WWW.PRIBUMI.WIN – One of the signs of noble-minded people is to use their wits. Want to think is one form of diligent nature, not lazy. Lazy is a bad trait, akhlaq disgraceful. So the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) taught his people lafadz prayer of protection from him.
“Allahumma inni a’udzubika minal hammi wal hazani, wa a’udzubika minal ajzi wal kasali, wa a’udzubika minal jubni wal bukhli, wa a’udzubika min ghalabatiddaini wa qahrirrijaal. (O God, I take refuge in you from the anguish of heart and sorrow, I take refuge in You from weakness and laziness, I take refuge in You from the cowardly and miserly nature And I seek Your protection from the debt and the oppression of others.) “(Abu Dawud) .
So what is the main thing that we should think of the Believers? The believer is a person who believes that this life is created by the Unseen Essence, does not grow by itself as the Atheists presume. The believer is the one who believes that the unseen Essence has also revealed revelation as the rule of life and the ultimate source of the science of all things. Well, in order for life to proceed with full blessing, not full of disaster and destruction, the believer should make use of his intellect to think, to learn, to understand, the revelation that has been revealed.
“The Book (the Qur’aan) which We sent down to you with a blessing that they may live their verses and that those who are sane shall be taught.” (Shad: 29)
“Follow what has been revealed to you from your Lord …” (al-An’am: 106).
Rasulullah shalallahu ‘alaihi wassalam ever convince this to his shahabatnya with metaphorical language to be more touching heart, inspiring soul.
“The Qur’an is one end in the Hand of God and the other end in your hand. Therefore hold on to it that you will not be lost and will not be corrupted, forever “(Hr Thabrani).
The Qur’an itself reminds us to also use the intellect to learn what is in the universe, because it is also the verses of Allah ta’ala in different forms.
“Verily in the creation of the heavens and the earth and the turn of the night and the day there are signs (greatness of God) for the intelligent. Those who will remember Allah when standing, sitting, or lying down, and they are thinking about the creation of heaven and earth … “(Ali Imran: 190-191).
Understanding the true verses of Allah ta’ala – with the methodologies and rules agreed and recommended by the ulama, we will understand, consciously, and convincingly that the life of this world is merely a trial, and our movements in the world will be accounted for In the next two realms. Only the one who chooses the path He accepts will get happiness there.
“And the life of this world is just a game and a joke. And the Hereafter is better for those who fear “(al-An’am: 32).
Once understood and aware of the fact that, normally a reasonable person will take into account every move, whether it leads to the pleasure and reward of Allah ta’ala, or vice versa, to His punishment.
“O believers, be devoted to God, and let everyone pay attention to what they have done for tomorrow. And be devoted to God. Truly, Allah is thoroughly aware of what you do. “(Al-Hashr: 18).

Thus, the scholars became the leading perpetrators and advocates of the forefront in practicing them. Their following statements imply that studying and understanding Allah’s verses of ta’ala, describing them to a vastly infinite science, is a noble and glorious deity, which is really needed in building a blessed, blessed civilization. That is the real form of noble morality.
Ibn al-Qayyim al-Jawziyah rahimahullah said, “If he reads it (the Qur’an) by thinking that if he reads a verse it is necessary for healing his heart, then he repeats it even though up to a hundred times and even up to one night. For, reading the verse by thinking and understanding is better than reading up to khatam but without appreciation and understanding. More beneficial to the heart and easier to reach the faith and feel the sweetness of reading the Qur’an. ”
The same thing is expressed by Imam Hasan al-Bashri rahimahullah with a very intriguing language. “Thinking for a moment is better than a whole night’s prayer.”
