5 Ramadhan 1431

Ramadhan has come again, and there are so many things to do in just 29 days, and blogging is very low in the list, if any. at least that was what i planned, but it has to change. why? because i noticed since the start of Ramadhan, the activities in total at Facebook and Twitter only decline slightly, which makes me wonder: don’t they have more important things to do on this holy Ramadhan, and it sadden me more when there are complains like ‘don’t know what to do’ or ‘bored’. i mean, WHAT?! this is RAMADHAN, man, how can anyone becomes bored or not knowing what to do??!!

as i grieve upon this fact, something struck me, maybe the reason that people still cannot really appreciate Ramadhan is because a part of the people who was doing dakwah before stop sending the message because they want to concentrate on their ibadah (like what i planned initially!), so those who are still drowned in worldly pleasures during the month of Ramadhan receive less reminders continue as they are before the coming of this month.

realizing this, Allah has given me the idea of spreading reminders that i hope can benefit at least the 569 friends that i have in facebook, 19 followers in twitter and a hundreds of contacts at my YM. the idea is to share the beautiful ayah (not verse, verses are related to poetry, which the alQuran is not. ayah is more appropriate, not only that its the original term used by the Muslims of the past, it also means ‘signs of Allah’s greatness’ which what alQuran is) of alQuran with its translation that in my opinion can benefit others (all ayah of the alQuran is beneficial to those who believe, but if i put all the ayahs, it would defeat the purpose of catching people attention and encourage them to read, so just a part of it will suffice insyaAllah for now)

i will try to post the ayahs everyday, from 25 pages of the alQuran (mushaf Othmani) daily (since i start late, i need to go more than 1 juzu’ ( 20 pages) per day so that i can cover the whole alQuran by the end of the month, insyaAllah. i cannot promise that i can do this everyday, but i will try my best. may Allah help me and accept this little effort of dakwah so that people can appreciate alQuran, especially on this month.

English: And convey good news to those who believe and do good deeds, that they shall have gardens in which rivers flow; whenever they shall be given a portion of the fruit thereof, they shall say: This is what was given to us before; and they shall be given the like of it, and they shall have pure mates in them, and in them, they shall abide.

PATIENCE & PRAYER

Padahal diantara batu-batu itu sungguh ada yang mengalir sungai-sungai dari padanya dan diantaranya sungguh ada yang terbelah lalu keluarlah mata air dari padanya dan diantaranya sungguh ada yang meluncur jatuh, karena takut kepada Allah. Dan Allah sekali-sekali tidak lengah dari apa yang kamu kerjakan.

English: Then your hearts hardened after that, so that they were like rocks, rather worse in hardness; and surely there are some rocks from which streams burst forth, and surely there are some of them which split asunder so water issues out of them, and surely there are some of them which fall down for fear of Allah, and Allah is not at all heedless of what you do.

IMAN

ALLAH’S GREATNESS

[2:164] Sesungguhnya dalam penciptaan langit dan bumi, silih bergantinya malam dan siang, bahtera yang berlayar di laut membawa apa yang berguna bagi manusia, dan apa yang Allah turunkan dari langit berupa air, lalu dengan air itu Dia hidupkan bumi sesudah mati (kering)-nya dan Dia sebarkan di bumi itu segala jenis hewan, dan pengisaran angin dan awan yang dikendalikan antara langit dan bumi; sungguh (terdapat) tanda-tanda (keesaan dan kebesaran Allah) bagi kaum yang memikirkan.

English: Most surely in the creation of the heavens and the earth and the alternation of the night and the day, and the ships that run in the sea with that which profits men, and the water that Allah sends down from the cloud, then gives life with it to the earth after its death and spreads in it all (kinds of) animals, and the changing of the winds and the clouds made subservient between the heaven and the earth, there are signs for a people who understand.

LOVE & IMAN

[2:165] Dan diantara manusia ada orang-orang yang menyembah tandingan-tandingan selain Allah; mereka mencintainya sebagaimana mereka mencintai Allah. Adapun orang-orang yang beriman amat sangat cintanya kepada Allah. Dan jika seandainya orang-orang yang berbuat zalim itu106 mengetahui ketika mereka melihat siksa (pada hari kiamat), bahwa kekuatan itu kepunyaan Allah semuanya, dan bahwa Allah amat berat siksaan-Nya (niscaya mereka menyesal).

English: And there are some among men who take for themselves objects of worship besides Allah, whom they love as they love Allah, and those who believe are stronger in love for Allah and O, that those who are unjust had seen, when they see the chastisement, that the power is wholly Allah’s and that Allah is severe in requiting (evil).

FOOD & SYAITAN

[2:168] Hai sekalian manusia, makanlah yang halal lagi baik dari apa yang terdapat di bumi, dan janganlah kamu mengikuti langkah-langkah syaitan; karena sesungguhnya syaitan itu adalah musuh yang nyata bagimu.

English: O men! eat the lawful and good things out of what is in the earth, and do not follow the footsteps of the Shaitan; surely he is your open enemy.

[2:169] Sesungguhnya syaitan itu hanya menyuruh kamu berbuat jahat dan keji, dan mengatakan terhadap Allah apa yang tidak kamu ketahui.

English: He only enjoins you evil and indecency, and that you may speak against Allah what you do not know.

*the numbers at the start of every ayah is [the number of surah:ayah]. example: [2:157] means it is the 157th ayah of the second surah of the alQuran which is alBaqarah. and the small super scripted numbers in green are the link to explanation of a specific word or ayah, can be seen from Qur’an Search Engine SE
