Ilmu Geografi (Metereologi) dan Islam

Oleh Dr Sayid Mujtaba Rukni Musawi Lari

geografiKisah-kisah mengenai para pelayar Arab yang berkunjung ke China, Jepang, dan kepulauan rempah-rempah Indonesia memberikan bukti nyata keunggulan kapal-kapal dagang bangsa Arab dan juga tingginya pengetahuan meteorologi dan geografi mereka.  Yang mengagumkan lagi bahwa pelayaran mereka bisa langsung dari Marokko ke Mindanao (Filipina Selatan).

Tapi, selain menjelajahi laut-laut di Asia Tenggara, para pelayar itu juga masuk jauh ke pantai timur Afrika, dan bahkan hingga ke sungai-sungai yang terhubung dari Laut Hitam hingga bagian-bagian pelosok Rusia.

Jurnal atau laporan pelayaran Sulaiman, seorang kapten laut dari Seraf — yakni suatu pelabuhan di Teluk Persia — telah dikaji oleh Dr David Stonach dari British  Institute  of  Persian  Studies.  Jurnal ini dipublikasikan pada akhir abad ke-9 Masehi yang memuat informasi tentang sejumlah pelayaran Sulaiman ke India dan China.  Jurnal tersebut telah diterjemahkan ke dalam bahasa Latin.

PAKAR geografi Ibn Hauqal (975 Masehi) menulis: “Saya telah menulis garis lintang dan garis  bujur  tempat-tempat  di bumi ini, yang meliputi semua negeri-negeri serta batas-batasnya; dan juga daerah-daerah kekuasaan Islam dengan peta rinci pada setiap bagiannya di mana di situ saya telah beri tanda sejumlah tempat misalnya kota-kota, sungai-sungai, danau-danau, jenis-jenis pertanian, jalan-jalan, jarak-jarak suatu tempat dengan tempat lainnya, komoditas-komoditas dagang dan banyak lagi lainnya yang dapat bermanfaat bagi para penguasa dan aparatnya, juga untuk orang banyak.”

***

ABU Reihan al-Biruni, Ibn Batuta, dan Abu’l Haussan merupakan nama-nama lain yang dikenal dalam sejarah ilmu geografi. Mereka ini telah melakukan perjalanan ke berbagai penjuru dunia seraya mengadakan observasi cermat serta membuat catatan-catatan rinci dan teliti yang oleh banyak pihak dianggap sebagai prestasi mengagumkan di bidang ilmu pengetahuan.
