    • 35. • 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)
    • 36. • 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.All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)

    • 38. “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)

    • 40. • 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)

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. • For “we are in the world but not of this world.” WaAllaahu a’lam.All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
