DO NOT BE GRATEFUL ONLY OVER MISERLY FAVORS

Are we grateful with all of Allah’s favors or blessings ?
Even if we are grateful,
But with the little favors
We are grateful over miserly favors,
Which we put efforts in and the ones that we request
Probably we are grateful with the promotion that we received,
Maybe because of the wealth that we achieved
At times maybe because of our children or because of our good health
Why are we grateful with Allah Taala with His bestowals that are too miserly?
But have we ever felt grateful with Allah because of the faith and Islam that we received?
Have we felt grateful with the blessings of our existence by Allah?
Faith and Islam, favors that are beyond comparison
Our existence that we did not ask for
is also a great favor from God
Why do we not see how magnificent are the blessings of faith and Islam?!
Why didn’t we think of being grateful to God, for our existence in this world?
In fact we don’t feel anything about faith and Islam
We do not even think of our existence as favors or blessings
We see wealth as something that is great
Position and status that we see as huge and awesome
The small things we see them as big
The big things we see them as small
If we can’t even recognize favors or blessings
When we can’t even value favors or blessings
What more with God
Whom we have not yet recognize

THE BATTLE BETWEEN TWO WOLVES

Image result for bismillahirrahmanirrahim

 

The battle inside us is liken to a battle between two wolves,
One of whom is evil, full of anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, hypocrisy, self-pity, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority and ego.

The other is good, full of remembrance of Allah, faith, joy, peace, love and compassion, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity and truthfulness.

Which wolf will win the battle?

THE ONE THAT WE FEED !!

Watch your thoughts; they become words
Watch your words; they become actions
Watch your actions; they become habits
Watch your habits; they become character
Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.

 

GOD IS MOST KIND

God is Most Kind ,

He does not punish the disobedience of His servants instantly

God allows them to be on their own first

God is giving them a chance to think, to be mindful and to realize

God make them see with their own eyes various incidents

Incidents which are either positive or negative to make them heedful and realize

Or God is punishing them little by little

or occasionally on them so that they understand

After going through various lessons and yet they still do not realize

God will then suspend all the pleasures and grace

Like a sudden death, prolonged paralysis , heavy  misfortune

Disarray in the family , where there is no love and affection between them

Or God just leaves them without being punished

After they are gone, only then they will be punished severely

Punishment like a painful death, sufferings in the grave , torment in the Field of Mahsyar ,

and the peak of all sufferings is Hell

Do take note of this narration

While we are still alive, we still do have time to conceive and correct ourselves

The time is not yet too late

Do return quickly to God

Do fear Allah and love Him

Do love and care for each other among mankind

What more among our own families

Once we have departed, the door to all opportunities for us to correct ourselves is closed

Do be sensible and realize from now before it’s too late

WHAT IS IT THAT WE OWN?

What is it that we own?
Everything there is
All belong to Allah
There is nothing that we own
We only put in our efforts

Whatever that we get
Allah has prepared for us
We belong to Allah
This world is His creation
We can own anything
It does not miss to be one of His creations
What is it that we own?

There is nothing that we own
We simply make efforts
With what is already there
Why are we arrogant?
To own what belongs to Allah
Why are we not shameful?
Towards Allah the Owner
We should be grateful to Allah
Who gives us everything
We should be shameful towards Allah

To own belongs to Him
We should not feel proud
Whatever that we have
If Allah do not give us
We do not have anything at all
We should not bring up the past

To bring up our good deeds of the past
Our good deeds with Allah
In reality, all do belong to Allah
Let us be grateful
Instead of feeling proud
Feeling grateful towards Allah

We should not bring up our good deeds of the past
We should make use of the benefits and pleasures from Allah
To serve Him
Then we should simply forget them
So that we will not bring it up again

LOOKING AFTER OUR HEART IS WEARY INDEED

To look after our heart is weary indeed
Even when we are cautious
When people praise us, our heart blooms like a flower
When people look down on us, it is painful like we are being poked or stabbed with a dagger
When we do good deeds
We feel excited and very eager to share the stories
We feel depressed when the stories are not shared
There is glamour
There is name
O, how unfortunate if the stories are not shared
While giving a speech, we notice the audience nodding their heads
“I am quite good actually!” the heart whispered
When seeing someone else with special abilities
Ouch! It feels like swallowing a bitter fruit
The heart wrinkles extending to the face
Or the face turns sour like vinegar
When seeing friends with weaknesses
The heart feels excited to gossip or ridicule
Ouch! It is very difficult to look after our hearts
Ouch! Where is sincerity
And yet, God’s view is at our hearts

O ALLAH, WE HAVE FAITH IN YOU

O Allah, we have faith in You
At times when we turn away from You, please remind us
When we are kneeling before You, please put sincerity in our hearts
So that our worship will gain Your acceptance
At times when we are under trials and tribulations, please strengthen our souls
So that we are calm and composed while undergoing the tests
So that we do not sacrifice our own faith
During those moments when we are in comfort
Do not make us turn away from You, so that we feel grateful
Please instill in our hearts feelings of love and fear for You
So that we do not love and fear anything else but You
Please make us joyful by remembering You
You are what we need most
Please do not leave us
You are our life and death
Please guide us always
So that our life and death,
we will receive Your redha or acceptance

MIRACLES WITHIN A HUMAN BODY


I seek protection with Allah from the condemned syaitan.

In the name of Allah the Most Compasionate Most Merciful.
Wa ash-hadu an Laa ilaaha ill-Alláh, wahdahoo laa shareeka lah, wa ash-hadu anna Muhammadan‘abduhoo warasooluh”

Praise be to Allah, the Compassionate, Who made known the Qur’an, Who created man, and taught him utterance.
We praise Him and we seek help from Him. We ask forgiveness from Him. We repent to Him; and we seek refuge in Him from our own evil and bad deeds. Anyone who is guided by Allah, he is indeed guided; and anyone who has been left astray, will find no one to guide him. May peace and blessings be upon the noblest of prophets, Muhammad SAW, who was sent to be a mercy for mankind.
I bear witness that there is no god but Allah, the Only One without any partner; and I bear witness that Muhammad, SAW, is His servant, and His messenger.

Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem

Awwalam yaral insanu annaa kholaqnahu min nutfatin faizaa huwa khosimum mubin

” Is man, then not aware that it is We who create him out of mere drop of sperm whereupon, lo! he showed him – self endowed with power to think and argue.” ( Yasin : 77 )

Fal yanzuril insanu min khuliqa

”Let man, then observe from what he has been created.” ( At Thoriq : 5 )

Wafi amfusikum afala tubsirun

” Just as there are signs within yourselves, can you not then, see?”

Dear members of congregation,
Today, please let all of us seek and see the miracles which Allah has bestowed within ourselves. Within your body, Allah has filled it up with miracles.
If you observe closely and if your soul is alive, also if your mind is playing its role, you will certainly realize that within yourself, it is full of miracles and wisdom. In fact within you, physically and spiritually, it is the source of all things. It the source of wealth both for this world and Hereafter.
With various parts of your body, they are the source of knowledge and experience. They are also the source of enjoyment and happiness, the source of wealth in this world in material form and in physical progress. Your physical and spiritual body are also the source of iman and taqwa which will bring wealth in Hereafter.

Your body is the source for you to know God, the Creator of the universe and your own self. Your body is the source of all goodness in this world and Hereafter.

Within you is a source for research. At your body, there are verses from verses of Allah. Here you can see the power and wishes of Allah Taala. You can see His Greatness and His governance. You can feel His knowledge.

Within you, you can feel God’s grace and pleasures. If you realize all the things mentioned above, ouch! You will be really embarrassed with God, you will really feel lowly about your own self. You feel eternally grateful, you will have love and fear towards Him. You will be conscious of God, your feelings for God may never be forgotten. Wherever you go, you feel that you are a mere humble servant who truly needs God’s protection.

Ya Ay-yuhal-latheena ‘aamanut taqul-laaha, wa qooloo qawlan sadeedaa. Yuslih-lakum a’maalakum wayaghfir lakum thunoobakum, wamay yu-til-laaha warasoolah, faqad faaza fawzan atheemaa.”

O You who believe, – Be aware of Allah, and speak a straightforward word. He will forgive your sins and repair your deeds. And whoever takes Allah and His Prophet as a guide, has already achieved a mighty victory.

Man first created from clay and that his seed was made from a drop of despised fluid.

That he was created from a handful that Allah collected from all parts of the earth, so that it contains the good and the evil, the easy going and the intolerant, the liberal and the miserly. It was Jibreel who took this handful, then it as fermented until it turned to mud, then Allah fashioned man as He deemed fit. Then He breathed into him o His spirit, so that he was a human of flesh and blood, talking and reasoning…Later on Allah had His angles prostrate themselves before man, and taught him names of everything.

That he was blessed with intellect, knowledge, understanding, eloquence and speech.

That he was privileged with the quality of modesty.

That he was privileged with the two means of expression, the oral and the written.

That he was endowed by Allah with the power of acquiring knowledge by several means

That he was distinguished with certain motives and impulses that serve to accomplish what is good for man.

That man was distinguished with strength, desire and will.

That Allah’s commandments are to be permanently observed until the day the man meets His our Lord

That man was not created without purpose.

That man is distinguished from the other creatures in appearance and shape.

That man is an indivisible whole: composite of soul, mind and body


Have we ever spared a little moment in our lifetime to ponder over this reality?

Before a grain of cooked rice appear before us, the entire machinery of God’s government use up their energy to produce the rice. If we do realize this, we will not have the heart to degrade even a single grain of rice.

Let’s us follow the journey of a single grain of rice which is God’s creation, until it becomes a grain of cooked rice. The farmers or the farm workers spread the millions of padi seedlings in their nursery, the padi seedlings which have already existed hundreds of centuries ago, it has not yet gone through extinction. On which day and on which date this seedling was sent down to earth, only the Creator knows. Every single day the farmer, the farm workers who are mostly poor, water and look after their seedlings.

In fact behind this , under Allah’s command, the angels are the ones who protect and take care of the growth of these plants, which is a fortune from God for human beings. God commands the roots of padi plants… Move along!!..Creep along!!.. Break them down!!.. The gravels of soil in My earth turn into fine granules. The mineral molecules and water creature… OBEY as commanded, with ABSOLUTE LOYALTY in service, flowing through earth, seeping through the roots without any questions asked.

The MIRACULOUS sun, which has never shut off its light, ever since it was created, emits its sunshine over the green leaves, for the sake of photosynthesis the invisible oxygen molecules in the air, are also being drawn in by the green creatures for its respiratory process. Time which is God’s creation, then allows the padi fruits to ripen, to be reaped as its harvest.

Thousands of farmers or workers who manage the machines used in the fields, in the factories, the staff handling the logistics for transport, the warehouse, the supermarkets, the retailers, all of them are God’s creatures who helped to deliver even a single grain of rice to us. Have we, as Allah’s servants, ever ponder over a scoop of rice on our plate, where does it come from, who planted the seeds into the earth…and so on and so forth?

Whenever there is food spread before us, we should feel humble, being thankful towards God, recite a du’a for all the farmers, fishermen, vegetable growers, the shopkeepers, the cooks and everyone who helped to provide this pleasures to us.

How Most Kind Allah is to us. Indeed, no matter how wealthy a human being is, he is incapable of living alone by himself.

SUNNATULLAH @ ALLAH’S LAW IN FORCE

Night and day are in succession constantly
Morning and evening come and go
This is Sunnatullah, Allah’s law in force in this world
No one is able to hold and prevent
This is Allah’s power and His ability
So that humans feel concern and be conscious
So that humans fear Him
In fact human beings need God
Difficulty and comfort are also in succession
Sickness and health are similar too
Pleasure and pain come and go
Human beings should learn from all these events

THE DAY OF JUDGEMENT

Be prepared for the day
when everyone thinks for himself
No one to help defend
Each person becomes his own defense lawyer
All the witnesses whether good or bad
are his own parts of the body
At that moment his mouth is locked
Eyes, hands, and feet will reveal their stories
Nothing will be left untouched
Nothing will be hidden
Everything will be exposed even a single speck of dust
Time spent in this world
All actions, words and heart feelings are recorded
All notes taken will be filed
During the court session in front of Rabbul Jalil, all will be revealed
All of our work that we have forgotten will be remembered again
Everything will be screened on God’s tv in front of us
Where can we run to?
There is no where to hide
Everyone will look through their good and bad deeds
After that Allah Taala the Fairest Judge will make His decision
Some go to Paradise some go to Hell
Everyone will be satisfied, including the ones who are imprisoned in Hell
