Mengenang Proklamator

Kisah Bung Hatta Naik Haji, Kerendahan Hati Yang Menyentuh

Bung Hatta

Soal kejujuran Muhammad Hatta memang jagonya. Jika ada wakil presiden sekaligus perdana menteri yang hidup pas-pasan, cuma Bung Hatta orangnya.

Bapak proklamator Indonesia ini memiliki kisah yang bisa dijadikan teladan bagi siapa saja tentang kesederhanaan hidup, khususnya bagi para pejabat negara Indonesia.

Tahun 1952, sebagai muslim yang taat, Hatta berniat menggenapkan rukun Islam, menunaikan ibadah haji. Sebagai wakil presiden saat itu—orang nomor dua paling berkuasa di seluruh negeri—ia tentu layak menggunakan fasilitas negara.

Itulah pemikiran Presiden Soekarno saat ia menyediakan pesawat khusus dan semua fasilitas kenegaraan yang diperlukan Bung Hatta melaksanakan rukun Islam yang ke lima itu. Soekarno berpikir Hatta akan pergi secara terhormat sebagai wakil presiden untuk menunaikan ibadah haji.

Akan tetapi perkiraan Soekarno meleset. Bung Hatta menolak tawaran itu, sebab ia berpendapat urusan naik haji bukanlah urusan seorang pejabat negara melainkan urusan manusia biasa yang ingin pergi ke tanah suci.

Bung Hatta ingin pergi haji sebagai rakyat biasa, bukan sebagai wakil presiden. Ia bahkan telah mengumpulkan hasil honorarium penerbitan beberapa bukunya untuk menunaikan rukun Islam kelima tersebut.

Ribuan Rakyat Lintas Agama Hantar Bung Hatta

Meski Hatta dengan rendah hati menolak pembiayaan perjalann hajinya, pemerintah tidak kehabisan akal. Hatta diminta untuk sekaligus melakukan kunjungan persahabatan ke Arab Saudi mewakili Indonesia.

Maka saat berangkat tanggal 20 Agustus 1952 dari Bandar Udara Kemayoran, pria kelahiran Benteng Fort de Kock, Bukittinggi itu tetap dilepas sebagai wakil presiden yang akan melakukan tugas negara. Para menteri, pejabat sipil dan militer hadir memberikan penghormatan.

Kantor Berita Antara saat itu melaporkan, Panitia Penghormatan Perdjalanan Hadji Wakil Presiden dipimpin oleh Kasman Singodimedjo dan Kiai Haji Wahid Hasjim.

Mereka menggelar syukuran sejak malam dengan berdoa dan menggelar aneka pertunjukan bernuansa Islami di Kemayoran. Acara ini dihadiri tak hanya oleh Umat Islam, tapi juga Umat Agama lain.

Ribuan rakyat rela datang dan menginap di bandara untuk menghantarkan Bung Hatta naik haji. Mereka ramai-ramai mendoakan agar sang Wapres dimudahkan dalam perjalanan dan menjadi Haji Mabrur.

Hatta Yang Tak Gila Harta

Bung Hatta selalu hidup jujur dan sederhana sepanjang hidupnya. Ia bahkan menolak dengan tegas untuk duduk sebagai komisaris di berbagai perusahaan.

Meskipun akibatnya, setelah tidak lagi menjabat, bapak proklamator ini harus menjalani masa pensiun yang cukup miris. Diketahui beliau bahkan sampai kesulitan membayar tagihan listrik dan air di rumahnya.

Oleh karena itu, Ali Sadikin, gubernur legendaris DKI Jakarta yang terkenal keras pun terharu melihat kesederhanaan Bung Hatta. Ketika Bang Ali mengetahui uang pensiun Hatta tak cukup untuk hidup layak, ia melobi DPRD dan meminta agar Bung Hatta dijadikan Warga Istimewa Jakarta sehingga tak perlu lagi membayar tagihan PBB, listrik dan air.

Bung Hatta dan Bally

Tokoh berdarah minang ini sesungguhnya memiliki beberapa cerita lain yang menggambarkan kesederhanaan dan integritas yang kuat sebagai pejabat negara. Teladan-teladan yang membikin haru bagi yang mengikutinya yang juga ia terapkan pada keluarganya.

Seperti misal kisah hatta dan istrinya, Ibu Rahmi. Sebagai istri seorang wakil presiden mendapatkan sebuahmesin jahit tentu bukan hal yang sulit. Namun Hatta dan istri tak pernah memanfaatkan keadaan dan memilih untuk menabung sedikit demi sedikit.

Bahkan, yang mengundang senyum sekaligus salut, pada saat itu yang bertepatan dengan keadaan ekonomi Indonesia, Hatta tak memberitahu istrinya bahwa pemerintah Indonesia melakukan kebijakan ekonomi senering, atau pemotongan nilai uang rupiah untuk menyelamatkan perekonomian negara.

Walhasil uang tabungan untuk mesin jahit pun berkurang, hal yang sempat membuat kesal Ibu Rahmi pada suaminya karena tak memberitahu. Namun lagi-lagi Bung Hatta menunjukkan kenegarawananya, ia berkata sekalipun pada istri, segala rahasia negara harus tetap dijaga.

Sementara untuk keinginan pribadinya yang tidak terlalu istimewa, lelaki berkacamata ini juga tercatat sejarah tak tuntas memenuhinya. Semasa hidupnya, pria kelahiran 12 Agustus 1902 ini sangat mengidamkan memiliki sepatu bermerk Bally. Namun hingga akhir hayatnya sepatu yang cukup populer di era 50-an itu tak pernah terbeli

Bung Hatta wafat pada 14 Maret 1980. Ia dimakamkan di tempat pemakaman umum Tanah Kusir, Jakarta. Pemerintah baru menganugerahinya gelar Pahlawan Proklamator 6 tahun kemudian.
