Determination to Allah
THE FASTEST WAY TO GET CLOSE WITH ALLAH
"Go to Allah right the way with all of your heart.
Hang on His bless until the world come out from your heart.
Because Allah is the most powerful,
Where He own this entire world in His hand.
Ask Him to make your heart clean from everything but Allah.
For your heart to full of faith and Ma’rifat to Him.
Wish for Allah to give you believe and soften your heart.
To make all of your body with all of your obedient only to Him,
To make your heart humble in front of Him.
Understanding shareeah with brain without heart will never take you to Allah.
Not even one step!
Because your journey to Allah is journey of heart.
The meaning of deed is to do shareeah with all of your body and soul,
And become tawadhu as His servants,
Just because of Allah”
Hujjah Syekh Abdul Qadir Al-Jailani
Truly, human desire is like climbing big, giant and steep mountain, which obstruct, confine and closed human heart from Allah, except for the desire, He already put bless on it. If we follow our desire then as a result; even if Allah stay close with Human more than the closeness of us to the vein in our neck, we not always can feel this closeness. In every behavior that human do only to fulfill our desire will become our negligence to Allah. It caused us forget about ourselves, forget about our mission and vision and forget about Allah as our creators, as the One who gave us life, and will take it again from us later.
"Nay, but that which they have earned is rust upon their hearts " (QS 83:14)
There’s no alternative way for everyone who want to walk to Allah but to conquer that big, tall and steep mountain which full of thorny bushes. More higher we are climb, more threat we will find in all of our way. If our aim not strong enough, we will decline and destroy. But if we able to move on and continue our journey, then behind all those troubles, soon we will find the bright light as guidance from Allah for whoever He want to give it to light up our way to him, and then will see and realize that in all of our way that we already passed through, there are signs everywhere to told us about dangerous places that we should be avoid. And there are also an Oases placed everywhere for us to take a rest before move again. And if we are lucky, we will also find the vehicle to ride and make our journey become easier and faster to reach the goal, to be with Allah.
Greatest and strongest weapon to conquer the mountain of desire with all of it obstacles is Dzikrullah (dzikir to Allah).
The energy to light on the lamp of faith are the oil of ihkbat (the confidence to keep moving on in climbing and conquering the big mountain in front of us to go to Allah without stepping back).
So let’s continue our journey, Dear Brothers and Sisters in Islam. Never give up hope and will!
