mahkota-berambut-kesultanan-ternateMahkota Berambut Kesultanan Ternate disimpan di kamar Puji yang disakralkan oleh penghuni keraton. Tidak sembarang orang bisa masuk ke kamar tersebut. Bahkan, Sultan dan sang Permaisuri hanya sesekali salat di kamar tersebut. Biasanya, saat Sultan dan Permaisuri memiliki permohonan khusus baru bisa melaksanakan salat di kamar Puji.

Dalam bangunan megah berwarna kuning ini tersimpan benda-benda bersejarah. Satu di antaranya adalah Mahkota Berambut Kesultanan Ternate. Dipercaya, rambut yang melekat pada bagian atas mahkota tumbuh setiap tahun. Berdasarkan kepercayaan adat Kesultanan Ternate, setiap malam Idul Adha dilakukan upacara potong rambut. Upacara adat dilaksanakan selama tujuh hari.

Selain bernilai sakral, Mahkota Berambut juga biasa digunakan untuk memilih calon Sultan Ternate. Berdasarkan cerita para tetua Ternate, setiap anak lelaki keturunan Sultan Ternate harus mencoba Mahkota Berambut. Mahkota tersebut bisa melekat pas di atas kepala calon Sultan Ternate.

Tidak hanya Mahkota Berambut, di keraton juga tersimpan senjata, baju perang, dan simbol-simbol penjaga kesultanan. Pada kunjungan SP ke keraton, Permaisuri Nita menjelaskan, ada lima binatang penjaga kesultanan. Empat binatang tersebut yakni ular, naga, macan, lipan, dan burung.

Satu dari lima binatang penjaga tersebut dipilih sebagai simbol kesultanan, yakni burung garuda. Lambang burung garuda berkepala dua berarti kerajaan Moloku Kie Raha terbentuk pada 1322. Sementara simbol burung hati terbalik mengandung makna, Sultan Ternate harus selalu mengutamakan kepentingan rakyat daripada kepentingan pribadinya

    Hi there
    My name is Salma and im a decendent of Imam ‘Abdullah ibn Kadi [Qadri] Abdus Salaam, known as Tuan Guru, the son of a qadi,born in 1712, was a Prince from Tidore in the Ternate Islands [of Indonesia]. He traces his geneology to the Sultan of Morocco and his ancestry to that of the holy Prophet Muhammad[salla Allahu’alayhi wa sallam]. He was brought to the Cape on April 06, 1780 as a “state prisoner” along with Callie Abdol Rauf, Badroedin [Badr al-DinJ and Noro Iman [Nur al-Iman]; they were incarcarated on Robben Island. Their registration in the “Bandieten Rollen”for 1780 reveals that they conspired politically with the English in the East against the Dutch.
    While imprisoned on Robben Island, Imam ‘Abdullah [Tuan Guru], being a hafiz al-Qur’an,wrote several copies of the holy Qur’dn from memory. He also authored Ma’rifatul Islamiwa’1 Imani, a work on Islamic jurisprudence, which also deals with `ilm al-kalam [Asharite principles of theology] which he completed in 1781. The manuscripts on Islamic jurisprudence, in the Malayu tongue and in Arabic, became the primary reference work of the Cape Muslims during the 19th century, and is at present in the possession of his descendants in Cape Town.
    I hve managed to tavk my family tree up to tuang guru, but am stuck as i dont know his life before he was banished to the Cape. Some family member also has his family tree going up to the prophet Muhammed pbuh but is not willing to give me a copy which has now left me to contact your museum…..do you have any history about him ie family records and possibly his link to the prophet Muhammed pbuh?? If not,would you know of an institution or people that would be able to help me?Does the museum have drawings of his family and him as he was a prince?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you
