Anatomy of a Believer


What an interesting poster!

Assalamualaikum dear sisters and readers of KakChik's Wardrobe. Today's sharing would be this interesting poster that I copied from a friend's facebook album (with her consent, thank you Asia Green). I am thinking of printing this out as an A3 size poster and paste it everywhere suitable in the Library, at the Bookshop and at Home.

This poster will be a good reminder for me and hopefully for everyone else. There are special purpose and function for each and every part of our body and here are the ones that were seen above:
Forehead - place of prostration (Reminds us to pray 5 times a day, a special meeting my our Creator to ask for forgiveness, to ask for blessings, to ask for help, to ask for anything).

Eyes - saves them from Haram (Reminds us to see only Halal things so that our soul will be clean from evil.)

Ears - listen to the Qur'an (Let's lessen our habit of listening to music and let's listen more to the Qur'an. It brings you peace, insyaAllah).

Tongue - speaks only what pleases Allah (Yes, I agree. Let's gradually teach ourselves to speak only beneficial things that will pleases Allah. Talking about Islam, talking about da'wah, talking about helping the Muslim community etc. etc.)

Heart - full of believe in Allah (Yaqeen that Allah is the only one God, the Creator of us and the universe).

Muscles - fight against the oppresors (How to fight them are subjectives and varies. We should use our intelligence to do that.)

Stomach - fasts during the month of Ramadhan (I believe that fasting can teach us lots of things whether about being humble, being modest, being strong etc.)

Hands - help the needy, give charity (Teach ourselves to be bounteous so that we always be grateful for      His blessing upon us especially if we're wealthy.)

Legs - use to go to pligrimage (Let's work hard so that we can fulfill this last pillar of Islam. If you already complete this pillar, use the 'legs' to help others go to pilgrimage.

Feet - use to go to the mosque (Let's make sure that the men in our family always go to the mosque either for solat or for any other religious or community activities. We can also join them whenever possible and without fitnah.)

I add my own thoughts on each function/purpose. Please excuse my lack of Islamic knowledge, that's why I don't quote any ayat or hadith that might have a relation on this anatomy.

Anyone who knows any suitable ayat or hadith, please inform me so that I can insert it here. Thank you.
