The Intercessor of Syafaah

The word of Syafaah came from an arabic word of asy-sayafa’ which means multiple, so then syafaah can be translated as to muliply benefits which owned by someone toward someone else. Then, in particulary the word of syafaah is usually related with any help or rescue which was accepted by someone in the afterlife coming from someone else.

Next durng the afterlife, when people are in heavy sorrow and disasters which is unbearable, they asked help to particular persons who Allah swt permitted them to give syafaah. They come to the prophet Adam as, Noah as, Moses as and Yesus as. But they all can not give them syafaah. Then finally they come to the prophet saw, then he stand up and asking for syafaah to Allah swt, so they all will be saved from that great doom. Allah swt also fulfill the request and permit the syafaah.

يَوْمَئِذٍ لَا تَنْفَعُ الشَّفَاعَةُ إِلَّا مَنْ أَذِنَ لَهُ الرَّحْمَٰنُ وَرَضِيَ لَهُ قَوْلًا
“That Day, no intercession will benefit except [that of] one to whom the Most Merciful has given permission and has accepted his word.” (QS 20:109)

One of the aspect of Syahadah statement is be witnessing that the prophet Mohammed is the owner and the intercessor of syafaah. So, if there is an understanding saying that during the afterlife next, there will be no syafaah, then actually he had already invalidated his syahadah statement.

Does the syafaah help from Rasulullah Mohammed saw only occur during the afterlife only? The answer is No. Rasulullah Mohammed saw is not died, even until today he alive and always accompanying us, his people. Not only accompanying but also he always spread his syafaah and aid to all of us.

As for the ones who always doing sholawah to the prophet saw, then he himself will be close to the messenger Mohammed saw. He will guide the person thorugh a finest heart movement, understanding, instinct and inspiration to the person. Those are example of his syafaah.

Inside of everyone there must be a Nur Mohammed. Your tongue must ever sense such as sweet, salty or bitter right? Then actually what had been sensed by the tongue was not the taste, but merely only the difference of molecule composition on the tongue. The Nur Mohammed himself who gave taste to you, not the tongue. Because without the tongue you will still be able to have taste, as for example when you were dreaming.

So, as for the ones who oftenly doing sholawah, being aware the closeness of themselves with Mohammed saw, then he will realize that he will not be able to free up themselves from Mohammed saw. However, unfortunately that such kind of persons are very rare and hard to be found. Most of the people they are far away from Mohammed saw, thought that he has died and non-exist anymore. (AK/ST)
