Makam Maulana Malik Ibrahim

Friday, January 20, 2012

Makam Maulana Malik Ibrahim di Gresik ini berada di tepi Jalan Malik Ibrahim di Desa Gapuro Sukolilo, Gresik. Kompleks Makam Maulana Malik Ibrahim tampak cukup bersih dan terawat dengan baik.

Maulana Malik Ibrahim dianggap termasuk salah seorang yang pertama-tama menyebarkan agama Islam di tanah Jawa, dan merupakan wali senior di antara para Walisongo lainnya. Beberapa versi menyatakan bahwa kedatangannya disertai beberapa orang. Daerah yang ditujunya pertama kali ialah desa Sembalo (sekarang adalah daerah Leran, Kecamatan Manyar, yaitu 9 kilometer ke arah utara kota Gresik).

Pertama-tama yang dilakukannya ialah mendekati masyarakat melalui pergaulan. Budi bahasa yang ramah-tamah senantiasa diperlihatkannya di dalam pergaulan sehari-hari. Ia tidak menentang secara tajam agama dan kepercayaan hidup dari penduduk asli, melainkan hanya memperlihatkan keindahan dan kabaikan yang dibawa oleh agama Islam. Berkat keramah-tamahannya, banyak masyarakat yang tertarik masuk ke dalam agama Islam. Aktivitas pertama yang dilakukan Maulana Malik Ibrahim ialah berdagang. Ia berdagang di tempat pelabuhan terbuka, yang sekarang dinamakan desa Roomo, Manyar. Berdagang membuatnya dapat berinteraksi dengan masyarakat banyak, selain itu raja dan para bangsawan dapat pula turut serta dalam kegiatan perdagangan tersebut sebagai pelaku jual-beli, pemilik kapal atau pemodal.

Setelah cukup mapan di masyarakat, Maulana Malik Ibrahim kemudian melakukan kunjungan ke ibukota Majapahit di Trowulan. Raja Majapahit meskipun tidak masuk Islam tetapi menerimanya dengan baik, bahkan memberikannya sebidang tanah di pinggiran kota Gresik. Wilayah itulah yang sekarang dikenal dengan nama desa Gapura.
Demikianlah, dalam rangka mempersiapkan kader untuk melanjutkan perjuangan menegakkan ajaran-ajaran Islam, Maulana Malik Ibrahim membuka pesantren-pesantren yang merupakan tempat mendidik pemuka agama Islam di masa selanjutnya. Hingga saat ini makamnya masih diziarahi orang-orang yang menghargai usahanya menyebarkan agama Islam berabad-abad yang silam. Setiap malam Jumat Legi, masyarakat setempat ramai berkunjung untuk berziarah. Ritual ziarah tahunan atau haul juga diadakan setiap tanggal 12 Rabi'ul Awwal, sesuai tanggal wafat pada prasasti makamnya. Pada acara haul biasa dilakukan khataman Al-Quran, mauludan (pembacaan riwayat Nabi Muhammad), dan dihidangkan makanan khas bubur harisah.

Makam Sunan Giri Di Gresik

Sunan Giri adalah anak pernikahan dari Maulana Ishaq (seorang mubaligh Islam dari Asia Tengah), dengan Dewi Sekardadu (putri Menak Sembuyu, penguasa wilayah Blambangan Banyuwangi pada masa-masa akhir Majapahit).

Karena kelahirannya dianggap telah membawa kutukan berupa wabah penyakit di wilayah tersebut. Dipaksa untuk membuang anaknya, Dewi Sekardadu menghanyutkannya ke laut. Kemudian, bayi tersebut ditemukan oleh sekelompok awak kapal (pelaut) dan dibawa ke Gresik. Di Gresik, dia diadopsi oleh seorang saudagar perempuan pemilik kapal, Nyai Gede Pinatih. Karena ditemukan di laut, dia menamakan bayi tersebut Joko Samudra. Ketika sudah cukup dewasa, Joko Samudra dibawa ibunya ke Surabaya untuk belajar agama kepada Sunan Ampel. Tak berapa lama setelah mengajarnya, Sunan Ampel mengetahui identitas sebenarnya dari murid kesayangannya itu. Kemudian, Sunan Ampel mengirimnya dan Makdhum Ibrahim (Sunan Bonang), untuk mendalami ajaran Islam di Pasai. Mereka diterima oleh Maulana Ishaq yang tak lain adalah ayah Joko Samudra. Di sinilah, Joko Samudra, yang ternyata bernama Raden Paku, mengetahui asal-muasal dan alasan mengapa dia dulu dibuang.

Lokasi makam Sunan Giri terletak di desa Giri, Kecamatan Kebomas, sekitar 4 km dari alun-alun kota Gresik. Tidak terlalu sulit untuk mencapai lokasi ini, karena terletak di antara perbatasan Gresik dan Surabaya. Sunan Giri, adalah salah satu wali Allah, yang terkenal sebagai mubaligh di dalam menyiarkan agama Islam. Beliau juga seorang Negarawan yang berperan didalam mendirikan kerajaan islam Demak. Pemilik nama asli Joko Samudra ini juga mendirikan pesantren Giri di desa Sidomukti Kebomas, Giri artinya Gunung yang berbukit. Sejak itu beliau dikenal dengan sebutan Sunan Giri.

Untuk mencapai kompleks makam Sunan Giri, harus meniti anak tangga yang cukup banyak. Di sisi kanan akan berjejer para penjual makanan dan souvenir sedangkan di sisi kiri para pengemis menadahkan tangan meminta belas kasihan, dari anak-anak hingga orang tua.

Makam Sunan giri berada pada sebuah lokasi yang dipagari oleh dinding kayu berhias kembang. Untuk memasukinya, diharapkan daftar terlebih dahulu kepada seorang penjaga makam yang duduk di sana lengkap dengan nampan tempat menampung derma dari para peziarah. Untuk masuk ke dalam makam Sunan Giri, perlu membungkukan badan sebab pintunya kecil, dengan kapasitas paling banyak 20 orang.

Dalam kompleks makam, juga terdapat kuburan anak-anak Sunan Giri seperti Raden Dalem dan Sunan Panepen. Rata-rata makam bercungkup tinggi dengan dominasi warna putih bersih.
Karena letaknya yang berada di datarang tinggi, udara lumayan segar dengan hembusan semilir angin.
