Ajeng and Gilang : a Javanese wedding ceremony

•January 2, 2012 • Leave a Comment

A note from my cousin wedding at Bale Asri Pusdai Friday, 30 December 2011..

It’s a Javanese style wedding reception.. A traditional Javanese wedding is a most colorful and memorable event. With fresh flowers carefully placed on carved wood decorations, the atmosphere represents very well a facet of the Indonesian traditions flourishing all over our country.

Normally the celebration lasts two days. The first day is similar to a shower, as is commonly known in the western hemisphere, and the second day is the marriage ceremony and the wedding celebrations. The future husband does not normally attend the shower celebration which is reserved for the immediate family and very close friends. But there can be exceptions… Javanese people are very smooth and resilient.

The bride and groom were beautiful and handsome. The traditional Javanese costumes were superbly colorful and glamor, and the make-ups were excellent.

I don’t know much about Javanese wedding culture, all I know is that every move has got a meaning, every gesture is a symbol of life.

Ajeng dan Gilang, congratulation to both of you, all the best for an everlasting marriage, “sakinah, mawaddah, warahhmah”.

Here are a few frames from the akad nikah and ceremony..

Eid al-Adha 1432 H

•November 6, 2011 • Leave a Comment

And when he (Ismail) was old enough to walk with him (Ibrahim (AS)), he said: ‘O my son! I have seen in a vision that I offer thee in sacrifice: Now see what is thy view!” He said: ‘O my father! Do that which you are Commanded, Insha’Allah (if Allah wills), you shall find me of as-Sabirin (the patient ones).’ Then, when they had both submitted themselves (to the Will of Allah), he had laid him prostrate on his forehead (or on the side of his forehead for slaughtering); and We called out to him: ‘O Ibrahim! You have fulfilled the vision!’ Verily, Thus, do We reward the Muhsinun (good-doers). Verily, that indeed was a manifest trial. And We ransomed him with a great sacrifice (a ram). And We left for him (a goodly remembrance) among generations (to come) in later times. ‘Salam (peace) be upon Ibrahim’. Thus indeed We reward the Muhsinin.” [Surah Al Saffat 37:102-105]

The sacrifice was a trial for both Ibrahim (AS) and Ismail (AS) and they both readily agreed to submit their will to Allah. Today, Muslims lack this spirit and fortitude to sacrifice in the Way of Allah and submit to His Will. And this is why they are depressed and underestimated by the Kuffar. If today, Muslims arouse and generate the courage and determination to put forwards one’s own self in the Path of Allah and sacrifice their wealth and possession for the sake of Allah, then Allah does not renounce His true worshipers.
