Between Hope and Fear (Part 2)

It is mentioned in the hadith, that when Rasulullah SAW finished reading this verse Allah SWT answered, na’am, yes. This means that everything has been granted by Allah SWT, including people who make mistakes because they forget it will not be punished. Yet we all often forget. Forget Allah’s command. Forget to dhikr or remember Allah. Lha wong, when we pray, our minds and hearts forget Allah. However, we have good news, that mistakes that occur due to forgetfulness or mistakes, God willing, will be forgiven, so the perpetrators will not be punished.

According to Imam Ghozali, we must not only rely on the roja side. Must be accompanied by khauf. So between the feelings of roja and khauf must be balanced. Between hope and fear. Don’t use verses about roja and then we recite while. If we are too excited because of our roja will be complacent. Proud of our deeds or belittle our mistakes. Don’t let it be because of believing in Allah SWT, Most Forgiving and Forgiving that we just leave Allah’s prohibitions at will. Not performing prayers. Not practicing obedience.

But on the other hand, if we are too khouf, we will become hopeless people and have prejudice against Allah. As if everything is wrong and will be punished by God. This is not allowed. Because the mercy of Allah SWT is far greater than his wrath.
