Is Islam a scary religion in Indonesia?
 
When setting foot in Indonesia for the first time in the mid-2012, Marina Dobosova, still unsure about the ‘scary’ impression of Muslims in Indonesia. Why’s that so? While visiting various countries, Marina - who is enrolled as the student of University of Muhammadiyah Malang (UMM), had minimum information of the country.
 
"Even in Europe, the impression of Islam was scary. So I was afraid of that," Marina said in a press release received by Reuters. However, upon entering the White Campus environment, all those negative stereotypes disappeared, as UMM is recognized as a campus in which there are variety of cultural backgrounds that live in harmony.
 
According to her, Indonesia is a very attractive country. However, UMM is more interesting than that. Indonesia has been successfully through a transition phase to democracy, as well as Slovakia which is separated from Soviet communism, she added. "That’s why, I am interested in studying of media in Indonesia for my dissertation at the Slovak University," said the journalist who started liking ‘soto ayam’ (Indonesian culinary, a kind of chicken soup) now.
 
She shared the experience she got from various countries to UMM University students in class-lectures. In fact, she’s been a volunteer to assist the faculty in teaching either Courses of Journalism or Media and Society studies in Faculty of Communication. "I love to share my experience when I was working as a journalist and traveled to 11 countries. I hope it's helpful," she said.
 
Marina is one of dozens of UMM's foreign students. She learned the language and culture of Indonesia through Darmasiswa scholarship given by the government of Indonesia. Moreover, she has opportunities to assist lecturers in teaching voluntarily. The same thing has been done by other foreign students who are studying at UMM, either from AISEC or Internship programs.
 
"UMM is a large and magnificent campus. No campus like this in Slovakia as my country is a small country. I love living here, as Indonesian Muslims apparently love peace, so tolerant and not limiting, "he said.

MUST READ STORY

Two men, both seriously ill, occupied the same
hospital room.

One man was allowed to sit up in his bed for an
hour each afternoon to help drain the fluid from
his lungs.

His bed was next to the room's only window.

The other man had to spend all his time flat on
his back.

The men talked for hours on end.

They spoke of their wives and families, their
homes, their jobs, their involvement in the
military service, where they had been on
vacation..

Every afternoon, when the man in the bed by the
window could sit up, he would pass the time by
describing to his roommate all the things he could
see outside the window.

The man in the other bed began to live for those
one hour periods where his world would be
broadened and enlivened by all the activity and
color of the world outside.

The window overlooked a park with a lovely lake.
Ducks and swans played on the water while children sailed their model boats. Young lovers
walked arm in arm amidst flowers of every color
and a fine view of the city skyline could be seen
in the distance.

As the man by the window described all this in
exquisite details, the man on the other side of
the room would close his eyes and imagine this
picturesque scene.

One warm afternoon, the man by the window
described a parade passing by.

Although the other man could not hear the band -
he could see it in his mind's eye as the
gentleman by the window portrayed it with
descriptive words.

Days, weeks and months passed.
One morning, the day nurse arrived to bring
water for their baths only to find the lifeless body
of the man by the window, who had died
peacefully in his sleep.

She was saddened and called the hospital
attendants to take the body away.

As soon as it seemed appropriate, the other man
asked if he could be moved next to the window.
The nurse was happy to make the switch, and
after making sure he was comfortable, she left
him alone.

Slowly, painfully, he propped himself up on one
elbow to take his first look at the real world
outside.
He strained to slowly turn to look out the window
besides the bed.

It faced a blank wall.

The man asked the nurse what could have
compelled his deceased roommate who had
described such wonderful things outside this
window.

The nurse responded that the man was blind and
could not even see the wall.

She said, 'Perhaps he just wanted to encourage
you.'

Epilogue:
There is tremendous happiness in making others
happy, despite our own situations.
Shared grief is half the sorrow, but happiness
when shared, is doubled.
If you want to feel rich, just count all the things
you have that money can't buy.

'"Today is a gift, that is why it is called The
Present."

The origin of this letter is unknown.

"Maturity" is the ability to control anger and settle differences without violence or destruction. How often do we let anger and destructive habits taint our responses to a situation?

I was amazed by my African friends. Most of them are Ethiopian, Somalian and citizens of the surrounding countries. They wear a perfect hijab, (I didn't even find them to wear improper hijabs) and they have so impressive manners. They wouldn't say something that wouldn't make someone happy. How they could be excellent hafeezah so easily is something I really curious about.


"I see you guys are excellent hafeezah. Masha Allah. How do you get it? Would you please tell me the secret?" I asked on of them one time.

She said, "We can't have a breakfast in the morning before committing muraja'ah (Quran memorizing exams) to our mother. Our Mom will give us a breakfast right after we pass the murajaah, and it is the same thing we have to do in every mealtime. Our mom will give much more portion for those who can memorize more, off course."

The school of Qur’an is a mandatory institution to enter at the young age. The muslim parents would much help by making a rule that require the children to do murajaah before eating.

My husband told me the similar stories. He told me that most of his friends proclaim as hafeez at the age of 15. Mashaa' Allah. It's a amazing spirit to get and shame on a Muslim who doesn't have any verses to memorize in his heart.

The other amazing story comes from a workmate. She told me that her husband used to go to garden with their children in order to give comfortable place and time for her to memorize Quran at home alone. In fact, he wouldn't mind for not going to work when her beloved wife has to take Tahfeez examination at the day. Masha Allah.

What a beautiful life when we can help each other to learn, figuring out and getting closer to Quran. I believe that children's habit and behavior is reflection of what their parents habit at home. Let's make reading Quran as our family daily habit and start to happy with it.

السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته

She asked a non Hijabi: “do you fast Ramadhan?” 
She answered her:”yes! Of course, with no doubt!”
“So why aren’t you wearing Hijab?!”
“well I will wear it in shaa Allah …I am just not convinced about it right now!”
“but isn’t The Lord Who ordered you to fast is the SAME Lord who ordered you to wear the Hihab?!”
“well …. Yeah!!”
The Hijabi answered her with an Ayah from Qur’an:“Then do you believe in a part of the Book and reject the rest?!!”
The non Hijabi remain silent for a while then said:”I will wear it in shaa Allah, when I will grow older!”
”but dear! Do you guarantee that you’ll live till the next year? Till tomorrow? Till the next hours or minutes?! Dear sister, you can’t guarantee that you will live till you grow older.Unfortunately, you have now that strong desire of living your Dunya to the fullest and enjoy it till the end but this life is temporary, your beautiful body which you want to expose today to non Mahrams, will be eaten one day by worms in the grave so don’t exchange the blessings of Jannah by the temporary enjoyment of Dunya. Be among the ones Allah talked about in Qur’an the “(believers) who sell the life of this world for the Hereafter”
may Allah guide you to what pleases HIM ameen”

It was the first command in Islam that revealed to the prophet. Before ordaining prayers and fasting, before giving details of the creed and the law to be revealed. " Say : Are those equal, those who know and those who do not know?" Quran surah Azzumar verse 9.
The first Quran concerns reading and learning, the ignorance and idleness on the rampage today in the Muslim World indicates that we do not believe in the essential teachings of our book, instead of learning and work, there is ignorance and laziness.
So, in order to increase our iman, we should increase our knowledge of deen.

All kind of sect in Islam is good as long as they carry out commandments of the Quran and behave as Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) either his deeds, behaviors or messages.
Is teaches kindness, peace, solidarity and tolerance to mankind.
To tell the truth, Ahmadiyah is not part of us (i.e. Muslims) as they didn't admit Muhammad (pbuh) as a last prophet sent by Allah. They're following someone who declare as a prophet namely Mirza Ghulam Ahmad as a messager of God who granted him another Quran. So, they do not admit the Quran as Muslims all over the words reading.
All Muslims live in tightly brotherhood under shades of one faith (iman).
Muslim have the same One God (Allah), One Last Messanger (i.e. Muhammad pbuh) and one Holly Book as a guidance (i.e. Quran).
If they don't have like we posses then they r not part of us.

LET'S AVOID THE BANKRUPTCY

The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) asked one group of his companions, “Do you know who the bankrupt person is?”

They said, “A bankrupt person amongst us is the one who has neither money nor property.”

The Prophet (pbuh) said, “The bankrupt person of my nation is he who would come on the Day of Resurrection with prayer and fast and giving great amounts in charity. And at the same time, he would come having abused this one, and slandered that one, and consumed the wealth of the other unlawfully, and shed the blood of yet others and having beaten others. Then any person whom he has wronged will be given from his good deeds on that Day. And if his good deeds are exhausted until he clears the account concerning all of the people he has oppressed, the sins of those people whom he has wronged will be thrown unto his account and after that, he will be thrown into the hellfire.” (Muslim)

The Messenger of Allah (pbuh) in the revolutionary hadith I quoted above, redefined the meaning of bankruptcy. On the Day of Judgment, every human being will be weighed by criteria that have nothing to do with finances.
If you have abused another human being with your tongue or your hands, then you're on the road to bankruptcy. If you’ve committed gheebah (backbiting) by mocking or criticizing someone in his absence, or if you’ve lied, or broken promises without cause, then you're dumping your good deeds down the drain.

If you have stolen someone’s wealth, then you are making yourself destitute.
If you have shed someone’s blood without cause, or beaten someone, then you have made yourself a penniless wretch.
If you have done all of these things, then it doesn’t matter if you pray and fast and give sadaqah, you are bankrupt, bankrupt, bankrupt. You're spiritually void. You are given all your good deeds away and replaced them with evil, and you are utterly destitute.

To be honest, I have done all of these things at some point in life, so I have much to fear, and I have not avoided bankruptcy at all, even if my wallet is full of money and my bank account is flush.

Things are not always as they seem, brothers and sisters. The eyes of the world deceive us.

Fear the true bankruptcy, the kind that dooms you before Allah! If you want to avoid that bankruptcy, and come before Allah as a rich man or woman, then prayer, fasting and charity are only the start. Abuse no one, backbite no one, insult no one, hurt no one, strike no one. Steal from no one, take advantage of no one.

Instead, be kind, and speak to people gently; be fair in everything, stand up for justice, and tell the truth. Act with love. Let Allah be your guide, and the Messenger of Allah (pbuh) your example.

Do this and you will be richer than any king or queen of this world.
