Deskripsi :
Raden Santri atau Sayyid Ali Murtadlo atau dikenal juga dengan Sunan Gresik adalah salah satu penyebar agama Islam di Jawa dan sekitarnya. Beliau adalah putera Syekh Ibrahim Asmaraqandi. Beliau juga merupakan Kakak dari Raden Rachmat (Sunan Ampel) dan sepupu dari Maulana Malik Ibrahim.

Beliau datang ke Jawa menyertai ayahanda dan saudaranya untuk menyebarkan agama Islam. Sekaligus silahturrahmi ke bibinya, Dewi Condro Wulan / Dwarawati yang menjadi istri Prabu Kertajaya / Brawijaya. Syekh Ali Murtadlo dan Ayahandanya serta beberapa saudaranya tiba di wilayah Majapahit dan mendarat di Pelabuhan Tuban. Namun tidak lama setelah tiba di Tuban ayahandanya meninggal dunia karena sakit dan dimakamkan di daerah pesisir Gesikhardjo, Palang, Tuban. Selama setahun di Majapahit, beliau hendak kembali ke negeri kelahirannya, Campa, tapi negeri tesebut sudah hancur dan dikuasai raja Pelbegu dari kerajaan Koci. Berkat saran raja Kerjajaya, Raden Santri akhirnya menetap di Majapahit dan tinggal di daerah Gresik.

Setelah Syekh Maulana Malik Ibrahim wafat pada tanggal 9 April 1419, beliau menggantikan tugasnya sebagai imam penyebaran Islam di Gresik. Raden Santri wafat pada tahun 1317 saka / 1449 M. Makam beliau termasuk salah satu obyek wisata religi di Kabupaten Gresik yang juga banyak dikunjungi oleh wisatawan. Makam tersebut terletak sekitar 100 m sebelah utara alun-alun kota Gresik, tepatnya di jalan Raden Santri, kelurahan Bedilan, Gresik. Masyarakat Gresik memperingati haul beliau setiap tanggal 15 bulan Muharram. Bertepatan haul kakeknya Sayyid Jumadil Kubro di desa Troloyo Trowulan Mojokerto.

Raden Santri or Sayyid Ali Murtadlo also well known as Sunan Gresik was one of Islam preacher in Java and its surrounding. He was one of Sheikh Ibrahim As-Samarqand (Ibrahim Asmoroqondi) sons. He was also Sunan Ampel’s (Raden Rahmat) older brother and also Sheikh Maulana Malik Ibrahim’s nephew.

Raden Santri came to Java along with his father and brothers to preach Islam. He also came to Java to visit his aunty Dwarawati or Dewi Condro Wulan who was one of King Majapahit, Kertajaya/Brawijaya’s wives. Raden Santri and his family came to Majapahit and arrived at Tuban port.

But, not long after their arriving at Tuban, his father, Sheikh Ibrahim As-Samarqand died because of serious illness. He was buried near the coastal area of Gesikhardjo, parts of Palang Sub-district of Tuban Regency (now). In short after his a year staying in Majapahit, Raden Santri wanted to return to his homeland, Campa, but he head that Campa was already destroyed and powered by King Pelbegu from Koci. Then, King Kertajaya advised him to stay in Majapahit and live in Gresik.

After the death of Sunan Maulana Malik Ibrahim in 9 April 1419, Raden Santri changed his role and position and continued Maulana Malik Ibrahim’s big effort to preach Islam in Gresik. After his 30 years struggle, Raden Santri finally died in 1317 Saka or 1449 M. His tomb now becomes one of religious tourist objects and it is also often being visited by tourists. His tomb is located on the north side of Gresik Town hall, for about 100m, precisely at Raden Santri Street, Bedilan village (part of Gresik Sub-district of Gresik Regency). People of Gresik usually commemorate his haul (date of the death in Javanese Culture) on 15 Muharram (name of month in Islam Calendar) in the same time of his grandfather’s haul, Sayyid Jumadil Kubro at Troloyo village, Trowulan, Mojokerto.
