Ibrah Kesilapan

Assalamualaikum wbt.



Hari ini hari kesedihan.
Hari yang memberi saya ibrah yang besar.
Tapi benarlah bahawa yang baik itu datang dari Allah dan yang buruk bahkan hina itu datang dari kesilapan manusia itu sendiri. Dari awalnya, saya telah buat kesilapan. Saya telah mengambil langkah kejahilan. Jahil, kerana ia membangkitkan semangat bukan kepada mengingati Allah malah memuja duniawi.

Kepada semua sahabat yang berada di sekeliling saya especially akhwat-akhwat (Q, S, Am, An, At, Am, My, Af) sepenuh hati saya meronta merasa berdosa kepada kekasih-kekasih kesayangan saya ini... semoga kalian sudi memaafkan saya agar di padang Mahsyar nanti tidaklah saya ditahan- tahan kerana hutang dosa yang masih belum terlunas oleh kemaafan.

Ya Allah, sesungguhnya hidayahMu sentiasa Kau berikan kepada kami. Ampunkan aku, Redhalah denganku dan izinkan aku menjadi golongan mereka yang Kau sebut di dalam Al-Fajr ayat 28:




Dan izinkanlah aku menjadi sebahagian dari mereka yang Kau alu- alukan ke SyurgaMu yang mengalir di bawahnya sungai- sungai dan memberikan kerehatan bagi isi-isi Syurga- syurga itu, dalam surah Fussilat ayat 30.




Sesungguhnya orang-orang yang berkata, "Tuhan kami adalah Allah" kemudia mereka meneguhkan pendirian mereka, maka malaikat- malaikat akan turun kepada meraka (dengan berkata) "Janganlah kamu merasa takut dan janganlah kamu bersedih hati; dan bergembiralah kamu dengan (memperolehi) syurga yang telah dijanjikan kepadamu"

Futur

andai kau ingin futur,
hentikanlah segala langkah,
susun semula biar ia teratur,
moga kau tahu mananya salah,
jangan terusan asyik mengalah,
kehendak nafsu biarkan jangan,
nanti terusan dihanyut hasutan.

terdetik tidak, terlintas tidak,
futur itu bukan lawan sembarangan,
mati hatimu digenggam syaitan,
kering jiwa mu hampa kekosongan,
merintih letih menunggu jawapan,
sedarnya hanyalah di kemudian,
bermandikan bahagia dunia sementara,
akhirnya lemas di muara fata morgana,
terlepas indahnya kekal akhirat sana.

letih letih, engkau meronta!
pulih pulih, engkau bertanya!

andai kau ingin futur,
lihatlah luasnya kasih ilahi,
lihatlah tangan yang memberi,
lihatlah nikmat terbit matahari,
jikalau engkau memerhati.

dan andai kau masih ingin futur,
ketahuilah kau bukan berseorangan,
rehatlah, kerana panjang perjalanan,
kita langkah bersama ke hujung sana,
menanti dan mengharap redhaNya,
hanyalah Dia semata-mata.

Jalan ini





Bersempena Ramadhan sebagai bulan perubahan.


Wahai bumi,
Aku malu hidup di atasmu
Penuh dengan kenistaan
Kemungkaran yang aku lakukan
Berjalan sombong dan angkuh
Seperti aku akan hidup selamanya


Duhai langit,
Malu aku meminum air hujan darimu
Aku bersihkan badan dari air
Dari awan yang ada padamu.
Lalu aku lakukan kejahatan dan kemaksiatan.


Ya Tuhanku,
Ampunilah dosaku ini,
Tatkala aku berjanji dengan-Mu
Selalu aku mungkiri.


Nukilah: Atif Ghazali

Saya rasa puisi ini benar dalam menyampaikan perasaan yang seharusnya ada dalam diri kita, terutamanya saya. Everytime, kita terlupa. Dan waktu itu segala macam dosa boleh dilakukan. Ya mungkin bukan dosa besar bagi orang seperti kita ini, tapi itu tidak mustahil.


“Andai Islam seperti sebuah bangunan usang yang hampir roboh, maka akanku berjalan ke seluruh dunia mencari jiwa-jiwa muda. Aku tidak ingin mengutip dengan ramai bilangan mereka, tapi aku inginkan hati-hati yang ikhlas untuk membantuku dan bersama membina kembali bangunan usang itu menjadi sebuah bangunan yang tersergam indah..” (Imam As-Syahid Hassan Al Banna)

Ya As Syahid Hassan, insyaallah langkahmu kuteruskan, langkahmu kami teruskan. Akan kita bina bangunan usang biar ia menjadi bangunan indah. Usangnya kerana kurangnya pengertian untuk menjaga, ya kita bina ia kembali. Ya Allah, setelah kau campakkan hidayah dalam hati ku, dalam hati kami, kekalkanlah hidayah itu, berikanlah kekuatan dan kemudahan bagi kami menempuh jalan ini. Jalan yang telah kau pilihkan untuk kami.

Aku tinggalkan keseronokan dunia demi menujuMu ya Allah biarpun masih belum sepenuhnya. Aku usaha dan kepadaMu saja aku berlindung dari kelemahan diriku sendiri. Benar kata Saidina Ali "Apabila kamu merasa letih kerana melakukan kebaikan maka sesungguhnya keletihan itu akan hilang dan kebaikan itu akan terus kekal. Dan sekiranya kamu berseronok dgn melakukan dosa (maksiat) maka sesungguhnya keseronokan itu akan hilang dan dosa itu akan tetap berkekalan."

Biar aku letih, letih kerana melakukan kebaikan bukan kemaksiatan.

Barang siapa yang selalu kekenyangan maka banyaklah dagingnya, dan siapa yang banyak dagingnya maka kuatlah nafsunya. Siapa yang kuat nafsunya maka banyaklah dosanya, siapa yang banyak dosanya maka keraslah hatinya dan siapa yang keras hatinya maka tenggelamlah dia dalam bencana dunia serta keindahannya.Sesungguhnya sebahagian perkataan itu ada yang lebih keras dari batu, lebih tajam dari tusukan jarum, lebih pahit daripada jadam dan lebih panas daripada bara. Sesungguhnya hati adalah ladang, maka tanamlah ia dengan perkataan yang baik, kerana jika tidak tumbuh semuanya (perkataan yang tidak baik) nescaya tumbuh sebahagiannya.
Astagfirullah...

Turkey's neo-Ottomanism

I read this article for one of my uni subjects. The question was put to be considered by readers is whether ‘warnings about Turkey’s neo-Ottomanism are more sensational than factual’? Giving the facts, evidences and some knowledge about the Islamic history in Turkey, i guess this article really caught my attention haha.

Mustafa Akyol, ‘Turkey's Maturing Foreign Policy: How the Arab Spring Changed the AKP’, Foreign Affairs, 7 July 2011.

On June 12, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the most popular Turkish prime minister of the last half century, marked his third straight electoral win by averring his leadership over not only Turkey but the entire region. “Believe me,” he said in a victory speech, “Sarajevo won today as much as Istanbul; Beirut won as much as Izmir; Damascus won as much as Ankara; Ramallah, Nablus, Jenin, the West Bank, Jerusalem won as much as Diyarbakir.” The speech reaffirmed the foreign policy that Erdogan’s Justice and Development Party (AKP) has pursued since it came to power in 2002. As the AKP’s foreign minister, Ahmet Davutoğlu, puts it, Turkey’s goal has been to have “zero problems” with its neighbors. And over the past decade, Davutoğlu has dramatically improved Ankara’s relationships with capitals across the region through constant diplomatic engagement, fostering mutual trade, and opening national borders.

Some in the West have seen Turkey’s new foreign policy as a shift Eastward. Indeed, Turkey has drawn closer to authoritarian governments in Iran and Syria. And Erdogan and his team’s Muslim identity have influenced some of their foreign policy rhetoric, such as their strong stance in support of Palestine. Accordingly, some, including the British historian Niall Ferguson, even suggest that Turkey might be heading toward “a revived Ottoman Empire” that would dominate the whole Middle East.

But warnings about Turkey’s neo-Ottomanism are more sensational than factual, and miss a broader point. Like any major power, Turkey bases its foreign policy on calculations of hard national interests, and coats it in value-laden rhetoric that reflects popular sentiments. Moreover, even as the AKP has supported friendly autocrats, it has positioned itself as a model democracy for the rest of the Muslim world. At a May 2003 summit of the Organization of the Islamic Conference in Tehran, Abdullah Gül, who was then Turkey’s foreign minister and is now its president, argued for “a vision of accountability, transparency, fundamental rights and freedoms, and gender equality.” And in 2006, in remarks before a meeting of AKP members in support of President George W. Bush’s Freedom Agenda, he said, “Had there not been freedom and democracy in Turkey, we would not be in power right now.”

The popular protests that swept the Middle East this spring put the dual nature of the AKP’s foreign policy to the test. At times, especially in the case of Libya, Turkey’s reaction to events seemed haphazard. According to Steven Cook, a senior fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations, Erdogan and his team looked like “stumbling politicians afraid of a new regional order.” But a closer look at events reveals that Turkish foreign policy was actually the result of careful balancing between hard policy and values. In fact, as Ibrahim Kalin, the chief policy adviser to Erdogan, argued recently, the Arab Spring might have “vindicate[d] the new strategic thrust of Turkish foreign policy.”

The United States’ foreign policy conundrum -- how to maintain the tricky balance between national interests and idealism -- is not unique. Other countries looking to lead on the world stage will have to find that balance, too.
The first two stages of the Arab Spring -- Tunisia and Egypt -- were fairly unproblematic for Turkey’s foreign policy. Tunisia’s President Zine el-Abidine Ben Ali had been dictatorial but fiercely secularist and, like the AKP’s opponents in Turkey, had banned headscarves and suppressed religious movements. AKP party leaders found it easy to publicly sympathize with the protesters who took to Tunisia’s streets in December. Pro-AKP media in Turkey even drew parallels between the protests and the AKP’s own fight against what they see as Turkey’s excessively secularist Kemalist order.

Similarly, the AKP viewed President Hosni Mubarak’s February 11 ouster from Egypt as a welcome development. Mubarak had also been a secular dictator, suppressing Islamic parties such as the Muslim Brotherhood. In addition, his regime resented Turkey’s rising regional influence, which seemed to have sidelined Egypt’s role in negotiating Israeli-Palestinian peace. No wonder that when thousands gathered in Cairo’s Tahrir Square, Erdogan publicly lauded their efforts and called on Mubarak to “listen to the wishes of the people.” In the same speech, Erdogan reminded Mubarak that every Muslim would go to the grave “as neither a president nor a prime minister” but as a humble man or woman who would be measured only by his deeds.

It was not as easy, however, for the AKP to condemn Libya’s Muammar al-Qaddafi; Libya has been one of Turkey’s major economic partners, and Turkish businesses have invested billions of dollars there in the past few decades. Hence, when the anti-government riots started in Benghazi in February, some 25,000 Turks were living in Libya. The AKP focused on evacuating these people first, and refused to speak out against Qaddafi, since, in the words of one Turkish diplomat, any condemnation of the regime could “put our citizens at risk.” Still, even after most Turkish citizens in Libya had returned home, Ankara remained unwilling to denounce Qaddafi. Davutoğlu explained that he wanted to “be able to speak with both sides of the conflict” so he could find a mutually agreeable settlement. Surely, he also wanted to protect Turkey’s vast economic interests in the region.

When Ankara proved reluctant to back the ongoing NATO operation to support the Libyan rebels, many were quick to criticize the AKP for backing away from its values -- including Libya’s provisional government in Benghazi, protestors across the Middle East, and politicians in the West. The opprobrium changed the AKP’s calculations. “Zero problems” foreign policy has always required the AKP to be in good standing among Middle Eastern leaders. But the empowerment of the region’s people meant that the AKP could no longer rely on its standing among government officials alone. So in May, Erdogan, who had shifted gradually from criticizing the NATO operation to backing it, finally called on Qaddafi to step down, and welcomed the head of the Libyan opposition, Mustafa Abdul-Jalil, to Ankara later that month. During the meeting, Abdul-Jalil noted that Turkey’s support for the rebels proved that NATO’s military “action is not a (medieval) crusade, as alleged by Moammar Qaddafi.” And when Davutoğlu visited Benghazi in early July, he was welcomed by anti-Qaddafi masses, who cheered, “Thank you, Turkey.”

The AKP applied what it learned in Libya to Syria, as that country, too, was engulfed in protests. Before the AKP came to power, the relationship between Syria and Turkey had been cold. Syria was a longtime supporter of the outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK), a terrorist group and one of Turkey’s biggest headaches; Syria had hoped to use the PKK as a bargain chip in order to win access to more resources and water. But once Davutoğlu was in power his zero-problems policy paid off: one by one, the two countries resolved many of the biggest problems between them, including their border disputes and Syria’s support for PKK terrorism. In 2008, Ankara even came close to brokering a peace agreement between Syria and Israel, which was halted by Israel’s December 2008 operation in Gaza.

When the Syrian regime began cracking down on popular protests, Ankara tried to use its leverage in Damascus to convince the regime to reform. But Erdogan’s rhetoric grew harsher as it became clearer that Assad would not reform. Still, in early June, when Turkey criticized Assad for his “barbarism” against the protesters, Assad, and his backers in Tehran, felt betrayed. Meanwhile, Turkey welcomed the thousands of Syrian refugees who fled Assad’s violence, housing them in camps on the Turkish side of the Syria-Turkey border.

All this underlines an increasingly people-focused tone in Ankara’s policy toward the Middle East. As Ersat Hurmuzlu, an adviser to President Gül, put it in a June interview with Turkey’s Star, a daily newspaper, “Turkey is with the people, not the regimes.” In a conference of Turkey’s regional and Western ambassadors, Davutoğlu called the Arab Spring “a late normalization process,” citing Turkey as “a source of inspiration” for the region.

Davutoğlu’s characterization might not be too far-fetched. Indeed, the AKP’s Turkey is not just an economic success. It also shows a third way between the two extremes that have haunted the modern Middle East -- secular authoritarianism and Islamist authoritarianism. Having thrown off secular authoritarianism, Turkey’s new system, which incorporates both secular democracy and Islamic values, offers an attractive model. It was not an accident, for example, that both of the mainstream Islamic parties in Tunisia and Egypt -- the NAHDA and the Muslim Brotherhood -- announced that they would use the AKP as their example and run in elections, rather than striving for complete control.

To be a truly admirable model, of course, Erdogan still has some work to do. The AKP’s success story is incomplete because of Turkey’s own conflict with Kurdish nationalists and the AKP’s waning incentive for political reform after nearly a decade firmly in power. In the coming years, the AKP will have to heed popular calls to draft a new liberal constitution and build the political consensus to ratify it, which will necessitate reconciliation between Turkey’s conservatives and secularists, and Turks and Kurds. If Erdogan can accomplish that grand consensus, he might really turn Turkey into a beacon of democracy for all other Muslim nations.

Meanwhile, the Arab Spring seems to have been a learning experience for Ankara. It also showed that the United State's foreign policy conundrum -- how to maintain the tricky balance between national interests and idealism -- is not unique. Other countries looking to lead on the world stage will have to find that balance, too. It isn’t far fetched to believe that, soon, Turkey’s policymakers and think tanks will be discussing some of the same questions as the American ones, namely how to support democracy in the Middle East, where autocrats have been so politically, and economically, useful.

Israeli-Palestine Issue - in brief

I have been searching for videos that could briefly explained what was and is happening in the most geopolitically unstable region of the world, the Israeli-Palestinian part of the world. I like the Jewish attitude more, they are "never to forgive, never to forget" So many dead, so much destruction have happened. Know the history, understand the pain, then you will realise that this is your problem too.
Norman Finkelstein, he is a Jewish from America yet he takes his side to support the rights of the Palestinians. He fights for their rights and often lead his way by asking a reasonable and sensible question which is "if we accept the legitimacy of the Israeli state, why dont we accord to the same standard that we put to that to accept the legitimacy of the Palestinians' rights/state?"

So pleaseee watch his videos. Quite long but they are very interesting. I could type out his points but i'm a big fan of great speakers. I love to hear his speech. Try to listen to some other videos, they are great! :)

















Mengemis Kasih

Tuhan dulu pernah aku menagih simpati
Kepada manusia yang alpa jua buta
Lalu terheretlah aku dilorong gelisah
Luka hati yang berdarah kini jadi parah

Semalam sudah sampai kepenghujungnya
Kisah seribu duka ku harap sudah berlalu
Tak ingin lagi kuulangi kembali
Gerak dosa yang menhiris hati

Tuhan dosa itu menggunung
Tapi rahmat-Mu melangit luas
Harga selautan syukurku
Hanyalah setitis nikmat-Mu di bumi

Tuhan walau taubat sering kumungkir
Namun pengampunan-Mu tak pernah bertepi
Bila selangkah kurapat pada-Mu
Seribu langkah Kau rapat padaku

Jar of Hearts

And who do you think you are
Running 'round leaving scars
Collecting your jar of hearts
Tearing love apart
You're gonna catch a cold
From the ice inside your soul
So don't come back for me
Don't come back at all

Who do you think you are
Who do you think you are

by Christina Perri

I think this part of her song is great!

BUTTERFLY FLY AWAY

Assalamualaikum wbt





Sesungguhnya, pada saat ini, saya berdoa untuk diberikan kekuatan dari Allah. The world has somehow shifted untuk saya. Kurang larat untuk berjalan. Everytime angkat air sembahyang, masuk bilik, tuhan jadi peneman air mata kerana tahan sakit. Sakit orang perempuan pun datang jugak ni. Alhamdulillah alhamdulillah alhamdulillah.
Dengan keadaan assignments yang ongoing ini, semoga Allah berikan jangka masa yang terbaik bagiNya untuk saya siapkan semua.

Sifat orang yang beriman berbeza dengan orang biasa, setiap dugaan yang Allah bagi kepadanya, disyukurinya. Semoga kami tergolong dalam golongan yang Kau sebut dalam Kitab Mu Ya Allah, yang reda dengan apa yang Kau berikan dan diredaiMu - lalu akan Kau jemput kedalam Taman-taman Syurga Mu. Insyaallah.

Semoga kita diberikan kesihatan yang baik oleh Allah kerana being healthy is the best thing a man can have. Insyaallah. Lagu ini saya tujukan untuk semua orang yang perlukan sedikit hiburan.






*Dont worry, saya sihat alhamdulillah*

Kembalikan urusanku kepadaMu

Assalamualaikum wbt.

Discussions for this posting are very much welcomed. I think i should share some videos and links on what's happening in Malaysia regarding Bersih 2.0 Rally. To be honest, i believe both sides are not that 'clean' enough to gain my total support. Not because the intended purposes of the rally are bad (in fact i think they are very good and they make perfect sense), but i have a problem with those who start this idea esp Ambiga. Have a look at this video

#These videos are to encourage your thoughts so dont be judgmental in this issues#






Those are some of her background. Try to Google her if you need some clarification. Another point of view if some of you want to know about what our Malaysian islamic scholars believe in this idea, this is their ideas..





And these are the 8 demands:

1. Clean the electoral roll
2. Reform postal ballot
3. Use of indelible ink
4. Minimum 21 days campaign period
5. Free and fair access to media
6. Strengthen public institutions
7. Stop corruption
8. Stop dirty politics

and you can find some pictures of what was happening yesterday here,
to clean or not to clean

Dua heals everything.

Inspirasi

Assalamualaikum wbt

Hope semua sihat harini, being healthy is the best property a man could have. Well, not for me these days, last night for example, i was such in pain. My feet macam burning and urat macam ditarik2. Terbangun in the middle of the night just to struggle mcm tuh really something. Glad experience macam nih dont always come but once dia datang, u can see i can barely walk the day after. Above all, alhamdulillah saya okay.

back to the title, its called 'Inspirasi' or 'inspiration'. but why?
yes yes disebabkan oleh pain nih and 5 assignments waiting and memanggil manggil untuk di siapkan, i really need an inspiration. I looked at my lil' sister's and my parents' photos. Also, i found this lovely song called 'Anything for you' and 'If i die tonight'. The sweet lyrics amused me. So that helped me with my assignments last night. Alhamdulillah..


oh oh ini parts of the lyrics:

If there were a single sacred rose
On a mountain top that grows
Where nobody ever dares to go
For you I'd climb that mountain high
I would reach up to the sky
If that rose was your desire

Okay continue..

Till then

Pain

Phewh~ i could not walk again.
I dont think i could go to uni this evening.
Hopefully, my feet will get better soon! Insyaallah
Or else, i have to study at home jelah, aisey. haha
Anyways, sometimes i dont go out for like 3 days because of this pain.

Dots

While waiting for an appointment with a tutor, i would just say something here. I learn something this morning, i could say that i am sad but the lessons are more far more important than my feelings. It's just great to realise how much good and bad experience can teach you.
So, here they are:
1. Dont be very hard on yourself
2. You are a rich person when you have great and loyal friends with you
3. Despite our worries, everything will turn out well.
4. God loves you more than you love Him. So be grateful. Alhamdulillah.
5. Insyaallah, trust yourself so that people can trust you.

Reminiscence

Assalamualaikum wbt.

Alhamdulillah hari ini nak share lagu nih. Actually sy tengah seriously rindu kat someone. Dia dah lama tak berbual dengan sy. Sy choose untuk jauh dari dia sbb seperti lirik2 kat atas tu, itu semua dunia.


Chorus
Ult li albi bissaraha (I'm opening up my heart with honesty)
Hayya nab'idil karaha (Let’s avoid the hated and hatred)
Syakkireena a' kulli ni'ma (Let's remain thankful with what we have)
Ba' ideena anil fattana (Let's avoid all lies and sins)

Verse 1
I feel the heat
From these 4 candles burning
As I'm staring out the window
In solitude I look at life
From different angles
Thoughts strangled
My mind is suffocatin'
In this truth quest
A greed law
That we abide by is ruthless
Enough will never satisfy
Until we toothless
Filthy millionaires
Are gamblin' until they muflis
A sad fact of life
But mankind approved this
I gotta call Him
Sajadah is where the booth is
I'll make it clear that
I ain't even tryin' to preach ya
By sharing thoughts I hope
To find a little peace here
I thank Allah for blessing me
To be creative
So here's a diss for me
For bein' unappreciative
Wanted a perfect life
Yeah smile then die old
Fame, money, women
Phat cribos and white gold
Drive my own Beemer
Before I hit two six
A straight pink bitin' toothpicks
Who walk around town wit' two chicks
And doin' new hits to woo tricks....
Now that's wrong
Pleasure from partyin'
And bullshit don't last long
A lotta yuppies sneakin'
Cars out when dad's gone
Crackin' bottles in clubs
Frontin' designer fashion
But I ain't about
To trade happiness for a Jag
So stop smilin' with your ragtop down
Cause for a fact
I don't care about your money
Or how slick your car
'Cause no matter how rich and big you are
It's still Allahuakbar...

Chorus
Ult li albi bissaraha (I'm opening up my heart with honesty)
Hayya nab'idil karaha (Let’s avoid the hated and hatred)
Syakkireena a' kulli ni'ma (Let's remain thankful with what we have)
Ba' ideena anil fattana (Let's avoid all lies and sins)

Verse 2
I know that all this
Ain't the right thing
Partying, chasing moneys
And material things
Flying high
Think nobody gonna
Clip my wings
I'm lying to myself
Knowing that
I've been neglecting
Responsibilities
As a healthy Muslim
Riches and loot
Ain't nothing
We frontin'
Diamonds and scrilla
But forget to say
Alhamdulillah
Made my album a killer
Plan B
Now 2-3 droppin'
And I wish to
Ask for forgiveness
Your guidance
Protection and strength
For humbleness and faith
To make me a better man
Success in foreign lands
Never dreamt of that
I remember being 18
When we started Too Phat
Now let's go back
Three years before that
Sometimes I forget
Me and my parents
Took a trip with granddad
I remember '95
While performing Umrah
Made my wish in Mecca
Right in front the Kaabah
Dear God
You made it possible
When facing obstacles
Please let me do good
Before I pass on
In the hospital
And keep reciting
The Testimony of Faith
And find the right way
Out of this life's maze

Chorus
Ult li albi bissaraha (I'm opening up my heart with honesty)
Hayya nab'idil karaha (Let’s avoid the hated and hatred)
Syakkireena a' kulli ni'ma (Let's remain thankful with what we have)
Ba' ideena anil fattana (Let's avoid all lies and sins)




Till then.

Ramai yang cuba mengubati dirinya

Assalamualaikum wbt.

Baru perasan rupanya dah 3 bulan tak buat posting baru. Sometimes ada idea, but tak ada time. sometimes ada time, but tak ada idea. Tapi kali ini pun tak ada idea, cuma nak cerita 1 benda.

This incident took place during the Special Olympics in Seattle. 9 contestants took part in a 100 yard dash. Some of them were physically challenged while others were mentally disabled.
As the sprinters lined up at the starting line, the starter prepared and shouted "on your mark, get set, go!" together with the gun fire. And all the contestants started running. I mean not exactly in a dash but with smiles and clear enjoyment to run the race to the finish and win.
However, midway, 1 contestant accidently stumbled. He fell and rolled over a couple of times. He began crying. Then, something amazing happened. When all the other eight heard the fallen friend crying, they slowed down, and turned back, went back to they crying boy.
One girl with Down's Syndrome bent down and kissed the painful knee of the crying boy, and said "this will make it better". Then they helped the boy to get up and walked hand-to-hand to the finishing line together! Everyone in the stadium stood up and cheering went for them!

Subhanallah.

Till later. bye :)

Mencari Tuhanku

Assalamualaikum,

Baru baru ini kami ada buat perbincangan tentang persediaan sebelum menghadapi exam yang sudah sangat dekat. kali ini, kami berjaya membawa beberapa sahabat-sahabat baru untuk turut mendengar. Insyaallah moga Allah buka hati mereka untuk terus menyertai kami. moga kasih sayang yang terjalin membantu mereka mengenali tuhan mereka seperti kami yang mencari2 jalan menuju tuhan.

Usrah kali ini dipermudahkan isinya dan lebih menjurus kepada peperiksaan, sesuai dengan keaadaan dan keperluan kami. Antara point yang menarik hati saya adalah apabila kakak usrah menyebut tentang mencari tuhan.

Mencari Tuhanku
Seorang isteri yang tiba-tiba meragui tentang tuhannya dibolehkan keluar dari rumah tanpa izin suami untuk mencari tuhannya. Ini disebabkan oleh akidahnya yang terganggu.

Saya sebagai manusia biasa tidak lari dari fitrah si insan yang mencari tuhan. Akidah dan iman saya memerlukan makanan, makanan rohani-makanan yang membawa saya kepada kecukupan fitrah bertuhan. Selalu khilaf dalam kehidupan seharian dan tak selalu kuat dalam melawan tabiat keburukan. Namun, insyaallah saya akan teruskan perjuangan mengumpul kekuatan benteng hati.

Maaf sekiranya yang pernah meminta saya membawa apa2 perbincangan spt usrah dan saya tolak. Maaf, saya belum bersedia dan saya masih perlu banyak belajar tentang tuhan saya. Saya masih belum boleh menolak kemungkaran di hadapan mata saya. Namun peganglah janji saya untuk membantu awak semua mencari tuhan kita dengan setiap kelebihan dan kekurangan yang ada pada saya. Insyaallah



jom solat sunat law student,

Nujum Masa Silam

Assalamualaikum,

I received a call from a friend yesterday. He wa one of my best friends in primary school. We haven't been contacting for almost 2 years. I did look for him on facebook and friendster, but i failed. He added me yesterday. I accepted and we chatted. Yes, im happy to hear somthing from him.

Kemudian, kami berbual melalui phone, dan apa yang dia ceritakan semuanya meruntunkan hati saya. Seolah-olah hati dibelah2 dgn pisau yang tajam dan semangat terpudar seperti air yang mengalir. Perlahan.

Benar, aku tidak maksum. Aku insan biasa. Namun, mendengarkan mereka bergelumang dengan dosa membuatkan aku hendak lari menyelamatkan mereka. Ahh.. kenapa boleh sampai macam ini?! Dan mengapa insan terdekat pun terjebak sekali?! Allah, tolonglah bukan insan itu, yang sepanjang hidupku sampai hari ini, aku berdoa untuk perubahannya. Moga semua bersabar.

Kenangan lama dan tanggungjawab mencengkam.

Kali ini, benar2 aku terlihat keruntuhan umat aku sendiri. Aku dari kampung, aku berkawan dengan mereka yang tak tinggi pelajarannya. Dan tanpa pengetahuan, manusia tidak tercapai kejayaan. Juga tanpa iman, manusia benar2 tiada panduan. Ya Allah, berilah mereka hidayahMu. izin kan aku bersama mereka di dalam syurgamu Tuhan. Amin

Kerana aku bersahabat keranaMu, sahabatku adalah sahabat keimanan, tak akan aku lepaskan tangan mereka walaupun di hadapan neraka. Ku tarik mereka kembali bersamaku ke syurga. Allah, kau Maha Pemurah dan Maha Penyayang.

Bismillahirrahman nirrahim
Assalamualaikum mak abah juga keluarga,

Semoga berada di dalam kandungan sihat sejahtera di samping keluarga yang tercinta. Jangan terkejut pula anakanda menghantar emel ini. Kerinduan serta mencari redha Ilahi juga yang membuatkan anakanda terpanggil menghantarnya.
Hari ini, pada tanggal 2 februari, kembali lagi hari kelahiran anakanda ke dunia, keluar dari keselesaan berada dalam perlindungan perut mak. Terima kasih mak kerana sudi lahirkan anakanda ke dunia. oh, sudah 21 rupanya!
Kemudian, terlihat abah pula. Kepimpinan abah mendidik dan menjaga keluarga memang ain hormati. Sepanjang penghidupan ain disisi abah, anakanda tak pernah kenal erti begitu susah. Terima kasih abah.

Sepanjang ain berjauhan dengan mak dan abah juga abg-abg, akak dan adik- adik yang tercinta, sejak di taylors, ain kenal erti kasih sayang. Kasih sayang yang tak pernah putus dan tak pernah kering. Rindu ain membahang bila menuntut di taylors. Harap mak dan abah faham kenapa ain selalu pulang waktu itu.
Sesungguhnya, satu cabaran yang besar meninggalkan anda semua di sana. Andai diberi pilihan, ain sentiasa berdoa untuk tetap menetap disisi mak dan abah sampai bila-bila.

Adik-adik semua, hari lahir kita bukanlah suatu penghargaan kepada kita, namun ianya adalah satu penghargaan kepada Allah kerana memberikan kita sehirup nafas untuk meneruskan hidup serta menambah amal sebelum kembali kepada dia. Hari lahir juga adalah suatu penghargaan kepada mak dan abah yang sudi menjaga kita.

Mak abah,
ain minta dihalalkan makan minum,pakaian serta semua yang mak dan abah pernah korbankan untuk ain, masa ain kecil sampai dewasa hingga sampai ain kembali padanya. Ain berusaha menjadi anak yang sentiasa mencari redha Allah melalui kasih sayang kita. Maafkan ain kerana tak pernah membanggakan mak abah, namun ain janji ain akan menjadi anak yang solehah. Insyaallah.

Tuhan pernah berjanji dalam surah Al-Rad ayat 23 yang orang yang beriman akan masuk ke dalam syurga Adn bersama keluarga sampai ke anak cucu. insyaallah kita sama sama ke sana. Tak ada kebaikan yang lebih baik dari bersama keluarga menikmati keindahan syurga.

Akhir kata dari ain, selamat hari lahir ain!

Yang jauh lagi merindui,
sayang kerana Allah,

Nurulain Melan

Plus Minus + -

Assalamualaikum, aloha (:

update kali ini hanya sedikit refleksi dari satu perkara yang selalu saya fikirkan. Iaitu tentang PENGARUH dan DIPENGARUHI. Saya minta maaf jika posting kali ini membuatkan ada yang kurang enak membaca. Barangkali saya khilaf sebagai manusia kerana apa yang saya tulis ini tidak sesuai untuk dicakapkan di depan khalayak dan seperti tajuk di atas, plus minus saya pun sebahagian dari mereka yang berada di dalam kedua2 kelompok ini.

Saya melihatkan saban hari remaja2 Islam terutamanya Melayu (yang sentiasa menjadi central tumpuan saya) meningkat jumlah yang memakai veil (tudung). Alhamdulillah, kerana pemakaian tudung dan pemakaian cara modesty (sopan dan merendah diri) bukan sahaja menyelesaikan masalah penentuan pakaian wanita mengikut selera lelaki atau arus semasa, malah masalah keyakinan diri para wanita. (juga masalah2 dan isu2 lain)


Namun begitu, malangnya, di dalam kelompok pemakai veil itu sendiri ada gelombang yang pada pendapat saya tidak sihat kepada si pemakai2 veil ini.

Golongan PENGARUH ini dapat saya definiskan sebagai
- si pemakai yang dikurniakan kecantikan atau keyakinan diri oleh Allah Taala
- si pemakai yang kurang memahami konsep veil terutamanya jadi mengambil keputusan
utk membuat perubahan dan memulakan sesuatu trend yang baru
- si pemakai yang sukakan perubahan
- Si pemakai yang moden dan plus minus seperti kumpulan2 di atas
- Para penjual veil2 yang cantik2 yang mempunyai pengaruh dan rekaan yang menarik.
- Bisikan syaitan dll.

Golongan ini secara langsungnya juga tidak langsung, menjadi reference bagi kumpulan seterusnya untuk melihat cara pemakaian yang harus mereka ikuti. Malangnya, inilah gelombang yang saya maksudkan.


Untuk menjelaskan gelombang ikutan negatif ini, dapat saya definisikan sebagat:
- Pemakaian tudung yang singkat (bukan pula saya maksudkan yang kita perlu memakai tudung yang labuh dan tidak bertrend)
- Pemakaian tudung bersama pakaian yang tidak menutup aurat atau terlalu ketat (seperti, baju separa lengan, jeans yang ketat, mahupun hanya berselipar yang sangat menampakkan susuk kaki dan terkadang nampak sungguh tidak kemas)
- Pemakaian tudung mengikut trend

Tudung2 ini semakin popular di kalangan para remaja kita, dan tidak terkecuali remaja tempat di mana perintah veil diturunkan (melalui pengamatan saya)


Kemudian, kelompok DIPENGARUHI ini amatlah mudah dipengaruhi oleh kelompok PENGARUH oleh beberapa sebab. dan tidak terkecuali saya juga walaupun saya berusaha utk tetap dengan cara saya.

Antara sebab melalui pengamatan saya adalah:
- Kurangnya pemahaman konsep veil itu sendiri walaupun sudah sekian lama mempelajari akan hukum tuhan ini
- Tiada kesungguhan untuk berperang dengan keinginan untuk dipengaruhi terutamanya si pemakai mungkin pernah atau sudah mempunyai basic yang cukup semasa bersekolah contohnya, pelajar yang bertudung labuh semasa menuntut di bangku sekolah
- Kurangnya keyakinan diri untuk berpakaian dengan cara biasa terus langsung mudah dipengaruhi oleh kelompok pengaruh yang mempunyai rupa paras dan trend veil yang berlainan.
- Sukakan perubahan
- Menyokong para penjual dengan belian dan pemaikaian trend veil berkenaan
- Bisikan syaitan dll.


Rumusan:
Trend veil masa kini tidak disangkal amat menarik serta mendapat tempat bagi penilaian orang biasa. Namun begitu, ternyata, ini bercanggah dengan apa yang digariskan oleh Islam. Saya mengingatkan kepada semua terutamanya diri saya sendiri agar tidak mudah terpengaruh dengan ikutan dan gelombang masyarakat. Latihlah diri supaya menilai plus minus sesuatu gelombang sebelum menerima dan mengikutinya.

saya bagi contoh sedikit untuk reference (jika ada yang tidak memahami)







so, satu cukup. sbb saya pasti anda faham.
Maaf lagi sekali, dan Assalamualaikum (:

Apabila dia datang kepada-Ku dalam keadaan berjalan seperti biasa, nescaya Aku akan datang kepadanya dalam keadaan berlari-lari anak" (HR-MUSLIM)
