MANASIK HAJI....HAJJ PRACTICE...for CHILDREN

MANASIK HAJI....HAJJ  PRACTICE...for CHILDREN

Just like a seed grown healthy, if watering regularly, nurture to maintenance from wild grass around the field will grow as we expected. Even the climate changes, wind blowing, rain and thunder, if its root deep enough, no matter what, will be happy at the end of the season.

I noticed once last Tuesday, November 15, 2011 a group of Kindergarten students, English Speaking Moslem school in East Jakarta, practiced the Hajj pilgrim similar with grown people done the actual pilgrim in Saudi Arabian, yearly basis. This practice included in a Curricula for Kindergarten schools in Jakarta. done after Idul Adha celebration on November 6, 2011

The instructor keep humming in Arab praying, following by students in white robes in quite hot climate in November rainy season made them sweating. The teachers and a principal very busy to keep them always in order in line form. Amazingly all students obeyed what the instructor, a man and the teachers (all  Muslimat) had to say.


Students entered two tiny camps in front of schools, look like as they entered the camps in Saudia Arabian country, Makkah and Madinah, group by group before form a line out of school yard forward to a Mosque nearby through a street' just 100 meters away, fenced by a white ropes and all teachers and security men at late morning at 10 am.


Before entered Suhada Mosque, students one by one throw stones in to 3 places in separated places in second floor of the Mosque before step up stairs entered a Mosque door to practiced Sholat praying under instructor  and teachers guidance. So far run smooth and success without any principle problems until back to the school for lunch in a box.

A Hajj pilgrim is a 5th principles for  the Moslem, one obligation beside the other 4 as long as they afford to pay the costs as Government decided yearly basis. The students of  this Kindergarten belong to the have one recently, at least the parents taught their children, that when they  grown up their heart long would fly to joint the Hajj pilgrim

I remembered in Februari 8, 2010 in this Blog I posted a special poem in Bahasa Indonesia title Panggilan Suci or Holy Calling :

PANGGILAN SUCI
Oleh Pinondang Situmeang
Suara azan mengalun syahdu menusuk kalbu
Memanggil, bersujud kepada Illahi
Tak alpha lima waktu jika jam berdentang
Di surau di sebelah kolam
Sejak usia dini

Dasar yang kokoh dibangun diatas ayat ayat
Tauladan, aturan ketat dan aneka nasehat
Yang tak akan goyah oleh badai ajaran sesat
Tak akan lapuk oleh cuaca sepanjang abad

Jalan kehidupan memang berliku dan panjang
Sambil berdendang sepanjang jalan kenangan
Diatas jok empuk dan udara nyaman
Dalam nuansa gaul zaman sekarang
Jika tak awas bisa masuk jurang dan arus jeram
Tenggelam.

Syukur panggilan Kha'bah dari Mekkah, Madinah
dan padang Arafah mengumandang
Dalam mimpi mimpi, kapankah jadi kenyataan
Alhamdulillah, Allah memberi barokah dan jalan
Tabungan disisihkan memenuhi panggilan
Insya Allah tahun menjelang bersama muhrim akan terbang
Tunaikan rukun ke lima jauh keseberang lautan
Allahu Akhbar, Allahhu Akhbar
kami segera datang
