Kalau Allah itu Maha Baik, Kenapa buat neraka?

Ini kisah benar.. Kisah seorang gadis Melayu, beragama Islam, tapi cetek pengetahuan tentang agama. 

Ceritanya begini, di sebuah negeri yang melaksanakan dasar ‘Membangun Bersama Islam’, kerap kali pihak berkuasa tempatan menjalankan pemeriksaan mengejut di premis-premis perniagaan dan kompleks beli-belah, untuk memastikan para pekerja di premis berkenaan menutup aurat.

Saya tidak pasti berapa jumlah denda yang dikenakan sekiranya didapati melakukan kesalahan, tapi selalunya mereka akan diberi amaran bagi kesalahan pertama, dan didenda jika didapati masih enggan mematuhi garis panduan yang ditetapkan.

Lazimnya dalam setiap operasi sebegini, seorang ustaz ditugaskan bersama dengan para pegawai pihak berkuasa tempatan.

Tugasnya adalah untuk menyampaikan nasihat secara berhemah, kerana hukuman dan denda semata-mata tidak mampu memberi kesan yang mendalam.

Dalam satu insiden, ketika operasi yang dijalankan sekitar 2005, seorang gadis yang bekerja di salah satu lot premis perniagaan di  sebuah pasaraya  telah didapati melakukan kesalahan tidak menutup aurat.

Maka dia pun kena denda.

Setelah surat saman dihulurkan oleh pegawai PBT, ustaz ni pun bagi la nasihat, “lepas ini diharap saudari insaf dan dapat mematuhi peraturan.

Peraturan ni bukan semata-mata peraturan Majlis perbandaran, tapi menutup aurat ni termasuk perintah Allah. Ringkasnya, kalau taat segala perintahNya, pasti Dia akan membalas dengan nikmat di syurga.

Kalau derhaka tidak mematuhi perintahNya, takut nanti tidak sempat bertaubat, bakal mendapat azab di neraka Allah.

Tuhan Maha Penyayang, Dia sendiri tidak mahu kita campakkan diri ke dalam neraka.”

Gadis tersebut yang dari awal mendiamkan diri, tiba-tiba membentak “Kalau Tuhan tu betul-betul baik, kenapa buat neraka?

Kenapa tidak sediakan syurga sahaja? Macam itu ke Tuhan Maha Penyayang?” Mungkin dari tadi dia sudah panas telinga, tak tahan dengar nasihat ustaz. Sudah  la hati panas kena denda sebab dia tak pakai tudung.

Ustaz tu terkedu sekejap. Bahaya budak ni. Kalau dibiarkan boleh rosak akidah dia.

Setelah habis gadis tu membebel, ustaz tu pun jawab: “Dik, kalau Tuhan tak buat neraka, saya tak jadi ustaz.

Berapa sen sangat gaji saya sekarang. Baik saya jadi tokey judi, atau bapa ayam.

Hidup senang, lepas mati pun tak risau sebab gerenti masuk syurga.

Mungkin awak ni pun saya boleh culik dan jual jadi pelacur.

Kalau awak nak lari, saya bunuh je. Takpe, sebab neraka tak ada. Nanti kita berdua jumpa lagi kat syurga. Kan Tuhan tu baik?”

Gadis tu terkejut. Tergamak seorang ustaz cakap macam tu? Sedang dia terpinga-pinga dengan muka confused, ustaz tu pun jelaskan:

“Perkara macam tadi akan berlaku kalau Tuhan hanya sediakan syurga. Orang baik, orang jahat, semua masuk syurga.

Maka apa guna jadi orang baik? Jadi orang jahat lebih seronok. Manusia tak perlu lagi diuji sebab semua orang akan ‘lulus’ percuma.

Pembunuh akan jumpa orang yang dibunuh dalam syurga. Perogol akan bertemu lagi dengan mangsa rogol di syurga.

Selepas tu boleh rogol lagi kalau dia nak. Tak ada siapa yang terima hukuman. Sebab Tuhan itu ‘baik’.

Adakah Tuhan macam ni yang kita nak? Awak rasa, adil ke?” Tanya ustaz.

“Mana adil macam tu. Orang jahat takkan la terlepas macam tu je.” Rungut si gadis.

Ustaz tersenyum dan menyoal lagi: “Bila tuhan tak adil, boleh ke dianggap baik?”

Gadis tu terdiam.

Ustaz mengakhiri kata-katanya:

“Adik, saya bagi nasihat ni kerana kasih sesama umat Islam. Allah itu Maha Penyayang, tapi Dia juga Maha Adil.

Sebab tu neraka perlu wujud. Untuk menghukum hamba-hambaNya yang derhaka, yang menzalimi diri sendiri dan juga orang lain.

Saya rasa awak dah faham sekarang. Kita sedang diuji di atas dunia ni.

Jasad kita bahkan segala-galanya milik Allah, maka bukan hak kita untuk berpakaian sesuka hati kita.

Ingatlah, semuanya dipinjamkan olehNya, sebagai amanah dan ujian.

Semoga kita dapat bersabar dalam mentaati segala perintahNya, untuk kebaikan diri kita juga.”

A dialogue between Palestine, Egypt and Israel

Palestine : Why did you do this to us?
Egypt : Did what?

Palestine : Stop pretending. You know what I mean.

Egypt : No, I don’t!

Palestine : Fine, let me tell you silly, about the tunnel, why did you block the tunnel?

Egypt : Owh, about that. Sorry, I strongly think that’s my territory, so I have the right to do whatever I want. Furthermore, I just want to stop you from smuggling.

Palestine : Yes I know that’s your territory. But you knew how Israel blocked our supplies for foods, oils and all necessities from coming in, and if not because of the tunnel, we are already died in hunger. Now you want to block the tunnel. How could you do this to us? We are brothers! Please don’t forget that this world is not belong to us, its belong to Allah The Almighty! And He just lend it to us!

Egypt : errr… (feel guilty)…

Then come Israel.

Israel : What’s the problem here?

Palestine : Go away! It’s none of your business!

Israel : It’s my business because you are bullying my friend here! O my friend Egypt, tell me, what’s the problem?

Egypt : emm… (looked down then speak slowly)… Palestine is mad at me because I blocked the tunnel.

Israel : Owh about that. Then why did you afraid? You don’t have to be afraid, I’m here. I will protect you and will always protect you Egypt.

Egypt : (silence, felt ashamed)

Palestine : Egypt, please, we are Muslim, I know you are under pressure from Israel, and I know that you know who’s the real bully here. It’s not me, it’s Israel!

Israel : Hey watch your mouth Palestine, don’t try me!

Palestine : What?! What are you going to do Israel?! What else that could be more worse than what you had done to us on the ‘Nakba’! On 15 May 1948! Don’t you ever dare to forget that date Israel! You came to our land, you established the living of Jews, Zionist acted cruelly and dispelled more than 800 000 Palestinian from our very own country! Not enough with that, you destroyed 478 villages among 580!

Egypt’s face dropped down. He felt so ashamed, guilty, regretted. When Israel saw that, he panicked. His face became red as he was mad. Then immediately he punched Palestine face and Palestine fall to the ground.

Israel : See, I warned u!

Palestine : Why! That’s all that you can do! Do you really think by punching me at my face will make me scared! Not a chance Israel! Not a chance! Like I said Israel, you had done worse to us. Don’t you forget it Israel! And if you pretend to forget it, let me remind you Israel.

(Israel became more panicked. He didn’t know what else that might come from Palestine’s mouth, and he afraid it will affect his relation with Egypt. )

While Palestine got back to his feet and shed the blood on his lips from the punch by Israel, he continued.



Palestine : Do you remember 9 April 1948 Israel? The chaos that you had done at Deir Yassin. DO U REMEMBER?! You came to Deir Yassin with your army and without sympathy you started to burn the village! You burned down our house Israel! Not enough with that, while the house was burning, you waited outside of the house, and when people running out of the house to save themselves from the fire, you shot them at the head! At their head Israel! Without any sympathy! You shot women, old people and kids! The people that you shot without any sympathy. My parents, my children, my wife, my brothers, my sisters, they all were my family Israel!

(At this moment, tears started to run down on the cheek of Palestine, he could not bear it anymore, he felt so sad remembering what Zionist had done to Palestinian.)

Palestine : Why you did that Israel? Why you have to act so cruel Israel? Why you have to shoot the kids while they were trying to save themselves from the burning house? They were scared Israel. They just wanted to save themselves. But you killed them all. What have they (kids) done to you that made you shot them at their head? They did nothing wrong Israel. They were just children. Where’s your humanity Israel? (…Palestine sobbing…)

Egypt started to cry.

Israel panicked that suddenly he shout at Palestine.

Israel : Hey shut your mouth Palestine! That’s enough!

Without care of Israel, Palestine continue in sobbing.

Palestine : My brother Egypt, please, look me in my eyes and tell me that I was wrong. They (while pointing his finger at Israel) are an animal, worse than animal! Have you forget that hundreds of heavily-armed Jews massacred a little village near Baitul-Maqdis (Jerusalem) of 200 Arabs. They raped the women and children, then crushed their heads with rocks until the brain blew out.

(Egypt fall to his knees, he could not barely stand anymore, he felt so weak.)

Israel was surprised. He then hit Palestine face again. This time harder. Palestine fall to the ground. Without waiting, Israel then kick Palestine face, again and again. Israel acted like crazy man who was losing his mind. Palestine was groaning in pain.

Egypt : STOP IT ISRAEL! Please stop! (crying and pleading Israel to stop, he could not bear looking Palestine was hit like that)

But Israel will never stop. He hated Palestine so much. He keep on kicking Palestine. Egypt then felt something wrong when he saw Israel picked up a big stone near him.

Egypt : NO, NO ISRAEL,,,PLEASE DON’T… PLEASE,,,NOO,,!!!

It was too late, Israel hit Palestine face as hard as he could with the stone. Blood burst out all over his face. Israel then became panicked and fled from the scene.

……….(Silence for a moment)……….

Egypt was surprised by the scene that he just saw. Egypt then immediately run to Palestine and hold Palestine head. His face was covered with blood. He was still breathing, but so weak. Palestine was dying.

Egypt (while crying) : Palestine, wake up Palestine, please my dear brother, wake up, please don’t die. Don’t leave me.

With few strength left, Palestine softly spoke to Egypt’s ear…

” Don’t cry my brother. Don’t cry, be strong. Israel can kill me, but he will never kill my spirit. He can kill my whole country, but he can never kill the passion of Muslim around the world. By God wills, Islam will rise someday. But before that, we need to unite my brother. You, me and all our brothers of Islam around the world should unite as one. We should stop fighting among us. We should stop depending on Israel and America. We Muslim, should embrace as one, and love each other as a family for the sake of our beloved religion, Islam. And when that time come, Islam will rise as high as ever. Trust in ourselves that we can and we will win. Remember, Allah will always be on our side. We can bring the change to the world. Islam will rule the world someday. InsyaAllah.

Egypt : I will my brother, InsyaAllah, I will remember all your words.

Open Your Eyes

Look around yourselves
Can’t you see this wonder
Spreaded infront of you
The clouds floating by
The skies are clear and blue
Planets in the orbits
The moon and the sun
Such perfect harmony
Let’s start question in ourselves
Isn’t this proof enough for us
Or are we so blind
To push it all aside..
No..
We just have to
Open our eyes, our hearts, and minds
If we just look bright to see the signs
We can’t keep hiding from the truth
Let it take us by surprise
Take us in the best way
(Allah..)
Guide us every single day..
(Allah..)
Keep us close to You
Until the end of time..
Look inside yourselves
Such a perfect order
Hiding in yourselves
Running in your veins
What about anger love and pain
And all the things you’re feeling
Can you touch them with your hand?
So are they really there?
Lets start question in ourselves
Isn’t this proof enough for us?
Or are we so blind
To push it all aside..?
No..
We just have to
Open our eyes, our hearts, and minds
If we just look bright to see the signs
We can’t keep hiding from the truth
Let it take us by surprise
Take us in the best way
(Allah..)
Guide us every single day..
(Allah..)
Keep us close to You
Until the end of time..
When a baby’s born
So helpless and weak
And you’re watching him growing..
So why deny
Whats in front of your eyes
The biggest miracle of life..
We just have to
Open our eyes, our hearts, and minds
If we just look quiet we’ll see the signs
We can’t keep hiding from the truth
Let it take us by surprise
Take us in the best way
(Allah..)
Guide us every single day..
(Allah..)
Keep us close to You
Until the end of time..
Open your eyes and hearts and minds
If you just look bright to see the signs
We can’t keep hiding from the truth
Let it take us by surprise
Take us in the best way
(Allah..)
Guide us every single day..
(Allah..)
Keep us close to You
Until the end of time..
Allah..
You created everything
We belong to You
Ya Robb we raise our hands
Forever we thank You..
Alhamdulillah..
