YANG TERBERKATI (THE CHOOSEN ONE)

1 hour 52 min ago

Allah maha pengasih lagi maha penyayang, Tiada yang patut di sembah selain Dia
Di segala arah di segala penjuru hanya Dia tempat engkau menghadap…Dia yang maha tahu dan maha memberitahu kepada ciptaan-Nya. Tidak ada yang serupa atau menyerupai Dia. Dialah yang berbeda, Dialah yang maha membedakan.
Dialah yang tunggal dan yang berdiri sendiri, tidak beranak dan juga tidak di peranakan. Dialah yang maha kuat, menjaga dan memelihara alam dan ciptaan-Nya terus menerus. Dialah yang maha menciptakan, segala ciptaanya yang terlihat dan yang tidak terlihat,yang di beritahu dan yang dirahasiakan, yang tersembunyi dan yang keluar, Dialah Allah Tuhan semesta alam…alam manusia, dan alam-alam yang lain yang belum atau tidak bisa dijangkau manusia serta tidak bisa di jangkau akal pikiran manusia.

ALLAHULAILLAHA ILLA HUAL KHOYYUL QHOYYUM
Apabila seorang hamba Allah mengalami kesulitan hidup, maka pertama-tama ia mencoba mengatasinya dengan upayanya sendiri. Bila gagal ia mencari pertolongan kepada sesamanya, khususnya kepada raja, penguasa, hartawan. Atau bila dia sakit, maka ia akan pergi kepada dokter. Bila hal ini pun gagal, maka ia berpaling kepada Khaliqnya, Tuhan Yang Maha Besar lagi Maha Kuasa, dan berdo’a kepada-Nya dengan kerendahan hati dan pujian yang di sukai Nya. Bila ia mampu mengatasinya sendiri, maka ia tak akan berpaling kepada sesamanya, demikian pula bila ia berhasil karena sesamanya, maka ia tak akan berpaling kepada sang Khaliq. Karena setiap kesembuhan hakekat nya bukan karena obat atau dokter namun karena kemurahan dari Allah SWT.

Kemudian bila tak juga memperoleh pertolongan dari Allah, maka dipasrahkannya dirinya kepada Allah, dan terus demikian, mengemis, berdo’a merendah diri, memuji, memohon dengan penuh harap, penuh kecemasan. Namun, Allah Yang Maha Besar dan Maha Kuasa membiarkan ia letih dalam berdo’a dan tak mengabulkannya, hingga ia sedemikian terkecewakan terhadap segala sarana duniawi. Maka kehendak-Nya mewujud melaluinya, dan hamba Allah ini berlalu dari segala sarana duniawi, segala aktivitas dan upaya duniawi, dan bertumpu pada ruhaninya.

Pada peringkat ini, tiada terlihat olehnya, selain kehendak Allah Yang Maha Besar lagi Maha Kuasa, dan sampailah dia kepada pengetahuan tentang Keesaan Allah, pada peringkat haqqul yaqin (yaitu  tingkat keyakinan tertinggi yang diperoleh setelah menyaksikan dengan mata kepala dan mata hati). Bahwa pada hakikatnya, tiada yang melakukan segala sesuatu kecuali Allah. Tak ada penggerak tak pula penghenti, selain Dia, tak ada kebaikan, kejahatan, tak pula kerugian dan keuntungan, tiada faedah, tiada memberi tiada pula menahan, tiada awal, tiada akhir, tak ada kehidupan dan kematian, tiada kemuliaan dan kehinaan, tak ada kelimpahan dan kemiskinan, kecuali karena ALLAH SWT.

Maka di hadapan Allah, ia bagai bayi di tangan perawat, bagai mayat dimandikan, dan bagai bola di tongkat pemain polo, berputar dan bergulir dari keadaan ke keadaan, dan ia merasa tak berdaya. Dengan demikian, ia lepas dari dirinya sendiri, dan melebur dalam kehendak Allah. Maka tak dilihatnya kecuali Tuhannya dan kehendak-Nya, tak didengar dan tak dipahaminya, kecuali Ia. Jika melihat sesuatu, maka sesuatu itu adalah kehendak-Nya; bila ia mendengar atau mengetahui sesuatu, maka ia mendengar firman-Nya, dan mengetahui lewat ilmu-Nya. Maka terkaruniailah dia dengan karunia-Nya, dan beruntung lewat kedekatan dengan-Nya, dan melalui kedekatan ini, ia menjadi mulia, ridha, bahagia, dan puas dengan janji-Nya, dan bertumpu pada firman-Nya. Ia merasa enggan dan menolak segala selain Allah, ia rindu dan senantiasa mengingat-Nya; makin mantaplah keyakinannya pada-Nya, Yang Maha Besar lagi Maha Kuasa. Ia bertumpu pada-Nya, memperoleh petunjuk dari-Nya, berbusana nur ilmu-Nya, dan termuliakan oleh ilmu-Nya. Yang didengar dan diingatnya adalah dari-Nya. Maka segala syukur, puji, dan sembah tertuju kepada-Nya.

Bila kamu abaikan ciptaan, maka “Semoga Allah merahmatimu”
Allah melepaskanmu dari kedirian, “Semoga Allah merahmatimu,”
Ia mematikan kehendakmu, “Semoga Allah merahmatimu,” maka Allah mendapatkanmu dalam kehidupan yang Baru.

Kini kau terkaruniai kehidupan abadi, diperkaya dengan kekayaan abadi, dikaruniai kemudahan dan kebahagiaan nan abadi, dirahmati, dilimpahi ilmu yang tak kenal kejahilan, dilindungi dari ketakutan, dimuliakan, hingga tak terhina lagi, senantiasa terdekatkan kepada Allah, senantiasa termuliakan, senantiasa tersucikan, maka menjadilah kau pemenuh segala harapan, dan ibaan pinta orang mewujud pada dirimu, hingga kau sedemikian termuliakan, unik, dan tiada tara, tersembunyi dan terahasiakan.

Maka, kau menjadi pengganti para Rasul, para Nabi dan para shiddiq. Kaulah puncak wilayat, dan para wali yang masih hidup akan mengerumunimu. Segala kesulitan terpecahkan melaluimu, dan sawah ladang terpaneni melalui do’amu; dan sirnalah melalui do’amu, segala petaka yang menimpa orang-orang di desa terpencil pun, para penguasa dan yang dikuasai, para pemimpin dan para pengikut, dan semua ciptaan. Dengan demikian kau menjadi agen polisi (kalau boleh disebut begitu) bagi kota-kota dan masyarakat.

Orang-orang bergegas-gegas mendatangimu, membawa bingkisan dan hadiah, dan mengabdi kepadamu, dalam segala kehidupan, dengan izin sang Pencipta segalanya. Lidah mereka senantiasa sibuk dengan doa dan syukur bagimu, di manapun mereka berada. Tiada dua orang Mukmin berselisih tentangmu. Duhai, yang terbaik di antara penghuni bumi, inilah rahmat Allah, dan Allahlah Pemilik segala rahmat.

Women in Islam : Culture of Abaya 

2 hours 11 min ago

“Abaya. A woman in abaya in Islam is often considered to be the epitome of pure radiance, power and dignity. People often think that if a woman chooses to wear an abaya over a dress that shows her body then she is somehow oppressed in Islam. It’s not true, infact if a woman chooses the abaya over a dress that flatters her body, it means that she is maybe trying to dwell more closer to her lord and more closer to her religion. Abaya is beautiful. Islam is beautiful. People don’t realise that a woman in an abaya or a headscarf can be far more open minded, tolerant, have a heart of gold filled with love and admiration for others and liberal as well in her own ways that follows the religion instead. I’ve gone through many ups and downs in life and I’ve removed my hijab many times but this is the most peaceful I ever feel. When I’m closer to my lord.” 

Women in Islam are beautiful.

Things Are Not Always Black and White in Some Issues

3 hours 7 min ago

A scholar of the past was passing by some Mongols and they were drinking alcohol. He didn’t say anything to them! So, his companions asked him about this and he replied that this drinking alcohol is haraam but it is busying them from harming the Muslims!

Things are not clear cut in many things and require people with knowledge and wisdom to talk about these issues and not just anyone who sees Verses of the Qur’an and just interpret it themselves.

His plan

Wed, 03/22/2017 - 21:35

“Sometimes really annoying things happen to you. Really annoying things! And you get stuck in the traffic in your way to Arabic class… 45 minutes late. You’re upset.
Kind of … Is that part of Allah’s plan?
Yes! Coz you need to learn Sabr (patience) more than you need to learn Arabic some days. So He is gonna teach it to you. And if that means He has to make you loose your keys, He’ll make you loose your keys. It is part of His plan coz it is heping you to control your temper he is helping you to learn to rely on him.
Sometimes he makes you pass a test, sometimes he makes you fail the test so you learn to understand where success and failure come from.”

Agnostic Muslim

Wed, 03/22/2017 - 21:10

16 years ago, I was born to a Muslim family in a Muslim country. Before I could even open my eyes, my faith was decided for me, and my ears were filled with the words of God.

As I grew up, Islamic values were embedded upon me. It was nothing violent at all, they didn’t teach me to hate other religious groups, they just taught me the 5 daily prayers and how to read the Quran and other similar things. I grew up believing that if I didn’t pray 5 times a day, God would be very upset with me and would put me in Hell.
Ever since I was little, I had always believed that men and women were equal. No one told me that. No one instilled that in me. I just always knew, and rebelled against the patriarchy since day one. It was for small issues, like, “Girls can be [physically] strong too!” “Boys can like the color pink as well!” But I had always fought against sexism. And as I grew into a teenager and became more aware about the severity of sexism in the world, I fought it more. And I never saw anything wrong with it, it’s common sense, right?
Wrong.

As I started voicing my opinion in my classes when teachers displayed sexism, I got dirty looks. And more often than not, I was lectured about it on the basis of Islam. “Islam says men are superior to women.” I was always told. And that, I guess, played the first role in the flickering of my faith.
The second role was the sense of superiority Muslims felt to other religions. “We are better than them.” They would say, “They follow the wrong religion, we are blessed to have been born in a Muslim family.” I will not lie, almost every follower of any religion given has a sense of superiority and believes their religion is the right one. However, they try to hide it. Or they are nice about it. Muslims? It’s very, very blatant.

I started studying Islam more, and I don’t know what happened but one night I saw an Islamic picture and I just burst into tears and started asking God for forgiveness. The very next day, I became the most Islamic I had ever been. It was my most evangelical point. I left so many things precious to me, because Islam said they were bad. Music, my crush, my guy friends…I gave it all up, because God said to. That point lasted for a few months until I eventually relapsed back into listening to music, followed by talking to my guy friends again, and flirting with my crush once more. I was back on square one. I stopped wearing the hijab I had don on during the past few months, I swore more and I just became a more ‘me’ version of myself.

Last year, I started studying Islam in school. It’s a mandatory subject. Prior to me studying it in school, I disagreed with a lot of what Islam had to say but I thought it was because I didn’t understand it. However as we studied it in school and I was given the explanations, I started disagreeing more and more. I had become agnostic but I was afraid to admit it to myself and convinced myself that my teacher wasn’t a scholar and therefore not very good at explaining what the religion meant, since all my life I’d heard that unbelievers would go to hell. At one point I became very agnostic and my close friends knew about it. I absolutely hated everything that Islam had to say. I hated the Muslim community [and I still do], I hated how everyone tried to force me to live in Islamic ways. I couldn’t tell anyone else I was agnostic though, because that is punishable by death, so I just suffered in silence. Then one day, I read a nicely detailed and positive interpretation of one of the parts of the Quran I always had a problem with, and it brought a flicker of doubt in me. Did I really disagree with Islam, or did I just not understand Islam? 
I started reading more like interpretations of other verses I had problems with, ones that made a whole lot more sense and were more positive, and that flicker of doubt changed into a fire of doubt. It turns out men aren’t created superior to women after all.

I became more and more confused to what I believed in, and I started reading the Quran on my own, although I doubt that I will be able to interpret its true meaning. The Quran is a book in which every single placement of every small thing matters. Change one letter, and you’ll change the whole meaning. The Quran requires deep study and Islamic knowledge in order to unlock it’s true meaning, and most people just don’t read the book that way. The very few who do are not able to express the art behind each verse. People just interpret it however they want, and that version gets popular and people end up believing false information. But since it gets perpetuated for so long, no one even questions it. As for the agnosticism, Islam usually gives reasons for the doings of God [e.g.: “When a person finds himself constantly surrounded by problems, God really loves them.”] but agnosticism does not. I am bitter towards God for some personal reasons, and the way Islam gave me answers to some questions just wasn’t satisfactory. How could He love me if He threw so many problems upon me? With agnosticism, I can believe that God works in mysterious, unknown ways that I cannot comprehend, therefore I cannot be bitter.

So here I am now, too Muslim for the agnostic community and too Muslim for the atheist community. I am still absolutely confused to what I believe in. If you asked me if I was a Muslim, I would say yes. But at the same time, if you asked me if I was agnostic, I would say yes. Islam is a religion of peace and gender equity, not the horrible religion you see being used as a basis for terrorism. Take it from an ex-Muslim (sort of), Islam is not violent. If there were any parts of Islam that I found morally wrong, I would tell you. Like that one nation God destroyed because they were homosexuals. But that arises questions in me, too–did God really destroy them just because they were homosexuals, or because they were practicing idol worshiping and adultery among other bad things, too?
I have yet to figure out my faith, and I hope I figure it out soon so I can gain some peace of mind.

Make Your Creator Happy not Creation

Wed, 03/22/2017 - 09:19

There’s a rule in world,  when a man expects something from someone then he also fears that person and if one expects something in return then one tries to make the person (from whom there is expectation) happy. A shopkeeper makes every effort to make the customer happy. People of Iman were taught through the Ambiya Alayhimusalaam that man has to return to Allah and will be examined for his life (how he spent his life) and then he will be rewarded (accordingly). When this is the worry of a man (being examined after death and rewarded accordingly) it is then that he strives to ensure he does not make Allah unhappy and this is peity(Taqwa).

Imanku bernama Ketakutan

Wed, 03/22/2017 - 08:37

Kebenaran agama saat ini lebih banyak ‘dibuktikan’ ketakutan.

Advokasi oleh akal di hadapan pengadilan realitas mulai miskin proyek. Ketakutan menyuap realita sampai pelaku pemikiran sehingga tak berani menuntut kebebasannya.

///

Tidak ada satupun dari kita yang sanggup memilih keluarga tempat dilahirkan. Dan ketika sudah terjadi, semua sudut pandang pikiran akan ditentukan tempat kita dibesarkan. Agama, menjadi salah satu budaya doktrin turun-temurum yang sangat populer sejak berabad-abad lalu.

Lewat agama, kita hanya mengenal dua wajah tuhan: kejam dan lembut–atau sinonim-sinonimnya. Adakah wajah lainnya? Netral barangkali? Tapi bukankah ia tak ber-wajah?

Sejarah tak hanya mencatat pedang-pedang penaklukan yang menyuburkan agama, tapi narasi panasnya neraka dan tangan besi tuhan pun menjadi tonggak keberagamaan dunia.

Manusia menempuh jaman baru, peradaban dibilang maju, tapi agama masih pakai cara yang dulu.

Sejak jaman dimana manusia gelisah akan makna dan asal kehidupan. Pertanda-pertanda alamiah pun diolah seniman paling kreatif pada masanya menjadi tuhan-tuhan yang berprofesi. Banjir dari tuhan sungai. Panen dari tuhan kesuburan. Dan sekarang, kesusahan hidup dari tuhan yang cemburu.

Ketika para nabi menghadapi rakyatnya yang tak tahu apa itu tesis dan skripsi. Metafora-metafora emosional adalah satu-satunya cara memberadabkan mereka–setidaknya itu klaim tujuan dari agama. Ketakutan menjadi nahkoda agar manusia tetap pada kodratnya yang manusiawi. Boleh dikata strategi itu benar–periodik.

Kubangan emosional itu pun menjalar dalam waktu. Dan sampai kini, agama tetap benar dan tak boleh disalahkan.

Ketika bumi pun terjajah pengetahuan sampai ditelanjangi bulat-bulat, agama tetap digdaya dengan ceteknya pengetahuan atasnya.

Kita tertahan menikahi tuhan dengan mahar rasionalitas yang begitu cemerlang, sebab orang-orang masih takut pada wali tuhan yang memegang kunci neraka.

Akhirnya romansa tuhan dan manusia seperti kisah cinta tahun 80an. Dimana dua insan saling menghindar dan mengejar. Beragama jadi sebuah penghindaran neraka dan pengejaran surga. Meski pada kenyataannya, kemajuan pemikiran dunia membutuhkam dalil-dalil logis agar agama dapat dianggap cukup beken bergabung dalam geng.

///

Kemana jaman sains? Perkembangan peradaban rasanya terlalu jauh untuk umat beragama kekinian.

Pengetahuan takluk dihadapan ketakutan. Tak ayal, begitupun kemanusiaan. Sebab ketakutan yang dipelihara perlahan menggerogoti tubuhnya sendiri. Penindasan atas nama agama; politisasi agama; bahkan atas nama tuhan.

“Apakah mereka tak berpikir?” konon tuhan berkata.

Which Hand to Count Tasbih on?

Wed, 03/22/2017 - 07:15

The narration about the Prophet (saw) counting Tasbih on his right hand… [Reported by Abu Dawud]

The extra wording “his right hand” is weak as it was singularly narrated by Muhammad b. Qudāmah and he opposed the other Huffadh (reliable narrators) that narrated this hadith without the extra addition.

Based on this, a person can count his Tasbih on his right and left hand.

– Sh. Bakr Abu Zayd (r)

Do you really love JESUS and his mother VIRGIN MARY?

Wed, 03/22/2017 - 04:34

If your answer is “YES” then you must read this!

And (remember) when Allah will say (on the Day of Resurrection): “O Jesus (Isa), son of Mary (Maryam)! Did you say unto men: `Worship me and my mother as two gods besides Allah?”’

He (Jesus) will say: “Glory be to You! It was not for me to say what I had no right (to say). Had I said such a thing, You would surely have known it. You know what is in my inner self though I do not know what is in Yours, truly, You, only You, are the Knower of all that is hidden and unseen.”

“Never did I say to them aught except what You (Allah) did command me to say: `Worship Allah, my Lord and your Lord.’ And I was a witness over them while I dwelled amongst them, but when You took me up, You were the Watcher over them, and You are a Witness to all things.”

“If You punish them, they are Your servants, and if You forgive them, verily You, only You are the Almighty, the All-Wise.” [Al-Ma’idah 5:116-118]

My advice to you, my dearest reader, wake up before it is too late. Remove any prejudice, open your mind and open your heart. I assure you, you will be able to see The Straight Way and you will be able to attain that peace of mind you are longing for.

Believe in the existence of God and this God is only ONE. Allah is The Only One True God worthy of worship.

Accepting Allah as your God does not mean that you are leaving your faith in God. Your faith is still there, you just need to change your idea about God.

Accepting Allah as your God does not mean that you are leaving Jesus and Mary. In fact, you will discover about their true identity. You will love them as they should be loved. Jesus was only a human being; who came into existence by the word of God. He was one of the prophets and was one of the highest messengers of God.

To the people I love...❤

Tue, 03/21/2017 - 19:50

To the people I love:
What I wish most for you above all else, is to be content with getting close to God. Closeness to Him is a journey with many highs, and many more lows. But what I pray for you is that during the lows – you never quit.
You keep standing in prayer no matter how heavy it may seem to carry your sins, you stay in sujood a little longer no matter how hard it may be to keep your pride down, you raise your hands in prayer no matter how impossible the things you ask for may seem. I wish for you to always try, whether it’s an ounce or an ocean.
Above all else,
I pray that our inevitable meeting with our Lord happens at the best point of our journeys towards Him. And that someday on the other side we all meet past our sorrows and worries, and unite in gratitude over the fact that we never allowed them to stop us from coming closer to Him. I pray that we share that moment where it will all be worth it.
I pray for that moment to be enough
for you to hold on now,
and forever.

Before I met you, I used to think that all I needed was someone that makes me happy. someone that makes me smile,
someone that makes me laugh,
someone that makes me feel good.
But happiness is a temporary feeling, it comes and goes. Anyone can make you happy, anyone can make you smile, anyone can make you laugh, but very few people can truly understand you. Very few people can truly resonate with your soul and see deeper things than how they appear on the surface. Very few people see beyond, the smiles, the laughs and the goodness. Very few people understand that there is more to love than happiness. Maybe it’s not a case of being with someone who makes you happy, but being with someone who will be there for you even when you’re not.

I pray to Allah ‘Azzawajal to wake you up every single day. I pray for Him to protect you, to protect your heart and soul. I pray for Him to forgive our shortcomings. I pray to Him every day that you keep that beautiful smile of yours. I pray for Him to grant you sabr, peace and comfort until He accepts us in Jannah together. And if I ever have to die, I pray for Him to take me before He takes you from this world for I won’t be able to bear the pain of your absence.

Abu Sa’eed Al-Khudri (Radhi Allahu Anhu) reported:

The Messenger of Allah (Salla’Allaahu Alayhi wa Salam) said,

“Verily, those who love each other will look at their rooms in Paradise as if they were brilliant stars in the east or west. It will be said: Who are these? They will reply: These people loved each other for the sake of Allah the Exalted.”

Benefits of the Prescribed Daily Prayers (Salah)

Tue, 03/21/2017 - 08:39

What are the benefits of the five daily prayers (salah)? How does it benefit us in the afterlife as well as in this world?

Fourth Word (Part 1)

NOTE: The quoted passages are from Ustadh Bediuzzaman’s book and the commentaries below them are my own.

If you would like to completely understand – in the level of two times two equals four – how precious and crucial is prayer and how cheap [it is] and obtained with a low cost; and how feeble-minded and harmful is the prayerless man, look and see this short allegory:

Regarding the significance of the five daily prayers, the Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) described it as the “pillar of religion”. It is a gift which God bestowed upon believers during the miraculous journey, isra’ and mi’raj. So what benefit does one obtain from prayer and how is this a gift form our Merciful Creator?

  • First and foremost, Prayer brings us closer to God and becomes a path to paradise in the hereafter. This benefit is obvious and self explanatory. Muslims who neglect their prayers by setting a bad example to others and encouraging them to miss their prayers; they become harmful to their society and eventually to themselves in the afterlife.
  • Furthermore, the author also mentions some of the worldy benefits of prayer in some of his other books. So how does prayer benefit us in this world?
  1. Firstly, prayer brings a peace of mind. We’ve discussed this in depth in our previous post, explaining how worship in general leads to a peace of mind. Since prayer is a form of worship (in fact at the center of it, since it is the “pillar of religion”), we will not repeat the argument with all its details but simply provide a brief summary: Being in the presence of God and humbling ourselves before Him, we begin to feel our impotence and poverty and that of everything else besides God. This allows us to understand God and His attributes which in turn leads to a true peace of mind.
  2. In addition to providing a peace of mind, prayer plays a role in keeping the society well ordered and safe. Indeed, prayers are an invitation to God’s presence multiple times throughout the day. One who wholeheartedly performs these prayers constantly remembers their Lord and stays motivated to fulfill His commands. Since God commands that we must obey figures of authority, help the needy, avoid harming others, and so on; society greatly benefits form it. Furthermore, prayer requires and develops one’s discipline and other crucial practices. Muslims who neglect these prayers out of laziness, on the other hand, are more likely to cause harm to their society due to a lack of discipline and a lack of taqwa [avoiding sin].[1]

Below is a short story regarding the significance of prayer in a Muslim’s life. The next post will be an analysis of this story Insha’Allah.

One time, a great ruler sends two servants of his– giving each of them twenty four gold coins – to a two month away private and beautiful farm for [the purpose of] settlement. And orders them “pay your travel and ticket expenses with this money. Also, buy some necessary things for your house there. In a distance of a day, there is a station. A car, a ship, a train, and an airplane are found [there]. They are boarded depending on [one’s] capital.”

 

The two servants leave after taking their lesson. One of them was pleasant so that he spent a portion of money until [he reached] the station. However, within that spending he obtains such a beautiful business that will please his master, so that his capital rises from one to a thousand. Since the other servant is unfortunate and purposeless, he spends twenty three of his gold coins until [he arrives at] the station. He loses them, giving them to such things as gambling. [Only] a single gold coin of his is left. His friend tells him “Look here, give this Lira for a ticket. So that, in this long path, you will not be left on foot and hungrey. Also, our master is generous; maybe he will show mercy, [and] forgive the mistake you made. They will let you in the airplane as well. We will go to our place of residence in one day. Otherwise you will be forced to travel hungry, on foot, [and] alone in a two month desert.

 

If this man were to get stubborn and not give that single gold coin of his to a ticket which is equivalent to a treasure key and instead spends it for sinful entertainment for a temporary delight; wouldn’t even the most mindless man understand how very mindless, harmful, and unfortunate he is?

Two years on WordPress!

Tue, 03/21/2017 - 02:34

Yes, you got it right. Spot on. I survived for two prolonged years on WordPress.

You heard me, right?
And you heard me right!

Let’s get started with a Thank You as per the regulations say. A “Thank  You” note from the bottom of my heart to every soul that has ever read even a word of me. I honestly respect you for bearing and being with me all this long.

I would be really glad if I could mention all those names who have personally reviewed or commented on my blogs.
But, you have really nothing to do with all those. So, I won’t take much of your time. Right? Right it is then!

Honestly speaking, before writing this post I had made up my mind that this would be my last blog post and I’d bury this blog to an entirety.

But, as I progressed with paragraphs after paragraphs, I was stuck with the thought that there’s a lot more to be poured out of my mind and heart, for the world to witness.

I always craved for.three facts to writing that never stopped me from doing it:

  1. Writing is what angels do to whatever we do or think in each of the smallest of moments in our lives.
  2. Writing is what Prophet Muhammad did to Quran that has been creating differences in over 2 billion lives for over 1400 years now.
  3. And moreover, writing is what Allah has done to our Fate. Each moment, each breath.

So, how can writing be ordinary ever?

See, I totally understand that this thought would have never crossed your mind and heart, and at no point of time in this world, and at least not in this manner.

And there were a lot of other things I never said.

“When people talk about advancement of the world, their assortment is solely linked with that of the advancement of a nation. And when you look around the globe, the most prominent use of technology is mostly inflicted by nations against each other.”

I never said it. But, it’s all lingering in my brain.

Like, I never answered the question,

“Why Islam? Why not any other?”

I never said, “Islam compels and forces me to do the right and make others do the right thing and be of the righteous. Islam forces me to stay away from the evil deeds and stop others from doing it too.”

Allah orders us to do so. Or else He says He shall punish us for not doing these things in life. That’show important being a noble human being is to Allah.

But, what’s so strange about it? Right?

I had never seen in my a person of different religion than Islam going to a stranger of the same religion and telling him that we should be nice to people, be worthy human beings, stay away from sins.

If these things are not true as mentioned,

Then why hasn’t any other writer or blogger said the words of wisdom till date that overpowers or even matches any single verse of Quran?

Because Quran and Islam is not just a book and a code of conduct. It’s a way of living.

And just because your way of living accumulates in it activities like,

    • “walking on the streets with bare breasts exposing it for others to see and telling them not to look at you and be a man because this is what takes your feminism to a decree and this is what empowerment means to you, and moreover this is how you are comfortable with”,

Or

  • “walking on the streets checking out every girl, and her figure, her curves, and her exposed body parts and making up in your mind that she’s asking for it, instead of minding your own business and taking your manhood to an extreme level of respect for women for that’s exactly where you came from”,

Then, covering one’s body with hijab, or niqab, or abaya; and one’s body shape and face with loose attires and beard, can also be a part of one’s style of living.
And this very style of living is called “Sunnah” of Prophet Muhammad Sal’lal’lahu_alaihi_wa’sal’lam.
This is how he lived and taught his companions to live. And after they embraced this kind of living is when Allah gave them successes in this world and the world Hereafter.

I always had these things in my mind. I always wanted to write. Always. But, just not now.

And this assures that I am going to write and write and write until when every stroke of my pen or the keypad asks my permission to heal the pain within my fingers until I change my life and any single others’ along the way.

And for that to happen, I first have to reach a place where people would listen from.

So, I promise you today, years from now, I won’t be signing my books to gain affection from people, I would write a personal note to every single soul I’d touch with my book and I’ll raise them above the matters of life and death.
