Mengirim Salam kepada Nabi ﷺ

Para Sahabat (ra) biasa melewati Nabi (saw) dan memberi salam. Tugas kita adalah mengucapkan, “As-salaamu `alayka yaa ayyuha ‘n-Nabi.

Kita harus bertafakur ketika mengucapkan “As-Salaamu `alayka” di dalam shalat kita, bahkan hanya untuk sesaat, karena Nabi (saw) hadir. Shalat tidak diterima bila beliau (saw) tidak hadir dan melihat kalian. Jika beliau tidak hadir maka kalian akan merugi.
Jadi beliau hadir karena kita mengucapkannya di dalam at-Tahiyyat, “As-salaamu `alayka yaa ayyuhan- nabiyyu (yaa Muhammad)!” menyapanya secara langsung dan beliau hadir, tetapi kalian tidak melihatnya, beliau berada di sana. Allahumma shalli `ala Sayyidina Muhammad.

Sebagaimana yang dikatakan oleh para Awliya, kita harus bersyukur kepada Allah bahwa Dia telah menjadikan kita sebagai bagian dari umatnya dan mengajarkan kita apa yang perlu kita pelajari dari para Sahabatnya (ra). Para Sahabat (ra) menanggung beban yang berat, mereka menyebarkan Islam ke mana-mana; mereka berkorban dan ada yang terbunuh, sementara kita tidak melakukan apa-apa.

Dengan semua itu, Nabi (saw) bersabda, “Kalian adalah ash-haabi, mereka adalah ahbaabi, mereka percaya padaku walau tidak melihatku, namun aku melihat mereka.” Nabi (saw) melihat kita. Jika beliau mengatakan, “Aku mengamati amal umatku setiap hari,” di Makamnya yang Suci, apakah maksudnya? Beliau melihat, namun kita tidak hadir. Beliau hadir. Ketika kita mengatakan, “hadhirun, nadhirun,” Nabi (saw) melihat! Oleh sebab itu kit harus menjaga adab.

Ketika kalian pergi bekerja di pagi hari, kalian mandi terlebih dahulu, mengapa? Untuk membersihkan diri kita agar siap ketika berada di depan boss atau presiden perusahaan. Mengapa kita tidak membersihkan diri kita di hadapan Nabi (saw)? Pertanyaan kedua, mengapa kita tidak menunjukkan hormat kepada Allah (swt)? Agar bersih, kalian membersihkan jiw dan raga kalian. Itulah yang mereka inginkan melalui shalat, tetapi kalian harus detang dalam keadaan bersih dan kita, kita penuh dengan… kita mohon ampun. Jika kita mohon ampun, Allah akan mengampuni. Untuk itu kita ucapkan, “astaghfirullah.”

Jadi, ketika kalian akan pergi menjumpai tunangan atau istri kalian, atau kalian akan pergi mengunjungi teman kalian, kalian akan mengenakan pakaian terbaik kalian bukan? Mengapa? Karena kalian mencintai orang yang akan kalian jumpai, kalian tidak akan berpenampilan kotor.

 

Send salam to Prophet ﷺ

The Sahaabah (r) used to pass by Prophet (s) and give salaam. Our duty is to say, “As-salaamu `alayka yaa ayyuha ‘n-Nabi.”

We have to meditate when we say “As-Salaamu `alayka” in our prayers, even for a moment, because Prophet (s) is hadir, present. The prayer is not accepted if he (s) is not present and seeing you. If he is not present you are lost.

So he is present because we say in at-Tahiyyat, “As-salaamu `alayka yaa ayyuhan- nabiyyu (yaa Muhammad)!” addressing him directly and he appears, but you don’t see, he is there. Allahumma salli `ala Sayyidina Muhammad.

As Awliya say, we have to thank Allah that He made us from his Ummah and taught us what we need to learn through his Sahaabah (r). The Sahaabah (r) took the heavy burden, they spread Islam everywhere; they were killed and sacrificed, we didn’t do anything.

With all that Prophet (s) said, “You are ashaabi they are ahbaabi, they believe in me and didn’t see me but I saw them.” Prophet (s) is seeing us. If he says, “I observe the `amal of my Ummah everyday,” in his Holy Grave, what does it mean? He is seeing, we are not present. He is present. When we say, “hadirun, nadirun,” Prophet (s) is seeing! Then we have to behave.

When you go to work in the morning you take a shower first, why? To clean yourself in order to be in front of the company boss or president. Why are we not cleaning ourselves in front of Prophet (s)? The second question: why are we not showing respect to Allah (swt)? To be clean, you can clean your body and your soul. That is what they all want through prayer, but you have to come clean and for us we are full of …we ask for forgiveness. If we ask for forgiveness Allah will forgive. For that we say, “astaghfirullah.”
So when you want to go see your fiance or your wife, or you are going to visit your friend, you dress your best and go, is it not? Why? Because you love the one you are going to see, you are not going dirty.
