Soalan Yang Dijawab Dengan Penampar


Ada seorang pemuda yang lama belajar di luar negeri kembali ke tanahair dengan angkuh dan sombong. Di dalam benak kepalanya telah lama tersimpan 3 pertanyaan yang dianggapnya tiada siapa yang boleh menjawab. Satu hari beliau bertemu seorang imam tua di kampungnya..

Pemuda : Anda siapa Dan apakah dapat menjawab pertanyaan-pertanyaan saya?

Imam : Saya hamba Allah dan dengan izin-Nya saya akan menjawab pertanyaan anda.

Pemuda : Anda yakin? Sedangkan Profesor dan ramai orang yang pintar tidak mampu menjawab pertanyaan saya.

Imam : Saya akan mencuba sejauh kemampuan saya.

Pemuda : Saya ada 3 pertanyaan:

1.Kalau memang Tuhan itu ada,tunjukan wujud tuhan kepada saya

2.Apakah yang dinamakan takdir

3.Kalau syaitan diciptakan dari api kenapa dimasukan ke neraka yang dibuat dari api,tentu tidak menyakitkan buat syaitan. Sebab mereka memiliki unsur yang sama.Apakah Tuhan tidak pernah berfikir sejauh itu?

Tiba-tiba Imam tersebut menampar pipi pemuda tadi dengan keras.

Pemuda : Kenapa anda marah kepada saya? (sambil menahan sakit)

Imam : Saya tidak marah. Tamparan itu adalah jawaban saya atas 3 pertanyaan yang anda ajukan kepada saya.

Pemuda : Saya sungguh-sungguh tidak mengerti.

Imam : Bagaimana rasanya tamparan saya?

Pemuda : Tentu saja saya merasakan sakit.

Imam : Jadi anda percaya bahawa sakit itu ada?

Pemuda : Ya!

Imam : Tunjukan pada saya wujud sakit itu!

Pemuda : Saya tidak boleh.

Imam : Itulah jawaban pertanyaan pertama. Kita semua merasakan kewujudan Tuhan tanpa mampu melihat wujudnya.

Imam : Apakah tadi malam anda bermimpi akan ditampar oleh saya?

Pemuda : Tidak.

Imam : Apakah pernah terfikir oleh anda akan menerima tamparan dari saya hari ini?

Pemuda : Tidak.

Imam : Itulah yang dinamakan takdir.

Imam : Terbuat dari apa tangan yang saya gunakan untuk menampar anda?

Pemuda : Kulit.

Imam : Terbuat dari apa pipi anda?

Pemuda : Kulit.

Imam : Bagaimana rasanya tamparan saya?

Pemuda : Sakit.

Imam : Walaupun syaitan dijadikan dari api dan neraka juga terbuat dari api, jika Tuhan menghendaki maka neraka akan menjadi tempat yang menyakitkan untuk syaitan…

Wallahualam….

RAMADHAN DAY 11!



After hours and hours of fasting, it's normal for us fasting Muslims to feel the hunger and thirst. And once the Adhan Maghrib is heard, the first thing you would do is to gulp down all the yummy food that's placed in front of you!

So here's one common mistake most of us do but fail to realise; which is food wastage. Most fasting people tend to think that they SHOULD eat alot for fasting after missing all the meals (breakfast, lunch, etc) but the fact is, your stomach can only consume little!

So what happens with the left over food on the table and on your plate?
You tend to throw them away in the garbage.

Ramadhan teaches us to be grateful, but very often our nafs' takes over. Every grain of food and every drop of water or any halal drink must be greatly appreciated. Wasting is the way of the devil!

"Indeed those who waste are the brothers of syaitan (devil). Verily syaitan was most ungrateful to his Rabb" (17:27).

So to avoid wastage of precious food, one should refrain from cooking too much or buying too much food from bazaars!
If possible, try to avoid those ridiculous Buffet "offers" from hotels and restaurants too. RM65++ (about USD21) for adults and RM35++ (USD11) for kids - SERIOUSLY? They're only ripping your money off!

RM3 to RM5 (USD0.95) would be sufficient for an iftar (if bought from bazaar). RM65++ worth of buffet could feed about 13 other stomachs! Wouldn't it be better to use that access amount of money to feed the orphans?

So for the next remaining days of Ramadhan, let's all try to be more careful when it comes to cooking or buying food for iftar, insyaAllah.

Thank you for reading . Peace with love :)

RAMADHAN DAY 10

“The first matter that the slave will be brought to account for on the Day of Judgment is the prayer. If it is sound, then the rest of his deeds will be sound. And if it is incomplete, then the rest of his deeds will be incomplete.” (Al-Tabarani)

Solat, or prayers in Islam is EXTREMELY, AWESOMELY important that it shapes a Muslim. It keeps us away from sins, as God has stated:
“Verily, the prayer keeps one from the great sins and evil deeds” (29:45) And by praying, God erases sins too!

“If a person had a stream outside his door and he bathed in it five times a day, do you think he would have any filth left on him?” The people said, “No filth would remain on him whatsoever.” The Prophet then said, “That is like the five daily prayers: God wipes away the sins by them.” (Bukhari and Muslim)

Personally, I find praying to be relaxing and magical. Tho' I'm not -very- kusyu' (improving, insyallah), I would always tell myself that when I'm praying, I am the closest to Allah. (In fact, when Muslims sujud/sujdah, they are the closest to Allah)

To those who have been praying for Allah, I wish you GOOD JOB and may Allah grant you with unlimited rewards and Paradise; Let's all improvise our solat! 

And to those who have not been praying very much or not at all, tell yourself that you gotta START NOW (Yes, now!), and Ramadhan is the perfect time to do it for devils are chained. Give yourself a little credit and a push! You are a Muslim after all!
And don't forget to seek Allah for forgiveness for all the salat and prayers you have missed. He surely listens  

"Say: O my Servants who have transgressed against their souls! Despair not of the Mercy of Allah: for Allah forgives all sins: for He is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.” [Sûrah al-Zumar: 53]

Let's all be better Muslims, AMIN.
