اْلحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ الَّذِيْ أَرْسَلَ رَسُوْلَهُ بِالْهُدَى وَدِيْنِ الْحَقِّ لِيُظْهِرَهُ عَلَى الدِّيْنِ كُلِّهِ وَكَفَى بِاللَّهِ شَهِيْدًا أَشْهَدُ أَنْ لاَإِلهَ إِلاَّاللَّهُ وَحْدَهُ لاَشَرِيْكَ لَهُ وأَشْهَدُ أَنَّ مُحَمَّدًا عَبْدُهُ وَرَسُوْلُهُ اللَّهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَعَلَى آلِهِ وَأَصْحَابِهِ أَجْمَعِيْنَ، أَمَّا بَعْدُ: فَيَا عِبَادَ اللَّهِ أُوْصِيْكُمْ وَنَفْسِيْ بِتَقْوَى اللَّهِ وَقَالَ اللَّهُ تَعَالَى فِيْ كِتَابِهِ الْكَرِيْمِ: يَآأَيُّهَا الَّذِيْنَ ءَامَنُوْا اتَّقُوْا اللَّهَ حَقَّ تُقَاتِهِ وَلاَ تَمُوْتُنَّ إِلاَّ وَأَنْتُمْ مُسْلِمُوْنَ، وَقَالَ النَّبِيُّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ: اِتَّقِ اللَّهَ حَيْثُمَا كُنْتَ وَأَتْبِعِ السَّيِّئَةَ الْحَسَنَةَ تَمْحُهَا وَخَالِقِ النَّاسَ بِخُلُقٍ حَسَنٍ.

The Muslims held a Friday meeting, Rahikumullah.

Let us together increase our faith and piety, and offer praise and thanksgiving to the presence of the Divine Rabbi who still gives His grace, guidance, taufik and inayah. Shalawat and salam are always delivered to the great Prophet Muhammad SAW and his family, friends, tabi’in, tabi’it-tabi’in and all who followed in his footsteps until yaumul qiyamah.

One of the tests of faith in Islam is through suffering. It is not said to be a believer when a Muslim in his life is first forged by various sufferings. gives suffering in the form of a little fear, hunger, and lack of wealth to select His servants. Allah promises to elevate human beings who are able to accept trials in the form of suffering patiently, calmly, and sincerely. As stated in QS. al-Baqarah verse 155, Allah SWT says:

وَلَنَبْلُوَنَّكُمْ بِشَيْءٍ مِّنَ الْخَوْفِ وَالْجُوْعِ وَنَقْصٍ مِّنَ الْاَمْوَالِ وَالْاَنْفُسِ وَالثَّمَرٰتِۗ وَبَشِّرِ الصّٰبِرِيْنَ

And We will certainly test you with some fear, hunger, lack of wealth, souls and fruits. And convey good news to those who are patient (QS. al-Baqarah: 155).

The Sufis interpret this suffering as wijhat min al-ta’arruf or God’s way of revealing himself to be known more closely, to deepen his love for God, and not to be tempted by worldly beauty. As a result, there are many stories of Sufis who continue to allow themselves to live in a state of poverty, misfortune and torment. Even our general image of Sufis is dominated by images of old men dressed in rags.

The impression of suffering as a measuring tool for the quality of faith in its development has resulted in religious attitudes that tend to be strange. It feels like the more you suffer the closer you get to God. Finally, they sometimes create suffering in religion. There are people who insist on fasting while traveling, are reluctant to pray in congregation while traveling, and perform prayers complete with prayer mats and mukenas in the midst of bustling terminals. This stubborn obedience actually has nothing to do with the quality of faith.

Even though the Prophet SAW once rebuked a friend who worshiped excessively. This story recorded by Aisyah tells of three friends who claim to practice their religion well. Each of the three friends claimed to be diligent in fasting and not breaking their fast; always praying at night and never sleeping; and not get married for fear of disrupting worship. Rasulullah at that time emphasized that ‘I am the best among you’. Because the Prophet fasted and broke his fast, prayed at night and slept, and got married.

The Prophet saw was aware that the main purpose of being sent was to perfect morals, not to give suffering to believers. In QS. al-Anbiya verse 107 emphasized that “We have not sent you (Muhammad) but as a mercy to the universe”. Even if a little suffering is given, Allah has confirmed in QS. al-Baqarah verse 286 that Laa yukalifullahu nafsan illa wus’aha, Allah does not burden a person except according to his ability.

Thus, Islam does not teach spiritual achievement through suffering. It is true that the implementation of religious obligations is difficult, but the difficulties are within human reason. If there are difficulties that are beyond human limits, then there are rules and principles that cover and provide relief.

أَقُوْلُ قَوْلِيْ هٰذَا وَأَسْتَغْفِرُ اللهَ لِيْ وَلَكُمْ، فَاسْتَغْفِرُوْهُ، إِنَّهُ هُوَ الْغَفُوْرُ الرَّحِيْمُ

Second Sermon

اَلْحَمْدُ لِلّٰهِ وَكَفَى، وَأُصَلِّيْ وَأُسَلِّمُ عَلَى  مُحَمَّدٍ الْمُصْطَفَى، وَعَلَى اٰلِهِ وَأَصْحَابِهِ أَهْلِ الْوَفَا. أَشْهَدُ أَنْ لَّا إِلٰهَ إِلَّا اللهُ وَحْدَهُ لَا شَرِيْكَ لَهُ، وَأَشْهَدُ أَنَّ  مُحَمَّدًا عَبْدُهُ وَرَسُوْلُهُ أَمَّا بَعْدُ

 إِنَّ اللهَ وَمَلَائِكَتَهُ يُصَلُّونَ عَلَى النَّبِيِّ، يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا صَلُّوا عَلَيْهِ وَسَلِّمُوا تَسْلِيمًا

Happy Friday session

Islam obliges its people to devote their whole life only to worship Allah SWT. That is the single orientation that must be held by Muslims when living life. Islam then orders its people to carry out God’s commands with all the potential they have and not violate God’s prohibitions.

However, Islam is din waqi’iy, namely a religion that highly respects objective and concrete realities that exist around and within humans. When humans like beauty, beauty, handsomeness, delicacy and sonority, Islam then justifies it (an-Nahl: 6, al-A’raf: 31), provided that this is obtained in a good way and done in the right way. As His Word:

وَلَا تَلْبِسُوا الْحَقَّ بِالْبَاطِلِ وَتَكْتُمُوا الْحَقَّ وَاَنْتُمْ تَعْلَمُوْنَ

And do not mix truth with falsehood and (do not) hide the truth, while you know it (QS. Al-Baqarah: 42).

Islam is not a religion that shackles and limits humans. Islam is also not a utopian religion, which treats humans as if they were angels who have no desires or passions at all. Islam treats humans according to their human instincts. Islam really provides breadth and spaciousness for humans to experience the pleasures of life, as long as they don’t exceed their limits. Allah says:

يٰٓاَيُّهَا الَّذِيْنَ اٰمَنُوْا لَا تُحَرِّمُوْا طَيِّبٰتِ مَآ اَحَلَّ اللّٰهُ لَكُمْ وَلَا تَعْتَدُوْا ۗاِنَّ اللّٰهَ لَا يُحِبُّ الْمُعْتَدِيْنَ

O you who believe! Do not forbid what is good that Allah has made lawful for you, and do not exceed the limits. Indeed, Allah does not like those who transgress limits (QS. al-Maidah: 87).

Happy Friday Session

In a hadith it is mentioned that the Messenger of Allah said: “By the One in whom I am in His hands, if you remain in the condition when you were with me, or like when you dhikr, then the Angels will greet you all in your beds and in your walk. However, O Hanzhalah, “everything has its time”. He said that 3 times” (HR. Muslim).

This hadith shows that psychological pleasure and entertainment are two natural things in humans. The Prophet SAW even said that people who do not have this in themselves, they will be greeted by angels. Greeted by an Angel is a symbolic greeting that shows one thing that is impossible to happen. The meaning is that Islam does not teach someone to stay away from pleasure and entertainment. On the contrary, Islam actually teaches that seeking peace, resting, seeking entertainment can be done, but it must be in accordance with the portion.

Islam does not forbid entertainment at all, with the following conditions: it does not contain harmful elements, does not display the body and genitals, does not contain magical elements (magic), does not harm animals, does not contain gambling elements, does not harass and insult other people or groups, and does not excessively or excessively.

Happy Friday Session

Let us pray to Allah SWT.

إِنَّ اللهَ وَمَلاَئِكَتَهُ يُصَلُّوْنَ عَلَى النَّبِيِّ، يَاأَيُّهاَ الَّذِيْنَ ءَامَنُوْا صَلُّوْا عَلَيْهِ وَسَلِّمُوْا تَسْلِيْمًا. اَللَّهُمَّ صَلِّ وَسَلِّمْ وَبَارِكْ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَعَلَى آلِهِ وَأَصْحَابِهِ وَقَرَابَتِهِ وَأَزْوَاجِهِ وَذُرِّيَّاتِهِ أَجْمَعِيْنَ.

اَللَّهُمَّ اغْفِرْ لِلْمُسْلِمِيْنَ وَالْمُسْلِمَاتِ وَالْمُؤْمِنِيْنَ وَالْمُؤْمِنَاتِ اْلأَحْيَاءِ مِنْهُمْ وَاْلأَمْوَاتِ، إِنَّكَ قَرِيْبٌ مُجِيْبُ الدَّعَوَاتِ وَيَا قَاضِيَ الْحَاجَاتِ

عِبَادَ اللهِ، إِنَّ اللهَ يَأْمُرُكُمْ بِالْعَدْلِ وَاْلإِحْسَانِ وَإِيتَآئِ ذِي الْقُرْبَى وَيَنْهَى عَنِ الْفَحْشَآءِ وَالْمُنكَرِ وَالْبَغْيِ يَعِظُكُمْ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَذَكَّرُوْنَ

فَاذْكُرُوا اللهَ الْعَظِيْمَ يَذْكُرْكُمْ وَادْعُوْهُ يَسْتَجِبْ لَكُمْ وَلَذِكْرُ اللهِ أَكْبَرُ
