Alhamdulillah, syukran to the almighty. I still live and breath in His world. It’s been a long time I haven’t update my blog since back from oversea. Probably busy with something that I can’t refuse. Hopefully, I can write some story.
When talking about Eid-ul Adha, it means a sacrifice. Muslims around the world will do sacrifice or in other word Qurban. They will slaughtered cow, camel, goat or lamb. But in my region we usually using cow.
Talking about sacrifice, some people sacrifice their time to spend time with family, leaving their job so they can take good care of their family. Some people sacrifice their desire, so they can satisfy their family needs.
Some people sacrifice their happiness, to make their family happy. Some people working so hard so they can fulfill their family needs. Some people struggle so hard to fight their sickness because they don’t want their family worried.
But it’s a shame, this kind of sacrifice is meaningless to those ungrateful person.
They is a hadith for this ungrateful person (specific wife)
Narrated Abdullah bin Abbas (RA):
During the lifetime of Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ), the sun eclipsed. Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) offered the prayer of (the) eclipse) and so did the people along with him. He performed a long Qiyam (standing posture) during which Surat-al-Baqara could have been recited; then he performed a pro-longed bowing, then raised his head and stood for a long time which was slightly less than that of the first Qiyam (and recited Qur’an). Then he performed a prolonged bowing again but the period was shorter than the period of the first bowing, then he stood up and then prostrated. Again he stood up, but this time the period of standing was less than the first standing. Then he performed a prolonged bowing but of a lesser duration than the first, then he stood up again for a long time but for a lesser duration than the first. Then he performed a prolonged bowing but of lesser duration than the first, and then he again stood up, and then prostrated and then finished his prayer. By then the sun eclipse had cleared. The Prophet (ﷺ) then said, “The sun and the moon are two signs among the signs of Allah, and they do not eclipse because of the death or birth of someone, so when you observe the eclipse, remember Allah (offer the eclipse prayer).” They (the people) said, “O Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ)! We saw you stretching your hand to take something at this place of yours, then we saw you stepping backward.” He said, “I saw Paradise (or Paradise was shown to me), and I stretched my hand to pluck a bunch (of grapes), and had I plucked it, you would have eaten of it as long as this world exists. Then I saw the (Hell) Fire, and I have never before, seen such a horrible sight as that, and I saw that the majority of its dwellers were women.” The people asked, “O Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ)! What is the reason for that?” He replied, “Because of their ungratefulness.” It was said. “Do they disbelieve in Allah (are they ungrateful to Allah)?” He replied, “They are not thankful to their husbands and are ungrateful for the favors done to them. Even if you do good to one of them all your life, when she seems some harshness from you, she will say, “I have never seen any good from you.’ ”
Sahih al-Bukhari (5197)
Thus, a wife disobedient and ungrateful to her husband does nothing but prepares bad for herself in the Hereafter.
I hope with this small article will be a reminder to all my readers, my family and also to myself. Hopefully, Eid-ul Adha this will bring more prosperity and happiness to all of us. He who can bow down to Allah can stand up to anything.
