Malaikat maut Mengintai Kita 70 kali sehari



08 Jamadilakhir 1432H. [MOD] -

MEMANG tiada siapa pun dapat menduga bila saat kematian mereka akan tiba. Sebab itu ramai yang masih leka dan tiada persediaan ‘menanti’ saat kematian mereka.

Allah berfirman yang bermaksud: “Setiap yang hidup akan merasai mati, dan Kami menguji kamu dengan kesusahan dan kesenangan sebagai cubaan; dan kepada Kamilah kamu akan kembali.” (Surah al-Anbiyak ayat 35)
Tahukah kita bahawa malaikat maut sentiasa merenung serta melihat wajah seseorang itu 70 kali dalam sehari? Andainya manusia sedar hakikat itu, nescaya mereka tidak lalai mengingati mati.

Oleh kerana malaikat maut adalah makhluk ghaib, manusia tidak dapat melihat kehadirannya, sebab itu manusia tidak menyedari apa yang dilakukan malaikat Izrail.

Hadis Nabi s.a.w yang diriwayatkan oleh Abdullah bin Abbas r.a bahawa Rasulullah s.a.w bersabda yang bermaksud:
“Bahawa malaikat maut memerhati wajah manusia dimuka bumi ini 70 kali dalam sehari. Ketika Izrail datang merenung wajah seseorang, didapati orang itu ada yang gelak-ketawa.

Maka berkata Izrail:
‘Alangkah hairannya aku melihat orang ini, sedangkan aku diutus oleh Allah untuk mencabut nyawanya, tetapi dia masih berseronok-seronok dan bergelak ketawa.’”Justeru, tidak hairanlah, jika ramai manusia yang masih mampu lagi bergelak sakan dan bersenang-lenang seolah mereka tiada masalah yang perlu difikirkan dalam hidup.

Takdirnya esok hari terakhir Allah ‘pinjamkan’ nyawa kepada kita untuk bernafas di muka bumi ini adakah kita sudah cukup bekalan bagi menghadapi dua fasa berikutnya iaitu alam barzakh dan alam akhirat?

Tiada seorang pun di dunia ini dapat menggambarkan bagaimana perasaan dan pengalaman mereka menghadapi saat kematian.Ajal tidak mengenal sesiapa sama ada mereka itu tua, muda, sihat, kaya ataumiskin.

Rasulullah s.a.w juga menjelaskan dalam hadisnya bahawa kesakitan ketika hampir mati itu seperti ditetak 100 kali dengan pedang tajam atau seperti dikoyak kulitnya dari daging ketika hidup-hidup.

Bayangkanlah betapa sakit dan dahsyatnya saat menghadapi kematian. Kalau hendak diikutkan siapa yang hendak nyawanya dicabut dalam keadaan yangamat menyeksakan.

Maka amat beruntunglah sesiapa yang matinya dalam keadaan khusnul khatimah (kebajikan).

Salman Al-Farisi meriwayatkan hadis Nabi s.a.w yang bermaksud:
“Perhatikanlah tiga perkara kepada orang yang sudah hampir mati itu. Pertama: berpeluh pada pelipis pipinya; kedua: berlinang air matanya dan ketiga: lubang hidungnya kembang kempis.

“Manakala jika ia mengeruh seperti tercekik, air mukanya nampak gelap dan keruh dan mulutnya berbuih, menandakan menandakan azab Allah sedang menimpa dia.” (Hadis riwayat Abdullah, al-Hakim dan at-Tarmizi)

Kematian ‘menjemput’ manusia secara perlahan-lahan atau beransur-ansur mulai daripada jasad, hujung kaki kemudian ke paha.

Bagi orang kafir pula, apabila nyawanya hendak dicabut Izrail, wajahnya akan menjadi gelap dan keruh dan dia mengeruh seperti binatang yang disembelih.

Itu pula tanda azab yang diterimanya disebabkan dosa dan kekufuran mereka.

Al-Qamah bin Abdullah meriwayatkan hadis Rasulullah s.a.w yang bermaksud:
“Bahawa roh orang mukmin akan ditarik oleh Izrail dari jasadnya dengan perlahan-lahan dan bersopan sementara roh orang kafir pula akan direntap dengan kasar oleh malaikat maut bagaikan mencabut nyawa seekor khimar.”

Allah juga turut menimpakan seorang Muslim yang berdosa itu dengan kekasaran ketika mereka menghembuskan nafasnya yang terakhir sebagai kaffarah dosanya.

Mungkin ada juga orang kafir yang mati dalam ketenangan mungkin kerana ketika hidupnya dia berbuat kebajikan dan itu adalah balasan terhadapnya kerana setiap kebajikan pasti akan dibalas.

Tetapi kerana tidak beriman, ia tidak menjadi pahala kebajikan dan kekufurannya tetap diazab pada hari akhirat kelak.

Rasulullah s.a.w bersabda yang bermaksud:
“Apabila telah sampai ajal seseorang itu maka akan masuklah satu kumpulan malaikat ke dalam lubang-lubang kecil dalam badan dan kemudian mereka menarik rohnya melalui kedua-dua telapak kakinya sehingga sampai ke lutut.

“Setelah itu datang pula sekumpulan malaikat yang lain masuk menarik roh dari lutut hingga sampai ke perut dan kemudiannya mereka keluar. Datang lagi satu kumpulan malaikat yang lain masuk dan menarik rohnya dari perut hingga sampai ke dada dan kemudiannya mereka keluar.

“Dan akhir sekali datang lagi satu kumpulan malaikat masuk dan menarik roh dari dadanya hingga sampai ke kerongkong dan itulah yang dikatakan saat nazak orang itu.”

Malaikat Izrail menjalankan arahan Allah s.w.t dengan sempurna. Dia tidak diutuskan hanya untuk mencabut roh orang sakit saja ataupun roh orang yang mendapat kecelakaan dan malapetaka.

Kematian mungkin berlaku kerana sebab bencana seperti gempa bumi, banjir, kebakaran dan ada juga yang matinya disebabkan kemalangan, diserang penyakit berbahaya seperti kanser, jantung, Aids, denggi dan taun.

Seorang yang sedang sakit tenat, menjadi rahmat yang tinggi nilainya kerana Allah masih memberi peluang supaya mereka sedar akan kesilapan yang mereka lakukan selama hidup di dunia.

Maka waktu itu mereka masih berpeluang bertaubat dari dosa dan kesilapan. Begitu juga halnya dengan orang mati mengejut disebabkan kemalangan. Ia memberi pengajaran dan peringatan kepada mereka yang masih hidup supaya berhati-hati dan tidak lalai berusaha untuk memperbaiki diri.

Justeru, bagi mereka yang masih diberikan nikmat kehidupan perlu sentiasa mengambil iktibar terhadap segala yang berlaku. Allah menjadikan sebab kematian itu bagi memenuhi janji-Nya kepada malaikat maut.

Saidina Abbas meriwayatkan dalam sebuah hadis antara lain menerangkan malaikat Izrail berasa sedih apabila ditugaskan mencabut roh makhluk bernyawa.

Ini kerana antara makhluk bernyawa itu adalah termasuk manusia yang terdiri daripada kekasih Allah iaitu Rasul, nabi, wali dan orang soleh.

Malaikat maut mengadu kepada Allah betapa dirinya tidak disenangi keturunan Adam
a.s.Dia mungkin dicemuh kerana mencabut roh manusia yang mana menyebabkan orang berduka cita akibat kehilangan orang tersayang dalam hidup mereka.

Justeru, jika seseorang Muslim itu meninggal dunia, beberapa langkah penting perlu dilakukan seperti menempatkan jenazah di tempat yang sesuai sebagai menghormatinya, sunat meletakkan keadaan kakinya menghala ke arah kiblat, tanggalkan pakaian berjahit,

tutupkan jenazah dengan sehelai kain nipis ke atas seluruh jasadnya, rapatkan kedua-dua belah matanya dan mulutnya, letakkan kedua-dua tangan jenazah di atas dadanya sebagaimana dalam keadaan qiam (berdiri) ketika solat, letakkan sesuatu yang sederhana berat di atas perutnya seperti gunting dan pisau serta sunat bagi yang hidup mencium jenazah.

Umat Islam dilarang mengaitkan kematian seorang Muslim itu dengan tanda tertentu. Itulah yang menyebabkan umat Islam semakin mundur kerana terlalu banyak mempercayai perkara khurafat dan tahyul.

Jika ada kematian seperti kemalangan contohnya kita ditegah untuk bertanya kepada waris apakah perbuatan ganjil yang dilakukan sebelum kematiannya.Tiada siapa pun dapat mengelak daripada mati melainkan Allah dan kematian tetap akan datang tepat pada masanya.

Apabila sampai ajal seseorang, umat Islam digalakkan memberi nasihat kepada keluarga si mati supaya bertenang dan banyakkan bersabar.

Islam menegah amalan keterlaluan seperti menjerit dan meratapi kematian. Mereka yang masih hidup peluang perlu dimanfaatkan dengan memperbaiki keadaan diri yang ternyata banyak melakukan kesilapan dan kesalahan.

Tiada daya atau usaha yang boleh menyelamatkan kita daripada kematian.Kematian menjadikan hati manusia menjadi sedih serta berpisah dengan keluarga tercinta. Hanya amalan soleh saja akan membawa kita bertemu Allah.

Urgent action needed against Penang swiftlet farming

Wednesday, 23 June 2010 19:41

Rebecca Duckett highlights the risks posed by swiftlet farming in the George Town world heritage site in a letter to the Penang Chief Minister.

As a resident of George Town and as a council member of the Penang Heritage Trust, I want to bring to your attention yet again, the problem of swiftlet farming in our urban areas. The National Guidelines For Swiftlet Breeding are to be presented to Cabinet very soon and there has been no public discussion whatsoever with stakeholders, residents or NGOs. This lack of transparency has to be addressed before any Guidelines for Swiftlet breeding can be passed.

According to the June 2005 newsletter of the Malaysian Swiftlet Farmers Association, over 10% of houses - 400 houses- in George Town have been converted into swiftlet farms. The latest casual count estimates that these numbers could be closer to 20% of houses in George Town.

We do not oppose swiftlet farming in general; it is a very lucrative business which brings in approximately RM 1.5 billion per year. However, the damage urban swiftlet farming in George Town is doing to our "intangible heritage", by moving people out of buildings in order to open swiftlet farms, and to our "tangible heritage" by destroying the original features of the “exceptional range of shophouses and townhouses” that gave us our WHS listing in the first place is too great to be ignored.

Swiftlet farming encourages swiftlets to nest in a particular house, in order to harvest the nests that they build there. These nests are then sold on at an extremely lucrative price, to be used as the main ingredient in birds nest soup. We are not opposing the practice of swiftlet farming in general but we want it relocated from George Town into less populated, agricultural areas, for the following reasons:

1) Health concerns, including but not limited to:

- Cryptococcus
Dried bird droppings and bird’s nests have been known to harbour the yeast spore Cryptococcus, which ideally forms colonies at 20 - 37°C (perfect for Georgetown) and which is responsible for infections in human beings. Inhalation of Cryptococcus spores cause lung infections, cryptococcal meningitis and pneumonia in healthy children and adults, and is particularly dangerous to anyone who is immuno-compromised.
King, Dr. John W. and DeWitt, Meredith L., “Cryptococcosis,” http://emedicine.medscape.com/article/215354-overview, October 30th, 2009

- Avian Flu
Avian flu, or H5N1, is a rare but severe disease that can be fatal. The last person diagnosed with avian flu was in Vietnam on 16th March of this year. According to the WHO (World Health Organization), “all birds are thought to be susceptible to infection with avian influenza viruses”. It is possible that the avian flu virus could be introduced to swiftlets in George Town from migratory waterfowl, which scientists believe are “now carrying the H5N1 virus in its highly pathogenic form, sometimes over long distances.”

The WHO states: “Japan, the Republic of Korea, and Malaysia have controlled their outbreaks and are now considered free of the disease. Elsewhere in Asia, the virus has become endemic in several of the initially affected countries.” However, there is no reason to suggest that swiftlets coming into contact with infected migratory birds from other parts of Asia will not contract H5N1. Living in such close proximity to one another, contaminated swiftlets would quickly transfer the disease between themselves, increasing the chances for human infection either via direct contact with contaminated birds or contaminated feces, the two most common sources of infection. World Health Organisation, “Avian influenza “bird flu”,” http://www.who.int/mediacentre/factsheets/avian_influenza/en/#countries, February 2006

- Dengue Fever

Pools of water created by swiftlet farmers to ensure an ideal humidity and temperature for the birds also create perfect breeding grounds for mosquitos, including Aedes Mosquitos, which carry Dengue Fever. Outbreaks in George Town on specific streets have recently been very common.

2) The danger swiftlet farming poses to George Town’s Unesco status:

- The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (Unesco) seeks to encourage the identification, protection and preservation of cultural and natural heritage around the world considered to be of outstanding value to humanity. George Town’s World Heritage Site status is not just a label that will increase tourism, but a treaty signed to conserve the unique “intangible heritage” of George Town.

However, homes that are converted into birdhouses suffer irreparable damage, as original windows, doors, plasterwork and features are removed, and sprinkler systems are set up to keep the house humid. This not only causes water damage, damp and rot to that house, but also to adjacent properties, thereby threatening the “unique architectural and cultural townscape without parallel anywhere in East and Southeast Asia...in particular [the] exceptional range of shophouses and townhouses” which gave George Town WHS status in the first place.

Puan Maimunah, as Acting General Manager to the George Town World Heritage Office, has stated that: “personally, the swiftlet industry poses a conflict to the World Heritage Site listing, and possibly needs to be relocated”. If action is not taken against urban swiftlet farming, and George Town “loses the characteristics which determined its inscription on the World Heritage List” it may be placed on the List of World Heritage in Danger or have its status as a World Heritage Site revoked. The Site listing undoubtedly brings more tourism and therefore more money to our city. The loss of our architecture and/or listing would negatively impact on tourism and harm the economy of George Town.

3) Noise pollution:

- The sound systems used to attract swiftlets by playing amplified birdsong continuously constitutes noise pollution, which is a nuisance for residents of and visitors to George Town. However, in recent months, the main source of noise pollution is the birds themselves because numbers have soared and are now out of control. The sky above residences in George Town are full of birds emitting piercing sounds especially in the early hours of morning, late afternoon and evening.

Responsibility of the Penang state government and its departments:

The Penang State Government controls the future of George Town. The decisions made now have long term consequences. In order to address these consequences, we urgently request that the State Government of Penang keeps to and enforces, the terms of the extended moratorium on Swiftlet breeding in George Town, that states that operators cannot start any new swiftlet farms in George Town. The moratorium was set up to halt the proliferation of swiftlet houses in George Town, not as a open bill for them to proliferate freely. The breeders are openly setting up new farms all over George Town. By condoning and allowing this to happen the State Government and MPPP accepts that it is responsible for any negative impact on public health and environment.

We request that the State Government creates a heft annual tax to be paid by each individual urban swiftlet farm until they have moved from the urban areas of George Town on or before the deadline set by the State Government. This tax creates a fund which can then be used when an outbreak of Avian Flu H5N1, Crytococcus or other disease relating to birds, breaks out enabling the State Government to act on any emergency measures needed for this outbreak or environmental disaster cleanup. For the swiftlet farmers, this tax payment will mark their dedication to the maintenance of their farms health and safety measures and further reinforces their responsibility and belief that swiftlet farming in urban areas amongst a dense human population, poses no dangers to humans. Non payment of this tax allows the State Government to forcibly close down the swiftlet farm.

We also insist that in addition, the State Government as a whole, with the Heads of the Veterinary Department and Public Health, be made personally responsible for any environmental and health and safety issues that will arise from the spiralling increase in the population of swiftlets over George Town and the environmental disaster that will take place within the next few years, if swiftlet farms are not removed immediately from our urban areas. The State Government and the Heads of the Veterinary Department and Public Health will also be personally responsible to pay any compensation required in events of death from any bird related disease, outbreak of disease, as well as the loss of investment made by stakeholders who have put huge investments into the belief that George Town will benefit from its Unesco World Heritage Status and is currently being marketed as a tourist destination and world class heritage site by the Penang State Government. Loss of investment should also include, but not be limited to, being forced to move from buildings because of an individuals fear to his/her own personal health and safety.

Laws are being enforced by the State Government on developers, on residents, on landlords that are trying to revitalise George Town as a residential, cultural, heritage and tourist hub, yet swiftlet farms are being allowed to proliferate freely, beyond the realms of law. The State Government must act with a balanced hand.

I would request your immediate assistance in lobbying the Malaysian Government to sign into law, guidelines explicitly prohibiting swiftlet farming in George Town and urban areas, and to act on bringing current owners of swiftlet farms in urban areas to justice. The health and safety of the rakyat and Malaysia's precious environment should be foremost in any Government initiative. Moving swiftlet farming out of George Town and urban areas is in keeping with the State Government of Penang's initiative for a "Cleaner, Greener, Penang" and must be viewed with long term benefit to all the rakyat, all cultures, all tangible and intangible heritage in George Town and our urban areas.
