Some Tips On Da'wah..

Assalamualaikum Brothers and Sisters, Harap ini dapat membantu memantapkan lagi dakwah bersama.. ^_^ Insyaallah..

Sedikit Tips bagi membantu dakwah kita..:

First off, make sure you have both ikhlaas and i'tibaa - sincerity in intention and correction of action. Is your intention truly to bring this person closer to the truth? Or is it to prove him wrong? Or to show off your oratory skills? Make sure your intention is solely for the pleasure of Allah. To bring this person closer to the truth and to guide him to the deen of Allah, al-Islam. And make sure you are performing this daawah in the correct manner, at the proper place and time.

2. Know what you're talking about. Make sure you have a sound, deep knowledge of what you say. Remember that Rasulullah, may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, promised a seat in the Hell fire for whoever says a lie about him. Make sure what you say is absolutely correct. Be honest if you don't know. If you do not have a solid knowledge of what you are saying, your contribution may be negative instead of positive.

3. Have complete faith in what you're saying with no doubt. It is said that what comes from the mouth goes to the ear, but what comes from the heart goes to the heart. The Arabic saying goes, if you do not have it, you cannot give it. If you don't truly believe something, you can't get someone else to. Your sincerity and certainty in your faith plays a large part in your successfulness at daawah.

4. Practice what you preach. The best daawah is by way of example. Don't discuss the importance of truth and honesty in Islam when you lie and cheat constantly. Make sure your actions express the beautiful beliefs and commands of Islam. Hypocricy turns people away.

5. Don't compromise Islam or it's beliefs. Don't feel the need to hedge around the truth because it will turn people away. Can men have four wives? Why can't we date? Why don't we accept homosexuality? Don't be apologetic about certain aspects of Islam. Explain it in a way people can understand, but don't change it or act like it's incorrect or archaic.

6. Do not become angry. Don't let people effect you or cause you to change your conduct. Have adab always. If someone refuses to hear you out, walk away. Don't sink to their level. Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala says what means in the Quran, "Hold to forgiveness; command what is right; but turn away from the ignorant". He subhanahu wa ta'ala also says what means, "And when they hear vain talk, they turn away therefrom and say: 'To us our deeds, and to you yours; peace be to you: we seek not the ignorant.' It is true thou wilt not be able to guide every one whom thou lovest; but Allah guides those whom He will and He knows best those who receive guidance." Don't waste your time or energy with those who refuse to listen.

7. Use proper functions. Go to interfaith programs and open discussions.

8. Stay away from missionaries. This cannot be emphasized enough. Their goal is to take your faith apart and cause you to doubt. Leave the missionaries to those who are trained to deal with them. Missionaries have been trained to seem friendly and willing to learn on the outside, when their sole goal and objective is to cause you to reject Islam. Do not talk to missionaries. Do not open a discussion of Islam with them. Do not visit their sites. Do not waste your time with them. Your time can be used in a much more beneficial way than trying to argue with someone who has been trained to cause you to doubt.

9. Don't insult the other person's faith. No matter how tempting it would be to talk about the errors and inconsistancies in other people's beliefs, don't do it. It offends people, and will possibly give them a bad impression of Islam. Talk about how Islam is different, and in that perhaps exposing the other belief's errors, but do not openly insult another person's faith. Be respectful. A daawah horror story: a Muslim was speaking at a local high school, and began his speech with: "You're all going to Hell." With that, he lost his whole audience before he even started his speech.

10. Discuss what makes Islam beautiful to you. Daawah doesn't have to mean repeating the five pillars. Sometimes we are so busy discussing the pillars of Islam we forget the actual building itself. Islam plays a part in every aspect of our lives. Talk about how it plays a role in how you sleep, how you dress, how you speak, how you marry, how you deal with animals, parents, elders, children, the opposite sex. Talk about Islam's respect for women, the concepts of purity or modesty, it's call to reflect and think about the world around us. I know that one brother became Muslim in part because of Islam's respect and honor for nature. Islam is a deen, a whole way of life. Go into more detail then the 9th grade social studies text book.

11. And lastly, have sabr. Your job is not to convert people - it is not an obligation in Islam to make a certain amount of people Muslim. But it is your obligation to call people to Islam, to distinguish between right and wrong. Who is guided and who is not, however, is solely up to Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala.

And Allah, the Guide, knows best.

Nasib Umat Islam Hari Ini

The first eighty or so years after the Prophet (peace be upon him) were the best time in all human history in which to live. Pure, true, uncorrupted Islam was practiced and spread. In His Infinite Wisdom, Allah revealed the Qur'an in Arabic to Arabic speaking people. These same people, only had to hear the Qur'an and immediately they understood its significance. The greatest thing in their culture was their depth of understanding of the pure Arabic language. Islam was the means of transforming them into the most outstanding civilization of all time.

Whenever Islam spread, naturally the Arabic language was learned and hence the doors to Islamic knowledge were opened. Indeed the love for learning and spreading true knowledge was an essential part of life.

Time through the ages and the ebb and flow of Islamic resurgence continues - parallel to the obedience or disobedience of the people. Islam,
like waves on an ocean, ever flowing, moving across time - sometimes strong and resilient and at other times weak and helpless. The moment the individual and hence the society, lets go of the Trustworthy Handhold; the moment they feel self reliant; the moment they choose to knowingly disobey Allah the Creator of all - that, is the moment when the ever waiting tides of evil will overcome the 'Islam' of the people, for truly Islam is submission and obedience to Allah and His Prophet (peace be upon him).

Today the Muslims are a fragmented group, reveling in nationalism, self- glorification and desire for the world. They often carry their Islam as a kind of insurance card, ready to use it when necessary, thinking that their recitation of the Shahadah will alone save them from the evil consequences of their deeds.

We hear about Islamic culture in this pro-multicultural world of the new age, as if Islam is a cloak we choose to wear while other's cultures are deemed equal in beauty and truth.
But is Islam really culture? We have Turkish culture, Lebanese culture, Asian culture and Western culture and then we have Islam. Islam is 'the' way of life prescribed by the Creator for His creation. It contains no manmade elements; choice remains either in obedience or disobedience to the Creator. Hence freedom is an illusion.

Unfortunately however, throughout the world we have the notion of 'culture' seeping through to the mosques and those who desire to govern them. Each ethnic group believing it has a more legitimate right to lead, govern and control.
In this process the beauty of Islam; the spiritual and practical manifestation of the love and fear of Allah - courage, loyalty, forbearance, trustworthiness, honesty, punctuality and piety have been squeezed out of modern day 'cultural Islam.'

An unidentifiable mixture of one's culture and Islam often masks the beauty of the era of the Prophet (peace be upon him). The Arabic language is no longer sought like before, and understanding the Qur'an in Arabic is no longer a priority. In doing so, we have lost the essence!

How much thinking is controlled by family and societal expectations, which contain a smattering of superficial Islamic manners and 'traditions', acting as a façade against self-centered nationalism?

What a sorry state we are in!
The Zionist enemy sits and watches us destroy ourselves through our own neglect, as we leave the essence of Islam - the sincere obedience to Allah and His Prophet (peace be upon him) and commitment and sacrifice in His way along with a burning desire to learn, learn, learn!

By the time we have finished whittling away our Islamic foundation, the enemies of Allah, will have no need to work so hard to complete the final bricks of modern day colonialism. A large majority of Muslims have already adopted their language, their fashions, their manners, and their habits. They praise their tyranny and send their precious children to their schools.
What is left of our Islam?

Come on! Let's shake off the shackles of cultural thinking, nationalist pride and love of the West and sincerely follow the Prophet (peace be upon him) who was sent by Allah the Almighty to be our example.

Let's turn to the Creator. Put our foreheads on the ground in humility and obedience and then, I'm sure, that Allah will turn in His Mercy to those who truly seek His pleasure. On that day, the enemies of Allah will scatter amidst their evil plans and will destroy themselves, as we have nearly done.

And Allaah Knows best.

Pada suatu hari seorang raja memanggil tiga orang menterinya datang mengadap. Setelah ketiga-tiganya datang mengadap baginda perintahkan supaya diberi kepada setiap orang menterinya satu karung kosong dan perintahkan mereka agar mengisi karung tersebut dengan buah-buahan yang ada di taman istana sampai penuh. Esok mereka mesti pulangkan kepada baginda karung yang telah diisi seperti yang diperintahkan.

Salah seorang daripada menteri itu memilih dengan cermat dan berhati-hati buah-buahan yang elok-elok dan diisi ke dalam karungnya untuk dipersembahkan kepada raja.

Manakala menteri yang seorang lagi berfikir raja sebenarnya bukan hendakkan buah-buahan itu untuk dirinya. Maka dia mengutip dan mengisi buah-buahaan sehingga penuh karungnya dalam keadaan malas tanpa mengira buah yang elok atau sebaliknya.

Menteri yang ketiga pula berfikir raja bukan hendakkan buah-buahan itu dan baginda tidak akan tengok pun apa yang ada di dalam karung. Lalu dia mengutip dan memasukkan apa saja yang tercapai oleh tangannya; rumput rampai, daun-daun kering dan sebagainya sehingga penuh karung.

Keesokan harinya ketiga-tiga menteri itu datang mengadap dengan membawa karung masing-masing yang telah penuh berisi.

Dengan tidak semena-mena raja memerintahkan ketiga-tiganya dipenjarakan bersama karung masing-masing di dalam bilik kurungan yang berasingan di luar kota tanpa dibekalkan sebarang makanan dan minuman selama tiga bulan. Tidak ada siapapun yang dibenarkan datang melawat dan mengirim makanan atau minuman.

Bayangkan nasib mereka di dalam penjara masing-masing!!!

Menteri pertama tidak mengahadapi sebarang masalah. Dia dapat menikmati semua buah-buahan yang elok yang telah dipilihnya dengan penuh hati-hati.

Yang kedua agak perit kerana karungnya bercampur aduk antara buah yang elok dengan yang busuk. Dengan susah payah dia terpaksa memilih mana yang elok saja untuk mengisi perutnya.

Manakala yang ketiga, alangkah malang nasibnya. Karungnya hanya berisi daun-daun kering dan rumput rampai yang tidak boleh dimakan. Tidak sampai tiga bulan dia sudah mati kelaparan.

Demikian bandingan hidup kita. Dunia ini laksana sebuah taman yang penuh dengan pelbagai peluang untuk mengutip amal soleh untuk dibawa bekal ke akhirat nanti, untuk dibawa bekal ketika kita dipenjara di dalam kubur nanti. Amalan yang soleh itulah bekalan, teman, makanan dan cahaya yang menerangi kegelapan di sana nanti.

Maka adakah kita telah mengutip bekalan secukupnya untuk hari yang bakal tiba pada bila-bila masa sahaja?

Seminggu sekali dapat mendengar……seminggu sekali dapat tertawa bersama... Sungguh karakter dan personaliti yang agak berbeda dengan kumpulannya. Tertarik melihat pandangannya. Sentiasa menganggap kami mad’u nya….Yang terbaik, dia kerap kali mendengar pandangan dan buah fikiran orang lain. Tidak sama sekali menolak mentah-mentah. Tidak pernah mengarah atau memaksa. Melihat keadaan sebelum membuat keputusan…

Permulaan perkenalan adalah di jalanNya…. Dia datang dengan rendah diri memberi apa yang patut diberi setelah sekian lama hati-hati ini kering. Tatkala ini usiaku sudahpun meningkat dan untuk menerima pandangannya yang jauh lebih muda apatah lagi mengikutnya pasti sukar jika silap pendekatan…namun ter nyata dia datang membawa seribu erti. Mampu menukar haluan hidup………..

Pernah aku didatangi hati-hati yang ikhlas di waktu remaja….namun kaki-kaki yang kuberikan..sungguh darah muda tidak mudah untuk dikawal. Kalau bisa dikupas zaman silamku, mana mungkin mereka menyangka aku sudah di sini…aku juga terkejut aku sudah di sini..dan dia yang dikurniakan Allah untuk membawaku mendekatiNya. Allah yang memberi hidayah…. ….dan dia yang berusaha…

Kami di sini mendoakan hanya yang terbaik untuk dia.


thank you Pictures, Images and Photos

Mari renung pesanan Uwaisal Qarni yang berbunyi :

Oleh kerana aku terlalu mengerjakan amar ma’ruf nahi mungkar aku kehilangan kawan. Biar hilang kawan kerana perjuangan, tetapi jangan hilang teman seperjuangan.
Aku mencintai sahabatku dengan segenap jiwa ragaku, seakan-akan aku mencintai sanak saudaraku. Sahabat yang baik adalah yang sering sejalan denganku dan yang menjaga nama baikku ketika aku hidup atau selepas aku mati. Aku selalu berharap mendapatkan sahabat sejati yang tidak luntur, baik dalam keadaan suka atau duka. Jika itu aku dapatkan, aku berjanji akan selalu setia padanya.
Salam Perjuangan!
