Hadiah

Again, new experience here being abroad. About a few weeks ago, a couple of my housemates of Eastwood A E36 knocked on my door asking me if I would like to join one of the events for their christmas celebration. On that day, they were inviting me whether I want to join the acara bertukar-tukar hadiah. “Secret Santa” as what they called it.

Previously, there were several activities that they planned for their christmas celebration; pre-christmas, I mean. The activities were such as went for a christmas shopping in town, decorating our kitchen and making it like kind of in a christmas mood, having a christmas meal together, and the secret santa.

Well, certainly I didn’t join any of those activities, except for that tukar-tukar hadiah i.e. secret santa. When they knocked on my door and asked me about it, first of all, I asked myself, why not? It’s just tukar-tukar hadiah. Without putting or connecting it with any beliefs. Maybe they did it to CELEBRATE christmas (probably not also), but I told myself that I JOINED them to CELEBRATE our housemateship (hehe, supposedly friendship but I’m not that close with my housemates actually, rarely talk to them as I’m always by myself in my room). Just for fun.

So, I told them,”Sure, I would like to!” Later, they came again with some little crumpled papers with our names on it. Each of us had to pick one of those crumpled papers and we were supposed to give present to the person that her name was on the paper that we picked.

Selamat Hari Raya Aidiladha

Maaf Zahir dan Batin

Ikhlaskah?

I rarely ‘copy+paste’ other people’s article fully in my blog. Usually, I will just quote some parts of the article.

However, this time around I found this particular article by Ustaz Hasrizal is very-very-very interesting, at least for me. In fact, artikel-artikel di saifulislam.com adalah interesting-interesting belaka. Maybe I can say this particular one is my favourite so far. 😉

Rubrik

Basically, tulisan ustaz dalam artikel ini menceritakan tentang KITA selaku HAMBA dan ALLAH MAHA MEMILIKI hamba-hamba-Nya. Allah boleh sahaja untuk melakukan apa-apa ke atas hamba-Nya. Dan kita selaku hamba, tidak layak menganggap bahawa, jika kita beramal baik, kita HANYA LAYAK mendapat yang baik-baik dari Allah.

Mungkin sesama manusia, kita boleh mengaplikasikan konsep “mengenang budi” atau “buat baik, dibalas baik”, tetapi kita tidak layak untuk beranggapan begitu terhadap Allah. Jika begitu, sebanyak mana kita telah BENAR-BENAR PATUH dan IKHLAS pada-Nya sebagai BALASAN terhadap INFINITI nikmat yang diberikan oleh Allah kepada kita?

Jika benar-benar hendak dikira, kita mempunyai DEFISIT terhadap ALLAH dari segi amalam kita.

Oleh sebab DIA AR-RAHMAN juga AR-RAHIM, limpahan nikmat-Nya masih mencurahi kita. Namun, apabila apa yang DIA miliki (yang dipinjamkan kepada kita), diambil dari kita, saat itulah kita mula LUPA dan berbuat sesuka hati kita.

Lupa, seolah-olahnya-hidup kita, diri kita, dan apa sahaja yang ada pada kita, kita yang punya!

I say no more. Selamat membaca. Semoga mendapat insight yang sama atau lebih lagi sepertimana ketika aku membacanya.

KAMU SENTIASA LAYAK DIUJI

“Mak kambing, maafkan saya. Saya nak ambil anak makcik untuk buat rendang ya!” pinta seorang pengusaha ternakan kambing kepada seekor kambing betina tua, yang terpinga-pinga.

Perlukah beliau meminta izin si emak untuk menyembelih si anak?Read More »
