Salaf
Selalu gatal dengan logika sejumlah orang tentang siapa yang layak disebut "salaf"--orang yang mengikuti jalan Rasul, para sahabat, dan para salafush-shalih yang lurus.
"Kang, Ustadznya salaf ngga?"
Pertanyaan semacam itu, menurut saya, tidaklah valid.
Pertama, tidak ada ummat Islam (yang akalnya normal) yang tidak menginginkan dirinya mengikuti jalan Rasul dan para sahabat. Tidak ada muslim yang dengan sengaja berpikir untuk, "Jalan ke surga kan ada banyak, kenapa saya harus ikut jalan Rasul dan para sahabat? Saya mau tempuh jalan lain."
Jelas-jelas sumber utama memahami Islam adalah Al-Quran dan hadits yang keduanya bermuara dari Rasulullah Muhammad shallallahu 'alayhi wa sallam. Kalau ada yang menafikkan betapa utamanya jalan yang ditempuh Rasulullah, maka topiknya bukan tentang apakah dia salaf atau bukan, tapi apakah dia muslim sungguhan atau bukan.
Jadi, jika label salaf ditentukan dari apakah seseorang mengakui keutamaan jalan Rasul dan meniatkan diri untuk mengikuti jalan Rasul, well, siapa yang tidak? Semua kelompok akan mengaku demikian, bahkan sebagian mengklaim paling lurus dibandingkan dengan yang lainnya.
Kedua, jika label salaf dialamatkan pada orang-orang yang bersepaham hingga hal-hal furu' (cabang) dengan si pelabel, atau bereferensi (hanya) pada ulama-ulama yang sama dengan referensi si pelabel, maka pertanyaan yang lebih tepat adalah: "Dia dari kelompok kita atau bukan?"
Jika standarnya adalah hal seperti "Apakah dia membolehkan musik?", "Apa pendapatnya tentang Yusuf Qardhawi?", atau semacamnya, maka-- menurut saya, si penanya tidak mampu hidup dalam realitas bahwa ada beragam cara pandang dan cara tafsir dalam Islam, yang menghasilkan pendapat yang berbeda-beda meski referensinya sama.
Ketidakmampuan memahami realitas perbedaan dalam Islam ini (yang terjadi bahkan ketika Rasulullah masih hidup, berlanjut semakin banyak ke zaman khulafaur-rasyidin--yang diantaranya dapat kita lihat pada kasus pembunuhan Umar dan perang sesama muslim di zaman Ali, dan terus berlanjut hingga hari ini) berkolaborasi dengan pemahaman bahwa hanya ada satu kebenaran dalam Islam, tidak mungkin ada beberapa pendapat yang sama-sama benar, menyebabkan penganutnya terjangkit delusi bahwa kelompoknya adalah Islam dan Islam adalah kelompoknya.
Kembali ke persoalan "siapa itu salaf?"--jika yang kedua ini adalah kasusnya, maka kita hanya perlu cukup tahu lalu menghindari perdebatan dengan si pelabel salaf, sembari mendoakan agar hati-pikirannya Allah bukakan agar mampu bersikap lemah lembut terhadap saudara-saudara muslimnya meski tidak berkiblat pada kitab dan ulama yang sama.

a man was asked how he managed to pray all 5 prayers
he replied, I became certain that no one could stand meeting me 5 times a day, no matter what state I was in - happy, sad, lonely, angry - but the Most Loving, the Most Merciful

One of the Salaf was asked: “Do you not feel the bite of loneliness?”
He replied: "How can one feel the bite of loneliness when he is with Allah?"
— [al-‘Uzlah of Ibn Abī al-Dunya (49)]

Advice to my brothers and sisters; when something (small) happens to you, like you lost something, or you’re panicking looking for a solution. Always make istighfaar. Ask Allah for forgiveness. It may be that Allah puts you through something like that due to your sins and shortcomings. But when you seek forgiveness, it may be that He removes this test from you. It has happened to me many times, that I’d lose my keys, I’d be locked up somewhere, I’d be lost in some place unknown, I’d make istighfaar and Allah would immediately alleviate this test from me and solve it for me. Alhamdulillaah.
أستغفر الله العظيم وأتوب اليه

Sincerity of the Salaf in their worship
Ibn Hazim رحمه الله تعالى said:
Increase in the Dhikr Laa ilaaha illaAllaah – verily, these are words which are pronounced without the movement of the lips, so that the one sitting next to you is unaware (you are in Dhikr) since he is unable to see you utter this statement.
📝 التلخيص لوجوه التخليص
ل《ابن حزم》٣/١٥٠
✒ Translated by:
Umm Hyatt al-Amerikiyyah حفظها الله
▪ Note:
This means that the one sitting next to you will not know that you are in Dhikr (as it is not visible to him). The Salaf tried to hide their worship out of their fear they had for showing off. This was from their level of ikhlaas.
سبحان الله.

When intending to do something good, do not delay it until tomorrow. When involved in something to do with the hereafter, keep yourself involved as long as you can. When involved in some worldly matter, put your mind to it (so as to get it done). And if you are praying and Shaytan whispers, ‘You are showing off,’ then make your prayer even longer.
Al-Harith Ibn Qays (quoted from Ibn Al-Mubârak in Al-Zuhd wa Al-Raqâ’iq Vol.1 p126)
Al-Harith b. Qays was a student of the Companions ‘Ali and Ibn Mas’ud – Allah be pleased with them. He was a scholar and devout worshipper.
The last bit of advice about prayer serves to repel one of Shaytan’s plots, which is to turn people away from worshipping Allah by making them feel they are showing off if they try to perfect their worship.

It is reported from Abū Al-‘Āliyah – Allah have mercy on him – that he said:
A fasting person is in a state of worship as long as he does not backbite, even if he is sleeping in bed.
Al-Imām Ahmad, Al-Zuhd Vol.4 p313.

Earlier generations would memorize the Quran using this amazing method:
They would divide the رُبْع (rub`) in half, creating what's called a ثُمْن (thumn), which generally comes out to be one page. This was the standard unit, the default amount of new material to be studied and memorized at a time.
What would they do with this thumn?
They'd memorize it using طريقة السلف الأولى , the method of the previous salaf.
First: الحفظ (hifdh). They would commit the ayat to memory.
Second: التجويد (tajweed). Then they would go to a shaykh of tajweed so they can master the rights of each single letter on that page.
Third: الرسم (Script). The writing of some of the Quranic words is not the same as writing outside the Quran in other contexts. So they would go to a teacher of Quranic script and learn the script of the words on that page.
Fourth: القراءات (Qira'at). Then they would sit with a shaykh of qira'at to learn what the different qira'at dictate for the ayat of this page.
Fifth: النحو (Nahw/ Arabic grammar and syntax). Next, they would sit with a master of the Arabic language to learn every rule of grammar in the ayat.
Sixth: التفسير (Tafsir). Lastly, they would go to a shaykh of tafsir to learn the deeper meaning of the verses, the scholarly interpretations, the context of revelation of the ayat (أسباب النزول). They would be taught fiqh, hadith, seerah based on this thumn.
After they finish with these five shuyukh, then the students would write down the thumn.
Imam Ahmad said:
"لا يصلحُ اخِرَ هذه الأمة إلا ما أصلحَ أولها."
"Nothing will rectify the last part of this ummah except what rectified the first part of it."
We are the last part of this ummah.
May Allah grant us the strength and discipline to emulate the first part of this ummah. May Allah rectify our affairs!
[I translated this gem from a dars in Arabic.]
