“I’ve learned that several people experienced acceptance of their du’as at the times of iqamah and when it rains”

— Imam Shafi’i, Kitab al-Umm (v. 2, p. 554, no. 591-592)

Di Riyadh, ada seorang anak berumur 16 tahun. Suatu ketika di masjid, ia membaca al-Qur'an guna menunggu iqamah shalat Subuh. Setelah iqamah, mus-haf yang ia baca diletakkan kembali di tempat semula lalu segera masuk ke shaf.

Tiba-tiba ia tersungkur dan pingsan. Beberapa orang di masjid membawanya ke sebuah rumah sakit.

Dokter al-Jubeir yang mendiagnosa kondisinya berkisah:

“Pemuda itu dibawa kesini seperti jenazah. Setelah kuperiksa lebih lanjut ternyata dia mengalami pembekuan darah di jantung. Jika ini terjadi pada unta, ini akan mematikan unta tersebut.

Aku memandang pemuda itu, ia tengah sekarat hendak disambar kematian. Kami bergegas menolongnya dan mengusahakan detak jantungnya. Aku letakkan dia di dekat seorang petugas ambulance yang membawanya.

Aku segera pergi mengambil dan menyiapkan peralatan untuk segera mengambil tindakan medis. Ketika aku kembali dan bersiap-siap memeriksa kembali, ia tengah berada di pangkuan petugas tadi.

Sang petugas meletakkan telinganya di mulut pemuda itu. Sang pemuda melirihkan sesuatu di telinga beliau. Aku berdiri melihat keduanya.

Beberapa detik kemudian, ia memegang erat tangan petugas tersebut. Secara perlahan, sang pemuda menoleh ke arah kanan.

"Asyhadu allaa ilaha illallah wa asyhadu anna muhammad ‘abduhu warasuluh…” Lirih suaranya berucap dalam sekarat.

Dia mengulang-ulang kalimat tauhid itu.

Nadinya terhenti. Begitu pula detakan jantungnya. Kami berusaha menekan dadanya namun ketentuan dan takdir Allah lebih cepat mendahului. Dia pun meninggal.

Petugas ambulance mengangis di sisinya hingga tak mampu berdiri.
Aku bertanya:

“Kenapa anda menangis? Tentunya ini bukan kali pertama anda melihat mayat.”

Dia terus menangis. Setelah tangisannya reda, aku kembali bertanya:

“Apa yang diucapkan pemuda tadi kepada anda?”

Dia menjawab:

“Wahai dokter, ketika pemuda tadi melihat anda sibuk bolak-balik, memerintahkan kami ini dan itu, dia lantas memahami bahwa engkau adalah spesialis jantung. Lantas pemuda itu berkata kepadaku:

((Wahai tuan, katakan kepada rekan anda spesialis jantung itu, tak perlu menyibukkan diri. Kematian adalah sesuatu yang tidak terelakkan. Sungguh, saat ini aku tengah melihat tempatku di Surga)).”“

Allah berfirman:

إِنَّ الَّذِينَ قَالُوا رَبُّنَا اللَّهُ ثُمَّ اسْتَقَامُوا تَتَنَزَّلُ عَلَيْهِمُ الْمَلَائِكَةُ أَلَّا تَخَافُوا وَلَا تَحْزَنُوا وَأَبْشِرُوا بِالْجَنَّةِ الَّتِي كُنتُمْ تُوعَدُونَ

"Sesungguhnya orang-orang yang mengatakan: “Tuhan kami ialah Allah,” kemudian mereka meneguhkan pendirian mereka, maka malaikat akan turun kepada mereka dengan mengatakan: “Janganlah kamu takut dan janganlah merasa sedih; dan gembirakanlah mereka dengan surga yang telah dijanjikan Allah kepadamu.” (QS. Fushshilat, 30)

Ya Allah wafatkan kami dalam keadaan khusnul khotimah..aamiin ya robbal aalamiin..

Doa itu ibadah.

– Ikhlas.
- Allah murka kalau kita jenis tak berdoa atau meminta pada Allah. Tuhan bagi nikmat pun satu ujian.
- Tak putuskan siraturrahim. Banyakkan senyum.
- Jaga sumber makanan. Yang halal.

Adab berdoa:
*Ikhlas. Bersungguh. Tak memain.
*Menghadap qiblat.
*Memohon dengan beradab dan bersungguh. Tunjuk kita berhajat.
*Jangan merengek dalam berdoa. Persoalkan Tuhan.
*Berwuduk lagi baik.
*Ulang tiga kali.
*Puji Allah. Selawat pada Nabi.
– “Jangan buat doa maksiat. Doa maksiat maksudnya doa untuk keburukan orang lain, dalam islam tak dibenarkan. Kena doa untuk mereka jadi baik. Bukan apa, malaikat akan doakan kita balik.”

3 Perkara dalam berdoa.
*Dimakbulkan. Segera dapat di dunia.
*Mungkin Tuhan simpan untuk di akhirat.
*Tak dapat yang itu. Dia bagi lebih baik. Keburukan dijauhkan daripada kita sebab Tuhan lagi tahu kalau dapat mungkin ada yang tak baik untuk kita.

- Waktu mustajab doa. Antara azan dengan iqamah. Sepertiga malam. Waktu hujan. Ketika sujud. Banyak lagi waktu mustajab. Walaupun ketika uzur. Tak boleh sembahyang pun boleh berdoa.

- Yang penting keikhlasan berdoa. Kusyuk.
- Perlu ada hubungan baik dengan Tuhan.

I am learning more about Shia Islam and I have observed Shia Muslims are very attached to Abbas RA but he was a stepson and stepbrother of Hazrat Husayn RA so why the attachment? Can you please explain this? Jazakhallah 😅

Imam Ali (peace and blessings of Allah be upon our blessed master) married Fatimah Binti Huzaam Ibn Khalid in 24 Hijrah.
Fatimah gave birth to Hazrat Abbas on the 4th Shabaan, 26th Hijrah. In 27th Hijrah Ja’far was born and in 29th
Hijrah Uthmaan was born. Abdullah was born in 32nd Hijrah. Because she had four sons Fatima Binti Huzaam was known as Ummul Baneen.
Ummul Baneen, from the very first day she entered imam Ali’s (AS) house, treated the children of Bibi Fatimah with utmost respect.

She brought up her own sons to look upon Imam Hassan, Imam Husayn, Bibi Zainab and Bibi Kulthoom, not as brothers and sisters but as masters and mistresses.

Imam Husayn (AS) was very attached to Hazrat Abbas. When Hazrat Abbas was born, imam Ali (as) asked Imam Husayn (AS) to recite the adhaan and the iqamah in the ears of the child.

When he was on the arms of Imam Husayn (AS), the infant smiled and raised his arms. There were tears in Imam Husayn’s eyes. Was it because he knew that the child was trying to say: “O Mawla I have come and will happily give these my arms and my life for you and Islam?”
In early childhood Hazrat Abbas would follow Imam Husayn (AS) like a shadow.

If Imam Husayn (AS) looked thirsty, Hazrat Abbas would rush to bring him water. If Imam Husayn (AS) seemed hot, Hazrat Abbas would fan him with the hem of his cloak. At the battle of Siffeen in the 34th Hijrah, Hazrat Abbas was only eight years old. Imam Husayn (AS) was fighting in the battle field. When Hazrat Abbas saw an enemy soldier approaching Imam Husayn (AS) from behind, he took
a sword and rushed into the battle field and killed the enemy, at the same time crying out in a loud voice, “How can any one dare attack my Mawla while I am alive.” He continued to fight maintaining his position behind Imam Husayn (AS). Muawiya saw this and asked, “Who is that boy?” When he was told he was Abbas ibn Ali, he said, “By God! No one can fight like that at that age except a son of Ali!”

Hazrat Abbas grew up to be a tall and handsome man. He was so tall, that when he sat on a horse his feet touched the ground. He was so handsome that he was known as Qamar al- Bani Hashim, the Moon of the family of Hashim.
Hazrat Abbas was also a valiant warrior. It was said that Muawiya did not dare invade Madina because of five men who were with Imam Husayn (AS) and could, together with their
Imam, conquer a whole army. These were Muhammad Hanafia, a brother of Imam Husayn (AS), Hazrat Muslim ibn Aqeel, Abdullah Ibn Ja’far, Hazrat Abbas and Hazrat Ali ibnal Husayn, our fourth Imam, Zainul ‘Abideen (AS). When Imam Husayn (AS) decided to leave Madina in the month of Rajab 60 Hijrah, he did not encourage Muhammad Hanafia and Abdullah Ibn Ja’far to accompany him. He wanted to make sure that no one at the time or in the future would suggest that Husayn wanted to fight for the khilafah.

Just before Imam Husayn (AS) left Madina, Ummul Baneen summoned all her four sons and said to them, “My sons you must remember that while I love you, Imam Husayn (AS) is your Master. If Imam or his sisters or his children get injured or hurt while you are still alive, I will never forgive you.” There were tears in Hazrat Abbas’s eyes as he promised his mother that he
and his brothers would lay down their lives for Imam Husayn (AS) and his children.
The caravan reached Karbala’ on 2nd Muharram. From the day the sad news of Hazrat Muslim’s murder had reached the caravan of Imam Husayn (AS), Hazrat Abbas and his brothers increased their vigilance to protect Imam and the others. Hazrat Abbas was very popular with the children of Imam Husayn (AS) especially Bibi Sakina who was only four years old. Whenever the children wanted anything they would cry out
“Ya Abbas!” or “Ya Ammahu!”, and Hazrat Abbas would go running. But from the seventh of Muharram Abbas was unable to respond to their cries for water. Then came the day of Ashura, after Zuhr prayers one by one the brave companions of Imam Husayn (AS) fell in the battle field.

At last only Imam Husayn (AS), Hazrat Ali Akbar and Hazrat Abbas were left. Imam Zainul ‘Abideen (AS) lay sick in his tent.

Several times Hazrat Abbas asked Imam Husayn (AS) for permission to go and fight. Each time Imam Husayn (AS) would reply “Abbas, you are the captain of my army, you are my ‘Alamdaar – the standard bearer.” Hazrat Abbas would never argue with Imam Husayn (AS). His three brothers were killed in the battle fought after Zuhr. Imam Husayn could see the anger in Hazrat Abbas’s eyes, especially when Hazrat Qasim’s body was trampled upon by the enemy.
Imam Husayn (AS) knew that if he let Hazrat Abbas go and fight, there would be a massacre in the enemy rank. Imam Husayn’s (AS) object was to re-awaken Islam and not to score a victory on the battle field.

Just then Bibi Sakina came out holding a dried up mask. She walked up to Hazrat Abbas and said “al atash (water),  ya ammahu! I am thirsty O my uncle Abbas!” Hazrat Abbas went to Imam Husayn (AS) and requested for permission to go and get water for Bibi Sakina. Imam Husayn (AS) gave his permission. Hazrat Abbas put Bibi Sakina’s mashk on the ‘alam, mounted his horse and rode up to Imam Husayn (AS). He said “I have come to say goodbye.”
Imam Husayn said “My brother, come and embrace me.” Hazrat Abbas dismounted his horse. There were tears in Imam’s eyes. As Hazrat Abbas prepared to mount his horse,
Imam Husayn (AS) said, “My brother, I want a gift from you. I want your sword.” Hazrat Abbas, without uttering a word, gave Imam Husayn his sword and rode into the battlefield, armed
only with a spear and holding the ‘alam.


There were 30,000 enemy soldiers in the battlefield. They had all heard of the valour of Hazrat Abbas. A cry arose, “Abbas is coming!” Yazid’s soldiers started hiding behind one another. A few brave ones dared go near Hazrat Abbas but were soon put to death by the spear or by a kick. Hazrat Abbas reached the river Furaat. He filled the mashk with water. He himself was very thirsty.

He took the water in his palms, looked at it and threw it away saying, “O water of Furaat, my lips can welcome you only after Bibi Sakina has quenched her thirst!?” He placed the mashk on his ‘alam and started to ride back.
Umar Sa’ad cried out, “Do not let that water reach Husayn’s camp, otherwise we shall all be doomed!” A soldier climbed a tree and as Hazrat Abbas was riding past the tree he struck his sword on the right shoulder The spear and the arm fell on to the ground. Just then someone crept behind Hazrat Abbas and struck him on the left shoulder. The ‘alam fell. Hazrat Abbas gripped the mashk with his teeth. His one object was to get the water to Bibi Sakina.
Fighting with his feet he urged the horse to get him to Imam’s camp as quickly as possible. Alas! an arrow was shot. It went flying across the desert and hit the mashk. The water
began to pour out and with the water all the hopes of Hazrat Abbas poured on to the sands of Karbala’ to be buried forever in the thirsty desert. Hazrat Abbas now did not want to go back and face Bibi Sakina. With his feet, he signalled the horse to turn back. The enemy surrounded him from all sides. Hazrat Abbas fell from the horse!! As he fell, he cried out “My salaams to you Ya Mawla!”

Imam Husayn (AS) seemed to lose all his strength when he heard the voice of his dear brother Abbas. When Hazrat Abbas left to go to fetch water, Imam stood at the gate of the camp watching the ‘alam. Bibi Sakina was standing next to Imam Husayn (AS), also with her eyes fixed on the ‘alam. When Hazrat Abbas reached the river bank and bent down to fill the mashk, the alam disappeared from sight.

Bibi Sakina was frightened and looked at her father. Imam said, ‘Sakina, your uncle Hazrat Abbas is at the river bank.’ Bibi Sakina smiled and said, ‘Alhamdulillah!’ and called out all
the children to welcome Hazrat Abbas. When Hazrat Abbas lost both arms, the ‘alam fell onto the ground. Bibi Sakina could see it no longer! She looked at Imam Husayn (AS), but he turned his face away. Bibi Sakina began to tremble with fear and her eyes filled with tears.

She raised her hands and prayed, ‘Ya Allah! Do not let them kill my uncle Abbas! I will never ask for water again!’ and ran inside to her mother.
Imam Husayn (AS) reached where Hazrat Abbas was lying. It was a tragic sight. Hazrat Abbas was lying on the ground. Both arms had been severed! There was an arrow in the right eye
and blood blocked the left eye. As soon as Hazrat Abbas sensed the presence of Imam Husayn (AS) he said “Mawla, why did you take the trouble to come over? Please go back and look after Sakina.” Imam Husayn (AS) said, “My dear brother, all your life you have served me and my children. Is there anything I can do for you at this last moment of you life?”
Hazrat Abbas replied, “Aqaa, please, clean the blood from my eye so that I can see your beloved face before I die!” Imam cleaned the blood. Hazrat Abbas fixed his gaze on Imam.

Then he said, “Mawla please do not carry my body to the camp. I do not wish Sakina to see me in this state!” Imam Husayn (AS) took Hazrat Abbas in his arms, and kissed his forehead. Just then our Mawla, our Mushkil Kushaa, Hazrat Abbas ibn Ali breathed his last.
Imam Husayn placed Bibi Sakina’s mashk on the ‘alam and carried the ‘alam to the camp. He went to Bibi
Zainab’s tent. Imam Husayn (AS) could not say a word. He gave the ‘alam to Bibi Zainab and sat down on the floor! The brother sister performed aza al-Abbas.

“Abbas,  my child, I know your unbounded love for Husayn. Though you are too young to be told about it, when that day dawns,  consider no sacrifice too great for Husayn and his children”
-Imam Ali ibn Abu Talib (AS) to Abbas

May Allah SWT grant us all guidance so we adhere to leadership like Abbas son of Ali did.

Masjid di Dalam Rumah

Aku ingin menjadi masjidmu di dalam rumah. Berdiri di sudut kamarmu yang aman dan rahasia. Yang menggemakan adzan dan iqamah di telingamu.
Yang memaksamu beranjak dari tidur.

Aku hendak menjadi masjidmu di dalam rumah. Dimana kamu bisa dengan leluasa berdoa, dengan tenang berwudhu tanpa takut dilihat orang lain, juga tak perlu khawatir menjadi makmum masbuk. Sebab imamnya selalu menunggumu, menantimu bersiap-siap.

Aku akan menjadi masjidmu di dalam rumah. Biar kamu bisa bertemu dengan-Nya sepanjang waktu. Menjadi sarana ibadah yang bisa kamu bawa kemana-mana. Semoga masjidmu bisa membuatmu nyaman.

Leluasa Beribadah

Ada yang berikhtiar untuk mendapatkan keleluasaan waktu di masa depan. Agar bisa bebas beribadah, tidak terikat waktu katanya.

Tapi nyatanya dalam perjalanan, bersiap shalat pun masih menunggu adzan, terlanjur adzan lalu menunggu iqamah, terlanjur iqamah baru bergegas melangkah.

Bahkan sudah kalah sebelum di uji, kemudian berkaca pada diri sendiri.

Salaat after Adhan and Iqamah

 Imām Ja'far ibn Muhammad al-Sādiq (A.S.)  said:


“One who offers Salaat after saying Azaan and Iqamah two rows of angels pray behind him. If a person offers Salaat after saying Iqamah only, one row of angels prays behind him.” The narrator asked, “How wide is that row?” Imām (a.s.) replied, “The shortest is from east to west and the longest from earth to heaven.”


[Reference: Sawaabul A’amaal, page 63]

Prayers with Adhan & Iqamah

Imam As-Sadiq (peace be upon him) has said: “One who offers his prayers along with Adhan and Iqamah, two rows of angels pray behind him, while one who offers his prayers with only the Iqamah and without the Adhan, one row of angels pray behind him.” The Imam (peace be upon him) was asked: “And how long is each row?” The Imam (peace be upon him) replied: “At the very minimum, its length is the distance between East and West, while at the maximum, its length is the distance between the earth and the heavens.” Wasa’ilush Shi`a, Volume 4, Page 620

judulnya bukan jatuh cinta

tulisan ini bukan memenuhi undangan dari gowithepic, tapi tulisan ini dibuat karena seseorang mengajak berpartisipasi. bukan orang yang pernah kutemui dalam tatap muka, tapi orang yang akan kutemui. seorang kawan yang akhir-akhir ini berbagi tawa dan cerita.

jatuh cinta adalah hal yang tak pernah bisa dimengerti. bagaimana mungkin bisa mengerti sesuatu yang tak memiliki arti. ada jutaan orang, ada jutaan tafsir atas cinta. mungkin jatuh cinta adalah alasan seorang wanita rela memutus 40 urat nadi yang melilit di rahimnya hanya untuk membuat seorang bayi melihat teriknya mentari. jatuh cinta seperti apa yang membuatnya mau berkorban sedemikian rupa untuk seseorang yang bahkan tak pernah ia lihat sebelumnya.

cinta seperti apa yang membuat pria banting tulang untuk seseorang bernama anak yang setiap hari membantah perintahnya. jatuh cinta seperti apa yang membuat seorang pria berpeluh keringat membanting tulang yang bukan untuk kelangsungan hidupnya, tapi kelangsungan hidup seorang manusia yang memiliki masa depan penuh misteri.

maka cinta tak pernah datang dari mata lalu jatuh turun ke hati, cinta hadir dari rasa yang tak kan bisa dimengerti. cinta apa yang dimiliki oleh Zaid bin Harist seorang anak angkat Rasulluloh sehingga dia menikahi Barakah binti Tsalabah seorang wanita tua mantan pengasuh Rasul.

jatuh cinta bisa jadi adalah pergolakan, gabungan ketidaksengajaan yang saling terkait bersama angan akan masa depan. jatuh cina bisa berarti rintik hujan yang meresap pada kaca jendela hingga aku bisa menuliskan pesan rindu lewat kata. jatuh cinta bisa jadi sebuah pertanyaan atas setiap tanda yang terangkai tanpa pernah bisa dibaca. jatuh cinta bisa berarti kekhawatiran atas kehilangan kenangan-kenangan yang tak kan bisa terulang.

jatuh cinta bisa jadi sebuah harapan, harapan yang terus untuk diperjuangkan. jatuh cinta bisa jadi hanya sebuah fragmen kecil yang dipaksakan, yang entah sudah usai atau masih andai. hingga pada suatu titik pada akhirnya hanya menyisakan dua pilihan perpisahan atau kebersamaan.

aku hanya ingin berkata, jatuh cinta saja tak cukup tapi juga membangun cinta, aku ingin kita bersama jatuh.. bangun…. jatuh lagi… bangun lagi…. jatuh…. bangun lagi… bangun… berjalan… berlari… hingga melompat bersamamu, sampai pada masa dimana kita tak peduli lagi pada jatuh cinta karena pada masa itu yang penting kita bersama… akan tiba waktu kau memutus 40 urat nadi dirahimmu dan aku akan gelisah disampingmu dengan bibirku yang kelu bergetar mengumandngkan adzan serta iqamah. hingga masa kita akan bertengkar karena tarif listrik dan harga sembako naik. hingga masa kita akan tertawa bersama dalam riuh rendah tawa renyah dan tangis bahagia dalam atap yang kita susun bersama. maka saat itu tak ada lagi jatuh cinta…. karena cinta telah tumbuh dan mengakar. 

seperti biji yang jatuh ke tanah, seperti itulah cinta itu jatuh. dia akan tumbuh menjadi rindang untuk melindungi dan menghidupi, mengakar kuat kebawah untuk bertahan atas segala terpaan.

Make lots of Duas (supplications) in Ramadan. Remember that Allah (Subhānahū Wa Ta'ālā) is the All-Hearing (As-Samee`), the All-Seeing (Al-Başeer) and the All-Knowing (Al-`Aleem).

Don’t forget the special times of the acceptance of Duas, such as the last third of the night, while prostrating, between the Adhan and Iqamah, and at the time of breaking your fast, etc.

Remember that our Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “Du'a is worship.” [Abu Dawud]
