Masjid al-Hijrah, Tempe, Sydney, NSW

الحمد لله الذي فرض علينا الصيام وسنّ لنا القيام، أشهد أن لا إله إلا الله ذو الجلال والإكرام، وأشهد أن محمّداً عبد الله ورسوله الذي أعطي جوامع الكلم ونفائس الحكم، فاللهمّ صلّ وسلم وبارك على هذا النبيّ سيد الخلائق والأنام، وعلى آله وأصحابه الكرام. فيا عباد الله أوصي نفسي وإياكم بتقوى الله فقد فاز المتقون. قال تعالى في محكم تنزيله: ( شَهْرُ رَمَضَانَ الَّذِي أُنزِلَ فِيهِ الْقُرْآنُ هُدًى لِّلنَّاسِ وَبَيِّنَاتٍ مِّنَ الْهُدَىٰ وَالْفُرْقَانِ ۚ ) ، طبتم وطاب ممشاكم وتبوّأتم من الجنة منزلا، آمين.

 

My Muslim Brothers rahimakumullah

We thank Allah for bringing us these beautiful days, Ramadan to improve ourselves, giving us the opportunity to make changes and taubah . Salutation accompanied by greetings to the Prophet Muhammad PBUH, the prophet who trusted his people who delivered all the treatises from his Lord with full honesty and intelligence.

My Brothers in Islam, Dear Muslims rahimakumullah

The presence of Ramadan encourages improvement for everyone. Regardless of the past. If someone is good, then he will try to be the best. If he has ever committed sin and evil, then this is the time to stop and immediately improve himself. This is what is called the spirit of heroism.

Being a hero is not required to be an extraordinary person. Like the superhero described by Hollywood. A hero is not those who have no shortcomings. It is not those who do not have limitations. Nor are the people who have extraordinary powers. A hero is those who wants to improve themselves. A hero is an ordinary person who has extraordinary ideas. When the world measures everything with matter, it pursues non-matter, pursuing the pleasure of Allah.

Despair is something that is not permitted by Allah. Nothing cannot be fixed. Allah published the dawn and presented the morning to drive away the darkness of the night. Because of that He said in the Quran Surah at-Takwir verse 18 (وَالصُّبْحِ إِذَا تَنَفَّسَ) For the time of dawn when breathing. It is as if dawn is His living being. As every sunrise brings new breath for all of us and for every single one of us who wants to accept the opportunity of goodness, regardless of their past.

Ramadan comes with hope. The merits are multiplied in them. The door of the hell fire is closed tightly, so that as many people as possible do not look at actions that can drag him into hell.

Fasting which is carried out in full faith will melt away sins and mistakes, as Prophet Muhammad has mentioned in one of the hadith. (من صام رمضان إيمانا واحتسابا غفر له ما تقدم من ذنبه)

Night prayers, qiyamullail are also like that. Zakah, sahadaqah is a practise to share happiness. Du’a and Zikir is also an action to get closer to a deeper bond with Allah SWT.

Allah also teaches every Muslim to look back at his family. In order for the love that God has bestowed on him to care for and grow, he cleans it with harmony and gratitude. How wonderful, if Ramadan is the month of family evaluation, for all family members.

Loss and harm to those who meet Ramadan, but their sins are not forgiven by Allah. That is a sign that he did not take advantage of the opportunity that Allah gave to them. The spirit of Ramadan heroism is needed to improve contemporary problems that is faced by humans. It is true that today humans have problems, namely competition with robots and technological advances, humans face the problem of biological science discoveries that are not limited to morals and ethics. Humans have environmental and climate problems caused by damage made by humjlui00ans themselves. These problems are actually related to mentality. The main problem for humans is not robots or technology, nor smartphones, nor weather or nature. The main problem of a man is himself. The human problem is when he is submissive to the greed of his lust. So, people who basically have the nature of goodness turns to greed, ambitious and have no concern for their environment. Both the environment as human beings or the natural environment. Allah gives special time to every human being, daily at every third night, weekly at every Friday and monthly at Ayyamul Baydh, which is every thirteenth, fourteenth and fifteenth of every month. However, many missed the opportunity. So, Allah gives a special time once a year. So that humans stop momentarily evaluating themselves. In order for him to be able to carry out Allah’s mandate to be a leader in the world, guard and care for nature. Honesty, discipline, sincerity, caring, love and affection and being big-spirited being forgiving are important lessons from Allah this month.

Hopefully, every alumni of Ramadan will become a true hero. Heroes who are ready to transform make social changes for the better.

A believer who succeeded in Ramadan is targeted at achieving piety with the best standards of good people in his environment. Fasting trains him to restrain himself, is able to calculate the priority of his charity, focus on his target. Its fast forms a high character of discipline combined with honesty and a serious ethos. His prayer really inspired him to leave bad and vile things. His zakah and shadaqah make him have a deep sense of empathy and sympathy for others, concern for the environment. At the same time motivating him beyond helplessness, he becomes a person who is able to give and share. Al-Quran has become the spirit of this month, lailatul qadar transformed into the best night that exceeded a thousand months. So, the interaction with the Koran is increased to achieve the infinite virtues. Achieve more than a thousand communities around it. He gets the good of the world and the hereafter. His prayer and dzikir made him a rabbaniy-oriented person, always related to his heart with Allah. Have high trust because they feel supported by Allah. Has an extraordinary ethos because it does not lack in enthusiasm. He comes with a spirit to make it easy and lighten others. He transformed into a person who was liked but did not expect praise from others. His hands are light, helpful and helpful because they are often used to count the remembrance of Allah. The light oral said well, because it was always wet murmuring remembrance to Allah. His eyes were kind and friendly because he often read verses of the Al-Quran, his ears sorting out good things to hear and responding quickly if there was anything that needed to be corrected. In the midst of his family, wife, children and even his parents, he became an inspiration for kindness and harmony. Tenderness and affection bring the power of love in his home.

His fasting makes him stay away from bad words. Because the bad words can hurt some ones feeling. So, he will not be able to achieve contentment of fasting Ramadan.

This is the person who deserves to be a hero. Heroes who are able to subdue themselves before others. Heroes who are able to sacrifice without limits. Treasure and soul, belongs to Allah, which he always uses in accordance with His direction May this year’s Ramadan provide positive energy for change for our nation and Ummah. Presenting heroes who are able to lead and inspire the environment. Being a solution to the presence of various challenges and problems. Hopefully all our good deeds will be accepted by God and become the inspiration for the birth of the next goodness. Aamiin

معاشر المسلمين رحمكم الله…

أوصي نفسي وإياكم أن نشكر الله تعالى على منحه لنا هذه الأيام المباركة الجميلة. حين يتيسر لنا الصيام والقيام وتلاوة القرآن  والأذكار والصدقات والأعمال الصالحة الأخرى. هذا الشهر الكريم هو عطاء ورحمة لكل أمة محمد صلى الله عليه وسلم، وفرصة لتحسين ماضينا. إذا كان الماضي مليئاً بالتفوّق الحسنات فهذا فرصة لترقية الحسنات ونشرها وسط المجتمع الأوسع. و إذا كان الماضي عبارة عن مجموع الأخطاء والذنوب فهذا فرصة لتكفيرها بالتوبة.

هذا الشهر الكريم يُخْرِج ويُنْتِج بَطَلاً. البطل الحقيقي لا كالبطل الذي صوّره أفلام هوليوود. هذا البطل هو شخص عادي، ولكنه عنده همة عالية وطموحات كريمة لخدمة مجمتمعه. فلربما هذا الشخص له ماضي، ولكنه تعايش له بالحكمة. أدرك أنّ ربه غفور رحيم فلا داعي للحزن بــأخطاء الماضي فهو بذلك الإدراك يتوب إلى الله متابا ويستغفره ليلا ونهارا. ولا داعي للخوف بالمستقبل، فكل مستقبل غائب وفي يد الله قضاءه.

إذن، البطل ليس شخصا ذا قوة جسدية خارقة مثل “سوبرمان” لمواجهة أعباء الحياة الإنسانية ومشاكلها، بل البطل هو شخص عادي الذي يؤمن قوّة ربه الذي رباه وأعطاه العقل ليفكر ويتفكر ويسخره له لمواصلة درب الحياة.

فلله نفحات، يومية وأسبوعية وشهرية وسنوية، حيث نزل سبحانه وتعالى في سماء الدنيا في آخر كل ثلث الليل قائلاً “فهل من مستغفر  فأغفر له، فهل من سائل فأعطيته … الحديث”، فكل جمعة لها ميزة حسنة نعرفها على لسان سيد المرسلين “ما من يوم الجمعة إلا وفيه ساعة الإجابة”، وكل شهر سن لنا صيام أيام البيض. ولكن الناس في غفلة من هذه النفحات الغالية. فالله سبحانه وتعالى أخضر لنا هذا الشهر الكريم المبارك، إبرازاً لرحمته تجاه الأمة الإسلامية، ففيه أنزل القرآن معجزة كبرى وخالدة، ففيه ليلة القدر التي قدرها خير من ألف شهر. التعايش والعلاقة مع القرآن تولّد البركة والخيرية، فجبريل عليه السلام حامل الوحي والقرآن أصبح أشرف الملك وإمامهم، ورسول الله محمّد صلى الله عليه وسلم متلقي القرآن هو أشرف الخلائق والبشر، فالليلة التي أنزل فيها القرآن أصبح أشرف الليال، فشهر رمضان الذي أنزل فيه القرآن هو الشهر الكريم.

فهذا الشهر فيه روح الخيرية والمتخرج منه يُرْجا أن تكون له خيرية وصدارة لقيادة حضارة الإنسان ومواجهة المشاكل. مشاكل الإنسان ليست تقدّم التكنولوجيا أو البيئة، فالمشكلة هي معنوية الإنسان. فهو مسؤول أصلا لإعمار الأرض والمحافظة على البيئة،  وليس الاشتغلال بها اتباعا لهواه. ظهر الفساد في البحر والبر بما كسبت أيدي الناس، بسبب سوء مسؤوليتهم.

فهذا الشهر تمرين لكل مسلم في الإمساك عن الحلال حتى لا يتجاوز الحد بالإسراف فضلا عن المكروهات والمحرمات. بصيامه يتملك على نفسه ويسخر في ما يرضي الله وينفع غيره. وبصلاته ينهى عن الفخشاء والمنكر. وبزكاته وصدقاته يبرز التكافل والشعور بالتعاطف والاهتمام بالضعفاء، وبدعائه وأذكاره لله يكون شخصا قوّيا دوام التواصل مع الله. فرمضان يعلمه ليعود إلى أسرته بالمودّة والألفة لتتقوّى بنية المحبة في البيت الذي تأسس روح القيادة للبشرية والتربية الذاتية القوية، انطباقا لدعاء عباد الرحمن في سورة الفرقان ( وَالَّذِينَ يَقُولُونَ رَبَّنَا هَبْ لَنَا مِنْ أَزْوَاجِنَا وَذُرِّيَّاتِنَا قُرَّةَ أَعْيُنٍ وَاجْعَلْنَا لِلْمُتَّقِينَ إِمَامًا ) . فالمسلم بصومه يحفظ لسانه ويمسك من أن يؤذي مشاعر الآخرين، لأنه يريد أن يتذوّق حلاوة الطاعة.

بهذه المواصفات يكون هذا الشخص العادي المسلم بطلا لأسرته ومجتمعه، يصبح حلا لمشاكلهم، يورث الهمّة العالية بمعنويته ويتجنب من اليأس في الحياة.

نسأل الله رب العرش الكريم أن يتقبل أعمالنا وأن يغفر لنا ذنوبنا، وأن يعيد لنا وللأمة الإسلامية الخيرية واليمن والبركات، اللهم آمين.

أقول قولي هذا، جعلنا الله وإياكم من الذين يستمعون القول فيتبعون أحسنه، بارك الله لي ولكم في القرآن الكريم ونفعني وإياكم من الآيات والذكر الحكيم، فأستغفر الله العظيم لي ولكم ولسائر المسلمين، استغفروه إنه هو الغفور الرحيم.
