Sunah dan Adab Menyambut Hari Raya

Hubungi Kami: 017-4306422 Nordin atau e-mail kami nordi_jef@yahoo.com.
Sunah dan adab menyambut hari raya Dr Abdul Basit Bin Haji Abdul Rahman, 16 Ogs 2012 Eid al-Fitri atau Hari Raya Fitrah adalah hari yang disyariatkan umat Islam menyambutnya sebagai hari bergembira dan bersyukur di atas nikmat yang Allah SWT anugerahkan kepada hamba-Nya yang berjaya melakukan ibadat pada bulan Ramadan. Oleh itu untuk mendapatkan kesempurnaan sambutan ini, hendaklah mengikut panduan sunnah Rasulullah SAW menyambut Hari Raya, antaranya ialah; 1. Mandi sebelum keluar menunaikan solat Hari Raya. Imam Malik meriwayatkan: “Sesungguhnya Abdullah bin Umar akan mandi pada pagi hari Raya al-Fitri sebelum beliau keluar ke tempat solat hari raya.” Al-Imam al-Nawawi menyebut para ulama‟ telah bersepakat atas sunatnya mandi untuk solat hari raya. 2. Makan sebelum keluar untuk menunaikan solat hari raya ‘Eid al-Fitri dan untuk ‘Eid al-Adha makan selepas solat. Ini berdasarkan hadis yang diriwayatkan oleh al-Imam al-Bukhari daripada Anas bin Malik katanya: “Sesungguhnya Rasulullah SAW tidak keluar pada pagi hari Raya al-Fitri, sehinggalah Baginda makan terlebih dahulu beberapa biji tamar dan baginda memakannya dalam jumlah yang ganjil.” [HR Al-Bukhari: 953]. Sekiranya tidak ada tamar, makanlah sesuatu yang harus dimakan. Al-Imam Ibnu Hajar al-Asqalani mengulas hadis ini dengan berkata: “Ini kerana untuk mengelakkan (anggapan) adanya tambahan dalam berpuasa, ia juga (petunjuk) bersegera mentaati arahan Allah SWT (untuk tidak berpuasa pada hari tersebut).” [Fath al-Bari: 2/446]. 3. Bertakbir pada hari Raya Takbir hari raya adalah termasuk sunnah yang agung berdasarkan firman Allah SWT: Maksudnya: “Dan hendaklah kamu mencukupkan bilangannya dan hendaklah kamu bertakbir mengagungkan Allah atas petunjuknya yang diberikan kepada kamu, supaya kamu bersyukur.” [Al-Baqarah: 185]. Daripada al-Walid bin Muslim katanya: “Aku bertanya kepada al-Auza’ie dan Malik bin Anas tentang menzahirkan takbir pada dua hari raya. Kata mereka berdua: “Ya, adalah Abdullah bin Umar menzahirkan takbir pada hari raya al-Fitri sehinggalah Imam keluar (untuk menunaikan solat raya).” Waktu bertakbir bagi Hari Raya al-Fitri ialah bermula pada malam raya iaitu setelah tenggelamnya matahari pada hari akhir Ramadan sehingga masuknya imam ke tempat solat untuk solat hari raya. 4. Takbir Hari Raya Di dalam Musannaf Ibnu Abi Syaibah dengan sanad yang sahih daripada Ibnu Mas‟ud ra. yang bertakbir pada hari Tasyrik. Kata ulama, “Ada keluasan dalam lafaz takbir ini, mana-mana lafaz boleh dibaca dan amalkan.” Diangkat suara dalam melafazkan takbir bagi lelaki dan tidak bagi perempuan. Ia dilakukan di merata tempat; di masjid, di rumah dan di pasar-pasar. 5. Ucapan Tahniah Pada Hari Raya Termasuk dalam adab berhari raya ialah menyampaikan ucap tahniah sesama muslim dengan sebarang ucapan yang baik 6. Berpakaian baru/cantik di hari raya Daripada Jabir katanya: “Nabi SAW mempunyai sehelai jubah yang baginda akan memakainya untuk dua hari raya dan hari Jumaat.” [Sahih Ibnu Khuzaimah: 1765]. Memakai pakaian cantik pada hari raya ini adalah untuk kaum lelaki. Adapun untuk kaum wanita mereka boleh mengenakan pakaian yang biasa (di sebelah luar/atasnya) seperti sabda Nabi SAW: Maksudnya: “Jangan kamu tegah hamba perempuan Allah daripada masjid Allah, tetapi hendaklah kaum wanita keluar dalam keadaan meninggalkan wangian” [HR: Ahmad dan Abu Daud “Sahih”]. Keluar dengan berpakaian biasa di luar dan tidak bertabarruj berhias dan mengenakan wangian yang boleh dihidu baunya oleh lelaki ajnabi. Sekiranya wanita berkumpul dalam kelompok mereka sahaja tidak mengapa untuk berpakaian cantik. 7. Keluar ke tempat solat melalui jalan lain dan balik melalui jalan yang lain. Daripada Jabir bin Abdillah ra katanya: Maksudnya: “Adalah Nabi SAW, pada hari raya baginda membezakan jalan (pergi dan balik dari solat hari raya).” [Al-Bukhari: 986] Dikatakan terdapat beberapa hikmah dalam perbuatan ini; i. Semoga dua jalan yang berbeza tersebut menjadi saksi di hadapan Allah pada hari kiamat nanti. Hal ini kerana bumi akan membicarakan pada hari kiamat apa yang dilakukan di atasnya daripada perkara-perkara yang baik dan jahat. ii Untuk menzahirkan syiar-syiar Islam. iii. Untuk menzahirkan zikir kepada Allah SWT. iv. Untuk mengambil tahu keperluan orang-orang yang memerlukan sebarang bantuan atau untuk menziarahi sanak saudara dan menghubungkan silaturrahim. 8. Solat Hari Raya. Para ulama berbeza pendapat tentang hukum solat hari raya. Sebahagian mengatakan hukumnya sunat muakkad/ fardhu kifayah dan fardhu ain (wajib), berdosa bagi sesiapa yang meninggalkannya. Inilah pendapat Mazhab Imam Abu Hanifah, pendapat ini dipilih juga oleh beberapa orang ulama semasa. Cara-caranya (kaifiyat) Solat Hari Raya. a- Solat hari raya tidak perlu dilaungkan azan dan iqamah. Ditunaikan sebanyak dua rakaat. Rakaat pertama ada tujuh kali takbir dan rakaat kedua ada lima kali takbir. Hukum bilangan takbir ini adalah sunat bukan wajib. Jika takbir ini tertambah atau terkurang, solat hari raya tetap sah. Sunnah mengangkat tangan ketika takbir-takbir ini kerana thabit daripada para sahabat Nabi SAW. b-Imam membaca pada rakaat yang pertama surah al-A‟la dan pada rakaat kedua membaca al-Ghasyiah berdasarkan hadis riwayat Muslim, atau membaca surah Qaf pada rakaat pertama dan membaca surah al-Qamar pada rakaat kedua, juga berdasarkan hadis riwayat Muslim. Kedua-dua bacaan ini sahih dari Nabi SAW. c- Dilakukan solat raya terlebih dahulu diikuti khutbah. Ini berdasarkan hadis Ibnu Abbas katanya: “Aku menyaksikan Rasulullah SAW menunaikan solat hari raya sebelum khutbah, kemudian baginda berkhutbah.” d- Menyegerakan solat hari raya dan tidak memanjangkannya. Disunatkan menyegerakan solat hari raya selepas terbitnya matahari (selepas waktu larangan). Ibnu Hajar al-Asqalani telah menukilkan di dalam Fath al-Bari: “Telah sepakat para fuqaha‟ bahawa solat hari raya tidak dilaksanakan sebelum atau ketika terbit matahari, sebaliknya ia dilakukan ketika disunatkan solat sunat.” 9. Keluar dengan berjalan kaki ke tempat solat hari raya. Ibnu Majah meriwayatkan daripada Ibnu Umar katanya: “Adalah Rasulullah SAW keluar ke tempat solat Hari Raya dengan berjalan dan baginda pulang darinya juga dengan berjalan.” [Sahih Ibnu Majah “Hasan”] Kata Ibnu al-Munzir: “Orang yang berjalan kaki ke hari raya (tempat solat hari raya) adalah lebih baik dan lebih hampir kepada maksud tawaduk dan tidak mengapa bagi sesiapa yang berkenderaan.” Bagi mereka yang uzur atau rumahnya jauh dari musalla / masjid tidak mengapa naik kenderaan. 10. Wanita yang uzur juga keluar menyaksikan solat hari raya. Para wanita keluar untuk menunaikan solat hari raya adalah termasuk di dalam sunnah Nabi SAW. Untuk menyaksikan perhimpunan umat Islam dan mendengar nasihat (khutbah). Daripada Umm Atiyyah katanya: “Kami disuruh oleh Nabi SAW untuk mengeluarkan mereka (semua wanita) pada hari raya al-Fitri dan al-Adha; wanita yang baru baligh atau hampir baligh, wanita haid dan anak dara. Adapun wanita haid diasingkan daripada tempat sembahyang.” 11. Zakat Fitrah. Nabi SAW menyuruh membayar zakat al-Fitr sebelum solat hari raya. Harus mengeluarkannya sehari atau dua hari lebih awal. Imam al-Bukhari meriwayatkan: “Adalah mereka (sahabat Nabi SAW) mengeluarkan (zakat al-Fitr) sebelum hari raya sehari atau dua hari.” Kesalahan yang dilakukan pada hari raya Pergaulan/ikhtilat yang bebas pada Hari Raya. Ramai dalam kalangan kita telah mengambil mudah akan hal ini. Apabila hari raya datang, mereka menganggap hari raya adalah “hari kebebasan” iaitu hari yang terlepas daripada ikatan agama (agama asing, kita asing). Mereka menganggap hari raya ini merupakn lesen bagi mereka untuk bebas bercampur gaul, bersalaman lelaki dan perempuan yang bukan mahram (Ajnabi: yang halal dinikahi), berpakaian dan berhias sebebasnya bagi perempuan dan rumah-rumah pula dipenuhi dengan alunan muzik dan filem-filem yang melalaikan. Semoga ‘Eidil-Fitri yang kita sambut pada tahun ini dipenuhi dengan keberkatan dan kebajikan. http://www.abuanasmadani.com

Urgent action needed against Penang swiftlet farming

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.
