1  Islam / Inspirational Islamic Stories / Story of Bilquis, Queen of Seba on: July 20, 2010, 01:04:02 PM
Resources: http://www.ldii-sidoarjo.org
There is a tale narrated by Ibn-Athir about the divorce of father and mother of Bilqis, Queen Seba as an example that should not su'udz-dzan:
قال كثير من الرواة: إنّ أمّها جنّيّة ابنة ملك الجنّ واسمها رواحة بنت السكر، وقيل: اسم أمّها يلقمة بنت عمرو بن عمير الجنّيّ، وإنّما نكح أبوها إلى الجنّ لأنّه قال: ليس في الإنس لي كفوة، فخطب إلى الجنّ فزوّجوه واختلفوا في سبب وصوله إلى الجنّ حتى خطب إليهم فقيل: إنّه كان لهجاً بالصيد، فربّما اصطاد الجنّ على صور الظباء فيخلّي عنهنّ، فظهر له ملك الجنّ وشكره علي ذلك واتخذه صديقاً، فخطب ابنته فأنكحه على أن يعطيه ساحل البحر ما بين يبرين إلى عدن؛ وقيل: إنّ أباها خرج يوماً متصيّداً فرأي حديتين تقتتلان بيضاء وسوداء وقد ظهرت السوداء علي البيضاء فزمر بقتل السوداء
وحمل البيضاء وصبّ عليها ماء، فأفاقت، فأطلقها وعاد إلى داره وجلس منفرداً، وإذا معه شابّ جميل، فذعر منه، فقال له: لا تخف أنا الحيّة التي أنجيتني، والأسود الذي قتلته غلامٌ لنا تمرّد علينا وقتل عدّة من أهل بيتي؛ وعرض عليه المال وعلم الطبّ، فقال: أمّا المال فلا حاجة لي به، وأمّا الطبّ فهو قبيح بالملك، ولكن إن كان لك بنت فزوّجنيها، فزوّجه على شرط أن لا يغيّر عليها شيئاً تعمله ومتى غيّر عليها فارقته، فأجابه إلى ذلك، فحملت منه فولدت له غلاماً فألقته في النّار، فجزع لذلك وسكت للشرط، ثمّ حملت منه فولدت جارية فألقتها إلى كلبة فأخذتها، فعظم ذلك عليه وصبر للشرط، ثمّ إنّه عصي عليه بعضُ أصحابه فجمع عسكره فسار إليه ليقاتله وهي معه، فانتهى إلي مفازة، فلمّا توسّطها رأى جميع ما معهم من الزاد يخلط بالتراب، وإذا الماء يُصبّ من القرب والمزاود، فأيقنوا بالهلاك وعلموا أنّه من فعال الجنّ عن أمر زوجته، فضاق ذرعاً عن حمل ذلك، فأتاها وجلس وأومأ إلى الأرض وقال: يا أرض صبرتُ لكِ على إحراق ابني وإطعام الكلبة إبنتي ثمّ أنتِ الآن قد فجعتنا بالزاد والماء وقد أشرفنا على الهلاك فقالت المرأة: لو صبرت لكان خيراً لك، وسأخبرك: إنّ عدوّك خدع وزيرك فجعل السمّ في الأزواد والمياه ليقتلك وأصحابك، فمر وزيرك ليشرب ما بقي من الماء ويأكل من الزاد، فأمره فامتنع، فقتله، ودلّتهم على الماء والميرة من قريب وقالت: أما ابنك فدفعته إلى حاضنة تربيّه وقد مات، وأمّا ابنتك فهي باقية، وإذا بجويرية قد خرجت من الأرض، وهي بلقيس، وفارقته امرأته وسار إلى عدوّ فظفر به

Most narrators explain, "Bilqis' mother is a female genie named Rawachach bintus-Sakar, daughter of king of the genies."
"The name of Bilqis mother Yalqamah bintu 'Amer ibn' Umair (jin)," said another narrator. Which caused the Bilqis' father to marry (mother Bilqis) woman of genie, because she felt very strong. He once said, "No human is able to keep up my strength." From then he proposed that female genie. And the woman's family received his proposal, until finally they accept him as their son in law. The narrators argued about the cause of the Bilqis' father meet with women genie, until finally propose and marry her (eventually became his wife):

   1. There are who narrated, "It is said that he sometimes moved his lips to the animal prey. Many times he frees his quarry in the form of deer-antelope which is actually genies. Therefore a king of the spirits that ever came out to meet him to give thanks (thank you), and to appoint him as a dear friend. Starting from there eventually the Bilqis' father applied the king of the spirits' daughter. The Genie's King accepting the applications to marry with his daughter on condition; he had handed over the coastal areas, ranging from Yabrin up 'Adan
   2. The other narrated, "One day Bilqis' father went out to hunt. Suddenly he saw two snakes, white and black,were fighting. The black almost won the battle. He squatted to kill a black snake. Then he took the white snake flush water. After the white snake awake from the unconsciousness and recovering, He released it. Then he returned homes. He sat alone in the house. Suddenly there was a handsome young man who appears at his side. Shock and fear were lost when the handsome young man said, " Do not be afraid. I'm the white snake you have saved. Black snake that has you kill is my slave that was wicked. He had killed a number of my family.

      "White snake that has been transformed to a handsome offered rewards in the form of wealth, and will teach how to cure diseases." Frankly I do not need wealth. While the science of medicine is not appropriate for a king like me. If you have a daughter girl, marry her to me!",he said. The handsome man who was the incarnation of the serpent complied the king request, married with a daughter, on condition must not be angry if his wife would do anything. When it comes to anger it must be divorced. The king who liked to hunt accepted these requirements. Finally she was really married to the snake' girl.

      The king was shocked by the act of his wife: entering her son who was a baby in the fire. Actually, he was furious at his wife. But he was silent because he thought the requirement that they had promised. The second pregnancy, gave birth to a girl baby. The king was surprised again by the act of his wife: give the baby girl in a dog. Baby girl bitten by a dog and taken away. Of course it made the king more angry at his wife. But he restrained himself, remembering the terms he'd said.

      One day a king's subordinate along with a number of troops entered to resist against the king. So the king was forced to gather the troops to fight him. At that time the king was accompanied by his wife. When the king has arrived in mid-wide open space, he suddenly saw the whole army supplies had been mixed with soil. And all the water supplies in large or small greba /container has shed until exhausted. All forces must be confident that they will soon starve or die of hunger. They realized that it must have been genies act on the orders of their king's wife. The King hated more his wife, but can not do much, because remember he ever promised requirements. A moment later the king went to his wife, then he pointed on earth. He said, "O earth (in fact mean 'O my wife)'.
      I have been patient because I love you; when male baby was burnt and when the baby girl was given to the dogs. But why all of sudden you bear to contaminate supplies of troops with the dust and water ?. And we almost died of hunger and thirst?. " The wife said, "If you are patient it would be better for you and for your troops. I will explain to you in order not to misunderstand. The enemy you have fought successfully seduced your vice who rebels you, until your vice poisoned the entire food and drinking water supplies, so that you and your troops die altogether. If you do not believe, order your deputy to consume the leftover water and food exist!. " After the king ordered his deputy to drink excess water and to eat leftover food exist and realized it would not. The king had killed his deputy who has been treason. She showed that soil contaminated water and food for troops had been poisoned from nearby.
      "Actually, your baby boy had just been handed to the nanny (the genie in the form of fire). Now he has died. The baby girl that I gave to the dog's nanny is still alive," said the king's wife. Suddenly a young teenage girl appeared from the ground. She was Bilqis who in the baby time was cared by (genie form) dogs. Soon then the Bilqis' mother file to divorce from the king since have been reprimanded. The king attacked and defeated his subordinates who had defected and rebelled. [Al-Kamil fit-Tarikh 1 / 76].

      Ibnu Katsir wrote:


      "قلت: بل هو منكر غريب جدًا، ولعله من أوهام عطاء بن السائب على ابن عباس، والله أعلم والأقرب في مثل هذه السياقات أنها متلقاة عن أهل الكتاب، مما يوجد في صحفهم، كروايات كعب ووهب -سامحهما الله تعالى -فيما نقلاه إلى هذه الأمة من أخبار بني إسرائيل، من الأوابد والغرائب والعجائب، مما كان وما لم يكن، ومما حرف وبدل ونسخ. وقد أغنانا الله، سبحانه، عن ذلك بما هو أصح منه وأنفع وأوضح وأبلغ، ولله الحمد والمنة –

      I'm saying, 'This hadith is very unjust even once. Perhaps this includes Atho's narrations which "wahmun" (doubts the truth) from Ibn' Abbas. Wallaahu a'lam. Which is close to the truth in commenting that this kind of history comes from the Book Scriptures, originally was from their books. This is similar to narrations Ka'eb and Waheb . Unfortunately if someone as powerful as them both convey a history of Bani Isra'il on this people. Narrations are wild, strange and weird. May God erase their history together. History certainly has changed and copied. Actually, Allah The Most Holy has given us a story more saheeh, clearer and more detail: namely the Qur'an. And all praise and grace belongs to Allah. "[Ibn Kathir 6 / 197].

      It is possible that Ibn Kathir criticized this history because he's intellectual. How may a human associated with a genie could decent offspring?. Whereas nature and chromosomes are different. Here the author explains that just because the Bilqis father su'udz-dzan at his mother then result in divorce. And it so much happens around us. Namely, that su'udz-dzan can ruin the good that should be eternal.
2  Islam / Inspirational Islamic Stories / A Hundred Years Asleep on: July 20, 2010, 12:58:12 PM
Allah Generate Dead and Destroyed Human's Body
Resources: http://www.ldii-sidoarjo.org/2010/03/hundred-years-asleep.html
On a day when 'Ezra into his garden lush with trees and lush green leaves the fruit. His heart was enchanted by the beauty of the landscape garden. He also picked some fruit to take home. After that she went home with the donkey while enjoying the natural beauty of its surroundings. He did not realize that the donkey he was riding has lost road. After all this time he realized that he had been in an unknown area and also have been far from the village where she lived.

'Ezra watched the alien round area. "Hmm .. This place is like a former village that perished due to a devastating war ... "he thought.
At some point the village looked rubble with traces of human bodies were lying everywhere. He stepped down from his donkey carrying two baskets of fruit. He tethered the donkey to a tree, then he sat back on the wall of a house that had collapsed. He looked at the human corpses that have started to decompose it. His mind started racing,
"Hmm .. How do people dead and destroyed it on the Day of Judgement is turned on again by Allah?"

He kept thinking about it until fall asleep from exhaustion.
'Ezra continued to sleep until the day in and day out, month turned into months and years change without any waking in second. One hundred years have passed already, while the 'Ezra stayed asleep with the bodies that have been destroyed together with the land.

Then Allah reconstruct Ezra's flesh and bones that had been destroyed and blown his soul. At the same moment 'Ezra woke up and stood looking for his donkey and fruit in a basket.
Not long afterwards, some angels came down as he asked, "Do you know O 'Ezra how long you sleep?"
Without thinking 'Ezra said, "I slept all day or maybe half a day."

Then the angel had said to him, "O 'Ezra, you've been asleep for a hundred years. This is where you lie down, replaced the rain and hot sun, sometimes even blown storm. In such a long period, the fruits keep good condition. But let's see the donkey, he's already been destroyed eaten by the earth . "
With amazement, he alternately looked at the fruit that is fresh and his donkey was crushed out of shape.

The angel went on his words, "Look and see carefully. Thus the power of Allah. Allah can revive the dead and returning the bodies that have been devastated. With that easy too God will raise all the dead humans to be checked and everything he would has done will be judged in the hereafter. This is shown by Allah to you so that you and other humans do not hesitate any more about what is explained by Allah about life in the hereafter. "

Suddenly the donkey which had broken loose from that seen gathered flesh and bones, and eventually become like the old days, life as before death. So 'Ezra said, "Now I'm increasingly convinced that God hath power over all things."

Then 'Ezra came over his donkey and rode it home to his former house. But he was having trouble finding their way home. Roads that once he had spent a lot of change. He tried to remember what he had seen a hundred years ago. After a variety of difficulties, he finally reached his home. He found his home was shattered, most of the walls of his house had collapsed. He began hesitantly, "Is this really my house once .." Suddenly the 'Ezra saw there was an old woman hobbled. Both eyes are blind, so he had to walk using a cane fumble. Then 'Ezra asked, "Excuse me, mam.. Whose house is this?"

The old woman replied. "This is Ezra's home, but he was long gone and no longer heard the news story. After all everyone had forgotten him."
"Mom .. I'm Ezra, "explained 'Ezra." I have been turned off by Allah a hundred years ago. Now I've revived by God. "

The old woman was shocked as if not believing, then she said, 'Ezra is one of the most pious, his prayer is always answered by Allah and has a lot of merit in treating people who are sick "she continued again," I was the Ezra's waitress, my body was old and weak, my eyes had been blind since it is always crying memorizing 'Ezra. Even if you were 'Ezra then try to pray to Allah that my eyes can see the light and the master again."

Ezra had lifted his hands toward heaven and prayed to Allah. Suddenly the old woman both eyes opened and can see lighter again. His body tha was old and weak came back strong as if to be young again. After staring at the face of 'Ezra he said, "Yes, you are the master 'Ezra. I still remember."

News about the return of 'Ezra who disappeared after a hundred years was not only shocked the people of Bani Israel, but there are also questionable and did not believe him. However the news attract everyone's attention when he was alive. Therefore they wanted to test the truth of 'Ezra. Then came his own biological child as she asked, "I still remember that my father had a sign on his back. Try to check the signs." If there is, he is indeed 'Ezra. "

The sign exists on the 'Ezra, and some of them began to believe. But some still want more tangible proof, then they said to 'Ezra, "That since the invasion of Nebuchadnezzar in Children of Israel since the soldiers burned the sacred books of the Torah, that no one of the Israelites else who memorized the Torah, except' Ezra only. If it's true you are' Ezra, try to state the content of the right Torah."

'Ezra read the contents the Torah one by one fluently and smooth and no one mistake even slightly. Listen to it they believe that it is true 'Ezra. At that time, all nations, the Israelites would have believed that he was' Ezra who was dead and revived by Allah. Many of them were shaking hands and kissing the hand of 'Ezra and ask for advices. But some stupid Jews consider 'Ezra as a child of Allah. Glory to Allah does not have a son like 'Ezra or even Jesus for all His creatures merely belong to Him. [Source: QS. Al Baqarah: 259]

Resources: http://www.ldii-sidoarjo.org
In the woman study this month, it's advised again  ijtihad of LDII  (Lembaga Dakwah Islam Indonesia) ulema about the way of dressing for women and teenage girls. The ijtihad is an affirmation and application of Islamic rules that have been existing and is intended to revive religious rule about how to properly Muslimah dress  among LDII women and girls pilgrims.

Nowadays many Muslim fashions and dressed in attractive manner offered, but not all of them are in accordance with the rules of Allah and the Messenger as stated in Al Quran and Al Hadith. For woman Muslim, dressing is not just follow the fashion or trends prevailing in the society or only a culture or habit as Muslimah dress.  However the way of dressing is a part of worship performing Allah and the Prophet SAW orders that contain sanctions later in hereafter.

Muslim women dress properly, apart from a form of faith and piety to Allah woman can also prevent violation and disobedience as prominent women body will tend to attract the attention of opposite sex . By closing entire women genital, the woman would be more respected and maintained her honor. For that, LDII woman pilgrims are expected to understand the rules of Allah & The Prophet SAW and the ijtihad of ulemas as well about the way of properly dressed according to religious rules in order not to wrongly chose Muslim dresses that actually deviate from the religious provisions.

In accordance with the guidance of Allah and Rasulullah SAW in Quran & Hadith, LDII ulemas outline the proper way of woman and girls dress as follows:

1. Muslim women's clothing must cover all the woman's genital well, neatly and politely.
In principle, all parts of the woman body are genital except face  and palms. Clothes can continuously from the top to cover the ankles as the long dress . Or upper garment until under knee and bottom apparel breeches a skirt or culottes loose, not tight to cover the ankles.
وَقُل لِّلْمُؤْمِنَاتِ يَغْضُضْنَ مِنْ أَبْصَارِهِنَّ وَيَحْفَظْنَ فُرُوجَهُنَّ وَلَا يُبْدِينَ زِينَتَهُنَّ إِلَّا مَا ظَهَرَ مِنْهَا وَلْيَضْرِبْنَ بِخُمُرِهِنَّ عَلَى جُيُوبِهِنَّ وَلَا يُبْدِينَ زِينَتَهُنَّ إِلَّا لِبُعُولَتِهِنَّ أَوْ آبَائِهِنَّ أَوْ آبَاء بُعُولَتِهِنَّ أَوْ أَبْنَائِهِنَّ أَوْ أَبْنَاء بُعُولَتِهِنَّ أَوْ إِخْوَانِهِنَّ أَوْ بَنِي إِخْوَانِهِنَّ أَوْ بَنِي أَخَوَاتِهِنَّ أَوْ نِسَائِهِنَّ أَوْ مَا مَلَكَتْ أَيْمَانُهُنَّ أَوِ التَّابِعِينَ غَيْرِ أُوْلِي الْإِرْبَةِ مِنَ الرِّجَالِ أَوِ الطِّفْلِ الَّذِينَ لَمْ يَظْهَرُوا عَلَى عَوْرَاتِ النِّسَاء وَلَا يَضْرِبْنَ بِأَرْجُلِهِنَّ لِيُعْلَمَ مَا يُخْفِينَ مِن زِينَتِهِنَّ وَتُوبُوا إِلَى اللَّهِ جَمِيعًا أَيُّهَا الْمُؤْمِنُونَ لَعَلَّكُمْ تُفْلِحُونَ * سورة النور ٣١
God The Most High said, "And let not their adornment except what appeared from her. Quran surah Annur verse 31
Al Quran Surat Annur ayat 31
وقال الأعمش عن سعيد بن جبير عن ابن عباس : وَلاَ يُبْذينَ زٍينَتَهُنَّ إِلاَّ ماَ ظَهَرَ مِنْهَا قال : وَجْهَهَا وَكَفَيْهَا وَالْخَاتَمَ * تفسير ابن كثير
'Amas told from Said ibn Jabbar from Ibn Abbas, "Do they (the women) not to show their jewelry except what appears thereof", Abbas said, "His face and his palms and the ring."
Tafseer Ibnu Kathir
عَنْ عَائِشَةَ رَضِي الله عَنْهَا أنَّ أَسْمَأْ بِنْتَ أَبِي بَكرٍ دَخَلَتْ عَلَى رَسُولِ الله ...وَعَلَيْهَا ثِيَابٌ رِقَقٌ فَأَعْرَضَ عَنْهَا رَسُولِ الله صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ وَقَالَ يَا أَسْمَاءُ إِنَّ الْمَرأَةَ إِذَا بَلَغَتْ الْمَحِيْضَ لَمْ تَصْلُحْ أَنْ يُرَى مِنْهَا إِلّا هَذَا وَ هَذَا وَأَشَارَ إِلَى وَجْهِهِ وَكَفَّيْهِ’ قَالَ ابو داود هذا مرسل خالد بن دُريك لم يدرك عَائِشَةَ رَضِي الله عَنْهَا* رواه ابو داود
From 'Aisah quoted' Riders, "Verily, Asma 'binti Abi Bakr entered the Prophet and she (Asma') wearing thin clothes, the Prophet turned away from her and said: 'O Asma', when in fact she had come adult she is inappropriate (not should) show from her (her limbs), except this and this and the Prophet give gesture on the face and palms. Explanation: Although this hadith is Mursal but the content (the contents of the hadith) is Shohih accordance with understanding of Companions Ibn 'Abaas and in accordance with the postulates of other, more Shohih that the two palms and face may be seen.
إِنَّ ابْنَ عَبّاسٍ أَخْبَرَهُ أَنّ إِمْرَأَةً مِنْ خَثْعَمَ اِسْتَفَتْ عَلَى رَسُولِ الله ...فِي حَجَّةِ الْوَدَاعِ والْفَضْلُ بْنُ عَبَّاسٍ رَديِفُ رَسُولِ الله صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ فَقَلَتْ يَا رَسُولِ الله إْنَّ فَرِيْضَةَ اللهِ فِي الْحَجِّ عَلَى عِبَادِهِ أَدْرَكَتْ أَبِي شَيْخًا كَبِيْرًا لاَ يَشْتَوِي عَلَى الرَّاحِلَةٍ فَهَلْ يَقْضَيْ عَنْهُ أَنْ أَحُخَّ عَنْهُ؟ فَقَالَ لَهَا رَسُولِ الله صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ نَعَمْ فَأخَدَ الفَضْلُ بْنُ عَبَسٍ يَلْتَفِتُ إِلَيْهَا وَكَانَتِ امْرَأَةً حَسْنَاءَ وَأَخَدَ رَسُولِ الله صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ الْفَضْلُ فَحَوَّلَ وَجْهَهُ مِنَ الشِّقِّ الآْخضرِ* رواه النسائي واللفظ له والبخاري ومسلم
Indeed Ibn 'Abas gave word to Sulaiman Bin Yasar that there was a woman from the Khotsama area asked for a fatwa to Rasulullahi SAW at the time of the Farewell Hajj (at that time Prophet gave a lift for Fadil Ibn' Abaas), O Messenger of God indeed the command to his servant about pilgrims fell to my father who has elderly who can not ride a vehicle, whether I should represent my father the hajj? Then the Prophet replied, "YES". So Fadhil bin 'Abaas saw the woman and she was beautiful. Then the Prophet turned his face away Fadhil bun 'Abaas in the other direction.

Clothes are loose, not tight (press body) and does not seem the contours of her body.
2. Veil hung close the neck, shoulders and chest while his sleeves to the wrist.
