Tarbiyah.Umrah.#4: Be good to our parents!

Wabilwalidaini ihsana

During my umrah, I see so many people from different regions with a different range of age. There are youngster, old people, adults, disabled people and babies. However, one thing in common in all of them are they are taking a great care for their parents.

You can see a son is holding his dad's hand and his dad is really struggling to walk. There is a daughter who walks side by side with her mom, not letting of her hand so that her mom can walk safely without any worry of getting lost. Even a husband who pushed his wife on her wheelchair taking her to the masjidil haram.

It's really a great view to look upon. Despite of so many old people walking hard to get their umrah done, there must be a relative who helped them.

Allah said in the Quran, wabilwalidaini ihsaana. There are few places in the Quran mentions that phrase - to be good to your parents. But to our knowledge, there is no place in the Quran that says be good to your own children.

Why is that?
You know, it's so easy for parents to love their kids. The children dont really have to do much in order to be loved. The parents automatically love them. This is because they are the ones who take care  of the children right from the beginning of the pregnancy till they grow up.

But in order for the children to pay back their parents is not that easy. We can see so many settlement villages for elders and there are some who just abandons their parents. To them, taking care of their parents is another burden. They have their career and their dreams to achieve.

So guys and girls out there,

Be good to our parents while they are still here in this Dunya. After that, we have no more who will pray the best for us nonstop.

Tarbiyah.Umrah.#3: Ranting on Selfish People

On the second day, we'd try to get ourselves pray on the ground floor, the closest that we can get to the Kaabah. We got second row of the second prayer space which is not bad. As we're waiting for Asr there are more people coming in try to get some space for them to pray.

There are nice people but there are some who are sooo selfish. These people maybe they were too tired to find a space by themselves that they decide to just sit on someone else's prayer space. They were not taking their seat but they just sit in front of that people which is happened to be a space for people to sujood. So when they were sitting, there was no more space for people (who came earlier and already save their space) to sujood.

It is so frustrating to see them. In fact in order for them to realise their mistake that we have to clearly talk to them that they have to go away and some of them even replied back that it is okay, there will be more space when everyone stands up. Whoaaa this is challenging and it's really testing my iman!

To be honest, selfish people is really frustrating. They are a bunch of people who I have struggle the most to be positive with. I bet u guys are the same as well aye? Things just got so hard if there are so many selfish ppl. They just want their things to get finished first. They dont really to wait for their turn, they just randomly sit in ppl's place, they cut the line and so much more to be said here. I am so discouraged by these people!

The same thing to Malaysia, there are tonnes of selfish people there. Just take Malaysian drivers for example.

This reminds me of the Judgement day. U know Rasulullah said, on that day, everyone will be selfish, they dont really care about the one that he loved. Even Allah said in the Quran, during the Judgement Day, a dad wants to secure himself from Hell that he is willing to sacrifice his wife, his children and his best friends.

I wonder how the situation looks like in real life?! It must be so horrible.

There are some reason ppl tend to be selfish and I think the biggest reason is they are desperate. They desperate maybe because the source is scarced and if they dont fight for it, they will not get it.

I just hope that on Judgement Day, I will be included in a group of people who are safe and make my way to Jannah.

Tarbiyah.Umrah.#2: Fastabiqul khayrat

Masjidil haram ini 24-7 masa operasinya. Manakan tidak, setiap saat setiap masa punya orang datang menziarahinya. Masa yang selalunya semua orang sedang nyenyak dibuai mimpi kalau dilihat di masjidil haram masih penuh manusia yg sedang melakukan tawaf, saie dan beriktikaf di dalamnya. Lebih kurang satu juta pada masa tersebut. Tak pernah putus manusia yg datang beribadat di dalamnya.

Entahlah, bila difikirkan, ramainya orang yg sedang mengejar redha Allah. Kalau kau malas nak berusaha mengejar redha Allah, know that there are tonnes of people who are tak pernah penat nak kejar redha Allah. Kalau kau malas, 'tren ini' bergerak je, kau yang akan tertinggal.

Fastabiqul khayrat. 

Berlumba-lumba membuat kebaikan.

Ya Allah tetapkan hatiku utk sentiasa fastabiqul khayrat biarpun mereka di sekelilingku tidak menyokong atau menghalang. Kerana hati ini ingin mengejar redha Allah, supaya Allah itu cinta dan redha padaku. Kerana diri ini terinspirasi dgn 'sekeliling idamanku' para anbiya' dan para sahabat. Merekalah contoh qudwah yang terbaik!
