Yin and Yang

Yin and Yang is an important concept in Chinese community, and I don’t think that as Muslims, we can’t believe in that (Chinese isn’t a religion, it is a race). Just, we doesn’t tend to clarify that what we’re believing in is called “Yin and Yang”. It is only another term for “every things were made in pair” belief. At the end of today’s class, Lao shi told us about this concept and I, unconsciously had so much thoughts.

Yin and Yang, as the familiar figure that we often see; comprises of black and white. It is a symbol of perfection. Man – Woman; Earth – Atmosphere; Good – Bad; Love – Hate; and so on.

If we understand the nature of this world – everything were made in pairs; I think, life would not be as difficult as we expected. I believe, we came to know this law isn’t by Yin and Yang or from other legendary story or myth, it is in Al-Quran at the very first place, right?

Allah always mentioned in the Al-Quran about Heaven and Hell, Right and Left groups of peoples, Day and Night, Moon and Star and let us reflect on these amazing pair – hardship and ease.

It is beautiful that in every hardship, comes ease. No matter how tough your life is going to be, at the same time you will be experienced the ease.

Sometimes ( usually, most of the time), we often drown so much into the soreness that we overlook another bright side of something else. Ability to realize the existence of the easiness in that something else is a real cure; a cure for the wounded heart, and it provide us with another better path.

So, don’t worry for the difficulties that you have now, or things you can’t achieve for this time being. Allah already planned our road depending on how strong our feet can stand.

Again, for the perfection – with efforts come succeed, and with every cries has its own smiles. Everything is in perfect pair and each of them are completing each other.

We just need to spend some time to think and re-evaluate the rationality of our life events.

A reminder for myself, especially.

Bila Hati Tidak Merasa Apa-apa

Saat ustaz-ustazah dan murabbi-murabbiah berkata bahawa hati orang yang beriman itu jika mendengar nama Allah, hatinya jadi gentar.Takut.

Ya,engkau faham.

Tetapi kenapa engkau tidak berasa apa-apa?

Tidak berimankah engkau?

Majlis Islamik yang engkau hadiri. Kiri dan kanan engkau, semuanya menangis hiba,tangisan taubat.

Engkau bertanya sendiri, “kenapa aku tidak menangis?”, “ sudah sempurnakah aku?”

Kenyataannya, hati engkau tidak tersentuh.Masih, tidak merasa apa-apa.

Al-Quran.

Ya. Engkau baca,tetapi engkau tidak merasa apa-apa. Gelisah pun bukan, nak kata tenang, pun bukan.

Entah. Tidak merasa apa-apa.

Tahajud dan dhuha? Er,lama dah engkau ‘pencen’.

Sebabnya engkau tiada masa.Akhir-akhir ini, sungguh banyak assignment yang kena hantar dan hidup engkau terumbang ambing.

Engkau tidak merasakan cinta-NYA itu penting.Yang kau kejar ialah due date , exam dan pointer.

Hakikatnya, hati itu sudah tidak berasa apa-apa.

Hati itu ada,cumanya, ia tidak hidup dan subur. Kontang.

Sedar sahaja tidak berguna. Engkau sepatutnya mencari solusi untuk hati yang sakit seperti itu.Mungkin sudah tiba masanya engkau untuk mengambil satu masa,duduk dan bermuhasabah sendiri. Sambil baring-baring atau melihat alam, masa itulah engkau sepatutnya buat ‘post-mortem’ dengan hati engkau.

Kenapa hati seakan kering?

Kenapa dahulu air mata engkau selalu berjujuran merindui Nabi Muhammad saw tetapi kini, rasanya..biasa-biasa sahaja. Berselawat pun, itupun kalau ingat.

Astaghfirullah.

Engkau harus buat sesuatu. Hati itu tidak boleh dibiarkan usang dan hambar sebegitu rupa.

Tetapkan balik misi dan visi hidup. Tanya diri, apa yang engkau buat sehingga hati separah itu? Sehingga hati selalai itu?

Solat lima waktu pun di hujung-hujung waktu,baru engkau nak solat. Jadi, di mana kualiti solat dalam hidup engkau? Kadang, solat Subuh pun terlepas. Tahajud apatah lagi.

Engkau harus sedar yang disiplinnya manusia kerana solat. Kerana menjaga masa. Solat comes first then do your business. Rugilah manusia jika mendahulukan urusan dunia daripada membina bekalan untuk negeri sana.

Engkau harus rangka semula amal ibadat yang engkau ingin isikan dalam hidup seharian engkau seperti bacaan al-Mulk sebelum tidur, disiplinkan solat sunat dhuha dan istikharah, kerapkan membaca al-Quran dan terjemahan, puasa sunat, tahajud, maathurat dan sebagainya. Engkau buat seperti dulu-dulu. Satu jadual untuk engkau tick beserta kata-kata semangat yang membina.

Mula-mula, memang engkau akan terasa tidak biasa.Tetapi, engkau harus istiqamah dalam melakukan sesuatu perkara. Dalam sehari, tambah satu amal dan lama-lama nanti, engkau akan terbiasa melakukannya.  Jadikan waktu-waktu yang Allah berikan kepadamu sebagai waktu yang produktif. Mulakanlah mencari kawan-kawan yang boleh menasihati dan membimbing engkau.

Time passed.

Ala, baru dua tiga hari. Waktu terasa panjang? Haa..itu tandanya waktu kau berkat. Pernah terdengar bila kita berfacebook,waktu terasa cepat berlalu,tetapi bila kita buat sesuatu yang berfaedah, waktu seperti kura-kura.Perlahan merangkak! Maksudnya,keberkatan itu ada.

Berterusan dan tingkatkanlah amalanmu. Banyak berdoa supaya dilembutkan hati dan banyak membaca terjemahan al-Quran dan berfikir. Engkau akan terkejut dengan hati engkau yang mula basah dan lembut. Hati yang kontang itu akan perlahan-lahan disirami dan disuburkan.

Mendekatlah kepada Allah kerana hidup ini, jika bukan kerana Allah, ialah sia-sia.

First step is really matter.

Finally!

Bismillah.

Alhamdulillah. All praise to Allah that I have given a chance to live again. I mean,live and breath with something new.But not sure what is new,but there’s something. Something new inside me.

Got a message about my new group of usrah and I am really happy since I heard a lot of happiness were “born” through usrah.

Last semester, I did involve in usrah. But, shame on me, I cant make my time for it due to my endless programmes and works. Until then, I felt that I MUST spend a plenty of time for me to refresh myself,renew and strengthen my imaan besides to fill up my heart with HIS knowledge.

This semester, InsyaAllah, I will put the usrah on my top priority. This is the time to build my self up.

I’m in much jealousy when seeing my fellas and sisters are very fluent in memorising Al Quran. Once you memorised HIS verses, life is getting beautiful. Difficulties will be seen as a romantic way of HIM. For that, I should start memorising too.Step by step,insyaAllah.

May Allah ease everything for me, and you too.

Ameen ya Rabbal’alamin.

Its time to tighten up the distance.

Ramadhan. Its ended.

Bismillah.

Today is 3 Syawal. Alhamdulillah, it has been 3 days since Syawal started. But, yet I’m still feel the “aura” of Ramadhan. Such a warm feeling!

The beautiful voices of Imam and the crowded masjid – made me really want to meet Ramadhan again.InsyaALLAH. I pray for my next Ramadhan.Amiin.

Blessing. Allah showered us with a lot and a lot of blessing in Ramadhan and the biggest bless HE gave is bless of doing ibadah.

Some people totally change in Ramadhan and carry it along to the following months ; some just do change in Ramadhan and continue to follow their nafs And for sure, I wish to be the first group.

Even Ramadhan is just ended do continue your good deeds. I once read a wisdom quote,

 ” People always collect things to decorate their home,but forget to collect good deeds to decorate their graves”

As this blessing months is just passed, of course syaitan back in business! Huhh.

So, Prepare and Strengthen your iman and taqwa!
