0 Agent Of Usrah

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Yes. Usrah. For Malaysian community in Egypt, it is not just a mere word but an obligatory for everyone to at least have one regardless the name used. I personally knew the real meaning of usrah during the last quarter of my secondary school years. Of course it was present in the school yet I am talking about the real system at the first it was introduced by the founder to the community. I felt the difference and perhaps you too would feel the same if you did as what I did.

As for the system, it would be a very boring discussion for the people who like heavy materials for it is too simple to understand. You now why? Because we don't actually care much on the discussion but we do care what to do after the discussion. If someone joins usrah and he doesn't do and move in the society and does as his murabbi, surely he would be bored and inevitably leave the usrah. The challenge is not only to maintain the attendance but to move the idea in the community.

One of the biggest mistakes done by these people is being an usrah secularist. An angle during usrah and the opposite during not usrah. If this happens, the real idea of the system will not succeed because it doesn't be a factory to make people who dare to do the grunt works of Islam or I like to name it as the agent of usrah. What is agent? Someone who acts on behalf of another. We don't want them to wear shirts or pants belong to their groups but to show to the people how the system actually works and succeeds to build amazing persons. The best part is they have nothing so called interest in doing these grunt works for everything will be granted after death where the ultimate glory is present.

So search for it wherever you are!

0 Don't Kill Your Self Esteem By Giving Early High Expectation

بسم الله الرحمن الحيم

Don't believe it until you see by your own naked eyes. In these technology days, informations may come from everywhere that you don't even know. What happens from the most remote area of the world can be percieved by the media. Right statement can be twisted to a totally ridiculous one. Even sometimes you can't even believe what you see for it may be edited or disguised behind something. So horror.

What more dangerous is when we give early expectation before 100-percently sure what we are going to see. If it doesn't suit the actual state, it will tremendously throw away our self esteem. Should we come with nil expectation, no bias will be and everything is going to be fine. The seniors and people who have preceeded us are not always right. They may face different things. Indeed lessons need to be taken from the past experiences but also has to be balanced with nil expectation.

Sometimes things are just going wrong because we have too ideal goal from the time we have our first contact. At the end of the day, the goal never achieved.

2 Weird Election

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Usually when someone becomes a nominee for a particular election, he/she does so as to win and bring something to serve the community. At the time he/she makes the decision he/she should already have support from at least number of persons in the community. Having said that, the election that currently running in my place now is quite weird. The nominee is partially forced to participate and I am forced to be the penyokong

So irony.

0 Don't Be Too Hard On Your Thought

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Everbody has their own way of thinking and solving problems. The difference is something inevitable, it has to be encountered fairly. A wise man will see every obstacles before him as a steeping stone to do and be better. On the other hand, a small minded man only expects good things to indulge him all the way of his journey. Being in a peace, common-thought community is honestly very boring. No resistance, conflict nor dispute to be encountered. Usually the community will be passive and feel content with their possessions. A growing community has miscellaneous manners and contradictory activities but despite all that, this community grows faster for they always meet something new from the opposite sides.

We are not searching for mistakes nor differences, yet we are seeing and approaching the already present contrast as a diversity. We never find a place with no difference in thoughts, even the scholars have their debate. Just don't be too hard on your thought. Be consistent and have your principles but be tolerant and open minded. In the future we will surely see and meet these people again who we strongly resist and this time we will see them as partners for any reason. If we have no good relationship, how do we proceed our bigger agenda to build the country? If you can do it alone, silakan.

0 Egyptians And Arabs Are Good Friends

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

I have few Arab friends. Yeah, it's friend not mere acquaintances. Excluding the ustaz and ustazah in the Markaz Lughah where I study my Arabic language, my landlord, former naqib and people in the mosques, I have an Egyptian friend and one from Somalia. I meet them almost everyday since everbody lives and works around the same place.

The younger is the Somali named Abdul Qadir. He is my junior in the university. I like to have coversations with him for it is in Arabic fusha (the original Arabic), easy to speak and understand. Went to his house once for a visit. His room was quiet unclean and unorganized. Yeah, normal for a guy. Despite of that, he is personally a tidy guy. Each time I see him, he is wearing a formal shirt.

The Egyptian is Ibrahim. He works in a building besides Bashandi restaurant. He does business in sports and some medical tools. Physically appeared as a good islamist with long beard and sometimes he is the imam in the Al-Hidayah mosque. He always has my respect. Since he memorize all the 30 juz of Al-Quran I am always reminded to do the same. Perk of being an Arab, you can easily remember and understand Al-Quran.

I still can't accept the norm of Malaysians in Egypt who don't want to be friends closely with the locals. One of the famous reasons is for safety. I completely agree with that but it doesn't have to be the barier that totally hinders our relationship with the locals. What the benefits of study in overseases if we don't mix and change thoughts, culture and language with others. Instead of having most of the time with persatuan, why don't we try to do something out of the norm? I also hate Egyptians generally but I do like to be friends with them.
