sudah terprogram, rapi, tersusun, terencana tapi unpredictable dan yang pasti Allah
mempercayakan prosesi ini pada sosok yang tepat "IZROIL", malaikat yang saklek dengan
aturan tanpa kompromi dan tawar menawar.
Pokoknya "Yang pernah hidup
di dunia, pasti akan mati tepat pada jadwal yang sudah ada di server utama "LAUHIL
MAHFUDZ"". Perlu diketahui kawan tinta Allah telah kering yang sudah JADI lama sekali
bahkan sebelum Allah menciptakan langit dan bumi.
Peraturan tentang kematian
1. Datang pada sesuatu yang pernah hidup
SWT berfirman : "Kullu Nafsin Dzaaiqotul Maut" ( 3 : 185 )
berjiwa akan merasakan mati
Tenang saja kawan ... gak usah merinding, takut,
atau ngeri. Biasa sajalah ... Masih bernafas kan.. ?? ( alhamdulillah dulu dong .. :) )
2. Datangnya sewaktu-waktu
Allah SWT berfirman "Ainama
takuunu Yud'riikumul mautu Walau kuntum fii Burujim Musyayyadah" ( 4 : 78 )
mana saja kamu berada, kematian akan mendapatkan kamu, kendatipun kamu di dalam benteng yang
tinggi lagi kokoh.
Sayangnya malaikat Izroil bukan mbah Google yang setia
menjawab setiap pertanyaan kita. Malaikat Izroil juga gak punya operator hotline yang bisa
menjawab telpon kita setiap saat kita butuhkan.
Makanya manusia secerdas Einstein aja
gak tahu kapan ajalnya. Belum ada dan saya jamin gak bakalan ada sebuah penemuan manusia yang
bisa nemuin "Kalkulator usia" ... Alat untuk menghitung ajal manusia.
Dan sayangnya juga malaikat Izroil juga tetap bisa melakukan tugasnya dimanapun dengan cara
Gak butuh "Death note",
Gak terpengaruh harga BBM yang
Gak bisa KO sama Bodyguard sekuat apapun
Gak ada yang bisa kucing-
kucingan sama malaikat yang satu ini kayak di film "Christmas Caroline".
ada yang bisa diajak tukeran,
Kalo waktunya datang gak bisa nawar, bahkan Koruptor
selicik apapun gak bisa melobi usianya sendiri.
3. Kematian bukanlah akhir
Jangan percaya kalo ada yang bilang "Hidup cuma sekali".
Yang bener "Mati itu cuma sekali, kalo hidup berkali-kali, sebelum hidup ini kan udah
pernah hidup di alam arwah sama alam kandungan, bahkan abis mati kita idup lagi". (
Bukaan, bukan reinkarnasi macam kerasakti ato Avatar gitu ... Maksudnya dibangkitkan lagi untuk
menerima rapor di Hari Kebangkitan Internasional trus kita hidup deh di akhirat )
Allah SWT berfirman : Fiiha tahyauna wa fiiha tamuutuuna wa fiiha tukhrojuun ( 7 : 25 )
"Disanalah ( Bumi ) kalian dihidupkan, disanalah kalian dimatikan, dan disanalah
4. Sudah ada jadwalnya
jadwalnya udah dateng, Malaikat Izroil pasti datang. Gak bakalan ada dialog macam iklan rokok
"Wani piro?" ( Kecuali dulu nabi Musa AS ).
"Wa maa kaana
linafsin an tamuuta illa biidznillahi kitaaban muajjala" ( 3 : 145 )
yang hidup kecuali dengan idzin Allah sebagai ketetapan yang telah ditentukan waktunya.
Hehe tenang saja kawan .... kalau belum waktunya gak akan datang kok Malaikat
Izroilnya. Walopun misalnya ada orang yang udah pengen mati, trus manggil manggil malaikat
Izroil, sms, bbm, mensen, ngewall hehe ( emang malaikat Izroil punya hp).
5. Ada saat dimana Kematian akan mati
Akan tiba saat dimana Allah akan
memensiunkan Izroil yakni ketika Kematian telah mati.
Dalam Kitabu Sifati
jannah wannar diterangkan bahwa suatu hari diakhirat nanti penduduk surga dan penduduk neraka
harus menghentikan aktivitasnya, Allah akan memberi pengumuman pada seluruh penduduk akhirat.
Penduduk surga khawatir, jika kehidupan nikmatnya disurga akan berakhir. Penduduk Neraka
bahagia, karena mungkin siksaannya akan berakhir. Kemudian Allah memberi pengumuman bahwa
kematian telah diserupakan dengan kambing, dan pada hari itu kematian akan disembelih mati.
Semenjak saat itu, tak ada lagi kefanaan, semua hidup selamanya. Yang di neraka disiksa
selamanya tanpa terhenti waktu. Yang di surga nikmat kekal selamanya.
Menjadi Peringatan Buat Orang iman
Kalo Kholifah Umar pernah ngendikan,
"Kafaa bil mauti Mauidzoh", Cukuplah kematian menjadi peringatan.
Mau apa lagi sih ... Pada akhirnya kan manusia cuma satu aja bisanya ... "menuhin kuota
umurnya dengan ngisi buku catatan amal"
Nah, pertanyaannya ... sampai
detik ini, sampai hembusan nafas yang ini, catatan mana yang paling banyak terisi ...
How Some Men Fake an 80-Hour Workweek, and Why It Matters
Imagine an elite professional services firm with a high-performing, workaholic culture. Everyone is expected to turn on a dime to serve a client, travel at a moment’s notice, and be available pretty much every evening and weekend. It can make for a grueling work life, but at the highest levels of accounting, law, investment banking and consulting firms, it is just the way things are.
Except for one dirty little secret: Some of the people ostensibly turning in those 80- or 90-hour workweeks, particularly men, may just be faking it.
Many of them were, at least, at one elite consulting firm studied by Erin Reid, a professor at Boston University’s Questrom School of Business. It’s impossible to know if what she learned at that unidentified consulting firm applies across the world of work more broadly. But her research, published in the academic journal Organization Science, offers a way to understand how the professional world differs between men and women, and some of the ways a hard-charging culture that emphasizes long hours above all can make some companies worse off.
Ms. Reid interviewed more than 100 people in the American offices of a global consulting firm and had access to performance reviews and internal human resources documents. At the firm there was a strong culture around long hours and responding to clients promptly.
“When the client needs me to be somewhere, I just have to be there,” said one of the consultants Ms. Reid interviewed. “And if you can’t be there, it’s probably because you’ve got another client meeting at the same time. You know it’s tough to say I can’t be there because my son had a Cub Scout meeting.”
Some people fully embraced this culture and put in the long hours, and they tended to be top performers. Others openly pushed back against it, insisting upon lighter and more flexible work hours, or less travel; they were punished in their performance reviews.
The third group is most interesting. Some 31 percent of the men and 11 percent of the women whose records Ms. Reid examined managed to achieve the benefits of a more moderate work schedule without explicitly asking for it.
They made an effort to line up clients who were local, reducing the need for travel. When they skipped work to spend time with their children or spouse, they didn’t call attention to it. One team on which several members had small children agreed among themselves to cover for one another so that everyone could have more flexible hours.
A male junior manager described working to have repeat consulting engagements with a company near enough to his home that he could take care of it with day trips. “I try to head out by 5, get home at 5:30, have dinner, play with my daughter,” he said, adding that he generally kept weekend work down to two hours of catching up on email.
Despite the limited hours, he said: “I know what clients are expecting. So I deliver above that.” He received a high performance review and a promotion.
What is fascinating about the firm Ms. Reid studied is that these people, who in her terminology were “passing” as workaholics, received performance reviews that were as strong as their hyper-ambitious colleagues. For people who were good at faking it, there was no real damage done by their lighter workloads.
It calls to mind the episode of “Seinfeld” in which George Costanza leaves his car in the parking lot at Yankee Stadium, where he works, and gets a promotion because his boss sees the car and thinks he is getting to work earlier and staying later than anyone else. (The strategy goes awry for him, and is not recommended for any aspiring partners in a consulting firm.)
A second finding is that women, particularly those with young children, were much more likely to request greater flexibility through more formal means, such as returning from maternity leave with an explicitly reduced schedule. Men who requested a paternity leave seemed to be punished come review time, and so may have felt more need to take time to spend with their families through those unofficial methods.
The result of this is easy to see: Those specifically requesting a lighter workload, who were disproportionately women, suffered in their performance reviews; those who took a lighter workload more discreetly didn’t suffer. The maxim of “ask forgiveness, not permission” seemed to apply.
It would be dangerous to extrapolate too much from a study at one firm, but Ms. Reid said in an interview that since publishing a summary of her research in Harvard Business Review she has heard from people in a variety of industries describing the same dynamic.
High-octane professional service firms are that way for a reason, and no one would doubt that insane hours and lots of travel can be necessary if you’re a lawyer on the verge of a big trial, an accountant right before tax day or an investment banker advising on a huge merger.
But the fact that the consultants who quietly lightened their workload did just as well in their performance reviews as those who were truly working 80 or more hours a week suggests that in normal times, heavy workloads may be more about signaling devotion to a firm than really being more productive. The person working 80 hours isn’t necessarily serving clients any better than the person working 50.
In other words, maybe the real problem isn’t men faking greater devotion to their jobs. Maybe it’s that too many companies reward the wrong things, favoring the illusion of extraordinary effort over actual productivity.
