Perjalanan Ibadah Haji, Paling Fenomenal yang tercatat di dalam Sejarah ?

Inilah kisah perjalanan Haji paling Fenomenal dalam Sejarah…

Dia adalah Mansa Musa, yang merupakan kaisar di kerajaan Mali di Afrika Barat. Ia memerintah pada tahun-tahun keemasan Mali antara 1312 dan 1337 M. Ia menjadi semacam selebriti internasional pada tahun 1324.

Di tahun itu, Musa melakukan perjalanan sejauh 3.000 mil untuk menunaikan ibadah haji. Perjalanan spiritual yang memerlukan waktu sembilan bulan itu diiringi 60.000 pengiring dan 80 unta.

Sepanjang perjalanan, Sang Kaisar mensedekahkan hartanya bagi kaum fakir dan miskin, serta memberikan bantuan bagi pembangunan masjid.

Di dalam wikipedia, tertulis…

Musa made his pilgrimage in 1324, his procession reported to include 60,000 men, 12,000 slaves who each carried four-pound gold bars, heralds dressed in silks who bore gold staffs, organized horses and handled bags…

Musa provided all necessities for the procession, feeding the entire company of men and animals. Also in the train were 80 camels, which varying reports claim carried between 50 and 300 pounds of gold dust each…

He gave away the gold to the poor he met along his route. Musa not only gave to the cities he passed on the way to Mecca, including Cairo and Medina, but also traded gold for souvenirs. Furthermore, it has been recorded that he built a mosque each and every Friday…

Diperkirakan Harta Kekayaan Mansa Musa, jika disesuaikan dengan inflasi saat ini, senilai US$ 400 miliar (sumber : MANSA MUSA – NET WORTH $400 BILLION). Jumlah harta ini, mengungguli kekayaan Rothschild (US$ 350 miliar), John D Rockefeller (US$ 340 miliar) dan Henry Ford (US$ 199 miliar) (Sumber : Dream.co.id).

WaLlahu a’lamu bishshawab
