Hidayah for Obama...

The new U.S President, Barack Hussein Obama is expected to start his work on next Wednesday to plan a formal administration takeover on January 20, 2009 and assembling a team to tackle the financial crisis and other challenges including to fulfill his campaign promises.
Among others, he has to restore U.S. leadership in the world by working closely with foreign allies, to withdraw U.S. troops from Iraq in the first 16 months of his ter and to bolster U.S. troop levels in Afghanistan.
But, what is more important than all the above is that, I hope that one day hidayah will eventually come to him.
In an interview with Nicholas Kristof, published in The New York Times 2007, Obama recited the Muslim call to prayer, the Azan, with a first-class arabic accent. He said, the Muslim call to prayer is "one of the prettiest sounds on Earth." [Read More...]

But, Obama asserted, "I've always been a Christian," and he has adamantly denied ever having been a Muslim. "The only connection I've had to Islam is that my grandfather on my father's side came from that country [Kenya]. But I've never practiced Islam." He also claimed: "I have never been a Muslim. … other than my name and the fact that I lived in a populous Muslim country for 4 years when I was a child [Indonesia, 1967-71] I have very little connection to the Islamic religion."
Barack Obama waves with his daughter Sasha as he comes onto stage holding her hand to speak to supporters during his election night rally after being declared the winner of the 2008 presidential election in Chicago, November 4, 2008.

Assalamualaikum, terima kasih kepada semua pengomen yg sudi meninggalkan 'bekas dan kesan' selepas menziarahi blog ini melalui komen2 bernas.

Atie dan pendekar,
Memang benar, hidayat milik Allah namun usaha atas hidayah perlu dilakukan sebagaimana Nabi s.a.w mengusahakan hidayah walaupun baginda tahu baginda tidak boleh beri hidayah walaupun kepada orang yang baginda sayangi pakcik baginda, Abu Talib.
Begitupun, menurut apa yg dikatakan oleh ulama, hidayat itu ada cara untuk diusahakan, tempat/lokasi yang usaha itu dilakukan iaitu berpusat di masjid, masa yg sesuai ... etc.
Manusia sentiasa perlukan hidayah kerana dgn hidayah manusia boleh mencapai martabat yang tinggi melebihi malaikat, namun tanpa hidayat manusia merundum martabat paling rendah lebih rendah daripada haiwan.
Nabi bila berjumpa orang Islam maka Nabi dakwahkan orang Islam kepada iman.
Apabila jumpa orang bukan Islam, Nabi dakwahkan kepada Islam.
Dalam kes Obama, kita pun tahu dia kristian dan tidak mementingkan agama dalam hidupnya. Malah hari ini dia melantik seorang yahudi, Rahm Emanuel sebagai Ketua Staf di White House. Rahm terkenal dgn keras, berat sebelah dan pernah jadi tentera sukarela Israel.
Bahkan, byk pihak menganggap dasar luar amerika mungkin tidak banyak berubah kerana pentadbiran amerika sentiasa dikelilingi oleh pelobi-pelobi yahudi yang berkepentingan terus dengan zionis.
Bagaimanapun, kita semua beruntung kerana hidayat di tangan Allah. Maka Allah boleh beri sesiapa sahaja hidayat, Saidina Umar r.a pada mulanya hendak bunuh Nabi tetapi memeluk Islam. Nabi doa hidayat supaya Umar masuk Islam.
Dan kita jangan benci kepada batang tubuh manusia itu kerana menjadi tanggungjawab kita untuk mendakwahkan mereka, yg kita benci adalah kekufuran itu. Nabi menangis bila melihat jenazah orang yahudi. Kita tidak boleh benci kepada yahudi tetapi kita kena kesian kepada orang bukan Islam dan kita doakan hidayat untuk mereka. Kita perlu kasih dan sayang kepada semua makhluk ciptaan Allah.
Kita tidak berhajat sedikit pun kepada mereka atau kuasa2 mereka. Kita takut dan bergantung harap hanya kepada Allah. Wallahualam, Sekian.
