ALHAMDULILLAH ..




Meaning of saying “Alhamdulillah”
As Muslims, the phrase “alhamdulillah” اَلحَمْدُ لِله is an integral part of our deen; we are taught to say it from both the Qur’an and Sunnah and most of us have this phrase in our everyday vocabulary, not to mention we read it every day in Suratul Faatihah. ‘Alhamdulillah’ is an amazingly deep word, which would take pages upon pages to explain properly in English (which has been done by the scholars) but the explanation that follows is very brief so that we can convey the core of what this phrase really contains.
  • Linguistically, Hamd is from ha-meem-daal ( حمد or ح م د) and hamd to mention the good attribute of a person, such an attribute that is the at the level of perfection. Hamd is based on mahabbah (love) and ta’dheem (honor). Hamd is not a ‘fake’ praise, meaning it is not done to please the person or without significance, rather Hamd is always true. Hamd implies admiration, love and magnifying the praise of the mahmood (one who is praised). Hamd can only be done for a living being who has an intellect. Hamd is a sincere and true praise, a praise that the mahmood (one who is praised) deserves. The one doing hamd is doing submission to the one being praised out of humility. Hamd also includes sincere gratitude and mentioning the kamaal (best) traits of someone.
  • When we say ‘alhamdulillah’, it implies exclusivity and entirety, meaning that praise is entirely and only for Allah. How do we know this? The ‘al’ (ال) before ‘hamd’ is called “istighraaq” in Arabic, and when “al” comes before this phrase its means that the entire praise, all kinds of praise and at all times, is due to Allah. The “li” ( لِ in lillah, meaning, for Allah) implies limitation which is known as “ikhtisaas” in Arabic and it means that Allah is the only One who deserves the hamd.
  • Now with this concrete definition in mind, what does ‘Alhamdulillah’ really mean? A more suitable definition would be: The perfect, most beautiful praise is only for Allah. We say ‘alhamdulillah’ out of love, honor, with humility, complete submission and sincere gratitude to Allah azza wa jal. In the Qur’an we learn that ‘alhamdulillah’ will be the last call of the believers in Jannah, Allah tells us:
  • وَآخِرُ دَعْوَاهُمْ أَنِ الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ رَبِّ الْعَالَمِينَ
  • “and the last of their call will be Alhamdulillah, Rabb of all that exists!” (Surah Yunus, verse 10)
  • ‘Alhamdulillah’ appears 38 times in the Qur’an

syirik khafi .. ujub riak takbur



SYIRIK KHAFI / SYIRIK TERSEMBUNYI


Sabda Rasulullah SAW yang bermaksud:

“Syirik yang dilakukan umat ku lebih tersembunyi daripada semut halus yang merayap di atas batu yang besar.” (Riwayat Al Hakim)


“Sesungguhnya yang paling aku khuatirkan atas kamu sekalian adalah syirik kecil (syirik khafi), riya’. Pada hari kiamat, ketika memberi balasan manusia atas perbuatannya, Allah berfirman, “Pergilah kalian kepada orang-orang yang kalian tujukan amalanmu kepada mereka di dunia. Lihatlah, apakah engkau dapati balasan di sisi mereka?” (Riwayat Imam Ahmad)


Di antara perbuatan syirik tersembunyi yang lain adalah seperti;


a) Menanamkan perasaan takut dan gerun kepada kekuatan sesuatu yang lain dari Allah.


b) Menumpukan harapan kepada sesuatu yang lain daripada Allah.


c) Bersumpah dengan sebarang sebutan yang lain daripada menyebut nama atau sifat Allah.


d) Mengatakan: Kalaulah tidak kerana pertolongan dia, tentulah aku tidak berjaya dan sebagainya.


e) Mengatakan: Kalaulah tidak kerana ayam berkokok, polis meronda dan sebagainya tentulah rumahku dimasuki pencuri.


f) Melakukan sesuatu amal ibadat atau membuat sesuatu pengorbanan, perjuangan, bukan kerana menjunjung perintah Allah tetapi untuk suatu tujuan yang lain.


g)Bergantung Hati Kepada Sesuatu Selain Allah, Ujub, Riak dan Takabbur (bangga diri)


Sebagai umat Islam hendaklah kita menjauhi segala bentuk perbuatan yang mensyirikkan Allah kerana dosa syirik adalah dosa yang paling besar. Sebaliknya hendaklah meletakkan keyakinan bahawa segala sesuatu itu adalah bergantung pada takdir Allah dan keizinan-Nya jua.
