Muslim4Lent? Absolutely Haram!

lent_alarabiya

Interfaith understanding. Banyak hal yang dilakukan dalam rangka meraih hal ini, muncul berbagai reaksi atas usaha-usaha tersebut. Kali ini ada usaha untuk mencapai saling paham yang tidak terdengar di Indonesia tapi lumayan bikin saya mengernyitkan dahi.

Saya menemukan berita soal puasa lent ini sewaktu sedang menjelajahi sumber berita kosher. Saya coba cek melalui google, rupa-rupanya sudah diberitakan oleh alarabiya dan sebuah blog Kristen saya mencapai organisasi “muslim progressif” yang mengadakan event ini. Berikut kutipan dari laman event tersebut:

Join us for our first annual #Muslims4Lent

We believe in the power of interfaith dialogue and solidarity. Instead of dwelling on the negative dialogue against Islam, we are choosing to focus on the many people of other faiths that have extended their hands towards the Muslim community to build a friendship and understanding. This has come in many forms, from churches writing us Eid Muburak messages to Jews, Hindus and many other religions participating in a Ramadan’s Fast-a-Thon. Let us come together and show them our respect for their beliefs as well.

Join the initiative and take a picture with a sign of what you’ll be giving up for the 40 days of Lent! Share it on your page and hashtag #Muslims4Lent! We will be collecting all the photos and sharing it on our new website eidpraylove.com and Instagram! We look forward to seeing your posts!

Lent starts February 18th inshalla!

haram

my face when reading that

Sikap saya soal memberi selamat natal mungking tidak diterima sebagian kalangan muslim Indonesia. Tidak untuk event ini.

Bila merujuk pada fatwa MUI soal perayaan natal bersama maka bisa kita lihat bahwa pada dasarnya umat Islam dilarang melakukan perayaan hari besar umat lain dan juga dilarang melakukan peribadatan bersama-sama dengan umat lain.

Bahwa ummat Islam tidak boleh mencampur-adukkan aqidah dan peribadatan agamanya dengan aqidah dan peribadatan agama lain, berdasarkan Al Kafirun: 1-6; Al Baqarah: 42

Understanding others doesn’t mean agree with them. Kerukunan antar umat bukan berarti mencampuradukan agama.

MUH UNDERSTANDING……
