JAKARTA – Kekeramatan makam wali Al Imam Al Arif Billah Sayyidina Al Habib Hasan bin Muhammad Al Haddad Husain Ass Syafi’i Sunnira atau kerap disebut Mbah Priok, dikabarkan membuat tercengang para ilmuwan luar negeri.

Pengurus makam, Habibina, saat berbincang dengan okezone menuturkan, para ilmuwan tersebut melihat sinar yang memancar dari makam hingga ke luar angkasa.

Habibina menyebutkan, pada 14 Maret 2000 lalu beberapa orang asing yang mengaku utusan dari berbagai negara, seperti Amerika, Jerman, Rusia, dan Australia, mendatangi ahli waris.

Para ilmuwan ini, kepada ahli waris menuturkan, mereka melihat dari satelit terdapat sinar yang memancar dari Indonesia. Mereka menduga sinar tersebut merupakan senjata laser.

“Kemudian orang-orang asing itu mendatangi lokasi untuk mencari sinar laser yang menurut mereka itu adalah senjata laser. Ketika dilihat ternyata berasal dari makam kramat ini,” tuturnya.

Demikian dituturkannya kepada okezone yang diajak berbincang di majelis taklim yang berada di area komplek makam.

Habibina mengungkapkan, jika makam Mbah Priok merupakan makam wali yang seharusnya dihormati. Ahli waris mempercayai, makam Mbah Priok merupakan paku bumi yang dijaga keberadaannya oleh malaikat dan Allah SWT.

Disebutnya, pihak-pihak yang bernafsu menggusur makam Mbah Priok, merupakan orang-orang yang tidak mengerti kesucian wali. “Minimal kalau mereka tidak mengerti wali, harus menghormati makam ini adalah makam sejarah, yang pertama kali menamai Tanjung Priok,” tuturnya.

Bekas penjajah bumi nusantara pun, Belanda, menghormati keberadaan makam yang berada di pinggir laut itu. Bahkan Belanda sempat berpesan, jika makam keramat ini tidak boleh diganggu, dibongkar, atau pun dipindahkan.(hri)

>Allah SWT menjawab

>

Shalat adalah sebuah kebutuhan primer bagi seorang hamba untuk mengingat, menghadap dan berkomunikasi dengan Sang Khaliq. Setelah takbiratul ikhram, dalam iftitah sang hamba mengutarakan: “Kuhadapkan muka hatiku kepada dzat yang menciptakan langit dan bumi…”.
Selanjutnya, tatkala seorang hamba membaca Al Fatihah, Allah langsung memberikan jawaban sebagaimana tertuang dalam hadits sbb:
Nabi SAW bersabda, Allah SWT berfirman, “Shalat itu Kubagi dua antara Aku dan hamba-Ku. Untuk hamba-Ku ialah apa yang dimintanya. Apabila ia mengucapkan “Alhamdulillahi rabbil alamin” , maka Aku menjawab hamba-Ku memuji-Ku. Apabila ia mengucapkan “Arrahmaanirrahiim”, maka Aku menjawab hamba-Ku menyanjung-Ku, Apabila ia mengucapkan “Maaliki yaumiddiin”, maka Aku menjawab hamba-Ku mengagungkan-Ku, Apabila ia mengucapkan “Iyyaka nabudu waiyyaaka nastaiin”, maka Aku menjawab inilah bagian-Ku dan bagian hamba-Ku, dan untuk hamba-Ku apa yang dimintanya. Apabila ia mengucapkan “Ihdinashirratal mustaqim, shiratalladzina anamta alaihim ghairil maghduubi alaihim waladhaalin”, maka Aku menjawab inilah bagian hamba-Ku, dan untuk hamba-Ku apa yang dimintanya”(HR Muslim). 
Karena itulah, Al Fatihah hendaknya dibaca ayat demi ayat (tidak menyambung dua ayat atau lebih). Hal ini juga dicontohkan Rasul: “Kemudian beliau SAW membaca Al-Fatihah, beliau memenggalnya ayat demi ayat…” (HR Abu Dawud).
Ketika membaca Al Fatihah, yang perlu kita lakukan adalah:
1. Memahami kandungan arti surat Al Fatihah, ayat demi ayat
2. Mengetahui dan merasakan jawaban Allah pada ayat demi ayat yang kita baca
3. Meyakini bahwa jawaban Allah akan segera terwujud buat kita
Poin 1,2,3 di atas tentu saja dapat dicapai, asal mau berlatih. Jika artikel ini hanya kita baca, tanpa dibarengi dengan latihan sama sekali, jangan harap kita memperoleh perubahan kualitas dalam shalat yang kita lakukan!
Mari kita berlatih keras untuk menggapai 3 poin di atas sekarang juga! Semoga shalat kita lebih berarti, dan lebih terasa memberikan kedekatan dengan-Nya…
Amin

>IKHLAS

>

Kebahagiaan hakiki hanya bisa dicapai bila seseorang sudah berada dalam pengenalan kepada Allah dengan sebenar-benarnya, tanpa ada sedikitpun was-was dan ragu-ragu melainkan keyakinan yang padat melalui ketulusan / keikhlasan hati.
Keikhlasan terbit dari jiwa dan hati yang bersih dari noda-noda dosa dan penyakit-penyakit hati. Pembersihan jiwa dan pensucian hati dilakukan melalui praktek ruhani dalam keseharian.
Teori tentang ikhlas dan kebersihan hati sudah diketahui banyak orang, tapi yang mengetahui bagaimana keadaan dan suasana hati yang dirasakan ikhlas sehingga ibadah pun bisa khusu’ dan keadaan khusu’ serta suasana hati terasa khusu’ pun hanya diketahui oleh segelintir orang yang memang sudah betul-betul faham dan ahli. Mereka itulah Ahli Dzikir, Al Mursyid, Ulama pewaris Nabi yang mengetahui suasana hati itu dan mampu pula membimbing orang lain mendapatkan keadaan khusu’, ikhlas, serta segala seluk beluk yang berkenaan dengan jiwa.
Man Yahdillaahi fahuwal muhtad wa man yudhlil falan tajida lahuu Waliyyan Mursyiida (Barang siapa diberi petunjuk maka ia akan mendapatkan Hidayah, dan Barang siapa disesatkan maka tidak akan dipertemukan dengan seorang Wali Mursyid (yang memberi petunjuk)
( QS. Al Kahfi )
SURAT DARI SAHABAT :

Rasul Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “Good behaviour towards parents by which one can be courteous to them after their demise are to pray namaz-e-janaza upon them, make dua of forgiveness for them, fulfill their religious bequests, maintain relationship with those relatives linked through them and honour their friends. [Abu Daud] “Charity on their behalf after their death (also) earns reward for them.” [Muslim]

Often we realize the value of something only after it is gone. Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) in His Infinite Grace has provided for us a means to make amends even as late as after the person has already died. This hadith tells us how we can be dutiful to our parents after their death, thereby accruing rewards for both them and ourselves. These ways are:

1. Pray namz-e-janaza for them.
2. Pray to Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) to forgive them.
3. If they had decided to do some religious good e.g. Hajj or nafl fasts or charitable work, then fulfill it on their behalf.
4. Be kind to those relatives who are linked to us through them.
5. Honour their friends.
6. Give charity on their behalf.

Instead of wailing over our parents, if we truly love them then we should do good deeds ourselves. This is because we are sadaqa jaariya for our parents and they are rewarded for our righteousness.

Tidak Menyadari Kesalahan Adalah Suatu Kebodohan

Syaikh Ibnu Atha’illah
Diantara kebodohan murid adalah saat jika ia tidak sopan, kemudian hukumannya ditangguhkan, maka ia berkata, “Seandainya ini adalah ketidaksopanan, maka tentu pertolongan akan diputus, bahkan dijauhkan.” Bisa saja ia tidak menyadari bahwa pertolongan Allah dihentikan, sekalipun hanya berupa tidak adanya tambahan. Bisa pula pertolongan itu dijauhkan darinya tanpa ia menyadarinya, sekalipun hanya membiarkan dirimu dan apa yang engkau inginkan.
Murid yang dimaksud adalah orang-orang yang menekuni makrifat, yaitu mereka yang mempunyai kehendak untuk menuju jalan Allah. Termasuk kita sekarang ini, yang ingin menempuh jalan Kebenaran, jalan Makrifat. Adalah merupakan suatu kebodohan jika kita tidak menyadari akan kesalahan diri sendiri terhadap Allah.
Seumpama kita terlanjur lalai atau berbuat tidak sopan kepada Allah, tetapi kita merasa Allah tidak Menghukum kita. Kita merasa yakin Allah tidak mencabut nikmat-Nya atau tidak menjauhkan nikmat itu. Dan hati menjadi tenang, seraya berkata, “Seandainya aku bersalah tentu pertolongan-Nya dicabut, namun kenyataannya tidak, maka berarti aku tidak bersalah.”
Kita tidak tahu, sesungguhnya orang yang berbuat salah dan pekertinya buruk terhadap Allah, maka Allah tidak serta Menjatuhkan siksa-Nya, tidak serta memutus pertolongan-Nya. Bisa saja tidak kita sadari bahwa pertolongan-Nya itu diputus secara perlahan-lahan. Atau secara halus – nyaris tidak terasa – kita dijauhkan dari nikmat, atau kita tidak diberi tambahan nikmat. Sebenarnya itu adalah peringatan dari Allah, namun karena kebodohan kita, maka kita tidak menyadarinya.
Kebodohan itu jika dibiarkan, semakin lama akan menjebak diri sendiri. Karena setiap kita berbuat tidak sopan – maksiat – selalu saja merasa tidak bersalah. Maka timbullah rasa ujub di dalam hati. Lalu hati tercemar debu-debu dosa yang menghalangi jalan menuju Allah. Hijab yang menghalangi antara diri kita dengan Allah semakin tebal. Dan, na’udzubillah, kita menjadi orang yang tersesat. Perhatikan firman Allah, “Dan barangsiapa yang mendurhakai Allah dan Rasul-Nya (tidak taat) maka sesungguhnya dia telah sesat dengan kesesatan yang nyata [QS. Al-Ahzab 36]
Maka ketahuilah tanda-tanda orang yang tersesat diantaranya adalah ia merasa berat dan sukar untuk mengerjakan perintah-Nya meskipun sudah berusaha untuk melakukannya, mudah tergoda dan melanggar larangan-Nya meskipun ia berusaha untuk mencegah langkahnya menuju larangan itu, dan ia merasa tidak membutuhkan pertolongan Allah lagi, sehingga ia enggan berdoa.
Sebaliknya, orang yang dibukakan jalan lapang menuju Allah ialah ia merasa ikhlas dan mudah melakukan perintah-Nya, ia tidak mudah terjebak dalam lorong kemaksiatan, dan senantiasa berdoa maupun bersyukur karena tetap merasa membutuhkan Allah, kapan dan dimana saja.

DOLOMITE – CaMg(CO3)2

Dolomite……..Calcium Magnesium Carbonate……….CaMg(CO3)2

In England, dolomite has become a useful source for the production of magnesite by reacting calcined dolomite with sea-water.

The History Says
Dolomite is named for the French mineralogist Deodat de Dolomieu. They are found all over the world and are quite common in sedimentary rock sequences. These rocks are called appropriately enough dolomite or dolomitic limestone. Disputes have arisen as to how these dolomite beds formed and the debate has been called the “Dolomite Problem”.

The Present Scenario
Dolomite at present time, does not form on the surface of the earth; yet massive layers of dolomite can be found in ancient rocks. That is quite a problem for sedimentologists who see sandstones, shales and limestones formed today almost before their eyes.

DOLOMITE is a double carbonate of calium and magnesium, CaCO3, MgCO3. The mineral was first identified by Count Dolomien in 1791 and named after its discoverer. It is of sedimentary origin and is supposed to have been formed due to chemical action of sea-water containing high percentage of magnesia, on limestone.

Theoretically, dolomite contains:
CaCO3……..54.35%
MgCO3…….45.65%

In other words, it contains:
CaO……..30.4%
MgO ……21.7%
CO2 ….. 47.9%

In nature, considerable variations in the composition of dolomite relating to lime and magnesia percentages are found. When the percentage of CaCO3 increases by 10% or more over the theoretical composition, the mineral is termed ‘calcitic dolomite’, ‘high-calcium dolomite’ or ‘lime-dolomite’. With the decrease in percentage of MgCO3, it is called ‘dolomitic limestone’. With the variations of MgCO3 between 5 to 10%, it is called ‘magnesian limestone’, and upto 5% MgCO3 or less it is taken to be limestone for all purposes in trade and commercial parlance.

Dolomite usually contains impurities, chiefly silica, alumina and iron oxide. For commercial purposes, the percentage of combined impurities should not go beyond 7% above which, it becomes unsuitable for industrial use. It is then used only for road ballasts, building stones, flooring chips etc.

Industrial Applications

Dolomite is chiefly used as refractory, ramming, and fettling material in steel melting shop, and as fluxing material in blast furnace operation in secondary steel and ferromanganese manufacture. To a lesser extent it is used in the glass industry especially in sheet-glass manufacture. It also finds use in the manufacture of mineral wool.

In England, dolomite has become a useful source for the production of magnesite by reacting calcined dolomite with sea-water. The UK is meeting nearly 50% of her magnesite requirements by this method. Dolomite is also a good source of magnesium metal. The magnesium metal is extracted from dolomite by the well-known fero-silicon process.

Dolomite decomposes completely above 900ºC. The product resulting from this relatively low-temperature calcination is highly porous and reactive and is known as ‘calcinated dolomite’. Dolomite is sometimes used both in the raw and calcined form as refractory material for hearth maintenance and for banking door in open hearth furnaces.

For most refractory uses, it is desirable to subject the dolomite to a heat treatment at a high temperature of the order of 1700ºC, to shrink the material thoroughly and render it less reactive. Dead burnt (D.B.) dolomite is sthe term generally used for the refractory made by firing dolomite, with or without additives, at high temperature to produce dense, well-shrunk particles.

In basic converters the bricks employed are generally of D.B. dolomite and sometimes also of D.B. magnesite. Dolomite bricks are kept in the outer lining because it has lower thermal conductivity than magnesite.

Manufacturing Process
Dead burnt refractory dolomite is produced in rotary kilns. Generally high-grade dolomite, containing combined impurities less than 3%, is selected for dead burning. As it is difficult to densify high purity dolomite in a rotary kiln, it is customary to use some mineralizers to facilitate dead burning. Iron oxide is a common additive. The manufacturing process varies with the grade of D.B. dolomite desired to be produced. In most of the plants in European countries a typical operation, employing rotary kilns lined in the hot zone with basic bricks and fired with powdered coal, is used. The temperature reached in the hot zone is of the order of 1760ºC. The kilns have continuous gas sampling equipment which measures and records the oxygen, combustibles, and carbon dioxide contents of the kiln exit gases for combustion control. The latter is particularly important in achieving a uniform quality of the product, effective use of dead burning agents and efficient use of fuel in the manufacture of dead burnt dolomite.

The dolomite after dead burning is cooled in either rotary or reciprocating recuperative coolers. The air used for cooling gets heated and is again used as secondary air for combustion in the kilns. When D.B. dolomite is manufactured with an additive, it is necessary to use somewhat higher firing temperature in order to shrink the dolomite in a reasonable time-cycle in the kiln. This has been accomplished by improved thermal efficiency in the kiln. Some of the means to attain higher efficiency have been the use of insulating brick-back of the basic lining in the hot zone and the optimum utilization of secondary air from the recuperative coolers, in order to pick up as much of the available heat as is possible from the cooling of the product.

There is another product known as ‘stabilised’ refractory dolomite. It is manufactured by the process similar to that of portland clinker. Dolomite and serpentine with small amounts of suitable stabilising agents, are ground to a slurry in a ball mill. The slurry is fired to a dense mature clinker in a rotaery kiln having a temperature of the order of 1760ºC.

The optimum capacity of vertical or shaft kiln using coke admixed with dolomite for fuel is kept at a minimum of 100 tonnes a day. Such kilns are widely used in the USA and the UK, Scandinavia and other European countries. Great progress has been made in the automation of kilns in the steel-producing countries. D.B. dolomite can stand temperatures upto 2300ºC. It is widely used as a refractory material wherever steel is refined using basic slag. It is used for original hearth installations in the open hearth furnaces as well as for hearth maintenance. These hearths are installed using tar-dolomite ramming mixes and rammed dolomite. Dolomite refractories are also used in electrical furnaces and in cement industry during clinker manufacture.

Specifications
Steel manufacturers prefer dolomite of the following composition for dead burning:
• MgCO3 ————- 35% Min.
• SiO2 ————— 1% Max.
• Fe2O3+Al2O3 ——- 1.5% Max.
• CaCO3 ————– Remainder

Dolomite for use as flux in steel metallurgy should be hard, compact and fine-grained so that it can stand the burden of the batch in the blast furnace as well as the basic steel convertor. It should not be crystalline, i.e., it should not have a saccharoidal texture which gives fritting effect in the furnace. Impurities as low as possible are preferred. It should be free from phosphorous and sulphur. Generally, two grades of dolomite are used, one is called blast furnace (BF) grade and the other steel melting shop (SMS) grade.

The dolomite containing insolubles (Al2O3+Fe2O3+SiO2) upto 7%, is used in the blast furnace by most of the steel manufacturers in the country but the dolomite dontaining a maximum of 4 to 5% insolubles is preferred. Silica and alumina contents in dolomite are not regarded deleterious for blast furnaces. They only cause unnecessary increase in the slag. Dolomite has been found as a useful support to limestone in removing sulphur from the iron ore. It also reduces the viscosity of the slag, thus chemical reactions in the furnace. For the steel melting shop the total insolubles below 4% are preferred. The silica content should be as low as possible, in no case above 2% being tolerated.

The ferro-manganese manufacturers in India usually prefer SMS dolomite for fluxing purposes.

In general, the metallurgical industries require dolomite of the following grades for fluxing purposes.
Blast furnace grade SMS and Ferro-Manganese grades
CaO 28 – 30% Min. CaCO3 MgCO3 95% Max.
MgO 18 – 20% Min. Fe2O3 + Al2O3 2% Max.
Al2O3 + SiO2 + Fe2O3
(total insolubles) 7% Max. SiO2 for SMS
for ferromanganese 2% Max.
3% Max.
For use in the colourless sheet-glass industry, the dolomite should contain not more than 0.1% Fe2O3. Total acid insolubles less than 2% are preferred. A higher content or SiO2 or Al2O3 is not regarded deleterious.
