THE DAWN OF ISLAM

Assalamu’alaikum Wr. Wb.

All praise be to Allah, the God who unifes the muslims thourgh the Onenes belief. He ordered the messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) and his companions to move to the land of hope, the city of Madinah. In vthe new land, the messenger of Allah (Rasululloh) gradually succeded to build a muslim community. One by one the hearts of the believers, both of people from the coming city (Makkah) and the local people, were united and awakened by him, building a small group the gradually became bigger and bigger as if they were a from of human body.

I bear witness that there is no God but Allah, no partner with him. I also bear witness that Muhammad is the messenger of Allah. My peace be always on the noblest people, prophet Muhammad SAW. He was sent as a messenger of Allah to all mankind either black, red-or white –colored people. My peace be also on his family and his companions, along with the people who follow his teachings.

Allah said in His Sacred Book :

“He who forsakes his hopme in the cause of Allah, finds in the earth many a refuge, wide and spacious : should he die as a refuge from home for Allah and His Messenger, His reward becomes due and sure with Allah: And Allah is Of Forgifing, Most Merciful” (An-Nisa’ :100)

Dear brother and sister!

Since receiving the first revelation, the prophet SAW lived in Makkah for 10 years. He was never tired to ask his people to embrace the new religion he brought, namely Islam. Every one he encountered with was invited to the real truth through his religious advices. As a resulth of his effort for 10 years, the jahilliyah (stupidity) influences on the people could be abolished and the human thought could be cleaned from the stains of immorality and evilness. Many people then believed him, and soon the new religion got a significant number of followers. This new development made quraisy infidels restless. They were very frightened to see the very expansive development of Islam. Finally, they began to think the ways to restrain the spreading of this new religion. After having a long meeting, the decided to kill Rosulullah SAW ang terrorize his companions either physically, mentally, or economically. All kinds of preaching were banned and the active persons were intimidated, persecuted, and even imprisoned. The followers of Muhammad were so tortured that their voices flew high to the sky,
“Our lord! Rescue us from this town, whose people are oppressor; and raise for use from the one who will help!” (An-Nisa:75)

Dear brothers and sisters who are honored by Allah!

Finally Allah ordered the Muslims to move to other cities (hijrah). Firstly, they were asked to move to Habsyah and then to Madinah. After the muslims had got away of Makkah and moved to the land of Hope, Rasulullah was then asked to move ang join his people . After prepraring all supplies, he asked Abu Bakar to accompany him during his journey. Abu Bakar accepted his request willingly. Rasulullah and Abu Bakar agreed to leave their own house and met each other in the night outside Makkah.

Unfortunately, this plan was known by the Quraisy infidel. They come to the Rasulullah’s house and besieged the house, they were quite sure to succeed with their plan. Rasulullah recognized wahat happened outside. However he was very sure that allah would help him. Being confident with his belief, he went out of his house confidently. Before coming out he asked a young boy, Ali, to replace him on his bed. Ali then lay down on the bed and wore the Rosul’s robe. Thus some of the infidels taking a glance o the bed thought that Rasul was still on his bed. This is the tickery of Allah toward the infidels. Coming out of his house, the messenger of Allah discovered the infidels were sleeping soundly. While stepping out his house,
the messenger of Allah read this verse :

“and We have put a bar in front of them, and a bar behind them, and further, We have covered them up; so that they cannot see” (Yasin :9)

Allah made their eyes sleep and no body could see the departure or Rasulullah. The messenger of Allah came out of his house and walked along the road of Makkah at night until he met Abu Bakar (Allah bless him). He and Abu Bakar then continued his journey. In the daylight they had to hide from the chase of the infidels , they hid in a cave known as the cave of khira.

Meanwhile atb the house of the messenger, the infidels woke up and were shocked to find that Rasulullah had already gone out of his house. They were so angry and panicked. While yelling loudly, they searched every side of the messenger’s house, but they couldn’t find him. Their hearts were gloomy. The leader of the infidels then declared “ whoever could Muhammad, live or dead, he would be given an enormous gift. This declaration made the quraisy infidels very enthusiastic to find ang catch the messenger. Once they reached the cave of khiro, they walked to and for outside the cave. They were uncertain whether the messenger was inside or not. Some of the infidels climbed up the cave. And their feet could be seen by Abu Bakar. Abu Bakar was frightened if the infidels would find them. The messenger then calmed him down, “don’t be so sad, verily Allah is with us” said he.

Although the infidels were very close to the hideout of the messenger, but they could not recognize that. Allah had blinded their eyes, hence they could see nothing. Rasulullah and his close companion stayed in the cave for about three days. After considering the situation conducive and the infidels had already gone away, they then came out of the cave and walked at the night to Yastrib and arrived there on the date of 12 Rabi’ul Awal.

Dear brother and sister in belief and religion!

That’s is a short story of the emigration (hijrah) of Rasulullah and his people. The city of Yastrib that was the destination of the messenger’s hijrah was then named Madinah Al-munawwarah. This name was to honor the historical city.

Wassalamu’alaikum Wr. Wb.

THE NEW YEAR OF ISLAM



Assalamu’alaikum Wr. Wb.


All praises be to Allah, the God who shows us the crescent in every month. The people who see it consider it as the sign a of new month. I bear witness that there is no god but Allah, no partner with him. I also bear witness that Muhammad is the messenger of Allah. My peace be always on the noblest people, namely prophet Muhammad SAW. He was sent a messenger of Allah to all mankind either black, red or white-colored people. My peace be also on his family and his companions.

Amma Ba’du

Allah said in his Noble and sacred book:

“it is he who made the sun to be shining glory and the moon to be a light (of beauty), and measured out stages for it; that ye might know the number of years and the count (of time). Nowise did Allah create this but in truth andrighteousness. (thus) doth He explain His signs in detail, for those who understand” (yunus:5)

Dear brothers and sisters who are bhonored by Allah!

Every nation has its own year to be proud of. Every new year is always celebrated happily with many kinds ofbig celebrations. Each religion also has its own years to be used as adirection in religion-related life. And in this case the muslims have the year of hijriyah. That’s the new year of Islam to be proud of by all muslims. The year of Hijriyah is used by the muslims since the authority of khalifah Umar bin Khattab (may Allah bless him). This second khalifah (the leader of the muslims), often called Amirul mukminin, instructed the use of the year of Hijriyah as the starting point of the time-count in all muslim regions. Since then, the year of hijriyah was widely used as the guidance to arrange the calendar of the muslims activities, either in relation to governmental, educational, or other important matters as well as the history of Islam.

Dear brothers and sisters!

The year of hijriyah has close relationship with the event of hijrah by the messenger of Allah and his companions. Hijrah means the emigration of the messenger of allah and his companions from the city of Makkah to Madinah. This event was named Fajrul Islam by historians which means the starting time of the free and broad propagation of islam by the Muslims. In the new city, the prophet and His companions built a muslims community and country. Madinah, then becanme the center of the propagation of Islam. From this city the light of Islam brightened the world. Of course there were many sacrifices during Hijriyah; but all were aimed at preserving their Islam believe. The Muslims at that time believed that the event of Hiojriyah had significant role in the development of Islam. Therefore, the companions of the prophet decided the year of Hijriyah as the name of the year of Islam, by the name, it’s expected that the next generation of the muslims always remember the importance of Hijriyah and take worth lesson from this event.

Dear brothers and sisters in belief and religion!

Before making decision on the calendar of Islam, our ascendants had thought and contemplatedfor a long time about what kind of event in Islam life was the most important and impressing. One by one, the event that had been undergone by the muslims was carefully considered. Finally they found out that the Hijriyah of the messenger of Allah was the most important event in the life Islam. Since then Hijriyah of the messenger was made as the beginning of Islam calendar and the new year of Islam. Based on this new year of Islam, the muslims could arrange calendar of Islam such as the historical event like the birth of the prophet and the beginning of the revelation. They could also understand that the most important event in Islam life is the Hijriyah. As a result, everytime the muslims celebrated the new year, they would remember the sacrifices of the companions of the messenger and their Jihad in propagating Islam. They would also understand that the muslims could not live individually, they have to live collectively for the sake of Islam. They would also understand that the year of Hijriyah is the symbol tounify the muslims and the symbol of the spreading of Islam.


Dear brothers and sisters who are honored by Allah!

On the good occasion, I would like to remind you on an important thing. If the others celebrated their new years with a big indulgence and pleasure, we celebrate our new year with love, endearment, and brotherhood spirit. What we do should be in conformity with that had been done by the prophet and his companions when they arrived in Madinah.

Therefore, dear brothers and sisters, be afraid of Allah!

Protect this Islam year and keep in mind the names of the months. Use the year of Hijriyah in yourv daily life. The companions of the messenger had decided the year of Hijriyah as the year of Islam in order that you use it in your daily life. More importantly, the year of Hijriyah is also used to distinguish who is the muslim and who is the infidel.

The messenger of Allah explained

“whoever resembles a cewrtain group, then he belongs to the group.”

Wassalmu’alaikum Wr. Wb.

CELEBRATING THE MAULID (BTITHDAY) OF THE PROPHET (SAW)

Assalamu’alaikum Wr. Wb.

Al praise be to Allah, the God who chose Muhammad SAW as the chosen prophet from the Adam’s descendants. He sent Muhammad to give a good news and warning to all mankind. With his permission, he asked all people to Allah. He is the lamp that brightens the ways. I bear witness that there is no god but Allah, and I bear witness that Muhammad is His messenger. May Allah bless our leader Muhammad, along whit His companions and this followers until the end of the world.

Amma ba’du

Allah said in his sacred Book:

“We have indeed in the Messenger of Allah a beautiful pattern (of conduct) for any one whose hope is in Allah and the Final Day, and who engages much in the praise of Allah” (Al-Azhar:21)

Dear brother muslims who are honored by Allah!

Actually we no live in a great montyh namely the month of Rabi’ul Awal. This month is the birth month of the noblest man namely our prophet Muhammad SAW. He is the noblest man who has a perfect soul, manner and brain. The presence or him with all his exellences is aimed to be the greatest model for all mankind.

My peaces and bless be to you, O… the messenger of Allah. May peace and bless be to you, O… the prophet of Allah. My peace and bless be to you, O… the lover of Allah. My Allah gives His best reward to you.

Dear brother Muslims!

The month in which the messenger of allah was born is the montyh of light, namely the light of Muhammad SAW. The nur (light) of Muhammad had been created before He created the prophet Adam ( may Allah bless him), even before all things were created. This nur was taken from the Nur of Allah. From the Nur of Muhammad. Allah created the world.

In a Hadith qudsy, Allah said:

“if I did not create you…if did not create you, O…Muhammad, I would not create this world.”

Therefore, dear brother Muslims, among our obligatory during this month is making the month of Rabi’ul awal as the month of celebration to commemorate the birth of the noblest man. With the commemoration of the birth of the noble prophet, the Muslims will be able to get worthy lessons from the life history of prophet Muhammad and his companions. Many children nowadays do not know anything about the life of the messenger and his companions. Even worse, they do not have any knowledge about Islam but its name. they do not know the names of the Messenger’s companions but know very well the names of artists. They do not know the names the Messenger’s companions but keep in mind very well the names of sport stars. They do not know the names of the Moslem outstanding figures and heroes but know very well the names of singers and dancers. As a result, they cannot distinguish between the right and the wrong, between the good and the bad, and the good people and the wicked people.

Dear brothers and sisters!

This a very big foolishness. The foolishness that makes the Muslims in this modern era weak people. The foolishness that makes the muscles of Islam weak. Therefore celebrate the birthday of prophet Muhammad with deep thinking and contemplantion hence the commemoration will awaken the heart of the muslims and get the Muslims to get back to the guidens of the Messsenger SAW.

Allah is true for His praise to His Messenger.

“and thou (standest) on an exalted standart of character” (Al-Qalam:4)

BEWARE OF DRUGS

Assalamu’alaikum Wr. Wb.

Praise be to Allah, the God who permits the good things, those sre food, beverage and fragrances. He expressly probihits us to consume every nauseating, intoxicating and reason-destroying thing. I bear witness that there is no god but Allah who knows everything which are good fo the human soul and the physic as well. I also witness that Muhammad is His servant and His messenger who prohibits use to consume everything that makes us intoxinated and fly and swing. May mercy of Allah be upon our prophet Muhammad SAW, his family and all of his disciples. They are those who provide their body with good foods and beverages. Their spirit and mind were enlighted by the Sacred Book.

Amma Badu

Allah sid in the Glorious Qur’an:
“O ye who believe! Eat of the good things that we have provided for you and be grateful
to Allah, if it his him ye worship”(Al-Baqarah:172).


Another decree of His:
“Say:The things that my lord hath indeed forbidden are shameful deeds,whether open or secre.”(Al-A’raf:33).

In a narrative of ummu salamah,it is told that rosulullah SAW forbid us from consuming anything intoxicating and cause us fly.
Dear my brother and sisters!

In truth, Allah will not see the good things except He permits us to consume, will not see shamefull deeds except He forbid us from taking them. This is the law of Allah. Why so? It is because Allah whises goodness for us, and does not whish for our damage. He whises usefulness for us, and not destruction. Therefore, each Moslem must consume the good things, and must not approach the forbidden things.

Dear brothers and sisters in faith and religion!

Is it fitting that a young man who claims to be a Moslem, but enjoy the forbidden things? Is it fair that a young man who claims to believe thetruth of the Qur’an, then smoke, marijuana and cocaine? Is it fitting that a young man who claims to follow the model set by the messenger, but still consumes opium and heroine? Is it permited a young man who claims to believe the lesson of Allah, but still consumes intoxinating and forbidden drugs?

O the Moslem youngster, you are the ideal of the Moslems! That’s why, never you become part of the group of insurgents!

O the faithful knights! All of you are the hope of the believers! Do not be the murderes of yourselves. If you become drunks and drugs addict, Allah will certainly send a killer brigade in the form of various killing diseases.this cruel brigade holds firmly and weakens your body, than takes away your common sense, ruins your property, and then takes away your lives.

O the smokers of opium and cocaine! Will tou have heads without reason, skulls without brain, face without nose, skin without beauty, hans without wealth, and body without spirit?

O people who drinks alcohol and consume the forbidden drugs! Are you happy to go too far from the boundary, then sell your houses where you and you family live, such that you now eventually live under brigdes? Are you willing to sit day-dreaming like absent-minded people, together with the drug addicts, and then selling your watches, clothes, nad other valuable goods?

Once more, never do that, o the young the hope of Islam! Don’t be a corpse before you die! Don’t kill yourselves, and don’t kill others! If killing is a very cruel crime, then taking opium and heroine is more cruel crime and sadis, although what is killed is the soul. If suicide is verdicted as an evil crime, then smoking marijuana and heroine as more avil suicide though the process is in stages.

Dear brothers and sisters!

How lots of drunks who believe that strong drinks can withdraw confusion. How large number of drug addicts feel thet marijuana, heroine and the like can encourage nice senses. Such that they make night seem to be very comfortable while swimming in the voluptuous feeling. They do not feel that they are sinking in a forbidden action, and they gradually stab their own body, dectruct morality, and destroy the aims of their lives, and they live in the grave of a live people.

Swear by god thet evil actions are really alive tortures in the world, and the tortures in the here after ate much more dreadful. Imam Ahmad and Ibnu Majah told a narrative from Ibnu ‘Abbas ra who said : Rasulullah saw said

“Don’t endanger your selves and others”
