Tips for making the most out of your Salah

Image
1) Before making your Salah, think of this : Have you ever considered the fact that you are praying to the king of kings ? That when you hear the adhan or check your prayer times, you get this

overwhelming feeling that your lord is calling you upon him?


2) Rather than considering salah as one of those long daily rituals you have to carry out because it's part of the 'deen' - why not look at it as meanginful conversation with God. A time during the day where you put all your worldly matters in the hands of God and ask him to bless you and help you. You know He can.


3) When you're praying avoid looking up at the sky or around you, no matter how fidgety you can be. This only makes you distracted and will take the worth out of your Salah. How would you like it if you are having a conversation with someone and they keep turning away ? The best way to stop this from happening, is praying in a quiet room away from all the noise and distractions of life.


4) Avoid…

REGRET-Inspiring Stories

Image
Once, a group of people were traveling on rocks at night. A voice came from the sky that whosoever picks up the rocks will regret and whosoever doesn't pick up the rocks will regret. Now, the people were confused. How can this be? Whether you pick up the rocks or not, you will regret!

Anyway, some people picked up the rocks and some didn't. In the morning when they reached their homes, they saw that the rocks turned into diamonds. Now, those people who didn't pick up the rocks started regretting saying, "If only we had picked up some rocks." Those people who did pick some rocks also started regretting saying, "Why didn't we pick up more rocks?" Both sides ended up regretting.

Dear Muslims, this same incident will take place with us on the Day of Judgment. Those people who spent their time in useless things will start regretting by looking at those who achieved a great position in Paradise by spending their time in the way of Allah (SWT…

Assalamaualaikum Wr. Wb.
UPDATE!!!

Kisah Umar menghukum anaknya karena zina telah disebut dalam kitab al-Maudhu’aat (Hadist-Hadits Palsu) karya Ibnu Jauzi. Lengkap teksnya sebagai berikut :

 عَنْ سَعِيدِ بْنِ مَسْرُوقٍ قَالَ: " كَانَتِ امْرَأَةٌ تَدْخُلُ عَلَى آلِ عُمَرَ أَوْ مَنْزِلِ عُمَرَ وَمَعَهَا صَبِيٌّ، فَقَالَ: مَنْ ذَا الصَّبِيُّ مَعَكِ؟ فَقَالَتْ: هُوَ ابْنُكَ، وَقَعَ عَلَيَّ أَبُو شَحْمَةَ فَهُوَ ابْنُهُ. قَالَ: فَأَرْسَلَ إِلَيْهِ عُمَرُ فَأَقَرَّ. فَقَالَ عُمَرُ لِعَلِيٍّ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُمَا: اجْلِدْهُ. فَضَربهُ عمر خمسين، وضربه على خمسين. قَالَ: فَأُتِيَ بِهِ. فَقَالَ لِعُمَرَ: يَا أَبَة قَتَلْتَنِي. فَقَالَ: إِذَا لقِيت رَبك عزوجل فَأَخْبِرْهُ أَنَّ أَبَاكَ يُقِيمُ الْحُدُودَ ".

Dari Sa’id bin Masruq, beliau berkata ada seorang perempuan selalu berulang-alik ke keluarga atau rumah Sayyidina Umar r.a. Bersamanya ada seorang anak bayi. Pada suatu hari Sayyidina Umar bertanya : “Anak siapakah bersamamu ini?” Perempuan itu menjawab, “Inilah cuc…

INSPIRING STORIES-THE LOST WATCH

THE LOST WATCH

There once was a farmer who discovered that he had lost his watch in the barn. It was no ordinary watch because it had sentimental value for him. After searching high and low among the hay for a long while; he gave up and enlisted the help of a group of children playing outside the barn.

He promised them that the person who found it would be rewarded.

Hearing this, the children hurried inside the barn, went through and around the entire stack of hay but still could not find the watch. Just when the farmer was about to give up looking for his watch, a little boy went up to him and asked to be given another chance.f

The farmer looked at him and thought, "Why not? After all, this kid looks sincere enough." So the farmer sent the little boy back in the barn. After a while the little boy came out with the watch in his hand! The farmer was both happy and surprised and so he asked the boy how he succeeded where the rest had failed.

The boy replied, "I…

Assalamualaikum.. 
This story make me remember one thing that
Allah is the best planners,,

It related that a woman went to a Prophet Dawud (A.S) and said “O Prophet of Allah is your Lord an oppressor or is he just?”

The prophet replied, “Woe unto you, O woman, He is the All-Just, Who never
oppresses. What is your story?”

She explained that she was a widow, with three daughters and that she provided for them by what she would spin with her hands. She explained, “Yesterday, I tied what I had spun into a red cloth to sell in the marketplace so as to provide for my children.

As I was walking, a bird came and snatched the cloth of me and flew away, leaving me with nothing to sell for the provision of my children.”

As the woman was speaking to Dawud, someone came knocking on his door. He gave permission for them to enter and learned that they were ten businessmen bringing with them one hundred dinars each.

They said “O Prophet of Allah, give this wealth to one that is deserving…

Inspiring Stories: Corn Farmer Story

Image
Bismillah
Salam Alaikum Warohmatullahi Wa Barokatuhu 

There was a farmer who grew superior quality, award-winning corn in his farm. Each year, he entered his corn in the state fair where it won honors & prizes.

One year a newspaper reporter interviewed him and learned something interesting about how he grew his corn. The reporter discovered that the farmer shared his seed corn with his neighbors.

"How can you afford to share your best seed corn with your neighbors when they are entering corn in competition with yours each year?" The reporter asked. "Why brother" '' The farmer replied, "Didn't you know? The wind picks up pollen grains from the ripening corn and swirls it from field to field.

If my neighbors grow inferior, sub-standard & poor quality corn, cross-pollination will steadily degrade the quality of my corn. If I have to grow good corn, I must help my neighbors to grow good corns."

The farmer gave a superb insight into the conn…

Mereka Menghina Nabiku, Menghina Agamaku

Image
Entah perasaan apa yang seharusnya aku ungkapkan, kata apa yang semestinya lantang aku teriakkan, sikap apa yang selayaknya sigap ku tunjukkan, ketika mendengar ricuh pemberitaan, membaca paragraf-paragraf tulisan yang menghina, mencaci dan memaki Nabi Ku, merendahkan Agamaku.
Apakah aku harus tendang kiri tendang kanan atau lempar depan, lempar belakang, untuk menunjukkan bentuk kecintaan dan ketaatan. Atau berpura-pura Tuli, seolah tak mendengar....entahlah!!!
Apakah aku harus berteriak dan turun ke jalan-jalan, dengan penuh semangat balik menghujat, melaknat dan membakar semua yang berbau barat, untuk menunjukkan sikap tersinggung dan keberatan. Atau pura-pura buta, seolah tak melihat.....entahlah!!!

Ini memang bukanlah hal yang pertama dan saya juga yakin tidak akan menjadi yang terakhir, dan ini juga bukan hal yang baru. Kita tentu ingat Nabi kita saw juga sering diperlakukan sedemikian hina , difitnah, dicaci, dimaki ketika beliau masih hidup, tapi sikap apa yang Beliau saw tu…

Belajar Dari Kesabaran Rasulullah saw.

Image
Assalamualaikum Warohmatullahi Wa Barokaatuhu
Semoga kisa ini bisa menjadi pelajaran berharga bagi kita, untuk menghadapi berbagai fitnah, hinaan dan cercaan terhadap Agama, dan Nabi saw. akhir-akhir ini.
Berikut adalah kisah, yang menceritakan bagaimana kesabaran Rasulullah saw. dalam mengahadapi berbagai macam hinaan ketika beliau berjuang menyebarkan islam.

Bukan hanya sekali saja Nabi dihina. Bahkan ada seorang wanita tua yang berani mencerca Nabi. Setiap kali Nabi melintas muka rumahnya, kala itu pula si wanita meludahkan air liurnya, “cuh,cuh,cuh.” Peristiwa itu berulangkali terjadi, bahkan hampir setiap hari.

Suatu kali, ketika Nabi lewat di depan rumahnya, si wanita tadi tak lagi meludahinya. Bahkan, batang hidungnya saja tak kelihatan pula. Nabi pun menjadi “kangen” akan air ludah si wanita tadi. Karena penasaran, Nabi lantas bertanya kepada seseorang, “Wahai Fulan, tahukah engkau, dimanakah wanita pemilik rumah ini, yang setiap kali aku lewat selalu meludahiku?”

Bahaya Pornografi bagi Syaraf manusia

Image
Dalam seminar mengenai dampak pornografi terhadap kerusakan otak di Jakarta, ahli bedah syaraf dari Rumah Sakit San Antonio, Amerika Serikat, Donald L. Hilton Jr, MD mengatakan bahwa adiksi (kecanduan) mengakibatkan otak bagian tengah depan yang disebut Ventral Tegmental Area (VTA) secara fisik mengecil.“Pornografi menimbulkan perubahan konstan pada neorotransmiter dan melemahkan fungsi kontrol. Ini yang membuat orang-orang yang sudah kecanduan tidak bisa lagi mengontrol perilakunya,” kata Hilton serta menambahkan adiksi pornografi juga menimbulkan gangguan memori. Kondisi itu, tidak terjadi secara cepat dalam waktu singkat namun melalui beberapa tahap yakni kecanduan yang ditandai dengan tindakan impulsif, ekskalasi kecanduan, desensitisasi dan akhirnya penurunan perilaku. “Dan kerusakan otak akibat kecanduan pornografi adalah yang paling berat, lebih berat dari kecanduan kokain,” 14 (empat belas) fatamorgana tentang pornografi yang terlanjur tercipta secara tidak sengaja o…

Who Was Prophet Muhammad saw.?

Who was Prophet Muhammad Sal Allahu Alihi Wa Salam?
This is the character Prophet Muhammad
He was the messenger of Allah who carried his mission as Allah instructed Him to. Among His message lets look at his life:


His dress generally consisted of a shirt, tamad (trousers), a sheet thrown round the shoulders and a turban. On rare occasions, he would put on costly robes presented to him by foreign emissaries in the later part of his life (Ahmed, Musnad, Hafiz Bin Qaiyyam).

His blanket had several patches (Tirmizi). He had very few spare clothes, but he kept them spotlessly clean (Bukhari). He wanted others also to put on simple but clean clothes.

Once he saw a person putting on dirty clothes and remarked,"Why can't this man wash them." (Abu Dawud, Chapter "Dress").

On another occasion he enquired of a person in dirty clothes whether he had any income. Upon getting a reply in the affirmative, he observed, "When Allah has blessed you with His bounty, your appe…

Saat Aku Lanjut Usia

Image
Sebuah Lyric lagu lama miliknya SheilaOn7 "Saat aku lanjut Usia" sampai saat ini masih terngiang di ingatan, entahlah mungkin karna makna dalam lyric lagu ini yang kedung membekas atau karna hal lain, yang jelas lagu ini memiliki makna yang menurut saya begitu dalam dan semoga saja semua dari kita bisa seperti lyric dalam lagu ini, ketika usia sudah menyapa  rentanya senja.


Saat aku lanjut usia
Saat ragaku mulai terasa tua
Tetaplah kau selalu di sini
Menemani, aku bernyanyi

Saat rambutku mulai rontok
Yakinlah ku akan tetap setia
Memijit pundakmu,
hingga kau tertidur pulas


Saat perutku mulai buncit
Yakinlah ku tetap yang terseksi,
Dan tetaplah kau s’lalu menanti
Nyanyianku, dimalam hari
Genggam tanganku saat tubuhku terasa linu
Ku peluk erat tubuhmu saat dingin menyerangmu
Kita lawan bersama, dingin dan panas dunia
Saat kaki kita telah lemah, kita saling menopang
Hingga nanti di suatu pagi, salah satu dari kita mati
Sampai jumpa, dikehidupan yang lain
