"Katakanlah: Inilah jalan (agama)ku, aku dan orang-orang yang mengikutiku mengajak (kamu) kepada Allah dengan hujjah yang nyata, Maha Suci Allah, dan tiada aku termasuk di antara orang-orang yang musyrik" (QS Yusuf:108)

THE SIN OF BREAKING FAMILY TIES

The importance to nurture and maintain a family bond  (Silatur-Rahim) is indeed an extraordinary importance in Islam. To treat another with politeness, kindness and to forgive and forget. It is our duty to be discharged without an eye for reciprocity. To all, ESPECIALLY family.

Islam highlighted the importance of family and priorities their interest above others, with the basis of love and respect.

In a narration, Prophet Muhammad SAW said that: “I command all the people of my followers (Umma), whether present or not, and those generations which are to come till the Day of Judgement (Qiyama), …, to maintain family kinship even if they live at a distance of a year's journey.” (Shaykh al-Kulayni, “Al-Kafi”, vol. 2, p. 151.

In another narration, Prophet SAW states that: “ The best person among you is the one who treats his family members best. And I am the best among you to my family”
( Hadith Ibn Majah, On the authority of Abdullah Ibn Abbas)

Islam paid a great deal of attention in preserving family ties, to put one another first and commands us to do good to each other. A sensible and well-balanced family is indeed the very foundation of a happy life. These verses and narrations about family kinship together with many other ones illustrate the importance of this matter in Islam.

In the verses of the Qur'an explaining the notion of dzawi'l-qurba (closest relatives). is: And if you (must) turn away from the needy awaiting mercy from your Lord which you expect, then speak to them a gentle word”. (Q.S. 17: 28).

In another verse Allah the Almighty says: What they should spend. Say, "Whatever you spend of good is (to be) for parents and relatives and orphans and the needy and the traveler. And whatever you do of good - indeed, Allah is Knowing of it."  (Q.S. 2: 215).

The Qur'an also gives high priority to close family/relatives to receive attention (kindness) and prioritized its interests more than others.

A wealthier Muslim is obliged to assist his or her family/relatives, with priority given to the nearest in kin, and then in order of nearness in relationship. A Muslim supports his brothers and relatives in times of need and shares their concerns.

In the Glorious Qur'an we find the saying of Allah the Almighty: "and fear Allah through whom you demand your mutual (rights), and (do not cut the relations of) the wombs (kinship). Surely, Allah is Ever an All-Watcher over you...” (Q.S. 4: 1).

Islam encourages a Muslim to be kind to the family/ relatives even when they are unkind to them, and asks them to continue their relations even when they cut them off. Boycotting relatives and family members falls into the category of a major sin in Islam.
In this case Allah the Almighty says that forbids the breaking of relationship in the Glorious Quran: "So what if you are in power you will make mischief in the earth and break the kinship relationship? They are the ones whom Allah cursed and hears them and blinded their eyes. (Q.S. 47: 22-23).
 
The verse commands us to be cautious of Allah the Almighty or to execute His command and to stay away from His prohibitions. After that Allah the Almighty commands connect relationships and fulfill their rights, and do not break the relationship. While nearly every religion has emphasized good family relations, Islam has taken it to unprecedented heights. It is a duty to be discharged without an eye for reciprocity. A Muslim is required to be kind even to his non-Muslim relatives. Similarly he is required to be kind to even those relatives who are harsh to him.
 
Abu Hurairah (may Allah be pleased with him) said: “The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: ‘Allah the Almighty created the universe, and when He had finished, kinship (al-rahm) stood up and said, “This is the standing up of one who seeks Your protection from being cut off.” Allah the Almighty  said, “Yes, would it please you if I were to take care of those who take care of you and cut off those who cut you off?” It said, “Of course.” Allah the Almighty  said, “Then your prayer in granted.” The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah he Almighty be upon him) said, “Recite, if you wish (interpretation of the meaning): ‘Would you then, if you were given the authority, do mischief in the land, and sever your ties of kinship? Such are they whom Allah has cursed, so that He has made them deaf and blinded their sight.’ [Muhammad 47:22-23].” (Saheeh Muslim bi Sharh al-Nawawi, 16/112)
 
We benefit from the above great Hadith that Allah the Almighty  will take care of those who take care and maintain the ties of kinship and we also learn that whoever cuts the ties of kinship, Allah the Almighty will cut them off. Islam calls for the upholding of the ties of kinship because of the great effect that this has on achieving social cohesion and perpetuating cooperation and love among the Muslims.
 It is reason for not entering Paradise; the Messenger of Allah (prayers and peace of Allah be upon him) said: “No person severs ties of kinship would enter Paradise.” [Reported by Muslim 2556]
 
The Prophet also explained the positive impact on people who make a relationship:
Anas Ibn Malik reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, Whoever is pleased to have his provision expanded and his life span extended, then he should keep good relations with his family. (Ṣaḥiḥ al-Bukhari 1961, Ṣaḥiḥ Muslim 2557)
Maintaining family ties does to increase provision nor entrant the life period as all these are predetermined. BUT it will surely bring barakah and pleasure to Allah the Almighty. And a simple way of achieving this is to treat family/relatives kindly, and go out of his way to maintain relationship with them.
The Prophet (prayers and peace of Allah be upon him) said: “The one who guides to something good has a reward similar to that of its doer” [Reported by Muslim 1893]. Whereupon his life span becomes blessed because of the greatness of his reward when meeting Allah the Almighty.
A rich man, if not willing to help the poor who are not his family, then the anger of the poor is nothing compared to if the poor is his own family.
 
In ancient times there was a poet who said:
"The deeds of persecution from their own relatives are more painful to the heart than to the sharp sword”.
 
Islam encourages us to assemble a community of compassion. Thusly, Islam has decided the most commendable individuals are the family/relatives.
 
In the inheritance law, Islam has decided the remaining parts of the dead as beneficiaries given to the kin, as indicated by the request of closest beneficiaries to the dead.
 
Allah the Almighty says in the Al-Qurah Surah 4: 7:  "For men there is a right of the inheritance of the father's mother and his relatives, and to the woman there is a right of the inheritance of her father's and her relatives, whether little or much according to the appointed portion". 
 
Ali bin Abi Talhah reported that Ibn `Abbas said that this part of the Ayat, "Refers to a man who is near death and he dictates a will and testament that harms some of the rightful inheritors. Allah commands whoever hears such will to fear Allah, and direct the dying man to do what is right and to be fair, being as eager to protect the inheritors of the dying man as he would be with his own.'' Similar was reported from Mujahid and several others. The Two Sahihs record that when the Messenger of Allah visited Sa`d bin Abi Waqqas during an illness he suffered from, Sa`d said to the Messenger, "O Messenger of Allah! I am wealthy and have no inheritors except a daughter. Should I give two-thirds of my property in charity'' He said, "No.'' Sa`d asked, "Half'' He said, "No.'' Sa`d said, "One-third'' The Prophet said; One-third, and even one-third is too much.) The Messenger of Allah then said: You'd better leave your inheritors wealthy rather than leaving them poor, begging from others. (Hadith: Al-Tabarani: 8:19/21)
 
Furthermore, as solid confirmation that Islam is worried about the issue of connection is, Islam requires the individuals who can bear to accommodate or provide for the poor of their family/relatives, the youngsters, the grandchildren: father or granddad and so forth.
 
The majority of Muslims ignored this right, as they did with different rights. Which lead to hatred rather than love and kindness between the family and the siblings in Islam.
 
Cutting family ties is a disease in the heart
 
In addition to explaining the virtue of shilaturrahim, so too the Messenger of Allah threatened the one who broke his relatives with his word:
 
“No person severs ties of kinship would enter Paradise.” (Hadith: Muslim 2556)
 
It is narrated on the authority of Abu Hurairah (may Allah be pleased with him) that a man came to the Messenger of Allah (prayers and peace of Allah be upon him) and said: “I have relatives with whom I try, to have close relationship, but they sever (this relation). I treat them well, but they treat me ill. I am sweet to them but they are harsh towards me.” Upon this he (prayers and peace of Allah be upon him) said: “if it is so as you say, then you in fact shove hot sand in their mouth’s (upon their faces) and there would always remain with you on behalf of Allah (an Angel to support you) who would keep you dominant over them so long as you adhere to this (path of uniting kinship ties).” (Hadith Muslim 2558)
 
What punishment could be worse than the curse and the evil home that awaits those who sever the ties of kinship?
 
Those who cut the ties of kinship deny themselves the reward for upholding the ties of kinship in the Hereafter, in addition to denying themselves much good in this world, which is a long life and ample provision (as we mentioned in a previous Hadith): that the Messenger of Allah said: “Whoever would like his rizq (provision) to be increased and his life to be extended, should uphold the ties of kinship.” (Sahih Al-Bukhari and Sahih Muslim)
 
Hence; o servants of Allah, o you who have believed in Allah and His Messenger, consider your relations with your family/relatives!

Did you observe uniting their ties of kinship, which is obligatory upon you?

Did you treat them with leniency? Did you meet them with happy face?

Did you open your chests at meeting them?

Did you present to them the love, appreciation and respect that they deserve?

Did you visit them during their being well, for having cordiality? Did you visit them during their illness, because of care and being interested in them?

Did you present to them what they need from money and other things?

Dear beloved brothers and sisters, let’s make doa’ from Allah the Almighty to protect us from all evil, to upholds our family ties, to love and most of all to spread peace.

May Allah the Almighty make us strong when someone is behaving unjustly and find peace in the truth of the situation and that Allah the Almighty is enough as a witness?

To the very core I pray that Allah the Almighty will fill our heart with love to one another, strengthen the family bond and see sincerity in one another and become a family again.

When a man asked Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) about how to treat a relative who had harmed and insulted him, the Prophet (PBUH) answered: “Resume your relationship with the one who has broken family bonds with you, grant the one who has deprived you and forgive the one who has harmed you.  Whenever you do so, God will protect you against them”. (Shaikh al-Kulayni, “Al-Kafi”, vol. 2, p. 150).

And Allah knows best!

TRUE NOBLE AND BRINGING HAPPINESS TO OTHERS
(Dedicated to Brother Ali – A true Noble Man)

Before we specify the hadith, take a couple of moments to make this inquiry: who is the noblest individual you know? For what reason do you think he is the most honorable? 

Now imagine if we can help alleviate the hardships of people in trouble, feeding the hungry, releasing people who are burdened with debt and making others happy.

Numerous times, we judge individuals by certain societal criteria and outer elements, however is this truly the most precise method for judging individuals? We should see by reviewing this hadith.

Narrated Sahl bin Sa`d As-Sa`id:

A man passed by Allah's Messenger and the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) asked a man sitting beside him, "What is your opinion about this (passer-by)?" He replied, "This (passer-by) is from the noble class of people. By Allah, if he should ask for a lady's hand in marriage, he ought to be given her in marriage, and if he intercedes for somebody, his intercession will be accepted. Allah's Messenger kept quiet, and then another man passed by and Allah's Messenger asked the same man (his Companion) again, "What is your opinion about this (second) one?" He said, "O Allah's Messenger! This person is one of the poor Muslims. If he should ask a lady's hand in marriage, no one will accept him, and if he intercedes for somebody, no one will accept his intercession, and if he talks, no one will listen to his talk." Then Allah's Messenger said, "This (poor man) is better than such a large number of the first type (i.e. rich men) as to fill the earth." (This Hadith is Sahih. See Book 81, Hadith 36 of Sahih Al-Bukhari.)

“Indeed, the most noble of you in the sight of Allah is the most righteous of you. Indeed, Allah is Knowing and Acquainted.” [Q.S Al-Hujurat: 13]

Narrated Ibn `Umar that a man came to the Prophet and said: Oh Messenger of Allah,which of the people is more beloved to Allah and which of the deeds is so? The Messenger of Allah said: “The most beloved of people to Allah are those who are most beneficial to the people, and the most beloved deeds to Allah, the most High, is to bring happiness to a Muslim, or ease his hardship, or to pay off his debt for him, or to end his hunger. And it is more beloved to me to walk with a brother of mine (in Islam), to run an errand for him than to make I`tikaf (seclusion) in this Masjid (in reference to the Masjid of Al-Madinah) for a month. ( Thabrani in Al Mu'jam Al Kabir No. 13280, 12: 453. Sheikh Al Albani said that this hadith is mentioned as mentioned in Shahih Al Jaami '176).

Al Imam Hasan Al Bashri once sent some of his disciples to help others in trouble. He told his disciples, "Come to Thabit Al Banani, take him with you to help." 

When Thabit was approached, he said, "I'm sorry, I'm sorry." His students then went back to Al Hasan Al Bashri, then they told him. Then Al Hasan Al Bashri said, "O my disciples, do you know that if you walk to help your relatives who need help is better than hajj after the pilgrimage?

Then they went back to Thabit and said like that. Thabit also abandoned the i'tikaf and followed Al Hasan Al Bashri's disciples to help others.

From the above hadith we know how the Prophet SAW strongly advocates to make others happy and let go of their difficulties is better than i'tikaf in Nabawi Mosque for a month.

Nevertheless, usually we don't have a favorable opinion of individuals in light of their great character, taqwa and modesty. Or maybe, we have a favorable opinion of them in view of their riches and status.
 .
The issue here is that riches and status are perspectives that Allah grant a few people with as a test. They are not the indication of extreme achievement all by themselves. 

Allah is The One who gave individuals wonderful bodies as well as riches as a test and Allah needs to perceive what individuals will do with these endowments that He conceded them with. 

This is an update since we regularly fall into this oversight; we get inspired by individuals' outside appearance, degrees, riches, garments/brands, autos, social status… and we accept this as honorability.

If these aspects could expand us in quietude, bring us closer to Allah and want to benefit His deen and serve mankind, then it is an incredible indicator of goodness. However, in the event that these angles are for acclaim among individuals, arrogance, pride, transgression, defiance… and so on, at that point this is an indication of destruction.

When wealth is in abundant take the opportunity to contribute part of what you own to those in need. If you fill their hearts with joy Allah will repay your generosity equally. One thing is true though, in the end you’ll get what you deserve.

“Learn to give without being told. Have empathy to know when a family member, a neighbor or friends are in need. Help them with our resources either with money, time or energy.

Some people may be blessed in worldly possessions, ‘fame and fortune’ but they still feel unhappy inside. And that is the prove that happiness is not measured by wealth, happiness is not measured by luxury, happiness is not measured by fame. The best source oa attaining happiness of the heart and spirit only comes from Him, the almighty Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala.

This is why the happiest of mankind on earth is our Prophet Muhammad SAW, and  why is that? Empathy. Our Prophet SAW would always feel our suffering, and always show kindness, sympathy and compassion towards others. He wanted a safe, generous and emphatic place for his ummah.

As explained in verse 128 of Surah At-Taubah, Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala says that:

“There has certainly come to you an apostle from among yourselves. Grievous to him is your distress; he has deep concern for you, and is most kind and merciful to the faithful”.

How can Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala allow anyone with great compassion to feel grief and sorrow, it would be incomprehensible. There is beyond a doubt to that Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala will bring happiness to those who benefits other the most. especially when it comes from pure and sincere intentions.

Hopefully Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala makes us the people who always help our brothers, put happiness in their hearts, so that Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala gives happiness to us in the world and in the hereafter, Allahumma amin.

Taqwa (taqwa dan takut kepada Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala) adalah peruntukan yang terbaik.

Segala puji bagi Allah, Tuhan Yang Mahapengasih lagi Mahapenyayang, pemilik dan pencipta semua ilmu sejak azali. Dialah Yang Maha Pengampun, lagi maha Pengasih. Dia telah menurunkan Al-Qur’an mulia yang hakikatnya meliputi pesannya, iaitu untuk mengingatkan manusia kepada Allah. Dia menyuruh hamba-hambanya untuk mentaati-Nya dalam segala urusan dunia yang dikeluarkan untuk mereka, lalu menjelaskan jalannya—yakni cara taat—dan menjanjikan surga bagi mereka. Dan aku bersaksi bahawa tiada Tuhan yang berhak disembah dengan sebenarnya selain Allah yang Maha Esa dan tiada sekutu bagi-Nya. Allah menginginkan manusia agar bertakwa dengan sebenar-benarnya, berjanji untuk meningkatkan amalan-amalan mereka dan menghapuskan dosa mereka.

Dan aku bersaksi bahawa Muhammad adalah Hamba dan Utusan-Nya. Shalawat dan salam semoga senantiasa dilimpahkan Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala kepada Rasul-Nya yang mulia, Muhammad Shallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam dan kesejahteraan dilimpahkan Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala kepada para sahabat, keluarga serta orang-orang beriman yang mengikuti jejak beliau hingga yaumil kiamat.

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُواْ اتَّقُواْ اللّهَ حَقَّ تُقَاتِهِ وَلاَ تَمُوتُنَّ إِلاَّ وَأَنتُم مُّسْلِمُونَ
“Hai orang-orang yang beriman, bertakwalah kepada Allah sebenar-benar takwa kepada-Nya; dan anganlah sekali-kali kamu mati melainkan dalam keadaan beragama Islam”. (Surah Al-'Imran: 102)

Wahai orang yang beriman kepada Allah,

Taqwa adalah perintah Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala kepada hamba-hambaNya sekarang dan sebelum dan Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala berfirman,

“Dan kepunyaan Allah-lah apa yang di langit dan yang di bumi, dan sungguh Kami telah memerintahkan kepada orang-orang yang diberi kitab sebelum kamu dan (juga) kepada kamu; bertakwalah kepada Allah”. (Surah An-Nisaa': 131)

Nabi Muhammad Shallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam juga menyuruh para sahabat takut kepada Allah, dan bersabda "Aku menyuruh kamu untuk takut kepada Allah," untuk bertakwa adalah merit iman yang ikhlas. Ia merangkumi semua sebab-sebab yang baik dan kecemerlangan, dan adalah suatu perkara yang mengambil iman dalaman seseorang untuk menjauhkan diri dari apa yang dia takut dan percaya adalah dilarang.

Takut kepada Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala adalah sifat orang yang bertaqwa, dan ia juga meruapakan bukti imannya kepada Allah Subhnanahu wa Ta’ala. Oleh kerana taqwa ini adalah syarat dan landasan untuk umat Islam mendapatkan dunia dan Akhirat, maka tanpa taqwa, umat Islam terumbang-ambing dalam kehidupan. Amalan taqwa pula bukan setakat sembahyang sahaja. Bukan setakat membaca Quran, berwirid dan berdzikir. Taqwa bukan sahaja di surau dan di masjid. Taqwa merangkumi segala perkara yang berlaku dalam kehidupan, di mana saja, baik dalam kehidupan bermasyarakat seharian, dalam ekonomi, pembangunan, pendidikan, kenegaraan, kebudayaan, pentadbiran, kesehatan dan sebagainya. Yang penting, setiap amalan itu ada rohnya, dihayati dan dijiwai. Barulah setiap amalan itu menjadi amalan taqwa.

Ibnu Mas'ud berkata; "Hendaklah Allah Selalu ditaati dan tidak dimaksiati, selalu diingat dan tidak dilupakan, selalu disyukuri dan tidak dikufuri"

Sementara itu, Umar bin Abdul Aziz Radhiallahu 'anhuma berkata: “Ketaqwaan itu bukan sekedar puasa disiang hari dan qiyam dimalam hari atau melakukan keduanya itu. Tapi taqwa itu meninggalkan apa yang dilarang Allah, mengerjakan apa yang difardhu kanNya, Maka yang Allah anugerahkan selebihnya adalah kebaikan”.

Kita kenalah berusaha bersungguh-sungguh dalam hidup ini untuk memiliki sifat taqwa dan untuk menjadi orang yang bertaqwa, ini merupakan konsekuensi dari perasaan takut kepada Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala. Jika seseorang takut kepada Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala, tentu dia akan berusaha untuk membebaskan dirinya dari laknat dan kemarahan-Nya dan caranya adalah dengan mendekati Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala, bukan menjauhi-Nya. Cara untuk mendekati Allah Subhnanahu wa Ta'ala adalah dengan melaksanakan apa yang diwajibkan-Nya kepada hamba-hamba-Nya.

Walaupun demikian keadaannya, kita kena patuh kepada semua perintah dan arahan Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala dan Allah  selalu Mengawasi, Allah Selalu Memperhatikan, Allah Selalu Melihat, maka seharusnya kita menjaga kualiti hidup ini, tentunya hidup sesuai dengan tuntunan Allah dan Rasul-Nya.

Sebagaiman Firman Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala

إِنَّ الَّذِينَ اتَّقَواْ إِذَا مَسَّهُمْ طَائِفٌ مِّنَ الشَّيْطَانِ تَذَكَّرُواْ فَإِذَا هُم مُّبْصِرُونَ
“Sesungguhnya orang-orang yang bertakwa bila mereka ditimpa was-was dari setan, mereka ingat kepada Allah, maka ketika itu juga mereka melihat kesalahan-kesalahannya”. (Surah Al-A’raf: 102)

Sesungguhnya Taqwa adalah penampan menghalang hamba daripada mengingkari Penciptanya Yang Maha Agung. Kesadaran bahawa Allah selalu memperhatikan manusia akan menyebabkan kita meninggalkan perbuatan dosa. Sebaliknya, orang-orang yang tidak memiliki ketakwaan kepada Allah dan tidak takut kepada-Nya, mereka itu bagaikan saudara dan teman setan yang suka menggoda, menipu, dan memperdaya. Orang-orang seperti ini bukan saja menjerumuskan diri dalam perbuatan dosa, namun juga mengajak dan membujuk orang lain agar berbuat jahat, sebagaimana yang dilakukan setan.

Satu lagi cara untuk mencapai Taqwa adalah takut kepada Allah dan meninggalkan perkara-perkara yang meragukan. Terpedaya dengan godaan duniawi, sesetengah orang mungkin memandang rendah isu-isu ini, yang akhirnya boleh menyebabkan mereka jatuh ke dalam dosa.

Berhubung dengan ini,a pa yang dikatakan oleh Abu Darda itu selaras dengan hadis Rasulullah Shallallahu 'alaihi wasallam:

“Tidak akan sampai seorang hamba ke darjat orang bertaqwa sehingga dia meninggalkan yang hal kecil yang mungkin tidak mengapa, kerana bimbang jatuh di dalam yang ditegah Allah. (Riwayat Ahmad dan Al-Bukhari).

Maka dengan sifat taqwa dalam diri seseorang itu, dia sentiasa mencintai Allah dan taat kepada-Nya. Dia sentiasa tunduk kepada perintah dan peraturan Allah. Dalam pada itu pula, dia sentiasa menjauhkan diri dari perbuatan yang ditegah dan dilarang dan yang akan membawa kecelakaan dunia dan Akhirat. Dengan yang demikian, orang yang bertaqwa sering menjaga kesucian jiwanya, yang disirami dengan amal-amal soleh dan bersih dari segala kekotoran dan kemungkaran serta bersih dari sifat yang rendah dan terhina.

Mematuhi apa yang difirman Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala:

وَالَّذِي جَاءَ بِالصِّدْقِ وَصَدَّقَ بِهِ ۙ أُولَٰئِكَ هُمُ الْمُتَّقُونَ
“Dan orang yang membawa kebenaran (Muhammad) dan membenarkannya, mereka itulah orang-orang yang bertakwa”. (Surah Az-Zumar: 33)

Oleh kerana itu jika iman bertapak di dalam hati, Taqwa akan dicerminkan menerusi tindakan dan pertuturan, dengan itu menghasilkan banyak kelebihan. Sebagai contoh, Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala, akan menggantikan kesedihan dan kesusahan seseorang dan akan menggantikan yang lebih baik yang Dia kehendaki, Beruntung sungguh orang yang bertaqwa dikurniakan jalan keluar daripada kesusahan dan rezeki

Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala berfirman:

“Dan barang -siapa yang bertakwa kepada Allah, niscaya Allah menjadikan baginya kemudahan dalam urusannya”. (At-talak 65:4)

Begitu juga, sesiapa yang bertaqwa kepada Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala akan memberikan jalan keluar bagi mereka dalam kesusahan, dan mengantikan kepada mereka limpah kurnia yang banyak.

Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala berfirman:

“..Kepada sesiapa yang beriman kepada Allah dan hari akhirat; dan sesiapa yang bertaqwa kepada Allah (dengan mengerjakan suruhanNya dan meninggalkan laranganNya), nescaya Allah akan mengadakan baginya jalan keluar (dari segala perkara yang menyusahkannya”, (Surat At-Talaq: 2)

Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala berfirman lagi:

وَلَوْ أَنَّ أَهْلَ الْقُرَى آمَنُواْ وَاتَّقَواْ لَفَتَحْنَا عَلَيْهِم بَرَكَاتٍ مِّنَ السَّمَاء وَالأَرْضِ وَلَكِن كَذَّبُواْ فَأَخَذْنَاهُم بِمَا كَانُواْ يَكْسِبُونَ
“Jika sekiranya penduduk negeri-negeri beriman dan bertakwa, pastilah Kami akan melimpahkan kepada mereka berkah dari langit dan bumi, tetapi mereka mendustakan (ayat-ayat Kami) itu, maka Kami siksa mereka disebabkan perbuatannya”. (Surah Al-A'raf: 96)

Taqwa juga merupakan kunci kepada kejayaan di dunia dan di akhirat kerana ia disebut oleh Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala:

“...dan bertakwalah kepada Allah agar kamu beruntung”. (Surah Al-Baqarah: 189)

Oleh kerana takut kepada Allah dan bertaqwa, seseorang Muslim akan dilindungi dari mereka terkena azab dan rasa takut, sehingga mereka benar-benar aman.

Firman Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala:

وَيُنَجِّي ‌اللَّهُ ‌الَّذ‍ِ‍ي‍‍نَ ‌اتَّ‍‍قَ‍‍و‌ا‌ بِمَفَا‌زَتِهِمْ لاَ‌ يَمَسُّهُمُ ‌ال‍‍سّ‍‍ُ‍و‌ءُ‌ ‌وَلاَ‌ هُمْ يَحْزَنُونَ
“Dan (sebaliknya) Allah akan menyelamatkan orang-orang yang bertaqwa (yang menjauhkan diri dari perbuatan syirik dan maksiat) dengan mereka mendapat kemenangan besar (keredaan Allah) mereka tidak akan disentuh sesuatu yang buruk, dan tidak akan berdukacita”. (Surah Az-Zumar: 61)

Orang bertaqwa diampuni dosanya dan mendapat pahala yang besar di sisi Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala. berfirman di dalam Al-Quran:

وَمَن يَتَّقِ اللَّهَ يُكَفِّر عَنهُ سَيِّئَاتِهِ وَيُعظِم لَهُ أَجرًا.
“…dan (ingatlah), sesiapa yang bertaqwa kepada Allah, nescaya Allah menghapuskan kesalahan-kesalahannya dan akan membesarkan pahala balasannya”. (Surah At-Talaq: 5)

Takwa kepada Allah merupakan salah satu sebab utama dihapuskannya dosa manusia. Salah satu faedah taqwa juga menjadi sebab diraihnya pahala yang besar dan yang akan menikmati keistimewaan untuk berada dalam kedudukan yang lebih tinggi lebih dekat kepada-Nya.

Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala berfirman:

إِنَّ ‌اللَّ‍‍هَ يُحِبُّ ‌الْمُتَّ‍‍قِ‍‍ينَ
“Sesungguhnya Allah mengasihi orang-orang yang bertaqwa”.
(Surah At-Tawbah: 4)

Kepada Allah, dengan mengerjakan perintah Allah dan menjauhi larangan-Nya; yang menjaga dirinya dari syirk dan maksiat.

Yakni mereka berada dalam syurga-syurga yang penuh kenikmatan yang di dalamnya terdapat sesuatu yang belum pernah terlihat oleh mata, terdengar oleh telinga dan terlintas di hati manusia, berupa pohon-pohon yang berbuah, sungai-sungai yang mengalir, istana-istana yang tinggi, tempat-tempat yang indah, makanan dan minuman yang lezat, taman-taman yang menarik, keridhaan Allah dan memperoleh kedekatan dengan-Nya.

Oleh karena itu, Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala berfirman:

فِي مَقْعَدِ صِدْقٍ عِنْدَ مَلِيكٍ مُقْتَدِرٍ , إِنَّ الْمُتَّقِينَ فِي جَنَّاتٍ وَنَهَرٍ
“Sesungguhnya orang-orang yang bertakwa itu di dalam taman-taman dan sungai-sungai, di tempat yang disenangi di sisi Tuhan Yang Berkuasa”.
(Surah Al-Qamar: 54-55)

Ya Allah, kurniakanlah jiwaku akan sifat taqwanya sifat mensucikan diri dari dosa. Engkau lah sebaik-baik yang mensucikan.  Engkau lah penjaganya dan pelindungnya dan jadikanlah kami taat kepada-Mu, dan pada Rasul-Mu.

Mematuhi Firman Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala:

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا أَطِيعُوا اللَّهَ وَأَطِيعُوا الرَّسُولَ وَأُولِي الْأَمْرِ مِنْكُمْ
“Hai orang-orang yang beriman, taatilah Allah dan taatilah Rasul (Nya), dan ulil amri di antara kamu” (Surah An-Nisaa’: 59)
