We and Qur'an ??


Alhamdulillah..thumma alhamdulillah... thumma alhamdulillah.. 'ala kulli ni'mat yu'thi 'alaina..

Firstly, I am sorry for those waiting for my updates..I left this blog since Sept 11, the historical date to Muslims especially in the states.. Do you know that after the Sept 11 2001 incident, the number of Americans that convert to Muslim rose surprisingly. Just imagine! The stock for Al-Qur'an also finished at that time. You know, this is because the Americans started to do research on Qur'an, they want to know what is Islam actually.. Does Islam teach the followers to be a terrorist or what? And finally many of them were touched by Qur'an and chose Islam as their religion.

When I think about this issue, there is one thing that I would like to stress out.. I am actually quite ashamed with these American Muslims.. They got hidayah because of reciting and understanding the Qur'an, subhanallah.. But have we ever tadabbur Al-Qur'an ? or do we always study what actually Allah wants to deliver to us? because Qur'an is Allah's words.. Astaghfirullah.. we were born as a Muslim but what actually have we done with the advantage that Allah has given to us? Because those that just convert to Islam have already make a research on Qur'an..

As a reminder, Allah does not value a person according to how long he/she live as a muslim, but how strong the IMAN of a person...

Allah says:
ذٰلِكَ الْكِتَابُ لَا رَيْبَ فِيهِ هُدًى لِّلْمُتَّقِينَ
This Book(Al-Qur'an), there is no doubt in it, is a guide to those who guard (against evil)-Muttaqin.

Here, I want to share with you all about a friend of mine...

Last week, we organized a program called "MADAH"(MAbit+riaDAH).. Alhamdulillah, about 20 peoples from INTEC attended.. In this program, we stressed about the importance of ukhuwwah, qiamullail and understanding Qur'an.. That night we had ice breaking activities, a short taujih about the need for us to understand Qur'an..

The next morning, we performed qiamullail, recite ma'thurat and then we moved to the field behind Shah Alam State Mosque for our riadah. We played football for about an hour and had breakfast together. Before closing the program, Akh Khubaib delivered a tazkirah and touched an ayat from

Surah Al-Hadid: 20

اعْلَمُوا أَنَّمَا الْحَيَاةُ الدُّنْيَا لَعِبٌ وَلَهْوٌ وَزِينَةٌ وَتَفَاخُرٌ بَيْنَكُمْ وَتَكَاثُرٌ فِي الْأَمْوَالِ وَالْأَوْلَادِ كَمَثَلِ غَيْثٍ أَعْجَبَ الْكُفَّارَ نَبَاتُهُ ثُمَّ يَهِيجُ

فَتَرَاهُ مُصْفَرًّا ثُمَّ يَكُونُ حُطَامًا وَفِي الْآخِرَةِ عَذَابٌ شَدِيدٌ وَمَغْفِرَةٌ مِّنَ اللَّهِ وَرِضْوَانٌ وَمَا الْحَيَاةُ الدُّنْيَا إِلَّا مَتَاعُ الْغُرُورِ

Know that this world's life is only sport and play and gaiety and boasting among yourselves, and a vying in the multiplication of wealth and children, like the rain, whose causing the vegetation to grow, pleases the husbandmen, then it withers away so that you will see it become yellow, then it becomes dried up and broken down; and in the hereafter is a severe chastisement and (also) forgiveness from Allah and (His) pleasure; and this world's life is naught but means of deception.

Then, we were sent back to college.

Masya'Allah! The next day one of my mutarabbi came to me and shares his problems.. That morning before class begins, he borrowed my Qur'an and read it with the translations.. because he asked me to explain some of the meanings. I was like, alhamdulillah.. He felt that his life before this was filled with meaningless and useless things. He changed drastically because he felt very guilty. So, I calmed him down by bringing him to the surau to perform Dhuha..

Insya'Allah, may he always be consistent with his amal and guided by Allah..ameen

"When people have the intention and passion to understand Al-Qur'an, Insya'Allah they will experience something very meaningful..believe it.."

So now, how about us???

"Al-Islamu ya'lu wala yu'la 'alaih"
