..::seorang pelajar soleh::..

 -- seorang pelajar yang soleh --
-- a pious student --

a student was once studying in new delhi,
the night had already set in, as he sat alone in the masjid,
studying by the lamp's flame,
in the same locality,
a young lady was on her way to visit some relatives,
however a riot broke out and the streets were no longer safe..
the young lady could find no place of refuge,
except this very mosque,
when the student saw her,
he ordered her to leave immediately,
he told her, it is not appropriate for you to remain here because if the local people see you here,
then this will be a cause for my disgrace.
they will remove me from this masjid and this will cause harm to my studies.
terrified, alone,
the young lady explained her condition,
a riot has broke out in the locality and if i leave the masjid i fear that i would be dishonored.
upon hearing these words, the student kept quite and asked her to sit in one corner.
thereafter the student returned to his corner and engaged himself in studying the whole night.
while studying he would momentarily place his fingertip on the flame of his lamp.
the young lady had been carefully observing this.
slowly, the night had burnt away. 
at the break of dawn, the student told the young lady.
the roit has subsided and the road is safe. let me take you to your home,
the young lady said, i will not returned home, until you revealed me,
the secret for repeatedly placing your finger tip on the flame of your lamp.
the student said: you should not concern yourself with that.
nevertheless, the young lady persisted in her request.
the student finally said,
the devil repeatedly whispered into my heart and encouraged me to do evil with you.
hence i placed my finger tip on the flame and adressed myself thus:
when cannot bear the heat of the fire of this world the how will you ever bear the painful fire of Jahannam?
Allah, through His Grace, protected me.
hearing this, young lady returned home,
she was a daughter of a wealthy person and she was about to be engaged to the son of another wealthy person.
after this incident she refused the proposal and said: i desire to marry a certain student who lives in such and such a masjid..

when cannot bear the heat of the fire of this world the how will you ever bear the painful fire of Jahannam?
"Hai orang yang beriman.Peliharalah dirimu dan keluargamu dari api neraka yang bahan bakarnya adalah manusia dan batu;penjaganya malaikat yang kasar,yang keras yang tidak mendurhakai Allah terhadap apa yang diperintahkanNya dan mengerjakan apa yang diperintahkanNya." --At Tahrim: 6--
