THE STORY OF THE PENCIL ~
taken from 'LIKE THE FLOWING RIVER' by Paulo Coelho,
diri kita ibarat sebatang pensel .....yang sebenarnya mempunyai KUALITI tersendiri ,
A pencil has 5 qualities which ,if u manage to hang on them ,will make u a person who is always at peace with the world .
'First quality : you are capable of great things ,but you must never forget that there is a hand guiding your steps .That is the hand of God and we must always bear in our mind that -He always guides us according to His will .
'Second quality : Now and then, I have to stop writing and use a SHARPENER .That makes the pencil suffer a little ,but afterwards ,he's much SHARPER .So ,you too ,must learn to bear certain pains and sorrows ,because they will make you a BETTER person .
no pain ,no gain .
sharpen the saw in order to become highly effective Mukmin
'Third quality : the pencil always allows us to use an eraser to rub out any mistakes .This means that correcting something we did is not necessarily a bad thing ; it helps us to keep on the road to justice ^_^
Dan barangsiapa yang mengerjakan kejahatan dan menganiaya dirinya ,kemudian ia memohon ampun kepada Allah ,niscaya ia mendapati Allah Maha Pengampun lagi Maha Penyayang ( An-Nisaa': 110 )
Dari Ibnu Abbas RA ,ia berkata : Rasulullah SAW bersabda : barangsiapa yang membiasakan membawa istighfar ,maka Allah akan melapangkan segala kesempitannya ,memudahkan segala kesulitannya dan memberi rezeki yang tanpa diduga-duga .
(HR Abu Dawud )
'Fourth quality : what really matters in a pencil is not its wooden exterior ,but the graphite inside .So always pay attention to what is happening inside you .
'Finally, the pencil's fifth quality : it always leaves a mark .In just the same way ,you should know that everything you do in your life will a mark ,so try to be conscious of that in every action.'
