Tak setampan Nabi Yusuf, tak seromantis Nabi Adam, dan tak sebaik Rasulullah.

Ichsan Afriadi

Ichsan Afriadi

ichsan afriadiAssalamu'alaikum, I'm Ichsan Afriadi or in Arabic is called إخسان أفريدي. I was born on Thursday 1 April 1993 or Khamis 8 Shawwal 1413 A.H. I breathed first, when the seven days after Eid al-Fitr. I've been alive for 23 years now, I'm an amateur poet taken in the course of Life and profoundly in accordance with my faith. I likes snow, but that's probably because I'm like the white color. I LOVE Medan, that's where I live, when I'm lucky enough to be there. My campus is at State Polytechnic Of Jakarta, therefore now I live in Jakarta.

I love to be alone like I love dark colors and it is makes me feel calm. I've been like this since I was a baby. I'm an INFP (Introversion, Intuition, Feeling, Perception) or Phlegmatic-Melancholic.

Hmm... These days, I've been trying to classify my thoughts into two categories: "Things I can change" and "Things I can't" it seems to help me sort through what to really stress about. I write articles about my feel, most of which about dreams and love. Reach for your dreams seriously, then your dreams will come true. Never say never! There's no pattern to it, except that it happens to all of us. Of course! If about love, I can't explain for it. I can't predict how it'll up materialized, because love is unpredictable. Love comes from God, come down to your heart. It's frustrating and it's so beautiful.

ichsan afriadiI'm not a little boy! I've apparently been the victim of growing up, which apparently happens to all of us at one point or another. It's been going on for quite some time now, without me knowing it. I've found that growing up can mean a lot of things. For me, it doesn't mean I should become somebody completely new and stop loving the things I used to love. It means I've just added more things to my list. Like for example, I still like to be alone, I still love food with tuna, lol. But some new things I've fallen in love with Calligraphy Arts.

Why I am a Muslim?

Look everybody! I didn't chosen Islam, am just Lucky boy because Allah Azza Wa Jalla chosen me to be a Muslim, thank You Allah for Your merciful. I'm always love You and love Islam a religion of justice, may Rabb choose you insyaAllah in the future to be Muslim.

Ichsan AfriadiA muslim believes in all the Messengers and Prophets of God without any discrimination. All messengers were mortals, human beings, endowed with Divine revelations and appointed by God to teach mankind. The Holy Quran mentions the names of 25 Messengers, Prophets and states that there are others. These include Adam the first Prophet and include Nuh, Idris, Hud, Salih, Ibrahim, Lut, Isma’il, Is'haq, Yaq'ub, Yusuf, Ayyub, Shuayb, Musa, Harun, Dhul-Kifl, Dawud, Sulayman, Ilyas, Al-Yasa, Yunus, Zakariya, Yahya, Isa, and Muhammad the last of the Prophets (peace be upon them all). The key message brought by all Prophets was the same, to believe in One God and not to associate partners with Him, to stay away from sins and to lead a life devoted to earning God’s pleasure and love.

Why I love the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam?

If you ask me, why do I love him Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him). I love him because he cared about us muslims, and loving him is a condition. If you love Allah, then love the Prophet Muhammad. Allah loved him very much! He was Allah's Final Messenger, and the hearts of many did his mercy touch. His beautiful character makes me admire him, his trustworthiness and honesty even before he became God's Prophet, disbelievers knew that he was trustworthy.

I love the Prophet Muhammad because of good manners, he was the best example. I love how he was patient throughout his life and how his morals were never skeptical. He cared about his nation too, thus he taught us what we should know about our religion. When given the chance he'd always educate, blessing us with advice through his companions.

As a father and grandfather, the Prophet Muhammad was kind and tender loving. His mercy to the poor widows and orphans. His good treatment of them is too astounding. His tolerance! Even to non-Muslim neighbors, is also something to be admired. His mercy too was further manifest through his kind treatment of the slaves he hired. As a leader, he was charismatic. As a warrior, marked with strength and bravery. As a family man, full of mercy. And a husband who treated his wives fairly. As a friend, he was accommodating, full of cheer. He brought smiles to people's faces, respectful to the old, and kind towards the young. Mercy was the Prophet Muhammad's basis.

I love how he was merciful, and because of his mercy, he always tried to guide. I love how he struggled to obey Allah, And how he remained patient all through his life. I love how he was able to do so much. So many good deeds, despite his simple life. How he could survive on mere dates and water, and yet stand for long hours when praying at night. I love how he was so thankful to Allah, how he was always ready to sacrifice. I love how his character was dignified, how he was strong and gentle at the same time. I love the patience of Prophet Muhammad, in worshipping Allah, in fasting, and praying. His patience in helping Muslims, in hard times, and how he was merciful and forgiving. Because of my love for Prophet Muhammad, I try to follow him and say "you should too" if you truly love Allah, then love Muhammad. Let your following him make your love more true.

O Allah, help us obey You and help us follow Muhammad in this world and to Jannah. Grant us his companionship in Paradise, and freedom to drink from his blessed fountain. Aamiin!

ichsan afriadiAnd then, I think it's important that you know that I like to smile. The Prophet Muhammad SAW said: "When you smile to your brother's face, it is charity!". Alhamdulillah, I'm really stoked that you read this whole thing. I commend you for that! This was ridiculously long, and you probably have other stuff you could've done in the last five minutes. So... For you or anyone else who has spent five minutes on me in some way, thank you so much. I love you like I love Syair and having the last word and that's all praises to Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala.
