Here we go again, play time's over! And the hectic days are back on its league. Second semester, much more complicated it seemed. But, remember what our lover, Allah SWT said?
"Allah does not impose upon any soul a duty but to the extent of its ability; for it is (the benefit of) what it has earned and upon it (the evil of) what it has wrought : Our Lord! do not punish us if we forget of make a mistake; Our Lord! do not lay on us a burden as thou didst lay on those before us; Our Lord! do not impose upon us that which we have no strength to bear; and pardon us and grant us protection and have mercy on us, Thou art our Patron, so help us against the unbelieving people." [2 : 286]
We may not be strong at times, but Allah always sends out something, that little something which springs us back into our best state of mind. Best state of mind? Define that! Aite I will. Lets "swim" deeper into that weirdo term. :)
My definition on the term "Best State of Mind" is when one is at its peak of faith, spirit and could differentiate between what's right and what's not, think critically and sensibly. In simpler terms, it's simply the utmost happiest point in life! In this state, one wishes he/she could forever live in that particular day. That day when nothing disrupts one's mind, he/she is at total peace. Sounds so heavenly, does it? Ask yourselves, have you ever been in this state of mind? Yes, No? If so, what actually made your day?
This unexplainable feeling of being happy, feeling at peace, smiling all day long, optimism at its best, fully energetic, and etc etc. Not even a single thing could interrupt one that particular day. Hyperactivity? No.
Ever heard of Iman (إيمان)? It means inner faith in Islam. There is 6 articles of faith in Islam. What are they? Lets do a recap, friends.
- Belief in Allah
- Belief in Prophets
- Belief in Angels
- Belief in Divine Books
- Belief in Qiamah (The Day of Judgement)
- Belief in Qadr (Fate/Predestination)
Having faith is believing in something, very deeply and holding on to it. A total divine faith to Islam.
Anyway. What relation does the term mentioned has to do with faith? Come on! Lets connect the dots and make a line! :D
The moment when you believe in Allah, when you believe in the Prophets, when you believe in the Angels, the Al-Quran sent, the Qiamah approaching, the Qadr that has been set by Allah, that is when you are fully in tawakkal state. Tawakkal is to firmly belief and to have perfect reliance to Allah. It is then that you will achieve your BEST STATE OF MIND. :D
I do not have that much knowledge right now. Insya-Allah, gaining from time to time. Sharing what I know, deep down. Do correct me, or you could even add-on things for this post. Jzzk. ;)
P/S : Be firm of yourselves, people. A great person has got good principles in life! Insya-Allah. Have faith in Allah. He knows best. Wallahu 'Alam. ;)
