I have been watching news lately especially on the 'peralihan kuasa' and what I could observe is the many of us lack of emotional maturity. Sometimes I wonder if I have to laugh at or just kept it to myself. But emotional maturity is a quality that politicians must possess because by having emotional maturity here means one should be able to accept the reality of life (people and things) as they are without them to be other than that. So, there woudnt be any backfire / attacking others personal issues. Politics remain politics and personal issues will remain as personal issues.
This is supported in the Al Quran when Allah says that once a man has reach his maturity and full grown, Allah will granted him wisdom, knowledge and reward those who do good to others (28:14 “When he reached maturity and strength, we endowed him with wisdom and knowledge. We thus reward the righteous”). By saying this, it is clear that having the emotional maturity also a special gift from Allah and it based on our individual growth, time and experience. From my understanding, as a leader, he/she should have the emotional maturity so he/she will be able to perform his/her duty not only to Allah, but to mankind – in other words, fully functioning in a socio-politic profession.
The emotion maturity provides information that can help us eliminate the mental and emotional drain caused by confusion, stress, overwhelm, anxiety and frustration. Hence, the guiding of our emotion is so critical as the Quran says: (64:11) Nothing happens to you except in accordance with God's will. Anyone who believes in God, He will guide his heart. God is fully aware of all things.
Remember my dear leaders, you are there because of the society and dont forget that your life is part of the society's lifes - THINK BEFORE YOU ACT and SAY! oppss..... by the way, this is not only meant for you... but your family members too! Watch them closely!!
