SEEKING FOR THE TRUTH IS OBLIGATORY

Seeking for the truth is obligatory

It is the most valuable asset in two kingdoms

In both this temporary and in the permanent kingdom

There is only one truth

There is no second, there is no third and so forth

The truth only comes from Allah Taala who creates mortals

The truth is the colossal and the most noble achievement

It is the joy and happiness both in this world and hereafter

The truth is the path of spiritual and intrinsic in nature

But its fruits are visible within a beautiful life

Do seek for the truth, once achieved, do strive for it

If the truth is in the mountain, do climb it

If it is in the sea, do dive into it

If it is in the earth, do dig into it

If it is in the forest, do venture inside it

Seeking for the truth is extremely difficult and laborious

To strive for it is bitter but the end is sweet indeed

The journey is torturous but its result is heartening

If the truth is achieved do protect it desperately

With all the wealth, energy and soul

Hold on to the truth, do not let it go

Even though it is hot

WORDS OF WISDOM

A few basic acts of worship performed without worldly love are considered more significant than abundance in worship but performed with full of worldly love.

Generally, the truth is hard to put into practice but once observed it gives a fulfilling experience.
An evil act is easy to accomplish but it will never bring any spiritual contentment.

If the truth seems bitter for us to take, simply assume it to be a medicine. Most bitter medicine helps to cure illness, isn’t that so?

Hardships are necessary for guidance in our journey in life.

Many are aware of diseases but they do not know how to cure them. Many are aware of problems but they do not know how to solve them.

Human beings are well aware that beyond youth is old age. But during their youth they forget that old age will appear later on. They then spend their energy and time during their younger days as if their youth lasts forever. When old age appears, they regret and wish that they could return to their youth to redeem all the years they have wasted. Alas, their dreams are mere dreams, an endless regret.

To love our own self until we become too selfish means we are destroying ourselves but we do not realize the fact that we are the cause of the self destruction. Being selfish means we hate our own self without realizing it.

O Allah, I have two dreadful enemies, both are invisible i.e Satan and my own nafs. The closest enemy and the most dangerous is nafs which is within me. It is more dangerous than the condemned satan as it is the pathway for satan.
I seek Your protection against the evil deeds of my own nafs and satan. You are my Only Protector, please help me O Allah. Ameen

HISTORY SEEMS TO BE STRANGE

History shown to us seems to be strange
Most of the renowned Muslim figures were from those who have suffered
Many of the Muslim figures and leaders were from the poor group of people
Quite a number of them were orphans
Rasulullah, his name is famous, he was an orphan
He was also poor, and his enemies were everywhere
He was like a nomad, seeking refuge
But his success in bringing up the truth was unparalleled
Sayidina Ali, he was poor since childhood
He was not that handsome either
But his knowledge was abundant, he was remarkably pious and devout
His crusade was incomparable
His sacrifices and service for Islam were extensive
Imam Syafie, his name is famous
An imam mujtahid who was unmatched
His knowledge was abundant which become our heritage
His was significantly pious and devout during his lifetime
But who is he?
He was an orphan, his mother was poor
His life was like a nomad, moving everywhere
That was where his success that brought knowledge and piety
Look at the fifth mujaddid, Imam Ghazali
A renowned Sufi , a fiqh scholar and a philosopher
His knowledge is still being used to this date
He was a poor person
His father died before his adulthood

Knowledge Generate Civilization
Knowledge should be sought
Do not ignore and do not neglect
Once knowledge is obtained , it should be practiced
It will generate progress
Knowledge of faith , knowledge on development
These two knowledge should be intergrated
So that development achieved is rooted with faith
That was commanded by God
Knowledge is an asset
Its worth is better than money
With knowledge, one can achieve wealth
But with wealth, it does not bring knowledge
Without knowledge, there is no progress
How can we develop the nation
With knowledge, there is progress
With knowledge, the nation can advance
Progress needs to be developed
Development needs knowledge
A nation without any progress , they will forever be a disgraced nation
