This is a small world where I put together my ideas into a thought. A thought then written down by the 'sword' of my hands. I'm a believer of God. Hereafter, be my witness, just what have I done, within this blog.

"God, give me the strength to write".

The Believers Are Tested

﴿أَحَسِبَ النَّاسُ أَن يُتْرَكُواْ أَن يَقُولُواْ ءَامَنَّا وَهُمْ لاَ يُفْتَنُونَ ﴾
(Do people think that they will be left alone because they say: "We believe,'' and will not be tested.) (29:2)

This is a rebuke in the form of a question, meaning that Allah will inevitably test His believing servants according to their level of faith, as it recorded in the authentic Hadith:

«أَشَدُّ النَّاسِ بَلَاءً الْأَنْبِيَاءُ، ثُمَّ الصَّالِحُونَ، ثُمَّ الْأَمْثَلُ فَالْأَمْثَلُ، يُبْتَلَى الرَّجُلُ عَلَى حَسَبِ دِينِهِ، فَإِنْ كَانَ فِي دِينِهِ صَلَابَةٌ زِيدَ لَهُ فِي الْبَلَاء»
(The people most severly tested are the Prophets, then the righteous, then the next best and the next best. A man will be tested in accordance with the degree of his religious commitment; the stonger his religious commitment, the stronger his test.) 

This Ayah is like the Ayah,

﴿أَمْ حَسِبْتُمْ أَن تَدْخُلُواْ الْجَنَّةَ وَلَمَّا يَعْلَمِ اللَّهُ الَّذِينَ جَـهَدُواْ مِنكُمْ وَيَعْلَمَ الصَّـبِرِينَ
(Do you think that you will enter Paradise without Allah knowing those of you who fought (in His cause) and knowing those who are the patient) (3:142) 

There is a similar Ayah in Surat At-Tawbah. And Allah says:

﴿أَمْ حَسِبْتُمْ أَن تَدْخُلُواْ الْجَنَّةَ وَلَمَّا يَأْتِكُم مَّثَلُ الَّذِينَ خَلَوْاْ مِن قَبْلِكُم مَّسَّتْهُمُ الْبَأْسَآءُ وَالضَّرَّآءُ وَزُلْزِلُواْ حَتَّى يَقُولَ الرَّسُولُ وَالَّذِينَ ءَامَنُواْ مَعَهُ مَتَى نَصْرُ اللَّهِ أَلاَ إِنَّ نَصْرَ اللَّهِ قَرِيبٌ ﴾
(Or think you that you will enter Paradise without such (trials) as came to those who passed away before you They were afflicted with severe poverty and ailments and were so shaken that even the Messenger and those who believed along with him said, "When (will come) the help of Allah'' Yes! Certainly, the help of Allah is near!) (2:214) 

Allah says here:

﴿وَلَقَدْ فَتَنَّا الَّذِينَ مِن قَبْلِهِمْ فَلَيَعْلَمَنَّ اللَّهُ الَّذِينَ صَدَقُواْ وَلَيَعْلَمَنَّ الْكَـذِبِينَ ﴾
(And We indeed tested those who were before them so that Allah will know those who are true, and will know those who are liars.) 

Meaning, He will make know which are sincere in their claim to be believers from those who are lying. Allah, may He be glorified and exalted, knows what has happened in the past and what is yet to come, and He knows how that which will not happen would have happened if it were to happen. All the Imams of Ahlus-Sunnah wal-Jama`ah are agreed on this. This is the view of Ibn `Abbas and others concerning phrases such as the Ayah,

﴿إِلاَّ لِنَعْلَمَ﴾
(only that We know) (2:143). 

Meaning, only to see - because seeing has to do with what is there, but knowledge is broader than seeing, since it includes what is not present as well as what is.

﴿أَمْ حَسِبَ الَّذِينَ يَعْمَلُونَ السَّيِّئَاتِ أَن يَسْبِقُونَا سَآءَ مَا يَحْكُمُونَ ﴾
(Or think those who do evil deeds that they can outstrip Us Evil is that which they judge!) 

Means, those who are not believers should not think that they will escape such trials and tests, for ahead of them lies a greater and more severe punishment. Allah says:

﴿أَمْ حَسِبَ الَّذِينَ يَعْمَلُونَ السَّيِّئَاتِ أَن يَسْبِقُونَا﴾
(Or think those who do evil deeds that they can outstrip Us) 

Meaning, "escape'' from Us.
﴿سَآءَ مَا يَحْكُمُونَ﴾
(Evil is that which they judge!) 
What they think is evil.

Thus We Pray

Assalamualaikum wrt wbt.

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

I feel that currently I'm losing my grip on everything . Guide me. Give me the strength I need to face this trial oh Allah. You clearly said in Quran ;

﴿وَقَالَ رَبُّكُـمْ ادْعُونِى أَسْتَجِبْ لَكُمْ إِنَّ الَّذِينَ يَسْتَكْبِرُونَ عَنْ عِبَادَتِى سَيَدْخُلُونَ جَهَنَّمَ دَخِرِينَ ﴾
(And your Lord said: "Call upon Me, I will answer you. Verily, those who scorn My worship they will surely enter Hell in humiliation!'') (Mu'min : 60)

So please oh Allah, hear my prayer, forgive me upon what I've done, please accept my good deeds, and give me what i need the most, not what i always want. 

Your servant,
I'm A Muslim.

Let Allah Be Your 1st Love

Assalamualaikum wrt wbt.

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

Before this, i always let 'Love' to be undefined. This way, it will be easy enough for me to find the real meaning of 'Love'. I'll be happy if 'Love' is defined as i wanted it to be and as an advantage for me is that, I'll never strayed away from my own defined 'Love'.

Few days ago, I had a chance (alhamdulillah, praises be to Allah) to go for a forum. This forum specifically discussed about 'Love'. As always, i just wanted to hear what the panelists would say about 'Love' and how would they defined 'Love'. Interestingly, they introduced few meanings of 'Love' from a lot of resources and what kept me to the end of the discussion is that one of panelist said, he defined 'Love' as a two different, realistic categories : 1st is 'Loves' that been pleased by Allah, and the 2nd is vice versa.

Really, 'Love' is something that can be defined by anyone. What is left is that, is the way we define 'Love' blessed by Allah?. If yes, 'Love' should brought you the the path that Allah pleased upon it. Let 'Love' comes naturally, in the end we should see the one and only true and pure 'Love' is the 'Love' to Allah swt. If it is not, it is still not to late to start loving rather than not to be loved by the Creator of 'Love'.

Ease Me Owh Allah

Assalamualaikum wrt wbt.

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

Alhamdulillah (praises be to Allah), Allah made my life that way. He was the one whom made my whole life written, destined upon anything he wanted me to be. As I believe it that way, I do hope, that what destined for me doesn't make me become far from You. Instead, I really hope it does make me nearer to You oh Allah.

Alhamdulillah, at hard time like this, I always feel your existence around me. You did watch over me, You did heard me and my prayer, You did been near to me. I kind of love this situation, where we been nearest to each other, as between God and his humble servants.

"Owh Allah, comfort me. Make it easy for me to go through this life. Ease me on my way of being a good Muslim physician. Forgive me upon what I had done in the past. As You are the One and only, You alone I worship and You alone I ask for help."
