Juz 10 #Day10

Assalamualaikum and hi again! You must’ve been bored reading my post everyday but….. I don’t care :p HAHA

Okay, back to our business! Today’s sharing is going to be from juz 10 surah at-Taubah verse 41.

Alright, the literal meaning of this verse is – “Go forth light and heavy (as cavalries and infantries) and strive hard in Allah’s Way with your property and your lives. This is better for you, if you know.”

Basically, this verse is a call from Allah for the Muslims who were heading out for the battle of Tabuk. This is after Mecca was conquered and Islam had become a dominant force in Arab and there was a threat of attack from the Roman Empire. That the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ made a draft and planned some strategies for all the Muslims to be ready for the battle because Roman armies were going to be a tough one to fight. They might be one hundred thousand strong or even more. So, the Muslims had to put whatever resources they had in order to defend Islam, moving forward and face the enemy.

So, in this case, there were some of the Muslims who felt “Am I really strong enough to fight because I’ve never been in a battle before? Am I good enough?” But then, in this verse, Allah said – ‘infiru khifafan wa thiqalan’ which means: ‘march forward, light or heavy ‘

There’s a lot of meanings that we can get from this simple phrase. It means that, whether we’ve a lot of money or lack of money, whether we’ve a lot of talent or we don’t have any talent to offer, whether we’re strong or we think that we’re not strong enough, whether we believe that we’re knowledgeable or we’re not. Every one of us needs to march forward because we do have something to offer Allah. Trust me, Allah created us with certain talents, certain abilities, certain powers and why not we use those things for the sake of Allah?

Islam isn’t just about our own spirituality, our own concern, our own prayers and that’s the end of it. Islam is about taking care ourselves and at the same time serves a cause beyond our own needs. Build our Jannah in the hereafter by helping other people. By doing good to other people, by spreading charity, by giving good advices, by spreading this post (hehe) and by being a reason on why the world becomes a better place 🙂

So, we might think that we’ve nothing to offer but that’s not what matter. We’ve to come forward and do anything that we can for the sake of Islam. May Allah puts us to use for His deen because to be used for Allah’s deen is the greatest honor we can have in this life.

That’s all for today, bye!

 

Juz 9 #Day9

Assalamualaikum and hi! Sorry for the late post of Day 9 #Juz9 Got some things to do yesterday hehe… So anyway, today’s sharing is gonna be about juz 9, surah al-A’raf verse 164.

The literal translation of this verse is – “And when a community among them said, ‘Why do you preach to a people whom Allah is about to destroy or to punish with a severe torment?’ (The preachers) said, ‘In order to be free from guilt before your Lord (Allah), and perhaps they may fear Allah”.

So basically, this verse is for the Muslims who violated the law of Sabbath. If you know about that, it’s about the law that stops them from going fishing on Saturday. But some of them were so tempted with a lot of fishes jumping out of the water, so they went fishing. On that time, there were two parties, one is the people who didn’t care about the law and they just simply violating the law. And another party is the people on the religious side who didn’t violate the law. Next, the second party was also divided into two groups. One group consists of people who didn’t violate the law but still care about their Muslims brother. They tried to warn them and give them advice while another group simply ignoring them. The other group said, “No, those people are liberal. Those people are progressive, whatever it’s they’re going to end up in the hell anyway. Why do you even bother talking to them?”

So, this verse is about these two groups, those who cares about their Muslims brothers and those who didn’t. The first part of this verse said, “And when a community among them said, ‘Why do you preach to a people whom Allah is about to destroy or to punish with a severe torment?”. This is so so relatable with nowadays situation where some of us might be thinking that there’s no point of advising our Muslims brothers who’re engrossed in sin. To make it worse, we condemned them and we claimed that they’ll surely end up in hell. But, how do we know that one day they’re turning into a new leaf? They’re going to make taubat and they become better than us? Who are we to judge them?

And the second part of this verse said that, the second group (the group who advised their Muslims brother) said that, the reasons why they were advising and keep giving warning to their Muslims brother are:

  1. ‘In order to be free from guilt before your Lord (Allah).’ On the day of judgement, we might be asked by Allah about our Muslim brothers and sisters and why did we abandon them? So, at least we can say that, we might not be able to stop them from doing this, we couldn’t forbid them, we didn’t have power over them, but they were our Muslim brothers & at least we tried to counsel them. At least, we were sincere to them and spoke to them softly. At least, we’ve an excuse in front of Allah that we did our part. That we didn’t just sit back and condemn them to hell.
  2. ‘And perhaps they may fear Allah.’ Maybe they will become good people in the future, how are we supposed to know if they’re not going to repent? How can we judge? Maybe they might become much more better than us. Who knows right?

So, as a whole, there are two things that we’ve to remember when it comes to advising our Muslim brothers. First, for at least we’ve done our part and we’ve an excuse in front of Allah later and second is, who knows they might turn around and become people of taqwa.

Apart of that, a beautiful word from this verse which is ‘tai’zuna’ – actually means advice and counsel that’s soft enough that it penetrates the inside of the heart. This is really important to note especially in nowadays situation. Da’wah isn’t about we telling someone what not to do but it’s about we trying to remind them of Allah. We don’t have to bring up about the mistakes that they’ve done, all the sins they’ve made, but just reminding them of Allah and they might as well realised by themselves that they were doing the wrong thing. Sometimes, what a person needs is simply a reminder of Allah, not a judgement of their mistakes.

May Allah helps us understand the courtesy, the love and the patience we need to have with those among our own that have fallen into sin and may Allah help all of us come back to His way of taqwa, amin 🙂

That’s all for today, bye!

Juz 8 #Day8

Assalamualaikum and hi!

So, today’s sharing is from juz 8, surah al-isra’ verse 151.

The literal meaning of this verse is – “Say, ‘Come, I will recite what your Lord has prohibited to you. That you not associate anything with him, and to parents give them good treatment, and do not kill your children out of poverty; we will provide for you & them. And do not approach immoralities – what’s apparent of them and what’s concealed. And do not kill the soul which Allah has forbidden except by right. This has He instructed so you can apply your intelect.”

If you might notice, everything in this verse is all about prohibition except for one. First, don’t do syirik, don’t kill your children out of poverty, don’t go near immoralities and don’t kill a person without having any justification. Everything is a don’t and the only do in this verse is goodness to parents. Why is that so?

According to uz Nouman Ali Khan in his vid, he says that, this is because Allah is saying that anything short of the best to our parents, we better avoid. There’s no other commandment in Islam where we’ve to do our best for it to be acceptable and that if we don’t do our very best, then we’re actually in sin. There’s no such commandment in Islam, except parents.

This verse is about what’s haram, it’s about prohibitions. And Allah says, “both parents, you better absolutely be the best you can be.” We better be good to them under any circumstances. And another thing that’s amazing in this verse is, if anything is short of our best, we’re in what Allah forbade. If we’re not perfect in our ibadah, we can try our best to improve from time to time. If we’re not perfect in communicating with other people, it’s not a sin. We can improve, always. But, when it comes to parents, it has to be the best.

Basically it means, when we’re with our parents, we should do good to them the best that we can. How is that so? Speak to them in the best way, deal with them in the best way. Give them the best kind of gifts. Be the most patient with them. It’s pretty obvious. Allah says, when it comes to your parents, “ihsanan” which means the best. Don’t think a single thing that shouldn’t be the best. There’s not a thing we can think of that has to do with the relationship between we and our parents that shouldn’t be the best. Our speech, our thoughts, our patience, our attitude, our body language, our gifts and our time, they should get the very best.

And that’s in this remarkable verse in which everything else was forbidden. And by implication, what’s forbidden with our parents is anything short of the very best. May Allah help us to live up to this incredible standard and really give us the strength and the patience, to deal with our parents when they become hard to deal with. When they become angry, unnecessarily. When they make inappropriate demands from us. May we can deal with it in the very best way that we possibly can, insyaAllah.

May Allah forgive our parents for the mistakes they make and give blessings to them as much as they love us since we were a baby till now 🙂

Ramadhan kareem everyone!

Juz 7 #Day7

Assalamualaikum and hiii. It’s day 7 already… omg it has been a week of Ramadhan. How fast time flies.

Aite, so today’s sharing is from Juz 7 since it’s day 7 hehe. It’s from surah al-Maidah verse 100.

The literal translation of this verse is – “Not equal are things that are bad and things that are good, even though the abundance of the bad may please you; so fear Allah much O men of understanding in order that you may be successful.”

In this verse, Allah commands His Prophet to tell people that the filthy and the good and the pure are not equal. First thing first, rather than stating it in this verse, Allah asked the Prophet to tell this because the Prophet will be the representative of Allah in determining what’s good and what’s filthy, what’s acceptable and what’s not. So the Muslims have to understand that the standard will be the Prophet himself.

Nowadays, most of the time, society will decide what’s normal and what’s not, what’s acceptable and what’s not acceptable and the line keeps changing, right? So, every few years, what’s acceptable before might not anymore now and vice versa. A culture that once was being completely unacceptable 50 years ago but now it might be accepted. The standards change. So, how far do we take the standards? Where do we draw the line? So this verse says that, the Prophet has been authorized by Allah to draw that line. To tell us that the filthy & the good are not the same. And what makes this verse more AMAZING is, Allah says, “even if the abundance of the bad may please you.”

Meaning, filth will be plenty and it’s going to be everywhere and we might say, everybody is doing it, everybody talks like that. Especially in today’s society. People will be like, what’re you talking about? Chill out man, why do you have to be weird? Because weird is that which is rare, strange. Unacceptable is that which is uncommon and what’s common is acceptable. So Allah says, filth will become acceptable but no matter how acceptable it becomes & how common it becomes in society, we just can’t forget that filth and good will never be the same. What’s wrong will remain wrong even if everyone is doing it.

And the question now is, what kind of people would recognize this? What kind of people that are able to draw the line between the filthy & the good even tho in this kind of society? So Allah says in this verse, “ya ulilalbab” which means – “people of sound minds and clear thought”. People whose thoughts are not contaminated by culture and blind sheep mentality. People who don’t become a sheep. People of clear open deep thought, so that these people can attain success as what is said in this verse. And that’s the final thing.

Basically, Allah says that no matter how many people is doing it, no matter how much the society think it’s acceptable, we better watch out for Allah & use our own mind & stick to the good & pure if we’re the people that want to be successful. Anddddd, another thing that’s interesting in this verse is the usage of word “iflah” which means successful. Allah didn’t say “tafuzun” which means ‘success’ as well. Why? Ok, actually “iflah” is used when we farm , when we plant seeds, when we make the soil soft, when we work the entire year on this farm and we eventually see success. “Tuflihun” is used when we put a lot of effort into something. Allah is indicating that fighting against the filth & looking for the good & pure in a world that’s surrounded by filth & rarely do we find glimpse of good & pure is going to be a lot of hard work. And that success will come at a price. We’ve to put a lot of effort into it. Finding a good friend, a good entertainment, good things to read, a good career, source of income and even finding good food to eat. . All of these things are going to be a lot lot lot of effort but it’s worth it in the end. Because we’re cautious with Allah, we want to attain success and we never let our thoughts to be cluttered. We remain from people of clear and concise thought. Amin, insyaAllah 🙂

That’s all for today, bye!

Filth vs Good and Pure

Juz 6 #Day6

Assalamualaikum and hello! Wishing all of you a good Ramadhan 🙂

So today’s sharing is from Juz 6, surah an-Nisaa’ verse 145-147.

The literal translation of these verses are – “Verily, the hypocrites will be in the lowest depths of the Fire. No helper will you find for them. Except those who repent, do righteous good deeds, depend on Allah, and purify their religion for Allah then they will be with the believers. And Allah will grant to the believers a great reward. What can Allah gain by your punishment, if you are grateful and you believe? And Allah Himself is appreciative.”

The first two verses are about the hypocrites that will be in the lowest pit of the hellfire. Then Allah says, the only one who won’t be in the hellfire are the people who repented among the hypocrites’. Nowadays, there’s a lot of people who’re in hypocrisy or it might even be us. But, Allah wants to tell us in this verse that hypocrisy isn’t a terminal state, we can come back from it because the door of taubah will always be opened. After that, in this verse Allah also said – “then they will be with the believers”. They’re no more considered hypocrites. So they came back in and that old label that they had on them has been shed. And lastly it says, “Allah will grant to the believers a great reward”

So, here it is. The beginning of these verses. It’s about saying the hypocrites will be in the lowest pit of the hellfire which is pretty depressing. Right after reading this, we’re like, “am I a hypocrite…?”

But, towards the end of these verses, the ones who were hypocrites can always repent and still be rewarded as a believer. It shows us that those who are so buried in sin and so deeply engrossed in sin, they think there’s no way Allah will forgive them. Sometimes, they might even think “I’m definitely is going to the hell after all” and then Allah says in the verse 147 – “what can Allah gain by your punishment, if you’re grateful and you believe?” So, if you can just be grateful a little bit, if you can just have a little faith, because Allah is appreciative. The word ‘shakir’ which means ‘appreciative’ is mostly used for the slave but Allah uses it for Himself. Allah appreciates the fact that we could think of the good things that Allah has done for us.

Best example of this is a story of a great scholar, Hasan al-Basri where his daughter fell and got a small injury on her hand. He loves his daughter so much, so he ran after her and picked her up asking if she’s ok. Guess what, his daughter said, “Alhamdulillah, thank to Allah who only allowed me to be hurt here in the hand and kept the rest of my body safe.”

Thus, if you can only look at what to be grateful for and you truly have faith then Allah Himself is appreciative and He knows what we’re going thru. He’s not interested in punishing us if only we could be grateful and have faith on Him.

May Allah make us qualified for his love and mercy and not let any of us lose faith in His love and in His mercy and in the fact that the door of jannahs will always be opened, waiting for us to enter thru them. Amin 🙂

Juz 5 #Day5

Assalamualaikum and hi!

It’s day five of Ramadhan, almost a week already guys. Hope everyone is doing just fine 🙂

So, today’s sharing is about a verse in Juz 5, surah an-Nisaa’ verse 29. Most of us might already heard the meaning behind this verse but das okay hehe

The literal meaning of this verse is – “Those of you who claim to believe, don’t consume each other money using falsehood; rather than that, let there be trading by mutual consent. You shall not kill yourselves. Surely Allah is ever compassionate to you.” Basically this verse is all about common sense and honesty.

To apply this in our life, as an employee, don’t lie about hours at the office when we’ve to punch our time of attendance. We’re being paid as if we work for 8 hours but the truth is, 3 hours from that were spent chilling at the café unless our employer knows about that and he’s happy with that. That’s totally fine. Because in this verse, Allah said, “unless it’s a trade that’s happening.”

To be totally honest and logically thinking, nobody can be one hundred percent productive all the time, it’s just not humanly possible. We come to work and we’ve like a one hour break for performing prayer, having lunch and get some rest. That’s what agreed between the employer and the employee and das okay. Because Allah said so in this verse.

Another example, as a student, when we received some cash for our daily expenses from our parents and they said it’s only for food, books and transportation, then it is. If we spent it on something else, then it would be consuming the money with falsehood. But, if they know about that, well that’s fine.

Basically, whatever it is, either we’re physicians, mechanics, consultants or even businessman, just don’t overprice people, don’t charge people more than what is necessary with our services and vice versa, which means as an employer, pay our employee with the right amount of money. If they work for 8 hours, then pay them with salary worth of 8 hours. If there’s less or more, it’s OK only when both parties agree with it.

And finally, in this verse, it says that – “and finally if they both agree to it and they are both happy with it.” That’s what AMAZING in this verse, because we don’t just agree with our consumer because we can get them to agree even tho they’re not happy with it. You know when you signed an agreement for insurance or whatnot and you’ve to read a 40 pages of document which most of us are just lazy to do it. So, we signed, we agree with it but later on we’re not happy with it. That’s not how it works because based on this verse, it says that both parties have to agree and also truly happy with the agreement. That’s what acceptable in Islam.

May we become one of those people who are fair in our business dealings and implement the wonderful ethics that are in this beautiful verse of surah an-Nisaa’, amin 🙂

Ethics of wealth and money.

Till here, assalamualaikum.

Juz 4 #Day4

Assalamualaikum and hi! So how’s your fourth day of Ramadhan? Hopefully everyone is doing just fine! Don’t worry guys, we’re in this together hehe

Today’s verse is from juz 4, surah al-Imran verse 92 which is quite famous as well. But there’s something more behind the meaning than what we usually heard.

Literally, the tafseer of this verse is – “You will not reach goodness until you spend from which you love.”

Basically, we get the idea that it’s about spending or giving something that we love to others, it’s not leftover things or things that we dislike but it’s the things that we love. But, the interesting part in this verse is, in the phrase “lan tanalu” Allah uses the word “nala” which is used when we’re travelling and we can’t wait to reach our destination. One of the prominent and relatable example is when we’re on a sail, we’re having limited supplies of food and water thus we can’t wait to reach to our destination.

And to complement this, Allah uses the word “al-birra” instead of “al-khayr” or any other word in order to say ‘goodness’ in this verse. And in Arabic, “al-birra” is closest to the word “al-barr” which actually means land. Do you get it?? “nala” which is used in travelling and “al-barr” which means land. It’s like in this verse, Allah wants us to think of the imagery, Allah gives us a situation. A situation when we’re travelling and we can’t wait to reach our destination which is the land! Reaching land is like goodness. Stability, safety.

So, we’ll not reach the safe land until we spend from which we love. Imagine being on a boat where it’s full with things that we love because if we don’t love them, we won’t be bother to bring them with us, right? So, when this boat is too heavy or leaking and we just can’t wait to reach the destination (nala) which is the land (al-barr), we’ve to drop some of the things that we bring, aren’t we?

It beautifully means that, in order for us to reach goodness, we’ve to spend the things that we love. When we’re doing charity, we don’t give them leftover food or the food that we dislike. But, we give them the food that we like. When we buy clothes for our eid celebration, we buy the other clothes that we want for ourselves as well, but it’s not for us, it’s for charity 🙂

Or maybe, sometimes, we’ve to give up some of the luxuries in our life and started to think about people surround us who might be suffering and starving to death. That’s the real “al-birra”. That’s when we know we have attained some kind of goodness. We might think, in this journey of life, everything we need is on our boat but Allah is telling us in this verse that in order to survive this journey, we better let go some of these things that we love if we’re going to get all the way to the goodness 🙂 May we belong to those people who are called “al-abrar”, insyaAllah.

Plus, towards the end of this verse, Allah says that, He knows what you spent. We don’t have to clarify or justify our good deeds to anyone. Posting it in Instagram, Twitter or any others is definitely unnecessary. Keep it a secret between we and Allah. We know and we believe that Allah is watching and that’s all what matters, in the end 🙂

Attain goodness.

Juz 3 #Day3

Assalamualaikum and hi everyone.

Ok straight to the point! Today’s sharing is basically about a verse that I’m pretty sure most of us have heard it because it is quite famous. But, what make it more interesting is that the famous meaning that we all know isn’t just that…. There’s something more awesome that Allah want to tell us from the meaning of this verse.

Alright, it is from Juz 3, surah al-Baqarah verse 286.

Most of us know or at least have heard once about this verse. “Allah will not burden a soul beyond that it can bear”. Seems familiar right? Yes, this verse is about that. But, there’s another perspective that we can look into this verse. Burden also means responsibility. It’s something that we HAVE to do. No choice. So, remember when Allah assigned 5 times of prayer a day to everyone. Fasting during Ramadhan, covering our aurah. These are all OBLIGATIONS which we’ve to do, only a few have exception but majority of Muslim have to do all of these since they’re all Allah’s commands.

So, isn’t that mean Allah knows that we are all capable of doing this. We can’t give excuses such as, “oh I’m not a morning person therefore I can’t perform Subuh”….. Allah knows that we are capable of doing all of these, therefore He makes it as an obligation for each of us. No excuse guys.

If we say that we are not capable of doing them without any acceptable reason, isn’t like we’re denying Allah’s words? Allah say we can, but we say we can’t…..? Because, Allah will never give these obligations to us if we’re not capable in doing it.

Another part that is interesting about this verse is, in the short phrase of – Laha ma kasabat wa ‘alayha ma aktasabat, which means: A person will benefit from whatever they earn and whatever they earned in terms of sins will go against them.

Well, in Arabic, kasaba means easier which is used for good deeds in this verse and aktasaba which means harder to earn is used for bad deeds. Wow, that’s like a big hint guys. We might think all these while that sins are easier to earn compared to good deeds. The meaning behind this verse is that, sins might be easier in short term but it will make our life harder in a long term or maybe if we might pass it on this world but we won’t in the hereafter. There is punishment for every sin that we did unless we repent 🙂

When Allah said so, it’s true. He will make it easier if we really want to do good deeds. Trust in His words. Some might say, it’s up to me, I do the sin, I’ll bear the consequences, do not step into my life. We might can say it here, but we’ll never know if we can say that in front of Allah later.

So that’s all. Thank you for reading! Here’s the link of the vid:

Btw guys, it just a short vid and it might be more interesting than my writing so feel free to watch it haha!

Juz 2 #Day2

Assalamualaikum and hi 🙂

Today’s sharing is gonna be short, maybe…hehe and guess what? Today’s sharing is much much more relatable because it’s about Ramadhan and we’re here on the second day of Ramadhan yay!

So, it is about verse 185, surah al-Baqarah, Juz 2 and as usual, the video regarding tafseer of this verse will be attached down below, ok?

So, more focus were given towards the end of this verse where Allah said that, “so you complete the count”. What count is that? The count of 30 days in Ramadhan and completing up your goals and objectives this Ramadhan. Finish the count, complete your target, whatever it is. Some of you might be targeting on finishing the 30 juz of al-Quran, or maybe tadabbur a verse a day, performing tarawikh all 30 days complete, or maybe it just a simple act such as to not curse or swear at all throughout this 30 days and others. It’s your choice. But, whatever it is, finish the count, reach your target. We can do this!

And there’s a part in this verse where says that ‘So you declare Allah’s greatness, based on how He guided you’. The meaning behind this is just awesome. Have you ever seen when someone suddenly become so attached to the Quran during Ramadhan? Or someone who comes to the mosque performing congregational prayer even tho all this while you’ve never seen him at the mosque at all. But that’s okay, seriously. The beautiful meaning behind this verse is that, in these 30 days, Allah guided us so that at the end of this month, the good acts that we just started on the first day of Ramadhan would eventually become a habit. And based on His guidance in these 30 days, we might as well willingly to continue it even when Ramadhan is over. If we can stay away from halal things for thirty days then staying away from haram things would be much easier for us! Hopefully…..InsyaAllah.

And by the end of this month, we can finally truly declare Allah’s greatness by improving our faith and good deeds once Ramadhan is done based on how Allah guided us for those 30 days. We all know, when it comes into Ramadhan, suddenly Allah is the biggest priority in our life and the reason in that is, Allah remains a priority for us even after Ramadhan, InsyaAllah.

And lastly, this verse said that, ‘so that you become gratefull’. Well, how can someone not be grateful if he managed to make Allah his first priority in his life. It’s like, he succeeded in his life.

So, all the best for the next 28 days and use it to the fullest so that in the end of this month, we can be one of the grateful persons that was stated in this verse! 🙂

And here’s the link of the video.

Ramadhan is the best time for a guidance.

Have a blast! Byeeee

Juz 1 #Day1

Ramadhan Kareem everyone.  All praise to Allah, we got to meet with Ramadhan this year yay! 😀

Just a short sharing inspired by a vid by Uz Nouman Ali Khan which I attached the link of the vid down below. Basically this vid is about tafseer an ayah from Juz 1, Surah Al-Baqarah, verse 67.

Image result for surah al baqarah 67

I found the meaning behind this ayah is so so relatable with nowadays situations. There are people who mock Allah’s command. I’m not sure if all of you acknowledge about this one issue where few Muslims mock Allah’s commands such as fasting, covering aurah and others. How do I know? I’ve been on twitter for quite a long time and I do follow few ‘liberal’ accounts and some of them are even Ex-Muslim which is very very sad. The main purpose of me following these kind of accounts is only to see and observe the reason why they left Islam and also their perspective about Islam and Muslim. Of course, theirs are very different and it’s good to see things from a lot of perspective. We might think that everyone is just doing good but some serious issue regarding apostasy is happening somewhere.

So, if we want to take every Allah’s command into logic. We can’t. It’s not that we don’t have to think. Islam asked us to use our aql to think wisely in doing any decision. That’s why one of the main sources of hukm comes from Ijma’ Ulama’ where they’ve to decide about hukm that isn’t there in Quran. But some of these people misunderstood and feels that they also have the right to tafseer any verse from al-Quran based on their understanding. I’m not saying that it’s wrong. Plus, it is good to think and do not accept facts blindly but this need a very very deep research and I think most of us know that verses in al-Quran can’t be translated directly because Arabic is such a unique language. Even a single punctuation can change the meaning.

Example, saying hair isn’t a part of aurah just because there’s none of verses in al-Quran that state so, is definitely not the right way to translate it. So, some of these people mock Allah’s command since they think that these commands don’t make any sense. But, there’s a clear situation happened a long time ago to the followers of Musa a’laihissalam which is stated in this verse. Musa’s followers thought that the command given by Allah is ridiculous. They mocked Musa as the messenger of Allah. But to think about it, how is that possible for us to take everything of Allah’s command into logic?

In the story of Musa and Khidr, when they embarked on the ship, a sparrow came and stood on the edge of the boat and dipped its beak once or twice in the sea. Al-Khidr said: “O Musa! My knowledge and your knowledge compared to Allah’s Knowledge is like the amount of water taken by this sparrow from the sea with its beak” [Al-Bukhari and Muslim]

There are times when we don’t know the logic in Allah’s command but it doesn’t mean that it’s not true. Allah’s knowledge is beyond ours. It’s beyond our capability of thinking guys.

Not to forget, in this verse, Musa a’laihissalam said, “I seek Allah’s refuge that I should be from those who lose their emotional control.” I am pretty sure that we must’ve encountered at least once in our life a moment where people mocked us when we try to encourage them to do something good. The same situation happened to Musa a’laihissalam. He might as well lose control and get tempered since he was mocked. But no, he tried his best to control his emotion and that was such a good example for us when we face this kind of situation! Be calm and do not lose our cool guys! :p

Well, I’ve been in this kind of situation sometimes and ya Allah…. it’s so hard actually to control our emotion and to not reply their mocking with sarcasm. Sometimes, I just can’t take it anymore and the sarcasm just slides thru my mouth, without I realised, seriously. But most of the time, I tried my best to smile and take that mock into a joke. Such positivity I have hahaha.

Ok guys, remember when I said ‘just a short sharing’ in my first line? Now, it seems that it’s not short anymore…. I’m sorry…hehe

Oh btw! Here’s the link of the video that I mentioned earlier.

Take Allah’s command seriously.

So that’s all, Assalamualaikum and have a good Ramadhan everyone! :)))
