“Apa rukun2 Iman?”

___________

I replied,

“Beriman kpd Allah swt,

Beriman kdp kitab2 Allah,

Beriman kpd para rasul alayhimussalam,

Beriman kpd para malaikat,

Beriman kpd hari Qiyamat,

Beriman kpd Qada’ dan Qadar Allah.” 

and then i asked, “Why Daddy?”

without answering he spoke again,

“Okay let me just ask you, in this life what do u seek for?”

“Redha Allah,” was my answer,

“Tp Allah bila cipta kita mmg dah redha,” came the immediate reply, and he went on again,

“I mean talking abt this life here and now.. what u seek for is happiness, contentment, kaya hati.. yg bukan dpt jumpa dlm harta yg bnyk. Allah sent u to this world for such appointed time, and to survive this world jadi org yg berjaya kena ada iman. thats why i asked u apa rukun2 iman. its your principles in life, your guide. satu org yg bnyk bersabar, tu pun  tanda iman.”

and i said quietly in my heart, “..Yes daddy, thats why to work on our Iman is so critical..”

And I made du’a,

O Allah, grant my parents Your endless mercy and blessings as You are Most Merciful, and grant them your forgiveness as You are Most Forgiving.. jadikanlan mereka di kalangan org yang beriman kpdmu dgn iman yg sahih, beramal kpdmu dgn amal yg soleh, make them a pious leader for us and make us a shafaat for them in their times in need. How You have decreed for us to be in a family in this world then please unite us again in Your Jannah, we have no strength to do good except with Your help, O Allah.. and with Your Strength, nothing is impossible. You are The Almighty, The One God, none other but You, O Allah. Ameen Ya Rabbal Alameen..

 This is just some random conversation that popped in the morning air, but nonetheless big deal to me.

because coming from daddy its such an eye opener..

Bismillah.

The ummah once again finds itself in the midst of a crisis.  Such a period such an era perhaps unprecedented, a time and an era wherein the oppressed cannot be called a victim wherein the tyrant cannot be called an oppressor. Wherein actions are justified and reactions are criticized. Where the murderer knows not why he is murdering, the murdered knows not why he is being murdered. A time when the voices of truth are suppressed and the truthful ones are marginalized, when lies and falsehood are being promoted. And in the midst of this crisis, in the midst of this challenge that is stalling on this ummah, that is straining on the ummah, the challenges of the preservation of Iman are intensifying. Hence the Quran says:

“Indeed Allah tested the nations that preceded you so Allah could make known those that were sincere and Allah could expose those that were liars.”

And hence the current happenings also makes it known to us that the challenge and the test that is coming upon the ummah, that is straining upon the ummah; safely we can say you and I are living in the time of which our pious predecessors had asked Allah’s protection against.

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam said;

“O Allah let me not live up to see an era where Divine guidance is ignored, Allah let me not see an era where shamelessness becomes the odour of the day.”

Brothers and sisters, you and i have found ourselves in the midst of the era. The only thing from which we can take solace is that what is to come is worse than what we are experiencing.

Hadhrat Muawiyah radhiallahu anhu said;

“What we consider noble in our time was considered a sin in the previous times, And what we consider a vice, a sin and transgression today, rest assured in the years to come this will be considered pious and noble.”

and to Him is our return.

Bismillah.

Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi Raaji’oon.

Yeah, sure we say this statement when someone dies. Also some of us may say this sentence when they lose something, suffer a setback or harm.  But……do you know what it means? Sure, everyone know that it obviously means ‘To Allah we belong and to Him is our return.’

But that’s not what I am talking about.

I mean … do you really, truly understand these words and their implications in a Muslim’s life?

It means …whatever we have is not really ours. It belongs to Allah.

Take a look around you; everything you see, all that you have and all that there is…in you, on you, around you…belongs to Allah, alone. It is Allah Who has given you all the property and goods you possess, and that He is the true Owner of them all.

So the cars that you own, the houses that you live in, the businesses you possess all truly belong to Allah. The kids that He blessed you with, the health that He gave you, the time that He has allowed you are all Allah’s properties. Even the bodies we live in and the life that we have belongs to Allah alone.

“And to Allah belongs the inheritance of the heavens and the earth…”

(Surah al-Imran:180)

“The kingdom of the heavens and the earth and everything in them belongs to Allah. He has power over all things.”

(Surah al-Ma’ida:120)

“Say: ‘To Allah belongs the East and the West…”

(Surah al-Baqarah:142)

Now, since everything belongs to Allah, then we have to include even our souls in that list.

The very souls that we think of as our “self”; our “nafs”; our “being” – whatever you want to call it – that very thing that distinguishes you from the rest of the world, belongs to Allah. It’s not YOURS.

In fact, YOU are not YOURS.
You belong to Allah.

And this is the essence of the concept of submission to Allah in Islam.

And since He is the true Possessor of everything, and everything is His property, He allots what He wills to whomever He wills. And then He takes it away. After all, it was Allah’s to begin with.

So He may give you something and then take it back after a while. He will bless you with a precious child that you love dearly…and then He may take it away. He will grant you money, honour and status…and then He may take it away. He will give you youth, vitality and health and then surely He will take it away.

In fact everything you have will only be with you for a very short while.
And then the Owner will claim His Right.

So when Allah does reclaim what was rightfully His, Why mourne our losses?

Just like a friend who lends you his book. And then after a few days, he wants it back and you give it back to him…no regrets, no sorrow, no question asked.

Similarly, if Allah takes back some of His blessings upon you for some reason…so be it.

Say Alhamdulillah.

Don’t grieve.

Be patient.

Submit to the will of Allah, being pleased with His decision for you. For surely He will only do what is best for you. Just think…The Owner came and took it back.

Remember, that you’re not the real owner. You were NEVER the real owner to begin with. You only had everything because it was Allah Who gave it to you in the first place. If He didn’t give it to you, you wouldn’t have had it in any way…in fact, you couldn’t have had it.

Remember, man enters into this world empty handed…and leaves it empty handed.

Remember, that everything we have, all the blessings we enjoy, are gifts from Almighty Allah…gifts that we enjoy for a limited period until He takes them away whenever He deems fit.

They are a trust from Allah…a loan to you…to see how you respond to these gifts from Allah and how you use them in the obedience of the Almighty, thanking Him and worshiping Him, OR…to the disobedience to the One Who gave them to you in the first place.

Take note of the words of the Prophet (Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) on the occasion of the death of his son, Ibraaheem:

“Our eyes are filled with tears, our hearts with grief, but we say nothing with our lips except that which pleases Allaah…. Verily, to Allaah we belong, and to Him we return.” (Bukhari)

And we all know the famous incidence about the companion Abu Talha and his wife when one of the sons died and Abu Talha was not at home. She washed and shrouded him and when Abu Talha came home and asked about his son, she said,

“The child is quiet and I hope he is in peace….” (Bukhari)

SubhaanAllah….such patience!

And such Iman in the statement “Inna lillaahi wa inna ilayhi Raaji’oon”!

She truly understood its meaning and the effect it should have on her life as a Muslimah, submitting to him and being pleased with whatever He has decreed for her. She knew that whatever she has, is not truly hers. Rather, it is Allah’s. And He took back whatever He owns at its appointed time.

And it is because of this Iman so strong, this understanding, that the Prophet (Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) made du’aa for them and Allaah blessed them immensely.
” They (i.e. Abu Talha and his wife) had nine sons and all of them became reciters of the Qur’aan (by heart).” (Bukhari)

” Be sure we will test you with something of fear and hunger, some loss in goods or lives, but give glad tidings to those who are steadfast, who say when afflicted with calamity: ‘To Allah we belong and to Him is our return.’ They are those on who (descend) blessings from Allaah and mercy and they are the ones that receive guidance.”

(Surah al-Baqarah: 155)

isn’t what this blog is all about.

Bismillah.

For I do not wish to be known, not to the world out there.

And I do not matter, not more that those that matters.

But as long as life subsists, I’ll keep on going, and giving..

as much as what I am receiving.

InshaAllah.

They knew You, and they knew me.

But what they did not know is what is between You and me.
