Melawan Sifat Negatif.


Ini sebuah ucapan yang patut kita resapi, chan.

In Hilyat Al-Awliya (10/287), it’s related that Al-Junayd said: “A person is not to be blamed for his nature. Rather, he is to be blamed if he acts according to his nature.”
This is a very deep statement. A person should not bring his status as an imperfect human being to serve as an excuse for manifesting blameworthy characteristics and actions. Yes, we were fashioned with varying degrees of negative attributes within us, such as envy, greed, lack of gratitude, arrogance, the desire to commit certain sins, etc.
However, we were also fashioned with the ability to repel, change, and strive against the inclinations to openly manifest them.
It is possible to abandon negative traits you find in yourself and change your character for the better. You just have to know what you want to become, and want it badly enough to put up a fight whenever the negative traits that get in the way begin to surface.

Diambil dari Saudi Gazette.

Saya percaya bahwa terhadap sifat-sifat buruk dalam diri kita, kita harus berdamai dengannya, memaafkan lalu kemudian menerimanya. Tapi saya pikir, akan lebih baik jika kita terus mencoba melawan sifat-sifat itu jika dirasa merugi, untuk berubah. Hidup ini pilihan, kawan. Daripada hanya menerima, ambillah langkah untuk berubah. Kita bisa memilih untuk mulai berbuat baik daripada mengikuti hawa nafsu dan emosi sesaat, lalu kemudian berbuat buruk.

Naudzubilla min dzalik.
