Yes, it has been nearly two years. Taking a pause in writing to publish doesn't restrict me from writing more, but to write privately.

However, today, in this quiet night, a gush of feeling suddenly flooding through this small heart, that it felt so small to bear this overflowing emotion. A feeling of 'Sayu' and thankful both at the same time. It is true, what Allah swt has promised in His ayat:

" ...Allah chooses to Himself those whom He pleases, and guides to Himself those who turn (to Him)." (Asy Syuara: 13)

And another promise:
"(To them) and to their fathers, and progeny and brethren: We chose them, and we guided them to a straight way.This is the guidance of Allah. He giveth that guidance to whom He pleaseth, of His worshippers. If they were to join other gods with Him, all that they did would be vain for them." (Anaam:87-88)

Allah chooses His slaves to be in this straight path. He chooses His slaves to be among the best and to have another chance to be close to Him. It is an honor. It is a sign of love and barakah that Allah swt has showers to His slaves that are often lost and forget.

What does these ayat got to do with my emotion? A lot.

At some point in life, we came across so many people. Those that you made contact with, those that you passed by, those that you gave a portion of your heart to, or those that you filled your heart with. They are all  slaves of Allah, that Allah swt has destined your life to cross theirs in so many possible ways. Sometimes, there are those people that you felt that they are so perfect and pious, that you feel that they could make it to syurga, but Allah sometimes destined them otherwise. And there are those where you find themselves so lost and full of sins that you judge them to be destined to Hell, when in Allah's plan, they will be among the solihin in Jannah.

It hit me pretty hard, that sometimes we may take ourselves as God, when we are only a lowly slaves of Allah. We make sudden judgement on people when seeing or knowing the sins that the person committed, when in actual fact, as long as Allah swt gives them time and life, they still have the chance to change and repent. The second chance that Allah swt has provided for them is a sign of hope from Allah swt that they might be the chosen one to follow and accept the guidance of Allah swt. We never know, but we have to stop judging.

Just like the rain. The guidance is. When it hit the right place, a plant can grow beautifully. With the right nutrients and plenty of sun and water, it can even breed fruits and flowers that will benefit those in need in its surroundings. When we human take the rain of guidance of Allah swt with a sincere heart, we can be like that tree. Strong roots of iman, and branches and leaves of amal, it can seed out fruits and flowers that will benefit the other human beings and the livings surrounding it.

Thus, pause from judging, but look at those individuals that Allah swt has destined to cross your life and make doa that they will be chosen by Allah to be in Jannah. Be the strong tree that gives out delicious fruits and beautiful flowers, through dakwah and good deeds. May Allah swt bless you and all of us, and make us stay istiqamah in this straight path, insyAllah...

untuk kebaikan, harus Ikhlas dan nekad ^.^,
