Letter from Caliph Umar to River Nile

nile23

There was a time when Egypt was conquered by Muslims, Caliph Umar Al-Khattab put Amru Al-Ash as the governor of that new Muslim territory. Amru Al-Ash was famous as a valiant commander and an efficient and wise administrator.

After some period, the month of Bowana (June) came. At the beginning of the month a delegation of the “Qabti” tribe met the governor and said that one habit of the river Nile is such that if not fulfilled it (the Nile) stops flowing.

The governor asked. “What’s that?”.

They said: “After 12 nights of this month Bowana (June) has passed, we grab a beautiful young girl, persuade her parents, decorate this young girl with good clothes and jewelry and put her in the river Nile. After that the river flows with full force”

Pemimpin-Pemimpin Adil Sepanjang Sejarah. Who’s the Next…!?

Dari Jabir bin Samurah RA berkata, Rasulullah SAW bersabda,
“Setelah peninggalanku nanti akan ada dua belas orang Amir (Khalifah).” Jabir berkata, “Kemudian baginda bercakap sesuatu yang tidak kufahami, lalu aku bertanya kepada bapaku, lalu dia berkata, “Mereka semuanya dari golongan Quraisy.” (At-Tarmizi)

Sabda Nabi SAW,
Dunia tidak akan lenyap sehinggalah bangsa Arab diperintah oleh seorang lelaki dari kaum keluargaku, yang namanya menyamai namaku.”(Abu Daud)

——————————————————–

Inilah diantara Pemimpin-Pemimpin yang sudah dikhabarkan Rasulullah SAW :

1. Khalifah Abu Bakar as-Siddiq RA.

Baginda adalah khalifah yang pertama dan ditunjuk oleh baginda SAW secara tersirat. Beliau adalah sebaik-baik umat Nabi Muhammad SAW sepanjang zaman. Datang dari keturunan Bani Tamim, iaitu dari kaum Quraisy. Naiknya sebagai pemerintah telah disebutkan oleh Nabi SAW secara umum, dan secara tersirat juga. Umurnya sama panjang dengan umur Nabi SAW.

——————————-

2. Khalifah Umar bin al-Khattab RA.

Orang yang paling tinggi ilmu ketuhanannya di kalangan umat Islam dan merupakan Sahibul Zaman untuk zamannya. Datang dari Bani Adi, iaitu salah satu puak dari kaum Quraisy. Pelantikannya sebagai khalifah dibuat oleh sebaik-baik umat Muhammad SAW dan sudah dibayangkan oleh beberapa buah hadis. Umurnya juga sama panjang dengan umur Rasulullah SAW.

——————————-

3. Khalifah Osman bin Affan RA.

Paling dermawan dan lembut hati kerana Allah. Datang dari Bani Umaiyah yang terkenal sebagai golongan pentadbir di kalangan puak Quraisy. Juga telah disebutkan naiknya sebagai pemerintah dan matinya sebagai syahid juga sudah disebutkan. Beliau adalah salah seorang yang dijamin syurga.

——————————-

4. Khalifah Ali bin Abi Talib KMW.

Paling alim di kalangan umat Nabi Muhammad SAW. Sepupu Nabi SAW. Semestinyalah dari kaum Quraisy juga. Naiknya sebagai pemerintah memang sudah masyhur seantero alam, walaupun tanpa bantuan dari puak Syiah. Dari keturunan beliaulah lahirnya Imam Mahdi yang selalu disebut-sebut oleh orang ramai itu.

——————————-

5. Sayidina Hasan bin Ali RA.

Amat minoriti sejarawan Islam yang memasukkan namanya sebagai Khulafa ur-Rasyidin kelima, selepas Sayidina Ali KMW. Tempoh pemerintahannya yang amat pendek itu menyebabkan namanya ‘terkeluar’ daripada senarai Khulafa ur-Rasyidin. Jika dimasukkan juga, masih tidak bercanggah dengan tempoh yang ditetapkan oleh hadis sahih yang menyatakan tempoh pemerintahan Khulafa ur-Rasyidin yang selama 30 tahun itu.

——————————-

6. Sayidina Muawiyah bin Abu Sufian.

Merupakan sahabat Nabi SAW, walaupun lambat Islamnya. Diangkat sebagai salah seorang penulis wahyu. Datang dari Bani Umaiyah. Dan Bani Umaiyah itu memang salah satu suku yang terkenal di kalangan kaum Quraisy. Naiknya sebagai khalifah sudah disebutkan oleh Nabi SAW secara tersurat di hadapannya sendiri dengan disaksikan oleh Ummu Habibah RA. Beliau adalah tokoh sejarah yang amat kontroversi dan ramai ahli sejarah yang ‘terluncur pena’ lalu mengutuknya dari segenap penjuru, sedangkan beliau adalah sahabat Nabi SAW juga. ‘Perangainya’ yang kurang dipersetujui oleh ahli sejarah sebenarnya adalah dari segi ijtihad politik sahaja, bukan dari segi agama. Ini perlu dibezakan dan diketahui baik-baik. Sayangnya, perkara inilah yang gagal diperhatikan dan gagal pula difahami oleh sejarawan sehingga mereka menerima sahaja riwayat-riwayat Syiah yang memburuk-buruk dan mengutuknya sehabis-habis hati.

——————————-

7. Sayidina Abdullah bin az-Zubair RA.

Anak kepada Zubair bin Al-Awwam RA. Anak angkat kepada Ummul Mukminin Sayidatina Aisyah RA. Pemerintahannya cuma di Makkah tetapi naiknya sebagai pemerintah sudah disebutkan oleh para sahabat RA. Matinya sebagai syahid juga sudah disebutkan oleh mereka. Disayangkan, ramai ahli sejarah Islam dan pengkaji yang turut ‘terluncur pena’ dengan menyatakannya sebagai pemberontak kepada kerajaan Bani Umaiyah. Maka banyaklah riwayat batil mengenai dirinya diambil oleh para sarjana tanpa memeriksa betul tidaknya riwayat itu, dan tanpa mengira siapa peribadi yang mereka kutuk itu. Juga datang dari kalangan kaum Quraisy yang terkenal.

——————————-

8. Khalifah Umar bin Abdul Aziz.

Lahir dari pertemuan dua khalifah berketurunan Quraisy iaitu dari keturunan Sayidina Umar al-Khattab RA yang datang dari suku Bani Adi dan dari keturunan Bani Umaiyah yang sedang memerintah ketika itu. Merupakan mujaddid kurun pertama, sekaligus yang memerintah. Itulah yang dikatakan sebagai Sahibul Zaman. Pemerintahannya memang adil walaupun hanya sekejap sahaja dan ini sudah tidak perlu dihuraikan lagi. Kealiman dan kewarakannya amat menakjubkan hati seluruh umat Islam, sejak dahulu hinggalah ke hari ini. Banyak jasanya yang masih diamalkan oleh seluruh umat Islam di serata dunia hingga ke hari ini, dan ini menjadikan beliau seorang khalifah dan ilmuwan sejati yang mengagumkan. Ahli-ahli sejarah tidak jemu-jemu mengorek rahsia hidupnya, dan rahsia kejayaannya, tetapi mereka masih tidak menemui apa-apa.

9. Sultan Muhammad al-Fateh.

Walaupun bangsa Turkinya tebal, namanya sudah dinyatakan oleh hadis-hadis yang menyebutkan pembuka Kota Konstantinopel adalah oleh sebaik-baik raja, tenteranya adalah sebaik-baik tentera dan rakyatnya adalah sebaik-baik rakyat. Dikatakan bahawa ibunya adalah datang dari keturunan Quraisy walaupun sudah agak jauh Quraisynya. Beliau adalah raja yang berjiwa sufi, amat taatkan perintah Allah dan amat tawakal kepada Allah, dari segi zahir dan batinnya

Whos the NEXT Leaders….?!

Islam is rising in the EAST ( Malaysia & Indonesia )

Most people know about the predictions of Nostradamus (a French Jew) concerning the coming of a saviour that he mentioned as “the man with the blue turban”.

A Dutch writer, G. H. Brill wrote in his book The First Encyclopaedia of Islam (1913) about the rise of Islam from the East by someone he called “the standard bearer of Mahdi”.

And in an ancient and famous Javanese book known as Babad Jawa, there is mention about the coming of one “Ratu Adil” (Imam Mahdi) and “Satria Piningit” (The Bearer of his Banner ) who will govern Indonesia and the Malay Archipelago with pure Islamic teachings. Permadi SH is a famous name in Indonesia.

He said clearly that Satria Piningit is the person who will lead to Ratu Adil. Before him is Satria Kinunjara and Satria Mukti Wibawa. Satria Kinunjara is the one who spent most of his life in prison and who set Indonesia free from colonization.

That was Soekarno. Permadi SH also said clearly that Satria Piningit is an admirer and he echoes the message of Soekarno. Satria Mukti Wibawa is a leader full of charisma who filled Indonesia’s independence. That was Soeharto. But Permadi SH also mentioned that Soeharto’s era was still an era of chaos and anarchy. There was no justice until the arrival of Satria Piningit.

Satria Piningit literally means a hidden warrior. He exists but appears non-existent. He is non-existent but appears to exist. This means he is protected by God. He is surrounded by tyranny and injustice like maggots crawling and creeping all over his body.
On one side, Satria Piningit has the good character of Soekarno. On the other side he has the good character of Soeharto. He is brave, vocal but calm and bound by strategy.

That is why Permadi SH said he is the combination of both Soekarno and Soeharto.
His arrival results in the merger of Malaysia and Indonesia. This is a continuation of the success of the Kingdom of Majapahit. That kingdom united the Malay Archipelago with the influence of Hindu and Buddhist religions.

This time, the Malay Archipelago will unite under the banner of pure Islam. Permadi SH also mentioned this is the turn of the Malays to lead the world. The light of Islam will emerge from the Malay Archipelago and will brighten the whole world.

The signs are already clear and the emergence of Satria Piningit is very near. He will emerge exactly at the time he is needed.

These predictions of Permadi SH are almost similar to the predictions of the Jewish Nostradamus and the writings of G. H. Brill. Verily God in His own way has spread this dazzling news about the rise of Islam in the last era to most races and languages of the world. Almost all races have heard about it. It is exciting and elating news to all Muslims. But to the enemies of Islam, they are wary and very sad.

We can see what is happening in the East beginning from the early 15th Hijriah century. We will notice the revival of Islam in the Malay world that is growing and expanding although it is being hindered and obstructed. This is a strange phenomenon.

Malays are becoming the best people in the practice of Islam and they are in the forefront of the Islamic struggle in the whole world today. It is not yet perfect, but is certainly progressing. This is no longer a secret. Although Islam was brought to the Malay Archipelago by Arab Traders more than 700 years ago, only now is Islam beginning to flourish in this region albeit in an era where the second age of ignorance has enveloped the whole world. Islam here did not die nor did it perish although it is was colonized and its enemies tried to kill it countless times.

This second revival of Islam does not follow the system or process of political elections. Islam has its own system. The Prophet choose a different system from the system of his time to bring up and to raise Islam.

He did it through dakwah (missionary work) and education using the divine revelations and the Hadith. His approach was through love, care, brotherhood and fraternity. When the hearts and minds of people are processed through divine revelations which are heartfelt and supreme, there will be an overall shift in the hearts and minds of people and of the society towards the truth and virtue that will bring about an Islamic nation followed by an Islamic Empire.

We should emulate the Companions of the Prophet who rushed to realise the promise of Allah to be the good military leader who would capture Constantinople from the Nasranis as said by the Prophet. They were not told who the good military leader was.

So they wanted to try to be him including Sayidina Abu Ayub Al Ansari who was then more than 90 years old. He advanced towards Constantinople and because he was not the promised one, he died a martyr beside the walls of the city. They were not disappointed if they failed. What is important is to fight for what Allah has promised and to gain His forgiveness and acceptance. Not trying is much worse than failing.

The Party of Allah (II) – The Criteria of The LEADER

al_aqsa_mosque_dome.jpg

1. The leaders of the party of Allah are the representatives or the caliphs of Allah.

They are appointed or chosen by Allah through divine revelations (wahyu), Hadiths, by divine inspirations (ilham) or by the Ahlul Halli wal Aqdi (the consultative council). The Apostles were shown by divine revelations. The Caliphs (Khulafaur Rashidin) were shown by the Hadiths and the Ahlul Halli wal Aqdi. The Mujaddids (reformers) were and are shown by the Hadiths and divine inspirations. Saul (Tholut) and Alexander the Great (Zulkarnain) were shown by divine revelations. Muhammad Al Fateh was shown by the Hadiths and divine inspirations. The second coming of Prophet Isa or Jesus is shown by the Quran and Hadiths. Al Mahdi is shown by the Hadiths and divine inspirations. The Prince of Bani Tamim is also shown by the Hadiths and divine inspirations. There were also minor leaders who were saints and pious people whose birth and leadership were shown by divine inspirations.

The Caliphs or Allah’s representatives do not become leaders through the process of elections or counting of votes. In fact, they do not go through any specific method. They are accepted by the people around them because of their worship, their taqwa (fear of Allah), their exemplary character, knowledge, sacrifices, leadership, services to the society and their contribution towards the community. Even if non-Muslims do not convert to Islam, they still accept and love them and their leadership. These leaders are accepted by the hearts of people and not by votes or the show of hands. That is how Allah appoints His people.

2. Leaders chosen by Allah are given knowledge through divine revelations or divine inspirations or knowledge that goes direct to their hearts (laduni).

Divine revelations are only for the Apostles and the Prophets whereas leaders who are not Apostles and Prophets are given divine inspirations (ilham). Divine inspirations give new meaning to the interpretation and understanding relating to divine revelations (Quran) and the laws of Allah (shariah).

Every Mujaddid (reformer) brings divine inspirations of his own which form his mind or his thoughts, which is knowledge that is relevant and suitable for his time and era. His mind is knowledge which is new and different from those existing and those before it. His mind however is not a new teaching neither is it a new set of laws and regulations. It does not change divine revelations but expounds it and gives it a new understanding, meaning and dimension relevant to its particular era. Continue reading

The Party of ALLAH (I): HIZBULLAH – in the TRUE meaning

In Islam, and as contained in the Quran, Allah had clearly and firmly introduced the party of Islam with the title “Hizbullah” which means the Party of Allah.

party.jpg

~ The Party of ALLAH never follows the Western secular political system a.k.a Democracy & Election ~

Which in turn means that, Islam requires all its followers to be in such a party that is the Party of Allah. Not the party that follow the Western secular political system.

This is stated in the following verses:

Which means: “Verily, your leader is none other that Allah, His Messenger and the believers – those who perform as solah (prayers) and give zakah (tithes) and those who bow and submit themselves to Allah. And whosoever takes Allah, His Messenger and those who believe as their leaders, they are the party of Allah and they will be victorious.“ (Al Maidah: 55-56)

The Prophet, peace be upon him (pbuh) also firmly said that Muslims are obligated to be in a party. He said:

Meaning: “It is obligatory that you be with a jamaah (party), verily Allah’s hand (help) is with the jamaah (party).”

This next Hadith of the Prophet explains in detail the meaning of “the party”:

Meaning: “There will always be a toifah (group) among my followers that will be able to manifest the truth and they would be invincible before those who qppose them until the command from Allah comes.” (Narrated by Al Bukhari and Muslim)

The criteria of that party, jamaah or toifah which is said as the Party of Allah was also mentioned by the Prophet (pbuh) as follows

Meaning: “Being in a jamaah (party) is a blessing and being divided is a torment.” (Narrated by Al Baihaqi)

In observing and analysing the Party of Allah which was established by the Prophet (pbuh), the four ‘Caliphs’ (Khulafaur Rashidin), the Mujaddids (reformers) and other promised leaders of the truth, we could clearly see the criteria or characteristics of the party or group (jamaah) or ‘toifah’ or ‘hizbullah’ as mentioned above.

I would like to summarise these characteristics so that Muslims can form a party or a group (jamaah) of their own which is fit to be called the party of Allah or the Islamic Party or the party of the truth. At the very least, they could use the characteristics to determine whether any particular party or group that exist today is true or false. If possible we can search out the party which fulfils the exact characteristics of the party of Allah so that we can join it and be its followers.

dirty-ballot-box.jpg

~ Democracy based on election is a dirty political system & UnISLAMIC ~

I would like to emphasise that the difference between the Party of Allah and the secular party of Western Politics is like heaven and earth. Even though there are some groups who name their party as an Islamic party, but without the proper criteria and characteristics, they are not and cannot be deemed as the Party of Allah. Their principles, techniques, methods, characteristics, approach, objective, and everything else are so different from that of Islamic politics, as different as night is to day. Continue reading

The PROPHET’s LEGACY : The LAST Era that was PROMISED (I)

~ From Ibnu Umar r.a. that Rasulullah (pbuh), whilst holding the hand of Sayidina Ali, said: “It will emerge from this sulbi (basis of descendance), a man who will fill the earth with justice. And so, when you are convinced of such, you must endeavour to be with the Prince of Bani Tamim. Verily he comes from the East and he is the holder of the standards of Al Mahdi.” (Narrated by At-Tabrani)

Soothsayers of many races using many languages and varied methods agree with the sayings of the Prophet (pbuh) about the last era. The last era is specifically for Islam. The most famous are the predictions of the Jewish, Christian and Javanese soothsayers.

This is the last era that is promised by Allah. With the will of Allah, the resplendence of Islam from the East in this last era will be a repetition of the first resplendence, and the first empire of Islam. It is promised. It is within the power of Allah to make the East the foundation of the second empire of Islam (ummah) similar to the way Allah chose Mecca and Medina to be the foundation for the first empire of Islam.
