28 Ramadan 1431

“Start a new leaf, step ahead, let bygone be bygone, look for the bright in your future ” I murmured myself as I step outside my house early that morning, having this pleasant atmosphere around me really makes me in content and somewhat inspirit in and all.

Something exalt in my mind at that moment,

O you men! It is you that have need of Allah. But Allah is the One Free of all wants, worthy of all praise.”(Al-Fathir: 15)

From rising up in the morning until I closed my eyes in the night, it is all about Allah’s willing me to do. And every strength that he provides for His servant is all about worshipping Him only. Can you imagine living a whole day with His blessing? How miraculous!

Let us make a reflection from our past, what we usually done in our daily,*particularly right when we’re having our school’s day*,have you ever realized the daily routines we’re occupying in being a students is so much organized itself*talking about ones who live in a boarding school*

Our life have been scheduled perfectly from waking up early in the morning, having classes attending until noon, playing football in the evening*for boys*or washing their clothes, preparation class in the night until closing the light at midnight to sleep. And all of that happen in only one condition, having THE RULES.

The formula is obvious, follow the rules and you’ll be freed! Nothing to worry about, no punishment waiting, no detention after class, no scolding in the hall and no hurt feelings. Eventually, you will felt that school is the best place to study in.

And that is all about the manmade rules, what about the rules that has been made by Allah, our Creator?Have we considered following it obediently?

If so, why we’re still didn’t felt the satisfaction in every thing we do?

Let us make a checklist out of it,

“He merges Night into Day, and he merges Day into Night, and he has subjected the sun and the moon (to his Law): each one runs its course for a term appointed. Such is Allah your Lord: to Him belongs all Dominion. And those whom ye invoke besides Him have not the least power” (Al-Fathir: 13)

#1: Even the universe, which I assume bigger than the human beings, followed as they appointed to, but what have we done during the day and in night? Is it something that Allah appointed us to do?

“O you who believe! Celebrate the praises of Allah, and do this often. And glorify Him morning and evening”(Al-Ahzab: 41-42)

#2: Have we made the effort of remembering Him in every moment? Have we considered starting every of our works by praising His names (Asma Ul-Husna)? Even just simply reciting this; In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful, have we?

“But the bounty of the Lord - rehearse and proclaim!”(Ad-Dhuha: 11)

#3: Have we being grateful enough to have what we had? Is there a creator, other than Allah, to give you sustenance from heaven or earth? And have we been those whom give thanks?

By (the Token of) Time (through the ages), Verily Man is in loss, except such as have Faith, and do righteous deeds, and (join together) in the mutual teaching of Truth, and of Patience and Constancy.“(Al-Asr: 1-3)

#4: Have we made full use of the 24 hours given to us? How about all the exceptions that has been written above, have we done it all?

Allah has warned us with his rules most apparently in this verse;

"Whoever works righteousness benefits his own soul; whoever works evil, it is against his own soul: nor is thy Lord ever unjust (in the least) to His Servants.”(Fussilat: 46)

So what’s more that is important than #5:Follow His rules, and you’ll be saved, because it is obviously written that we will get what we deserved in the end of the time, so ask ourselves, even having punishments in school will ended us with a cold feet, imagine the punishment in the Hereafter? Rather having a cold foot may be we would even felt blistered within our whole body, won’t you agree? Wana’uzubillah!

And so my friends, back to our formula, still remember it? Yes! Follow the rules, and you know what? Do whatever that pleases Him, because;

“The greatest rule of all the rules is simply to please

And that moment you learn to pleases Him, you didn’t have to imagine living a whole day with His blessing, because you’ve already got it!:)

And you tell yourselves at that time; I have only been created to serve the only God, Allah. Eventually, you will felt that this world is the best place to worshipping Him.

Let us renew our faith and work harder in achieving His blessing, done with the checklist? Don’t forget to check your intentions* using the mind zero process*

Something to share with, hope it can be one of our practices in our daily life, ( it really helps in the zero mind process);

“Had we sent down this Qur'an on a mountain, verily, thou wouldst have seen it humble itself and cleave asunder for fear of Allah. Such are the similitude, which we propound to men that they may reflect. Allah is He, than whom there is no other god; who knows (all things) both secret and open; He, Most Gracious, Most Merciful. Allah is He, than Whom there is no other god;- the Sovereign, the Holy One, the Source of Peace (and Perfection), the Guardian of Faith, the Preserver of Safety, the Exalted in Might, the Irresistible, the Supreme: Glory to Allah. (High is He) above the partners they attribute to Him. He is Allah, the Creator, the Evolver, the Bestower of Forms (or Colours). To Him belong the Most Beautiful Names: whatever is in the heavens and on earth, doth declare His Praises and Glory: and He is the Exalted in Might, the Wise.” (Al- Hasyr: 21 – 24)
