The Meaning of Sacred Guidance

Istikhara, the solah which is too common to be related with the need of guidance. Where the Muslim seek for an answer from his Lord, the God All Knowing. Where he will bow his head on the ground asking for direction on choosing two different roads that seem merge together. Where he will submit his life to his Lord because He is the One who hold his soul.


The confusion, the doubt all are too big to be put upon an ordinary man. He is in search of guidance. The guidance needed to lighten the darkness in his heart. The guidance needed to return back his peace he always dreams about.

Perhaps, only at this moment, the servant knows the meaning of the solah he always did before. Where, all the decisions will be made by Him. Allah the Almighty. The God who knows each single matter in someone’s heart. Who keeps the secret of life, the destiny of His servants, the ending story of each of His creation.. To Him, his servants should seek for a piece of guidance.

We never know how we will end, we never know with who we will spend the remaining seconds, we never know either we see the paradise or the hell when we face sakaratulmaut (the last moments before we die). All we can do, is to pray. So that, we will get the best ending.

Keep asking because He always listening. He delays the reply to test the loyalty of His servant seeking the truth. Believe, the best has yet to come..

***
Only at this moment, the servant knows what it feels to find the best companion. To accompany him, walk alongside in giving the best services to please their God. To commit themselves to the works of Islam. The love comes when two souls are tied on His path. With His will and His guidance.


He knows the time has come. And the decision is waiting to be made. Only with the light from Him.

“Oo Lord, this heart will only belong to someone You direct me to..”





"Verily, my solah, my sacrifice, my living, and my dying are for Allah, the Lord of all that exists."
