Rencah Kehidupan

Amalan yang terbalik

Marilah kita bermuhasabah atau menilai dan menghitung kembali tentang amalan harian kita. Kadang-kadang kita akan dapati amalan kita adalah terbalik atau bertentangan dari apa yang patut dilakukan dan dituntut oleh Islam. Mungkin kita tidak sedar atau telah dilalaikan atau terikut-ikut dengan budaya hidup orang lain. Perhatikan apa yang dipaparkan dibawah sebagai contoh amalan yang terbalik:-

1. Amalan kenduri arwah beberapa malam yang dilakukan oleh keluarga simati selepas sesuatu kematian (malam pertama, kedua, ketiga, ketujuh dan seterusnya) adalah terbalik dari apa yang dianjurkan oleh Rasulullah di mana Rasulullah telah menganjurkan jiran tetangga memasak makanan untuk keluarga simati untuk meringankan kesusahan dan kesedihan mereka. Keluarga tersebut telah ditimpa kesedihan, terpaksa pula menyedia makanan dan belanja untuk mereka yang datang membaca tahlil. Tidakkah mereka yang hadir makan kenduri tersebut khuatir kalau-kalau mereka termakan harta anak yatim yang ditinggalkan oleh simati atau harta peninggalan simati yang belum dibahagikan kepada yang berhak menurut Islam?

2. Kalau hadir ke kenduri walimatul urus (kenduri kahwin) orang kerap salam berisi (hadiah wang yang diberi semasa bersalam). Kalau tak ada duit nak dikepit dalam tangan, maka segan ia nak pergi makan kenduri. Tetapi kalau ia menziarah orang mati, tidak segan pula salam tak berisi. Sepatutnya kalau menziarah keluarga si matilah kita patut memberi sedekah. Kalau ke kenduri kahwin, tak bagi pun tak apa kerana tuan rumah panggil untuk diberi makan bukan untuk ia menambah pendapatan.

3. Ketika menghadiri majlis pemimpin negara kita berpakaian cantik kemas dan segak tetapi bila mengadap Allah baik di rumah maupun di masjid, pakaian lebih kurang saja bahkan ada yang tak berbaju. Tidakkah ini suatu perbuatan yang terbalik.

4. Kalau menjadi tetamu di rumah orang dan di beri jamuan, kita rasa segan nak makan sampai habis apa yang dihidangkan kerana rasa segan dan malu, sedangkan yang dituntut dibanyakkan makan dan dihabiskan apa yang dihidang supaya tuan rumah rasa gembira dan tidak membazir.

5. Kalau bersolat sunat di masjid amat rajin, tapi kalau di rumah, sangat malas. Sedangkan sebaik-baiknya solat sunat banyak dilakukan di rumah seperti yang dianjurkan oleh Rasulullah untuk mengelakkan rasa riak.

6. Bulan puasa adalah bulan mendidik nafsu termasuk nafsu makan yang berlebihan tetapi kebanyakan orang mengaku bahawa dalam carta perbelanjaan setiap rumah orang Islam akan kita dapati perbelanjaan di bulan puasa adalah yang tertinggi dalam setahun. Sedangkan sepatutnya perbelanjaan di bulan puasa yang terendah. Bukankah terbalik amalan kita?

7. Kalau nak mengerjakan haji, kebanyakan orang akan membuat kenduri sebelum bertolak ke Mekah dan apabila balik dari Mekah tak buat kenduri pun. Anjuran berkenduri dalam Islam antaranya ialah kerana selamat dari bermusafir, maka dibuat kenduri, bukan kerana nak bermusafir, maka dibuat kenduri. Bukankah amalan ini terbalik? Atau kita mempunyai tujuan lain.

8. Semua ibubapa amat bimbang kalau-kalau anak mereka gagal dalam periksa. Maka dihantarlah ke kelas tuisyen walau pun banyak belanjanya. Tapi kalau anak tak boleh baca Quran atau solat, tak bimbang pula bahkan tak mahu hantar tuisyen baca Quran atau kelas khas mempelajari Islam. Kalau guru tuisyen sanggup dibayar sebulan RM20.00 satu pelajaran 8 kali hadir tapi kepada Tok Guru Quran nak bayar RM15.00 sebulan 20 kali hadir belajar pun menggeletar tangan. Bukankah terbalik amalan kita? Kita sepatutnya lebih berbimbang jika anak tidak dapat baca Al Quran atau bersolat dari tidak lulus periksa.

9. Kalau bekerja mengejar rezeki Allah tak kira siang malam, pagi petang, mesti pergi kerja. Hujan atau ribut tetap diharungi kerana hendak mematuhi peraturan kerja. Tapi ke rumah Allah (masjid) tak hujan, tak panas, tak ribut pun tetap tak datang ke masjid. Sungguh tak malu manusia begini, rezeki Allah diminta tapi nak ke rumahNya segan dan malas.

10. Seorang isteri kalau nak keluar rumah samada dengan suami atau tidak, bukan main lagi berhias. Tetapi kalau duduk di rumah, masyaAllah. Sedangkan yang dituntut seorang isteri itu berhias untuk suaminya, bukan berhias untuk orang lain. Perbuatan amalan yang terbalik ini membuatkan rumahtangga kurang bahagia.

Cukup dengan contoh-contoh di atas. Marilah kita berlapang dada menerima hakikat sebenarnya. Marilah kita beralih kepada kebenaran agar hidup kita menurut landasan dan ajaran Islam yang sebenar bukan yang digubah mengikut selera kita. Allah yang mencipta kita maka biarlah Allah yang menentukan peraturan hidup kita.

Sabda Rasullullah SAW: “Sampaikanlah dariku walaupun satu ayat.” (Riwayat Bukhari)

Bila Waktu telah Berakhir

Bila Waktu Telah Berakhir

Bagaimana kau merasa bangga

Untuk Tindakan Segera…

Setelah memikirkan berkali-kali baris-baris ayat di bawah, saya tidak boleh menunggu lagi kecuali mesti dengan segera menghebahkannya kepada sekalian umat berkenaan betapa dahsyatnya hukuman bagi kesalahan ini.
________________________________________________________________

Cukup Dahsyat Tapi Sudah Sedarkah

Oleh

Zaharuddin Abd Rahman

http://www.zaharuddin.net

Tidak dinafikan, sudah diketahui umum, syirik adalah dosa terbesar di dalam Islam. Ia disebutkan dengan jelas dari ayat

إِنَّ اللَّهَ لاَ يَغْفِرُ أَن يُشْرَكَ بِهِ وَيَغْفِرُ مَا دُونَ ذَلِكَ لِمَن يَشَاء

Ertinya : Sesungguhnya Allah tidak akan mengampunkan barangsiapa yang mensyirikkannya, dan (Allah) akan boleh mengampunkan dosa-dosa yang lebih rendah dari syirik.”

Namun, setelah memikirkan berkali-kali baris-baris ayat di bawah, saya tidak boleh menunggu lagi kecuali mesti dengan segera menghebahkannya kepada sekalian umat berkenaan betapa dahsyatnya hukuman bagi kesalahan ini.

الَّذِينَ يَأْكُلُونَ الرِّبَا لاَ يَقُومُونَ إِلاَّ كَمَا يَقُومُ الَّذِي يَتَخَبَّطُهُ الشَّيْطَانُ مِنَ الْمَسِّ ذَلِكَ بِأَنَّهُمْ قَالُواْ إِنَّمَا الْبَيْعُ مِثْلُ الرِّبَا وَأَحَلَّ اللّهُ الْبَيْعَ وَحَرَّمَ الرِّبَا فَمَن جَاءهُ مَوْعِظَةٌ مِّن رَّبِّهِ فَانتَهَىَ فَلَهُ مَا سَلَفَ وَأَمْرُهُ إِلَى اللّهِ وَمَنْ عَادَ فَأُوْلَـئِكَ أَصْحَابُ النَّارِ هُمْ فِيهَا خَالِدُونَ

Ertinya : Orang-orang yang makan (mengambil) riba tidak dapat berdiri melainkan seperti berdirinya orang yang kemasukan setan lantaran (tekanan) penyakit gila. Keadaan mereka yang demikian itu, adalah disebabkan mereka berkata (berpendapat), sesungguhnya jual beli itu sama dengan riba, padahal Allah telah menghalalkan jual beli dan mengharamkan riba. Orang-orang yang telah sampai kepadanya larangan dari Tuhannya, lalu terus berhenti (dari mengambil riba), maka baginya apa yang telah diambilnya dahulu (sebelum datang larangan); dan urusannya (terserah) kepada Allah. Orang yang mengulangi (mengambil riba), maka orang itu adalah penghuni-penghuni neraka; mereka kekal di dalamnya. ( Al-Baqarah : 275 )

Itulah kengerian hukuman Allah swt terhadap satu dosa selain syirik. Itulah pengamal riba setelah pengharamannya.

Cuba kita sama-sama petikan penutup ayat di atas

وَمَنْ عَادَ فَأُوْلَـئِكَ أَصْحَابُ النَّارِ هُمْ فِيهَا خَالِدُونَ

Ertinya : Orang yang mengulangi (mengambil riba), maka orang itu adalah penghuni-penghuni neraka; mereka kekal di dalamnya

Imam Ibn Kathir ketika mentafsirkan lafaz ini menyebut :-

ومن عاد أي إلى الربا ففعله بعد بلوغه نهى الله عنه فقد استوجب العقوبة

Ertinya : Lafaz “barangsiapa mengulangi” ertinya kembali terlibat dengan riba hingga terjebak dalamnya walalupun setelah datangnya hukum larangan Allah darinya, hasilnya wajiblah bagi mereka hukuman keras” (Tafsir Al-Quran Al-‘Azim, 1/328)

Berdasarkan dalil-dalil hadis, para ulama membuat kesimpulan bahawa setiap umat Islam yang mengucap dua kalimah shahadah, sebanyak manapun dosa yang dilakukan di atas dunia, mereka akan dihumbankan ke dalam neraka, terkurung didalamnya untuk satu tempoh yang layak bagi dosa mereka, kemudian mereka akan dikeluarkan darinya dengan syafaat Nabi Muhammad s.a.w dalam keadaan mati, kemudian ditempatkan di dalam sungai kehidupan, lalu hiduplah kembali. Semua ini dicatatkan dalam hadis. (Syarah Sohih Muslim, An-Nawawi, 3/36 )

Selanjutnya Imam An-Nawawi mengulas terdapat lima jenis syafaat yang diberikan kepada Nabi Muhammad s.a.w di akhirat kelak iaitu ( Syarah Sohih Muslim, 3/36) :-

1) Memberi tenang dan rehat dari hiruk pikuk mahsyar dan menyegerakan seseorang untuk masuk ke Syurga. Syafaat ini khusus untuk Nabi Muhammad s.a.w.

2) Memasukkan seseorang ke Syurga tanpa hisab, peruntukan syafaat ini juga terdapat untuk Nabi Muhammad s.a.w.

3) Kaum yang wajib dihumban di neraka boleh diselamatkan oleh Nabi s.a.w

4) Mengeluarkan kaum yang sedang diazab di neraka untuk kembali ke Syurga kecuali bagi mereka yang mati dalam keadaan kafir.

5) Peningkatan darjat di syurga agar mendapat tahap syurga yang lebih baik.

Sedarkah ?!

Namun sedarkah kita dan mereka di sekeliling kita, keluarga, rakan dan lainnya bahawa, berterusan dalam dosa riba boleh menyebabkan seseorang itu dianggap menghalalkan riba setelah pengharamannya lalu jatuh kafir mereka itu, tatkala itu matinya mereka adalah dengan hati kekafiran hingga terkeluar dari senarai mereka yang boleh mendapat syafaat nabi Muhammad s.a.w.

Berhati-hatilah dan amat wajib bagi semua muslim yang meyakini ada maut untuk menjauhi riba. Kita amat bimbang, ketidakpedulian itu adalah merupakan satu keingkaran terhadap hukum haramnya. Seterusnya boleh mejatuhkan seseorang dalam kekafiran tanpa sedar hingga melayakkan seseorang itu kekal di neraka. Nabi juga tidak mempunyai peruntukan untuk memberi bantuan (syafaat) kepada golongan sebegitu. Moga kita semua dipelihara oleh Allah swt.

Inilah yang diulas oleh Imam Fakhruddin Ar-razi apabila beliau menghurauikan maksud ‘orang yang kembali’ dalam ayat di atas sebagai :-

فالمعنى ومن عاد إلى استحلال الربا حتى يصير كافراً

Ertinya : erti ayat “barangsiapa yang kembali” (di atas, adalah bermakna mereka kembali menghalalkan riba sehingga mereka itu jadi kafir. ( Tafsir Al-Kabir, 7/82)

Akhirnya, alasan sibuk, malas, belum sampai seru, nanti dan pelabagi pagi alasan orang di zaman ini dari berubah dari pinjaman rumah riba, kereta riba, kad kredit riba, akaun simpanan riba, insuran riba, skim riba, pelaburan riba, mahal sikit la, leceh proses, belum ada masa dan pelbagai lagi TIDAK WAJAR SAMA SEKALI wujud dalam hati individu yang bernama MUKMIN MUSLIM.

Itu pun jika ingin selamat diakhirat, jika tidak..tunggulah bila waktunya tiba.

Sekian

Why do we read The Holy Quran, even if we can’t understand a single Arabic word?

An old American Muslim lived on a farm in the mountains of eastern Kentucky
with his young grandson. Each morning Grandpa was up early sitting at the
kitchen table reading his Quran.  His grandson wanted to be just like him
and tried to imitate him in every way he could.

One day the grandson asked, ‘Grandpa! I try to read the Quran just like you
but I don’t understand it, and what I do understand I forget as soon as I
close the book. What good does reading the Quran do?’

The Grandfather quietly turned from putting coal in the stove and replied,
‘Take this coal basket down to the river and bring me back a basket of
water.’

The boy did as he was told, but all the water leaked out before he got back
to the house. The grandfather laughed and said, ‘You’ll have to move a
little faster next time,’ and sent him back to the river with the basket to
try again. This time the boy ran faster, but again the basket was empty
before he returned home. Out of breath, he told his grandfather that it was
impossible to carry water in a basket, and he went to get a bucket instead.

The old man said, ‘I don’t want a bucket of water; I want a basket of water.
You’re just not trying hard enough,’ and he went out the door to watch the
boy try again.

At this point, the boy knew it was impossible, but he wanted to show his
grandfather that even if he ran as fast as he could, the water would leak
out before he got back to the house. The boy again dipped the basket into
river and ran hard, but when   he reached his grandfather the basket was
again empty. Out of breath, he said, ‘See Grandpa, it’s useless!’

‘So you think it is useless?’ The old man said, ‘Look at the basket.’

The boy looked at the basket and for the first time realized that the basket
was different. It had been transformed from a dirty old coal basket and was
now clean, inside and out..

‘Son, that’s what happens when you read the Quran. You might not understand
or remember everything, but when you read it, you will be changed, inside
and out.  That is the work of Allah in our lives.’

Take care our 1st wife…

Once upon a time. There was a rich merchant who had four (4) wives.

He loved the 4th wife the most and adorned her with rich robes and treated her to delicacies. He took great care of her and gave her nothing but the best.

He also loved the 3rd wife very much. He’s very proud of her and always wanted to show off her to his friends. However, the merchant is always in great fear that she might run away with some other men.

He too, loved his 2nd wife. She is a very considerate person, always patient and in fact is the merchant’s confidante. Whenever the merchant faced some problems, he always turned to his 2nd wife and she would always help him out and tide him through difficult times.

Now, the merchant’s 1st wife is a very loyal partner and has made great contributions in maintaining his wealth and business as well as taking care of the household. However, the merchant did not love the first wife and although she loved him deeply, he hardly took notice of her.

One day, the merchant fell ill. Before long, he knew that he was going to die soon. He thought of his luxurious life and told himself, “Now I have 4 wives with me. But when I die, I’ll be alone. How lonely I’ll be!” Thus, he asked the 4th wife, “I loved you most, endowed you with the finest clothing and showered great care over you. Now that I’m dying, will you follow me and keep me company?”

“No way!” replied the 4th wife and she walked away without another word.

The answer cut like a sharp knife right into the merchant’s heart.

The sad merchant then asked the 3rd wife, “I have loved you so much for all my life. Now that I’m dying, will you follow me and keep me company?”

“No!” replied the 3rd wife. “Life is so good over here! I’m going to remarry when you die!” The merchant’s heart sank and turned cold.

He then asked the 2nd wife, “I always turned to you for help and you’ve always helped me out. Now I need your help again. When I die, will you follow me and keep me company?” “I’m sorry, I can’t help you out this time!” replied the 2nd wife. “At the very most, I can only send you to your grave.” The answer came like a bolt of thunder and the merchant was devastated.

Then a voice called out: “I’ll leave with you. I’ll follow you no matter where you go.” The merchant looked up and there was his first wife. She was so skinny, almost like she suffered from malnutrition.

Greatly grieved, the merchant said, “I should have taken much better care of you while I could have!”

Actually, we all have 4 wives in our lives. The 4th wife is our body. No matter how much time and effort we lavish in making it look good, it’ll leave us when we die.

Our 3rd wife is our possessions, status and wealth. When we die, they all go to others.

The 2nd wife is our family and friends. No matter how close they had been there for us when we’re alive, the furthest they can stay by us is up to the grave.

The 1st wife is in fact our soul, often neglected in our pursuit of material wealth and sensual pleasure.

Guess what? It is actually the only thing that follows us wherever we go. Perhaps it’s a good idea to cultivate and strengthen it now rather than to wait until we’re on our deathbed to lament.

Journey to Islam

Taufeq and hidayah. Some people may be born as an Islam, but the hidayah is not there.  This is the story of Hidayah. It is indeed Allah that give it to the people whenever, wherever and whoever that he want to, he choose to.

“From life without limbs, to life without limits”

This is among most inspiring video I have ever seen. This is a perfect example of how power full the mind can be and how important faith is. Nick Vujicic showed everyone that nothing is impossible when he propped himself up using his head and a book.

My Mum is Amazing…

She wakes up early in the morning with a smile
And she holds my head up high
Don’t you ever let anybody put you down
Cos you are my little angel

Then she makes something warm for me to drink
Cos it’s cold out there, she thinks
Then she walks me to school, Yes I aint no fool
I just think my Mom is amazing

BRIDGE/CHORUS
She makes me feel
Like I can do anything
and when she’s with me
there’s no where else, I’d rather be…

After School, she’s waiting by the gate
I’m so happy that I just can’t wait
To get home to tell her how my day went
And eat the yummy food, only my Mom makes

Then I wind her up cos I don’t wanna bath
And we run around the house with a laugh
No matter what I say, she gets her way
I think my Mom is amazing

BRIDGE/CHORUS

In the evening, she tucks me into bed
And I wrap my arms around her head
Then she tells me a tale of a girl far away
Who one day became a princess

I’m so happy, I don’t want her to leave
So she lies in bed with me
As I close my eyes, how lucky am I
To have a Mom that’s so amazing

BRIDGE/CHORUS

Then I wake up in the morning, she’s not there
And I realize she never was
And I’m still here in this lonely orphanage
With so many just like me

And as my dreams begin to fade
I try hard to look forward to my day
But there’s a pain in my heart that’s a craving
How I wish I had a Mom that’s amazing
Would be amazing

Allah certainly has unique ways to show His love.

This is the real life journey of Mas Afzal. A journey that brought tears into my eyes.

There is a boy who wishes to accomplish many things in his life. He worked his socks off in school, strived for excellence and eventually garnered top grades in his studies. He wanted to fulfill his lifelong ambition of becoming a good doctor, and his wishes came true when he was offered a scholarship to pursue medicine.

Until this point of time, life has always gone by his wishes. What he aspired in life all came true. Growing from a little child into adulthood has been a rewarding experience for him, one filled with joy and happiness. Even though there were bumps along the way, he felt that nothing could stop his march towards achieving great things in life.

He wanted to become a successful doctor, treating people to his best ability so that by the will of Allah, he can save lives, just as how he imagined it to be when he was a child. He dreamt of building his own family and raise beautiful children to bring joys into his life.

But this is when his life took a turn for the worst, as he is afflicted with a test he has never thought could jeopardize all his plans. He might not be able to live up to his dreams of being the best doctor possible. He possibly has to forget his plans of having his own ideal family and his very own beautiful children. The so many great things he aspire in life might just in the end, be dreams.

Oh, how cruel can a twist in life be. A minute you’re on top of the world, but by the next blink of the eye, here you are, as low as you can get.

The boy could have easily felt shattered and despise his luck. But before emotions run over him, he is reminded that this is what life is all about.

He knew that he can only make so many plans in life, but the ultimate end is in the hands of His God. Things might just not go by his plan, but he must teach his heart to accept fate. He must tell himself to believe in the wisdom of the things that have been decreed upon him, by his Almighty Creator.


No affliction befalls in the earth, by way of drought [for example], or in yourselves, such as illness, or the loss of a child, but it is in a Book, meaning, the Preserved Tablet (al-lawh al-mahfūz), before We bring it about, [before] We create it — the same is said [to be true] of [God’s] graces — that is indeed easy for God. [57:22]

No matter how hard things can be, the boy knew he must try to swallow it. Bitter it might taste, trials and tribulations are part and parcel of life. He knew that life in this world is only temporary, a transition point, before he embarks on an eternal journey in a different place. A place he hopes to be in, where he knows there will only be joy and happiness therein, with no pains and sufferings. A place where whatever the boy wishes, will come true. A place that boy knows as Jannah, or heaven.

But until that time comes, the boy knows that he has to keep on fighting. Life is indeed a struggle, and what has transpired over the last year or so has taught him a lot about fortitude.

The boy is not going to let the things he experienced over the last week to deter him from BELIEVING. No matter how far the boy falls down, he will get up again. And again. And he will do so until His Creator tells him that it is TIME.

From; Not the Primrose Path. By Mas Afzal
