The Words of Allah


Have we ever moved by the words of people, humans, insan? Words in the form of speech or writing. But have we ever wonder, why? Why this 'kalb' of us trembles, angers, cries, shocks, sad, excites, sparks, motivates, suka, duka, riang and everything that can be described by words.

Have we ever reflect, why we couldn't control it? Control these feelings which are unseen but real. Do you know that Allah SWT created you? Don't you realize the greatness of Allah just because you couldn't control your own feelings?

But do we ever, ever ponder on what He is saying to us? Are we arrogant enough to be touched by the words of people but not by Allah?

Think and imagine yourself.
إِلَىٰ رَبِّكَ يَوۡمَٮِٕذٍ ٱلۡمُسۡتَقَرُّ (١٢) يُنَبَّؤُاْ ٱلۡإِنسَـٰنُ يَوۡمَٮِٕذِۭ بِمَا قَدَّمَ وَأَخَّرَ (١٣) بَلِ ٱلۡإِنسَـٰنُ عَلَىٰ نَفۡسِهِۦ بَصِيرَةٌ۬ (١٤
Unto your Lord (Alone) will be the place of rest that Day. (12) On that Day man will be informed of what he sent forward (of his evil or good deeds), and what he left behind (of his good or evil traditions). (13) Nay! Man will be a witness against himself [as his body parts (skin, hands, legs, etc.) will speak about his deeds]. (14) [SurahAl-Qiamah: 12-14]

When you were brought up to Allah and were about to be judged. Then, your limbs moved and your..
Mouth: I rarely recite the Quran, but I recite the songs that I liked and memorized like ... (you know better) and never feels tired and made my day.
Ear: I rarely hear the recitation of Quran, but I listened to back bitting, faulty words, musics... (you know better) and never feels boring.
Eye: I looked to Quran everyday on my shelf but I never look inside it, but I watch movies every week for 2 hours plus youtubes everyday for 2 hours and ... (you know better) and never feels sleepy.
Hand: I only hold the Quran when I bought it and put it away, but I hold onto the controller, the shopping bags, laptops and (you know better) and never feels like to put it away.
Don't we think how arrogant we are? We, which was created from a clot (a piece of thick coagulated blood) [Surah Al-Alaq:2] by Allah SWT to remove completely the book of Allah as our source to revive the heart and change it to something which is not beneficial. Are we saying that there is better than the book of Allah which shown by our actions although we never say so? Imagine how humiliated and embarrassed we would be on the day of judgement.
خَـٰشِعَةً أَبۡصَـٰرُهُمۡ تَرۡهَقُهُمۡ ذِلَّةٌ۬‌ۚ ذَٲلِكَ ٱلۡيَوۡمُ ٱلَّذِى كَانُواْ يُوعَدُونَ (٤٤
With their eyes lowered in fear and humility, ignominy covering them (all over)! That is the Day which they were promised! (44) [ Surah Al-Ma'arij: 44]
If we feel something wrong in the heart right now, say Alhamdulillah and thank to Allah because He still give us iman and time (still alive) to realize and repent sincerely. He is The Most-Fogiving and Most-Merciful.
يَـٰٓأَيُّہَا ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُواْ تُوبُوٓاْ إِلَى ٱللَّهِ تَوۡبَةً۬ نَّصُوحًا عَسَىٰ رَبُّكُمۡ أَن يُكَفِّرَ عَنكُمۡ سَيِّـَٔاتِكُمۡ وَيُدۡخِلَڪُمۡ جَنَّـٰتٍ۬ تَجۡرِى مِن تَحۡتِهَا ٱلۡأَنۡهَـٰرُ يَوۡمَ لَا يُخۡزِى ٱللَّهُ ٱلنَّبِىَّ وَٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُواْ مَعَهُ ۥ‌ۖ نُورُهُمۡ يَسۡعَىٰ بَيۡنَ أَيۡدِيہِمۡ وَبِأَيۡمَـٰنِہِمۡ يَقُولُونَ رَبَّنَآ أَتۡمِمۡ لَنَا نُورَنَا وَٱغۡفِرۡ لَنَآ‌ۖ إِنَّكَ عَلَىٰ ڪُلِّ شَىۡءٍ۬ قَدِيرٌ۬ (٨

O you who believe! Turn to Allâh with sincere repentance! It may be that your Lord will expaite from you your sins, and admit you into Gardens under which rivers flow (Paradise) the Day that Allâh will not disgrace the Prophet (Muhammad SAW) and those who believe with him, Their Light will run forward before them and (with their Records — Books of deeds) in their right hands They will say: "Our Lord! Keep perfect our Light for us [and do not put it off till we cross over the Sirât (a slippery bridge over the Hell) safely] and grant us forgiveness. Verily, You are Able to do all things." (8) [Surah At-Tahrim:8]
If not, then 'tepuk dada, tanye diri sendiri', there might be some ill in the heart and by reciting the Quran, this heart disease can be cure, Insya Allah.
Be balance. Come back to the recitation of Quran, take 5 minutes to ponder its deep meaning. Work yourself on the remembrance of Allah so that Allah will not forget you on the judgement day.
Wallahu Ta'ala A'lam.
