sudah terprogram, rapi, tersusun, terencana tapi unpredictable dan yang pasti Allah
mempercayakan prosesi ini pada sosok yang tepat "IZROIL", malaikat yang saklek dengan
aturan tanpa kompromi dan tawar menawar.
Pokoknya "Yang pernah hidup
di dunia, pasti akan mati tepat pada jadwal yang sudah ada di server utama "LAUHIL
MAHFUDZ"". Perlu diketahui kawan tinta Allah telah kering yang sudah JADI lama sekali
bahkan sebelum Allah menciptakan langit dan bumi.
Peraturan tentang kematian
1. Datang pada sesuatu yang pernah hidup
SWT berfirman : "Kullu Nafsin Dzaaiqotul Maut" ( 3 : 185 )
berjiwa akan merasakan mati
Tenang saja kawan ... gak usah merinding, takut,
atau ngeri. Biasa sajalah ... Masih bernafas kan.. ?? ( alhamdulillah dulu dong .. :) )
2. Datangnya sewaktu-waktu
Allah SWT berfirman "Ainama
takuunu Yud'riikumul mautu Walau kuntum fii Burujim Musyayyadah" ( 4 : 78 )
mana saja kamu berada, kematian akan mendapatkan kamu, kendatipun kamu di dalam benteng yang
tinggi lagi kokoh.
Sayangnya malaikat Izroil bukan mbah Google yang setia
menjawab setiap pertanyaan kita. Malaikat Izroil juga gak punya operator hotline yang bisa
menjawab telpon kita setiap saat kita butuhkan.
Makanya manusia secerdas Einstein aja
gak tahu kapan ajalnya. Belum ada dan saya jamin gak bakalan ada sebuah penemuan manusia yang
bisa nemuin "Kalkulator usia" ... Alat untuk menghitung ajal manusia.
Dan sayangnya juga malaikat Izroil juga tetap bisa melakukan tugasnya dimanapun dengan cara
Gak butuh "Death note",
Gak terpengaruh harga BBM yang
Gak bisa KO sama Bodyguard sekuat apapun
Gak ada yang bisa kucing-
kucingan sama malaikat yang satu ini kayak di film "Christmas Caroline".
ada yang bisa diajak tukeran,
Kalo waktunya datang gak bisa nawar, bahkan Koruptor
selicik apapun gak bisa melobi usianya sendiri.
3. Kematian bukanlah akhir
Jangan percaya kalo ada yang bilang "Hidup cuma sekali".
Yang bener "Mati itu cuma sekali, kalo hidup berkali-kali, sebelum hidup ini kan udah
pernah hidup di alam arwah sama alam kandungan, bahkan abis mati kita idup lagi". (
Bukaan, bukan reinkarnasi macam kerasakti ato Avatar gitu ... Maksudnya dibangkitkan lagi untuk
menerima rapor di Hari Kebangkitan Internasional trus kita hidup deh di akhirat )
Allah SWT berfirman : Fiiha tahyauna wa fiiha tamuutuuna wa fiiha tukhrojuun ( 7 : 25 )
"Disanalah ( Bumi ) kalian dihidupkan, disanalah kalian dimatikan, dan disanalah
4. Sudah ada jadwalnya
jadwalnya udah dateng, Malaikat Izroil pasti datang. Gak bakalan ada dialog macam iklan rokok
"Wani piro?" ( Kecuali dulu nabi Musa AS ).
"Wa maa kaana
linafsin an tamuuta illa biidznillahi kitaaban muajjala" ( 3 : 145 )
yang hidup kecuali dengan idzin Allah sebagai ketetapan yang telah ditentukan waktunya.
Hehe tenang saja kawan .... kalau belum waktunya gak akan datang kok Malaikat
Izroilnya. Walopun misalnya ada orang yang udah pengen mati, trus manggil manggil malaikat
Izroil, sms, bbm, mensen, ngewall hehe ( emang malaikat Izroil punya hp).
5. Ada saat dimana Kematian akan mati
Akan tiba saat dimana Allah akan
memensiunkan Izroil yakni ketika Kematian telah mati.
Dalam Kitabu Sifati
jannah wannar diterangkan bahwa suatu hari diakhirat nanti penduduk surga dan penduduk neraka
harus menghentikan aktivitasnya, Allah akan memberi pengumuman pada seluruh penduduk akhirat.
Penduduk surga khawatir, jika kehidupan nikmatnya disurga akan berakhir. Penduduk Neraka
bahagia, karena mungkin siksaannya akan berakhir. Kemudian Allah memberi pengumuman bahwa
kematian telah diserupakan dengan kambing, dan pada hari itu kematian akan disembelih mati.
Semenjak saat itu, tak ada lagi kefanaan, semua hidup selamanya. Yang di neraka disiksa
selamanya tanpa terhenti waktu. Yang di surga nikmat kekal selamanya.
Menjadi Peringatan Buat Orang iman
Kalo Kholifah Umar pernah ngendikan,
"Kafaa bil mauti Mauidzoh", Cukuplah kematian menjadi peringatan.
Mau apa lagi sih ... Pada akhirnya kan manusia cuma satu aja bisanya ... "menuhin kuota
umurnya dengan ngisi buku catatan amal"
Nah, pertanyaannya ... sampai
detik ini, sampai hembusan nafas yang ini, catatan mana yang paling banyak terisi ...

Maulana(galipat) Matinya Sang Kematian
Hockey is not exactly known as a city game, but played on roller skates, it once held sway as the sport of choice in many New York neighborhoods.
“City kids had no rinks, no ice, but they would do anything to play hockey,” said Edward Moffett, former director of the Long Island City Y.M.C.A. Roller Hockey League, in Queens, whose games were played in city playgrounds going back to the 1940s.
From the 1960s through the 1980s, the league had more than 60 teams, he said. Players included the Mullen brothers of Hell’s Kitchen and Dan Dorion of Astoria, Queens, who would later play on ice for the National Hockey League.
One street legend from the heyday of New York roller hockey was Craig Allen, who lived in the Woodside Houses projects and became one of the city’s hardest hitters and top scorers.
“Craig was a warrior, one of the best roller hockey players in the city in the ’70s,” said Dave Garmendia, 60, a retired New York police officer who grew up playing with Mr. Allen. “His teammates loved him and his opponents feared him.”
Young Craig took up hockey on the streets of Queens in the 1960s, playing pickup games between sewer covers, wearing steel-wheeled skates clamped onto school shoes and using a roll of electrical tape as the puck.
His skill and ferocity drew attention, Mr. Garmendia said, but so did his skin color. He was black, in a sport made up almost entirely by white players.
“Roller hockey was a white kid’s game, plain and simple, but Craig broke the color barrier,” Mr. Garmendia said. “We used to say Craig did more for race relations than the N.A.A.C.P.”
Mr. Allen went on to coach and referee roller hockey in New York before moving several years ago to South Carolina. But he continued to organize an annual alumni game at Dutch Kills Playground in Long Island City, the same site that held the local championship games.
The reunion this year was on Saturday, but Mr. Allen never made it. On April 26, just before boarding the bus to New York, he died of an asthma attack at age 61.
Word of his death spread rapidly among hundreds of his old hockey colleagues who resolved to continue with the event, now renamed the Craig Allen Memorial Roller Hockey Reunion.
The turnout on Saturday was the largest ever, with players pulling on their old equipment, choosing sides and taking once again to the rink of cracked blacktop with faded lines and circles. They wore no helmets, although one player wore a fedora.
Another, Vinnie Juliano, 77, of Long Island City, wore his hearing aids, along with his 50-year-old taped-up quads, or four-wheeled skates with a leather boot. Many players here never converted to in-line skates, and neither did Mr. Allen, whose photograph appeared on a poster hanging behind the players’ bench.
“I’m seeing people walking by wondering why all these rusty, grizzly old guys are here playing hockey,” one player, Tommy Dominguez, said. “We’re here for Craig, and let me tell you, these old guys still play hard.”
Everyone seemed to have a Craig Allen story, from his earliest teams at Public School 151 to the Bryant Rangers, the Woodside Wings, the Woodside Blues and more.
Mr. Allen, who became a yellow-cab driver, was always recruiting new talent. He gained the nickname Cabby for his habit of stopping at playgrounds all over the city to scout players.
Teams were organized around neighborhoods and churches, and often sponsored by local bars. Mr. Allen, for one, played for bars, including Garry Owen’s and on the Fiddler’s Green Jokers team in Inwood, Manhattan.
Play was tough and fights were frequent.
“We were basically street gangs on skates,” said Steve Rogg, 56, a mail clerk who grew up in Jackson Heights, Queens, and who on Saturday wore his Riedell Classic quads from 1972. “If another team caught up with you the night before a game, they tossed you a beating so you couldn’t play the next day.”
Mr. Garmendia said Mr. Allen’s skin color provoked many fights.
“When we’d go to some ignorant neighborhoods, a lot of players would use slurs,” Mr. Garmendia said, recalling a game in Ozone Park, Queens, where local fans parked motorcycles in a lineup next to the blacktop and taunted Mr. Allen. Mr. Garmendia said he checked a player into the motorcycles, “and the bikes went down like dominoes, which started a serious brawl.”
A group of fans at a game in Brooklyn once stuck a pole through the rink fence as Mr. Allen skated by and broke his jaw, Mr. Garmendia said, adding that carloads of reinforcements soon arrived to defend Mr. Allen.
And at another racially incited brawl, the police responded with six patrol cars and a helicopter.
Before play began on Saturday, the players gathered at center rink to honor Mr. Allen. Billy Barnwell, 59, of Woodside, recalled once how an all-white, all-star squad snubbed Mr. Allen by playing him third string. He scored seven goals in the first game and made first string immediately.
“He’d always hear racial stuff before the game, and I’d ask him, ‘How do you put up with that?’” Mr. Barnwell recalled. “Craig would say, ‘We’ll take care of it,’ and by the end of the game, he’d win guys over. They’d say, ‘This guy’s good.’” Tribute for a Roller Hockey Warrior
