Ilmu: Sedekah & Riba'
Surah Al-Baqarah; ayat 272 ~ 280
- Sedekah ( or infaq in Arabic) is very good
a) sedekah in its way could cleanse up the sins that we have committed
b) if we want our doa 'dimakbulkan' give out sedekah a lot
c) if we feel our lives have a lot of misfortune, give out sedekah, so maybe we could be lucky
d) sedekah is not limited to fakir or orphans only, we should give sedekah to those people who are in need (example: he might be look ok at the appearance but has no money to eat)
e) do not sedekah things that we ourselves do not want, give those that we want (i.e money)
- riba' is very bad
b) there are 70 types of riba' ( i need to find these details later)
c) riba' is the 3rd greatest sin (1st syirik 2nd murder those that should not be killed)
d) an example of riba':-
Ms A: I bought this ring at 500 dirham, but I need money now, so I sell it to you at 200 dirham
Ms B: Okey I buy at 200 dirham
-> it is riba' because A forced B to get the money desperately; if A did not mention the price and the desperate need for money it will not be riba'
e) kids who are feed with hasil from riba' will not be a good person
From what I understand; riba' is when the seller desperately need the money and force the value to the customer (but I have to study more to further understand the concept of riba')
Ayat 281 Surah al-Baqarah
"Dan peliharalah diri kamu (daripada huru hara hari kiamat) yang padanya kamu akan dikembalikan kepada Allah. Kemudian akan disempurnakan balasan setiap orang menurut apa yang telah diusahakannya, sedangkan mereka tidak akan dianiaya (dikurangkan balasannya sedikit pun)."
Ayat diatas merupakan ayat terakhir yang diwahyukan oleh Allah s.w.t kepada Nabi Muhammad S.A.W yakni 9 hari sebelum kewafatan baginda. Hayatilah makna di sebaliknya, sungguh menginsafkan.
