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

SOCIAL ETHICS IN ISLAM

Let other people gossip about us instead of us doing the gossip.
Let other people slander instead of us doing the slander
Let other people be cruel to us, we simply forgive them.
Let other people ridicule us, we pray for them to see the light
Speak of something beneficial otherwise we better stay quiet
Remember other people good deeds, lets forget our own good deeds
Repay other people’s kindness, forget our own good deeds
Repay other people’s good deeds, forget their misdeeds
How good it is when we repay misdeeds with good deeds
O dear brothers and sisters, these are guidance for us
Make it as guidance in our social interactions
Crisis will not last long, animosity will not be prolonged
These are guidance for peace and harmony
Ladies and gentlemen, this is Islam providing guidance
For the safety of His servants in this world
Not available in other religions or any ideologies
Only in the true Islam
Thus, these are parts of ethics in social interactions
Let us together put them into practice seriously
Even when it feels heavy and tiring
The benefits are plentiful both in this world and hereafter

ARE YOU A REAL FIGHTER?

Are you a real true fighter?

You want to be a fighter, but you’re unable to face life trials,
You want to be a fighter, but you get spoiled by praises,
You want to be fighter, but you don’t fully accept leadership,

You want to be a fighter, but you’re not a very loyal friend,
You want to be a fighter, but you’re unwilling to sacrifice,
You want to be a fighter, but you wish to be a leader,
You want to be a fighter, but you’re ashamed to be a follower,

You want to be a fighter, but you don’t compromise,
You want to be a fighter, but you don’t want to accept challenges,
You want to be a fighter, but you’re not willing to sacrifice your health and rest,
You want to be a fighter, but you unable to face life trials,

You want to be a fighter, but you can’t bear your wife’s whims,
You want to be a fighter, but your marriage is a mess,
You want to be a fighter, but you don’t try to improve yourself,

You want to be a fighter, but you neglect your self discipline,
You want to be a fighter, but you take your promises lightly,
You want to be a fighter, but you neglect on love and care,
You want to be a fighter, but you neglect your guests,

You want to be a fighter, but you forget your wife and children,
You want to be a fighter, but you leave behind the knowledge of fighting,
You want to be a fighter, but you are harsh and violent,

You want to be a fighter, but you don’t align your thoughts,
You want to be a fighter, but you neglect in your remembrance of Allah,
You want to be a fighter, but you forget your faith and piety,

So actually what is it that you want to fight for??

COME TO ME, O MY SERVANTS

 

Image result for image bismillahirrahmanirrahim

Come to Me
O My servants!
Return to Me as soon as possible
I will still accept you, do trust Me
You are My servant, My creation
Being weak and careless is your nature
I want you to admit your weakness
Every time you are guilty, please come to Me
Confess your guilt, and cry before Me
As a sign of never ending remorse
Be aware,  O My servant
The grieving from the people who have sinned
Is what I love, more than My love from the prayers of the Auliya’s
Do not put off any more
No one is not guilty
You are a servant
I love people who admit that they are guilty
I  love those who are in repentance
O My servants !
Seek forgiveness from Me
I will still accept you
Am  I not your God ?
My love to you
Is beyond  the love of a mother to her child
This is Allah’s desire
To His  servants
As explained from Al Quran and As Sunnah

DO CONTINUALLY REFLECT INTO OUR HEARTS

Do continually reflect into our hearts
Because it is a source of good and evil
A receptacle for disbelief and belief
Something to be fought for between the angels and demons
The heart, its feelings is delicate
Its touch could not be felt
But it greatly affects our lives
Whoever is well versed with the journey of his heart
Understands its goodness and evilness
And seriously struggle to remove his evilness
And immediately replace it with goodness
That person will be safe from the trickery of the devil and the world
Many people do not understand the journey of their hearts including the scholars
They simply accept the good and the bad
And then to feel that everything is good
And no longer feels sinful
Here is where the need for guidance from a spiritual teacher
who knows the heart of human beings

MY REPENTANCE

 

O Allah, O Rabbi
Please listen to my weeping heart
I am Your unworthy servant
Please accept my repentance
I am Your wrongful servant
Please pardon all of my sins

You are Most Benevolent
You are Most Merciful
You are Most Forgiving
You are The One to accept my repentance

With my lament, please do listen to them
I am in misery over my sins
With my grievances, please do accept them
With my request, please do not let me be disheartened

I am in misery over my sins and state of shame
Over my immoral conduct
I seek with Your Grace
Please pardon all of my sins

I regret over my wrongdoings
Please accept my repentance
Please guide me
I have suffered, I have agonized
Let my fear be my shafaat in Hereafter

I express my sufferings to You, O Allah
You are The One to whom I confide my grief and sorrow
No one else can forgive
Except You, O Allah

You are Most Benevolent
You are Most Merciful
You are Most Forgiving
You are The One to accept my repentance

THE WORLD IS FILLED WITH CRISIS

The world is filled with all kinds of crises
There is no country which is free of crisis
Political crisis, economic crisis
Moral crisis, value crisis
Household crisis, social crisis
Racial, ethnic and tribal crisis
Life is full of fear, wherever we go there is concern
Peace and security no longer exist
Love and harmony has disappeared
Please wake up O religious scholars, leaders and intellectuals, to address the crisis
If is not a political crisis, it is a moral crisis
If it is not a social crisis, it is a family crisis
If it is not a value crisis, it is a tribal crisis
Would someone facing crisis be the one to handle the crisis?
Would the one causing problems be able to settle the problems?
Would criminals be able to get rid of crimes?
O Allah, please send the savior immediately
So that the world will be peaceful again
The ones available at present are all destructive individuals and criminals

KNOWLEDGE WITHOUT GUIDANCE

When knowledge is given
Without guidance
Even if there is guidance, it is incomplete
Human beings may succeed to become clever and competent people
They are developed in various aspects of life
Their living facilities are very comfortable indeed
Their material civilization are awesome
However, with the progress, there is jealousy
With luxury, kindness is missing
Human beings become arrogant, haughty and selfish
Human beings tend to show off, seeking for name and glamor
Humanity is ruined, tolerance is destroyed
Society becomes very individualistic
Crimes occur day in day out
Fraternity disappears, love and care is ruined
Finally, with progress and development, life is full of fear
With civilization, fear and anxiety invading daily
In the end, human beings lose their happiness
Therefore, knowledge should be simple, guidance must be perfect
If knowledge is abundant, while guidance is complete, that is the most favorable
At this present time, while searching for knowledge, guidance is neglected
As a result, many human beings appear to be very intelligent
But their personal character, more like animals and satan
Or the least, the way they live are liken to the trees in the forest.

MY HARDSHIP

Hardship in my younger days
Introduced me to the meaning of suffering
Such that I cannot hear of anyone suffering
I am inclined to help them
My mother’s death when I was a kid
Made me realize how sad it was to be motherless
I therefore sympathize with orphans
I wish I can entertain them
And make them happy
Hardship in my life
In all aspects of experiences
In the consumption of food and beverages
In my place of residence, in the clothes I wear
Made me sensitive to the suffering of others
Experiences in life
Gave me many lessons and guidance
Raised my consciousness and guilt
Very useful for the future struggle
Those are the benefits of higher education having eluded me
Due to hardship and persistent obstacles
But I had the opportunity to learn from life
From here I derive knowledge and experience

WHO IS THE REAL HERO?

Not everyone who has made a name for himself is a hero
Not everyone who has a name and glamor with many fans is a hero
A person who is strong is not necessarily a hero
A person who is brave is also not necessarily a hero
If everyone who is brave is considered as a hero
The bravest who kill himself
Is he considered as the best hero?
He is the most condemned!
He is the most unfortunate and disgraced!
Who is actually the real hero?
Is he someone who is able to swim across the ocean?
Someone who conquers the space?
The true hero as what our Prophet has mentioned
Someone who is willing to fight his own nafs
