people and politics..

New things each day...thats how life is...every day i see something new,learn something new, know something i never imagined before...anyway,as usual, my topic of the day is people and politic are inseparable.....what is politic? i can sum it up in a simple situation...a kid brought an extra sandwich to class...he gave it to one of his classmate of which he wanted to borrow his class notes....thats how simple politic is...its abt building relation with people...but knowing the evil nature in human, they manipulate politic to be something lower than filth itself..some people do politic for money, some for power, some for their own personal could be anything,from good to bad...sometimes it can be seen as using people to get what you wanted...and some people are very good at it,they can make the people they use unaware that they are being used....
lets take a look at a smaller scope,my college....haha..politics are everywhere,even on college level...being on good terms with the lecturers might gives u the edge if you ever listed for the viva...or if you skip class, you can still get the attendance by giving some reasons as long as you are in good terms with the lecturer...some of my collegemate use their knowledge to be their political edge..knowledge in religion,in technology..anything will do to gain support of people, or to put up their name so that people will see that their exist...and it irks me when this kind of people(status craze people) when they start abusing their knowledge to gain a higher status in the society....well,everything must start somewhere,and at last these people,my collegemates whom will grow up and be the one leading the country,brought along these kind of politic into the country political scene....
and the result? is like what we've seen now...power craze here and there....using all kind of tricks,personality assasination....yes,im really against personality assasination...for example,you are fighting against another candidate for another try to win the crowd not by winning their hearts, but by 'killing' the other candidate so that you will be the only to kill? they look up your personal history,from the day you are born till the day you've become their enemy....every single thing will be put up, even how long it takes for you to stop urinating on bed...anything will do to put you down,and it will always succeed...why? because no human is perfect..

thats enough about politic,what im interested to say today is about tahajjud....LITERALLY means to struggle rid oneself from sleep...just now,there was a small misunderstanding between my batchmates about the way it is done...though RARELY did it...hehe...but this is the result of my research and i found out,mostly in Quranic verses, they act is done after one sleeps,though it is not wrong to do it without in the end it still depends on our purpose(niat) right?

Allah Most High said, “Establish worship at the going down of the sun until the dark of the night, and (the recital of) the Qur’an at dawn. Lo! (the recital of) the Qur’an at dawn is ever witnessed. And some part of the night awake for its recital, as voluntary worship for you. It may be that your Lord will raise you to a praised estate.” [Qur’an, 17: 78-79]

From this it can be seen that some part of night we are required to be awake,meaning that we sleep before that and some part means later in the night...

‘They forsake their beds to cry unto their Lord in fear and hope, and spend of what We have bestowed on them. No soul knows what is kept hid from them of joy, as a reward for what they used to do.’ [Qur’an, 32: 16-17]

from this it can be seen that,they forsake their bed,meaning they give up their bed or they wake up to do something....

and this is from ijma' ulama'...

1. The minimal night vigil prayer is 2 rakats. [Hindiyya, quoting Fath al-Qadir]

2. Its optimal recommended amount is 8 rakats, because this was the general practice of the Messenger of Allah (blessings and peace be upon him, his family, and companions). [Hindiyya, quoting Fath al-Qadir]

3. Lengthier recitation is superior to a larger number of rakats prayed. [Durr al-Mukhtar, Radd al-Muhtar]

4. If one divides the night in thirds, then the final middle third is most virtuous. [Durr al-Mukhtar]

5. If one divides the night in half, then the second half is more virtuous. [ibid.]

6. Voluntary (nafl) prayer at night is more virtuous than voluntary prayer during the day. However, the full reward mentioned in the Qur’anic verses and Prophetic hadiths refers to worship that was preceded by sleep. This is also understood from the very linguistic meaning of tahajjud, which is to struggle rid oneself of sleep. [Ibn Abidin, Radd al-Muhtar, quoting Ibn Amir Haajj’s Halba]

7. Ibn Nujaym and Haskafi both affirmed that night prayer is recommended. [al-Bahr al-Ra’iq, and al-Durr al-Mukhtar; chosen in al-Fatawa al-Hindiyya] Kamal ibn al-Humam, the brilliant mujtahid who was the greatest Hanafi faqih of the latter half of Islamic history, however, wavered between it being recommended or a confirmed sunna. This is because while the spoken hadiths indicate recommendation, the continued practice of the Prophet Muhammad (Allah bless him and give him peace) would seem to indicate it being a confirmed sunna. This was also chosen by Ibn al-Humam’s student, Ibn Amir Haaj in his Halba. [Ibn Abidin, Radd al-Muhtar]

8. It is disliked to leave the night vigil prayer for one who has made it their habit, unless there is an excuse, because the Prophet Muhammad (Allah bless him and give him peace) said to Ibn Umar (Allah be pleased with him), “O Abd Allah! Do not be like so-and-so. He used to pray at night and then left it.” [Bukhari and Muslim] Therefore, one should take on an amount of works one can sustain, for the Messenger of Allah (blessings and peace be upon him, his family, and companions) said, “The most beloved of actions to Allah are the most constant, even if little.” [Bukhari and Muslim] [Ibn Abidin, Radd al-Muhtar, from Ibn Amir Haajj’s Halba]

9. It is recommended to start the night vigil with two short rakats, because of the hadith of Abu Hurayra that the Prophet Muhammad (Allah bless him and give him peace) said, “It you get up for night prayer, start with two short rakats.” [Muslim, Ahmad, Abu Dawud]

from this it can be seen that it is adviced to do the tahajjud later in the night,not early in the night...anyway,to those who cant accept ijma' from ulama'....i cant say anything more to me,these ulama' has studied the literal and figurative meanings of the dalil and hadith and we who are only mere medic student with no sufficient knowledge of hadith,quranic verses,hukums, have no right to make our on decision on such things..yes,Syafie once said if you find a hadith or quranic verses contradicting him, follow the quran and hadith...but how do we interpret the dalil? is what we interpret right? don't you think Syafie or the other imams has not seen the dalil and interpret it before they lay out their opinions? to me,those words from Syafie are directed to those who live a life of studying this field only,who expertise are parallel to them or at least has sufficient knowledge about these...for us who make these things our side interest,(we didnt study this things like we study for our block exams right?) we're just simply not competent enough...its like when somebody who has never been to a medical school but wanted to give out a medical certificate...its just not right isn't it? to give decision on something like this which can affect others, you need to be competent...thats why there's leader and there's follower..thats why God gave His prophet his words,not directly to all of the people...because only competent people can do certain job....


  1. Salam,

    Rilex bro..hehehe..ini merujuk dekat rumah kita ke yang buat tahajjud tak tidur? Aku setuju sangat yang paling afdhal ialah kena tidur dulu dan buat lewat 1/3 malam. Tengok Surah Al-Isra' ayat 79 dan Tafsir al-Qurtubi : 10/308 dan juga [Bukhari/1145][Muslim/758][Tirmizi/239](panjang sangat kalau nak quote). Semua ini pakat belaka nak tunjuk tahajjud kena buat lewat malam dan tidur, aku pun setuju.
    Cuma dalam kes rumah kita buat sebab nak ajak orang dekati solat tahajjud dengan tujuan mendidik. Kalau mendidik, kebenaran syara` kasi luas. Ada syarahnya-Kaifiat Adak al-Solawat al-faraidh wa al-Sunan , As-Syaikh Usamah Na’im Musthofa Taudhih ahkam min bulughil maram , As-Syaikh Abdullah Abd Rahman Al-Bassam.
    So, sesiapa nak buat tahajjud aku gesa dia tidur dulu dan buat lewat malam, macam yang kita cakap time tazkirah malam itu, dan itu lebih selamat dan menepati sunnah.

    p/s: emm..bila masa aku nak rebut kuasa politik and tak nak ikut ijma` `ulama'? hehe..aku terasa pula post kau kena dekat aku..and bila masa aku ada misunderstanding dengan member kita? aku pun tak ingatlah..hehe..peace

  2. aku x kate ko piji...haha..cume ade sesetengah org terlalu mengetengahkn sesuatu perkare mcm solat tahajjud ataupn bnde lain mengikut pendapat die je..memang bole keluarkn dalil semue tp tafsiran dalil tu ikot diri die sndr...pastu nk kate dalil tu bertentangan dgn pendapat ulama' dan terus ikot pendapat diri sndr...padahal ulama' tu sendiri tentu dh pernah kaji dalil tersebut dan ade sebab die ulama' tersebut mengeluarkn pendapat die..tu point aku sbnrnye...sbb bg aku para ulama' ni lg lame hidup and lg luas pengalaman die dr kite..kite ni baru sethn jagung dlm bnde2 ni dh nk lwn ckp die...lebih kurang camtu r..

    harap maklum semua. so selepas ini diharap tiada lagi yang tersalah anggapan tentang solat tahajud.



    (Dengan nama Allah, Segala puji bagi Allah, Selawat dan salam ke atas Rasulullah Shallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam, keluarga, sahabat dan para pengikut Baginda)

    Masa dan waktunya

    Waktu menunaikan sembahyang Tahajjud ialah sesudah masuk waktu ‘Isya dan selepas menunaikan sembahyang ‘Isya hingga terbit fajar sebelum masuk waktu subuh. Disyaratkan dilakukan selepas bangun daripada tidur, sekalipun tidur itu hanya sekejap. Jika dikerjakan sebelum tidur maka ia bukan dinamakan sembahyang Tahajjud.

    Ahmad bin Qasim al-‘Abadi berkata: “Walaupun sembahyang Isya dilakukan dengan cara jama’ taqdim dengan sembahyang maghrib di dalam waktu maghrib dan seterusnya bertahajjud disyaratkan juga dilakukan selepas tidur.”

    Menurut Syeikh as-Syarwani pula, maksud selepas tidur itu ialah: “Hendaklah tidur selepas masuk waktu ‘Isya walaupun belum menunaikan sembahyang ‘Isya, sebagaimana perkataan Sheikh Imam Shihab Ar-Ramli, hendaklah tidur itu pada waktu yang biasa orang tidur (selepas sembahyang ‘Isya).

    Persoalan yang mungkin berbangkit adakah memadai “syarat tidur’ seseorang yang tidur di waktu maghrib sehingga masuk waktu isya’?

    Syeikh as-Syarwani menjelaskan, jika seseorang itu tidur di dalam waktu maghrib dan bangun ketika masuk waktu Isya’ tidaklah memadai dengan tidurnya itu. Kerana Ibnu Hajar menyatakan bahawa tidur itu hendaklah selepas masuk waktu Isya’ sekalipun dia masih belum mengerjakan sembahyang Isya’.

    Manakala waktu yang paling afdhal menurut Ibnu Hajar al-Haitami ialah waktu tengah malam atau waktu sahur, iaitu satu pertiga akhir malam hinggalah sebelum masuk waktu subuh. Sesuai dengan firman Allah Ta‘ala:

    Tafsirnya: “Bangunlah sembahyang Tahajjud pada waktu malam, selain dari sedikit masa (yang tak dapat tidak untuk berehat). Iaitu separuh dari waktu malam, atau kurangkan sedikit dari separuh itu, Ataupun lebihkan (sedikit) daripadanya; dan bacalah Al-Quran dengan tartil (dengan bacaan yang terang jelas dan betul menurut ilmu tajuid).”

  4. hmm...just pandangan aku la...dlm kitab yg ko bg tu piji,die kate dibenarkn atas alasan untuk mendidik...mungkin die bermaksud cani..mcm contoh la kalau nk didik budak puase,bole je suruh die puase bukan pade bulan ramadhan tp tu bukan puasa untuk bulan ramadhan,hanya untuk,pade pendapat aku je la,mungkin die kate dibenarkn dibuat pade mase len untuk mendidik mcm contoh puase tu yg dilakukn tu bukan la solat tahajjud,or xkn dpt pahala spt solat tahajjud mcm la budak tu xkn dpt pahala spt puasa ramdhan sbb bukan dilakukn pada bulan ramadhan...mcm tu la..kot..

  5. Boleh jadi betul apa yang kau rasa, Fazid. Isu ini diletak bawah isu khilaf mengenai syarat Tidur (berdasarkan kitab yang aku cek dan laman web lain). Kebanyakan meletakkan Tidur sebagai syarat sah untuk tahajjud, dan terdapat ulama yang hanya meletakkan Tidur walau sekejap sebagai perkara mustahab (disukai/sunat) berikutan dari hadis tahajjud Nabi dengan sahabat tanpa ada riwayat Tidur. Difahami perbuatan yang kadang-kadang Nabi tinggalkan menunjukkan ianya bukan perkara rukun/syarat sah.

    Macam aku cakaplah, sunnah buat tahajjud ialah lewat malam dan mustahab selepas tidur. Isu-isu ulama berselisih pendapat, aku tarik diri. Pada aku, lebih mendekati Sunnah jika kita tidur dulu dan buat lewat malam. Sekadar pandangan aku.
    WaLlahu'a`lam. =)
