Nearly one week and i have not written anything...im so sorry blog~
I actually wrote this a few days ago, but did not have time to spruce it up, so here it is today~
This month, im not going to be online much as i took the limited internet connection. I do hope in that way i can and should and must study!haihh~
It was a very tiring day today,time stretched on and on like a snail. It was a hot, humid, dry day and it was the day that we had to run around in cricles like mad men 6 times on a very unhappy looking field full of mud holes.
Anyway, i didnt mind that much. Running is my passion, although it looks weird if people ask me what is my hobby and i put running as my top choice. I wish it was something cooler though.
So, after a weary day on campus, i came back home around 5.10, eyes half closed, sleepy from the morning activity. Maghrib comes at 5.45 now, so i gleefully jumped on my bed, put the fan on full blast,and dozed straight away. Emmm~ how good it feels to sleep. One of the best things God invented for us human beings. Oh, and by the way, i put running and sleeping as my passion hand in hand. Maybe i prefer sleeping more than running.hehe
My lazy eyes would open every 5 minutes, a biological clock informing me that i have not prayed asar yet. Its still a good half hour before Maghrib right and i am terribly sleepy. I commented to myself as my heart lolled me to sleep sweetly. By the time i woke up, it was too late. I could hear the song of Maghrib ringing in the air. I jumped from my bed, but i could not do anything, the time for Asar had passed~
Dalam sebuah hadis dijelaskan bahawa Nabi s.a.w. ada bersabda menyatakan,apabila seseorang itu tidur, iblis akan mengikat di atas kepala orang yang berkenaan tiga ikatan. Iblis berkata, kau mempunyai masa tidur yang panjang. Tidurlah! Apabila orang yang berkenaan terjaga dari tidur, lalu menyebut nama Allah, maka terhurailah satu ikatan. Apabila ia berwuduk,maka terhurailah ikatan yang kedua, dan apabila orang yang berkenaan sembahyang, terhurailah ikatan yang ketiga.
Dalam Surah Maryam: 59-60 tersebut firman Allah: Maka datanglah sesudah mereka pengganti yang mensia-siakan sembahyang dan menurutkan hawa nafsunya, maka mereka kelak akan menemui kesesatan, kecuali orang yang bertaubat, beriman dan beramal soleh.
Menurut Ibn Abbas, yang dimaksudkan dengan ``mensia-siakan sembahyang itu bukan mereka yang meninggalkan semua sembahyang, tetapi mereka yang mengtakhirkan atau melambat-lambatkan sembahyang daripada waktunya.
Sad bin Abi Waqaas, seorang daripada 10 orang yang dijanjikan syurga, di antara orang yang awal memeluk Islam berkata, beliau telah bertanya kepada Rasulullah s.a.w. tentang mereka yang lalai terhadap sembahyang.Baginda menjawab menyatakan bahawa mereka itu adalah orang yang melambat-lambatkan sembahyang. Mereka sembahyang tetapi mengambil ringan menyebabkan sembahyang di akhir waktu. Allah menjanjikan mereka ``Neraka Wail, iaitu satu neraka yang amat sakit azabnya. Sesetengah ulama menyatakan Neraka Wail adalah satu lembah yang terdapat dalam Neraka Jahanam. Seandainya dilalukan bukit-bukit yang terdapat di dunia ini diatasnya, nescaya cair semuanya kerana sangat panas. Neraka itu adalah tempat tinggal mereka yang lalai terhadap ibadah sembahyang kecuali mereka yang menyesal dan bertaubat.
Heres a few things i read that made me feel really bad about what i have been doing all this while. It may seem something so simple as to just extend to the last few minutes of the allocated prayer time. And yet, it is a fatal choice that i choose. As of now, i am writing this article and have not prayed Maghrib yet. Nadya, nadya, when will you learn your lesson ~ ALright, 5 minutes more and i will definitely be on my way for my prayers
Anyway, i would like to share an experience of mine. When i was a teenager, i had lots of pimples. REally! IT was so horrible and i had zillions of it that people called me pizza face. I hated it! At that same era, i was also not fond of praying. Whenever my mother asked me to pray, after approximately 3 times calling my name, i would force myself to get on my feet and go to my room. But I didnt go to my room to pray that is~ I just folded and unfolded the prayer mat so that it would look like i did, lie on the bed for 5 minutes and then come out of my room with a triumphant smile plastered on my face. Mom, i finished praying...i would say~
Little did i know, my mom is a wise woman. And moms know when their children did not pray. So one day, mom told me, `tau tak kenapa muka tu penuh jerawat, tu la, x iklhas ambik air sembahyang, sembahyang pun x` Gulp! How did she know. Mom said again, try praying with whole heartedly, im sure those pimples will go away. SO i tried. IT was more about feeling guilty about lying to mom than trying to shoo away the pimples.
So i thought id give praying a shot, id pray righteously for 2 weeks, and see if it made any difference inside and outside. So i prayed diligently for those 2 weeks, my pimples were getting redder and redder, but i still prayed. At the end of the 2 weeks, i said to myself, owh what the heck, i might just keep on praying. And the next day after i said that, all of a sudden, all my pimples disappeared! REally! Everyone was dumbfounded! What product did i use! How did my skin get so smooth in a day. I just smiled silently, in my heart i knew, there was only one product that worked, it was Gods~
** Hmmm, theres 2 more things i would like to share with the public, but i should not be late in my prayers right. Thats the whole point of this entry, and if i dont do as i say, that would make me a hypocrite.
**I will write on later tonight i guess, hopefully, so please keep on reading~ =)
** THeres a comparative religion seminar tonight, and it would be extremely interesting. For those who are not planning on coming, do come, we need to open up our minds on our religion and on others.
** This entry is to be continued~~~
