A Little Note on Sunday
Assalamualaikum wr wb!
Hello medium! in this post I’ll share something that I’ve been gained from Dr. Aam Amirudin (at Majelis Percikan Iman). If there’s any wrong, please don’t hesitate to correct me :)
6 Things that can damage our qalbu
- Habitual : Do a lot of sins, and hoping from taubat.
- Get a lot of knowledge but never practice it
- Charity without ikhlas
- Consume a lot of rizki from Allah but never be grateful
- Never ridho with Allah’s provision
- Frequently see people die, but never take lesson from it. For the shaleh one, mortality sufficient to become a life advice.
All above can arise when we forget Al-Quran. There’s 5 benefits in realm for people who have faith toward Al-Quran :
- Get Allah’s love (QS Al-Maidah : 54).
— O you who have believed, whoever of you should revert from his religion — Allah will bring forth [in place of them] a people He will love and who will love Him [who are] humble toward the believers, powerful against the disbelievers; they strive in the cause of Allah and do not fear the blame of a critic. That is the favor of Allah ; He bestows it upon whom He wills. And Allah is all-Encompassing and Knowing (5:54)
Allah only give the best for us. Inconvenience precisely can be given to people who have Allah’s love in order to make them closer to Allah. So, when they be stricken with musibah, they only pray, hoping it’s part of Allah’s love.
2. Allah will give rahmat to them (Rahmatullah) (QS Az-Zumar : 63).
— To Him belong the keys of the heavens and the earth. And they who disbelieve in the verses of Allah — it is those who are the losers (39:63)
Rahmat is Allah’s affection which can lead our sins be pardoned. Example in one Majelis, where Allah’s verse recited, there’re malaikat who’ll transfer rahmat from Allah to people. Aamiin.
3. Get hidayah from Allah (Hidayatullah) (QS Asy-Syura : 52–53)
— And thus We have revealed to you an inspiration of Our command. You did not know what is the Book or [what is] faith, but We have made it a light by which We guide whom We will of Our servants. And indeed, [O Muhammad], you guide to a straight path (42:52)
— The path of Allah , to whom belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth. Unquestionably, to Allah do [all] matters evolve (42:53)
There’re 5 types of Hidayatullah : in the form of instinct (Wijdan), in the form of sense (Hawwash), in the form of mind, religion : Islam, and taufiq (strength to practice religious guidance).
4. Receive a glory from Allah (QS Al-Isra : 79)
— And from [part of] the night, pray with it as additional [worship] for you; it is expected that your Lord will resurrect you to a praised station (17:79)
A glory from Allah can be achieve if we always do “ikhlas” Tahajjud.
5. Winning the competition in ourselves ( QS An-Naziat : 40–41)
— But as for he who feared the position of his Lord and prevented the soul from [unlawful] inclination (79:40)
— Then indeed, Paradise will be [his] refuge (79:41)
The competition in ourselves is between jasmaniyah (negative) and ruhaniyah (positive), as fitrah in human. So, when our qalbu have been attached with Al-Quran, we win that competition.
