Rahsia Kekuatan Hati


Assalamualaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh dan salam sejahtera

Satu hari dalam perjalanan pulang dari kerja terdengar satu lagu omputeh kat IKIM.. lagu yang penuh semangat dan memberi semangat.. bila diamati bait2 lagunya, memang sangat kena dengan cabaran yang kita hadapi zaman sekarang ni. Dan apa yang membuatkan kita kuat untuk menghadapai cabaran - cabaran itu serta mempertahankan akidah dan pegangan kita adalah hati yang kuat.

Sebelum kita bincangkan apakah rahsia hati yang kuat, mari kita layan dulu lagu ni.





STAND ALONE

Chorus
I am not afraid to stand alone.
I am not afraid to stand alone. If Allah is by my side
I am not afraid to stand alone. Everything will be alright
I am not afraid to stand alone. Gonna keep my head up high

Single mother raising her children
Now she’s a Muslim
Started praying and wearing a headscarf
Was a healing for her heart

Struggling with no one to lean on
But with prayer she would be strong
Got a job but then she was laid off
Got a better education and it paid off

Got a call for a job that she dreamed of
Close by, great pay -she was in love – they said…
They brought her in, said she’s the number one pick
You got the job, but you gotta lose the outfit”

It’s a tough position that they put me in
Cause Ive been struggling with my two children
But I’ll continue looking for a job again
My faith in my religion now will never bend

Chorus

Peer pressure, they were insisting
And I was resisting
Some days I felt I would give in
Just wanted to fit in

I know when I’m praying and fasting’
They be teasing and laughing
So I called to my Lord for the power
For the strength every day, every hour…

Then one day there’s a new Muslim teacher
Single mom and the people respect her
Just seeing her strength I get stronger
They can break my will no longer

You don’t see me sweating when they’re jokes’re cracking
Never see me cussing’ with my pants saggin’
I aint never running yo I’m still standing
I ride with Allah to the very end

Chorus

I am not afraid to stand alone…

Now, I’m a tough one, who can bear their blows
The rest play dumb, they don’t dare say no
Scared of being shunned, but its clear they know
I aint never gonna run, I aint scared no more.

Man, these sisters be resolute
Never stressed when the rest say they wasn’t cute
And the get the respect of the other youth
Come best with the dress yo and that’s the truth

These sisters are strong gonna hand it down
So me I’m a brotha gotta stand my ground
I aint gonna shudder, when the gangs around
Peer pressure whatever, its my planet now

Others may fall, I’mma hold my own
With Allah’s help I’ll be strong as stone
And I’mma be brave and let Al Islam be shown
Cause you I know I not afraid to stand alone


Cabaran-cabaran yang ditunjukkan dalam video clip lagu I'm Not Afraid To Stand Alone ni bukan sahaja berlaku di negara2 yang Muslim adalah minoriti, tetapi hakikatnya ia berlaku juga di Negara2 Islam sendiri.

Jadi apakah yang boleh menguatkan hati untuk tetap pada pendirian kita, tetap patuh pada suruhan dan larangan Allah pada zaman yang di mana kebanyakan orang menerima maksiat itu adalah biasa dan trend semasa, amal soleh dah ketaatan itu adalah pelik dan ketinggalan zaman?

Apa yang jadikan kita kuat untuk menongkah arus seperti yang dinyanyikan dalam lagu di atas ialah tidak lain dan tidak bukan bila kita rasakan Allah bersama kita.


Bagaimana kita ingin mendapatkan keyakinan yang Allah bersama kita dan kita mampu menghadapi cabaran-cabaran yang mendatang dengan hati yang teguh?

Banyak petua, doa dan amalan yang boleh kita lakukan.. tetapi suka saya petik kata-kata ini, kerana ia sangat praktikal dan mudah untuk kita sebagai orang awam untuk amalkan.


Pesan seorang Murabbi,
"Bila kita selalu sakit, maka rajinlah berpuasa. Bila kita berwajah gelap, rajinkanlah diri untuk berqiamulai (tahajjud). Bila kita punya hati yg sempit, maka banyakkan membaca Al-Quran. Bila kita terlalu susah untuk bahagia, solatlah tepat pada waktunya. Bila emosi kita sering terganggu, rajinkan berwudhuk dan ber-istighfar. Bila hati dan jiwa kita gelisah, banyakkan berdoa dan bersukan (beriadah). Bila kita dalam keadaan stress atau tertekan, seringlah membaca 'La haula wala quwwata illa billah'. Dan apabila kita merasa rezeki kita teramat sempit, maka perbanyakkanlah bersedekah.."


Semoga hati-hati kita kuat untuk tetap terus berada di jalan yang diredhaiNya.

Life is a struggle, constant struggle.. but fear not, coz Allah is always with us.. we just need to believe, with all out heart. :)
