...do not SELL-FISH

(4 for me & 1 for you)
.
Sin or we have not sinned for failing to perform the fardhu kifayah? depa buat kita tak payah - longtime slogan heard during schooldays/childhood. Actually, what is fardhu ain and what is fardhu kifayah and those things yang tak payah-tak payah tu? Will Allah give us a place in Heaven despite our failures to upgrade/develop/hold/help our community.
.
Ustaz Wan Adam during his tazkirah tonite asked Jamaah to ponder -- there are 3 categories in our society. First group is Amal-ma'ruf-nahi-munkar people. Second, people who are Amal-ma'ruf but never do nahi-munkar. Thirdly, those munkar people, they do things forbidden by Allah s.w.t. In giving advice to the third, never leave that to Imam/Ustaz alone or to other people/authority to solve/give solutions. We are also responsible and answerable to what is happening around us especially to our family. Be part of it, get involved.
.
Of course, we have to uphold and focus on the performance of fardhu ain (for ourselves). But, Islam does not teach us to be selfish. Don't say that as long as i OK, i dah solat puasa zakat haji, cukup la, i nak duduk masjid je...masalah/maksiat depa den maleh lah nak pikior... How can we just concentrating to perform self-duty & gain pahala for us alone and avoid/ignore duties to the Muslim community...
.
So, friends/readers, never ignore fardhu kifayah, never, eventhough you perform your fardhu ain religously.
