  4. 4. “ (Al- Qur'an) as a guide to mankind also clear (Signs) for guidance and judgment ( criterion, between right and wrong)…”   SURAH AL-BAQARAH: 2 : 185 All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail 2011
  5. 5. <ul><li>“ O ye who believe! put not yourselves forward before Allah and His Messenger: but fear Allah: for Allah is He who hears and knows all things.”   </li></ul><ul><li>( Qur’an: Surah Hujurat: 49:1 ) </li></ul>All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail 2011
  6. 6. <ul><li>Islamic education stress much upon ' Adab ' ( knowledge of the order of things and putting everything, or dealing with things according to its proper place in their hierarchy of existence ). </li></ul><ul><li>Thus when we approach the Qur'an, remember it is not an ordinary Book - but direct revelations from Allah s.w.t. Who is: </li></ul><ul><li>(Allah) Most Gracious!  It is He Who has taught the Qur'an.  He has created man:  He has taught him speech (and Intelligence) </li></ul><ul><li>( Q: 55: Surah Ar-Rahmaan:1-4 ) </li></ul>All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail 2011
  7. 7. <ul><li>His Words perfected and expounded, containing profound Wisdom: more so when He addresses us specifically by &quot; O You who Believe !“ or any commandment, teachings and guidance directed specifically to us – the Muslims . </li></ul><ul><li>We must respond : &quot; LabbaykAllah !&quot; (Here I am O Allah! - am ready to heed & obey) “ Sami’-na wa a-to’naa !” We hear and we obey). </li></ul>All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail 2011
  8. 8. <ul><li>Allah warns us: </li></ul><ul><li>&quot; do not put yourselves forward before Allah and His Messenger&quot; </li></ul><ul><li>The state of consciousness that we are in, ascertains our attitude and behaviour. </li></ul><ul><li>Do we think that this warning, a commandment, does not concern us today? </li></ul><ul><li>Are we not the ones directly reading this message? </li></ul>All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail 2011
  9. 9. <ul><li>Thus the important teaching towards attainment of Taqwa : </li></ul><ul><li>“ but fear Allah ( taqwa ): for Allah is He who hears and knows all things.“ </li></ul><ul><li>Taqwa - ( piety; consciousness of Allah, with awe and reverential fear ) is a key state ( maqam ) or spiritual condition ( haal ) which we have to inculcate in ourselves. </li></ul>All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail 2011
  10. 10. <ul><li>Our minds are usually directed to other than Allah; distracted towards this world or too obsessed with our self-centred desires. All the teachings of Islam: iiman, 'amal & ihsan - is towards consistent awareness of Allah. </li></ul>All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail 2011
  11. 11. <ul><li>Our minds are usually directed to other than Allah; distracted towards this world or too obsessed with our self-centred desires. All the teachings of Islam: iiman, 'amal & ihsan - is towards consistent awareness of Allah. </li></ul><ul><li>To develop this, one must engage much in true remembrance of Allah. Bear in mind the (6) six qualities necessary for Taqwa (consciousness of Allah) through having: </li></ul>Understanding; Awareness; Reverence; Awe; Hope & Shame All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail 2011
  12. 12. <ul><li>How often we have forgotten that as Muslims, a higher law rules over us for every occasion? Think of the many occasion when our considerations for our behaviour and actions in life, excluded that which Allah and His messenger had already stipulated. </li></ul><ul><li>Perhaps we may be ignorant of rules ( hukm ), so we must strive to learn, but ignorant or not, would this not reflect our disrespectful behaviour, lack of Adab towards Allah and His Messenger? </li></ul>All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail 2011
  13. 13. <ul><li>Why do you think that Allah reminds us with : &quot;Allah Who hears and knows all things&quot; ? </li></ul><ul><li>And do we think no one knows what we are doing?! </li></ul><ul><li>In fact everything that we do are being witnessed, recorded - even in the secret depth of our being - are we not afraid? Are we not ashamed? </li></ul>All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail 2011
