Indonesia Damai

Assalamualaikum Wr Wb...
Yup..saya salah satu pendukung gerakan ini Dan saya bangga menjadi bagian dari One Finger Movement. Mungkin banyak orang yang belum tahu tentang apa JIL itu ( bisa cek di sedang untuk tahu sejarah Islam Liberal di Indonesia sendiri bisa dilihat di atau silahkan cek sendiri di google ). Walaupun pengetahuan Islam saya sedikit tapi yang jelas saya anti & merasa aneh dengan JIL ini , pikirannya banyak yang nyeleneh dari Al Quran ( salah satu contoh : tentang Jilbab yang telah disebutkan di Al Quran secara jelas, tapi oleh mereka disebut bahwa jilbab itu tidak wajib & hanya budaya arab yg sifatnya situasional. Cek komentar Bu Musdah Mulia -salah seorang tokoh JIL & Ketua Lembaga Kajian Agama & Jender  di Youtube ).salah seorang tokoh JIL dan Ketua Lembaga Kajian Agama dan Jender (LKAJ)

Astaghfirullahalazim ... hati saya makin miris apalagi setelah melihat tweet - tweet lain dari mereka ( bisa didownload sebagian tweet mereka di sini ).
Mari sebagai umat Muslim bersama - sama mengkaji Islam lebih dalam dan tentunya tidak keluar dari Al Quran sebagai pedoman hidup. Hidup dan teruslah belajar, buka mata & jangan hanya diam. Jangan sampai keluarga kita, anak cucu kita terkontaminasi dengan hal - hal yg menjauhkan kita dari cahaya Islam & merusak akidah.

Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar !

"The world held its breath last night as a ceasefire was finally agreed between warring Israel and Hamas fanatics in Gaza."
Alhamdulillah..Thank God, i'm so glad because there has been cease-fire in Gaza. Hopefully this time it actually reached an agreement so that no civilian victims again, especially childrens who are innocent and didn't know anything about it . Aamiin. Please, do no more war and show of force again. But during the time if my brothers in Palestine been wronged (tyrannized) again , i will support them till the end of time (sorry if you don't agree). It was truly blessed in Muharram month, the Islamic new year. Allahu Akbar..

Day of Ashura

Assalamulaikum ...
Welcome to the month of Muharram, the first month of the Islamic year (a bit late actually hehehehe ..). There was a very special moment in this month and it's the day of Ashura (Ashura is the 10th day of Muharram in the Islamic calendar. While Ashura itself means tenth). As we already know that Ashura is a memorial of things below, where Muslims especially Sunnis believe occurred on the 10th of Muharram :
  • Prophet Noah A.S and his people save from the great flood. 
  • Prophet Ibrahim A.S survived the fire Namrudz ( Firaun )
  • Prophet Jacob A.S heal from blindness and he was brought to the Prophet Joseph and meet on the day of Ashura.
  • Prophet Moses A.S survived Pharaoh's army at the Red Sea. 
  • Prophet Isa A.S ascended to heaven after the Roman attempt to capture and crucify him failed. 
  • Day of mourning the martyrdom of Husayn ibn Ali, the grandson of the Islamic Prophet Muhammad at the Battle of Karbala in 61 AH (680) 
There is a recommended Sunnah practice on the day of Ashura and it's fasting.
From Abu Hurayrah radi 'anhu he said, the Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu' alaihi wa sallam said :
أفضل الصيام بعد رمضان شهر الله المحرم وأفضل الصلاة بعد الفريضة صلاة الليل
"Fasting is the most important after (fasting) Ramadan is the (fasting) in the month of Allah (months) Muharram, and the most important prayer after the obligatory prayer (five times) is the night prayer." [HR Muslim no 1163].
This noble hadith shows recommended fasting in the month of Muharram, even fasting is more important than any other month, after the month of Ramadan.
And when the Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam was asked about his preferment said :
يكفر السنة الماضية
"Fasting is abort (sins) in the past year" [
HR Muslim no 1162].
More particularly if fasting on 10 Muharram ( Asyura ) coupled it with fasting the 9th of Muharram ( Tasu'a ) in order to differentiate from Jews and Christians, because the Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam when he presented to the 10th of Muharram is the day that heralded the Jews and Christians.
From Ibn 'Abbaas - radi' anhuma - he said : 
فَإِذَا كَانَ الْعَامُ الْمُقْبِلُ – إِنْ شَاءَ اللَّهُ – صُمْنَا الْيَوْمَ التَّاسِعَ
"If I am still alive next year, so really I would fast on the 9th of Muharram (with 10 Muharram)." [HR Muslim no 1134]
Some Ulama have argued sunnah fasting on the 11th of Muharram too, in addition to the 9th and 10th of Muharram, of whom Ibn Qayyim al-Jauziyah. But the story is weak and its weak hadith. However, if the intention of fasting is to multiply the 11th of Muharram or fasting to make up fasting three days each month, it does not matter. In fact, he has performed the Sunnah and InsyaAllah it counted as shiyam Dahr
So here i added  islamic calendar if still confused the precise date of 09 & 10 Muharram :D

PS :  
In several days conflicts in Gaza between Palestinian and Israeli Zionists re-heated. I was so sad to see these cruelty of Zionist israel soldiers that continue to attack Palestinians. And even now already fallen many of victims whom are childrens who are innocent. In my opinion, it's reasonable if Mujahideen Palestinians strike back with a force that even lame, because they maintain the area. If it's like this, so who's the real terrorists? I can only pray for my brothers in Palestine was given power, protected and given victory with your help, O Allah. Aamiin ..
In this Muharram month, which many of Muslims are fasting inshaAllah our prayers for them in Palestina were answered by Allah SWT . I hope the blessing and special 10th of Muharram could happen again this year for my brothers in Palestine like Prophet Noah saved from the float, like Prophet Ibrahim survived from Firaun & Moses A.S survived Pharaoh's army at the Red Sea. Aamiin. ALLAHUAKBAR..ALLAHUAKBAR..ALLAHUAKBAR !

فَإِذَا كَانَ الْعَامُ الْمُقْبِلُ – إِنْ شَاءَ اللَّهُ – صُمْنَا الْيَوْمَ التَّاسِعَ
فَإِذَا كَانَ الْعَامُ الْمُقْبِلُ – إِنْ شَاءَ اللَّهُ – صُمْنَا الْيَوْمَ التَّاسِ
فَإِذَا كَانَ الْعَامُ الْمُقْبِلُ – إِنْ شَاءَ اللَّهُ – صُمْنَا الْيَوْمَ الت
Dari Abu Hurairah radhiyallahu ‘anhu dia berkata, Rasulullah shallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam bersabda,
أَفْضَلُ الصِّيَامِ بَعْدَ رَمَضَانَ شَهْرُ اللَّهِ الْمُحَرَّمُ وَأَفْضَلُ الصَّلاَةِ بَعْدَ الْفَرِيضَةِ صَلاَةُ اللَّيْلِ
Puasa yang paling utama setelah (puasa) Ramadhan adalah (puasa) di bulan Allah (bulan) Muharram, dan shalat yang paling utama setelah shalat wajib (lima waktu) adalah shalat malam.“[1].

Hadits yang mulia ini menunjukkan dianjurkannya berpuasa pada bulan Muharram, bahkan puasa di bulan ini lebih utama dibandingkan bulan-bulan lainnya, setelah bulan Ramadhan[2].

Islamic New Year 1434 H (The Hijri New Year)

Islamic new year is coming soon (15 Nov 2012), time for us as Muslims increase our acts & worship also eager to make new resolutions. And my new resolutions for 1434 H are . . . . . . ( it's secret actually & only Allah SWT  who knows my resolution xixixixixi ). Supposedly in the Islamic new year we have to be grateful, happy and celebrate it. However, there are still many of us who are often forgotten and more excited as the turn of the year AD ( 01 Januari ).
As we know that the change of day in Islam itself happens when sunsets or maghrib. Let's do dhikr, prayer and other sunnah worship at that time so years later ( if Allah still given life for us ) hopefully our lives filled with blessings and always in protection. Aamiin.
There is also a prayer ( Dua ) that we can read when the end of the year and into the new year of  Islamic new year.  
Here are following prayer for the end of Hijri Year ( read ba'da Ashr or before Maghrib) 

 doa akhir tahun hijriah
"In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful. May God's blessings and salutations to the lord keep us to Prophet Muhammad and upon his family and companions.O my Lord, what servants do throughout this year in the form of actions that you act forbade slaves to do so, while the unrepentant slave of him and you do not pleased and do not forget it, and you also have fond servant when you power to torture slaves, then you call the servant to repent after adulterous servant. Therefore, I beg forgiveness from you, so forgive me with thy grace.And what has been done this year is the servant of the form that you pleased deeds and reward you promised it, beg thy servant, O Lord, the One of the Most Noble, who has greatness and glory, so that You do not accept the practice servant and should you decide expectations Thy servant, O Essence of the Most Noble. May God's blessings and salutations to the lord keep us to Prophet Muhammad as well as the relatives and friends of his."

These early prayer Hijri (read after Maghrib or later)  
 doa awal tahun hijriyah

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.May God continue to bestow mercy and salvation to our master Muhammad, his family and companions.O Allah, You are the Eternal, the past, another beginning. And unto Thy grace and generosity of Thy Great depend on.And this new year really has come. We beseech Thee in this year's protection from (temptation) Satan, lover-lover and his armies. And we are asking for help to defeat the passions that rage took on crime, so we're busy doing charity we can draw closer to You, O One who has the grandeur and glory. May God continue to bestow mercy and salvation to our master Muhammad, the Ummi Prophet, and upon his family and companions."

It is mentioned that whoever reads this dua 3 times (on the last day of the year i.e. this year before Salat-ul-Maghrib on the 15/11/12 ), then the Shaytan says concerning him/her “We have tired ourselves with him/her the entire year, and he/she has ruined our efforts, in one moment”.

Into the sky

I love looking into the sky. See the blue cloud makes me feel peace [when i am so tired through all these day,,uhhhh >,< ]. I am very grateful for all that i have, a healthy & perfect body with all the senses. It's all can not be exchanged with anything. Your gift so great, O Allah . Alhamdulillah.

"[And] who created seven heavens in layers. You do not see in the creation of the Most Merciful any inconsistency. So return [your] vision [to the sky]; do you see any breaks?"
"Then return [your] vision twice again. [Your] vision will return to you humbled while it is fatigued."
Al Quran Surat Al-Mulk (67 : 3-4)

Surat An-Naml (The Ant) - سورة النمل


Today i was pretty tired. And didn't know what to do. So i try to update my blog. I open photo files that i have and try to find inspiration from there. And then i saw a picture that's quite interesting.'s ant picture. That picture took with camera pocket, so be advised if the picture wasn't good. hehehehe...Okay go back to the ants. Why ants are so attracted my attention? because  its reminds me a verse of Al Quran that named An-Naml meaning Ant.
  • Until, when they came upon the valley of the ants, an ant said, "O ants, enter your dwellings that you not be crushed by Solomon and his soldiers while they perceive not." Al Quran Surat An-Naml (27:18)
  • So [Solomon] smiled, amused at her speech, and said, "My Lord, enable me to be grateful for Your favor which You have bestowed upon me and upon my parents and to do righteousness of which You approve. And admit me by Your mercy into [the ranks of] Your righteous servants." Al Quran Surat An-Naml (27:19)
Al Quran is a mercy & guidance for the believers. Only Allah SWT who knows about supernatural ( ghaib ) , including Prophet Sulaiman who can speak the languanges of animals. Subhanallah...
We could find a lot of story that inspiring in Al Quran, but sometimes i even try to find inspiration from somewhere else, just as i did just now. Forgive me ya Allah..:'(. You have made such a great Al Quran but i often forget it. 
Let's us read & understand Al Quran more and more. InsyaAllah that can save ourselves in this world & in the hereafter. Aamiin..
