  4. 4. TADZKIRAHTADZKIRAH All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2015) “[Fasting for] a limited number of days. So whoever among you is ill or on a journey [during them] - then an equal number of days [are to be made up]. And upon those who are able [to fast, but with hardship] - a ransom [as substitute] of feeding a poor person [each day]. And whoever volunteers excess - it is better for him. But to fast is best for you, if you only knew.” (Qur’an: Baqarah: 2: 184)

  6. 6. All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2015)  From these verses, so much can be learnt, depending upon Allah SWT granting us the profound understanding and Wisdom. Traditionally, we would speak of the many benefits of fasting an of Ramadhan.  As in my previous reflections, I would seek out the profound ‘principles’ in every of the teachings of the Qur’an and As-Sunnah of our Prophet Muhammad ‫ﷺ‬ which, rather then be reduced or confined only to its immediate context, it should also be possible to extend and apply them consistently throughout our life generally as Muslims.  Rather than limiting it on Ramadhan, let us consider what impact and significant these lessons have upon our entire life as Muslims. TADZKIRAHTADZKIRAH
  7. 7. All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2015)  Amongst these ‘principles’ which (WALLAAHU-A’LAM –and only Allah knows all), I can identify are important virtues in the Islamic concepts such as TAQWA (God fearing-consciousness); and seeking HUSN-AL-KHAWAATIM (Goodly or best endings); striving with virtue of AS-SWOBR (Patient perseverance) and hoping to be granted virtue of AL-ISTIQOMAH (Steadfastness, unswerving consistency).  In Ramadhan fasting, INSHA-ALLAH we may be given the lesson and experience fore-taste (DZOUQ) of the various states of TAQWA.  As previously alluded, TAQWA is that spiritual state of consciousness of Allah SWT leading to our safeguarding ourselves from sinning, and it has various levels : TADZKIRAHTADZKIRAH

  16. 16. TADZKIRAHTADZKIRAH All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2015) ““O you who have attained to faith (Believers)! Be conscious of AllahO you who have attained to faith (Believers)! Be conscious of Allah ((TAQWATAQWA -fear transgressing against Him) with all the-fear transgressing against Him) with all the TAQWATAQWA -- consciousness that is due to Him, andconsciousness that is due to Him, and do not allow death to overtakedo not allow death to overtake you unless you have surrendered yourselvesyou unless you have surrendered yourselves unto Him (unto Him (MUSLIMUNMUSLIMUN).”).” ((Qur’an: Aali ‘Imran: 3: 102Qur’an: Aali ‘Imran: 3: 102))
  17. 17. All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2015)  TAQWA (God fearing-consciousness) has various levels from basic to the highest virtue which Muslims must strive for, and thus the very reason Allah SWT has prescribed the fasting in Ramadhan is for us to learn it.  Indeed to have TAQWA is such an important command to strive for that without fail, every KHATIB (mosque sermon-preacher) in JUMU’AH has to enjoin upon himself and every Muslim from the pulpit (MIMBAR).  Interestingly, in this verse (Q: Aali ‘Imran:3 : 102), we are clearly commanded to remain true as Muslims until the end. This alludes to another principle teaching in Islam which highlight the state of our ‘ending’ as crucial – “Do not die unless you have surrendered as Muslims” . This is generally termed as “HUS-NUL-KHATIMAH.” TADZKIRAHTADZKIRAH
  18. 18. All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2015)  Reflect the principles of TAQWA - as in fasting, we are to always fear transgressing against what has been deemed forbidden (thus – TAQWA God fearing-consciousness) and to ensure the outcome of the fast and our ‘IBADAH (worship and devotionals) in Ramadhan becomes acceptable to Allah (thus HUS-NUL KHAWAATIM- good endings).  And to be able to do this we have to practice the virtue of striving with AS-SWOBR’ (patient perseverance) through the days fasting, and being vigilant through its nights - from the first day till the end of RAMADHAN.  With its accomplishment in RAMADHAN, it is hope that the newly attained level of heightened religiosity can be appreciated and sustained throughout (thus ISTIQOMAH – steadfast, uprightness) TADZKIRAHTADZKIRAH

All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2015)  In fact this principles are true also for :  SHAHADAHTAIN – being ever faithful in fulfilling and manifesting its true meaning in life by complying with the SHAR’IYYAH HUKM and avoiding at all cost what may nullify it i.e. SHIRK (in Belief) or IRTIDAD (in Actions).

The pace was steady and it was led by their team captain-cum-coach, who provided them direction as well as to monitor every one else’s timing. This was done for some distance in the race when suddenly they were overtaken by several others from different teams, sprinting past them. One member in team then shouted at the captain: Question: Why are we going so slow unlike others who kept whizzing pass us all. Shouldn’t we be like them and try to be ahead of them? Answer : The others you saw sprinting are those who believe that we are running a 100 meter race. Actually, we are in a 12 kilometer marathon!

  43. 43. Once a rather ‘tricky’ (loaded) question was posed to me, which, if hastily (wrongly) responded would result in either : [1] Islam being misrepresented in a very bad light to non-Muslims, or [2] the true message and teaching of Al-Islam compromised for the sake of trying to conform to non-Muslim’s value regarding what is good. It was regarding a well-known (non-Muslim) Noble Prize winner, Mother Teresa of Calcutta , acknowledged for her exceptionally good humanitarian work amongst the poor. The question was : Based on the Islamic perspective (tenets, dogma, teaching), will she (as a non-Muslim) still end up in Hell in the Hereafter, despite her having done (acknowledged by all), nay in fact dedicated her whole life, in such good works? All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2014))
  44. 44. MY RESPONSE: No! She will not “go to hell in the Hereafter, despite her having done good works” … it depends on other fundamental factors (criteria) other than deeds.  Islam too recognize and admire the good exemplary works that she had done. And we Muslims believe that Allah is Just and has already determined that she be rewarded for her good works … after all, she had already received the Noble prize and won worldwide accolades for that – albeit in this life. The question as to “whether she will end up in Paradise or Hell in the Afterlife”, is dependent upon whether in this life she had believed, acknowledged and served (worship) the True God till the end . After all, it is Allah, Who Alone can judge and decide that matter, because it is to Him belongs both Paradise and Hell. And those who associate partners to God will forever be forbidden Paradise; while unrepentant sinful believer may still be in Hell for a term. All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2014))
