Solat Sunat Dhuha

Assalamualaikum w.b.t.


Al-Imam Abdullah bin Alawi bin Muhammad bin Ali Al-Tarimi Al-Haddad Al-Husaini Al-Yamani mewasiatkan di dalam wasiatnya yang pertama:



Biasakanlah pula mengerjakan shalat sunnah dhuhâ secara rutin, sebanyak delapan rakaat, dan irirngilah dengan bacaan sesudahnya, sebanyak empatpuluh kali:


(Ya Allah, ampunilah daku dan berikanlah taubat (atas segala dosa-ku). Sesungguhnya Engkaulah Maha Pemberi Taubat lagi Maha Penyayang).


Bilakah yang dikatakan waktu Dhuha?

Waktu untuk mengerjakan solat Dhuha adalah sewaktu matahari mulai naik iaitu sebaik sahaja berakhirnya waktu yang diharamkan solat setelah solat Subuh (12 minit setelah matahari terbit atau untuk lebih berhati-hati laksanakannya setelah 15 minit) sehingga sebelum matahari condong atau tergelincir ketika tengahari (10 minit sebelum masuk waktu Zuhur atau untuk lebih berhati-hati laksanakannya sebelum 15 minit). Menurut Syaikh al-‘Utsaimin di dalam Asy-Syarhul Mumti’:

Jika demikian, waktu solat Dhuha dimulai setelah keluar dari waktu larangan solat pada awal siang hari (pagi hari) sampai adanya larangan saat tengah hari.

Namun demikian waktu yang afdal adalah pada saat matahari panas terik.

Sabda Rasulullah shallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam:

صَلاَةُ الأَوَّابِينَ حِينَ تَرْمَضُ الْفِصَالُ.
Maksudnya:

Solat Awwabin (orang-orang yang taubat) dilakukan pada saat teriknya matahari.-Hadis riwayat Imam Muslim dalamShahihnya, KitabSholaatul Musaafiriin wa Qashruha, no: 748.



Niat solat sunat Dhuha.



"Sahaja aku sembahyang sunat Dhuha 2 rakaat kerana Allah Ta'ala"


Solat sunat Dhuha dilakukan seperti solat sunat biasa, cuma yang membezakan adalah:

  • Pada rakaat pertama, disunatkan membaca surah as-Syams selepas al-Fatihah.
    Pada rakaat kedua, disunatkan membaca surah ad-Dhuha selepas al-Fatihah.

  • Bacaan di sujud terakhir sebanyak 3 kali;






Daripada Anas radhiallahu’ anh, dia berkata: Rasulullah shallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam bersabda:

مَنْ صَلَّى الْغَدَاةَ فِي جَمَاعَةٍ ثُمَّ قَعَدَ يَذْكُرُ اللَّهَ حَتَّى تَطْلُعَ الشَّمْسُ

ثُمَّ صَلَّى رَكْعَتَيْنِ كَانَتْ لَهُ كَأَجْرِ حَجَّةٍ وَعُمْرَةٍ قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ

تَامَّةٍ تَامَّةٍ تَامَّةٍ.

Maksudnya:
Barangsiapa mengerjakan solat Subuh secara berjemaah lalu sesudah itu dia tetap duduk (di masjid) untuk berzikir kepada Allah sehingga matahari terbit (dan meninggi), kemudian solat (Dhuha) dua rakaat maka dia akan mendapat pahala sebagaimana pahala haji dan umrah. Dia berkata (Anas), Rasulullah bersabda: Yang sempurna, Yang Sempurna, Yang Sempurna.– Hadis riwayat Imam al-Tirmidzi dalam Sunannya, Kitab al-Jumu’ah,no: 535.









Bilangan rakaat bagi solat sunat Dhuha;

Jumlah rakaat solat Dhuha paling minima adalah dua rakaat dan ia boleh dikerjakan tanpa batasan jumlah rakaat yang tertentu.

Kebiasannya adalah dua, enam, lapan atau dua belas rakaat.

Al-Imam Hujjatul Islam Al-Ghazali r.a. menulis di dalam Bidayatul Hidayah;
"Apabila matahari telah naik sampai ke waktu Dhuha iaitu apabila telah berlalu lebih kurang satu perempat siang maka hendaklah engkau mengerjakan sembahyang sunat Dhuha atau empat, atau enam, atau lapan rakaat. Engkau buat sembahyang ini dua rakaat, dua rakaat seperti apa yang telah diriwayatkan daripada Rasulullah s.a.w dan sebenarnya sembahyang ini sangat baik dan sangat besar pahalanya oleh itu terserahlah kepada seseorang apakah dia hendak memperbanyakkannya atau mengurangkannya."

Doa selepas solat Dhuha;


Ya Allah, sesungguhnya waktu Dhuha itu waktu DhuhaMu, kecantikanny adalah kecantikanMu,

keindahan itu keindahanMu, kekuatan itu kekuatanMu,

kekuasaan itu kekuasaanMu dan perlindungan itu perlindunganMu.
Ya Allah, jika rezekiku masih di langit, turunkanlah, dan jika di dalam bumi, keluarkanlah,
jika sukar, permudahkanlah, jika haram, sucikanlah dan jika jauh, dekatkanlah.
Berkat waktu dhuha, kecantikan. keindahan, kekuatan, kekuasaanMu,
limpahkan kepadaku segala yang Engkau telah limpahkan kepada hamba-hambaMu yang soleh.




Begitulah solat sunat Dhuha, yang dilakukan selepas solat sunat Isyraq dan tiada solat sunat pada waktu kedua itu sehingga Zohor selain keduanya. Murabbi pernah berkata; "istiqamah itu sukar sekali." Maka dengan itu Murabbi berpesan supaya sentiasa istiqamah, mencuba semampu mungkin.



Beribadahlah mengikut kemampuan.

Dari Anas r.a katanya: Pada suatu ketika Rasulullah SAW masuk ke masjid. Lalu dilihatnya ada sebuah tali terbentang di antara dua batang tiang, maka baginda bertanya:”Tali apakah ini?” Jawab para sahabat, “Tali yang dibentangkan Zainab untuk dia solat. Bila dia malas atau letih, dia berpegang pada tali tersebut.” Sabda baginda SAW:”Bukalah tali itu. Solatlah sesuai dengan kemampuanmu masing-masing; apabila kamu malas atau letih, maka kamu boleh solat sambil duduk.”

Senandung Zikir.

Assalamualaikum w.b.t.


Malam di CFS yang mungkinnya seperti biasa bagi yang lain, tapi bagi diri ini, berbeza sedikit.
Malam ini, diberi satu peluang yang jarang sekali.


Berjalan ke masjid,
memasuki pintu masuk,
dan mendengar "Bicara Hikmah&Senandung Zikir."


Berpeluang melihat Ustaz Syed Abdul Kadir al-Jofree.


Subhanallah, Maha Suci Allah. Segala pujian itu hanyalah untukMu, ya Allah.








Dalam kesepian malam menuju ke masjid, mengambil peluang dengan seboleh-bolehnya. Langkah yang kecil, dengan harapan menambah pahala.


Teringat saat pertama kali menjejakkan diri ke masjid UIAM. Ketika diri disarankan, berjemaah sahaja di mahallah. Yang kerap kali keluar masuk masjid itu kebanyakannya brothers. Maka diri pun menahan niat, mengelakkan fitnah. Tidak ku jejaki masjid itu berbulan lamanya.


Tapi sejauh mana boleh ku lari?


Selalu sahaja mengambil tempat duduk, di tingkat 3 perpustakaan, di hujung sekali.
Kerana apa?
Kerana di situ dapat dilihat masjid yang berdiri utuh.
Jarang sekali ku fikirkan tentang itu, namun ternyata, mataku sentiasa merindu untuk melihat, kakiku sentiasa rindu untuk melangkah ke situ.








Maka malam ini menjadi saksi, perjalananku ke situ. Kebahagiaan yang sebentar selama mana diri berada di rumah Allah. Tidak ku lihat langit untuk mengira bintang, tapi diri yakin pemandangan tetap indah.


Malam ini teringat lagi, rakan yang di bumi Mesir. Moga kalian baik-baik sahaja, insyaAllah.




Sunyi, selubungi malam.
Mengusik minda yang terlontar jauh.
Masih hangat terasa.
Tangan yang membelai yang mengusik manja.
Daku damba kasihmu.
Biar jadi pedoman.
Buat penyuluh jalan kugapai impian.

Angin, kau nyanyikan lagu.
Untuk permataku, tenang selalu.
Bayu, sampaikan berita.
Daku kini ceria, aman dan bahgia.
Selimutkan rinduku bersama malammu.

InsyaAllah, akan ku gapai impian. Janji pada diri sendiri dan yang pernah ku temui, Kimia 1 bittaufiq wannajah, 4.0. Dengan nama Allah, takbir, ALLAHUAKBAR!



Wallahua'lam.

Laksana pedang membunuh jiwa.

Assalamualaikum w.b.t.


Ditakdirkan Allah s.w.t, awal Muharram ini membawa satu perubahan kepada diri.
Adakah mungkin ini hijrahku yang paling utama setakat ini?

 عَنْ ثَوُبَانَ رَضِىَ اللهُ عَنْهُ قَالَ: قَالَ رَسُوْلُ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ: طُوْبىَ لِمَنْ مَلَكَ لِسَانَهُ، وَوَسِسعَهُ بَيْتَهُ، وَبَكَى عَلَى خَطِيْئَتِهِ

Daripada Tsauban Radhiallahu ‘Anhu katanya: Telah bersabda Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasalam): Berbahagialah bagi orang yang mampu mengawal lidahnya, dan luas rumahnya, dan menangis (kerana menyesali) kesalahannya  
[Hadis Hasan Riwayat Thabarany]

Mungkin sekarang diri kurang berbicara, tapi banyak pula yang ditulis. Apakah menulis dan berkata itu sama? Persamaannya ada pada yang mendengar dan membaca. Mesej yang disampaikan itu sama, cuma cara berbeza.

Apabila berkata-kata, laju saja mulut menyebutnya, kadang-kadang terluka yang mendengar.

Apabila menulis, laju saja tangan melakukannya, kadang-kadang terasa hati yang membaca.

Tapi ada perbezaan juga di situ.

Bila berkata, susah sekali hendak berhenti berfikir. Malah, kata-kata yang terluah tidak mungkin ditarik balik. Walau sejuta maaf, walau beribu alasan. Kata itu sudah didengar.

Bila menulis, kerap kali akan berfikir. Malah, ada yang dipadam, dan tidak akan diketahui sesiapa pun melainkan si penulis. Tapi apa yang ditulis akan menjadi bukti, sahih diri yang menulis. Sedangkan kata akan berlalu begitu sahaja, seperti angin sepoi-sepoi bahasa.



Ditakdirkan Allah s.w.t, diri telah mendapat nasihat untuk menulis.
Dikatakan kepadaku,

"Setiap apa yang kita tulis akan ditanya di akhirat."

Laksana pedang membunuh jiwa, sungguh, diri terkesima.
Bukan tidak tahu setiap perbuatan itu akan ditanya kelak, akan dihitung. Namun jarang sekali perkara itu difikirkan, apatah lagi kaitannya dengan penulisanku. Selama ini, apa yang diri tahu,

"Diri menulis, orang membaca. InsyaAllah, mendapat faedah bagi keduanya."

Itu sahaja. Naifkah diri ini pada hakikatnya?




Hijrah bermula lama dahulu. Di saat kita semua tiada di situ. Kita tidak ditakdirkan Allah s.w.t untuk berhijrah ketika itu. Tapi kita ditakdirkan untuk berhijrah sekarang.

Tahun ini, kita masih bernafas dengan izinNya.

Maka akan diri katakan, hijrah itu banyak sekali cabangnya. Bukan sedikit, malahan banyak sekali. Mungkin daripada jarang membaca al-Quran, kepada hanya 5 ayat setiap hari. Siapakah yang akan mengatakan itu bukan hijrah? Itu satu hijrah pada mata ini, kerana al-Quran itu tetap diingati. Islam itu mudah sekali, bahkan siapa yang menjadikannya susah?

Kata orang, sedikit-sedikit lama-lama jadi bukit.

Ketahuilah, pahala juga seperti itu. Ketahuilah, amal baik itu menghapuskan dosa.

Diriwayatkan daripada Abu Hurairah r.a katanya: Rasulullah s.a.w bersabda:Orang mukmin sama ada lelaki ataupun perempuan akan sentiasa diuji oleh Allah s.w.t, sama ada dirinya, anaknya ataupun hartanya sehinggalah dia menghadap Allah s.w.t tanpa dia membawa dosa sedikitpun.”– Hadith riwayat Imam Tirmizi


Masihkah ada keraguan di hati, bahawa Allah s.w.t itu menyayangi kita?


Wallahua'lam.

Travel log 4 part 2.

Assalamualaikum w.b.t.


Yesterday resume today.


When sis Aisyah and I walked back to the mosque, they were more people in it. We sat on the place we sat earlier and we both read Ratib al-Haddad together. Usually I would it alone, however, it felt good to have a companion.


The dawn had came to its end, Maghrib will arrive soon.


I was about to take off my niqab when a sister opened the curtain thus revealing the other side of the mosque. The Muslimeens' side. I waited and the Imam started the zikr and selawat. Just a few minutes after, the do'a for end of the year were recited.



All the ma'mum followed the Imam. Subhanallah.

After it ended, the Bilal started to azan. Calling all Muslims to pray. It was different than the azan at CFS, however, I shouldn't be expected people to have the same way to azan.

Then the do'a for starting of the year were recited.

Doa Akhir Tahun

Again, the ma'mum followed the Imam.
And we prayed, together.

They were few niqabers around and I can see the hesitation in their eyes. Most of them were. I also did. It was mainly because the curtain that separate us muslimah and muslimeen were never been opened, thus we can safely take off our niqab. It was different yesterday, but I did take it off. Some did not. I won't say there is particulars nor rules when wearing niqab, but choices belongs to individuals.

Soon after, the program truly began. UM did shalawat yesterday. Whole-heartedly.

The memories will never fade away, insyaAllah. I was chosen to be there, under Allahs' willing.
Alhamdulillah, all praises to Allah.

After it had ended, tusaiyyah began. The first one was given by Al-Habib Naqjmuddin bin Othman Al-Kirid and the second given by Al-Habib Ali Zaenal Abidin bin Abu Bakar Al-Hamid. I never heard the word "tausiyyah" before. So it was a new thing for me. I learnt something, and it was valuable.

I saw what my Murabbi meant by seeking for knowledge form different Syeikhs'. I can really differentiate between Murabbi and both Al-Habib yesterday. It broaden my mind and perspective of view.

Isya' followed moments after the tausiyyah ended. Al-Habib had prayed for the students of UM and I wished, at that time, IIUM would do a similar event, even if it would be at Gombak.

It was almost 10 when the program ended. We decided not to linger around and started to walk back. We walked along together from the mosque to the LRT station. We waited for the bus and it arrived few seconds after the tenth minute.

We ate together when we arrived at the mahallah, and we said our goodbyes.



It was a smooth, long day. There might be nothing special to commoners but, for me, it was something. I haven't been in a travel with a companion before. A friend. The conversations in the middle of the journey, the moments when we have to wait for each other to cross the road. It will never happen if I travel alone.

So it was something.




Wallahua'alam.

Travel log 4.

Assalamualaikum w.b.t.


Today, I travelled to: Masijd ar-Rahman, University Malaya.


I was planning to go alone, even though I had asked my friends. I just could see the answer "no." And I've been right. I won't lie that it sadden me a little.


Little did I thought, I would go with a senior. A sister, if I have to mention.


The main reason, and truly, my intention was to attend "UM Berselawat." There's no doubt, it had been arranged by the students there. I had this calm feeling surrounding my heart when I said I am going to "UM Berselawat." It feels like, well, a pray. An honest pray that all of the Muslims in UM always remember our beloved prophet, Muhammad s.a.w.


I also noted that there will be two honourable guests, which are Al-Habib Najqmuddin bin Othman Al-Kirid and Al-Habib Ali Zaenal Abidin bin Abu Bakar Al-Hamid. I've never seen them, never had the chance to meet. Now they are close enough, I won't let the opportunity to fade away. I've always been taught to search for knowledge, to those who are knowledgeable, rather than to wait for it or them to come to me.


The program will start at 6 p.m.


I am planning to go with sis Aisyah at 5.00 p.m.


I cancelled my intention to go to UKM as the schedule clashed and I have no idea how to get back to CFS on time before 10.00 p.m.
It was heartbreaking to think I have to choose, but I fairly made my decision. InsyaAllah, I prayed that it would be the best decision.


I prepared myself, and I was a little in hurry. I just realised that I don't have any bag. Actually, I do have one. And that is CFS Ta'aruf bag. I silently thought why I haven't been a true girl and be girlish so I can have at least, one shopping bag. Or the kind of bag that is convenient for a girl. I looked around and realised I have no choice. I grabbed the bag, unpack all my Chemistry books and notes and I filled it with Bidayatul Hidayah, Ihya' Ulumuddin, Bekal Akhirat, Ratib al-Haddad, Al-Quran Translation and a note book. I also packed breads, a bottle of drink and telekung. I know I had brought a lot of books, but I felt really comfortable with all those by my sides.


Few minutes after the clock stroke 5, we were on our way to the gate.
We had to inform the guard our possibilities of coming back later than our curfew.
He asked when we expect to arrive, and I answered logically, 11.00 p.m.
The program scheduled to end by 10.30 pm.


When we arrived at LRT Station, we headed to the next bus. Alhamdulillah, we were perfect on time to catch the next bus and stopped a few steps from the mosque. I remembered my intention well and suddenly my eyes caught a glimpse of a small stall. I had to see what they were selling. The urge made me felt wrong, so I took a look away and registered. I immediately find a place to sit when I realised, I hadn't pray Tahiyyatul Masjid. It is not a common prayer for me, as I rarely been there. I felt disappointed  but there was nothing I could do. I already sat.


For those out there, do remember to pray before you sit in the mosque. InsyaAllah, you will be rewarded by Allah.


I decided that I would take a look at that stall, so I asked my companion to join me. She agreed.  I kept saying to myself to remember my intention well. I am not here to shop. When I finally had a good look at that stall, I realised that it had always been there, it was not the kind of open-only-for-the-event. So I stood in front of the stall a while longer, to see what's in it. The front of the stall was full with honey, and goat milks, and everything else. I hadn't been concentrating as my eyes were locked upon what was at the back at the stall. Books.


Books and al-Quran to be precise. I could differentiate by their thickness.


I tried to control my breath and asked, "Is the book for sale?" The shopkeeper, an old but wise man said yes. He invited me into the stall. I walked slowly.


As I reached the back of the stall, the area fit only for one person, I scanned through the books. The books were all covered in dust and every book on top had the sign of which people had read it. I guessed that would be the shopkeeper.


I don't care about the dust, I picked each book and scanned through it. "One book only," I said to myself. After a few minutes, even though I was quiet sure it was more than that, the shopkeeper asked if I will be needing a ladder. I gazed the books on top of the shelves and agreed to have the ladder. I thought for a second, if it was appropriate for me to climb such a ladder but the books hypnotised me. I climbed after the shopkeeper asked me to be careful.


I saw, a book by al-Imam Hujjatul Islam al-Ghazali, and I smiled.


The feeling was, well, unbearable. I was happy for that moment. Enjoying every single moment of it. Then I saw, the translation of al-Hikam. I knew at that moment, that was the book I have to read. So I brought it down, and said to the shopkeeper I'll buy it. He was kind of surprised to see the book in my hand. He asked, "al-Hikam?" And I shyly said yes. I paid for it and went back to the mosque.


I felt like my life had completed. Never mind the pain and suffering before, I had found most of the books I've longing to read. I still remembered my half an hour of searching Ihya' Ulumuddin at the library. Imagine to stand in front of thousands of book but you have to say sorry for you can't read them yet and find one particular book. I almost gave up. Alhamdullilah, I didn't.




The day doesn't end here, but my story will. I'll tell the rest tomorrow, insyaAllah. It had been a long day.




Wallahua'lam.

Remembering death.

Assalamualaikum w.b.t.








I closed my eyes, and memories flashes.


I opened both.
I can't breath, I tried to. Really hard.
I saw nothing but water, I was surrounded by them, and shades of light above me.


I remembered it clearly now, I was drowning.


For I know I can't swim, I try to push myself up to the surface.
But it was useless. No matter how hard I tried, it seemed that I'm getting nearer to the bottom of the pool.


I thought, "why on Earth would I separate myself from my family? They could have see me drowning and save me."
Then I knew the reason, I was separated from them because I wanted to.
I wanted to be alone.


But I never wanted to drown and die all by myself.


I tried to breath again, and I failed. Water came in instead of air.
I started to let go, letting my body to drift away, to sink.
I was too little, haven't been to school yet, and I was ready to die.
I closed my eyes.


And I felt a hand grabbed me, I survived.














I opened my eyes, and closed it back.


I wasn't a children anymore, I've grown up. I was 17.
I was in a vehicle, and I heard noises. It was loud for me.
Irritated by the loudness, I tried to figure out what had happened.
"Oh," I sighed.
I was in the ambulance.
They had sent me to the emergency room, and I was heading to the hospital.


I felt a hand holding mine. I felt like to push it away.
I don't like being touch.


Then I heard familiar voice, asking me to keep awake.
I hate this part also.
I wanted to sleep, to drift away.
How can I keep awake?


I remembered when they took my blood, without my permission.
I hate needles.
And they were saying things like how I shouldn't suffer and how much pain I was going through.
I hate to point the fact that it was me who was in pain.


I opened my eyes again.












This time, I saw CFS in front of me.
Standing there, in the lobby, when most of the students had left for holidays,
I stared in silence.
I walked along, and the breezes caught me.
It had been the wee hours of the night.
But I can't sleep.


Then it occurred to me, the strangeness of my behaviour.
I can't eat and now I can't sleep.
I read hundred of pages of books just to make me feel tired and yet, I rather read the book than sleep.
I haven't get enough supply of Ice Lemon Tea, perhaps that was it.
I drank plain water most of the days, if I don't help my self with a cup of Nescafe.
Then I hear echoes in my ears, saying caffeine is not good for your health.
I ignored it.


I am fine. Really fine. Remembering deaths is good, to remind myself that I won't breath air for long.
I am not running away, I had been prepared. For the last few months, since I was merely few years old. I had warned myself. It was just the warning I rarely have the guts to remember.






Wallahua'lam.

Keep me company,

Assalamualaikum w.b.t.


So I sit here, trying to type.
Whatever it is in my mind right now.


I had been better, but never been worse.




Alone, as usual. But this loneliness will stay until Monday. It's the weekend holiday plus the public holiday. I am everything, but thrilled.


I tried to eat twice today, as I made the decision to buy rice and veggies as usual, on my normal day. Yesterday hadn't been normal. I ate nothing, but slices of bread. No longer I had the strength to cry. I just don't know why, I couldn't eat.


So I forced myself to eat, when a friend stopped by. I know for a fact, my body will have to accept the food. My mind and my body both are playing games. The logic side of my brain will instruct my mouth to chew, forcing the food down my throat and fill my stomach. My body on the other hand will digest it. Enough protein for the day.


This is an act, I have to live with everyday. As long as there is someone near me, my mind won't let me starve to death.


But now I am all alone. For more than three days.






Let us change the subject.


Alhamdulillah, yesterday I had finally able to say, "Qabiltul Ijazah."
For Bidayatul Hidayah, written by al Imam Hujjatul Islam Al Ghazali r.a.
From al-Fadhil al-Murabbi al-Ustaz Muhadir bin Hj Joll.


Al-Imam wrote,
"Apabila engkau merasa cukup dalam setahun dengan hanya memakai sehelai baju yang kasar dan merasa cukup dalam sehari semalam dengan dua potong roti daripada tepung yang kasar dan engkau mampu meninggalkan kelazatan gulai maka pasti makanan yang halal itu cukup bagimu."


This is not the statement to make it the reason of why I wouldn't eat.
I won't blame nothing for the inability of my body to accept food.


But I want to point out a fact,
that we sometimes, had been spending more money on food that we ever thought.
I heard often enough, people sighing about money and yet they eat twice or thrice a day, full meal. I don't get it. It is not logic.


I used to, spend recklessly on food. As I thought, food is essential. It is a part of everyday life. There's nothing wrong to spend money on food. But it is. At least for me, right now. With Egypt in havoc, and not to mention the flood in Thailand and chaos all over the world, I couldn't... eat.


Last semester was all about fried chicken for me. I bought it every day if I could.
But this semester is all about half of the rice portion and veggies. Sometimes I did wonder if I can just buy the rice alone. I wanted to feel, what others felt. Not having the choice to eat, eventhough you are starving.




Wallahua'alam.

Masihkah ada persoalan?

Assalamualaikum w.b.t



"Dan katakanlah kepada perempuan-perempuan yang beriman supaya menundukkan pandangan mereka (daripada memandang yang haram), dan memelihara kehormatan mereka dan janganlah mereka memperlihatkan perhiasan tubuh mereka kecuali yang zahir daripadanya". (Surah an-Nur 31)


Saudari muslimahku,
kita sering diumpamakan seperti permata, atau sesuatu yang berharga. Kemuliaan kita sebagai seorang wanita terletak pada satu sifat yang utama, sifat malu. Lalu bagaimanakah sifat malu itu?

Malu adalah satu kata yang mencakup perbuatan menjauhi segala apa yang dibenci.[Lihat Raudhatul ‘Uqalâ wa Nuzhatul Fudhalâ' (hal. 53)] 

Begitulah definisinya. Jika kita sebagai wanita mempunyai sifat malu, maka kita akan menjauhi segala apa yang dibenci. Dibenci siapa? Pastilah dibenci Allah, dibenci manusia dan diri kita sendiri.

Dari Abu Mas’ûd ‘Uqbah bin ‘Amr al-Anshârî al-Badri radhiyallâhu ‘anhu ia berkata, “Rasulullah Shallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam bersabda, ‘Sesungguhnya salah satu perkara yang telah diketahui oleh manusia dari kalimat kenabian terdahulu adalah, ‘Jika engkau tidak malu, berbuatlah sesukamu.’”

Malu yang paling penting bagi wanita, adalah malu untuk menjaga maruahnya. Maka dengan itu, Allah menurunkan perintah untuk kita menjaga aurat. Tidak boleh dilihat sesiapa yang bukan muhrim, mahupun sehelai rambut. Bukankah sudah dinyatakan, balasan tidak menutup aurat itu dosa? Dan balasan dosa itu neraka. Sedangkan api di dunia tidak mampu kita sentuh dengan tangan, apatah lagi api di neraka.

Bukan tidak mengetahui bahawa dirimu cantik, akan tetapi, sebab cantik itulah anda harus menutupinya. Simpanlah untuk jodoh yang telah ditetapkan Allah untuk kita. Bayangkan betapa bahagianya kita jika seseorang menjaga dirinya untuk kita, begitulah perasaan bakal suami kita.

Jika tidak mahu menyentuh hal sebegitu, bayangkanlah kesan tidak menutup aurat kepada seluruh muslimin di dunia. Secara tidak sengaja, mereka juga menanggung dosa. Bermakna, bukan sahaja diri menjadi penghuni neraka, tetapi sesiapa yang melihat juga terkena tempiasnya.


Fatimah r.ha berkata :

"Seorang wanita itu lebih cantik daripada mangkuk yang cantik, wanita yang berpurdah itu lebih manis daripada madu, dan mendapatkan seorang wanita yang tidak pernah dilihat orang lain kecuali muhrimnya lebih sulit dari meniti sehelai rambut."

Bagaimana untuk menutup aurat? Pada pendapat diri, pakailah apa sahaja yang mencukupi kriteria, hanya menampakkan muka dan tapak tangan. Tidak kisahlah anda mahu memakai tudung labuh sehinggalah selendang. Asalkan labuhnya menutupi dada, asalkan tebalnya hingga tidak ternampak sedikit pun daripadamu. Asalkan tidak menampakkan tubuh badanmu. Biarlah orang melihat kita gemuk, kerana pakaian yang sedikit besar, tapi pandangan Allah itu lebih bermakna. Maka balasannya, insyaAllah syurga.

Islam itu mudah, maka hanya manusia saja yang membuatkan ia susah.

Dan siapa yang mahu membalas pernyataan ini?


Siapa yang menyatakan menutup aurat itu panas? Kita.
Tapi siapa yang menjadikan bumi ini panas? Kita.
Bukankah dahulu, suhu bumi ini tidak setinggi sekarang? Sudah terbukti bahawa asap-asap yang bermaharaja lela dicipta oleh manusia, dengan ilham dari Allah, telah membawa kerosakan kepada muka bumi. Siapa yang tidak sedar? Semuanya salah kita sendiri.

Maka adakah muslimah di negara padang pasir, yang memakai niqab sepanjang masa, menyebut keluh kesah mereka? Pernahkah kita mendengar mereka berkata, "aduhai, panasnya."? Tidak. Bahkan jika kita duduk di dalam rumah, tanpa menutup aurat pun kita sudah mengeluh. Kita sendiri yang mencipta kesusahan itu.


Malu dan iman senantiasa bersama. Apabila salah satunya dicabut, maka hilanglah yang lainnya.”
[Shahîh: HR.al-Hâkim (I/22), ath-Thabrâni dalam al-Mu’jâmush Shaghîr (I/223), al-Mundziri dalam at-Targhîb wat Tarhîb (no. 3827), Abû Nu’aim dalam Hilyatul Auliyâ’ (IV/328, no. 5741), dan selainnya. Lihat Shahîh al-Jâmi’ish Shaghîr (no. 3200).]

Jika kamu tidak malu dengan menutup auratmu, maka dimanakan sekelumit iman yang kamu katakan ada di dalam diri kamu? Jangan anda menjadi pendusta dengan kata-kata sendiri.






Saidatina Aisyah RA pernah berpesan, "Sebaik-baik wanita adalah yang tidak memandang dan dipandang". Jangan kau berasa bangga dengan kecantikanmu sehingga kau dikejar jutaan lelaki. Itu bukan kemuliaan bagimu. Jika kau berasa bangga, kau menyamakan dirimu dengan pepasir di pantai, yang boleh dipijak dan dimiliki sesiapa sahaja. Muliakanlah dirimu dengan taqwa, setanding mutiara Zabarjad, yang hanya mampu dimiliki penghuni syurga. melainkan mereka yang amat serius terhadap perkara itu dan menjaga batasan- batasanNya.




Wallahua'lam.
