Many of moslem people actually are in the condition of unaware and not understanding really the true fact. Because of this unawareness then they become very easy to be manipulated or brought into wrong understanding. Being used by several people who has their own purpose or trapped into a wrong assumption or opinion.
One of this case is about martyr. A martyr is the ones who has spent all of their lifes until their deaths to defend the Syahadah, that are the people who die in the path of Allah swt, the ones who were during their death they witnessing the path to Allah swt, become the witness of the Oneness of Allah swt (become a Syuhada - martyr).
The ones who do not understand might assume that there are only the people who die during the war in the path of Allah swt are the ones who become martyr. In fact, Mohammed saw who died because of sick, Abu Baqr as-Shidiq who died because of fever, Omar ibn Khatab who died because being stabbed, Utsman ibn Affan who killed and Ali ibn Abi Thalib who died because of being stabbed from behind, they all are actually also martyr.
What is being unknown to most of the moslem people today is the reality that they are the martyr actually still alive up today, they exist in this world, amongst us. Only that most of us are unaware of this.
وَلَا تَقُولُوا لِمَنْ يُقْتَلُ فِي سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ أَمْوَاتٌ ۚ بَلْ أَحْيَاءٌ وَلَٰكِنْ لَا تَشْعُرُونَ
“And do not say about those who are killed in the way of Allah, "They are dead." Rather, they are alive, but you aware of [it] not..” (QS 2:154)
In Indonesia itself there exists thousand of martyr of they who died in order to struggle for freedom from foreign imperialism.
As for the ordinary people, after they died they will be placed by Allah swt at the Barzakh world, the world for waiting. But, as for the martyr, they will still alive and exist amongst us, and they can interact with us now.
In this world, there are several people who had gifted from Allah swt for interacting and communicating with the martyr. By the communication with them then we are able to get an accurate information about previous history and also to get advice and teaching from the previous persons.
Isn’t it something which is very useful? Isn’t it something which can be used as one of the way to dig the true Islamic teaching and more accurate compared with just merely an interpretation of a proposition?
With this way, we will be able to filter out which teaching is right and which teaching is wrong, which understanding is right and which understanding is wrong. So, let us do and understand the righteous of Islamic teaching with the right way and try to get this true with absolute truly, not just from supposedly as told. (AK/ST)
