Observe Your Own Reactions

Observe Your Own Reactions

Take a look at your life and the feelings you have on a day-to-day basis. What emotions are yours and which are not? Does that action honestly make you happy? Going to a party might make you miserable. Talking to your wife might make you want to pull whatever hair you have left out. Your divorce might be the greatest thing that’s ever happened to you.

Your experience is completely unique. There is no point in comparing yourself to your friends, family members, models or actors on TV. They are not you so their experience can never match your own. What types of things make you angry? Sad? Happy? Why do they make you feel that way? If your own answer doesn’t make good, clear sense to you, then it probably isn’t yours.

The truly educated and ‘compounded ignorant’

THE recognition of Professor Emeritus Tan Sri Mohd Rashdan Baba as Tokoh Akademik Negara 2013 is indeed very appropriate. It is no small task to be a founding vice-chancellor of two public universities at a time when higher education was just finding its feet in the country.

A man leading prayer reading a Quran based off of braille for those that are blind!


info-pictogram1 Subhan’Allah, do you know what this is picture of? It is a man leading prayer reading a Quran based off of braille for those that are blind! Indeed, some people may not be able to see with their eyes, but how many of us are blind when it comes to our hearts! This is truly a man who can see, ma’sha’Allah!

[And for those who are quick to complain, let us respect the fact that there may be a difference of opinion amongst the scholars when it comes to reading out of the Quran when it comes to non-obligatory prayers (like the Taraweeh) and remember, “Let him who believes in Allah and the Last Day speak good, or keep silent.”]

May Allah open and soften our hearts, Ameen!

Allahu Akbar!

info-pictogram1 An important matter for Muslims to realize is that Dawah is an obligation upon them. Allah (subhanahu wa Ta`ala) says in the Quran:

“Invite to the Way of your Lord (i.e. Islam) with wisdom and fair preaching, and argue with them in a way that is better. Truly, your Lord knows best who has gone astray from His Path, and He is the Best Aware of those who are guided.” (Quran, an-Nahl: 125)

“Let there arise out of you a group of people inviting to all that is good, enjoining al-ma`roof (i.e. Islamic Monotheism and all that Islam orders one to do) and forbidding al-Munkar (polytheism and disbelief and all that Islam has forbidden). And it is they who are successful.” (Quran, Aal Imraan: 104)

The second verse may seem to be restricting the general obligation given in the first verse, but a close look at the Sunnah of the Prophet Muhammad (p.b.u.h.) reveals that calling to Allah is an individual obligation, rather than a collective one. The Prophet (p.b.u.h.) has said: “Convey from me, even one verse.” (Bukhari) Conveying the message therefore does not require a high level of scholarship, it is in fact a responsibility of each and every Muslim, according to his or her ability.

The obligation is further emphasized by the following verse which explains that not conveying the message – hiding knowledge – is disobedience to Allah that causes Allah’s curse to descend upon such people, which shows that such a sin leads to the Hellfire.

“Verily, those who conceal the clear proofs, evidences and the guidance, which We have sent down, after We have made it clear for the people in the Book, they are the ones cursed by Allah and cursed by the cursers.” (Quran, al-Baqarah: 159)

In the same connection, the Prophet (p.b.u.h.) has stated, “Whoever hides knowledge, God will brand him with the branding iron from the hellfire.” (Ahmad)

Calling people to Allah(God) also means completing our own worship, the reason for which we are created. It is one of the noblest acts that entails a high reward.

“And who is better in speech than he who (says: ‘My Lord is Allah (believes in His Oneness),’ and then stands straight (acts upon His Order), and) invites (men) to Allah (Islamic Monotheism), and does righteous deeds, and says: ‘I am one of the Muslims.'” (Quran, Fussilat: 33)

With regards to the reward, the Prophet (p.b.u.h.) has said: “Whoever guides (another) to a good deed will get a reward similar to the one who performs it.” (Sahih Muslim)

Also, “By Allah, if Allah were to guide one man through you it would be better for you than the best type of camels.” (Bukhari, Muslim)
