Hari ini, bertepatan dengan tanggal 1 di bulan April, dimana tanggal yang dikatakan banyak orang dengan sebutan â??April Mopâ?.
April Mop sendiri merupakan hari dimana orang-orang diperbolehkan menipu dan berbohong kepada orang lain. Rupanya, ada suatu kebiasaan kaum jahiliah yang patut kita waspadai bersama sebagai seorang muslim. Namun, tahukah Anda apa arti dari â??April Mopâ? yang sebenarnya?
Sebenarnya, April Mop yang jatuh setiap tanggal 1 April adalah sebuah perayaan hari kemenangan atas dibunuhnya ribuan umat Islam Spanyol oleh tentara salib yang dilakukan melalui cara-cara penipuan.
Itulah sebabnya, mereka merayakan April Mop dengan cara melegalkan penipuan dan kebohongan walau dibungkus dengan dalih sekedar hiburan atau keisengan belaka.
Tak sedikit orang yang menganggap bahwa April Mop yang jatuh pada tanggal 1 April adalah hari dimana kita diperbolehkan dan sah-sah saja menipu teman, orangtua, saudara, dan lain sebagainya, dengan catatan sang target tidak boleh marah ketika sadar bahwa dirinya telah menjadi sasaran April Mop.
PENJELASAN : “April’s fool was never a Christian festival whether in Spain or anywhere else. I dare say, no Muslim has ever found any other person celebrating “THIS event”. We have to ask: Who exactly is celebrating “THIS bloody and shameful episode”? Obviously one cannot celebrate what one doesn’t know. Reasons for feasts might possibly change over time, but each feast is celebrated by the participants for (their own) reasons that they are aware of and it can hardly be a celebration of something they are unaware of.” http://answering-islam.org/Hoaxes/aprilfool.html
“The Absolute Verdict: The above discussion makes it clear that the April Fool’s Day is not a tradition made to spite the Muslims. Reacting to these rumours over the internet, Abdul-Halim V, has rightly remarked on Planet Granada blog:”…sometimes I get the feeling that as a group, Muslims need to develop a lot more critical-thinking and need to learn not to pass on everything we hear from so-and-so as the truth”.” http://www.hasaan.com/…/april-fools-day-removing-muslim…
dan asalnya sendiri masih blm jelas.
“How the custom of pranking on April 1 came about remains shrouded in mystery. When the western world employed the Julian calendar, years began on March 25. Festivals marking the start of the New Year were celebrated on the first day of April becauseMarch 25 fell during Holy Week. The adoption of the Gregorian calendar during the 1500s moved the New Year to January 1. According to the most widely-believed origin postulated for April Fools’ Day, those who could be tricked into believing April 1 was still the proper day to celebrate the New Year earned the sobriquet of April fools. To this end, French peasants would unexpectedly drop in on neighbors on that day in a effort to confuse them into thinking they were receiving a New Year’s call. Out of that one jape supposedly grew the tradition of testing the patience of family and friends. But that’s only one theory. Others are:
• The timing of this day of pranks seems to be related to the arrival of spring, when nature “fools” mankind with fickle weather, according to the Encyclopedia of Religion and the Encyclopedia Britannica.
• The Country Diary of Garden Lore, which chronicles the goings-on in an English garden, says that April Fools’ Day “is thought to commemorate the fruitless mission of the rook (the European crow), who was sent out in search of land from Noah’s flood-encircled ark.”
• Others theorize it may have something to do with the Vernal Equinox.
• Some think to tie in with the Romans’ end-of-winter celebration, Hilaria, and the end of the Celtic new year festival.” http://www.snopes.com/holidays/aprilfools/origins.asp
