Email from Anand asking about certain religious matters? Part 1

In the name of Allah, Most Compassionate, Most Merciful.

Assalamualaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh.
Peace be upon you with the Mercy and Blessings of Allah!

Dear fellow Children of Adam Alaihis Salam.

Brothers and sisters,

I have received another email. This one is from Brother Anand. He asks about why Allah has created people who are evil even when Allah Himself the All Knowing God knows well in advance about the nature of such of His Creation even though they have been given a chance to change their lot in life?

Here are the contents of Anand's email :

hi mahaguru, i have some doubts in religion. i have asked many religious leaders, but their answer is not convincable. i hope you can guide me.
1. let say one guy died as a criminal or kafir. he will go to hell right ? since god already know ( all knowing god) he will die as a criminal / kafir anyhow, why god let him born in first place ?
( i think all knowing god should know this guy will not change even though chances to change was given)
2. as i read evil created by god and ordered to obey human. but evil did not follow gods order. my question is before creation of evil, how come god doesn't know evil will disobey HIS order ?
please dont answer as;
1.logical mind can't be used to understand this.
2. it is beyond human capability to understand.
because all the religious leader give me the same answer.


May peace be upon you brother Anand.

Thank you for emailing me your questions. I see that what you ask here borders on matters that concern Tawheed Al Rububiyyah. The Oneness of the Lordship of Almighty Allah.

It is sad that those whom you asked have yet to satisfy you with the right or acceptable answers.

Do know that what I am going to answer you with here is totally from my Islamic point of view and thus will be based upon my Islamic faith.

Please get your answers from my blog because I consider your questions worth publishing in my blog and my answers ought to help clear the air about the issues which you have raised that I think will also be beneficial to help others get the true picture about such matters.

Thank you.

Dear Anand.

Your first question is :
1. let say one guy died as a criminal or kafir. he will go to hell right ? since god already know ( all knowing god) he will die as a criminal / kafir anyhow, why god let him born in first place ? ( i think all knowing god should know this guy will not change even though chances to change was given)

My answers :

I have heard many others raise the same questions that you have asked here before. Only thing is that back then, I had no idea about the internet for I was then not a blogger but just a Da'ee @ Caller to Islam, based at the Masjid Kapitan Keling, City of Georgetown, Penang Island.

I answered those people right there and then and didn't have the luxury of owning a computer as I do now or even had owned a digital camera to record such interactions.

Nevertheless, today, Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala has graced me with such necessities and made me able to share with you what I have come to learn about these very things and am about to disclose here for the benefit of all others who might have these same questions brewing in their minds and troubling their hearts?

Alhamdulillah! All praises be to Allah, Lord of all Creation and Supreme Master of us all.

You ask as to why Allah the Almighty God created someone whom Allah Knew very well that he will die as a criminal or as a Kaffir in the very first place?

Good question!

Nah, I won't answer using those two standpoints that you mentioned earlier about religious leaders telling you that logical mind can't be used to understand the issues you raised or that it is beyond human capabilities to understand them?

Why would Allah create anything that will raise His Wrath or Anger?

Now, such a question is not something to be ignored or disregarded as the questions from a demented person or a raving lunatic!

No sirree! This is a solid question. Asked by someone who is using the mental faculties that Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala gave him in the first place!

Now, let me try share with you what I have come to learn about the subject.

We all know that each and every thing that is before us is all created by Allah. Not an atom or micro anything has come to be on its own, both here in this planet and the zillions of other creation all over the universes.

This here is our planet which is called Earth by us using the Knowledge that Allah the Almighty gave to our Father, the Prophet Adam Alaihis Salam and from him to our Mother Sayyidatina Hawwa Radhiallahu Anha and so on to their offsprings and henceforth to our forefathers.

When Allah creates something that is liked, pleasing and loved by Him, we tend to agree and understand as to the reasons for its creation?

But why did Allah create evil?

Many ask this without fail! Why did Allah create all the nasty, useless, worthless and despised creation as well? Just like your reference to the criminal or the Kaffirs?

We must not forget the so called origin of Evil @ Syaitan, the Devil, Iblees, Lucifer, etc.

From what I have come to learn is that Syaitan used to be called 'Azazil' the Chief of the Djinns up there in the Yaum al Jannah @ Paradise @ Sorgam.

Allah the Almighty surely knows all about His Creation. If he were to create something like Man, surely He will need to create Man's counter entity. These were the Djinns.

Verily Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala will not have created anyone or anthing in vain?

Allah has time and time again decreed that verily Syaitan is but Mankind's enemy!

I bring forth to you a verse from Surah Yassin Chapter 36 Verse 60 that has Allah the Almighty warning us Mankind about Syaitan :

60. Alam aAAhad ilaykum ya banee adama an la taAAbudoo alshshaytana innahu lakum AAaduwwun mubeenun

60. "Did I not enjoin on you, O ye Children of Adam, that ye should not worship Satan; for that he was to you an enemy avowed?-

Now what I am going to say next might not go well with some but I dare say that for us to keep blaming Syaitan for each and every mistake that we humans do out of our own free will is just not fair to the accursed one!

I mean surely Allah Azza Wa Jalla knows well in advance that if He was to create Adam, our Father as His Vicegerent here on Earth, He, Rabbul Alamin will need to have a reason to expel Adam Alaihis Salam and our Mother Sayyidatina Hawwa Radhiallahu Anha from Paradise so that they may consummate their union as husband and wife and henceforth populate and fluorish this vast expanse of the Earth with their offsprings?

Allah will surely have it all in His Master Plan to have created Evil in the form of Syaitan pending His Creation of Adam up there in Paradise. Adam was created by Allah with Earth taken using force from the Mother Earth by the Angel Sayyidina `Iz'rail Alaihis Salam who was later appointed as the Malaikatul Maut by Allah!

This was Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala acknowledging `Iz'rail's triumph in succeeding where all other Malaikat's of Allah failed in that arduous task of gathering earth from all parts of the Mother Earth which refused to give up its earth for fear of Allah's Jahannam @ Hellfire which will burn up both man and stone plus the djinns when they go against Allah's Will!

Reason I am elaborating here is to give you the fuller wider picture and perspective as to why I say that anything and everything that has taken place is in accordance to exactly what Allah the Almighty has decreed and willed it to be and all that is taking place right now as well as all that will be coming later in the future?

In my studies about the question that you have posed to me, I find several references from the verses of the Holy Qur'an which are relevant to the subject matter.

In Surah Al An'am Chapter 6 Verse 148, Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala tells us to ask those who dispute with us as to His Oneness :

148. Sayaqoolu allatheena ashrakoo law shaa Allahu ma ashrakna wala abaona wala harramna min shay-in kathalika kaththaba allatheena min qablihim hatta thaqoo ba/sana qul hal AAindakum min AAilmin fatukhrijoohu lana in tattabiAAoona illa alththanna wa-in antum illa takhrusoona

148. Those who give partners (to God) will say: "If God had wished, we should not have given partners to Him nor would our fathers; nor should we have had any taboos." So did their ancestors argue falsely, until they tasted of Our wrath. Say: "Have ye any (certain) knowledge? If so, produce it before us. Ye follow nothing but conjecture: ye do nothing but lie."

Brother Anand,
Your question dwells on the contention of what we humans tend to think of Allah as what we humans will weigh upon our likes and dislikes?

Our values and our system of good against evil does not come into the realm of the Creator. He the Creator set forth a perfect balance in His Creation.

When He creates beauty, He has to create its opposite ~ ugliness. So is the same with His creating Good ; He has to create Evil to be a balance so that there is both an exact opposite of another?

This is me speaking based upon my human logic.

There is always something contrary to it, be it anything that we can comprehend, see or contemplate upon?

If we are alive right now, there will come a time when it is our moment to die.

Allah in His Infinite Wisdom chose to create us for a reason.

We are all born pure, free from sin. It is our parents or those who became our guardians who raised us as either Hindus, Jews, Zoroastrians, Christians, Buddhists, Sikhs, Taoists, Animists, or as Muslims?

No one is born to be a sinner, Brother Anand.

We choose to be this or that!

The criminal or the Kaffir decides as to whether he or she remains as one or moves on to become a Believer in Allah?

In Surah An Nahl, Chapter 16 Verse 35, Allah reveals to us what the Musyriks say :

35. Waqala allatheena ashrakoo law shaa Allahu ma AAabadna min doonihi min shay-in nahnu wala abaona wala harramna min doonihi min shay-in kathalika faAAala allatheena min qablihim fahal AAala alrrusuli illa albalaghu almubeenu

35. The worshippers of false gods say: "If Allah had so willed, we should not have worshipped aught but Him - neither we nor our fathers,- nor should we have prescribed prohibitions other than His." So did those who went before them. But what is the mission of apostles but to preach the Clear Message?

Sadaqallah hal adzhim. Truthful is Allah the Most Powerful!

You see Brother Anand,
As humans, we are given the faculties of reason by Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala to determine what is right and what is wrong for us?

We have not been left to our own devices by our Creator per se.

Allah Azza Wa Jalla has been sending to us Mankind, prophets and messengers totalling more than 124,000 of them starting with first our Father the Prophet Adam Alaihis Salam who was taught by Almighty Allah himself with all the knowledge and faith that he our Father Adam needed to know?

As Allah's first creation @ prototype of being the first Man, what faith do you think Adam was taught by Allah, our Creator?

Would Allah have taught Adam to worship and glorify something else than Him? Surely not, right?

But that is Allah! Most Compassionate, Most Merciful.

Although He could if He wanted to, have created us to be as one race, same all over, all goody goody, law abiding, servants of Allah, where would there have been challenge?

What good would that do for anyone?

The criminal or Kaffir that you quoted as an example above surely have a choice, don't they?

Don't you?

You have the right to worship your true Creator and not something else that is either created by the hands of Man himself or imagined to be?

God describes Himself clearly to us Mankind through His Revelations in the Last and Final Testament to all of us including you that is the Holy Qur'an.

Although the language that God chose to reveal it is in Arabic, the language spoken by the Arabian people, the forefathers of the Final Messenger of Allah, Muhammad son of Abdullah, we can still learn it by using translations of the meanings of the Holy Quran or study Arabic ourselves?

Where there's a will, there'll definitely be a way, Anand!

The root answer to your 1st question is that Allah the Almighty did not create either the criminal or the Kaffir to be permanently as they chose to be!

It is a matter of self determination of each and every person here on Earth.

I choose to be a Muslim.

I was born as an Indian Muslim in a Malay kampong.

I got Islam free of charge. I was blessed to be able to grow up in an environment conducive of living life as a Muslim.

Different cases for different people. Just like yourself and all other human beings here on Earth.

When I was young, I was just like any other kid or child. I went to school, studied, returned home, did my chores at home, then played and learned to pray.

Have you seen 'Lat the kampong boy' cartoon series?

My life was pretty much like that, growing up in post Colonial days. Datuk Lat captured beautifully, the essence of my kampong life as it happened.

Islam is a Way of Life, Anand. There are plenty of do's and don'ts in my faith. I'd be lying to you if I said that I was living a perfect life as a Muslim from the start!

No way. Just like any other young kid and later man, I did my fair share of bloopers which I'm not proud of?

Don't have to air my dirty laundry here so to speak, but I come to think of those times as my own Age of Ignorance @ Alam Jahiliyyah.

But as I got older, I started to learn more about my Islamic faith and when I first got married to a woman who has 2 sons from her first marriage, I became an instant father to those boys who are now grown men and married!

Teaching those boys to be good Muslims required me to be one in the first place. A good Muslim, I mean.

So, I started to delve deeper into my faith and started learning from all the Ustaz's and Mursyid's that I could meet up with and spent many hundreds of days and nights seeking `Ilm from the masters and spiritual syeikhs of my home island State of Penang and at times even went to parts of Seberang Perai, Kedah and Perak to learn about my faith.

I joined the Tariqah al Naqsyabandi and learned about the spiritual side of my faith in depth from my Sufi Masters.

When I saw certain practices not in line with what I had come to learn about the true Ways of the Prophet Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam, I slowly withdrew myself from the over excesses of the ones who seemed to go overboard in their devotions and hero worshipping of the Sufi syaikhs.

I'm not saying that I'm better than anyone there but I have a choice and I'm exercising that choice to be on par with what I hold to be the right way of Islam.

Allah loves us Anand ; that's why He has made our paths cross. Not to say that I'm the right man to guide you but Insya Allah, I will do all that I can within my scope to help you out with the understanding about what Allah is and what He definitely is not by sharing with you here all that I have and am continuing to learn from all reliable sources.

Let me share with you what I have come to learn of Allah's Will (Masyi`ah) and Allah's Likes (Mahabbah).

Some folks tend to generalize Allah's Will with what He likes, is content with and His Love. To the uninitiated ones, such a blanket assumption unearths more difficulties and raises more grievances about the subject for it depends on one's level of understanding about matters that at times borders between the physical and spiritual realm and acknowledgement of it when it comes to discussing matters concerning the Creator?

One needs to know how to differentiate between what Allah needs to allow something that He Dislikes and to be magnanimous enough to allow whatever that He Doesn't Like to take place?

It also boils down to the matter of us who are humans to be content with what Allah Has Decreed upon us and as to whether we turn out to be His Grateful Servants appreciating all that He has blessed us with or to choose to be complainers and griping ingrates for the whole period of our lives?

Mankind always tends to gripe and snipe, bemoaning their misfortunes often overlooking all the benefits and privileges that Allah the Almighty Has Showered upon us!

In the Surah Al Asr Chapter 103 Verses 1 to 3, Almighty Allah reminds us as to the consequences of us choosing to be in Loss compared to the fate of those who remain patient, obeying Allah and strive continuously to improve themselves?

1. WaalAAasri

1. By (the Token of) Time (through the ages),

2. Inna al-insana lafee khusrin

2. Verily Man is in loss,

3. Illa allatheena amanoo waAAamiloo alssalihati watawasaw bialhaqqi watawasaw bialssabri

3. Except such as have Faith, and do righteous deeds, and (join together) in the mutual teaching of Truth, and of Patience and Constancy.

Brother Anand,

I can keep going on and on about the free will that Allah gives us as to choose our destinies whether we prefer to go to Hell or Heaven?

We decide as to whether we choose to be a do gooder or be a vicious nasty criminal?

We choose as to whether we pray to and worship the True Creator or a figment of our imagination?

We decide as to whether we are a Believer or otherwise?

Allah has already sent to us our Manual of Instructions as to how best to live our short temporal lives here on Earth?

It is up to us to choose wisely and to prepare for the hereafter.

We can't feign ignorance anymore.

We are living in the Age of Science and Technology. From the comfort of my home, I am able to reach out to you and all others using the internet to share the truth about these matters but it is entirely well up to you as to decide how best that you are going to use and digest all these morsels of information that I am putting up here?

Use your commonsense and listen to your heart! Insya Allah, you will get to learn about the Truth of Islam.

To be continued with more answers pertaining to this. Insya Allah!

End of Part 1.

Salam tuan,

Betullah apa yg tuan perkatakan. Jawapan yg tepat untuk Anand. Dahulu semasa zaman jahiliah saya juga selalu berfikiran kenapa Allah SWT menciptakan aku kalau aku hidup untuk berbuat jahat semata2. Bukankah dia telah mengetahui akan kejahatan aku?

Akhirnya baru saya sedar yg manusia diberi pilihan. Baik atau Buruk, kita pilih. Itu semua bisikan syaitan untuk menyesatkan kita. Semoga Allah mengampuni dosa kita semua.

Selalulah berdoa, walau sebesar mana dosa kita sekalipun, pengakhiran hayat kita nanti hanya satu sahaja yg diharapkan iaitu RAHMAT dan BELAS KASIHAN ALLAH SWT. Itu shj yg boleh menyelamatkan kita di Alam Satu Lagi.


MAHAGURU58 said...

Wa'alaikumsalam Nizam.

Memang kita diberi pilihan. Samada mencari dosa atau pahala.

Namun penjelasan saya ini dianggap terlalu panjang lebar oleh seorang pembaca yang mengirim komen menyatakan begitu.

Soalnya bagi kita umat Islam mungkin telah sedia maklum akan keadaan perkara tetapi jawapan saya ini adalah untuk perhatian Saudara Anand kita yang memang tak ada asas kefahaman Islam, bukan?

Saya memilih untuk menulis panjang lebar demi mentarbiyyah mereka yang memang tidak ada sedikit pun akan kefahaman Islam atau tahu tentang Qada dan Qadar Allah!

Jadi saya harap barangsiapa diantara pembaca yang merasa penjelasan saya terlalu panjang atau tidak menepati citarasa mereka untuk membuat pilihan?

Samada membaca dan mengikuti penjelasan meleret saya atau melayari sahaja mana mana laman yang mempunyai intipati sesuai dengan citarasa mereka?

Apa kah Nizam setuju dengan pendapat saya begini?

syauqi_x said...


hmmm, lari dari tajuk sket...apa pendapat saudara mahaguru58 bila zahid hamidi kata tarian gadis berpakaian seksi satu 'kebudayaan cina'?

kawan-kawan saya yang berbangsa cina semua marah dengan kenyataan 'matlamat menghalalkan cara' zahid hamidi ini, kata mereka sejak bila pula gadis berpakaian seksi menjadi budaya cina?

kata mereka lagi, selain dari menghina orang cina dengan kenyataan dangkal seperti itu, kalau menari dengan pakaian seksi itu bukan budaya mana2 kaum, cuma budaya UMNO sahaja!

tolong beri penjelasan, memandangkan sejak kebelakangan ini saudara mahaguru sering mempromosikan zahid hamid et al sebagai orang yang memperjuangkan Islam!


MAHAGURU58 said...

Wa'alaikumsalam syauqi.

Hehehehe....inilah dia yang dikatakan 'terperangkap dengan keadaan diluar kawalan' sahabat saya Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi, Menteri Agama kita.

Soalnya syauqi, memang apa yang berlaku itu diluar kawalan atau perancangan Datuk Seri Zahid,kan?

Lainlah kiranya Datuk Seri Zahid itu yang mengelolakan majlis sambutan MCA itu.

Saya bukan hendak menegakkan benang yang basah ke apa?

Saya memberi pendapat saya berdasarkan apa yang saya nampak didalam video yang syauqi maksudkan!

Memang tidak tepat kenyataan Datuk Seri Zahid bahawa itu adalah kebudayaan Cina.

Menari ala ala gitu kalau tak salah saya adalah tarian didalam kelab kelab malam dan tidak ada kena mengena dengan kebudayaan Cina.

Itu hakikat.

Budaya tarian seperti yang diadakan oleh pihak MCA ini lebih kepada budaya 'funfair' dimana pihak penganjur menjemput penari penari sebegini untuk menarik perhatian masyarakat Cina tempatan dikawasan kawasan luarbandar untuk mengisi rancangan mereka mengumpul derma untuk tujuan keperluan masyarakat mereka didalam Malaysia ini.

Ianya tidak berkait dengan masyarakat atasan kaum Cina. Ini selalunya melibatkan orang orang Cina Malaysia yang berpendapatan sederhana dan rendah.

Saya membesar di kampong Melayu terakhir bersempadan dengan kampong Cina di persisiran laut Jelutong Timur, Pulau Pinang.

Kampong Cina tersebut @ Jalan Tokong Batu @ Cheor Tau Kong, selalu mengadakan majlis majlis sambutan budaya tempatan mereka seperti ini.

Terutamanya semasa 'Festival of the Hungry Ghosts' mereka.

Didirikan pentas besar dan diadakan persembahan Opera Cina saban malam dan diselang selikan dengan tarian moden begini.

Maka ramailah pengunjung Cina dari segenap pelusuk pulau datang bertandang menyaksikan segala persembahan begini.

Datuk Seri Zahid mungkin menyatakan demikian tanpa memikirkan akan perbezaan kebudayaan Cina sebenar dengan budaya masyarakat Cina di Malaysia ini.

Ada beza besar diantara kedua corak dan gaya budaya tersebut.

Budaya Cina sebenar adalah amat halus dan kaya dengan nilai warisan asli dari Negara Cina.

Budaya 'funfair' ini adalah budaya kelas bawah yang tidak ada nilai seninya dan hanya mengeksploitasi wanita.

Jadi pada pendapat saya, tidak harus kita menyalahkan Datuk Seri Zahid semata mata diatas kesalah tafsiran beliau.

Ia juga manusia biasa seperti kita.

Yang perlu kita persalahkan adalah urusetia majlis tersebut yang saya kira terdiri dari pimpinan parti MCA tempatan!

Tak kan lah kita hendak mengharap Datuk Seri Zahid pula yang pergi meneliti akan isi program majlis orang lain?

Apa kah itu sebahagian dari tugasannya?

Sepatutnya pihak MCA yang sudah hidup berpuluh tahun dikalangan masyarakat Melayu Muslim Malaysia lebih peka bahawa tidak sesuai diadakan acara menari ala kelab malam begitu bila mereka mempunyai perancangan untuk menjemput seorang Menteri Kerajaan!

Menteri Agama pulak tu!

Jadi usahlah beriya benar hendak menyalahkan Datuk Seri Zahid sahaja diatas kekhilafan pihak MCA terbabit!

Bayangkan syauqi berada didalam keadaan Datuk Seri Zahid pada majlis tersebut?

Sebaik sahaja bermula acara tarian yang tidak sesuai itu, sebaik sahaja sedar keadaan itu tidak sesuai untuk ditonton, maka syauqi bingkas bangun pergi meninggalkan majlis tersebut kerana hendak menjaga status dan imej syauqi sebagai 'Menteri Agama'!

Besoknya heboh satu Malaysia menyatakan Menteri Agama biadap, tidak menghormati parti MCA dan tidak menghormati tuanrumah, dsbnya!

Natijahnya apa?

Berlaku permasa'alahan dalaman diantara parti parti komponen BN.

Datuk Seri Zahid boleh dikatakan berada didalam keadaan dimana beliau tidak ada kuasa pengawalan keatas aturcara majlis orang lain!

Didalam sibuk kita hendak mencari keburukan dan kekhilafan seseorang terutamanya seperti Datuk Dr Haji Ahmad Zahid Hamidi yang bertugas sebagai Menteri Agama, jangan kita lupa bahawa Mursyidul Am PAS juga pernah berada didalam majlis majlis anjuran masyarakat Cina tempatan diamana dihidangkan arak dan makanan haram dimajlis mereka dimana dijemput Tuan Guru sebagai tamu kehormat mereka!

Apakah Tuan Guru boleh menghalang Cina Cina tersebut supaya jangan makan minum benda benda haram bilamana ia berada disitu?

Tak kena bukan?

Serupa itu lah juga keadaan dan nasib Saudara Menteri Agama kita ini.

Sudah cukuplah kita ini yang beragama Islam mengadu domba meneropong buntut orang lain mencari salah dan silap mereka!

Saya berani jamin pada syauqi dan seluruh masyarakat Malaysia bahawa sudah pasti kita akan dapat cari seribu satu kekurangan pada apa dan siapa sahaja sekiranya kita hendak mencari keburukan dan ketidaksempurnaan itu!

Sebaliknya jika kita hendak mencari kelebihan dan kebaikan seseorang atau sesuatu benda itu, Insya Allah, saya berani jamin juga bahawa kita sudah pasti akan dapat melihat kelebihan seseorang atau sesuatu benda atau keadaan perkara apa sahaja!

Yang Maha Sempurna adalah Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala jua.

Dipagi Jumaat ini, saya berseru kepada anda sahabatku syauqi dan sekelian umat Islam seMalaysia supaya mengambil iktibar dari kejadian kejadian ini dan ingat bahawa diri kita semua ini tidak lah sesempurna mana!

Ada kalanya kita akan menjadi mangsa keadaan dan bukanlah kita semua ini maksum benar dan sesuci Rasulullah Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam!

Saya bersahabat dengan Datuk Seri Zahid semata mata kerana Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala.

Niat saya hendak membantunya menjayakan program program Dakwah fi Sabilillahi Ta'ala.

Ada perancangan kami yang saya sedang siapkan demi usaha Dakwah al Islamiyyah!

Barangsiapa hendak berburuk sangka terhadap ikhwan kami ini harus ingat akan dosa fitnah kerana ianya lebih merbahaya dari dosa membunuh manusia atau apa apa makhluk yang bernyawa!

Apakah kita ini yang mengaku Muslim sudah tidak ada kerja lain dari asyik saban hari dan waktu mencari kelemahan dan kesilapan saudara seIslam dengan kita semata mata?

Celik mata sahaja dipagi hari dah berhasrat hendak mencari salah silap orang lain padahal yang mengata orang itu mungkin lebih buruk dan terok perangai didalam ertikata sebenarnya?

Sudah berdiri dihadapan cermin bermuhasabah diri kah para pencaci dan pengeji sekelian?

Apakah terasa diri sendiri itu suci sesuci embun diwaktu pagi?

Bawa bawa beristighfar dan bertaubatlah kita sekelian sekiranya sedar bahawa diri kita yang hu ha sibuk mencari salah silap orang lain hanya bersifat bagaikan 'Ayam kokok berderai derai ; ekor sendiri bergelumang tahi!'

Seandainya terasa diri itu suci tidak berdosa sama sekali, maka saya tumpang gembira bahawa dizaman ini, ada auliya auliya suci maksum sekali ditanahair kita.

Mahu saya berkenalan, menuntut ilmu dengan makhluk suci mulia tersebut.

Jika ada, harap emel lah kepada saya, insan yang tidak sesempurna mana ini.

La haula wala quwwata illa billah hil aliyyil adzhim bil sulthanik!

Tidak ada kuasa dan daya selain dari Allah yang Maha Perkasa !

Wabillahi Taufik Wal Hidayah!

Wassalamualaikum Warahamtulillahi Ta'ala Wabarakatuh!

Selamat menunaikan Solat Jumaat!

Semoga ianya dapat mensucikan hati hati kita yang tidak lah bersih tara mana!

Amin! Ya Rabbal Alamin!

Terima kasih untuk penjelasannya!

MAHAGURU58 said...

Wa'alaikumsalam syauqi.

Saya bersyukur bahawa saudara syauqi telah nampak akan kedudukan perkara sebenar dimana saudara kita Datuk Seri Dr Hj Ahmad Zahid Hamidi itu adalah seorang insan sama sahaja seperti kita cuma ianya ditakdirkan menjadi seorang ahli politik berjawatan Menteri yang dipertanggungjawabkan mengendalikan Hal Ehwal Agama Islam didalam tanahair kita ini.

Suasana gejolak politik dewasa ini bercampur baur antara memperjuangkan kepentingan agama Islam, memelihara kedudukan orang orang Melayu yang beragama Islam dan mendaulatkan Kesultanan Melayu Muslim yang berperanan menjaga Kesyumulan Islam di Malaysia ini.

Sepertimana kita semua sedia maklum Duli Duli Tuanku Sultan Sultan dan Raja Melayu kita sekian lama ini tidak sempurna memelihara dan menjaga Daulah dan Maruah Ad Deenullah selama pemerintahan Baginda Tuanku sekelian mungkin kerana diri Baginda Tuanku sekelian tidaklah sebegitu tinggi penghayatan dan pengamalan ajaran ajaran Islam dikalangan kerabat Tuanku sendiri?

Namun, sebagai rakyat yang bernaung dibawah payung kebawah Duli, tidak wajar kita semberono terperangkap dengan permainan politik dan kemarukan gila kuasa politik semata mata sehingga terburu buru bergolok gadai akan nasib dan masadepan umat Melayu Muslim setanahair dengan kita, lantas mahu menderhaka dan menghancurkan institusi Kesultanan Melayu seMalaysia ini.

Menteri seperti Datuk Seri Dr Hj Ahmad Zahid Hamidi ini sudah semestinya mempunyai musuh musuh politiknya dan sering menjadi mangsa percaturan politik dan agenda mereka yang berkepentingan mencantas kerjayanya demi menurut perasaan hasad dan dengki mereka terhadap kenaikan kedudukannya kini sebagai salah seorang dari Naib Presiden Parti Kebangsaan Melayu Bersatu @ PEKEMBAR ataupun UMNO.

Maka sudah begitulah nasibnya akan sering dipantau dan diteliti sepanjang masa ia bertugas sebagai seorang Menteri Kabinet Kerajaan Malaysia.

Ada sahaja yang akan diperkatakan tentang beliau sehingga silap haribulan jika terlepas angin semasa berada dikhalayak ramai pun akan disensasikan dimuka akhbar keesokan harinya bahawa Menteri Agama kentut semasa sidang itu dan ini!!!

Amat berat sekali beban menjadi manusia yang dipertanggungjawabkan menjaga urusan Ad Deenullah didalam negara kita ini ya syauqi.

Sama sahaja keadaannya jika yang berkuasa itu Mursyidul Am PAS sekalipun!

Kita tak nampak akan stres yang ditanggung oleh mereka yang berkuasa ini!

Bilamana kita hampir dengan mereka, tampak betapa hebatnya tekanan dan kesan senantiasa diperhatikan orang ini pada wajah wajah mereka yang sebenarnya tidaklah sebahagia mana menjadi pemimpin!

Sebab itu lah maka Nabi Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam tidak memberi jawatan kepada mereka yang datang meminta pangkat itu dan ini dari Baginda Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam semasa hayat Rasulullah!

Didalam Kitab Hadis Bab Ahkam. Bab 2 Hadis # 2200, Rasul Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam dilaporkan oleh Abu Hurairah Radhiallahu Anhu sebagai telah bersabda :
" Kamu akan ingin berkuasa dimana kedudukan kamu itu akan menjadi satu punca penyesalan di Hari di Bangkitkan Semula Sekelian Manusia @ Yaum al Mahsyar!"

Sadaqa Rasulullah!

Kuasa dan tanggung jawab kedudukan duniawi ini tidaklah menjanjikan kebahagiaan didalam kehidupan kita yang sementara ini.

Ada baik dan buruknya jika dikaji dengan teliti.

Seorang rakyat biasa seperti kita bebas kesana kemari tanpa diambil peduli akan sesiapa?

Bebas kita duduk makan minum diwarung dan dimana sahaja tanpa perlu senantiasa tangkap ayu atau glamor!

Sebaliknya jika berkedudukan seperti itu dan ini, maka sudah tidak boleh diterima masyarakat jika kita berpakaian biasa makan diwarung tepi jalan!

Bahagia apa macam itu?

Entah lah!

Mungkin disebabkan saya ini orang biasa maka dirasa sebegitu?


Alhamdulillah, sepanjang penghidupan saya ini, saya sudah diizinkan Allah makan minum dimana sahaja!

Dari gedung bertaraf 5 bintang sehingga makan nasi bertabur garam sahaja!

Semua sudah saya nikmati.

Saya tidak cemburu dengan mereka yang hidup serba mewah sebab saya tahu ada diantara mereka yang hidup kelihatan mewah tetapi hati nya sering gundah gulana raplah jingga memikirkan akan nasib diri keesokan hari?

Kita redha sahajalah dengan apa yang Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala rezekikan kepada kita tetapi kita juga harus berusaha memajukan diri dan menjaga kepentingan Agama, Bangsa dan Tanah Air kita dari dirampas oleh musuh durjana kita!

Insya Allah!

Bersangka baiklah sesama kita ; Insya Allah kita kan selamat!

Saudara Mahaguru,

You write very long. A one line question is replied with 10 paragraphs reply :-D

Tentang isu zahid ni, saya tak nak komen tentang apa yang dia cakap. Cuma saya ingin highlight kes Eli Wong dulu. Masa kes itu berlaku, ramai orang terutamanya dari orang cina, etc kata "She is a chinese, she can do whatever she wants". Jadi persoalan saya ialah adakah budaya cina juga membolehkan wanita mereka melakukan seks bebas (dan luar nikah)?

Orang politik memang macam tu. Bila sesuatu kena pada mereka, mereka akan bagi macam-macam alasan. Bila kena kat lawan, mereka hentam habis-habis.

Politic in malaysia is full of double standard

MAHAGURU58 said...

Hahahahaha...Grand Marquis...

Can't help it bro! Too much to be shared...

I'll try to keep it short n sweet but sometimes one just has too much to keep just to oneself.

Thanks for the response anyway! :)

Ades said...

Assalamu alaikum bro Zainol and good day to you Anand,

That was the same question asked by the angels to Allah The Most High when he said He would create vicegerent (i.e man) on earth.

"Behold, thy Lord said to the angels: "I will create a vicegerent on earth." They said: "Wilt Thou place therein one who will make mischief therein and shed blood? - whilst we do celebrate Thy praises and glorify Thy holy (name)?" He said: "I know what ye know not." Surah Al-Baqarah: 30

So what was the reply of Allah The Most High? He said you don't know what I know!

In another surah of Quran, Allah SWT says that He created man and jinn solely for the sake of worshiping Him.

"I created the jinn and humankind only that they might worship Me" Quran 51:56

So our purpose in this insignificant world is to worship Him alone (without ascribing any partners to Him).

In numerous surahs of Quran Allah tells us that He has given us intelligence so that we may think, ponder and find our Creator. We have been given intelligence (aql) not without a purpose! Instead the sole purpose is so that we find the right religion and find Allah!

As for those who deny the signs of Allah and stubbornly stick to their man-made religions then Allah is clear. He says in numerous ayats of the Quran that they will abide in Hellfire forever!

So, if we summarize, every person is given intelligence (aql) to think and decide. They are also given freewill, they can do whatever they want but their actions come with consequences and these consequences are ultimately Hellfire or Paradise.

So arguments aside, it's up to every individual to decide their own fate. You won't be arguing on the Judgement Day... On that day only Islam will save you, and only "La ilaaha illa Allah..." (there is no god but Allah) will save you.
