Determination to Allah
Words of Wisdom
Go to Allah right the way with all of your heart.
Hang on His blessing until the world come out from your heart.
Because Allah is the most powerful,
And He owns this entire world in His hand.
Ask Him to make your heart clean from everything but Allah.
For your heart to be full of faith and Ma’rifat to Him.
Wish for Allah to give you patient and soften your heart.
So you can give all of your self and obedience to Him alone.
And ask Him to make your heart humble in front of Him.
"Understanding shareeah with the brain without heart will never take you to Allah.
Not even one step!
Because your journey to Allah is a journey of the 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”

The Fastest Way to Get Close With Allah
Truly, human desire is like climbing a big, giant and steep mountain. It's obstructing, confining and closing human heart from Allah. If we follow our desire more than we follow the words of Allah, 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 does only to fulfill our desire, will become our negligence to Allah. It caused us to forget about ourselves, to forget about our mission and vision, also to 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 wants to go to Allah; but to conquer that big, tall and steep mountain which full of thorny bushes. The higher we climb, more threat we will find along the way. And if our goal is not strong enough, we will weaken and destroy.
But if we are able to move on and continue on our journey, then behind all those troubles; soon, we will find the bright light as guidance from Allah, to light up our way to him. Then we will see and realize that along the way we had passed through, there are signs everywhere to tell us about dangerous places that we should avoid. And there are also Oases located here and there, for us to take a rest everytime we need to, before able to 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 its obstacles is Dzikrullah (dzikir to Allah).
The energy to light the lamp of faith is 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, never give up the dream and never give up the will!
