KISAH KEAJAIBAN SURAT YASIN

KISAH KEAJAIBAN AYAT KURSI

Muslimahzone.com – Ini kisah nyata dari Amerika (US) sekitar tahun 2006. Pengalaman nyata seorang muslimah asal Asia yang mengenakan jilbab.
Suatu hari wanita ini berjalan pulang dari bekerja dan agak kemalaman . Suasana jalan setapak sepi . Ia melewati jalan pintas.

Di ujung jalan pintas itu, dia melihat ada sosok pria Kaukasian. Ia menyangka pria itu seorang warga Amerika . Tapi perasaan wanita ini agak was-was karena sekilas raut pria itu agak mencurigakan seolah ingin mengganggunya.

Dia berusaha tetap tenang dan membaca kalimah Allah. Kemudian dia lanjutkan dengan terus membaca Ayat Kursi berulang-ulang seraya sungguh-sungguh memohon perlindungan Allah swt. Meski tidak mempercepat langkahnya, ketika ia melintas di depan pria berkulit putih itu, ia tetap berdoa. Sekilas ia melirik ke arah pria itu. Orang itu asik dengan rokoknya, dan seolah tidak mempedulikannya.

Keesokan harinya , wanita itu melihat berita kriminal, seorang wanita melintas di jalan yang sama dengan jalan yang ia lintasi semalam. Dan wanita itu melaporkan pelecehan seksual yang dialaminya di lorong gelap itu. Karena begitu ketakutan, ia tidak melihat jelas pelaku yang katanya sudah berada di lorong itu ketika perempuan korban ini melintas jalan pintas tersebut.

Hati muslimah ini pun tergerak karena wanita tadi melintas jalan pintas itu hanya beberapa menit setelah ia melintas di sana. Dalam berita itu dikabarkan wanita itu tidak bisa mengidentifikasi pelaku dari kotak kaca, dari beberapa orang yang dicurigai polisi.

Muslimah ini pun memberanikan diri datang ke kantor polisi, dan memberitahukan bahwa rasanya ia bisa mengenali sosok pelaku pelecehan kepada wanita tersebut, karena ia menggunakan jalan yang sama sesaat sebelum wanita tadi melintas.

Melalui kamera rahasia, akhirnya muslimah ini pun bisa menunjuk salah seorang yang diduga sebagai pelaku. Iia yakin bahwa pelakunya adalah pria yang ada di lorong itu dan mengacuhkannya sambil terus merokok .

Melalui interogasi polisi akhirnya orang yang diyakini oleh muslimah tadi mengakui perbuatannyaa. Tergerak oleh rasa ingin tahu, muslimah ini menemui pelaku tadi dan didampingi oleh polisi.

Muslimah : “Apa Anda melihat saya? Saya juga melewati jalan itu beberapa menit sebelum wanita yang kauperkosa itu? Mengapa Anda hanya menggangunya tapi tidak mengganggu saya? Mengapa Anda tidak berbuat apa-apa padahal waktu itu saya sendirian?”

Penjahat : “Tentu saja saya melihatmu malam tadi. Anda berada di sana malam tadi beberapa menit sebelum wanita itu. Saya tidak berani mengganggu Anda. Aku melihat ada dua orang besar di belakang Anda pada waktu itu. Satu di sisi kiri dan satu di sisi kanan Anda.”

Muslimah itu tidak bisa melanjutkan kata-katanya. Hatinya penuh syukur dan terus mengucap syukur. Dengkulnya bergetar mendengar penjelasan pelaku kejahatan itu, ia langsung menyudahi interview itu dan minta diantar keluar dari ruang itu oleh polisi.

***

Semua surat dalam al-Qur’an adalah surat yang agung dan mulia. Demikian juga seluruh ayat yang dikandungnya. Namun, Allah Subhanahu wa ta’ala dengan kehendak dan kebijaksanaanNya menjadikan sebagian surat dan ayat lebih agung dari sebagian yang lain.

Syaikh Umar Sulaiman Al Asyqar berkata, ”Yang paling baik digunakan untuk melawan jin yang masuk ke dalam tubuh manusia adalah dzikrullah (dzikir kepada Allah) dan bacaan Al Qur`an. Dan yang paling besar dari itu ialah bacaan ayat kursi, karena sesungguhnya orang yang membacanya akan selalu dijaga oleh penjaga dari Allah, dan ia tidak akan didekati oleh setan sampai Subuh, sebagaimana telah shahih hadits tentang itu”. [Alamul Jin Wasy Syayathin, hlm. 180, karya Syaikh Umar Sulaiman Al Asyqar, Penerbit Darun Nafais].

Story, Because you’re muslim

“There was a Brother in Glasgow who became ill and was hospitalized. He was admitted for three days and on the fourth day the attendant nurse said, “Marry me”.
He [the brother in Glasgow] asked, “Why? I am a Muslim, you and I cannot become companions.”
She said, “I will become Muslim”.
“What’s the reason?” it was asked.
She said, “In all my time that I have served in hospitals, except you, I have never seen a man lower his gaze in front of a woman. In my life you are the first person who lowers his gaze when seeing a woman. I come, and you close your eyes. Such great modesty can be taught by none other than a true religion.”
The protection of one’s gaze entered Islam in her. She testified to the Oneness of Allah (Subhanahu wa Ta’ala) and became a Muslim. They both got married. By now, the same woman was and is the means of bringing so many other girls and women into Islam.[Subhan Allah!!]
In a Hadith, the Prophet Muhammad (peace & blessings of Allah be upon him) is reported as having said: “And the eyes commit zina (adultery). Their zina is gazing.”
The Prophet Muhammad (peace & blessings of Allah be upon him) commanded: “Ali! Do not look once after another, for the first look is for you (since it happens accidentally) while the second is against you.”

Story of the day

INTERESTING REAL STORY, PLZ READ IT
“I felt something was wrong”
This is the sentence that kept repeating in my head over and over again since I heard it from my friend.
It was the answer she gave me that day when I asked her:
”why did you stop posting and commenting in our facebook group?”
At that moment she just replied:
“I felt something was wrong! I was wondering why it is happening to me!
I was asking myself : how can I be too shy to look directly into the eyes of any of my male classmates and lower my gaze in front of him….but then, on this mixed group, I talk to him normally as if he is a closed friend of mine?! We exchange comments and likes …we even crossed the limits and started to crack jokes and be intimate to one another many times. There, I am not able to control myself as I am spontaneous in nature!

Little by little, I started to feel that they (my male classmates) get used to the way I deal with them. I started to feel that there is a contradiction between:
my image in university, in one hand, where I am walking lowering my gaze, wearing my full Hijab and don’t talk to anyone of them except with Hayaa and if there is a real necessity to do so,
And between my image in internet in that group, in another hand, where I deal with them as if they were close friends and cross limits by joking and laughing with them.
So, when one of the sisters pointed out this subject and waked me up, I was wondering why no one of my female friends in the group has never attracted my attention to that before?!

Then, I found out the answer to my questions: no one attracted my attention to this subject before because they never considered it (mixing with our male classmates and being intimate with them) something wrong.
For them, it is totally the opposite, they like it!
They would say that “we are all classmates”… “it is normal that we deal with each other” …. “We are all respectful”, etc …
At that point, I became so confused!! Who is wrong and who is right?! By being in this group, should I be “open-minded” and “cool” or should I put limits in my relationship with my male classmates?!
If I put limits between me and them, would I be “extremist” or would I be on the right path?!

To find an answer for my questions, I decided to go back to my ”Book of Instructions ” (Qur’an) to which I always go back whenever I feel I am going astray.
And I found what I was looking to in Ayah 32 of Surat Al Ahzab:”be not soft in speech, lest he in whose heart is a disease (of hypocrisy, or evil desire for adultery, etc.) should be moved with desire”
and also Ayah 21 from Surat An Nour :”do not follow the steps of shaitan”.
On that basis, I reconsidered my actions… I realized that I don’t have to be friendly to all people just because I have a social personality. I also realized that no men should be intimate with me especially that we are young. Shaytaan deceives people and opens the way that leads them to sin. He mixes things that are acceptable with things that are not acceptable, and mixes truth with falsehood. He comes to each person through something that is suited to them.
Personally, I witnessed many situations where someone gets attached to an “internet personality”.
So, as I am so spontaneous and I can neither control my comments nor leave facebook definitely, I decided to leave that mixed group and focus on my facebook page to which I add only my sisters.
There we can joke, laugh and talk freely! And I prayed that Allah protects me from the evil of Fitnah, keeps me away from it and draws me closer to what pleases HIM.

After taking that decision, I became so relieved! All praises to Allah because I won the battle against my Nafs and slam the door in the face of shaytan, a door of fitnah which was wide open, just to please my Lord.
From that day, I became more aware of any comment I write. I check first to whom and what I write before posting it and check if it is really necessary to write it or not.
from now on, I deal with the brothers on facebook with my real personality not my facebooker personality!
Good company was the real strength which helped me to stop following that way and Duaa was my real weapon!
