Jalan Kehidupan

Kita selalu mempunyai pandangan yang berbeza dalam kehidupan. Sehinggakan hanya tentang tujuan penghidupan manusia juga kita berbeza.

Begitu juga dalam memberi jawapan tentang persoalan : Bagaimanakah cara kita menjalani kehidupan?

Ada yang melihat jalan akhirat sebagai jalan menuju akhirat. Seperti mewakafkan diri sepenuhnya pada jalan dakwah demi menegakkan syiar islam. Siang dan malam berdedikasi dalam usaha meneruskan perjuangan Rasulullah saw.

Ada juga yang melihat jalan dunia sebagai jalan menuju akhirat. Seperti bekerja sebagai seorang guru, pensyarah, doktor, ahli politik dll dan menjadikan matlamatnya pada pekerjaan itu adalah untuk mencapai agama, mengembangkan agama.

Ada sebahagian yang lain pula, menjalankan kehidupan seperti insan-insan biasa. Bekerja, berkahwin, makan dan minum, dan kehidupan itu dijalani dengan syariat islam kebanyakkannya. Segala kewajipan dan fardhu ain juga dilaksanakan. Dan sekadar itu saja.

3 golongan ini, mereka semua muslim. Yang mana satu anda?

Heal him, dear Lord!

Up until now, the closest man in my life is my dad. And he is the best dad I have ever met. I love every single second that we've spent together, sometimes with the whole family sometimes only both of us, perhaps in the car where he comes to fetch me up or during the jog that we have always done together or sometimes, simply in our family islamic-circle during the interval of Maghrib and Isya' or after Subuh.

I like him as he always has words of console. I like my dad because we always share the same thoughts on a matter. Or maybe at the first we aren't but then he would give his rational and I would agree to it.
We discuss, we chat, we talk. And I savour that time the most. 
He always listen to whatever his kids are trying to say.
And he treats us, always treats us very nicely.

I know him as a man of tolerance. His gentle to his kids. Sometime saying sorry and thank you, even sometimes we (his kids) know that it is not his fault. We know, a man like him will always busy with his work.

And I like the way he treat my mum as his wife. It sometimes shows the love that they posses.

He, my dad always has a way of teaching and educating his children. He doesn't scold or hit, but the way he talk always has an urge upon us to listen to what he is teaching us to do. 

i LOVE him because he is my dad. And I pray to Allah, please  heal him from his ailment. Because I love him, my mom loves him - we (the whole family) love him. 

Syafakallah, ya Abi. Syafakallah.

The amazing superwomen

If I were to choose who are the most amazing human in the entire world, I would say,
They are MOMS!

I don't think I need to tell you what they've done for us. They've done everything for us (their kids). Even if we are assigned to write it all down, the list will go on and on without stopping.

Thinking of moms, I just think they are amazing. I am referring to my mom, my female teachers (who are moms for their own children) and any other moms in this world.

Especially amazing, if moms have their own careers at the same time they need to be moms, wives and workers.
I just don't know how they work. They manage to attend all things unexceptionally as good as men or sometimes more. They are details, industrious and patient. They neglect the pains they feel, the tiredness that hunts and they sacrifice their times and energy for someone else.

..for someone else. Love is a miracle.

I just think how amazing Allah's works on moms! Subhanallah!

I don't even know I could even be like my mom. She is nice to talk with, pretty much understanding and have good instinct at knowing what her kids are currently feeling. She gives good advice and know how to tolerate.

She wills to put herself aside for the sake of her family and sometimes her works.

That's how all moms do things, don't they?

Is Islam merely a way of life?


The question is, really? Is Islam merely a way of life?
I would say, Nope.

Islam adalah perjuangan. Kehidupan kita berasaskan Islam sebagai syariat. Matlamat kita adalah Allah. Kepada Allah kita letakkan segala arah tujuan, matlamat dan impian.  Islam bukan semata-mata cara kita hidup tetapi, kehidupan itu sendiri memerlukan kita, orang-orang muslim, menegakkan agama ini. Kalau bukan kita siapa lagi?

Sampai bila kita hanya mampu menanti terbentuknya suatu masyarakat/kerajaan/dunia Islam yang benar-benar muslim? Di manakah usaha kita? Tidak mungkin kita mahu katakana, cukuplah kita menunggu.

Menunggu dan melihat perjuangan mereka-mereka yang berjuang.

Hidup kita penuh dengan impian dan matlamat. Maka, perlulah kita menjadikan matlamat-matlamat itu sebagai jalan untuk menuju Allah, ataupun menghasratkan matlamat-matlamat itu sebagai bantuan untuk meenegakkan Islam.

Islam perlu dizahirkan. Bukan semata-mata pada lisan dan ilmu yang disampaikan. Malahan akhlak dan pemikiran. Corak akal fikiran, lintasa hati, pembacaan, hiburan - semuanya menunjukkan betapa Islamnya kita.

Taqwa.

Islam bukan sekadar halal atau haram. Tetapi ia juga berkaitan dengan taqwa. Taqwa dapat dilihat dari kehidupan, adakah perkara-perkara syubhah dihindari atau dipandang sambil lewa saja.

=> Islam memerlukan muslim yang muslimin, mukminin, dan muttaqin.
Mari kita berterusan membaiki diri! 
Menuju Tuhan, untuk Islam.

Future, it scares me.

When I go surfing the net, or have a good, nice talk with dad or mom or teachers or do my readings, it just that I know that the real life is out there is far more dangerous than I know it is. It's more about my veils and clothes or my prays or deeds, I know in the real world out there I will be questioned about my aqidah from various types of people who claim to know Islam, but definitely the different way I thought it is. Yes, I am talking about the sufism, tareekah, shi'ite, feminism, secularism atheism etc.Even when it comes to Ahli Sunnah wal Jamaah, I know there's always the khalaf and salaf, who some of them always claim to be more righteous than the others.

And when it comes about da'wah, there's some people who thing da'wah is always about sacrificing every thing of own including schools and studying, while some people think it is enough to talk good and close to everybody as it is a form of da'wah (as being claimed by that people) -  thought it doesn't seem to have much impact; but at least better doing something than nothing.

Sometimes, we really get confuse of what really is. Everything usually has its contradict point. And the headache comes when both party claim to be rightful and saying that other party is wrong. Then, we don't know what to choose.

Ironically, sometimes, even when talking about a simple thing like clothing; thousands of people understand it in thousands ways, though that thousands of people are referring themselves as people who know what Islam is.
Well, I guess I take that up as a khilaf, though I still need to understand what is the preference of the Quran and Hadith and take that up as my strongly-held stance.

I would love to be out of the school as soon as possible, though I know I will miss my school days so much. But the thought of meeting different types of people who have different types of faiths and stances, yet they are trying to get people pulled into their views, is something that somehow scared me every now and then. Because the fact that I know I haven't yet equipped myself with vast of knowledge to have a debate or simply a talk with them who argued about my faith.

Now, I'm going to say this phrase to myself : I have yet a long, long way to go. Mada mada dane.

Sometimes, I wonder with great excitement of how my life would be in the future. =)

But I still pray, as it scares me too sometimes, that, Please dear Allah, take care of my aqidah.

Out of the school, to the universities (slightly almost the real world) , then to the real, real world.

May Allah protects us from evils from within ourselves and the world.
