buhtan

The Prophet, peace be upon him, defined gossip as mentioning one’s Muslim brother with what he hates.

The Prophet was asked, “What if that thing I mentioned was something truthful about him?”
The Prophet said, “If it was in him, then you have committed gossip (ghibah), and if it was not in him, then you have committed buhtaan,” which is a sin more enormous than gossip.

NOT SO GROSS NATIONAL HAPPINESS

03 Nov by Luke

Sometime back in the 1970s, the tiny Buddhist kingdom of Bhutan decided to replace their Gross National Product with a measure of Gross National Happiness. These days it is the eighth happiest nation on Earth, (despite having a miniscule GDP of $5,429 per person).

Internet artist Jonathan Harris decided there was something in this, so he spent two weeks in late 2007 wandering around the country, chatting to its people and giving them brightly coloured balloons. (Because there ain’t nothing happier than balloons!) The result is Balloons of Bhutan, a multi-coloured, real world visualisation of the tiny kingdom’s state of happiness and the hopes, aspirations and favourite jokes of its people.”

GHIBAH TANPA SADAR
.
.
Tahu kah kalian apa itu Ghibah?
Ghibah adalah menceritakan sesuatu yang apabila orang yg diceritakan merasa tidak suka kalau dia dengar.
.
Ghibah itu jujur. Jujur karena sesuai kenyataan. Kalau nggak sesuai dengan kenyataan berarti buhtan (menuduh) yg pastinya lebih gede dosanya. Wal ‘iyya dzubillah.
.
Ghibah itu bak penyakit. Semua orang bisa terjangkit. Termasuk pula penuntut ilmu.
.
“Eh, ikhwan (sebut nama) itu jarang ngaji”
“Ngajinya bolong2 dan masih suka gitu”
.
Nah lho, ini ghibah apa bukan?
Ghibah sodara2. Coba kalau ikhwan yg dibicarakan denger, dia nggak suka kan?
.
Aneh bin ajaibnya kalau pas ketemu, senyam senyum kpd ikhwan yg di ghibahi tanpa memberikan nasehat atau ajakan utk ngaji lagi.
.
.
Semoga bukan aku dan kamu ya sobat.
Pokoknya jangan ada dusta diantara kita.
