5 Keheranan Imam Ali

18 Feb

Lima kalimat Imam Ali bin Abithalib (as) berikut ini sangat menarik dan menyetrum pembacanya:

  • Aku heran pada kesombongan orang yang arogan dan hina; kemarin ia hanya setetes sperma dan besok ia akan berubah menjadi bangkai.
  • Aku heran pada orang yang menyaksikan alam semesta yang diciptakan Allah dan meragukan Keberadaan (Eksistensi)-Nya.
  • Aku heran pada orang yang melihat orang-orang mati di sekitarnya, tapi tetap melupakan akhir hidupnya sendiri.
  • Aku heran melihat orang yang memahami kecanggihan penciptaan secara genetik dan menolak untuk menerima bahwa ia akan dikembalikan lagi kelak di kehidupan baru.
  • Aku heran pada orang yang berjuang sedemikian keras untuk menghiasi dan agar merasa nyaman tinggal di habitat sementara (yang mortal, akan mati) dan sama sekali melupakan kampung abadinya.

 

Berikut ini bahasa Inggrisnya:

I wonder at the mentality of a miser, fearing poverty he takes to stinginess and thus hastily pushes himself head- long into a state of want and destitution, he madly desires plenty and ease, but throws it away without understanding. In this world he, of his own free will, leads the life of a a beggar and in the next world he will have to submit an account like the rich.

I wonder at the arrogance of a haughty and vain person. Yesterday he was only a drop of semen and tomorrow he will turn into a corpse. I wonder at the man who observes the Universe created by Allah and doubts His Being and Existence. I wonder at the man who sees people dying around him and yet he has forgotten his end. I wonder at the man who understands the marvel of genesis of creation and refuses to accept that he will be brought back to life again. I wonder at the man who takes great pains to decorate and to make comfortable this mortal habitat and totally forgets his permanent abode.
