Sustenance addressing Provided By Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala
Ustadz Abu Ahmad Said Yai, Lc
Know! Sustenance as rain which is not evenly distributed. Rain, sometimes down in the mountains, not in the sahara desert or otherwise; Accidental falls are not in urban or rural areas and vice versa and so on.
Rain can bring grace, but sometimes can bring pain. Remember when Almighty Allah the Prophet Noah drowned Alaihissallam renegade! With what Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala destroyed them? With the rain that caused devastating floods.
That treasure or even the world in general! Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala is not distributed equally to everyone. Some are rich, some are poor and some are wealthy. Treasure, sometimes beneficial to slaves, sometimes harsh kelembah treasure could drag that led to suffering.
If we all already know and realize that the provision had been set by Allah Almighty, all have been divided by Allah Almighty, then what should we do? Why should we complain with a little sustenance? Why should we envy to others? Why feel humiliated? Is the property owner can guarantee will go to heaven? Is the world can guarantee to get the pleasure of Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala?
To those who have been given more and affluent treasures, we say, 'Why you are proud of your wealth? Because the Prophet sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam said:
قمت على باب الجنة فإذا عامة من دخلها المساكين ... وقمت على باب النار فإذا عامة من دخلها النساء
I've stood at the gates of heaven, it turns out most of that goes into it is the poor people ... And I had ever stood in the door of hell, it turns out most of that goes into it is the women [HR. al-Bukhari and Muslim]
This noble hadith is a warning to all the rich and affluent. Very clearly, the Prophet sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam said that the hosts of heaven are mostly from poor people. And what about the rich? Therefore, we regard our treasures more carefully again, where is obtained and how it is used?
Indeed the Prophet sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam also once said:
يدخل فقراء المؤمنين الجنة قبل الأغنياء بنصف يوم, خمس مئة عام
Indigent people who believe will enter Paradise precede rich people for half a day (in the Hereafter), (equivalent) with five hundred years (in the world). [HR. an-Nasai and Ibn Majah with a hasan isnaad]
One time, shortly after reading the verse:
Boast-megahan have neglected you [At-Takâtsur/102: 1]
Prophet sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam said:
يقول ابن آدم: مالى مالى - قال -: وهل لك يا ابن آدم من مالك إلا ما أكلت فأفنيت, أو لبست فأبليت, أو تصدقت فأمضيت
A son of Adam will say, "my treasure! My treasure! "(Allâh also) said," O Children of Adam! It's not something you get any of your possessions except what you eat then you are wasting and what-what do you wear then you make it shabby or anything you sedekahkan then you forget
The rich can buy a very expensive meal to 100 servings or more. But, if he could spend it all at one time? Of course not. Rich people can buy clothes that are very expensive to 1,000 or more types of clothing. But, if she can wear it all the time? Of course not.
Great fortune when his owner died, whether it will be taken off anyway? Not! The property will be the right heir. So, what exactly is sought in this world?
Is fame? Are compliment? Is standing in the world?
Subhan Allah! It's despicable if that be the goal of life is the stuff.
Please give charity! Air-infaq the one on the way of Allah! Doors open to the kindness of others. Surely it will not reduce the charity treasure, as spoken by the Prophet sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam.
Hopefully we are people who can find sustenance in a way the lawful and good, and can use it in a way blessed by Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala.
Prophet sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam once said:
فوالله ما الفقر أخشى عليكم ولكني أخشى أن تبسط عليكم الدنيا كما بسطت على من قبلكم فتنافسوها كما تنافسوها وتهلككم كما أهلكتهم
For the sake of Allah! Not poverty that I fear to you. But what I was afraid of you is transferred to you as the world has bestowed upon those before you, so that you are competing as they chase after her race and the world will destroy you as he has destroyed them. [HR. al-Bukhari and Muslim]
Clearly the Prophet sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam was not too worried if the people poor. Indeed, he is afraid that his people a state competition to reach the world, so that their neglect of the Hereafter.
After we heard the hadith of the Prophet sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam is, should we want to mirror ourselves and judge ourselves to be honest. Are we including those neglected by the deceptive beauty of this world?
Wealth! Whether actual wealth should we have?
Try to note the hadith below.
ليس الغنى عن كثرة العرض ولكن الغنى غنى النفس
The wealth is not called with the number of goods, but wealth (real) is the wealth of the soul / heart
In this noble hadith explains that true wealth is the wealth that is owned by a believer, that sense of satisfaction, pleasure and thankful for what has been given by Allah Almighty. This is called a qana'a. Prophet sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam qana'a given a very high taste.
If we want the world so the world will never be endless. If someone has a mountain of gold, surely he would want the two mountains of gold or more.
How long will the people who pursue the world will be satisfied? They will never be satisfied unless their mouths are filled with soil, maksudhnya deaths have been picked.
The world is not the purpose of our lives. Therefore, let us focus ourselves to truly worship Allah and fill out the remnants of our day with piety to Allah Almighty.
