Marroko – Ketua Dewan Pertimbangan MUI Din Syamsuddin menegaskan bahwa Islam sangat menghormati hak-hak kelompok minoritas agama lain yang tinggal di negeri mayoritas Islam. Demikian pernyataan Din pada Conference on Rights of Religious Minorities in Predominantly Muslim Countries, di Marrakesh, Morroko, 25-27/1. Konperensi yg diselenggarakan Kementerian Wakaf dan Urusan Islam Morroko dan Forum Promosi Perdamaian di Masyarakat Muslim pimpinan Syeikh Abdullah Bin Bayah yg berkedudukan di Abu Dhabi, diikuti 300an peserta terdiri dari ulama dan cendekiawan Muslim dan sejumlah tokoh non-Muslim dari berbagai negara dunia. Dari Indonesia, selain Din Syamsuddin juga hadir Prof. Amany Lubis dari Majelis Alimat Islam Sedunia.

“Konperensi ini bertolak dari Piagam Madinah yang dibuat Nabi Muhammad SAW dengan berbagai kelompok agama dan suku yg ada di Yatsrib waktu itu,”ujar Din

Din Syamsuddin dalam intervensi singkatnya pada konperensi menegaskan bahwa Piagam Madinah mengangkat dua subtansi utama, yakni hak terkait harkat manusia sebagai manusia, dan hak kebebasan beragama dan berkeyakinan. Dari keduanya terdapat hak2-hak derivatif yang bersifat umum, termasuk untuk mendapatkan perlakuan yang baik (muamalah hasanah), apalagi jika kalangan minoritas agama merupakan warga negara di negara2 Islam.

Dlm kesempatan itu, Din menjelaskan bhw Indonesia yg merupakan negara dgn mayoritas pendudukan beragama Islam telah sejak awal kelahirannya menerapkan prinsip demikian bahkan menjadi bagian penting dari konstitusi negara, seperti termaktub pada Ps 29 UUD 1945. Oleh karena itui, lanjut Din, prinsip kemanusiaan Piagam Madinah perlu diintegrasikan ke dalam konstitusi atau produk2 hukum negara2 Islam, bahkan diperjuangkan untuk menjadi dokumen internasional walau sdh ada DUHAM.

Din Syamsuddin yg  menjabat Co-President of World Conference of Religions for Peace, tidak lupa menekankan perlunya hak-hak minoritas Muslim di negara-negara mayoritas agama lain juga harus mendapat penghormatan dan pelayanan yg sama. Terakhir ini berkembang gejala menyedihkan terhadap Kaum  Muslim di beberapa negara Eropa dan Amerika, seperti pelarangan mendirikan masjid dgn menara, pelarangan memakai hijab, dan bentuk-bentuk Islamofobia lain, termasuk sikap berwawasan sempit dari Calon Presiden AS Donald Trump yg melarang orang Islam menjadi warga AS. Perdamaian Dunia yg sejati hanya akan terwujud melalui penegakan keadilan.

“Ketidakadilan global menjadi akar malapetaka dunia,” tegas Din Syamsuddin. (mu)

Donald Trump Kian Lama Kian Menggelikan

DT_437122_620Jakarta – Ketua Dewan Pertimbangan Majelis Ulama Indonesia (Wantim MUI) Din Syamsuddin menyebut wacana bakal calon Presiden AS dari Partai Republik Donald Trump soal pelarangan Muslim masuk ke Amerika Serikat menggelikan seperti lelucon.

“Ini menggelikan ada seseorang di era modern ini, era globalisasi ini, begitu sempit pikirannya dan ingin melarang sebagian orang memasuki Amerika,” kata Din di Jakarta, Rabu.

Menurut dia, cara pandang Trump ini sangat sempit di saat banyak pihak membuka diri dalam keberagaman, dan sikapnya tidak bisa diterima dunia.

Trump mengeluarkan pernyataan itu setelah terjadi penembakan massal oleh suami-istri Muslim di San Bernardino, California, Amerika Serikat.

Miliuner dan mantan bintang reality show televisi ini memang dikenal dengan retorika-retorikanya yang rasis dan anti-Islam.

Muhammadiyah chairman Din Syamsuddin has represented Islam at a conference entitled Protect the Earth Dignify Humanity: the Moral Dimensions of Climate Change and Sustainable Development.

The conference was held in Vatican City on Tuesday and was organized by the Pontifical Academy of Sciences, Religions for Peace and the United Nations Sustainable Development Network, Din said in a statement on Wednesday.

There were some 100 participants, including diplomats, policy makers, scientists and researchers, businessmen and clerics. The event aimed to find a consensus on the significance of climate change to sustainable development.

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon opened the conference, while the president of the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace, Cardinal Peter Turkson, delivered the keynote speech. The event discussed science and technological perspectives, local and global practical aspects for solutions and the moral dimensions of climate change and sustainable development.

Din was a speaker in the session themed Justice and Responsibility, Moral Dimensions of Sustainable Development and Climate Change. The other speakers were Rabbi David Roshen from Israel, Olve Tveit of the World Church Council, Metropolitan Immanuel France from the Orthodox church, Rev. Kosho Niwano from Japan and Swami Brahmanda from India.

Din said that Islam was a religion of nature with some 750 of around 6,000 verses in the Koran mentioning nature and environment and all its inter-connections.

As well as presenting verses on the creation of the universe, biodiversity, and the balance in creation and the environment, Din highlighted a number of Islamic moral values and ethics key to sustainable development and environmental protection.

The principals included that nature and the environment were God’s creations and thus had a sacred dimension; that the earth was God’s blessing for humans, and that humans did not own it but were merely inhabiting it and borrowing it from the next generations. As such, Din argued, humans had to treat nature justly and responsibly for the benefit of future generations.

Din asked all parties to build a coalition to glorify the environment, involving clerics, politicians and businessmen, as well as other stakeholders. (nvn)
