7 Tanda Tanda Hati Yang Mati

Oleh: Mahmud Yunus

Syaqiq al-Balkhi mengisahkan, suatu ketika Ibrahim bin Adham jalan-jalan di Pasar Bashrah. Sekonyong-konyong, mendekatlah orang-orang. Lalu, mengelilinginya. Mereka bertanya kepadanya, “Apa maksud firman Allah, berdoalah kamu kepada-Ku niscaya Aku akan perkenankan doamu.” (QS Ghafir [40] : 60).

Mereka berkata, “Kami sebenarnya telah berdoa, namun setidaknya hingga hari ini tak kunjung dikabulkan Allah.” Ibrahim berkata, “Karena kalian mati hati. Maka, bagaimana doa kalian akan dikabulkan?”

Mereka bertanya lagi, “Mengapa kami dikatakan mati hati?” Ibrahim menjawab, “Terdapat 10 perkara yang menyebabkan mati hati”. Kemudian dia sebutkan satu per satu secara berurutan.

Pertama, kalian mengaku mengetahui Allah sebagai pencipta kalian tetapi kalian tidak menunaikan hak-hak-Nya. Allah berhak ditaati perintah-Nya. Mengapa, perintah-Nya itu kadang-kadang dilaksanakan dan kadang-kadang tidak dilaksanakan?

Kedua, kalian membaca kitab Allah, tetapi kalian tidak mengamalkan isinya. Allah memerintahkan agar menyembah Allah semata tanpa menyekutukan-Nya. Mengapa, Allah (langsung atau tidak langsung) kerap disekutukan dengan selain-Nya?

Ketiga, kalian mengaku memusuhi setan, tetapi kalian mengikuti perintahnya. Allah melarang mengikuti langkah-langkah setan. Mengapa langkah-langkah setan itulah yang kerap dijadikan rujukan dalam kehidupan sehari-hari?

Keempat, kalian mengaku mencintai Rasulullah SAW, tetapi kalian meninggalkan sunahnya. Rasulullah SAW menjelaskan, orang yang memelihara anak yatim akan mendapat tempat istimewa di surga. Mengapa, tidak sedikit orang yang membiarkan anak yatim tanpa masa depan cerah?

Kelima, kalian mengaku mendambakan surga, tetapi kalian tidak mengerjakan hal-hal yang akan mengantarkan kalian masuk ke dalamnya. Mendirikan shalat dengan khusyuk, mengeluarkan zakat, menjaga kemaluan adalah sebagian kecil contoh-contohnya. Mengapa, tidak sedikit orang yang melalaikannya?

Keenam, kalian mengaku takut neraka, tetapi kalian tidak menghindari perbuatan dosa/maksiat. Misalnya, Allah melarang keras perbuatan zalim. Mengapa, banyak orang yang merasa dizalimi sesamanya?

Ketujuh, kalian mengaku kematian itu niscaya datangnya, tetapi kalian tidak bersiap-siap menghadapinya. Contohnya, Allah menjelaskan di akhirat setiap orang akan dibalas sesuai dengan amalnya masing-masing. Mengapa, banyak orang yang tidak sungguh-sungguh mengerjakan amal saleh semasa hidupnya?

Kedelapan, kalian sibuk mempersoalkan cela, kekurangan, dan kesalahan orang lain sementara kalian abai terhadap cela, kekurangan, dan kesalahan diri kalian sendiri. Allah melarang keras membuka aib orang lain. Mengapa, masih banyak orang tidak menghiraukan larangan tersebut?

Kesembilan, kalian mendapatkan rezeki dari Allah, tetapi kalian lupa bersyukur kepada-Nya. Allah menitipkan harta yang banyak. Mengapa, tidak sedikit orang yang mengklaim harta itu miliknya sendiri? Lalu, mereka tidak mau berbagi dengan orang lain.

Ke-10, kalian mengebumikan jenazah saudara kalian, tetapi kalian tidak mengambil pelajaran darinya. Allah menyatakan, “Setiap yang bernyawa niscaya bakal merasakan kematian.”  Mengapa banyak orang yang seakan-akan tidak memercayainya? Wallahu a’lam.

7 Signs of a Dead Heart

By: Mahmud Yunus

Shaqiq al-Balkhi tells a story, one time Ibrahim bin Adham walked in the Basrah Market. Suddenly, people approached and surrounded him. They asked him, “What does the saying of Allah mean, pray for me, I will respond to you.” (Surah Ghafir [40]: 60).

They continued, “We have actually prayed, but until today Allah has not answered and granted it.” Ibrahim said, “Because your hearts are dead. So how will your prayers be answered?”

They asked again, “Why are we said to have a dead heart?” Ibrahim replied, “There are 10 cases that cause death of heart”. Then he mentions them one by one in sequence.

First, you claim Allah as your creator but you do not fulfill His rights. Allah has the right for His commands to be obeyed. Why are His commands, sometimes carried out and sometimes not?

Second, you read the book of Allah, but you do not practice the contents. Allah commands to only worship Allah without associating partners with Him. Why, Allah (directly or indirectly) is often associated with others than Him?

Third, you claim to be hostile to Satan, but you follow his orders. Allah forbid following the steps of Satan. Why the steps of Satan are often referred to in daily life?

Fourth, you claim to love the Prophet, but you leave his sunnah. The Prophet SAW explained, people who care for orphans will get a special place in heaven. Why are there those who let orphans without a bright future?

Fifth, you claim to crave heaven, but you don’t do things that will lead you into it. Praying solemly, issuing zakat, cover shamelessness are a few examples. Why are people neglecting it?

Sixth, you claim to be afraid of hell, but you do not avoid sinful acts / immorality. For example, Allah strictly forbids wrongdoing. Why many people are feeling wronged by each other?

Seventh, you claim that death will surely come, but you are not prepared to face it. For example, Allah explains in the hereafter that each person will be rewarded according to their respective deeds. Why, many people do not really do righteous deeds during their lives?

Eighth, you are busy questioning the blemishes, shortcomings, and mistakes of others while you are ignorant of your own reproaches, deficiencies, and mistakes. Allah strictly forbids exposing others. Why, are there still many people ignoring the prohibition?

Ninth, you get sustenance from Allah, but you forget to thank Him. Allah entrusts you with a lot of wealth. Why, not a few people who claim that property is their own? Then, they don’t want to share with others.

Tenth and the last, you buried your brother’s body, but you didn’t learn from him. Allah states, “Everyone who lives will inevitably feel death.” Why do many people seem to not believe it? Wallahu a’lam.
