Banyak lika liku di dalamnya.
Perjuangannya pun tidak ringan. La tahzan! Itulah kalimat yang sering dikeluarkan atas berbagai kejadian yang menimpa. Tanpa putus asa, mereka terus berjuang. Dan, inilah hasilnya. Melalui perjuangan keras, akhirnya mereka bisa, dan semuanya berbuah manis. Rasa salut saya pun tak ber Walaupun saya tidak ikut menulis, namun saya mengikuti proses pembuatan buku ini, dari awal sampai terbit.
Rasa salut saya pun tak berhenti di situ. Begitu buku terbit, semangat promosinya tak ala kadarnya. Ratusan buku mereka beli, untuk dijual kembali, juga dibagikan kepada orang-orang tertentu. Acara launching pun digelar di mana-mana: Bandung, Padang, juga berbagai wilayah Jepang.
Sepertinya, dalam sebulan, buku bisa laku karena ditunjang promosi dan distribusi seperti ini. Menjadi mahasiswa di luar negeri adalah impian banyak orang, termasuk para penulis di sini. Tapi, setelah hal itu tercapai, bukan berarti mereka hidup laksana di negeri mimpi, menikmati semua yang ada.
Kehidupan yang sangat keraslah yang mereka temui. Khoirul Anwar, yang sekarang menjadi asisten profesor di perguruan tinggi di Ishikawa, tidaklah mencapai semua ini dengan mulus. Ada masa yang sangat pahit, ketika dia harus mengajak anak istrinya menumpang di rumah orang yang mempunyai rasa belas kasih pada keluarganya. Guide the confused ones to your light and those that are astray to your guidance.
Possessor of Majesty. You are the Supreme Patron and an excellent Protector. Remove evil whispers from our hearts and replace them with light. Soothe burning hearts with the coolness of faith. Remove from us misery. You possess all that life has to offer.
Islamic Monotheism. Reflect on your powers of reasoning and remember those that suffer from mental ailments. Look at your healthy skin and be grateful that you have been saved from diseases that attack it. You have been given abundant favors. Consider the faculties of hearing and seeing with which you have been endowed. Notwithstanding warm bread. You think about what you do not have and are ungrateful for what you have been given. Would you sell your ability to hear and see for the weight of Mount Uhud in gold.
Should you take it lightly that you slumber soundly while misery hinders the sleep of many? Should you forget that you fill yourself with both delicious dishes and cool water while the pleasure of good food and drink is impossible for some.
Contemplate and be thankful. You are troubled by a loss in wealth. When Allah mentioned the affairs of the previous nations. Save yourself from the ghostly apparition of the past. Do you think that you can return the sun to its place of rising. Episodes of the past are finished with. Those who have a film purpose have filed away and forgotten occurrences of the past.
Do not live in the nightmares of former times or under the shade of what you have missed. Reading too much into the past is a waste of the present. This is because the past is non-existent. By constantly dwelling on the past and its happenings. Today is all that you have When you wake up in the morning. Live for today: During this day you should pray with a wakeful heart.
If every man and every jinn were to try jointly to bring back the past. With this attitude. Of old. Seek forgiveness from your Lord.
Organize the hours of this day. Yesterday has passed with its good and evil. Todav is all that. Be content with your sustenance. Everything on earth marches forward. Your life's span is but one day. In this day you should be balanced in your affairs. Today is my last day to live. Today I shall organize my house and my office. I will pay respect to the scholar. When you achieve this attitude.
Today I will try to help others. I will be meticulous in my neatness and balanced in my walk. I will stand side by side with the oppressed and the weak. I will not cry over you. Today is my only day. I will not be preoccupied about what is to. Today I will strive to be obedient to my Lord. If you have eaten warm. I will plant goodness into my heart and extract from it the roots of evil. You will not see me remembering you.
I shall not backbite. They will not be disorderly and chaotic. If you are truthful with yourself and have a firm. Then you say to yourself: Today I shall be refined in my speech and will utter neither evil speech nor obscenity. Today I will be particular about my bodily cleanliness and appearance.
Who knows. Qur 'an 2: For us to be engrossed in expectations about the future is looked down upon in our religion since it leads to our having a long-term attachment to this world.
Leave the [uture alone until it comes 33 come because tomorrow is nothing and has not yet been created. The important thing to know is that tomorrow is from the world of the unseen. Do you think it is wise to pick fruits before they become ripe? Tomorrow is non-existent.. Many people of this world are unduly fearful of future poverty.
Why should you have apprehensions about future disasters? Why should you be engrossed by their thoughts. Leave the future alone until it comes fiiThe Event [the Hour or the punishment will come to pass. Therefore their anger toward you can be attributed to you surpassing them in righteousness.
Since you Ire absorbed in the toils of today. How to deal with bitter criticism Those who are ignorant have uttered curses at Allah. You will always have to face criticism. In their eyes unless you are a transgressor whose wrongs cannot be atoned for so that you become stupid. As long as you shine. This result is exactly what they want for you. Beware of becoming unduly attached to future prospects in this world.
For that reason. And here is something you should contemplate: Until you escape from people by finding a tunnel in the ground or a ladder leading to the sky. Someone who has no clue as to when he wil. If you desire to be accepted by all and loved by all. If you are wounded by their words and let them have an influence over you.
Do not expect gratitude from anyone Allah. Do not expect gratitude from anyone 35 So remain firm and patient when facing their insults and criticism. Their disapproval of you only increases you in worth and merit.
Some people might even despise you and make you an enemy for no other reason than that you have shown them kindness. Tum away from them and do not feel distressed by their schemes. So do not be dismayed when you find that others forget your favors or disregard your kind acts. Qur 'an 9: And when the son became older and stronger.
The ungrateful person cannot really harm you: Perform acts of charity seeking Allah's pleasure. But when We have removed his harm from him. So be at peace if you are requited with ungratefulness for the good you have done. Rejoice in your knowledge that you will be rewarded from the One Who has unlimited treasures at His disposal.
We wish for no Qur 'an This is not to say that you should refrain from performing acts of kindness towards others: As I pointed out earlier. An act of charity is like perfume and the downloader. Give to the needy. If you suffer from depression. This is Rich. If you find yourself to be in difficulty or distress.
The Prophet bpuh informed us that the prostitute who once gave a handful of water to a dog was rewarded because the Giver of rewards is Forgiving. Help others in different ways for that deed with Paradise. Doing good to others gives comfort to the heart 37 Doing good to others gives comfort to the heart The first person who benefits from an act of charity is the benefactor himself.
The Prophet Blessings and Peace be upon him said: Even when you smile upon meeting others. I say this only because I sincerely wish for your betterment. During the period of waiting between drops. Being inactive means being negligent of one's duties. Idleness is an expert thief and your mind is its victim. And in doing so. Therefore get up now and say a prayer or read a book. Idleness is like the slow torture that is inflicted upon prisoners in China: He surely will be pleased [when he enters Paradisej.
You are unique none had been like you in the past and none shall be like you in the future. You are totally different from X or Y. Do nor be a mimicker 39 Destroy boredom by working. Cultivate your personality by following what is found in revelation. Look at farmers. Many are those that feign to forget their own voices. Among the consequences of such behavior are artificiality. Go forth according to your own nature and disposition. Do not be a mimicker Do not transform yourself into someone who you are not: When you apply this simple precept alone.
Your beauty and value is in preserving your natural state. The Prophet bpuh said: Your tastes and preferences are specific to you and we want you to stay as you are. Allah has decreed these matters to occur and the decisions are His. Our varied colors. If this belief were to be firmly ingrained in your heart. He inflicts him with hardship. When we truly have this faith.
If you have done all that was in your power. Do not think that you could have prevented the fence from falling. He does. The lost will find their way.
The pen has dried and with it has been written everything that will happen to you. All that has been preordained disbelieve. Therefore do not feel remorse over that which is not in your hands. You could not have prevented these things. Do not say. If you see that the desert extends for miles and miles. The days and years rotate. If you see the rope tighten and tighten. Give to the afflicted tidings of a sudden relief that will reach them with the speed of light or with the blinking of an eye.
Those that are slaves of the moment see only misery and wretchedness. This is because they look only at the wall and door of the room. He will guide me. With me is my Lord. Be you coolness and safety for Qur 'an Prophet Ibraheem Abraham may peace be upon him did not feel its heat because of the help he received from his Lord.
Tears are followed by a smile. And verily. When the fire was set for him. Therefore do not be in despair: You know it not. Imam Ibn al-Jawzi seven recitations of the Qur'an. The Prophet bpuh was compelled to leave Makkah. When Abi Dhu'aib al-Hadhali's children died before him. Convert a lemon into a sweet drink 43 Convert a lemon into a suieet drink An intelligent and skillful person transforms losses into profits.
Imam Ibn Taymiyah was put into prison. If someone were to hand you a glass full of squeezed lemons. Imam Ahmad ibn Hanbal was severely tortured and flogged..
They both squeezed.. Imam As-Sarakhsi was held as a prisoner. And if someone gives you a snake as a gift. France imprisoned two brilliant poets: If you have found Him. By supplicating to Him you are performing one of Qur 'an The optimist then stared at the stars and laughed. None has the right to be except Him. And if you lose your faith in Him. Is not He [better than your gods] Who responds to the distressed rjds not He [better than your gods] Who responds to the distressed one.
He saves the one who is drowning. I refer you to the books of the Sunnah.. He [better than. In them. Who He is Allah. Raise your hands in supplication. When you isolate yourself from things that divert you from Allah's obedience. J will respond to your [invocationjs Qur 'an He hears all and answers those who supplicate to Him. Place your forehead on the ground and mention His praises. The results are increases in faith. Take flight from such gatherings. Enough for Y01l is your home 45 the highest forms of worship.
If you are persistent and sincere in your supplication. Enough for you is your home The words 'isolation' and 'seclusion' have a special meaning in our religion: All ropes are cut loose save His. When you seclude yourself from evil in this manner. He is near. When you seclude yourself from evil and idleness.
Cling to His door. As for gatherings wherein frivolity and prevail. Hold your tongue from backbiting. Your recompense is with Allah When Allah. When you apply this advice. He compensates you with something better..
So use your time well and save your life from being wasted. By mixing with others based on foolish motives. Faith is life itself 47 Those that are afflicted in this world and are close to Allah will be praised in the highest part of heaven: And whosoever works hard here shall find ease there. Excellent indeed is the final home! The Hereafter is better and everlasting. What they perceive around them is this life alone: Because of this desire.
As for those who cling to this world. And it is they who are the guided-ones. The person who is afflicted with hardship should reflect upon the outcome in the Hereafter. They are always in a state of misery and anger. Inside it will be mercy. Paradise strong or weak. After centuries of experience. How base and mean is a life without faith! How eternally accursed is the existence enveloping those who are outside of the boundaries set down by Allah!
The best course of action that a confirmed atheist can take. At least by doing so. In fact.. And We shall pay Qur 'an Lord of all that exists. All praise is due to Allah and He is upon all things capable.
When a bee lands on a flower doing so for a practical purpose it does not destroy it. When you meet someone. Their mere presence in a gathering is a blessing.
Extract the honey hut do nor break the hive 49 The 'good life' that is mentioned in this verse refers to having a firm faith in the promise of our Lord and a steady heart that loves Him. There are certain personalities are like magnets.
Allah ordered the faithful believers to be patient at the time oj anger. These blessed people have a code of conduct entitled: Extract the honey but do not break the hive Everything that has gentleness in it is beautified. People who lead this 'good life' will also have calm nerves when afflicted with hardship. They are in a state of calmness.
Also give glad tidings to them of a great reward in the Hereafter. They forget evil that was enacted upon them and preserve the memory of kindnesses received. People in general. And there is no deed that gives such pleasure to the heart.
Allah loves the good-doers Qur 'an 3: And the Believer is he whom others trust. Allah ordered me to keep relations with those that cut me off.
Mention His praises. He is near when supplicated: He hears when He is called and He answers when He is invoked. His remembrance carries with it the meaning of total dependence upon Him..
We should not be surprised when we hear that people who remember Allah are at peace. Repeat His beautiful blessed name.. Read the various revealed texts that refer to the remembrance of Allah. What is truly surprising negligent and unmindful survive without remembering is how the Him. If you were to do this.
In doing justice to the disease of jealousy. The jealous person lights a fire and then jumps into it. How like a disease is jealousy. Everyone can be reconciled except the jealous one So Allah gave them the reward of this world.
Jealousy begets grief. I forbid both you and myself from jealousy. It is said that there is no repose for the jealous one and that he is an enemy wearing the garb of a friend. By being jealous of others. We seek refuge in Allah from the evil of the jealous one. The curse of the jealous one is that he contests fate and contends that his Creator is unjust. The jealous person shall remain in fury until the day he dies. Thus goodness.
The Prophet. Accept life as it is and adapt accordingly to all circumstances. Allah has willed for this world to be filled with two opposites: Accept hie as it is 53 poisonous snake. Accept life as it is The pleasures of life are short-lived.
You will not find in this world such things as the flawless companion or the perfect situation. It is necessary for us to make amends: So stay far away from jealousy and seek refuge in Allah from the jealous person.
Life means responsibility. You will not find a father. And Weput forth [many] parables for you Qur 'an How many tribulations patience? In the morning castles are bustling with inhabitants.
Do you not see the afflicted and the unfortunate? How many men and women have lost their dear children in the prime of youth? How many people are troubled or tormented?
Find consolation with those that are worse off than you. How many sick people remain for years while suffering from unspeakable pain? So praise Allah for His kindness.
You must also compare your difficulties with the difficulties of those around you. Life can be peaceful. They were afflicted with severe poverty.
Prophet Yahya John was slaughtered. Prophet Ibraheem Abraham was thrown in the fire. Many or tortured.. Prophet Zakariyah Zacharia was killed. The prayer you perform it sincerely with a wakeful heart this effect for you. You have a perfect example in the Prophet bpuh.
The entrails of a camel were placed upon his head. Prophet Moosa Moses was afflicted with great trials. The prayer. Seek help in patience and the Prayer. This generation. If we do not do this. Prayer is also a potent remedy for our sicknesses. Give us comfort and call for the prayer. As for those that keep away from the Mosque and away from prayer. By earnestly performing the five daily prayers.
I have read biographies of many righteous people. Whenever the Prophet bpuh was afflicted with hardship.
The Prayer of Fear which is performed during battle was prescribed in situations wherein limbs are severed.
This is because man was created weak and fragile. When Prophet Ibraheem Abraham was placed in the fire. No harm touched them. As a result. Allah made the fire to be cool.. When you incorporate these qualities into your character.. If you have meager means. Live your lives according to this precept: Allah Alone is sufficient for us.
When the Prophet Muhammad bpuh and his Companions were threatened by the impending attack of the enemy. Leave your home and remove the black blindfold from your eyes. During your journeys. Qur 'an 6: There is one activity worthy of mention here. Climb mountains. To isolate yourself to the confines of your own room. Leave your home and contemplate that which surrounds you. Travel in the land. Your room is not the only place in the world.
Then why do you surrender yourself to misery and solitude? Call out with your eyes.. But we must consider this. Through this constant conflict. Have the patience of one who is confident of forthcoming ease. Do you have an alternative solution? Do you know of any provision that is better than patience? Those that achieve greatness have to surmount an ocean of difficulties and hardships before finally achieving success.
This is the way of the noble-minded: Have patience. You have not created [all this without purpose. For truly. Patience is mostfitting 59 doctors Traveling recommend. Therefore be patient and know that your patience is on ly through Allah. Therefore go forth and find delight in traveling. Know that each time you escape a difficulty you will have to face another. Do not carry the weight of the globe on your shoulders In a certain class of people there rages an internal war.
I became amazed at the amount of patience they displayed. Those who are principled and are upon the true path are not shaken by hardship. And then. Some people have a heart that is like a sponge. Let the ground carry the burden of those things that happen. At a time of calamity. It is a war that results in ulcers or an increase in blood pressure.
P My advice to you is this: They are forever perturbed and vexed. But the reverse is true for the weak-hearted: Everything frustrates these people: Hardship fell upon their heads like the lashing of freezing rain and yet they were as firm as mountains.
The one who has such a heart is selfIt is troubled by the most insignificant of matters. The Qur'an relates to us some of their sayings: May mercy descend upon the weakhearted.
On the other hand.. Observe the Hypocrites and how weak they are in their resolution. Do not he crushed bv what is insignificant 61 possessed - he has finn faith and cool nerves. More truthful than this is the saying of Allah: And if it does not merit your energy and time.
And they lay not open. Therefore reflect on that which gives you cause for concern or anxiety. Their principal concerns are for their stomachs. This is an indispensable question. They but wished to flee Qur 'an And stay away from immoderation or from. They have no aspiration to higher principles or goals to keep them busy. It has been said. Such are the calamities of these people. Psychologists say that you should judge everything in proportion to its true value and then put it in its proper place.
They never once raise their eyes to a life of ideals and virtues. Some people are distressed day and night. They deviated from what their inborn instincts were telling them. Look at those that have obtained degrees from world-renowned universities. Be content with that which Allah has given you and you will be the richest of people Wealth. If you follow this advice. With them was a man whose concern was focused on a missing camel. On the contrary.
Be content with that which Allah has given you. Take from the example of the Prophet's Companions. Hence they were blessed in their lives.
If you are a seeker of happiness. Do not feel grief. His clothes were ripped. Al-A'mash was among the most famous scholars ofhadith in his time. In fact. Al-Ahnaf ibn Qays was famous among the Arabs for his singular level of patience. Their talents and abilities remain unused. He achieved that fame despite being emaciated. Certain educators go further than this by saying that you should imagine being contented with even less than you actually have now.
Dawood David was a blacksmith. He was not only a freed slave and snub-nosed. Here for you is a list of those who have shone from our Islamic heritage despite each being challenged by various disadvantages: Zakariah Zacharia a carpenter. Therefore your value is in your abilities. He was a freed slave. In Paradise is found that which no eye has seen. The most wise of people are those that work for the Hereafter.
And the most foolish of mankind are those that see this world as their eternal abode in it reside all of of the their hopes. The length of a tent in Paradise is sixty miles. They would listen attentively when they description. The rider travels under a tree in Paradise for one hundred years and yet he still does not reach its end. If you are hungry in this world. They are in a beautiful home.
Have we reflected at length about the description of the inhabitants of Paradise? Illness does not befall them. If you do this. They will be the most affected by insignificant lives that they lead.. Its rivers are constant. They wish for nothing to spoil them in their state of felicity. They see and think only of this impermanent life.
You will find such people to be the most grief-stricken worldly loss simply because they see nothing beyond all when faced with calamity. Were they to remove the veil of ignorance from their eyes. Whoever follows his desires will likely magnify the importance of any given situation.
The best course is the middle course. D' you who live in poverty. Therein will be thrones raised high. Exaggeration in our dealings with others is unacceptable. Whoever seeks happiness should be just. Since he lives in a world of exaggeration and imagination. He will feel jealousy and malice toward others. Living according to hearsay and superstition is prohibited in our.
Because overcome Religion. Do not follow false suspicion or the deceitful illusion of the mirage. If you do this.. And hate the one whom you detest in due moderation. Most Merciful Qur 'an In any given situation do not exaggerate mountains from molehills. Here is something you should try: Listen to the balance of love and hate as explained by the Prophet Blessings and Peace be upon him: Allah informs us that: And Allah has power [over all things]. Qur 'an 3: When they enter Paradise.
There is no real benefit to sadness. Despite what has been mentioned above. Sadness prevents one from action instead of compelling one towards it. The difference between the two is that if a bad feeling is related to what is going to happen in the future.
The Muslim must repel sadness and fight it in any way that is permissible Religion. The most beloved thing to the Devil is to make the worshipper sad in order to prevent him from continuing on his path. The heart benefits nothing through grief.
I se ek refuge in you from anxiety and grief. Both of them weaken the heart. And if the cause of this feeling concerns the past. So whenever one is overcome by grief and there is no way to avoid it.
This occurred when they remained behind during one of the Prophet's expeditions. When one feels sad because he was negligent in fulfilling the rights of Allah. Allah will make it an atonement for some of his sins. As for the hadith. As for the saying of Allah.
The verse also exposed the hypocrites. Therefore the good kind of grief is that which stems from missing out an opportunity to do a good deed or from performing a sin. Even if we were to suppose the hadith to be authentic. Whoever delves deeply into his life will know that he came to remove falsehood and to eradicate anxiety. And if the worshipper is tested by this trial.
If this were the case. Allah loves all sad hearts. And as for the alleged hadith.
He came to save our souls from destruction. So many indeed are the favors that were bestowed upon mankind through him Blessings and Peace be upon him. Allah forbade him from feeling grief over the actions of the disbelievers? How could he have felt griefwhen all the time his heart was filled with the remembrance of Allah. Not only is the hadith weak because of its chain of narrators. As for the hadith of Hind.
But he didn't search out for misery. How could he have been continually in grief when Allah had informed him that he was forgiven for everything guaranteeing his entry into Paradise and had protected him from feeling grief over matters pertaining to this life: He came to free our souls from the tyranny of doubt. Their yearnings. Those who incline towards extremes in asceticism also relate the following narration: The fact is that we have been ordered to seek refuge from sadness.
So if the hearts of the faithful grieve. Being sad is not encouraged in our religion 71 through patience. He makes that slave's heart that of a weeper. In this verse. This is contrary to the sadness of the evildoers. And ifhe hates one of his slaves.
As for those who have praised melancholy and have lauded its many virtues while claiming that our religion encourages it then they are very mistaken. Simply informing about something does not in itself signify either approval or disapproval of that thing. Allah says of his Prophet Israa "eel Israel:
