Islamic Education Pondok Modern Darussalam Gontor
Islam acts as a religion that carries the mission of mercy for all nature requires the means to apply it effectively and efficiently, one of which is education. Thus the education applied must depart from the framework and teachings of Islam, namely the Qur'an and sunnah of the apostle. Because the Qur'an as a source of Islamic law that contains guidance that corresponds to the fitrah of man in his life, this is in accordance with the word of the Prophet Rasulullah SAW which means: "I leave for you two things, do not get lost as long as you hold on to them, namely the Qur'an and the Sunnah of the apostle". In the Qur'an Allah says:
"Verily, the Qur'an has guided them to a better path, and gives glad tidings to the believers who do righteous deeds that for them is a great reward." Q.S. Al-Isra’ 17:9. source here
K.H. Achmad Sahal, K.H. Imam Zarkasyi and K.H. Zainuddin Fananie, these figures are a reformer of Islamic Education Pondok Modern Darussalam Gontor in these today, a form of that has been applied to the education and teaching system at the Pondok Modern Darussalam Gontor. In this case, often among them put forward the word of Allah which means:
"So when you have finished [your duties], then stand up [for worship]." Q.S. An-Nasyrah, 94:7. source here
Such awareness is in him who then patiently translates in daily educational activities. With the establishment of a modern pondok pesantren, later known as Pondok Modern Darussalam Gontor.
This educational institution, very well known for its factors, the first factor worth mentioning is the fact that Pondok Modern Gontor has passed a generational period that allows it to be institutionalized reality. Re-established in 1926, precisely at the commemoration of the prophet Muhammad SAW on 12 Rabiul Awal 1345 (20 September 1926) the purpose of the watershed of the presence of Pondok Modern Gontor is an adequate journey to position itself as a capable educational institution.
Anyone who understands the nature of Pondok pesantren's mind understands that the notoriety and dignity of the modern Pondok Gontor as a capable Islamic educational institution does not escape the cold hand touch of its caregivers, this is important to put forward, because in reality the success and failure of a pondok pesantren is determined by the level of firmness and sincerity of its caregivers (Kyai) in developing the institution that he leads, therefore, it is actually not excessive if there are many observers judging that the pondok pesantren is a personal enterprise of the caregivers.
This concept of personal enterprise, should not be understood in a conventional sense, is closely related to private ownership. This should be understood in a sociological context. In such a framework, keep in mind that the caregivers who started, developed and maintained the dynamics of education in pesantren. So strict is the relationship between the nanny and the pondok pesantren that she leads, so that few of them understand the life ordered by the trend as "ibadah" in a broad sense.
With such a line of thinking mentioned above, the low dynamics of Pondok Modern Gontor's journey as an educational institution have clearly been established and influenced by the caregivers and their founders. They are K.H. Imam Zarkasyi, K.H. Achmad Sahal, and K.H. Zainuddin Fananie known as Trimurti, a term that describes the unity of ideas, ideals and steps of the struggle of the three founders they three for a long time, acting as a heart-seter of the direction of the journey of Pondok Modern Gontor.
In other areas of activity, not everyone can play the same role. Similarly, with Trimurti Pondok Modern Gontor, Each has a different background, education, competence, and important role for the growth and development of Pondok Gontor, In the view of his students K.H. Achmad Sahal plays the role of caregiver, K.H. Zainuddin Fananie as a very influential intellectual figure in the intellectual journey of the cottage and K.H. Imam Zarkasyi is more acting as an educator.
In such a framework also the concept of Gontor as a "modern" pondok pesantren can also be understood. And judging from the educational background of the founding figures of Pondok Modern Darussalam Gontor. That the three had used islamic education in the style of traditional pesantren as well as modern western education brought by dutch invaders this experience is quite important for the implementation of education in Pondok Modern Darussalam Gontor. Because, realizing the superior side of the pondok pesantren world with its soul and the excellence of a pesantren system that puts students for 24 hours in an environment designed for education, on the one hand; and realize the advantages of the modern western education system with its methodology that is considered efficient and effective, as well as the system in reforming the know-how to the learners, on the outside side, trimurti trying to integrate the two systems into the education system in Pondok Modern Darussalam Gontor that they founded.
Furthermore, the brief explanation above becomes the basis for the author to learn more about the concept of modern Islamic education by Trimurti in terms of his philosophy, which has been applied in Pondok Modern Darussalam Gontor. I'll write in the next article. Thank you and keep reading my other articles on this website :)
