puisi untuk muslimah

Assalamualaikum. Kali ini aku kongsikan dengan kalian sebuah cerpen/puisi berkaitan wanita tetapi coretan ini bukanlah milikku tetapi milik seorang muslimah dari Indonesia iaitu Hajjah Mariah Ulfa, seorang qari’ah yang terkenal di tanah seberang. Banyak puisi pasal wanita yang selalu kita dengar, tapi bagi aku, ini yang terbaik dan benda yang baik itu kan kita kena kongsi...


Ia tidak harus berbakut setera untuk terlihat menawan
ketika busana panjang tanpa pita-pita
mampu menembus kabut pesona zaman
Ia tidak harus mendongakkan kepala untuk menyirat
ketika tunduknya hati dan pandangan
menempatkan diri pada kemuliaan
ia tidak harus berhiaskan intan berlian untuk meraih
ketika cahaya kesabaran akan meluruhkan kilaunya
dan butiran tasbih mulai menghitung nilai akhlaknya
titian menuju ridha-Mu
memang tidak dihiasi mawar, melati dan sedap malam
sekali-kali saja masih tercium harumnya
karena mungkin masih ada terjaga
perilaku dan lisannya
perjalanan ke sana sungguh panjang dan meletihkan
hanya mendung dan pelangi, hanya gelap dan terang
saling berganti menyapanya
Ilahi, tanpa keridhoan itu
bisakah sedekah, sholat dan sujudnya
mengantar diri ke ujung pengembaraan pada-Mu

Kita sering dengar hadis berkaitan wanita solehah itu perhiasan dunia, wanita itu sangat dijaga haknya dalam Islam dan macam-macam lagi. Kita juga sering dengar wanita itu paling senang masuk syurga. Tetapi, kitakah perhiasan dunia itu? Kitakah wanita yang layak dijaga haknya? Dan tahukah kita bahawa wanita itu paling senang juga masuk neraka?

Rasulullah s.a.w. pernah bersabda:

“Empat perkara termasuk dari kebahagiaan, iaitu  wanita (isteri ) yang solehah, tempat tinggal yang luas dan lapang, tetangga yang  soleh, dan tunggangan (kenderaan) yang nyaman. Dan  empat perkara yang merupakan kesengsaraan iaitu  tetangga yang buruk, isteri  yang jelik (tidak solehah ), kenderaan yang tidak nyaman, dan tempat tinggal yang sempit.” (Hadis Riwayat  Ibnu Hibban dalam Al-Mawarid hal. 302, disahihkan Asy-Syaikh Muqbil dalam Al-Jami’ush Shahih, 3/57 dan Asy-Syaikh Albani dalam Silsilah Al-Ahadits Ash-Shahihah no. 282).

Happy Women’s Day

The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides. True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It’s the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows and the beauty of a woman only grows with passing years.’  -Audrey Hepburn-

Talking about women, us girls always have someone to gush about. I’m sure this applies to the guys too.

‘She’s so pretty, look at her eyes’.
‘I want to have a body like hers’
‘Look at her skin, it’s so flawless, she’s so blessed’            
‘She’s pretty and kind. She’s near perfect’
‘Look at her clothes! They are to-die-for’

On the other side, we also tend to have someone to look up to. Be it our beloved mother, a supermodel, a celebrity, a politician, or anyone really, there’s always a person who we regard as a role model.

But, do you know who Allah says, is the greatest woman in the universe?


And [mention] when the angels said, "O Mary, indeed Allah has chosen you and purified you and chosen you above the women of the worlds. (3:42)

Yes! She is Mary, the mother of Jesus (Isa).  She also has a whole chapter in the Quran to her name, chapter 19 to be exact. She is the daughter of Imran, who is among those families Allah considers as above all mankind. (3:33)

So, in conjunction with women’s day, lets take a glimpse at the life of the best women in the universe and take a thing or two that we could learn from.

1) Preserve your Iman and seek refuge only from Allah.

‘And she took, in seclusion from them, a screen. Then We sent to her Our Angel, and he represented himself to her as a well-proportioned man. She said, "Indeed, I seek refuge in the Most Merciful from you, [so leave me], if you should be fearing of Allah." (19:17-18)

Here, when Mary found herself approached by a man with well-defined proportions and features, she immediately prayed to Allah for protection.
Ask ourselves if we would have been able to do the same as Mary did? Would we have asked Allah for protection or would we instead fawn upon the handsome well-proportioned lad? Or perhaps we’d steal a glance or two before doing anything. Perhaps we should do a self-reflection here, you and me. 

2) Allah has powers well beyond our reach.

 When Allah told her she was going to have a son, she thought is was impossible. She’s never been touched before, so how is it possible?
So Allah said:

He said, "Thus [it will be]; your Lord says, 'It is easy for Me, and We will make him a sign to the people and a mercy from Us. And it is a matter [already] decreed.' "(19:21)

Allah emphasizes that nothing is impossible for Him. He is the Al-Mighty. His powers are well beyond our reach. What’s impossible for us isn’t the same for Him.
The first thing we can relate to from this is that in real life, I’m sure we’ve faced a time when everything seemed so out of reached. Probably a teacher too strict to let you pass an exam, someone who’s so hard to please, or a situation too much too bear. And probably it is at that moment you think to yourself, ‘I’ll never get over this’, ‘It’s over’. But bear in mind, Allah holds the key to everything. He controls everything and He knows what’s best for you, so pray to Him, ask Him for help and guidance, and I’m sure He will reach out to you in ways you never would imagine. Trust me; never look down on the power of a prayer. 

As we all know, the story goes that as Mary grew up, she became pregnant and had Jesus when she was a virgin. And according to science nowadays, one ovum by itself can’t possibly make a baby.  It takes two to tangle. So people talked and talked about her. ‘How can she have a baby?’ Isn’t she supposed to be a virgin?’ *whisper* *whisper* (This is what I imagine the dialogue is like). They gossiped about her. And I am sure it must’ve hurt. Gossiping about others might seem fun, but to be the subject of it itself, is a different story. Furthermore, if what is being said is untrue, than, it is now a fitna, and that is a huge sin, my friend!

4) Complaining isn’t a totally bad attribute. 

‘And the pains of childbirth drove her to the trunk of a palm tree. She said, "Oh, I wish I had died before this and was in oblivion, forgotten." (19:23)

Complaining. Yes, even Mary, who is the greatest women ever, moaned when she was in pain. I believe this is to show that it’s natural for us, for human beings, to lament in times of difficulties. If something doesn’t satisfy our need, when we’re in pain or when facing hardships, we make a lot of fuss about it.  However, we shouldn’t just laze back, whine, grumble, and complain without trying to make amends. We shouldn’t wait while doing nothing. Go and pray. Talk to Him, pour out your feelings, and pray a lot to Allah because only He holds the definite remedy. 

5) Every tiny-miny effort counts!

As if she wasn’t already having a hard enough time; being pregnant though still a virgin and being the center of gossiping, she was also in extreme labor pain. However, instead of giving her instant relief, Allah told her to stand up, go to the date tree, shake it until the fruit falls, and eat the fruit.
Now, what can we learn from this? That He purposely wanted to torture Mary? NO!  Then, what hidden lesson does Allah want to tell us?

 One word. 


Yes, effort matters a lot to Allah.  He could just make things happen for us; we could just laze around but still earn money. But remember, the ticket to heaven is very expensive, and it requires effort to earn it. Implying this to our life, don’t give up when you encounter an obstacle. When you don’t get good grades even when you’ve tried your best, don’t be sad and think that your world has fallen apart. Instead lift your head high, and remember that all those efforts you made, even the tiniest one, is seen and rewarded by Allah.
All in all, ladies and gentlemen, a perfect figure or an outstanding look doesn’t define beauty. Long eyelashes, perfect hair, porcelain skin doesn’t either. Let’s learn from Mary, she was a great figure, and Allah valued her highly if not the highest. She was strong inside and out, a true believer, loved her child unconditionally, a great mother, and an awesome daughter. That, I believe, makes her beautiful!  She trusted Allah, and in return Allah empowered baby Jesus with the power of speech to stand up for his mother.  Allah also praised Mary in the Quran,

And [the example of] Mary, the daughter of 'Imran, who guarded her chastity, so We blew into [her garment] through Our angel, and she believed in the words of her Lord and His scriptures and was of the devoutly obedient. (66:12)

and He gave Mary as an great example for us, who she was indeed, a true believer J

Let’s try to instill some of her values to us, shall we? :)

Baru nak mula?JOM!

Pejam celik, pejam celik,hari ini sudah pun 1 Mac 2014. Sedar tak sedar kini masing-masing sudah pun memulakan semester baru,(spring semester).Seperti yang semua orang tahu, sememangnya setiap kali semester baru memang menuntut semangat adiwira yang berkobar-kobar dalam diri setiap manusia yang bergelar pelajar.

‘Eh, kenapa pulak? Merepek je la kau ni’

Hei kakak-kakak dan abang-abang, jangan buat-buat lupa ye. There’s something big waiting for you at the end of it.Yep, that’s right.Examinations.And loads of them.

Sila bawa bertenang...Sediakan secawan kopi panas berserta buku nota dan pen kerana saya akan memberi tips-tips supaya anda tidak burn the midnight oil disaat-saat akhir kelak.

‘aaaapiiiiraaah. Macam la kau tu best student nak bagi tips2 bagai dekat kami’
Ya, memang saya bukan best student pun, tapi marilah kita beramai-ramai usaha untuk menjadi salah seorang best student. Kalau bukan di universiti, mungkin di akhirat kelak. Sebab Allah tak kesah pun dengan result apa yang kita dapat, yang penting usaha.Kan?Senyum sambil angkat-angkat kening. Eheh.

Anda sudah bersedia?Jika sudah,tarik nafas dan sebutkan,‘aye aye captain!’ dengan penuh bersemangat.Bagus.

Pertama-tama sekali, konsisten is the key. Istiqamah. 
Apa pun terma yang digunakan, anda faham maksud saya,bukan?Cuba anda fikirkan sejenak, pernah tidak anda mengalami situasi dimana anda cukup bersemangat membuat jadual belajar untuk setiap hari,tetapi akhirnya jadual entah kemana,dan anda juga entah dimana. Dan tiba-tiba peperiksaan pada keesokan harinya.
Terjun gaung.

Sudah tentu anda cukup mual dengan situasi sedemikian bukan?Oleh itu,di saat ini,waktu ini, tetapkan minda anda supaya terus fokus dan akan berdisiplin dalam mengikuti jadual yang anda telah tetapkan.

Yang kedua kali, amalkan prinsip 3P.
Pause, Prioritise, Pergi!

Pause : Setiap kali anda seakan-akan di awangan, lekas sentap kembali diri anda ke alam realiti.Jangan biarkan setiap perkara yang sedang anda lakukan itu terus mengawal diri anda.Remember, you and only you have the full control of yourself.

Prioritise :Ingat kembali tujuan anda berada dimana jua anda berada sekarang. Jika anda ditaja oleh JPA mahupun MARA, sudah tentu anda menggalas misi yang besar, iaitu untuk pulang dengan membawa segulung ijazah,bukan?Namun, perlu juga diingatkan bahawa dalam kita mengutamakan pembelajaran, sudah tentu kita perlu korbankan sesuatu, contohnya, masa lapang untuk menonton drama-drama Melayu. Oh tidaaak! Tapi, anda perlu ingat bahawa anda memegang amanah yang teramat besar daripada rakyat Malaysia. So, repeat after me people, prioritise, prioritise, prioritise!!!

Pergi! : Eh, ni nak suruhpergi kemana pulak ni. Haaa, bukan begitu, pergi! Bermaksud ‘execute’ bak kata mat salih. Pergi laksanakan misi anda. Pergi berjuang menghadap buku-buku yang tebalnya tak usah dicerita. Pergi korbankan masa rehat anda demi kemaslahatan masa depan. You get what I mean?

Yang ketiga kali, jangan sesekali mengabaikan kedua orang tua anda walau sesibuk mana pun anda.Ingat, keredhaan Allah terletak pada keredhaan kedua ibubapa kita. Dan doa ibubapa merupakan senjata paling ampuh dalam kita hendak menempuh pancaroba kehidupan mahupun cabaran peperiksaan. Jangan lupa untuk bertanya khabar kepada orang tua kita, paling-paling pun seminggu sekali. Itu yang paling minima okay. kalau rajin, hari-hari pun tiada masalah. Dapat pahala lagi tau.

Walauapa pun, jangan lupa untuk meletakkann pergantungan yang super maksima tinggi kepada Pencipta kita. Usaha kita hanyalah ikhtiar, Dia jualah yang memberi kata putus. Yakinlah dan teruskan usahamu. Teruskan berlari hingga kedua belah kakimu berada disyurga.

Faizaazamtafatawakkalala Allah.
‘Apabila kamu telah berazam,maka bertawakallah kepada Allah’

With that, I wish you guys the best of luck dan semoga kita sama-sama saling mengingatkan sepanjang semester ini! Bersusahlah sekarang demi mencapai kerehatan disyurga kelak. ^^
