Interested in jotting down the lessons I've got yesterday night.Syukran to ukhti Uswah and Arifah for being tolerant towards my request of attending a ta'dib lecture in MWHS.
What was it all about?
By ustaz Hasri Hassan,he brought up an interesting issue of who is the 'ibadur Rahman stated in chapter 25 verses 63.To begin with,only 5 characters of 'ibadur Rahman had he discussed.
In verse 63: 'And the servants of Allah Most Gracious are those who walk on the Earth in humility,and when the ignorant adress them they say,'Peace!'
There were 2 points can be extracted here.
An 'Ibadur Rahman is a tawadhu' person.Means he possess such a very humble characters,away from arrogance.Down-to-earth,reflecting all his success,all his earnings back to His Lord,Allah SWT.When being praised,he would rather say 'Alhamdulillah' than boasting about himself.
A very easy-to-forgive person.Despite being insulted or teased,he would rather smile,would not letting any rude and harsh words coming from his mouth just to give a payback on others who is being rude to him and without being asked,he willingly just forgives others easily.
In verse 64:'Those who spend the night in adoration of their Lord prostrate and standing'
An 'Ibadur Rahman makes full use of the night to perform tahajjud prayer or qiamullail.
In verses 65 to 66:'Those who say;"Our Lord,avert from us the Wrath of Hell for its Wrath is indeed an affliction grievious,Evil indeed is it as an abode,and as a place to rest in'
An 'Ibadur Rahman is afraid of Allah's Hell.This can be figuratively speaking he is a very cautious person in his deeds.He will always consider his actions based on Allah's gaze and keeps asking himself 'did Allah likes this or not'?.And this led to a conclusion that an 'Ibadur Rahman must be one with taqwa as Caliph 'Umar Al-Faruq once said that,
'taqwa is like you are walking on the thorns.you have to walk with cautions so that you won't end up being hurt by them'
In verse 67:'Those who when they spend are not extravagant and not niggardly but hold a just (balances) between those (extremes)'
An 'Ibadur Rahman is one whom possess wealth but always lavish in his aids towards others in need,spending his wealth only on good purposes because of Allah.Is not tight-fisted to give the needy.
