Ramadhan in Wellington Aoteroa New Zealand - First Week

Ramadhan Kareem..

Bulan penuh berkah yang selalu kita nantikan bersama telah tiba.

Alhamdulillah ini Ramadhan kedua kali untuk kami #TheFrakarsas di Aotearoa New Zealand. Senang sekali rasanya! Tidak terasa sudah hampir dua tahun kami merasakan tinggal di negeri unik di kawasan Pasifik ini dan meskipun banyak suka dukanya, termasuk pindah rumah yang kedua kalinya di Wellington, tapi kami sangat mensyukuri karunia dan berkah-Nya hingga saat ini.

As we have experienced before, we are doing Ramadhan and fasting in the country where majority of the population is non-Moslem. So as always, we have to be able to manage our expectation and circumstances during this blessed holy month. It's not really a problem for me and my husband as adults but for my kids, who still need to go to school from 8.50 - 3.10 PM everyday, fasting is still a bit challenging. But I do trust that Bo et Obi will be able to handle all these challenges during Ramadhan. They even have many school activities and events such as sports, fun cross country and more. 

Nikmat berpuasa di negara orang tetap kami rasakan berkat keberadaan keluarga besar Umat Muslim Indonesia (UMI) Wellington. UMI Wellington adalah kumpulan para umat muslim Indonesia yang ada di Wellington dan UMI telah berdiri cukup lama,  sejak tahun 2008.

Dari 9 pendiri asli UMI, saat ini jemaah anggota UMI sudah mencapai kurang lebih 1000 orang. Sebagian besar ada di Wellington, namun banyak juga yang pindah ke kota lain di Selandia Baru ataupun kembali ke Indonesia karena masa tugas atau belajarnya sudah selesai.



Berbagai kebiasaan unik yang kita jalani di tanah air sebagian bisa kita rasakan saat kumpul bersama keluarga besar UMI Wellington. Salah satunya adalah seperti kegiatan Tarling atau Taraweh keliling yang diruanrumahi berbagai komunitas muslim Indonesia di Wellington secara bergiliran.

Minggu pertama Ramadhan 1444H, keluarga besar Hutt City menjadi tuan rumah Tarling pertama di bulan Ramadhan 1444H dilakukan di Naenae College, Lower Hutt. Alhamdulillah .. acara berjalan lancar dan senang banget ikutan Tarling karena yang hadir di acara berbuka puasa sampai pelaksanaan sholat taraweh ramai, menambah keceriaan Ramadhan.

Tarling kali ini diawali dengan ceramah dari Ustadz Ali Al-Bahar yang dilakukan secara daring mengenai keutamaan Ramadhan. Ceramah yang menyejukkan dan menyegarkang kembali ingatan kita akan indahnya bulan suci ini.

Selesai ceramah, kita menunggu sebentar hingga azan berbuka. Bahagianya saat mendengar azan walaupun hanya di ruangan yang kita sewa dan kami pun segera berbuka puasa. Tak lama kemuadian, kami melakukan shalat maghrib berjamaah, yang dilanjutkan dengan makan malam. Kali ini, makan malam yang disediakan antara lain terdiri dari nasi putih, daging sapi lada hitam, sup brenebon, dan ayam bakar bumbu kecap, lengkap dengan lalapan dan sambal serta kerupuk. Untuk takjil, ada bubur kacang hiaju, kue pukis, bakwan, risol, mini donat dan juga kurma. Alhamdulillaaaah, nikmat tak terkira. 

ayam bakar, anyone?

Usai makan malam, kami pun melanjutkan ibadah sholat taraweh hingga selesai. Sesudahnya, kami membantu panitia membereskan tempat pertemuan yang kita sewa dan kembali pulang untuk istirahat dan bersiap untuk sahur di hari berikutnya.


 Selama acara, tidak lupa kami mengabadikan banyak foto bersama teman - teman yang hadir dalam Tarling kali ini. Rasanya seperti mini reuni, walaupun kami kerap bertemu di pengajian, baik yang berlangsung luring maupun daring.

cheers from all the ladies yang menjadi panitia Tarling kali ini


Oh ya teman - teman... saat ini UMI Wellington sedang berikhtiar mendirikan masjid untuk mendirikan masjid Indonesia pertama di Wellington, Selandia Baru. Ikhtiar besar ini dilakukan dengan semangat tinggi dan niat baik untuk mendapat ridha  dan berkah-Nya. Memang tidak mudah dan memnbutuhkan biaya yang sangat besar namun in sya Allah UMI Wellington, bahu - membahu dengan umat muslim lainnya di seluruh dunia, berusaha menwujudkan mimpi indah ini. Saya sendiri mendapat kepercayaan untuk bergabung dengan pengurus UMI tahun 2023 dan juga bagian dari panitia pembangunan masjid UMI Wellington. Bismillahirrahmanirrahim semoga segalanya berjalan lancar ya.

Wonderful Wednesday with My Purple World, Oh My Heartsie Girls and Friends



Again, Ramadhan Kareem to my Moslem sisters and brothers who observe and celebrate this solemn month. As always, Ramadhan is indeed a special time for us to once again redeem ourselves and never get tired to improve ourselves in so many ways. 

This will be our first Ramadhan in the land of Kiwis. After spending 3 Ramadhan in Jakarta and many more in New York Cities as well as other parts of the world, it's time to sit down here in this beautiful Aotearoa or the Land of the Long Clouds. Here, the red traffic light system is still on. Although many have open the doors,- like cafes, restaurants, stadium, and many public events will soon be resumed. That icludes the mosques as well. Nevertheless, as we try to stay cautious, we are conducting our taraweh prayer at home. We haven't tried to joined the one in the local mosques in Kilbirnie or Newton. Hopefully soon we will join one of them, most likely in weekends or when the kids are not having their classes in the morning.


Btw, many of my friends will enjoy and celebrate Easter as well this week. Here in this linky party, you will definitely find so many wonderful recipes, decoration ideas and many more. So, welcome to Wonderful Wednesday with My Purple World, Oh My Heartsie Girls and Friends.

Welcoming Ramadhan in Wellington, New Zealand



Alhamdulillah..

Ramadhan is soon coming.

This holy month blessed with so many beautiful pahala and deeds, given to those who dedicate their niat or willingness, as well as their deeds and action only for Allah SWT the Almighty. Ramadhan is not only about refraining from eating, drinking and conducting intimate intercourse. Or stop gossiping and It is also the perfect time for us to reflect upon everything we have done and redeem ourselves, trying to be a way better person. Ramadhan will be the high time for us to restrain from unnecessary and consuming greed, to share more to others and to get closer to our Creator.




This year, we have our Ramadhan in Wellington, New Zealand.

Our first time ever.

Selalu ada saat pertama untuk banyak hal dan kali ini, kami puasa untuk edisi perdana di Wellington, Selandia Baru. Well, tentu saja hal ini menambah keistimewaan bulan penuh berkah yang selalu kita tunggu. Selandia Baru menjadi negara ke-lima untuk saya yang menjadi 'rumah' dan tempat menjalankan ibadah puasa. Selain Indonesia, alhamdulillah saya diberi kesempatan untuk menikmati Ramadhan di Melbourne, Australia; Brussels, Belgia; Geneva, Swiss; New York City, AS; dan Wellington, Selandia Baru. Along with me, Udi my hubby menggenapi pengalaman saya di 4 negara, sementara untuk anak - anak, ini kali ketiga mereka berganti tempat tinggal.  Tentu saja, tempat yang paling menyenangkan untuk menjalankan ibadah ini tak lain dan tak bukan adalah di tanah air tercinta.

Bukan bermaksud untuk sombong tapi kami benar - benar mencatat dan menikmati kesempatan yang diberikan Allah SWT kepada kami sekeluarga. Tentu saja banyak suka duka yang dialami saat menjalani ibadah di bulan suci Ramadhan jauh dari keluarga besar dan tanah air kesayangan. Ada banyak kerinduan yang terasa di dada. Nanti aku cerita lebih lanjut deh mengenai keseruannya ya, terutama dari the land of the Kiwis.

Now, let's see how Ramadhan is here in Wellington, New Zealand. Since we started it at the end of summer and the beginning of fall or autumn, the length of time for our fasting is pretty much similar to that of Indonesia. We start the fasting from 5.15 AM and end it t 6.15 PM. So more or less it's 13 hours. Really manageable. Especially since the weather here is also friendly now. Well, it's still cold but that's way better than if it is too hot. we are so privilege as we have got the experience of doing the fasting month in summer. Long hours, hot weather, regular work schedule and school were really huge challenges for us while fasting in Geneva and in New York. 

We follow the announcement from FIANZ or the Federation of Islamic Association of New Zealand. FIANZ has a special working group dealing with the sighting of new moon to confirm the start of Ramadhan. Based on FIANZ memo, Ramadhan starts on April 4th, 2022 in New Zealand. So, that's Monday for us.

So far, we don't really have preparation in particular besides making sure that we have our resolute commitment to be a much better, more righteous follower. 



Untuk puasa kali ini, kami tidak memiliki persiapan khusus kecuali meluruskan niat dan meneguhkan hati untuk bisa terus memperbaiki diri dan menjadi hamba-Nya yang lebih taat. Jujur saja, saya pribadi merasa ada begitu banyak kekurangan diri yang rasanya membuat saya malu untuk bersimpuh pada-Nya dan banyak meminta. Saya harus mengakui bahwa berbagai tanggung jawab di dunia kerap membuat saya alpa akan prioritas pada akhirat. Sementara anak - anak yang beranjak dewasa juga menyadarkan saya dan suami betapa cepat waktu berlalu dan masih banyak PR yang harus kami kerjakan sebagai orang tua sesuai ajaran-Nya dan teladan dari junjungan kita Nabi Muhammad SAW. Semoga semua niat baik, puasa, ibadah, doa, permohonan ampun dan sujud kita pada-Nya bisa menjadi peluruh dosa - dosa kita dan membuka pintu surga untuk kita kelak. 

Marhaban yaa Ramadhan.

Kami sekeluarga mengucapkan selamat menjalankan ibadah puasa dan mohon maaf lahir dan batin ya teman -teman. 

Have a solemn Ramadhan.


Marhaban yaa Ramadhan - Welcoming Ramadhan 1422H


Marhaban yaa Ramadhan 

Welcoming Ramadhan 1422H, the holy month for us all, moslem sisters and brothers. May Allah SWT, the Almighty God, give us all the strength, perseverance, and reinforced faith to follow His path.

Selamat menjalankan ibadah puasa di bulan suci Ramadhan 1422H kepada seluruh keluarga, teman, dn rekan - rekan yang menjalankannya. 

Tidak terasa Ramadhan kali ini menjadi bulan suci yang kedua di mana kita semua masih berjuang melawan penyebaran virus Corona atau Covid-19. Masih banyak penyesuaian yang harus kita lakukan meskipun banyak di antara kita yang telah mendapatkan vaksin. Karenanya kita semua harus tetap taat dengan 5 M dan menjaga kesehatan selama bulan puasa ini. 

Hanya pada-Mu ya Rabb...

Mungkin ini yang kerap menjadi halangan or tantangan yang lumayan berat  karena kita sangat terbiasa untuk berkumpul, menghabiskan waktu bersama keluarga dan orang - orang tercinta di saat istimewa ini. Mulai dari buka puasa bersama - sama, ngabuburit, tarawih di masjid yang selalu ramai di saat Ramadhan, dan mudik, pulang ke rumah. Pulang ke tempat orang tua, yang tanpa terasa selalu kita rindukan. Pulang untuk sekedar memeluk mereka yang selama ini membuat hati kita hangat. Pulang untuk meminta maaf atas segala khilaf, yang kerap tidak terucap namun khidmat terasa saat mencium tangan orang tua tercinta. 


May Allah SWT give us mercy..

Aaaah, Ramadhan memang selalu membuatku sendu. Inilah indahnya bulan suci ini, karena hati dan jiwa menjadi tenang dan sejuk. Diri menjadi lebih teduh dalam menjalani hari. Karena cinta-Nya terasa teresonansi di dalam jiwa. 

Kita kerap alpa untuk bersyukur dan hanya mampu mengucap kerinduan dan dahaga kita akan cinta-Nya. Tanpa benar - benar melakukan apa yang harus kita lakukan untuk meraih ridho-Nya. Semoga kali ini kita bisa benar - benar jujur pada diri sendiri dan benar - benar berusaha mendapat berkah-Nya yang tak berbatas di bulan penuh rahmat. 

Semoga Allah SWT selalu melimpahkan yang terbaik untuk kita semua. Aaamiiin Ya Rabbal Alamiin.





Wonderful Wednesday with My Purple World, Oh My Heartsie Girls and Friends

Marhaban yaa Ramadhaaan

Hi, everyone.

Wishing you all safe, happy and healthy days ahead. Alhamadulillah,  the holy month of Ramadhan is here. For all my Moslem sisters and brothers, my family wherever you are, wishing you all a wonderful and solemn Ramadhan. May Allah SWT, the Almighty, bestow us with His endless blessings and guidance over the challenging days ahead. 

As you know, Ramadhan is the ninth month in Islamic calendar and Moslems all over the world celebrate the arrival of this super special month. Ramadhan is also the month when Moslems fast from sunrise to sunset, implement self restraint and avoid from eating, drinking, conducting sexual intercourse, and doing bad/sinful things as well as avoiding negative thoughts. 



This is the month where those who faithfully follow the Holy Quran and the teachings of Prophet Muhammad SAW (PBUH) receive multiple rewards for all the good deeds conducted and forgiveness of all the sins. This is also the month when the special gate in paradise, named Ar-Rayyan, dedicated to those who fast.  The Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) also once mentioned, as quoted,  “For those who fast, there is a gate in Paradise called Ar-Rayyan, through which no one but they will enter. When the last of them has entered it, it will be closed. Whoever enters through it will drink, and whoever drinks will never thirst again”. This haddist is narrated by Sahi Bin Sad, Sunan an-Nasa’i. Not to mention Laitul Qadar, a very powerful and special night which comes mysteriously in one of the nights in the last ten nights, the last one third, of Ramadhan. This one night is better than a thousand nights, as said in the Holy Quran Surah Al-Qadr 97 : 3.  Those are some of the benefits we can have during Ramadhan and I will be more than happy to share more along the way.



the holy Quran

Nevertheless, during this pandemic, things haven't been back to normal and we all still need to do so many adjustments. That includes our fasting month and the celebration of Eid Al-Fitr. This will be the second year where we are strongly requested to restrain ourselves from doing "mudik" or our tradition of going back home to celebrate Eid Al-Fitr, the victory day. Well, although many of us have received the vaccines but that doesn't guarantee that we are immune from the virus. 

We hope you will enjoy your visit and find something that arouses your interest and don't forget our hostesses blogs that they share as well.
