REPUBLICA.CO.ID, SLEMAN -- Historian Aguk Irawan reveals the struggles of KH Hashim Asy'ari in consolidating the power of Indonesian Muslims to support the struggle of the Palestinian People.

“KH Hashim invites Muslims to collect funds provided to the Palestinian People through Palestine Fons and Rajabiyah Assembly, starting on the 19th of Ramadan 1356 AH or November 23, 1937,” Aguk said in a press release received by Republika on Monday (6/11/2023).

This was stated by Aguk in a study entitled “Knowing the Figure of Hadratussyekh KH Hashim Asy'ari, Uniting the Muslims of Indonesia” in Ponpes Minggir, Sleman, on Saturday (4/11/2023). He continued, KH Hashim did it by organizing dozens of Islamic organizations in Indonesia.

“As a result, at that time about 600,000 guilders were successfully collected and sent to Palestine for the struggle of Muslims there,” Aguk said.

Aguk Irawan also revealed the strategic move of KH Hashim Asy'ari who also cleverly read the opportunities born of the world conflict (namely World War II and in Asia known as the Greater East Asia War or the Pacific War) to extricate Indonesia from the Dutch colony.

A number of strategic and tactical steps were taken by KH Hashim Asya'ari to end the colonization in Indonesia, including by issuing the Jihad Resolution 22 October 1945 decreed by Mbah Hashim (NU) supported by all Islamic community organizations outside NU.

“Then it is true that Hadratussyeikh KH Hashim Asy'ari is called the initiator of Indonesian independence and unifying Muslims,” Aguk said.

The Hadratussyeikh KH Hashim Asy'ari study initiated by Tebu Ireng Jombang Pesantren, Minggir Sleman Pesantren, and Swara NU Podcast was attended by about 100 participants, more than expected.

The participants, initially expected only among NU students and young people, also exceeded expectations. Some of the participants were mothers and fathers aged about 50 years. They were enthusiastic about attending from the beginning to follow the study.

The participants who participate in the activities online are also no less numerous. Thousands of participants followed the study online through the Gus Muwafiq Channel Youtube account. Moderator Jannur Hayya also gave the opportunity and read questions from participants online to the speakers.

The chairman of the committee Nurul Fatchiati admitted to being very happy with the success of the event. “We are very happy with this activity. Such research activities are important to carry out, so that the figure of Mbah Hashim Ash'ari inspires more people, especially the younger generation, to perform Islamic proclamations and fight for humanity,” Nurul Fatchiat said.
