"O Allah! We seek goodness from Your Knowledge and with Your Power (and Might) We seek strength, and We ask from You Your Great Blessings, because You have the Power and We do not have the power. You Know everything and I do not know, and You have knowledge of the unseen. Oh Allah! If in Your Knowledge this action (We are about to take) is better for my religion and faith, for our life and end [death], for here [in this world] and the hereafter then make it destined for us and make it easy for us and then add blessings [baraka'] in it, for us. O Allah! In Your Knowledge if this action is bad for us, bad for our religion and faith, for our life and end [death], for here [in this world] and the hereafter then turn it away from us and turn us away from it and whatever is better for us, ordain [destine] that for us and then make us satisfied with it."

Importance of a good shaykh by Shaykh Abd'al-Qadir al-Jilani Radi Allahu anhu

Al Ghawth al-Adham Shaykh Sayyad Abd'al-Qadir al-Jilani Radi 'Allahu anhu said: You must work hard to ensure that your hearts are not locked out of the door of His nearness. Be sensible! You are getting nowhere. You must seek the company of a Shaykh who is learned in the law [hukm] and knowledge ['ilm] of Allah (Almighty and Glorious is He), and who will show you the way toward Him. Without seeing the successful [muflih], one cannot succeed. If a person does not seek the company of scholars who put their knowledge into practice ['ulama 'ummal], he is a chicken from an egg abandoned by the rooster and the mother hen.

Seek the fellowship of those who enjoy fellowship with the Lord of Truth (Almighty and Glorious is He). What each of you should do, when the night has grown dark and people have gone to bed and their voices are silent, is get up, take an ablution [yatawadda'], perform two cycles of ritual prayer [yusalli rak'atain] and say: "O my Lord, guide me to one of Your righteous servants near to You, so that he may guide me toward You and make me familiar with Your path." The instrument [sabab] is necessary. Allah (Almighty and Glorious is He) was quite capable of guiding [His servants] to Him without the Prophets [anbiya']. Be sensible! You are getting nowhere. You must awaken from your heedless folly. As the Beloved Prophet Salla Allahu ta'ala 'alayhi wa Sallam has said: If someone relies entirely on his own subjective judgement, he will go astray. Try to find someone who will be a mirror for the face of your religion [din], just as you look in the mirror to check the appearance of your outer face, your turban and your hair. Be sensible! What is this crazy foolishness? You say, "I don't need anyone to teach me," and yet the Beloved Prophet Salla Allahu ta'ala 'alayhi wa Sallam has said: The believer is the believer's mirror [al-mu'minu mir'atu 'l-mu'min].

When the believer's faith is sound, he comes to be a mirror for all creatures. They behold their religious faces [wujuh adyanihim] reflected in the mirror of his speech, every time they see him and get close to him. What is this craziness? Not a moment goes by without your begging Allah (Almighty and Glorious is He) to provide you with more than you already have to eat, to drink, and to wear, with more sexual opportunities and more income. These are not things that could increase or decrease, even if you were to be joined in your plea by every supplicant whose prayers are answered [da 'in mujab].

Supplication [da 'wa] will neither increase one's sustenance by so much as an atom, nor reduce it by an atom. This is a foregone conclusion [mafrugh minhu]. You must devote your attention to doing what you have been commanded to do, and to avoiding what you have been forbidden to do. You should not worry about that which is bound to come your way, because He guarantees that it will come to you. Allotted shares [aqsam] arrive at their appointed times, whether they be sweet or bitter, whether you like them or dislike them.

The people [of the Way] attain to a condition in which they no longer have any prayer of supplication [du'a] or request [su'al] to make. They do not beg [in their prayers] to gain advantages, nor to get rid of disadvantages. Their supplication comes to be a matter concerning their hearts, sometimes for their own sake and sometimes for the sake of all creatures, so they utter the prayer of supplication without conscious premeditation [fi ghaiba].
"O '' Allah, endow us with good behaviour in Your company under all circumstances!
[When the believer's faith is sound], fasting [sawm], prayer [salat], remembrance [dhikr] and all acts of obedience [ta 'at] become second nature to him, mingled with his flesh and blood. Then he receives protection from Allah (Almighty and Glorious is He) under all circumstances. The restraint of the law [hukm] does not desert him, not for an instant, while he is on this course. The law comes to be like the vessel in which he sits, as he travels over the ocean of the power [qudra] of his Lord (Almighty and Glorious is He). He goes on traveling over it until he arrives at the shore of the hereafter, at the shore of the ocean of grace and the hand of nearness. Thus he is sometimes in the company of creatures and at certain times in the company of the Creator. His work and toil are with creatures, while his relaxation is with the Creator.
From Shaykh 'Abd al-Qadir al-Jilani, "The Sublime Revelation (Al-Fath ar-Rabbani)," translated by Muhtar Holland (Al-Baz Publishing, Houston, 1992), p. 426-8.
On the authority of Abu Hurayrah r.a., who said that Prophet Muhammad S.A.W. said: Allah SWT said:

Whosoever shows enmity to someone devoted to Me, I shall be at war with him. My servant draws not near to Me with anything more loved by Me than the religious duties I have enjoined upon him, and My servant continues to draw near to Me with supererogatory works so that I shall love him. When I love him I am his hearing with which he hears, his seeing with which he sees, his hand with which he strikes and his foot with which he walks. Were he to ask [something] of Me, I would surely give it to him, and were he to ask Me for refuge, I would surely grant him it. I do not hesitate about anything as much as I hesitate about [seizing] the soul of My faithful servant: he hates death and I hate hurting him. (It was related by al-Bukhari)

“Allah! There is no God save Him, the Alive, the Eternal. Neither slumber nor sleep overtaketh Him. Unto Him belongeth whatsoever is in the heavens and whatsoever is in the earth. Who is he that intercedeth with Him save by His leave? He knoweth that which is in front of them and that which is behind them, while they encompass nothing of His knowledge save what He will. His throne includeth the heavens and the earth, and He is never weary of preserving them. He is the Sublime, the Tremendous.”

: “The Secret” and “The Law of Attraction”

I heard about a book that is very popular, which is called The Secret. I read it and I found that it is mainly discussing a concept called the “law of attraction”, which states that like is attracted to like, and that whatever happens to a person, good or bad, is the result of his thoughts. What is your opinion of this book, The Secret, and what does Islam say about the law of attraction?
Published Date: 2016-10-24
Praise be to Allah
The book The Secret was written by an Australian TV producer called Rhonda Byrne, who belongs to the New Thought movement, whose followers believe in a number of metaphysical principles that have to do with healing and self-development, and how a thought may have an impact on the physical world. This book, The Secret, speaks of these concepts and promotes them according to the principles of this movement. As you said, the book is popular throughout the world and has recently been translated into Arabic. After examining the book and reflecting on its contents, it becomes clear that it contains a number of seriously deviant ideas concerning matters of belief and scientific matters, the most serious of which are the following:
The book promotes the idea of giving up striving and not paying attention to taking measures to attain goals; rather it suggests relying on wishful thinking and dreams. That is in accordance with the so-called law of attraction, which states that like attracts like, and that whatever happens to you in your life, you are the one who attracted it to your life, and it was attracted to you because of images stored in your mind, namely the things that you were thinking of. Whatever you think of, you will attract it to you. The people who follow this principle believe that the idea in a person’s mind has an impact in and of itself on the person’s environment and surroundings, and that by means of his abstract thoughts, he may attract to himself whatever he wants of good things, without striving. They claim that thoughts have vibrations, and that these vibrations emanate from a person’s mind to the outside world in the form of electromagnetic waves, and that these thoughts can attract whatever exists in the universe of good and evil that is on the same wavelength. So if you are thinking positively, you are sending out waves with positive vibrations that will attract positive things to you. If you are thinking negative thoughts, then you are sending out waves with negative vibrations that will attract negative things to you. Undoubtedly these ideas are contrary to empirical science and common sense, and believing in them and acting upon them is contrary to Islamic teachings.
As for being contrary to Islamic teachings, that is because Allah, may He be exalted, has commanded us to work and strive in this world, and He has connected provision to taking measures and using available means, not to wishful thinking and illusions. Allah, may He be exalted, says (interpretation of the meaning):
“He it is, Who has made the earth subservient to you (i.e. easy for you to walk, to live and to do agriculture on it), so walk in the path thereof and eat of His provision”
[al-Mulk 67:15].
With regard to it being contrary to common sense, that is because relying on wishful thinking and dreams will lead to the ruin of the world and to corruption of that which is of benefit to people and in their interests, and it will lead to casting aside all that humanity has achieved throughout the centuries of knowledge, science and civilisation. That is because, according to this theory, the sick person does not need to seek medical treatment, and people do not need engineers, builders and workers. All that the one who needs something has to do is think positive thoughts of what he wants, then ask the universe – Allah forbid – to fulfil his desire without him making any effort.
Those who follow this movement contradict themselves when they tell the sick person who is about to die, “Don’t stop seeking medical treatment.” Otherwise, what their idea implies is that one should stop seeking medical treatment, and hospitals should be shut down, and medical schools should be turned into meditation centres where people can relax and develop wishful thinking and dreams, or what they call positive thinking – and so on and so forth in all other fields. Thus it becomes clear that this movement is contrary to common sense and contrary to what is visible of real life experience. People cannot build sound lives on the basis of such an idea.
The poet spoke the truth when he said:
If I developed wishful thinking, I could sleep all night happily, but wishful thinking is the capital of the penniless.
The book goes to extremes in venerating man and bestowing upon him a halo of sanctity and greatness, as it expresses the belief that man possesses unlimited powers and huge energy, to the point that he has the power to create. So everything that happens to man, good or bad, is his own creation. The book says, for example: “Anything we focus our mind on, we can create it” (p. 141). Undoubtedly this is a serious deviation and is ascribing partners to Allah, may He be exalted, in His Lordship. Allah, may He be exalted, spoke the truth (interpretation of the meaning): Then do not set up rivals unto Allah (in worship) while you know (that He Alone has the right to be worshipped)” [al-Baqarah 2:22].
The book promotes belief in pantheism, which is false, by saying that the Creator and His creation are one and the same, and that that man is God in physical form – exalted be Allah far above that. This idea is reiterated and expressed in many different ways in the book.
The book supports a number of Eastern beliefs and idolatrous philosophies, such as Buddhism, Hinduism and so on. We have seen how the followers of these religions celebrated this book, The Secret, because it spread and promoted the principles of their religions.
The book promotes the idea of focusing on the universe in order to achieve one’s wants and desires. So if you want something, all you have to do is direct your request to the universe, and the universe will inevitably respond to your request. Islam, on the other hand, calls people to focus on Allah, may He be glorified and exalted, for it is to Him that one should turn and ask for what one needs. Turning to anyone or anything else in matters over which only Allah, may He be glorified, has power constitutes shirk – Allah forbid.
The book contradicts belief in the divine will and decree, as it denies that God has foreordained the decrees of His creation and that He decided everything before it happens. The book is in harmony with the view of the extreme Qadaris who denied the divine will and decree, as it says that whatever happens in the universe is not part of God’s knowledge before it happens, and it is not already written and decreed. Undoubtedly belief in the divine will and decree is one of the pillars of faith, without which a person’s faith cannot be valid.
The book promotes selfishness and egocentricity, and calls people to cast aside all Islamic teachings and moral guidelines, and to pursue the desires and pleasures of the nafs, so the criterion for deciding whether or not to go ahead with something is how much it may bring of joy and pleasure, and how much one likes it. So whatever a person likes, let him do it, and whatever he dislikes, let him avoid it, without paying any attention to morals or religious teachings. Undoubtedly this is contrary to Islamic and moral values, for the Muslim is bound by a religious and moral framework, and cannot go beyond it. What Allah has enjoined is obligatory, what He has forbidden is prohibited, and what He has permitted is permissible. What the Muslim must do is adhere to the rulings of sharee‘ah and Islam.
These are some of the deviant ideas contained in this book. Therefore you should avoid it. Anyone who would like to know more details about the reality of this book and the extent of the deviant ideas that it contains may refer to a research paper entitled Khuraafat as-Sirr: Qiraa’ah Tahleeliyyah li Kitaab as-Sirr wa Qanoon al-Jadhab (The Myth of the Secret: an Analytical Reading of the Book The Secret and the Law of Attraction).

Sketsa (untuk renungan sahaja)
(Foto Hiasan semata-mata)

Suatu hari, baru sahaja habis Pok Nik makan tengahari, seorang tua bertongkat mendekati Pok Nik. (Pok Nik namakannya sebagai "Orang Tua Misteri - (OTM)" Pada mulanya Pok Nik menyangka OTM itu peminta sedekah. Tiba-tiba datang OTM dan mengucapkan salam kepada Pok Nik lalu meminta izin untuk duduk di meja yang sama. Bau minyak atar kasturinya semerbak. Memakai jubah unggu baldu. Lalu Pok Nik memperlawanya makan tetapi dia tersenyum dan menolaknya dengan baik.

OTM : "Tuan, ada berapa jenis takdir?" (Selamba bertanyakan Pok Nik)
(tersentak lalu Pok Nik selamba menjawabnya)

Pok Nik : "Ada dua"

OTM : "Apa dia?"

Pok Nik: "Mubram dan Mualak"

OTM : "Bezanya?"
Pok Nik : "Yang Mubram telah tetap - maut, jodoh, rezeki dan yang berkaitan dengannya.
Yang Mualak boleh berubah - asbab syariatnya - antara lain - teguh cita-cita, usaha ikhtiar dan rangkaian doa serta tawakkal"
OTM : "Tuan cakap tadi 'maut adalah (takdir) Mubram?"

Pok Nik : "Ya"

OTM : "Bagaimana jika seseorang itu 'mati hidup semula'?"

Pok Nik : "Itu Takdir/Qada Mualak"

OTM : "Mengapa pula? Tadi tuan cakap 'maut adalah takdir 'mubram'?"
Pok Nik : "Benar Syeikh, tetapi orang yang mati, TIDAK AKAN KEMBALI LAGI - jika dia kembali juga, maknanya istilah 'maut hakiki' tidak boleh diletakkan ke atasnya"
OTM : (tersenyum) "Jadi apa sebenarnya keadaan manusia ini?"
Pok Nik : "Dia diistilahkan sebagai 'pengsan'. Masuk golongan 'hilang ingatan, majnun' - macam orang kena sampuk dan rasuk atau tertidur sehingga lalai menunaikan solat.."
OTM : (tersenyum lagi) "Makanya jika dia 'pengsan' - atau digali kembali kuburnya setelah dipastikan masih hidup rupanya, atau semasa hendak menyemadikannya, tiba-tiba dia bangun? Apa yang perlu dilakukan?"
Pok Nik : "Pertama, dipastikan dahulu itu bukan perbuatan syaitan - maka kena ada yang arif mengenainya. Jika sudah dipastikan dia wajib mandi hadas - kerana dikira pengsan - sudah masuk golongan yang 'tidak sedarkan diri', atau 'lupa'
OTM : "Tadi dia kan dimandikan tadi?" (mandi mayat)
Pok Nik : "Itu sebab dia disangka mati, maka taklif syaraknya sudah dianggap tiada lagi. Tiba-tiba dia 'hidup kembali' - maka kena kembalilah menanggung 'balik' taklif syaraknya - sebab 'masih hidup'.
Sebaiknya, dia mengucap selepas mandi hadas dan berwudhuk. Selepas mengucap dua kalimah syahadah maka dia wajib tanggung kembali 'taklif syarak' ke atas dirinya - jika ada solatnya yang tertinggal, dia kena qadha, jika dia hidup balik pada bulan puasa - maka wajib diqadha puasanya"
OTM : "Alhamdulillah - tauhid, feqah dan tasaufmu sangat seimbang - inilah yang kita mahu"
Pok Nik : "eeh, saya tak reti apa Syeikh"
Cuma termenung sebentar setelah dia menyebut "kita". Lalu dia bangun, berjabat salam, memeluk Pok Nik malah membayar makan dan minum Pok Nik dan beredar. Sesetengahnya pelanggan yang berkebetulan makan di situ adalah jemaah dari masjid yang berdekatan - menoleh ke arah OTM yang berjalan perlahan-lahan ke lorong berdekatan. Pelanggan kedai yang lain malah penjual makanan juga kelihatan terpinga-pinga - rupanya ada di antara mereka sedang khusyuk mendengar dialog Pok Nik dengan OTM. Lalu ada yang bangun mendekati Pok Nik. "Tuan ni Ustaz ke?"
Pok Nik : "Hissshh..mana ada tuan - orang tu tanya soalan, maka saya jawablah - setakat saya mampu - orang tua tu lah yang sepatutnya tuan tanya - bukan saya..."
"Hebat jawapan tuan, kami ni AJK masjid pun belum tentu boleh menjawab soalan itu."
Pok Nik : "Itu hal qadha - qadar tuan - Asas. Juga salah satu Tonggak Rukun Iman, wajib kita imani dan ketahui"
Mereka terdiam dan bertanya "Tuan ni siapa sebenarnya?"
Pok Nik dengan yakinnya menjawab : "Saya adalah seorang Perunding Pengurusan'
lalu tergelak kecil memerhatikan reaksi mereka. Semuanya terdiam sebab Pok Nik memakai baju kemeja dan seluar 'slacks'. Mungkin ada yang menyangka Pok Nik seorang 'ustaz' tetapi tidak pula berjubah dan berserban. Pok Nik hanya senyum - cepat-cepat bangun dan beredar dari situ. Ada yang mengejar Pok Nik nak minta no. telefon, tetapi Pok Nik mengangkat tangan sahaja terus ke kereta. "Lain kali ye..InsyaAllah"
Sampai sekarang pun Pok Nik takut nak pergi makan di situ. Bukan sahaja bimbang OTM tu datang lagi bertanya soalan yang 'tinggi-tinggi' tetapi bimbangkan orang sekitar menganggap Pok Nik ni 'orang pelik'....
(InsyaAllah, di lain masa, Pok Nik akan kongsikan lagi kisah-kisah ini - diharap sahabat-sahabat sudi mendengarnya)

Assalaamu'alaikum wbr.

If you google the keyword "Imam Mahdi", you will bump into countless versions popping out. Reading most of the articles, comments, forums, watching youtube, facebook profiles/notes etc - only a handful of such materials are very scholastic and able to debate/elaborate on the issue clearly. 

While most of the articles/writeups are ironically "nostradamical" (a term I coined based on "self-prophecy" and so-called "analysis" without being substantiated by solid evidence except for some poor interpretations of the relevant Quranic verses and Hadiths). Most of these articles have the tendency towards pathetically attempting (or rather competing with other write-ups) at their level best to ensure that "their predictions are the right ones".

The most typical and 'hillarious' facts are : Imam Mahdi is emerging "this and that year" - (since the late 90s - I've been monitoring that many of these bloggers are the same persons and always 'quietly 'moving the schedule' one or two years ahead of the 'original schedule of the supposed to be "the emergence year" - that they have "predicted") 

It seems as if these bloggers (or book authors) are almost trying to make money (via click ads affiliationships) by gaining 'cheap publicity' and 'sympathy'. Some even manage to attract thousands of followers and the fanatic ones "will plea" to meet the authors and bloggers to know more "secrets". Many people have devoted themselves on this "holy mission" (to seek the Mahdi) but ending up with nothing except wasting their resources, time, money etc.

There are others who even go much 'deeper' (crazier) on some adventure of "delusions of grandeur" by symbolically or directly giving some "secret codes" and "hints" to portray themselves either they are 'the promised one' or 'have got something to do with the Great Imam'. Alhamdulillah, most of them are being caught and punished by the authorities everywhere in the world especially in the Holy Land of Mecca and Medinah. 

Personally, I can understand why 'Mahdi impostors' starting to come out - one after another. It's always about wars, oppression, tyranny and annihilation against Islam around the world.

Surprisingly, most of these impostors; initially; did not mean to proclaim or giving hints leading to the people calling them "The Imam Mahdi". But as the numbers of followers grow, somehow, it gave the 'impostors' some "feeling of superiority and security" (I called it "Narcissistic Personality Disorder" (NPD).

They will start to "connect themselves to some Quranic verses and the Hadiths that are related to the emergence of the Mahdi", speaking of "the 'coincidental' signs in the surroundings and make-believe that only "they can save this world". To worsen things, they will grant any of the followers 'special privileges' including themselves to "drop the practice of Syaria". Ultimately, leading to the births of Cults Movement or Deviationist Teachings!

Those who fall under the trap that I sympathize the most. The modus-operandi is very much the same from one movement to another or from one impostor to another.

The 'followers' somehow will 'close their minds' and 
blindly listen and follow (even swearing allegiance to) 'these lunatics' merely after briefly witnessing :

a) some 'magic tricks' or 'hypnotic spells' or
b) 'fascinated by some Quranic and Hadiths being mentioned'
c) what is merely a great brainwashing technique,
d) without realizing that the possibility of using the "jinns" servicing them (followers failed to see unless those with true faith embedded in them) and

ultimately to complete the circle, the followers will end up being members of a cult. (too late to turn back)

The rest is history : Followers giving away 'alms' under the pretext of some 'jihad contributions' to support the move till they themselves become poor and jobless "in the name of Allah" (so sad seeing their wives, children and family who followed them blindly - may Allah SWT pardon them and show them the right path)

Believe me, the ending of most fanatic cults are never without "bloodshed"! 

Now I am neither going to write about the great Imam Mahdi nor reject him.

As a Muslim, I believe firmly in the forthcoming emergence of Imam Mahdi, restoring peace and order to the world but I do not know the exact day, date and time. What I do also know that Prophet Muhammad pbuh is not a soothsayer (na'uudzubillah), thus whatever the Prophet SAW have said that "tells the future" will always bear symbolic meanings behind them (not literal)

Only when the right time comes, can only Muslims understand clearly what are the real meanings behind such holy words and phrases. The correct interpretation will be revealed by Imam Mahdi's true key followers. (possibly without any instruction from Imam Mahdi himself - just spiritually motivated)

That being said; so far; I'm sticking to becoming a 'normal Muslim' (nothing superior) and not be easily influenced by 'literal interpretation' of some 'so-called Islamic' societies, religious groups, fortune tellers or non-governmental organizations with "black flags" or "blue turbans".

I maybe wrong but I sincerely do not believe that the Imam Mahdi is racial, fight only for a single gender (man's club only), madly murdering peaceful non-Muslims, launching anti-Semitic campaigns against the Jews or he is the head of terrorism.

But I have a humble hunch, he is in fact a gifted and selected by Allah SWT to "make things right" (Yes, it is not like it's going to be 'a perfect world' but good will prevail upon evil)

For now, let's pray that Allah SWT show us the true signs to recognize Imam Mahdi and if we are still alive during that time of the great emergence: that we will become his followers and not his rejectors. Amin

Remember, since he is the progeny of Prophet Muhammad pbuh, Imam Mahdi will be likely boycotted and rejected; the chances are; by the majority misunderstood 'pious Muslims' themselves but Allah SWT will help and guide him through. A fearless man and the greatest diplomatic leader ever born as well.

Most important..'Join Me' in moving on with life as usual according to the Syaria.

Wassalaamu'alai kum wbr.

Kerana mereka (Wahhabi) berjaya menembusi (mencemarkan) bahan-bahan rujukan masjid dengan menyuntik secara halus - fahaman ISIS. Pergilah ke mana-mana masjid di Mombasa dan saya akan tunjukkan bahan-bahan rujukan ini telah disimpan dalam almari (kabinet) masjid tanpa diketahui oleh saudara-saudara kita - ahlussunnah wal jamaah - bahawa satu demi satu, buku-buku mereka telah ditutup dengan fahaman ISIS - Ibnu Taimiyah, Ibnul Qayyim/Ibnul Jaiziyah, Muhammad bin Abdul Wahhab. Kesemuanya mereka ini (ideologi mereka) merupakan punca kepada mulanya ISIS. Kita bimbang anak-anak kecil kita yang belajar di masjid telah diterapkan dengan fahaman ini. Setiap kali anak-anak kita belajar dengan mereka, mereka akan menyebut "semoga Allah merahmati ruhnya") Ibnu Taimiyah, Muhammad bin Abdul Wahhab dsb"...ini merupakan suntikan halus kepada jiwa anak-anak kita agar menyukai pemimpin-pemimpin (Wahhabi) ini.

Assalamualaikum Poknik,

Saya ingin mendapatkan penjelasan berkaitan akad jual beli, seperti yang saya faham, akad jual beli berlaku apabila penjual menyerahkan barang jualan kepada pembeli dengan berkata "saya jual barang ini" dan pada masa yang sama pembeli pula menyerahkan wang dengan berkata "saya beli brg ini". Ini yang biasa dipraktikkan terutamanya di kedai runcit.

Persoalan saya, adakah ini menepati kehendak hukum? Dan bagaimana pula akad jual beli dilakukan dalam perniagaan yang komplek seperti kontrak pembinaan, kontrak pembekalan barangan, dan sebagainya

Ada tak bentuk perniagaan yang halal yang yang tidak boleh dilakukan akad jual beli?

Kalau boleh Poknik tolong perjelaskan berkenaan rukun, syarat sah serta perkara lain berkaitan akad jual beli secara mudah, untuk memudahkan kefahaman saya

Terima kasih


Salam saudara, jawapan Pok Nik adalah bertaraf orang awam dan bukan ulama.

Sememangnya, dalam apa yang kita lakukan hari ini, kalau nak dikira dalam konteks muamalah, masih banyak yang perlu diperbaiki. Apapun, kita buat yang paling dekat, kalau nak 100% betul pada zaman ini, amatlah sukar sekali.

Dalam aqad apa yang terpenting ialah keredhaan 2 belah pihak dalam jual dan beli serta ianya bergantung atas apa jenis perniagaan yang diperkatakan di sini – samada pembekalan khidmat pembinaan sivil, Mechanical and Electrical dsb, atau pembekalan produk (sebagai supplier) atau penjualan produk secara runcit, insuran dan sebagainya.

Secara dasarnya, 3 rukun utama perlu diperhatikan – wujudnya penjual dan pembeli (atau pembekal/klien) yang waras fikiran, produk (atau perkhidmatan) yang harus atau halal diniagakan (Ma’ kud Alaih) dan ijab kabul. Selain itu, hukumnya harus dan mestilah didasarkan kepada pemuafakatan – persetujuan bersama/dua-pihak (based on mutual consent) – namun ijab dan kabul tidak semestinya memerlukan pernyataan lisan.

Sabda Rasulullah SAW : “Sesungguhnya jual beli itu sah jika suka sama suka.”

Sabda baginda lagi : “Dua orang yang melakukan jual beli boleh memilih meneruskan jual beli atau tidak jika kedua-duanya belum berpisah daripada tempat akad.”

Tetapi Pok Nik perlu utarakan satu lagi Sabda Rasulullah SAW yang mungkin ramai peniaga/usahawan tidak perasan :

“Wahai Rasulullah, seseorang datang kepadaku. Dia ingin membeli sesuatu dariku, sementara barang yang dicari tidak ada padaku.

Kemudian aku pergi ke pasar dan membeli barang itu.”

Rasulullah SAW bersabda:

“Jangan menjual sesuatu yang tidak ada padamu.” (HR. Tirmidzi)

Namun, Pok Nik ada merujuk kepada mereka yang faham tentang perkara ini. Kesimpulannya ialah, kita perlu pergi membeli dahulu barangan tersebut, pastikan kita cukup stok dsb, barulah kita menawarkan barangan tersebut dan bukan sebaliknya. Secara ringkasnya :

1. Produk tersebut mestilah dapat dihantar ketika berlaku akad jual beli
2. Masa dan lokasi penghantaran produk telah ditetapkan
3. Produk tersebut telah ditentukan jenis dan kuantitinya

Dengan kata lain, ianya juga berlaku dalam bentuk apa yang kita kenali kini sebagai Purchase Order, Delivery Order dan Agreement. (ingat, yang penting ialah pemuafakatan/keredhaan)

Masalah yang saudara utarakan ialah kemungkinan percampuran dengan unsur riba yang mungkin disembunyikan dalam istilah tertentu. Dari itu, jika kita mengharuskan amalan muamalah dengan aqad yang dinisbahkan kepada faedah – samalah seperti kita menghalalkan yang haram. Ini adalah dasarnya.

Walaupun begitu, Pok Nik bukanlah pakar dalam bidang muamalah cuma spt. Yang dinyatakan di atas, nak dapat 100% betul cara aqad – sememangnya sukar pada zaman sekarang.

Kalau kita ada syak, zhan dan waham dalam sesuatu urusan, perkara utama ialah merujuk kepada ulama yang mahir dalam bidang ini kerana mungkin was-was kita itu kerana kita kedhaifan ilmu.

Tetapi kita sebagai usahawan dan peniaga perlu pula bertanya kepada diri kita, apabila kita perlukan rangkaian perniagaan untuk menjayakan kerja-kerja yang kita jalankan, tentunya kita pasti tidak boleh lari dari mengelak membuat pinjaman atau akad jual beli (perjanjian/agreement) yang mungkin membabitkan yang terbaik bagi kita umpamanya tawarruk, Bai Bi thaman ajil, Bay-inah, murabahah dan sebagainya. Walaupun ada yang masih mempersoalkan Bay-inah kerana mungkin didasarkan kepada hadis tersebut :

Sabda Rasulullah SAW :

“Jika kamu melakukan jual beli dengan cara ‘inah, dan kamu telah memegang ekor sapi, dan kamu rela dengan bercucuk tanam, Allah akan menimpakan kehinaan kepada kalian. Allah tidak akan mengangkatnya sampai kamu kembali kepada agama kamu.” (Abu Daud)

Suka Pok Nik memetik kenyataan yang sangat popular di kalangan mereka yang memberikan penerangan dalam konteks Bay-inah - dari bahan Bank Negara Malaysia

Bai’ ‘inah concept is used in Malaysian Islamic banking system and capital market to facilitate the needs of market players when Islamic financial industry was first pioneered in the country. Even though the majority of Shariah scholars disallow this concept, some of them are of the opinion that it is acceptable as long as all the pillars and conditions of the contract are complied with. Based on this opinion, bai’ ‘inah concept is accepted to be practiced in Malaysia to ensure that Islamic finance is as competitive as its conventional counterpart. Among others, this concept is applied in money market transaction, bond issuance, debt securitization and credit card facility.

Imam Shafie menyatakan:

Bai’ ‘Inah merujuk kepada penjualan sesuatu aset, yang kemudiannya dibeli kembali dengan harga yang berbeza, yang mana penjualan secara tertangguh itu adalah lebih tinggi dari harga tunai (spot)

Dan bai’ ‘inah ini dipersetujui oleh Imam Shafie, Abu Yusuf dan juga sebahagian ulama dalam mazhab Shafie.

Kes ini boleh dilihat dalam konteks penggunaan instrumen pasaran kewangan dan kad kredit.

Apa yang dilarang oleh Rasulullah sebenarnya adalah merujuk kepada keadaan demikian :

Kita menjual barangan kepada seseorang secara bertempoh, kemudian kita beli balik barangan tersebut dengan harga yang lebih murah (dari pembeli) – akhirnya kita meminta pembeli membayar penuh sebagaimana asal harga jualan.

Sepanjang pengetahuan Pok Nik yang masih belajar dalam bidang muamalah ini - mungkin ada silap - kita sebagai penjual tidak boleh membeli kembali barangan tersebut pada harga yang lebih murah dan akhirnya meminta bayaran penuh sebagaimana asal jualan (ini ada unsur spekulasi sebenarnya - jelas ada unsur penipuan dan riba) sebaliknya kita mesti memberikan peluang kepada pembeli untuk menjualnya kepada orang lain.

Pok Nik tidak mahu menyentuh contohnya dengan harapan saudara dan pembaca carilah sendiri contoh perniagaan inah yang diharamkan (jelas terdapat unsur riba) tetapi masih berlaku dalam institusi perbankan dan kewangan (terutamanya money market) - no comments :-)

Selain itu, jual beli cara najasy juga dilarang oleh Rasulullah SAW. (najasy ada kaitan dengan inah di atas - bergantung atas apa jenis perniagaan yang kita bincangkan) contohnya dalam transaksi perniagaan - ada tawaran ke atas produk pada harga tertentu tetapi ada seseorang menaikkan harga tawarannya - walhal dia tidak berminat untuk membeli tetapi ingin menarik perhatian/memancing pengunjung lainnya dengan niat menipu para pembeli (juga berkaitan dengan spekulasi saham dsb)

Sepatutnya biarlah pembeli yang tawar menawar dengan penjual. Najasy juga berlaku dalam keadaan berikut :

Penjual menyatakan "tolonglah saya, saya beli harga (atau harga modal) produk ini dengan harga 'x' jadi saya 'untung' dengan menjual harga 'x' " walhal dia berbohong kerana mahukan pembeli membelinya dengan harga tinggi.

Akhirnya ada satu lagi aqad yang diharamkan iaitu 'aqad atas aqad' maksudnya jual beli di atas akad saudaranya.

Sabda Rasulullah SAW :

“Janganlah sebahagian di antara kamu berjualan di atas jualan sebahagian.”

Contohnya, seseorang mencari satu produk dan dia membelinya dari seorang penjual. Kemudian dalam tempoh 2-3 hari atau lebih, penjual memberikan hak memilih kepada pembeli samada jadi ataupun tidak. Dalam tempoh ini, tidak boleh ada penjual lain yang masuk (undercut  atau potong trip kata orang Melayu) dan menyatakan kepada si pembeli tadi “tak payahlah awak beli barang ini, kerana saya membeli produk yang lebih baik dan harga lebih murah" - perkara ini adalah haram. Melainkan memang si pembeli tidak jadi membeli, maka bolehlah kita menawarkan kepadanya pula.

Ataupun jika pembeli belum membuat sebarang keputusan dalam tempoh yang ditetapkan, tiba-tiba kita berminat untuk membeli barangan tersebut, dan kita berjumpa penjual dan menyatakan bahawa kita akan membeli barangan tersebut dengan harga yang lebih tinggi. Ini juga diharamkan.

Dan dua keadaan di atas banyak berlaku di kalangan usahawan dan peniaga Muslim hari ini - MasyaAllah...sanggup kita menipu sahabat dan saudara kita sendiri - 'tikam belakang' - renung-renungkanlah dan rujuklah pada ulama yang lebih mahir untuk pengesahan.

Wallahu'alam bisawwab


Source : I couldn't recall the source of this article.
He Who created the heavens and the earth and ALL THAT IS BETWEEN, in six days, and is firmly established on the Throne (of Authority): Allah Most Gracious: ask thou, then, about Him of any acquainted (with such things). (Quran 25:59)
In many verses, Quran talks about creating the heavens and the earth in six days. Only in couple of verses, Quran makes it a point to add something else i.e. wama baynahuma, which means "what's between them". My entire fascination and fixation was initially on "six days", whether it was really six days, six years, periods, stages and I never appreciated this word "what's between them". As I grew up and read and started to sort of study, I was really surprised to see that the truly amazing thing in this verse is the word "what's between them".
So I started going back to see what did our scholars say about this word in the tafsir books and most scholars glossed over this word in its entirety and focused mainly on heavens and earth. One or two books of tafsir said "what's between them" means the trees and animals on the surface of the earth must be what Quran is talking about. We can not say this interpretation is wrong but we can definitely say that today there is a better interpretation.
What is that interpretation in my opinion?
It is the notion of what we have come to learn as a product of 20th century science called "Dark Matter".
We know that everything is made of atoms. Atoms are made of electrons, protons and neutrons. Science advances more, then we say even the electrons, protons and neutrons are made of even smaller things like quarks and so forth. Then all of a sudden science discovers that there is another form of matter out there that we are not able to detect with any of our conventional methods at all. Most of the way, we are able to say that matter exists is because it interacts with electromagnetic radiation either it interacts with light or it interacts with X-rays or gamma rays.
Dark matter does not seem to interact with anything that we know about. We are able to deduce its existence simply because it has gravitational force.
Professor John Vacca in his book "The World's 20 Greatest Unsolved Problems" discusses about the mystery of dark matter in its very first chapter because he considers dark matters as the most basic fundamental problem and everything else is less important than that.
MALE (voice-over) : Stars spinning around the center of galaxies were supposed to behave like the planets.
NATARAJAN: With our solar system, you have the sun in the center and you have sort of the planets orbiting around. And since the dominant gravity is that of the sun, the planets that are the outer planets, they are much slower than the planets that are inside. So naturally what people expected
to find was similarly in a galaxy, if you measure the speed of the stars away from the center towards the Edge, you expect it to fall off.
And what Vera Rubin found instead, which actually she measured that, for a spiral galaxy was that the speed stayed the same. As she sort of mapped the speed of the stars from the inside out all the way to the Edge, they stayed the same.
Rubin was the first to pose the question that baffled the scientist ever since. If all the stars in a galaxy moved with the same speed regardless of their distance from the center, then the center could not be the only source of gravity, something else should be exerting the powerful force, something that we simply can not see.
Rubin had every reason to believe that her discovery will bring great excitement. Her announcement that there was dark matter associated with every individual galaxy was received with much skepticism because of far reaching implications it had on the percentage of dark matter in the universe. From her work, she inferred that almost 90% of the mass in a spiral galaxy had to be dark matter.
Rubin's finding suggested that the destiny of galaxies is governed by a vast and inscrutable network. Every galaxy is enveloped in dark matter, invisibly locking all the stars in its embrace with the gravity of its exertion.
MALE (voice-over) : What was the Dark Matter? Steve Hawking one of the leading scientists of the 21th century says,
STEVE HAWKINGS: By its very nature, (cold) dark matter has to be hard to detect. Finding a way to do so is one of the most difficult tasks in physics today.
There are two possibilities. If there is only a fair small amount of dark matter, the universe will continue to expand forever and on the other hand if there is a lot of dark matter, then the gravity will slow down the expansion of the universe and stop in eventually. Then the universe will begin to contract and will end up in a Big Crunch, like the Big Bang reverse.
As Steve Hawkins indicated, the fate of the universe and Allah knows the best, is ultimately determined based on the amount of dark matter that is contained in this universe. If there is no sufficient dark matter, the universe will keep expanding forever. If there is more than certain critical amount of dark matter, that would be enough for the stars to loose some of the energy and the expansion slows down a little bit, that will be enough for the gravitational force to run this process in reverse, the way it initially began.
Scientists have sent space probe to try to define and they call it gamma. Gamma is a quotient.On the top half of the quotient is the total amount of mass in the universe (an easy enough idea). On the bottom half is the amount of mass needed to provide enough gravity so that the universe doesn't fly apart forever. If gamma is greater than one then the mass of the universe is greater than the amount needed to hold it together and the universe will contract back on itself. If gamma is less than one then the mass of the universe is less than the amount needed to hold it together and the universe will expand out through space forever. All the measurements they made fell on the line very close to gamma being equal to one. We don't really have a good handle yet at all on what is going to happen. But the time scale when the Big Crunch will happen will be determined based on the how much dark matter there is.
"Do they not reflect in their own minds? Not but for just ends and for a term appointed, did Allah create the heavens and the earth, and all between them: yet are there truly many among men who deny the meeting with their Lord (at the Resurrection) ! (Quran 30:8)
When Allah says, "Do they not ponder themselves", it means He is giving us a hint. In one of the very few instances where Allah puts in wama baynahuma, which means "what's between them", He linked "what's between them" to "this is for an appointed period". In my mind what interesting way of looking into this verse is that Allah may be giving us a hint and Allah knows the best that the dark matter is indeed going to determine this "ajal' meaning "how long it would last". Allah further says, despite all of these so many people do not believe that they are going to meet God.
Steve Hawking believes in Big Crunch whereas other scientists believe that the universe will keep expanding. (img:2450103061715)
Allah says in the Quran, "The Day that WE ROLL UP THE HEAVENS LIKE A SCROLL ROLLED UP FOR BOOKS (COMPLETED) (completed), - even as We produced the first creation, so shall We produce a new one: a promise We have undertaken: truly shall We fulfill it.." (Quran 21:104)
In the past, science was not developed as we have today and hence tafsirs could not explain this verse the way we described. Hence based on the Quranic verse it is evident that the Universe will contract and Allah knows the best.
