001 | The Opening

Published by One Muslim under , , , on Tuesday, February 10, 2009

Al Fatiha means The Opening. The first chapter of the Qur'an. The Opening of the Qur'an is Al Fatiha. The Opening of the Qur'an is more than just a simple key, the opening of the Qur'an is the opening of mouth of the readers and manifesting the every words to life by sound. Recitation alone is just not enough, everyone can do that. The need here is, we have to open our hearts and minds, and let Allah pour everything into our heart what He wants us to understand from the Qur'an. Freely open up your heart and let Allah guide you.

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful; When we begin The Opening, we begin the Qur'an, we begin with Bismillah, we begin accepting Allah as our source, we begin accepting Allah as the one and only Creator. No change in this. So, we begin by calling for Allah and He turns towards us. In this case, our calling should be soothing and pleasing to Allah, should be filled with love to Allah. We calling Him, by his name the One who is Most Gracious, Most Merciful. This is the adab, we calling for Allah with love, respect and honour and no doubt accepting Him as our Creator.

Praise be to Allah, the Cherisher and Sustainer of the worlds; All praise is for Allah. Its worth it as He is our Creator, without his blessings, we would not be here. All praise for Allah as giving us the chance to read the Qur'an, the ultimate source of knowledge from the creation of Adam and till the end of the world.

All praise for Allah the Lord of the world. Its is the world of us as human being, also there is other world of spirit, of animals on earth, of creatures underwater, of planets, of galaxies, of Angels, of Jins, of Heaven, of Hell, and the world of unknown that only Allah knows. May Allah treat us all with compassion and mercy.

Most Gracious, Most Merciful; Attributes of Allah, so that Allah covers us with His love, with his compassion and mercy and saves us from His Wrath.

Master of the Day of Judgment; Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful, is the Master of the Day of Judgement. Religion in the world is the personal matter, we could see somebody praying, we could see somebody reciting Qur'an, but only Allah knows whats real in their hearts. Therefore, there will be the Day of Judgement, and Allah is the Master of that day. Obviously we could never escape.

Thee do we worship, and Thine aid we seek; There is only one god of the worlds, Allah. Hence we should serve for Allah, we should ask and seek help only from Allah. There is no other, Allah is for everything we should seek from.

Show us the straight way; We are so lost, may Allah guide us the straight path. The path to live a life where our action is good, the actions which is good for the sake of Allah. The path which is true, the path to mustaqeem. Siraat ul Mustaqeem is the path to rise, the path that has value in the presence of Allah, the path that makes us the guardians of Islaam.

We do not want to follow the path of those on whom there is the wrath of Allah, neither the path of those who have gone astray.
Abu Hurayrah reported that the Messenger of Allah said thrice: Whoso prays without reading therein the Mother of the Qur’an, it is defective (three times he repeated) and incomplete. It was said to Abu Hurayrah: We remain behind the Imam. He said: Read it within yourself, because I heard the Messenger of Allah….

Mishkat Tr. Fazlul Karim, Vol. 3, Hadith No. 222. with reference to Bukhari.
Allah created the heavens and the earth in 6 days. Then Allah rose over the Throne. So we take our 7 day week from this reference. Al Fatiha is not just the 11 opening of the Quraan, but it is the opening or start of creation of the heavens and the earth in 6 days, and the 7th day is the day of Allah's Istawa rising over the Heavens.

Salam...catatan yang sangat menarik dengan bahasa yang sangat mudah difahami. Semoga Allah membantu dan memberikan rahmat buat anda. Bukan mudah untuk mencintai Allah, bahkan yang cuba mencintaiNya diuji pula dengan ujian yang sangat hebat.

Oh ya...boleh bantu saya? Bagaimana untuk mendapatkan paparan yang luas seperti blog anda? Anda sendiri dapat lihat blog saya hanya memenuhi ruang tengah sahaja. Adakah template yang boleh anda cadadngkan.? Jika menukar template, adakah ada sesuatu yang hilang pada blog?

Wassalam.

Waalaikum Salam, thanks. Glad to know my sharing is digestible...

About your width problem, just go to edit HTML and see for width for all Heading, Post, sidebar and footer. eg: here at Stories... width:912px(header), 600px(post), 300px(sidebar), 100%(footer). learn more http://www.blogdoctor.me/2006/10/how-to-change-width-of-blog.html

Theme... try the themes pointed by http://www.bloggerstyles.com/ .

for real, if you don't do backup, you will probably lose your few widgets (eg: blogroll, shoutbox, sharethis, recent post/comments etc.) but not your post.

Sorry but.. Maybe I am able to explain the tweak in detail if you can send me your email address via my kontactr email button on the below-right.
