Assalamualaikum brothers and sisters,

In human life, there is a point where one would change because of the realization of what life is all about. This change could be towards khair(good) or suu'(bad). I pray that all of us died in Husnul Khatimah (a good end). But that is not the main naseehat that I wanted to convey. I want to focus on the moment where one could get realization. There are a lot of ways and methods that Allah have blessed human to get this realization, to be out of heedlessness, to be on the right path, to understand the purpose of life, to make our hearts firm believe of what have been revealed. Due to limited length and space, I will mentioned only a few of them.

1) Allah gives to human one of the biggest blessings that only human have it, which is the ability to think or akal. That's what make us better than the angels and all other creations. This is proven in Suratul Baqarah ayats 30-34 where Allah gives knowledges to Adam and not to the Angels and thus make the Angels humble to the knowledge that was given to Adam.

2) Through the fitrah that a human being will always ask themselves, what is life all about? what am I doing here? Human have the ability to pursuit in search for the truth because the hearts will not calm to rest for the false manifestation of this worldly life.
‘Every new-born child is born in a state of fitrah. Then his parents make him a Jew, a Christian or a Magian, just as an animal is born intact. Do you observe any among them that are maimed (at birth)?’ (Sahih Muslim).

3) Through the creations themselves. Through the sciences in human body, the world around the life of a human. The more we look into the creations, the more we came
to realization that there is a creator that creates all of this.

Have you seen that which you emit? Is it you who creates it, or are We the Creator? We have decreed death among you, and We are not to be outdone. In that We will change your likenesses and produce you in that [form] which you do not know. In that We will change your likenesses and produce you in that [form] which you do not know. And you have already known the first creation, so will you not remember? And have you seen that [seed] which you sow? Is it you who makes it grow, or are We the grower?If We willed, We could make it [dry] debris, and you would remain in wonder. [Saying], "Indeed, we are [now] in debt; Rather, we have been deprived." And have you seen the water that you drink?Is it you who brought it down from the clouds, or is it We who bring it down? If We willed, We could make it bitter, so why are you not grateful? [Surah Al-Waqiah, 58-70)

4) Realization through what had happened to other people, stories from the past, and the human journey/experience in this world themselves. The Quran is the most truthful and best stories that a muslim can read. Stories or events can be from the past (The prophets before Messenger SAW and their nation and etc), current (our condition, how the universe works and etc) and in the future (Yaumul Qiamah and etc).

"And indeed there has come to them news (in this Quran) wherein there is (enough warning) to check (them from evil). Perfect wisdom (this Quran), but (the preaching of) warners benefit them not." (Surah Al-Qamar: 4-5)

When we were young, when our siblings did somethings that made your parents angry, certainly, we would stop from doing the mistakes because we know we would be punish. Same goes to doing good too. It is the same psychology effects.

Lets take a look in the Quran:

يَوْمَ يَجْمَعُ اللَّهُ الرُّسُلَ فَيَقُولُ مَاذَآ أُجِبْتُمْ قَالُواْ لاَ عِلْمَ لَنَآ إِنَّكَ أَنتَ عَلَّـمُ الْغُيُوبِ

(On the Day when Allah will gather the Messengers together and say to them: "What was the response you received'' They will say: "We have no knowledge, verily, only You are the Knower of all that is unseen.'') 5:109
Tafsir Ibn Khatir: Allah will question the nations, on the Day of Resurrection, how they responded to His Messengers and the Messages He sent them with. He will also question the Messengers if they conveyed His Messages.
Ibn `Abbas commented on Allah's statement, (Then surely, We shall narrate unto them (their whole story) with knowledge, and indeed We have not been absent.) "The Book will be brought forth on the Day of Resurrection and it will speak, disclosing what they used to do.''
(and indeed We have not been absent) meaning, On the Day of Resurrection, Allah will inform His servants about what they said and did, whether substantial or minor. Certainly, He witnesses to everything, nothing escapes His observation, and He is never unaware of anything. Rather, He has perfect knowledge of what the eyes are deluded by and what the hearts conceal.
When we came to realize that we will be judged by Allah and whether we have followed the path of Messenger SAW.
But again, how would we want to know what are the steps, is there any proof from the previous nation?
Then lets go back and look into the Quran and As-Sunnah and how the generations after that followed the Messenger SAW way.

I leave you with Surah Al-Fath ayat 23:

سُنَّةَ اللَّهِ الَّتِى قَدْ خَلَتْ مِن قَبْلُ وَلَن تَجِدَ لِسُنَّةِ اللَّهِ تَبْدِيلاً
[This is] the established way of Allah which has occurred before. And n ever will you find in the way of Allah any change.



  1. Salam

    Ana love this much: "The Quran is the most truthful and best stories that a muslim can read."

    Anta's right. "Every new-born child is born in a state of fitrah. Then his parents make him a Jew, a Christian.." Alhamdulillah ana's on the right path now. HOWEVER, maybe one day, kalau ada rezeki mmg ada satu topik yang ana sgt ingin berbincang ngan akhi (atau sesiapa yang alim (ilmu tinggi) atau warak (those who practise what they preach)) pasal hidayah dan perasaan khusyuk (related to Christians).

    Sgt harap satu hari dpt clear ana's confusion. Hmm.

    Jzkk for sharing, good one.


  2. Waalaikum salam warahmatullah,

    oo.. tentang topik tu, walaupon ana bukanlah tempat untuk ditanya ataw meng'explain' bab tu. tp, insya Allah, ana akan try setakat mane yg ana pernah belajar n dengar from scholars.

    kalo enti ade confusion bab tu, lebih baik di cepatkan kefahaman tu.

    boleh la emailkn kepada ana ape2 confusion tu..

  3. Assalam.

    Akhi macam faham je topik apa yg ana maksudkan. Tahu ke?? Bab tu mmg sgt susah rasanya.

    Mmg patut dipercepatkan kefahaman tp masa dan situasi x berapa membenarkan buat masa skrg.

    Shukran wa jzkk offer untuk bantu cuma benda macam ni through email terlalu susah nak clarify atau achieve apa2 results. mungkin satu hari nanti kalau ada rezeki, boleh buat perbincangan.

    Barakallahufik !


  4. Salam,

    I already got some scholars contacts from akhi Aiman Azlan.

    The topic is too deep that it is best to discuss it with scholarly people.

    May you stay steadfast in this path.


  5. Waalaikum salam,

    Alhamdulillah.. kalau dapat a scholar nye jawapan mmg da terbaik da tuh..

    ape2 pon, we all will try our best to help enti.. just tanye the scholars yang ade kenalan, then rakan2 akhowat then kalau x dapat jugak, insya Allah, kami yang lain boleh membantu sedaya mampu..

    Ameen, the same upon you too..



Why Do We Write?

Most of us are students and working professionals that strive for the purification of the heart. We believed that tazkiyatunnafs is a gradual process as the heart needs reminder 24 hours per day, 7 days a week.
