Merindu (9)

Published 23 April 2010 by endangkurnia

Kami menuju kamar masing-masing pada pukul 22.00. Bahagianya aku, untuk kedua kalinya satu kamar dengan Sulis.

Setelah merapikan barang-barang. Kami saling menanyakan kabar keluarga dan aktivitas. Sulis sering skak mat diriku dengan pertanyaan, “Sudah sampai mana dakwahnya?”. Aku bertanya, “Lis, lagu apa yang mau dibawakan?”. “Ya Thoybah, kalau boleh request”.

“Tepat, favorit teh Endang kan. Tapi dengan aransemen baru lho…”. Sulis membawakan cemilan untukku sambil bersholawat. Suaranya yang melengking nan merdu senandungkan lagu yang menjadi saksi bisu aku putuskan berjilbab sewaktu kelas 6 SD. Kami bersholawat.

“Terus, teh Endang mau cerita apa tentang sang kekasih?” tanya Sulis.

“Ada deh…” aku menggoda. “Surprise…”.

Sulis mendekatkan ujung jempol dan telunjuknya sambil mengatakan “Sedikiiit aja…”.

“Banyak juga tak mengapa”. Muka gadis yang mendapat beasiswa di bangku kuliah itu terlihat sumringah.

Sholawat are the prayers of angels and humanity praising and invoking blessing upon to him. We place our hand upon our heart when we speak his most beautiful name, because he is the true human heart—the essence of our own mystical heart, hidden far behind the heart of life throbbing within the human breast. He is not in the desert of Arabia, but in the heart.

“Right, it is in the first time may be? Before I will sing, how about you?” tanya Sulis.

“Ok.” Jawabku.

“Begini saja, teh Endang cerita dulu seperti tadi kemudian dilanjut Sulis dengan sholawat alfu salam, bagaimana?”.

“Setuju. Tepat dengan aflu salam, seribu salam bagi sang kekasih”. “Bagaimana kalau kita Gi-aR Lis? Gladi Resik, singkat saja buat kita”.

Sulis mengangguk dan tersenyum.

Setelah Sulis senandungkan “Sholatun minallah wa alfa salam… ‘alal Musthofa Ahmad syarifiil maqom..”. Aku becerita lagi.

Love him and you will love all persons abundantly. Fail to love him, and you will fail to love anyone truly. Love him who is the perfection of human love, and you will overflow with love for Allah, who is the Source of love. Disappear with ecstatic love into the Prophet of Allah, and you will disappear into Allah in mystic union… He was too gentle to turn people away or to close even slightly the door of his generosity, even when he might have to sacrifice his privacy and family life.

“To be continue by ya thoybah. Matching with your explanation” Sulis berkomentar.

Kini giliran aku yang mengangguk setuju. Setelah itu, ku lanjutkan bercerita kembali.
He is… upon him be blessings and peace, would constantly bless his devoted lovers and visitors with his loving attention, especially when they came to his house to be in his holy presence. As his community grew, there were more and more people who longed to be close to him.

“Di tutup dengan sholawat badar, bagaimana teh?” tanya Sulis.

“Ok. So the last time for me to telling story” jawabku.

Allah Subhanahu Wata ‘Ala also revealed to humanity the principle of sholawat. This revelation gives us unconditional access: sholawat are the perfect vehicles with which to express our love for the Messenger of Allah, and to commune intimately with his divine radiance at any time.

“Perfect” ucap Sulis.

Kita bersalaman dan berpelukkan. Kami kompak mengucap “Ya Allah ridhoilah… Kasih, tersenyumlah…”
