Best time of HUMAN LIFE

Best time of HUMAN LIFE

Ustadz Abdullah bin al-Buthoni Taslim, MA

Have you ever experienced the most beautiful moments in your life? What did you feel at that time? Certainly very happy. So you expect the moments that happen again.

Every human being would ever feel the happiest moments in his life. And each individual judge's finest hour, according to what dominates his heart and soul.

A businessman considers the happiest moment was when he managed to reap huge profits and multiply. People who are desperate to get a job position and feels happiest moment was when he won the dream job.

So a picture of humanity in assessing the most beautiful moments in their lives. Through this brief article, I invite the reader to consider and ponder carefully, which of all the joy and beauty that is true? So that people who achieve it means he has really felt the happiest moment in his life.

T Imam Ibn al-Qayyim said, "Verily, the forms of happiness (beauty) are prioritized by the human soul there are three (kinds):

1. Happiness (beauty) outside the human self. This beauty is a loan from someone else. He would disappear with the return of the loan. This is happiness (beauty) with cause property and position (worldly).

Such beauty is like the beauty of a person with clothes (beautiful) and her jewelry, but when your eyes through the cover itself so there was no one left on her keindahanpun!

In a story is told, there is a cleric who boarded a merchant ship with the richer. The ship then broke (and sank with all cargo goods). The merchants then necessarily be the ignoble and low self-esteem, whereas before they felt noble (proud) with their wealth. While the cleric when he got in the destination country, he was honored with a variety of gifts and honor (because of their knowledge). When the merchants who have become impoverished want to return to the country of origin, they asked the cleric, "Do you want to sent her a message or a letter to your relatives? Cleric replied," Yes, tell them, 'If you want to take the treasure (glory) then take the treasure that will not sink (missing) although the ship sinking, therefore make science as (goods) trade (you). "

2. Happiness (beauty) and the physical human body, such as health, physical and ideal limbs, cute, clean skin and powerful physique. The beauty of this, though much closer (in humans) compared with the first, but in essence this beauty outside ourselves and substance of man, because man is regarded as a human being with a soul and a heart, not (merely) with body and soul, as words of a poet:

Physical observer O, how great kepayahanmu with taking care of your body
Whereas you (called) man with your soul because your body is not the cause

Here [1] false and fake beauty belongs to the hypocrites who are not accompanied by the beauty of the soul and the heart, so that Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala denounced them in his word:

وإذا رأيتهم تعجبك أجسامهم وإن يقولوا تسمع لقولهم كأنهم خشب مسندة

And when you see them, their bodies make you amazed. Say you and if they obeyed them. as if they are leaning timber [al-Munâfiqûn/63: 4].

That is, they have a beautiful physical appearance, but their heart and soul full of meanness, fear and weakness, not like the appearance of their birth. [2]

3. Happiness (beauty) is true, the beauty of the human heart and soul of the beauty with useful knowledge which righteous deeds bear fruit.

Happiness is a fixed and eternal (in human beings) in all circumstances, always accompany the journey (life), even in all of nature to be passed, namely: the natural world, the grave and the hereafter. In this way a slave would be climbing the stairs of glory and the degree of perfection. "[3]

Blessed with best time of YOUR LIFE!
Based on the above, we know that the beauty and true happiness can only be achieved with a loved one righteous deeds Allah Almighty and mengutamakannya above all things that exist in the world.

This is true happiness recommended by Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala in His Word:

قل بفضل الله وبرحمته فبذلك فليفرحوا هو خير مما يجمعون

Say, "With the Grace of Allah and His mercy, let them rejoice with it. Gifts of Allah and His mercy is better than what they amass." [Yûnus/10: 58]

In this verse Allah Almighty commanded the believers to be proud of (excited and happy) with the grace of Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala give them. Almighty Allah states that His grace from the more beautiful and glorious than all the pleasures of the world are being pursued by the majority of people.

"The gift of Allah" in this verse is interpreted by the scholars commentators with "faith", while "Mercy of Allah" is interpreted as "al-Qur'ân". Both are beneficial knowledge and righteous deeds, as well as both guidance and the true religion (which was brought by the Prophet sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam). [4]

Shaykh 'Abdurrahman as-Sa'di t say, "Enjoyment of religion (faith) which is coupled with the happiness of the world and the hereafter can not be compared with all the worldly pleasures are only temporary and will go away." [5]

This is the ultimate happiness that is described by Imam Ibn al-Qayyim rahimahullah in his words, "All the command of Allah, His rights (worship) which is required of his servants, and all his prescribed law (essentially) is qurratul 'uyun (Conditioning view), as well as fun and enjoyment to the soul. With him will be relieved, happy, happy and feel perfection in this world and the hereafter. fact heart will not feel the happiness, fun and enjoyment are essential but with all that. Allah Almighty says:

يا أيها الناس قد جاءتكم موعظة من ربكم وشفاء لما في الصدور وهدى ورحمة للمؤمنين) 57 (قل بفضل الله وبرحمته فبذلك فليفرحوا هو خير مما يجمعون

O mankind, indeed has come to you from your Lord and a healing lesson for diseases in the chest and guidance and mercy for the believers. Say, "By the Grace of Allah and His mercy, let them rejoice with it. Gifts and His mercy is better than what is collected (by humans)" [Yûnus/10 :57-58] "[6]
Based on this, meaning the most beautiful moment in a person's life is when Allah Almighty bestow His Taufik told the man to follow the path of Islam and instruct him to understand his instructions and practice in order to attain His good pleasure.

This is what delivered the Prophet sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam to the noble Companions, Ka'b bin Malik radi' anhu, when Allah Almighty revealed verse al-Qur'ân [7] of repentance Ka'b radi 'anhu and two other companions radi anhum who received Allah Almighty. Prophet sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam said to him with a beaming, "Blessed is the happiest day ever since you were born you through your mother." [8]

Prophet sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam named the day of receipt by the repentance of a servant of Allah Almighty as the happiest moment in his life. Because of the perfect Islamic repentance of a servant. When he entered his happiness and that's the beginning of Islam when Allah Almighty will accept the repentance that falsifies and peak happiness, that that day was the happiest moment in his life. [9]

Imam Ibn al-Qayyim rahimahullah said, "In this hadith there are arguments (which shows) that the happiest and most important day for a servant absolutely was when he repented to Allah and Allah will accept the repentance .... If anyone asks, 'How can (perhaps) a day This (said to be) better than the day he converted to Islam? ' The answer, "Today is the day he's a complement and supplement to Islam. Today he converted to Islam is beginning kebahagiaanya, and repentance is the complement and supplement kebahagiaanya, wallahu musta'ân [10].

In line with the above hadith, sayings noble Companions, Anas bin Malik radi 'anhu which describes the Companions g joy when he heard the words of the Prophet sallallaahu' alaihi wa sallam. Anas bin Malik radi 'anhu said, "We have never felt joy after (with excitement) Islam exceeded our excitement when I heard word of the Prophet sallallaahu' alaihi wa sallam," You (will be gathered in heaven) with the one you love. "So I love The Prophet sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam, Abu Bakr radi' anhu, Umar radi 'anhu, and I expect to be with them because my love for them even though I have not been able to do as their deeds. " [11]

This hadith shows that the happiest moment for the perfect faith, like the Companions of the Prophet sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam was when they got the guidance to the path of Islam and when they understand and can practice the instructions of Allah Almighty in order to achieve His pleasure.

Allah Almighty says:

قل إنما أنا بشر مثلكم يوحى إلي أنما إلهكم إله واحد فمن كان يرجو لقاء ربه فليعمل عملا صالحا ولا يشرك بعبادة ربه أحدا

Anyone who expects an encounter with his Lord, let him work righteous deeds, and let him not associate anything in worship with Allah, to Him [al-Kahfi/18: 110].
This is the most beautiful moment awaited by the personnel of the faith and fear of Allah Almighty, which is the time when I met with him to get a reply from the good and His glory. [12]

In a prayer, Imam Hasan al-Basri rahimahullah said, "O Allah, make the best of our deeds before death (pick) us, and make the best of days (for) us is the day when we met you. "[13]

These are the people who love encounter with Allah, then Allah Almighty too. In a hadith, the Prophet sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam said, "Whoever loves encounters with Allah, then Allah loves encounter with him." [14]

Prophet sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam describes the cautious excitement when meeting Allah Almighty in the words he sallallaahu' alaihi wa sallam, "The person who is fasting will feel the excitement of the two (ie) when the joy and excitement when iftar meet his Lord" [15 ]

Then, the happiest moment for the people who met with the believers when Allah Almighty is when they see his face mighty noble. This is the highest pleasure that Almighty Allah has promised to those who exceed the other pleasures in heaven. Almighty Allah says, (which means), "For people who do good, there is the best reward (heaven) and enhancements (ie see the face of Allah). And their faces are not covered in black dust and not (also) humiliation. They are the hosts of heaven. they abide therein "[Yûnus/10: 26]
The word "extra" in this verse is interpreted directly by the Prophet sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam in the authentic hadith, that pleasures see the face of Allah Almighty. And he is the nicest guy n understand the meaning of the word of Almighty Allah. [16]

In a saheeh hadeeth from a noble friend, Suhaib bin Sinan radi 'anhu, the Prophet sallallaahu' alaihi wa sallam said, "If the people of Paradise have entered Paradise, Allah Almighty He will say," Are you (O people of Paradise) wants something in addition (from the pleasures of heaven)? So they said, 'Did not you have whiten our faces? Did you not have put us into heaven and save us from the (wrath) hell? ' Then Allah opened the hijab (covering his face Yang Maha Mulia), and the hosts of heaven never get a (pleasure) that is more to their liking than the look (face) Almighty Allah "Then the Prophet sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam read the verse above [17].

Imam Ibn Kathir rahimahullah said, "(Enjoyment) greatest and highest (which exceeds all) enjoyment in heaven see the face of Allah is mighty noble. Because this is the "extra" the greatest (exceeds) all (enjoyment) which Allah gave to the people of Paradise. They are entitled to the enjoyment of not (solely) because of their deeds, but because of the grace and mercy of Allah. "[18]

In another hadith, the Prophet sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam confront this supreme pleasure to the nature lover Almighty Allah mentioned in the above hadith, which always miss the encounter with Him. Prophet sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam said in his prayer, "(Ya Allah) I ask You pleasure see thy face (in the Hereafter), and I ask You desire to meet with you (when the world) , in the absence of danger harm and slander the misleading "[19]

Imam Ibn al-Qayyim in the book Ighâtsatul Lahafân [20] explain the relevance of these two things. That is the highest enjoyment in the afterlife (see the face of Allah Almighty) is the reward that Allah Almighty give to someone who always expects and missed a meeting with Allah Almighty. They are lovers who have felt His perfection and sweetness of faith, of the form a sense of calm and happy when closer to Him and remembrance.

In other words, people who will find the most beautiful moment in the Hereafter (ie the time to see the face of Allah Almighty) is when a person in the world, he felt that the happiest moment in his life was when he worship and draw closer to the One who loves, Allâh Azza wa Jalla.

Thus the picture of the most beautiful moments for the lover of Allah Almighty in this world and the hereafter. Compare with the most beautiful moments of human version now! Then ask ourselves, "What do we consider to be the best time of our lives?"

Blessed is the servant of Allâh who make the happiest moment in his life when he worships and draw closer to Allah Almighty. Blessed with good tidings from Allah Almighty, which means, "Verily those who say," Our Lord is Allah "and then they confirmed their establishment (beristiqâmah), then the angels will descend upon them (by giving the good news)," Do you feel fear and grieve, and rejoice in the (gain) which has been promised paradise of Allah unto you. helper-We are the helpers in the life of the world and in the Hereafter; therein (Paradise) you will have what you want and getting (too) what you ask ". As an entree (the eternal return to you) from (Allah) the Most-Forgiving, Most Merciful" [Fusshilat/41 :30-32].

In another verse, Allah Almighty says:

ألا إن أولياء الله لا خوف عليهم ولا هم يحزنون) 62 (الذين آمنوا وكانوا يتقون) 63 (لهم البشرى في الحياة الدنيا وفي الآخرة لا تبديل لكلمات الله ذلك هو الفوز العظيم

Know, verily trustees (lover) of Allah, there is no concern for them and not (also) they grieve. (Namely) those who believe and they are always cautious. Good news for those in the life of this world and the Hereafter. No change for sentences (the promises) Allâh. That is the great victory [Yunus/10: 62-64].

Finally, we will close this paper by praying to Allah Almighty that He continues to bestow His taufik us to get out of His goodness in the world and the Hereafter, verily He heareth and grant the prayer.

Ustadz Abu Olaya

When a person (or a group) is not grounded in the understanding that Sharai nash straight, not surprisingly, then will appear understanding, beliefs, behaviors, forms of worship that are not in accordance with law, even completely at odds with the law. God forbid terminal khudzlân

Call it a pretty dominating Sufi groups in society. This class is actually loaded with one-if I may say-obvious peculiarities collided with law brought the Messenger Muhammad sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam.

One view (belief) they are, there are some people who do not need to run the Shari'a of Allah Almighty upon him in this life. Nearness to Allah, the one who makes the laws taklif fall from their shoulders. Obligation of the five daily prayers, zakat and other obligations contained in all the commands of Allah Almighty fall upon it for the sake of his stature in the Almighty Allah. Even this is not enough, they also looked at the figures 'special' this may do unlawful acts, such as adultery, drinking khomr and other acts that Essence is forbidden in Islamic law.

Ibn Hazm rahimahullah explains the strangeness of the Sufi faith. T He said, "The Sufi sect claims that trustees Allah Almighty is more important than all the prophets and apostles (?!). They said, "Whoever has reached the highest degree of sainthood, the entire (dependents) Shari'a fall on him like a prayer (five times), fasting (Ramadan), (pay) Zakat and others. Unlawful matters such as adultery, drinking and other khamer be lawful for him. Consequently, this also justifies their wives screwed. "[1]

Here's aqeedah is often used by some people to defend their figure tokohkan when doing things that seem clear violation of law. They said, "He is Allah wali khan, has reached ma'rifat". Or cheering someone with an extra for one reason, because have achieved degrees ma'rifah though outwardly not seem himself committed to the direction of the Prophet sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam.

THIS LAW Convictions
It is strange, a person can be free from the responsibility and freedom of worship under the pretext of violating divine law has achieved a high degree on the side of his Lord. Based on sound logic course, in view of the above conclusions can be made legal in Islam. Confidence in the history deniers indirectly mentioning the Prophet sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam and his Companions, the protagonists are clearly much better than they are, remain worshiping Allah Almighty sampa the end of life. How could a servant of Allah Almighty in this world will reach a phase where he is free to escape from the rule of law?! Therefore, do not be surprised if this confidence in the verdict of kufr, dhalâl (misguided) and jahl (real stupidity). [2]

Imam Ibn al-Qayyim rahimahullah vote with the verdict of kufr and ilhâd (stray) from Islam. After quoting the words of one of them who said, "Proximity haqiqi move a servant of the condition as well as the inner realms Zahir to rest the body and limbs from fatigue due to charity (worship)," t he next said, "kufr and their deviation is very large. Therefore, it has to get rid of 'ubudiyah (of humans) and believes that they do not need to worship because they feel have been satisfied with delusions of vanity that comes from wishful thinking and cunning of Satan. "[3]

Human beings as a servant of Allah Almighty, obliged to devote himself to al-Khaliq in various ways that have been determined by him. The world as a field will hereafter also reinforce this, that human servitude to Allah Almighty Lord of the Alamin not be stopped except when breathing has stopped. On the obligation is still worshiped for life in bladder body, Allah Almighty says:

واعبد ربك حتى يأتيك اليقين

And worship your Lord until comes to you who believed (dying) [al-Hijr/15: 99]

This is the verse that was misunderstood by them. They interpret al-Yaqin with ma'rifah. This obviously does not rely on any justified in interpreting the verse. Based on this verse, to worship such as prayer and other fixed obligatory upon every man for common sense (still there). Praying specifically about liability, then the prayer is performed in accordance with the conditions of affordable. As mentioned in the hadeeth of 'Imraan ibn Hushain z, the Prophet sallallaahu' alaihi wa sallam said:

صل قائما فإن لم تستطع فقاعدا فإن لم تستطع فعلى جنب

Work with a prayer stand, if you can not, (do) to sit. If not able to (do) with lying [HR. al-Bukhari no. 1117] [4]

Imam Ibn Kathir rahimahullah said, "This verse became the mulhid error argument (kufr actors) who argues that the definition of al-Yaqin (in al-Hijr 15/99) is ma'rifah. (So ​​according to their version) anyone who has reached the degree ma'rifah, then dependents (taklif) his fall. It is a form of kufr, misguidance and ignorance. The prophets' alaihimus greetings and their friends are the people most familiar with Almighty Allah, most know the rights and properties of His and all forms of exaltation are the rights of Allah Almighty, however they are man- The highest human servitude himself to Allah Almighty and most worship and good deeds until death comes. What is meant by al-Yaqin here is death, as we have said before ". [5]

Imam Ibn al-Qayyim rahimahullah said, "Behold, the closer a servant to Allah Almighty, then jihad (sincerity in worship) will be greater" Allah Almighty says:

وجاهدوا في الله حق جهاده

And strive with you on the path of jihad Allah in truth. [Al-Hajj/22: 78]

Then he made a portrait of life t Prophet sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam and his Companions as proof. T He said, "Examine the condition of the Prophet sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam and his Companions. When they were growing up the degree of closeness to Allah Almighty (is high), then their sincerity in worshiping the higher ".

Interpret the verse is not an easy job, requiring a lot of devices that must be mastered for someone to be able to interpret the verses of Allah Almighty and Exalted, including known hadith the Prophet sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam has informed that the actual al-Yaqin meaningful death, not ma'rifah. Allah knows best

Ustadz Abu Ihsan al-Atsari

Indeed, Almighty Allah created man for a noble purpose, which is to worship Allah alone without associating him with something else. Allah Almighty says:

وما خلقت الجن والإنس إلا ليعبدون

And I have not created jinn and man to worship Me. [Adz-Dzâriyât/51: 56]

In this verse, Allah n requires two things of us. First, pray to Allah Almighty in a way that suits his Shari'a. Second, do not give up the worship to other than Him.

That is, a believer should be a servant of Allah Almighty during his life. Status as a servant of Allah Almighty is not to be separated from him even for a moment. That's the purpose we were created. That status and highest degree achieved by a human being, which is a servant of Allah Almighty true. Allah Almighty has pinned this title to his servants the most noble, Muhammad sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam, Allah Almighty says:

سبحان الذي أسرى بعبده ليلا من المسجد الحرام إلى المسجد الأقصى الذي باركنا حوله

Most holy Allah, who has memperjalankan his servant on a night from al-Masjid al-Haram to al-Aqsa Mosque which We have blessed around him to show him some of Our signs (greatness) us. Verily, He is All-hearing, All-knowing. [Al-Isra '/ 17:1]

Age that Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala has given us this is a gift and not a priceless gift. One day Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala give us 24 hours. That's the time we should use her best to be a true servant of Allah.

Hence the Prophet sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam delivered a very great testament to us, he sallallaahu' alaihi wa sallam said:

اغتنم خمسا قبل خمس: شبابك قبل هرمك, و صحتك قبل سقمك, وغناك قبل فقرك, و فراغك قبل شغلك, و حياتك قبل موتك

Redeeming the five before coming the five (ie) your youth before old age comes; period before coming past your common illness; period before coming future kayamu poor; your spare time before coming busy periods; thy days before the coming of death. [1]

Is a collection of real life day-to-day. It would hurt us, if continued lulled delusion that they forgot to improve. Properly, we move from one form of worship to other forms of worship. Allah Almighty says:

فإذا فرغت فانصب) 7 (وإلى ربك فارغب

Then when you have finished (from something affairs), do solemnly (affair) to another, and only the Rabbmulah should you expect [al-Insyirah/94 :7-8]

When explaining this verse, Shaykh Ibn Uthaymeen rahimahullah said, "When you have completed a task so be prepared to work on other tasks, do not waste the opportunity. Therefore, a reasonable person is living a passionate life. Each time you finish working on a task, he prepared to work on other tasks. Because the time will go by, we both awake and asleep, busy or vacant. Time goes by, no one is able to hold him. If only all men come together to hold the sun in order to lengthen the time of day they would not be able to do it. No one can withstand time. Therefore, make your life full of the spirit of life. If you are finished working on a job, continue with other work. If you are finished working on the affairs of the world, you shall continue to carry out the affairs of the Hereafter. Conversely, if you have finished with the affairs of the Hereafter proceed with the affairs of the world. When you have finished Friday prayers, bertebarlah on earth and look for the gift of Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala. Friday prayers flanked by two world affairs. Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala says:

يا أيها الذين آمنوا إذا نودي للصلاة من يوم الجمعة فاسعوا إلى ذكر الله وذروا البيع ذلكم خير لكم إن كنتم تعلمون) 9 (فإذا قضيت الصلاة فانتشروا في الأرض وابتغوا من فضل الله واذكروا الله كثيرا لعلكم تفلحون

O believers, if you are called upon to perform the Friday prayer, (but you are busy taking care of the state of affairs in the world) then your haste to remember Allah and leave your trading. That is better for you if ye only knew. If prayer has been fulfilled, then bertebaranlah you in the land and seek the bounty of Allah and remember Allah as much as possible so that you are lucky. [Al-Jumu'ah / 62:9-10]

If anyone says, 'If I am constantly serious and earnest all the time, I was definitely tired and bored.' Answer is your rest to refresh yourself and restore morale including work and practice. Means work and practice it should not move. your rest time to restore morale, including work and practice. most important thing is make your whole life in diligence and charity. Word of Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala:

وإلى ربك فارغب

and just to Rabbmulah should you expect [al-Insyirah/94: 8]

That is, if you complete tasks then followed with another job then hopefully to Allah so that you get a reward. Stay tuned to ask help from Allah, before and after the deed. Before the charity ask for help to Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala. And after doing a good deed, hopefully reward from Allah Almighty. [2]

Liver disease physician, Ibn al-Qayyim rahimahullah said, "Utilizing time heavier than fix the past and the future. Utilizing time means doing deeds most important, most useful for themselves and bring the most happiness. In this case the man is divided into several levels . sake of Allah, that's your chance to collect supplies to meet hereafter, to heaven or to hell .... "[3]

Time goes by, the age we continue to grow. The question is whether we have the time to fill it as well as possible. Day after day passed, and that's going to live, whether it be utilized best as diwasiatkan by our Prophet sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam?

Indeed losers, people who do not fill out the following to be a true servant of Allah. People like this like walking undead, die prematurely. His life is not meaningful at all!

Ibn al-Qayyim rahimahullah said, "It is the right of Allah upon His servants in every passing moment of his life to fulfill the obligation ubudiyah which he offered to Allah and to bring her to him. If a servant to fill his time with the obligatory worship he did, then he will advance towards Allah. Conversely, if he is content with following passions, relaxing fun or unemployed, he will retreat. A slave that is not moving forward, he would move backwards. Nobody stops halfway. Allah Subhanahu wa Ta ' ala says:

لمن شاء منكم أن يتقدم أو يتأخر

(That is) for those of you who are willing to go forward or backward [al-Mudattsir/74: 37] [4]

Rahimahullah He continued, "If it does not go forward, he would resign. Servant is always running, do not stop. Otherwise it up, definitely down: If it does not go forward, backward ..... That's definitely the moments of life that passed quickly to heaven or hell! There are driving fast and some are slow-moving. Someone go ahead and some are backwards. Nobody is stopping in the middle of the road! Only in this way there are different goals and some direction different acceleration speed! "[5]

The Prophet sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam said:

كل الناس يغدو فبايع نفسه فمعتقها أو موبقها

Every day everyone went on his journey, risking her out! There are freeing themselves and some are mencelakakanya! [6]

In another hadith mentioned:

يا كعب بن عجرة الناس غاديان

O Ka'b bin 'Ujrah, everyone is continuing her journey ..... "[7]

Every man went on his way, no one sells himself to Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala:

إن الله اشترى من المؤمنين أنفسهم وأموالهم بأن لهم الجنة

Surely Allah has bought of the believers, themselves and their property by giving Jannah for them [at-Tawbah / 9:111]

And some are sold to the devil is always lurking. [8]
Ibn al-Qayyim rahimahullah said, "Whoever does not charge for his time with the guidance of Allah and Allah then her death is better than life? If a servant is working on the prayer, then he only received part of the prayer which he did with solemn. He did not get any part of his life unless she lived with the instructions of Allah and projecting solely to Allah. "[9]

Then, could we fill 24 hours Allah give this to worship Allah Almighty? The answer, we are able to fill it with worship. It was when we interpret the broad sense of worship. Everything that is loved and blessed by Allah Almighty in the form of word and deed, and spiritually.

Verily Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala has opened the doors of goodness. Prophet sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam has explained to us the good deeds that can draw us closer to Him. Did not the Prophet sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam said,

إنه ليس شيء يقربكم إلى الجنة إلا قد أمرتكم به و ليس شيء يقربكم إلى النار إلا قد نهيتكم عنه

None of the charities that can bring you to heaven but I have commanded you. And none charities that can bring you to hell but I have banned you from him. "[10]

Prophet sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam has explained the Sunnah-sunnah that can be done by a Muslim day and night. Consider the narrative of Imam adh-Dhahabi rahimahullah following:
"If someone graduated from al-Qur'ân with Tartil within one week, and he routinely practice it would certainly be a major practice. Indeed this religion is easy. For the sake of Allah, reading the seventh al-Qur'ân with Tartil reading the tahajjud prayer accompanied with keeping other nawafil prayers, such as praying Duha and Tahiyyatul mosque, accompanied by dhikr-ma'tsur and authentic dhikr, prayers before bed and when wake him, prayer and dhikr after fard prayers, at the dawn of time, accompanied by a useful studying and busy myself with it outright, accompanied by enjoining unjust, provide guidance to the ignorant, to give warning to the wicked and the like. Accompanied by implementing obligatory prayers in congregation with humility and thuma'ninah, with submission and faith, and perform obligations, leaving the major sins, and seek forgiveness multiply prayer, alms reproduce, connecting straps silaturrahim, be humble 'and sincere in implementing it all, it is a very great flurry, and a maqam (position) of the Right Hand and saints of Allah as well as those who fear Allah. Really, all it is the case demanded. "[11]

If we apply the sunnah-Sunnah Prophet sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam as mentioned by Imam adh-Dhahabi above t necessarily half days we used to practice it, as he said, it was a great flurry who spend most of our time. And the only course left little opportunity for unemployed without good deeds.

However, humans often overwritten two diseases that prevent him from all that. That is lazy and taswif disease (procrastinating charity). Hence the Prophet sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam always the refuge of the lazy nature. One of the prayer he sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam:

اللهم إني أعوذ بك من الكسل وسوء الكبر اللهم إني أعوذ بك من عذاب في النار وعذاب في القبر

Ya Allah, I seek refuge in You from laziness and ugliness in the old days. Ya Allah, I seek refuge in You from the punishment of hell and torment of the grave. [12]

DAY NIGHT practice
Some form of charity that we can do a day and night include:

1. Obligatory prayers five times a day. This is the second pillar of Islam and must be performed by every Muslim who baligh and sensible. This obligation does not fall under any circumstances, except for women who are menstruating and postpartum.

Obligatory prayer is done by standing, if it can not stand, it is done while sitting, if you can not sit done while lying down, if not well then the cue.

2. Rawatib voluntary prayers that accompany the obligatory prayers.
Abdullah bin Umar radi Syaqîq recalled, "I asked 'Aisha radi anhuma about voluntary prayers performed by Prophet sallallaahu' alaihi wa sallam. Aisha radi anhuma replied, 'He prayed four rak'ahs in his house before Zhuhur prayer, then he sallallaahu' alaihi wa sallam out prayers in congregation, then he sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam go home and pray four rak'ahs. He sallallaahu' alaihi wa sallam Maghrib prayer in congregation then he went home and prayed two rak'ahs. then his evening prayers in congregation ago go to my house and pray two rak'ahs. pray he raka'at nine nights including Witr prayer. Her prayers all night long to stand and sometimes he do while sitting. When he read the letter then he stood bowing and prostration well standing. Yet when he read the letter while sitting then his bowing and prostration well while sitting. When dawn was breaking then he prayed two rak'ah (voluntary dawn prayer). "[13]

3. Duha prayer, including prayer Awwabiin is conducted at the end of the prayer time Duha and Ishraq prayer is performed at the beginning of time Duha, ie once the sun comes up.

Abu Dhar al-Ghifari anhu narrates from the Messenger of Allaah sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam, he said:

يصبح على كل سلامى من أحدكم صدقة فكل تسبيحة صدقة وكل تحميدة صدقة وكل تهليلة صدقة وكل تكبيرة صدقة وأمر بالمعروف صدقة ونهي عن المنكر صدقة ويجزئ من ذلك ركعتان يركعهما من الضحى

On every morning, every body joints Bani Adam must give charity. Each rosary
could be a charity. Each tahmid could be charity. Each tahlil could be charity. Every takbir can be alms. Each enjoining evil could also be a charity. All that can be replaced with two cycles were performed at the time of Duha. [14]

4. Evening prayer. There are so many hadiths that explain about the virtues of night prayer, such as the hadeeth of Abu Malik al-Ash'ari radi 'anhu said, "The Prophet sallallaahu' alaihi wa sallam said:

إن في الجنة غرفة يرى ظاهرها من باطنها وباطنها من ظاهرها أعدها الله لمن أطعم الطعام وألان الكلام وتابع الصيام وصلى بالليل والناس نيام

Actually in heaven available rooms inside visible from the outside and the exterior look of the inside. Rooms that Allah provide for the people who like to feed, soften said talk, multiply fast, spread greetings and evening prayers at a time when humans fall asleep [15]

The evening prayer is done two cycles or two cycles, until dawn.

5. Voluntary prayer after purification.
Prophet sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam said:

من توضأ نحو وضوئي هذا ثم قام فركع ركعتين لا يحدث فيهما نفسه غفر له ما تقدم من ذنبه

Whoever wudoo 'wudhu'ku like this, then pray two rak'ah and did not speak in the liver (which is done with humility') and doing that surely Allah will forgive his sins. [16]
Abu Hurairah radi 'anhu narrated that the Prophet sallallaahu' alaihi wa sallam said to Bilal radi 'anhu after the dawn prayer, "O Bilal, tell me the deeds in Islam that you would expect. For verily I heard terompahmu in front of me in paradise. "Bilal said," It is not a practice that I practice the more I expect it every time I ablutions at night or during the day I always pray that I can do. "[17]

6. Voluntary prayer after Asr during two cycles of sunlight has not yellowed.
'Aisha radi anhuma said, "Two cycles are never abandoned by the Prophet sallallaahu' alaihi wa sallam either covertly or overtly: Two rak'ahs before the dawn prayer and two Rakat after the Asr prayer." [18]

7. Tauba prayer.
Ali ibn Abi Talib radi 'anhu said, "I heard the Prophet sallallaahu' alaihi wa sallam said:

ما من رجل يذنب ذنبا ثم يقوم فيتطهر ثم يصلي ثم يستغفر الله, إلا غفر الله له

It is not a servant sinning then he stood up, and do wudoo 'and pray, then beg forgiveness of Allah but Allah will forgive him. "[19]

8. Witr prayer before going to bed.
Abu Hurayrah radi 'anhu said, "My love has willed me three cases, I'm not going to leave until I die: fasting three days each month, praying Duha and Witr prayers before going to bed." [20]

9. Keeping wudu '.
Prophet sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam said:

لا يحافظ على الوضوء إلا مؤمن

No one is keeping wudu 'unless he's a believer [21]

10. Dhikr-dhikr after fard prayers.
11. Dhikr-remembrance absolute,
The point is-dhikr dhikr which may be read without being tied to a particular place and time. Example mentioned in the hadith of the Prophet sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam:

أكثروا من شهادة أن لا إله إلا الله, قبل أن يحال بينكم و بينها

Expand reading creed la ilaha illa before before you blocked it [22].

And the hadith:

لأن أقول سبحان الله والحمد لله ولا إله إلا الله والله أكبر أحب إلي مما طلعت عليه الشمس

I say Subhan Allah HAMDULILLÂH WA WAL la ilaha illa Allaah AKBAR, I liked more than the rising of the sun [23]

And many more other good deeds we can do day and night.

Merutinkan deeds-deeds will surely bring virtue. Among them, if we fall sick or hindered because of the deeds bersafar for example, it will still be written the reward charities that we routinely do it. As mentioned in a hadith.

إذا مرض العبد أو سافر كتب له مثل ما كان يعمل مقيما صحيحا

When a slave falls ill or middle bersafar, surely Allah Almighty reward still write to him as he always did when healthy and habitation (not bersafar) [24]

In addition, if we truly intend to practice it but hindered by something that can not be avoided, then this intention will still generate reward. For example, someone who truly intend to wake the night to pray Tahajjud, he was defeated by his past, he still counted reward for him. 'Aisha radi anhuma narrated that the Prophet sallallaahu' alaihi wa sallam said:

ما من امرئ تكون له صلاة بليل فغلبه عليها نوم إلا كتب الله له أجر صلاته وكان نومه صدقة عليه

It is not someone who has intended prayers last night defeated by her (asleep) but Allah will write for him the reward was his night prayer and a charity it [25].

Abu Darda 'radi' anhu said, the Prophet sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam said:

من أتى فراشه وهو ينوي أن يقوم يصلي من الليل فغلبته عيناه حتى أصبح كتب له ما نوى وكان نومه صدقة عليه من ربه عز وجل

Whoever came up his bed with the intention to pray the night evening but he was defeated by both eyes (asleep) until dawn then written to him what he had to intend and his alms to him from his Lord Almighty [26]

Therefore, sleep and rest can also be worth a believer worship and rewarding, if rested with the intention to be more passionate in worship.

Mu'adh bin Jabal radi 'anhu and Abu Musa al-Ash'ari radi' anhu bermudzakarah about righteous deeds.

Mu'adh radi 'anhu said, "O Abdullah, how do you read the Koran?"
Abu Musa radi 'anhu said, "I regularly read it every time." [27]

Abu Musa asked, "Then how do you read it O Mu'adh?"
Mu'adh replied, "I read it in the early evening and then I woke up after I'd finished my time to sleep part. I read what Allah make it easy for me. I expect my reward from the reward of what I expect when I'm awake. "

In another narration that Umar radi Mu'adh asked Abu Musa radi 'anhu, "How do you read al-Qur'ân?"

Abu Musa replied: "I read it at a time when standing and sitting, and on top of my vehicle, I regularly read it every time."

Mu'adh replied: "As for me, I wake up and I slept well. I expect my reward from the reward of what I expect when I'm awake. "[28]

al-Hafiz Ibn Hajar t said, "It means he begged reward at the leisure moments as he begged reward tired at times charity. Because free time when used to help increase arousal worship will also produce reward. "[29]

Similarly, other worldly deeds, such as eating and drinking, can be worth the reward of worship and if intended to help increase arousal worship.

In essence, the opportunity to be a servant of Allah is actually open 24 hours for every Muslim who can take advantage of the best possible time, wallahu sowab bish knows best.

Ustadz Abdullah bin al-Buthoni Taslim, M.A

Name of Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala is the Most Beautiful mentioned by the Prophet sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam in the two Saheeh hadith:

1. Of Salman al-Farisi anhu that the Messenger of Allaah sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam said:

إن ربكم تبارك وتعالى حيى كريم يستحيى من عبده إذا رفع يديه إليه أن يردهما صفرا

Verily your Lord (Allah), Most Venerable Maha Shy, She's ashamed of his servant (who pray) raised his hands to Him then He resisted the vacuum [1].

2. Of Ya'la bin Umayya anhu that the Messenger of Allaah sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam saw a man bathing in the open field without cover fabric, so the Prophet sallallaahu' alaihi wa sallam up into the pulpit, praised Allah and praised Him, then he sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam said:

إن الله عز وجل حيى ستير يحب الحياء والستر, فإذا اغتسل أحدكم فليستتر

Verily Allah 'Azza wa Jalla Maha Maha Covering Shy again, He loves (adj) embarrassed and shut (disgrace / genitalia). So if one of you shower, let her cover (nakedness) [2].

Based on the above hadith, the scholars set the name of al-Hayiyyu (the Most Shy) as one of the names of Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala the Most Beautiful. Among them is the Imam Ibn al-Qayyim rahimahullah [3], Shaykh 'Abdurrahman as-Sa'di rahimahullah [4], Shaykh Muhammad bin Salih al-' Uthaymeen rahimahullah [5], Shaykh 'Abdur Razzaq al-Badr Hafizhahullah [6] and others.

Ibn Faris says rahimahullah explained that the origin of this name indicates two meanings, one of which is the opposite of the nature of al-waqâhah (bold face / shameless) [7].

Fairuz al-Abadi rahimahullah explained in the meaning of this name is the origin of the word al-hishma (courtesy high) [8].

Raghib al-Ashfahâni rahimahullah explains that this is the meaning of the name of Allah (the One) who leaves all evils and do everyone a favor [9].

Imam Ibn al-Qayyim rahimahullah said in qashîdah (poem) an-Nûniyyah his famous works:

He is al-Hayiyyu (Maha Shy) then he would not embarrass his servant
(In the world) when his servant blatant sinner

Shaykh Muhammad Khalil Harras rahimahullah when explaining the meaning of the poem stanza by saying: "(Nature) Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala shame is in accordance with nature (the greatness and majesty) of His, not equal to (nature) shame (at) creatures His meaningful change (attitudes) and (nature) discouraged happens to a person when he's worried about something disgrace or reproach (on him). bashfulness The meaning (in Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala) is left properties (deeds) are not aligned with the immensity of his mercy and goodness kemahasempurnaan and glory "[10].

More detailed, Shaykh 'Abdur Rahman as-Sa'di rahimahullah explains the meaning of this noble trait in his speech: "The nature of (shame Allâh Subhanahu wa Ta'ala) is of His mercy, His glory, and perfection as well (nature ) His trustees. A servant who commit adultery (to him) openly, but the servant desperately need (mercy) him, even he could not commit adultery except with the favors (which he loved) Allâh (to him ) so that he has the power to (perform) the immoral deeds, Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala the Most perfect property / ketidakbutuhan Him to all His creatures, for the glory / His mercy, He felt ashamed to open the disgrace and humiliate slave , and inflicting torture him (in the world). fact, He K cover (a disgrace) is His servant for various reasons that are permitted by Allah Almighty to him that covered her shame., and forgive and forgive (mistakes) the servant.

Allah Almighty always be kind to his servants the (delegate) a variety of delicious (to them), while they (actually) do poorly with adulterous him. His gift (down) to them (continuously) as the number of flickers human eye, while the evil (that) they (do) always go up (to Him).

(Allah) Almighty and gracious always up to him all the immoral and evil deeds of His servants, (but at the same time) He Subhanahu wa Ta'ala ashamed to torture a person who has gray in Islam, He is ashamed of His servant (who pray) raised his hands to Him then He blankly refused k, k and he called his servants to pray to him and promising to grant their prayers "[11].

The name of this great show that Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala has properties Haya '(shame) in accordance with kemahasempurnaan's wisdom and His, not the same as that of the shy nature of His creation, as the state of nature and the majesty of Allah Subhanahu perfection other wa Ta'ala. Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala says:

ليس كمثله شيء وهو السميع البصير

There is nothing similar to Him, and He is the All-Hearing, All-Seeing [asy-Syûra/42: 11]

In another verse, Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala says:

فلا تضربوا لله الأمثال إن الله يعلم وأنتم لا تعلمون

So do not set-resemblance resemblance to Allah. Surely He knows, while you do not know [an-Nahl/16: 74]

Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala loves the names and His attributes, as well as the positive effect of the invisibility love the names and the attributes on His creatures are real, because it includes the consequences of the perfection of the names and attributes His.

Therefore, Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala commanded His servants to practice the content and consequences of the names and His attributes. Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala commanded them to have shyness, like doing good, loving, merciful and forgiving, so that the servant of his most beloved are the traits that have blessed him, while the servants of his most hated is the have properties that are not blessed him. In this case, some excluded certain properties owned by the inappropriate things, such as the nature and magnify himself feels great, because these properties are not appropriate to the circumstances of a servant who should always be humble and devote themselves before Him, so has the nature- The above properties mean persecute themselves [12].

Needs to be made here that the bashfulness that Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala in His servants love is commendable and noble nature that always leads to goodness, and not as it is understood in part layman, that reluctance to do good and leave the evil is bashfulness .

Their assumption is clearly erroneous and contrary to the words of the Prophet sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam:

إن مما أدرك الناس من كلام النبوة إذا لم تستحي فاصنع ما شئت

Indeed, including things that are known by humans from earliest prophetic utterance: if you do not feel ashamed of it did according to (evil) as you will [13]

Imam Nawawi rahimahullah said: "The scholars have explained that (nature) which is actually a shy temperament that always motivates (a servant) to leave the (deeds) that poor and prevent him from (adjective) lacking in (performing) the rights of those who have the right (to it) "[14].

Then, the positive effects and benefits of faith in the name of Allah, the almighty can we draw from the above explanation of the meaning of the hadith. Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala Maha Shy and He loves those who have bashfulness.

Therefore, the servant of Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala his most beloved, the Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam was the most shy. It is based on the noble Companions speech, Abu Sa'id al-Khudri radi 'anhu: "Messenger of Allah sallallaahu' alaihi wa sallam is a very shy person (exceed) the virgin girl pingitannya room, so if he sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam saw something no he sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam prefer, then we (could have) knows that the face he sallallaahu' alaihi wa sallam "[15].

In many authentic hadith which contained an explanation of kautamaan bashfulness, the suggestion to have it in a positive and motivating influence for good to a servant.

From Abu Hurairah radi anhu that the Prophet sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam said: "Faith is (composed of) over 70 branches, the highest is speech (testimony): Lâ ilâha illallahu (none has the right diibadahi correctly except Allah), and the lowest is the way to get rid of the interference, and (nature) is a branch of shame dar faith "[16].

Of 'Imran bin Hushain radi' anhu that the Prophet sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam said: "(The nature of) shame it does not bring (something) other than kindness", in another narration: "(nature) is a shame that all the good" [17].

And bashfulness greatest and most obligatory thing to do is ashamed of Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala [18]. Prophet sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam said: "Shame you towards Allah with true shame". The Friends radi anhum said: O Messenger of Allah sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam, we've felt really embarrassed him, thank God. Prophet sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam said: "That's not (that), but feel embarrassed to Allah with a true shame is to keep the head and (limbs) available to him (from immoral deeds), keeping the stomach and (limbs) associated with it (from the unlawful case), and (always) remember the death and destruction of the body (in the grave), anyone who wants (reply kindness in) the Hereafter, he will leave the jewelry world. Anybody who does it all mean he has feel embarrassed to Allah with true shame "[19].

In addition, there are a few good deeds, including the consequences of bashfulness towards Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala, but the acts are not obligatory, such as covering the nakedness though at the time alone. It is based on the hadith of ibn Mu'awiya Haidah anhu that the Messenger of Allaah sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam asked: "O Messenger of Allah sallallaahu' alaihi wa sallam, if one of us were alone, (whether he may be naked)?" He sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam said: "Allah is more entitled to (a slave) to his shame than (the) people".

The action in the hadith scholars understand this as a suggestion (virtue) and not an obligation, because they reasoned that Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala actually nothing of His creation is hidden from Him, either when they are naked or when dressing [20 ].

Thus, we conclude this paper and by praying to Almighty Allah with His names are many colors and qualities of His almighty perfect, so pleased to bestow taufik and convenience to us to have the bashfulness of his loved ones as well as all good qualities and other precious. Verily, He is the Hearing, the grant the prayer. And Allaah knows best.

Ustadz Abu Ahmad Said Yai

أفمن شرح الله صدره للإسلام فهو على نور من ربه فويل للقاسية قلوبهم من ذكر الله أولئك في ضلال مبين

So if the people who opened their hearts by Allah to (accept) Islam, so he gets a light from his Lord (together with those whose hearts are hard)? Then woe to those whose hearts are hard to remember Allâh. They were in clear error [az-Zumar/39: 22]

SUMMARY Interpretation [1]
"So if the people who opened their hearts by Allah to (accept) Islam", ie easy to get to know Him, to His tawheed, obedience to His commandments and to increase the spirit of Islamic teachings to work. And this is a good sign for someone.

"Then he got a light from his Lord", which is the light of truth that makes her grow confident. Are they the same as those whose hearts are hard? Certainly not the same.

"Then woe to those whose hearts are hard to remember Allah", ie those whose hearts are not soft when reminded of Allah, no humility, no understanding, no conscious and always rebellious.

"They were in clear error" that would lead them to destruction.

Every human has a different nature. These properties can change at any time. Similarly, the heart, he also has properties. Liver can be healthy and can also be a pain. Allah Almighty says:

في قلوبهم مرض فزادهم الله مرضا

In their hearts is a disease, then added Allâh illness .... [Al-Baqarah / 2:10]

The heart can also be soft and can also be hard as a rock. Allah Almighty says:

ثم قست قلوبكم من بعد ذلك فهي كالحجارة أو أشد قسوة

Then after that your hearts become hard as rocks, or even harder [al-Baqarah / 2:74]

Similarly, the liver can be glossy, shiny and can also be a dark black as explained in a Hadeeth of the Prophet sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam. Therefore, a Muslim as much as possible of the condition of his heart at all times, not to be a hard heart or begins to harden so it will become harder and harder to accept the truth. Na'ûdzu billahi forbid.

The above verse clearly explains that those whose hearts are hard and in a very despicable manifest error. Malik bin Dinar rahimahullah once said, "A servant is not punished with a penalty greater than that made his heart hard.'s Not Allah Almighty angry with a people unless he would revoke his affection from them. [2]

Hard heart began to harden or have the following signs:

1. Lazing in doing goodness and obedience, as well as disparaging a disobedience.

2. Not affected his heart with the verses of al-Qur'ân is recited. In contrast to the Mu'mineen, their hearts would tremble if recited the verses of al-Qur'ân or be reminded of Almighty Allah. Almighty Allah says, which means:

إنما المؤمنون الذين إذا ذكر الله وجلت قلوبهم وإذا تليت عليهم آياته زادتهم إيمانا وعلى ربهم يتوكلون

Indeed, those who believe that when they are called names Allah their hearts be troubled, and if recited his verses increaseth their faith (hence), and only the Lord-was their sole trust. [Al-Anfal / 8:2]

3. Not affected his heart with the trials, calamities and trials are given by Allah Almighty. Allah says which means:

أولا يرون أنهم يفتنون في كل عام مرة أو مرتين ثم لا يتوبون ولا هم يذكرون

And why do not they (the hypocrites) notice that they are tested once or twice every year, and they are not (too) repent and not (also) take lessons? [At-Tawbah / 9:126]

4. Do not be afraid of the promise and threat of Almighty Allah

5. Increasing love for the world and put Him in the Hereafter

6. Not calm his heart and always feel depressed

7. Increasing and increasing immorality does. Allah Almighty says:

فلما زاغوا أزاغ الله قلوبهم والله لا يهدي القوم الفاسقين

So when they turned away (from the truth), Allah turned their hearts. And Allah does not guide the wicked people [ash-Shaf/61: 5]

8. Do not know or do not distinguish ma'ruf and evil deeds.

Hearts become hard of course there is the cause. The causes of liver rigors of them are as follows:

1. Shirk, kufr and hypocrisy.
This is because most of the liver that can cover a person from accepting the truth. Almighty Allah says, which means:

سنلقي في قلوب الذين كفروا الرعب بما أشركوا بالله ما لم ينزل به سلطانا ومأواهم النار وبئس مثوى الظالمين

We will enter into the hearts of the unbelievers fear, because they have been associating Allah with something that Allah himself did not lose information about it. Back their place is hell. And that's the worst of living where people are wrongdoers [Ali 'Imran / 3:151]

2. The agreement violated Made To Allah Almighty
Allah Almighty says:

فبما نقضهم ميثاقهم لعناهم وجعلنا قلوبهم قاسية

(But) because of their breach of their covenant, then we curse them, and made their hearts grow hard. [Al-Ma-waiting time / 5:13]

When interpreting this verse, Shaykh Abu Bakr al-Jazairi, "break it (the agreement) with (car) is not consistent with what is in it in the form of commands and prohibitions." [3]

3. Excessive laughing
The Prophet Sallallahu 'alaihi wa sallam said:

لا تكثروا الضحك, فإن كثرة الضحك تميت القلب

Do you laugh a lot! Indeed many laughs can turn off the liver [4]

4. Many Talking And Much Eating
Bishr ibn al-Harith said, "(There are) two things that can harden the heart: a lot of talk and a lot of eating." [5]

5. Doing a lot of Sin
The Prophet Sallallahu 'alaihi wa sallam said:

إن المؤمن إذا أذنب كانت نكتة سوداء في قلبه, فإن تاب ونزع واستغفر, صقل قلبه, فإن زاد, زادت, فذلك الران الذي ذكره الله في كتابه: [[كلا بل ران على قلوبهم ما كانوا يكسبون]]

Indeed if a believer sins, there will be a black spot in his heart. If she repented and stopped (from the sin) and ask for forgiveness, then his heart will be shiny. If he continues to sin, then so does the black dot. It is ar-Ran (covering) which is mentioned by Allah in His Book: 'Absolutely not (so), actually what they always try to cover up their hearts that [al-Muthaffifîn/83: 14]

6. Negligent Of Obedience
Almighty Allah says, which means:

ولقد ذرأنا لجهنم كثيرا من الجن والإنس لهم قلوب لا يفقهون بها ولهم أعين لا يبصرون بها ولهم آذان لا يسمعون بها أولئك كالأنعام بل هم أضل أولئك هم الغافلون

And verily We shall give to (the contents of Hell) most of the jinn and mankind. They are heartless, but failed to use to understand (the verses of Allah), they have eyes (but) failed to use to see (the signs of Allah) and they have the ear (but) not spent on the hearing (the verses of Allah) . They are like cattle, nay even more astray. Those are the people they are negligent [al-A'raf / 7:179]

7. Singing and Musical Instruments
'Abdullah bin Mas'ud radi' anhu said:

الغناء ينبت النفاق فى القلب

Song-Laguan hypocrisy grow in the heart [6]

8. The Seductive Female voice
Allah Almighty says:

إن اتقيتن فلا تخضعن بالقول فيطمع الذي في قلبه مرض وقلن قولا معروفا

So do not be subject to (smooth sound) in speaking so berkeinginanlah person's illness in his heart and say a kind word [al-Ahzâb/33: 32]

9. Doing Things That Ruin Hearts
The things that damage the liver very much. However, of all that there are five things that factor damaging the liver. The fifth case as stated by Ibn al-Qayyim rahimahullah: "The five things that damage the liver are more sociable (gathered by humans), (a lot) dreaming, dependent upon besides Allah, Almighty and Exalted, satiety (eating a lot), and (much ) sleep. These are the five main things that can damage the liver "[7]

Also have a hard heart medication so he could go back to soften. Here are some things that can soften the hearts:

1. Faith in Allah Almighty and always increasing faith.
Allah Almighty says:

ومن يؤمن بالله يهد قلبه

Whoever believes in Allah, surely he would give instructions to his heart [at-Taghâbun/64: 11]

2. Many remember Allah (dhikr air) and read al-Qur'ân with his tadabburi download (understand and contemplate its meaning).

Allah Almighty says:

الذين آمنوا وتطمئن قلوبهم بذكر الله ألا بذكر الله تطمئن القلوب

(Namely) those who believe and whose hearts find satisfaction in the remembrance of Allah. Remember! Only in the remembrance of Allah do hearts find satisfaction [ar-Ra'd / 13: 28]

3. Studied Sharai (theology)
No doubt, that Sharai science can guide a person to be a servant of Allah Almighty who fear Allah. At the beginning of the letter Ali 'Imran, Allah Almighty praised those who have deep knowledge. Did the reader, whether the prayer they say? Prayer offered by them are:

ربنا لا تزغ قلوبنا بعد إذ هديتنا وهب لنا من لدنك رحمة إنك أنت الوهاب

Our Lord, do not make us cautious perversity after you give instructions to us, and grant us mercy from Thee, because Thou art the Grantor (gift) [Ali 'Imran / 3:8]

They are more aware of his Lord when compared to ordinary people, and they also know that the human heart can change, so they prayed the prayer.

4. Seek refuge in Allah from the heart that is not humility 'with a prayer that has been taught by the Prophet Sallallahu' alaihi wa sallam, which reads:

اللهم إنى أعوذ بك من علم لا ينفع ومن قلب لا يخشع ومن نفس لا تشبع ومن دعوة لا يستجاب لها

Ya Allah! I seek refuge with You from knowledge which is beneficial, from a heart that is not humility, full of soul and of prayer was not granted [8]

5. Be kind to orphans and the poor
It was narrated from Abu Hurayrah radi anhu that someone complained to the Prophet Sallallahu 'alaihi wa sallam about her that hard. He Sallallahu 'alaihi wa sallam also said:

إن أردت أن يلين قلبك, فأطعم المسكين, وامسح رأس اليتيم

If you want your heart to be soft, then give feed the poor and orphans wipe head [9]

6. Many remember death
Narrated from Allaah Shafiyah anhuma that a woman came to 'Aisha radi anhuma and loudly complained that his heart condition. Then 'Aisha said, "Expand remember the dead, you will get what you want." Then she was doing it. After that, he was getting instructions in his heart and give thanks to 'Aisha radhiallahu' anha. [10]

Sa'id bin Jubair [11] and Rabi 'bin Abi Rashid [12] rahimahumallâh once said:

لو فارق ذكر الموت قلبي ساعة خشيت أن يفسد قلبي

If given the separate deaths of my heart a moment, I was afraid my heart will be broken

7. Many grave pilgrimages
Abu Talib, a disciple of Imam Ahmad, once said, "A man once asked Abu 'Abdillah (Imam Ahmad) about how to soften his heart. He replied, 'Go into the cemetery and wipe orphans head.'. "[13]

8. Attending the mosque committees and council advice
Attend majlis-majlis like this very influential on the human heart. Let us consider what is said by al-'Irbâdh bin sariyah radi' anhu, "One day the Prophet sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam pray, then facing us and give advice that is very touching, which makes eyes cry and be careful be afraid. "[14]

9. Away from the causes of fitnah and sin
That our hearts do not become hard, then we do everything possible to avoid the causes of sin and slander. Therefore, Allah Almighty forbade the Companions asked or ask something to the wives of the Prophet Sallallahu 'alaihi wa sallam except from behind the veil.

Allah Almighty says:

وإذا سألتموهن متاعا فاسألوهن من وراء حجاب ذلكم أطهر لقلوبكم وقلوبهن

And when you ask for something (needs) to them (the wives of the Prophet), then ask them from behind a veil. Such a way that it is purer for your hearts and their hearts [al-Ahzâb/33: 53]

10. Eating foods that are halal
Imam Ahmad rahimahullah was asked by someone, "With what could be a soft heart?" Then he replied, "Yes Bunayya (O my son)! With the eat, shop and eat kosher. "[15]

11. Evening prayer

12. Worship and draw closer to Allah at the time of sahur (pre-dawn)

13. Make friends with people who are pious,
Ibrahim al-Khawwâsh rahimahullah once said:

دواء القلب خمسة أشياء: قراءة القرآن بالتدبر, وخلاء البطن, وقيام الليل, والتضرع عند السحر, ومجالسة الصالحين

There are five types of heart drugs, namely: read al-Qur'ân with his tadabburi download, empty stomach, prayer nights, get closer (to Allah) at meal time and sitting around (friends) with people who are pious [ 16]

Ustadz DR. Arifin Badri MA

Praise be to Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala, and prayers and peace may always be delegated to the Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam, his family and his companions.

Allah Almighty has outlined that human life not only once, but twice. Transitory life of this world as the beginning of life and will be followed by the eternal afterlife. Your success is not necessarily sustainable in the world to the Hereafter. But on the contrary, success in the Hereafter makes you forget the failures during the life of the world, however it weighs. Especially if you live in the world apparently successful and heaven hereafter be yours.

The world is a common market, where people earn success in the world. And of course there are also markets the afterlife, where sowing the seeds of merit. It is not feasible to achieve success in the busyness of the world, your neglect of the Hereafter. Terlalai of the Hereafter because the world is busy piling means miserable forever. The Prophet sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam said.

تعس عبد الدينار وعبد الدرهم وعبد الخميصة إن أعطي رضي وإن لم يعط سخط تعس وانتكس وإذا شيك فلا انتقش

Hopefully woes befall the cult of the dinar, dirham and silk shirt (assets), given he was happy, and if not given, it becomes hate. May he be miserable and suffer continuously. And if he is pierced by a thorn, hopefully nothing is willing to pull out the thorn from her. [HR. Bukhari]

Conversely, neglect of the world because it is busy building a successful afterlife mean in the world hereafter.

ومن يتق الله يجعل له مخرجا) 2 (ويرزقه من حيث لا يحتسب ومن يتوكل على الله فهو حسبه إن الله بالغ أمره قد جعل الله لكل شيء

... And those who fear of Allah, He will give him a way out and gave him no rizqi of direction unexpectedly. And whoever sole trust to Allah, surely Allah will replace the old. Verily Allah (power to) carry out his affair dikehendakai. Verily Allah has appointed a measure for each of affairs. "[At Thalâq/65 :2-3]

Then it's up to you, want to be successful afterlife or miserable forever, though living in the barn property. Friend Ali radi 'anhu said:

ارتحلت الدنيا مدبرة, وارتحلت الآخرة مقبلة, ولكل واحدة منهما بنون, فكونوا من أبناء الآخرة, ولا تكونوا من أبناء الدنيا, فإن اليوم عمل ولا حساب, وغدا حساب ولا عمل

Life of the world rushed away, are approaching the afterlife, and each has its followers, then so be followers of the afterlife, and thou shalt not be a follower of the world. Because this is true now time to charity without any reckoning, while tomorrow (in the Hereafter) is the time of reckoning and not charity. [Ibn Abi Mushannaf Syaibah 8/155]

A reasonable when in a commerce there are lucky and some are losers. But the advantage is every human ideals, including you. Is not that so my brother? Therefore, would I show you tips profit and never pregnant? Success in the world with a mountain of profit and the next you're gone endless profits?
Do you know whether it's tips? Behold, the issue is to keep your heart so sincerely for Allah is always on whatever you do, whether you are religious or charitable habits. With good intentions, especially heartfelt because Allâh, you are worth a charitable habits of worship, without prejudice to the least of your kabiasaan charity functions. So first the scholars' live their lives. Companions Mu'az bin Jabal radi 'anhu said:

أما أنا فأنام وأقوم وأرجو فى نومتى ما أرجو فى قومتى

As for me, I sleep well the night prayers, but in my sleep I was expecting (to achieve) what I expect (attainable) from my evening prayers. [Agreed alaih]

However, on the contrary, as neglectful of intentions, it can cause your deeds only worth mere habit and routine. Previously stated:

عبادات أهل الغفلة عادات, وعادات أهل اليقظة عبادات

The negligent acts of worship which is routine, but the routine of people are wary, worth worship (al-Sharh an-Nawawiyah Arba'in by Shaykh Muhammad Ibn Uthaymeen, p. 9)

Heavens, even though you slept soundly until snoring, but it does not preclude the reward flow sheets to your charity. Thus, you can enjoy the beauty of the world and the Hereafter reward continues to flow endlessly. Good is not it?

After finding out that the intention, can be worth your routine of worship, you might say, "If so, how easy path to heaven?" Saudarku true, but nevertheless, it was during the time you walk in the place and so it is still far from the gates of heaven. To prove it, let me ask, "How amalankah you do when you read my writing?"

Did you know, that's true when you're working on hundreds of practice and probably a thousand good deeds? You shocked amazement and even do not believe?

To show this, let me again ask, "Is this when you're committing adultery? Are you currently eat pork? Are you currently worship the image? Are you currently looking for flattery (riya 'and sum'ah)? Are This time you're eating usury? Are you currently taking khamer? And many more similar the question that is definitely the answer is, "no." However, this time you do not realize that you're doing all these good deeds as you read these or other activities. If so, you certainly do not get a reward from it, but you've done it.

Ibn Hajar al-Asqalani rahimahullah said, "That's right, leaves a practice without any intention of not getting the reward. You only get a reward when you consciously leave a thing. So that he who in his heart was not conceived altogether about a charity immoral, certainly not the same as those who remember, and he refrains from it out of fear of Allah Almighty. "[Fathul Bari 1/15]

Ibn Hajar's explanation illustrates how important it is to bring in good faith in any of your activities. Without the necessary time, energy or any stock, oceans reward is yours. All that you easily reach out armed only with good intentions in your heart.

Ibn al-Qayyim rahimahullah further explained, "It is the purpose and belief in every deed be taken into account, and speech, as well diperthitungkan on good deeds and acts of worship. Objectives, intentions and beliefs can make the practice of halal or haram, right or wrong, or immoral obedience. As the intention of making it convicted obligatory acts of worship or sunnah, haram or halal, and right or wrong. The arguments underlying this kaedah too many to mention here. "[I'lâmul Muwaqî'in, 3/118]

The following hadith is one of the arguments underlying explanation scholars' above:

إنما الأعمال بالنية وإنما لامرئ ما نوى فمن كانت هجرته إلى الله ورسوله فهجرته إلى الله ورسوله ومن كانت هجرته لدنيا يصيبها أو امرأة يتزوجها فهجرته إلى ما هاجر إليه

Surely every practice must be accompanied by intention. And every actor is just practice to get what he intended. So those who emigrated for Allah and obey His Messenger, then he gets a reward from Allah for it, and those who emigrated for worldly affairs, or women who want to marry, then only then will he get (do not get rewarded in the afterlife. [Agreed alaih]

To be able to make every activity you worth of worship, then you should first identify the various activities you and your intentions at every practice. The Ulama 'explaining that globally the practice is divided into two:

1. The practice Unauthorized When Without Intent.
Examples of this type of practice is different charities pure worship, such as prayer, fasting, pilgrimage, ablution and so forth. If you do this charity without the intention, surely your deeds rejected and not get the reward. Prophet sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam said:

لا صيام لمن لم يجمع الصيام قبل الفجر

No (no) fasting for those who are not made up his intention to fast before dawn. [HR. Abu Dawud, at-Tirmidhi and others]

2. The Legal practice Even Without Intent.
Various acts of worship which brings the benefit of the perpetrator or another person is a true example of this type of practice. For example, to help people distress, connect the relationship, charity, and the like. And among the examples of this practice is the practice in the form of leaving things that are prohibited in the Shari'ah. For example, purification unclean, return the booty, pay debts, and the like with him. When you practice this kind deed without intention, then practice your legal obligations alias abort, but you do not get a reward from him.

You might ask, what exactly is the difference between the accepted legal? Know my brother, that any practice that is accepted must be valid, but not necessarily a legitimate practice accepted Allah Almighty. Therefore, although religious people hypocrites legitimate in the world, but in the afterlife is not acceptable. People who came to pray as a legitimate shaman in the world, but do not get a reward in the hereafter, aka not accepted.

من أتى عرافا فسأله عن شىء لم تقبل له صلاة أربعين ليلة

Whoever came predictor, then she asked him something, then it will not be accepted one shalatpun him for forty days. [HR. Muslim]

Imam Nawawi rahimahullah explains, "The purpose of this hadith, prayer is not rewarded, though legitimate and can abort the offender obligations and need not be repeated." [Sharh Sahih Muslim by Imam an-Nawawi rahimahullah, 14/227]

The scholars' also explain that you are required to present two types of intent, at any time charity:

1. Intention to run alias practice practice practice with conscious
This kind of intent is a legal requirement practice. Intention with this category are usually discussed in the books of fiqh. When you swim in the pool, but you forget when you're junub, then even if your entire body was soaked as the bath junub, but still you have not gone impure. Because you forgot that intentions are legitimate requirement junub bath.

2. Intention to run practice because Almighty Allah (sincerely).
With the intention of this kind of practice you get the reward of your worship.
Imam Suyuti rahimahullah said: "Some scholars assert that the current is a more sincere intention limited. Sincerity is not possible without intention, but on the contrary intention can be realized even without sincerity. While the scholars' Jurist usually just talk about the extent of intentions, and the various laws which they mentioned only about him. As for sincerity, then it is only Allah who knows. "[Al-wan Asybâh Nazhâir, p. 20]

Ibn Taymiyyah rahimahullah said, "Verily the Ulama 'have agreed that a practice that may not practiced it as worship, is not valid unless the intention. Unlike the practice is sometimes done as an act of worship and on other occasions as a routine, such as to fulfill the mandate and pay receivables. [Majmu 'Fataawa, 18/259]

Intention is a condition of receipt of this type every practice. So that any charity may not be accepted and get a reward when done with sincere for Allah Almighty.

Practice which can have a value of worship because you do it with good intentions is a good practice routine. When you do charity routines with good intentions, then the practice is worth worship. But when you do it as merely routine alone, without the reward meant it to achieve, then you do not get a reward from him.

And that is worth the reward of worship is that you get out of the routine, without prejudice to the functions and benefits of your routine it. As an example; intercourse with his wife, is a way to vent your biological needs. But when you put your faith in order to keep yourself and your wife of adultery, the practice certainly rewarding for you, without reducing your satisfaction of the agency relationship. Prophet sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam said:

) وفى بضع أحدكم صدقة (. قالوا: يا رسول الله, أيأتى أحدنا شهوته ويكون له فيها أجر? قال: (أرأيتم لو وضعها فى حرام أكان عليه فيها وزر, فكذلك إذا وضعها فى الحلال كان له أجر).

"And to vent his fleshly lust you can get a reward". Spontaneous amazement they asked, "O Messenger of Allah, is it possible to vent their lust lust, we get a reward for that?" Behind the Messenger of Allah said, "What do you think when he took it out on unlawful acts, not he sinned? Vice versa when he took it in a lawful way, then of course he gets the reward. "[HR. Muslims]

Imam Nawawi rahimahullah said, "In this hadith there is the argument that in good faith, may be worth permissible practice of worship. Intercourse-such-worth of worship when done with the right intentions meet the wife, or treat it as a good way of Allah peritahkan. Similarly, with the aim of getting pious offspring, or keep him or her from unlawful acts. And it could also mean protecting them from looking at forbidden things, imagined, or wanted or good intentions of others. "[Sharh Saheeh Muslim by An Nawawi 7/92]

If you know this new, meaningful during this time, you lose big, because so many charities that can drain your routine reward, but you always waste. Every morning you eat and drink, but tastes just keep the stomach alone. If you put a strong intention to bring it back so that it can run a worship, of mountain of reward can be yours.

Thus, intentions during this encourages you perform a variety of routines you, as though in vain. Biological satisfaction, pleasure, refreshing, and others must be achieved from your routine, whether or not you meniatkannya. But not so with reward and pleasure of Allah Almighty. Without nan sincere good intentions, you might not reach it.
Once again ponder! You give money to the wife spending, would make them happy and ultimately loyal to you. But if you put faith obligations that have been mandated by Allah to you as a husband, of course it will be a valuable charitable obedience. Besides keep your wife happy and with the permission of Allah, the more loyal to you.
Prophet sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam said:

إنك لن تنفق نفقة تبتغى بها وجه الله إلا أجرت عليها, حتى ما تجعل فى فى امرأتك

Surely you are not spending a treasure to get the pleasure of Allah, but you get a reward from him. Until then a bite of food that you give to your wife. [Agreed alaih]

If so, which one is more profitable, provide for just a mere routine, or affix intention expect the pleasure of Allah Almighty to him? The answer, of course is both.

After reading the above description, you might suspect that you are not allowed to merge with the intention of enjoying the routine of seeking the pleasure of Allah Almighty?

Not so my brother! Combining the two is legitimate, but it is certainly worth your worship was different. The more successful you are intent on purifying your routine just because Allah, the greater your reward. But on the contrary the greater your desire to achieve your personal interests, the smaller the value of your practice of worship. Ponder the following story of the Prophet sallallaahu 'alaii wa salam:

) أن رجلا زار أخا له فى قرية أخرى, فأرصد الله له على مدرجته ملكا, فلما أتى عليه قال: أين تريد? قال: أريد أخا لى فى هذه القرية. قال: هل لك عليه من نعمة تربها? قال: لا, غير أنى أحببته فى الله عز وجل. قال: فإنى رسول الله إليك بأن الله قد أحبك كما أحببته فيه (

There was a man going to visit his brother who lives in another village. Then Allah ordered an angel to catch him in the middle of the road. When the man was crossing the angel, the angel asks, "Where do you want to go?" He replied, "I'm going to visit my brother in this village." Back angel asked, "Do you have anything of interest that you want to finish it?" Again he replied, "No, it's just that I love him because Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala." Hearing the answer, and even then the angel said, "I am a messenger of Allah to you that Allah has menkabarkan love you, as you have love for his brother." [HR. Muslims]

Visiting friends or relatives, would bring many benefits in the world. But when the man at the top has no other intention of his visit to his brother than as a sincere effort to preserve the relationship due to Almighty Allah, then Allah also loved her. A great reward highly didamba by every person who believes in Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala, including you.

And the story line of the above hadith, it is understood that if the man has other interests which are not contrary to the sincerity of his love, of course he did not get virtues such.

What I have presented the simple inscription is certainly just a bit of discussion about intentions. Too much discussion about the intentions we should know, most of all realize tips sincere intention and true in real life. Though your heart is in your chest, but it is not easy to subdue. Ats-Thawri Sufyan said:

ما عالجت شيئا أشد علي من نفسي مرة لي ومرة ​​علي

I never fix something that is more severe than my own soul. Sometimes obedient to my will and often do not. "

Ya Allah, O my heart Pembolak forth, set our intentions upon obedience to You. Ameen.
