Mudah Faham

Assalamualaikum.

Tanya seorang kawan berkenaan apa yang dia lakukan untuk berubah, katanya dia mulakan dengan perbanyakkan baca al-Quran. Aku pun menyoalnya sebab dia berbuat sedemikian. Katanya al-Quran mampu melenturkan hati seseorang. Itu aku sudah tahu, tapi aku masih tak memahami sepenuhnya kepentingan kitab Allah itu.

Rasulullah juga telah bersabda bahawa pada akhir zaman ni, kita takkan sesat selagi kita berpegang kepada dua perkara ini, al-Quran dan sunnahnya. Al-Quran ni penting dalam hidup sebagai ultimate guide untuk mencari Islam yang sebenar. Kalam Allah ini walaupun telah diturunkan sekian lamanya, isi kandungannya fleksibel dan boleh diaplikasikan sepanjang zaman. Subhanallah. 

Aku sedar semua itu, tapi bagaimana al-Quran itu boleh menyucikan hati aku? Bisik hatiku lagi. Aku masih merangkak dalam membacanya dengan tajwid dan tidak faham apa yang kubacakan apabila tidak merujuk terjemahannya. How come can I love something that I don't even understand at first?

Aku mula melayari Internet bagi mendapatkan penerangan pantas. Akhirnya, aku berjaya menemukan laman sesawang bahasa Inggeris yang menyiarkan tentang al-Quran dan hati. Berikut adalah kisah tersebut, 

An old American Muslim lived on a farm in the mountains of eastern Kentucky with his young grandson. Each morning Grandpa was up early sitting at the kitchen table reading his Quran. His grandson wanted to be just like him and tried to imitate him in every way he could.
One day the grandson asked, "Grandpa! I try to read the Quran just like you but I don't understand it, and what I do understand I forget as soon as I close the book. What good does reading the Qur'an do?"The Grandfather quietly turned from putting coal in the stove and replied, "Take this coal basket down to the river and bring me back a basket of water."The boy did as he was told, but all the water leaked out before he got back to the house. The grandfather laughed and said, "You'll have to move a little faster next time," and sent him back to the river with the basket to try again. This time the boy ran faster, but again the basket was empty before he returned home. Out of breath, he told his grandfather that it was impossible to carry water in a basket, and he went to get a bucket instead. 
The old man said, "I don't want a bucket of water; I want a basket of water. You're just not trying hard enough," and he went out the door to watch the boy try again.At this point, the boy knew it was impossible, but he wanted to show his grandfather that even if he ran as fast as he could, the water would leak out before he got back to the house. The boy again dipped the basket into river and ran hard, but when he reached his grandfather the basket was again empty. Out of breath, he said, "See Grandpa, it's useless!""So you think it is useless?" The old man said, "Look at the basket." The boy looked at the basket and for the first time realized that the basket was different. It had been transformed from a dirty old coal basket and was now clean, inside and out."Son, that's what happens when you read the Qur'an. You might not understand or remember everything, but when you read it, you will be changed, inside and out. That is the work of Allah in our lives." 

Aku tersenyum sesudah membacanya. Aku jelas akan penyampaiannya yang mudah. Rupa-rupanya aku hanya perlu keep on reading it kerana insyaAllah sentimen-sentimen al-Quran itu akan meresap dalam hati aku ibarat air yang dititiskan pada batu, yang berupaya melekukkannya. 

Nampaknya hati aku mudah menerima pedoman yang baik dalam bentuk cerita teladan dan juga novel tarbiah seperti Contengan Jalanan dan HERO. Alhamdulillah kerana membantu aku mengenali diriku.

Tata! Assalamualaikum.
