—  These are the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander languages that existed prior to British invasion. There were around 250 languages and around 600 dialects. Now, only 145 Indigenous Australian languages exist with 110 of them being “critically endangered”.

Dahulu, orang Quraisy meneguhkan makar mereka, melepas kuda dan melayangkan panah untuk menghancurkan Islam. Pada akhirnya, mereka tidur dalam ketakutan, meracau sebab kekalahan di Badar melawan tentara Muhammad.

Dahulu, bangsa Arab mengencangkan sabuk perangnya, bertekad melumatkan Islam dari dataran Arabia di medan Ahzab. Hasilnya; mereka kalah telak, terpecah, dan 5 tahun selepas itu jazirah Arab menjadi jazirah Muhammad.

Dahulu, kekuatan terbesar di muka bumi bersikukuh ingin menghancurkan Islam dari wajah dunia. Kisra penguasa Persia mengirim ratusan ribu tentaranya berbaris-baris berlapis gajah. Ternyata, tak sampai setahun, singgasananya terkubur di bawah kandang kuda tentara muslim.

Kembali, dunia bersungguh ingin memecah Islam ketika Paus Urbanus berpidato di Konsili Clermont, “hancurkan Islam, sembelih pemeluknya!” Lalu, berakhirlah pasukan 22 negeri Eropa itu di medan Hittin, tinggallah jasad tak bertuan yang dikelupas paruh-paruh burung bangkai.

Lagi-lagi, dunia masih ingin menggembosi kejayaan Islam dan menghempasnya, kali ini Mongol dari sabana Asia Tengah, membakar Baghdad dan mengancam warga dunia. Pada akhirnya, mereka kalah di Ain Jalut, dan hebatnya; 100 tahun kemudian mereka menjadi pembela Islam.

Masih saja, tak rela mereka melihat Islam tegak. Berbarislah pasukan Eropa bersenapan, meriam berdebum mendebarkan melawan kekhalifahan. Namun meriam Sulayman Al Qanuni berdebum lebih dahsyat, kapal perangnya berlayar lebih gagah. Dan mereka kembali kalah.

Islam akan tetap ada. Umat Islam akan senantiasa bertahan. Tak peduli seberapa banyak musuh bergerombol memukul bergantian, sekalipun tentara persia, romawi, mongol dan salib bergabung jadi satu.

Umat Islam pasti akan bertahan, hingga jatuhnya bendera tentara romawi di Dabiq, hingga lonceng di Roma berubah jadi lantunan takbir. “Mana yang akan ditaklukkan terlebih dahulu, Konstantinopel atau Roma?"tanya sahabat pada Rasulullah. "Kota Heraklius dulu, kemudian Roma.”

Disarikan dari : Katîbah At Târikh

—  @edgarhamas

Sesaat, ia telah berada di ujung, mengobrak-abrik pertahananmu.

Detik selanjutnya, jauh melesat dari perhitunganmu, ia berhasil menembus tembok kebanggaanmu.

Kala itu, apa-apa yang kau remehkan telah menjadi meriam bagi dirimu sendiri.

Kau ingin menyesali, tapi tak ada guna.

Kau ingin melawan, tapi tak ada daya

Kau ingin bertahan, itu hanya sia-sia.

Sesegera mungkin, kau harus kembali pada satu-satunya pencipta.

Ya, kau harus!

  • Me: I want equality between genders, races and people of different sexualities, but I'm not a feminist.
  • Feminist: HA! What you just described is feminism!
  • Me: No, considering feminists closed down all male abuse shelters causing an owner of one to end his life, they sent death threats and doxxed Erin Pizzey for trying to open a men's abuse shelter, they actively made the laws of rape to always affect male perpetuators and female victims but never female perpetuators, they tried closing down female prisons, they constantly take advantage of double standarts that favour them such as less jail-time for women and a higher chance to win parental custody over their kids even if they are the abusers, all while constantly complaining over double standarts that don't favour them.
  • Feminist:
  • Me: Also they tend to throw trans women under the bus, they always prioritize female LGBT+ members even though the male ones are just as important, they constantly complain about sexualisation when a woman in a fictional work is simply feminine or slightly more voluptuous, they ignore women who disagree with their movement, AND GOD FORBID if you are a woman against feminism who also happens to be transgender because they will try to trigger your dysphoria.
  • Feminist:
  • Me: They speak their minds on circumcision all while chanting "no uterus no opinion" when talking about abortion. Not to mention that abortion is something done consensually that doesn't result in your genitals being mutilated forever, while circumcision is something done to a baby that cannot consent and it's basically male genital mutilation..
  • Feminist:
  • Me: They dismiss guys' opinions with "male tears" even though raped boys are told to like it, abused boys are told to "man up", and the suicide rate in boys is much higher than in girls. Not to mention that all male abuse shelters are closed BECAUSE OF FEMINISTS.
  • Feminist:
  • Me: Not to mention when the Elliot roger incident happened they claimed it was because of misoginy that he killed them, when it was because he had mental issues. When someone brings up his mental illness they would dismiss it with "you're just perpetuating the stereotype that all mental people are violent!!" even though stereotypes can sometimes be true and he was indeed violent because of his mental illness and over-inflated ego. then feminists started grouping completely innocent men with rapists and murderers and when people called them out they said they were "derailing" and "focusing more on themselves rather than the issue" even though they were just trying to establish that NO NOT 51% OF THE POPULATION ARE RAPISTS AND MURDERERS AND MISOGYNISTS. And when someone says that feminists hate men there will always be a feminist who will scream "but NOT ALL FEMINISTS HATE MEN??? ONLY THE RADICAL ONES!!!". Kind of hypocritical isn't it?

Ibadah sebagai Piknik

Bagi anak-anak, Ramadan menjadi bulan penuh acara bermain. Apalagi di kampung seperti yang saya rasakan dulu, ibadah di bulan Ramadan terasa menyenangkan, nyaris tanpa paksaan, karena dilaksanakan dengan penuh canda. Kadang terasa seperti piknik.

Ada banyak toleransi yang dinikmati anak-anak seperti saya dulu selama Ramadan. Waktu bermain praktis lebih panjang dan bahkan kadang tidak dibatasi. Tidak ada jam malam. Kalau memang tetap harus pulang ke rumah, biasanya saya tetap diizinkan bermain lebih larut dari biasa. Itu pun saya bisa keluar rumah lebih cepat, saat hari masih gelap, dan Subuh masih jauh. Kapan lagi anak-anak bisa ke luar rumah jam 2 dini hari untuk ikut rombongan “obrog-obrog” yang berkeliling membangunkan warga untuk sahur?

Bermain adalah fitur yang melekat selama Ramadan bagi anak-anak. Dari pagi sampai malam, hampir dirayakan dengan bermain. Selepas salat Subuh bisa jalan-jalan. Siangnya bisa pergi memancing. Sorenya bisa ngabuburit dengan naik sepeda, atau bahkan main bola sejam menjelang buka puasa. Selepas Tarawih bisa bermain petak umpet atau bahkan main bola di halaman mesjid.

Segala macam petasan pun seperti “dihalalkan”. Sebelum Ramadan, meriam buatan dari bambu yang diledakkan dengan karbit sudah disiapkan lebih dulu. Mau pagi, siang, sore atau bahkan kadang membangunkan orang untuk sahur pun meriam bambu dapat digunakan.

Keramahan Ramadan saya alami benar saat dilaksanakannya salat Tarawih. Secara istimewa, entah bagaimana ceritanya, salat Tarawih mungkin menjadi satu-satunya salat yang, dalam ingatan masa kecil saya, “diperkenankan” untuk dijadikan sarana bergurau dan bercanda.

Dan itu memang hanya terjadi pada Tarawih, tidak pada salat-salat lain. Ketika salat Isya, anak-anak beribadah dengan sangat khusyuk. Tapi ketika Tarawih, kekhusyukan itu mendadak berkurang bagi anak-anak. Mungkin karena Tarawih bukan salat wajib. Karena sunah itulah, makanya toleransi terhadap anak-anak pun berbeda.

Saya masih ingat salah satu kejadian paling menggelikan yang pernah terjadi hampir 25 tahun silam. Saya punya seorang teman masa kecil. Dalam salah satu sesi salat Tarawih, masih rakaat pertama, dia membuat keisengan yang membuat semua orang tertawa. Kebetulan teman itu ayahnya bernama “Amin”. Saat imam selesai membaca surat Al Fatihah, teman saya itu mendahului jamaah yang lain dengan berteriak: “Bapaaaaaaaak!”

The sad story of Capt Elisha Chapin who was “killed by the savages” at Williamstown, in the county of Berkshire, 17th July, 1756, aged 49 years. His wife Meriam lived on another 34 years after his unfortunate death, passing on in October of 1800. And such is life.

THE MABO CASE

**Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander persons are warned that the following material contains images of those who are now deceased.** 

Today marks the 22 years since the High Court handed down its landmark decision on Indigenous land rights after a 10-year legal battle by Murray Island man Eddie ‘Koiki’ Mabo. 

The Mabo decision altered the foundation of land law in Australia by overturning the doctrine of terra nullius (land belonging to no-one) on which British claims to possession of Australia were based. This recognition inserted the legal doctrine of native title into Australian law. The judgments of the High Court in the Mabo case recognised the traditional rights of the Meriam people to their islands in the eastern Torres Strait. The Court also held that native title existed for all Indigenous people in Australia prior to the establishment of the British Colony of New South Wales in 1788. In recognising that Indigenous people in Australia had a prior title to land taken by the Crown since Cook’s declaration of possession in 1770, the Court held that this title exists today in any portion of land where it has not legally been extinguished. The decision of the High Court was swiftly followed by the Native Title Act 1993 (Cth) which attempted to codify the implications of the decision and set out a legislative regime under which Australia’s Indigenous people could seek recognition of their native title rights (Australian Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies, 2012).

Sadly, Mr Mabo was not present when the decision was handed down to recognise the Meriam people as the native title holders of traditional lands on Mer (Murray Island). He passed away due to cancer five months earlier, aged 56. His fighting spirit lives on strong and has paved the way for acknowledgment of culture and land.

The man himself, Eddie 'Koiki’ Mabo.
