Bahasa Ramadhan yang tercemar

Filed under: Religious — wan muhamad azmi mamat @ 4:20 am

Bulan puasa adalah istilah yang tidak tepat jika digunakan untuk menyatakan berkaitan bulan Ramadhan. Kerana ibadah puasa bukan sahaja boleh dilakukan pada bulan Ramadhan, tetapi boleh juga dilakukan pada masa-masa yang lain sebagai puasa sunat atau puasa nazar.

Namun ibadah puasa pada bulan Ramadhan merupakan suatu ibadah fardhu yang wajib dilakukan secara berterusan selama sebulan. Bulan Ramadhan bukan sahaja medan untuk menahan diri daripada makan dan minum, tetapi lebih kepada mendidik diri dalam pelbagai aspek kehidupan.

Bulan puasa merupakan suatu tempoh pengembaraan jiwa dengan memperbanyakkan ibadah seperti solat tarawikh, tilawah quran, zikir, bersedekah dan menyediakan makanan bagi orang yang berpuasa. Bulan puasa juga merupakan suatu tempoh mengasah akhlak mulia dengan memperbanyakan bersabar, mengawal tutur kata, simpati dan saling membantu.

Are we true Muslims? (Part 3)

Filed under: Religious — wan muhamad azmi mamat @ 7:48 am

Supreme loyalty to Allah

This is not a phenomenon peculiar to Islam. In fact, no way of life can ever prevail in this world if its followers accord their faith and commitment a subordinate position in their lives. Or, if they live and die for causes other than their faith.

We see even today that only those are considered real and true followers of a creed or ideology who are loyal to it with their hearts and souls. Every creed in the world desires such adherents and no creed can prevail in the world except though such followers.

Are we true Muslims? (Part 2)

Filed under: Religious — wan muhamad azmi mamat @ 9:38 am

Two Kinds of Muslims

Partial Muslims

Some Muslims profess faith in God and the Messenger and declare Islam as their religion; but then they confine this Islam to only part f their lives.

To the extent of this part, they express great attachment to Islam, extensively perform worship ritual like Prayers, use of the rosary, remembrance of God’s name. They are very particular in confirming to outward piety in matters like food, dress and other external social, cultural customs. Thus they are fully ‘religous’.

Are we true Muslims?

Filed under: Religious — wan muhamad azmi mamat @ 7:47 am

Brothers in Islam! Who are true Muslims? Let us see what Allah and His Messenger have to say their lives and hearts:

Say: My prayers and my sacrifices, and my living and my dying are for God alone, the Lord of all the worlds. No partner has He. Thus I have been commanded, and I am foremost among those who surrender [themselves unto Him]. (al-An’am, 6: 163-164)

The same theme is elucidated by the Prophet, blessing and peace be on him:

One who loves for the sake of Allah alone and hates for the sake of Allah alone; and whatever he gives, gives for the sake of Allah alone, and whatever he withholds, withholds for the sake of Allah alone – indeed, he perfects his Iman. (Abu Daud)

Pada suatu hari, ada seorang lelaki datang bertemu Ibrahim bin Adham.

“Wahai Abu Ishak (Ibrahim)! Saya seorang yang banyak berdosa dan zalim. Sudikah kiranya Tuan mengajar saya supaya menjadi zuhud, agar Allah menerangi jalan hidup saya dan melembutkan hati saya yang keras ini,” lelaki itu bertanya dan memohon bantuan.

“Kalau kau dapat memegang teguh enam ini, nescaya engkau akan selamat,” jawab Ibrahim.

Puasa = lapar ?
