Allah s.w.t said to his prophet: And We sent no Messenger before you except that We revealed to him: There is none worthy of worship except Me, so worship Me.
None Is Worthy of Worship Except Allah, Muhammad s.a.w. Is The Messenger Of Allah
I think almost all of us know this Kalimah, which also knew as Kalimah Toiyyibah. But how much we understand this Kalimah? Do we believe in it? Yes, for sure we believe in it but believe is still inadequate. We need to believe and apply it in our daily lives. I think most of us know what is Iman…But do we really understand this kalimah? In this world, Muslims have become the second largest population and the fastest spreading religion. But we still weak and depend to the West especially in science and technology field. Why it becomes like that?
Allah s.w.t. says: The believers are only those whose hearts tremble with fear whenever Allah is mentioned. And when His verses are recited to them, these increase their faith; and in their Rabb (sustainer) they vest their trusts. (Al-Anfal:2)
We do believe in God, in Allah s.w.t, but do we obey all His command and apply Sunnah Rasulullah s.a.w. in our lives? That’s why we must revive the ways of Rasulullah s.a.w. and bring all facets of life according to the commandments of Allah.
Abu Hurairah r.a. narrates that Rasulullah s.a.w said: Renew your Iman! He was asked; O Rasulullah, how do we renew our Iman? He replied: Say frequently La ilaha illallah
Rasulullah s.a.w told his companions (sahabat) to renew their Iman even though he already knew that all of his companion will enter heaven. No one can stand against Sahabat’s iman. Yes, we already knew that. Allah s.w.t also acknowledges Sahabat’s iman. But why Rasulullah s.a.w. still ask his companion to renew their iman? What about us?
The Sahabat strove in the manner of prophet with piety, austerity, discipline, self sacrifice and giving preferences to others. Hence, an environment was created in which emerged the model of excellence, who became the elite of the Ummah. The era in which the deeds of Rasulullah were collectively practiced by the Ummah was declared to be the Khairul Qurun (the best period of the Ummah).
So, wake up my friends! The time has come for us to restore back the Sunnah Rasulullah s.a.w. Our beloved prophet said that we need to practice the Sunnah, study Al-Quran enthusiastically and completely follow Islam . Then, the Islamic rules will conquer the world again and of course, we will get reward in akhirat. May Allah bless you readers!
