Prof Dr. Wahbah Zuhayli

S.S Dato' Seri Hj. Harussani Hj. Zakaria

Ucapan tahniah diucapkan kepada penerima Tokoh Maal Hijrah 1430H iaitu Mufti Negeri Perak, YBhg S.S Dato' Seri Hj. Harussani b. Zakaria dan Ulama' Syria, Prof Dr. Wahbah b. Zuhayli. Semoga jejak langkah mereka dicontohi dan menjadi peransang kepada kita semua terutama umat Islam di Malaysia. Sebenarnya saya amat kagum dengan profil dan peribadi tokoh Maal Hijrah kali ini. Sesungguhnya mereka merupakan ulama' yang saya kagumi dan contohi sejak dahulu lagi.

Kelantangan dan keberanian S.S Dato' Seri Dr. Harussani Zakaria dalam mengeluarkan fatwa sangat menarik minat saya serta ilmu yang beliau miliki. Bicara beliau dalam lembut ada ketegasan. Kata-kata beliau beliau dalam MuktamarPerhimpunan Agung Tahunan PKPIM kira-kira 4 tahun dahulu di Ipoh masih segar dalam ingatan saya. Selain itu juga beliau sering muncul dalam rancangan Soal Jawab Agama dalam Radio Ipoh. Sesungguhnya ketokohan beliau sangat saya kagumi.

Saya mula mendengar nama Prof Dr. Wahbah Zuhayli semasa di Pusat Matrikulasi UIAM di Petalaing Jaya. Pada ketika itu hanya mengenali beliau melalui buku-buku karangan beliau dan belum lagi berjinak-jinak untuk membaca hasil penulisan beliau. Namun minat mula muncul untuk mengenali beliau dengan lebih dekat lagi semasa berada di kampus utama UIAM di Gombak. Kursus di UIA yang memerlukan kajian yang mendalam terhadap Al-Quran dan Hadis telah menemukan saya dengan tokoh ini. Kitab yang sering menjadi rujukan saya dan juga antara kitab kegemaran saya ialah Tafsir Al-Munir karangan Prof Dr. Wahbah Zuhayli. Kandungannya yang padat dengan mufradatnya, Lughah Al-Quran, ayat-ayat hukum, perbahasan, dan sebagainya menarik minat saya untuk membacanya. Terdapat juga kitab karangan beliau dalam bidang fiqh dan sebagainya. Beliau juga pernah memberi khutbah Jumaat di Masjid UIAM dan merupakan detik yang termanis kerana dapat melihat sendiri ulama daripada jarak dekat.


Dikesempatan ini saya ingin mengucapkan Salam Maal Hijrah 1430 H
: : Kullu Aam Wa Antum Bikhair : : kepada seluruh umat Islam.

Semoga dengan kedatangan tahun baru ini kita dapat memperbaiki amalan kita supaya menjadi yang terbaik daripada sebelumnya. Semoga tahun baru ini lebih bik daripada tahun-tahun yang sebelumnya. Sesungguhnya ketika tibanya tahun baru hijrah mengingatkan kita kepada sejarah penghijrahan Nabi Muhammad S.A.W dari Makkah ke Kota Madinah.

: : THE HIJRAH : :

By : Sheikh Ashraf Salah (www.islamonline.net)

Allah the Almighty sent Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) to mankind at the time when it was most in need of His message. The whole world was in the total darkness of polytheism and ignorance. It was at this time that Allah chose to send His servant Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) to mankind.

The Prophet of mercy (peace and blessings be upon him) came to enjoin on people chastity, noble manners and characteristics, firmness in faith, kindness to kith and kin, good neighborliness, and abstention from injustice and oppression. He (peace and blessings be upon him) enjoined upon them to consult the Qur'an in all their affairs. He (peace and blessings be upon him) enjoined earning from lawful means and spending in virtuous ways and made everybody equal with respect to the law of Allah. Allah says:

[Say, "My Lord has only forbidden immoralities — what is apparent of them and what is concealed — and sin, and oppression without right, and that you associate with Allah that for which He has not sent down authority, and that you say about Allah that which you do not know."] (Al-A`raf 7:33)

When the early Muslims responded to the call of the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him), they were being severely persecuted by the disbelievers. The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) was opposed by three sets of people: the envious; the arrogant who knew the truth yet denied it; and the misled, ignorant ones. These people exerted all their efforts to stop the spread of Islam:

[They want to extinguish the light of Allah with their mouths, but Allah will perfect His light, although the disbelievers dislike it.] (As-Saff 61:8)

When the torment became severe in Makkah and the idolaters wanted to assassinate the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him), the angel Jibreel (peace be upon him) came to him and said, "Allah has given you permission to migrate to Madinah. Therefore, do not spend tonight in your house, giving them (the idolaters) the chance to get to you." While the idolaters were lying in wait outside the house of the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him) for him to come out — so that they could all strike him at the same time — he (peace and blessings be upon him) emerged from his house reciting the opening verses of Surat Yasin and threw sand in their faces. Allah prevented the idolaters from seeing him and made slumber overtake them.

The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him) and his companion, Abu Bakr (may Allah be pleased with him), hid in the cave of Thawr for three days until the search for them subsided. The Quraish searched for the Prophet in every nook and cranny and followed his tracks until they were at the very entrance of the cave where the Prophet was hiding in. Abu Bakr then said, "If any of them looks down at their feet, they will see us." The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) replied, assuring him, "What do you think about two companions, of whom Allah is the third?" After three days, the two companions found a guide and proceeded to Madinah.

While the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him) was on his way to Madinah during his migration, Suraqah ibn Malik (may Allah be pleased with him), who had not yet embraced Islam at that time, pursued the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) in order to capture or kill him and win the prize money that the Quraish had offered for the Prophet's head. However, Allah Almighty intended that Suraqah would change his mind and ask the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) to forgive him instead. This is the story of how the Hijrah took place and it represented a manifest victory for Islam and the Muslims in that Allah rendered the disbelievers' plots fruitless. Allah says:

[If you do not aid him [the Prophet] Allah has already aided him when those who disbelieved had driven him out [of Makkah] as one of the two, when they [Muhammad and Abu Bakr] were in the cave and he [Muhammad] said to his companion, "Do not grieve; indeed Allah is with us." And Allah sent down His tranquillity, upon him and supported him with soldiers [angels] you did not see and made the word of those who disbelieved the lowest, while the word of Allah – that is the highest. And Allah is Exalted in Might and Wise.] (At-Tawbah 9:40)

Dear Muslims, the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) and his companion Abu Bakr (may Allah be pleased with him) entered Madinah gloriously and honorably. He (peace and blessings be upon him) then moved into a house, built his mosque with quarters for his wives, and started upon a new era full of blessings and victories based on divine support. After this, the Hijrah from Makkah to Madinah became compulsory on every Muslim, until the conquest of Makkah by the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him).

The issue of Hijrah to Madinah was a miracle in itself, for the city at that time had very meagre commerce, infrastructure, and agricultural resources. In fact, living in the city was financially restrictive even for its inhabitants. By any human estimation, immigration to such a city, with all its deficiencies, would cause immense economic and social difficulties, but as Allah the Almighty would have it, the reverse was the case for the Hijrah to Madinah.

This Hijrah caused Madinah to achieve large number of benefits. People now had the opportunity of meeting the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him), learning their religion from him, emulating his noble character, preserving his Sunnah, learning about his public and private life and everything else about the religion of Islam. The Hijrah had a great impact on Islam and the Muslims because Allah bestowed a lot of His blessings on them.

Although the Muslims faced some difficulties during the first days of their immigration to Madinah, they were able to overcome these difficulties through their strong belief, patience, and perseverance. The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) was full of love and compassion for the people in general and their children in particular. After the initial period of hardships, Allah bestowed good things in abundance upon the people of Madinah in all areas of life.

We have all missed out on the reward of making Hijrah to Allah the Almighty and His Messenger (peace and blessings be upon him) during the prophetic era, but there is another type of Hijrah which we can make and which will earn us immense rewards. We must migrate from disobedience to obedience of Allah; shun negligence in religious matters and migrate to adherence; migrate from sins to submission to Allah; migrate from laziness and false hopes to diligence, seriousness, and striving in what pleases Allah; and migration of our hearts from affinity to this mundane life to the love of the hereafter. The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said, "The Muslim is one who does not harm other Muslims with his hands or tongue and the muhajir (migrant) is the one who shuns all that Allah has forbidden." Allah says:

[Indeed, those who have believed and those who have emigrated and fought in the cause of Allah — those expect the mercy of Allah. And Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.] (Al-Baqarah 2:218)

In the Prophet's Hijrah, there are admonitions and lessons for every Muslim, especially of patience and perseverance. Another lesson is that it was the will of Allah to make His Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) perform the Hijrah with means that human beings are well accustomed to, such as riding on a camel and hiring a guide. If Allah had wished, He could have willed that his Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) did the Hijrah on Al-Buraq [a riding animal that the Prophet rode when on his Night Journey to Jerusalem and Paradise], but the will of Allah was that He wanted the Muslims to emulate their Messenger (peace and blessings be upon him) and to aid and assist their religion with whatever means that Allah had facilitated for them. The greatest obligation upon us all then, dear Muslims, is to aid and assist the religion of Allah by practicing it and advising each other and being patient upon that.

The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him) was exposed to several assassination attempts, both before and after his migration. In Makkah, Abu Jahl had attempted to kill him before Allah sent the angel Jibreel (peace and blessings be upon him) to prevent him from carrying out this devilish act. At the Battle of Tabuk, an attempt was made on his life by some of the hypocrites. Even in Madinah, an attempt was made to kill him (peace and blessings be upon him) by poisoning his food, but Allah saved him from all these attempts. This was due to his embodying all forms of worship totally for the sake of Allah and for his sincere dependence on Him. Allah says:

[And whoever relies upon Allah - then He is sufficient for him.] (At-Talaq 65:3)

Indeed, the current predicament of the Muslims throughout the world necessitates that we benefit from the lessons derived from the Hijrah. We must realize that the situation of this generation of Muslims cannot improve except by that which improved the condition of our righteous predecessors: sincere and correct belief, noble manners and characters, absolute trust in Allah, patience, and perfection of acts of worship in accordance with the sunnah.

May Allah make us of those who listen to the truth and follow it, and may He bless, guide, and forgive us all. Ameen.

Alhamdulillah..surat 'posting' telah sampai ke peti surat rumah saya pada 13 Disember lalu. Khabar ini saya ketahui pabila emak memberitahuku selepas saya pulang ke Malaysia. Ini kerana sewaktu surat itu sampai saya dalam perjalanan ke LCCT bersama keluarga saya untuk pergi bercuti.

" Anda telah ditempatkan di Sek.Men.Keb (F) Besout, Felda Besout, Sungkai, Perak. Sila laporkan diri anda kepada pengetua pada 5 Januari 2009. Kegagalan anda berbuat demikian bermakna anda telah menolak tawaran tersebut".
Begitulah bunyinya surat yang diterima oleh saya. Apabila mendapat tahu sekolah tersebut, saya terus berfikir sejenak... nak sangat mencabar, nah! kawasan felda kamu ditempatkan..Saya terfikir, mungkin saya beria-ria mahu ke Sabah dan sarawak untuk berbakti di sana,namun Allah itu maha Adil dan mengetahui.. Jadi di Felda Besout la tempat untuk saya berbakti mencurahkan ilmu kepada anak-anak di kawasan Felda tersebut. Saya menerima tawaran itu dengan redha hati dan mengaggapnya sebagai titik permulaan untuk menjadi pendidik.

Dalam perjalanan dari Kuala Lumpur ke kg halaman yang terletak di Bota, saya sempat meninjau tempat saya ditempatkan. Biasalah...nama dah felda mesti dikelilingi dengan ladang kelapa sawit. Perjalanan dari jalan besar ke Felda Besout 1 mengambil masa 15 minit iaitu sejauh 15 km untuk masuk ke kawasan felda tersebut. Suasana sepi dan sunyi menyelubungi saya sewaktu perjalanan ke sekolah tersebut. Apabila sampai di Felda Besout 1, barulah mata saya dapat melihat rumah-rumah dan suasana perkampungan di situ. S.M.K. Felda Besout tidaklah sebesar S.M.K.Agama Kuala Lumpur sewaktu saya praktikal dulu. Keadaannya sangat berbeza iaitu bebas daripada kesesakan, nyaman, dan tenteram. Pelajar-pelajarnya juga sekitar 600 orang. Saya mengharapkan urusan saya dipermudahkan oleh Allah S.W.T.

Saya juga memohon kekuatan daripada Allah supaya saya terus istiqamah dalam arena dakwah dan jemaah di sana nanti. Saya mungkin akan merindukan suasana semasa saya berada di Gombak iaitu sebagai pelajar UIA dan jemaah PKPIM. Saya mungkin mendambakan kuliah-kuliah kerohanian dan keilmuan seperti Kuliah Hikam Syeikh Ahmad Fahmi Zam Zam, Seminar Ta'dib, usrah, program-program dan sebagainya. Semoga sahabat-sahabat saya sudi mencoretkan segala ilmu yang mereka dapat di kuliah-kuliah atau seminar di blog mereka.

Akhir kalam, setiap perancangan Allah itu ada hikmah disebaliknya. Selamat memulakan tugas kepada rakan-rakan seperjuangan saya - DPLIAN 08 UIA.

Salam Perjuangan..

Pada awal bulan Disember, pelajar-pelajar DPLI-UIA telah mengetahui tempat penempatan masing-masing atau lebih measranya dikenali sebagai ‘posting’. Hanya pelajar Pengajian Islam (Pend. Islam dan Pend. Al-Quran dan As-Sunnah dan bahasa Arab) sahaja yang mengetahui tempat penempatannya, manakala Kaunseling dan TESL pula belum mendapat sebarang berita ataupun surat daripada Kementerian.

Sesungguhnya seperti yang dijangka, ramai yang mendapat tempat di Sabah dan Sarawak! 90% pelajar Pengajian Islam DPLI-UIA mendapat tempat di sana dan hanya 10% sahaja yang berada di Semenanjung termasuklah saya sendiri. Hasrat di hati untuk mengajar di Sabah ataupun di Sarawak tidak kesampaian kerana ditempatkan di negeri sendiri iaitu Perak. Walaupun pada permulaannya, saya mengandaikan bahawa saya terpilih untuk berkhidmat di sana, namun inilah takdir dan perancangan Allah. Allah itu Maha Bijaksana dan Maha Mengetahui. Perancangan Allah itu lebih baik daripada perancangan kita sendiri dan ada hikmah di sebaliknya. Alhamdulillah, inilah masanya untuk saya mencurahkan ilmu kepada anak-anak negeri sendiri yang dahagakan ilmu agama.

Insya’Allah awal bulan Januari 2009, saya akan melaporkan diri di JPN Perak dan akan mengetahui daerah mana akan ditempatkan untuk mengajar. Semoga urusan saya dan kawan-kawan dimudahkan oleh Allah.

Kepada rakan-rakan saya yang mendapat tempat di Sabah dan Sarawak, tahniah dan takziah diucapkan kepada kalian semua. Tahniah kerana hajat rakan-rakan kesampaian untuk mendidik anak bangsa di sana, di samping untuk mendidik anak-anak sana dengan ilmu agama. Saya sangat kagum dengan semangat perjuangan kalian! Persiapkan diri dari segi emosi, fizikal dan rohani. Kekuatan dalaman atau rohaniah itu sangat penting bagi kalian semua. Kepada rakan-rakan yang risau ditempatkan di daerah-daerah tertentu atau pedalaman, usah khuatir.. Allah bersama kita semua.
Takziah kepada kawan-kawan saya yang mendapat tempat di sana yang kini sudah berkahwin (terpaksa meninggalkan suami), yang kini sedang mengandung dan sebagainya. Banyak-banyaklah berdoa insya’Alllah urusan kalian akan dimudahkan.

Akhir Kalam…kepada sahabat-sahabat seperjuangan, selamat bertugas di tempat masing-masing. Semoga perjalan yang baru bermula ini memberikan kita seribu makna dan pengalaman baru dalam menjadi seorang guru yang diberkati Allah.

Salam Perjuangan.


Malam siang berlalu
Gerhana kesayuan
Tiada berkesudahan

Detik masa berlalu
Tiada berhenti
Oh syahdunya

Sejenak ku terkenang
Hakikat perjuangan
Penuh onak dan cabalan

Bersama teman - teman
Arungi kehidupan
Oh indahnya o ooo

Berat rasanya
Didalam jiwa
Untuk melangkah meninggalkan semua

Kasih dan cinta
Yang terbina
Diakan selamanya
O ooo

Slamat berjuang sahabatku
Semoga Alloh berkatimu
Kenangan indah bersamamu
Takkan kubiar dia berlalu
Berjuanglah hingga ke akhirnya
Dan ingatlah semua ikrar kita

Hati ini sayu mengenangkan
Sengsara di dalam perjuangan
Jiwa ku merana dan meronta mengharapkan
Kedamaian dan jua ketenangan wo uwo

Tetapi kuatur pada hakikat
Suka dan duka dalam perjuangan
Perlu ketabahan dan kekuatan
Keteguhan hati berlandaskan iman

Slamat berjuang sahabatku(sahabatku)
Semoga Alloh berkatimu (berkatimu)
Kenangan indah bersamamu (bersamamu)
Takkan kubiar dia berlalu (ooooo)
Berjuanglah hingga ke akhirnya
Dan ingatlah (ingatlah) semua ikrar kita

O o ohooo ho o ohooo


Setelah sekian lama tidak dapat makan bersama, akhirnya Allah mempertemukan saya dengan rakan-rakan dan adik-adik yang dulu pernah bersama-sama saya dalam medan dakwah. Pertemuan yang tidak dirancang ini berlaku di Jusco Wangsa Maju di mana ketika itu saya bersama anak didik saya berjalan-jalan di sekitar Jusco tersebut.

Akhirnya saya diajak sekali untuk makan bersama-sama mereka yang terdiri daripada Sakinah, Azmija, Asma', Mariati, Syafawati, Lina, Akmariah dan pelajar saya Nurul Athirah. Peluang ini tidak dilepaskan begitu sahaja kerana bukan senang untuk mendapat peluang makan di luar! Ditanya mengapa makan di luar? Dengan tersengih-sengih salah seorang rakan saya menyatakan bahawa nak keluar daripada suasana pejabat! Hendak tenangkan fikiran.. Aik? Banyak sangatkah beban yang ditanggung wahai sahabatku dan adik-adikku? Semoga urusan kalian dimudahkan oleh Allah S.W.T.

Walaupun selalu bersua di Baitun Nisa' di Gombak dan selalu makan bersama, tetapi suasana makan di Shakey sangat berlainan! Semua masalah, bebanan dan perkara yang merunsingkan ditolak ke tepi! Itulah hebatnya pabila kita bertemu sahabat-sahabat yang dirindui. Kita dipenuhi dengan cerita-cerita, gelak ketawa, kenangan dahulu dan sebagainya. Semoga ukhwah kita semua berkekalan dan semoga Allah menetapkan hati kita untuk terus dalam medan dakwah ini.

Terima kasih semua sahabat-sahabat dan adik-adik PKPIM. Tidak lupa juga Athirah ( Pelajar saya) yang tidak segan silu dan tidak kekok melayan kawan-kawan cikgunya.
