KEMISKINANKAH YANG KITA TAKUTKAN?

(Pengarang Buletin Da’wah Al Wala Wal Bara’, Bandung)

Kebanyakan manusia takut terjatuh ke dalam kemiskinan. Mereka berusaha dengan berbagai cara untuk menghindarinya. Mereka begitu sedih dan berdukacita ketika mengalami kekurangan harta. Bahkan sehingga ada di antara mereka yang sanggup menukar agamanya hanya untuk mendapatkan sedikit harta benda duniawi. Ada di antara mereka menemui dukun, tok-tok bomoh dan yang seumpamanya untuk meminta tangkal, jampi-jampi dan seumpamanya. Atau memelihara dan meminta bantuan makhluk halus (jin) dalam usaha untuk mendapat kekayaan. Mereka telah menjual aqidah dan agamanya untuk kesenangan duniawi yang rendah dan sementara.

So, sure enough, he fabricated a story against him, the result of which was that the worker was arrested and deported. The employer rejoiced at the result, but he forgot that an oppressed person’s supplications are never turned away by Allaah; He says to the oppressed, in response to his supplications, as in the Qudsi narration: “I swear by my Might and Glory! I shall support you.” Continue reading

SEBAB-SEBAB KEHANCURAN UMAT

Kita akan membicarakan tentang mengapa Allah s.w.t. menghancurkan penduduk sesebuah negeri dan bahkan sesebuah umat. Mengapa mereka dihancurkan? Apakah Allah s.w.t. berbuat zalim kepada mereka? Tidak sama sekali, bahkan itulah balasan kezaliman yang mereka lakukan. Allah s.w.t. befirman, maksudnya, “Dan kami tidaklah menganiaya mereka, tetapi merekalah yang menganiaya diri mereka sendiri”. (Surah Huud, Ayat 101)
