Better Man / Lelaki Idaman

Quiet. Offers a smile. More often heard than talking. But, once said, a lot of people affected. Also stunned. The first time I met, he looks mediocre. I’m rambling, pretentious even patronizing. He just shut up and listen.

In many meetings, it turns out he was a resource person. If not, there’s always time available to it. To give his words. That is, it belong to someone who was asked to speak. Remarks and comments are always awaited him. His words touched. Sarat wisdom. Full calculations. In between sentences, constantly flowing one or two verses Quran. Because of that, my friends never tired of listening speaking no. Now then I realized, it turns out he’s a great man. man’s dream.

Hearing the call to prayer, his body immediately raced toward the sound source. Whatever the conditions. With dashing he sat cross-legged in rows forefront. Her hand Manuscripts. Her eyes shot to every verse sections. Humility

On the other hand, gathered her threat sources. Defamation. It has a seductive pleasures of the world. And, seductive. Imagine, handsome face. Children of the rich. His father state officials. Including one of the elite ranks of government. Plus intelligent brain. Interlocutor fascinating and touching.

With all that, paradise extend in front of him. The door opened wide popularity. In the dictionary of life, how all this delicious guidance potentially closing acceleration. All the possibilities of guidance hindered in him. But he kept it.

All wave slander diverted into the doors of guidance. Often colleagues and her sisters realize the attitude and personality. Although there is a shortage, we need to see the positive side to it. To anyone. In order muhasabah more dominant than blasphemy and criticism.

msadIn history, Mus’ab bin Umair RA. elected as the first delegate of the Holy Prophet. He had the honor of handling the task of the Prophet in Medina, an ambassador extraordinary and plenipotentiary. Turns out he was sent not for rhetoric ansich. There is an interesting part of his life. Namely, the Islam which is awesome. Friends are among those who pull the trigger emigration. Courage to change. And, the patient is ready to undergo a period of transition. Then, by strapping his life changed course. In fact, before the hijrah, all worldly facilities lie for him. BECAUSE HIJRAH, IA KIND OF HONOUR.

uwaisThen, we get to know the figure of Uwais al-Qorniy. The man who fears known. We find it has NO LIMITATIONS TO AL-UMAR MODERATING ENTHUSIASTIC FARUK FIND THAT ALWAYS LOOK-existence. Umar missed. Although it is very simple and limited. Unfortunately, people like Uwais difficult to detect. It could be just a man like Umar are able to see and honor a man like Uwais.

We and the people are so requires a supply of people like them. They are so powerful lecture us with reality. With qudwah. Messages until it through words. Or, in tune with the phrase Muhammad Ahmad Rashid,

LELAKI IDAMAN

Pendiam. Murah senyum. Lebih sering mendengar ketimbang berbicara. Tapi, sekali berkata, banyak orang terpengaruh. Juga terperangah. Pertama kali saya berkenalan, ia nampak biasa-biasa saja. Saya mengoceh, bahkan sok menggurui. Ia hanya diam dan menyimak.

Dalam banyak pertemuan, ternyata ia menjadi nara sumber. Jika tidak, selalu ada waktu yang disediakan untuknya. Untuk memberikan kata-katanya. Artinya, ia tergolong orang yang diminta bicara. Sambutan dan tanggapan darinya selalu dinanti. Kata-katanya menyentuh. Sarat hikmah. Penuh perhitungan. Di sela-sela kalimatnya, senantiasa mengalir satu dua ayat al Qur’an. Karena itu, teman-teman tiada pernah bosan mendengarkannya berbicara. Sekarang barulah saya sadar, ternyata dia orang hebat. lelaki impian.

Mendengar azan, tubuhnya langsung melesat menuju sumber bunyi. Apapun kondisinya. Dengan gagah ia duduk bersimpuh di shaf terdepan. Tangannya memegang mushaf. Matanya menatap tajam ke setiap ruas-ruas ayat. Khusyu’

Di sisi lain, berkumpul padanya sumber-sumber ancaman. Fitnah. Ia memiliki kesenangan dunia yang menggiurkan. Dan, menggoda. Betapa tidak, wajahnya tampan. Anak orang kaya. Bapaknya pejabat negara. Termasuk salah satu jajaran elit pemerintahan. Ditambah otaknya yang cerdas. Bicaranya memukau dan menyentuh.

Dengan semua itu, surga dunia menghampar di hadapannya. Pintu popularitas terbuka lebar. Dalam kamus kehidupan, betapa semua nikmat ini sangat potensial menutup akselerasi hidayah. Segala kemungkinan-kemungkinan untuk terhalang dari hidayah ada pada dirinya. Tetapi ia tetap ia.

Semua gelombang fitnah itu dialihkannya ke dalam pintu-pintu hidayah. Seringkali rekan dan adik-adiknya tersadar dengan sikap dan kepribadiannya. Walau ada kekurangan, kita perlu melihat sisi positif padanya. Pada siapa saja. Agar muhasabah lebih dominan dari hujatan dan kritik.

Dalam sejarah, Mush’ab bin Umair ra. terpilih menjadi delegasi pertama Rasulullah Saw. Ia mendapat kehormatan menghandle tugas Nabi di Madinah, menjadi duta luarbiasa dan berkuasa penuh. Ternyata ia diutus bukan karena retorika ansich. Ada yang menarik dari perjalanan hidupnya. Yakni, proses keislaman yang mengagumkan. Sahabat ini termasuk orang-orang yang berani mengambil keputusan hijrah. Berani berubah. Dan, siap sabar menjalani masa peralihan. Lalu, dengan tegap merubah haluan kehidupannya. Padahal, sebelum hijrah, segala fasilitas duniawi terbentang untuknya. KARENA HIJRAH, IA PUN TERHORMAT.

Lalu, kita mengenal sosok Uwais al-Qorniy. Lelaki yang takut terkenal. KITA DAPATI KETERBATASAN YANG DIMILIKINYA TIDAK MAMPU MEREDAM ANTUSIAS UMAR AL-FARUK YANG SELALU MENCARI-CARI KEBERADAANNYA. Umar merindukannya. Walau ia sangat sederhana dan terbatas. Sayangnya, orang seperti Uwais sulit terdeteksi. Bisa jadi hanya orang seperti Umar saja yang mampu melihat dan menghormati sosok seperti Uwais.

Kita dan umat ini begitu membutuhkan pasokan orang-orang seperti mereka. Mereka begitu handal menceramahi kita dengan kenyataan. Dengan qudwah. Pesan-pesan sampai tidak melalui kata-kata. Atau, selaras dengan ungkapan Muhammad Ahmad Rasyid,
