The remarkable story of an Indian man’s odyssey from Australia to find his mom in his homeland using Google Earth after a quarter-century is headed to the big screen.

Saroo Brierley was 4 years old when he jumped on a train in rural India and ended up 1,000 miles away in the eastern city of Kolkata, where he became a beggar before being adopted by an Australian couple and taken to Tasmania.

Brierley graduated from college and became a successful businessman, but he never forgot his native country and spent countless hours studying Google Earth to find his way back.

The Winston Co. bought the rights for the movie, to be called “Lion,” for $12 million at the Cannes Film Festival, Central European News reported.

The film, an adaptation of Brierley’s book “A Long Way Home,” will be directed by Garth Davis, and feature “Slumdog Millionaire” actor Dev Patel and Nicole Kidman.

Brierley said he rarely had enough to eat as a child and would often ride trains and beg with his brother. On a fateful day, he napped at a station and awoke to find he was alone.

“I opened my eyes and couldn’t see my brother, but I saw a train in front of me with the door open and for some reason I thought he was on board,” he said, CEN reported. “I ran over and jumped on the train just as the doors closed and it pulled out of the station, and it was only then that I realized he wasn’t there. I think you could say that split-second decision changed my life forever.”

He was later rescued and put in a juvenile home and then into an orphanage, where he was adopted and started his successful life as an Aussie — eventually deciding to pore over maps in his homesick quest.

“I traveled around a lot with my brothers so I had seen a lot of the area around the house,” he said. “I remembered landmarks. For example, there was a waterfall where we used to play and the dam. But I didn’t know the city or town’s name and finding a small neighborhood in a vast country proved to be nearly impossible.”

But he persisted with satellite images and explored the vast network of rail lines across India — using his well-honed memory to recall landmarks.

“Everything just started to match. So I traced a road back that I would follow back as a child, and before I knew it, I was looking at the suburb where I had grown up, and just on the right of it was the house I had grown up in. I couldn’t sleep for that whole night,” he said.

He finally embarked on his journey, but was stunned when he found the house in Khandwa, a small city in Madhya Pradesh, empty and locked.

“I just thought the worst, I thought perhaps everyone’s gone, my whole family’s died, they’ve passed away,” he said. “But lucky for me, this lady came out of a doorway holding a baby, and she said, ‘Can I help you?’ And I said to her, ‘My name is Saroo and these are my family members’ names.’ Another person comes in and I sort of revealed my mantra to them as well.”

After talking to several others, one said: “Now I’m going to take you to your mother.”

“She looked so much shorter than I remembered when I was a 4-year-old child,” he said. “But she walked forward, and I walked forward, and my emotions and tears and the chemical in my brain, you know, it was like a nuclear fusion.”

Bani Israel, Humanisme Islam dan Pernikahan Syarifah

Di masa lalu, pernikahan antara Bani Ismail (Arab) dengan Kaum Bani Israil adalah sesuatu hal yang biasa.

Bahkan salah seorang istri Rasulullah, Shafiyah binti Huyay ( صفية بنت حيي), berasal dari suku Bani Nadhir (salah satu suku Bani Israel yang bermukim disekitar Madinah).

Dan di kalangan Bani Israil, ada yang meyakini bahwa Imam Ali ra. (sepupu Nabi Muhammad), masih memiliki hubungan kekerabatan dengan Pemimpin Bani Israel, Nabi Daud Alaihi Salam.

Nabi Muhammad dan Humanisme Muslim

Diriwayatkan Ibnu Hisyam, Rasulullah berpesan dalam Haji Wada’:

“Wahai manusia, sesungguhnya Tuhan kalian satu, nenek moyang kalian satu, kalian semua berasal dari Adam, dan Adam itu dari tanah”

“yang paling mulia di antara kalian di sisi Allah adalah yang paling bertakwa di antara kalian”

“tidaklah orang Arab atas non Arab dan tidak pula non Arab atas orang Arab, tidak pula orang berkulit merah atas orang yang berkulit putih, tidak pula orang yang berkulit putih atas orang yang berkulit merah itu ada kelebihan, kecuali dengan takwa.”

Di dalam catatan sejarah, Rasulullah dikenal sangat anti rasialis, beliau pernah melamar Zainab bint jahsy (seorang wanita keturunan Bangsawan Quraish), untuk anak angkatnya Zaid bin Haritsah (seorang bekas budak).

Di masa itu, juga terjadi pernikahan seorang bekas budak bernama Salim, dengan seorang wanita keturunan bangsawan Quraish bernama Hindun bint Al-Walid ibn Utbah ibn Rabi’ah.

Dan seorang mantan budak Bilal bin Rabbah, yang telah menikahi saudara perempuan Abdurrahman ibn Auf, yang berasal dari Keluarga Bangsawan Suku Quraish.

Pernikahan Syarifah dalam Sejarah

Teladan dari Rasulullah sebagai seorang Humanisme Muslim Sejati, juga di-ikuti oleh para keturunannya, yaitu anak cucu beliau dari puterinya Fatimah az-Zahrah ra.

Sebagaimana kita pahami, Fatimah az-Zahrah ra. merupakan isteri dari Imam Ali ra, dari pernikahan ini melahirkan 4 orang anak, yaitu : Hasan, Husain, Zainab dan Ummu Kalsum.

Di dalam permasalahan perkawinan, mereka lebih mengutamakan kepada tingkat ketaqwaan, daripada garis keturunan.

Setidaknya tercatat 7 peristiwa pernikahan, antara Syarifah Ahlul Bayt dengan Muslim dari golongan Ahwal (bukan berasal dari keturunan Rasulullah), pada masa awal Perkembangan Islam, yaitu :

1. Sukainah binti Husain bin Fathimah binti Muhammad Rasulullah, menikah dengan Zaid bin Umar bin Utsman bin Affan.

2. Fathimah binti Husain bin Fathimah binti Muhammad Rasulullah, menikah dengan Abdullah bin Amr bin Utsman bin Affan.

3. Fathimah binti Ali Zainal Abidin bin Husain bin Fathimah binti Muhammad Rasulullah, menikah dengan Al-Mundzir bin Zubair bin Al-Awam.

4. Idah binti Ali Zainal Abidin bin Husain bin Fathimah binti Muhammad Rasulullah, menikah dengan Nuh bin Ibrahim bin Muhammad bin Thalhah.

5. Fathimah binti Hasan Al-Mutsanna bin Hasan bin Fathimah binti Muhammad Rasulullah, menikah dengan Ayyub bin Maslamah Al-Makhzumi.

6. Ummul Qasim binti Hasan Al-Mutsanna bin Hasan bin Fathimah binti Muhammad Rasulullah, menikah dengan Marwan bin Aban bin Utsman bin Affan.

7.  Fathimah binti Abdullah bin Hassan bin Husain bin Fathimah binti Muhammad Rasulullah, menikah dengan Idris bin Abbas bin Uthman bin Syafie bin Saib bin Abu Yazid, dari pernikahan ini melahirkan  Imam Syafei (Muhammad bin Idris asy-Syafi`i)
