0 The Conflict Between Truth And Falsehood

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Last time, we had an interesting discussion during usrah at one of our members' apartment in Hayyu Thamin. The discussion circulated around truth and falsehood, and the conflict that happens in between them. This is a very common issue presenting in the society, particularly among Muslim in Malaysia, also including other Muslim all around the world.

The current world we are living in is not painted as white and black. There is so many grey zone in between. Looking at religious texts as white and black is a kind of dangerous approach, as one could easily put labels on different groups or people.

The distinction is not between believers and non-believers. That is quite apparent, but when it comes to different groups among Muslims, dubiety starts to knock the door. Which group is the truest, or nearest to the truth? We have no one to give final word or to decide which of them is the best. Unlike during the era of prophet, it was obvious that whoever with the side of prophet was on the right side while whoever against prophet was against the truth.

Sometimes, we are convinced with our side after being explained all the rationale behind every actions. Then, when the other side gives its rationale, it eventually makes us think again.

All of these doubts and ambiguities oftenly make people being confused and decide not to participate at all afterhand, especially when this issue is being used by certain parties for any personal reasons.

So, what to do?

Keep learning and searching for the truth. Always be open for any kindness from any sources. Hold your words and stop judging people. Finally, always pray that Allah guides us to the truth. He never wastes every effort aiming His redha.

اللهم أرنا الحق حقا وارزقنا اتباعه وأرنا الباطل باطلا وارزقنا اجتنابه

0 Rules

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

'Rules are made to be broken'

My professor likes to repeat this phrase. As rules are made to be a reference, they are also to be broken. In terms of education, the highest standard should be taught. In terms of practical, some of the rules are not applied but students should be aware of the ceiling above their head.

When I was in secondary school, one of my usrahmate brought his phone to school. It was obviously not allowed for students to bring a phone to school. But if it was not because of that, we would not be able to contact our naqib to have an usrah.

People who fight for justice all over the world. Many of them go against the rules in the place they are living in. Just have a look at Muslim Brotherhood members in Egypt who have been jailed and tortured for going against the rules of Egypt's tyrannical government.

It is very irony. 

These people teach me one very important lesson, it is to not being coward to go against the rules or the norm, as long as it is the truth. 

How can we be different if we wake up, sleep and do the same things like others do?

0 Thde Resuylt

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

The result of what we do depends on how much effort we give on it. The more serious we are, the better would be the result.

Expect failure if we keep playing around.

0 Past

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

I am missing Mansoura. The place, restaurants, stadium and mostly, the people. A brief visit might satisfy this feeling.

0 What We Have This New Year

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

I cannot stop laughing seeing myself few years back. How immature I was in thought and action. What funnier is to see the same features in the juniors. Haha. It is undeniably true that wisdom comes as time passed and experience gathered. The only thing I would miss from my younger self is the eagerness and enthusiasm.

2017 is less than 2 days apart. As the Imam in Bustan Mosque reminded during the khutbah of Jumuah prayer, increase a year in age equals being a year closer to death. It is not a good news to become older. The body cells are becoming weaker as oxygen radicals accumulate. Calcifications are everywhere, vessels become narrower, joints become more rigid. But the most important change is having more responsibilities. 

Age comes with responsibilities.

0 Function

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Today's morning class with Dr Hussein, as usual, gave me an energy to complete the rest of the day enthusiastically. He knocked my mind to make me think in a better way, just like he always did.

"What is the function of a wound?"

No one answered.

"To heal. Yes, to heal,"

" If a wound loses its function, healing may not occur. It is a wound failure,"

The worst thing to happen in life is when we lose our function, or even worse, we have no idea what is our function. This is exactly what is happening in the world. People has lost their functions. They do what they want. They bomb others. They kill others. They take others rights. They lie to everybody.
