Salam, good day. Selamat Hari Raya Aidiladha to all bruneidaily muslims readers. Brunei Darussalam mark the Aildiladha last Monday, 10 Zulhijjah and now we are in the remaining days of Tasyrik 11, 12 and 13 Zulhijjah. Few buddies of mine were in Mecca and Medinah to perform Haj, I pray for their health and may Allah bless them. Also, I’m yet to have the daging korban *hint*.
Recently I’ve read an article somewhere in our local newspaper which touches on our daily life, I mean some sort of guidance how to live our life in much better way.
Actually I didn’t read the whole article, but just kind of looking at certain points. It came to my interest it was such an excellent article. Somewhere in the middle part of the article ‘…what is the fastest thing in this universe? wind not really, sound not quite…’. Haha,..big questions in my mind. But what is the fastest? The writer wrote ‘…the fastest is the doa, direct to Allah…’. Allahuakbar, I’m touched!
Did we noticed about this before? Did we noticed how closed is Allah to us? Did we noticed Allah is always listening to our doa? Also, did we noticed that we already have enough and few others are living underprivileged?
Prophet Muhammad reported to have said “Doa is the very essence of worship,” while one of Allah’s commands expressed through the Holy Quran is for the muslims to call out to Allah: “And your Lord says: “Call on Me; I will answer your (Prayer)!”
As a human being, we could never escape difficulties and at times we are also suffering, but I believe not as a hard as the underprivileged. Financially, materially or physically this is what we as His servant have to face in our life. But we should keep in mind, Allah would only test his servant up to his ability.
Beside our effort working hard to earn a good living, as muslims we are advised to look back inside the holy Quran. They are many chapters and verses of the Al-Quran which is very helpful for us, Surah Al-Waqiah, ayat 54 of Surah Shaad and ayat 2 & 3 of Surah Ath Thalaaq to name a few (Please refer Tafsir for the full translation).
Prophet Muhammad said, "Whoever recites Surah Al Waqiah at night would never encounter poverty." Prophet Muhammad said, "Surah Al Waqiah is the Surah (Chapter) of Wealth, so recite it and teach it to your children."
This is the best scheme ever offered, no agreement needed nor the guarantor either. It is only the matter of believe:)
First 16 lines of Surah Al Waqiah
