During the last summer holidays i read loads of really nice books, but i cant seem to remember all the titles...(i have a very short memory for a medical student)...So, below is just about some books that i have read in this month.. By the way, it is in indonesian, and more to religious things...i dont read these types of books as often as i do want to, but i think it is good to read it once in a while to keep us in check as a reminder of how lalai we can get. for my friends in jatinangor, if you want to read these books, you can borrow mine, if not, you can get them in tisera in jatos..hehe
BOOK TITLE - BEGINIKAH RASANYA 7 MALAM PERTAMA DI ALAM KUBUR
AUTHOR - JAMAL MAMUR ASMANI
tHIS book is a simple book, not too complicated with things we do not understand. but any tom,dick and harry can read this book and feel fear towards Gods thereafter days...
Amongst the contents of this book, is about how we would feel in the first few hours in the grave, alone...then what would happen to us...real creepy and scary,but a must read....
theres this one paragraph that i like from this book ....
tanyakan kepada orang yang buta yang berjalan di tengah2 keramaian tapi tidak dilanggar, siapa yang mengendalikan langkahnya
tanyakan kepada janin yang hidup sendiri di dalam perut, siapa yang telah memeliharanya
katakanlah kepada seseorang bayi yang menangis saat kelahirannya, siapa yang membuatnya menangis
tanyakan kepada susu yang bersih, padahal ia berasal dari darah dan kotoran, siapa yang menjadikannya bersih
dan jika kamu melihat seekor ular sedang menyemburkan bisanya, tanyakan juga, wahai sang ular, mengapa kau bisa hidup, padahal mulutmu penuh dengan bisa..........
TITLE - YOU ARE DEAD
AUTHOR - SHALIH ASY-SYADI
THIS book tells that everything that lives---MUST die..IT IS MORE in depth than the other book, it has research on some west writers who delve on the afterlife...
it also mentions on the seven heavens and the hell that we all do not want to go too...its very informative, and as i said before, the books that i chose, are simple to read but it does give a very good understanding
some excerpts from this book
i find this part of the book very interesting---it says, the people who fall into hell will feel the torments of fire first on their skin...everytime their skin peels off and burns, Allah will replace it with another new layer, and this layer will then peel off and burn..the miracle of this, is that in science, we know that the skin is the most sensitive part of our body..and this most sensitive part is burnt first...MasyaAllah...the greatness of God
--melebur segala dosa baik kecil,
mahupun besar adalah takwa,
berbuatlah seperti orang yang berjalan di atas tanah berduri
yang selalu waspada dengan apa yang dia lihat,
jangan remehkan dosa kecil sekalipun,
kerana gunung terdiri dari kerikil......
