Are You Moslem? Then Recite!

English Version of this post

In this life, we are often overwhelmed by the questions, how to live this life, how to run the religion as a Muslim. Well' it's natural as human being. We as human beings who expect the face of his Lord will certainly make every effort to do as God wants. And that's why God sent down the Qur'an as a guide and the Prophet Muhammad has left hundreds guidance recorded in the Hadith.

After the Great Prophet's gone, the differences begin to arise. The latest is the discussion between me and my friend about the law of collective sacrifice.


Actually, we need no debating, the law is clear. I've given an explanation about it at my post before. I really regret if there are parties who are not directly responsible to judge something without holding on the law.

ولا تقف ما ليس لك به علم إن السمع والبصر والفؤاد كل أولئك كان عنه مسئولا

And pursue not that of which thou hast no knowledge; for every act of hearing, or of seeing or of (feeling in) the heart will be enquired into (on the Day of Reckoning). (Al-Israa ': 36) 

Religion Islam is not just the Question and Answer, not just "can I", "whether the law?", "How the law", "is it allowed?". Islam is not like that. Islam has laws that govern everything.

So, how can we know those laws? Reciting! The only way is that we must seek knowledge, not seeking, demanding instead! Surely the most valid sources, the most legitimate, and is the most complete among all is AlQuran and AlHadith, not books, or question-answers that dont include the arguments to the questions we often ask. 

From the 'debate', I'm increasingly convinced of the importance of chanting the Qoran and Alhadits. By reciting, we really know a law origins and how the law is held. If I do not chant, of course I doubt so, whether the devotions are correct or not, and maybe I'll believe it with what my friend said. But as I chant, I believe that my devotions is true, legitimate, and will get a reward that Allah promised to His servants. 

(Again) I take the example of a discussion with my friend about qurban some time ago. Actually, my friend was not one hundred percent wrong in saying that they have to be seven people to sacrifice cow or ten people for a camel. It happened in the time of the Prophet Muhammad, but actually, it was not the maximum people have to sacrifice. It didnt mean you are just allowed to sacrifice acow collectively with other six people. 
But it seems he only bits and pieces that hadith interpret without seeing how his history. Or he just read the pieces. Well here's where the importance of the learning Quranby manqul, Musnad, muttasil. We'll get it all in complete, ranging from descriptions, technically, its ban, the rules, completely true. If we only know bits and pieces, then the interpretation will be different.

يرفع الله الذين آمنوا منكم والذين أوتوا العلم درجات والله بما تعملون خبير

Allah will rise up, to (suitable) ranks (and degrees), those of you who believe and who have been granted (mystic) Knowledge. And Allah is well- acquainted with all ye do. (AlMujadilah: 11) 

That's why, I often invite my friends to recite. By reciting Quran and hadits, we will have of understanding, so we know somethingis right, or something is wrong.

You claim you're moslem, but not reciting, not knowing the laws of Islam, aren't you ashamed with God, Prophet, and all of His creation?
