Purify Yourself Fix the Heart

Purify Yourself Fix the Heart

Since time immemorial all reasonable people, educated and cultured crave purification of the soul and heart repair. They take a variety of ways, applying methods and pursue many paths to reach these goals. But some of them are just torturing yourself by doing matters exhausting and painful because it does not suit the Shari'a. As a result, these actions dragging and submerge them into the lust, the delicacy of the world, is oppressing the soul, and busied himself with the methods, ideas that do not correspond to reality, and not in line with common sense.

However, people who can be fair, and can judge matters wisely, he will not hesitate to declare that the ultimate happiness that make life more meaningful, which can soothe the liver, and purify themselves have described the manner and method by al-Qur ' an and Sunnah with a very clear, detailed yet simple and solid and guaranteed to deliver the ultimate happiness.

Allah Almighty sent the apostles and revealed books to show people how to fix the method to purify the soul and heart. The realization of this outcome is to mentauhidkan Allah, ie to worship Allah with sincerity and this is the wisdom of creation, as the word of Allah Almighty.

وما خلقت الجن والإنس إلا ليعبدون

"And I created not the jinns and humans except that they worship Me" [adh-Dzariyat / 51:56]

In the Qur'an and the Sunnah have explained how to purify the soul be decisive, whether someone will live happily in this world and the hereafter or vice versa? Clearly and vividly, the Qur'an explains that the foundation, the spirit, backrest, and a shaft purification of the soul which is none other than Allah mentauhidkan.

Tawheed has a very significant effect in the liver to purify the soul and fix a Muslim. Tawhid is able to unify the goals and intent, as well as aligning science with charity. So understanding, belief, practice, desire, inclination, and activities of a Muslim running in one direction and in harmony, there is no contradiction. Thus, the burden of life may be lost from the shoulders of a person, as a result of the contradiction between the objectives and actions.

Among that can purify the soul and heart repair is continuous update of the faith.

Faith that needs to be updated because it can worn as clothing. Therefore, the companions of the Messenger of mengandeng hands of another brother saying, "Let us renew our faith despite momentary" then they sit in the majlis, and dhikr of Allah.

Dhikrullah, reading the Qur'an, doing obedience is a powerful way to update the faith that resides in the soul of a believer. Because faith can be increased with reduced because the act of obedience and disobedience to the cause. In an effort to increase the faith of a believer should really lean towards Allah, that will produce fruit that is full of blessings, namely the sanctity of life, as in sabdakan by the noble Prophet do'anya sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam.

اللهم آت نفسي تقواها وزكها أنت خير من زكاها

Ya Allah! Give devotion to my soul and purify my soul, verily thou soul cleanser best

Including the way to purify the soul and heart repair is always to remember the favors which Allah Almighty has given to us. Favors it too much to count. Allah Almighty says.

وإن تعدوا نعمة الله لا تحصوها

"And if you count the favors of Allah, you will not be able to count them" [an-Nahl/16: 18]

People who always remember these favors will realize its reliance on Almighty Allah, so that he will focus in worship with humility. How not?! All this time he feels like life, health, property, children, and other respectable is a gift from Allah Almighty. Allah gave it in the manner and within the time that Allah Almighty choose, can be taken any time of award of this, and no one is able to deter him.

Awareness of the provision of Allah Almighty that this abundance can encourage a servant to be aware of his weaknesses and realize how much he needed to his Lord in all matters. However, given the favors must be accompanied by deeds blessed and loved by Allah Almighty on the Day of Judgment so valuable. Realization that by doing the merits and leaves kemungkaran-munkar, to support the obligatory deeds-deeds, because the practice is obligatory practice most can bring a servant to Allah Almighty.

Among that can purify the soul is doing deeds-deeds heart.

Heart is like the king of the limbs, if the heart is good then all will be good limbs and if the liver is damaged then all limbs were damaged.

Including the heart of the most important actions and most noble intentions and goals are one in charity. This intention has an important role in the problem received or utterly rejected a Muslim charity. Therefore we should always have fear of Allah Almighty and plead to Allah Almighty that we serve, including those who are sincere in charity.

The next means that can purify the soul and heart of a Muslim is to fix repent of all sin. Because no human being who escaped from sin. Ibn Qayyim t say that repentance is the worship of the most loved and honored by Allah. Truly Allah loves those who repent. If repentance was not the practice of the most loved by Allah, surely Allah does not test the most noble of human sin. (But) because Allah loves the repentance of His slave then Allah tested the servant of sin.

Repentance has a position that no other obedience obedience. Therefore Allah is very pleased with the repentance of His servant. As described by the Messenger of n such happy people today rediscover the lost animal horse while containing all the provisions journey, when he was safar in a very arid land once.

The joy of Allah Almighty would have a major influence on the hearts of those who repent. People who are aware of this repentance will feel the excitement that can not be expressed with words. This includes the secret why a sinner destined servant and repent. Because when repent, someone will realize the heart and honestly admit how contemptible himself before Allah Almighty. Awareness and recognition as more loved by Allah than the actions dzahir in significant amounts. This is the core of one's servitude to Allah Almighty

Indeed, all the worship that a person will bring a sense of submission and obedience to Allah, but submission of repentance emerging stronger than others. Someone committed a sin and repent of it regrettable and will encourage him to commit acts of obedience, both physical and deeds is like the heart appears to fear Allah Almighty, embarrassed to Allah Almighty, kneeling in front of his Lord admit, weeping his mistake and sincerely hope magfirah of Allah Almighty. It is much more useful than the act obedient but creates a feeling of self ujub culprit.

Repentance is done by a person required to fulfill its terms are determined to quit his sin and was determined not to repeat it, sorry for the sins that have been done, and apabilaa it relates to human sin then there should be a fourth condition, namely apologized to him. In addition to the above matters, repentance should also encourage a person to remain committed and perform various actions obey. Because the nucleus is repent it back to Allah by doing what Allah loves and hate what Allah abandon or forbid.

Repentance is the return of the hated things to the beloved things. So towards the things that love is a part of repentance, as well as leaving things hated is part of repentance. Allah Almighty says:

وتوبوا إلى الله جميعا أيه المؤمنون لعلكم تفلحون

And repent to Allah all of you that you are lucky. [An-Nûr/24: 31]

All who repent are a lucky person, but a person is not said to be lucky unless he is running away from the commands and prohibitions. Allah says:

ومن لم يتب فأولئك هم الظالمون

And those who do not repent, then they are the people who are tyrannical. "[Al-Hujurat/49: 11]

People who leave the command is the wrongdoers, as well ban people who do injustice. A person would be called no injustice if he is running both commands and run away from a ban.

Those are some things that can cleanse and purify the soul of a believer. And there are many more tools that can be performed by a person to reach the sanctity of life. Essentially all of the commands and prohibitions of Allah and His Messenger as a means to rid themselves of the stain of human sin.

Finally, if we want to keep and want to achieve the purity of soul then let us always take the methods and ingredients from the Book of Allah and the Sunnah of the Prophet, with the intention of seeking the pleasure of Allah, and mimic the traces of the people chosen by Allah.

Allah Almighty says.

أولئك الذين هداهم الله وأولئك هم أولو الألباب

They are the ones who are instructed by Allah and they are the ones who have sense. "[Az-Zumar/39: 18]

Fortunately for People of Faith

Ustadz Nur Kholis bin Kurdian

إن الذين آمنوا والذين هادوا والنصارى والصابئين من آمن بالله واليوم الآخر وعمل صالحا فلهم أجرهم عند ربهم ولا خوف عليهم ولا هم يحزنون

Indeed the believers, the Jews, the Christians, and those Shâbi'un, who among those who believe in Allah and the Last Day and do good righteous will receive their reward from their Lord; no worries for them nor will they grieve. [Al-Baqarah / 2:62]

as-Suddy rahimahullah said, "This verse drops discusses comrades Salman al-Fârisy radi 'anhu, that time Salman state telling his friends to the Prophet sallallaahu' alaihi wa sallam, by saying that they used to carry out fasting, praying, faith and they also testify to you that you will be sent as a prophet. After Salman praised them, the Prophet sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam said to him, "O Salman them including residents of hell". The answer is very sad heart, then Allah Almighty revealed verse as the answer, which in essence that the faith of the Jews is to hold fast to the Torah and the guidance of the Prophet Moses until Jesus comes. When Jesus comes, those who cling to the gospel and Jesus has to be above the law which is valid until the coming faith of the Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam. Anyone who does not follow the Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam after his arrival and did not leave the law and gospel of Jesus then he will be wretched. And also narrated from Sa'id bin Jubair [1].

In the previous verse, Almighty Allah mentioned the state of the Jewish people and the behavior of their ancestors, and the replies they get as a lesson for the generations after them [2]. Allah says in verse 61,

وإذ قلتم يا موسى لن نصبر على طعام واحد فادع لنا ربك يخرج لنا مما تنبت الأرض من بقلها وقثائها وفومها وعدسها وبصلها قال أتستبدلون الذي هو أدنى بالذي هو خير اهبطوا مصرا فإن لكم ما سألتم وضربت عليهم الذلة والمسكنة وباءوا بغضب من الله ذلك بأنهم كانوا يكفرون بآيات الله ويقتلون النبيين بغير الحق ذلك بما عصوا وكانوا يعتدون

"And (remember) when you said," O Moses, we can not wait (hold) with one kind of food, so supplicate to your Lord for us that He bring forth for us of what the earth grown, the vegetable- mayurnya, ketimunnya, garlic, beans adasnya, and red onions. "Moses said," Will you take the lower instead of better? Go ye into the city, and ye shall find what ye want! "Then ditimpahkanlah to their disgrace and humiliation, and they got the wrath of Allah. Thing that (happened) because they went on rejecting the Signs of Allah and killed the prophets without a cause true. Such is (happening) because they rebelled and went on transgressing. " [Al-Baqarah / 2:61]

And in turn, Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala says that lineage (descent, such as the Children of Israel as well as others) is worthless before Allah Almighty. Precious is the faith and good deeds purify the human spirit. Therefore, the Muslims and the Jews, Christians, and others such Sabi'un the Zoroastrian, he who believes in Allah Almighty and the end of the actual faith and do good deeds prescribed then there is no fear for him after they repented, and there is no sorrow that befell them when they die. [3]

In this verse Allah Almighty explains that the followers of that religion will not get a virtue and goodness unless they have faith in Almighty Allah and the Last Day and do good deeds that Allah Almighty blessed. And including deeds are faithful to Muhammad sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam because of one's faith is not considered valid unless her. [4]

If this is the case, then his reward is great, and there is no fear for them nor will they grieve. As for those who inkar and Kufr against it all then they will be overwritten worries and sadness [5].

There is one problem associated with the paragraph above, namely at the beginning of verse Allah Almighty says إن الذين آمنوا and at the end of Allâh said من آمن بالله what the purpose of the repetition of the word faith here? In answering this question the scholars have different opinions, at least there are two opinions in the basics:

The first opinion, which is إن الذين آمنوا are people who believe the true faith. [6] Then they disagree as to who they were?

1. Some say, "These are people who believe in the age fathrah (void period apostles) and they are religious seekers. At the same time they also distanced themselves from the evil Jewish and Christian religions, such as Habib al-Najjar, Quss Sâ'idah bin Zaid bin 'Amr bin Nufail, Waraqa bin Naufal, Bahira reverend, Salman al-Farisy, Abu Dhar al -Ghifary, and the envoy al-Najâsyi. [7] Some of them there who had met the Prophet sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam and follow it while some others are not met. It is as if Allah Almighty says: "Verily those who believe before the coming of Muhammad sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam and the people who used the religious followers of vanity and that has changed as Jews, Christians, and Shabi'un, any who believe in Allah and the Last Day and to Muhammad sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam then her reward with his Lord. [8]

2. There is also a saying, "Those are the believers of this Ummah. [9]

3. There is also a saying, "They are the ones who believe in Muhammad sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam. [10]

Second opinion, faith mentioned at the beginning of the verse is not of faith is faith. Then they disagree in determining the substance:

1. Some say they are faithful to the former and not the Prophet Muhammad's faith sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam [11].

2. Some say, "They are hypocrites who believe with their verbal, but their hearts believe not, [12] so they are grouped with the Jews, Christians and Shabi'un. [13] As if Allah Almighty says, "They are all faithful to the faith if they actually get the title believer in the Almighty Allah." [14]

Among the many opinions that, according to the author if it is viewed from the generality of paragraph lafadz, then everything can complement each other, and that thus it shows how much coverage is very broad meaning of the verse. And when viewed from nuzul sabab specificity (since dropped) it, then that is aligned with sabab nuzul the verse is the idea that is meant by those who believe in the beginning of the verse is "Those who believe in the former and not the Prophet Muhammad's faith sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam after he was sent. Because the verse down in response to questions about Salman al-Fârisy his friends who were once faithful to the apostles and the Prophet before he was sent, but after he sent them deny it, therefore the Prophet sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam said, "They go to hell ", wallahua'lam bishshawab.

Most people understand the paragraph above with the understanding that not true, they assume that the paragraph above has legitimized the (justified) religions other than Islam, it means they think all religions are the same, so there is a conclusion that may be for a person to embrace Islam, incoming tomorrow Judaism, Christianity entered the next day and so on.

This understanding is not correct, because it is not based on a solid foundation. The verse when understood in depth, did not show it, even contrary to the understanding of the verse itself, as mentioned by the authors above. Although many interpretations of the scholars about إن الذين آمنوا but none of them has been suggested that Muslims, Jews, Christians and others are the same. Are the scholars' interpretations do not understand the Arabic language properly? Or less know sabab nuzulnya? Or less know the other verses that support their interpretation? Or less know the rules of interpretation? So that none of them support the interpretation that is considered correct understanding of it. All questions were sufficiently answered with short answers "no"!, Even contrary, no interpretation of the scholars that that understanding is shallow understanding of the evidence. As one scholar interpretation that says people who believe in the beginning of the verse are those who believe from these people or those who have faith in Allah, then it is absolutely not equate them with the followers of other religions. Because the command to the faithful for their end of the verse is a command to keep them in a state of faith until the end of life.

On the other hand the understanding also contrary to other verses, including:

1. The verse indicates that the true religion of Allah Almighty hand is Islam, Allah Almighty says:

إن الدين عند الله الإسلام

Surely the true religion with Allah is Islam [Ali Imran / 3:19]

Ibn Jurayj said, "No religion belongs to Almighty Allah except Islam." [15]

From Ibn Sirin Abi al-Rabab al-Qusyairy in the above paragraph menafsiri he said, "Allah Almighty ordered the man to embrace Islam and forbids them to embrace another religion." [16]

In another verse Allah Almighty also says:

ومن يبتغ غير الإسلام دينا فلن يقبل منه وهو في الآخرة من الخاسرين

Whoever seeks a religion other than Islam, it will not ever be accepted (religion) from him, and he was in the afterlife including those losers. [Ali 'Imran / 3:85]

Ibn Kathir rahimahullah said, "This verse explains that there is no one religion that is accepted Allah Almighty hand of someone except Islam. [17]

The second verse shows that all religions are not the same, and Islam is the true religion of Allah Almighty hand. Whoever religion other than Islam after the Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam was sent, then religion would not be accepted by Allah Almighty.

2. Contrary to the paragraph that indicates that followers of Judaism, Christianity and against the unbelievers are unbelievers.

Allah Almighty says:

إن الذين كفروا من أهل الكتاب والمشركين في نار جهنم خالدين فيها أولئك هم شر البرية

Surely those who disbelieve the scribes and the idolaters (will go) hell Hell, they dwell therein, they are the worst of creatures. [Al-Bayyinah/98: 6]

Abu Ja'far al-Thabary rahimahullah said, "verily those who disbelieve in Allah and His Messenger Muhammad sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam and deny the prophethood of Jews, Christians and polytheists, they are all going to hell and live in it for ever. [18]

In another verse Allah Almighty says.

لقد كفر الذين قالوا إن الله ثالث ثلاثة وما من إله إلا إله واحد وإن لم ينتهوا عما يقولون ليمسن الذين كفروا منهم عذاب أليم

"Surely, disbelievers are those who say," Allah is one of three gods ", but no one ever gods (who are entitled diibadahi) besides Allah, the One. If they are not stopped from what they say it is, surely the disbelievers among them a painful torment will be overwritten. " [Al-Maidah / 5:73]

The second paragraph above shows that is not the same between the infidel Muslims.

3. Contrary also to the generality of paragraph treatise that shows the Prophet sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam.

Allah Almighty says:

وما أرسلناك إلا كافة للناس بشيرا ونذيرا ولكن أكثر الناس لا يعلمون

And We have not sent you but to all mankind as a bearer of glad tidings and a warner, but most people do not know. [Saba/34: 28]

Fakhruddin al-Razi said that this verse shows that Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala make Islam as an eraser over the previous religions. [19]

If a religion has been removed and canceled by Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala with the Lord of the Worlds of Islam, then it is not worth as creatures of Allah Almighty certify and justify the faith once in naskh (canceled) by Allah.

Understanding of the above is also contrary to historical fact propaganda Prophet sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam who invites ahlu book to convert to Islam by sending a letter to them. Among them he sent Dihyah bin Khalifah al-Kalby to send a letter to the king of the Romans, and also sent 'Abdullah ibn al-Sahmi Hudzafah to the king of Persia, and sent' Amr ibn al-Dhamry Umaiyyah to Najasyi (called king) Habasyah, and sent Hathib ibn Abi al-Muqaiqis Balta'ah to the king of Egypt, and also sent Sulaith ibn 'Amr al-' Amury to Haudzah ibn 'Ali al-Hanafy at Yamamah. [20]

It shows that Christians and other religious believers are part of the object of propaganda that should be invited to Islam and abandon the old religion which he believed earlier. Because their religion if it is legal or equal to Islam after the coming of the Messenger, then to what the Prophet sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam bother inviting them to Islam?

From the above description it is instructive, including:
1. The followers of divine religions before Islam, those who believe in Allah and the Last Day, and do not shirk, or those who believe in the Messenger after he was sent, then they will have good luck. As for those who commit shirk or believe in Allah and the Last Day but after the coming of the Messenger of them inkar and do not believe in it then they will get hurt.

2. Islam is the last religion before removing religion.

3. True religion on the side of Allah SWT is the religion of Islam.

4. The Messenger sent by Allah Almighty throughout the layers of people, in contrast to Moses and Jesus, they sent only to the Children of Israel just before the data Prophet sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam. Even later when Jesus comes down to earth he will follow the law of the Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam.

5. Understand religious pluralism which states that all religions are the same is a false understanding and not in line with Islamic teachings.

Washallallahu Nabiyinaa alaa Muhammad wa 'ala aalihi washahbihi wasallam

The love and closeness of Fellow Believers

Shaykh Salih bin Abdul Aziz Shaikh aalu

Indeed Allah Almighty has made walâyah (closeness and love) among the believers. Therefore, a believer should love his brother fellow believer sincerely from his heart. Because of their careful both love Allah, His Messenger love, and subject to surrender to Him by following Islam. Allah Almighty says:

والمؤمنون والمؤمنات بعضهم أولياء بعض

And those who believe, men and women, most of them (are) a trustee (helper) for others. [At-Tawbah / 9:71]

Because a fellow believer believer loves for his brother, then he will help him and defend his honor. He was not willing his brother insulted or denigrated. If his brother humiliated, he will appear to defend, because it is a consequence of love.

A believer will not accuse other believers with false accusations, especially the allegations by mistake because his brother. Because walâyah (closeness and love) it will encourage him to give advice to his brother, he wants his brother to get the goodness kindness as he wants it for himself. Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam said:

لا يؤمن أحدكم حتى يحب لأخيه ما يحب لنفسه

It is not a person of faith that he loves you (good) to his brother as he loves for himself [HR. Bukhari and Muslim]

Everyone was often or never make mistakes. Mentioned in a hadith:

عن أنس أن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم قال كل ابن آدم خطاء وخير الخطائين التوابون

From Anas radi 'anhu that the Prophet sallallaahu' alaihi wa sallam said, "All the descendants of Adam often make mistakes and the best of a lot of people who err are those who repent a lot." [HR. Ahmad; Tirmidhi; Ibn Majah; Darimi]

If a believer falls into error, then it is appropriate that other believers try to give advice, because it's real human heart like and easily accept sincere advice from the heart. Not vice versa, to expose the errors in the public annoyance or shed. At that moment no faith among the believers into a strong bond, they will protect and help.

Unfortunately, lack of vigor execute the command of Allah Almighty and His Messenger have command and evenly spread in the community, so that most of them contain majlis-majlis reproach and disruption to their brethren of fellow believers.

Most people are weak in faith, if heard his brother fall into falsehood or error, they pass it and think it is a form of advice (sincerity; defense). In fact, it is contrary to the true consequences of faith and love for each other consequences of the believers. It's when they mentioned it right. So what if he mentioned it was not true? What if he mentioned it was a lie and spread by many people regardless of their brothers honor fellow believer?! Allah Almighty says:

والذين يؤذون المؤمنين والمؤمنات بغير ما اكتسبوا فقد احتملوا بهتانا وإثما مبينا

And those who hurt the people who believers and the believing women without mistakes they do, then surely they have to bear the real lies and sin. [Al-Ahzâb/33: 58]

In this noble verse Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala to explain that people who harm the believers and the believing women without mistakes they do, then they have to bear the true and real sin lies. Included in this was a lie to accuse and spread the word. Because they only hear the bad news, then spread and repeated. They do not have concrete evidence. Therefore, they bear sin real, real immoral acts. The culprit did not get the reward, he even bear the sin and evil in the world and the hereafter.

The nature of this poor, that accuses the false accusations against people of faith, who are threatened in this great verse, often by humans since ancient times.

There is a group of people or Shiite Rafidhah ancient and next have accused the believers and the believing women, the highest of their faith, namely the companions of Rasulullah SAW, with accusations that they never did. It is a lie and the real sin, as stated by Allah Almighty. This accusation has spread among humans in ancient times and today.

There is also a group of people from this community who accuse the Ulama them, when the cleric is to accompany the companions in the faith and practice of Islam. They followed the instructions of Allah Almighty, the road climbing the Sunnah, and invites the aqidah of tawhid, Aqeedah as-righteous ones.

Scholars vanity accusations against the spread in society in ancient times and now are weak in faith. Among them are some who say based on conjecture, not based on a convincing, "I thought so." Then there are other people on the council who hear and convey to someone else. He said, "A man is told that such and such", then came the third person and say, "I've heard so", then came the fourth and said, "A person who tsiqah (reliable) has told me so". Then came the fifth and correct it as news, is considered a truth that can not be discussed again. Then the news spread in the community, but it is a false accusation against the cleric.

The Prophet sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam said about backbiting:

ذكرك أخاك بما يكره

You call your brother with what he hates.

Then he asked:

أفرأيت إن كان في أخي ما أقول

"What do you think, if what I said was actually there on my brother?"

He sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam replied:

إن كان فيه ما تقول فقد اغتبته وإن لم يكن فيه فقد بهته

If what you say is true, it means that you have mengghibahnya. If no to him, means you have to make it lie. [HR. Muslim, no. 2589; Tirmidhi, no. 1935, Abu Dawud, no. 4874]

This is a fact in many majlis. They talk about the good people, the chosen people, the scholars are invited to the instructions, the Aqeedah of the Salaf taught our people, in order to invite people cling to Islam. They accuse the Ulama to something that does not exist on them or they do not. Their words remains a speculation basis only, whereas Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala says:

يا أيها الذين آمنوا اجتنبوا كثيرا من الظن

O ye who believe, avoid most ancient suspects (suspicion) [Al-Hujurat/49: 12]

Almighty Allah obliges the believers away from allegation among them. Allah also requires the believers away from mutual reproach. If mutually denounced each other only forbidden, then what if the reproach directed to Ulema who are inheritors of the Prophets. He sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam said:

وإن العلماء ورثة الأنبياء وإن الأنبياء لم يورثوا دينارا ولا درهما ورثوا العلم فمن أخذه أخذ بحظ وافر

And indeed the scholars were the inheritors of the Prophets. The Prophet was not bequeath dinars and dirhams, but pass the science. Whoever took it then he has taken part much. [HR. Abu Dawud no: 3641; Tirmidhi, no: 3641; Ibn Majah no: 223; Ahmad 4/196; Darimi no: 1/98. haditn is considered hasan by Shaykh Salim al-Hilali in Bahjatun Nâzhirin 2/470, hadith no: 1388]

It's a sad fact. It should majlis-majlis the believers net of lies and of the things that can bring a real sin and big sin.

Obligations of those who believe are helping each other and love each other. And the fruit of the love between each other it is a honor guard. And the highest honor that is entitled to be taken care of this people is an honor scholar. Presupposition bad to the Ulema, only the perpetrator's own detriment, because its adverse effects will return to the perpetrator.

Similarly denounce believers with something they did not do. This bad behavior has also spread in most majlis-majlis. They accuse others only on the basis of conjecture. This bad behavior must be stopped! Because criticizing others and pass meaningful self-deprecating. Did we hear the word of Allah Almighty:

ولا تلمزوا أنفسكم

And do yourself criticizing [al-Hujurat/49: 11]

If a faithful believer who denounced his brother, in fact he was self-deprecating, as a believer is a brother to another believer. Supposedly, he was trying to protect and defend his honor. If someone saw or heard vices of others, then he spread it, meaning he does not care about sin and evil consequences, yet the Prophet sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam said to Mu'adh radi anhu while motioning towards the tongue:

كف عليك هذا

Hold it!

Mu'adh radi anhu asked:

يا نبي الله وإنا لمؤاخذون بما نتكلم به?

O Prophet of Allah, whether we shall be tormented with speech because we say?

He replied:

ثكلتك أمك يا معاذ وهل يكب الناس في النار على وجوههم أو على مناخرهم إلا حصائد ألسنتهم

Pity thou O Mu'adh! Is there a man who plunged into Hell on their faces or their noses in addition to the results (negative consequences) of their tongues? ". [Saheeh al-Tirmidhi, no: 2616; Ibn Majah, no: 3872; Ahmad 5/230, 236, 237, 245; etc.; Classed as saheeh by Shaykh al-Albani in Saheeh al-Sagheer Jâmi'ish, no: 5126 and Irwâ'ul Ghalîl, no. 413]

Therefore, whoever heard of anything, but he has not ascertain the truth, then do not ever talk about him. Due to preserve the honor of a believer is obligatory. When he heard about something and had to make sure the truth, then he should not pass it and pass on to others. He was obliged to give advice in secret. For if the sins were distributed in the community, then they will be underestimated. So spread the word it would be easier for the spread of sin after previously deployed with deeds.

Let us pay attention to this huge problem. That is the problem to give advice to the believers. Provide advice while maintaining their honor, guiding and directing it to do things that can bring good.

Let us keep the honor of the scholars. Because if the scholars denounced, then their words will not be heard. Their position as a noble counselor, and preacher fatwa giver will be lost. Because tabi'at most people, if there is someone else who has a bad reputation, then they would not hear his words.

Therefore, we are obliged to maintain the honor of our Ulama of bad things they disclose. Not only the scholars, even we are also required to maintain the honor of the whole of the Faithful according to position in the faith, in accordance with its position in executing the command of Allah and His Messenger command. This is an important case. Do we fill our majlis with rumors, "So and so has been said", "Someone else said," that if we pay attention, words that hurt the believers with something they never did.

We ask Allah the Supreme Court in order to purify our tongues and our hearing. And that makes us including those who utter words of truth and includes clean-hearted people who always husnuz zhan (kind thought) against the Muslims. I beg guidance, devotion, 'afaf (honor; glory), and adequacy to Allah for me and for all of you. Allah knows best
