Katakanlah : Aku bukanlah rasul yang pertama di antara rasul-rasul dan aku tidak mengetahui apa yang akan diperbuat terhadapku dan tidak pula terhadapmu. Aku tidak lain hanyalah mengikuti apa yang diwahyukan kepadaku dan aku tidak lain hanyalah seorang pemberi peringatan yang menjelaskan. Surah al Ahqaf ayat 9
Point Pertama : Nabi dan rasul mempunyai mukjizat yang dianugerahkan oleh Allah sebagai membuktikan kebenaran agama Allah. Namun, disebalik kemukjizatan yang dimiliki oleh setiap nabi dan rasul, dalam melibatkan perkara-perkara yang ghaib, nabi dan rasul juga tidak terkecuali seperti manusia biasa. Hanya Allah sahaja yang Maha Mengetahui. Nabi Muhammad s.a.w sendiri tidak mengetahui bila hari kiamat ? Apakah itu roh ? Bila seseorang itu akan mati ?
Sebab itu Allah mendatangkan para nabi dan rasul. Kenapa ? Kerana untuk manusia menerima secara langsung segala arahan, larangan, kewajipan, dosa dan pahala, syurga dan neraka, malaikat dan iblis yang kesemuanya datang dari Allah tentulah tidak mampu. Disebabkan bebanan pemikiran yang terlalu besar dan sukar untuk diterima secara langsung. Perlu ada orang yang menerangkan segala perkara ini, yang padanya ada mukjizat sebagai pembuktian bahawa ini risalah Allah, lantaran itu diturunkan wahyu itu juga dikalangan manusia, bukan dikalangan t-rex, jin ifrit, raksasa ultraman yang jauh dari fitrah asal manusia.
Sebagai contoh, kuasa elektrik yang terjana daripada empangan, batu arang, air sungai atau laut sekiranya kuasa voltan tinggi itu melalui kabel elektrik, sudah tentu laptop sony Viao, tv, samsung galaxy s2, aircond dan segala peralatan elektrik akan meletup dan terbakar disebabkan ketidakmampuan menerima kuasa voltan elektrik yang terlalu tinggi. Sebab itu dicipta satu peralatan yang bernama ‘transformer’ yang mana tugas transformer ini menukar kuasa yang tinggi itu kepada kuasa yang lebih rendah sehingga ia dapat diterima oleh segala peralatan elektrik.
Begitulah juga manusia. Perlu ada nabi dan rasul yang menerangkan dahulu perkara ini dan disokong oleh mukjizat, bahawa ini adalah dari Allah. Mana mungkin manusia boleh menerima segala tugasan ini tanpa nabi dan rasul. Sedangkan ada nabi dan rasul pun manusia masih sesat dan mengaku hebat, inikan pula tiada nabi dan rasul, sudah tentu terperosok dan lemas dalam lautan kesesatan.
Point Kedua : Kita semua patut bersyukur kerana walaupun pada ayat tersebut baginda Rasulullah s.a.w mengakui bahawa bukanlah beliau nabi dan rasul yang pertama, tetapi telah wujud nabi dan rasul sebelumnya, namun pada hakikatnya mengikut pandangan Ahlis Sunnah Wal Jamaah bahawa jasad baginda Rasulullah s.a.w itu adalah lebih mulia daripada segala makhluk yang telah diciptakan Allah termasuk malaikat dan arasy.
Ini bermakna, bahawa mereka yang menjadi umat baginda Rasulullah s.a.w adalah sebaik-baik umat. Nabi Muhammad s.a.w diberikan Allah syafaat untuk membebaskan hamba-hambanya daripada api neraka yang tidak dianungerahkan Allah pada lain-lain nabi dan rasul. Namun apa yang menyedihkan kita pada hari ini, masyarakat Malaysia lebih gemar untuk memuja, memuji dan mengidola para artis berbanding menjadikan baginda Rasulullah s.a.w sebagai mentor dalam apa juga segi dan tatacara kehidupan. Malah ada juga yang menghina dan menentang sunnah Rasulullah s.a.w.
Point Ketiga : Sudah menjadi kewajipan kita untuk membuktikan kecintaan dan kesayangan pada Rasulullah s.a.w itu adalah dengan mengamalkan sunnahnya dan memperbanyakkan selawat ke atas baginda Rasulullah s.a.w. Apabila seseorang mengingati orang yang dicintai, sudah tentu ia seringkali menyebut namanya dan melakukan perkara yang disukainya dan menjauhi perkara yang dibencinya. Itulah lumrah mencintai seseorang. Anda tahu bagaimana Bilal bin Rabbah dari Habsyi membuktikan kecintaannya pada Rasulullah s.a.w selepas kewafatannya ?
Dikisahkan selepas sahaja kewafatan baginda Rasulullah s.a.w, Bilal bin Rabbah telah melepaskan jawatannya sebagai muazzin utama di masjid nabi. Lantas dia berkata : Dahulu semasa aku azan, Rasulullah s.a.w bersama kita, sekarang Rasulullah s.a.w sudah tiada lagi semasa aku melaungkan azan. Lantaran kesedihan mengingati Rasulullah s.a.w, Bilal bin Rabbah berhijrah ke Syam. Selang beberapa tahun kemudian, beliau kembali semula ke Madinah dan melaungkan azan. Apa yang terjadi selepas itu ? Seluruh penduduk Madinah menangis apabila mendengar azan Bilal bin Rabbah, bukan menangis kerana rindu kepada Bilal bin Rabah, tetapi menangis kerana mengenangkan Rasulullah s.a.w yang telah lama meninggalkan mereka.
* Fif, i think you could make some addition for this article and elaborate it with your own thought and knowledge, and it might be better. I wished i could attach some dalil to be more pop and interesting, but due i had busiest task today, let i handover it to you. Tomorrow, take a time to keep your breathe and hit (belasah) them cukup-cukup until you can make them crying like baby in remembering our Prophet (P.b.u.h). And then your mission accomplished.
Last night i played badminton at Johor Jaya. Commonly, during Tuesday and Friday night i’ll spare my time joining the Kelab Badminton Habibillah (K.B.H) to sharp our skills like Lee Chong Wei or Lin Dan. Hehehe. I have been joining this club since 2 months ago and keep playing without any suitable partner yet. Alhamdulillah, at least i have a place to keep my stamina become energetic, rechargeable dan release my moody and tension for a week. One of the most important thing you join the club is to make friend and networking. And when your networking widespread and broaden, as usual you can sharing knowledge, skills, experience and many more.
My first impression when joining the club was awesome, because almost of the member are high skill trainers. That means, if u play ‘cap ayam’ and no opportunity to improve your game, its humiliate. Playing badminton its just not to keep your body warm, but to keep u play well and be good competitor. At every age we are playing, don’t ever try to underestimate your opponent. Learn to respect others and be proffesional. Until soon you just not becoming a good player but good in habit and proper attitude.
I’m also had a chance took 2 photos and attach to this blog. U will see how fantastic were played. Sometimes it will take about 1 hour to finish the game when you facing the giant. I’m just only small ant and no longer active as i’m younger back. Actually, our game full with hilarious, rumors and jokes. Because half of our member are senior, from age within 45 years old to 60 years old. No wonder if the senior is always give commitment rather junior. Don’t say when they were 60 years old, their skill also old alike. Trust me, if you play with them, you can never beat them with single blow.
Hang Tuah and his Companion, Mahsuri, Puteri Gunung Ledang are the famous and similar for Malaysian’s historical. Indeed the sources of those stories still not re-evaluate by historian, its like a truth stories and not a myth or epic. From point of me, an epic still based on true story which has been defined by Malay Dictionary (Kamus Dewan) but to compare with Islamic doctrine evaluation, its unacceptable. Islamic methodology must strictly based on Hadeeth in entire subject and act. And Hadeeth must have proper isnad. With these isnad, the fact will be define as truth or fraud. Thats why, i’m bringing this topic to make some discussion between historical methodology and Hadeeth methodology in order to assess the purity of information and fact.
Most of our historical story was based on perception. If one of Malaysia historian was a Prof, he has his own opinion contrary with others. When we asked what book did he referred, he listed and we started searching the books. After we got the books, we read and begin make conclusion. Lastly, was perception. Why i’m saying like that ? Upon you make reference from these books, there was no sources from the origin character. Let’s say, Hang Tuah and his Companion was founded on 15th century, but truthful sources of the Hang Tuah stories was book History Of Malaya by Richard O. Instedt. He was born on 2 August 1878 and died on 2 June 1966. He’s not Malaysian, but British. How non of Malaysian didn’t note these important historical ? Can you make believe the person that live in 19th century had wrote and made prediction and prophecy that was happened on 16th century ? It’s ridiculous, unless they were isnad that proven these facts.
As we know, when come to the Islamic historical, its should stand with isnad whether came from Hadeeth or A’thar or scholars statement. Instead we can’t argue the separate of time of the old scholars of Hadeeth and the modern historians lately, in fact they both have their great deal in the field of criticism. They both had such great manner that should we practices to fulfill in seeking the truth. The historian investigates the origin source whether or not it has been changed or disavowed in the course of its transmission, the sahih meaning of the testimony and to reassure the witness is competent(ad Dhobtu) and truthful. These particular of method directly fingered to the source may be either a Successor, a Companion or the Prophet himself. The exercise in which scholars of Hadeeth establish this information by going through investigation of the isnad, without Hadeeth the history has no value. It is significant for the purposes of Islam to identify whether the Islamic practices today which based on Hadeeth or fraud. Contrary almost of Malaysian history didn’t stand with this methodology, as we said the history today was made by perception of historians outside from sahih sources. Could you evaluate for us the Bukit Kepong stories ? Ada berani ?
Since yesterday my healthy was not good enough. I’m feel very tired and i don’t know how to cure it. Firstly, my stomach vibrates and followed with migration and then my entire body feel weaken. My neighbourhood, Haider gave me Pil Chi Kit Tek Aun and couldn’t recover it. I spent a lot of time to sleep and when i got up, it couldn’t refresh my body simultaneously. Maybe for along time i couldn’t sleep very well that’s why it happened, for sure it make me worried. As long as i expect this disease wouldn’t seems seriously, i wanted to be a patient and the same time as a doctor. It’s too early for rushing to hospital or clinic. I began with surfing an internet, searching and looking the signs of the disease, and then identified, at the last a long listed of medicine that should have be taken daily or weekly.
Alhamdulillah. Praise to Allah because still give me a breathe and good healthy of mind and body that could still keep me a chance to make some contribution to Islam. It’s make me really pop hah. If Allah doesn’t bestowed his pleasure to us, how we wanna feel these kind of happiness and prosperity. I’m recovered after two days. Thank you Allah.
Islamic and current issues is the most important subject to me. Although it just only elective subject for Utm’s student, but its quite effective to disclosure student the important to be a good Muslim. For this semester, i taught two classes FGHT. Most of my students are Muslim and a plenty of them are non. But respectively, i’m impress with my non Muslim students, their participated on this subject was very excellent.
This week and till next, will be the last classes, and then study week and lastly final. The time is going too fast. Too fast and too furious to me, hehe. This statement is not referring to the film hah. And i’m also done my responsibility displaying their carry mark at E-learning. Even for this semester i had carried just two classes only, but i’m truthly enjoying these classes. But sadly, this subject is elective portion. I can’t imagine how beautiful is it, if Islamic and engineering or science or medic subject becomes one, compulsory to all student Muslim. At this moment, the magnificent of Islam will appearance and i want to be among that contribute this agenda. Amiin.
I’m hated read newspaper now. Most of newspaper. What newspaper’s ? You count it how much newspaper in Malaysia, and u will know then. Almostly, i had read a lot of newspaper. But many of newspaper is not entertaining the beautiful of Iman and Islam, the power of knowledge, the significant of polite and respecting others, the essential of facts and research and the most important things is not crap and “fitnah”.
I’m hate not of because it’s full with hedonism, gossip between artist and entertainment, but it’s about speculator for the whole issues, such as political, economy and society that doesn’t tell the truth and outside of what are really happened now. I’m sad. How dare a group of journalists creating a crap news, separating fitnah’s fire into society and rips an amanah that should be taken seriously by them and at the end, we will seen many people surrounding by liar news, hating each other just because of newspaper.
To whom it may concern, not fingering to government as well, i mean to people that loving the purely amanah news, should gagging the newspaper that always keep fitnah as their main news, and banned it from to take apart in mainstream newspaper.
Commonly, most of the people doesn’t know how to share a problem and which is the best way to release and solve it. At last, they keep quiet and saving a lot of problem until it bushes and become tumors. Islam has the way to cheer it and most of the people doesn’t want to take this opportunity even there a alarming consequences.
Like Imam Ghazali said in his book Ihya Ulumuddin, we shall have one that we called “guru mursyid” to guidance us the faith path that we are believing the advisor is always keep our secret not disclosure to other people. But is guru mursyid is still existence in this globalization era ? And how we want to identified him ?
As what was happened to the western, upon people having a lot of trouble, somebody will going to church and discussing with his Father to demolish the sins that what they have done. But Father is not a god. He just an advisor to bring people the right way of life. For a sinner, they always realize if the sin was demolished, it will make the life truly happiness. It means the sin is a disease.
For me, if anyone having a problem, they also have their rights to share with other people. That’s why the counselor is a great job and making high profit in western and i am not arguing with this facts. For a muslim, if you haven’t any guru mursyid, reciting al Quran, remembering Allah, make assessment (muhasabah) to change and be a better person and read a lot of books about the companion of our Prophet, it will not make you regret, and that is the way that we are should entering it.
Make your days always with Iman and be humble, its keep you an energetic.
Nowadays, many institution are shaping their policy to attract a lot of students in sustaining enrolment in order to make money and providing the best way of study. For those who son’s or daughter’s tycoon there are no problem at all. But for the people ‘kais pagi makan pagi’, they have no money and always becoming uneducated. It seems that, the role of higher education now is to accelerate and make profit like MLM.
Let’s say, someone had graduated from one institution in Malaysia. This student will promote to their siblings, relatives, friends in blog, fb, twitter and so on with explanation why should you choose this institution and why not others. Originally, its like more an opinion and experience to them, but apparently it’s become promoting the core business and generate profit. The diffrent is, the MLM will pay each ‘air liur’ which did you promoted, but this doesn’t.
I like to respond to article that has been written by Prof. Dr. Dzulkifli Abdul Razak on NST dated December 18 2011, he said ‘ financial resources seem to be the main determinant of how universities will be shape in order to survive. Currently, many countries have resorted to increasing fees several folds even in areas that are traditionally not acceptable to do so. Already there are alarming consequences. Students are postponing their studies because of the need to earn enough money to purse tertiary education. In some cases, reportedly, this has caused a drop in enrolment ‘.
If we are looking to the principal of Islamic studying in era enlightenment of knowledge Abbassiyah Caliph, the Islamic studies was totally free and no charge at all. Al-Azhar university, Islamic University of Medina traditionally took this opportunity for along time and they are still practices this method, providing free educational to whom are greedy to learn Islamic studies. But in Malaysia, why this policy has not been yet practices ? The best answer is, there is no free charge today even you make enrolment with toilet also should pay 30 cents per enter.
When i referring to the opinion of Imam Ghazali thoughts, in his book ” Ihya Ulumuddin “ you will find the important of Islamic studies to the world and why Allah always keep this studies from generation to other legacy without paying much money to be an Ulama’. It’s also reasonable and no wonder why Imam Ghazali named his book with Ihya Ulumuddin, it means re-alive Islamic studies. In other way, we should learn how these universities can producing the great Ulama without paying any fees to reach tertiary education. We have to learn.
It’s a long time for me do not update this blog. Nowadays i having a busiest moment in my job or due of lacking manageable time. For me now, the time is too precious. One minute can change the world but the most essential is, your iman also would be high and low in one minute. That’s why al Quran always reminding that the clock is ticking. Some people maybe realize and a lot doesn’t.
I have a couple of stories wanna tell to everybody through this blog since i have been ‘ghuyub’. Because we all sharing a similar sentiment. As long as u are Muslim it doesn’t mean that u can hide and disappearing from called (dakwah) task. There is no exception from this job, unless u are not Muslim.
The best way to make our Iman to be more senses is touching the most sensitive issues. That’s why Islam is so very sensitive, in order to protect our Ummah from improper attitude and manner.
What topic i am ready for discussing about ? Follow me.
