EID MUBARAK AND PASCAL LAW

Hospitality is a tool to expand sustenance and extend our life. The larger the cross-sectional area and the greater the contents, the greater the pressure that can be faced.

EID MUBARAK AND PASCAL LAW

If the pressure is a force (push) that remains perpendicular to the unit area. Then the smaller the sectional area of the force the greater the pressure produced and vice versa. If F is the push force (impetus) acting on the surface of the cross-section A, then the pressure P is formulated as follows: P = F / A

In the SI system, the force is measured in Newton and the area is measured in m2. Thus, the unit of pressure is N / m2 also referred to as the Pascal or Pa unit, in honor of the French physicist Blaise Pascal (1623-1662).

Here’s an example of applying the concept of stress to everyday events:

  • In the truck, most of the vehicle’s weight pressure is centered on the rear axle so that the rear wheels are mounted double to prevent the tires from collapsing and the roads become damaged;
  • The foundation of the tall building is made as wide as possible so as not to collapse due to the enormous pressure from the building;
  • All cutting tools such as knives, machetes, and axes are sharply shaped at the cutting edge so that the cross-sectional area is reduced and the resulting pressure increases.

Celebrating Eid with the ordinance that covers and encompasses the necessities of life as a whole, both spiritual and physical. In Southeast Asia especially Indonesia Idul Fitri themed friendship, on this day we met with relatives and friends. Describes unity as a symbol of brotherhood.

If before this we as a human walk alone, the relationship is tenuous and only cooperate in incidental circumstances, especially when each has felt pressed, squeezed and thrown. Let us strengthen our brotherhood.

So on this holy day, we ask the prayer to Allah Almighty, hopefully, the God pointed at the hearts of the Muslims, especially the leaders, in order to mobilize the unity and unity of people who can raise the degree of the Muslims to a more perfect level and better than the past year.

Therefore, let us simultaneously utter the words “Minal ‘Aidin Wal Faizin” a spark of a soul filled with hope and optimism, hopefully, God makes us belong to the group of people who return (from the struggle) with a victory.

IDUL FITRI DAN HUKUM TEKANAN PASCAL

Silaturahmi adalah alat untuk memperluas rezeki dan memperpanjang umur kita. Semakin luas penampang dan solid isinya maka semakin besar tekanan yang mampu dihadapi.

IDUL FITRI DAN HUKUM TEKANAN PASCAL

Jika tekanan adalah gaya (dorongan) yang tetap tegak lurus pada satuan luas. Maka semakin kecil luas penampang yang dikenai gaya semakin besar tekanan yang dihasilkan dan sebaliknya. Jika F adalah gaya tekan (dorongan) yang bekerja pada permukaan dengan luas penampang A, maka besar tekanan P dirumuskan sebagai berikut : P=F/A

Dalam system SI, gaya diukur dalam newton dan luas diukur dalam m2. Dengan demikian, satuan tekanan adalah N/m2 disebut juga sebagai satuan Pascal atau Pa, untuk menghormati fisikawan Perancis, Blaise Pascal (1623-1662).

Berikut contoh penerapan konsep tekanan pada peristiwa sehari-hari :

  • Pada truk, sebagian besar berat tekanan kenderaan berpusat pada as belakang sehingga roda belakang dipasang ganda untuk mencegah ban amblas dan jalan menjadi rusak;
  • Pondasi bangunan tinggi dibuat selebar mungkin agar tidak amblas akibat tekanan sangat besar dari bangunan tersebut;
  • Semua alat pemotong seperti pisau, golok, dan kapak dibuat tajam pada ujung pemotongnya agar luas penampangnya berkurang dan tekanan yang dihasilkan bertambah.

Merayakan Idul Fitri dengan tata cara yang mencakup dan melingkupi kebutuhan hidup kebutuhan manusia secara keseluruhan, baik yang bersifat rohaniah maupun jasmaniah. Di Asia Tenggara terutama Indonesia Idul Fitri bertemakan silaturahmi, pada hari ini kita bertemu dengan sanak saudara dan handai tolan.  Melukiskan tentang kesatuan dan persatuan serta menjadi lambang persaudaraan.

Jika sebelum ini kita selaku manusia berjalan sendiri-sendiri, hubungan yang renggang serta hanya bekerja sama dalam keadaan insidentil, terutama apabila masing-masing sudah merasa terdesak, terpepet dan terdepak. Mari kita perkuat ukhuwah kita.

Ini semua memperkuat “penampang” kita sebagaimana telah dijelaskan oleh Pascal melalui hukum tekanan. Silaturahmi adalah alat untuk memperluas rezeki dan memperpanjang umur kita. Semakin luas penampang dan solid isinya maka semakin besar tekanan yang mampu dihadapi.

Maka di hari raya yang suci ini kita mohonkan doa kepada Allah Azza wa jalla, mudah-mudahan DIA menunjuki hati kaum muslimin, terutama pemimpin-pemimpin dan pemuka-pemukanya, supaya menggalang kesatuan dan persatuan umat yang dapat mengangkat derajat kaum muslimin ketingkat yang lebih sempurna dan lebih baik daripada tahun yang lampau.

Oleh karena itu, mari kita serentak mengucapkan kata-kata “Minal ‘Aidin Wal Faizin” sebuah cetusan jiwa yang diliputi pengharapan dan optimism, mudah-mudahan Tuhan menjadikan kita termasuk dalam golongan orang-orang yang kembali (dari perjuangan) dengan membawa kemenangan.

THE MOMENT OF HAPPINESS

Humans may try and may fail. But there is a blessing behind that failure. I guess I just do not understand that yet.

THE MOMENT OF HAPPINESS

Inside we have a labyrinth. There we crash and keep going through it. Strangled, and uncertain. But, if we get through it, we will feel happier.

The butterfly effect is a sensitive dependence on the initial conditions in which small changes in one creature from the deterministic nonlinear system can lead to substantial differences in later states.

The whole incident in the universe is a series of random events, according to research by Edward Norton Lorenz in 1961. Using the help of computer simulations. Lorenz predicted the weather, initially, he rounded the number obtained into the number 0.506. But when he entered the more complete decimal number is 0.506127. Lorenz got a completely different result, which then surprised Lorenz, in fact, the figure is in practice equivalent to a flutter of butterfly wings.

The simulation shows that the flutter of butterfly wings can cause or prevent a tornado storm, it is amazing. Lorentz’s findings are further named the butterfly effect. Since the calculations used by Lorentz are based on random events, many experts try to interpret the phenomenon of the butterfly effect in human life.

So many events can happen to someone from other possibilities. All possible combinations of events that a person may experience are random but interconnected phenomena.

Any events that occur can open or close opportunities for the occurrence of other larger events. Because the possibilities experienced by a person also affect and be influenced by the possibilities experienced by others.

Life must be lived as play (Plato)

So all the people in this world seem to be in an infinite space with a combination of limited possibilities. The funny thing is that we, as human beings, can only mobilize themselves, perhaps what humans can do is a butterfly’s flutter. However, a simple movement, a momentum still provides an opportunity for the creation of important events in our lives.

Perhaps because of that also, in religion, the intention is very important. If thought carefully it may also be the cause that God’s good intentions have been counted rewarded. The Almighty God who is able to read the movements in the deepest hearts of His creatures.

The Most Gracious and Most Merciful has promised. For the sake of time. Surely we humans are in a loss. Except those who are advised in kindness and patience. So all my friends, we move in motion, the universe will tremble because of our movement.

KISAH SEORANG PENGGALI SUMUR

Kebahagiaan terbesar seorang penggali sumur adalah ketika menemukan air

KISAH SEORANG PENGGALI SUMUR

Ketika hidup semakin kering dan kerontang akan hikmah, betapa Abu selalu mengingat Tengku Salek Pungo. Sekitar 6 tahun lalu ketika Abu berangkat meninggalkan beliau di Lhokseumawe dia berpesan kepada Abu. “Dalam bekerja kita jangan terlalu melihat keatas nanti kita menjadi pengiri dengki, dan juga jangan terlalu melihat ke bawah nanti menjadi sombong akan tetapi lihatlah ke depan untuk memacu diri lebih berkembang”

Jauh hari sebelumnya, sekitar tahun 2006 diawal perjumpaan kami, Tengku Salek Pungo pernah bertanya kepada Abu.  Pekerjaan apa yang paling dia segani di dunia ini? Yang orang-orang yang mengerjakan pekerjaan itu paling dikagumi oleh Tengku Salek Pungo. Abu tidak tahu, tapi tidak salah dengan berusaha sok tahu. Abu mengajukan bermacam profesi seperti dokter, bidan, perawat, pilot, guru, PNS, ilmuwan, ulama, sampai presiden dan kesemuanya itu ditolak oleh Tengku Salek pungo.

Akhirnya Abu menyerah dan bertanya sebenarnya apa profesi yang paling dikagumi oleh Tengku Salek Pungo. Ia tersenyum dan menjawab penggali sumur. Sudah pasti Abu menanyakan apa sebabnya akan tetapi Tengku Salek Pungo menggeleng dan mengatakan bahwa Abu harus mencari sendiri jawabannya. Hari ini Abu teringat, dan Tengku Salek Pungo sudah sekota dengan Abu lagi, maka hari ini Abu merasa harus mencari tahu maksud pertanyaan Tengku Salek Pungo.

Kebetulan Abu belum lama ini bertemu dengan bang Mur seorang “freelance” penggali sumur. Suatu profesi yang sudah semakin langka di zaman ini, mengingat begitu kencangnya arus pemasangan sumur bor dan semakin terpercayanya PDAM. Bang Mur menurut profile yang ia ceritakan berprofesi sebagai seorang pekerja “seraburan” yang professional. Oleh karena pekerjaan menggali sumur sering liburnya dari pada bekerjanya. Maka Abu dengan gaya reportase amatir mencoba mewawancarai bang Mur. Kita lewatkan sesi basa-basinya, Abu langsung menceritakan cerita pokoknya.

Abu (A). “Sudah berapa lama bang Mur menjadi seorang freelancer penggali sumur?

Bang Mur (B). “Sudah lama bu, semenjak Abang SMP, terkadang kalau tidak ada proyek gali sumur. Abang juga mengerjakan “proyek gali lobang tutup lobang.”

Abu (A). “Bisa tidak bang Mur menceritakan suka duka sebagai seorang penggali sumur?

Bang Mur (B). “Lebih banyak suka dari pada dukanya Abu, terutama begitu menemukan air, rasanya bahagia sekali.”

Abu (A). “Apa yang bang Mur lakukan selama mengali sumur?”

Bang Mur (B). “Lakukan apa? Ya menggali ke bawah tanah terus kalau kalau sudah selesai ya naik keatas.”

Menarik ini, Abu teringat pesan Tengku Salek Pungo, “dalam bekerja kita jangan terlalu melihat keatas nanti kita menjadi pengiri dengki, dan juga jangan terlalu melihat ke bawah nanti menjadi sombong akan tetapi lihatlah ke depan untuk memacu diri lebih berkembang”

Abu (A). “Bagaimana jika bang Mur dalam bekerja jika melihat kedepan?”

Bang Mur (B). “Melihat kedepan? Yang kelihatan hanya dinding sumur, ya kapan kerjanya? ada-ada aja Abu Nawas ini, hehehe.” (bang Mur tertawa riang).

Abu (A). “Berarti abang dalam bekerja tidak bisa melihat ke depan?”

Bang Mur (B). “Ya bisalah, tapi untuk apa? Nanti pekerjaan abang tidak selesai-selesai.” (Menarik ini, ternyata konsep Tengku Salek Pungo tidak berlaku kepada bang Mur).

Dan ketika Abu Nawas sedang mewawancara bang Mur , seorang anak datang sambil menanggis, ada apa ini pikir Abu.

Anak (C). “Ayah, adik bulan ini belum bayar uang sekolah. Kata ayah kemarin hari ini mau bayar uang sekolah.”

Bang Mur (B). “Oh, Iya sekarang ayah akan kesekolah untuk membayar SPP kamu. Abu Abang pamit dulu ya, biasa ngurus anak dulu.”

Abu Nawas pun pamit dari tempat bang Mur, hanya setelah dipikir-pikir Abu Nawas heran anak bang Mur sekolah, dan ini Ramadhan dimana seluruh sekolah libur. Jadi kalau bang Mur pergi ke sekolah untuk membayar SPP memangnya sekolah masih buka apa tidak ya? Atau zaman sekarang dengan segala dana BOS apakah SPP masih ada? Dan setelah Abu Nawas pikir-pikir lagi, ternyata inilah sebabnya Tengku Salek Pungo mengagumi penggali sumur, oleh karena konsepnya yaitu Atas, bawah, depan. Tidak bisa diterapkan kepada seorang penggali sumur.

Tiba-tiba Abu merasa rindu dengan Tengku Salek Pungo, kira-kira beliau di Lhokseumawe sana sehat-sehat saja tidak ya? Sekilas terbersit dalam hati Abu, apakah beliau masih hidup? Sudah lama Abu tidak bertemu dengan beliau. Sudah lama sekali, kami tidak saling mengirim kabar berita. Entahlah, semoga beliau disana baik-baik saja.

SOLEMN

This world, time, like a stream of water, is sometimes deflected by a piece of rubble, by a gentle breeze.

SOLEMN

Let time be a circle, which surrounds itself. Thus, the world repeats itself, precisely, forever.

Usually, people do not know that they will live their lives again. Merchants do not know that they will bid and bid again. Politicians will not know that they will shout from the pulpit to the pulpit over and over in the course of time. Parents enjoy their children’s first laugh as if they will not hear back. A newlywed couple who first made love shyly dressed, gawked by the smooth thighs, the soft nipples.

How do they know that every secret leap, every touch will be repeated endlessly, just like before?

A city, a universe, so it happens. How do workers know that each sheet of money, each bundle of money, each stamp, every damage occurring on the way back to their pockets?

At night, the workers went home or stopped at the coffee shop, shouting joyfully with friends, caressing each of those precious moments as caressing the temporary emeralds.

How did they know that nothing was temporary, that everything could come back? Exactly an ant that circles the thread of a Crystal lamp, knowing that it will return to its starting point.

In a world where time is a circle, every handshake, every kiss, every birth, every word will repeat exactly. So is the case when two friends stop being friends. When the family breaks down. When the rotten words come out of the mouth of the arguing husband and wife. When the chance of reconciliation becomes vanishing with jealous fire, or the revealed sin when the promise is not fulfilled.

And because things will repeat themselves in the future, then what happens today has also happened millions of times before. Some people in every city, in their dreams, vaguely realize that everything they dream has happened in the past. They are people whose lives are unhappy. They feel that their wrong judgments, wrong actions, and misfortune have taken place in the previous rounds of time.

In a quiet night, he wrestled with a blanket, unable to sleep, banged on the knowledge that they could not change a single action, not even one gesture. The mistakes they have made will be repeated exactly in this life, as in previous lives.

In fact, if he thinks. Human is God’s creation, part of the universe. The universe created with the same energy when it is destroyed, then blessed are solemn. “And seek help through patience and prayer, and indeed, it is difficult except for the humbly submissive [to Allah ]. Who are certain that they will meet their Lord and that they will return to Him.” Surah Al-Baqarah [2:45-46] – Al-Qur’an al-Kareem

This world, time, like a stream of water, is sometimes deflected by a piece of rubble, by a gentle breeze. Either now or later, the cosmic movement will cause the creek to turn from the mainstream to the previous stream, but eventually, to the upper reaches, it will lead to.

DONNARUMMA THE TRAITOR

Milan will go forward, Milan will definitely forward! By removing the poisonous snake from the team. No doubt Donnarumma (may) have a glorious career in the future, but he will never be the same again in the eyes of the people, whoever he is.

DONNARUMMA THE TRAITOR

When asked if greed is good? Usually, greedy people will be good at putting up sentences. The human desire for something better and human ambition has many good things in the world. Leave the comfort zone is part of greed, we will never know to what extent the desire will be satisfied if the prevailing is “greed is good.”

A few weeks ago we witnessed a beauty when Francesco Totti ended his lifelong career with Roma. Today we remember how difficult it is to do in the world of football. Moreover, when Gianluigi Donnarumma refused to extend contact with Milan. The loyalty we have seen to Paolo Maldini, Franco Baresi, even Javier Zanetti has faded seemingly in Serie-A. Is this all a sign of greed?

What’s wrong with Milan’s management efforts? Nothing. He was deployed in the first team at the age of 16, became a star and can strengthen the Italian national team at the age of 18 years. He was offered a contract of 5 million euros per year for 5 years. Which is him, Donnarumma will be the third highest paid goalkeeper in the world, just under Manuel Nuer (Bayern Muenchen) and David De Gea (Manchester United). Imagine as an 18-year-old teenager he would have been paid over Italian legend Gianluigi Buffon. If anyone can not be blamed for this failure, that is Milan’s management ranks.

It’s easy to blame the agent Mino Raiola. He is an unpleasant figure and is already part of his character. That’s why he became one of the top agents, protecting and safeguarding his client’s rights. it includes a hold on all the attacks directly to Donnarumma. Donnarumma is now 18 years old, he is mature and thoughtful. So do not pretend that Raiola has been brainwashed. Donnarumma should know what he did, a few weeks ago he kissed the Milan jersey badge, today he betrayed Milan.

Football is business, but what Donnarumma does is completely wrong. He sends Riola to do the dirty work, refusing to confirm directly with Milan’s management. He remained silent as fans pleaded, then pretended to care about Milan’s uniform more than anything. Then go when Milan has had a strong investor.

When things are very optimistic is very painful for Milan (and Milanisti), when it has strengthened all the lines. Starting from Defender (Matteo Mussasio and Riccardo Rodriguez), midfielder (Franck Kessie) and striker (Andrea Silva), and will add more players who join, just the goalkeeper who felt safe even defected. The search for a new player is forced to take a step back, Milan must immediately look for another goalkeeper. This is not only betrayal but also a sabotage.

Actually, what does he want? Madrid? It’s foolish to believe in a traitor’s bullshit. Crazy people also know that Madrid does not need him, they will not pay young boys like Milan (5 Million Pounds Sterling per year). An 18-year-old Italian youth in Spain is too risky to immediately become the first team for UEFA Champions League winners 2016/2017. Madrid, it’s a bad diversion of issues.

Anyone who understands football knows which clubs need heirs for their legendary goalkeeper who retires in 2018. Evil clubs that like to steal competing stars, who else if not “the thief.” Any club Donnarumma will join later is the real mastermind of this event and will be the target of Milanisti hatred of all time.

How great is he? Almost no team in the world builds their power base based on goalkeeping power. Donnarumma is yet to be the best goalkeeper, weak in the ball with his legs. But he has a suitable posture, a good reflex, as well as the most important high confidence that is very rare in his age.

We have to move forward and Milan will move forward! By removing the poisonous snake from the team. No doubt Donnarumma (may) have a glorious career in the future, but he will never be the same again in the eyes of the people, whoever he is.

It is the player’s right not to renew the contract, the Bosman rules are clearly set. But the club’s right is also not to play him throughout the season, as well as the right fans to insult him. Want to protest or bring a lawyer, we are not afraid. We have to move forward and Milan will move forward! Donnarumma is no bigger than Milan. For us (Milanisti) he is nothing more than a traitor.

“We can forget the defeat, but we can not forget the betrayal.” Herbert Kilpin co-founder of AC Milan.

DONNARUMMA SI PENGKHIANAT

“Kami bisa melupakan kekalahan, tapi kami tidak bisa melupakan pengkhianatan.” Herbert Kilpin salah seorang pendiri AC Milan.

DONNARUMMA SI PENGKHIANAT

Bila ditanya apakah serakah itu baik? Biasanya orang serakah akan pandai memasang kalimat. Keinginan manusia meraih sesuatu yang lebih baik dan ambisi manusia telah banyak hal baik di dunia. Tinggalkan zona nyaman adalah bagian dari keserakahan, kita tak akan pernah tahu sampai batas kapan hasrat akan terpuaskan, jika yang berlaku adalah “serakah itu baik.”

Beberapa minggu lalu kita menjadi saksi dari sebuah keindahan, ketika Francesco Totti mengakhiri perjalanan karir seumur hidup bersama AS Roma. Hari ini kita teringat betapa hal itu sulit dilakukan dalam dunia sepakbola. Apalagi, ketika Gianluigi Donnarumma menolak memperpanjang kontak dengan Milan. Loyalitas yang pernah kita saksikan pada Paolo Maldini, Franco Baresi, bahkan Javier Zanetti telah pudar tampaknya di serie-A. Apakah ini semua tanda keserakahan?

Apa yang salah dari usaha Milan? Tidak ada. Dia diturunkan di tim inti pada usia 16 tahun, menjadi seorang bintang dan bisa memperkuat tim nasional Italia di umur 18 tahun. Ia ditawarkan kontrak 5 Juta Euro pertahun untuk 5 tahun. Yang mana dia akan menjadi penjaga gawang nomor 3 bergaji tertinggi di dunia, hanya dibawah Manuel Nuer (Bayern Muenchen) dan David De Gea (Manchester United). Bayangkan di umur 18 tahun dia sudah akan dibayar di atas legenda Italia Gianluigi Buffon. Jika ada yang tidak bisa disalahkan atas kegagalan ini, itu adalah jajaran manajemen Milan.

Sangat mudah memang menyalahkan Mino Raiola sang agen. Riola adalah sosok tidak menyenangkan dan sudah merupakan bagian dari karakternya. Itulah mengapa dia menjadi salah seorang agen top, melindungi dan menjaga hak kliennya, itu termasuk pasang badan terhadap semua serangan. Donnarumma sekarang berusia 18 tahun, dia cukup dewasa dan memiliki pemikiran sendiri. Jadi, jangan berpura-pura seolah telah dicuci otak oleh Raiola. Donnarumma harusnya tahu apa yang dilakukan, beberapa minggu lalu ia mencium badge jersey Milan, hari ini ia mengkhianatinya.

Sepakbola adalah bisnis, tapi apa yang dilakukan oleh Donnarumma itu sepenuhnya salah. Dia mengirim Riola untuk melakukan pekerjaan kotor, menolak mengkonfirmasi secara langsung dengan manajemen Milan. Dia tetap diam ketika fans memohon, lalu berpura-pura peduli akan seragam Milan lebih dari apapun. Kemudian pergi ketika Milan telah memiliki investor yang kuat.

Ketika keadaan sedang sangat optimis adalah sangat menyakitkan bagi Milan (dan Milanisti), ketika telah memperkuat semua lini dari belakang (Matteo Mussasio dan Riccardo Rodriguez), tengah (Franck Kessie) dan depan (Andrea Silva), serta akan bertambah lagi, justru bagian penjaga gawang yang dirasa aman malah membelot. Proyek pencarian pemain baru terpaksa mundur selangkah, Milan harus segera mencari penjaga gawang lain. Ini tidak hanya pengkhianatan tapi juga sebuah sabotase.

Sebenarnya apa yang diincarnya? Madrid? Tolol sekali kita jika percaya bualan si pengkhianat. Orang gila juga tahu bahwa Madrid tidak butuh dirinya, mereka tidak akan membayar anak muda belia selayaknya Milan (5 Juta Poundsterling pertahun). Seorang anak muda Italia 18 tahun di Spanyol terlalu beresiko untuk langsung menjadi tim inti bagi pemenang Liga Champions 2016/2017. Madrid itu adalah pengalihan isu yang buruk, siapapun yang paham sepakbola tahu klub mana yang membutuhkan pewaris untuk penjaga gawang legenda mereka yang pensiun di 2018. Klub jahat yang suka mencuri bintang-bintang pesaingnya, siapa lagi kalau bukan “si pencuri.”

Klub manapun yang menampung Donnarumma kelak adalah dalang sesungguhnya peristiwa ini, dan akan menjadi sasaran kebencian Milanisti sepanjang masa.

Sehebat apa memang dia? Hampir tidak ada tim di dunia membangun basis kekuatan mereka berdasarkan kekuatan penjaga gawang. Lagi pula Donnaruma belum menjadi penjaga gawang terbaik, dia lemah dalam mengoper bola dengan kaki. Tapi dia memiliki postur yang cocok, refleks yang baik, serta yang paling penting kepercayaan diri tinggi yang sangat jarang di usianya.

Milan akan maju, Milan pasti maju! Dengan menyingkirkan ular berbisa dari tim. Tidak diragukan Donnarumma (mungkin) memiliki karir gemilang di masa depan, tapi dia tidak akan pernah sama lagi di mata orang-orang, siapapun dia.

Adalah hak pemain untuk tidak memperpanjang kontrak, aturan Bosman mengatur secara jelas. Tapi hak klub juga untuk mencadangkan sepanjang musim, serta hak fans untuk merendahkan. Silahkan protes atau membawa pengacara sekalian, kami tidak takut. Milan akan maju dan Milan pasti maju! Donnarumma tidak lebih besar dari Milan. Bagi kami (Milanisti) dia tak lebih dari rendang basi yang tak tahu diri.

“Kami bisa melupakan kekalahan, tapi kami tidak bisa melupakan pengkhianatan.” Herbert Kilpin salah seorang pendiri AC Milan.

CONQUEST OF CULTURE

The Mongol conquest always left the mountains of human skulls

CONQUEST OF CULTURE

Ibn Khaldun said, “Losing cultures will follow the winning culture”. And of course, the conquest of the Mongols / Tartars was forced to be excluded from this theory. We can see how the Mongol / Tartar conquerors who devastated Baghdad eventually embraced Islam through Takudar or Muhammad Khan and elsewhere the grandson of the conqueror “Genghis Khan” Kublai Khan chose to follow Chinese culture and founded the Yuan Dynasty.

The Book of Mukkadimah written by Ibn Khaldun

But Ibn Khaldun’s theory proves to be valid, for example when Germany, Japan, and Italy (the Axis block) were conquered in World War II. So the system of Fascism disappeared from the face of the earth replaced by the system of Capitalism / Liberal and Communist who became the winner and the most obvious is when Germany separated into two parts of West Germany and East Germany.

The pattern of re-emerging occurred when Communism collapsed in the late 1980s, in which Eastern European countries ran away from the Communist system to replace it with a more open and “more democratic” economic system. Even now China and Vietnam, while still embracing Communism but being “forced” Should liberalize the country’s system of international “globalization pressures” of the world.

Practically in the present era, the so-called Liberal Democracy is at its heyday after Fascism is buried and Communism is conquered. What is in the name of Democracy under the banner of the American West and its allies is the absolute truth that must be followed by another country, in full or by modification.

US President George W. Bush once boasted at the end of 2005 confidently saying that “Every nation that exists in the world today should stop all efforts to compete with Western culture.” Although the next day the Russian President, it is possible to maintain prestige. Vladimir Putin replied, “We are not the same, and we are not with you”. But we have to admit that Western dominance is really strong in today’s world.

Automatically and very clearly put forward by Samuel Huntington in Clash of Civilization that the threat to Western culture is Islam. And the difference becomes clear when the values continue to clash. Many examples are happening and the author thinks no need to be written again because we all already know.

The question is Dare we say “Your values are different from our values and do not force us to follow you.” Courageous in actions, words, and intentions. And hopefully, the courage is not fading away from our self.

“Throught history many nations have suffered a physical defeat, but has never marked the end of a nation. But when a nation has become the victim of a phychological defeat, then that marks the end of a nation” – Ibnu Khaldun

SENJA DI MALAKA

menyalakan samar hampar lautan, aku menjelma menjadi sebaris nama

SENJA DI MALAKA

Pada tahun 1620-1630. Portugis di Malaka dihadapi oleh Aceh Darussalam dan Johor. Belanda di Batavia di hadapi oleh Mataram dan Banten, sedangkan Spanyol di Filipina dihadapi oleh Ternate dan Tidore. Kekuatan-kekuatan asing Barat itu, Portugis, Spanyol, Inggris dan Perancis saling baku hantam satu dengan lain, akan tetapi kekuasaan-kekuasaan di Nusantara sendiri tidak mampu menggalang persatuan dan kesatuan gerak perjuangan untuk menghadapinya, bahkan saling bertikai. Ini adalah kisah tentang keadaan sebelum Belanda keluar sebagai pemenang tunggal di lautan dan bumi Nusantara. Sebuah kisah tentang penyerangan Aceh ke Malaka yang dikuasai Portugis.

X

Sri Baginda Sultan Iskandar Muda menangani sendiri persiapan penyerbuan Malaka. Sebagai seorang prajurit aku melihat-lihat apa yang sedang dipersiapkan itu. Ya, aku benar-benar takjub melihat armada Kesultanan Aceh Darussalam, yang oleh Baginda dikatakan sebagai armada yang “tak terkalahkan” itu. Kapal kami akan diberangkatkan dari Bandar Aceh sudah sangat banyak, belum lagi yang akan bergabung dari pelabuhan-pelabuhan lain di pesisir Timur Aceh.

Akhirnya, sesuai perhitungan armada kami berangkat, terdiri atas kapal-kapan perang dan kapal-kapal pengangkut prajurit-prajurit darat. Aku berada pada salah satu kapal. Tidak terlalu besar, tapi lincah luar biasa, karena jumlah dan para pendayung pilihan. Dari kapal ini aku dapat menyaksikan Kapal yang terbesar dimana Sri Baginda Sultan Iskandar Muda berada, pihak Portugis menamainya Espanto del Mundo. Kepada kapal itu Sultan memberikan nama Cakradonya. Betapa tidak! Panjangnya 100 meter, tegak berdiri tiga tiang layar yang Nampak seperti batang-batang kelapa saja. Sepintas aku menghitung ada sekitar 50 pucuk meriam berbagai jenis pada setiap lambungnya. Ya, aku tidak bisa membayangkan bagaimana jika nanti meriam-meriam itu ditembakkan semua. Di tengah pelayaran menuju Malaka, aku merenung.

Sepanjang pelayaran. Aku membayangkan Sri Baginda Sultan Iskandar Muda pasti tersenyum-senyum. Kami yakin Malaka akan jatuh ke tangan Aceh. Sebagaimana mimpi kami selaku putera Aceh lainnya, adalalah merebut Malaka. Mengusir Portugis selama-lamanya dari bumi Nusantara.

Penyerangan Malaka (Portugis) oleh Kesultanan Aceh Darussalam di tahun 1629

Tahun 1629. Iring-iringan kapal yang berjumlah ratusan itu akhirnya tiba. Tembakan-tembakan meriam dari benteng Malaka dapat diimbangi oleh tembakan-tembakan meriam dari kapal-kapal armada Aceh. Pasukan telah didaratkan. Kota Malaka telah diduduki, dan tinggal benteng Malaka.

Akan tetapi kami dikejutkan oleh datangnya armada Portugis dari arah Barat, dari Goa (India). Perimbangan kekuatan di laut telah berubah sama sekali. Bahkan dari darat kami dikejutkan oleh tentara Johor datang menolong benteng Portugis dari arah darat. Dasar Pengkhianat! Perimbangan pasukan di darat juga telah berubah sama sekali.

Baru untuk pertama kalinya aku merasakan, mungkin aku akan mati dalam pertempuran ini. Pertempuran laut semakin mengerikan, kapal-kapal terbakar, hancur berantakan, dan tenggelam di sekitar Kapal Agung Cakradonya. Sepertinya kami akan kalah. Sri Sultan Iskandar Muda telah memerintahkan kapal berbalik.

Aku memerintahkan kapal kami untuk melindungi pergerakan mundur Cakradonya. Ya, aku Ahmad bertekad bulat untuk menjadi bagian sejarah Kesultanan Aceh Darussalam mengusir bangsa Portugis dari bumi dan perairan Nusantara. Dan jika kami harus kalah hari ini, maka akan ada hari lain. Sri Sultan harus selamat, untuk membangun kekuatan kembali. Aku rela mati hari ini. Allahu Akbar!

Serangan dari arah belakang oleh armada Portugis sudah membuat kami kewalahan, belum lagi ditambah oleh pengkhianatan Johor yang lebih sudi bekerja sama dengan kafir. Nampak dihadapanku ratusan mayat prajurit dari pihak kami dan lawan mengapung di selat Malaka yang berwarna kemerah-merahan itu.

Air mataku menetes melihat jalur-jalur darah segar teman-teman seperjuangan mengalir dari badan-badan kapal yang hancur berantakan, dibarengi dengan gegap gempitanya teriakan aba-aba, jeritan mengerikan prajurit-prajurit yang terkena tembak, dan rintihan memilukan mereka yang terluka parah.

“Maju Aceh!” teriakku. Duaaaar!!! Rasa-rasanya aku merasakan beberapa peluru menembus dadaku. Aku terjatuh ke laut, kemudian diputar-putar, digasing-gasingkan, dan dijungkirbalikkan. Sayup-sayup terdengar suara terikan bahwa kapal Cakradonya telah berhasil meloloskan diri dari kepungan.

Aku tersenyum, sampai jumpa Sultan. Selesailah sudah pengabdianku di dunia, saatnya aku mempertanggungjawabkan segala perbuatanku di dunia kepada sang khaliq. Dadaku sesak oleh peluru dan air laut yang memenuhi rongga di paru-paruku. Untuk terakhir kalinya, sebelum maut menjemputku aku melafalkan dengan syahdu. “Asyhadu an-laa ilaaha illallaah Wa asyhadu anna Muhammadan rasuulullaah.” Aku bersaksi bahwa tiada Tuhan selain Allah dan Aku bersaksi bahwa Muhammad adalah rasul (utusan) Allah.

Menyalakan samar hampar lautan, aku menjelma menjadi sebaris nama.

Extent of Aceh Sultanate during the reign of Iskandar Muda, 1608–1637. Source Wikipedia

Penyerangan Kesultanan Aceh Darussalam ke Malaka (Portugis) tahun 1629 gagal total. Menurut sumber Portugis, seluruh armada Aceh hancur dengan kehilangan 19.000 prajurit.

ACEH WOMEN FULL POWER

A Healthy Women’s tabloid sponsored by UNFPA and BKKBN Aceh Regional Office, an article taken from Pustakaloka Kompas Online 8th edition September 2005 an article written by Ruth Indiah Rahayu a social worker in Kalyanamitra, the writing was inspired by a book entitled: Gender, Islam, Nationalist and state in Aceh: The Paradox of Power, Co-optation, and Resistance by Jacqueline Aquino Siapno. In the article, she asks why women in Aceh if they want to travel to? Male area? Such as a coffee shop should be accompanied by her mahram and if not then the woman will be labeled bad by the community. And he regrets that gender issues never get a place in Aceh society. “As if pestilence brought from Jakarta” he regrets.

Dr. Snouck Hurgronye

Finally, by considering the writings of Dr. Snouk Hurgronyoe who had “explored Aceh” he concluded that the power of Acehnese women was marginalized by the new values of Islam and the power of post-independence Nationalism in Aceh. From the writing implied that the role of women in Aceh is confined and ironically Aceh women do not realize it is based on the fact that the feminist movement has never had supporters in Aceh.

That’s all not true !!! Macro probably we do not see the role of women Aceh is too prominent at this time, but the micro women Aceh have a very big role and can be said the real Aceh Ruler. From the relationship of marriage, we see that the wife is called by name? Po Rumoh! Which if translated into English roughly means the Owner / Master of the house. The husband at the beginning of the marriage flows live in the house-in-law to avoid the occurrence of domestic violence. A custom which was initiated by Sri Ratu Safiatuddin to protect women in Aceh never caused the center of the Aceh Sultanate to move when his father appointed his husband Sultan Iskandar Thani from the Kedah Sultanate to become his successor.

The role of Aceh women in domestic life is also quite large, a Teuku Umar will not surface if not supported by a Cut Nyak Dien. Admiral Malahayati, Cut Nyak Meutia, Pocut Baren, Sri Ratu Nuzulul Alam are mighty women who have not forgotten the true duty of women as mothers.

Cultural transfers in Aceh are more dominantly performed by mothers, for children born into the 1980s would still remember when they were little when they were going to sleep in the swing sometimes grandmother or mother humming the song Dodaidi containing the spirit of struggle against the pagan invaders although the Dutch Has long left the Earth from Aceh. Every child is required to hear it be a useful person in the future. Imagine every day, morning and afternoon to sleep hard to forget the contents of his poetry despite being grown now. For the children of Aceh, mothers, grandmothers, older siblings, younger siblings are strong, strong and Full Power who will always respect, we love and we miss.

History records. Every battle brings personal suffering to women, so it takes at least an equal strength to cope with its passive passage, to bear, to surrender and to live, just as for the active part of the battle itself that can bring happiness through it.

Women, they lived and waited at home and through the “gate of insecurity” which for the average person they always kept open, had let a new guest into his house, an anxiety that always arises against someone or those who go through the duty. The guest was at the center of life at home and his shadow hung above all and all, above all the movements and thoughts of those left behind.

In the case of long warfare ever occurred in Aceh, as a war, wherever war has raged on this earth. But it is even more powerful to be felt in Aceh because their women are very close to or indeed are in the arena of war. There they live with war, their souls daily follow their husbands or sons on the journeys they know to the greatest degree. The anxiety caused by a sudden phone call is the same as a phone call that never arrives.

And if this happens for so long, then the anxiety can turn into a frightening ghost at home, the sudden rustling of the foot, the soft typewritten voice on the door or the distant peoples’ voice enough to place those who are waiting in confusion, Because it is not impossible and always so. That it was an unlucky message about the husband or the arrival of a dead man was transported to the hospital.

“As Acehnese women, we should not shed tears on people who are martyred,” said Cut Nyak Dhien.

Although now the war has aged, Aceh since 2005 has been slowly peaceful. Regarding Acehnese women can be told, that since the Colonial war against the Dutch. Her role up to now is difficult to assess and is usually very active. The Acehnese woman, bravely, is a vengeful resentment against the colonial colonialism (Netherlands) that is unrivaled and unfamiliar. If she fought, then the task was carried out with a force that did not know death and usually (always) beat her men. She is a burning revenge that even to the grave and in the face of death is still daring to spit into the face of “kaphe” (=Dutch Colonist).

In the past, it seemed that no romance writer could afford and succeed in revealing his crazy fantasy as Aceh women have proven in reality.

Women are the pillar of the State, a mother is a school where a child first gets to know the world and shapes the child’s mindset in looking at the world. Faced with global pressure and the influence of Western-controlled media to the moment when Acehnese women can survive? Frankly, no one can answer it because the simultaneous erosion process occurs, and continues.
