Tuhan sememangnya dengan sifat Ar Rahman Ar Rahim, dan itu bukan sebab untuk kau jadi pengkhianat,
jzkk kheir ummi, untuk wake up call sore ini.
moga Allah masih memilih kita, menunaikan hak-hakNya.
42 hari berbaki,
sebelum meninggalkan bumi yang penuh cinta.
“The love of Allah is a light that, if you are without it, you are in an ocean of darkness.”— Ibn al-Qayyim (via halwaa)
"Hayya ala Salaah, Hayya alal Falaah
Come to Prayer, Come to Success”
Will you not respond to the call of The One who created you?
For Ibrahim, life was bleak.
Bedbound and paralyzed as the result of a car accident over half a year ago, he had not had a visitor from his family in months and was in desperate need of life-changing surgery that the Saudi Arabian could not afford.
Alone and isolated, there was not too much joy in Ibrahim’s life.
That was until he posted a tweet aimed at encouraging one of the few followers he had to come and visit as he lay paralysed in his bed.
With his tweet he hoped that at least one sympathetic person might hear his call and provide some much craved company for him.
What he did not expect was the social media storm that it would create.
Within one day Ibrahim’s tweet became the most retweeted message in Saudi Arabia’s Twitter history.
The hashtag #VisitIbrahim circulated through social media circles and within just 24 hours it had been retweeted over 200,000 times.
Not only that, but Ibrahim got a lot more than he bargained for when hundreds of people from all over Saudi Arabia came to visit him.
Clutching flowers, pizza and other gifts there were cues of hundreds of people outside the King Khalid University Hospital in the country’s capital Riyadh, all with the aim of meeting Saudi’s latest social media star.
The hospital became so busy that its officials had to put a temporary ban on all of its visitors as the number of people in the building was affecting the work of its staff.
Yet Ibrahim did not only benefit from the tweet in terms of footfall and flowers, so compelled were the Saudi Twitter community by Ibrahim’s story that they contributed financially towards the life-changing surgery Ibrahim dreamed of.
The surgery which would cost $130,000 and involve Ibrahim travelling to Germany was quickly covered by the generous donors from the oil rich middle-eastern country.
Pictures showing visitors posing, talking to and even feeding the paralyzed man were posted on Twitter.
It is now hoped a trip to Germany can be organised soon so that that Ibrahim can get the surgery he is so in need of.

***Dear brother/sister, This life is full of benefits and fortunes: The land on which man constructs his dwelling, and grows his food, drinks, dress …etc., all represents the nourishment for man’s body and soul proceeding towards Allah. Man, of course, cannot do without these vital necessities. The one who takes from these necessities only according to his real need as commanded by Allah is saved and praised. But whoever takes more than necessary for himself falls into covetousness which will lead him into harm instead of benefit, and consequently divert him from the right path towards Allah and the Hereafter. Likewise, taking less than required of the worldly benefits is harmful because the human body needs to satisfy certain basicneeds, and that will increase its capability to worship Allah perfectly.
'Amr Ibn Abdullah (radiyallahu anhu) said: “The life of this world and the Hereafter, in the heart of a person, are like the two scales of a balance, when the one becomes heavier the other becomes lighter.”
Al-Hasan Al-Basri was asked: “Who is going to cry more than the others on the Day of Resurrection?” He answered: “A man on whom Allah has bestowed His Grace and who uses that for Allah’s disobedience.”
No doubt, the one who uses his money in this life in Allah’s obedience: giving charity, contributing to the spread of Islamic knowledge, constructing mosques, is successful in directing this grace of Allah towards the right deeds that will definitely benefit him in the Hereafter.
Man, by nature, loves collecting money, gold and silver, running, for that purpose, here and there from birth to death, but what will he attain? And where is he going to finish? Life will never continue on one pattern and is always changing, from richness to poverty, and from happiness to sorrow. This is Allah’s Way with His Creation, but the people are running after a mirage each for a known number of days and years that will expire.
A poet made an image about the life of this world saying that it is like a dead animal encircled by a number of dogs pulling, its parts each in a direction. If you avoid it, then you are safe, but if you decide to pull a part for yourself, the dogs will be your rivals.
`Umar Ibn Al-Khattab (radiyallahu anhu) said: “Renouncing the worldly pleasures is a comfort for both the human heart and body.”Al-Hasan (radiyallahu anhu) said: “I know some people who do neither feel happy for obtaining any of the worldly pleasures, nor feel sorry for missing any of them.”
A believer should not regard the life of this world as a home and a dwelling, but should consider himself as a traveller in it. This is the good understanding and the fruitful knowledge. Yahya Ibn Mu’adh (radiyallahu anhu) said: “How can’t I love this life? A sustenance is decreed for me in it which keeps me alive and helps me to perform the deeds of obedience that will lead me to Paradise.” Such are the people who should be happy because of the way they regard life, but not those who live in luxurious palaces, neglect worship and reject every deed of obedience.
`Abdullah Ibn `Umar (radiyallahu anhu) said: “The life of this world is Paradise for a disbeliever and a prison for a believer. When a believer dies and departs from this world, he feels himself like a prisoner who was released to go freely on the spacious earth.”
(An excerpt from an article posted at IslamicAwakening.com)
"This worldly life is nothing but a material of delusion." Qur’an 57:20
It’s better to invest in our Akhira than to put ourselves into destruction (by displeasing Allah).
Giving up things that will not benefit us in the Akhira (& affect our Imān in a negative way) as soon as possible is way better than waiting for the “moment when we are ready” (to give it up for the pleasure of Allah subhānahu wa taala). You never know if you’ll last the next day/week/month/year. Nobody knows if you’ll be given another tomorrow to seek forgiveness, repent, and mend your ways; so do it now.. Today is the perfect time to change, to please our Creator.
If you are someone who grew up loving music, it will not be easy to (immediately) stop listening to it completely and that’s normal. But, really, when your eyes are set on the goal (Jannah/Paradise & pleasing Allah), the struggle will not matter to you anymore & Allah will assist you in this course of action. It might take you days, or weeks, or few months, but In Shaa Allah you will see the result sooner than you expect it. Just don’t lose hope. Remember that Allah is ever Merciful. Read more of the Qur’an. Try and understand its message. In Shaa Allah, doing this regularly will definitely help you achieve your goal. Strive hard in strengthening your Imān and everything else will follow. Why? Because when your heart only yearns for Jannah & pleasing Allah, it will be so much easier to give up things that displeases Allah. When your heart beats for Allah, the Dunya & all its amusements will not hold you back anymore from gaining the pleasure of our Creator.
May Allah assist us in all our affairs and purify our intentions. Ameen..
