first of all, let us say ALHAMDULILLAH, All praises to Allah for all the things that He gave and is giving us now and today. here's a quote that i read on twitter just now.
(i dont remember the exact one)
"FOR THOSE WHO'S DAY IS NOT GOING AS HE PLANNED, SAY ALHAMDULILLAH BECAUSE ALLAH HAD REMIND HIM THAT ALLAH IS THE BEST PLANNER FOR YOU!"
wahh..masyaAllah! eventhough people will see bad thing happened as a jinx but we as a Muslim will certainly see that there is always a good side of every single things happened.
only the TRUE MUSLIM can feel that and only the TRUE MUSLIM can think with such mindset (or in SOLUSI mag, they say 'tauhidic mindset') and these kind of people with a very genuine heart will feel a very sweetest feeling ever which is HALAWATUL IMAN or in malay, KEMANISAN IMAN or in english, THE SWEETNESS OF IMAN (i apologise if it's not the correct one...hehe)
that's what we supposed to feel in every single second in every single act that we did..the sweetness of everything. everything happens for a reason which is A GOOD ONE!
to talk about halawatul iman, i'm not the one who is very expert in this but i could only share what i have read in SOLUSI mag just now and some of things that i said here are based on 'kulsem' in surau blok f.
one of my friends said,
may everything that we did today, that we work for, which are full of hardship and sacrification...may those things happened for the sake of Allah.
because as a student, we are 'very dissolved' in our own world (study, exam, club activities, friends, online) until at some point, we forgot about our reason to live here in this world. we forgot about Our God, Allah.
As in Al-Quran stated,
"And I (Allâh) created not the jinn and mankind except that they should worship Me (Alone)."
people who feel the halawatul iman are the ones who love Allah and the prophet more than anything else. so, how to do that? how to love Allah in that kind of manner? in the mag, the writer give a Malay saying, "tak kenal maka tak cinta.." or in english, "you dont love if you dont know it". well, same thing goes with Allah. you will not love if you dont really know who is Allah and if you dont know Allah, you will not know what is true-est purpose of LIFE!
and our heart (deepest heart or iman) is a medium that we use to know about Allah.
let me give an analogy,
if we put sugar on tounge that has an ulcer on it, surely, we will not feel the sweet taste, right?!
that's what Halawatul iman really is! we dont really really love and feel Allah if our heart is sick nor not clean, pure enough. astaghfirullah.
let us reflect ourselves. what we are doing now? is it will bring towards Allah or not. this is very important because every second that we have is like a business and our profit from our business will be revealed in hereafter. as long as we have chance to breathe, go do some profitable business!
actually, i want to say more but i have a mock exam tomorrow. very well, salam and may Allah bless us! amin ya rabbal 'alamin..
