pelik terlebih pelik..hampir terlebih hampir..

-Imam Shafie ditanya tentang 8 perkataan.
Jawab beliau dalam syairnya:

Wajib atas manusia untuk bertaubat
tetapi tinggalkan dosa itu terlebih wajib
Seluruh masa diguna utk bertaubat itu pelik
Lalainya manusia dari bertaubat terlebih pelik
Sabar tunaikan perintah itu payah
Tetapi luputnya pahala itu terlebih payah
Semua perkara yang diharap itu hampir
Dan mati itu sebenarnya terlebih hampir

3 Questions...anyone?

Three Questions

There was a young man who went overseas to study for a quite a long time. When he returned home, he asked his parents to find him a religious scholar or any expert who could answer his 3 Questions. Finally, his parents were able to find a Muslim scholar.

Young Man : Who are you? Can you answer my Questions?

Scholar : I am one of Allah’s (SWT) slaves and Insha Allah (God Willing), I will be able to answer your Questions.

Young Man: Are you sure? A lot of Professors and experts were not able to answer my questions.

Scholar : I will try my best, with the help of Allah (Subhanahu Wata’ala).

Young Man: I have 3 Questions

Question # 1 Does God Exist? If so, show me his shape.

Question # 2 What is Taqdeer (Fate)?

Question # 3 If shaitan (Devil) was created from the fire, why at the end he will be thrown to hell that is also created from fire. It certainly will not hurt him at all, since shaitan & the hell were created from Fire.

Suddenly, the Scholar slapped the young man’s face very hard.

Young man (Felt Pain) : why do you get angry at me?

Scholar : I am not angry. The slap is my answer to your questions.

Young Man : I really don’t understand.

Scholar : How do you feel after I slapped you?

Young Man : Of course, I felt pain

Scholar : So do you believe that pain exists?

Young Man : Yes.

Scholar : Show me the shape of the pain!

Young Man : I cannot.

Scholar : That is my first answer. All of us feel God’s existence without being able to see His shape…Last night, did you dream that you will be slapped by me?

Young Man : No.

Scholar : Did you ever think that you will get a slap from me today?

Young Man : No.

Scholar : That is Taqdeer (fate) my second answer…my hand that I used to slap you, what is it created from?

Young Man : It is created from flesh.

Scholar : How about your face, what is it created from?

Young Man : Flesh.

Scholar : How do you feel after I slapped you?

Young Man : In pain.

Scholar : That’s it. This is my third answer, even though Shaitan (Devil) and also the hell were created from the fire, if Allah wants, the hell will become a very painful place for Shaitan.
