Ustaz Amin - Orang Yang Mengumpat

Salam, 
Bahas hadith, Dari Abu Hurairah, the bersabda Rasul SAW:
"Tahukah kamu apa itu mengumpat? Mereka menjawab, Allah dan Rasul lebih mengetahui.
Rasul berkata kamu menyebut apa yang dibenci saudaramu, dikatakan
apa pendapatmu jika aku berkata apa yang tepat tentang saudaraku? Jika benar
maka kamu telah mengatanya itulah mengumpat
dan jika tidak kamu memfitnahnya"

Ustaz Amin - Ubat Kesedihan







Menangis bukan kerana fitrah, ada ubatnya, ubat kesedihan. Rasa tertekan dengan hidup, tak tahu nak cari tolong mana,

Islam ajar untuk atasi kesedihan, supaya tak terus dalam kesedihan.



Akal

cari hikmah cari kejadian. Tak ada benda kebetulan. Ada kebaikan yang kita tak perasan. Harini kasut hilang, rupanya Allah nak bagi kasut baru lagi cantic. Kereta kena Tarik, rupanya Allah nak gantikan kereta lebih bagus. 

 Hati

ditanam dengan iman. Macamana? menterjemah kalimah illah. Tiada tuhan Melainkan Allah. 

 Illah itu 99 nama Allah yang kita kaji. Tiada yang membela selain Allah.Tiada yang memberi rezeki mmelain Allah, Tiada yang memberi kasih sayang melainkan Allah, tiada segala-galanya kerana Allah.
Jadi kalau ada masalah, perbaharui hati kita dengan kalimah illah (99 nama Allah).

Masukkan hati kita, hajat kita. Tiada yang memberi rezeki melainkan Allah. 

Ingatlah dengan mengingati allah hati akan menjadi tenang. 


Fizikal

baca al quran. 2 surah untuk ubat hati sedih. 

Surah Yasin (hati quran), dan Surah Kahf (malaikat turun membawa ketenangan). 

Stress sangat sebab Kahf panjang. Fokus kepada ayat 11 (ayat untuk runsing kata orang perubatan). Ulang banyak2. Susah nak tidur. 

Ubat lain, banyakkan doa. Doa biar specific. 

Solat banyak-banyak. Ada satu doa yang wajib dalam solat, dalam surah al faihah. “tunjukkan kami ke jalan yang lurus”.

How to be a better muslim

How to be a better muslim.

* this is short notes for myself after watching Nouman Ali Khan videos

1.   Worship
fajr prayer improved? set a goal. More and more. sleep early and wake up early. fajr, quran. change day, then year, then life. project to memorize quran in our heart.

2.    Knowledge.
how to grow my knowledge this year?
be educated muslim in islam. recommendation; study the sirah  of prophet once, different sources. take one at a time. again every year. life of prophet as inspiration. gives perspective and reflection.

makes substantiation gain of quran. try to memorize specific surah (this year), read it and understand the tafsir. focus on one thing, and get it right. understanding the surah. memorize and understanding is not separated. the more recited, the more we understand it.

at least 3- 4 dua's, study and memorize them and make it a part of your life. (Combine knowledge and practices). there are other areas of knowledge, but these three will immediately make us a better muslim. Loves of prophet is increasing. knowlege of dua increasing understanding asking to allah. Knowledge should increase our knowledge.

3.   Services.
we have set times to do this. Weekdays or weekend. do some kind of services (help people). not necessarily do this under islamic banner. just do it. good causes, regardless. Just do it for ourselves, don’t publicly advertised in on social media. part of build maturity for teen.

These is not our goal, instead a thing the we can do to to be a good muslim.

Fikir dan random

Baru mendengar ceramah oleh Nauman Ali khan,  seorang penceramah di USA ini.  Background beliau yang unik semasa membesar di New York dan bagaimana beliau mendalami ilmu al Quran sangat menarik minat saya.

Antara perkara paling awal saya ingat berkenaan ceramah beliau adalah berkaitan sikap orang yang baru kenal dan terlebih semangat dalam agama. 

"haram police! "

Menurutnya orang yang selalu nampak yang negatif saja berkenaan orang lain  dan cepat menghukum. 

Sempat saya hadir ke Story Night di Orlando dimana beliau menceritakan kisah nabi Musa as dalam Quran.

Penceritaan beliau sangat menarik.  Diterangkan bagaimana al surah dalam al Quran disusun seperti sebuah filem bukanlah tidak disengajakan.

Bermula dalam Quran nabi Musa dan harun berhadapan dengan firaun supaya menyembah Allah.  Kemudian terus diceritakan  flashback ke tahun apabila firaun mendapat amaran dari ahli nujum berkenaan bayi lelaki yang akan menggugat kerajaan beliau,   dan seterusnya. 

Seperti filem Lord of the ring,  Ada trilogies,  dan kemudian prequel.  Kisah Musa begitu juga. 

Menarik dan berkesan penyampaian beliau.  Seorang yang faham bahasa Arab dan tinggi kefahaman.

Mendongak ke langit.

Tertunduk kepala dan mata melihat bumi.

Terasa bahu berat, lidah berasa kelat.

Allah, bantulah hambaMu.

Albert Einstein kata, orang gila sahaja membuat perkara yang sama berulang-ulang kali mengharapkan hasil yang berlainan!

Saintis, menjadi 'gila' ini adalah satu kemestian. Ulang lagi, lagi biar learning curve mendakit-dakit biar mantap protokol experimen.

Kemudian lihatlah pembolehubah/ faktor yang boleh dikawal, tunggu, dan tunggu benda hidup ini memberi respon.

Satu minggu, dua minggu, ..... empat bulan!



Siap sudah satu independent experiment!

Kalau menjadi, ulang lagi 2 kali, supaya hasilnya betul-betul sama. Barulah dikatakan boleh direplikasi.

Kalau tidak menjadi, buatlah beratus kali, faktor pembolehubah satu persatu diubah, menjadi beratus replikasi.

Menggaru kepala. Kalau ikut logik, kalau semudah membaca ABC sudah pasti tidak terkedil-kedil mengulang protokol kembali.

Buat experimen, tunggu dan terus menjadi, itulah yang dinamakan rezeki.

Buat experimen, tunggu dan tak jadi, itulah yang dinamakan mengaji.

Tertundak kepala melihat tanah, berbaur perasaan lelah dan kecewa.

Aku mendongak ke langit.


Masyallah, luas sungguh alam ini. 

Maha Pemberi Rezeki Rabbul Alamin, 

Jika ini baik untuk aku, kau permudahkanlah, 

Jika ini kurang baik untuk aku, kau jauhkanlah.

Masa semakin suntuk.

Sesungguhnya Kau Maha Mengetahui,

كون فاياكون

Backbitting or venting.






Unfortunately backbiting has becomea norm in all societies. It happens in the home, at work, school etc. It is the worst habit a Muslim can adopt and we must do everything to eradicate such an evil act.


Abu Huraira reported Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: Do you know what is backbiting? They (the Companions) said: Allah and His Messenger know best. Thereupon he (the Holy Prophet) said: Backbiting implies your talking about your brother in a manner which he does not like. It was said to him: What is your opinion about this that if I actually find (that failing) in my brother which I made a mention of? He said: If (that failing) is actually found (in him) what you assert, you in fact have backbitten him, and if that is not in him it is a slander. [Sahih Muslim Book 32, #6265] 

Backbiting is strictly prohibited in Islam and one can find evidence in the Quran and the Ahadith. Often backbiting is compared to one eating flesh of the dead. 

Allah(swt) says in the Quran: 

"O you who believe! Shun much suspicion; for lo! some suspicion is a crime. And spy not, neither backbite one another. Would one of you love to eat the flesh of his dead brother? You would abhor that. And keep your duty (to Allah). Lo! Allah is Relenting, Merciful." [Quran 49:12] 

Just as one finds it rather repulsive and loathes the idea of eating the flesh of a dead human, one should also loathe the idea of backbiting. Just like one is forbidden so is the other. 

Backbiting has been labeled as a destructive sin. Hasan al-Basri said: "I swear by Allah, backbiting is swifter in consuming the religion of a Muslim than a gangrenous infection is in consuming the human body." 




Cure for ghibah

Realize that it exposes you to the displeasure of Allah, the Exalted. Remind yourself that your good deeds will go to the person whom you are backbiting, and his sins will be borne by you. Ponder over your own faults, and occupy yourself with correcting them. Feel ashamed to discuss the faults of others when you yourself have so many faults. If you are rally free from fault, then occupy yourself with thanking Allah for His favor. Just as you would dislike someone else backbiting you, out yourself in the place of the one whom you are inclined to backbite.
"Indeed, truthfulness leads to righteousness, and righteousness leads to Heaven. And, a man [continues to] tell the truth, until he is recorded before Allah as a truthful one. And, indeed, lying leads to evil, and evil leads to Hell. And, a man [continues to] lie until he is recorded before Allah as a liar. [Bukhari, Muslim]
"Insulting a Muslim is impiety, and killing him is [a form of] unbelief." [Bukhari, Muslim, Ahmad, Nasa'i, Ibn Majah, Tirmidhi, Tabarani, Daraqutni.]



Ghibah of the heart

To think the worst of Muslims. You may not think badly of a Muslim unless you have definite knowledge of his having done something evil, and there is no possible excuse or justification for him. You should try to make 70 excuses for your brother, and if you cannot find an excuse for him, look for some flaw in your perception. If someone informs you of something bad about someone else, it is obligatory upon you to investigate the matter. Is there some enmity between the informer and the one he is telling you about? You are obliged to think the best of your Muslim brother/sister. Thwart Satan by making du`a for the person. Do not spy on your brother, under the pretext of trying to find out the truth. If it does turn out that he has done something wrong, then advise him in secret.



Cases in which ghibah is permissible

  1. Warning, such as warning a prospective buyer that the merchant is a swindler, or warning a student that his prospective teacher is an innovator or a deviant. Also, revealing the faults of weak narrators and forgers of hadith, and giving someone a candid appraisal of a person whom the former is thinking of marrying.
  2. Injustice. One who has suffered injustice is entitled to mention the one who has committed injustice to someone who is capable of restoring his rights to him, such as a legitimate Muslim ruler or judge.
  3. Seeking help to change an evil, or to reform the wrongdoer. If the intention in telling the ghibah is not to change the wrong, then it is forbidden to relate it.
  4. Asking for a fatwa. A person may say, 'My father/brother/wife has done such-and-such to me. What can I do about it?On the authority of `A'ishah : Hind, the wife of Abu Sufyan, said to the Prophet (may Allah bless him and grant him peace), "Abu Sufyan is a miserly man, and he is not giving me what would suffice me and my child, unless I take from him without his knowing." He said, "Take what suffices you and your child according to common usage." [Bukhari, Muslim]
    However, it is more precautionary to avoid mention of names, for example by asking instead, "What is the verdict regarding a person who has done such-and-such?"
    On the authority of Fatimah bint Qays : she said, "I came to the Prophet (may Allah bless him and grant him peace) and told him, "Abu Jahm and Mu`awiyah have [both] proposed to me." He said, "As for Mu`awiyah, he is a poor man with no money, and as for Abu Jahm, his stick never leaves his shoulder." [Bukhari, Muslim, Malik]
  5. If someone is commonly known by a nickname, although if there is some alternative way to refer to him, it is preferable.
  6. Someone who sins openly, and has no qualms about his sins being mentioned. However, it is not permissible to mention any of his secret sins."There can be no backbiting of one who casts off the mantle of modesty." [Suyuti, Al-Jami` As-Saghir, 2/519, from Bayhaqi.]




Expiation for ghibah

The backbiter has committed two infringements; one upon the limits of Allah, and this must be expiated by repentance and regret. The second is on the rights of his brothers/sisters. If news of the backbiting has reached the person, the backbiter must apologize to him/her, and express regret at having said it.
"Whoever has wronged his brother, in the way of property or honor, let him go to him and repair it, before it is taken [from him on a day] when he has no dirhams or dinars, such thatif he has any good deeds, some of the good deeds will be taken and given to [the wronged one], otherwise [if he has no good deeds], some of the other's evil deeds will be taken and cast upon him." [Bukhari, Al-Mazalim, 5/121, #2449. Ahmad, Al-Musnad, 2/435]
If the person has not learned that he has been backbited, then the backbiter need not tell him, but he should ask Allah to forgive him.
"The expiation with regard to one who has been backbited is that forgiveness be asked for him." [Suyuti, Al-Jami` As-Saghir, 2/390, #6259]
Mujahid said : the expiation for eating the flesh of your brother is that you praise him and pray for good for him, and similar is the case if he has died.

Finally:

Abu Dawud has reported that the Prophet (peace be upon him) said, ‘When I was taken up to heaven (i.e. during the Mi`raj) I passed by people who had nails of copper with which they were scratching their faces and their breasts. I said, ‘Who are these [people], O Gabriel?’ He replied: ‘They are those who consumed the flesh of people [i.e. backbite them] and aspersed their honor.
