Cinta bukan perasaan tetapi...

Assalammualaikum dan salam sejahtera,

Cinta bukan perasaan tetapi pengorbanan yang begitu agung yang dilakukan oleh manusia bergantung kepada sejauh mana tingginya rasa cinta tersebut. Tiada kayu ukur untuk menilai sejauh mana seorang itu mengasihi atau mencintai apa yang dicintainya. Ianya mungkin boleh di nilai oleh seseorang sebagai cinta yang agong tetapi mungkin orang lain pula tidak menilai demikian kerana ianya bergantung kepada pengorbanan yang telah dilakukannya.

Apabila kita memperkatakan tentang cinta kepada Allah swt seseorang mungkin sanggup mengorbankan segala harta yang mereka ada untuk mencari segala yang menyenangkan atau membuatkan dirinya dikasihi dan di redai oleh Allah swt. Islam mengariskan tentang iman berkait dengan cinta, dimana tidak beriman seorang kamu selagi tidak mencintai Allah swt dan rasulullah saw melebihi diri mereka sendiri, ini bermaksud soal hati adalah suatu yang begitu unik yang perlu kita lihat dan teliti agar ianya sentiasa kita kaitkan dengan Allah swt dan menjadikan kehidupan kita ini sebenarnya hanya untuk Allah swt.

Kebolehan dan keupayaan manusia didalam menilai dan memberikan cinta adalah suatu yang tidak dapat digambarkan kerana manusia boleh melakukan apa sahaja demi cintanya. Oleh sebab itu kita perlu meletakkan cinta ini pada tempat yang sesuai agar kita dapat menyelamatkan diri kita apabila berhadapan dengan Allah swt nanti. Kita perlu sedar jika kita sanggup melakukan apa sahaja sehingga melanggar perintah allah swt kerana cinta maka diketika itu kemurkaan Allah swt akan menyukarkan kehidupan di akhirat nanti. Jika kita kasihkan anak kita maka berilah mereka perlindungan untuk selamat di akhirat nanti, bukan kita memberikan segala yang ad adi dunia tetapi mereka tidak mengenal Allah swt di dalam kehidupan mereka.

Bukan erti cinta kepada isteri kita mengikuti segala kemahuannya tetapi apakah segala kemahuan mereka mengikut kehendak Allah swt dan selari dengan apa yang di ajarkan oleh allah swt kepada manusia. Disini sekiranya kita merasakan ingin dicintai atau mencintai, Tanya dahulu apakah sebenarnya yang kita cari adakah untuk mendapat keredaannya atau mencari kemurkaan Allah swt. Ingat kehidupan kita hanya sebentar dan sekiranya kita tidak melakukan dengan penuh hati-hati ditakuti kita menyesal dan penyesalaan itu tiada guna lagi buat diri kita diakhirat nanti. Allah hu alam


HOPE is a Waking Dream ... with LOVE everything is POSSIBLE

An incredible love story has come out of China recently and managed to touch the world. It is a story of a man and an older woman who ran off to live and love each other in peace for over half a century. The 70-year-old Chinese man who hand-carved over 6,000 stairs up a mountain for his 80-year-old wife has passed away in the cave which has been the couple's home for the last 50 years. Over 50 years ago, Liu Guojiang a 19 year-old boy, fell in love with a 29 year-old widowed mother named Xu Chaoqin..

In a twist worthy of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, friends and relatives criticized the relationship because of the age difference and the fact that Xu already had children. At that time, it was unacceptable and immoral for a young man to love an older woman.. To avoid the market gossip and the scorn of their communities, the couple decided to elope and lived in a cave in Jiangjin County in Southern ChongQing Municipality. In the beginning, life was harsh as hey had nothing, no electricity or even food. They had to eat grass and roots they found in the mountain, and Liu made a kerosene lamp that they used to light up their lives. Xu felt that she had tied Liu down and repeatedly asked him, 'Are you regretful? Liu always replied, 'As long as we are industrious, life will improve.' In the second year of living in the mountain, Liu began and continued for over 50 years, to hand-carve the steps so that his wife could get down the mountain easily

Half a century later in 2001, a group of adventurers were exploring the forest and were surprised to find the elderly couple and the over 6,000 hand-carved steps. Liu MingSheng, one of their seven children said, 'My parents loved each other so much, they have lived in seclusion for over 50 years and never been apart a single day. He hand carved more than 6,000 steps over the years for my mother's convenience, although she doesn't go down the mountain that much.' The couple had lived in peace for over 50 years until last week. Liu, now 72 years, returned from his daily farm work and collapsed. Xu sat and prayed with her husband as he passed away in her arms. So in love with Xu, was Liu, that no one was able to release the grip he had on his wife's hand even after he had passed away. 'You promised me you'll take care of me, you'll always be with me until the day I died, now you left before me, how am I going to live without you?' Xu spent days softly repeating this sentence and touching her husband's black coffin with tears rolling down her cheeks. In 2006, their story became one of the top 10 love stories from China , collected by the Chinese Women Weekly. The local government has decided to preserve the love ladder and the place they lived as a museum, so this love story can live forever.
