Well, for the KISASians out there, I know you can predict what I will write after this.
This pieces of word is not just words …it’s actually a verse from the Holy Quran, Surah Hud (verse 112) but it had been made as my school’s motto and been embedded on our school badge..
Maybe this words are easy to be said,shouted,and pronounced with fury,spirit and a good will but did you know that this words had turned Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) hair gray?
It is related in a hadith that Rasulullah (Sallallahu alaihe wasallam) once came out of his house, wiping his hands on his blessed beared. Abu Bakr and Umar R.A. were sitting in the Masjid at that time. When AbuBakr R.A. saw this he said: ‘O Messenger of Allah, may my father and mother be sacrificed for you. How early you have aged’. Then he began to weep. Rasulullah (Sallallahu alaihe wasallam) said: “Surahs like Surah Hud have made me old”.
It demands us to be consistent and istiqamah in all of our doings as a Muslim.However,talking is as easy as ABC.Me myself found it very hard to continue to do what I’ve done and being taught at KISAS such as performing solat early,reciting ma’surat,al Mulk before sleep and reciting the Quran.I want to thank all my friends that advised me before coming home this holiday especially Thariqians that Imam Ghazali told in one of his Books, every three days that passed without reciting any Holy verses from the Quran, a black spot will emerge in our heart until a phase where our inner heart will be completely covered with the black spots.It will make us hard to understand lessons and to receive advices from other people.
The truth is,the difficulty to be consistent or istiqamah in our doings is caused by lot of temptations in our respective houses.Internet,games,family,friends,events …all of this had made istiqamah almost impossible..
Can you believe that only the earlier days of my return to home this holiday that I had performed all my doings in KISAS?!
It;s hard…Even the blessed prophet is having trouble to do it….
But remember, The Struggle in This World is Bitter, Because The Reward In the Hereafter is Sweet.
