Rasa malas & nikmat di dalamnya

Rasa malas kan solat adalah nikmat. Hmmm... before you start judging my statement, please make time to read what I have to say. You might wonder, aiks? How is that a nikmat? I think inda keterlaluan jua if I say bisikan syaitan atu adalah nikmat. How so? Bear with me.

Allah Ta'ala berfirman di dalam Surah At-Taubah, kira-kira bermaksud: "Berangkatlah kamu baik dalam keadaan merasa ringan atau pun merasa berat, dan berjihadlah dengan harta dan dirimu di jalan Allah."

Take two situations; satu situasi dimana you feel ringan untuk solat (itulah tanda adanya iman!), another situation where you feel lazy to solat. But at the end of both situations, you end up praying jua. In this case, just by logic alone, which situation, rasa-rasanya, lebih besar pahalanya? In my opinion, I'd say situation number 2, where you end up praying even though you felt lazy in the first place. Do you agree? Because kan walaupun kitani rasa malas kan solat, in the end, kitani mampu jua melawan nafsu diri kitani. Kitani mampu kalahkan bisikan syaitan yang membisikkan "jangan solat" ke dalam dada kitani. Do you agree?

Hmm, maybe an analogy can well explain what I'm trying to convey here. Okay, this may be a bad analogy what I'm going to come up with, but I hope you get the message! Hehehe...

Two men, one fat, another fit, runs the 100 metre track. Both finishes the run. Now, you as the observer, will be in awe of the fit man, or the fat man? I would be in awe of the fat man because he has to carry his heavy body weight along with his weak stamina, and yet, still able to finish the run when he could've given up midway or could've chosen not to run in the first place. Whereas the fit man can just easily finish the 100 metre track with just little effort. Can you see where I coming from? You'd appreciate the effort of the fat man more than you do for the fit man, no?

So whenever you feel lazy to solat, to read/reflect ayats from the Al-Qur'an, to come to majlis ilmu/ceramah, do know that it is actually a nikmat. BUT! It'll only be a nikmat if you are able to fight your nafsu, able to fight the whispers of syaitan. Only when you submit to their whispers will the feeling lead to the wrath of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala. This nafsu that we have in us is created for us to LAWAN and not LAYAN. Bila rasa berat/malas, just do it and fight your nafsu. Allah sudah cakap, just do it no matter if you feel ringan atau berat, just do it. But at the same time, jangan lupa check niat :) Buat kerana Allah :)

Having this thought insya Allah works for me to get moving. Whenever I feel lazy to do anything, I think of it as a nikmat, then suddenly I have a sudden rush of semangat (yang datangnya jua dari Allah), and the feeling of malas just goes away. Insya Allah.

You know, even though syaitan yang bisik arah kitani supaya inda solat atau supaya buat dosa, at the end of the day, kitani jua yang buat dosa atu. Di neraka nanti, kitani akan salahkan syaitan. We will say, "eh pasal syaitan tah ni aku banyak dosa ani!" Then syaitan will respond and say that what they did was only whisper into our hearts. The doer of the sins are still ourselves.

However though, I am NOT saying that Allah will grant us more pahala bila kitani solat di dalam keadaan berat. Hence the ayat I shared earlier, "Berangkatlah kamu baik dalam keadaan merasa ringan atau pun merasa berat..." Allah Maha Mengetahui. The question of pahala ani hanya Allah saja yang tahu. After all kan, kitani bukannya kan mengumpul pahala, tani beribadah adalah semata-mata kerana Allah Ta'ala, semata-semata kerana mencari keredhaan Allah Ta'ala.

Ambil lah ini sebagai motivasi untuk kala masa kita merasa malas ataupun berat...

Wallahu'alam. Semua yang baik datang dari Allah, yang inda baik atu datangnya dari diri yang serba kekurangan ini. Ambil yang jernih, buang yang keruh...
