QURAN GUIDES FOR DUMMIES

QURAN GUIDES FOR DUMMIES
www.iluvislam.com
Oleh: tajulrijalannuar
Editor: azzahra_solehah


Well my friend...We are all dummies..

Especially when we talk about Quran.




Have you ever realized, nowadays...people ONLY read Quran:
  • Without understand the meaning.
  • only love to hear the soothing sound of Quran recitation especially with tarannum
  • Only used against djinn and syaithan (exorcism, I mean).
  • Only read if we are afraid of something or have problems
  • Being only decorations at houses and shops..
Well my friends, YES. That is Quran. But not all of it... [and some I listed are not applicable at all.. trust me..]

And if we observe more deeply, how low we had put the glorious book of God...

Let we refer what Allah had said in the second surah which is surah Al-Baqarah from verse 1-4

[1-4] Alif. Lam. Mim. This is the Book of Allah: there is no doubt about it. It is guidance to Godfearing people, who believe in the unseen, establish the Salats and expend (in Our way) out of what We have bestowed on them; who believe in the Book We have sent down to you (i.e. the Qur'an) and in the Books sent down before you, and firmly believe in the Hereafter.


From here, it is easily understand that Quran is a book and there is no doubt whatsoever with its contents and the main role that Quran played is to be guidance.

But then, the guidance is for whom?

It is for the muttaqeen, the people who pose taqwa. Then what is taqwa? What differs taqwa, iman and Islam?

And it is for people who believe. For the believers.

And for the people who perform Salat..

Isn't it clear my friend? Only the people who pose the quality understand what Quran is.

If we give a Mein Kampf to a simple person, he may understand it only as an idea by Adolf Hitler. But if a National Socialist read it, he may understand it differently. Same goes to a geology book which you give to a medical student to read. He may understand it on his own expenses. Not more than that. But if you give the geology text book to a geology student, he may see his lecturers faces and all the marks of exams on the textbook.[bear with me. I am a geology student]



But what we talk about is the glorious Quran. The one that Allah said as a guidance. And literally, it is a guidance. And why Allah said that it is for the muttaqeen. For the mu'minin..

What quality does a muttaqeen poses until he was made special by Allah to use Quran as a guidance?

Why we are not thinking about it my friend?

For me, when we talk about Quran, we could expect the Quran as a spectacle and we are looking everything in our whole daily life through it. Let it be we look it as a political leader or even only just a simple man; we look it through Al Quran. Does Al Quran permit us to do this and that?

Why it is very important?

If we see it again, if we see everything through Al Quran, we had put Al Quran as our benchmark, our Quality Index.

We do not use society ideals as a benchmark. Let us go back to the history. During medieval times, all European women must wear modest clothes and they even need to cover their hair. And woman who wear luscious outfit, will apparently thought to be a bad woman. But now, it is all become so different. It seems to be turn around. Why?



This is because the ideals are being made by human, by the societies. When the societies are changes, the ideals change. If the society changes to good, we could say Alhamdulillah. But what happen when the society turn to be bad Like in this new era?

That is why; the ideals must be based not by human. But by something greater than human Existence: God.

That is why if we put Quran as a guidance, we also make Quran as a benchmark.

A benchmark in our daily life. In leadership. In economy. In military. And even in families.

Doesn't it cover all scopes? Every part of your life, have Quran in it. Every part of your life have Islam in it.

My friend, Islam is not only a religion. It is how we lived our life according to Allah and Rasul. It is how we show Him that today we do everything for Him to get his redha.

Let me take you at the very least how this things work.As I said, Quran is a guidance. The same as when we said about Standard Operational Procedure. We must follow the guide. It is as simple as that. If we do not follow the guide, we break the rules and we may face problems or even accident.

Doesn't we already faced many ‘accidents' nowadays. The corruptions, the illegitimate childrens problem, killing and all and everything that corrupts our society. That is all the accidents I am talking about. But the Quran gives the main idea how all those things must worked according to Allah. The later and finer description are provided by His messenger, Rasulullah S.A.W.

For example, if we read in Surah As-Saff, Allah asked us to work in a formation. Like bricks. In several places in Quran Allah also said that we must obey our leaders. That is the main concept. The concept of unity and leadership. But the finer explanation is provided by Rasulullah. For example, he showed us how he chooses people to lead in military campaign or even to be a governor. The 313 warriors of Badar can be counted as today's MP who lead the Parliament as they are the one who held meeting to discuss the siyasi (politics) during those times. And from that, Umar, Abu Bakar, Ali and several others prominent sahabahs are the one that we can counted as the high ranking ministers as they are the one who have more prominent voice.  Those teach us about politics a lot doesn't it.

Next, we see about the relationship of man and woman. In suraah An Nur, Allah had stated a lot about relationship of man and woman. In suraah Ar Ruum Allah stated that every thing has pairs and man is paired with woman. And that is the main concept. But the finer explanation is how marriage taken place that had been shown by Rasulullah. How he said that at least a guy must give mahr at least with an iron ring.

That is only small parts of Quran. Afterall, this is only a simple introduction of Quran Guide for Dummies.

Now, what we need to do is not only respect Quran by placed it on high places such as the top of cupboard until we forgot its existence.

But what we must do is, open the Holy Book.


READ AL QURAN.

UNDERSTAND AL QURAN.

LIVE OUR LIVES BY LOOKING THROUGH AL QURAN.


Then we will become the Quranic generation that everyone talked about. The REAL QURANIC GENERATION..

Tiga Bayi yang bercakap

Dari Hadis yang diriwayatkan oleh Bukhari dan Muslim dari Abu Hurairah. Nabi bersabda:"tidak seorang bayi pun yang dapat bercakap kecuali hanya tiga orang sahaja, iaitu Nabi Isa bin Maryam, bayi di zaman Juraij dan seorang bayi lain. Adapun Isa bin Maryam telah kamu ketahui kisahnya. Juraij adalah seorang ahli Ibadah di zaman bani Israel. Beliau mempunyai seorang ibu yang selalu rindu padanya.

Pada suatu ketika Juraij sedang bersolat dalam rumah ibadatnya, ibunya datang memanggilnya. Panggilan ibunya itu tidak disambut bahkan dia berkata:"Ya Tuhan solatkah yang lebih baik ataukah aku melihat ibuku?" Juraij meneruskan solatnya. Kemudian ibunya berulangkali memanggilnya sebanyak tiga kali. Namun Juraij tetap meneruskan solatnya. Sehingga ibunya marah dan berdoa:"Ya Allah jangan engkau matikan Juraij sebelum tergoda oleh seorang pelacur."

Waktu itu ada seorang wanita pelacur yang berkata:"Aku akan cuba merayu Juraij sampai tergoda olehku." Kemudian pelacur itu berusaha menggoda Juraij namun godaannya tidak berjaya. Kerana itu, ia pergi ke seorang petani dan berbuat hubungan yang keji dengannya sehingga hamil. Setelah ia melahirkan seorang anak ia berkata kepada orang ramai bahawa bayi itu adalah hasil hubungan sulit dengan Juraij.

Ketika orang-orang itu mendengar fitnahan pelacur itu mereka segera bangkit dan mengejar Juraij serta menghancurkan rumah ibadatnya. Kemudian sebaik sahaja bayi itu dihadapkan pada Juraij beliau bersolat dan berdoa kepada Allah. Kemudian beliau menunjuk kepada bayi tersebut sambil menanyakan:"hai bayi siapakah ayahmu yang sebenarnya?."

Bayi itu menjawab:"ayahku seorang petani."Waktu  orang ramai itu mendengar jawapan dari bayi itu mereka menyesal sekali atas perbuatan mereka. Kerana itu mereka berkata:"Kami akan dirikan lagi sebuah rumah peribadatanmu dari emas atau perak." Tawaran itu semua ditolak oleh Juraij kecuali mengembalikannya seperti semula.

Adapun bayi lain ialah seorang perempuna yang sedang menyusuui bayinya. Kemudian ada seorang lelaki dari kaum bangsawan yang berjalan. Ibu bayi tersebut berdoa: "Ya Allah bayiku ini seperti orang itu." Bayi tersebut menjawab:"Ya Allah jangan aku Engkau jadikan seperti orang itu."

Selanjutnya ketika ada seorang wanita lalu, Wanita itu difitnah orang bahawa ia adalah seorang pencuri dan pelacur. ibu bayi tersebut berdoa:"Ya Allah jangan engkau jadikann bayiku ini seperti wanita itu." Jawab bayi itu segera:"Ya Allah jadikan aku seperti wanita itu."

Kemudian ibunya bertanya:"Apakah sebabnya ia berkata demikian?" Bayi itu menjawab:"Pemuda itu ialah seorang yang zalim aku tidak ingin menjadi seorang yang zalim, sedang wanita itu adalah seorang yang difitnah berbuat zina dan mencuri padahal dia bukan seorang pelacur ataupun seorang pencuri dan ia hanya berkata:"Cukup bagiku Allah yang melindungiku."
