Senior General Qalbu

For long that this heart tyrannically ruled by Nafsu, the ever wanting desire. Now, Ramadhan Boot Camp is back to upgrade Officer Qalbu to Senior general Qalbu!

Oh what a hot day it is in the island of Borneo. Thirsty, if only, if only I could have a sip of ice cold coconut juice. Stomach is growling, hunger pang sets in while the smell of Ikan bakar and ayam Bakar roaming the air of Senadin and Seberkas. While other comrades stood tough, some appear to be rolling on the ground resisting temptations of eating and drinking. Some numbing the pain with a long evening nap.

While the survival instinct jolting down through every inch of the nerve, Lo and behold, a young half naked lady crossed the road when you're on your way to the grocery shop. Your lips dry, your throat sore, abdominal sustaining third degree gaster juice implosion, and the core of your brain impulsively rejecting signals that flashed bad thoughts coming in from your eyes and ears.

But the real person in charge today, Senior General Qalbu, overruled all other demand other than God the one have ordained. With every ranting and weepings of desire and instinct, S.G. Qalbu decide to be steadfast, be mindful of Allah rules, recite quran, do da'wah, spread goodness, and enjoin charitable act, and husnuzan of other people.

With what in mind? With hope. With hope to attain the reward awaits a few hours down the road. The ni'mah of break fasting with various different kind of sweet foods and drinks.

Ramdhan is a Madrasah, a school, a boot camp, where Son of Adam learn and relearn the meaning of hope and the feeling of reward. Allah given us Ramadhan as a gift, so that the heart may be in charge again of the lust desire and nafs, and to steer and guide it as what Allah please. Its a Madrasah where Son of Adam take a baby step of restraining and enjoy reward, so that come Syawal, Zulqaidah, Zulhijjah, man can be strong and stern in making the right choice in life until the next Ramadhan, although there are no more hope and reward of breaking fast as the one in Ramadhan, but man now rely on hope and reward of meeting with their Lord, the Most Loving One, allah Jalla wa a'la

This is the month where we start again with a baby step, and reminisce the feeling of hope and reward. For Rasulullah said :

“For the fasting person are two joys, the joy at the time of breaking the fast and the joy at the time of meeting their Lord.”


Therefore reward with best of food in moderation, so that you may imagine beyond imagination the joy of meeting with Allah, with the foods which are inequivalent with any food in existence in the entire universe.

Ramadhan al-mubarak friends
