Sharing: A Relief :) ~

Alhamdulillah, all thanks is to Allah~

Today I managed to meet all my halaqah-mates at Dr Sadiah's home. Such a big relief, Alhamdulillah! :)

Meeting all my sisters in such a calm surrounding somehow had brings back my heart to the right track which I think had lost its path for quite a few moments. We discussed a lot about many things, including one big project which I never think that I will have the opportunity to do it. May Allah eases all the way, InsyaAllah. :)

When we discussed about Chapter Ar-Rum, verse 21, something had captured my attention while Umi was elaborating about the real meaning and hidden secret of the sequence in that verse. She did mentioned that Allah had guided us through this chapter that, for every single man (same thing also goes to woman), Allah had created a partner for them, then we may find repose in them, then, He put between these married couple the affection and mercy.

"And among His Signs is this, that He created for you wives from among yourselves, that you may find repose in them, and He has put between you affection and mercy. Verily, in that are indeed signs for a people who reflect."

Why I put kind of big emphasization on the word then here?

Umi said that actually, Allah had given us the proper steps that we shall follow in order to build a sakinah, mawaddah wa rahmah family through this verse. Unfortunately, most of people nowadays are practicing the wrong way by  finding the affection and mercy in their future life partner  first prior to get married and this phenomenon somehow had "killed" themselves when Allah had taken back these affection and mercy that they have found previously inside their partner once they get married. Can you think why this kind of phenomenon can happen? By rational thought, it is as simple as ABC, 123. Allah is our Creator and He had guided us on the right way that we shall take, but we did not follow the guidance that been provided to us. Plus, we go far ahead and move far forward by neglecting all His orders although we know deeply by heart that what we do is actually stray away from His path!

By right, according to this verse, we shall get married first, then we may find repose in our partner, and then Allah will put these affection and mercy between the two married person. We shall understand truly that mawaddah wa rahmah are basically belongs to Allah and He can give and take this precious gift from us whenever He wants to. Thus, thinking or perception like "Did he my Mr Right?" or "Did him  the best person that I shall get married with?" should never exist once we have did our Istikharah and give full submission and hope only to Allah swt. Remember, if we did everything only for Allah and we only rely on Him once we have decided on everything based on His guidance, Allah will always be with us regardless how good or bad the condition that comes after.

Another thing that I think quite interesting to be shared here is about a quote taken from a book from Indonesia (sorry, I can't remember the title).

"Ibadah is not a burden, but the most precious gift from Allah swt"

"Whenever we get closer to Allah, we will always get the calmness that we desired"

"Mengumpat adalah refleksi pada kotornya hati"

 "Agama adalah fitrah yang suci, dan perkara yang haram adalah racun kepada fitrah ini"

"Kekayaan terletak pada hati yang qanaah"

"Hasad dengki menghilangkan ketenangan dalam hati"

I think, this is all for now. Renung-renungkan, dan selamat beramal! :)
