I’m not a fan of conspiracy theories. But, heck, it happens. 😀
This morning, I watched some videos about “hidden” illuminati in Hollywood. Somehow I was smiling. I mean, come on….. really? Why the world was so surprised about it? Illuminati, if you relate it with worshipping satan, making a move to shift human moral, well that is no really big news for us Muslim. 🙂 We already knew, since the beginning we’re declaring the syahadah (shahadah).
Let me explain a bit to you, dear readers.. 😉
After the syahadah, we do shalat (five times a day), then we learn the Qur’an and hadiths. Al-Qur’an is not only a noble book. It’s a guide to live a good life as Allah wants. Because, to be frank, Allah don’t really need us to worship Him, but we NEED to worship Allah, because it’s the only right way to live, if you knew. And because the truths of life do not need our consent.
For example, a simple math: 1 + 1 = 2. That’s the right equation. The truth. We all know this. We’ve checked and count it ourselves.
But some people wanted it to be 1 + 1 = 3, because they just love the number 3. And they denied number 2. They try so hard to make this “3” as the right equation of 1 + 1 instead.
And we, who already knew the right equation (the truth), just all smiled about these some-people’s stubborn to make 1 + 1 = 3. Because they seem to forget, the lust (on what ever efforts) never reign over truth.
In Islam, the Rasulullah (prophet) Muhammad Salallahu ‘Alaihi Wassalam (peace be upon him), ask us, Muslims, to prefer to leave them rather than debating. Not because we’re scared to, but a debate certainly might spark anger–and anger is the way for satan to get into our hearts. To provoke self-arrogant, for knowing that we’re correct and others are wrong. Beside, debating is a waste of time, really. And satan loves it if we waste our time on worldly matter. Because that means you’re forgetting Allah. We don’t want that, do we? 🙂
Okay, back to the youtube channel about illuminati, well, what can I say..
All we know, thanks to the Qur’an reading, since the creation of Adam, Satan’s hatred of men made him swore to take as many as human to deny Allah and follow him (satan) instead. Allah reprieved satan, give him time to fulfill his swear, and letting human choose who will be the one they worship: Allah or satan. And in the end, whoever follow satan, they will all go to hell. It’s no new to us, really. 🙂
All we have to do is not to follow satan. It’s that “simple”. Well, it’s actually not that simple, since the world is already below satan’s feet. Like this illuminati thing. But we, followers of Allah, will not give up so easily either. Heaven is totally worth fighting for. 😉
As it is said in the Al-Qur’an, Surah Al A’raf (Q.S. 7), verses:
13. [Allah] said, “Descend from Paradise, for it is not for you to be arrogant therein. So get out; indeed, you are of the debased.
14. [Satan] said, “Reprieve me until the Day they are resurrected.”
15. [Allah] said, “Indeed, you are of those reprieved.”
16. [Satan] said, “Because You have put me in error, I will surely sit in wait for them on Your straight path.
17. Then I will come to them from before them and from behind them and on their right and on their left, and You will not find most of them grateful [to You].”
18. [Allah] said, “Get out of Paradise, reproached and expelled. Whoever follows you among them – I will surely fill Hell with you, all together.”
So, if these satan worshippers made a move via this illuminati organization, I personally won’t be so surprised. 🙂 Simply, don’t follow and fall for their games.
You, dear readers, won’t believe how amazing the work of Allah is. We all know Allah mostly works in a secretive way. Sometimes Allah shows it too. And if Allah shows it to me, by making me realize it, I started to feel awed about it: Wow, God, really… I mean, WOW! Mashallah! It happened to me so many many MANY times I can’t even pick one to write here.
Okay, a simple example, there was a terrible accident occurred on the street which I cross daily. In that fate night, Tuesday, January 20, 2015, a suspected-junkie drove recklessly, he hit two cars, several motorbikes and killed 4 people. It happened around 20.30 WIB (Western-Indonesia time), you can read the news here. It’s in Bahasa Indonesia, sorry:

Without being sarcastic, but I have to say “Alhamdulillah” (thank God) because I and my son didn’t have to be the witness of that horrific accident. Because that night, my son came to pick me from the office about an hour late from the usual 19.00 WIB. My son said, he was overslept, so he came up late. It was way past my office hour and I was tired from all the day work, but I didn’t get mad at him. I was just thiking, everything happen for a reason. Who knows that I was literally right? So we left the office at 20.20 WIB. And it takes about 15-20 minutes from my office at Bendungan Hilir (Jakarta Pusat) to the accident scene at Arteri Pondok Indah (Jakarta Selatan).
When our motorbike passing through Simprug area (1-2 kilometers away from the accident) the traffic was already stuck. I finally told my son to take another route and avoid the traffic jam without knowing that the accident had happened and 4 bikers killed at the scene. I could not imagine if my son didn’t come late, we might as well witness the horror, or even become one of the victims there. *Pray for accident victims, may Allah rest them in peace*
In short, I know that the world will conspire to destroy my faith and corrupt my moral, but since I hand everything of my life in Allah’s hands, Allah is taking care of me instead. It’s like a paradox. Logically, you can handle everything yourselves and ended up on result you wanted. But if you hand everything to Allah, you’d ended up on results way beyond you wanted–it is anything you needed.
So, even if this illuminati rule the world, I think I will just keep on doing what a Muslim should do: consult Allah via shalat and consult Qur’an and hadiths even more for advice. I believe, Allah will prevent us from such evil, even though we are just mere humans, far from perfect and sinful. And since we love Allah, we are doing our best to please Allah, by keeping our patience and calmness.
And, oh, if you readers remember yesterday I wrote about “am I depressed?“.
Well, yes I am depressed, indeed. Sometimes it happens. All the roughness and toughness of the world sometimes hit me in the stomach, or bitch-slap (ahem, pardon my French 😀 ) me in the face. They made me weep and crawl.
I used to talk to Mom about what ever bothers me. But, my Mom has moved on from this world–may Allah take care of her there in the afterlife. So I texted and talked to my boyfriend, who lives about 3,700 km away from me. Of course he didn’t like me being whiny. He scolded me for forgetting Allah. “Desperation is a sin. Have you no faith on Allah, woman?” he wrote me.
Sounds harsh? Well, not for me. Okay, it’s a much bigger bitch-slap for me, but I do need that. My man really knows how to handle me, even from afar. Thank you, Hon. Thank You, Allah. My man’s sharp words remind me of these verses from Surah Al-Baqarah (The Cow)
To realize that these troubles are “only” a trial, I feel calm. In other hand, we also have declared ourselves to have faith on qada’ and qadar (fate). That means, everything has been written by Allah. Directed by Allah. Guided by Allah. And as we all know, after the bad times there will come the good times, and also will come another bad times and then good again, so on and on. As it said in the Surah At-Talaq, verse 7:
Allah does not charge a soul except [according to] what He has given it. Allah will bring about, after hardship, ease.
See? So, take it easy. Be patient and calm down. 🙂 Allah likes that from human. Come on, who doesn’t want to be loved by Allah? And if we wanted to be loved by God, then we’re doing our best to walk by His rules, right? It will not be easy, but with Allah’s help, we will make it through this storm (of life) and arrive in the garden of heaven. Inshallah. Aamiin ya Rabbal al-amin..
Have faith! 😉
