Ihsān: Pilar Agama yang Terabaikan


Jejak Pemikiran dan Refleksi

Hadits Jibril menegaskan tiga cabang, logi, atau pilar Agama:  Īmān, Islām dan Ihsān. Dua cabang pertama sangat populer karena terkait dengan apa yang dikenal sebagai Rukun Iman dan Rukun Islam, cabang terakhir kurang populer. Cabang ini dirumuskan secara sangat padat: “Sembahlah Allah seolah-olah engkau melihat-Nya, jika tidak mampu melihat-Nya, percayalah Dia senantiasa melihatmu”.

Layaknya fungsi cabang pada pohon, kekurangan cabang pasti akan mengurangi ‘keteduhan’ pohon Islam. Layaknya bangunan gedung, kekurangan satu pilar dari yang seharausnya akan mengurangi nilai seni arsitektur, mengganggu keseimbangan daya tahan atau bahkan merobohkan bangunan Islam.

Statistics and religion. This is perhaps an unusual combination for many. The first is dealing with the empirical world, the second with that beyond that world. However, that is my reflection regarding myself. As a statistician, I spent 30 years (1981-2011) serving BPS-Statistics Indonesia. After that my professional services were dedicated to TNP2K office (an office under the vice president office) for a few months and to ILO-ROAP as a senior statistician for half a year. Since 2012 most of my time is dedicated as an independent consultant on statistics-related work, mostly for ILO and on some occasions for some government offices Indonesia. My recent work (2019) was on estimating child labour in Indonesia for ILO Country Office Jakarta. As for personal interest, since young, I've been fascinated with the basic principles of religious thought, especially on its esoteric dimensions, essentiality, and universality. Sufism and perennial philosophy are of my special interest. On this subject, I have posted a number of short articles in my personal blog: https://uzairsuhaimi.blog.
