alsunna.org - Muslim Girl reciting Quran with an Amazing Voice! بنت قارئة This Muslim Girl is 12 years old. She's Reciting al-Qur'an. The verse she's reciting is talking about God who created the sun and the skies and their constellations. Allah is the creator of everything. He has no beginning or end. Allah Does not need any of his creations. He Exists without a place Whatever you imagine in mind Allah is different from it. No one is God but Allah. He has power over all the creations, He sent Prophets to guide people to the true religion, Islam.

Among them: Moses, Jesus & Muhammad who is the last of the Prophets. ** The voice of the woman is NOT ^Awrah (unlawful) it can be heard even by men as hadiths confirm. This young girl is reciting Qur'an. Our lady ^Aisha used to teach men the religion with her voice. And some women chanted in praise for the Prophet and He did not stop them as confirmed by al-Bukhariy, Ibn Hajar and others. بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم 1. Say (O Muhammad) He is Allah, the One clear of partners and similars. قُلْ هُوَ اللَّهُ أَحَدٌ (1) 2. Allah is the One needed by all and He needs none. اللَّهُ الصَّمَدُ (2) 3. He does not beget children and He is not begotten. لَمْ يَلِدْ وَلَمْ يُولَدْ (3) 4. And there is none, in any way, similar to Him. وَلَمْ يَكُنْ لَهُ كُفُوًا أَحَدٌ (4) Length: 00:05:00

Mummy’s Quran




It was on one of the episodes that Tariq Aziz either introduced a guest who had written the entire Quran in his own hand, or spoke about someone who had done so. Mummy was struck by something he said at the time…something along the lines of God giving everyone the ‘naik taufeeq’ (good intentions) to do something similar….

And that’s all the impetus Mummy needed. She decided she would write the Quran too.

All she had to bank on was her ability to write neatly and with precision, a skill that earned her a good reputation amongst her teachers at school. That, and her intrinsic willfulness that carries her through the most nitpicky tasks.

She was untrained in the art of calligraphy, but that didn’t faze her….she just sent my father to buy her a bunch of flat-nibbed pens and some pretty bordered paper and set to work.

It took her around five years to complete the task at hand, page by painstaking page. It was very difficult going, and for my mom to say something like that tells you a lot. She had to write with grave concentration, as even one mistake meant she would have to do the entire page all over again. This she learnt the hard way.
So she wrote in the mornings when she was at her freshest, and even then for just half an hour, as that was the most she could manage.

So this gem of an endeavour, this testament of Mummy’s faith and tenacity, has been bound and covered in ochre velvet and lies on a shelf in the house, unseen, and largely unremarked. Family and some friends are all who know about Mummy’s hand-written Quran.



What matters hugely to my mother is the fact that she managed to show her work to the spiritual leader of our community of Dawoodi Bohras,  Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin, whom she humbly requested to inscribe in his own hand, the opening phrase…

quran bismillah
In the name of Allah, the most Beneficent, the most Merciful.

This Arabic phrase is spoken before embarking on anything significant, and having the ‘Bismillah’ written by Maulana was a foregone conclusion in Mummy’s scheme of things…..which is why she left those areas blank, until the opportunity came along….

it had been written in blue ink but had faded over time, so Mummy went over it with a gold pen

Syedna Burhanuddin wrote the first Bismillah in his inimitable script atop the Surah e Fateha, and then, to the surprise of all present, passed it on to his second son, Shehzada Mufaddal Bhaisaheb, to grace the beginning of the first chapter with a Bismillah of his own…..a move that sparked a buzz in the family as being something rather significant.

That was around 15 years ago..

Recent events have revealed the foresight and wisdom of Syedna Burhanuddin, a fragile yet powerful presence in our lives, whose centenary we all celebrated the world over, just a few months ago.

in the hand of Syedi Mufaddal Bhaisaheb

Mummy’s Quran will have the honour and distinction of being inscribed by two Da’i's, Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin, and his successor, now titled Syedi Mufaddal Bhaisaheb Saifuddin.
She has also stuck on the first page an autograph she procured sometime in the late 50′s, when she was still a school girl, of Syedna Taher Saifuddin…..the eminent and much-loved father of Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin.

a revered autograph

this is stuck right above....

and all that lies betwixt..

And to think Mummy has Neelaam Ghar and Tariq Aziz to thank for the inspiration. :)

The Sajdah in Surah Sad






The performance of Sajdah in Surah Sad is not one of the obligatory locations; it is a prostration of thanks (Sajdat Shukr). The evidence for it is the report recorded by Imam Ahmad from Ibn `Abbas, may Allah be pleased with him, who said; "The prostration in Surah Sad is not one of the obligatory prostrations; I saw the Messenger of Allah prostrating in this Surah.'' This was also recorded by Al-Bukhari, Abu Dawud, At-Tirmidhi, and An-Nasa'i in his Tafsir. At-Tirmidhi said, "Hasan Sahih.'' In his Tafsir of this Ayah, An-Nasa'i also recorded that Ibn `Abbas, may Allah be pleased with him, said, "The Prophet prostrated in Sad, and he said:
«سَجَدَهَا دَاوُدُ عَلَيْهِ الصَّلَاةُ وَالسَّلَامُ تَوْبَةً، وَنَسْجُدُهَا شُكْرًا»
(Dawud prostrated as an act of repentance and we prostrate as an act of thanks.)'' This was recorded only by An-Nasa'i. The men of its chain of narration are all reliable. In his Tafsir of this Ayah, Al-Bukhari recorded that Al-`Awwam said that he asked Mujahid about the prostration in Surah Sad. He said, `I asked Ibn `Abbas, may Allah be pleased with him, `Why do you prostrate' He said, `Have you not read:
﴿وَمِن ذُرِّيَّتِهِ دَاوُودَ وَسُلَيْمَـنَ﴾
(and among his ﴿Nuh's﴾ progeny Dawud, Sulayman) (6:84)
﴿أُوْلَـئِكَ الَّذِينَ هَدَى اللَّهُ فَبِهُدَاهُمُ اقْتَدِهْ﴾
(They are those whom Allah had guided. So follow their guidance) (6:90). Dawud, peace be upon him, was one of those whom your Prophet was commanded to follow. Dawud prostrated here so the Messenger of Allah also prostrated here.''' Abu Dawud recorded that Abu Sa`id Al-Khudri, may Allah be pleased with him, said, "The Messenger of Allah recited Sad while he was on the Minbar. When he reached the prostration, he came down from the Minbar and prostrated, and the people prostrated with him. On another occasion when he recited it, he reached the prostration and the people prepared to prostrate. He said:
«إِنَّمَا هِيَ تَوْبَةُ نَبِيَ، وَلَكِنِّي رَأَيْتُكُمْ تَشَزَّنْتُم»
(This is repentance for a Prophet, but I see that you are preparing to prostrate.) Then he came down (from the Minbar) and prostrated.'' This was recorded only by Abu Dawud and its chain of narration meets the conditions of the Two Sahihs.
﴿وَإِنَّ لَهُ عِندَنَا لَزُلْفَى وَحُسْنَ مَـَابٍ ﴾
(and verily, for him is a near access to Us, and a good place of (final) return.) means, on the Day of Resurrection, he will have good deeds by virtue of which he will be brought close to Allah, and he will have a good place of (final) return, which means the lofty levels of Paradise, because of his repentance and his perfect justice in his kingdom. As it says in the Sahih:
«الْمُقْسِطُونَ عَلَى مَنَابِرَ مِنْ نُورٍ عَنْ يَمِينِ الرَّحْمنِ، وَكِلْتَا يَدَيْهِ يَمِينٌ، الَّذِينَ يُقْسِطُونَ فِي أَهْلِيهِمْ وَمَا وَلُوا»
(Those who are fair and just with their families and those who are under their authority will be on Minbars of light on the right hand of Ar-Rahman, and both His Hands are right Hands.)''
﴿يدَاوُودُ إِنَّا جَعَلْنَـكَ خَلِيفَةً فِى الاٌّرْضِ فَاحْكُمْ بَيْنَ النَّاسِ بِالْحَقِّ وَلاَ تَتَّبِعِ الْهَوَى فَيُضِلَّكَ عَن سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ إِنَّ الَّذِينَ يَضِلُّونَ عَن سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ لَهُمْ عَذَابٌ شَدِيدُ بِمَا نَسُواْ يَوْمَ الْحِسَابِ ﴾

(26. O Dawud! Verily, We have placed you as a successor on the earth; so judge you between men in truth (and justice) and follow not your desire -- for it will mislead you from the path of Allah. Verily, those who wander astray from the path of Allah (shall) have a severe torment, because they forgot the Day of Reckoning

SIGNS FROM THE PROPHET SULAYMAN’S LIFE




THE PROPHET SULAYMAN WAS GIVEN AN UNPRECEDENTED SKILL

Sulayman said, ‘My Lord, forgive me and give me a kingdom the like of which will never be granted to anyone after me.Truly You are the Ever-Giving.’
(Surah Sad: 35)

Allah responded to the Prophet Sulayman’s prayers by giving him great blessings and knowledge. Allah bestowed upon him a magnificent dominion and powerful authority. In the verses of the Qur’an telling of the Prophet Sulayman’s life many details are offered about his wealth, authority and the way in which he used his knowledge.

THE PROPHET SULAYMAN WAS TAUGHT HOW TO COMMUNICATE WITH BIRDS

Allah taught the Prophet Sulayman the language of birds, and he used this knowledge to form a division of his army where only this bird language was spoken. The Prophet Sulayman communicated with birds and ruled them they way he saw fit. This situation occurred as a result of Allah’s compassion.
Sulayman was Dawud’s heir. He said, ‘Mankind! we have been taught the speech of birds and we have been given everything. This is indeed clear favour.’
(Surat an-Naml: 16)

We can derive important conclusions from this account.
- Birds have a special way of communicating with each other on a frequency beyond the range of human hearing. The Prophet Sulayman was given a special skill which allowed him to understand this language. This might have happened through a technological innovation.
- Using this skill (understanding communication in different frequencies), the Prophet Sulayman gave orders to the birds, so they might have fulfilled his orders. (Allah knows what is best.)
- The Prophet Sulayman used birds sometimes to send news and sometimes to collect intelligence, and this method was very successful. His knowledge made it easier for him to communicate with other countries and effectively brought distant lands within his reach.

Birds lack vocal cords. In order to produce sounds, birds send vibrations into their voice box (syrinx). The more muscles are connected to this box, the wider variety of sounds the bird can produce. For example, nightingales have a great many muscles connected to their voice box, and so can produce a multitude of different sounds. Communication is very important for birds, especially in environments where visibility is limited such as forests, fields and swamps. Birds communicate with each other by making sounds that resemble singing, screaming, tapping or drum-like noises. Each bird species has its own distinctive songs, and some species have more than a dozen. Others can imitate the songs of other species or even those of people.

Sad state of the separated Ummah






Abu Saeed al-Khudri (radiyallahu anhu) narrates:

 “We waged battle at the side of Rasulullah صلى الله عليه وسلم when 16 days of Ramdaan had passed. Some of us fasted and some did not. Neither did those who fasted find fault with those who did not fast; nor did those who did not fast find fault with those who fasted.” [Muslim]
Another Ramadaan has passed, and inshallah we have all achieved our aims. Major themes of the month are of course Taqwa, empathy for one’s fellow human being, patience etc

The above incident of respect for difference of opinions at the Battle of Badr might not be  a primary objective of the month,  yet the fact is that  occurred during Ramadaan as well, in the sacred presence of Rasulullah صلى الله عليه وسلم. No aspect of his sacred life is insignificant. As such, Ramadaan should also be a time when the Ummah  renews their commitment to respecting each others’ opinions, as long as the view expressed is not clearly opposed to the principles of Shari’ah.

Sadly, we all know that this is not the case. Every Muslim country, school of thought, organisation, tribe, family and individual is  an authority unto themselves, in effect ignoring the ultimate sovereignty of Allah. If I declare myself to be correct and perfect in all matters, “my way or the highway” have I not claimed partnership with Allah al-Haqq as-Subbuh?

An incident this Ramadaan demonstrated to me how incurably petty the Ummah still is. As a practitioner of Shafi’i Fiqh, I do not prostrate at the recitation of Surah Saad. Herewith link to the juristic discussion with a brief translation.

I have practised according the school I observe and never imposed this issue on others. This Ramadaan a Hanafi Imaam of a Masjid discussed the issue with me, mentioning a ruling he had received. He declared that he would announce this ruling in order to educate the Shafi’i members of the community.

I reflected that if a Hanafi is willing to educate others, my silence in the face of theological chauvinism was not justified.  I mentioned the matter to the Hanafi Imaam at the Masjid I was observing Taraaweeh and asked would he felt about him making a similar announcement. He said that I should make the announcement and I did so.

He later informed me that some Hanafi “Ulama” had approached him. They were upset and insisted that they had never heard of something like this before.

Whether one prostrates or not during Saad is a juristic discussion, which might or might not hold significance to some. What should however concern all of us are the facts this incident brought to light:
  •  This Ummah has some  scholars who have such fossilised mentalities that they can paraphrase the idolatrous Egyptian response to Musa ‘alayhis salaam as a proof, “We have never heard of this from our forebears of old!” [al-Qasas: 36]
  • They regard such an attitude as a virtue!
  • They are not content with stifling opinion in their own school, but consider it the greatest act of worship to impose their will and views on other schools as well.
  • Scholars are apparently exempt from seeking proof for rulings and can substitute query with gossip. 
  • Tolerance was for the Sahaabah radiyallahu anhum. Our opinions are apparently so elevated that all must toe the line.
  • Ramdaan is all about the individual. Nobody has the foresight to ponder how detrimental the effects of our intolerance are upon the already fragmented Ummah.

There are chauvinists and tolerant folk amongst all groups. If the article creates the impression that I am targeting a specific group, then I seek Allah’s forgiveness. The aim is to draw attention to a disease which must be remedied. If we cannot train ourselves to behave as Ummatis of Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم, even during Ramadaan, what does this pose for our future?

surat fatir


Imam Baihaqi di dalam kitab Ba'ts dan Ibnu Abu Hatim keduanya mengetengahkan sebuah hadis melalui jalur Nafi' ibnul Harits yang bersumber dari Abdullah ibnu Abu Aufa yang menceritakan, bahwa ada seorang lelaki berkata kepada Nabi saw., "Wahai Rasulullah! Sesungguhnya tidur itu termasuk sarana yang diciptakan oleh Allah untuk menyejukkan pandangan mata kami, maka apakah nanti di dalam surga ada tidur?" Lalu Nabi saw. menjawab, "Tidak ada, sesungguhnya tidur itu adalah teman mati, sedangkan di dalam surga tidak ada mati". Lelaki itu kembali bertanya, "Kalau demikian, dengan cara apakah penduduk surga istirahat?" Pertanyaan itu dirasakan amat berat oleh Rasulullah saw. lalu Rasulullah saw. menjawab, "Di dalam surga tidak ada rasa lesu, semua perihal dan keadaan mereka adalah kesantaian belaka". Setelah itu turunlah firman-Nya, "...di dalamnya kami tiada merasa lelah dan tiada pula merasa lesu." (Q.S. Fathir, 35).


Abu Na'im di dalam kitab Dalaail-nya mengetengahkan sebuah hadis yang bersumber dari sahabat Ibnu Abbas r.a. yang menceritakan bahwa Rasulullah saw. membaca surah As Sajdah, lalu beliau mengeraskan bacaannya, sehingga membuat segolongan orang-orang Quraisy merasa terganggu karenanya. Lalu mereka bangkit hendak memukul Rasulullah saw., akan tetapi tiba-tiba tangan mereka menjadi kaku menempel pada leher-leher mereka dan tiba-tiba mereka tidak dapat melihat sama sekali. Kemudian mereka mendatangi Nabi saw. seraya meminta kepadanya, "Kami minta pertolongan kepadamu demi Allah dan demi hubungan silaturahmi kita, hai Muhammad!", maka Rasulullah saw. mendoakan mereka sehingga keadaan mereka normal kembali. Lalu turunlah firman-Nya, "Yaa Siin. Demi Alquran yang penuh hikmah." (Q.S. Yasin, 1-2) sampai dengan firman-Nya, "...ataukah kamu tidak memberi peringatan kepada mereka, mereka tidak akan beriman." (Q.S. Yasin, 10). Selanjutnya sahabat Ibnu Abbas menceritakan, bahwa ternyata tidak ada seorang pun dari mereka itu yang mau beriman. Ibnu Jarir mengetengahkan sebuah hadis melalui Ikrimah yang menceritakan, bahwa Abu Jahal telah mengatakan, "Sungguh jika aku melihat Muhammad, aku akan hajar dia dan aku akan melakukan demikian dan demikian." Lalu Allah menurunkan firman Nya, "Sesungguhnya Kami telah memasang belenggu di leher mereka..." (Q.S. Yasin, 8). sampai pada firman-Nya, "...sehingga mereka tidak dapat melihat." (Q.S. Yasin, 9). Orang-orang mengatakan kepadanya, "Inilah Muhammad", akan tetapi Abu Jahal berkata, "Mana dia? mana dia?", sedangkan ia tidak dapat melihat.

Interpretation of Sura al-Fatir - Verses 29-30




29.“Verily, those who recite the Book of Allah and establish prayer and spend (in charity) out of what We have provided them, secretly and openly, hope for a merchandise which will never perish,”

30. “That He will pay them their rewards fully and increase of His grace unto them; verily He is Forgiving, Thankful (of their good deeds).”
Commentary
The words ‘prayer’ and ‘Book’ (the Qur’a-n) have repeatedly been mentioned beside each other in the Qur’a-n, and also prayer must be accompanied with helping the deprived. In view of the fact that the former verses referred to the state of fear of the learned ones from Allah, the verse under discussion points to their state of ‘hope’, because, as we said, it is only by means of these two wings that man can fly high in the sky of felicity and pave the path of spiritual development. At first, the verse says:

“Verily, those who recite the Book of Allah and establish prayer and spend (in charity) out of what We have provided them, secretly and openly, hope for a merchandise which will never perish,”

It is evident that the act of recitation here is not a mere reciting without contemplation and action. It is a reading which is the origin of thought, a ponder which is the source of righteous deed, an action which, on one side, joins man to Allah the manifestation of which is prayer, and, on the other side, it relates him to the servants of Allah the manifestation of which is spending in charity, expending from whatever Allah has bestowed on a person, including: wealth, knowledge, authority, powerful thought, character, experiences, and, briefly speaking, from all merits that Allah has given him.

Sometimes this expending is done secretly (/sirran/) to be the sign of a complete sincerity, and sometimes it is done openly (/‘ala-niyah/) in order to encourage others and to be the veneration of rituals.

Yes, the knowledge which has such an effect is the source of hope.

Regarding the contents of this verse and the verse before it we conclude that the true Muslim scholars have the following characteristics.

From the spiritual point of view, their hearts are full of fear of Allah mixed with His greatness.

From the point of speech, their tongues are busy reciting the verses of Allah.

From the point of the spiritual and bodily action, they establish prayer and worship Him.

And, finally, from the point of aim, the horizon of their thought is so high that they have left the fleeting material world aside and look for only the Divine beneficial merchandise which will neither be dull nor does it vanish.

Surat yang Dibaca ketika Shalat Dhuha




doa shalat dhuha


Pertanyaan:
Assalamu’alaikum Ustadz
Bagaimana Derajat Hadist ini:
Menurut Ibnu Abidin yang sebaiknya dibaca pada shalat dhuha adalah surat Asy-Syam pada rakaat pertama dan surat Ad-Dhuha pada rakaat kedua.
Hal ini berdasarkan riwayat dari Uqban bin Amir, “Kami diperintahkan Rasulullah shallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam untuk shalat dhuha dengan membaca sejumlah surat. Di antaranya Asy-Syams dan Adh-Dhuha.”

Sementara dalam Nihayatul Muhtaj disebutkan bahwa yang lebih utama membaca surat Al-Kafirun dan Al-Ikhlas karena surat Al-Ikhlas setara dengan sepertiga Alquran dan Al-Kafirun setara dengan seperempat Alquran.

Jawaban:
Wa’alaikumussalam
Alhamdulillah was shalatu was salamu ‘ala Rasulillah…

Bacaan Sholat Dhuha

Terdapat sebuah hadis yang menganjurkan untuk membaca surat As Syams pada rakaat pertama dan membaca surat Ad dhuha pada rakaat kedua. Hadis tersebut berbunyi:
صلوا ركعتي الضحى بسورتيها : (والشمس وضحاها) ، و (الضحى).
Shalatlah dua rakaat dhuha dengan membaca dua surat dhuha, yaitu surat Was syamsi wadhuhaa haa dan surat Adh dhuha.

Dalam riwayat yang lain terdapat tambahan: “Barangsiapa yang mengamalkannya maka dia diampuni.”
Hadis di atas diriwayatkan oleh Ar Ruyani dalam Musnad­-nya dan Ad Dailami (2:242) dari jalur Musyaji’ bin ‘Amr. Hadis ini juga disebutkan oleh Al Hafidz Ibn Hajar dalam Fathul Bari Syarh Shahih Bukhari dan tidak dikomentari. Beliau hanya menyatakan bahwa bacaan surat tersebut ada kesesuaian bacaan dengan shalat yang dikerjakan. Namun yang benar, hadis di atas adalah hadis palsu. Sebagaimana dijelaskan oleh Syaikh Al Albani, beliau mengatakan: “Hadis ini palsu, cacatnya ada pada Musyaji’ bin Amr. Ibn Ma’in berkomentar tentang Musyaji’: “yang saya tahu dia (musyaji’) adalah seorang pendusta.” (Silsilah Hadis Dhaif dan Palsu, hadis ke-3774).

Hadis ini juga didhaifkan oleh Al Munawi dalam Faidlul Qodir dengan alasan adanya perawi yang bernama Musyaji’ bin Amr. Imam Ad Dzahabi dalam Ad Dlu’afa’ mengatakan dengan menukil perkataan Ibn Hibban: “Dia memalsukan hadis dari Ibn Lahi’ah dan dia adalah dhaif.” (Faidlul Qodir, 4:201).

Dari dua penjelasan ini, dapat diambil kesimpulan dengan yakin bahwa hadis yang menganjurkan shalat dhuha dengan bacaan tertentu adalah hadis dhaif. Artinya tidak ada anjuran untuk mengkhususkan shalat dhuha dengan bacaan tertentu, baik di rakaat pertama, rakaat kedua, maupun doa setelah shalat dhuha.
Dalam masalah ini, terdapat satu kaidah terkait masalah ibadah yang penting untuk diketahui:
“Membatasi setiap ibadah yang sifatnya mutlak dengan tata cara tertentu –misalnya waktu, tempat, bacaan, jumlah, dan yang lainnya- tanpa ada keterangan dalil yang shahih termasuk salah satu bentuk bid’ah.” (Qowa’id Ma’rifatil Bida’, Hal. 52)

Karena hadis yang dijadikan dalil untuk menetapan dua surat di atas adalah hadis palsu maka tidak selayaknya dijadikan pegangan untuk mengkhususkan bacaan tertentu dalam shalat dhuha. Karena hadis palsu bukanlah sabda Nabi shallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam. Sementara mengkhususkan bacaan tertentu untuk ibadah yang sifatnya umum (tidak ditentukan bacaannya) padahal tidak ada dasarnya, termasuk salah satu perbuatan bid’ah. Wallahu a’lam.

As Syaikh Ibn Baz rahimahullah pernah ditanya tentang bacaan surat As Syamsi dan Ad dhuha ketika shalat dhuha. Beliau menjawab:


“Adapun yang sesuai sunah, engkau membaca surat yang mudah menurutmu setelah membaca Al Fatihah. Dalam bacaan tersebut tidak ada batasan tertentu, karena yang wajib hanya Al Fatihah sedangkan tambahannya adalah sunah. Maka jika setelah Al Fatihah engkau membaca surat As Syamsi, Al Lail, Ad dhuha, Al Insyirah, dan surat-surat yang lainnya, ini adalah satu hal yang baik.” (Majmu’ Fatawa dan Maqalat Ibn Bazz, 11).

petikan khutbah singkat




http://denizli.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2012/10/qaba.makka_.mekke_.kaba_.islam_.tolgay.biz_1.jpg


Kaum Muslimin Jamaah Sholat Jumat yang berbahagia

Oleh sebab itu pada kesempatan jumat  kali ini, di saat kita telah berada di penghujung tahun 1430 H dan di akhir tahun 2009 M ini, minimal ada tiga hal yang perlu menjadi renungan kita. Agar hari-hari yang telah berlalu dan hari-hari yang akan datang pada tahun yang baru akan membuat kita sadar bahwa sesungguhnya setiap jiwa tidak dibiarkan saja hidup semaunya, hidup yang dilalui akan dipintai pertanggungan jawab  di akhirat kelak.

Hal pertama, yang harus menjadi perhatian dan dihitung oleh setiap orang beriman dari dirinya adalah: Apa yang telah ia lakukan untuk dirinya dari amal sholeh pada tahun ini? Apakah ia termasuk orang yang dapat berbahagia, karena telah mengisinya dengan ketaatan di setiap hari-harinya, bulan-bulannya, pada setiap moment ibadah pada tahun lalu dari ibadah sholat, inadah puasa, menunaikan kewajiban zakat, ibadah haji dan kurbannya dengan sungguh-sungguh dan penuh ketaqwaan? Atau bersedih dan menangislah bagi yang teramat banyak melalaikan kenikmatan tahun yang berlalu ini dengan kemaksiatan, kedurhakaan, bahkan tidak mengindahkan syariat-syariat Allah dengan penuh rasa takut kepada-Nya. Allah berfirman:

وَنَفْسٍ وَمَا سَوَّاهَا، فَأَلْهَمَهَا فُجُورَهَا وَتَقْوَاهَا، قَدْ أَفْلَحَ مَن زَكَّاهَا، وَقَدْ خَابَ مَن دَسَّاهَا
dan jiwa serta penyempurnaannya (ciptaannya), maka Allah mengilhamkan kepada jiwa itu (jalan) kefasikan dan ketakwaannya. sesungguhnya beruntunglah orang yang mensucikan jiwa itu, dan sesungguhnya merugilah orang yang mengotorinya. (QS. Asy-Syams: 7-10)

Hadirin yang berbahagia
Hal kedua perlu menjadi bahan renungan kita, adalah keluarga dan rumah kita. Setiap orang hendaklah bertanya kepada dirinya masing-masing? Apakah yang telah ia berikan untuk keluarganya? Sudahkah cahaya iman ia bawa masuk ke dalam rumahnya dengan bersama-sama keluarga menuju ketaatan kepada Allah? Karena hendaklah setiap rumah seorang muslim menjadi titik tolak kebaikan bagi dirinya dan keluarganya. Jika rumahnya hampa dari siraman ayat-ayat Al-Quran, bahkan tidak pernah diperdengarkan Al-Quran selama satu tahun yang lalu, maka sangat wajarlah jikalau merasakan rumah itu laksana kuburan yang tidak ada ketenangan di dalamnya, bahkan dihantui oleh rasa takut dan was-was. Rosulullah bersabda:

عن عبد الرحمن بن سابط قال قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه و سلم البيت الذي يقرأ فيه القرآن يكثر خيره ويوسع على أهله ويحضره الملائكة ويهجره الشياطين وإن البيت الذي لا يقرا فيه يضيق على أهله ويقل خيره ويهجره الملائكة ويحضره الشياطين .

Dari Abdurrahman bin Sabith, Rosulullah besabda: “Rumah yang dibacakan di dalamnya Al-Quran akan anyak kebaikannya, diluaskan bagi penghuninya, dihadiri oleh malaikat dan setan pergi darinya. Dan rumah yang tidak dibacakan di dalamnya Al-Quran, maka akan merasa sempitlah penghuninya, sedikit kebaikan di dalamnya, malaikat pergi darinya dan dihuni oleh setan. (HR. Abdul Razak dan Dailami)

Hal ketiga yang perlu kita hitung-hitung dan instospeksi adalah hak tetangga dan masyarakat dan kewajiban kita kepada mereka. Apakah kita  sudah menyampaikan amanat yang diembankan kepada kita dengan baik, ataukah  kita khianati amanat tersebut? Sudahkah hak-hak bertetangga dan bermasyarakat kita tunaikan dengan baik? Jika belum bermohonlah ampunan kepada Allah atas setiap kelemahan kita dalam menjalankan kewajiban terhadap sesame hamba beriman. Sabda Rosulullah berikut cukuplah menjadi acuan kita dalam menjalani kehidupan sehari-hari.

عَنْ أَبِى هُرَيْرَةَ أَنَّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ -صلى الله عليه وسلم- قَالَ : حَقُّ الْمُسْلِمِ عَلَى الْمُسْلِمِ سِتٌّ. قِيلَ مَا هُنَّ يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ قَالَ : إِذَا لَقِيتَهُ فَسَلِّمْ عَلَيْهِ وَإِذَا دَعَاكَ فَأَجِبْهُ وَإِذَا اسْتَنْصَحَكَ فَانْصَحْ لَهُ وَإِذَا عَطَسَ فَحَمِدَ اللَّهَ فَسَمِّتْهُ وَإِذَا مَرِضَ فَعُدْهُ وَإِذَا مَاتَ فَاتَّبِعْهُ.
Dari Abu Hurairah ra. Rosulullah saw bersabda: Hak muslim atas muslim yang lain ada enam. Sahabat bertanya, apakah itu Ya Rosulullah? Rosul menjawab: Apabila bertemu ucapkanlah salam, apabila ia mengundangmu maka penuhilah, apabila meminta nasehat kepadamu, nasehatilah, apabila sakit jenguklah dan apabila meninggal dunia hantarlah jenazahnya. ( HR. Muslim)  

Kehidupan individual saat ini yang cenderung membuat satu sama lain tidak saling kenal bahkan menaruh curiga, hal ini sangat bertolak belakang dan jauh dari nilai-nilai mulia agama islam. Sehingga terlihat kehidupan ukhuwah islamiyah terasa hambar dan mulai memudar.  


Semoga khutbah singkat ini menjadi sedikit renungan kita di akhir tahun untuk menapaki tahun baru 1431 H dan tahun 2010 M dengan lebih baik. Menanamkan keinginan kuat dalam dada untuk menjadi seorang hamba yang taat kepada Allah,dapat membawa dan memberikan kebaikan bagi keluarga dan masyarakat. Amiin ya rabbal alamiin.

Bukan dunia namanya, jika tidak ada ujian didalamnya




http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-DasUn_Ge1Kk/T4NiH7e7JKI/AAAAAAAAAWQ/2Ib0B5E2Ofg/s1600/Muslims-at-prayer-sujud.jpg


Kita diuji dengan jalan-jalan petunjuk (jalan Allaah, RasulNya dan kaum mukminin) dan jalan-jalan kesesatan (jalan ibliis, jalan penyeru kesesatan, dan hawa hafsu)

Allaah berfirman:
وَأَنَّ هَٰذَا صِرَاطِي مُسْتَقِيمًا فَاتَّبِعُوهُ ۖ وَلَا تَتَّبِعُوا السُّبُلَ فَتَفَرَّقَ بِكُمْ عَن سَبِيلِهِ ۚ ذَٰلِكُمْ وَصَّاكُم بِهِ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَتَّقُونَ
dan bahwa (yang Kami perintahkan ini) adalah jalan-Ku yang lurus, maka ikutilah dia, dan janganlah kamu mengikuti jalan-jalan (yang lain), karena jalan-jalan itu mencerai beraikan kamu dari jalan-Nya. Yang demikian itu diperintahkan Allah agar kamu bertakwa.
(al an’aam: 153)

Allaah berfirman:
وَهَدَيْنَاهُ النَّجْدَيْنِ
Dan Kami telah menunjukkan kepadanya dua jalan
(al Balad: 10)

Allaah berfirman:
فَأَلْهَمَهَا فُجُورَهَا وَتَقْوَاهَا . قَدْ أَفْلَحَ مَن زَكَّاهَا . وَقَدْ خَابَ مَن دَسَّاهَا
maka diilhamkan (oleh Allaah) kepada jiwa itu (jalan) kefasikan dan ketakwaannya, sesungguhnya beruntunglah orang yang mensucikan jiwa itu, dan sesungguhnya merugilah orang yang mengotorinya.
(asy Syams: 8-10)

Allaah berfirman:
فَإِمَّا يَأْتِيَنَّكُم مِّنِّي هُدًى فَمَن تَبِعَ هُدَايَ فَلَا خَوْفٌ عَلَيْهِمْ وَلَا هُمْ يَحْزَنُونَ
Kemudian jika datang petunjuk-Ku kepadamu, maka barang siapa yang mengikuti petunjuk-Ku, niscaya tidak ada kekhawatiran atas mereka, dan tidak (pula) mereka bersedih hati”.
(al Baqarah: 38)

Dia juga berfirman:
فَإِمَّا يَأْتِيَنَّكُم مِّنِّي هُدًى فَمَنِ اتَّبَعَ هُدَايَ فَلَا يَضِلُّ وَلَا يَشْقَىٰ
Maka jika datang kepadamu petunjuk daripada-Ku, lalu barangsiapa yang mengikut petunjuk-Ku, ia tidak akan sesat dan tidak akan celaka.
(thaa haa : 123)

Allaah berfirman:
أَفَمَن كَانَ عَلَىٰ بَيِّنَةٍ مِّن رَّبِّهِ كَمَن زُيِّنَ لَهُ سُوءُ عَمَلِهِ وَاتَّبَعُوا أَهْوَاءَهُم
Maka apakah orang yang berpegang pada keterangan yang datang dari Rabbnya sama dengan orang yang (syaithan) menjadikan dia memandang baik perbuatannya yang buruk itu dan mengikuti hawa nafsunya?

(Muhammad : 14)
