"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."


عَنْ عُمَيْرِ بْنِ هَانِئٍ الْعَنْسِيِّ ، قَالَ : سَمِعْتُ عَبْدَ اللَّهِ بْنَ عُمَرَ ، يَقُولُ : كُنَّا قُعُودًا عِنْدَ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ ، فَذَكَرَ الْفِتَنَ فَأَكْثَرَ فِي ذِكْرِهَا حَتَّى ذَكَرَ فِتْنَةَ الْأَحْلَاسِ ، فَقَالَ قَائِلٌ : يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ وَمَا فِتْنَةُ الْأَحْلَاسِ ؟ قَالَ : ” هِيَ هَرَبٌ وَحَرْبٌ ، ثُمَّ فِتْنَةُ السَّرَّاءِ ، دَخَنُهَا مِنْ تَحْتِ قَدَمَيْ رَجُلٍ مِنْ أَهْلِ بَيْتِي يَزْعُمُ أَنَّهُ مِنِّي ، وَلَيْسَ مِنِّي ، وَإِنَّمَا أَوْلِيَائِي الْمُتَّقُونَ ، ثُمَّ يَصْطَلِحُ النَّاسُ عَلَى رَجُلٍ كَوَرِكٍ عَلَى ضِلَعٍ ، ثُمَّ فِتْنَةُ الدُّهَيْمَاءِ ، لَا تَدَعُ أَحَدًا مِنْ هَذِهِ الْأُمَّةِ إِلَّا لَطَمَتْهُ لَطْمَةً ، فَإِذَا قِيلَ : انْقَضَتْ ، تَمَادَتْ يُصْبِحُ الرَّجُلُ فِيهَا مُؤْمِنًا ، وَيُمْسِي كَافِرًا ، حَتَّى يَصِيرَ النَّاسُ إِلَى فُسْطَاطَيْنِ ، فُسْطَاطِ إِيمَانٍ لَا نِفَاقَ فِيهِ ، وَفُسْطَاطِ نِفَاقٍ لَا إِيمَانَ فِيهِ ، فَإِذَا كَانَ ذَاكُمْ فَانْتَظِرُوا الدَّجَّالَ ، مِنْ يَوْمِهِ ، أَوْ مِنْ غَدِهِ ” أبو داود

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.”

SELOKA BERSATU (sumbangan Webmaster PGSSAJKM - geocities.com/pgssajkm/home.html)

Jerihnya sufi dan para pahlawan,
Golongan mahir dan para cendekiawan,
Membina kukuh kesatuan ini…
Sehingga kekal ke hari ini…

Sekian lama mereka pergi,
Lihatlah apa terjadi kini…
Kita ini bagaikan mati!
Bangkitlah semula hidupkan diri!

Lihatlah terbentang di hadapan kita,
Begitu besar luasnya dunia,
Menanti untuk kita manfaati,
Dengan akal bijak bestari
Dipandu nur yang suci dan murni,

Dugaan, cabaran, nikmat dan rezeki,
Adalah makanan hidup ini,
Samudera dalam kita selami,
Kalau jatuh, bangunlah lagi
Kejarlah semula kabilah ini,
Merdekakan lagi jiwa dan jasmani,
Yang sekian lama makin dijajahi!


Kerana kita manusia biasa
Kerana kita mengaku hambaNya
Tanda tunduk akan perintahNya

Taatilah Allah, Rasul dan Ketua
Taatilah Guru, Ayah dan Bonda
Kepada Allah bertaqwa kita,
Agar dapat mengurus membeza,
Akal dan nafsu yang kurang sempurna,
Semoga mendapat darjat yang mulia.

Ketua adalah pembawa panduan,
Kitalah sebenar yang melaksanakan,
Janganlah jadi hanya penantian,
Takut nanti tinggal impian!

Jutaan syarahan telah disampaikan,
Ribuan amalan telah dilakukan,
Marilah pula berbuat tindakan,
Agar pulangan dapat dihasilkan,
Tidak terhad pada perkataan.

Untuk diri, keluarga dan ahli,
masyarakat, daerah serta negeri,
negara, dunia, sejagat dan akhirat
Alangkah besarnya bakti dan berkat

Sesama membina istana kebajikan,
Sesama meruntuh kota kejahatan!

Andai akal belum sempurna,
Andai ilmu kurang di dada,
Carilah makna segala kefahaman,
Tidaklah pula sehingga terbeban,
Amalkan ilmu sekadar kemampuan,
Allah jua kita serahkan,
Tanpa halangan tanpa galangan.

Untuk arifin yang lama bersemadi,
Keluarlah dari persembunyianmu ini!
Mari bersama memimpin kami,
dengan pengalaman yang telah dipelajari.

Jika terilham kaedah dan cara,
Zahirkan ia menerusi suara,
Iman tak kenal tua dan muda,
Besar dan kecil tiada dikira,
Selagi ada kebajikan niatnya,
Mari SATUKAN bersama-sama,
supaya lebih berlipat ganda.

Bagi yang masih besar diri,
Tepuk dada tanyalah hati,

Sehingga bila terus begini?
Berbulan berlalu menjadi tahunan,
Matlamat anda manakah kesudahan?
Keluarlah dari penjara khayalan!

Jangan pandai menafsir sendiri,
Jangan pula membisu sepi,
Jangan mudah berpuas hati,
Akibatnya berat memakan diri,

Janganlah segan janganlah malu,
Salah dan silap tentunya berlaku,
Marilah mengaku kelemahan diri,
Supaya dapat sesama perbaiki.

Andai masih tidak mengerti,
Mengapa terjadi semuanya ini,
Pelajaran asal semaklah kembali,
Melihat semula pada yang asli.

Elakkan juga jumud kumpulan,
Dengarlah juga pendapat luaran,
Mungkin dapat jadikan panduan,
Bukan hanya ikut-ikutan…

Jauhi kita segala pergeseran,
kerana ini pemecah perpaduan.

Cuba elakkan kepentingan peribadi,
Belajar mendekati kepentingan ahli,
IKHLASkanlah segala pengorbanan ini,
Agar berterusan tanpa berhenti.

Sejahtera diri, keluarga, dan ahli
masyarakat, daerah serta negeri,
negara, dunia, sejagat dan akhirat

Ucapkan semula Kalimah Syahadah,
Agungkan kembali Qur’an dan Sunnah,
Jadikan petua Ijmak dan Qiyas,
Jadilah Ahli Sunnah wal Jamaah,

Tetapkan Iman, Islam dan Ihsan,
Tauhid, Feqah, Usul dan Kesufian.

Biasakan diri dengan latihan,
Jangan sampai tiada pekerjaan,
Tingkatkan terus ilmu pengetahuan,
Ibadat amalan dilupa jangan,

Jangan mudah menyerah kalah,
Usahakan hingga dapat istiqamah,
Cari Mawaddah waRahmah wasSakiinah,
Kita pasti akan berjaya,
Khalifah juga jadinya kita.

Hamba berkata mengingati diri,
tiadalah hamba membangga diri,
Hamba terasa masih rapuh,
kalian mungkin lebih ampuh,
jangan ampuh bertukar angkuh!
rapuh pula perlu perkukuh!

Hamba sedar seloka ini,
Pasti ramai juga bantahi,
di mana akhirnya kita ini,
bila ADA dirempuh-rempuhi,
bila TIADA dipohon-pohoni.

Tentunya ada yang pandai berkata,
Bilangan ramai di majlis kita,
Semakin bertambah setiap masa,
Bukankah ini penyatuan nyata?

Kenapa memandang mudah sekali?
Bilangan ramai semuakah memahami?
Jika benar kenapa terjadi?
Bertambah ramai, bertambah yang lari!

Bacalah semula seloka ini,
walau pahit berkali ulangi,
semoga menjadi penawar hati,
semoga semuanya bangkit kembali.

Namun kita tidak berjanji,
Masa depan yang belum pasti,
Jika dituruti seloka ini,
Semua masalah dapatkah diatasi?

Tetapi sejarah bagaikan tahu,
walaupun semangat tidaklah padu,
Jika jemaah BENAR BERSATU!
kekuatan pasti berada di bahu!

Yang rahsia kan jadi nyata,
Yang lemah akan berbisa,
Usahalah terus sabar menanti,
Kemenangan akan menjengah nanti!

Mari bersama kita lalui,
Merasai keagungan kembara ini,
walaupun masih JAUH destinasi,
berjalanlah kita TANPA henti…
