ثُمَّ كَانَ مِنَ الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَتَوَاصَوْا بِالصَّبْرِ وَتَوَاصَوْابِالْمَرْحَمَةِ

Lalu ia adalah golongan orang yang beriman dan saling menasihati untuk bersabar, dan saling menasihati untuk menunjukkan rasa belaskasih.

Iler Iler Iler ler,
tandure wis anglilir
jo ijo royo royo
kasungguh penganten anyar
penokno blimbing kuwi
lunyu-lunyu yo penekno
kanggo mbasuh dodot ira

Dodot ira,
dodot ira kumintir bedah ing pinggir
dondomono jrumatana
kanggo seba mengko sore
mumpung padang rembulane,
mumpung jembar kalangane


When The Islamic spirit has rising
Peace and prosperity will be appearing
look like a couple in honey moon
So, oh all of a leader
take Islam for your life
Although it's so difficult
take Islam for your life
for making peace in your heart

Your heart have torn apart
As a sarong are torn on the edge
Sewing and embroidered
To play this afternoon
when its bright moon
when vast place

Because any problems of life makes the heart have torn apart as a sarong are torn on the edge ( a wounded soul), its need to be cured as before trough repentance (taaba- ya tuubu - taubatan), while the opportunity still exists.

Iler Iler (Coleus atropurpureus Benth) , some of Javanese herb. Iler Iler leaves contain essential oils, among other things that are antibiotic antibiotics karvakrol, eugenol is the relief of pain, ethyl saliailat inhibiting irritation. It also contains a small amount of mucus.Because Iler Iler is useful, Sunan Kalijaga take it as the title song of Java to describe the condition of society after the Islamic spirit is applied in the land of Java.

The conclusion is Repentance with the teachings of Islam is the best way to heal the soul of mankind that has been torn apart by different ideologies and many problems of life, so accomplished a life full of peace and prosperity as the meaning of Islam itself.

World Crisis

“The World in Crisis” describes the period of transition that the world is now entering, as we experience the last days of the era known to historians as the “Modern Period”, which itself came into existence in Western Europe in the 16th century.

The Change will be caused by a combination of factors, the most important of which are climate change (“global heating”) and resource depletion. We are also, experiencing a transition from one technoeconomic system to another, as our technology develops and industrial age economic models reach the end of their natural lives. Even without the twin threats of global heating and resource depletion, we face the transition to a new paradigm, and this alone would require new social values and patterns of behavior, in other words a new global culture.

The remarkable claim forms the central message in a new book, 2014 - How to survive the next world crisis, written by the University of Cambridge academic, Professor Nicholas Boyle.

His study brings a lifetime's research in fields including politics, economics, philosophy, theology and literature to bear on the state of global politics and the causes, consequences and wider meaning of the present financial crisis.

It warns that the economic collapse of 2007-2008 could mark only the start of a wider breakdown in international relations, and predicts that by the middle of the decade just dawned, the United States will find itself the key player in a series of make-or-break decisions about the future of the world.

The choices the US makes will either condemn us to a century of violence and poverty, or usher in a new age of global co-operation, the book asserts.

It adds, however, that the more peaceful alternative will only be realised if the international community can accept that nation states are no longer strong enough to deal with the world's problems and construct an effective system of global governance instead.

"We are approaching a moment of decision, when the deeper issues that have begun to make themselves felt in recent years can no longer be postponed," Professor Boyle said. "By 2014, our legacy to the 21st century is likely to have been determined, for better or for worse."

Those issues represent some of the major flashpoints of world politics; among them economic management, the emergence of new powers such as China and India, and the need for international co-operation on climate change.

From an evolutionary perspective, the process of globalization, which has been proceeding at warp speed, is a risky strategy, indeed, because it draws all of us every more tightly into a single global economy and a single global human population. Guided by the economic logic of efficiency and profit, we are putting all of our eggs in a single basket. Ecologists even have a term for this kind of excessive integration, which makes the whole system vulnerable to any disruption within or in the external environment. Such systems are described as "hypercoherent".

As we face the future, we need to think about more than sustainability in our use of resources or our agricultural systems. We need sustainable human institutions fit for stormy weather. In a "hypercoherent" tightly integrated global economy, a stall in the Gulf Stream that suddenly gives Europe the climate of Greenland could be more than a regional catastrophe. In much smaller economic crises over the past decade, I think we have seen ample evidence that the whole global economy could unravel. The worst of all possible futures is one in which a climatic disaster leads to a global depression, leaving human societies without the resources to address the causes of rapid climate change or adapt to the consequences.

How the Qur'an teaches us to face a crisis situation?

Minimally, there are two things kind of mutual intestate. Ie intestate to truth and patience (Q.S. Al Ashr) and intestate to be patient and Compassionate (Q.S. al-Balad). In difficult conditions (Ascend = aqobah) where there is slavery, poverty and other difficult conditions such as those facing the world today, then the intestate for the patience and compassion is needed.

The new paradigm for the new world order must be grounded in the values ​​to love others. Not the destruction of one group over another group, or seek to exploit the advantages of a country with other countries. Various forms of colonialism in various forms and character should be eliminated by enforcing the values ​​of compassion as to which the Koran teaches that man is a human one. who gave life to someone it means giving life to all humanity, and vice versa, whoever kills a human being without the right reasons, then essentially kill the whole human family.

Fasting Ramadan is basically to get to the most noble human level where the most noble interpreted as having the greatest love, love for God that is manifested also by loving all his creations, including the human love of different nations, races, religions, economic strata and various other attributes.

In the end, the glory of someone determined to what extent he can be beneficial to society. In an era filled with crises and problems, as now, the glory of a person's contribution is determined by what he gives in order to participate to overcome these problems. Apostle Prophet has been pointed out how it can provide benefits at the full human crises in his day. Today we need to give our best contribution in the frame love one another wherever we are.

Special Indonesian Muslims, we have a very good example of the spreader of Islam, especially from the Wali Sanga (the nine guardians) how they can create a peaceful prosperous society in a variety of differences as described in the song of Iler Iler above.

Servant of the Merciful : Ibadurrahman

When we can run our responsibility as a Muslim in the world problematic part overcome with compassion, then that's when we become loving servant of God almighty. We become Ibadurrahman (Servant of the Merciful). Ibadurrahman characteristic traits are as follows :

1. And the servants of the Most Merciful are those who walk upon the earth easily, and when the ignorant address them [harshly], they say [words of] peace.
2. And those who spend [part of] the night to their Lord prostrating and standing [in prayer]
3. And those who say, "Our Lord, avert from us the punishment of Hell. Indeed, its punishment is ever adhering;
4. Indeed, it is evil as a settlement and residence.“
5. And [they are] those who, when they spend, do so not excessively or sparingly but are ever, between that, [justly] moderate
6. And those who do not invoke with Allah another deity or kill the soul which Allah has forbidden [to be killed], except by right, and do not commit unlawful sexual intercourse. And whoever should do that will meet a penalty.
7. Multiplied for him is the punishment on the Day of Resurrection, and he will abide therein humiliated –
8. Except for those who repent, believe and do righteous work. For them Allah will replace their evil deeds with good. And ever is Allah Forgiving and Merciful.

9. And he who repents and does righteousness does indeed turn to Allah with [accepted] repentance.
10. And [they are] those who do not testify to falsehood, and when they pass near ill speech, they pass by with dignity.
11. And those who, when reminded of the verses of their Lord, do not fall upon them deaf and blind.
12. And those who say, "Our Lord, grant us from among our wives and offspring comfort to our eyes and make us an example for the righteous.“
13. Abiding eternally therein. Good is the settlement and residence.

(Quran, 25 : 63 - 76)
