Struggling Because of Allah

During the night of last August, 17th 2018, we had been celebrating the 19th anniversary of the Foundation of Yayasan Akhlaqul Karimah Darul Iman (YAKDI). Not realized it turns out that this Foundation had been already established for 19 years with all of ups and downs in its journey.

This foundation was established on August 1999 based on decision of several elders and founders of NKRI (Unitary State of Republic of Indonesia) who always strugling for this country. However, as we look at the development during this 19 years, apparently there have not been much advance can be achieved. The development chart and achievements are looked flat, according to our guru.

Does it a sign that there have been something wrong with this foundation? The answer is No. In fact that was the same reality which happened to the followers of the ancient prophets and messengers, eventhough that they had been struggled for years, the quantity of the followers were only a few.

In his message, our guru asked to his disciples to give more commitment and Syahadah statements on this struggling. Furthermore, our guru asked that all of the disciples shall struggle based on the motivation to Allah swt only, not based on our guru or based on the other things. Because whenever someone is struggling based on guru, then it will not get rewards of Bless from Allah swt, but he will get wrath of Allah swt.

Based on the history of this foundation, there had been a lot of disciples being fallen off from this struggle. Those were happened because that they were sruggling based on guru or based on the other things, not based on the motivation of Allah swt.

The same phenomenon which was similar to this was the event when Rasulullah saw was die. There had been many of the mosplem people at that time who were hesitant and unbelieve. They looked as if they will revert back to the jahiliyah era previously. So, then finally Abu Bakar as-Shidiq read one of the Qoran verse as follow to calm down the moslem people at that time.

وَمَا مُحَمَّدٌ إِلَّا رَسُولٌ قَدْ خَلَتْ مِنْ قَبْلِهِ الرُّسُلُ ۚ أَفَإِنْ مَاتَ أَوْ قُتِلَ انْقَلَبْتُمْ عَلَىٰ أَعْقَابِكُمْ ۚ
وَمَنْ يَنْقَلِبْ عَلَىٰ عَقِبَيْهِ فَلَنْ يَضُرَّ اللَّهَ شَيْئًا ۗ وَسَيَجْزِي اللَّهُ الشَّاكِرِينَ

“Muhammad is not but a messenger. [Other] messengers have passed on before him. So if he was to die or be killed, would you turn back on your heels [to revert back]? And he who turns back on his heels will never harm Allah at all; but Allah will reward the grateful.” (QS 3:144)

So as for today, our guru reminding his disciples who struggle because of guru then it is better for him to revert back. This message was align and in one terminology as the history and the Qoran as mentioned above.

Once again, let us all struggle more seriously and with full of commitments that we fight because of Allah swt only. This is which will bring Bless from Allah swt. On the contrary, struggling because of the other things will bring wrath from Allah swt. There had been many disciples who had fallen off from this way due to those things. So, please be aware of this. (AK/ST)
