The Last Will of Ali – Wasiat Terakhir Imam Ali

07 Jan

Setelah ditikam Ibnu Muljam saat solat di masjid Kufah (Irak), berikut di antara wasiat Khalifah Ali: Perjuangkan kebenaran (proclaim the truth). Perangi para penindas, dan bantulah yang didzalimi. Jaga persatuan. (Bersatu kembali di atas perbedaan yang ada lebih berharga ketmbang semua solat dan semua jenis puasa -reconciliation of your differences is more worthy than all prayers and all fasting). Beri makan anak-anak yatim. Jaga hubungan baik dengan tetanggamu. Nabi saw berkali-kali mengingatkan soal tetangga, sehingga seolah-olah mereka itu berhak mendapatkan warisan. Dan seterusnya, sila baca pesan-pesan wasiat beliau di bawah..

Imam Ali‘s (AS) last will to his sons Imam Hasan (AS) and Imam Hussain (AS) after the attempt on his life by a stab from Ibn Muljam:

Wasiat terakhir Khalifah IV Ali bin Abithalib (as) kepada kedua putranya Hasan dan Husain setelah beliau ditikam (di Masjid Kufah) oleh Ibn Muljam: 

  • Nasihatku untuk kalian, selalu ingatlah kepada Allah dan jaga agamamu sebaik-baiknya. Jangan mengejar dunia, dan jangan sampai tergoda olehnya. Jangan menyesali apa pun yang kau luput daripadanya (tidak memperolehnya). Perjuangkan kebenaran; dan beramal-lah untuk akhirat. Lawanlah para penindas (orang dzalim), dan bela mereka yang tertindas (terdzalimi).
  • Aku nasihatkan kepadamu, semua anak-anakku, keluargaku, dan siapa saja yang menerima pesan ini, ingat (bertakwa)-lah selalu kepada Allah; hilangkan semua perbedaan, dan jagalah selalu tali persatuan (ukhuwah). Aku pernah mendengar kakek kalian (Nabi saw) berkata: “Menyambungkan perbedaan (silaturahim) lebih tinggi nilainya daripada semua solat dan segala (jenis) puasa.”
  • Takutlah pada Allah dalam urusan anak yatim. Berikan makanan mereka dan jangan lupa kebutuhan mereka di tengah-tengah urusanmu sendiri.
  • Takutlah pada Allah dalam urusan dengan tetangga kalian. Nabi saw sering menasihati kalian soal ini, sedemikian seriusnya sehingga kami berpikir beliau (saw) akan mewajibkan pemberian warisan kepada tetangga.
  • Selalu jaga kedekatanmu dengan Al Quran. Jangan sampai ada seorang pun lebih dari kalian dalam keseriusan (kekhusyukan) dalam perkara ini, atau lebih ikhlas dalam penerapan (ayat-ayat)-nya.
  • Bertakwalah kepada Allah dalam urusan solat. Solat itu tiang agama kalian.
  • Bertakwalah kepada Allah dalam kaitannya dengan haji (baitullah); jangan meninggalkannya selama engkau hidup. Jika kalian sampai meninggalkannya, berarti kalian kehilangan kemuliaan diri.
  • Selalu bersungguh-sungguh (berjihad) di jalan (demi) Allah, dengan harta, jiwa dan lidah kalian.
  • Tetaplah menjaga komunikasi (saling bertegur-sapa) dan saling bertukar pendapat sesama kalian. Hati-hatilah kalian (jangan sampai) berpecah belah. Jangan pernah berhenti mengingatkan kepada kebaikan (amr ma’ruf) dan melarang kejahatan (nahi munkar). Kalau sampai kalian lupakan itu, maka yang terburuk dari kalian-lah yang akan menjadi pemimpin kalian, dan kalian tidak akan dihiraukan Allah.
  • Wahai anak-anak Abdul Muttalib (maksudnya kakek mereka), jangan sampai menumpahkan darah Muslimin dengan alasan (bahwa): Imam (maksudnya Ali bin Abithalib sendiri) telah dibunuh. Hanya pembunuhku saja yang mesti dibalas sampai mati.
  • Jika aku meninggal akibat tikaman ini, qisos-lah dia (Bin Muljam) dengan pukulan yang serupa (setimpal dengan tikaman yang membunuh Ali; artinya tetap berlaku adil). Jangan mencincangnya. Aku pernah mendengar Nabi saw, berkata: “Jangan lakukan pencincangan bahkan kepada seekor anjing (pemburu kelinci) sekali pun.”

English version:

  • My advice to you is to be conscious of Allah and steadfast in your religion. Do not yearn for the world, and do not be seduced by it. Do not resent anything you have missed in it. Proclaim the truth; work for the next world. Oppose the oppressor and support the oppressed.
  • I advise you, and all my children, my relatives, and whosoever receives this message, to be conscious of Allah, to remove your differences, and to strengthen your ties. I heard your grandfather, peace be upon him, say: “Reconciliation of your differences is more worthy than all prayers and all fasting.”
  • Fear Allah in matters concerning orphans. Attend to their nutrition and do not forget their interests in the middle of yours.
  • Fear Allah in your relations with your neighbors. Your Prophet often recommended them to you, so much so that we thought he would give them a share in inheritance.
  • Remain attached to the Quran. Nobody should surpass you in being intent on it, or more sincere in implementing it.
  • Fear Allah in relation to your prayers. It is the pillar of your religion.
  • Fear Allah in relation to His House; do not abandon it as long as you live. It you should do that you would abandon your dignity.
  • Persist in jihad in the cause of Allah, with your money, your souls, and your tongue.
  • Maintain communication and exchange of opinion among yourselves. Beware of disunity and enmity. Do not desist from promoting good deeds and cautioning against bad ones. Should you do that,the worst among you would be your leaders, and you will call upon Allah without response.
  • Children of Abdul Muttaleb! Do not shed the blood of Muslims under the banner: The Imam has been assassinated! Only the assassin should be condemned to death.
  • If I die of this stab of his, kill him with one similar stroke. Do not mutilate him! I have heard the Prophet, peace be upon him, say: “Mutilate not even a rabid dog.”

In the 40th year of Hijri, in the small hours of the morning of 19th Ramadan, Imam Ali (AS) was struck with a poisoned sword by the Kharijite Ibn Maljam while offering his prayers in the Masjid of Kufa. He died on the 21st day of Ramadan 40 A.H. and buried in Najaf-ul-Ashraf (Iraq).

He was born in the House of Allah, the Kaaba, and martyred in the House of Allah, Masjid Kufa. The Lion of Allah, the most brave and gentle Muslim after the Prophet (PBUH&HF) himself, began his glorious life with devotion to Allah and His Messenger, and ended it in the service of Islam.

“And do not speak of those who are slain in the the Way of Allah as dead; nay, they are alive, but you perceive not.” Quran 2:154
