Istiqomah, Istikhara and Istighfar

The world we live in is the planet that is always spinning , no day no night . Wheel of life is also the world never stops , sometimes up sometimes down . There is no sorrow like . No smiles no tears . Sometimes praised but at some point we scorned . Do not expect there to eternity life's journey . Therefore, in order not tossed around and stand tall in the face of any possible challenges in life we have to have a handle and amalam in life . One of the handles and important practice religion given us to face this life is Istiqomah , Istikhara and Istighfar .

1 . Istiqomah , which is solid in the faith and conviction and consistent in worship . Once the importance of this to the Prophet Muhammad Istiqomah Shallahu ' alaihi wassalam notice to a person as in the following hadith :

عن أبي سفيان بن عبد الله رضي الله علنه قال : قلت يا رسول الله , قل لي فى الإسلام قولا لا أسأله عنه أحدا غيرك , قال : قل آمنت بالله ثم استقم ( رواه مسلم )

Of Abu Sufyan ibn Abdillah radhiallahu ' anhu said : I said , " O Apostle of God say to me the message of Islam so I do not need to tell anyone other than you . The Prophet replied , " let's say I have faith in God then istiqomahlah " .


People who istiqomah always solid in aqidah and does not shake the faith with the challenges of life . Though faced with the challenges of life , worship did not participate dim , dry bag or thick , still consider haram yard , verbally praise , prostration abstinence quit , even though he has the facilities , he was not tempted vile acts .


People like that who praised Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala in Al - qura'an letter fusilat paragraph 30


. إن الذين قالوا ربنا الله ثم استقاموا تتنزل عليهم الملائكة ألا تخافوا ولا تحزنوا وأبشروا بالجنة التي كنتم توعدون

Those of which says : " Our god is Allah ' then they meneguhakan their establishment , then the angels will descend upon them ( with mengetakan ) : " do not be afraid , and do not feel sad , and rejoice in the heaven that God had promised unto you " .


2 . Istikharah , always ask God guidance in every step and full consideration in every decision .


Everyone has the freedom to speak and perform an action . However, according to Islam , there is no freedom without limits , and those limits are religious rules . Then a true Muslim , always think many times before taking action or say a greeting and she always ask directions to God .


Prophet of Allaah 'alaihi wassalam once said :

من كان يؤمن بالله واليوم الآخر فليقل خيرا أو ليصمت . ( رواه البخاري ومسلم عن أبي هريرة


He who believes in Allah and the Last Day , then said good or keep silent . ( Reported by al - Bukhari and Muslim from Abu Hurayrah )


The wise man said, " Think today and speak tomorrow" ( think a talk today and tomorrow ) .

If it's no good saying let alone to endure the pain of others , do not diucapakn , even if the speech withstand pain . But if it is true and good words , say we do not detained because the tongue can become weak to shout the truth and upholding justice and doing good and avoiding wrongdoing .


Regarding freedom , the angel Gabriel came to Prophet Muhammad never Shallahu ' alai wa salam to give signs of life , he said:


أتاني جبريل فقال : يا محمد عش ما شئت فإنك ميت , وأحبب ما شئت فإنك مفارق , واعمل ما شئت فإنك مجزي به . ( رواه البيهقي عن جابر

Jibril came to me and said : O Muhammad live as you please , but in fact you will surely die someday , love what you love, but you definitely berpdisah also suatua time and do what you truly want it all no return. ( Narrated by al- Bayhaqi and Jabir )


Prophet Muhammad's Shallahu alihi is increasingly important for when infused lately under the pretext of freedom , many people speak without logic and data is correct and sekehaendaknya act without regard to religious ethics . Experts goods times to the current moment , it is wise to listen more than talk that sometimes it confuses people .


Istikharah we promote in all our steps , so that we really act properly and not cause disappointment later .


Prophet Muhammad Shallahu ' alahi wa sallam said :

ما خاب من استخار ولا ندم من استشار ولا عال من اقتصد .


Beristikharah not lose people , do not be disappointed people who will be consulted and not poor people whose life -saving . (Narrated from Anas Thabrani )


2 . Seek forgiveness , which is always self-introspection and ask forgiveness to God .

Everyone has made a mistake both as individuals and as a nation error . Every mistake and sin actually devastating disease of our lives . Therefore he should be treated .


Not a few of the problems we are facing lately caused our own fault . Past time for us to introspection , beg forgiveness of Allah , make corrections to the dawn of a brighter future with full keridloaan God .

In economic matters , if rizki God is not up to us due to our mistake , then it is treated the lazy nature . We should not be the laziest people . Lazy is the part of our enemies . If the economic difficulties , because we are less able to make breakthroughs productive creativity and work ethic then the people who need us grow .


Allah says which tells the Prophet hud Alaihissalam appeal , to his people:

وياقوم استغفروا ربكم ثم توبوا إليه يرسل السماء عليكم مدرارا ويزدكم قوة إلى قوتكم ولا تتولوا مجرمين


" And ( Hud ) said , O my people , ask forgiveness of your Lord and then repent kepadakNya , undoubtedly in a very heavy rain down upon you , and he will add strength and do not be turned away by sinning " ( Surah 52 )


Once again , there is no quiet life of challenges and temptations . In order for us to stay strong and survive the waves of life , can not but we have to have and do three good deeds over the Istiqomah , Istikhara , Isrighfar .


Hopefully God gives us the strength to look to the future

with faith and His abundant grace . amen
