Noble Task From Allah swt

Nowadays, most of our duties that we do were coming from the instruction or insterrests of human. Such as the duty we do in our daily life in the office, all of those activities was done based on the instruction of the boss.

But, there are also people who assume that they do the task from Allah swt, but in reality what they have been done was they did their task based on their own understanding and knowledge. Such as for example a contemporary ulema who was insulting the government, or two teenagers who put explossive bomb on their motorcycle and then detonated it in a church. Those teenagers did their task based on the instruction from their father, and their father got the instruction to do that from his murrabi, and his murrabi got this from his murrabi, and so on which end to someone there who gave the instruction based on his wrong understanding on Islamic teaching.

So, there was actually no direct order from Allah swt, all tasks which have been done by our people were just merely based on the instructions from person and his understanding.

At the ancient time, when Moses as come to visit the Pharaoh and doing da’wah to ask them for taqwa, those were done based on the instructions from Allah swt. So it was not based on his privat wishes, or based on his private revenge or based on hiw own understanding.

وَإِذْ نَادَىٰ رَبُّكَ مُوسَىٰ أَنِ ائْتِ الْقَوْمَ الظَّالِمِينَ
قَوْمَ فِرْعَوْنَ ۚ أَلَا يَتَّقُونَ

“And [mention] when your Lord called Moses, [saying], "Go to the wrongdoing people - The people of Pharaoh. Will they not fear Allah ?" (QS 26:10-11)

Then, at the end of this age, when there are no more prophet or messenger, apparently we can found that Allah swt gives direct instruction to several of His servants to uphold the sentence from Allah swt, which are Syahadah, Istighfar and Sholawah. Really that it is something which are great honorable and noble thing.

Upon this honorable and noble thing, then those ones who received the instruction must have to be grateful with really a grateful deeds. Grateful that Allah swt the Almighty God of the grand universe had directly given order to several of His servants with this noble task. Let those ones all be grateful on this grace and honor to carry out the task from Allah swt with really a grateful deeds. (AK/??)
