MENJADI MUSLIM TERBAIK

Sebagai pemeluk Islam, tak salah jika kita merenungkan tentang kualitas keimanan dan keislaman yang kita miliki saat ini. Bahkan, renungan seperti ini lazimnya selalu bergejolak dalam diri kita supaya mampu tampil menjadi yang terbaik di sisi Allah. Hal ini merupakan sebuah keniscayaan. Karena, sering kali, mayoritas umat ini telah merasa cukup dan merasa puas terhadap ibadah yang telah dilakukannya. Atau, karena faktor lingkungan yang sudah terkondisikan sedemikian rupa, sehingga timbul rasa malas dan enggan untuk melakukan muhasabah atas keimanan dan keislaman yang bersemayam dalam hati kita.

Telah kita pahami, bahwa iman selalu mengalami pasang surut. Iman bertambah dengan taat dan berkurang dengan maksiat. Oleh karena itu, Rasulullah memotivasi umatnya agar senantiasa memperbarui keimanan dengan cara menjalankan ibadah yang telah dianjurkan dalam Islam, yang sesuai dengan Al-Qur’an dan Sunnah.

Seorang muslim yang baik, seyogianya selalu meningkatkan kualitas ibadah yang dilakukannya. Rasulullah mengingatkan, "Barang siapa yang keadaan amalnya hari ini lebih jelek dari hari kemarin, maka ia terlaknat. Barang siapa yang hari ini sama dengan hari kemarin, maka ia termasuk orang yang merugi. Dan barang siapa yang hari ini lebih baik dari hari kemarin, maka ia termasuk orang yang beruntung." (HR. Bukhari).

Hadits di atas harus menjadi cambuk bagi kita untuk senantiasa giat beramal dan berupaya meningkatkannya setiap saat. Oleh karena itu, tidaklah mengherankan jika dalam salah satu ayat Allah memerintahkan orang-orang yang beriman agar kembali beriman. Perintah ini menunjukkan bahwa keimanan yang dimiliki orang-orang beriman masih memiliki banyak kekurangan serta kelemahan, sehingga harus senantiasa dibenahi dan ditingkatkan lagi agar lebih baik dari sebelumnya.

Bentengi Diri dengan Iman

Perkembangan teknologi akhir-akhir ini, menjadikan dunia yang amat luas di era globalisasi ini menjadi sempit, mengecil, dan terbatas. Perubahan ini tentu saja berdampak positif dan negatif bagi kelangsungan hidup seorang muslim. Dampak negatif dari perubahan dan pergeseran zaman mampu mengguncang, menggeser, dan mengikis habis nilai-nilai moral dan iman. Bahkan, lebih jauh dari itu dapat menghancurkan masa depan dan peradaban manusia.

Oleh karena itu, seorang muslim harus membentengi diri dengan keimanan dan keislaman yang kuat. Tanpa iman yang kokoh kehidupan seorang muslim akan terombang-ambing dan bisa berujung pada kehancuran. Iman adalah pelita, yang menjadi penerang dan petunjuk pada jalan yang lurus.


Menjadi Muslim Terbaik

Perjalanan waktu harus memiliki arah positif bagi kaum muslimin, yaitu bagaimana kita mampu tampil ke depan, menjadi sosok individu yang saleh, dan mampu menjadi teladan dan panutan bagi orang lain. Seorang sahabat pernah bertanya kepada Rasulullah, "Muslim bagaimana yang paling baik itu?" Rasul menjawab, "Yaitu seorang muslim yang membuat orang-orang muslim atau lainnya selamat dari gangguan, kejahatan lisan, dan tangannya." (HR Muslim).

Muslim terbaik sebagaimana ditegaskan hadits di atas adalah mereka yang mampu menjaga lisan, mampu menahan diri dan perbuatannya untuk tidak menyakiti orang lain, tidak menzalimi dan menganiaya makhluk ciptaan-Nya. Mereka adalah profil individu yang mampu menciptakan ketenangan, kedamaian, dapat melestarikan alam ciptaan Allah serta menjaganya dari kerusakan.

Seorang muslim sejati adalah mereka yang selamat di dunia dan akhirat dan mampu menyelamatkan orang lain. Rasulullah mengibaratkan kehidupan seorang muslim bak lebah, yang hanya menghisap sari pati bunga yang cantik nan harum semerbak, hingga hanya menghasilkan sesuatu yang besar manfaatnya bagi manusia, yaitu madu. Makna implisitnya, seorang muslim di mana pun dia berada dan kapan pun harus memberi manfaat bagi lainnya, tidak menjadi sampah dan parasit yang merugikan.

Muslim yang paling baik adalah mereka yang bermanfaat bagi orang lain. Kehadirannya selalu dinantikan, kebaikannya selalu diberikan kepada siapa saja tanpa pandang bulu, senang membantu yang susah tanpa pamrih. Karena itu orang selalu mendambakan dan selalu aman hidup bersamanya.
Dalam konteks lain, Rasulullah menjelaskan bahwa muslim yang baik adalah mereka yang panjang usianya kemudian banyak beramal salih. Hari demi hari selalu diisi dengan prestasi ibadah yang tiada henti. Di samping itu, Al-Qur’an telah menjelaskan secara jelas bahwa kriteria umat terbaik ialah mereka yang mampu menegakkan amar makruf nahi mungkar dan beriman kepada Allah.

Maka, mari kita bangkit dari keterpurukan. Kita harus mampu tampil menjadi individu yang bermanfaat. Memiliki kasih sayang kepada makhluk ciptaan Allah, mampu menjadi panutan, menebar kebaikan, banyak beribadah, bertakwa kepada Allah, dan memiliki komitmen untuk menegakkan amar makruf nahi mungkar.

TO BE THE BEST MUSLIM

As an adherent of Islam, it is not wrong to reflect on the qualities of faith and Islam we have today. In fact, such musings are usually always churning in us to be able to appear to be the best in God's sight. This is a necessity. Because, oftentimes, the majority of these people have felt enough and are satisfied with the worship he has done. Or, because of environmental factors that have been conditioned in such a way, so arises feeling lazy and reluctant to perform muhasabah for faith and Islam that reside in our hearts.

We have understood that faith always has its ups and downs. Faith increases with obedience and diminishes with immorality. Therefore, the Prophet motivated his people to always renew their faith by performing the worship that has been recommended in Islam, which is in accordance with the Qur'an and Sunnah.

A good Muslim, should always improve the quality of his worship. The Messenger of Allah reminded, "Whoever his charity today is worse than yesterday, then he cursed." Whoever is today is the same as yesterday, he is a loser, and who is better today than yesterday, then he is one of the lucky ones. " (Narrated by Bukhari).

The above hadith should be a whip for us to always do good deeds and try to improve it every time. Therefore, it is not surprising that in one verse Allah commands believers to return to faith. This command shows that beliefs belonging to believers still have many shortcomings and weaknesses, so it must always be fixed and improved again to be better than ever.

Fortify ourselves with Faith

Recent technological developments, making the vast world in this globalization era narrow, narrow and limited. This change certainly has a positive and negative impact on the survival of a Muslim. The negative effects of change and the shift of the times are capable of shaking, shifting, and eroding moral values and faith. In fact, further than that can destroy the future and human civilization.

Therefore, a Muslim must fortify himself with strong faith and Islam. Without a strong faith the life of a Muslim will be swayed and can lead to destruction. Faith is a lamp, a light and a guide on a straight path.


Being the Best Muslim

Time travel must have a positive direction for the Muslims, that is how we are able to come forward, become a pious individual figure, and able to be role models and role models for others. A friend once asked the Messenger of Allah, "What is the best Muslim?" The apostle replied, "That is a Muslim who makes Muslims or others safe from interruption, verbal evil, and his hands." (Muslim).

The best Muslims as asserted above hadith are those who are able to keep verbal, able to restrain themselves and their actions not to harm others, not to oppress and to persecute His creatures. They are profiles of individuals who are able to create tranquility, peace, can preserve the creation of God and keep it from harm.

A true Muslim is a survivor in the world and the hereafter and is able to save others. Rasulullah likens the life of a Muslim like a bee, which just suck the essence of a beautiful flower and fragrant fragrant flower, to produce only something of great benefit for humans, namely honey. The implicit meaning, a Muslim wherever he is and wherever should benefit others, does not become waste and harmful parasites.

The best Muslims are those who benefit others. His presence is always awaited, his kindness is always given to anyone indiscriminately, happy to help the hard unconditional. Because of that people always crave and always safe to live with him.
In another context, the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) explained that good Muslims are those who are old and then do good deeds. Day after day is always filled with unremitting worship performance. In addition, the Qur'an has clearly explained that the criteria of the best people are those who are able to establish amar makruf nahi mungkar and believe in Allah.

So, let us rise from adversity. We must be able to appear to be useful individuals. Having affection to God's creatures, able to be role model, spread goodness, worship a lot, be cautious to Allah, and have commitment to uphold amar makruf nahi mungkar.

How do we defend the honor of the Prophet Muhammad?

By: Fahrur Mu'is, M.Ag

Lately Muslims are preoccupied by outside attacks that insult the Prophet Muhammad, either through cartoons, newspapers, books, movies, or other media. As Muslims, we are obliged to defend the honor of the Messenger of Allah. However, before that we first need to know who the people who insult the Prophet Muhammad SAW? This is important so that we can defend him in a proper and correct way.

At least, there are three groups of people who insult the Prophet.
1. The one who is jealous of him
2. The one who does not know who he is
3. Persons defamatory with the state and decline of Muslims

In a survey conducted by Dr. Raghib As-Sirjani as written in http://islamstory.com obtained data that:
29.7% of people insulted the Prophet for not knowing him,
35.5% because of envy to him, and
34.8% due to being fooled by the decline of the Muslims.

People who do not know him certainly not a few in number. Especially in the Western world.
As for those who are spiteful to the Messenger of Allah and Islam, so long ago this group has emerged. The Qur'an explains, "How many prophets have We sent unto the former peoples. And no prophet came to them but they always made fun of him. "(Az-Zukhruf: 6-7)
.
At the time of the Messenger of Allah, there were known names of characters who often insulted him like Abu Jahl, Al-Walid bin Al-Mughirah, 'Uqbah bin Abi Mu'ith, and An-Nadhr bin al-Harith.

As for how to defend the Prophet against the attacks of three classes are as follows:
1. People who are spiteful.
We must be firm with them by giving a stern warning, asking them to apologize to Muslims or even to expel and boycott them.
2. Fools
We must try to identify who the Messenger of Allah and what his teachings to them malalui various ways and media.
3. Those who are slandered by the decline of the Muslims
Muslims should strive together to advance in every aspect of life, both science, economics, politics, and morals.

THE LAST GOD'S LAST GODS

What's so good about being an end-time people? Then, what is also good to be the early people? Of course this is not our domain. We live in our own time. Every era, time, and time is a challenge for us, with its advantages and disadvantages.

One of the tough tests for the end-time people is that they will face various slander and disaster that will happen as the age of this world ages. Slander is like a broken beads. If one disaster has occurred, it will be followed by other disasters. Moreover, read my book titled FINAL DISASTERS. http://pts.com.my/index.php/buku/bencana-akhir-zaman/

However, there is also good and virtue compared to people who do not witness it. What is that? Worship in difficult times and occurrences of slander, rewards are enormous. Let us read the following words of the Prophet.

Ma'qil bin Yasar r.a. said, the Messenger of Allah. said: "Worship in times of chaos and slander, rewards like hijrah to me."

According to Muslim narrations, At-Tirmidhi, Ahmad, and Ibn Majah from Ma'qil bin Yasar: Worshiping in times of chaos of reward is like hijrah to me. "

Al-Munawi in Faydhul Qadîr (4/373) said, "Worship in times of turmoil, that is in the period of slander and chaotic case. Like hijrah to me that is in the case of many rewards. Or anyone thinks that people who emigrate in the first period are few because most people can not do it. Similarly, the worshipers of the slander also numbered little. Ibn al-Arabi said, 'The meeting point of the similarity with the hijrah is that in the early days, people fled from the land of kufr and its inhabitants to the land of faith and its inhabitants. If slander has occurred, it is incumbent upon everyone to run with his religion from slander to worship, and to avoid the slanderers and the circumstances. This is one of the forms of hijrah. So, worshiping in times of turmoil can melt past sins, like hijrah. '"

الدافع للكتابة


بقلم: ابو نجيب عبد الله محمد فخر المعز
قبل شهر، طلبت مني منظمة الحرم الجامعي في سولو أن أملأ منتدى صباح الخميس. وقالت اللجنة، والمواد بسيطة، وهي الدافع للكتابة. واستجابة للطلب، لا أستطيع أن أبتسم إلا لنفسي. هل صحيح أنني يستحق الكتابة الدافع؟ كم عدد الكتب التي أكتبها؟ أنا أعترف، والسؤال هو ما يجعلني ابتسم لنفسي.
على الأقل لدي بالفعل أربعة أعمال منشورة. بالإضافة إلى ذلك، لدي بعض المراجع جيدة جدا.
حسنا، ما ذكرته في الدراسة وأيضا هنا ورقة تم إنتاجها من قبل العلماء. أقول مثالا على ذلك:
- محمد بن جرير الثعباري، وهو قادر على كتابة ما يصل إلى 40 قطعة يوميا.
كتب الإمام البيهقي كتاب ألف جزء.
كتب الإمام أبو حاتم الرازي كتابه المسند الذي يصل إلى ألف جزء.
وقد كتبت إبن تيمية أكثر من 400 مقالة في مختلف التخصصات.
-سويوطي، الذي يطلق عليه اسم "أب الكتاب" وقد كتب ما يصل إلى ستمائة المقالات. يمكن قراءة البيانات في كتاب علوو الهمة، كتبه محمد المقدم.
ومن الواضح أنه يجعلنا جميعا متحمسين. مدى الإنتاجية التي يكتبونها. كيف المباركة كانت وقتهم. في الواقع، لم يكن هناك جهاز كمبيوتر، كمبيوتر محمول، والإنترنت. ثم، ماذا عنا الآن عندما مرفق كاملة؟ كم نكتب؟ لذلك، ليس هناك دافع أقوى وراء الدافع لنشر الحق. اكتب الآن!

WRITING MOTIVATION


By: Fahrur Mu'is

A month ago, a campus organization in Solo asked me to fill out a forum on Thursday morning. The committee said, the material is simple, namely the motivation to write. Responding to the request, I can only smile to myself. Is it true that I am worth writing motivation? How many books do I write? I admit, the question is what makes me smile to myself.

There was no cane root was finished. The saying goes that, personally I mean with no expert, I dare. At least I already have four published works. Plus, I have some pretty good references.

Well, what I have mentioned in the study and also here is a paper that has been produced by the scholars. I say just an example:

-Muhammad bin Jarir Ath-Thabari, he is able to write as many as 40 pieces per day.

-Imam Al-Baihaqi wrote a book of one thousand juz.

-Imam Abu Hatim Ar-Razi wrote his book, Al-Musnad, as many as a thousand juz.

-Ibnu Taimiyah has written over 400 articles in various disciplines.

-As-Suyuthi, who is dubbed the "Father of the Book" has written up to six hundred essays. The data can be read in the book Uluwwul Himmah, the writings of Muhammad Al-Muqaddam.

Obviously it makes all of us unnerved. How productive they write. How blessed were their time. In fact, there was no computer, laptop, and internet. Then, what about us now when the facility is complete? How many do we write? So, there is no strongest motivation beyond the impulse to convey the truth. Write now!
