|~NEVER LOSE FAITH~|
Bismillahirrahmanirrahim - In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
Assalamualaikum w.b.t. dear readers, (ana share something that ana's friend shared with me. Credits to Ukhti Siti Hajar) à
Rasulullah saw (pbuh) said.: "Those who possess these three things, it is believed that he will gain the beauty/sweetness of iman(faith). And those 3 things are à
- he loves Allah and His Messenger more than any other beings,
- he loves a person solely/just because of Allah,
- he despises to go back to the ways of a disbeliever (sinning) as he strongly hates to be thrown into Hell. " (Hadith Sahih Riwayat Bukhari dan Muslim)
Dear fellow brothers and sisters, let us integrate these 3 things in ourselves in order to successfully achieve the ultimate sweetness of iman within us.
So, why am I so pushy to urge you all to obtain this so-called sweetness? Well, as you can predict what I'm about to say, with this sweetness of iman, we will not complain of exhaustion and worn out in times of preaching.
With the sweetness of faith, we are always accepting (redha) and tawakkal (believe and afraid of Him) with all the tests by Allah. With the sweetness of faith, we are always prepared and on the alert for Islam, our way of life.
At times, we become tired and weak when preaching. Sometimes, we feel that we have done a lot of contribution in Islam, but what we get in return is just fatigue, depression, sadness and the list goes on. On top of that, many a times, those followers do not seem to appreciate what we share. Often, many of our friends do not acknowledge our efforts.
BUT PLEASE BEAR IN MIND, this missionary work is never about others around you. It concerns you and Him~! With the sweetness of iman, only to Allah should we place our full hope on. With the sweetness of iman, we will always be confident and believe in 'the hidden Blessings' that Allah has promised to His believers~~
"Now no person knows what delights of the eye are kept hidden(in reserve) fir them - as a reward for their good deeds" [32:17]
Let us strive and struggle (bermujahadah) in our race towards the sweetness of iman~! Hopefully, our hearts are constantly calm, peaceful and redha in upholding the words of God here on Earth.
