  • 1. LESSON # 14 EPILOGUE ADAB IN WORKING LIFE 3RD RUN OF THE MODULE Arabic (plural) of Adab : meanings – “good breeding, decency, nurture, good manners, refinement, cultured, decorum, courteous, etiquette, propriety, social grace, to educate, discipline, the humanities, etc.” sense of proportion and knowledge of their rightful place in the order of things, the absence of which indicates injustice started 18 January 2014 IN THE NAME OF ALLAH, MOST COMPASSIONATE, MOST MERCIFUL. All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2014) UPDATED – 17 MAY 2014 Topic for 17 May 2014 ADAB (Part 2) -The continuation
  • 2. Arabic (plural) of Adab : meanings – “good breeding, decency, nurture, good manners, refinement, cultured, decorum, courteous, etiquette, propriety, social grace, to educate, discipline, the humanities, etc.” sense of proportion and knowledge of their rightful place in the order of things, the absence of which indicates injustice All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
  • 3. “We are (much) in need of a little adab, from (that of) going out (seeking) after much of ‘ilm (knowledge)” – Imam ‘Abdullah al-Mubarak All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
  • 4. Information gathered are like pieces of jig-saw puzzle. It may seem quite easy to get them, especially when they seemed to be scattered about almost everywhere. 5All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2014)
  • 5. Some people are keen to only gather them, to pick them up, to steal these pieces, and are obsessed with merely having as much of them as possible – not realizing its true meaning, its true significance, its true place and purpose. 6All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2014)
  • 6. Thus, some people may feel that they have ‘knowledge’, whereas what they possess may just be merely ‘information’. 7All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2014)
  • 7. Actually by “knowledge”, we are referring to the relevant “meaning of that subject that we seek to acquire, arriving in our soul ...” 8All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2014)
  • 8. The “Soul” (or sometimes referred to as the ‘heart’, ‘mind’ or ‘intellect’) is the spiritual Self of who we are - our cognitive essence, capable of knowing and of learning. 9All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2014)
  • 9. When we speak of “knowledge” as referring to “meaning” , it is: “ ... the arrival of meaning of not just the subject per se, but how it relates to whatever knowledge which we already possess within our soul.” 10All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2014)
  • 10. Thus education is said to be “organic” liken to a living organism – which pertains to the growth of our soul. Education is not a mechanical construct, but it entails nurturing of something with Life – educators to be likened as the gardeners not engineers. 11All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2014)
  • 11. Actually, (in Islamic education), when acquiring any pieces of it (information), you (as students) should also be learning what its meaning and significance is, and how it is to be applied (fixed) unto what you already possess thus far – increasing your growth. 12All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2014)
  • 12. This can only be possible when such pieces are given to you by one who has true ownership of these, and who consents to give them to you and helps you with how you should understand them, and to form (or attach) them unto your own overall worldview. 13All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2014)
  • 13. Thus, you must also be learning from the right person, i.e. those who has ‘seen’ the full - the completed picture. Only they are the ones who can rightfully teach you how you are to make each pieces to become meaningful to what you already possess. 14All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2014)
  • 14. And the manner or approach towards making it meaningful (enlightening), may be seen from various perspectives (angles) amongst fellow students in the same class, because each student may have a limited vision of what the teacher was teaching. 15All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2014)
  • 15. Thus traditional teachers often encourage revision – (if individually, the Malay term used, that I remember was “menderas”), or if in group discussion, as “halaqah” (study circle). Group sharing exercise, enhances your learning. 16All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2014)

  • 17. Hadith from Ibn Mas’ud r.a.: “Verily! The Qur’an is Allah’s Banquet on earth, so learn thoroughly, then, from (or of) His Banquet.” [1] [1] S.M.Naquib Al-Attas “Islam and Secularism” page 150 TASAWWUR ISLAM All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
  • 18. Thus,“ Adab” in the original basic sense (in Arabic) as it is applied in this Hadith (MA’DABAH) is the “inviting to a banquet.” The idea of a banquet implies the host is a man of honour and prestige, and that many people are present; that the people who are present are those who in the host’s estimation are deserving of the honour of the invitation, and they are therefore people of refined qualities and upbringing who are expected to behave as befits their station, in speech, conduct and etiquette.” [1] [1] S.M.Naquib Al-Attas “Islam and Secularism” page 149 TASAWWUR ISLAM All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)

Its roots, its stems which then grow into trunk and branches, its barks and leaves etc. All of these has to be nurtured and let to grow in tandem – as and when conditions permits. If any of these is neglected, or process for their growth stymied to only allow one component to be fully developed without these others – then the tree may be harmed.

  • 55. Thus Education, from Islamic perspective, it must not be mere learning of subjects but must have specific objectives i.e. towards fulfilment of obligations which has to be carried out in our Being (thoughts, words and deeds) – but not divorced (dichotomised) from the bigger objective or purpose of our being a Muslim. These obligations are what have been fixed (FARDH) or ruled as such (WAJIB) by Allah and is Messenger s.a.a.w. - dependent upon our condition, situation and state of Being (spiritual station – ‘HAAL’ or ‘MAQOM’). All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
  • 56. It begins with the most basic state of Islam (submission), which one gradually progresses towards higher stations, culminating with TAQWA – the state which Allah distinguishes difference in nobility amongst mankind. And the reality (HAQIQAH) of our existence is that we are always being tested in matter of our relationships – from inner to outer, from creations to the Creator, from self to family, to neighbours, to society, to nations, to world and beyond – from the world to the Hereafter, etc. All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
  • 57. And it requires our adherence to a single consciousness – within a TAUHEEDIC worldview – without ever being disloyal or false to our claim of being Witnesses to Allah’s Absolute Oneness and gratefully acknowledging His Compassionate Justice (QISTw). Thus beginning with inculcation of foundational basic knowledge of Islam – ‘ULUM AD-DEEN, the quantum may be increased and more importantly, the quality of state of being (HAAL) of a Muslim - may always change, increase/decrease. An important bestowal that we seek from Allah in this pursuit towards excellence is “ISTIQOMAH ” – when Allah grant us firmness in our station (MAQOM) thus attained.

  • 59. “Allah (SHAHIDA) witnesses that there is no deity except Him, and [so do] the angels and those of knowledge - [that He is] maintaining [creation] in justice (QISTw). There is no deity except Him, the Exalted in Might, the Wise. Indeed, the religion in the sight of Allah is AL-ISLAM. And those who were given the Scripture did not differ except after knowledge had come to them - out of jealous animosity between themselves. And whoever disbelieves in the verses of Allah, then indeed, Allah is swift in [taking] account.” (Qur’an: Aali ‘Imran: 3: 18-19) All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
  • 60. All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
  • 61. To strive with TAQWA, requires the presence of mind and sobriety in our judgment (applying values), remembering every aspects or thing which are important and relevant towards the truth and our well-being in the scheme of life we make for ourselves. Islam teaches Muslims that for every matter, things, situation, circumstance we encounter or are connected in life- relationship, there are always a ruling (HUKM’) which we may be made to be accountable (under SHARI’AH) in how we fulfill our respected responsibilities towards them. ADAB is to know their place and to treat them respectfully and rightfully. All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
  • 62. These, on the following charts, are the general overview of whom we need to relate with our “ADAB” to – while we are in this world. To know their places and accord them their due. It is suggested that for which ever lessons, mind-map should be drawn and annotated wherever relevant as we go along. The subject matter may seem disparate, but actually they are interconnected wholistically – i.e. connected to the Divine Plan. The wholistic bigger picture (worldview) must not be ignored.
