al-Walaa` wal-Baraa` as Revealed in Surat aal-'Imraan (2/2)

Peace accords with Zionists, American colonialism and crusade in the Gulf, sincere scholars tortured and kept behind bars, are only some of the serious contemporary violations of Allah's Code, Al-Wala'u wa Al-Bara', practised by those who are in our authority!! This is expectable when hypocrisy raises its voice and tries to disfigure the meaning of some Qur'anic Rulings to brain-wash the general Muslim masses. For Islam to triumph again, the Ummah must firstly interpret the Holy Qur'an the way that our righteous predecessors interpreted it: clearly, honestly and prophetically, fearing no one except Allah.

 

118. O you who believe! Take not as (your) Bitanah (advisers, consultants, protectors, helpers, friends, etc.) those outside your religion (pagans, Jews, Christians, and hypocrites) since they will not fail to do their best to corrupt you. They desire to harm you severely. Hatred has already appeared from their mouths, but what their breasts conceal is far worse. Indeed We have made plain to you the Ayaat (proofs, evidences, verses) if you understand.

 

119. Lo! you are the ones who love them but they love you not, and you believe in all the Scriptures [ie. you believe in the Taurat (Torah) and the Injeel (Gospel), while they disbelieve in your Book, the Qur'an]. And when they meet you, they say, "We believe". But when they are alone, they bite the tips of their fingers at you in rage. Say: "Perish in your rage. Certainly, Allah knows what is in the breasts (all the secrets )."

 

 

120. If a good befalls you, it grieves them, but if some evil overtakes you, they rejoice at it. But if you remain patient and become Al-Muttaqun (the pious and righteous persons), not the least harm will their cunning do to you. Surely, Allah surrounds all that they do.

al-Walaa` wal-Baraa` as Revealed in Surat aal-'Imraan (1/2)

The legal meaning of Al-Wala' (love, support, help, follow, etc.) is to totally agree with the sayings, deeds and beliefs which please Allah and the persons whom He likes.

In an age where truth is presented as falsehood, righteousness is translated to rebelliance and the preserving of ones land and dignity is called terrorism, there will naturally arise many confusions about the pillars of Iman and the facts of Islam.

Those in whose hearts there is a deviation find it expedient to twist the meaning of many sacred texts because it does not conform with their desires and motives. Not even the principles of Al-Aqeedah can escape their ploys. Al-Wala'u wa Al-Bara' is the creed that guides all the actions and sayings of a Muslim and it is by its practice and application that the ranks of the believers vary. It is imperative that this creed be unambiguous to the Muslim's mentality in order that it manifests and materialises correctly in his actions.

Hidup Di Era Menjelang Hadirnya Puncak Fitnah

Category: What Must We Do Now? Published: Friday, 14 September 2012 Written by Ihsan Tandjung

Hidup di dunia merupakan sebuah perjalanan panjang menghadapi ujian dari waktu ke waktu. Setiap orang yang mengaku beriman pasti diuji Allah dalam hidupnya. Jika seseorang tidak mau diuji caranya mudah. Tinggalkan saja pengakuan diri sebagai seorang beriman. Selesai, dia tidak bakal diuji lagi oleh Allah. Sehingga syaithan-pun tertawa, dan itu berarti pekerjaan syaithan sudah selesai terhadap orang itu karena ia lebih memilihkekafiransebagai jalan hidup daripadakeimanan. Namun bagi seorang yang mengaku beriman, maka mustahil ia dapat menghindari ujian dalam hidupnya. Sebab Allah memang sengaja menghadapkannya kepada ujian hidup agar tersingkap siapa sesungguhnya dirinya. Apakah ia seorang yangjujurdalam pengakuan keimanannya? Ataukah ia sekedarlip servicealiasdustayakni manis di mulut namun faktanya berperilaku, bersikap, berfikir layaknya seorang yang tidak beriman.

أَحَسِبَ النَّاسُ أَنْ يُتْرَكُوا أَنْ يَقُولُوا

آمَنَّا وَهُمْ لا يُفْتَنُونَ

وَلَقَدْ فَتَنَّا الَّذِينَ مِنْ قَبْلِهِمْ

فَلَيَعْلَمَنَّ اللَّهُ الَّذِينَ صَدَقُوا

وَلَيَعْلَمَنَّ الْكَاذِبِينَ

Apakah manusia itu mengira bahwa mereka dibiarkan (saja) mengatakan: "Kami telah beriman", sedang mereka tidak diuji lagi? Dan sesungguhnya Kami telah menguji orang-orang yang sebelum mereka, maka sesungguhnya Allah mengetahui orang-orang yang benar dan sesungguhnya Dia mengetahui orang-orang yang dusta. (QS Al-Ankabut 2-3)

Salah satu ustadz saya Doktor ahli tafsir Al-Qur’an ustadz Dr. Muslich Abdul Karim, sering mengajari kami jama’ah pengajiannya cara untuk memperoleh malam Lailatul Qadar di bulan Ramadhan.Pendekatan beliau sangat masuk akaldan mudah dipahami,yaitu mencari malam Lailatul Qadar- jangan dipancing ( maksudnya hanya beribadah serius di malam-malam tertentu), tetapi di jala (yaitu beribadah secara intensif di sepanjang 10 hari terakhir atau bahkan di seluruh bulan Ramdahan) – maka insyaAllah pas datangnya malam Lailatul Qadar kita lagi berada di puncak peribadatan kita.

Kewajiban Mengingkari Thaghut Penguasa Zalim

Di dalam jilid 1 kitab Fi Dhzilalil Qur’an, Sayyid Qutb rahimahullah menjelaskan makna kata thaghut. Penjelasannya ditemukan dalam pembahasan surah Al-Baqarah ayat 256. Uraian beliau mengenai thaghut adalah sebagai berikut:

“Thaghut” adalah variasi bentuk kata dari “thughyaan”, yang berarti segala sesuatu yang melampaui kesadaran, melanggar kebenaran dan melampaui batas yang telah ditetapkan Allah bagi hamba-hambaNya, tidak berpedoman kepada aqidah Allah, tidak berpedoman kepada syariat yang ditetapkan Allah. Dan yang termasuk dalam kategori thaghut adalah juga setiap manhaj ‘tatanan, sistem’ yang tidak berpijak pada peraturan Allah. Begitu juga setiap pandangan, perundang-undangan, peraturan, kesopanan, atau tradisi yang tidak berpijak pada peraturan dan syariat Allah.

 

Di dalam karya fenomenalnya yang berjudul “Kitabut Tauhid” Syaikh Muhammad bin Abdul Wahhab rahimahullah menyebutkan bahwa pentolan thaghut ada lima. Dan salah satunya ialah penguasa yang zalim. Siapakah penguasa yang zalim itu? Dalam bahasa Arab kata zalim berlawanan dengan kata adil. Di dalam bahasa Arab kata adil bermakna:
