Music And Islam

All praise and thanks are due to Allah, and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger.
First of all, we would like to thank you for the great confidence you have in us. We hope our efforts meet your expectations. Given that your objection revolves mainly around music and why it is permissible, here is the clarification for that in the light of fatwa issued by Sheikh Yusuf Al-Qaradawi : The whole issue of singing is controversial, whether it is with musical accompaniment or not. Some issues succeeded to gain the Muslim scholars' agreement, while others failed. All scholars have unanimous view on the prohibition of all forms of singing and music that incites debauchery, indecency, or sin. As for musical instruments, given the weakness of the evidence indicating that they are forbidden, the rule to be applied here is the one states that all things are originally deemed permissible as long as there is no Shari`ah text that prohibits them. Singing is no more than melodious words; if these are good, singing is considered good; but if they are bad, such singing is deemed bad. Talk that contains forbidden content is prohibited. What if that talk is accompanied with rhythm and melody? Scholars agree on the permissibility of singing without instrumental accompaniment and where the content is not prohibited. This sort of singing is allowed only in certain occasions such as: weddings, feasts, welcoming a traveler, and the like. This is based on the hadith of the Prophet (peace and blessing be upon him) that states: “He (peace and blessings be upon him) asked, ‘Have you given the girl (i.e., the bride) anything as a present?' They (the attendants) replied, ‘Yes.' He asked, 'Did you send a singer along with her?' 'No', said `A'ishah. The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) then said, 'The Ansar are a people who love poetry. You should have sent along someone who would sing: Here we come, to you we come, greet us as we greet you.'" In this case, we can say that a woman can sing only in front of women and her non-marriageable male kin. In the subject of musical instruments, scholars disagree on the matter. Some of them permit all sorts of singing, be it accompanied with musical instruments or not, and even consider it recommended. A second group of scholars permit singing only when is not accompanied with a musical instrument. A third group declare it to be prohibited whether it be accompanied with a musical instrument or not; they even consider it as a major sin. In supporting their view, they cite the hadith narrated by Imam Al-Bukhari on the authority of Abu Malik or Abu `Amir Al-Ash`ari (doubt from the sub-narrator) that the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said, 'From among my followers there will be some people who will consider illegal sexual intercourse, the wearing of silk (clothes), the drinking of alcoholic drinks and the use of musical instruments, as lawful.' Although this hadith is in Sahih Al-Bukhari, its chain of transmission is not connected to Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) and this invalidates its authenticity. Ibn Hazm rejects it for that very reason. Moreover, the sub-narrator, Hisham Ibn `Ammar is declared ‘weak' by many scholars of the Science of Hadith Methodology. Besides, this hadith does not clearly prohibit the use of musical instruments, for the phrase 'consider as lawful,' according to Ibn Al-`Arabi, has two distinct meanings: First : Such people think all these (the things mentioned) are lawful. Second : They exceed the proper limits that should be observed in using these instruments. If the first meaning is intended, such people would be thus disbelievers. In fact, the hadith in hand dispraises the manners of a group of people who indulge themselves in luxuries, drinking alcohol and listening to music. Therefore, Ibn Majah narrates this hadith from Abu Malik Al-Ash`ari in the following wording: "From among my followers there will be some people who will drink wine, giving it other names while they listen to musical instruments and the singing of female singers; Allah the Almighty will make the earth swallow them and will turn them into monkeys and pigs.” (Reported by Ibn Hibban in his Sahih ) Conclusion on Permissibility of Musical Instruments In the light of the above, it is clear that the religious texts that stand as a basis for those who maintain that singing is haram are either ambiguous or inauthentic. None of the hadiths attributed to Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) is valid as evidence on the judgment of prohibition. Moreover, all these hadiths are declared ‘weak' by the followers of Ibn Hazm, Malik, Ibn Hanbal, and Ash-Shafi`i. In his book, Al-Ahkam , Al-Qadi Abu Bakr Ibn Al-`Arabi says, “None of the hadiths maintaining that singing is prohibited are considered authentic (by the scholars of the Science of Hadith Methodology).” The same view is maintained by Al-Ghazali and Ibn An-Nahwi in Al-`Umdah . Ibn Tahir says, “Not even a single letter from all these Hadiths was proved to be authentic.” Ibn Hazm says, “All the hadiths narrated in this respect were invented and falsified.” Proofs of Those Who Maintain that Singing is Halal : First : The Textual Proofs: They base their argument on some authentic hadiths of Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him). One of these hadiths is the following: `A'ishah (may Allah be pleased with her) narrated: “Allah's Messenger (peace and blessings be upon him, came to my house while two girls were singing beside me the songs of Bu`ath (a story about the pre-Islamic war between the two tribes of the Ansar, the Khazraj and the Awus). The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) laid down and turned his face to the other side. Then Abu Bakr came and spoke to me harshly saying, ‘Musical instruments of Satan near the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him)?' Thereupon, Allah's Messenger (peace and blessings be upon him) turned his face towards him and said, ‘Leave them.' When Abu Bakr became inattentive, I signaled to those girls to go out and they left.” (Reported by Al-Bukhari) This indicates that these two girls were not so young as claimed by some scholars. If they were, Abu Bakr would not have been angry with them in such manner. In addition, in this hadith, the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) wanted to teach the Jews that Islam has room for merriment and that he himself was sent with a moderate and flexible legislation. There is also another important lesson to learn here. It draws our attention to the fact that one needs to introduce Islam to others in a good fashion, along with displaying its moderateness and magnanimity. Moreover, we can also cite as corroborating this Allah's words that read, “But when they spy some merchandise or pastime they break away to it and leave thee standing. Say: That which Allah hath is better than pastime and than merchandise, and Allah is the best of providers.” (Al-Jumu`ah: 11) In this verse, Allah Almighty joins pastime with merchandise. He does not dispraise any of them, He just only rebuked the Companions who left Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) alone giving the khutbah (Friday Sermon), when they all rushed to attend to the caravan and beating of the drums celebrating its arrival. Second : In Respect of Islam's Spirit and Basics: It is a fact that Allah had prohibited for the Children of Israel some of the good things of this worldly life as a punishment for their misdeeds. He says, “Because of the wrongdoing of the Jews, We forbade them good things which were (before) made lawful unto them, and because of their much hindering from Allah's way. And of their taking usury when they were forbidden it, and of their devouring people's wealth by false pretences. We have prepared for those of them who disbelieve a painful doom.” (An-Nisa': 160-161) Before sending Prophet Muhammad, He Almighty referred to him in the earlier scriptures as, “Those who follow the Messenger, the Prophet who can neither read nor write, whom they will find described in the Torah and the Gospel (which are) with them. He will enjoin on them that which is right and forbid them that which is wrong. He will make lawful for them all good things and prohibit for them only the foul.” (Al-A`raf: 157) Thus, Islam left nothing good or sound but declared it to be halal (lawful). This is a sign of mercy to this Ummah (nation or community), moving along the line of its comprehensive and eternal message. Allah Almighty says, “They ask you (O Muhammad) what is made lawful for them. Say: (all) good things are made lawful for you.” (Al-Ma'idah: 4) If we are to delve deeply into this matter, we will find that love for singing and melodic voices are almost a human instinct. We can observe an infant lying in his cradle soothed and sleeping by the sound of a lullaby. Mothers and nannies are always in the habit of singing for babies and children. Moreover, birds and animals respond to nice voices and rhythmic melodies.
Thereupon, if singing is thus a human instinct, it is not for Islam to defy humankind's instincts. Islam came to refine and promote the human instinct. Ibn Taymyiah says, “Prophets were sent to polish and discipline man's instinct and not to change or modify it.” This is pursuant to the hadith that reads, “When Allah's Messenger came to Madinah, he found them (i.e., the people of Madinah) celebrating two days. He said, ‘What are these days?' They replied, ‘We used to rejoice in these days during the pre-Islamic era.' He (peace and blessings be upon him) said, ‘Verily, Allah Almighty has given you two alternative days which are much better: these are Al-Adha and Al-Fitr days (`Eids).' ” (Reported by Ahmad, Abu Dawud and An-Nasa'i) Moreover, if singing is to be considered rejoicing and play, these are not haram ; this is in pursuant to the famous idea that man needs some time to relax a bit and rejoice. The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said to Hanzalah who thought himself to be a hypocrite for his attendance to his wife and children and the change that affected him when he was apart from Allah's Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him), “O Hanzalah! Part of your time should be devoted (to the worldly affairs) and part of time (should be devoted to prayer and meditation).” (Reported by Muslim) `Ali Ibn Abu Talib says, “Amuse yourselves for some time, for if hearts are exposed to too much strain, they turn blind.” Abu Ad-Darda' said, “I refresh myself with some amusement in order to make myself stronger on the path of right.” Imam Al-Ghazali answered someone who asked him: “Isn't singing some kind of play and rejoice?” He said, “Yes. But, all that exists in this present life is mere play and rejoice. All that takes place between a husband and his wife is play, except sexual intercourse that is the direct cause of reproducing children. This has been reported from Allah's Messenger and his honorable Companions.” In fact, leisure time is refreshing to the heart and alleviates its tensions at the same time. Excessive strain and efforts render the heart bored and blind. Amusing the self refreshes and renews its strength and vigor. One who continuously works hard at something should take a break for a while in order to restore and regain his energy and firm will lest he totally collapses in future. When one takes a break, he thus restores his strength and vigor. Only Prophets can stand absolute seriousness. Having leisure time is a form of treatment for diseases of the self, weariness and boredom. But, leisure should not be excessive. This will go against the whole issue of rejoicing hearts to make them able to go on. One who is familiar with and experienced in the nature of the human heart and self knows for certain that recreation and relaxation are necessary treatments for one's well-being. These proofs on the permissibility of singing are extracted from the texts and rules of Islam, and these are sufficient to clarify the issue. In addition to this, the people of Madinah, who were very pious and God-fearing, the Zahiriyyah, who were very literal regarding the textual proofs, and the Sufis, who were very strict and rigid, were all quoted to have declared the permissibility of singing. Imam Ash-Shawkani says in his book “ Nayl Al-Awtar ”, “The people of Madinah and those who agreed with them from among the Zahiriyyah and the Sufis maintain that singing is permissible, even when it is accompanied by a musical instrument such as the lute or the flute. Abu Mansur Al-Bughdadi Ash-Shafi`i narrate that `Abdullah Ibn Ja`far saw nothing wrong in singing, and he, himself, used to compose the music for his own slaves who used to sing these melodies in his presence. This took place during the time of Commander of the Faithful, `Ali Ibn Abi Talib. Abu Ja`far Al-Bughdadi narrates the same after Al-Qadi Shurayh, Sa`id Ibn Al-Musaiyb, `Ata' Ibn Abu Rabah, Az-Zuhri and Ash-Shi`bi.” Ar-Ruwaiyani narrates on the authority of Al-Qaffal that Malik Ibn Anas maintained that singing with musical instruments is permissible. Also, Abu Mansur Al-Furani quotes Malik as maintaining that playing the flute is permissible. Abu Al-Fadl Ibn Tahir narrates, “The people of Madinah never disputed over the permissibility of playing the lute.” Ibn An-Nahwi narrates in his “ Al-`Umdah ”: “Ibn Tahir said, ‘The people of Madinah showed consensus over this (issue). Also, all the Zahiriyyah maintained the same.'” Al-Mawardi attributes the permissibility of playing the lute to some of the Shafi`i followers and students. This has been narrated also by Abu Al-Fadl Ibn Tahir after Abu Ishaq Ash-Shirazi; and it is narrated by Al-Isnawi after Ar-Ruwaiyani and Al-Mawardi. Again, this is narrated by Al-Adfuwi after Sheikh `Izz Ad-Deen Ibn `Abd As-Salam. It is also narrated after Abu Bakr Ibn Al-`Arabi. All these scholars consider singing that is accompanied by musical instruments permissible, but as for singing that is not accompanied by musical instruments, Al-Adfuwi says, “In some of his jurisprudence-related books, Al-Ghazali narrates the consensus of the scholars on its permissibility." Also, Ibn Tahir narrates the consensus of the Prophet's Companions and those who succeeded them on this very topic. Ibn An-Nahwi states in Al-`Umdah that singing and listening was deemed permissible by a group of the Companions and the Followers. Conditions and Terms: There are some conditions and terms that should be observed regarding listening to singing, as follows: 1. Not all sorts of singing are permissible. Rather, the permissible song should comply with the Islamic teachings and ethics. Therefore, the songs praising the tyrants and corrupt rulers disagree with Islamic teachings. In fact, Islam stands against transgressors and their allies, and those who show indifference to their transgression. So, the same goes for those songs that imply giving praises to such attitude! 2. Also, the way the song is performed weighs so much. The theme of the song may be good, but the performance of the singer – through intending excitement and arousing others' lusts and desires along with trying to seduce them – may move it to the area of prohibition, suspicion or even detest. The Glorious Qur'an addresses the wives of Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) saying, “O you wives of the Prophet! You are not like any other women. If you keep your duty (to Allah), then be not soft of speech, lest he in whose heart is a disease aspire (to you), but utter customary speech." (Al-Ahzab: 32) So, one has to show caution to music when there is softness of speech accompanied with rhyme, melody, and special effects! 3. Singing should not be accompanied with something that is prohibited such as alcohol, nakedness, mixing of men with women that is common in pubs and nightclubs, etc. 4. Islam has declared excessiveness as prohibited in everything. The same goes for excessiveness in leisure and recreation even though these things are permissible ! This indicates that the emptiness of the mind and heart has to be observed and tackled during man's short-term life. One should know that Allah Almighty will ask every one about his life and his youth in particular. There are some things in which one is to be his own judge and Mufti. If there is some kind of singing that arouses his own lust or desire, and takes him away from the real life, he should avoid it then and block that very gate from which the winds of trial and seduction may come and erase his religion, morals and heart. If he does this, he will live in peace and tranquility. Warning against playing with the word “ haram ” To conclude, we address the respectful scholars who tackle the word “ haram ” easily and set it free in their writings and fatwas that they should observe that Allah is watching over them in all that they say or do. They should also know that this word “ haram ” is very dangerous. It means that Allah's Punishment is due on a certain act or saying, and should not be based upon guessing, whims, weak Hadiths, not even through an old book. It has to be supported by a clear, well-established text or valid consensus. If these last two are not found, then we revert the given act or saying to the original rule: "permissibility governing things". We do have a good example to follow from one of our earlier pious scholars. Imam Malik (may Allah be pleased with him) who said: “It was not the habit of those who preceded us, the early pious Muslims, who set good example for the following generations, to say, 'This is halal , and this is haram . But, they would say, ‘I hate such-and-such, and maintain such-and-such, but as for halal and haram , this is what may be called inventing lies concerning Allah. Did not you hear Allah's Statement that reads, 'Say: Have you considered what provision Allah has sent down for you, how you have made of it lawful and unlawful? Say: Has Allah permitted you, or do you invent a lie concerning Allah?” (Yunus: 59) For, the halal is what Allah and His Messenger made lawful, and the haram is what Allah and His Messenger made unlawful.

Trully Fruity

Fruit is a great way to start eating more nutrition and eating at least five to nine servings can make a big difference in the way you feel. Some fruits are more nutritionally valuable than others. We will discuss some of the most nutritious fruits and why they are so good for you.
A is for Apple
We have all heard the expression, "an apple a day keeps the doctor away". This might not be entirely true, but eating apples is a great way for you to get the fiber you need in your diet. They are delicious and readily available all year around. Apples also contain pectin and that aids in lowering the bad cholesterol. They are also known to contain flavenoids that are beneficial to fighting cancer. It is better to eat a fresh apple rather than drink apple juice. The reason behind this is that some of the nutrients and important minerals may be lost during the processing.
A is also for Apricots
Apricots are chock full of zinc, folic acid, vitamins A and K, calcium and protein. They are also very high in beta carotene, fiber and potassium. Apricots are often found on the top ten lists for fruits and you can purchase them fresh, canned or dried. Eating dried apricots will give you an excellent source of essential nutrients. If you are going to purchase dried apricots, it is good to read the label. You will want to avoid those dried apricots that are laden with chemicals and preservatives. The best place to purchase dried apricots or any other dried fruit is from a health food store or a natural market. You will find a large selection of tasty treats that contain no additives; just the valuable nutrients you need in order for your body to perform in peak condition.
An Avocado is a Fruit Too
Many people mistakenly think of avocados as a vegetable when in reality they are a fruit. An avocado is considered a "super fruit" and is loaded with zinc, riboflavin, thiamin and niacin to name just a few of the important nutrients that an avocado has. Avocados are great for growing kids. Those who are conscious of their weight may want to forgo avocados because of their high calorie content. They also have a high fat count, but it is the heart healthy monounsaturated fats such as the Omega 3 fatty acid, an important brain food. Avocados can be eaten fresh after they have been peeled, or can be made into guacamole by adding garlic, onions and tomatoes.
Start Monkeying Around
Bananas are high in potassium and can aid in those people who take such medications as diuretics which are known to deplete the potassium from your body. They are easily mashed for easy consumption for babies and toddlers and because you have to peel one before you eat it, they will not contain pesticides that many other fruits are vulnerable to. A banana is a handy snack for eating on the go and keeping a supply of them in your home will make snack time a snap.
For many years, blueberries have been thought of as a tasty summertime treat. We now know that blueberries can pack a lot of punch because of the anthocyanin, a cancer fighting antioxidant that can be found in the skin. They are a tasty addition to any health conscious person's diet and can make many other foods even tastier with their addition. You can add blueberries to a salad, cereal or ice cream or use them to make your fruit smoothie even more delicious. Adding blueberries to your diet whether fresh or frozen is a great nutritional step for you to take.Cantaloupe Tonight, My Father is Using the LadderCantaloupes are not only juicy and delicious; they are high in potassium, vitamin C and beta carotene. Melon that is fresh can be enjoyed in a variety of ways and is nutrition that is tasty as well as good for you. There are other varieties of melon, but cantaloupe is a melon that you can trust to give you the healthy nutrients you need.GrapefruitEating grapefruit has long been a staple of dieters. It is a fruit that is high in fiber yet low in calories. The best grapefruit for you are the red or pink type. So if you have a choice, opt for these instead of the white variety. There is a lot of fiber packed into the strings that attach the grapefruit segments, so do yourself a favor and don't ever to use a spoon to scoop out the tasty flesh.

Nasehat Rasulullah Muhammad SAW

Dari Huzhaifah bin Al-Yaman berkata, “Manusia biasa bertanya pada Rasulullah saw. tentang kebaikan, sedang aku bertanya kepada beliau tentang kejahatan, karena khawatir akan mengenaiku.” Saya berkata, “Wahai Rasulullah, kami dahulu di masa Jahiliyah dan penuh kejahatan, kemudian Allah mendatangkan kebaikan ini (Islam). Apakah setelah kebaikan ini ada lagi keburukan?” Rasul saw. menjawab, ”Ya.” “Apakah setelah keburukan itu ada kebaikan?” Rasul saw. menjawab, ”Ya, tetapi ada polusinya.” “Apa polusinya?” Rasul saw. menjawab, ”Kaum yang mengambil hidayah dengan hidayah yang bukan dariku, engkau kenali dan engkau ingkari.” Saya berkata, ”Apakah setelah kebaikan itu ada keburukan?” Rasul saw. menjawab, ”Ya, tetapi ada para penyeru ke neraka jahanam; barangsiapa yang menyambut mereka ke neraka, maka mereka melamparkannya ke dalam neraka.” Saya berkata, ”Ya Rasulullah, terangkan ciri mereka pada kami?” Rasul saw. menjawab, ”(Kulit) mereka sama dengan kulit kita, berbicara sesuai bahasa kita.” Saya berkata, ”Apa yang engkau perintahkan padaku jika aku menjumpai hal itu?” Rasul saw. bersabda, ”Komitmen dengan jamaah muslimin dan imamnya.” Saya berkata, ”Jika tidak ada pada mereka jamaah dan imam?” Rasul saw. menjawab, ”Tinggalkan semua firqah itu, walaupun engkau harus menggigit akar pohon sampai menjumpai kematian dan engkau tetap dalam kondisi tersebut.” (Bukhari dan Muslim)Hadits ini menceritakan satu informasi kenabian yang mutlak kebenarannya. Apalagi hadits ini diriwayatkan oleh Imam Bukhari dan Imam Muslim, dua imam hadits yang disepakati keshahihan haditsnya oleh para ulama. Dan hadits ini dikeluarkan oleh Huzhaifah bin Yaman ra. seorang sahabat Rasul shalallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam yang sangat pakar di bidang fitnah dan masa depan. Pertanyaan yang dikemukakan Huzhaifah terasa aneh, kalau sahabat lain bertanya tentang kebaikan, justru ia bertanya tentang keburukan, agar dapat diantisipasi oleh dirinya dan umat Islam. Huzhaifah paling tahu masalah-masalah rahasia, tidak salah kalau ia disebut inteljen Rasulullah saw. Umar bin Khattab ra. ketika ingin mengetahui orang-orang munafik bertanya pada Huzhaifah bin Yaman. Bahkan Umar sendiri –karena begitu besar rasa takutnya– bertanya apakah ada sifat kemunafikan pada dirinya, yang kemudian di jawab Huzhaifah, tidak ada.Hadits ini menceritakan betapa nanti akan terjadi distorsi pengamalan umat Islam terhadap ajaran Islam. Sehingga Islam diliputi polusi atau syubhat yang mengkaburkan kebenaran ajaran Islam. Pada saat itulah muncul fitnah dan banyak orang-orang yang menyeru ke pintu neraka Jahanam (Du’at ilaa abwaabi Jahnnam).Dakwah yang paling gencar yang dilakukan para penyeru ke jahanam adalah mengajak manusia agar tidak melibatkan Islam dalam kehidupan mereka. Pada sisi yang lain mereka juga menyeru untuk menghalalkan segala cara dalam aktivitas kehidupannya. Dari sisi pemikiran yang banyak diseru oleh para penyeru ke neraka jahanam adalah kesesatan, penyimpangan, dan syubhat yang dimasukkan atas nama ajaran Islam. Sehingga muncullah aliran sesat dan gerakan kemurtadan yang mengatasnamakan Islam, dan umat Islam banyak yang tertipu dengan ajakan mereka.
Memiliki Warna Kulit dan Bahasa yang Sama dengan Mayoritas Rakyat.Para penyeru tersebut ternyata para pemimpin atau tokoh masyarakat atau tokoh politik atau tokoh agama yang diikuti oleh banyak masa sebagaimana disebutkan dalam riwayat lain oleh imam Muslim, yaitu: “Pemimpin yang tidak mengambil hidayah Rasul dan juga tidak mengikuti sunnahnya.” Ungkapan yang sama juga disebutkan dalam Al-Qur’an surat Al-Qashash: 41-42, “Dan Kami jadikan mereka pemimpin-pemimpin yang menyeru (manusia) ke neraka dan pada hari kiamat mereka tidak akan ditolong. Dan Kami ikutkanlah laknat kepada mereka di dunia ini; dan pada hari kiamat mereka termasuk orang-orang yang dijauhkan (dari rahmat Allah).”Mereka muncul dari kelompok Islam dan memimpin umat Islam. Kulit dan bahasanya sama dengan mayoritas umat Islam. Merekalah kelompok yang paling bahaya bagi umat Islam karena mereka menggunakan istilah-istilah Islam yang dapat menyesatkan umat Islam, mereka juga sangat membahayakan karena lahir dari kelompok Islam dan memiliki pengikut yang banyak dari umat Islam.2. Mengajak Manusia ke Neraka JahannamUngkapan-ungkapan mereka mengandung kekufuran dan kefasikan, dan mereka menyangka itu benar. Ungkapan kufur itu dibungkus ayat-ayat Al-Qur’an dan Hadits. Sementara masyarakat awam banyak yang mengikuti pemimpin tersebut karena kebodohannya. Ungkapannya ibarat sabda, perbuatannya selalu dianggap benar. Pemimpin tersebut mengajak rakyatnya untuk masuk ke neraka Jahanam (sadar atau tidak sadar) dengan berbagai macam cara. Maka mereka adalah pemimpin yang sesat dan menyesatkan.Adapun cara-cara yang digunakan manusia untuk menyesatkan mereka dan mengajak ke neraka antara lain:a. Memimpin rakyatnya ke jalan setan yang mengantarkan ke neraka. “Ia berjalan di muka kaumnya di hari kiamat lalu memasukkan mereka ke dalam neraka. Neraka itu seburuk-buruk tempat yang didatangi.” (QS. Hud: 98)b. Mengunakan sarana media massa. “(ucapan mereka) menyebabkan mereka memikul dosa-dosanya dengan sepenuh-penuhnya pada hari kiamat, dan sebagian dosa-dosa orang yang mereka sesatkan yang tidak mengetahui sedikitpun (bahwa mereka disesatkan). Ingatlah, amat buruklah dosa yang mereka pikul itu.” (QS An-Nahl: 25) “Mereka ingin memadamkan cahaya Allah dengan mulut (tipu daya) mereka, tetapi Allah (justru) menyempurnakan cahaya-Nya, walau orang-orang kafir membencinya.” (QS. As-Shaaf: 8 ).c. Menggunakan sarana musik dan nyanyian. “Dan di antara manusia (ada) orang yang mempergunakan perkataan yang tidak berguna untuk menyesatkan (manusia) dari jalan Allah tanpa pengetahuan dan menjadikan jalan Allah itu olok-olokan. mereka itu akan memperoleh azab yang menghinakan.” (QS. Luqmaan: 6)d. Mengubah nikmat Allah dengan kekufuran. “Tidakkah kamu perhatikan orang-orang yang telah menukar nikmat Allah dengan kekafiran dan menjatuhkan kaumnya ke lembah kebinasaan? Yaitu, neraka Jahanam; mereka masuk ke dalamnya; dan itulah seburuk-buruk tempat kediaman.”Dalam upayanya untuk menyesatkan manusia para pemimpin itu menggunakan berbagai macam cara yang dikuasainya. Seperti menggunakan harta untuk menipu kaum lemah dan miskin, menggunakan media. Bahkan, kalau tidak mau tunduk, mereka menyiksanya dan membunuhnya. Begitulah di antara ciri penyeru ke neraka Jahanam.3. Mereka Memiliki Hati SetanHal ini sebagaimana disebutkan dalam hadits riwayat Muslim: ”Hati mereka adalah hati setan dalam jasad manusia.” Para penyeru ke neraka Jahanam hati mereka sangat keras melebihi kerasnya batu sehingga tidak merasakan apa yang dirasakan umatnya. Bahkan untuk mengokohkan kekuasaanya mereka tidak segan-segan menyakiti, menyiksa, dan membunuh rakyatnya (pengikutnya) sendiri.Sesungguhnya hati jika sudah mengeras, maka kehilangan daya sensitivitasnya. Mereka menganggap sama antara yang baik dengan yang buruk, tidak merasakan penderitaan rakyatnya. Semuanya serba diremehkan. Kesakitan masyarakat dianggap biasa, lumrah, dan tidak dianggap repot. Dan hati setan tentu saja lebih keras dan lebih jahat dari semua hati. Penderitaan masyarakat dianggap hiburan yang menyenangkan. Kesesatan masyarakat adalah tujuan mereka sehingga pada saat masyarakat sesat memudahkan untuk ditundukkan dan patuh kepadanya.
Mengekor pada Orang lainWalaupun di mata masyarakat mereka adalah pemimpin tetapi pada dasarnya mereka mengekor pihak lain. Para penyeru ke neraka jahanam biasanya adalah antek-antek orang kafir. Allah swt berfirman: Dan bila mereka berjumpa dengan orang-orang yang beriman, mereka mengatakan: “Kami telah beriman.” Dan bila mereka kembali kepada setan-setan mereka, mereka mengatakan: “Sesungguhnya kami sependirian dengan kamu, kami hanyalah berolok-olok.” (QS. Al Baqarah: 14).2. Menganggap Rendah KaumnyaKarena mengekor pada yang lain sehingga mereka merasakan dan menganggap rendah pada diri dan kaumnya. Mereka memaksa kaumnya untuk mengikuti pola hidup kaum kafir yang menjadi acuan. Karena itu, pemimpin -pemimpin seperti ini pada hakekatnya pengekor.3. Menghancurkan Nilai-Nilai MoralPara penyeru ke neraka Jahanam menginginkan agar masyarakat tidak komitmen pada ajaran Islam, karena hal itu akan menyulitkan mereka. Lebih dari itu ketika masyarakat komitmen pada ajaran Islam maka mereka susah menguasainya sehingga mereka berusaha menjauhkan masyarakat dari nilai-nilai Islam. Allah swt. berfirman: “Dan orang-orang yang kafir maka kecelakaanlah bagi mereka dan Allah menghapus amal-amal mereka. Yang demikian itu adalah karena sesungguhnya mereka benci kepada apa yang diturunkan Allah (Al-Qur’an) lalu Allah menghapuskan (pahala-pahala) amal-amal mereka.” (QS. Muhammad: 8-9).4. Memerangi Dakwah IslamIni terjadi jika kekuasaan ada di tangan mereka. Mungkin pada awalnya mereka tidak secara langsung memerangi dakwah tetapi mempersempit ruang lingkupnya. Mereka kemudian menuduh orang-orang yang berdakwah dengan tuduhan yang keji seperti ekstrimis, fundamentalis, provokator, dan teroris. Hal ini menyebabkan masa menjauhi dakwah dan aktivisnya. Di sisi lain menumbuhsuburkan dakwah yang tidak membahayakan kekuasaannya seperti menumbuhsuburkan tasawuf, filsafat, pemikiran sosialis, dan lain-lain. Lebih jauh lagi mereka berani menyiksa dan membunuh aktivis dakwah karena mereka sudah memvonisnya sebagai teroris yang membahayakan negara.Demikian aktivitas para penyeru ke neraka Jahanam menggiring manusia untuk disesatkan dengan berbagai macam cara dan sarana sampai pada akhirnya mereka mengikuti penyeru tersebut untuk masuk bersama-sama ke neraka Jahanam. Oleh karena itu para dai kebenaran tidak boleh gentar menghadapi mereka dan terus-menerus mendakwahkan Islam, mengikhlaskan niat, merapatkan barisan menggalang kekuatan, dan menjelaskan kesalahan dan kesesatan mereka sehingga masyarakat tahu dan sadar akan kebenaran ajaran Islam dan sampai ajaran Islam tegak di bumi ini.Sikap Muslim terhadap merekaSikap yang harus dilakukan oleh setiap muslim dalam menghadapi kelompok ini dapat dipetakan dalam beberapa tahap:1. BersabarYang dimaksud bersabar di sini bukan sabar menerima kebatilan mereka, tetapi bersabar dalam menolak kebatilan mereka, karena diam dalam kemaksiatan adalah sebuah kemaksiatan. Bersabar ketika sebagian umat Islam terkena fitnah dan keburukan mereka. Bersabar untuk terus melakukan persiapan diri untuk menghadapi keburukan mereka2. Melakukan ReformasiUmat Islam semuanya harus turut melakukan reformasi. Reformasi dari sistem yang ada menuju sistem Islam. Reformasi dari akhlak yang penuh dengan bentuk kemaksiatan seperti kemusyrikan, perzinaan, seks bebas dan pornografi, korupsi, kezaliman lainnya, menuju akhlak Islam.3. Komitmen dengan Persatuan Umat IslamDalam kondisi yang serba rusak ini, maka umat Islam harus terjaga keislamannya dan terhindar dari berbagai macam polusi jahiliyah. Umat Islam harus komitmen kepada persatuan umat Islam, menjauh dari penyimpangan, dan berjuang untuk menegakkan Islam. Dan itulah kunci selamat dari fitnah.4. BerjihadDan cara yang terakhir yang harus dilakukan oleh orang-orang beriman, sesuai dengan arahan Al-Qur’an dan Sunnah, yaitu berjihad terus menerus dengan berbagai macam tingkatan jihad untuk menghancurkan kebatilan dan kemungkaran sehingga tidak ada lagi fitnah di muka bumi ini, dan ketundukkan dan ketaatan hanya untuk Allah semata. Wallahu a’lam bishawwab.
