Bagimu yang ingin meningkatkan kemampuan bahasa arab.

Kepada engkau yang ingin mempelajari bahasa nan mulia ini. Kepada engkau yang ingin mempelajari bahasa yang dengannya Allah turunkan kitab-Nya, kitab dan cahaya yang nyata. Jadi, apa yang harus dipersiapkan wahai kawan? Ketahuilag semoga Allah merahmatimu bahwasanya dalam mempelajari bahasa Arab ialah dengan belajar penuh dengan keikhlasan dan niatkan agar dapat menuntut ilmu syar’i kelak. Diantara sebab-sebab yang dapat membantumu adalah :

1) Praktekkan!

Ketahuilah semoga Allah merahmatimu bahwa apakah tujuanmu dalam mempelajari bahasa? Mau tidak mau ya untuk dipraktekkan! Bahasa adalah hal yang digunakan agar kedua insan dapat terhubung satu sama lain.

Maka contoh bagaimana anda dapat mempraktekkannya yaitu

*setiap kali anda mempelajari suatu kata baru, cobalah membuat kalimat dengannya.

*cobalah ubah fikiranmu dengan bahasa arab, misalnya kau berfikir dalam hati :” Apa yang akan aku lakukan setelah sholat maghrib?” Ya, cobalah mengatakannya dengan bahasa arab. Pas lagi bosan di angkutan umum tanpa mengerjakan apapun, berbicaralah dengan dirimu sendiri menggunakan bahasa arab! Namun jangan menggunakan suara yang keras ya hehe

2)Mendengarkan!

Ketahuilah semoga Allah merahmatimu, mendengar juga salah satu cara kita meningkatlan pemahaman bahasa. Dan diantara mereka yang paling fasih bahasanya adalah para ulama, karena para ulamalah yang paling banyak bersentuhan dengan Al-Quran dan kitab-kitab ulama terdahulu. Maka saya sarankan kepadamu cobalah dengarkan masyaikh di youtube seperti syaikh bin baz, syaikh utsaimin, syaikh sulaiman ar-ruhaily. Mulailah dengan video-video dengan subtitle, lalu jika pemahamanmu meningkat maka cobalah dengan video tanpa subtitle.

Karena jika kau lihat, para ulama lebih banyak menggunakan bahasa arab fusha yaitu bahasa arab baku fasih yang seperti al-quran diturunkan. Bahasa arab fusha pun lebih mudah untuk dimengerti dan dipelajari. Dan diantara manfaat mendengarkan kajian masyaikh juga adalah tidak hanya mendapat pemahaman bahasa, engkau juga dapat mendapat sebagian diantara nasihat -nasihat mereka. Ini salah satu contoh channel youtube yang dapat membantu

3. Membaca!

Maka aku katakan pada engkau, siapkanlah google translate dan mulailah membaca! Banyak sekali kitab-kitab ulama yang ditulis dengan bahasa arab, kitab-kitab yang mungkin sudah mulai terlupakan oleh banyak orang. Lihat, bahasa arab adalah kuncinya, dan harta karunnya adalah ilmu para ulama dalam kitab-kitabnya! Adapun kitab-kitab ulama engkau dapat mendownloadnya di

Waqfeya.com

Ar.islamway.net

Dan cara lain jika engkau mungkin bosan membaca kitab yang panjang maka mulailah dengan artikel-artikel yang pendek berbahasa arab. Diantara website yang penuliss sangat mendapat manfaat darinya adalah

Saaid.net

Islamqa.info/ar

Dalam islamqa.info kau dapat membaca pertanyaan orang-orang mengenai agama Islam dan jawabannya dari syaikh-syaikh yang menjawabnya.

Namun yang tak kalah pentingnya adalah jangan tinggalkan tilawatul quran! Karena ialah sefasih-fasihnya kitab berbahasa arab! Cobalah membacanya tanoa terjemah dan jika ada kata yang sulit maka bukalah kamus atau terjemahannya.

Waktu

Akhir-akhir ini, seakan ada suatu hal yang berubah. ya itu adalah kesadaran. Ketika kesadaran kita berubah, maka berubahlah arah hidup kita. Jika seseorang yang sering sekali menggeluti buku, maka lingkup kesadarannya mungkin banyak tertuju pada buku, mungkin ia tidak berpikiran tentang seni ataupun olahraga, karena hal itu ada di luar lingkup kesadaran atau tujuannya.

Namun, akhir-akhir ini ada suatu hal yang menyentil kesadaran, dan begitu kesadaran itu terang, seakan membuka dunia baru. Kesadaran itu adalah waktu. Tidakkah kita sadar? Waktu yang kita miliki sebenarnya sangatlah banyak, namun apa aktibvitas yang telah benar-benar kita lakukan dalam hidup kita? Jlebb pertanyaan ini menusukku. Seakan aku tahu, selama ini aku hanyalah bersenda gurau di dunia tanpa arah. Itulah yang aku rasakan.  Selama ini kita seakan hanyalah mengikuti mayoritas dan mainstream orang lain. Selama ini kita mungkin masih tertidur dalam kelalaian dan ketidaksadaran, namun tidakkah kita tahu? Sebenarnya kita berkuasa akan waktu kita.

Kita berkuasa pada waktu kita, dan kita dapat menggunakannya untuk sesuatu yang bermanfaat. Kebanyakan kita terjebak dalam siklus pergi sekolah, pulang sekolah, makan, main, dan mengerjakan pr. Namun hei, ada sesuatu yang lebih dari itu!

Masih banyak jutaan hal di dunia ini yang belum kita coba, masih banyak hal yang dapat kita pelajari, programming, bahasa arab, menulis, membaca, bertemu komunitas, maka sungguh kita dapat memanfaatkan waktu luang kia  untuk melakukan hal-hal seperti itu.

‘Ujb (Amazed at yourself)

There is something that i realized, a thing that i and you may find it occasionally find in daily life. And yes it is ujb. Now what is ujb? Ujb may means when you are amazed at yourself you know? There is a man who wons the championship, and then he became arrogant and talk about himself much. He is amazed at himself even though i think the people around him has forgotten him and he achieved!

But this is dangerous! Because when we amazed at ourself it means that we say, enough myself, you have achieved enough. You think about yourself  in a long time. Oh how great you are as a person. And maybe you amazed at yourself and you get so deluded, but you know what? Everyone may has forgotten or even dont pay any attention to what you are amazed of.  When you are amazed at yourself you think you had achieved enough, but you know what? What you achieved is only a small part of contribution to this world! Indeed to think that you hhas achieved enough will prevent progress because for what should i struggle myself more? I had achieved enough.

And another dangerous thing when you are amazed at yourself is that you will forget all of your mistakes and sins. Well this is dangerous because, if we forget our mistakes and sins we can’t change ourselves to be better you know. Believe me, the feeling of being full of mistakes and sins will lead to humility it leads us to be humble. When you know that we ourselves also full of mistakes, we can receive another person’s critics easily. And in other side what is ujb will gives you? Ujb doesnt give anything good at all! Seriously Ujb will only leads to arrogance, leads us to be in like somekind of illusion, we think about ourselves higher than our reality. For example if a man has a quality of C, and he has an ujb, he thinks that he has A quality! Ujb doesn’t give any good!

So I Ask Allah to guard us from this dangerous illness.

Life

Bismillahirrahmanirrahim

Look my friend, in this life which is only once, lots of get lost. I mean like, from what i’ve seen from the people, is life only limited at watching television? Or is it life is measured by the number of followers you have online, or is it life only hanging out with friends, having fun for the rest of our life? I mean, i get confused as if i dont see any real meaning worth to fight for you know?

There are people who chase money for his entire life, money that one day he will inherit

There are people who chase fame, they want to become famous in their life, they want veryone to know them.

There are also maybe some people who has hobby on collecting things in their life like antic things with history in it.

But at the end of the day, WE ARE NOT HAPPY. You know deep inside, this is not what you want, you know deep inside your soul will never be satisfied with this world. Because deep down, the people who only chase this moment’s pleasure know, that the pleasure that they feel is temporary, it doesn’t last long.

And this is a very beautiful lyrics that can describe my feeling right now, (written by Kamal Saleh, it’s a poem actually)

 

What Are We Doing Here, And Where Are We Gonna Go
It’s like we Just Woke Up One Morning, And Then It’s Welcome To The Show
Don’t Ask Any Questions Just Go With The Flow
Make As Much Money As You Can, And Try Your Best Not To Get Broke
Copy Everything You See On A T. V., From A Hairstyles To The Clothes
And don’t Think To Often, Just Do Exactly As You’re Told
And If You Ever Get Confused, Then Just Turn Towards The Alcohol
You Still Here Thoughts? Then Just Turn Up The Radi-o
As You Learn To Live A Lifestyle Of Drugs, s**, And Rock-n-roll

But In All Honesty, I Just Need To Know
Is There More To The Cycle Than Owing And Getting Owed
Livin And Dyin Just To Leave Behind A Happy Home
And A Whole Lotta Property That Just Somebody Else Is Gonna Own
I Just Really Need To Know Before The Caste Gets Closed
Because I’m Not Willing To Gamble With My Soul, Nor Am I Ready To Take Any Chances
These Are Just Simple Life Questions And M Just Searching For Some Answers
Like What Are We Doing Here? What Is Our Purpose?
How Did We Get Here And Who Made Us So Perfect?
Or What Happens Once We Go, For Is This World Really Worth It?
Questions We don’t Answer, B’coz Apparently We don’t Really Have To.
There’s No Purpose To This Life And Our Existence Its Merely Natural

So i ask you once again, is life and this world, which has been created so perfectly, created this beautifully, even the humankind cannot created a single fly. Is life really worth it only by living it for the sake of pleasure? Or the sake of chasing money?

Screenshot_9

So I may tell you something, indeed we will be bring back to life after our death. We will be asked about what we have done in this world. So is there still time for wasting time and playing around?

Have they not seen that God, Who created the heavens and the earth and was not wearied by their creation, is able to give life to the dead? Surely He has power over everything. (46:33)

Prinsip Islam.

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Bertanyalah seseorang, jika agama Islam ini adalah agama unik, maka dimanakah letak keunikannya?

Maka aku katakan, cobalah wahai saudaraku lihatlah al-quran. Isinya merupakan argumen-argumen dan dalil yang kuat akan monoteisme. Dan diantara yang quran ajarkan pada kami adalah

Berkata dengan Ilmu.

Yah, inilah sebuah manhaj (prinsip )yang agung. Karena dengan berkata dengan ilmu, berarti bahwa seluruh yang disampaikan oleh agama ini ialah seluruh yang dapat dibuktikan oleh akal maupun sains.

Maka jika ada yang mengatakan sesuatu padamu, katakanlah : ” Dimana buktimu?”

Dan mereka (Yahudi dan Nasrani) berkata: “Sekali-kali tidak akan masuk surga kecuali orang-orang (yang beragama) Yahudi atau Nasrani”. Demikian itu (hanya) angan-angan mereka yang kosong belaka. Katakanlah: “Tunjukkanlah bukti kebenaranmu jika kamu adalah orang yang benar”.

Albaqarah ayat 111

Maka inilah Islam, Islam mengajarkan kami untuk selalu mengikuti kebenaran dan yang dibuktikan. Karena ada diantara manusia yang melakukan sesuatu karena hanya sekedar keinginannya sendiri. Tidakkah kau lihat orang-orang musyrikin Mekkah dahulu? Apakah alasan mereka menyembah berhala-berhala yang tidak dapat mendatangkan manfaat maupun bahaya? Mengikuti nenek moyang. Dan diantara manusia ada yang melakukan sesuatu karena hanya ingin mencari kesenangan di dalamnya.

Dan mereka tidak mempunyai sesuatu pengetahuanpun tentang itu. Mereka tidak lain hanyalah mengikuti persangkaan sedang sesungguhnya persangkaan itu tiada berfaedah sedikitpun terhadap kebenaran

Annajm ayat 28

Maka penulis mengajak dirinya sendiri dan pembaca untuk selalu memegang teguh prinsip ini. Semoga Allah melindungi kita dari mengikuti prasangka bukannya kebenaran.

Arrogance

There is something that most of has, yes it is arrogance. But do you know the scary thing about this thing is? That most of the arrogance people dont notice it!

It is the thing that split people up, it is the thing that prevent progress in life. Yes, i think arrogance have lots of negative effects in life. (We ask Allah to save us from this arrogancy)

Why i say that arrogancy can have negative effects?

1. Delusion

You think that you progress in life, after you achieve certain achievement you feel that you already did a really really amazing thing. And then, you start comparing yourself to others, now here the arrogancy starts. You realize that oh everyone arent achieving as you did. You get deluded, amazed at yourself. After that, you start to stop working for achievment thinking that you’ve done enough.

But do you know? When you are looking down at others, actually other people have some achievement too. You just dont know yet, and yes you will be embarassed when you see the people you’ved looked down had achieved something.

2. Prevent progress in life

Yes, when you are being arrogance. You feel that only you who has the best opinion. Only you that can do that job. You dont believe in other’s capability to do things. You start judging other people’s life.

“Oh look, he wastes his time” “Oh look she doesnt wear her scarf” “Oh look these bunch of people dont work hard like i always did”

So prejudices fill your own mind!You dont find any kinds in other person! Oh it’s only you who is right, others are wrong. Indeed this is a plain error.

Now there is a person like this, he starts busy himself with the mistakes of other, but he forgets his own mistakes. When he began always thinking and judging others, he forgot that there is something that has more right to be judged and evaluated : his own self!!!!! So when he doesnt start evaluating himself, he stops to grow naudzubillah.

What are the signs of arrogance?

1. He feels that only he that is right

2. He likes to cut other people conversation. This is because he doesnt any value in other’s words.

3. He doesnt give any value to other’s opinion. He thinks that his opinion is always the best.

4. Looking down at others.

So our prophet shallallahu alaihi wa sallam has told us the right thing. Arrogance is denying the truth and looking down at other people. I ask Allah to guard us from this evil thing, may Allah guide me and all of muslimiin.

A poem i made

Hi guys this is one of the poem that i tried to make, though i dont know any grammatical rule of poetry in arabic.

كن مع الله ولا تبالي

Be with Allah and do not care

ولو طال عليك ظلام الليالي

Eventhough the darkness of night longens unto you

اليوم سجن وغدا جنة العالي

Today is prison but tomorrow is high heaven

فكل مصيبة لا تدوم

So that every accidents dont stay

والاحيان تجري سريع البال

And the moments flow in a fast pace

Procrastination

You now you live in this world once. You know there might be no tomorrow. You know you gotta change. But you’re scared. You procrastinate. I dont understand why people procrastinate because you srriously they are wasting their time! I love the saying of Ibnu Umar regarding this.

” If you are in the morning, don’t wait the evening”. If you are in the evening don’t wait the morning”

Because , how many people who got up to the morning but he didn’t meet the evening that day. And how many people who got to the evening but didn’t survive to the morning. Imagine for example the one who got crashed in the road. He happily walked out of his house into his car, singing the songs during the trip, calling his partnet when he is driving, say that he is 20 years old, in the trip he tought that he has all the time in the world, he think he might be up to 60. But NO! a truck crashed his car along with his body!!!

Right, that man got up to morning, but didn’t survive to the evening. We seek the unsure wealth yet we forget that death is what we are running from all along our lives! Have you think once, the moment when angel of death stares at you؟

Now if you’re reading this, there’s still time. Fix yourself and fight!!

The Tongue

One of the greatest ni’mah Allah gave to mankind is the tongue. I mean like i just realized this and it’s really amazing you know. Imagine that 6 Billion people in this earth is have no tongue, how would they communicate? How would they share their ideas one and another? So we really need to be grateful of this ni’mah. Imagine yourself if you suddenly can’t speak!

Now if we look in the Qur’an Allah explained this huge ni’mah in one of his ayah.

عَلَّمَهُ الْبَيَانَ [٥٥:٤]

He has taught him speech. (Ar-Rahmah:3)

But from my view, sometimes we get delluted by this ni’mah and use it for the things that Allah forbid it. They use it on backbite, slander, speaking without knowledge. They take it as easy things. But we shoud remember that every single of our words are recorded! We should remember that every word that we pour from our mouth regarding other people will be asked by Allah ta’ala. Isn’t it a man with his words can enter Islam? Or the opposite he can be a murtad wal iyyadzu billah. Isn’t it a man can be married only from his word that he said? So this thing is not a small things my brother.

And the things that I saw in my life also, that we sometimes speak as if we have to speak all the time, haha. You know that awkward moment when there is nothing in the air except silence? You are looking for words to speak but you can’t find it? Sometimes you just need to be silence my brother. Try to be silent much, or if you can , try to fast at Monday and Thursday as the Sunnah of the Prophet Shallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam and do not talk much in that day. You will find peace. You will find rest.

So the important thing is our brother, that we should keep to guard our tongue. It is better to be silent and not talk much rather than talking much and make lots of sins in our saying. But it doesn’t mean we have to be silent all the time, no. Just keep in the middle between silent and talking too much.

And remember this hadeeth from the Prophet Shallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam, a very beautiful hadeeth.

Abû Hurayrah relates that Allah’s Messenger (peace be upon him) said: “Whoever believes in Allah and the Last Day should speak a good word or remain silent. And whoever believes in Allah and the Last Day should show hospitality to his neighbor. And whoever believes in Allah and the Last Day should show hospitality to his guest.” [ Sahîh al-Bukhârî and Sahîh Muslim ]
