[:ID]KEDERMAWANAN RASULULLAH[:en]THE GENEROUSITY OF MUHAMMAD [:]

[:ID]Sayyidina Umar bin Khattab bercerita, suatu hari seorang laki-laki datang menemui Rasulullah SAW untuk meminta-minta, lalu beliau memberinya. Keesokan harinya, laki-laki itu datang lagi, Rasulullah juga memberinya.

Hari berikutnya, lelaki itu datang lagi dan kembali meminta, Rasulullah pun memberinya. Pada keesokan harinya, lelaki itu datang kembali untuk meminta-minta, Rasulullah lalu bersabda, “Aku tidak mempunyai apa-apa saat ini. Tapi, ambillah yang kau mau dan jadikan sebagai utangku. Kalau aku mempunyai sesuatu kelak, aku yang akan membayarnya.”

Sahabat Umar lalu berkata, “Wahai Rasulullah janganlah memberi di luar batas kemampuanmu.” Namun, Rasulullah tidak menyukai perkataan Umar tadi. Tiba-tiba, datang seorang laki-laki dari Anshar sambil berkata, “Ya Rasulullah, jangan takut, terus saja berinfak. Jangan khawatir dengan kemiskinan.” Mendengar ucapan laki-laki tadi, Rasulullah tersenyum, lalu beliau berkata kepada Umar, “Ucapan itulah yang diperintahkan oleh Allah kepadaku.” (HR Turmudzi).

Jubair bin Muth’im bertutur, ketika ia bersama Rasulullah SAW, tiba-tiba orang-orang mencegat dan meminta dengan setengah memaksa sampai-sampai beliau disudutkan ke sebuah pohon berduri. Kemudian, salah seorang dari mereka mengambil mantelnya. Rasulullah berhenti sejenak dan berseru, “Berikan mantelku itu! Itu untuk menutup auratku. Seandainya aku mempunyai mantel banyak (lebih dari satu), tentu akan kubagikan pada kalian.” (HR Bukhari).

Ummu Salamah, istri Rasulullah SAW bercerita, suatu hari Rasulullah masuk ke rumahku dengan muka pucat. Aku khawatir beliau sedang sakit. “Ya Rasulullah, mengapa wajahmu pucat begini?” tanyaku. Rasulullah menjawab, “Aku pucat begini bukan karena sakit, melainkan karena aku ingat uang tujuh dinar yang kita dapat kemarin sampai sore ini masih berada di bawah kasur, dan kita belum menginfakkannya.” (HR Al-Haitsami dan hadistya sahih).

Siti Aisyah RA berkata, suatu hari, ketika sakit, Rasulullah SAW menyuruhku bersedekah dengan uang tujuh dinar yang disimpannya di rumah. Setelah menyuruhku bersedekah, beliau lalu pingsan. Ketika sudah siuman, Rasulullah bertanya kembali, “Uang itu sudah kau sedekahkan?”. “Belum, karena aku kemarin sangat sibuk,” jawabku.

Rasulullah SAW bersabda, “Mengapa bisa begitu, ambil uang itu!”

Begitu uang itu sudah di hadapannya, Rasulullah lalu bersabda, “Bagaimana menurutmu seandainya aku tiba-tiba meninggal, sementara aku mempunyai uang yang belum kusedekahkan? Uang ini tidak akan menyelamatkan Muhammad seandainya ia meninggal sekarang, sementara ia mempunyai uang yang belum disedekahkan.” (HR Ahmad).

Beberapa kisah di atas hanyalah sekilas jejak kedermawanan Nabi Muhammad SAW. Kisah-kisah lainnya bagaikan gunung pasir tertinggi yang takkan pernah sanggup diimbangi oleh siapa pun, termasuk para sahabat terdekatnya pada masa beliau masih hidup. Sahabat-sahabat Rasulullah hanya bisa meniru kedermawanan yang diajarkan Baginda Rasul itu, yang kemudian menambah panjang jejak sejarah kedermawanan yang dicontohkan Nabi dan para sahabatnya.

Indah nian jejak-jejak kedermawanan Nabi Muhammad SAW, lebih indah lagi apa-apa yang dijanjikan Allah atas apa yang diberikan di jalan-Nya. Karena itu, seluruh sahabat pada masa itu berlomba-lomba mengikuti jejak Nabi dalam segala hal, termasuk kedermawanan. Semoga, jejak kedermawanan itu terus terukir pada umat Muhammad hingga kini, selama kita masih terus meleburkan diri pada rantai jejak indah itu, dan mengajarkannya kepada anak-anak dan penerus kehidupan ini.

The next day, the man came again and again asked, the Prophet gave him. The next day, the man came back to beg, the Messenger of Allah said, “I have nothing now. But, take what you want and make it my debt. If I have something later, I will pay for it.”

 

Umar’s friend then said, “O Messenger of Allah, do not give beyond your means.” However, the Prophet did not like Umar’s words. Suddenly, came a man from Ansar while saying, “O Messenger of Allah, don’t be afraid, just keep on infusing. Don’t worry about poverty.” Hearing the words of the man earlier, the Prophet smiled, then he said to Umar, “That is what Allah has commanded me.” (HR Turmudzi).

 

Jubair ibn Mut’im said, when he was with the Messenger of Allāh, suddenly people intercepted and asked half-forcefully that he was cornered to a thorny tree. Then, one of them took his coat. The Prophet paused and exclaimed, “Give me my coat! That is to cover my nakedness. If I had many coats (more than one), I would have shared it with you.” (HR Bukhari).

 

Umm Salamah, the wife of the Prophet Muhammad told, one day the Prophet entered my house with a pale face. I’m afraid he is sick. “O Messenger of Allah, why is your face pale like this?” I asked. The Prophet replied, “I am pale like this not because of illness, but because I remember the seven dinars that we got yesterday until this afternoon are still under the mattress, and we have not yet donate them.” (Al-Haitsami and the hadiths are valid).

 

Siti Aisyah RA said, one day, when he was sick, the Messenger of Allāh ordered me to give alms with the seven dinars he kept at home. After telling me to give alms, he then fainted. When he regained consciousness, the Prophet asked again, “Have you donated the money?” “Not yet, because I was very busy yesterday,” I replied.

 

Rasulullah SAW said, “Why is that so, take the money!”

 

Once the money was in front of him, the Messenger of Allah then said, “What do you think if I suddenly died, while I had money that had not been used? This money would not save Muhammad if he died now, while he had money that had not been given.” (Ahmad).

Some of the stories above are only a glimpse of the generosity of the Prophet Muhammad. Other stories are like the highest volcanoes that no one will ever be able to match, including their closest friends at the time of his life. The companions of the Messenger of Allah could only imitate the generosity that the Apostle taught, which then added to the long traces of the history of generosity exemplified by the Prophet and his companions.

 

The beauty of the traces of the generosity of the Prophet Muhammad, is more beautiful what Allah promised for what was given in His way. Therefore, all the companions at that time competed to follow in the footsteps of the Prophet in all things, including generosity. Hopefully, the trace of generosity will continue to be etched on the people of Muhammad until now, as long as we continue to merge into the beautiful trail chain, and teach it to the children and successors of this life.
