Jalan Cinta Para Pejuang II

~Langkah Pertama: Dari Dahulu Beginilah Cinta

Amor Vincit Omnia
"Wahai kematian datanglah cepat kemari! Hisap dan dekap tubuhku yang penuh cinta ini kerana tidak ada sesuatu di hadapan matahari yang mampu memulihkan kesedihanku.."
William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet


Cinta adalah gulana ketika menyedari dua keluarga mereka(Romeo dan Juliet) masih bertelingkah. Cinta adalah duka yang mengiris pedih di saat-saat berpisah. Rindu mereka menguruskan tubuh dan menguraskan air mata....

"Love conquers all". Or does it?
The phrase would go attune or become harmonised with those who immerse deeply into love. That's because Love becomes the master, and the sky is the limit. Although is not the mountains nor the seas that is conquered, it is rather the vulnerable soul of the person. When Love grabs hold of one's soul, the whole body feels as if it dances to the melancholic melody. Strange as it seems, the vivid view of the flawless world of romance, remains an illusion to the beholder. "Dari dulu, beginilah cinta, deritanya tiada akhir..."

This mental illness, where does it come from?
Ustadz Muhammad Fauzil 'Azim asserts in "Disebabkan oleh Cinta",
 "Tidak ada sebenarnya orang yang gila kerana putus cinta. Yang ada adalah orang dengan keadaan jiwa yang rapuh, jiwa yang retak-retak, lalu sebuah peristiwa menyentak, menjadikannya berkeping-keping."

For Qais and Romeo, these were the description of their devastating souls, the souls that were kept servitude to venomous Love.

A soul, enslaved by Love of that kind,  precedes love as the basis of all their actions. After a while, Love becomes Ilah. It is as though the Sun was created for Love, and the moon shone because of Love.

We do have a choice!
"Maka Allah mengilhamkan kepada jiwa itu jalan durhaka dan jalan ketakwaanNya"
Asy Syams (91:8)

The gift of choosing is verily the most basic desideratum (bekalan) while holding the obligatory title of a khalifah, and Allah has given us that authority to do so. This is no exception to Love, for there is always room for assertion (tanggapan) and stimulation (rangsangan). Indeed, we all have wants and desires. But, Allah would only bestow His adoration (pujian) to those who choose to have faith in their hearts and prevent themselves from unnecessary desires.

"Dan adapun orang-orang yang takut kepada kebesaran Rabbnya dan mencegah diri dari kuasa nafsunya, maka syurga lah tempat tinggalnya."
An-Naazi'aat (79:40-41)

And so this ayat clearly shows that those who take charge of their Hawa' (instead of their desires as their authority), would be rewarded by Allah. 

What would desire (nafs) have anything to do with Love??
Amazingly related. 
زُيِّنَ لِلنَّاسِ حُبُّ الشَّهَوَاتِ مِنَ النِّسَاءِ وَالْبَنِينَ وَالْقَنَاطِيرِ الْمُقَنْطَرَةِ مِنَ الذَّهَبِ وَالْفِضَّةِ وَالْخَيْلِ الْمُسَوَّمَةِ وَالأَنْعَامِ وَالْحَرْثِ ذَلِكَ مَتَاعُ الْحَيَاةِ الدُّنْيَا وَاللَّهُ عِنْدَهُ حُسْنُ الْمَآبِ
"Beautified for people is the love of which they desire - of women and sons, heaped up sums of gold and silver, fine branded horses, and cattle and tilled land. That is the enjoyment of worldly life, but Allah has with Him the best return" 
Ali-Imraan (3:14)

In Love, there are impulses to achieve happiness, tranquility and to feel great. 

Can we really control our emotions??
"Love is a sweet torment..", said Maria in her novel, Ayat-ayat Cinta, "when immersed in a state of Love, there are moments to feel despair, agony, apathy and pain". Good, or bad, these are what we call EMOTIONS. In a Quranic perspective, we have all means to control our desires, but can we really do it?

An amazing discovery by Ekman and Friesen has proven to us that we are a master of our emotions and desires. In detail, their finding was based on the question, "Can we feel what we have expressed in our faces?". They had hundreds of students to do one particular expression that signifies an emotion, while their heart rates were measured. Astonishingly, those who had to come up with a sad expression had a very slow pulse rate, indicating that their whole body were adapted to what they had expressed. Fast pulse rates were found in those who expressed happiness in their faces. 
There you have it. We CAN control our emotions!

"Di Jalan Cinta Para Pejuang, perjuangan pertama adalah sebuah pergelutan jiwa. Pergelutan jiwa untuk menaklukkan cinta itu sendiri..."
