KISAH PEREMPUAN YANG BIJAK LAGI BENAR FIRASATNYA

KISAH PEREMPUAN YANG BIJAK LAGI BENAR FIRASATNYA

Oleh: Abdullah Bukhari bun Abdul Rahim.

Tadabbur ringkas juzuk 20 sempena hari ke 20 Ramadhan

Jika Allah sebut dan puji secara khusus seseorang insan dalam al-Quran, pastinya individu itu manusia hebat yang perlu diberi perhatian. Antara insan istimewa yang disebut al-Quran adalah seorang perempuan di Madyan. Perempuan ini kemudiannya menjadi isteri penyokong dakwah nabi Musa AS.

Ketika muda, nabi Musa AS pernah tersilap langkah menumbuk mati seorang lelaki berbangsa Qibti. Baginda kemudiannya diburu dan akibatnya baginda terpaksa melarikan diri jauh ke Madyan. Anda boleh rujuk surah (al-Qasas 28:15-22). Ketika di sana, nabi Musa AS membantu 2 perempuan mengambil air untuk ternakan mereka.

Diringkaskan cerita, baginda kemudiannya dijemput ayah perempuan tersebut ke rumah. Kisah perempuan ini mempunyai banyak pengajaran berharga untuk semua perempuan di luar sana. Ayuh kita ikuti kisahnya:

فَجَاءَتْهُ إِحْدَاهُمَا تَمْشِي عَلَى اسْتِحْيَاءٍ قَالَتْ إِنَّ أَبِي يَدْعُوكَ لِيَجْزِيَكَ أَجْرَ مَا سَقَيْتَ لَنَا

Ertinya: Kemudian seorang daripada perempuan dua beradik itu datang mendapatkannya (musa yang sedang berteduh di bawah sebatang pokok) dengan “BERJALAN DALAM KEADAAN TERSIPU-SIPU MALU” sambil berkata:" Sebenarnya bapaku menjemputmu untuk membalas budimu memberi minum binatang ternak kami” (al-Qasas [28:25]).

Frasa berjalan dalam keadaan malu ini menunjukkan nilai iman beliau kerana malu adalah komestik terindah seorang wanita beriman. Oleh itu, semua ibu bapa sana wajib memakaikan anak perempuan mereka dengan kosmetik ini. Indahnya, walaupun malu, perempuan ini masih aktif menjalankan arahan bapanya dan bukannya membantut geraknya kerana malu tak bertempat.

Setelah nabi Musa AS bertemu ayahnya, perempuan ini menunjukkan analisisnya yang sungguh bijaksana. Ia disambung rekod oleh Allah:

قَالَتْ إِحْدَاهُمَا يَا أَبَتِ اسْتَأْجِرْهُ إِنَّ خَيْرَ مَنِ اسْتَأْجَرْتَ الْقَوِيُّ الْأَمِينُ

Ertinya: Seorang di antara perempuan yang berdua itu berkata: "Wahai ayah, ambilah dia menjadi orang upahan (berkerja dan mengembala kambing kita), SESUNGGUHNYA SEBAIK-BAIK ORANG YANG AYAH AMBIL BEKERJA IALAH ORANG YANG KUAT, LAGI AMANAH" (al-Qasas [28:26]).

DUA kriteria yang diungkapnya “KUAT (mampu melaksana kerja dengan jaya) dan AMANAH”, adalah DUA KUNCI UTAMA dalam pemilihan pekerja atau pemimpin. Ayah perempuan ini sangsi seketika. Bagaimana anaknya ini tahu kedua kualiti hebat itu dimiliki Musa AS sedangkan mereka baru sehari bertemu. Si anaknya menjelaskan:

قالت: إنه رفع الصخرة التي لا يطيق حملها إلا عشرة رجال، وإنه لما جئت معه تقدمتُ أمامهُ، فقال لي: كوني من ورائي، فإذا اجتنبت الطريق فاحذفي لي بحصاة أعلم بها كيف الطريق لأتهدّى إليه.

Ertinya: Perempuan itu berkata “Beliau (seorang diri) mengangkat (batu penutup perigi Madyan) yang tak mampu diangkat melainkan dengan kekuatan 10 lelaki. Tambahan pula apabila aku berjalan di hadapannya (ketika menjemputnya ke rumah kita), beliau berkata: Saudari berjalanlah di belakangku. Apabila aku menyimpang dari jalan ke rumahmu, lontarkan batu kepadaku supaya aku tahu mana jalannya (Tafsir Ibn Kathir).

Hebat sekali mata hati perempuan ini, pandangannya bukan pandangan kosong tetapi pandangan bijaksana menganalisis kewibawaan Musa. Benar sekali pujian Abdullah bin Mas’ud kepada beliau (Tafsir al-Tabari):

أفرس الناس ثلاثة: العزيز حين تفرّس في يوسف فقال لامرأته:(أكرمي مثواه عسى أن ينفعنا أو نتخذه ولدًا) = وأبو بكر حين تفرَّس في عمر = والتي قالت:( يَا أَبَتِ اسْتَأْجِرْهُ إِنَّ خَيْرَ مَنِ اسْتَأْجَرْتَ الْقَوِيُّ الأَمِينُ )

Ertinya: Manusia yang benar firasatnya ada tiga iaitu;
(1) Aziz Mesir ketika dia nampak kualiti Yusuf dan meminta isterinya memuliakan keadaan Yusuf pada firman Allah (Dan [setelah Yusuf dijual di negeri Mesir], berkatalah orang yang membeli Yusuf kepada isterinya: "Berilah dia layanan yang sebaik-baiknya; semoga ia berguna kepada kita, atau kita jadikan dia anak" (Yusuf[12:21]),
(2) Abu Bakar RA apabila beliau melihat Umar selayaknya menjadi khalifah selepasnya dan,
(3) Perempuan dalam kisah Musa (al-Qasas[28:26]).

Rupanya peristiwa bunuh tak sengaja dan mangsa buruan bangsa Fir’awn sehingga membawa nabi Musa AS ke Madyan adalah sebab untuk Allah temukan jodoh baginda dengan perempuan hebat ini. Jika Rasulullah SAW didampingi wanita hebat dan bijaksana seperti Khadijah, Aishah, Ummu Salamah dan sebagainya. Nabi Musa AS pula didampingi oleh perempuan ini yang kemudiannya dijodohkan oleh bapanya:

قَالَ إِنِّي أُرِيدُ أَنْ أُنْكِحَكَ إِحْدَى ابْنَتَيَّ هَاتَيْنِ عَلَى أَنْ تَأْجُرَنِي ثَمَانِيَ حِجَجٍ

Ertinya: Bapa perempuan itu berkata (kepada Musa): "Aku hendak mengahwinkanmu dengan salah seorang dari dua anak perempuanku ini, dengan syarat bahawa engkau bekerja denganku selama lapan tahun (al-Qasas[28:27]).

Kepada yang belum berkahwin, pilihlah calon isteri yang beragama dan bijaksana seperti isteri nabi Musa AS. Kepada yang sudah berkahwin, isilah diri anda dengan ilmu dan iman agar sifat solehah dan bijaksana turut menempati hati dan akal anda. Yakinlah kita belum terlewat untuk menjadi soleh dan bijak walaupun selepas berkahwin. Jika sudah memiliki anak lelaki, didiklah mereka agar menjadi soleh, kuat dan amanah seperti Musa. Jika kita memiliki anak perempuan, didiklah mereka agar menjadi solehah, pemalu bertempat dan bijaksana seperti isteri nabi Musa AS. Percayalah! Kualiti seperti keluarga para nabi inilah yang akan mengangkat darjat Islam di dunia.

Iftar and Teraweeh at Slim River

 (View of the Ramadan Bazaar from Room 402. I managed to buy Nasi Ayam Madu for the hotel's Muslim staff for their iftar. As for me, I bought nasi kerabu (all time favourite) and a few kuihs too.  Nasi Kerabu is for my iftar. The kuihs are for after Teraweeh.)

 (Iftar with sisters at Masjid Sultan Idris Shah II, Slim River.  There is also a Masjid with the same name in Ipoh  Here the Iftar is served buffet.)

 (My nasi kerabu. Also three pieces of Ajwa dates. Alhamdulillah)


 (These kuihs I took from the buffet table.  Two pieces epok-epok and a sambal doughnut)

 (The prayer hall, waiting for Teraweeh to begin)

Iftar at Masjid Makmuriah Sungai Besar

We arrived Sungai Besar and checked into Hotel Kompit before proceeding to Masjid Makmuriah for our Iftar and Teraweeh prayers. Alhamdulillah.

I forgot to take a picture during Iftar with the other ladies here.  Iftar was served the old fashion way, ie. tudung sajis were used to cover the food served on dulangs.  No buffet here.  So, four ladies to each dulang.  Since I bought Nasi Ambeng at the Bazar Ramadan in Sungai Besar town, I shared the Nasi Ambeng with the other ladies too. Alhamdulillah.

After solat Maghrib, when I need to take ablution again, I was very impressed with the cleanliness and stench free ladies toilet and also the ablution area.  Kudos to the AJK Masjid Makmuriah.

We returned to the hotel after Teraweeh and had our supper in our room.  We ate the kuihs which I bought at the bazar in Sungai Besar, Alhamdulillah.






(Hubby took this selfie and here is the plastic blue tudung saji and the food served in the dulang)



(if hungry in the middle of the night can find this vending machine at the Lobby, Kompit Hotel)

Iftar at Masjid Sultan Idris Shah II, Slim River

I followed hubby to Slim River after I left the hospital.  Well, the surgery was just a small one.  No pain more when I walked.  So, jalan-jalan lah....hehehe...

We left after solat Zuhur.  It was raining when we left Kajang.  During the journey, I slept from Shah Alam on wards.  Then hubby woke me up when we arrived at a Masjid just before reaching Tanjong Malim. We had our solat Asar there.  I also received a packet of bubur lambuk at the Masjid. Alhamdulillah.

Then we went to Pekan Behrang bazaar Ramadan to buy food for iftar.  I bought nasi kerabu, one of my favourite dishes and also traditional kuehs.  I hope the pulut panggang and lepat pisang, also the epok2 gergasi will be delicious too.  Hubby bought this kuih tepung putih which he had never eaten before. I was curious too re its taste.  Well, have to wait till iftar.

When we arrived at Summit Signature Hotel in Slim River, it was already 6pm. So we got ready for Maghrib and Iftar.  Hubby suggested we have Iftar at the Masjid Slim River, Maghrib and also Eshaq and Teraweeh prayers.  In shaa Allah.

At the Masjid, I joined the Muslimah group for Iftar.  There were about forty of us.  Since I brought my own food for Iftar, I did not queue at the buffet table.  But I did choose to take two pieces of kuih burger bom (mini bun sandwich stuffed with sambal tumis ikan bilis) after everyone has taken theirs.

Alhamdulillah after Iftar, then solat Maghrib, I read the Noble Quran continuing from where I left off. Alhamdulillah I managed to complete Juzuk 6. After solat Eshaq and Teraweeh (we did only eight rakaats plus three Witir) we returned to the hotel.

Hubby finally ate the kuih tepung putih,  He said it was sedap (delicious) but the inti kelapa too sikit. Hehehee.... He said sure tangan orang tuo buat ni...

I finally slept at 11.30pm.  Exhausted but happy.  Alhamdulillah.

Hubby? He was still on his handphone. Hahahaaa.......

My Right Toe Nail



It was after solat Witir at Masjid Uniten last night, when I was adjusting my right foot to sit properly, that I suddenly felt a sharp pain on my right toe nail. It lasted for a few seconds.  So I just ignored it.

Then when I arrived home, I took off my socks and took a look at my toe nail.  Nothing abnormal so I went to the kitchen and have mee hoon soup.  Always hungry after Teraweeh. Hehehe....

When I woke up for Sahoor this morning, and was removing my socks (I slept with socks on) to go to the bathroom, that I felt that sharp pain again.  So I removed the socks slowly.  Then took another look at my toe nail.  But this time I touched it and.....Subhanallah....the toe nail was coming off.  I could flip it open.  So takut.....

I then took a video and post it to my family wassap group since everyone was still asleep.  Then after sahoor, no one asked about my toe nail.  Well, I guess they have not seen the video.  Never mind lah. Do not want to worry everyone.

As usual after solat Fajr and reading the Noble Quran, I went back to sleep.  When I woke up, there was nobody at home.  Then I called KPJ Kajang to see Dr Surendra Masilamoney (orthopaedic surgeon) but his nurse informed me to get a GL from our panel clinic.

At the panel clinic, the doctor said she could remove the nail for me.  But I refused and insisted to see a specialist.  Then with the GL I went to see Dr Surendra. Alhamdulillah, Dr Surendra explained the problem and procedure very professionally unlike the doctor at the panel clinic.

In shaa Allah, surgery scheduled tomorrow at 9.30am.

Iftar with Family

(Khairulzaman took these photos using his new mobile)


(Medina being fed lunch by her papa before 'balik kampong for Iftar. 😀)


The contractor came this morning to replace our toilet with a new one.  It uses hydraulic when covering the toilet seat after use. Heheee.... It also has a foot stool to put both feet when using the w.c. as though we are squatting when using it. Hahahaa.....

Anyway all my children and cucus 'balik kampong' to have Iftar with us.  It was funny when I heard the balik kampong coming from kak ngah.  Her house is so close to us and took her and family hardly five minutes to arrive.  Balik kampong indeed.😄 😍
