Suntikan

Pada mula aku tinggal di negara ini, aku selalu mengeluh dengan kekasih aku, kita duduk negara Islam tapi aku tak dapat belajar apa pun mengenai Islam kat sini. TV cakap arab. Masa tu kami tak ada kereta, tak dapat keluar kemana. Aku rasa kosong waktu itu. Dahlah keadaan tidak seprti yang aku harapkan. Marah aje hati ini.

Lama-kelamaan keadaan mula berubah. Ada segelintir masyarakat Malaysia yang berusaha untuk membawa Ustaz-ustaz dari Malaysia untuk memberi sedikit suntikan kepada kami. Semoga Allah memberi barakah kepada mereka semua. Tapi on top of that, aku pun sudah mula jumpa peluang disini yang menggunakan pengantaraan Bahasa Inggeris untuk belajar, tinggal nak tak nak aje.

Anyway baru-baru ni, Ustaz Hasrizal from SAIFULISLAM.COM ada datang nak inject "ubat" untuk masyarakat di sini. Aku pilih untuk tulis mengenai ini dan bukan Ustaz lain kerana pertamanya aku tak yakin untuk tulis point dari ustaz lain seperti Ustaz Hassan al Tahfiz, Ustaz Ismail Kamus, Ustaz Hussein Yee dan Ustaz Abdullah Yasin antara lainnya. Aku masih kurang untuk memberi tafsir sendiri nota-nota kuliah yang aku salin. Next time perhaps.

Tapi ustaz Hasrizal telah memberi slot khas untuk anak muda. Bukanlah aku perasan nak jadi anak muda, tapi lenggok bahasanya yang mudah dan yang pentingnya anak aku sangat teruja menyebabkan aku terpanggil nak coret sikit.

Pertamanya Ustaz Hasrizal's approach memang sesuai sekali untuk anak-anak generasi baru kita ni. He embraces technology. So presentationnya siap ada slide and projector, ada video, ada slot movie, ada slot iklan, ada soal jawab dengan audience menyebabkan anak-anak menjadi galak sekali. Berebut-rebut nak jawab! Syabas ustaz!

Si Haziq yang asalnya duduk di tengah duduk pulak ke depan dan seperti biasa bisinglah dia depan tu. Dah asik kerja menjawab aje sampai ustaz mintak dia beri peluang kat orang lain. Aiseh malu pun ada aku ni! Tapi good for him.

Anyway kuliah ustaz hari tu macam another perspective or apa kata orang meguatkan lagi Rukun Iman yang Haziq dan Sya belajar. His talk was about our purpose of life, reflecting on where we came from, what we are now and where are we going to.

He started off by showing a video clip of a person living in a small town by a lake. After zooming out, really a human being is even smaller than a speck of dust. Can we still find ourself so grand? And zooming into a human, there is just so much microbeing within us which is a miracle of Allah's work.

That started the momentum going with the kids. haruslah terkesima tengok DNA berpintal-pintal dalam badan. haziq cukup suka tu.

Then Ustaz narrated about stages of life. From Alam Ruh. He asked question of what possible question did Allah ask our soul before we were sent down as a vicegerent on earth. Syoklah dengar jawaban bebudak. The final answer, "who is your God" was somewhat near.

Soorah Al Aaraf : 172

God explained that when He created Adam He caused all of Adam's descendants to come into existence and He took a pledge from them saying:

"Am I not your Lord? 'To which they all replied, 'Yes, we testify to it.'"

I think that sent a jolt to the kids (me included).

Allah then explained why He had all of mankind bear witness that He is their creator and the only true God worthy of worship. He said:

"That was in case you (mankind) should say on the day of Resurrection, 'Verily we were unaware of all this'.''

From Alam Ruh, life was breathed into a baby in the womb for nine months. Ustaz reminded the kids that a mother had to endure hardship when she carries a child for nine months. Be kind to your parents.

Haziq was exceptionally nice that day and a few days after that. he offered to help me. Dan aku silalah mengambil kesempatan yang ada. Woo hoo.

And then a human enter the worldly life where the real test is. Ustaz reminded us all that we should know the purpose of us being in this world so that we can be succesful not only on earth but the world after.

He poked questions to the children to give ten benefits of a coconut tree. Berebutlah semua nak menjawab. And he twisted the question to give ten benefits of each of you on earth. Err sikit terkedu. Then ustaz highighted jadikan hidup ini bertujuan. bezakan hidup dengan hidup-hidupan yang tujuannya hanya untuk survival on daily basis.

Purpose of life is also with the knowing that there is another life after. Yang lebih penting dan kekal. the Barzakh and the resurrection and finally the reward or doom.

Ustaz reminded us to find peace within ourselves, get closer to Allah. The further you are, the more berkecamuk you become.

He showed videos of iklan-iklan petronas mengenai kasih parents and all that. Haziq aku tau memang sensitive dengan benda camtu. dengar lagu ayah dan ibu pun boleh nangis. Appreciate your parents and get closer to Allah. Itulah lebih kurang kata ustaz.

Do you really believe in these stages of life, tanya ustaz? If you do then do you practice to abide it?

Adus.

I think I am the one who learn alot.

izzat - maaf ya tanya. but where is UMICH actually?

memang bila dah jadi parents, baru sedar the pengorbanan and also the reason asal kita kena bantai dulu. ahaks.

Yes Lollies,Saya sangat bersetuju..kita perlukan kaedah terkini menyebarkan ISlam yang suci ini..kalau ceramah saja tanpa interaktif dan new technoloy nampak macam orang Islam tidak tau mengambil kesempatan yang ada..Ada ustaz-ustaz yang sering membacakan amanat Saifina Ali (kalau tak silap) mengatakan bahawa ajarlah anak2 kamu mengikut keadaan semasa bukan dengan cara kita dulu diajar, tetapi mereka masih menggunakan cara lama untuk mengajar/berdakwah, akhirnya minat dikalangan anak muda tidak dapat ditarik/pupuk..Tahniah Ustaz..
terima kasih Lollies.
