In the age of nano technology,we don't even have the time to think-what more to ponder.Things are moving too fast.Even Ramdhan is coming to end soon...one event and another takes place in our everyday life and we just move with time. IMHO, just moving along with the current flow is not enough,worse still we may go astray following our nafs.
A few days ago, my good friend Gukita sent me a list of Ayat from Juzu' Amma for me to read and to ponder.To ponder means to think and reflect.Below is an example:
|89:27||O soul that art at rest!||يَا أَيَّتُهَا النَّفْسُ الْمُطْمَئِنَّةُ|
|89:28||Return to your Lord, well-pleased (with him), well-pleasing (Him),||ارْجِعِي إِلَى رَبِّكِ رَاضِيَةً مَّرْضِيَّةً|
|89:29||So enter among My servants,||فَادْخُلِي فِي عِبَادِي|
|89:30||And enter into My garden.||وَادْخُلِي جَنَّتِي|
The ayat 27 refers to nafsu al-Mutmainah.I know it is not easy to achieve such a state of tranquility, but with a month of fasting in this Ramadhan,I hope our hearts are moving in the direction if the hearts got the tarbiah from fasting and other ibadah we did this month.If we did not do anything,don't expect any change to our hearts.
Here is the list given:
May I suggest for all of us to take some time to read these ayats and reflect upon them before the arrival of Shawal 1426.After the reflection,take some time to write what you have understood and plan to improve ourselves before the ARRIVAL of the next Ramadhan.Otherwise,we shall remain at square one every year of our lives.
SELAMAT HARI RAYA-MAAF ZAHIR BATIN TO ALL.
