..the missing headline..
“You see, the way I see it, people deny God. Shirk'”.
I went to this talk on, “11 perkara yang membatalkan Tauhid’ by Ustaz Hafiz, a MAS pilot cum ustaz, on Saturday night, even though I had this invitation to go to this dinner in Hyatt Regency Kuantan that same very night.
I have this reluctance, of meeting socialites at luxurious dinner gatherings,well, they tend to let me drift into my passionate world of wordly -materialistic-individualistic-ego-centrism-hungriness-being. Sometimes, you get lost.
Ustaz Hafiz was very analytical, observant in his being.
So, he talk about this important matter of establishing, Tauhid. I like the lecture given by Prof. Omar on the implications of Tauhid on one’s life. It is so important that you never should abandon Allah.
In those mixed feeling of funny-thoughts and despair, I was wondering how many times a day I would be forgetting my God? subconsciously and consciously. Interesting, to see that, when you forget your little humanly-being, you would be forgetting this Almighty power that, sustain your being.
So, he started by the definition of tauhid, and some important issues regarding Ahli-sunnah wal-jamaah. I have to do some reading first.
One of the things yang important was;” of the issues regarding Bomoh”, Bomoh, pawang, shamans are all the same synonym. How people are misguided by their-so-called “power”. How you can actually heal a disease? How do you cure a disease?
On the contrary, I am a medical student and still studying medicine, may be later on I’ll become specialist, and I was relating that to my career. How easily one can fall into shirk after consciously saying he heals people. I was reflecting, how one Muslim doctor would approach his patient regarding the matter of Tauhid in terms of disease cure?
Do you know that shirk or Syirik is one of the dosa-dosa besar?
The same thing happen, when I went to this talk by Bro.Azman, he mentioned something very important that most of the people who were there didn’t listen carefully. (He made a joke before that)
He said that, one of the problem that facing the ummah is the main one.
The way I see it, the most important thing in developing what-ever-it-is-you-want-to-develop, from an individual self-development, to family-relations and parenting and to building great-nations of freedom and prosperity is still, Tauhid.
This is the thing that is most fundamental of all.
Realizing that there is a God.
p/s: Does it ever occur to you that, ambivalent feeling exist in us all the time? Love-hate, liked-dislike, want-and-not-wanting. sure-and-doubt.
Confused? Quran dan sunnah dekat jer!
2:139 “Katakanlah: “”Apakah kamu memperdebatkan dengan kami tentang Allah, padahal Dia adalah Tuhan kami dan Tuhan kamu; bagi kami amalan kami, bagi kamu amalan kamu dan hanya kepada-Nya kami mengikhlaskan hati,”
2:139 Say: Will ye dispute with us about Allah, seeing that He is our Lord and your Lord; that we are responsible for our doings and ye for yours; and that We are sincere (in our faith) in Him?
