10 Tips for Self-Revival

10 Tip untuk pembaruan hidup bagi diri sendiri

  1. Take the initiative. Change is a verb. You have to first change to see the change.

Ambil inisiatif,  perubahan adalah kata kerja, kau harus berubah dulu untuk melihat perubahan.

“And that human can have nothing but what he does (good or bad), and that his deeds will be seen.” (An-Najm 53:39-40)

“Verily never will Allah change the condition of a people until they change it themselves.” (Ar-Ra’ad 13:11)

“Dan bahwa manusia hanya memperoleh apa yang telah diusahakannya, dan sesungguhnya usahanya itu kelak akan diperlihatkan (kepadanya).” (An-Najm 53:39-40)

“…Sesungguhnya Allah tidak akan mengubah keadaan suatu kaum sebelum mereka mengubah keadaan diri mereka sendiri … “ (Ar-Ra’ad 13:11)

  1. Don’t procrastinate. Start from this moment.

Jangan menunda. Mulai saat ini (sekarang).

The companion Abdullah Ibn Omar (Allah be pleased with him) used to say, “When the evening comes, do not wait for the morning; and when the morning comes, do not wait for the evening.” – Collected by Al-Bukhari

Abdullah Ibn Omar r.a biasa berkata, “Jika malam tiba, jangan tunggu pagi; dan jika pagi datang, jangan tunggu malam.” – Al Bukhari

  1. Start with baby steps and achievable goals.

Mulai dengan langkah2 bayi (sebisamu, semampumu) dan tujuan/target yang dapat dicapai).

The Prophet said to his companions, “Is it difficult for any of you to recite one third of the Quran in one night?” This suggestion was difficult for them so they said, “Who among us has the power to do so, O Allah’s Apostle?” Allah Apostle replied, “‘Allah (the) One, the Self-Sufficient Master Whom all creatures need.’ (Surat Al-Ikhlas 112 verse one to the end) is equal to one third of the Quran.” – Collected by Al-Bukhari

“Nabi saw bersabda kepada para sahabat,” Apakah sulit bagimu untuk membaca Al Qur’an dalam satu malam?” Nasehat ini sulit bagi mereka, sehingga mereka berkata,” Siapa diantara kami yang mampu melakukan yang demikian, Oh Nabi Allah?” Rasullullah menjawab,”Allah Maha Tunggal, Maha mencukupi, Tuhan bagi seluruh makhluk ciptaannya yang membutuhkan.”(Surah Al-Ikhlas surat ke 112 adalah sama dengan sepertiga Al Qur’an).” – Al Bukhari.

The Prophet said, “Is one amongst you powerless to get one thousand virtues every day.” Amongst those who had been sitting there, one asked, “How one amongst us can get one thousand virtues every day?” He said, “Recite sub-hana Allah ” one hundred times for (by reciting them) one thousand virtues are recorded (to your credit) and one thousand vices are removed.” – Collected by Muslim

Nabi saw bersabda,”Apakah ada diantaramu yang tak sanggup melakukan 1000 kebaikan setiap hari?” Diantara yang duduk disana, ada yang bertanya,”Bagaimana mungkin ada diantara kami yang sanggup melakukan 1000 kebaikan setiap hari?” Dia berkata,”Baca Subhanallah” 100 kali untuk 1000 kebaikan bagi yang membacanya dan 1000 dosa/keburukan dihapuskan.” – Muslim.

  1. Be consistent. A small step a day, but for everyday.

Yang konsisten. Satu langkah kecil, lakukan setiap hari.

A’isha reported Allah’s Messenger as saying, “The acts most pleasing to Allah are those which are done continuously, even if they are small.” And when A’isha did any act she did it continuously.” – Collected by Muslim

A’isha mengatakan Rasul Allah berkata,”Perbuatan yang paling disukai Allah adalah yang dikerjakan terus menerus, meskipun itu kecil.” Dan jika A’isha melakukan sesuatu dia akan melakukannya terus menerus.” – Muslim

  1. Make sure you are changing towards the right direction.

Pastikan anda berubah menuju arah yang benar.

  1. Have a support group for your change.

Bentuk kelompok yang mendukung perubahan anda.

  1. Be patient.

Bersabarlah …(ingat surat Al-A’sr yang sudah kami broadcast sebelum ini?)

The above three tips are mentioned in Surah Al-A’sr 103.

“By (the Token of) Time (through the Ages), Verily Man is in loss, Except such as have Faith, and do righteous deeds, and (join together) in the mutual teaching of Truth, and of Patience and Constancy.” (A’sr 103)

  1. Never give up. If you trip, start again

Jangan putus asa. Jika gagal, atau salah, mulai lagi.

“Allah accepts only the repentance of those who do evil in ignorance and foolishness and repent soon afterwards; it is they to whom Allah will forgive and Allah is Ever AllÆKnower, AllÆWise.” (An-Nisa 4:17)

“Sesungguhnya bertobat kepada Allah itu hanya (pantas) bagi mereka yang melakukan kejahatan karena tidak mengerti atau karena kebodohan, kemudian segera bertobat. Tobat mereka itulah yang diterima Allah. Allah Maha Mengetahui, Maha Bijaksana.”

The Prophet said, “All children of Adam are sinners, and the best sinners are those who repent.” – Collected by Al-Termithi

Nabi saw berkata, “Semua anak Adam adalah berdosa, dan pendosa yang paling baik adalah mereka yang bertobat.” – Ath Tarmidzi

  1. Keep your eyes on the prize –  achievement, triumphant, and satisfaction

Perhatikan betul penghargaan/hadiah – pencapaian, kemashuran, dan kepuasan

“Verily this is the supreme achievement! For the like of this let all strive, who wish to strive.” (As-Saffat 37:60-61)

“Sungguh, ini benar-benar kemenangan yang agung. Untuk (kemenangan) serupa ini, hendaklah beramal orang-orang yang mampu beramal.”

  1. Always ask Allah for help

Selalu minta tolong (hanya) kepada Allah (saja).

(Ingat2! Hasbunallah wa ni’mal wakiil….red)

Allah’s Prophet used to say, “O Allah! I seek refuge with You from incapacity and laziness, from cowardice and geriatric old age, and I seek refuge with You from the afflictions of life and death, and I seek refuge with You from the punishment of the grave.” – Collected by Al-Bukhari

Rasulallah saw, biasa bersabda,”O Allah! Aku mohon perlindunganmu dari ketidakmampuan dan kemalasan, dari kepengecutan dan buruknya usia tua, dan aku berlindung kepadaMu dari penderitaan hidup dan kematian, dan aku mohon perlindunganMu dari siksa kubur.” – Al Bukhari.
