Dangers Of Materialistic Views, For Life Muslim Household

Materialistic outlook today, hitting a lot of human life. Even some Muslims are also affected by the neglect of this life. Namely forward outlook on life that only a limited effort to get momentary pleasure in this mortal world, so that activities are executed only lives revolve around the problem of how to create jobs, develop the economy, build houses and buildings, fulfilling life satisfaction and things other worldly, without thinking of consequences and attitudes that should be done. Seemed to assume, that happiness can only be achieved with the treasure. As a result, this materialistic view of disturbing the harmony and tranquility of a Muslim household. Neglecting the core purpose of its creation, servitude to Allah alone in every aspect of life. Allah says:

وماخلقت الجن والإنس إلاليعبدون مآأريد منهم من رزق ومآأريد أن يطعمون إن الله هو الرزاق ذو القوة المتين

“I only created jinn and man to worship Me. I do not want sustenance at all from them and I do not want to give I eat. Verily Allah is He Who Has the Supreme Giver of sustenance power again Very Sturdy.” [Adh Dzariyat: 56-58]

In effect, often women also worked hard, to exert all the way to get a lot of treasure. In his mind, which develops only how to rule the world with abundant wealth, happiness and peace as dependent on the property; when the Prophet sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam said: “O Abu Dhar. Do you think because many people become rich treasure? “I (Abu Dhar) replied:” Yes, O Messenger of Allah “. He said: “And you thought, because the property a few people become poor?” I (Abu Dhar) said: “Yes, O Messenger of Allah”. He said: “Verily, wealth is a sufficiency in the liver, and poverty are the poor heart”. [HR Hakim and Ibn Hibban].

Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala says:

خسر الدنيا والأخرة ذلك هو الخسران المبين

“Lost it in the world and the Hereafter. That is a real loss”. [Al-Hajj: 11]

God created the world not to mess around or sendau joke, but God created it for a great wisdom, as Allah says:

إنا جعلنا ماعلى الأرض زينة لها لنبلوهم أيهم أحسن عملا

“Surely We have made what is on earth as an ornament to him so we tested them who were among the best deeds”. [Al-Kahf: 7].

God created the world is nothing but the afterlife is as a farm village and the village for charity. While the afterlife as a village reap in return. Whoever fills the world with good deeds, surely he will reap a fortune in the two villages. Conversely, those who squander their world, surely he will lose akhiratnya.

God made the various pleasures of the world and jewelry outward form of property, children, wife, status, power and various other benefits, which should be used as a means to gain happiness in the hereafter. From Tsauban, that the Prophet sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam said:

ليتخذ أحدكم قلبا شاكرا ولسانا ذاكرا وزوجة مؤمنة تعين أحدكم على أمر الآخرة

“Be of you have a grateful heart, oral shalihah dhikr and wife who helps in the affairs of the Hereafter”. [Reported by Ahmad and Ibn Majah].

In fact, most people focus on the aspects of physical and material enjoyment alone. Every day was busy with work to get the treasures and pleasures of the world, that I forget to prepare lunch for the charity of life after death; some even deny another life after this earthly life. Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala says.

وقالوا إن هي إلا حياتنا الدنيا ومانحن بمبعوثين

“And of course they will say (again)” nothing but our life in this world, and we never will be raised. “[Al Al-An` am: 29].

Allah threatens those who have a stunted view of the world. Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala says:

من كان يريد الحياة الدنيا وزينتها نوف إليهم أعمالهم فيها وهم فيها لايبخسون أولئك الذين ليس لهم في الأخرة إلا النار وحبط ماصنعوا فيها وباطل ماكانوا يعملون

“Whoever desires this world’s life and her jewelry, We shall give to their children their jobs in the world with perfect and they are in the world was not harmed. That the people who do not get in the hereafter, except hell and gone in the afterlife is what they have try in the world, and futile to what they have done “. [Hud: 15-16].

The impact of the threat of the above applies to all people who have a materialist view, namely those who do good simply for-profit world, like: hypocrites, infidels, those who adhered to the schools of capitalism, communism and secularism. God will make this life seem narrow for them. The Prophet sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam said:

من كانت الدنيا همه فرق الله عليه أمره وجعل فقره بين عينيه ولم يأته من الدنيا إلا ما كتب له ومن كانت الآخرة نيته جمع الله له أمره وجعل غناه في قلبه وأتته الدنيا وهي راغمة

“Whoever makes his world as its primary purpose, then God will make his case fall apart, poverty was in front of his eyes and the world is not coming, unless specified for him alone. And whoever made the Hereafter (a) his intention, Allah will facilitate business and make sense of adequacy embedded in his heart and the world will come by itself “. [Hadith of Ibn Majah with a sahih chain of transmission]

The world is not everything, will be destroyed. He was just a mere bridge crossing. All infrastructure and facilities which God had in this world, wealth, power, etc., should be optimized as much as possible for the greater interest, achieve the most good afterlife.

Therefore, essentially beyond reproach dzatnya world. Praise or blame depending on the actions of a servant to live a life cycle in the world. Once again, world, life is virtual.

The good life derived by a resident of heaven, not least because kindness and good deeds they had planted when in the world. Then the world is the home of jihad, praying, fasting and infak in the way of Allah, and the field to compete in goodness. Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala said to the people of Paradise, it means:

كلوا واشربوا هنيئا بمآأسلفتم في الأيام الخالية

“(To be said)” Eat and drink with the odor caused by a charity that you did in the days that have past (when in the world). “[Al Haqqah: 24].

We should prepare ourselves to leave the village towards the abode of the Hereafter world with good deeds are always adding deposits and hasten to the call of God.

Ali ibn Abi Talib radi ‘anhu said: “Surely the world has gone passed and the next closer. And each having offspring. Be your child’s descent into the afterlife and do not be children of the world, because now there is a chance good deed without reckoning (peratnggungjawaban) and tomorrow in the next period of computation practice and there is no chance charity “. Ali ibn Abi Talib radi ‘anhu said: “halal is accounted for, and illegitimate is hell”.

O my brother Muslims, remember to four things: I know that rezekiku will not eat other people, Have peace of my soul. I know that amalku would not other people do, then I will disibukkannya. I know that death will come suddenly, so I immediately set it up. And I know that I will not escape the observation of God, then I would feel ashamed of Him. [See Manaqib Al Iman Ahmad Ibn Jawzi, Maktabah Al Hany, Chapter As Siaru, Vol. 11, pp. 485 and Wafayat Al A’yan, op.cit, Vol. 2, pp. 27].

People who emptied his heart from the desire of the world will feel lighter without the burden, the total to meet God and prepare for the coming journey. Emptying the heart to the world of mortals does not mean leaving the workforce, are reluctant to seek the life of the world and not try to attempt. Islam itself was ordered to work and regarded it as a kind of jihad, if the intentions are sincere and qualified trust and sincerity, and does not violate the Shari’a. (Um Ahmad).
