Tirakat Gus Dur

Jaringansantri.com- Suatu ketika  Gus Dur,  Cak Nur dan Kang Jalaluddin Rakhmat  berada dalam salah satu forum.  Gus Dur saat itu ceramah, tapi malah diserang Kang Jalal. Cak Nur yang ikut disana, ternyata  membela Gus Dur dengan mengatakan, ‘’ Bagaimana kamu bisa meremehkan orang seperti Gus Dur?’’

Cak Nur melanjutkan ceritanya tentang Gus Dur saat menjadi narasumber di PARFI (Persatuan Artis Film Indonesia ).

‘’ Waktu itu PARFI pernah mengundang saya untuk berkomentar tentang perfilman. Terus saya tanya, atas nama apa saya diundang?” tanya Cak Nur.

“Atas nama cendikiawan muslim,” kata panitia.

‘’ Saya tidak punya ilmu untuk mengomentari itu,’’ ungkap Cak Nur  lantas membatalkan acara tersebut.  Setelah membatalkan,  Cak Nur berfikiran kalau dirinya tidak mungkin diundang sendirian. Ia pun menanyakan kepada panitia. Benar saja,  ternyata ada Gus Dur yang  diundang untuk bicara di forum tersebut. Akhirnya Cak  Nur menyetujui undangan, dengan syarat berbicara setelah Gus Dur.

Penglihatan Gus Dur saat itu sudah bermasalah. Sayangnya ada saja orang yang mencelanya sebelum  berbicara. Gus Dur  disebut kyai buta dan lain sebagainya. Saat berbicara di Forum, Gus Dur menceritakan film-film yang pernah ia tonton berbahasa Rusia. Lalu, ia menyampaikan dengan bahasa Rusia juga,  audiens yang hadir bingung semua. Gus Dur menceritkan bagaimana alurnya, nama tokoh-tokoh protagonis dan antagonis dengan detail. Tiba-tiba saja  Gus Dur saat itu menunjukkan sifat dzohir orang yang mencelanya tadi.

Cak Nur pun berkomentar tentang apa yang disampaikan Gus Dur, “Rasanya film itu belum ada dubbingannya atau ada teks terjemahannya. Namun Gus Dur bisa menjelaskan dengan lancar.”

Tentu ini tidak datang tiba-tiba, Cak Nur lalu menunjukkan bagaimana riyadhah dan mujahadah Gus Dur.

“Gus Dur itu punya kebiasaan belajar sampai larut malam,” kata Cak Nur.

Diceritakan, saat masih MTs Gus Dur itu punya nadzar kalau hafal nadzom Alfiyah ibn Malik akan jalan kaki dari Jombang ke Sidoarj untuk mentashihkan hafalannya kepada kyainya yang  ahli alfiyah. Paginya, setelah sampai sana Gus Dur tidak langsung disapa oleh kyainya, baru disapa sore padahal Gus Dur adalah cucu Kyai besar.

Sore itu langsung dicek hafalannya dan Gus Dur  nadzar lagi kalau lulus  hafalan Alfiyah dari Kyai, akan jalan kaki ke makam Mbah Kholil Bangkalan. Gus Dur berhasil dan  melakukan nadzarnya jalan kaki ke Madura dari Sidoarjo. Sebenarnya Gus Dur ingin jalan kaki setelah ziarah makam Mbah Kholil Bangkalan. Ternyata banyak yang tahu kalau ia adalah cucu Hadratus Syekh maka diantarkan pulang ke Jombang.

Gus Dur mencontohkan riyadhah mujahadahnya tidak mudah, tekun belajar kuat sampai malam hingga mengamalkan nadzar jika dirinya berhasil. Kisah-kisah riyadhah mujahadah seperti ini banyak sekali dicontohken oleh kyai-kyai di pesantren. Karena riyadhah mujahadah merupakan ciri khas pesantren untuk membentuk karakter yang ihtimalul adza’(tekun-ulet) dan qanaah setiap santrinya.

  1. Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I found a sea
    shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell
    to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it
    pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!
    LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to
    tell someone!

  2. certainly like your web-site but you have to take a look at the spelling on quite a few of your posts.
    Many of them are rife with spelling problems and I in finding it
    very bothersome to tell the reality on the other hand I’ll definitely come again again.

  3. Hello, I think your site might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your blog in Safari, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, very good blog!

  4. I’ve been browsing online more than 3 hours today, yet
    I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It is pretty worth enough for me. In my view,
    if all web owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be
    a lot more useful than ever before.

  5. Does your website have a contact page? I’m having a tough time locating it but, I’d like to shoot you an email.
    I’ve got some creative ideas for your blog you might be interested in hearing.
    Either way, great site and I look forward to seeing it expand over
    time.

  6. I do not even understand how I finished up right here,
    however I thought this post used to be great. I do not know who you’re however certainly you are going to a well-known blogger should you
    are not already. Cheers!

  7. Have you ever considered publishing an e-book or guest authoring on other sites?
    I have a blog based upon on the same ideas you discuss and would love to have you share some stories/information. I know my audience would enjoy your work.
    If you’re even remotely interested, feel free to shoot me an e-mail.

  8. Heya i’m for the first time here. I found this board and I find It truly helpful & it helped me out a lot.
    I am hoping to provide something back and aid others such as you helped me.

  9. I truly love your blog.. Pleasant colors & theme.
    Did you build this site yourself? Please reply back as
    I’m looking to create my own personal site and would like to find out where you got this from or just what the theme is named.
    Appreciate it!

  10. Its such as you read my thoughts! You seem to know a lot about this, such as you wrote
    the guide in it or something. I believe that you can do
    with a few % to power the message house a bit, but instead
    of that, this is magnificent blog. A great read. I will definitely be back.
