SUCCESS & FAILURE

There are two people that live in each one of us. One of their names is "Success" and the other’s is "Failure". They are always talking to you but sometimes, one is yelling louder than the other.

Unfortunately, it is usually Failure. No matter what you try to achieve, he yells out, "failure, failure". Most of us listen and are inclined to give up.

But if you fight against that voice and never give up, you will always find that "Success" will catch his breathe right when you need it the most. He will yell out in a triumphant voice, "You’re a winner, you can do it". If you always allow successful thinking to energize you, you will find that soon "Failure" will fall off your shoulder. NEVER GIVE UP!"

Success....

" You are never given a wish without also being given the power to make it come true. However, you may have to work for it. In everything you do, always give a hundred percent and you’ll never have to second guess yourself. Your work is to discover your work and then, with all your heart, to give yourself to it. Apply yourself. Get all the education you can, but by then do something."



"" Success was not designed to be easy. If it was easy, everyone would be doing it."
Written in 2003 by Greg T. Sirpis — Maine"

“Leadership….

"Leadership is not magnetic personality - that can just as well be a glib tongue. It is not ‘making friends and influencing people’ - that is flattery. Leadership is lifting a person’s vision to high sights, the raising of a person’s performance to a higher standard, the building of a personality beyond its normal limitations. "

Peter F. Drucker (1909-2005)

Don't be Sad

Don’t be sad, my dear friend
don’t be a mad, my good bond
if you are sad, tell me why
and raise your hands to the sky
Lord of the worlds says in the Book
‘don’t be sad’ , my friend, look!
Do the good, shun from the bad
don’t be sad but be glad
You are a muslim, don’t be sad
you are a mu’min should be glad!
Be so glad, my dear friend,
To AL MUSTAFA we have bond.
Send greetings to our prophet;
and gain from it a big profit.
Use the sense and be the wise,
be cautious of losing chance.
Time and tide will not wait;
don’t forget this for a minute.
May the LORD bless our Prophet;
All the time, the time exists !
Aasger Hamza
if one does not change after learning about death, nothing will change him.

Air Mata Wanita...


me: ihsan dari blog kumpulan renungan (19 June 2006)...airmata peneman setia wanita...bukan tandanya ia lemah...

Suatu ketika, ada seorang anak laki-laki yang bertanya pada ibunya.
“Ibu, mengapa Ibu menangis?”.
ibunya menjawab, “Sebab, aku wanita.”
“Aku tak mengerti,” kata si anak lagi.
Ibunya hanya tersenyum dan memeluknya erat.


“Nak, kamu memang tak akan mengerti….” Kemudian, anak itu bertanya pada ayahnya.
“Ayah, mengapa Ibu menangis?.
Sepertinya Ibu menangis tanpa ada sebab yang jelas?
Sang ayah menjawab, “Semua wanita memang menangis tanpa ada alasan.
“Hanya itu jawaban yang bisa diberikan ayahnya.
Lama kemudian, si anak itu tumbuh menjadi remaja dan tetap bertanya-tanya, mengapa wanita menangis. Pada suatu malam, ia bermimpi dan bertanya kepada Tuhan.

“Ya Allah, mengapa wanita mudah sekali menangis?”
Dalam mimpinya, Tuhan menjawab, “Saat Kuciptakan wanita, aku membuatnya menjadi sangat utama. Kuciptakan bahunya, agar mampu menahan seluruh beban dunia dan isinya, walaupun juga, bahu itu harus cukup nyaman dan lembut untuk menahan kepala bayi yang sedang tertidur.
Kuberikan wanita kekuatan untuk dapat melahirkan, dan mengeluarkan bayi dari rahimnya, walau, seringkali pula, ia kerap berulangkali menerima cerca dari anaknya itu….

Kuberikan keperkasaan, yang akan membuatnya tetap bertahan, pantang menyerah, saat semua orang sudah putus asa.

Wanita, kuberikan kesabaran, untuk merawat keluarganya, walau letih,walau sakit, walau lelah, tanpa berkeluh kesah..

Kuberikan wanita, perasaan peka dan kasih sayang , untuk mencintai semua anaknya, dalam kondisi apapun, dan dalam situasi apapun. Walau, tak jarang anak-anaknya itu melukai perasaannya, melukai hatinya. Perasaan ini pula yang akan memberikan kehangatan pada bayi-bayi yang terkantuk menahan lelap. Sentuhan inilah yang akan memberikan kenyamanan saat didekap dengan lembut olehnya.

Kuberikan wanita kekuatan untuk membimbing suaminya, melalui masa-masa sulit, dan menjadi pelindung baginya. Sebab, bukankan tulang rusuk-lah yang melindungi setiap hati dan jantung agar tak terkoyak?

Kuberikan kepadanya kebijaksanaan, dan kemampuan untuk memberikan pengertian dan menyadarkan bahwa, suami yang baik adalah yang tak pernah melukai istrinya.

Walau, seringkali pula, kebijaksanaan itu akan menguji setiap kesetiaan yang diberikan kepada suami, agar tetap berdiri, sejajar, saling melengkapi, dan saling menyayangi.

Dan, akhirnya, kuberikan ia airmata agar dapat mencurahkan perasaannya. Inilah yang khusus kuberikan kepada wanita, agar dapat digunakan bila kapanpun ia inginkan.
Hanya inilah kelemahan yang dimiliki wanita, walaupun sebenarnya, airmata ini adalah airmata kehidupan.”

IF U…

Knowing This….

If you plant honesty, you will reap trust.
If you plant goodness, you will reap friends.
If you plant humility, you will reap greatness.
If you plant perseverance, you will reap victory.
If you plant consideration, you will reap harmony.
If you plant hard work, you will reap success.
If you plant forgiveness, you will reap reconciliation.
If you plant openness, you will reap intimacy.

If you plant sin, you will reap guilt.

So be careful what you plant now, It will determine what you will reap tomorrow, The seeds you now scatter, Will make life worse or better, your life or the ones who will come after. Yes, someday, you will enjoy the fruits, or you will pay for the choices you plant today.

I Often Think When I Might Sin *

I often think when I might sin,
What if the Angel would come to me then?
Would I want to be risen doing that sin?
I often think quietly to myself,
Where will I go, oh, where will I go,
When the Angel comes to me?
What if the Angel comes at night,
With a command from Allah to take my soul?
Where will I run, oh, where will I run?
What if the Angel comes to me when I’m driving my car?

Can I lock my doors, so the Angel can’t get in?
Where will I hide, oh where will I hide?

I often think when I might sin,


What if the Angel would come to me then?
Would I want to be risen doing that sin?
I often think quietly to myself,


Where will I go, oh where will I go,
When the Angel comes to me?

What if the Angel comes in the middle of tea?
Maybe I can plead for a later return.
How will I plead, oh, how will I plead?
What if the Angel comes to me when I’m watching TV?

Can I beg to the Angel for a little more time?
How will I beg, oh how will I beg?

I often think when I might sin,


What if the Angel would come to me then?
Would I want to be risen doing that sin?
I often think quietly to myself,
Where will I go, oh, where will I go?
When the Angel comes to me?

Ketidakpastian...



mengharap apa yang tidak pasti…

Spider ~Mungkinkah Terjadi~

Spider - Mungkinkah Terjadi

Sering kali hati bertanya
Tiap saat kita bersama
Sampai bilaku harus memendam rasa

Tak pernah aku merasai
Bibir terkunci
Jiwa bergelora rasa tak percaya
Adakah ku bermimpi
Mimpi di siang hari

( korus )
Dirimu… telah lama ku nantikan
Wajah yang bermain
Di mimpi-mimpiku
Hidupku.. kini bagaikan penjara
Tanpamu di sisi tak bermakna oh..oh..

Mungkinkah akan terjadi
Dirimu aku miliki
Berilah tanda kepastianmu
Namun jika tak tercapai
Harapanku
Selama hayat dirimu tetapku sanjungi

………………

Sadness & happiness.

"Truly in the heart there is a sadness that can not be removed except with the happiness of knowing Allah and being true to Him. And in it there is an emptiness that can not be filled except with love for Him and by turning to him and always remembering Him And if a person were given all of the world and what is in it, it would not fill this emptiness."

Ibn Qayyim al Jawziyyah

Give Me The Wolf’s Life

Give me the Wolf’s life; hunted, hungry, and free,
Keep your sled dog, and lap dog far from me,
I am Lakota, call me by the name of my kin,
Sioux I am not, nor American nor Indian,
Not native, nor tribal, nor other generic terms,
Oceti Sakowin, our ways, our life confirms,

My freedom is not dependent upon your whim and will,
I am free because I love and my love you cannot kill,
I am the wolf, and to the Wasicu I will not bow,
Intrinsic to my nature, and nature won’t allow,
Chained, caged, or trapped, my spirit still runs free,
No way that you can dampen, the freedom within me,

Give me the Wolf’s life; flee from me now greedy foe,
For there are many of us, far more than you could know,
Quietly we are born, and quietly we watch and learn,
Quietly we are growing, and quietly we yearn,
Yet if you listen to the earth, a rumble does grow more and more,
Quietly no longer, arrive we now to the fore,

Seven generations, attacked and reviled,
All my relation, unspeakably defiled,
Never surrendering hope, our Canunpas still intact,
Remembering every Inipi, and our sacred ancient pact,
Awakening now anew, fresh as the sun arised,
Shaking off deep slumber, our death had been surmised,

Give me the Wolf’s life; related, a hoop, a Hocoka,
Learning every wisdom, when beset by the Heyoka,
Hunger, and thirst, and heat and even cold,
Create within me strength, and make my footprints bold,
I live not for myself, I seek not gold or wine,
I cherish very little, only the affinity that is mine,

Hunt me, and seek my downfall, poison even my game,
Delight in my sorrow, but call me by my name,
Again, I say, I am Lakota, you can’t forget although you try,
For even your own memory, knows how much you like to lie,
Wasicu your time is short, taking fat for your tomorrow,
What stores have you laid up, to banish your coming sorrow?

Give me the Wolf’s life; lash upon me no tether,
Seek me not at your footstool; find me facing instead, the weather,
Strength and fortitude await me, relatives of mine they are,
Recognize me easily enough, remember they my every scar,
I fear not but for the fat-taker, what will be his poor lot,
When finally that day comes, and he realizes he owns not?

Note:
——
-Oceti Sakowin: "Seven Council Fires," is the Indian name for the great Sioux Nation.
-Wasicu: Whiteness as I see it.
-Canunpas: Sundance.
-Inipi: Sweat Lodge.
-Hoop: Spotted wood, sacred hoop dancer.
-Hocoka: Sacred Circle.
-Heyoka: A group of Lakota-Sioux Indians having had a vision.

Things Work Out

Because it rains when we wish it wouldn’t,
Because men do what they often shouldn’t,
Because crops fail, and plans go wrong-
Some of us grumble all day long.
But somehow, in spite of the care and doubt,
It seems at last that things work out.

Because we lose where we hoped to gain,
Because we suffer a little pain,
Because we must work when we’d like to play-
Some of us whimper along life’s way.
But somehow, as day always follows the night,
Most of our troubles work out all right.

Because we cannot forever smile,
Because we must trudge in the dust awhile,
Because we think that the way is long-
Some of us whimper that life’s all wrong.
But somehow we live and our sky grows bright,
And everything seems to work out all right.
So bend to your trouble and meet your care,
For the clouds must break, and the sky grow fair.
Let the rain come down, as it must and will,
But keep on working and hoping still.
For in spite of the grumblers who stand about,
Somehow, it seems, all things work out.
me: forward by a friend…and yes despite every hardship we face, worst or not, most of all it turns out to be okay...^_^

Words of Wisdom

Words of Wisdom from Prophet Mohammad

1.. "Acquire knowledge, it enables its professor to distinguish right from wrong; it lights the way to heaven. It is our friend in the desert, our company in solitude and companion when friendless. It guides us to happiness, it sustains us in misery, it is an ornament amongst friends and an armour against enemies." (widely attributed to the Prophet Mohammed (pbuh))
2.. "The most excellent Jihad is that for the conquest of self." (Bukhari)
3.. "Say what is true, although it may be bitter and displeasing to people." (Baihaqi)
4.. "Who are the learned? Those who practice what they know." (Bukhari)
5.. "Allah has revealed to me, that you must be humble. No one should boast over one another, and no one should oppress another." (Iyad b. Hinar al-Mujashi: Muslim)
6.. "Be not like the hypocrite who, when he talks, tells lies; when he gives a promise, he breaks it; and when he is trusted, he proves dishonest." (Bukhari & Muslim)
7.. "Keep yourselves far from envy; because it eats up and takes away good actions, like a fire eats up and burns wood." (Abu Daud)
8.. "It is better to sit alone than in company with the bad; and it is better still to sit with the good than alone. It is better to speak to a seeker of knowledge than to remain silent; but silence is better than idle words." (Bukhari)
9.. "If you do not feel ashamed of anything, then you can do whatever you like." (Abu-Masud: Bukhari)

IMAGINE…


I M A G I N E

Imagine yourself after you pass away
Imagine your grave through night and through day
Wishing that you did not do as they say
Wishing that you had got up and had prayed.

Imagine, my friends, the day that you died
Imagine all of the tears that they cried
Remember how it felt when your body was tied
Remember how it felt in the grave which you lied.

Imagine the day you’ll be called to account
Imagine the sum to which your life will amount
Think for a moment of the deeds which you mount
Think for a moment how much they will count.

What will they say of you when you are dead?
What will they say, what will be said?
Will they speak of all the poor who you fed?
Will they remember all the Qu’ran that you read?

Think not of them, but of Allah, Lord of mankind and jinn
Think of Allah when tempted to sin
Think of the paradise which you will dwell in
Don’t wait till later to think what might have been.

The Holy Prophet Muhammad sall-allahu ‘aliahi wa’sallam has said that whilst you are praying, imagine that all the prophets are on your right side, all the angels on your left, heaven in front of you, hell below you, the angel of death at your back and Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala watching over you.

Imagine how revered a prophet is, that an entire chapter of the Holy Qu’ran may be dedicated to him, imagine their position in heaven right now.

Imagine 124,000 of them (prophets) all lined up on your right side whilst you are praying. How then can you be distracted?

Imagine the sacredness of an angel. Every human being has been allocated two of them for accounting of his deeds. Every cloud moves because Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala has ordered an angel to that function.
("But verily over you are appointed angels to protect you - kind and honourable, writing down your deeds: They know and understand what you do. As for the Righteous, they will be in Bliss; And the Wicked, they will be in the Fire") Surah Al Infitar 82:10-14
Imagine the light from which each one of them was created, and all of them (much more than 6 billion) assembled on your left side listening to you praying. How then can you be distracted?

Imagine hell! In a Hadith-al-Qudsi, Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala says that hell will have seven levels with fires which eat each other! And in each level, there are valleys of fire, cities of fire, castles of fire, houses of fire, rooms of fire, wells of fire, serpents of fire, oceans of black poison containing thousands of scorpions of fire, each one in turn having seventy thousand tails of fire. In reality, hellish fire is much hotter than earthly fire, and hell is unimaginably much worse this description.

Imagine Heaven!! In Hadith-al-Qudsi, Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala says that heaven will have eight gates with thousands of gardens, thousands of cities of pearls, thousands of palaces of Ruby, thousands of rooms of gold, thousands of tables and of plates of jewels, thousands of kinds of food, thousands of thrones of red gold around each of which thousands of rivers will flow with life water and pure honey. On top of each palace, there will be thousands of gifts from the Merciful, which have not been seen by any eye, heard by any ear and are beyond our imagination.

It has been said that inspite of all this pleasure, if the residents of heaven were shown the punishment of someone who did wrong for just one hour on earth, they would scream out with fear. And in spite of all their discomfort, if the residents of hell were shown the reward of someone who did good for only one hour on earth, they would forget they are in hell! Now imagine this hell beneath you and the open doors of heaven in front of you whilst you are praying. How then can you be distracted?

Imagine the angel of death behind you, the angel that appears as a beautiful person at the deathbed of one who is favoured by Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala and as fierce creature that pulls the soul out as if it were a cloth being dragged amongst sharp thorns for one who is disfavoured. Imagine this angel just at your back whilst praying. How then can you be distracted if you are not even sure that this might be your last prayer?
And finally imagine the Creator of all that has been mentioned in the previous paragraphs, one Who has created an infinite universe of which earth is only a very tiny insignificant bit, and more insignificant are we who live in it. How then can you be distracted when Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala is watching above whilst you are offering prayers to Him?

Surah Al Tawbah
9:112
Those that turn (to Allah)
In repentance; that serve Him,
And praise Him; that wander
In devotion to the Cause of Allah;
That bow down and prostrate themselves
In prayer; that enjoins good
And forbid evil; and observe
The limits set by Allah ~
(These do rejoice). So proclaim
The glad tidings to the Believers
Asger Hamza

Object of despair

OBJECT OF DESPAIR
(By Fahim Firfiray)

Emma is a lawyer
And so is Aisha too
Colleagues going into court
At circa half past two

Its 1 O’Clock right now
They grab a bite before the trial
They chat about this and that
Conversing with a smile

Aisha is in full hijab
With a loose all over suit
Emma’s in her business wear
With accessories taboot

Emma’s really quite bemused
At Aisha’s godly ways
She looks Aisha in the eyes
And very firmly says

You’re a smart girl Aisha
Why do you wear that across your hair?
Subjugated by "man"-kind
An object of despair

Take it off my sister
Let your banner be unfurled
Don’t blindly follow all around
DECLARE YOUR FREEDOM TO THE WORLD

Aisha is amazed
But not the least bit shy
She bravely puts her milkshake down
And gives Emma the reply

My dear sister Emma,
Why do you dress the way you do?
The skirt you’re wearing round your waist,
Is it really you?

Now that we’ve sat down
I see you tug it across your thighs,
Do you feel ashamed?
Aware of prying eyes?

I see the way you’re sitting,
Both legs joined at the knees,
Who forces you to sit like that?
Do you feel at ease?

I’ll tell you who obliges you,
To dress the way you do,
Gucci, Klein, and St. Laurent
All have designs on you!

In the main, its men my friend,
Who dictate the whims of fashion,
Generating all the garb,
To incite the basest passion

"Sex Sells" there is no doubt
But who buys with such great haste,
The answer is likes like you,
Because they want to be embraced…

They want to be accepted,
On a level playing field
Sure, with brain and intellect
But with body parts revealed

Intelligence and reason
Are useful by and by
But if you want to make a mark
Stay appealing to the eye

You claim your skirt is office like
A business dress of sorts
Would we not laugh at Tony Blair?
If he turned up in shorts?

His could be the poshest of pants
Pinstripe from Saville Rowe
But walking round like that my friend
He’d really have to go

Why do you douse yourself in creams
To make your skin so milky?
Why do you rip off all your hair
To keep your body silky?

A simple shower’s all you need
To stay respectable and clean
The time and money that you spend
Is really quite obscene

Why do you wake up at dawn,
To apply a firm foundation,
Topped with make up and the like,
In one chaotic combination?

And if you should have to leave the house
Devoid of this routine
Why do you feel insecure
That you should not be seen?

Be free my sister Emma
Escape from your deep mire
Don hijab today my friend
And all Islam’s attire

Avoid all those sickly stares
Or whistles from afar
Walk down the street with dignity
Take pride in who you are

Strength lies in anonymity
Be a shadow in the crowd
Until you speak and interact
When your voice will carry loud

You’re a smart girl Emma
Wear this across your hair
Don’t be subjegated by "man"-kind
An object of despair

To use your very words my friend
Let your banner be unfurled
Don’t blindly follow all around
DECLARE YOUR FREEDOM TO THE WORLD

forward by a sister…

A dialogue between a flower and a pearl


A dialogue between a flower and a pearl.
One day, a brilliantly beautiful and fragrant flower with attractive colors met
a pearl that lives far in the bottom of the sea and has none of these characteristics.



Suddenly, a tinge of distress appeared on the flower.
"Nothing accounts for sorrow in your talk; so why are depressed?" The pearl asked.
"Human beings deal with us carelessly; they slight us. They don’t grow us for our sake but to get pleasure from our fragrance and beautiful appearance. They throw us on the street or in the garbage can after we are dispossessed of the most valuable properties; brilliance and fragrance" The flower sighed.

And then the flower said to the pearl: "Speak to me about your life! How do you live? How do you feel it? You are buried in the bottom of the sea. "

The pearl answered: "Although I have none of your distinctive colors and sweet scents, humans think I am precious. They do the impossible to procure me. They go on long journeys, dive deep in the seas searching for me. You might be astounded to know that the further I lay, the more beautiful and brilliant I become. That’s what upraises my value in their thought. I live in a thick shell isolated in the dark seas. However, I’m happy and proud to be in a safe zone far from wanton and mischievous hands and still the humans consider me highly valuable"
Do you know what the flower and the pearl symbolize?
Think Think
You will find that
..
..
..
The flower is the unveiled woman
(who shows her charms)
and the pearl is the veiled woman
(who conceals her beauties)
Think about it!
Indeed Allah is gentle
and loves gentleness,
and gives due to gentleness
that which He does not give due to harshness

- Muhammad (salAllahu alayhi wasalam)
[ibn Majah, ibn Hibban - Hasan]

Both got acquainted with each other.
The flower said: "Our family is large; roses and daisies are members of the family. And there are many other species that are various and countless, each has a distinctive scent, appearance …etc."

Journey at this world.

This world is a difficult journey
An obstacle to overcome,
Especially in the place we live in,
Not everyday is bright and fun.

The righteous salaf were as fearful of their good deeds being squandered, or not being accepted, as the present generation is certain that their neglect would be forgiven.

[Hasan Al-Basri]

Strangers…dedicated to strangers


Walking one way,
knowing where the road leads,
anticipating the end.
All that’s ahead is a bridge.
You and I have our destinations.
We know where we want to go, our minds are set.
But then the unexpected happends.
We are walking towards each other,
meaning to quietly pass by
but our eyes lock for a moment
and all is changed.
In that moment all fear is washed away.
I see in your eyes a softness, an understanding.
I look into the windows to your soul
and I see a person.
Not the same one that I see on the outside,
someone different.
In that moment that our eyes had locked
my life was forever changed.
I no longer know where I am going

What is love?…from a friend


An ode on love


"What is love?" This question often occurs to me.
Is it a feeling, an emotion, or just a tendency?


Love surely deals with the matters of the heart,
But the mind, too, plays an important part.
Love has no limit, nor has it any bound,
Those knowing love, know the soul’s profound.


Love is not just an ordinary feeling,
Once you find it, it’s vital for your being.
Love brings along joy, and also little pain,
It has a few losses but lots of gain.


Love has no causes, nor valid reasons,
Nor does it change like any of the seasons.
Love involves emotion, it needs understanding,
It is not the outcome of any preplanning.


The true meaning of love is not as simple as it’s definition,
Neither are words enough to give its explanation.
To know what is love, it needs to be felt,
That’s how I’ve known, why love is simply, the best ……………..


loving someone…


loving your parents…


loving your family…


loving yourself,


loving your religion…


love to prophets…


love…Allah…

Love or Like Someone?


In front of the person you love, you heart beat faster,
but in front of the person you like, you get happy.

In front of the person you love, winter is like spring,
but in front of the person you like, winter is just beautiful winter.

In front of the person you love, you can't say everything on your mind,
but in front of the person you like, you can.

In front of the person you love, you tend to get shy,
but in front of the person you like, you can show yourself.

In front of the person you loveIf you look into the eyes of the one you love, you blush,
but if you look into the eyes of the one you like, you smile.

You can't look straight into the eyes of the one you love,
but you can always smile into the eyes of the one you like.

When the one you love is crying, you cry with them
but when the one you like is crying, you end up comforting them.

The feeling of love starts from the eye,
but the feeling of like start from the ear.

So if you stop liking a person you used to like,
all you need to do is to cover you ears.

But if you try to close you eyes,
love turns into a drop of tear and remains in you heart forever.

Style over Substance: How cool is that?


Style over Substance: How cool is that?
by Umm Rashid
If one does a Google search on “how to be smart”, it yields 254,000,000 results in 0.34 seconds, with thousands of tips on how to exercise smart choices in every aspect of life -- from genomes to cars to clothes to kids to votes to money to FTP servers.

If one runs the same search on “how to be sincere”, the top links the search engine comes up with, are software consultants and watches that go by the brand name Sincere, and a definition of the word in Merriam Webster’s online dictionary.

It’s a clear sign of the times – the world values smart people  more than sincere ones. Well-dressed, well-heeled, well-spoken individuals score more brownie points socially, are more popular and more likely to be successful in whatever they set out to do -- regardless of what they may be like within.
People in the public eye hire image consultants to make them ‘look good’, who monitor everything about the individual’s public persona – the way they speak, the clothes they wear, the food they endorse, the places they are seen at, the causes they espouse.

Not just public personalities, even ordinary people are within the purview of image experts. Jo Anna Nicholson, author of five self-help books, including Dressing Smart for Men and Dressing Smart for Women has made a fortune out of telling others how to dress and act so that they make an “instant impression” on prospective employers and spouses. Her books include chapters on “Looking As If You Don't Have a Clue”, “How to Look Accidentally Good” and “Looking Promotable.”

Popular magazines and websites abound with pseudo-psychoanalytical articles on what one’s clothes, hair, jewellery or accessories are saying about a person, and how people can carefully tailor their appearance to create maximum impact. 

Contrast this with the attitude of the early Muslims. When the Muslims opened Jerusalem, the Christians refused to give the city's keys to anyone except the Caliph. So 'Umar ibn al-Khattaab, may Allaah be pleased with him, set off from Madeenah to Jerusalem. His entourage? One attendant and a mule, which they took turns to ride. It happened to be the attendant's turn to ride on the day they were to reach Jerusalem. The attendant volunteered to give up his turn because it would look “awkward in the eyes of the people” if he rode and the Chief of the Believers walked. ‘Umar, may Allaah be pleased with him, refused, saying: “yakfeenaa sharaful Islaam – the honour of Islaam is enough for us.” 
On the way, while walking across a muddy area, ‘Umar, may Allaah be pleased with him, took off his footwear, put it under his arm and raised his clothes so they wouldn’t get muddy. When Abu Ubaydah, may Allaah be pleased with him, who was one of the commanders waiting for him  saw this, he ran to ‘Umar asking him to ride his horse while entering the city. He said they were in a land where the quality of clothes reflected the rank of people.
‘Umar, may Allaah be pleased with him, replied: “I wish someone other than you had said that. Have you forgotten that we were a lowly people and it was Islaam that made us honourable? If we seek honour from anything other than Islaam, Allaah will return us to that state of lowliness.”

For proof regarding the fulfillment of this prophecy, one only has to look around: Muslims are being humiliated, subjugated and oppressed by the very system and people whose ways they seek to emulate, in preference to the Sunnah of their Prophet, sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam, and the example of those whom Allaah was pleased with.

It’s true, cultivating “coolness” has more immediate pay-offs than cultivating sincerity. Wearing the latest brands and hanging out at the most-happening places is the ticket to gaining entry into the ‘with-it’ crowd – the people with the wittiest repartees, trendiest hairstyles and clothes, fanciest cars and gizmos --  who spend a considerable amount of time and energy trying to stay abreast of the latest trends. As opposed to this ‘magic circle’, seen from the outside, the company of sincere people seems unglamorous, even boring.

But scratch deeper, and the truth surfaces.

People who try to fit in with a superficial world that subscribes to ever-changing fads, soon discover that the hollowness of their world finds an echo deep within. A deep-seated dissatisfaction with oneself takes a person to stylists and therapists, but make-up and makeovers can’t change one’s personality. They merely reinforce the belief that a person is incapable of being appreciated for themselves, they must use other people’s advice instead of their own judgment to be successful, they must adopt someone else’s idea of beauty to be acceptable in the eyes of others.

How cool is that?

On the other hand, people who set out on the straight and narrow, choosing substance over style, seeking to please Allaah as opposed to pleasing people, may not find their popularity ratings soar -- quite the opposite, in fact. Yet, they get strength in the certainty of their belief, that their reward is with Allaah in the Hereafter.

What are the signs that a person is seeking to build an ‘image’ instead of developing true faith by their deeds?

In his book, Riyaa: The Hidden Shirk, Abu Ammaar Yasir Qadhi writes: “Linguistically riyaa comes from the root “ra’aa” which means to see, to behold, to view. The derived word 'riyaa' means "eye-service, hypocrisy, dissimulation; dissemblance." From a sharee`ah point of view, it means “to perform acts which are pleasing to Allaah, with the intention of pleasing other than Allaah.”

The primary cause of riyaa is a weakness in faith (eemaan). When a person does not have strong faith in Allaah, he will prefer the admiration of people over the pleasure of Allaah.”

There are three symptoms that are indicative of riyaa, and it is essential that a believer avoid all of them.
•The love of praise : A hadeeth mentions the first three people being thrown into hellfire -- the scholar (who taught for fame), the martyr (who fought for fame), and the person who gave his money in charity (so people would say he is generous). All three of these people desired the pleasure of people over the pleasure of Allah. The person who desires the praise of people must feel some pride in himself, for he feels himself worthy of being praised. There is a danger, therefore, of him becoming arrogant and boastful.
•Fear of criticism: No one likes to be criticised.
The dislike of criticism regarding religious practices may be divided into two categories:
The first category is that of a person who neglects a commandment of Allaah in order to avoid the criticism of his peers. However, the true believers are described in the Qur’aan as follows: "...They do not fear the criticism of those who criticise. And this is the blessing of Allah; He gives it to whomsoever He wishes. Verily, Allaah is Self-Sufficient, all Knowing. " [Al-Maa`idah : 54]
The second category is that of a person who obeys certain commandments of Islaam, not for the sake of Allaah, but because he fears people will look down upon him and criticise him if he does not do it. For example, a man may make his formal prayers in the mosque because he does not want people to criticise him for praying at home, or to think that he is not praying at all.
•Greed for people’s possessions
If a person covets what other people possess -- whether it is rank, money or power, then he will wish them to envy him similarly. For example, if he is jealous of a certain person’s position in society, he will try by every possible means to attain the same position. Such desires lead people to spend their lives putting on a show for other people so that they will admire their rank, money, or power.”

How does one go about seeking sincerity?

Imaam Ibn-al Qayyim al Jawziyyah, may Allaah have mercy on him, says: “If your soul informs you to quest for Ikhlaas, turn first towards your yearning and slaughter it with a knife [in a state] of desperation. Then turn [in a state of] asceticism upon praise and commendation… If your quest in slaughtering the yearning, and [the acquisition of] asceticism [against] praise and commendation is successful, your [journey] shall be facilitated in your [quest] for Ikhlaas.”

Tameem ad-Daaree, may Allaah be pleased with him, said: the Prophet sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam, said thrice (to lay stress): The Deen is naseehah (sincerity and sincere advice)." We said: To whom? He said: "To Allaah, His Book, His Messenger and to the leaders of the Muslims and the general people." [ Saheeh Muslim]

Imaam an-Nawawee, may Allaah have mercy on him, has a lengthy commentary on this hadeeth in Sharh Saheeh Muslim, in which he says: 
“Sincerity to Allaah means having faith in Him… avoiding disobedience to Him, to love for His sake and to hate for His sake, to keep good relations with those that obey Him and to have enmity with those that disobey Him. To fight jihaad with those who disbelieve in Him. To recognise His favours and to give thanks to Him for them. To have sincerity in all affairs. To call to everything that we have mentioned, and to encourage it. To show kindness to all the people, all those whom you are able to, in this call.”

“..sincerity to the general Muslims … is to guide them to what is beneficial for them, both in the Hereafter and this life. To keep harm away from them, to teach them that which they are ignorant of regarding the Deen... to help them by words and actions, to hide their faults and to fulfill their needs and wants; to remove that which is harmful for them and to bring that which is of benefit to them; enjoin them with good and forbid them from evil, with gentleness, sincerity and compassion for them.
Having respect for their elderly and mercy for their young. To give them good admonition, not acting deceitfully towards them. To love the good things for them, which he would love for himself. To hate the bad things for them, which he would hate for himself. To protect their wealth and reputation and encourage and advise them to take on the character of all that we have mentioned, form all the types of sincerity...”

If you skipped the last three paragraphs, I urge you to scroll up and read them slowly and carefully – they contain the prescription to our problems as an Ummah. 

As Muslims, our main concern is not to score points over each other -- it is to help each other gain Allaah’s pleasure.

As Muslims, our job in this world is to establish the Truth -- how can we presume to do that when we fail to be honest in our innermost motives?

As Muslims, our supplication is: Allaahummaa ij'al baatinanaa khayran min dhaahirina; wa-ija'al dhaahiranaa khayran [O Allaah! Make the hidden aspects of our personality better than our outer persona; and make our appearance good] -- how can we assume vicegerency over the Earth when we fail to be sincere slaves to our Lord; when we are concerned with outward appearances more than the state of our soul?
