Semoga ada manfaat yang dapat di kongsi bersama.

Eyes that matters, 
by Br. majed mahmoud;

  1. Caring about people's judgment is okay (especially if it is related to their culture - as unity is very critical) fact it is encouraged...but it should not be more than caring about Allah's judgement.

  1. First  example :
                                  i.            'backbiting' has become the 'dessert' of every gathering/conversation. the scholars said that on the day of judgment, the body of the one who you backbite will be brought to you and you will be forced to literally eat the meat just as it is stated in surah al hujuraat (49:12) '..would one of you like to eat the flesh of his brother when dead? you would detest it..'
                                ii.            On the other hand..if you defend your brother , Prophet Muhammad s.a.w. said:“The one who rebuts another from backbiting has protected himself from the fire.”
                               iii.            Conclusion 1 : when people backbite or want to start backbiting, be brave to stop them/ leave them. you might lose your friends/geng but you will receive the pleasure of Allah ..insyaAllah

  1. Second example
                                  i.            Don't be shy to say I don't  know, because the Prophet s.a.w. also said I don't know.
hadith:..somebody came to the Prophet s.a.w and asked him: What are the worst places? The Prophet s.a.w. answered: I do not know. Then Jibrael came to the Prophet s.a w. and was asked by the Prophet s.a.w. what are the worst places? Jibrael a.s. said: I do not know, but I will ask my Lord. Jibrael left and was away as much as Allah wished, then came to the Prophet s.a.w. and said: 0 Muhammad s.a.w., you asked me what are the worst places and once I did not know I asked Allah s.w.t. and He said: (These are) the markets. (Ahmad)
                                ii.            Conclusion 2 : If you don't ; say it. Pretend to know and thus giving wrong information will harm the person who had asked you (in this world) and harm you in the next world.

  1. Third example
                                  i.            Our religion is based on naseehah. Look at how the Prophet s.a.w. give naseehah to Umar r.a. Prophet s.a.w. kissing the black stone however umar r.a.  accidently harm someone. He s.a.w. said 'o umar, you are a strong man and if you wish to kiss the black but you see there is crowd there step away and just make doa.
                                ii.            Conclusion 3 : must always give naseehah but be wise. start with recognizing positive first and then advise gently.

  1.  4th example
                                  i.            Just to avoid people's judgment during wedding ..some islamic values were compromised!!!
                                ii.            Whatever our effort in a wedding, we are going to be judged and we will never be able to please all people. just like the story of juha,
                               iii.            Conclusion 4 - we must put Allah's judgment above not compromise!

  1.  5th. example
                                  i.            False testimony .
The hadith: Prophet s.a.w. said, "Shall I not inform you of one of the gravest of the cardinal sins?" We said: "Yes, O Messenger of Allah. He s.a.w. said, "To join others as partners with Allah in worship and to be undutiful to one's parents." The Messenger of Allah sat up from his reclining position (in order to stress the importance of what he was going to say) and added, "I warn you making a false statement and giving a false testimony. I warn you against making a false statement and giving a false testimony." The Messenger of Allah s.a.w. kept on repeating this (warning) till we wished he should stop.
                                ii.            The speaker once tested with this trail when his friend got a parking ticket because parking in handicap section. he told the police that was sending hos mum at nearby mosque. he was told he must get at least 1 witness... and he was asked by his friend to be false witness. 
                               iii.            Conclusion 5..don't take that risk !!!

  1. Finally
Whoever sought the pleasure of Allah though it was displeasing to the people then Allah becomes pleased with him, and will make the people please with him, and whoever sought the pleasure of the people though it was displeasing to Allah then Allah becomes displeased with him and will make the people displeased with him.

  8. Untuk apa kita terlalu merisaukan pandangan manusia, jika kita tak gentar 'pandangan' Allah terhadap kita. Itu yang sepatutnya kita utamakan.
