Kiamat Besar & Kiamat Kecil Datang Tiba-Tiba
www.iluvislam.com
Ustaz Zaharuddin*
Editor: Lailatulema

Pesanan editor: Berikutan pelbagai bencana alam yang berlaku akhir-akhir ini membuatkan saya berfikir berkenaan tanda-tanda kiamat yang dikhabarkan oleh Rasululllah saw dan seperti yang termaktub dalam Al-Quran. Apakah kita masih berlengah dan leka dengan dunia? Marilah wahai sahabat, kita selami artikel tulisan Ustaz Zaharuddin ini.

Kiamat besar disebutkan oleh Allah akan datang secara tiba-tiba, tanpa dapat diramal secara tepat oleh manusia. Nabi Muhammad hanya diberikan oleh Allah ilmu berkenaan tanda-tanda hampirnya sahaja. Tiada siapa yang mampu meneka tarikh tepatnya, sama ada tahun atau bulannya.

Sesiapa yang cuba mengira-ngira sama ada berdasarkan jumlah dan ayat al-Quran dan sebagainya, ia sebenarnya sedang melakukan kekarutan dan menyeleweng dari jalan yang benar.

فَهَلْ يَنظُرُونَ إِلَّا السَّاعَةَ أَن تَأْتِيَهُم بَغْتَةً فَقَدْ جَاء أَشْرَاطُهَا فَأَنَّى لَهُمْ إِذَا جَاءتْهُمْ ذِكْرَاهُمْ

Ertinya : Maka tidaklah yang mereka tunggu-tunggu melainkan hari kiamat (iaitu) kedatangannya kepada mereka dengan tiba-tiba, kerana sesungguhnya telah datang tanda-tandanya. Maka apakah faedahnya bagi mereka kesedaran mereka itu apabila hari kiamat sudah datang? ( Surah Muhammad : 18)

Itu perihal kiamat besar, namun disampingnya ada kiamat kecil, iaitu kematian yang sentiasa basah di bibir Rasulullah mengingatkan umat dan sahabatnya. Kiamat kecil ini juga kerap datang secara tiba-tiba, sehingga kata orang ia datang "tanpa seorang itu mampu atau sempat bersedia".

Hakikatnya itu tidak benar, sebenarnya Allah mendatangkan kematian setelah kita semua diberikan masa dan infra secukupnya untuk bersedia. Cuma kita yang terlalu lalai dan terhijab dek kerana kecantikan dan kenikmatan sementara yang wujud di atas dunia ini.

Saya suka berkongsi tiga video melalui entry ini. Satu darinya telah saya kongsikan di facebook saya, namun bagi meluaskan lagi jangkauan kebaikan yang boleh diperolehi dari video ini, saya muatkan ia di web ini. Sebuah video yang saya tonton berkali-kali, dan sebuah video yang mampu mengalirkan air mata.

Video ini memperlihatkan seorang yang dijemput kematian ketika betul-betul sesudah solat. Betapa kita tidak dapat menjangka bila nyawa akan ditarik. Setiap organ yang berfungsi di dalam tubuh kita adalah dengan izin dan kuasa Allah, kita tidak mampu mengawalnya. Kita tidak tahu, bila tiba-tiba ia jammed. Terhentinya ia beberapa minit cukup untuk menamatkan umur kita di atas dunia. Ia bukan seperti enjin kereta yang boleh ditangguh-tangguh untuk memulihkannya.




Kekaguman saya kepada individu ini bertambah apabila keadaan kematian yang begitu baik ( pada hari Jumaat 1 Jan 2010 adalah hari Jumaat dan beliau datang awal ke masjid) di sebarluaskan oleh ramai, malah dengan izin Allah, mampu menyedarkan dan menginsafkan ramai yang menontonnya. Ketika itu, terfikir bahawa kematiannya juga adalah sebuah dakwah yang hebat.

Setiap aliran darah, denyutan jantung, fungsinya hati, usus dan sebagainya, semua dikawal oleh kuasa Allah ta'ala. Bukan hanya apa yang di dalam tubuh malah juga semua yang diluarnya, Lihat video ini bagaimana secara tiba-tiba tiang boleh jatuh dan menimpa pejalan kaki.




Mungkin ada yang terfikir, seorang ahli sukan yang ‘fit' cergas dan sihat, mungkin tidak akan menerima serangan jantung, namun cuba lihat apa yang terjadi kepada pemain bolasepak Hungary ini . Selepas memberikan senyuman kepada pengadil yang memberikannya kad kuning dan terus...




LUPA

Ramai yang terlupa di akhirat sana, nikmat yang maha besar sedang menunggu bagi sesiapa yang bersedia dan sentiasa menambah persediaan dan bekalannya. Nikmat Syurga tidak mampu sama sekali digambar, sebagaimana pereka cipta kereta Ford di awal rekaannya tidak akan mampu sama sekali terbayang kereta Ferrari di zaman ini. Jika diandaikan seorang dari kita tiba-tiba melayang ke masa silam dan cuba menerangkan perihal bentuk dan enjin Ferrari, bentuk dan fungsi i-phone dan i-pad ,tentunya tiada siapa yang berada di zaman itu boleh membayangkannya.

Begitulah kenikmatan akhirat yang disebut oleh Nabi dari Allah ta'ala :

أعددت لعبادي الصالحين ما لا عين رأت ، ولا أذن سمعت ، ولا خَطَرَ على قلب بشر

Ertinya : Aku menyediakan bagi hambaku yang soleh (syurga) yang tiada mata yang telah pernah melihatnya (tidak mampu tergambar), dan tidak pernah didengari (kenikmatannya) oleh telinga dan tidak mampu terlintas (tahap kenikmatannya) oleh hati manusia. ( Riwayat Al-Bukhari & Muslim)

Manakala dalam catatan Imam Ahmad

إنه من يدخل الجنة ينعم ولا يبأس، لا تبلى ثيابه، ولا يفنى شبابه، في الجنة ما لا عين رأت، ولا أذن سمعت، ولا خطر على قلب بشر

Ertinya: Sesungguhnya sesiapa yang memasuki Syurga Allah akan dikurniakan nikmat yang tidak akan jemu, tidak binasa pakaiannya, tidak hilang kepemudaan/pemudiannya, apa yang di dalam Syurga, sesuatu yang mata tidak mampu tergambarnya, dan tidak pernah didengari (kenikmatannya) oleh telinga dan tidak mampu terlintas (tahap kenikmatannya) oleh hati manusia. (Riwayat Ahmad)

Para ulama menghuraikan, perihal Nabi Adam yang pernah mendiami Syurga tidak sama sekali bertembung dengan hadis ini kerana syurga itu sentiasa berubah-ubah nikmatnya dan tidak akan sama sekali membosankan. Luasnya tidak tercapai oleh bayangan aqal manusia. Menurut hadis, individu yang menerima syurga paling terbawah pun besarnya adalah beberapa kali ganda dunia hari ini, apatah lagi yang lainnya. Justeru itu, apa yang dilihat oleh nabi Adam, dengan mudah sekali bagi Allah mengubahkan kepada apa yang dikehendakiNya.

Akhirnya sekali, ingatlah pesan dan teguran Imam Hasan Al-basri:

ما رأيت يقينًا لا شك فيه أشبه من شك لا يقين فيه من الموت

Ertinya : Tidaklah aku melihat satu perkara yang amat pasti (yakin) serta tiada keraguan padanya akan datang tetapi diperlakukan seperti suatu perkara yang tidak pasti hadirnya, (seolah tidak yakin kewujudannya) lebih dari perihal kematian.

Sama-samalah kita berdoa agar sewaktu nyawa kita ditarik kita berada di dalam keadaan yang baik di sisi manusia, amat baik di sisi Allah. Janganlah dimatikan kita sewaktu terlanjur melakukan maksiat.

"April Fools? - or ' MUSLIM' FOOLS DAY?"

Assalamualaikum...

this is another version about the april fool. i hope we may get some iktibar from this post. amiin....



by Yusuf Estes

If we don't do something about correcting the education of our beloved brothers and sisters in Islam, then everyday on the internet is MUSLIM FOOLS DAY.


"April Fools? - or ' MUSLIM' FOOLS DAY?"
"April Fools Has Come and Past, Now Who's the Biggest Fool at Last?"

Holy Quran 33:69
"Yaa ayulatheena amanu attaqallah wa quloo qawlan sadeedan."
"O you who believe, fear Allah and always speak the truth."

Once again people are trying to fool the Muslims - We received the following email and felt it necessary deal with this subject - without 'fooling around' any longer.

Now as regards the incorrect story circulating amongst the Muslims on the Internet saying that April Fool's Day is the celebration of the kufar over the conquest of Muslim Spain. I felt that it was necessary to clarify a few points in the interest of truth, inshallah.
Bismillah Al Hamdulilah was Salat wa Salam ala Rasoolulah. Allahu Alim.
In the Name of Allah, I praise Allah and ask for His Peace upon Muhammad, ameen. Allah Alone is The All-Knower.



To continue:
Once again, Muslims are circulating a fabrication on the Internet trying to claim things which can easily be proven incorrect by Christians and non-Muslims who rejoice in watching us play the part of Everyday Fools.

The most recent story says that Christians could not conquer the Muslims there and sent spies to discover why. According to the story, they found that the Muslims there were on the 'Taqwah' (God Fearing and Pious) of Islam. Then the story says the Christians sent in alcohol and cigarettes which the Muslims used and lost their 'Taqwah' and then the Christians defeated the Muslims on April first and began celebrating 'April Fool's Day' ever since.
This story is not correct in many aspects.

1.) First, let us consider the historic fact that Muslim Spain ended on the 12th of January in the Christian year of 1492 A.D. Yet 'April Fool's Day was not heard of until over fifty years later.

Once upon a time, back in 16th-century France, before computers, people celebrated New Year's Day on March 25, the advent of spring. It was a festive time. They partied steadily until April 1. In 1564, when the calendar reformed and became Gregorian, under the influence of Pope Gregory, King Charles IX proclaimed, perhaps pompously, that New Year's Day should be celebrated on January 1st instead of in the spring. Diehard conservatives resisted the change (or perhaps didn't hear about it due to the absence of e-mail) and continued to celebrate New Year's from March 25 to April 1. During this period of spring festivity, the more flexible French mocked the rigid revelers by sending them foolish gifts and invitations to nonexistent parties. The victim of an April Fools' Day prank was called a "Poisson d 'Avril," or an "April Fish," because at that time of year, the sun was leaving the zodiacal sign of Pisces.

April Fools' Day hit its stride (avoiding the banana peel) in England in the 18th century, and was brought to colonial America by the English, Scottish, and French.

2.) Second, we should know that cigarettes were not even invented until AFTER the time of the fall of Muslim Spain (January 1492). According to the State College in Framingham, the Human Biology course by Dr. Roger Morrrissette, Ph.D., smoking of any kind did not exist in Spain until after it was brought back from the New World AFTER King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella had come to rule Spain.

This is from their website:

Introduction to Human Biology Framingham State College
Roger N. Morrrissette, Ph.D.

I. The History of Smoking.
1492: Columbus notes the natives of the New World smoke leaves.
1550: Spaniards begin cultivating tobacco in the West Indies to export to Europe.
1880: Tobacco use is widespread but people only use small amounts.

3.) Muslim Spain began to deteriorate at the time of Ibn Seenah and others who were beginning to use their logic in place of Divine Revelation of Allah. Some were very interested in the Greek and Roman philosophies and concepts and began to try to 'rethink' Islam much the same as some 'modernists' are doing today. It was right after this that Muslim Spain began to divide up into small kingdoms and fight against each other for control and gold. They employed mercenaries from amongst the Christians and killed and destroyed each other for a number of years. When the Christians came against them the first time, they appealed to the ruler of Maghrib (Morocco) across the Mediterranean Sea who sent troops to quell the attacks. He stipulated that the Muslims must stop fighting each other and go back to the Islamic system of rule under one leader. They did not do it. When they began fighting each other again, the Christians came in very strong against them and this time the ruler of Morocco refused to help them. They lost battle after battle against the Roman Christians and finally the last stronghold of Islam fell to the Christian King, Ferdinand, in January of 1492. [for details order the video "Muslim Spain"]

So regarding the email claiming that April Fools Day is a celebration of the take over of Muslim Spain, it is clear the whole thing is a made up lie. This is totally unacceptable and should be brought to the attention of the one who sent you this lie in the first place. A good Muslim would never accept to repeat lies and fabrications especially in presenting facts about the history of Islam.

If you have received such a letter it is your duty in front of Allah to write back to those who also received it and ask them to contact all of those on their lists and email the truth about this issue. And we should all fear a Day when we will stand in front of Allah and be asked about these matters.

If we don't do something about correcting the education of our beloved brothers and sisters in Islam, then everyday on the internet is MUSLIM FOOLS DAY.

Again, it is only Allah who has All Knowledge. May He forgive me my mistakes and guide us all to the right way, ameen.

just see both sides and take what considered the best. just work your brain to think! and to understand the true meaning of this. do not taqlid everything what people said because Allah The Almighty has given us,the human, aqli to use compared to others living thing on the Earth. so, believe the haq, leave the batil.

APRIL FOOL.


Assalamualaikum. Sorry for the long absence.
I hope everyone is doing just fine, alhamdulillah.
May our Iman and Amal are just as good too.

April fool? I bet some of you reading had at least once, experienced being the victim, or you yourself was one of those conducting the pranks.

What does Islam say about this?
Is it haraam or not?

Well, some say it is haraam and some say it is not, under their very own rationale. it is for us to judge. Let us look at the different opinions given by our muslim brothers.



THE ONE THAT SAYS IT IS HARAAAM.


Yes it is, because of the origins of April Fool's Day, OR because you would be lying, OR because you would be imitating the Kuffar. OR all three.

This is one version:

It was around a thousand years ago that Spain was ruled by Muslims. And the Muslim power in Spain was so strong that it couldn't be destroyed. The Christians of the west wished to wipe out Islam from all parts of the world and they did succeed to quite an extent. But when they tried to eliminate Islam in Spain and conquer it, they failed. They tried several times but never succeeded.

The unbelievers then sent their spies in Spain to study the Muslims there and find out what was the power they possessed and they found that their power was TAQWA. The Muslims of Spain were not just Muslims but they were practicing Muslims. They not only read the Quran but also acted upon it.

When the Christians found the power of the Muslims they started thinking of strategies to break this power. So they started sending alcohol and cigarettes to Spain free of cost. This technique of the west worked out and it started weakening the faith of the Muslims in particular the young generation of Spain. The result was that the Catholics of the west wiped out Islam and conquered the entire Spain bringing an end to the EIGHT HUNDRED LONG YEARS' RULE OF THE MUSLIMS in Spain. The last fort of the Muslims to fall, was Grenada (Gharnatah), which was on the 1st of April.

From that year onwards, every year they celebrate April fools day on the 1st of April, celebrating the day, they made a fool of the Muslims. They did not make a fool of the Muslim army at Gharnatah only, but of the whole Muslim Ummah. We, the Muslims, were fooled by the unbelievers. They have a reason to celebrate April fool day, to keep up the spirit.

Dear brothers and sisters, when we join in this celebration, we do so out of ignorance. If we had known about it, we would never have celebrated our own downfall.

So now, that we are aware of it, and now let us promise that we shall never celebrate this day. We should learn our lesson from the people of Spain, and shall try to become practicing Muslims, never to let anybody weaken our faith NOR FOOL ( OR MAKE A FOOL OF ) US ANY MORE.

*******
And even if not because of it's history, lying is Haram. Joking is considered lying also if it isn't true (unfortunately probably all of us still do this). Even if you were to feel content with just "joking", it is a Kafir "celebration", so by celelbrating it, we are imitating the Kuffar. We are supposed to separate ourselves and set examples with our actions, not drop ourselves to the level of the Kuffar. Our objective is to do Dawah by our actions, and this can't be done if we are blending in and adjusting our lifestyles with the Kuffar.

THE ONE THAT LEAVES IT TO YOU TO JUDGE.

Assalam alaikom dear brothers and sisters in Islam,

Bismillahir rahmanir rahim,

First of all I do not consider myself as a scholar to give fatwa but I am learning. Based on my very little and tiny knowledge I am saying something and I ask Allah (swt) for forgiveness if I say something incorrect which against our sweet deen.

I think before we say something haram, we really need to know whether it is mentioned by Allah (swt) in the Quran. If it is not mentioned as haram in Quran then we should not say that it is haram. Instead we could say that a true Muslim should not fool anybody (which includes Muslims and Non-Muslims) as it is mentioned in the Quran that “you will be rewarded for atom amount of good deeds that you have done in this life and also you will be accountable for atom amounts of bad deeds”. I do not remember exact ayah and which surah.

It is true that lying is completely prohibited in Islam as there is a beautiful hadith:
Narrated Abu Umamah (R): The Prophet (saw) said: “(a) I guarantee a home in Paradise for a person who gives up arguments and disputes even if he is on the truth. (b) And I also guarantee a home in the middle of the Paradise for a person who gives up lying (false statements) even while joking. (c) And I also guarantee a home in the hightest part of Paradise for a person who has a high standard of character.” (Abu Dawud, At-Tirmidhi, Nasai and Ibn Majah).

I remember one of the scholars was asked by someone that (a) is listening Music is haram and b) is keeping any animal (like dog, cat or any pictures which has ruh) at home is haram? He replied that don’t say anything haram to anybody unless it is really mentioned in the Quran as haram, instead you could say, choice is yours a) you wanna listen to music or you wanna listen to Quran recitation for which you will be rewarded, b) you like keep an animal/pictures of any animals at home or you want angel (malaikah) to be at your home because angels doesn’t come where there are any animals or any pictures of animals. Let them choose.

But pray for those who makes fun out of Muslims OR anybody, so that Allah (swt) gives them hadiah (guidance). If Allah (swt) can have His mercy to people who turns their back to Allah (swt) because He is the most merciful then why we wouldn’t try? Scholars says that if you make dua (supplicant) for others it also comes back to you, subhan-allah.

----IRSHAD----
SO, Allah has given us the greatest gift he did not shower the other creatures with. Use it wisely! It's sad to know some people even joke on death of a person ~

wassalamalaik.
