Sedar atau tak. Setiap dari kita ada fitrah cinta. Cinta kepada Allah, cinta kepada makhluk. Cinta pada Allah itu memang fitrah. Everyone has it. No matter they are atheist ke ape ke… because, we are all IN NEED of Allah. Mesti akan ada sikit dlm hati cinta kepada Tuhan.
But then, Love for Muhammad SAW is not fitrah. Bukan. It is ‘hubi ikhtiari’ – The love of choice. Not on ‘fitrah’. It’s a mujahadah. We need to make effort to love Muhammad SAW.
It's a Struggle.
A Reflection by Omar Suleiman. (sini)
What would it be like to be with Rasulullah SAW in Jannah?
Imagine sitting with your spouse in your palace in Jannah,
Then deciding on what’s the plan on that day,
Should we go outside or sit on our throne with the waterfall of milk and honey flowing beneath us?
And enjoy a cup of Jannah wine while smiling the sweet scents of Jannah,
Should we go to the marketplace and meet all our old friends that we used to laugh in the Dunya and talk about how Dunya was like and how we are made it here and how Allah SWT bestowed His favor upon us?
And your spouse says: “You know what? How about we go visit the Prophet SAW today?”
So you and your spouse go hand in hand walking towards the home of the Prophet SAW, you passed by the home of Talhah and Zubair r.a and say salaam to them and you go and knock the door of the Prophet SAW in Jannah.
And knowing behold, Rasulullah SAW open with a big smile on his face and says: “Ahlan wa marhaban!” (Welcome and embraces you.)
And invite you to sit in his home to welcome you and sit right across you and asks you: “Would you like a cup of Jannah tea?” (T_T)
You sit in the home of Rasulullah SAW and Rasulullah SAW gives you a cup of tea and he sits in front of you and gives you his Undivided Attention and imagine what the discussion would be like….
What would you tell him? What would you ask him?
Would you tell him about your favorite moment in the sirah? Or about how you were taught about his smile? Would you ask him what Ta’if was really like and how he would still manage to remember us as the blood spilled from his noble face? (T_T)
But in Jannah, there are No more tears and no more fears. Just the Sweetness of Success and Sacrifice. Imagine Rasulullah SAW tells you about his inside joke with Aisya r.a or the time he caught Anas playing with his kids instead of running his errands,
What if he told you SAW remembered you or how he knew your name and longed for the moment that he would meet you, what if he told you SAW, that “I remembered your Salah and your salam reached me and I answered to you, what if at the end of the conversations, Rasulullah SAW extended his hand and offered you a sip of water – after again, you would never feel thirst – not physically, nor spiritually,
For the only sight more noble and beautiful than the face of Muhammad SAW is the face of the Lord of Muhammad SAW and the Lord of you…. And for that, all you have to do is to look up and you see Allah SWT.
Don’t worry about the time, don’t worry about the Prophet SAW getting annoyed of you or getting tired to entertain other guests because in al Firdaus – you will never have to feel left like you imagine again,
We ask Allah SWT to grant us the companionship of Rasulullah SAW and the companions and his family, and the soddiqun and the syuhada’ and the highest level of Jannatulfirdaus, we ask Allah SWT to be able to see HIM, to be among those who follow his Sunnah and who’ll be embraced by him in the day of Judgement, and we ask Allah SWT to make HIM more beloved to us than our family, wealth and everything in this Dunya, we ask Allah SWT to forgive us for our shortcomings and we ask Allah SWT the chance to be starring at HIS Face.
He tried to hide his feeling while saying all these. May Allah blessed you syaykh. :(
Semoga Allah memberi kita hati yang bertambah-tambah cinta padaNya dan pada Muhammad SAW. T_T
