Bullsh**t with New Year’s Day

Barusan saja saat saya keluar kosan untuk beli makan malam, saya dikejutkan dengan ramainya jalan-jalan dengan kendaraan. Suara terompet bersahutan dimana-mana. Sejenak saya baru sadar kalo sekarang malam tahun baru. Pantas saja. Saya mungkin satu diantara sedikit orang yang tidak merayakan tahun baru ini. Mengapa saya tidak ikut merayakan tahun baru? Ada beberapa alasan. Untuk memahaminya kita mulai dengan mengetahui sejarah perayaan tahun baru.

SEJARAH TAHUN BARU

Originally observed on March 15 in the old Roman Calendar, New Year’s Day first came to be fixed in January 1, 153 BC, when the two Roman consuls,
after whom – in the Roman calendar – years were named and numbered,
began to be chosen on that date, for military reasons. However, dates
in March, coinciding with the first day of spring, or commemorating the
Annunciation of Jesus,
along with a variety of Christian feast dates were used throughout the
Middle Ages, though calendars often continued to display the months in
columns running from January to December in the Roman fashion.

Among the 7th-century pagans of Flanders and the Netherlands it was the custom to exchange gifts at the New Year, a pagan custom deplored by Saint Eligius (died 659 or 660),
who warned the Flemings and Dutchmen, “[Do not] make vetulas, [little
figures of the Old Woman], little deer or iotticos or set tables [for
the house-elf, compare Puck] at night or exchange New Year gifts or supply superfluous drinks [another Yule custom].” The quote is from the vita of Eligius written by his companion Oueen..

Most countries in Western Europe officially adopted January 1 as New Year’s Day somewhat before they adopted the Gregorian calendar. The Feast of the Annunciation, March 25 (9 months before December 25), was the first day of the new year in England until the adoption of the Gregorian Calendar in 1752. The March 25th date was called Annunciation Style; the January 1 date was called Circumcision Style, because this was the date of the Feast of the Circumcision, being the eighth day counting from December 25.

Some churches celebrate the Feast of the Circumcision of Christ on January 1, based on the belief that Jesus was born on December 25, and that, according to Jewish tradition, his circumcision would have taken place on the eighth day of his life (which would be January 1). The Catholic Church has also given the name Feast of the Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God to their holy day on January 1.

Dari penjelasan di atas dapat kita ketahui bahwa perayaan tahun baru merupakan kebiasaan dari orang-orang kafir.
Cukuplah bagi saya nasehat dari dua orang sahabat Rasulullah shalallahu alaihi wassalam

Umar bin Al-Khaththtab Radhiyallahu ‘anhu berkata, “Janganlah kalian
mengunjungi kaum musyrikin di gereja-gereja (rumah-rumah ibadah) mereka
pada hari besar mereka karena sesungguhnya kemurkaan Allah akan turun
atas mereka”

Beliau berkata lagi, “Hindarilah musuh-musuh Allah pada momentum hari-hari besar mereka”

Dan dari Abdullah bin Amr bin Al-Ash Radhiyallahu ‘anhu, dia
berkata, “Barangsiapa yang berdiam di negeri-negeri orang asing, lalu
membuat tahun baru dan festifal seperti mereka serta menyerupai mereka
hingga dia mati dalam kondisi demikian, maka kelak dia akan dikumpulkan
pada hari kiamat bersama mereka”

Kalo merayakan tahun baru tidak boleh, lalu di hari apa kita boleh merayakannya?

Islam memberikan solusinya.

Dalam hadits yang shahih dari Anas bin Malik Radhiyallahu ‘anhu, dia
berkata, Saat Rasulullah Shallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam datang ke
Madinah, mereka memiliki dua hari besar untuk bermain-main. Lalu beliau
bertanya, “Dua hari untuk apa ini ?”. Mereka menjawab, “Dua hari di
mana kami sering bermain-main di masa Jahiliyyah”. Lantas beliau
bersabda.
“Artinya : Sesungguhnya Allah telah menggantikan bagi kalian untuk
keduanya dua hari yang lebih baik dari keduanya : Iedul Adha dan Iedul
Fithri”
