  • 1. Towards becoming Muslims - and its challenges. - preliminary reflections Part 2:Ustaz Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail @ Masjid Sultan Annex, Singapore 1st Rabiu thani 1430AH 28 thMarch 2009 2009ZhulkefleeHjIsmail

2. BRIEF RECAP OF THETOPIC COVEREDIN PREVIOUS DISCUSSION 3. Why this topic?

  • O you who have attained to faith! Be conscious of Allah(TAQWA)with a true consciousness, and do not allow death to overtake you unless you are (in state of submission to Allah) in Islam.
  • ( Quran: Aali Imran: 3: 102)

2009ZhulkefleeHjIsmail 4. My reflections:

  • Muslims are warned against being disunited.BEWARE :Beginning of disunity when key Islamic terms are purposely slanted, distorted, alien standards imposed, innovated into Islamic discourse
  • IMPERATIVE QUESTION
  • There is a single common bond- the ropefrom Allah. What is this rope?
  • Imperative for Muslims to re-visit:... how do we learn our Islam?
  • Whom do we seek to learn Islam from?

2009ZhulkefleeHjIsmail 5. THINK ! SERIOUSLY AND IN ALL HONESTY ...

  • Do we study Islam as a subject? Or do we subject ourselves to Islam?
  • Do we simply teach Islamic subjects? Or do we strive to nurture Islamic values to our students? What value?
  • AS MUSLIMS ...
  • AS FOR THOSE WHO ASSUME ROLE AS TEACHERS ON ISLAM .....

2009ZhulkefleeHjIsmail 6. So far, our discussion was regarding: PERSONAL/INDIVIDUALCHALLENGE IN TRAVERSING PATH FROM BEING AMUSLIM TOWARDS BEING ULTIMATELY AMUT-TAQEE2009ZhulkefleeHjIsmail 7. TO CONTINUE2009ZhulkefleeHjIsmail 8.

  • Challenge: From being Muslim to being Mumeen.
  • ( Quran: Al- Ankabut : 29:2-6)

2009ZhulkefleeHjIsmail 9.

  • Challenge: From being Muslim to being Mumeen.
  • Do men think that they will be left alone on saying "We believe" and that they will not be tested?
  • We did test those before them, and Allah will certainly know those who are true from those who are false.
  • ( Quran: Al- Ankabut : 29:2-6)

2009ZhulkefleeHjIsmail 10. Remember .

  • ( Quran: Al- Hujurat: 49: 14-15 )

2009ZhulkefleeHjIsmail 11. Remember .

  • The desert Arabs, say "We believe." Say "Ye have no faith; but ye (only) say `We have submitted our wills to Allah.' for not yet has Faith entered your hearts. But if ye obey Allah and His Messenger, He will not belittle aught oft your deeds: for Allah is Oft-Forgiving Most Merciful.
  • Only those are Believers who have believed in Allah and His Messenger and have never since doubted but have striven with their belongings and their persons in the Cause of Allah: Such are the true (sincere) ones.
  • ( Quran: Al- Hujurat: 49: 14-15 )

2009ZhulkefleeHjIsmail 12. SO, NOT EVERY MUSLIM IS AMUMEEN....WHAT MORE, TO BEING AMUH-SEEN ,MUKHLIS...MUT-TAQEE . THUS HOW HAVE WE LEARNT ISLAM ? WHAT HAS BEEN OUR EDUCATION? HAVE WE LEARNED HOW TO LEARN? 2009ZhulkefleeHjIsmail 13. My reflections:

  • Imam Muhammad ibnu Sirinr.a.said:
  • Verily this is knowledge (contains the rules) of the DEEN (Religion), so look thoroughly into the person from whom you acquire (the knowledge of) your DEEN Religion.
  • NOTE : The difference betweenmalumat( ) andilm( )

2009ZhulkefleeHjIsmail 14.

  • The likeness of those who are entrusted with the Law of Moses, yet apply it not, is as the likeness of the ass (donkey) carrying books. Wretched is the likeness of folk who deny the revelations of Allah. And Allah guides not wrongdoing folk.(Quran: Surah Jumah: 62: 5)
  • NOTE : The difference betweenmalumat( ) andilm( )

2009ZhulkefleeHjIsmail 15. What isilm( )knowledge?

  • Amongst the definitions:
  • ... Knowledge is the arrival ( husul ) of the meaning ( mana ) of a thing or object of knowledge in the soul of the subject; and simultaneously,..... Knowledge is the souls arrival ( wusul ) at the meaning of that thing or the object of knowledge.
  • By meaning ( mana ) is:the recognition of the proper place of anything in a system ...

2009ZhulkefleeHjIsmail 16. What isilm( )knowledge?

  • Thus, perspective of Education in Islam can be defined:
  • ... Recognition and acknowledgement, progressively instilled into man, of the proper places of things in the order of creation, such that it leads to the recognition and acknowledgement of the proper place of God in the order of being and existence.
  • ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  • Quoted from: The Educational Philosophy and Practice ofSyed Muhammad Naquib Al-Attas by Wan Mohd Nor Wan Daud (ISTAC publication).
  • ---------------------------------------------------------------------------

2009ZhulkefleeHjIsmail 17. Reflect:

  • (Quran: al-Hujurat: 49: 1 )

2009ZhulkefleeHjIsmail 18. Reflect:

  • O ye who believe! put not yourselves forward before Allah and His Messenger: but be conscious of Allah: for Allah is He who hears and knows all things.
  • (Quran: al-Hujurat: 49: 1 )

2009ZhulkefleeHjIsmail 19. ISLAM IS NOT A MECHANICAL CONSTRUCT! ( Quran: Anfal: 8: 24 ) 2009ZhulkefleeHjIsmail 20. ISLAM IS NOT A MECHANICAL CONSTRUCT! O ye who believe! Give your response to Allah and His Messenger, when He calleth you to that which will give you life;( Quran: Anfal: 8: 24 ) 2009ZhulkefleeHjIsmail 21. REVISITING OUR BASIC UNDERSTANDING OF ISLAM What is Islam ? What or who are Muslims ? 2009ZhulkefleeHjIsmail 22. OUR BASIC DEVELOPMENT

  • ISLAM = MUSLIM
  • IMAN = MUMEEN
  • IHSAN = MUHSEEN

FROM HADITH OF JIBRAIL A.S. 2009ZhulkefleeHjIsmail 23. ISLAM IS NOT A MECHANICAL CONSTRUCT! ( Quran: Ibrahim: 14: 24-25 ) 2009ZhulkefleeHjIsmail 24. ISLAM IS NOT A MECHANICAL CONSTRUCT! Seest thou not how Allah sets forth a parable? a goodly Word like a goodly tree, whose root is firmly fixed, and its branches (reach) to the heavensIt brings forth its fruit at all times, by the leave of its Lord. So Allah sets forth parables for men, in order that they may receive admonition ;( Quran: Ibrahim: 14: 24-25 ) 2009ZhulkefleeHjIsmail 25. COMPONENTS OF A TREE Roots Sprout Trunk Leaves Layers of Bark Grow towards sunlight & Power to break rocks Fruits 2009ZhulkefleeHjIsmail seed 26.

  • SO THE CHALLENGE IS
  • WHAT KIND OF A TREE HAVE WE BECOME?
  • HOW DEEP IS THE ROOTS?
  • THE TRUNK?
  • THE LEAVES?
  • THE BARK?
  • HOWS YOUR GROWTH?
  • DOES IT BEAR ANY FRUITS?

2009ZhulkefleeHjIsmail 27. Our dua ( Quran : Aali Imran : 3 : 8 ) 2009ZhulkefleeHjIsmail 28.

Our dua ( Quran : al-Furqan: 25: 74 ) 2009ZhulkefleeHjIsmail 30. Our dua Our Lord !
