Kyai Jafar dan Terompet Yahudi

Sumber Gambar. http://scripturesight.blogspot.com

Di penghujung tahun, Kyai Saleh kedatangan tamu istimewa dari Pulau Jawa. Kyai Jafar. Beliau adalah sahabat Kyai Saleh sejak masih nyantri. Kyai Jafar datang sebagai kunjungan bela-sungkawa atas kematian Bu Fatima, beberapa bulan yang lalu.

“Maaf, Kyai. Baru kali ini aku bisa mengunjungimu setelah ibu meninggal dunia,” kata Kyai Jafar usai memeluk erat tubuh Kyai Saleh.

Maa fi musykilah (tidak ada masalah). Doamu sudah terlebih dahulu tiba.”

“Jadi, antum tidak mengharap kedatanganku?”

“Hahahaha…Kyai Jafar. Engkau selalu membuatku bisa tertawa lepas. Andai Kyai Barak masih hidup, suasana pasti lebih lengkap.”

“Ngomong-ngomong. Antum tidak berniat menikah lagi?” Sampara yang berada di samping Kyai Saleh tersenyum. Kyai Jafar memang ceria dan cuek.

“Usiaku sudah tua. Aku lebih baik langkah mengikuti Imam Nawawi. Lagi pula, cinta ibu begitu kuat dan aku masih merasa diawasi olehnya.”

Kyai Jafar tersenyum. “Ya, istri yang cerewet memang melahirkan lelaki filosof.” Sampara semakin tersenyum. Dia bahagia melihat canda dua orang Kyai yang sudah berusia sepuh ini.

*****

Hujan yang sejak subuh hari mengguyur kota Makassar akhirnya reda. Kyai Jafar keluar rumah begitu langit mulai cerah. Dia berjalan menyusuri jalan-jalan Kampung Kalimana sembari menyapa warga yang dikenalinya.

Kyai Jafar pulang menjelang senja dengan menggunakan bentor (becak motor). Dia datang dengan membawa 20 batang terompet kertas dan 10 batang terompet plastik. Kyai Saleh mengernyitkan dahi melihat sahabatnya itu. Sampara, Tesa, Ale, dan Yusran yang kebetulan datang berkunjung ke rumah Kyai Saleh juga heran melihat Kyai Jafar.

“Darimana Kyai?” Kyai Saleh menyapa.

“Jalan-jalan sore. Sumpek juga di rumah sejak pagi dikurung hujan.”

“Ini terompet buat apa, Kyai?” Yusran memberanikan diri bertanya.

“Lha. Nanti malam kan tahun baru. Ini untuk meramaikan lah.”

Kyai Saleh tersenyum. Sedangkan Tesa, Yusran, Sampara, dan Ale saling berpandangan. Rasanya aneh melihat seorang kyai membeli terompet untuk menyambut tahun baru. Apalagi, terompet tahun baru sedang ramai diperbincangkan.

“Kyai. Tabe! Banyak penceramah saya dengar melarang meniup terompet di malam tahun baru, karena konon meniru perilaku Yahudi. Benarkah Kyai?” Tanya Tesa.

“Apa Kyai Saleh belum menjelaskan kepada kalian?”

“Kami tidak pernah membahasnya, Kyai. Baru kali ini saya bertanya karena melihat Kyai Jafar membawa terompet itu.”

“Biarlah, Kyai-mu yang jawab. Ilmunya lebih tinggi dari-ku.”

Kyai Saleh tersenyum. “Yahudi memang dikenal sebagai kelompok agama yang menggunakan terompet sebagai tanda memanggil umatnya untuk beribadah. Kalau umat Kristen menggunakan lonceng. Suatu hari, Nabi Muhammad dan sahabat berkumpul di Madinah. Mereka berbincang-bincang tentang cara mengumpulkan umat Islam salat di Masjid.

Ada yang mengusulkan menggunakan umbul-umbul. Ada yang mengusulkan menggunakan terompet. Ada yang mengusulkan menggunakan lonceng. Semuanya ditolak oleh Nabi.

Terompet ditolak karena cara Yahudi. Lonceng ditolak karena cara Nasrani. Diriwayatkan Abdullah bin Zaid pulang dan bermimpi diajari cara azan, lalu mengusulkan kepada Nabi. Nah, ini juga sekaligus menjadi sejarah muasal lafadz Azan. Ini hadis Abu Daud. Ada juga hadis Bukhari, yang menyebutkan bahwa Nabi meminta kepada Bilal untuk bangkit azan dan menolak usulan penggunaan terompet dan lonceng.”

“Nah, itu dengar penjelasan Kyai-mu. Penolakan Nabi terhadap lonceng dan terompet adalah penolakan identitas. Persis seperti konteks hadis Nabi tentang pelihara jengggot dan potong kumis. Itu untuk membedakan dengan orang Yahudi kala itu. Sekarang, yang tiup terompet itu semua orang bukan hanya Yahudi. Yang jenggot bukan hanya umat Islam saja. Dunia kita adalah dunia silang budaya. Saling memberi dan saling menerima.” Kata Kyai Jafar.

Kyai Saleh dan para santri menganggukkan kepala.

“Kamu tahu baju koko yang diklaim sebagai baju muslim saat ini. Itu baju engkoh-engkoh China. Di China namanya baju tui khim. Lalu diadaptasi di Indonesia dengan sebutan baju Koko oleh orang-orang Betawi awalnya. Karena orang Betawi kebanyakan umat Islam dan baju begitu dipakai untuk ke masjid. Akhirnya identik dengan baju muslim. Anak-anak pesantren sekarang pake baju koko semua. Nah, itu disebut sebagai persilangan budaya. Kita tidak bisa menghindari itu.” lanjut Kyai Jafar.

Kyai Saleh tersenyum melihat keempat santrinya melongo. Kyai Jafar tampaknya belum mau berhenti menjelaskan.

“Sunan Kudus berdakwah di masyarakat Hindu yang hormat sapi. Beliau mengajarkan Islam tetapi tetap menghormati sapi. Sampai saat ini, ada kampung di Kudus yang tidak menyembelih sapi. Sunan Kudus itu ahli agama, ilmunya luas, hatinya sejuk. Tidak grasa-grusu. Begitulah cara Islam diperkenalkan di nusantara ini.”

Perbincangan terinterupsi sejenak. Sampara datang membawa cerek berisi kopi dan nampan berisi pisang goreng yang masih hangat.

“Ayo, Kyai. Anak-anak. Silahkan minum!” Kyai Saleh mempersilahkan.

Setelah menyeruput sekali dua kali, Kyai Jafar melanjutkan kalimatnya.

“Dulu, cara belajar kita itu sistem sorogan. Seorang ulama duduk membaca kitab dan dikelilingi oleh santri. Tempatnya biasanya di masjid. Tidak ada sistem klasikal. Tidak ada bangku. Bangku itu tradisi orang Eropa yang Kristen. Belanda datang dan memperkenalkan sekolah dengan bangku segala macam. Perhatikan bangku anak-anak SD itu modelnya mirip dengan bangku gereja. Kita meniru Belanda? Ya. Tapi apa kita menjadi orang Belanda? Tidak. Malah kita menyebut dengan kata sekolah Islam. Kita mengadaptasinya.”

“Kyai. Jadi tidak apa-apa meniup terompet di malam tahun baru? Tidak meniru Yahudi?” Tesa mengulangi pertanyaannya.

“Kalau memang kamu takut akidahmu bergeser ya jangan lakukan. Jangan tiru orang Yahudi,” kata Kyai Jafar.

“Jadi, terompet yang Kyai bawa ini buat apa?”

“Untuk ditiuplah nanti malam.”

“Katanya tidak boleh meniru Yahudi.”

“Sudah, begini saja. Orang Yahudi kan dulu membunyikan terompet untuk menyambut pergantian tahun. Nah, sebaiknya jangan begitu…”

“Maksudnya Kyai?”

“Jangan niatkan untuk menyambut, tetapi untuk melepas tahun yang lewat. Beda kan? Ndak meniru kan? Gitu aja kok repot.”
Kyai Saleh tertawa. Ini khas Kyai Jafar. Nyeleneh dan penuh humor. Para santri pun ikut tertawa.

“Tetapi anakku. Alasan Kyai Jafar membeli terompet yang banyak ini, bukan lah untuk perayaan. Saya kenal sahabatku ini. Tujuan hidupnya adalah kemanusiaan.” Kata Kyai Saleh.

Para santri kebingungan. Kyai Jafar tersenyum kecil.

“Maksudnya, Kyai?”

“Saya tahu. Terompet ini adalah jualan bu Saribanong yang di ujung gang sudut kampung. Kemarin saya lewat di sana. Sejak munculnya desas-desus larangan meniup terompet, dagangannya tidak laku. Saya tahu, Kyai Jafar memborong semua terompet itu, untuk memberi senyum di wajah pedagang kecil yang sedang gundah itu.”

Kyai Jafar kikuk dan merasa terciduk.

“Nah, sudah kubilang kan? Ilmu Kyai Saleh hebat. Dia bahkan bisa menebak apa yang kulakukan.” Kata Kyai Jafar.

“Benarkah begitu, Kyai?” Tesa bertanya untuk meyakinkan.

“Hahahha… aku cuma menduga-duga Kyai. Bukankah antum sangat anti kepada kebijakan apapun yang tidak mempertimbangkan kemanusiaan hanya untuk kepentingan simbol yang masih bisa ditafsirkan lebih bijak?” Kata Kyai Saleh.
Kyai Jafar tersenyum.

“Ya sudah. Terompet ini bagikan ke anak-anak sekitar, ya.” Kata Kyai Jafar kepada para santri.

Hari semakin sore. Waktu Magrib sebentar lagi tiba. Para santri segera pamit meninggalkan rumah Kyai Saleh.

“Kyai, benarkah engkau hanya menduga-duga. Bagaimana engkau bisa tahu kalau aku memborong dagangan perempuan di ujung jalan itu?” Tanya Kyai Jafar ketika suasana telah sepi.

“Karena itu satu-satunya pedagang yang ada di ujung jalan. Pedagang lain sudah tidak ada.”

“Kemana pedagang lainnya?”

Kyai Saleh menarik tangan Kyai Jafar ke arah gudang. Mata Kyai Jafar terbelalak ketika melihat setengah isi gudang adalah terompet.

“Kyai.. antum juga melakukannya?”

“Ilmu kita sama Kyai. Agama ini untuk kemanusiaan. Kita akan melakukan sebisa dan semampu kita untuk menyelamatkan manusia dari ketertindasan manusia lainnya. Dan, kamu sudah menyelesaikan sisa pekerjaanku. Syukran!”

Jika menurut pandangan Islam, manusia dilahirkan kali pertama dalam keadaan fitrah, maka pada dasarnya seluruh manusia tanpa terkecuali juga suci. Seiring perjalanan waktu, tiap manusia dihiasi dengan sejumlah pengalaman yg khas. Ini tentu dalam rangka melarih penampakan kesuciannya. Sebingga menurut saya, lika-liku pandangan dan aksi orang-orang apapun itu, akan kembali pada fitrahnya. Hanya masalah waktu saja, kapan itu akan terjadi. Selamat bung pepi!
