“Though we know death is certain, we have not prepared ourselves for it. Though we know paradise is definite, we have not worked for it. Though we know the hell fire is sure, we have not feared it. So why are you delighted? What are you waiting for? Death is the first visitor from the Almighty bringing good or evil tidings… get closer to your Lord.”4 ~Hamid al-Qasyrasi (rahimahullah)

THE BALANCE FACTOR


ALLAH said in the Holy Quran (And of everything We have created pairs, that you may remember. Ad-Dhariyat: 49). Then the Holy Quran give example from the simplest to the complex, there is day and night, heaven and earth, men and women, man's rights and woman's rights, husband's right and wife's rights, parent's rights and child's rights. Pairs, yin yang, push pull.

Islam mean peace. Peace achieved when there is balance. The balance requires the pairs mutually benefit each other. A wife observes husband's rights and a husband observes wife's rights. A child observes parent's rights and parents observe child's rights. There is no one sided coin, both are outlined and prescribed in Islam.

At the other end of peace is chaos. Chaos emerge when the other side is ignored. We took that are in favor of us and left that are not. A husband expects his wife to observe his right but ignored his wife's rights. A parent ask an Ustaz of his rights to scold his child but never ask what of his child's rights. Wife rebels, children run away from home, rebelious.

When everything are one sided the pairs are broken, no pairs no balance, no balance no peace, no peace not Islam (not Islamic).
