									           JAKA TARUB AND NAWANG WULAN
Jaka Tarub was a handsome and diligent young man. He lived in a village near a
lake. One day, when Jaka Tarub passed the lake, he heard some giggles and laughs
of some girls who were bathing in the lake. He was curious, so he peeped through
the bushes. There were seven beautiful girls in the lake. They’re fairies from the
heavenly kingdom of kahyangan. Jaka Tarub saw a scarf near the bushes. It
belonged to one of the fairies. Jaka Tarub then took it and hid it.

Crack!!! Accidentally, Jaka Tarub stepped on a twig. “There’s someone!” said one
of the fairies. “Let’s get back. Hurry!” she said. They pulled over and wear their
scarf. “Where is my scarf?” one of the fairies couldn’t find her scarf. She was the
youngest fairy called Nawang Wulan. They tried to search for it, but it was no
where to be found. “We’re sorry, Wulan. We have to go back to kahyangan,” said
the eldest fairy. “You’ll have to find it by yourself. We’ll wait for you in
kahyangan,” she said in empathy. The other fairies then flew to the sky leaving
Nawang Wulan behind. Nawang Wulan saw them leaving in tears. She was so sad.

“Excuse me …,” said Jaka Tarub, startling Nawang Wulan. “Are you okay?” he
asked. Nawang Wulan moved backward, “Who are you?” she asked. “My name is
Jaka Tarub. I was passing by and I heard you crying, so I came to see what
happen,” Jaka Tarub lied. Nawang Wulan then told him about her problem. “I
can’t fly without my scarf,” she said. Jaka Tarub then asked Nawang Wulan to
come home with him. At first, Nawang Wulan refused the offer. But since she
didn’t have anywhere else to go, Nawang Wulan then decided to follow Jaka

Nawang Wulan stayed with Jaka Tarub in the village. A month passed, and they
decided to get married. Nawang Wulan was willing to marry a human because she
fell in love with Jaka Tarub. After a year, they had a beautiful daughter. They
named her Kumalasari. They lived happily.

Jaka Tarub was also happy to live with Nawang Wulan and Kumalasari. Especially
because he always got a lot of harvest since he married Nawang Wulan. He
couldn’t even keep all of his harvest in the barn because it was always full. “It’s so
weird. Nawang Wulan cooked everyday, but why is my barn always full,” Jaka
Tarub mumbled to himself. He was so curious. One day, Jaka Tarub stayed at
home. “I want to stay home today. I’d like to play with Kumalasari,” he said to his
wife. “Well, I’ll go to the river to wash the clothes. Please keep an eye on
Kumalasari,” asked Nawang Wulan. “I’m cooking rice now. Please do not open the
pan cover before it’s done,” she said just before she left. “Could this be the
secret?” Jaka Tarub thought. After Nawang Wulan left, he curiously opened the
pan cover. He found only one single paddy. “How come?” he wondered.

Before lunch, Nawang Wulan came home. She headed to the kitchen to see the rice
she had cooked. She found that the rice turned into only a few grains. “Did you
open the pan cover?” she asked her husband. “I… I’m sorry. I was curious,” Jaka
Tarub said as he realized his fault.

Ever since, Nawang Wulan had lost her power. She couldn’t cook rice with only a
single paddy. Their paddy supply was slowly lessened. Their barn was almost
empty. One day, Nawang Wulan went to the barn to get some paddy. When she
took one of them, she found a scarf. “What’s this? This is my scarf,” said Nawang
Wulan startled.

That night, Nawang Wulan asked her husband about the scarf. Jaka Tarub’s eyes
widened, “You found it?” he asked. Jaka Tarub looked down and asked for her
forgiveness. “Because I’ve found my scarf, it’s time for me to go back to where I
belong,” Nawang Wulan said. Jaka Tarub tried to stop her, but Nawang Wulan had
made up her mind. “Please take good care of Kumalasari,” she said. “If she wanted
to see me, take seven grains of candlenut and put it into a basket. Shake it as you
play the bamboo flute. I’ll come to see her,” she explained.

Jaka Tarub promised to take good care of their daughter. He once again asked for
forgiveness for all of his mistakes. “I’ve forgiven you, so you don’t have to feel
guilty. I must go now. Take care,” said Nawang Wulan as she flew to the bright
full moon.***
                 SUNAN KALIJAGA Vs KEJAWEN
Sunan Kalijaga cleric whose name is most widely called the Java community. He is a real legend
 of the growth and development of Islam in Java. Unfortunately, his name is often associated
  with Javanese mysticism Javanese alias. Justify 'Kejawenisme' is the fruit of thought Sunan
Kalijaga? Who Sunan Kalijaga? From which the name 'Kalijaga' come from? Lets have a proper
                                  perspective on this figure.

 There are various versions of the original name Kalijaga. Several sources said that the original
 name Sunan Kalijaga is 'Lokajaya'. There are other sources mention that the original name of
  'Prince Abdurrahman' or some are saying that his name is 'Raden Joko Said' or 'Prince Jake
martyr'. The last opinion is the most mashyur history. Said the name of Raden Joko is a known
              name for generations by the residents of Tuban up to the present.

  Said Ricardo was born around 1450 AD His father was Wilatikta Arya, Duke of Tuban. Arya
 Wilatikta are descendants of the legendary rebel Majapahit, Ronggolawe. Illustrious history
Wilatikta Arya said that the Duke had embraced Islam since before the birth of Johnny Said. But
      as a Muslim, he was known for ruthless and very dogmatic to the Majapahit central
               government adheres to Hinduism. He set a high tax to the people.

  Said Ricardo young who do not agree on any policy of his father as Duke often defiant in his
 father's policies. Said his father Joko insubordination culminated when he dismantle the barn
    duchy and handed out rice from the barn to the people of Tuban who was in a state of
                                      starvation due to drought.

Because of his actions, his father then 'hold court' to try Ricardo Said and ask the reason for his
   actions. The opportunity was not wasted by Joko Said to tell his father that, for reasons of
religion, he was strongly opposed to his policy of piling up food in a barn while his people live in
    poverty and hunger. His father can not accept this reason because they think Joko Said to
  mengguruinya in religious matters. Because of that, his father and then throw him out of the
duchy court saying that he'd be back if it is able to vibrate the whole Tuban by reading verses of
 the Qur'an. The purpose of the 'thrill the whole Tuban' here is where it already has many well-
               known science of religion and society because of their knowledge.

 Illustrious history and then told that after being driven from the duchy court, Joko Said robber
turned into a well-known and feared in the region of East Java. As a Marauder, Joko Said always
     'choose' their victims carefully. He just rob the rich who do not want to spend zakat and
 sadaqah. From the results rampokannya it, most of it is always he was distributing to the poor.
This story is probably similar to the story of Robin Hood in England. But that's about his famous
history. This is expected as a robber, he was given the title 'Lokajaya' means roughly 'Marauder

   Everything changed when Lokajaya aka Johnny Said met a famous scholar, Sheikh Maulana
  Ibrahim alias Makhdum Sunan Bonang. Sunan Bonang was later mernyadarkannya that good
 works can not start with the bad-haq something that can not be confused with something that
Johnny Said vanity-alias Lokajaya repent and cease to be robbers. Said Ricardo later studied the
     Sunan Bonang until it finally became known as the cleric with the title 'Sunan Kalijaga'.

                             From which the name 'Kalijaga' appear?
This question is still a mystery and material disagreement between the experts of history until
today. Cirebon community believes that the name comes from the hamlet Kalijaga in Cirebon.
   Sunan Kalijaga had ever lived in Cirebon and close friends with Sunan Gunung Jati. This is
connected with the habits wong Cerbon to menggelari someone with the region of origin, such
  as Sunan Gunung Jati degree to Sheikh Sharif Hidayatullah, because he lived at the foot of
                                          Gunung Jati.

 The evidence suggests that there was no 'time' around the village Kalijaga as typical village. In
  fact, the places in Java are generally named with something that characterizes the place. For
     example, a name that caused many rebon Cirebon (shrimp), or the name of Pekalongan
because of the large fruit bats (bats). Logically, the name 'Hamlet Kalijaga' it would appear after
   the Sunan Kalijaga own lives in the village. Therefore, the Society claims it is less acceptable

 Another comes from the history of Javanese mysticism (Javanese). They associate this name
  with joy trustee is bathing in the river (times) so it looks like someone who is "guard time".
Other Javanese history of this name appears as Ricardo Said once told meditated on the banks
of the Sunan Bonang times over the past ten years. This last opinion is the most popular. This
 opinion even raised in the film 'Sunan Kalijaga' and 'Walisongo' in the 80s. I own a second or
                                   less agree with this opinion.

  In syntax, the grammar of languages in Java (Sundanese and Javanese) and all the dialects, if
    there is a noun phrase is placed in front of a verb, it means that the noun is a subject that
serves as the perpetrator of the verb that follows it. So if there is the phrase 'duty time' or 'time
       Jogo' means there is 'a time to keep things'. This is very strange and unreasonable.

 If it is true that the name is derived from the habits of the Sunan kungkum in time or because
he had to keep a time for ten years non-stop (like in the film), then it should be called is "Sunan
                                   Kali Jogo" or "Keep Sunan Kali".

   Logically then, please think carefully. Could it be a preacher to spend time with kungkum-
  kungkum in the river all day? Of course not. As a preacher who loves Islam and its syi'ar, of
course there are many useful things he can do. Javanese history that he be imprisoned for ten
years non-stop at the edge of time is also a history that does not make sense. How can a pious
cleric imprisoned without constantly praying, fasting, even without food and drink? Therefore,
   in my opinion, it is both a history and a history of vanity can not be justified scientifically.
The most reasonable opinion is that the actual name of 'Kalijaga' comes from the Arabic "Qadli
'and its own original name,' Joko Said ', so the original phrase was' Qadli Joko Said' (That Judge
   Ricardo Said). History records that when the Territory (the Trust) was established in 1478
      Demak, he was assigned as Qadli (judge) in Demak by Wali Demak time, Sunan Giri.

Java community has a strong history in terms of 'irregularities' pronunciation of Arabic words,
for example, the term Sekaten (from' Syahadatain '), Kalimosodo (from' sentence Shahadah '),
Mulud (of Mawlid), Suro (from Shura'), Dulkangidah ( of Dzulqaidah), and many other terms. So
    no wonder that the phrase "Qadli Joko" then compromised into "Kalijogo 'or' Kalijaga '.

  Qadli position is held by Kalijaga aka george Said Demak is evidence that a government that
  runs the Islamic Sharia. This is reinforced by the position as mayor in Sunan Giri Demak. The
   term 'Qadli' and 'Guardian' is a title in the names of the Islamic State. From here sajasudah
       unclear who actually Kalijaga Sunan; he adalahseorang Qadli instead Kejawenisme

        Sunan Kalijaga Da'wah Da'wah is Islam, not Da'wah Kejawen or pantheistic Sufi-

 We return to the Sunan Kalijaga Sunan Qadli alias Joko. History tells us that the life of famous
 Sunan Kalijaga estimated at more than 100 years. This means that he has the final power of
Majapahit in 1478, the Sultanate of Demak, Cirebon Sultanate, the Sultanate of Banten, even to
 the kingdom Display (born 1546) and the beginning of the kingdom of Mataram. If history is
                    correct, then the Sunan Kalijaga life is a life long period.

Manuscripts and old chronicle, the chronicle was just mentioning his name until the time of the
Sultanate of Cirebon course, that is up to when he lived in the hamlet Kalijaga. In the stories of
   the establishment of the Kingdom Display by Jake Tingkir and the Kingdom of Mataram by
Panembahan Senopati, his name no longer mentioned. The logic is that, when he was still alive,
would he be involved in the question of Imamat in Java because of its influence is widespread in
 the Java community. The evidence suggests that the tomb was in Kadilangu, near Demak, not
    on the Display or on the Mataram (Yogyakarta and surrounding areas)-the places where
            Kejawen flourish. In my estimation, he is dead now Demak still standing.

Vanity narrations many strange stories told about the Sunan Kalijaga-story addition to the ten-
 year hermitage on the banks of the river. Some strange stories, among others, that he can fly,
can reduce the pounding feet of rain, lightning lock named Ki Ageng Selo in the mosque Demak
and other stories of when we think nan intellect with common sense could not enter the brain
    humans. Strange stories of that kind can only be believed by a lunatic who likes magic.
  Sunan Kalijaga impressed syncretic teachings and smells as well as Javanese Hindu-Buddhist.
 Though the facts of life are the Sunan Kalijaga Islamic Da'wah and syi'ar beautiful. The proof is
very much at all. Sunan Kalijaga is the designer and the construction of the Great Mosque Great
 Mosque of Demak Cirebon. Pole "chips" (wood fragments), which is one of the main pillars of
the mosque is a relic Sunan Kalijaga creations. How could a Javanese mystic, wants will set up a
                       mosque that was clearly a place of worship of Islam.

Sunan Kalijaga religious thought is not sufi-salafi-pantheistic Javanese-style air-the motto 'Gusti
 Manunggaling subjects'. This is evident from his firm stance that participate in Sunan Giri line
 when there is a dispute in the matter of 'infidelity' Sheikh Siti Jenar with his teaching that man
                            and God are united in the same Essence.

 Arts and culture is the means chosen Sunan Kalijaga in preaching. He was very tolerant of the
    local culture. But he also had a firm stance on the issue creed. During the culture still be
 transitive and not contrary to Islamic teachings, he accepted it. Beber ancient Javanese style
 puppets that portray the human image in detail dirubahnya become a faint shadow puppets
   and not too similar to the image of man, his knowledge that the drawing and the image is
                          something like a human in Islam is prohibited.

 Evolving story relates that he often traveled out of the village just to hold a puppet show with
 his own as the mastermind. All who watch the show held wayangnya not paid, only asked two
sentences say the shahada. He argues that society must be approached gradually. First berislam
  used to further develop the creed aspects of worship and Islamic knowledge. Sunan Kalijaga
               believes that if Islam is understood, by their old habits disappear.

   Play-play that brought the show-Sunan Kalijaga pagelarannya not play-play kind of Hindu
 Mahabharata, Ramayana, and others. Although the figures he used the same (the Pandavas,
  Kauravas, etc..) He composed his own play-lakonnya, such as Layang Kalimasada, the play
  Petruk So the King who all have a strong spirit of Islam. The characters were puppets who
  brought him added to the new characters that have the breath of Islam. For example, the
 characters comprising Punakawan Semar, Bagong, Petruk, and Gareng characters are loaded
                                     with Islamic content.

   A. The term 'mastermind' is derived from the Arabic, 'Dalla' which means to show. In this
    case, a 'mastermind' is someone who 'show the truth to the audience puppet'. Khari
Mandalla'alal Kafa'ilihi (He who shows the path of truth or virtue to others, the reward equal to
                           the perpetrator's own virtue, Sahih Bukhari)
     2. Characters 'Semar' is taken from the Arabic, 'Simaar' which means nail. In this case, a
             Muslim has a solid stance and faith like a nail stuck, Simaaruddunyaa.
 3. Characters 'Petruk' is taken from the Arabic, 'Fat-ruuk' which means 'tingggalkan'. That is, a
        person who leaves all worship to other than Allah, Fatruuk-kuluu siwallaahi man.
     4. Characters 'Gareng' is taken from the Arabic, 'Qariin' which means 'friend'. That is, a
 Muslim is always trying to find as many friends to be invited to the goodness, Nalaa Qaarin.
     5. Characters 'Bagong' is taken from the Arabic, 'Baghaa' which means 'rebel'. That is, a
                      Muslim has always rebelled at the sight of injustice.

 Sculpture, puppets, gamelan, clothes piety, celebration sekatenan, Grebeg Maulud, and the
     mysticism of sound art that creates a mere propaganda tool, not a culture that needs
 ditradisikan to rust in the heart and is rated as mahdhah worship. He looked at it as merely a
method, the method is very effective propaganda of his day. Philosophically, this is the same as
   the proselytizing of the Prophet who rely on the beauty of the verses of the Qur'an as an
  effective method of proselytizing in conquering the hearts of the Arab tribes, who liked to

   It is undeniable that the habit and out of villages and providing free entertainment to the
  people, through a variety of performing arts, also has the same philosophy with the usual
  activities of the Caliph Omar ibn Khattab ra. who love and out of the village to monitor the
       people and provide live entertainment to the people who need them. This equation
     strengthens the evidence that Sunan Kalijaga is the leader of the character, traits, and
         leadership qualities commonly possessed a true Islamic leaders, not a Javanese.
