[:ID]MERINDUKAN TUMBUHNYA HEROISME [:en]MISSING THE SPROUT OF HEROISM[:]

[:ID]Oleh: Makmum Nawawi

Sa`d bin Abi Waqqash bertutur, Sebelum kami menghadap Rasulullah SAW untuk pergi ke medan jihad Perang Badar, kulihat saudaraku, Umair bin Abi Waqqash, bersembunyi-sembunyi.

“Kenapa kamu? tanya saya.

“Saya takut kalau dilihat oleh Rasulullah, lalu menganggap saya masih kecil, dan disuruh pulanglah saya. Padahal, saya ingin sekali bisa ikut pergi jihad sehingga Allah menganugerahi saya syahadah (mati syahid), kata Umair.

Kemudian, Umair menyodorkan diri kepada Rasulullah, dan benar saja, beliau menilai Umair masih kecil dan belum cukup umur untuk berjihad. “Pulanglah,”ucap Rasulullah.

Mendengar demikian, Umair menangis, dan akhirnya Rasulullah pun mengizinkannya.

“Kemudian, aku membantu mengikatkan beban senjatanya karena saking kecilnya, dan ternyata Umair terbunuh dalam Perang Badar dalam usia 16 tahun,” kenang Sa’d

Hal senada juga terjadi pada Usamah bin Zaid ketika Perang Uhud, di mana ia dan teman-teman sebayanya, putra- putra para sahabat radhiyallahu `anhum datang menghadap Rasulullah. Mereka ingin ikut terlibat dalam jihad fi sabilillah.

Sebagian mereka diterima Rasulullah dan sebagian lagi ditolak karena usianya yang masih sangat muda, dan Usamah bin Zaid termasuk anak yang tidak diterima. Maka, Usamah pun pulang sambil menangis, ia sangat sedih karena tidak diizinkan ikut berjihad di bawah panji Rasulullah.

Cerita tentang Umair bin Abi Waqqash dan Usamah bin Zaid ini hanya contoh kecil saja dari heroisme besar yang dimiliki para remaja dan kaum belia di kalangan sahabat Rasulullah. Dan, kehadiran mereka serasa menjadi sosok yang terasa asing dan jauh sekali, sekaligus mengiris jiwa, jika kita mendengar dan menyaksikan bejibun anak muda yang justru tenggelam dalam lumpur kemaksiatan, seksual, kekejian, dan kedurhakaan, sibuk dengan kehidupan yang serbaenak dengan tidak usah bersusah payah.

Padahal, kesalihan sebagaimana juga kematian, bukan hanya monopoli orang-orang yang sudah tua dan lanjut usia, melainkan juga terbuka luas untuk digapai oleh generasi muda. Bukankah Nabi memberikan motivasi, ada tujuh golongan yang akan memperoleh naungan Allah ketika tak ada naungan kecuali naungan-Nya, dan salah satunya adalah pemuda yang tumbuh dalam ibadah kepada Allah. (HR Bukhari & Muslim).

Sebelum era agama Nasrani, sejumlah pemuda yang tergabung dalam Ashabul-Kahfi bahkan menjadi pelopor pada zamannya dalam mempertahankan akidah. Firman Allah: Kami ceritakan kisah mereka kepadamu (Muhammad)dengan sebenarnya. Sesungguhnya mereka itu adalah pemuda-pemuda yang beriman kepada Tuhan mereka dan Kami tambahkan kepada mereka petunjuk. (Al-Kahfi: 13).

Menurut Wahbah Zuhaili dalam at-Tafsir al-Munir, ayat ini merupakan isyarat, pemuda lebih kuat untuk menerima kebenaran dan lebih potensial untuk menyambut datangnya hidayah ketimbang orang tua yang sombong dan terbenam dalam agama yang batil. Karena itu, sebagaimana yang disebutkan oleh Ibnu Katsir, yang paling banyak menyambut seruan Allah dan Rasul-Nya adalah pemuda.

Maka, wajar jika hari ini kita merindukan kembali tumbuhnya heroisme di kalangan remaja dan generasi muda Islam.[:en]

Sa’d bin Abi Waqqash said, Before we went to the Prophet Muhammad to go to the battle of Badr, I saw my brother, Umair bin Abi Waqqash, hiding.

“What’s wrong with you?” I asked.

“I am afraid if seen by the Prophet, then thought I am still a child, and told me to go home. In fact, I really want to be able to go to jihad so that Allah will grant me shahadah (martyrdom), Umair said.

Then, Umair offered himself to the Prophet, and sure enough, he considered Umair still small and not old enough to jihad and participates in the battle. “Go home,” said the Prophet.

Hearing that, Umair cried, and finally, the Prophet permitted it.

“Then, I helped tie the burden of his weapon because he was so small, and it turns out Umair was killed in the Battle of Badr at the age of 16 years,” recalls Sa’d

The same thing happened to Osama bin Zayd during the Battle of Uhud, where he and his peers, the sons of the companions Radhiyallahu ‘anhum came to the Prophet. They want to be involved in the jihad fi sabilillah.

Some of them were accepted by the Prophet and some were rejected because they were very young, and Osama bin Zaid was among the children who were not accepted. So, Osama went home crying, he was very sad because he was not permitted to join the jihad under the banner of the Messenger of Allah.

The story of Umair bin Abi Waqqash and Usamah bin Zaid was only a small sample of the great heroism that teenagers and young people had among the Prophet’s companions. And, their presence seems to be a figure that feels estrange and far away, as well as challenging the soul. If we hear and witness thousands of young people who actually drowned in the mud of immorality, sexuality, cruelty, and iniquity, busy with a life that is painless and no hardship at all.

Even though, death will come. It is not only a monopoly of people who are old and elderly but is wide open to be reached by the younger generation. Did the Prophet not provide motivation? There are seven groups that will obtain the shade of Allah when there is no shade except His shade, and one of them is a young man who grows up in the worship of Allah. (Bukhari & Muslim).

Before the Christian era, a number of young people who were members of the Ashabul-Kahf even became pioneers in their time in defending the creed. Allah states: We tell the truth about their story to you (Muhammad). Surely they are young men who believe in their Lord and We add to them instructions. (Al-Kahfi: 13).

According to Wahbah Zuhaili in at-Tafsir al-Munir, this verse is a sign, youths are stronger in accepting the truth and more potential to welcome the arrival of guidance than parents who are arrogant and immersed in vanity religion. Therefore, as mentioned by Ibn Kathir, those who most widely welcome the call of Allah and His Messenger are the youth.

It is natural that today we miss the sprout of heroism among adolescents and young generations of Islam.[:]
