It has been a long time since i last blogged..it has been a long time since i last share...
Few days ago I just finished reading chapter 5 to 8 of Manhaj Hidup Muslim..what a great sharing of the WORDs of God..some of what Abul 'Ala Al Maududi wrote really touches my heart..the style of writing was quite... (hmmm.. i dunno how to describe..hehehe) romantic i guest. But still the message was clearly delivered..
He wrote with a deep thought on what is Kalimah Tayyibah (refering to La Ilaha Illallah)..its significance in our life..in this world and hereafter..why does it matters. why believing ALLAH and his Messenger matters..
have we ever reliased how strong the believers should be whenever they believe in La Ilaha Illallah, Muhammad Rasulullah..ALLAH said the words are like a GOOD TREE with firm root and branches grows up high tili reaches the heaven..I see strength. I see hope. I see great lives in such comparison..don't you?
أَلَمْ تَرَ كَيْفَ ضَرَبَ اللَّهُ مَثَلًا كَلِمَةً طَيِّبَةً كَشَجَرَةٍ طَيِّبَةٍ أَصْلُهَا ثَابِتٌ وَفَرْعُهَا فِي السَّمَاءِ
Have you not considered how Allah sets forth a parable of a good word (being) like a good tree, whose root is firm and whose branches are in heaven, (24)a GOOD TREE which yields fruit in every season..and good fruits of course. Meaning beneficial and useful all the time..that's how believing in ONE GOD should help us to live this life. The manifestation of the IMAN should bring about GOOD values in life. SWEETEST moments of TRANQUILITY..like a GOOD, STRONG tree with WONDERFUL FRUITS can help to shed anything near it..
تُؤْتِي أُكُلَهَا كُلَّ حِينٍ بِإِذْنِ رَبِّهَا ۗ وَيَضْرِبُ اللَّهُ الْأَمْثَالَ لِلنَّاسِ لَعَلَّهُمْ يَتَذَكَّرُونَ
Yielding its fruit in every season by the permission of its Lord? And Allah sets forth parables for men that they may be mindful. (25)
وَمَثَلُ كَلِمَةٍ خَبِيثَةٍ كَشَجَرَةٍ خَبِيثَةٍ اجْتُثَّتْ مِن فَوْقِ الْأَرْضِ مَا لَهَا مِن قَرَارٍ
And the parable of an evil word is as an evil tree pulled up from the earth's surface; it has no stability. (26)
يُثَبِّتُ اللَّهُ الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا بِالْقَوْلِ الثَّابِتِ فِي الْحَيَاةِ الدُّنْيَا وَفِي الْآخِرَةِ ۖ وَيُضِلُّ اللَّهُ الظَّالِمِينَ ۚ وَيَفْعَلُ اللَّهُ مَا يَشَاءُ
Allah confirms those who believe with the sure word in this world's life and in the hereafter, and Allah causes the unjust to go astray, and Allah does what He pleases. (27)
(Surah Ibrahim 14:24-27)
