative for a "Cleaner, Greener, Penang" and must be viewed with long term benefit to all the rakyat, all cultures, all tangible and intangible heritage in George Town and our urban areas.
