BACA.NEWS - Migration and Civilization Transformation, The momentum of the Islamic New Year 1443 Hijriyah as an amazing historical epic for the paradigm of world civilization is very important for us to reflect in the midst of the changing face of the new world that invites anxiety and restlessness in the lives of the world's people.

Reviving the memory of the history of hijrah in the midst of world sorrow due to climate change and the Covid-19 pandemic is energy and spirit in reviving optimism and the importance of reviving the transformation of civilization amidst the erosion of moral values.

The Hijrah event in many literacies, when viewed from a metaphysical point of view, is a command from God, but from a sociological point of view it is likened to a historical symbol that has had a very large and devastating impact on social change in the history of human civilization.

The presence of a book of 100 of the most influential figures in the world that places the Prophet Muhammad as the top leader is an option that departs from the portrait of the Hijrah of the Prophet Muhammad SAW as a strategic, political step as a carrier of prophetic treatises containing the content of civilizing transformation.

The definition of hijrah in general is often synonymous with leaving an unsafe country for another country that promises safety and comfort, especially in carrying out religious teachings.

Although physically and geographically, the hijrah event is always associated with the activities of the Prophet SAW and his companions, for today's Muslims there is still an opportunity to migrate.

In this context, hijrah means making efforts to transform and reconstruct oneself and society towards a more civilized quality.

1 Muharram as the new year of Islam, should be used as a momentum to position oneself upright, straight, Istiqomah in injecting memories of the values ​​of struggle, persistence, sacrifice and optimism of the Prophet Muhammad in realizing the prophetic vision in forming a progressive (civil) society even in the shadows. shadow of intimidation, threats, terror, suffering and dehumanization as well as other separatist actions.

The historical tragedy of the stressful journey of the Prophet Muhammad, known as the hijrah, is proof of his example of tenacity in principles, commitment to struggle, and diplomatic skills that are imprinted in his body and soul in carrying out the duties of treatise and leadership.

With his noble character, he is able to display Islam in a complete face, not only making Islam a cultural movement but also being able to display a structural movement that is authoritative, wise in taking all forms of decisions. So that the presence of Islam brought by the Prophet Muhammad after experiencing a period (fatroh) of prophetic emptiness is not only present as a religion that takes care of personal affairs, but also becomes an important pillar for the social system as implemented in Medina.

Medina which is the center of reference for a social system that transcends time etymologically in itself contains the meaning of civilization.

The name change from Yasrib to Medina is a reflection of the strong commitment of Muslims to change and express themselves into civilized and progressive people who instill the values ​​of civility in the life of society and the state.

In the leadership of the Prophet Muhammad SAW. In Medina, he was able to formulate the concept of ukhuwah (brotherhood) in managing the lives of the people. The concept of ukhuwah (brotherhood) which was formulated and applied in its leadership in the midst of the heterogeneous and pluralistic life of the Medina community, including ukhuwah Islamiyah (brotherhood of faith) including ukhuwah wathaniyah (brotherhood of countrymen) and ukhuwah Basyariyah (brotherhood of fellow human beings).

In Medina, the Prophet Muhammad, who was sovereign and elected as the leader of the unification of all ethnic groups, was able to protect all citizens, the law was enforced without favoritism, even the Prophet gave a political statement in public if the Prophet's own son (Fatima) stole, he would be punished with his own hands as evidence in the eyes of the law and the norms of society, all humans are equal.

Through the concept of human brotherhood (Ukhuwah Basyariyah), the Prophet Muhammad on the one hand wanted to set an example for his people to live up to the diversity and differences between them as God's grace, on the other hand the Prophet Muhammad at the same time proved able to unite differences, interests in brotherly bonds in different societies. -different religions, cultural directions and even beliefs, nationality, Arabs and Jews are all cohesive, harmonious, egalitarian between one group and another with the same responsibility to maintain security and order and have the same right to obtain security guarantees.

The leadership ethos that was driven by the Prophet Muhammad as the embodiment of his civilized traits of honesty, trustworthiness, fatonah and tabligh (transformative) brought Medina as a modern state, even too modern for the size of the era. This further shows the expertise and ability of the Prophet in managing a good and dynamic state and government organization.

In the context of Indonesia, of course, what we hope for is an enlightening concept of hijrah, a hijrah that contains the content of civilizing transformations in various lines of life, namely the realization of an ideal people (khaira ummah) who are civilized in the NKRI container, as the ideals of the founding fathers of the nation.

Strengthening the spirit of hijrah in transforming the values ​​of civility in the public sphere is very important in the midst of the spread of social phenomena and national problems that have become the stage for dramatization and orchestration of today's life.

Orchestration of a group of people who act on their behalf with In the name of democracy, public politeness is abolished; in the name of openness, the disgrace of others is exposed; in the name of press freedom, the code of ethics is abandoned. In the name of globalization, local wisdom is put into a museum, in the name of academic freedom, teachers and scholars are abused; In the name of increasing regional income, shirk and sexual tourism are opened; In the name of national stability, freedom of expression is silenced.

And there are many other social phenomena that are prone to bring social rifts. To ignore this phenomenon means to allow the erosion of civilized values ​​in the nation and state.

So the spirit of reviving the memory of Hijrah for Muslims is a form of strong commitment and courage to transform themselves into a more positive and constructive direction as a pioneer in bringing the vision of Islam rahmatan lilalamin and becoming the best Ummah who always brings and spreads the benefits for all creatures in nature. universe.
