Qalbu mukmin baitulLah

August 7, 2008 at 8:00 am 8 comments

Got this in my email and within seconds, I had to rummage around for a tissue coz I was crying & crying. Nyehh, such a crybaby.

Its pictures of mosques and the ones I viewed were Masjidil Haram & Masjid Nabawi. Its in 3D format so you can turn round and round and look down at the carpet and look up at the lights and truly wish you were back there. *sigh*

A beloved teacher and friend said to me:

“We miss the Kaabah and Masjidil Haram. We put that place on a pedestal and we sanctify the place, but we neglect to sanctify the baitulLah in ourselves. Qalbu mukmim baitulLah: The heart of a mukmin is the house of Allah.

If we clean our hearts and take good care of it, wherever we go, we would feel at peace.

Masjidil Haram is sanctified because Allah is constantly being mentioned and glorified. We should first do that in our own baitulLah, our hearts.

What is there at Masjidil Haram?

  • The serenity (ketenangannya)
  • The satisfaction & sweetness of worship (kepuasan & kemanisan ibadahnya)
  • A place that Allah showers His Rahmah & Barakah. When Allah showers His Rahmah & Barakah, it is safe from disaster/calamity and also a place that is loved by all. (yang selamat dari bencana & tempat yang disenangi)

If we put in effort to make our hearts a proper BaitulLah, we’ll get to enjoy all this. The serenity, the satisfaction of worship, we are safe from calamities and everyone is at ease with us.

How is this done?

Defeat the ego. Opportunities are many. Allah has already prepared them. All we have to do is pass the tests.

Analogy: 30 secs without oxygen, we are dysfunctional -> become vege.
30 secs without Allah (remembrance of Allah) -> we (our hearts) become vege, half-dead.

30 secs without Allah, our jasad/body is not dead. Even happier, even more laughter, even more food consumed. But there’s a completely different effect on our hearts.

That is why Sufis say that a second of not remembering Allah is considered a maksiat.”

May this sharing be of benefit. May we keep the remembrance of Allah in our hearts always. May our tongues and hearts be in constant praise of Allah & His Beloved Prophet Muhammad SAW. Amin.

    Aaah nice post Didi! (why haven’t i come across this? lol)

    You know, it’s one challenge to try and follow the Sunnah by not eating or drinking more than you need, but it’s a whole other challenge when the people around you actually ENCOURAGE you to eat and drink more.

    And when you say “Ikut Sunnah, ikut Sunnah (I’m following the Sunnah)” they have that odd look on their faces and try to make a joke out of it…

    Heh. My personal experience =)

    And it’s so hard not to feel rude if you don’t laugh at something funny. How weird is that? Hehe.

    salam..

    Betul tu kalbun mukmin baitullah..

    Maksudnya kalbu mukmin itu rumah amanah allah.

    Sama seperti masjid, masjid nabawi, masjidil haram juga adalah rumah amanah allah.

    Apakah amanh allah?

    “sesunguhnya kami telah kemukakan amanah kepada langit dan bumi serta gunung-gng, maka mereka enggan memikulnya dan bimbang tidak dpt menyempurnakannya dan manusia sanggup memikulkannya. Sesungguhnya tabiat kebanyakan manusia adalah suka melakukan kezaliman dan suka pula membuat perkra2 yg tidak patut dibuat”(al-ahzab:72)

    Amanah allah itulah kalimah muhammadar rasullullah. Iaitu kalimah iman. Kalimah lailahaillah itu ialah kalimah tauhid, tanda islam. Islam tanpa iman sama lah tarafnya dgn gunung, haiwan dan sebagainya dimana semua makhluk allah mampu memegang tanggung jawab untuk menjaga kalimah tauhid lailahillalah (mengaku allah hu rabbi) tetapi utk beriman, iaitu dgn menjaga amanah allah, hanya manusia sahaja yg sanggup melakukanya. Maka itulah mulianya manusia dibandingkan dgn haiwan.

    Apakah kalimah iman itu?
    Iaitu kalimah alif lam lam ha. Tempat menyebutnya ialah dihati. Bukan dilidah. Masa utk menyebutnya ialah setiap saat. Sesaat lupa, maka jtuh lah tahap manusia kita kepada haiwan. “celakalah org yg hatinya tidak berzikrullah. Mereka itu didalam kesesatan yang nyata” (AL-ZUMAR:22)

    Kerana itulah sufi menganggap sesaat melupa allah itu maksiat. Sebenarnya bukan sufi, sepatutnya kita semua umat islam berfikiran begitu. Kerana itulah ajaran rasullullah selama 13 tahun beliau menyampaikan islam sebelum turunnya perintah dirikan solat.

    “demi sesungguhnya adalah bagi kamu rasullullah itu contoh ikutan yg baik. Iaitu bagi org yg sentiasa mengharapkan allah dan hari akhirat. Serta dia pula menyebut dan mengingati allah banyak2.(al-ahzab:21)

    Maka kerana itulah mengucap 2 kalimah syahadah itu yg pertama..iaitu gabungan kalimah tauhid dan kalimah iman. Caranya sebut dilidah diikuti tasdiq dihati setiap masa. Itulah tanda iman. Sesaat lupa menyebut kalimah allah dihati, rosaklah iman kerana mengizinkan syaitan bertahta dihati.

    Sesungguhnya hamba2ku yg beriman (hatinya mengingati dan menyebut nama allah) tiadalah engkau (iblis) mempunyai kuasa terhadap mereka. Cukuplah tuhanmu menjadi pelindung. (al-isra:65)

    Maka org2 yg hatinya tidak lalai dari mengingat allah inilah sahja yg diterima amalannya. Kerna yg lalai hatinya itu pasti akan mengikut hawa nafsu semata2..

    “jangan kamu ikut org yang telah kami lalaikan hatinya dari mengingati kami. Serta menurut hawa nafsunya, dan adalah keadaan itu melampaui batas”.(alkahfi:28)

    Maka dgn itu kuatkan amal syahadah, supaya dtg iman..slamat dunia akhirat

    salam,

    qalb = heart = JANTUNG atau HATI ?

    ask any doctor or better still the heart specialist.

    wassalam.
