Air ini akan sampai di muara...

With the name of Allah the Most Gracious the Most Merciful..
Salam alaik to all readers... 


Air mengalir pasti ke muara kan?  Cuba lihat gambar di sungai di atas, banyak batu-batu yang saiznya bukan kecil dan pastinya menghalang laluan. Namun, air tak pernah berhenti mengalir sehingga di suatu saat ia tiba di laut. Hebatnya air...ia tetap berusaha mencelah batu, walau ada kalanya terpaksa berpisah dari aliran hanya kerana satu keyakinan iaitu, apabila berjaya tiba di muara, mereka pasti berkumpul kembali.

Jika direnungkan bezanya air yang mengalir dan air yang bertakung, air yang mengalir biasanya bersih dan jernih. Sebalinya, air apabila bertakung akan berkelodak, berlumut, busuk dan kotor. Jika diberi pilihan, sudah tentu kita lebih suka berada di tepi pantai atau beriadah di tepi sungai yang bersih dan jernih.

Hidup harus punya matlamat...

Kita harus belajar daripada alam. Persis air yang tetap mengalir, hidup dengan matlamat yang jelas dan azam yang kuat pasti sukar dipatahkan. Terbaru dalam ceramah Ustaz Azhar Idrus di Masjid Kubang Kerian, beliau ada mengingatkan supaya umat Islam tidak berputus asa. Islam tidak mengajar umatnya berputus asa. Jadi, apabila menghadapi kesukaran, kita seharusnya berbalik kepada Allah yang memegang setiap jiwa. Allah S.W.T berfirman di dalam surah Alam Nasyrah ayat ke-5 yang bermaksud:

"Kerana sesungguhnyasesudah kesulitan itu ada kemudahan"

Walau sesukar mana situasi anda, harungilah dengan jayanya. Contohilah air yang tetap mengalir. Allah S.W.T. ada menyebutkan di dalam al-Quran, surah Al-Baqarah ayat ke-74 yang bermaksud: 

"Kemudian setelah itu hatimu menjadi keras seperti batu, bahkan lebih keras lagi. Padahal diantara batu-batu itu sungguh ada yang mengalir sungai-sungai dari padanya dan diantaranya sungguh ada yang terbelah lalu keluarlah mata air dari padanya dan diantaranya sungguh ada yang meluncur jatuh, karena takut kepada Allah.

DO NOT LOOK DOWN OR FEEL DOWN

With the name of Allah the Most Gracious The Most Merciful... 
Salam alaik to all readers...

How's your day? And the most important is, how's your IMAN? My doodle today intended to ask all of you to do some reflection about our life... What i face everyday teach me a lot. From my own experiences, from my observation about my colleague, thinking about everyone around me..these push me to write something. Our attitude come from our 'akhlak' which is built up by strong faith and worship to Allah.


Sometimes, we think that we are good enough and look down on others. It is not a good attitude. Islam teach us to be moderate, do not look down on others. In the Quran, Allah said "And do not turn your face away from people (with pride), nor walk proudly on the earth, Allah does not love the proud and the boastful" [Luqman, 31:18].

For example, if you see beggars in the pavement, please do not easily judge them. I used to hear that these beggars are lazy. They like to ask money from others instead of finding a job. But for me, how far we are sure that they do not try? It is okay if we doesn't want to give them money. But we have no right to say something bad unless we know them and what they faced before. Maybe they tried to find job but nobody want them because of their imperfect condition. As a person who care, we can channel them to a job or at least encourage them to give another try. This is better than judging without trying to help. 

Same goes to Islam missionaries. There are special characteristics that must be built as a nuqaba' and the most important is the characteristic as an educator. If we are judging people instead of helping them, we may cause them to run away. Honestly, as a naqibah (still learning), I can't accept if people looks down on me when I still learn and adapt myself. People may ask how long I need time for adaptation. But actually, it is not about timing. It is about the way they pass the message. I don't like to be forced to do something even though it is good for me, but i might follow if they talk to me nicely. That is why I always say "what you say is not as important as how you say it." 








Sometimes, we feel so down. At that time we may feel that we are not as lucky as others. A Muslim also shouldn't have this kind of thinking. Allah loves us... Allah loves you. If we think that we already did our best, then leave it to Allah. He knows what is good and maybe He Plan something for us... "O you who have believed, seek help through patience and prayer. Indeed, Allah is with the patient" [Al-Baqarah, 2:153].

Everyone have their own strength and weakness. However, bad things are usually easy to be seen by others than good things. Once people see your weakness, they will easily tag you with a label. This is a norm of the society. If we take as a very important thing, then we might have problem to continue our life. Just think positive. If it is good, take it. If not, just throw it away. 

Easily to say than to do yeah?

Please know that, I never say it is easy...But believe me, it is not impossible. I'm a perfectionist. And I also is a very sensitive person. I want everything around me run smoothly. I also don't like any misunderstanding or any problem with peoples. Such a childish mind, right? For me, yes, we can hope for that, but the truth is we cannot expect that everything will go like what we want. Whether we accept it or object it. So, now...after everything happen to me, I'm trying to absorb anything as I can or just pretend that everything is okay until I forget it. 


Nothing is impossible when Allah is with us.. 
La tahzan, innallaha ma'ana...

BINA CINTA DENGAN MEMBERI



“What you give you get back”


Pernah dengar ayat ni? Mesti ramai yang biasa dengan ayat ni kan? Kalau diikutkan, banyak agama ada mengatakan tentang perkara ni…  Antara ayat lain yang memberi maksud yang lebih kurang sama:


“Treat people how you want to be treated”

“If you treat people well, then people will treat you the same”


Tapi kita mesti ingat, memberi bukan untuk menerima. Bila kita melakukan sesuatu, jangan pernah mengharapkan balasan. Jiwa tidak akan pernah puas jika kita mengharapkan setiap pengorbanan, kasih-sayang atau kebaikan yang kita bagi sentiasa mendapat balasan. 


MEMBERI CINTA


Memberi cinta sebenarnya tak mudah. Berapa ramai yang mencintai manusia lain dengan mengharapkan terbalasnya rasa itu. Berapa ramai pula yang kecewa bila cinta tak kesampaian. Dalam percintaan, akan ada pihak yang lebih banyak memberi . Orang yang lebih banyak cinta, dialah yang biasanya lebih banyak memberi. 


Cinta yang ikhlas bukanlah pada kata-kata atau luahan rasa semata. Tapi cinta yang suci itu terbukti dengan tindakan. “Love is a verb”. Tapi sering kita lihat, banyak cinta yang terkubur selepas pernikahan.  Pada awalnya rasa cinta itu dibaja dengan baik. Tapi akhirnya, masing-masing berfokus untuk menuntut hak masing-masing. Mereka lupa bahawa cinta perlu diberi bukannya dituntut. 


MEMBERI CINTA SEBELUM HALAL?


Cinta itu satu fitrah. Bila jatuh cinta, kawal hati agar tidak terleka dan terarah kepada maksiat. Bila fikiran melayang teringatkan dia, beristighfarlah…ingatlah kepada Pencipta dirinya. Jadikan cinta yang wujud sebagai jambatan menggapai redha Allah… bukan penyebab kemurkaan Allah. Jadikan cinta sebagai anugerah. Jangan jadikannya musibah.


CINTAKU UNTUKMU




Sering kawan-kawan bertanya “awak pernah jatuh cinta?”. Berat nak jawab soalan ni. Saya cuba mengelak sebab taknak menipu. Tapi bila didesak berkali-kali, satu jawapan ringkas yang mampu diberikan, “Cinta tu satu fitrah”. Jawapan ini pastinya mengundang pelbagai persoalan lain. Cukuplah saya mengatakan, cinta itu akan bertandang bila Allah menghendakinya. Cumanya, di saat diri ini belum bersedia akan kudiamkan segala rasa. Ada kalanya aku berpura-pura tidak mengerti. Diamku bukan kerana cuba menafikan tapi kerana mahu menjaga hati. Dan Jika ditakdirkan suatu hari engkau jodohku, akan kuberikan cinta milikmu. Tapi sekarang aku tak mampu meletakkan harapan untuk mencintaimu sebelum kukejar cinta Allah. Dan aku berdoa semoga Allah memelihara perasaan ini, melindungi diriku dan dirimu…

DON'T FORGET ALLAH

With the name of Allah... 
I just wanna share a song with everyone. I really like this song now... Thanx to my friend for introduce it to me. The music is almost the same as Maher Zain's. But actually, i like it because of the lyrics. The song remind me to Allah, my God. Sometimes, i think that this song is trying to say that we forget Allah, which is our mistake. But the way he telling us that we have done the mistake is acceptable. And then he remind us that we must back to Allah... Really nice... Lets hear the song and feel it with the heart.

 
DON'T FORGET ALLAH
(By : Farid Sanullah)

You're down and out
You just can't cope
You wanna shout
You lost all hope
On your knees, begging please
You turn and pray to find your way

Hey, you make du'a Allah's there
Whoever you are coz he cares
Then you forget to say thank you Allah,
You forget to say InsyaAllah
You forget to say Subhanallah
Raise your hands
Alhamdulillah...
Lets flashback lets backtrack
To a time like yours and mine
The story of the three who long to be
To be free of their misery

To the poor He opened the doors
Gave him plenty of His bounty

Then you forget to say thank you Allah,
You forget to say InsyaAllah
You forget to say Subhanallah
Raise your hands
Alhamdulillah...

Can't you see His promise to you
Can't you see His promise is true
Hold on to the rope of Allah
Don't lose hope in Allah
If you remember Allah in prosperity
He'll not forsake you in adversity
Be mindful of Allah
He'll guide you to all that His good

Then you forget to say thank you Allah,
You forget to say InsyaAllah
You forget to say Subhanallah
Raise your hands
Alhamdulillah...

You're down and out
You just can't cope
You wanna shout
You lost all hope
On your knees, begging please
You turn and pray to find your way
