Tuesday Sharing: Afraid to Read

I have a draft from Ramadhan’s Usrah which is not posted. I know, I know, lazy alert! Lazy alert! My baaaaad. But, there’s a sharing from that Usrah that I can use here!

Someone (This someone is not me) shared to the group of us about Quran, ” Orang yang membaca Al-Quran, ayat-ayat yang kita selalu baca, di kubur, dia akan menemani kita. Oleh itu, jagalah hubungan kita dengan Al-Quran. Pada Hari Qiyamat, Allah memanggil ibu bapa kita dengan memakai mahkota kerana kita (anaknya) menjaga hubungan kita dengan Al-Quran. Orang yang menjaga hubungannya dengan Al-Quran saat-saat kita meninggal akan menjadi saat-saat manis untuk kita. Kerana Al-Quran itu akan datang dan membantu mereka.”

Also, err… I can’t remember the exact word but it goes along this line, “Rugilah orang yang tidak mendekatkan diri mereka dengan Al-Quran kerana ia mempunyai syafaat.” Then, there’s, ” Apabila kita sudah meninggal, putus lah nikmat dunia dan Al-Quran dan amalan lah peneman kita. Bayangkan pada Hari Qiyamat kita diberi buku kita dengan tangan kiri. Rugi sangat-sangat. Kenapa? Sebab masa kita di Dunia ini tidak digunakkan sebaik-baiknya. At this point, there is no turning back. On the flip side, kalau kita menerima buku amalan kita dengan tangan kanan, kitalah manusia yang sangat *i forgot the word* ah yes, bertuah. Orang yang terima buku amalan mereka dengan tangan kiri rugi sangat-sangat kerana pertama, mereka tidak dapat jumpa Allah. Don’t you want to meet Allah? Don’t you want to meet Our perfect Creator? Dan sudah tentunya orang yang menerima buku amalannya dengan tangan kiri tahu balasan yang menunggu mereka.” “Kalau kita adalah seorang anak yang sangat dekat dengan Quran, ibu bapa kita juga dapat memasuki syurga melalui kita, isn’t that a good deed?”

*pause* I actually forgot what I wanted to write. Yes, this is not what I wanted to write. At this point then I remembered! GAGALS. So, Since the cup is half full, I shall just continue and keep my supposedly this week share of sharing next week! Haha *ok, go*

I think last time (or sometimes now), I was kinda afraid of the Quran cause of the truth it holds. You know that there are some parts of your lifestyle which is unacceptable and stated in the Quran and you know that if you don’t reaaaaally know, Allah will forgive you because of your ignorance. But hey! One has got to be realistic right? So alhamdulillah, I started knowing (know ok, not really understand. I am faarr away from that) the meaning behind the verses bit by bit (thanks to usrahs and quotes from tumblr). I can never do it on my own man. Too many distractions!

So here’s a part of Afraid to Read lyrics :

(You can play the video below. But just to anyone who is a no-no to music, here’s the snippet of it. It only has tabla? Haha, kinda like drum beat. That’s a general term that Malay’s use >.< For those who are not, listen! It’s really meaningful).

I sent an email to my loved one, just the other day

It’s sad communication has evolved this way.

We use so many words but have so little to relate

Angels scribble down every letter that we say.

All the viral attachments sent and passionate insults we vent

It’s easy to be arrogant behind user passwords we invent.

But on the day the scrolls are laid, with every word and deed displayed,

When we read our accounts, I know, for one, I’ll be afraid.

That day I’ll be so afraid to read,

Every harsh word that I’ve spoken – and every time I have lied.

I’ll be obliged to admit,I’ll be obliged to submit

Will I have strength owning up to each deed I’ve tried to hide?

Oh Allah, I’m so afraid to read.

Oh yeaaahhh, Assalamu’alaikum guys 😀
