manasik haji Ar Ir

Ar Ir's manasik haji

Minggu lalu Ar dan Ir dan ratusan murid Tk Islam se Semarang selatan melaksanakan manasik haji, sebagai simulasi pelaksanaan rukun Islam yang kelima, pergi ke Mekkah untuk berhaji.
Last week Ar and Ir and hundreds of Islamic kindergartens students in South Semarang did a manasik haji. Manasik haji is a simulation to a Islamic Pilgrimage to Mecca, to do the fifth rukun as a moslem, and be home as a haji.

Buat muslim Indonesia, pergi haji butuh usaha besar, terutama sangunya. Memang buat sebagian orang, uang bukan masalah, tapi buat sebagian besar yang lain, itu perlu usaha lebih.
For us, moslems who live in Indonesia, going to Mecca to do haji is a big effort, mostly about the funding. Off course, to some people money doesn't matter, but for most of us, it does.

Alhamdulillah kedua orang tuaku, juga kakak perempuanku dan suaminya sudah melaksanakannya. Sekarang jadi mimpiku dan suami untuk menjadi yang berikutnya.
Alhamdulillah both my parents, and my eldest sister and her husband have already done it, and it becomes my dream to be the next to go.

Menyaksikan anak-anak berpura-pura menjalankan ibadah haji membuatku trenyuh, dan bertanya-tanya kapankah, atau akankah aku pernah punya kesempatan sekali seumur hidup melakukan haji yang sesungguhnya.
Watching those kids pretending doing the pilgrimage has made my eyes watering and wondering when will I be able to, or will I ever have a chance of a life time to do the real one.

Semoga Allah mengabulkan permohonan kami, amin.
May Allah fulfill our wishes, amin.

This sound more of a religious tradition than educational? It sounds like fun. I'm glad your boys are able to go through it.

Surely those lovely children are twins! And I hope your dream of making the pilgrimage comes true.

Beautifully done - I'm sure you'll do your own pilgrimage when the time is right.

fahmi said: amen. did ar & ir wore underwear? coz the real pilgrim only allowed to wear two pieces when doing ihram
-->ar ir itu masih pake kancut dan celana pendek. aku mau makein singlet tapi ga boleh ma gurunya. btw, kamu pake dua lembar itu doang? :P
ar and ir did wore underwear and even a short. I wanted them to wear a shirt but the teacher told them to take them off. by the way, how were you when wearing only two pieces of fabrics?

I would call it a religius educational tradition :D

@rinkly rimes:
yes they are twins. thanks, amen.


it is a great program to introduce important thing like that to children. thanks.

I hope that one day you will be able to make the pilgrimage. I bet it is a fun activity for the kids to prepare them for the real thing one day. only allowed to wear 2 pieces of fabric, humm that would be a trick! :)

I did not know that about the only two piece of material. How funny that they asked you that.

The boys are so adorable, they don't even look ornery.
