Sometimes I get myself difficult to understand and contemplate the language of al-quran which led me reading it blindly and meaningless. It might be because I did not understand Arabic or my heart are so dark with sin until I did not get the wisdom beyond what I read or I am to rush to finish it.
We actually have more understanding from listening compare to reading by ourselves. Instead of reading the tafseer after reading some ayat in al-quran, I found a lot of videos explaining to us about the ayat in the al-quran which can help us understand more. Of course, going to the al-quran class and talaqi from cover to cover with mursyid teacher is the best act of learning the al-quran (and in fact most of the knowledge) but this one effort made by Nouman Ali Khan to explain deeply the ayat or chapter in the al-quran in a short video in Youtube is very good for our recap.
Like in this video, he explains more detail about one ayat that quite famous to us but we always take for granted the wisdom in it which is
Nor come nigh to adultery: for it is a shameful (deed) and an evil, opening the road (to other evils).
Dan janganlah kamu menghampiri zina, sesungguhnya zina itu adalah satu perbuatan yang keji dan satu jalan yang jahat (yang membawa kerosakan).
Allah ask us don't even go near to zina. In fact the act of things that we think it is not haram but the fact that it will suck us into it as we get involve in it until certainly it pull us little by little to the haram things is also forbidden for us. That's why we always have to contemplate ourselves, watch our everyday act and pray to Allah to protect us from all the evil deeds and horrible path.
And what amazing about this ayat said Ust Nouman is the ayat that coming after it which Allah tells us not to take people life (innocent person) except for just cause. We always think that murdering a person is a huge crime but Allah mention the ayat about zina first before talking about murdering one's life. The spiritual murder (fahsyah) which perhaps more dirty than physical murder (killing people). We take so granted about our spiritual prices which effecting a lot on our solat, our dua, our character, our family and our dignity. Allahu Allah..
A good heart is when see something unappropriate which does not coincide with the commandment of Allah, it disturbed not attracted. But if it feel no guilty doing inappropriate things that was sign of horrible spiritual state. Wal iya zubillah. May Allah protect us from involving in this horrible path and ease our way to have a very pure spiritual way of life in this blessing month of Ramadhan and the months forward.
p.s: Masjid Negeri Pahang is opened for registration for al-quran class every start of the year. Its about a year course until we can khatam it with good mahraj, sifat and tajwid. In fact there is tafaqquh fiddeen class on going every saturday and sunday. How I feel bless knowing that and living here.. huhu..Really hope can go there.
