Believe in the right thing

One shall never questioned the real intention/reason behind others action when they are doing something right. Judgment by human towards other should only be on the things they did not behind the intention. A false action is false, when it is obviously against the Sharia. Vice versa.

What’s up with the statement? Well, I came across this and made me think. And Mr. S. whispered in my heart about ‘things’… Astaghfirullah…

From the Amir al-Muminin Abu Hafs ‘Umar ibn al-Khattab, radiya’llahu ‘anhu, that he said, “I heard the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, saying, ‘Actions are only by intentions, and every man has only that which he intended. Whoever’s emigration is for Allah and His Messenger then his emigration is for Allah and His Messenger. Whoever’s emigration is for some worldly gain which he can acquire or a woman he will marry then his emigration is for that for which he emigrated’.”

It is just the matter of understanding, as well as the method to achieve the same dream at the end. In the things that we see it in the same way, we agree. Difference of view, well, don’t let that ruin the Ukhuwwah among us.

    I think it’s one thing to assume of people when they’re doing good things, but it’s another thing to assume of people when they’re not doing something good. I don’t really know, and I suppose I can never really be sure, but I sometimes get a feeling that some of the surau people in Auckland give me the cold shoulder, perhaps because I don’t join in in surau activities like most other people? And I think it’s unfair if that’s the reason why they can’t even afford to give me a smile (despite the fact that we terserempak tengah jalan, and me deliberately smiling at him as, you know, sort of like a sign of saying Hi). Again, I can’t be sure, but I suppose it’s always something when someone you know suddenly quite deliberately act in front of you as if he doesn’t know you (in other words, to deliberately ignore). I don’t know, maybe he didn’t mean it, but on a more general note, I think it’s just ridiculous for people to judge the intention of others, and to decide that they are too holy to socialise with people who don’t fit in their own criteria of what makes a “good” Muslim. I think ukhuwwah is not selective – you don’t call a “brother” only the people whom you think are “good” Muslims, a Muslim brother is a Muslim brother regardless of what he does. Geram kadang2, bila fikir (that is to say, if that is the case), and it really doesn’t help to encourage me to join into the surau activities more knowing that there are people like that around. Of course, they are only a minority (about one or two) – the rest are brilliant – but they are sour enough to repel interest. I just think we sometimes have a chronic problem of thinking that we are better than others, and I think the irony is that that works the most against us because it impedes us from undergoing an earnest process of self-evaluation, constantly under the impression that we are surely better than some people. Meh.

    Aha~!! At last i heard something from you. You’re alive! XD

    And huhuhu… ngape xnak visit aku dekat Sydney? Hm… May be later, next time, some other time… yeah…

    Man, I can’t feel what you are feeling for being treated like that? Perhaps, and I believe that it is, there is disease, heart disease which we call as arrogant. One would never act as such (deliberately ignoring people he knew) with the absence of arrogance in himself. Never let that disease pester in our heart bro.

    Or maybe what you can do is instead of just smiling at them, you start with giving salaam? ‘Assalamualaikum’ is proven to be the best word to start with every time we meet with people, be it the person we know or not. At least, it works with me. I still remember once when I just arrived at the musolla, and there is this one brother who I always came across him there, but we barely speak to each other. Once I started give salaam, now we are friends. How sweet….~~~ It would be very obvious that there is something terribly wrong in one heart when they even ignore the salaam given to them, as it is compulsory to answer the salaam given to us.

    On the point about cold shoulder, hm… That is subjective to me. There are brothers who get active with ISOC (Islamic Society) here, their actions, gestures, makes me feel as if I’m not part of them. True, I didn’t get involved much with their activities despite of their many programs being held. Somehow, I put aside that feeling and just act normally, as what I should do. Assuming they don’t know me yet (or at least, have not dealt with me, or work with me), that is why they didn’t get friendly with me. There are other brothers in ISOC who i can get along with them, and everything is fine. I always tell me self that I should not allow any ‘bad thought whispers’ to penetrate my mind and haunting me, bothering me. It will not lead to nowhere except being pessimists. And bro, we should practice that.

    “All Muslims are brother, despite of what they did”. Yes I do agree with that. Somehow, it can’t be helped to act differently to a person who call themselves Muslim but they didn’t practice Islam as a whole. Call it ‘orthodox’ or ‘extremist’ but that is what happening to me. I found that its kind of hard to actually greet and being friendly to my Muslims brothers who don’t mind about solat, who have no time in reading Quran, who seems not caring enough what is wrong and right in Islam perspective but they are fine with the lifestyle that suits their desires, which they call their needs. Man, I jsut don’t understand them. The facts that know they didn’t practice Islam as a whole makes me feel not so comfortable with them. Regardless of my lack-of-affection-feeling towards them, it does not held me from greeting them, say ‘Hi’ or even smile to them. I found it the other way round. Well, I don’t really mind though…

    There are many people whom I’ve met, and I know that not every person have the same idea on something, have the same view on the same thing, like what the pepatah said, “Rambut sama hitam, hati lain-lain”. Just for me, why should I bother about what do they intend to do, or what do they think? As long as I know I’m doing the right thing, and I’m cool with it, I should be happy and make other feel happy as well. Hm…?
