Get Ready For His Test!

Allah will inevitably test His believing servants according to their level of faith, as it recorded in the authentic Hadits: " The people most severely tested are The Prophets, then the righteous, then the next best and next best. A man will be tested in accordance with the degree of his religious commitment, the stronger his religious commitment, the stronger his test. " Allah, may He be glorified and exalted, knows what has happened in the past and what is yet to come, and He knows how that which will not happen would have happened if it were to happen. Subhanallah, Alhamdulillah, Allahhu Akbar!

Let's penetrate the Al-Quran Messages

Wednesday, December 22, 2010

Soon, Insya Allah, i will try my best to share with you  little by little about what is the tafseer of the al-Quran by our Islamic Scholars in order to increase our comprehension about the true meanings of the Kalamullah for our guide in continuing this life.

The Challenges of Islam Today

The utmost important of the challenges of Islam to-day is the problems that facing non-Muslim in understanding some of critical issues regarding their unsatisfaction towards Islam. The critical issues are as follows:


1) Hijab for Women (A)
The question that always been asked is, why Islam discriminate women with hiding them at the back of curtain (Hijab)? Before we answered this question, shall we observe the women status before the existence of Islam, it can see as follow: 


a) The Babylon civilization
They were denied the justice for women, for example if the men killed the other men or women, his wife will punished for his crime.

b) The Greek civilization
They accepted women status same as the animal. The prostitution is common in Greeks civilization.

c) The Roman Civilization
The male have a right to kill his wife. The prostitution too is common in Rome civilization same as the Babylonian. 

d) The Egyptian Civilization
The ancient Egyptian society accepted the woman is evil and they are the sign of evil.

e) The Arab’s before the existence of Islam
Before the existence of Islam the Arab’s people had discriminate their women. They often buried their daughter who had just been birth.



1) Hijab for Women (B)
 When Islam reached, it has appreciated the status of women. This contain actually as followed what had been stated in al-Quran and Sunnah. Basically it has six criteria as follows:

1. The limit of Aurat: the aurat for male is; at least he must cover his body from the middle of body until his knee. For women, she must cover her whole body, except her face and hands. Several ulama say that the women face and hands is compulsory to cover in the rule of hijab. Beside that five more criteria the rule of clothing for women and man.
2. They must wear the loose cloth and it not exposed any part of the body.
3. They can’t wear the transparent cloth that can expose the skin inside the cloth.
4. They can’t wear the cloth that obviously too glamour that can attract the other’s gender.
5. They can’t wear the cloth that similar with the opponent gender.
6. They can’t wear the cloth that have an image that doesn’t showed the Islamic culture such as the cross sign.


Hijab too not only to cover someone body but it can cover their habit, such as they way they walk, speak and others. The other hijab from the clothing hijab that should consist is the eye, heart, thinking and intention hijab. As follow the words of Allah s.w.t in surah Al-Ahzab 33:59 with mean that hijab was suggested for women so that they can be the polite person and avoid them from rappers. Islam very concern about the right for women especially for appreciated their status. For example, for the rapped case following to Islamic syariat, who are accused as guilty from raping the women, we will sentence them to death. In West, they against about this and they are discriminate the women with take them as “sugar baby” also as the hooker. United States of America (USA) is one country that posses highest rapped crime case beside become a progressive country in the world. The conclusion is, if a country in the world practice to wear the hijab, this world would become more peaceful.



2) Islam spread off with the sword
 The statement in above is not true. The reason can see as follow:

a) The meaning of Islam
 Peaceful is the meaning of Islam. Surrender and Godly to Allah. However, if we had been beaten and discriminate without guilty, we should to fight back. May be this is one of factors why Islam can be spreaded quickly in the past years and the Islam enemy had label it as spreaded with the war or through the sword. For this context Al-Qur’an in surah Al-Baqarah 2: 256 had explained:

“Let there no compulsion in religion: Truth stands out clear from Error: whoever rejects Evil and believes in God hath grasped the most trustworthy handhold, that never breaks. And God heareth and knoweth all things.”Beside, Allah had order with the brilliant, “the sword” that more sharp to conquer the human heart and thinking in surah An-Nahl 16: 25

“Let them bear, on the Day of Judgment, their own burdens in full, and also (something) of the burdens in full, and also (something) of the burdens of those without knowledge, whom they misled." 

b) De Lacy O’Leary in his book, Islam at the Cross Roads.
 This book had explained that the history has proven that the muslim’s who were fanatic in spreaded Islam with force and brutal actually is fake. The De Lacy O’Leary statement is very true if we look from history fact such as Islam in Spain, Indonesia, Arab’s country and the east coast of Africa.
In Spain, Islam had ruled this country for 800 years. Islam grew very fast in here with the development of knowledge that proven the Islam itself. The developments of knowledge are very popular in Europe on that time that centered in Cordova. But, later on the Cross Fighters was used the sword to discriminate and dissipate the Muslims from Spain.



2) Islam spread off with the sword
 Most of Indonesia citizen is Muslims, the history was witnessed that Islam separated here without the military action. In the Arab’s country itself, Islam has existed for 1,400 years ago but there still have 14 millions the Arab people believe to Christian. If Islam grow up with the sword there will no more the Christian people. In India, Islam had based in India government for a thousand years and for now, more than 80% its citizen believed to Hindu gods. If the Muslim take a brutality action same as what had done by Christian army to the Muslim, probably the Hindu disciples not many as today. It’s same with the progression of Islam in East Coast of Africa, there no have even one Muslims soldiers invade that region.

c) The Progression of Islam today.
 The progression of Islam is very fast for this time in the world. According to one article that published by Reader’s Digest that entitled Almanac in 1986 and The Plain Truth , Islam had grew up in 235% rate for 30 years period (1954-1984), however Christian has 47% rate of progression. The progression of Islam is very fast in America and Europe rather than other religion. What must highlighted in here is the rapidly progression not involved the brutality action or in other word with using the sword. It might be accurate if we said it spreaded with using the “eye of pen” or “the eye of heart”.
Followed to Sunday Times (London), many of white man elite embrace to Islam. One research was held by Yahya Birt; before this he was known as Jonathan Birt, son of Lord Birt the former Director of British Broadcasting Council (BBC) was given the strong data about the amount of the white man elite that embrace to Islam in Britain. He concludes that have 14,200 the white man elite had converted to Islam. He said, at the beginning he don’t have a strong reason to embrace Islam, but he realize that the entire Islam is so deep, balance, logic and the spirit of the way of life in Islam is so convinced him. Beside that, in the same week he witness the grand, grand child of former Britain Prime Minister, Emma Clark, determined to choose Islam as her way of life.



3) The relationship between Islam, Fundamentalist and Terrorist.
 The truly is the words of terrorism is very too hasty to label for Muslims. This had been planned by the people who fear with their own shadow because Islam has been rapidly blossomed in peacefully at their countries. Islam prohibit to all human killing each other except with the reason that allowed by syara’. Allah had say with the meaning:

“On that account: We ordained for the Children of Israel that if any one slew a person – unless it be for murder or for spreading mischief in the land – it would be as if he slew the whole people: and if any one saved a life, it would be as if he saved the life of the whole people. Then although there came to them Our messengers with Clear Signs, yet, even after that, many of them continued to commit excesses in the land”
(QS, Al-Maidah 5:32)

The words of fundamental had been misused. In the beginning these words are used to refer a group of Christian people who believe Bible is the holy words without any mistake from the god. Followed to the oxford dictionary fundamentalism is meant extremely believe to the any old religion fundamental doctrine especially Islam. It rare in this world today, if someone used the word fundamentalist; they will think about the Muslims terrorists. Actually, its truly meaning followed to Dr. Zakir Abdul Karim Naik, the fundamentalist is the people who practice and obey to the theory of doctrine that followed by them. However, this fundamentalist supposed refer to related activity. If the robber is the fundamentalist, they will create the danger situation for the society, but if the Doctor is the fundamentalist they will become a good doctor and appreciated by the society.
In this context, it’s bizarre to label the Muslims who accepted as patriot of hero as the ‘terrorist’ who believe what are they doing. For example before India gain they independence from British, a few national figure who fight for the independence of India that do their work with peace had categorizes as the terrorist by the British. Its too happen in Malaysia before we can declare as free, Mat Kilau was accepted as terrorist by the British. Mat Kilau, the Malay independence fighter, not only declared as terrorist but he had accused as the traitor. The true fact is, Mat Kilau is the pure fighter who against the colonialism of English for that time in Pahang, Peninsular of Malaysia.
Because of this, all the Muslim must become a fundamentalist to Islam for understand the truth of meaning and thought of Islam that carry the meaning of the peaceful and society justice. In Islamic context, it forbids to all disciples to punish someone without strong evidence. About the killing matter, Islam was forbid to kill someone except there have an enough evident to prove they guilty followed the syura’ rule.
The question is, who is the true “TERRORIST” actually in this globalization context today? Who is the number one Murderer? You may know the answer when we view on the clear evidence based on Three Important World Tragedy in this century; The World Trade Centre (WTC) bombing, the invasion of Iraq and the murdered of Rafik Hariri

LET'S SPREAD THE MESSAGE OF ISLAM!

The Sustenance from The Ever Providing - الرزاق

Tuesday, December 21, 2010

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم 
In the name of Allah, The Most Gracious, The Most Merciful


According to the language, sustenance (rezeki) has some different meaning, among other is : it is a gift from Allah that have the quality in worldly or for the Hereafter; the fate of someone or his part in this life; and the foods or drinks which go into the stomach (please refer to Al-Mufradat by Ar-Raghib Al-Asfahani for more precise meaning). In accordance with the above definition, there are two types of sustenance, that is halal (permitted)  sustenance and haram (forbidden)  sustenance.


In the Al-Quran, the word رز ق (sustenance) is repeated amounting to 120 times. According to the  tafseer scholars, the word رز ق  in the Al-Quran has ten meanings, that are:


#1 : THE GIFT / THE AWARD FROM ALLAH


وَمِمَّا رَزَقۡنَـٰهُمۡ يُنفِقُونَ..
.. and spend out of what We have provided for them. 
(Al-Baqarah, 2 : 3)


#2 : THE SERVING

        قَالُواْ هَـٰذَا ٱلَّذِى رُزِقۡنَا مِن قَبۡلُ‌ۖ 
..they say: "Why this is what we were fed with before"..
( Al-Baqarah, 2 : 25 )

# 3 : THE MORNING AND NIGHT SUSTENANCE
 لَّا يَسۡمَعُونَ فِيہَا لَغۡوًا إِلَّا سَلَـٰمً۬ا‌ۖ وَلَهُمۡ رِزۡقُهُمۡ فِيہَا بُكۡرَةً۬ وَعَشِيًّ۬ا
They will not there hear any vain discourse, but only salutations of peace: and they will have therein their sustenance, morning and evening.
( Maryam, 19 : 62 )

# 4 : THE RAIN

وَمَآ أَنزَلَ ٱللَّهُ مِنَ ٱلسَّمَآءِ مِن رِّزۡقٍ۬
..and the fact that Allah sends down Sustenance from the sky..
( Al-Jathiyah, 45 : 5 )

# 5 : THE NAFFKAH ( THE MONEY GIVEN TO A WIFE FROM A HUSBAND
           FOR HER BASIC NECESSITIES)

وَعَلَى ٱلۡمَوۡلُودِ لَهُ ۥ رِزۡقُهُنَّ وَكِسۡوَتُہُنَّ بِٱلۡمَعۡرُوفِ‌ۚ 
 The duty of feeding and clothing nursing mothers in a seemly manner is upon the father of the child.
( Al-Baqarah 2 : 233 )

# 6 : THE FRUITS

 وَجَدَ عِندَهَا رِزۡقً۬ا‌ۖ 
.. he found that she had food..
( Ali Imran 3 : 37 )

# 7 : THE MERIT / THE REWARD

وَلَا تَحۡسَبَنَّ ٱلَّذِينَ قُتِلُواْ فِى سَبِيلِ ٱللَّهِ أَمۡوَٲتَۢا‌ۚ بَلۡ أَحۡيَآءٌ عِندَ رَبِّهِمۡ يُرۡزَقُونَ 
Think not of those, who are slain in the way of Allah, as dead. Nay, they are living. With their Lord they have provision.
( Ali Imran 3 : 169 )

# 8 : THE HEAVEN

وَلَا تَمُدَّنَّ عَيۡنَيۡكَ إِلَىٰ مَا مَتَّعۡنَا بِهِۦۤ أَزۡوَٲجً۬ا مِّنۡہُمۡ زَهۡرَةَ ٱلۡحَيَوٰةِ ٱلدُّنۡيَا لِنَفۡتِنَہُمۡ فِيهِ‌ۚ وَرِزۡقُ رَبِّكَ خَيۡرٌ۬ وَأَبۡقَىٰ 
And strain not thine eyes toward that which We cause some wedded pairs among them to enjoy, the flower of the life of the world, that We may try them thereby. The provision of thy Lord is better and more lasting.
( Taha 20 : 131 )

# 9 : THE PLANTATION AND LIVESTOCK

قُلۡ أَرَءَيۡتُم مَّآ أَنزَلَ ٱللَّهُ لَكُم مِّن رِّزۡقٍ۬ فَجَعَلۡتُم مِّنۡهُ حَرَامً۬ا وَحَلَـٰلاً۬ قُلۡ ءَآللَّهُ أَذِنَ لَكُمۡ‌ۖ أَمۡ عَلَى ٱللَّهِ تَفۡتَرُونَ 
Say: Have ye considered what provision Allah hath sent down for you, how ye have made of it lawful and unlawful say Hath Allah permitted you, or do ye invent a lie concerning Allah? 
( Yunus 10 : 59 )

# 10 : THE FEEL OF THANKFULNESS

وَتَجۡعَلُونَ رِزۡقَكُمۡ أَنَّكُمۡ تُكَذِّبُونَ 
And make denial thereof your livelihood?
( Al-Waqi'ah 56 : 82 )

Based on the meanings of sustenance that are shown above, so, from the point of the term it means everything that owned by someone in the form of  material, such as food, beverage, home, car, or a non-material, such as inner peace, happiness and other.
 ( please refer to Dalilul Quran al-Karim by Dr. Jamal Atiyyah and his companion, al-Ma'ahad 'Alami lil Fikri al-Islami Publisher, Netherland-1401 H, page 81 ).

May Allah always hold us in His Guidance and Mercy. Wallahu ta'ala a'lam. Allah knows the best.





One Key of Success ; High Level of Tawakkal

Monday, December 20, 2010

Bismillahhirrahmanirrahim.
In the name of Allah, The Most Gracious , The Most Merciful.


"miracles!", "just an accident" , "if i didn't do that, this will not happen"..when something which we are not expected it to happen, was really happen, these are some common words that will fluently flow out from our own mouth, either we realize it or not (or in some cases, between them). Astaghfirullah Al-zim, we seek for your forgiveness O Allah, The All-Great.


Everything that happened in our life is not just happen for no purpose at all. Either the thing make you feel badly hurt or delight, there is something that Allah wants us to learn from it. Are you believe it? Can't accept 'NO' answer!!


And you want to know something (or actually i just want to remind you and me)? When you put your whole heart and whole tawakkal to Allah, 'miracles'(this is most will say) will happen just in a blink! I had experienced this for several times (actually i must have it for every second in my heart =.= astaghfirullah). When the exam weeks come, like usual, i will have some bad thinking in my mind. 'oh, i will fail!!', 'how can i answer the questions?! i don't have sufficient time to revise all the subject! i'm finished!' =.= (don't be like this please). 


But, suddenly it's just like a good voice from my heart said, 'why you are so dizzy about the thing that is not happen yet? Why don't you just put your tawakkal to Allah, The Creator of you. Everything in this world is His creation. The success come from Him. It is do not come from the mua'lim who draft your question, the books that you read, the answer that you write, the Mumtahin who tasmi' your hafazan. It is definitely not from them! It comes from Allah. If He permit it to happen, it will happen and vice versa. If He wants to gives us the chance to grab the success, He will gives it to us. This law will be unchanged.'


As a matter of fact, it is so simple to extend our logic thinking like that, right? When i exchange my bad thought to a fine one, it heals my vacillation. Although there is many chapter i don't revise yet, but as long as i had try my best to achieve the success, and as long as i had strain my best for it, Allah will help me. That is how i made a new hypothesis in my cerebration input.


And lastly, the output is very astonished me! and unexpected too. Alhamdulillah. All praises is just to Allah. I can feel He helped me and give the ease for me to make it. Allah is the best helper. I guarantee that and i am very sure that you believe it too.


In deduction,  The very most important thing we must always get update in our heart is our NIAT. We must look into it all the time, because it is easily be at variance. Let us devote all of our daily activity is just to Him, that will change the level of the work we do to IBADAH. That is the true purpose of our creation in this mirage world. That is to worship Him. May Allah keeps us in His Guidance of Iman and Islam. Wallahu taa'la a'lam. Allah knows the best.



Appreciation to The Holy Book ; the thing we must do

Sunday, December 19, 2010

Bismillahhirahmanirrahim..in the name of Allah, The Most Gracious , The Most Merciful..

Al-Quran is very synonym in a Muslim life as a guider in all matters of life that the Creator of all creatures in this Universe, here and hereafter,had commanded, which revealed to His Prophet, Muhammad S.A.W (peace be upon him). Furthermore, One of the 6 faith pillars in Islam is to believe the Holy Quran (that it was sent to Prophet Muhammad S.A.W. from Allah and to believe and practice all the commandments in it).

Al-Quran juga merupakan mukjizat yang diturunkan kepada Rasulullah S.A.W.(selawatlah ke atas baginda) ketika zaman jahiliah dahulu. Salah satu tanda mukjizat ini adalah Allah telah berjanji di dalam Al-Quran sendiri bahawa Al-Quran ini akan dipelihara sehinggalah The Day of Resurrection tiba. Tambahan lagi, seni dan gaya bahasa yang terkandung di dalamnya sangat menakjubkan. 

Persoalannya sekarang, adakah kita betul-betul menghargai nilai satu-satunya mukjizat yang telah Allah turunkan kepada kita ini? Adakah cukup kita menghargainya dengan hanya mambacanya atau menghafalnya sahaja tanpa cuba untuk mengamalkannya dan menyampaikannya kepada insan lain? Let we muhasabbah ourself for a moment..

Kita tidak boleh sewenang-wenangnya memahami sesuatu ayat Al-Quran itu mengikut pemahaman kita sendiri. Rujukan kepada hadis, tafsir-tafsir ulama' amat perlu kita selidiki dan fahami agar mutiara sebenar yang mungkin tersembunyi daripada mata kasar kita selama ini dapat difahami dengan betul dan tepat. Hal ini seterusnya, mungkin akan membuka pintu hati kita untuk lebih menghargai dan mencintai Al-Quran itu sendiri. Allah amat menggalakkan hambaNya untuk berusaha mencari kebenaran, bahkan Dia akan memberi ganjaran kepada mereka yang telah dan akan berusaha mencarinya.

Antara kitab-kitab tafsir yang sangat bagus untuk kita sama-sama membacanya : 


1. Tafsir Ibn Jarir al-Thabari
2. Tafsir Ibn Katsir
3. Mukhtasarat Tafsir Ibn Katsir
4. Tafsir al-Qurtubi
5. Tafsir al-Kasysyaf Karya al-Zamakhsyari
6. Tafsir al-Razi
7. Fath al-Qadir karya al-Syaukani
8. Tafsir Adhwa al-Bayan

Honestly, i am afraid to write like this because i am very worry that me myself do not practice it in my life. Because all the things we said, will be our responsible to fulfill it and try to practice it, because Allah will ask we in The Day of Judgement about it. MAY ALLAH GIVES HIS GUIDANCE TO US. INSYAALLAH.
