Sinar Cahaya Ayat Kursi

Wednesday 28 May 2008 | post a comment
(Dapet dari milis)

Dlm sebuah hadis, ada menyebut perihal seekor syaitan yang duduk di atas pintu rumah. Tugasnya ialah untuk menanam keraguan di hati suami terhadap kesetiaan isteri di rumah dan keraguan di hati isteri terhadap kejujuran suami di luar rumah. Sebab itulah Rasulullah tidak akan masuk rumah sehingga Baginda mendengar jawaban salam dari isterinya. Di saat itu syaitan akan lari bersama-sama dengan salam itu.

Hikmat Ayat Al-Kursi mengikut Hadis-hadis:

  • Barang siapa membaca ayat Al-Kursi bila berbaring di tempat tidurnya,Allah SWT mewakilkan dua orang Malaikat memeliharanya hingga subuh.
  • Barang siapa membaca ayat Al-Kursi di akhir setiap sembahyang Fardhu,dia akan berada dalam lindungan Allah SWT hingga sembahyang yang lain.
  • Barang siapa membaca ayat Al-Kursi di akhir tiap sembahyang, dia akan masuk syurga dan barang siapa membacanya ketika hendak tidur, Allah SWT akan memelihara rumahnya dan rumah-rumah disekitarnya.
  • Barang siapa membaca ayat Al-Kursi di akhir tiap-tiap shalat fardhu, Allah SWT menganugerahkan dia setiap hati orang yang bersyukur, setiap perbuatan orang yang benar, pahala nabi2, serta Allah melimpahkan rahmat padanya.
  • Barang siapa membaca ayat Al-Kursi sebelum keluar rumahnya, maka Allah SWT mengutuskan 70,000 Malaikat kepadanya – mereka semua memohon keampunan dan mendoakan baginya
  • Barang siapa membaca ayat Al-Kursi di akhir sembahyang, Allah SWT akan mengendalikan pengambilan rohnya dan dia adalah seperti orang yang berperang bersama Nabi Allah sehingga mati syahid.
  • Barang siapa yang membaca ayat Al-Kursi ketika dalam kesempitan niscaya Allah SWT berkenan memberi pertolongan kepadanya.

Dari Abdullah bin ‘Amr r.a., Rasulullah S.A.W. bersabda, “Sampaikanlah pesanku biarpun satu ayat…”

“Utamakan SELAMAT dan SEHAT untuk Dunia-mu, utamakan SHOLAT dan ZAKAT untuk Akhirat-mu”

Subhanallah…

Sekarang Anda mempunyai 2 pilihan :

  1. Biarkan isi pesan ini tetap dalam isi kepala Anda. Insya Allah tidak akan ada sesuatu yang terjadi pada diri Anda.
  2. Forward isi pesan ini (copy paste) ke sejumlah orang yang Anda kenal dan Insya Allah ridha Allah akan dianugerahkan kepada setiap orang yang anda kirim.

Doa dalam Kesulitan

Friday 23 May 2008 | post a comment

Di tempat saya bekerja (perpustakaan), iseng saya berjalan menuju rak buku-buku agama. Suatu hal yang jarang saya lakukan selama saya bekerja di sini (duh). Setelah lama melihat-lihat judul buku, mata saya tertuju pada buku kecil berjudul “Doa-doa Rosulullah SAW” dengan desain cover yang agak-agak kampungan.

Dari daftar isinya, buku ini berisi indeks daftar doa yang biasa digunakan oleh nabi muhammad dalam kesehariannya dan diriwayatkan oleh orang lain (hadist). Saya telusuri jenis-jenis doa yang ada dalam daftar isi, dan sampai kepada doa menghilangkan kesulitan (ketawan deh lagi kesulitan). Untuk isinya kira-kira seperti ini.

TIDAK ADA TUHAN SELAIN ALLAH YANG MAHA AGUNG, YANG MAHA BIJAK. TIDAK ADA TUHAN SELAIN ALLAH, TUHAN ARAYS YANG AGUNG. TIDAK ADA TUHAN SELAIN ALLAH TUHAN LANGIT, TUHAN BUMI, TIDAK ADA TUHAN SELAIN ALLAH, TUHAN ARAYS YANG MULIA. (BUKHORI DAN MUSLIM)

Sambil agak2 termenung saya berpikir. Ternyata doa ketika kita kesulitan bukan permohonan frontal seperti, “YA ALLAH SAYA SEDANG SUSAH”. Isi dari doa tersebut lebih menampilkan kebesaran Tuhan; MAHA AGUNG, TUHAN BUMI, TUHAN LANGIT, TUHAN ARASY. Agak-agak aneh yah????

Setelah agak lama berpikir, saya memiliki kesimpulan soal doa ini. Ketika kita kesulitan, kita disuruh merendah diri dan disuruh memahami bahwa semua kesulitan itu juga dari Dia yang maha besar dan berkuasa. Kita disuruh untuk memahami semua kebesaran Tuhan dan betapa berkuasanya dia. Di sini kita akan dilihat, apakah kita akan berpaling atau coba kembali kepadanya.

Oh iya, soal desain buku yang kampungan tadi, ternyata buku ini adalah terjemahan dari kitab DOA-URRASULILLAAHI SHALLALLAAHU ALAIHIWASALLAM hasil racikan Abdullah Rajaj (buku terjemahan luar coy!!!)

Tentang Sholat

Friday 2 May 2008 | post a comment

Baru-baru ini saya mencoba kembali membuat puisi. Suatu hal yang cukup lama tidak saya lakukan sejak saya masih kuliah. Entah kenapa ada semacam kerinduan ingin melakukan aktivitas itu.

Mungkin setelah kejadian meninggalnya bapak, sisi batin saya bergejolak hebat ingin memaparkan sesuatu.

Setelah membuat 3 buah puisi, ada semacam mekanisme perasaan puas yang benar-benar meluap dan muncul seketika di dalam diri saya. Saya sendiri tidak pernah mengerti mengapa bisa sampai sebegitunya, padahal dulu ketika kuliah saya sering merasakan ini. Saya seolah lupa kalau letupan pelepasan rasa di batin itu begitu nikmat.

Yang cukup saya sesalkan, kenapa dalam tahap sholat, saya belum bisa sampai ke level benar-benar puas tersebut. Ada tebersit dalam pemikiran saya bahwa ketika saya sholat, saya sedang tidak benar-benar membangun perasaan menghamba kepada-Nya, sehingga saya benar-benar merasa hanya menuntaskan kewajiban. Sampai saat ini, saya belum bisa mencapai level rutinitas sholat adalah sebuah kenikmatan (duh), dan (mungkin) baru bisa menikmati rutinitas sholat.

Saya coba kembali me-review isi hati saya dan mencoba mengingat-ingat kembali permasalahan yang ada.

Sepertinya, saya terlalu banyak tertawa.

Komentar Tentang Muhammad

Washington Irving
(1783-1859) Well-known as the “first American man of letters”.
He was sober and abstemious in his diet, and a rigorous observer of fasts. He indulged in no magnificence of apparel, the ostentation of a petty mind; neither was his simplicity in dress affected, but the result of a real disregard to distinction from so trivial a source … In his private dealings he was just. He treated friends and strangers, the rich and poor, the powerful and the weak, with equity, and was beloved by the common people for the affability with which he received them, and listened to their complaints … His military triumphs awakened no pride nor vain glory, as they would have done had they been effected for selfish purposes. In the time of his greatest power he maintained the same simplicity of manners and appearance as in the days of his adversity. So far from affecting regal state, he was displeased if, on entering a room, any unusual testimonial of respect were shown to him.
*Life of Mahomet*, London, 1889, pp. 192-3, 199
Annie Besant
(1847-1933) British theosophist and nationalist leader in India & President of the Indian National Congress in 1917.*
It is impossible for anyone who studies the life and character of the great Prophet of Arabia, who knows how he taught and how he lived, to feel anything but reverence for that mighty Prophet, one of the great messengers of the Supreme. And although in what I put to you I shall say many things which may be familiar to many, yet I myself feel whenever I re-read them, a new way of admiration, a new sense of reverence for that mighty Arabian teacher.
*The Life And Teachings Of Muhammad*, Madras, 1932, p. 4
Edward Gibbon
(1737-1794) Considered the greatest British historian of his time.
His (i.e., Muhammad’s) memory was capacious and retentive, his wit easy and social, his imagination sublime, his judgment clear, rapid and decisive. He possessed the courage of both thought and action.
*History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire*, London, 1838, vol.5, p.335
Michael H. Hart
Professor of astronomy, physics and the history of science
My choice of Muhammad to lead the list of the world’s most influential persons may surprise some readers and may be questioned by others, but he was the only man in history who was supremely successful on both the religious and secular level.
*The 100: A Ranking Of The Most Influential Persons In History*, New York, 1978, p. 33
William Montgomery Watt
Professor (Emeritus) of Arabic and Islamic Studies at the University of Edinburgh.
His readiness to undergo persecutions for his beliefs, the high moral character of the men who believed in him and looked up to him as leader, and the greatness of his ultimate achievement – all argue his fundamental integrity. To suppose Muhammad an impostor raises more problems than it solves. Moreover, none of the great figures of history is so poorly appreciated in the West as Muhammad.
*Mohammad At Mecca*, Oxford, 1953, p. 52
Alphonse de Lamartine
(1790-1869) French poet and statesman.
Philosopher, orator, apostle, legislator, warrior, conqueror of ideas, restorer of rational dogmas, of a cult without images; the founder of twenty terrestrial empires and of one spiritual empire, that is Muhammad. As regards all standards by which human greatness may be measured, we may well ask, is there any man greater than he?
Translated from* Histoire De La Turquie*, Paris, 1854, vol. II, pp. 276-277
Reverend Bosworth Smith
(1794-1884) Late Fellow of Trinity College, Oxford.
He was Caesar and Pope in one; but he was Pope without the Pope’s pretensions, and Caesar without the legions of Caesar. Without a standing army, without a bodyguard, without a palace, without a fixed revenue, if ever any man had the right to say that he ruled by a right Divine, it was Mohammed; for he had all the power without its instruments and without its supports.
*Mohammed and Mohammedanism*, London, 1874, p. 235
Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi
(1869-1948) Indian thinker, statesman, and nationalist leader.
I became more than ever convinced that it was not the sword that won a place for Islam in those days in the scheme of life. It was the rigid simplicity, the utter self-effacement of the prophet, the scrupulous regard for his pledges, his intense devotion to his friends and followers, his intrepidity, his fearlessness, his absolute trust in God and in his own mission. These, and not the sword carried everything before them and surmounted every trouble.
*Young India* (periodical), 1928, Volume X
Edward Gibbon
(1737-1794) Considered the greatest British historian of his time.
The greatest success of Mohammad’s life was effected by sheer moral force without the stroke of a sword.
*History Of The Saracen Empire*, London, 1870
John William Draper
(1811-1882) American scientist, philosopher, and historian.
Four years after the death of Justinian, A.D. 569, was born at Mecca, in Arabia the man who, of all men exercised the greatest influence upon the human race . . . Mohammed.
*A History of the Intellectual Development of Europe*, London, 1875, vol.1, pp. 329-330
David George Hogarth
(1862-1927) English archaeologist, author, and keeper of the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford.
Serious or trivial, his daily behaviour has instituted a canon which millions observe this day with conscious mimicry. No one regarded by any section of the human race as Perfect Man has been imitated so minutely. The conduct of the Founder of Christianity has not so governed the ordinary life of His followers. Moreover, no Founder of a religion has been left on so solitary an eminence as the Muslim Apostle.
*Arabia*, Oxford, 1922, p. 52
