1 A Question With No Answer

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

I always wonder, why akhawat always outnumber ikhwah, in every ocassions and localities. The question is frequently asked but never being answered seriously. I don’t think it is just about personality difference. Planning, commitment, brotherhood, seriousness. All of them should be considered. I don’t know until when this question will be asked and answered with the same script, or even worse be made as a joke.

Letting go a responsibility is a relief when you have done it great. Otherwise, it is a burden that will make you fell  unsatisfied.

0 The Day

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

On this day, 24 years ago, I was born in a hospital in a small town in a state named Selangor. My family has always been telling me that celebrating particular date is not as important as making a progress in life. It is not necessarily to be celeberated, but more vitally as a reminder that aging is taking its process.

I still am learning and trying to be a good human being, minimising mistakes, asking forgiveness for all mistakes done.

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

After going to many kampung in Terengganu, namely Kampung Surau Haji Daud, Kampung Bukit, Kampung Atas Tol, Kampung Chendering, Kampung Kubang Ikan and many more, certainly the most beautiful and the best is my own playground, Kampung Sungai Kantan.

Home sweet home.

0 No Escape

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Some things have no escape from being thought about. After repeatedly trying to convince the mind to defer, the soul raises it back. The fact that nothing can be done makes it having more reason to think about. Nobody wants to be bothered by buzzing thoughts of uncertainty, especially when exam is going to be soon. The feeling of insecure is of multifactorial that needs just a small dose of reasurrance from the right person.

It is between two big walls. The thought will keep buzzing while not much, or nothing, can be done.

Writing down what the soul is saying not to seek for a solution, rather trying to tone it down.

0 Change

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

I do not know why. The word 'change' for Malays, is actually quite new in their(our) vocabularies. Since the independence, Malays are more or less the same particularly in the way of thinking. We have not evolved much, loving to remain in the comfort state we are currently in.

Unlike Chinese and Indians, they are more versatile and willing to make a change. In politics, for example, MCA and MIC were the most popular parties for Chinese and Indians during the early years after the independence. As time passes, corruption after corruption, lies after lies, they move to another parties as in DAP and GERAKAN. As for Malays, UMNO is always the choice. The ones who voted for UMNO before are the one who are going to do the same today. The same goes to PAS. The voters are the same persons. After the parents pass away, the children will continue the culture.

Knowing the fact that politics is not white and black, what is right today may be wrong tomorrow, today's enemy can be tomorrow's friend, change is inevitable. I do not want to point which party is the best as it is everyone's right to choose. What bothers me is the willingness of our people to get out from the comfort zone when necessary. We love to look at the past history to unaccurately justify what is apparently wrong today. UMNO was the one who brought merdeka to Malaysia, we must appreciate them by always giving votes to them despite what happen. PAS is the first islamic party in Malaysia, every true muslim must always choose PAS.

In discussion of fiqh, one can only follow Al-Imam As-Syafie. Who follows other Imam will be labelled as Wahabi. If you do not recite qunut during Fajr prayer, everybody will suspiciously stare at you. Praying after accidentally touch an opposite gender without redo an ablution is unacceptable. Ironically, in discussion of aqidah, we give more space to be different, in which we should be more strict.

In Egypt, Malays are living in their small community. We do not really mix with Egyptians. We build our own apartments, mosques and groceries. We only join one student association despite having dozens of associations.

This pattern of thought, unfortunately, delays our development. We are having fun in a small world that we create having thought that we are doing good while people around us do not even feel our presence.

If I were to be a politician, which I used to dream of, one of the very first intervention I would make in our education is to get rid of this mentality.

Qouting from a senior politician, "In politics, person or party is not important, what more important is the objective," I completely agree with this politically wise statement. If we do not move and make changes, we will surely be left behind.

0 Purity Of Life

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Is everything we see today real? 

The foods we eat, are they genuine? 

Even the life we live in, is it still pure?

Sometimes, I feel like living in an isolated countryside, away from people just to have a fine life. Clean from any polutions, be it in food, air or thoughts. Slowly but surely, consuming bad foods, impairs body functions in various ways.

In the middle of poverty and lack of wisdoms, people still concern about their physical appearance. Everybody wants to look perfectly beautiful. Everyone is obsessed with the thought that physical appearance is the main reason for happiness, despite knowing very well the phrase 'do not judge a book by its cover'. Beauty products overpass moral and intellectual products. We can hardly mention millionare who sells books. On the other hand, most of beauty products entrepreneurs are having money flowing under their feet.

What kind of world we are actually living in?

Women are the main subject of discussion. Pornography fills every ads. Women bodies are exploited to attract buyers. Rape news are our daily snacks to an extent that we feel hopeless. Few days before, there was a news of a seven year boy raped a six year old girl! The world is seriously going mad.

Needless to say, family institution is overlooked. Boys and girls are seeking only pleasures without wanting to be accountable!

Who should think about all these problems?

On whom we can rely on?

Politicians? Religious authority? Goverment? 

Life has lost its purity. People are only trying to meet society's demands and expectations in the hope that, in doing so, they would be happy although the fact that they would not. We need to get back the radar we were given before we threw it away as we saw things that we thought were better.

0 Words

 بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Words can bring love or hate. 

Two people may fall in love and be together because of words. Two nations may declare war against each other because of words.

The most powerful single gift to a prophet from Allah is in the form of words.

To utter good words is not an easy act to do. To encourage and give compliment sometimes is more difficult than to criticise and condemn. It is an art, to speak good and be silent when words are not necessary.

Let's learn to speak nice words, encourage others, and avoid clashes.

0 Back For Good

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

The hardest part of being a murabbi is to release mutarabbi and pass it to another murabbi. At that time, I just realised too many rights had not been fulfilled. May Allah forgive all my mistakes and flaws and give them a much better murabbi.




It certainly would not be an easy job.

0 Ramadhan

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Ramadhan never fails to give me something. This year's Ramadhan, particularly, is very special as it would be the last in Egypt. Ramadhan in this blessed land has given me a new dimention of going through the holy month. It taught me how to appreciate this month when it is describe as the month of Al-Quran as it really is. 

The best moment is the night. First of all because we can eat and drink, so that you have more energy. Second is the prayers. In this month only we can have the worldview of Al-Quran as we go through the whole book as imam would recite every night.

This is truly a blessing from Allah.

Isolation and tears. Those are the themes for this Ramadhan.

اللهم بارك لنا فى هذا الشهر العظيم

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?

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.

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

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