Ya Hayyu.. Ya Qoyum, The Ijazah from Tukang Ojek

It was about 3 weeks ago at the early of Nov 2013, on the morning day I went to my school at Indorama, Patra Kuningan, Jakarta. I went by Ojek from the Cawang railway station to Indorama Building. On the Ojek Journey, I open conversation to the Tukang Ojek, we talk each other to live the atmosphere. I still remember a liitle bit about our conversations as follow… The Ojek said, “I has Ojek from some years.. ,I feel very happy.. I never feel poor because God always give the sufficient rizki to me, I believe.. it has been happen after practicing this dzikir.. Ya Hayyu.. Ya Qoyyum as much as possible at every time”. He said this dzikir was gotten from Habib Ali, an ulama from Bukit Duri. He always going to ngaji at Habib home every Saturday.

The tukang Ojek recommended me to practice this dzikir. He also recommended me to come to Habib Ali teaching at Bukit Duri. This Tukang Ojek is great, He tell his story to me by heart, honest and sincerely.

This Ojek statement actually inspired me. I realize maybe it was God’s guidance via him. After searching from the Internet, I know that statement praying..Ya Hayyu..ya Qoyyum (O’ The Living, O The Sustaining).. it has deep meaning. It is a kind of the statement to express the acknowledgment of the God’s existence, and the Eternal Power of God.. Allah The Almighty. It is the expression about the nothing of Human without God’ help. Person who express this praying will guide his heart to depend fully to God, he will have deep faith upon Him, He will feel more confident..more syukur.. more happy… and the consequence, he will be given more rizki, …InsyaAllah.
“Thank you very much Pak Tukang Ojek from your teaching..! ’… May Allah give you the best berkah..
