Palestin dan lain-lain. (A reminder for me)

Assalamualaikum.

I've just got back from IMAN's program in which we broke fast together at FK[fakultas kedokteran](sempena 10 muharram, hari Asyura). Lepas iftor n solat Maghrib (kami solat di luar surau since ramai sangat yang datang, seronok jugak solat beratapkan langit) ada program Peduli Palestin. We had to go to one of the lecture halls at FK. Ramai sangat yang datang, melebihi dari yg bagi nama. Xpela.. Alhamdulillah ada kesedaran nak join..

Peduli Palestin. That's why I came. Because I care... We all know (or at least, people who aren't ignorant) that Palestine is being attacked brutally by the Zionis Regime (I do not say Israel, you'll learn why later) and hundreds of people have been killed and thousands more injured... I can't explain how saddened I am and how much hatred I feel for those heartless killers who dare to hurt my fellow muslims...My saudara...How everytime I read more and more horrific news about the situation in Gaza, I struggle to hold on to my tears. La Tahzan. That's what I keep telling myself. InsyaAllah mereka yang gugur di sana telah dihadiahkan syahid oleh Allah, so that gives me some solace. If you do not love your fellow muslims as much as you love yourself, the you are not one of them. Sesungguhnya setiap umat Islam itu bersaudara... Those are the words from the holy Al-Quran... Al-Quran itu merupakan kitab yang diturunkan oleh Allah kepada Muhammad SAW supaya menjadi panduan kepada umatnya, tapi sejauh mana kita mengikutinya?

My dear friends...
Apa yang telah kita lakukan untuk saudara-saudara kita di sana? Do we share their pain? Or we do them more harm than we are actually aware? How fortunate we are here, we live in harmony, with no fear of fighter jets dropping bombs off and harming us. But where do those bombs actually come from? From ourselves... We buy McDonalds, we buy Nestle products, we use Revlon, we just love going to STARBUCKS and all the other products in which the profits are used to fund their zest TO KILL OUR BROTHERS AND SISTERS. I say 'we' because I've also been a culprit of this. It has become some sort of culture, something that we rarely think about. I can't say that I didn't know about this, because I did. And then someone told me, "What can we do? It's just food for us, we've become so accustomed to it, it's not like we agree with what's happening in Palestine..There's nothing we can do except pray for them..." And me... being so blind, so ignorant, so stupid, agree.

How can that be? We pray for them, but at the same time do something that would harm them more? How is that justified? At that time I wasn't convinced, but I followed because it was EASY that way. We may say, "Nak buat mcm mana...sedap sangat la McD," or "Aku tak boleh hidup tanpa Starbucks lah!" But let's think people. Who, or what do you love more? 1.McDonalds; or 2.Allah? Doesn't really compare right? How can you compare some measly food with He who created everything in the first place? Of course Allah! But is that true? What have we done to prove it? Sejauh mana cinta kita padaNya kalau setakat nak meninggalkan nikmat dunia yang sikit sangat sangat pun tak mampu? Kalau betul kita pilih yang no.1(itu sekadar contoh), kita dah meletakkan sesuatu lebih atas dariNya. Maknanya kita dah menyekutukan Allah...!Nauzubillah. Sebenarnya banyak sangat contoh lain. If we just open up our eyes a little bit, we will see what we've done...

But at the same time kita baca dua kalimah syahadah....tapi kosong. Tu baru syahadah, belum yang lain lagi.....

Abg Fahmi said just now, and it's so true...(loose translation): There's more to Islam than just praying 5 times a day, fasting, menutup aurat etc. If you do not love your fellow Muslims, than YOU ARE NOT ONE OF THEM. Than what does that make us? Think.

How often we forget to refer back to one book that matters most: Al-Quran.
How often we get so carried away with life.
Betapa kotornya hati kita sampaikan bila orang nasihat atau bila hidayah ada depan mata, kita tak nampak, dengar; tapi, tak dengar...

There was a person, she used to cover her aurat, wore the tudung, but after a while, decided not to, 'testing 1 tahun', she said. After a year, her friend asked her, 'It's been a year, when are you going to wear your tudung again?' And she answered: 'Ada ke rukun Islam kata kena pakai tudung?Tak ada kan' Her friend couldn't say anything. She was shocked and speechless. She wanted to ask her friend, 'What is the rukun Iman?' She wanted to say, 'percaya kepada Al-Quran. That means following the teachings of the Quran. And in Al-Quran, it does state that a muslimah has to cover her aurat...' But she had no strength to say that to her friend... and she kept quiet and prayed her friend would soon find her way...

No one is perfect. No one. People make mistakes, we are not maksum like our beloved Prophet Muhammad. But when we don't even feel bad, remorse or guilty when we err, something's not right. When we so freely break the RULES without even thinking about it, something's not right.

Hidayah takkan datang bergolek tanpa kita berusaha, hidayah harus dicari, baru akan dijumpai.

I'm not the best Muslim in the universe. I have my faults. I'm not perfect.

But we have to help each other out. We cannot say, 'Aku pn banyak buat salah, macam mane nak tegur orang lain? Tak layak...' and we also cannot say, 'Alah, ingat dia baik sangat nak nasihat aku, dia pun sama banyak buat dosa.' Kalau tak sampai bila2 still tak ada perubahan. Kata dah menyambut tahun baru...Sama2 kena ingatkan. And at the same time, we remind ourselves. Even if it's the smallest good thing you've done, you will be rewarded by Him.

Fuh. Rasanya dah panjang sangat kot? Huhu.

So the moral of the story is (cehh)
If we follow Al-Quran to the best of our ability, we will succeed.
I've said before that change is the hardest thing in the world.
But...


It's not impossible.


*peace*

Reminder for the soul

“Aku hairan dengan orang yang mengetahui kematian, tapi mengapa ia masih tertawa;

Aku hairan dengan orang yang tahu bahawa dunia adalah sementara, tapi mengapa ia sangat mencintainya;

Aku hairan dengan orang yang mengetahui semua urusan telah ditakdirkan, tapi mengapa ia takut kehilangan;

Aku hairan dengan orang yang mengetahui bahwa hisab adalah suatu kepastian, tapi mengapa ia tetap mengum
pulkan harta dan menghitung-hitungnya;

Aku hairan dengan orang yang mengetahui panasnya api neraka, tapi mengapa ia tetap berbuat dosa;

Aku hairan dengan orang yang mengaku mengenal Allah, tapi mengapa ia meminta tolong kepada selain-Nya;

Aku hairan kepada orang yang mengaku mengetahui kenikmatan syurga, tapi mengapa ia merasa hidup tenang di dunia;

Dan aku hairan kepada orang yang mengetahui syaitan adalah musuhnya, tapi mengapa ia mentaatinya.”

Uthman bin Affan Radhiyallahu anhu
