0 Kun Anta

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

It is typical. When something weird, or I may consider it stupid, appears in the social media, it will be undoubtly viral. Dubsmash is the latest I guess. Contrarily, the more important issue like Rohingya refugee becomes the least to be concerned. Poor people. We rather choose to share stupid things.

Another viral weird thing is the song Kun Anta. The song is not but the videos of its song cover by girls, especially the tudung labuh girl. Despite the fact that the song has its own quality, it is the girl that makes it viral. Eventually, people start to forget GST, 1MDB and DS Najib issues that they strongly fight against. Humans are easily distracted when they have no clear and ultimate aim to chase.

Later, all of these issues will be completely forgotten. After a while another issue will appear. That is how the cycle repeats.

We need to choose what to read and to watch. Taking everthing is not the right way.

0 Aim High

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Of course we should do that. Rasulullah said that if we want to ask for jannah, ask for the highest. The problem here is to have the determination to stay along the route towards it. I want to graduate with mumtaz, being the best intern, taking MCRP and being a subspecialist doctor by the age of 35. Then to own my own hospital which is the most cozy and comfortable hospital in Malaysia. I also want to do charity, giving free services and help people around. I dream all these. The aim is crystal clear but the path is still dimly lit.

The challenge is to create a synergy between the dream and the path to achieve it. Having discussion with experienced people has taught me that learning from others is extremely important as to not wasting time and to be better than the previous generation. We do not want to create a plateau generation, or even worse a declining one.

Despite all that, faith is the most important factor. It may sound cliché but it is like the oxygen that is always been forgotten its presence and importance. Khalid Al-Walid r.a once, before he embraced Islam, made fun of the muslim for they were promised to be given Rom and Persian, which were the two biggest nations at that time. Ironically, after Khalid r.a embraced Islam, he was the one who did the thing he made fun of. We just totally blind on what exists next to us. I still remember how could I be so brave and enthusiastic that I wanted to put all the Form 3 male student, when I was  Form 5, in the usrah system. I still can't understand from where those hammasah came.

Talking about future, the key is to have faith and do not rush. Then comes the strategy, technique, etc. It sounds quite awkward for me to talk about this since I achieve nothing to be proud of, but I am saying this based on what I learn from people who have preceded me. When having a discussion with youths, mostly they offer strategies as a take-home message. On the contrary, the elderly usually stress on the need to have faith. Merge these two and the light is just a step ahead.

0 Focus

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Do not estimate the power of focus. A person can only be extraordinarily success when focus is there. Focus in not just a particular time, study for example, but focus as the worldview of life. In life, focus is a need, not a choice. Doing too many things in a time makes none of the single things becomes a revolutionary finding.

If we take a close look on the history of Renaissane, the starting point of the success of West world was after the French Revolution in 1789. What happened from that moment was people started to focus on what they were doing. Prior revolution life was restricted by the church. People could not do as they liked and everything just became stagnant. Post revolution revealed an ultimate liberty for the western people and they started to focus their thoughts on physics, economy and politics without being distracted by the church.

The very fundamental of our Ad-Deen is the syahadah لا إله إلا الله. Just look at the first thing before declaring Allah is the God. We exclude all other insignificant stuffs bothering our life. Then we can completely subject the entire life to Him. That is how things should be.

University. Why must we go to university to have a degree? Why don't we just study anywhere without bordered by time and particular syllabus? The answer is focus. You can't be a doctor if you study engineering and economy at the same time. You will lose focus and eventually none of the studies will give a fruitfull result. There must be a particular course in a particular university at a particular time.

I always wonder why couldn't the companions do da'wa and live in luxury. Mus'ab b Umair for example. Now I know the answer is to be focus. Doing da'wa with so many distractions from all the luxury would make him not doing anything.

Living in 21st century, so many insignificant things running out there. Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, movies, games and the number is increasing. All of those things keep distracting us from the main actual goal. If we do not cease all those distractions immediately, we never can go far.

Do not estimate the power of focus. It does matter.
