My Ideology As A Moslem (I)

Reading the story of Captain James Yee, a chaplain in the United States Army was making me so dear into my heart. There, Captain Yee wrote about his suffering because of suspected terrorists and spies against his country. The allegations in the military court is not proven, but his reputation and career was already destroyed.

But, that's not what I want to share here in this writing. I just want to write my own story. The story of unnecessarily hatred and hurt feeling, ... especially since I had already proclaimed myself as a moderate Muslim who appreciate plurality. Plurality that also been taught by Chaplain Yee on his conggregation. Muslim military personnel on the armed forces of the United States.

My initial thoughts about Islam was probably started when I was entering my second year in my high school. At the time, I joined the Al Irshad al Islamiyya branch of Malang, East Java, the place that I had finished my senior high school. I even was appointed to be the Head of the Department of Education, Youth and Student of Al Irshad al Islamiyya of Malang branch by its chairman at that time. His name is Faiz Nadji al Said. Sound strange with that name? As if the name of Taliban fighters? .... Hahahaha.

My other friends are Ali Musallam Mahri, Chairman of Al Irshad of Malang branch at that time. Faiz was chairman of the Student and Youth of Al Irshad. My other friends were Jadid al Said, Mustafa al Said, Umar Thalib, Ghasim Sanad, Ali Alkatsiri, Osama Alkatsiri, Osama Mahri and much more ... But since I could remember none among my friends named Osama bin Laden, .. hahahaha.

Of course, I was the little among the members of Al Irshad whose flat-nosed. Even Abdullah Juraimi and Arifin which as Javanese as me also have long noses and handsome, ... hehehehe. My friend was calling the people who were the entity of Arabic descendants with term Jama'ah, and called the people like me which was Javanese with term Akhwaal which they said is jama 'or the plural of the word Khaal which its meaning is maternal relatives.

In my subjective opinion, I think my primary information about Islam had come from them. As a young man who thirst of spirituality I drank greedily about my religion from discussions with them. Among them, I most admire Ali Alkatsiri because his thinking was more moderate than others. Ali together with Ghasim ever went to Afghanistan when this country was still controlled by Russia.

I did not know how they were nowadays. Since I left to Yogya to enter Universitas Gadjah Mada, It had happened to me that I did lose contact with all my friends of Al Irshad. At that time, I wanted to go to Yogya and Mustafa want to Saudi Arabia for work. Even Mustafa's messages to keep in touch while I was in Yogya I had ignored. It is very regret today because actually Mustafa had very delicate feelings and a very good friend. I even receipt a little money for supplies to Yogyakarta from his mother. Money that had been trusted to her as charity of her families which were settled in Saudi Arabia.

I think I will continue my story tomorrow... this post is already too long. I will write about the changing of my Islamic paradigm when attending college in Yogyakarta. And then, my anger about Islamic propaganda activists' students on my campus. I want to parse the thread, ... and become a new person ....
