Everything we do in this life is all about what we procure in the hereafter.

On the account of Abu Hurairah who reported that Rasulullah (sallalaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) said to Bilal:

“Bilal, tell me which act you did at the time of the morning prayer for which you hope to receive good reward, for I heard during the night the sound of your footsteps before me in Paradise.”

Bilal (radiyallaahu ‘anhu) replied:

“I did not do any act in Islam for which I hope to get any benefit, but this, that when I perform complete ablution during the night or day I observe prayer with that purification, what Allah has ordained for me to pray.”

This hadith is a Sahih Muslim. Based on what is revealed and several sources, Bilal maintained his purity (by either taking ghusl or wudhu’) throughout the day. Whenever he does so, he would perform a prayer.

Only this small act of deed was enough for the Prophet (sallalaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) to hear Bilal’s footsteps in the heaven. Amongst others, the Prophet (sallalaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) also saw specific Paradise built for several of the sahabah during his ascension to the seven heavens.

This serves as a reminder to us that our deeds in this life will determine our rewards in the hereafter. What have we so far in Allah’s Paradise?

Apa yang penting? Kerjasama!

Apa yang penting? Kerjasama!

Kami tak besar dan kami tak kuat…

Begitulah celoteh anak sulung yang kadang-kadang suka menyanyi lagu kegemarannya dalam cerita Wonder Pets. Pada mulanya tak berapa tangkap apa yang diucapnya, namun setelah mendengar dengan teliti, barulah perasan. Itu pun mujur pengarang pernah mendengar lagu Wonder Pets di kaca TV.

Sambil melompat-lompat di atas katil, ungkapan-ungkapan tadi dinyanyinya semahu hati. Kami yang melihatnya cukup terhibur. Sudah besar anak Ummi dan Abi. Subhaanallah.

Kecil-kecil cili padi. Walaupun nyanyiannya tidaklah sehebat mana – masih ada telornya, mesej yang tersurat cukup kuat. Apatah lagi jika datang daripada seorang budak kecil yang tak mengerti apa-apa. Sekurang-kurangnya, mereka yang sudah besar dan matang dapat mengambil iktibar.
