The Exemplary of Mbah Ali


Mbah Ali was 81 years old. That’s more or less, because there is no official document to make sure that besides the ID cards and the wrinkles on his face. At that age Mbah Ali still eager to work. The rest Mbah Ali use his time for worship.

Idul Qurban this time, the Qurban committee has raised Qurban funds of some residents. If we look at the notice board of the mosque (Masjid Al Huda of Kelor), then the name of Mbah Ali is listed there.

A little gaffe can be found, look at the nominal amount Mbah Ali submitted to the committee was far from the amount specified. Plain speech when handing the Qurban funds able to touch the deepest heart of each person who heard. Than the Qurban committee was ‘only’ able to exalt the greatness of his name.

Ah … If only the spirit of Qurban can be owned by every citizen … Than how beautiful it is. Mbah Ali … We respect you.

Keteladanan Mbah Ali

Saat ini usia mbah Ali 81 tahun. Itu kurang lebih, karena tak ada dokumen resmi yang memastikan hal tersebut selain KTP dan kerutan di wajahnya. Di usia yang sangat lanjut tersebut mbah Ali masih bersemangat bekerja. Selebihnya mbah Ali banyak mengalokasikan waktunya untuk beribadah.

Menjelang hari raya Idul Qurban kali ini, panitia qurban telah menghimpun dana qurban dari beberapa warga. Jika kita melihat di papan pengumuman masjid (masjid Al Huda Kelor), maka nama mbah Ali tercantum di sana.

Sedikit kejanggalan mungkin akan ditemukan, melihat jumlah nominal yang diserahkan mbah Ali kepada panitia jauh dari jumlah yang ditentukan. Penuturannya yang polos ketika menyerahkan uang qurban mampu menyentuh relung hati terdalam setiap orang yang mendengarnya. Ketika itu panitia ‘hanya’ dapat mengagungkan kebesaran namaNya.

Ah…kalau saja semangat berkurban tersebut dimiliki setiap warga negara…alangkah indahnya. Mah Ali…kami menaruh hormat padamu!
