Alhamdulillah we are born as Moslem. Our children are born in our hands, Moslem families, and I know that CIC’s parents are selected parents, you are outstanding Moslems and are advanced of other parents in Malaysia generally. I am proud of you and I am very grateful to have families like you supporting CIC’s mission and vision to come true.
However I like to advise myself and you too as CIC’s families, to help ourselves and our families to reach to the level of Mokmeen because being Moslem is not enough for we will be regretful in the hereafter.
There are more criterias to be a Mokmeen. I cannot discuss in details about those criterias, and for us to understand about it, needs time and want, but as a brief, it means about real belief.
Ashabul Kahfi For Example, they are the Mokmineen mentioned in the Quran. How many of us will possess such criteria of Ashabul Kahfiwhenever we encounter the test from Allah? If we do not have real belief, we cannot reach the level of these people of Ashabul Kahfi.
As far as I know, Ashabul Kahfi are not the Prophets but just seven men who had the belief in Tawheed while their society did not.
Many more messages in Surah Al Kahfi that we must learn, like the stories of Khidr and Zul Qarnain. We are told that Surah Al Kahfi has priviledges. But how many of us really understand about the messages in it?
My point is to emphasize that we parents have to help ourselves and families to reach to the Level Of Mokmineen before death comes to us and to reach that, the path is not easy. How we have to struggle for physical attainment, the Struggle For Our Iman is even more difficult.
Remember, Allah Will Not Only Test the previous generations like Ashabul Kahfi but Allah Will Test Us also. He will test our belief the same he test the past generation so that in the Hereafter we will stand in front of Him with equal chance!
Therefore, we have to continue to seek knowledge, what we had learnt in schools, universities, mosques are not enough to be a Mokmeen. Seek Knowledge, Ikhlas and being Humble, only then, we are on our way to become Mokmeen. Being ikhlas and humble is essential because wal iya zubillah we do not want to be like Iblis who is proud of himself and thinks that he is better than Adam and because of that pride, he is kufur, did not obey Allah to prostrate before Adam.
People say, “Some Love Lasts A Lifetime, True Love Lasts Forever”. Let us give to our families the gift that is not only lasts a lifetime but lasts forever, give the gift of Iman and we can leave the rest to Allah!
At CIC, we tried to do so many things to give the Gifts That Last Forever for our children. Our team from the HQ to the centres, all hands in hands had given a lot of efforts to make our mission and vision successful. I am grateful to have them around me. We spent a lot in the trainings, hoping that the crews will give back to the children. Some crews remain, some leave for whatever reason, we know that the trainings we give will last forever and will help to create better society in the future.
CIC’s Blossom Project is one of our efforts to give the Gifts That Last Forever to the children. We did Hi-Tea And the Blossom Walk, and many more activities.
Again I am grateful to have all of you, the CIC’s families who are very attentive, I hope all of you will be with us to promote and create awareness to the people to stop the child abuse and give more rights to the children including the right to have better education.
