Why do we awe over money and materials?

Kenapa kitani inda berbangga akan kebesaran Allah? Lets take a shower head as an example. I bet the first time shower heads was used in Brunei yonks ago, semua orang bangga kan shower heads. Bannga kan technology cara mandi baru inda lagi payah begayung. Bangga kan shower headnya ada ia tedapat di rumah.

Allah menurukan hujan inda payah pakai shower head. Inda payah pakai gayung. Kenapa inda bangga dengan kebesaran Allah?

Telephones. Wah... semua orang sakai. With telephones people can connect wherever they are, so they say. Proud, they are.

ALLAH needs no telephone to connect to His servants. Something to be amazed about, no?

These things that we call money, gadgets, materials and other things of its sort, often easily amaze us. Kenapa kitani bangga-bangga kan barang-barang yang temporary? Duit lapas pakai, abis. iPhone bali hari ani, dua-tiga tahun, rusak tia. Kereta lapas abis loan, rusak sana-sini. Why awe over these things?

Take a random person out there and tell him something like… "Kau tau kah kalau belajar in-service, government bagi tani elaun $6000+ sebulan???"

Sekali yang mendangar ani akan balas, "Apeeeehh!! Gila!! Atu banyak!! Waaaah!! Banar deh?? Eh apply in-service ku eh!! Sirius?? Waaaah!!"

Take that very same person and tell him this… “Have you ever wondered of Allah's creation? The sky? The ocean? The volacanoes? Did you know that if you recite Surah Al-Ikhlas 3 times, it’s equivalent to reading the whole content of the Al-Qur’an? Did you know that if we think just for a second about the reality of the ummah, it's like performing 1000 rakaats of solat sunat, perhaps even better? ”

Will the person respond to the teller like how he had responded to the first statement? He probably will respond like this...

“Oh yakah? Ok." Not even the slightest bit of amazement shows.

Learn Islam, fight ignorance!
