FATTABIOUNI:RENEW INTENTION TO ITTIBA' THE SUNNAH.

Assalamualaikum WBT

FATTABIOUNI | FOLLOW PROPHET MUHAMMAD (PBUH) TRADITIONS).


"Qul in kuntum tuhibbuna Allaha faittabiouni yuhbibkumu Allahu wayaghfir lakum tzunubakum waAllahu ghafurur rahim. [ali-Imran:31]"

"Say (o Muhammad): If you love Allah, then follow me, Allah will love you and forgive you your faults, and Allah is Forgiving, Merciful."

---------------oooooooo--------------

Today, any observer into the state of the Ummah will find a large vacuum between them and their prophet ( Muhamad pbuh) whether in understanding, following (ittiba') or even his love... they have become distant from his traditions and guidance and that is one of the main reasons for their defeat (into ma'siah and munkar)and weakness.

The "Fattabiouni" projects is intended to contribute towards on filling this vacuum and bring people closer to the Prophetic Tradition (as-Sunnah) in apositive and simple way which covers all aspects of their daily life.


Their Mission

To revive and introduce the as-Sunnah and explain how they can be applied in a format that is relevant to our day and age using the latest means and tools available.


Their Main Objectives

Delivering the Prophetic Tradition in a manner that increases the love and glorification of the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) in peoples hearts and minds.

Encourage people to adopt the Prophetic Traditions while highlighting their benefit in both this world and the afterlife.

Presenting the as-Sunnah in a manner that will allow every Muslim to participate in the spread of the Prophetic Traditions.

Working towards achieving Social Responsibility through the spread and application of the Prophetic Tradition.


Editorial Views

This project remind us about previous campaign by Muslims in British/Europe when they introduce Innovative Campaign: Inspired by Muhammad (pbuh) to the Britons.

The Inspired by Muhammad campaign is designed to improve the public understanding of Islam and Muslims. It showcases Britons demonstrating how Muhammad inspires them to contribute to society, with a focus on women’s rights, social justice and the environment.

They tryied to approach the Non-Muslim community why they must follow the Prophetic Teaching as it is the only solution to end of the crisis of moral that are taking place in Western Society.

That is why IIUM Journalism Club posting this entry as we have to create a phenomenon in IIUM especially and Malaysia at large by doing the similar way to create the Bee'ah Sholehah (Good Environment) to avoid any resistance from outside to mash up the society with something immoral.


ISLAH (Reforming the mind and soul)

The word Islah (reform) must be in the heart of people who wanna change the society with the advantage of NEW MEDIA. 

Before that, we need the touch of Tarbeeyah (education) to give some actual picture of Islam as it will guide the Musleh (the preacher/reformer) to invite other people into goodness.

In New media, we have youtube, Facebook, Blogspot-Wordpress, twitter and etc. It is now we as a reformist using these various opportunity and then start our next step to introduce the way of Islam in the heart of the community as well as the leaders.

We not need to use such a CONTROVERSIAL way to create the awareness, but need a creative way by exampling the Fattabiouni Project and taking them as a benchmark to create a better Ummah.

We don't need extreme 'Salafi' , fanatic 'Sufism', extreme 'Shiites' and same ideas goes to Liberal Muslim to make such a controversial discussion which will confuse our brothers and sisters in to learn about Islam. 


Moderation

Enough just to maintain our Muslim status as Moderate Muslim rather than become Ghulluw (extremist) by comparing which one of them is the righteous one. Al-Qur'an guide us with:

"wa kazaalika ja'alnaakum ummatan wa satan litakoonoo shuhadaa'a 'alannasi, wayakuna ar-rasulu 'aalaykum shahida. Wama ja'alna alqiblata allati kunta 'alayha illa lina'alama man yattabiou ar-rasoola mimman yanqalibu 'ala 'aqibayhi. Wain kanat lakabiratan illa 'ala allatziena hada Allahu wama kana Allahu liyudee'a imanakum inna Allaha binnasi laraufun rahim" [al-Baqarah:143]

"Thus, have We made of you an Ummat justly balanced, that ye might be witnesses over the nations, and the Messenger a witness over yourselves; and We appointed the Qibla to which thou wast used, only to test those who followed the Messenger from those who would turn on their heels (From the Faith). Indeed it was (A change) momentous, except to those guided by Allah. And never would Allah Make your faith of no effect. For Allah is to all people Most surely full of kindness, Most Merciful."

From the above ayah, we just need to be 'ummatan wasatha' (moderation in living) by following as-Sunnah ar-Rasul SAW, obey Allah's message to us and not to be out from the scholars' consensus.

Moreover, Allah already give us the main point on that verse-the Qiblah as it shows us the symbol of unity thus we need to throw away all the prejudices out of our mind. This is actually the way of Salaf as-sholeh.

In the end as today is Awal Muharram, where Muslims trying to renew their intention to change from bad to good, lets review again and practice as the 31st verse of ali-Imran stated to us. May Allah bless us with His Guidance and His Blessing.



Allahua'alam
