Teka Teki Elham Pulak

Mula-mula, Abu Bakar cuba bagi soalan yang susah dijawab...

"Teacher, if a person lie on the bed, will he tell true or lie?"
"One more teacher, If Apple company happens to build cars, will they build Windows with it?"

Pening, campur kelakar....
Lepastu, Elham pulak,

"Teacher, what food zombies hate the most?"

          "Vegetables?"

No!

         "But zombies don't eat right? They just infect others"

No!

         "Give up. I don't know"

Okay. Zombie doesn't like fast food

          "Why So?"

Because they are slow. They don't like fast



p/s:

O, Abu bagi lagi soalan pening.

"If you are using Samsung Galaxy smartphone, are you the Guardian of the Galaxy?"


May my brain have enough rest for the next class session......

The Muslim Initiative Debate: Islam and Feminism: Compatible or conflicting?

Is there any feminism concept in Islam?
Is liberalization of Islam, still Islam...
 Does secularisation in feminism, somehow taking us off the right Islamic tracks...

This wonderful Debate by Zara Faris is wonderful... click the link below for wonderful and enlightening summary. And, you may as well click on the other link to see the full version of the debate between Zara and Marina Mahathir.

MasyaAllah, wonderful and eye opening input... need to spread it here as well...




We often see the life through our own lenses.  How can we sees the beauty of life through Islam, when we care less to even open up the Quran?

Secularization by muslim often involved those with the shallowest knowledge of Islam and it's prophet.

May Allah have Mercy.

Spouse


Mom worried sick about my age and keep on asking if I happen to have any ‘you-know-who’ gentleman in my life. Basically in her kampung, getting married in the early 20’s is a must. At my age now, I look like a granny to her. 
 
My nephew just got a son on my birthday this year, therefore I am… after all, a granny.
Married or not, I am a granny now.

 In life, different people have different opinions regarding spouse.

My mom sees spouse as guardian. Replacing her role, as a mother to take care of me...

 My close friends, sees spouse as a good-looking gentleman that could stare at them and keeps on telling them how beautiful they are. Always with the love-expressing thing. Romantic stuff huh?

My small nephews and niece sees my future spouse as their additional source of duit raya….. 
kids!


But, How I see it?
I see spouse as a life mate, whom I could sneak and wear his socks, if I misplaced mine…


l.o.l





p/s: Sharing life is not an easy task. If both share the same purpose (Akhirah mission), then it's a relationship worth fighting for….

Cabaran mempertahan prinsip hidup untuk memberi...

Note to self: Tiada hidup yang tidak dilanda badai, tiada nikmat yang dikecap tanpa merasakan pahitnya didikan ujian... 

dan

jodoh itu rahsia Allah.... jadi agak pening kalau tanya dengan manusia...

Sekian...

Erruptions...

Amarah....

Nak marah....
Ter-marah...

Marah biasanya ada simptom... 

Dia datang dengan gigilan tubuh, muka merah, jantung kencang, hati menggelegak, fikiran pendek, dan mata hati yang mula kabur dan hampir buta...

Sabar biasanya ada bersama-sama marah.... cuma bila isi hati mula dimuntahkan keluar dengan lahar kata-kata kasar nan maha membara, sabar akan pergi tak kembali......

Sabar hanya kembali semula.....

Sehingga lahar kemarahan habis dimuntahkan dan tubuh mula sejuk semula...

Cuma, kali ini, sabar tidak kembali berseorangan.... dia kembali membawa sekali rakan yang tidak disenanginya.... 


'penyesalan'....



Tammat, drama jam 7 petang bertajuk, "pinggan tak dingin, nasi tak retak" dengan lagu soundtrack drama "Ayam Mee"..


I know....

Merapu right?
 
Just ignore this entry....

p/s: fingers have to type, what the heart wants to say.....

Ujian Besar, Bukan untuk Orang Besar...


Jumpa gambar dalam folder lama…. Alkisah lama…

Tau pun senyap.....


Jadi si kecik ni tak mahu duduk diam. Bising, waktu ujian. Ramai yang terganggu. Bukan itu sahaja, tambah rencah melawan cakap cikgu pulak. Memang nak kena masak kari budak sorang ni, hari ni.

Nah, cikgu parking kan awak sebelah abang sado. Masing-masing bertentang mata sesaat dua, terus diam seribu bahasa.
Cara kita didik dengan bahasa kehidupan….
Ketegaq sangat…
…………………………………..
Pelajaran buat yang tua…  
Jadi, kita ni, ada yang tak suka nak solat, kurang gemar dengan majlis ilmu, siap ada yang memperlekeh agamawan atas nama liberalisasi. Satu hari, Allah letak kita sebelah singa, sesombong mana pun lagak kita, akan terus menadah tangan memohon doa…
Cara Allah nak didik kita, dengan Keagungannya…… sebab,
Kita pun degil juga…

Faham ke idok?

Sign of a time.... of Harry Style's mean, according to me...

Not very sure who composed it... couldn't find it anywhere...
'Sherlock mode: ON'

still.... couldn't find it...

it's good song though... according to me...
 .................................................
 Just stop your crying
It's a sign of the times
Welcome to the final show
Hope you're wearing your best clothes

You can't bribe the door on your way to the sky
You look pretty good down here
But you ain't really good

 chorus:
We never learn, we've been here before
Why are we always stuck and running from
The bullets, the bullets?
We never learn, we've been here before
Why are we always stuck and running from
Your bullets, the bullets?

Just stop your crying
It's a sign of the times
We gotta get away from here
We gotta get away from here
Just stop your crying
It'll be alright
They told me that the end is near
We gotta get away from here

Just stop your crying
Have the time of your life
Breaking through the atmosphere
And things are pretty good from here

Remember, everything will be alright
We can meet again somewhere
Somewhere far away from here

We don't talk enough
We should open up
Before it's all too much
Will we ever learn?
We've been here before
It's just what we know

 --------------------------

stop crying in the stanza, probably indicates the singer's act of consoling his woman of how some thing are not worth crying for...

welcome to the final show, and putting the best clothes.. he somehow ensure his beloved to embrace the hideous reality as its a sign of a time (the changing of values*)

you look pretty good down here, but ain't really good... this verse explain how she might always be beautiful in the singers' eyes, but not in the eyes of the people today, whom might portray decency as backwards...

 you cant bribe the door on your way to the sky.... now this line had things to do with death and how we couldn't control the journey of our soul... death

in the chorus stanza, singer saying that human often commit the same mistakes over and over again. 

the end is near and we gotta get away from here signifies how the singer sees the era of a hideous reality begin and beg his woman to leave this world (**refer).... as it is never a blissful world to live in anymore....

Breaking through the atmosphere  and things are pretty good from here ....now this part seems to show the singers' persuading his woman how death is somehow a better way to escape the current world.... and weird, the way he explains it, as if he is dead, and his soul came down consoling his beloved to join him, when he ensures, the other life looks better.... hurmmmm.....

we don't talk enough and should open up.... inculcating the right values are very important, and preserving it in is vital in creating a better life quality, yet dominations of self-centeredness and ignorant lifestyle had somehow left goodness to dry and die... and he continues...'will we ever learn'..... again, we makes the same mistakes....


*some decency seen absurd..... it's a sign of a time....
woman preserving their dignity, seen as un-modern conservatives.....
sticking with modesty and more covers for women means oppressing.... 


**we are repeating the exact same history that man had previously did once....
seeking power by killing others.... we often aware, the impact is severe... 
the sadist bloodshed left scars for generations to come....


feel free to add and critique.... it's a good song though.... i guess...

Bayan Linnas and La Tahzan, of Ali-Imraan

Bismillah,

Eid Mubarak,
Felt cheerful to share. Might sound mundane, but still, I am enthusiast to type it all out...

So a book written by Dr.Aidh Al-qarni was one of the best selling copies in the world when I was doing my degree. It was called La Tahzan. I was and is, still, one of the forever fan of it. The book was thick, so don't ask about the price. But still, it was the best selling books for quite some time. Up to an extent, the publisher break it into a mini thin numbered-encyclopedic version, to make it more affordable for every ‘sengkek student’ like me to own one. 

 
I would call it a master-heart-piece. Touching the sinners hearts with beautiful words. I was quite obsess with the word ‘La Tahzan’ in those old days, and spent quite some time to look up in the Quran to seek which verse consist of that particular word and manage to happily memorized it until today. Sound silly, but it becomes my personal  soul-treating verse that cures the sadness in my heart. I bet it affect others whom read it in the Holy kitab as well. 

It was Suratul Ali-Imran verse number 139


وَلَا تَهِنُوا وَلَا تَحْزَنُوا وَأَنْتُمُ الْأَعْلَوْنَ إِنْ كُنْتُمْ مُؤْمِنِينَ
So do not weaken and do not grieve, and you will be superior if you are [true] believers.

I came across it again this morning, and started writing as all the previous eight year’s memories flashes back. But this time, I was pleased, even more with what I read.


You know, I often curious about where ‘Bayan Linnas’ words came out from, too. In which surah and verse. I am a non Arabic speaker whom in love with some unique articulations of beautiful words in the quran.  

So I dig in the quran and web, to seek ‘Bayan Linnas’ and it’s meaning .... just like what I did previously with ‘La Tahzan’(childish grown ups huh? lol). 

I couldn’t find it, or I must have missed it out... 

So this morning, I came to notice that the verse that consist of ‘Bayan Linnas’ was there right before ‘La Tahzan’.  It was Ali-Imran verse 138. 



هَٰذَا بَيَانٌ لِلنَّاسِ وَهُدًى وَمَوْعِظَةٌ لِلْمُتَّقِينَ

This [Qur'an] is a clear statement to [all] the people and a guidance and instruction for those conscious of Allah .


What a cheerful, small, but precious present....

Note to self: We missed out small things, not because it is small....  It’s simply because we aren’t looking for it...

Spirit of INFIRU

Masing-masing berjuang dengan cara sendiri..... 

Tubuh, pasti letih,
Tenaga, pasti habis,
Idea mungkin kering,
Hati, mungkin sedih,
Wang, mungkin kurang,
Sokongan mungkin hilang,

 Berbekalkan semangat INFIRU...........

Berangkatlah....

p/s: It matters not, whether our pain is seen by others or not... Allah's acceptance of it matters the most!

Oleh kerana Islam mendidik kita berdisiplin dengan ibadah wajib, maka uruslah urusan dunia sebaiknya dan dengan disiplin yang sama. Pasal kita ni pum pam pum pam letih, duit habis, untuk benda sia-sia. 

*sepuluh jari tunjuk muka sendiri*

Sekian dimaklumkan....

Salam syawal!

When the doors of heaven open wide......


Taqabbalallahu minna wa minkum all!!
When you miss Ramadan,

You have to listen to this poem with open heart.... 

When the doors of heaven open wide......
Hell is locked, and devils inside,
When syaaban month strikes 29,
The muslim search the sky to find...
Ramadhan, the new moon approaches,
with Taqwa, blessings and good hope......

When doors of heaven open wide.....

By Abu Taubah




Taqabbalallahu minna wa minkum.....
May Allah accept ( the good deeds) from me and you...

Senyum Kambing Ramadhan...


 بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَنِ الرَّحِيم

Another gloomy Ramadhan morning....
Although gloomy, udara cukup tenang, segar dan nyaman. Tenteram, and the obvious disadvantage of such scene ialah..... mendatangkan rasa mengantuk yang amat.

Sedar tak sedar, kita dah hampir dengan 10 hari terakhir ramadhan, dan ramai yang sudah mula beriktikaf. Mulut pun dah kurang bau, sebab badan dah detox banyak dengan amalan berpuasa. Bibir pun dah mula mengelupas dan merekah, asbab hidrasi.  Tapi lebih sihat, InsyaAllah!

Kalau kawan-kawan kita senyum kambing jangan marah, sebab bila bibir merekah ni boleh membantutkan senyuman. It happens to me this morning.

Senyum itu sunnah... 
walaupun dengan bibir yang merekah...

Teruskan beribadah....



 I told you it is a gloomy morning....

Seandainya fikiran kita kusut, angkatlah wajah menghadap lapangnya langit dan bertasbih.... akan datang lapangnya hati. Tak tipu.

Awan berarak pergi......
Ramadhan juga.....
 
['.'] Jzzk.

Putting the fire off! "Betul bang, saya memang bodoh"



بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَنِ الرَّحِيم


So nafisah kurang ceria pada suatu hari. Sebab dia hampir bergesel dengan motor yang amat laju melintasinya dari belakang ketika ingin mengundurkan kenderaan. Abang motor yang laju mengelak dengan pantas pabila boot Honda Accord muncul perlahan-lahan ke atas jalan raya. 

Disangkanya sudah tamat kisah kejutan abang motor dipagi hari kerana tiada kemalangan jiwa dan motor pun sudah menderum pergi, namun sangkaan Nafisah meleset. Abang motor berwajah merah padam kemarahan, patah balik dan mengejar lalu mengarahkannya berhenti.

Dimarahnya adik manis ni ini bertubi-tubi…. 

“Nafisah jawab apa pula dekat abang tu?” geram saya mendengarnya…

“Kita cakap kan….Betul bang, saya salah. Lepastu abang tu cakap kita bodoh kak!

Lah! Lepastu? 

Then kita pun jawab….

“Betul bang saya memang bodoh”  ….

“Dah tu?” teruja saya nak mendengar pengakhiran kisah nya

“Abang tu bengang kak, dan dia pun tak tau nak cakap apa dah…” gelak Fisah….

Life Lesson:
Sometime, we only need a few humble and silly words to put the fire off…..
Rather long speeches to win the conversation…
