Istimewa buat Hamba yang Bertaqwa

Salam all,

As usual early morning is the busiest moment before leaving to office. And normally, at this time I will turn on the TV so that I could listen to the programme 'Tanyalah Ustaz" and "Adik dan Al-Quran". Even though the programme "Adik dan Al-Quran was meant for kids, but it also beneficial for us adult. The presentation is so simple and the brief airing time (less than 30 minutes) really able to trigger my short term memory (which make me want to listen to it) which later pass the info to the long term memory. And now, it all depends on me how I want to execute the knowledge.

It was the reciting of Surah Al-i-Imran (15-17):
۞ قُلۡ أَؤُنَبِّئُكُم بِخَيۡرٍ۬ مِّن ذَٲلِڪُمۡ‌ۚ لِلَّذِينَ ٱتَّقَوۡاْ عِندَ رَبِّهِمۡ جَنَّـٰتٌ۬ تَجۡرِى مِن تَحۡتِهَا ٱلۡأَنۡهَـٰرُ خَـٰلِدِينَ فِيهَا وَأَزۡوَٲجٌ۬ مُّطَهَّرَةٌ۬ وَرِضۡوَٲنٌ۬ مِّنَ ٱللَّهِ‌ۗ وَٱللَّهُ بَصِيرُۢ بِٱلۡعِبَادِ (١٥) ٱلَّذِينَ يَقُولُونَ رَبَّنَآ إِنَّنَآ ءَامَنَّا فَٱغۡفِرۡ لَنَا ذُنُوبَنَا وَقِنَا عَذَابَ ٱلنَّارِ (١٦)ٱلصَّـٰبِرِينَ وَٱلصَّـٰدِقِينَ وَٱلۡقَـٰنِتِينَ وَٱلۡمُنفِقِينَ وَٱلۡمُسۡتَغۡفِرِينَ بِٱلۡأَسۡحَارِ

Katakanlah (wahai Muhammad): Mahukah supaya aku khabarkan kepada kamu akan yang lebih baik daripada semuanya itu? Iaitu bagi orang-orang yang bertakwa disediakan di sisi Tuhan mereka beberapa Syurga, yang mengalir di bawahnya sungai-sungai, mereka kekal di dalamnya. Disediakan juga (pasangan-pasangan) isteri-isteri yang suci bersih, serta (beroleh pula) keredaan dari Allah dan (ingatlah), Allah sentiasa Melihat akan hamba-hambaNya. (15)(Iaitu) orang-orang yang berdoa dengan berkata: Wahai Tuhan kami! Sesungguhnya kami telah beriman, oleh itu ampunkanlah dosa-dosa kami dan peliharalah kami dari azab Neraka. (16) (Dan juga) orang-orang yang sabar (dalam menjunjung perintah Allah) dan orang-orang yang benar (perkataan dan hatinya) dan orang-orang yang sentiasa taat (akan perintah Allah) dan orang-orang yang membelanjakan hartanya (pada jalan Allah) dan orang-orang yang beristighfar (memohon ampun) pada waktu sahur. (17)

The verse laid a promise by Allah for His servant that are muttaqin (those who are truly devoted to Allah - bertaqwa). The muttaqin is promised Jannah (heaven) with stream in it and are being accompanied by partners. Who are the muttaqin? The mutaqqin are:
  • those who are patient in performing all the good deeds and ibadah,
  • those who are honest (doing things only because of Allah),
  • those who obeyed all His instruction,
  • those who spent their money for the benefit of Islam and
  • those who consistently seek forgiveness from Allah before dawn.
Do we fit to be in the category? Do we fit to be called muttaqin? A beautiful analogy made by Ustaz Zamri (the host), let's perform a simple activity:

The Hell......... We are here............... The Jannah

In between the two ends, if we perform any one of the following task, allow yourself to move to the right, and if you do not perform the task, move yourself to the left.
a. solat right after the azan (& in jamaah for muslimin)
b. read quran
c. sadaqah
d. tahajjud
e. fast
Now that you have moved yourself, where are you? Which end are you closer to? Is it the 'H' or the "J".
Let's muhasabah!


  1. Analogy so cuteeee!

    Game-based self-evaluation for the Hereafter!


    1. hmmm ... probably we good really build a game that will always become a counter and reminder for ibadah liLlah.
