CAT di Perth

Salam,

Hampir dua minggu saya berada di Perth. Banyak perkara menarik dapat dilihat disini. Saya banyak menaiki pengangkutan awam disini. Semasa menaiki train dan bus, saya sangat tertarik dengan papan tanda didalamnya. Begitu juga dengan perhidmatan bas yang disediakan disini. Saya suka naik bas CAT. Pada mulanya puas saya memikirkan kenapa CAT....dan gambar logonya ialah big cat. Sehinggalah anak saya ternampak perkataan Central Area Transit kat hujung bas tersebut. Bas CAT ni ada tiga jenis

Yellow CAT, Blue CAT dan Red CAT. Ketiga-tiga jenis bas ini melalui kawasan yang berbeza dalam bandar ini. Saya telah menaiki semua jenis bas tersebut. Oleh kerana hotel yang kami tinggal betul-betul dalam bandar Perth, agak senang untuk saya menaiki bas ini. Terutamanya kalau nak ke Habour Town.Perkhidmatannya percuma. Kalaulah Malaysia boleh buat sistem seperti ini...tentu kurang jem di KL.
Sekian...Salam from Perth.

27 Tahun Bahtera Mawardah wa Rahmah



9 September 1985 merupakan tarikh yang tidak dapat dilupakan dalam hidup saya. Tarikh inilah saya diijab kabul dengan suami tercinta Othman bin A-Karim di sebuah tanah asing bernama Toledo Ohio. Benarlah firman Allah dalam surah Ar Rum ayat 21 yang bermaksud “Dan di antara tanda-tanda yang membuktikan kekuasaanNya dan rahmatNya, bahawa Ia menciptakan untuk kamu (wahai kaum lelaki), isteri-isteri dari jenis kamu sendiri, supaya kamu bersenang hati dan hidup mesra dengannya, dan dijadikanNya di antara kamu (suami isteri) perasaan kasih sayang dan belas kasihan. Sesungguhnya yang demikian itu mengandungi keterangan-keterangan (yang menimbulkan kesedaran) bagi orang-orang yang berfikir”.
Perjalanan bahtera kami selama 27 tahun ini telah melahirkan tiga orang putra dan 2 orang puteri secara “berselang bunga”. Pada 25 September 1986, anak sulung lelaki yang dinamakan Anas dilahirkan. Nama ini dipilih sempena nama sahabat Rasulullah, Anas ibn Malik. Anas dilahirkan di Alor Setar, Kedah tiga bulan selepas kami balik dari Toledo. Pada ketika ini jugalah, ayahnya mendapat tawaran pekerjaan sebagai Tutor di UKM. Dua tahun kemudian, pada 1 April 1988, lahir pula seorang puteri yang dinamakan Hanan bermaksud kesayanganku. Hanan dilahirkan di negara asing bernama Liverpool, England ketika ayahandanya sedang membuat ijazah sarjana. Dua tahun kemudian, pada 6 November 1990, seorang putera lagi dilahirkan yang dinamakan Ammar Faiz sempena nama sahabat Rasullullah iaitu Ammar Ibn Yasir. Nama Ammar digabungkan dengan nama Faiz kerana pada ketika itu ayahnya berminat dengan nama Faiz yang bermaksud Berjaya. Ammar dilahirkan di Hospital Seremban, Negeri Sembilan. Empat tahun berlalu, pada 25 September 1994, lahir pula seorang lagi puteri juga dibumi Liverpool, England dan puteri ini kami namakan Aliya Fatin. Aliya dilahirkan ketika ayahnya sedang melanjutkan pelajaran di peringkat PhD. Selama empat tahun anak-anak ini membesar dan bersekolah di St. Silas School, dibumi Liverpool.
Pada tahun 1996, kami kembali ke Malaysia meneruskan kehidupan di bumi tercinta. Kami menetap di Jalan Tiga, Bandar Baru Bangi. Semua anak-anak bersekolah disini. Empat tahun kemudian, pada 14 Julai 2000, kami dianugerahkan seorang lagi putera bongsu yang dinamakan Arif Fikri. Anakda Arif dilahirkan di Hospital UKM. Maka, membesarlah anak-anak ini di Bandar Baru Bangi. Anas bersekolah di SK Jalan Tiga dan SMK Jalan Tiga sehingga Tingkatan Tiga. Kemudian meneruskan pelajaran di Tingkatan Empat dan Lima di SM Sultan Abdul Halim, Jitra (Jenan). Selepas tamat SPM, Anas melanjutkan pelajaran dalam bidang Kejuruteraan Elektrik di Vanderbilt University, Nashville, Tennessee, USA. Sekembalinya dari USA, Anas bekerja di Syarikat Texas Instrument selama 6 bulan sebelum berpindah kerja ke Shell, Miri sehingga kini.
Hanan pula memulakan persekolahan di SK Jalan Tiga. Kemudian menyambung pelajaran di SM Sains Kuala Selangor. Selepas SPM, Hanan dianugerahkan biasiswa Petronas untuk melanjutkan pelajaran dalam bidang Geosains di Monash University, Melbourne, Australia. Kini, Hanan bekerja sebagai Geosaintis di Petronas Carigali, KLCC. Ammar pula belajar di SK dan SMK Jalan Tiga sehingga tingkatan tiga. Kemudian, menyambungkan pelajaran ke MRSM, Jasin, Melaka. Selepas SPM, Ammar ditawarkan membuat Program IB di Kolej Mara Banting. Kini Ammar sedang melanjutkan pelajaran dalam bidang perubatan di Cork, Ireland. Anak yang ke empat Aliya pula bersekolah di SK dan SMK Jalan Empat sehingga tingkatan 3. Kini, Aliya sedang belajar di MRSM Pengkalan Chepa, Kota Bharu dan akan mengambil peperiksaan SPM pada tahun ini. Anak yang bongsu, yakni Arif bersekolah di SK Jalan Tiga dalam darjah lima.
Bahtera kami diserikan dengan kedatangan menantu pada bulan Jun 2009. Kami menerima kedatangan menantu Azreena binti Ahmad Shukri dengan penuh kesyukuran. Hasil perkahwinan ini, tanggal 10 Disember 2011, kami dianugerahkan cucu lelaki yang dinamakan Adam Al-Fateh. Maka, lengkaplah perjalanan bahtera kami selama 25 tahun dengan penuh kasih sayang dan rahmah.
Ya Allah, Ya Rahim, kurniakan keimanan dan kesabaran kepada kami dalam melayari bahtera ini. Kurniakanlah ketakwaan dan kesyukuran kepada keluarga kami dalam menerima nikmatmu. Kurniakanlah keredhaan dan keinsafan kepada kami dalam beribadat kepadaMu. Kurniakanlah ketabahan dan kecekalan kepada kami supaya menjadi hamba yang berjaya di dunia dan akhirat.
Amin.

Cuti Oh Cuti

Salam,


Sudah lama saya tak update blog ni....Bukan tak ingat ..selalu ingat nak update tapi ....susah nak tulis alasan disini sebab banyak sangat alasan kalau nak ditulis.
Anyway..untuk kali saya akan menceritakan tentang cuti. Sebagai pensyarah di IPG, cuti kami adalah seperti cuti sekolah. Cuma, pada cuti semester kedua kami diberi tambahan 1 minggu lagi cuti tambahan. Ini bermakna kami mendapat 3 minggu cuti pada semester ini.
Sedihnya..saya belum lagi mendapat cuti yang sebenarnya. Kenapa? Pada minggu pertama cuti, saya masih sebok menyiapkan kerja-kerja seperti menanda kertas peperiksaan dan mengajar KDC. Pada minggu kedua pula, saya dikehendaki menghadiri Bengkel selama 4 hari di Hotel Summit USJ. Manakala, pada minggu ketiga pula saya dikehendaki menghadiri satu lagi bengkel yang lain di Hotel Empress, Sepang. Minggu hadapan semester baharu bermula. Selain daripada menguruskan pendaftaran pelajar baharu, saya juga dikehendaki menghadiri satu lagi mensyuarat di MElaka dan Pulau Pinang.
Cuti semester selama tiga minggu berlalu tanpa cuti. Namun, saya merasa sangat gembira pada cuti kali kerana walaupun kami tidak pergi kemana-mana, tapi saya dapat menghabiskan masa bersama anak-anak dan cucu yang pulang bercuti. Selain itu, niat saya untuk mengemas rumah (setor) menjadi kenyataan dengan bantuan anak sulung saya ANas dan anak bongsu Arif juga Aliya.
Saya mengharapkan Allah memberikan saya kekuatan untuk meneruskan kerja dengan cemerlang dalam semester yang baharu ini.

10 Tips on How to be a Successful Wife


1.) Use your ‘Fitnah’ (beauty and overtures of allurement) to win the heart of your husband. All women have the ornaments that Allah blessed them with.  Use the beauty Allah SWT has bestowed you with to win the heart of your husband. Dress up for your husband at home. Wear the colours and clothes that he likes to see you in and use makeup, perfume, jewellery - in short, whatever it takes to be attractive to him. From the early years, little girls have adorned themselves with earrings and bracelets and worn pretty dresses - as described in the Qur’an. Continue this tradition as a wife.
2.) Be sensitive to his moods, feelings and needs. For example, don’t start complaining or burden him with problems as soon as he comes home; rather, welcome him and make him feel good to be home. Imagine your husband coming home to a clean house, an exquisitely dressed wife, a dinner prepared with care, children clean and sweet smelling, a clean bedroom - what would this do to his love for you? Now imagine what the opposite does to him.
3.) Review the characteristics of the Hoor Al-Ayn (women of jannah), and try to imitate them. The Qur’an and Sunnah describe the women in jannah with certain characteristics.  Such as the silk they wear, their large dark eyes, their singing to their husband, etc. Try it, wear silk for your husband, put Kohl in your eyes to ‘enlarge’ them, and sing to your husband. 
4.) Do things together or at least allocate some time of the day to give him your undivided attention. Be sincere in appreciating him, show interest in his day, his activities, his thoughts and opinions. Give him advice and comfort him when needed. Spend your husband’s money carefully and try to keep him informed of where his money is being spent. Remember not to spend large amounts of his money without his permission. Show caring and concern for his relatives as this is a sure way of securing a place in his heart. Never object when he spends on them, as this is a source of abundance in provision and increase in life span.
5.) Joke and play games with your husband. A mans secret: they seek women who are light-hearted and have a sense of humour. As Rasulullah SAW told Jabir to marry someone who would make him laugh and he would make her laugh. Be cheerful and humorous, smile often, don’t feel shy to be affectionate with your husband and make him feel really happy to be around you. Express your love frequently and creatively, rather than waiting for him to do so first.
6.) Be grateful to your husband. Remind yourself that it’s a tough world out there and your husband works very hard to provide for you. So whatever you do, don’t compare him to other men, unless it is favourably. Thank your husband constantly for the nice things he does. Let him know that you appreciate his efforts, not just through your words, but also your actions. This is one of the most important techniques, as the opposite is a characteristic of the women of hellfire. 
7.) Don’t fly into a rage when you have a difference of opinion or he criticizes you. Stay calm, control your tongue and don’t challenge your husband’s authority at that time. Use your wisdom, tactics and powers of persuasion later to try to explain your point of view. Believe the best, not the worst about him. Be forgiving and accept apologies graciously rather than holding grudges and bringing up mistakes of the past. An argument is a fire in the house. Extinguish it with a simple ‘I’m sorry’ even if it is not your fault. When you fight back, you are only adding wood to the fire. Watch how sweetly an argument will end when you just say sincerely, “Look, I’m sorry.  Let’s be friends.” 
8.) Always seek to please your husband, for he is your key to jannah. Rasulullah SAW taught us that any women who dies in a state where her husband is pleased with her, shall enter jannah. So please him. Simple things like serve him the foods he likes, remembering that variety is the spice of life. Try to eat together as this fosters companionship.
9.) Listen and Obey! Obeying your husband is fard (obligatory). Remember that your husband is the head of the family and as long as obedience to him does not entail any sin, it is your duty to obey him. Show respect for your husband by not divulging your private and confidential issues to others, or by complaining about him to people or discussing your marital problems with those who cannot help you.
10.) Make dua to Allah SWT to make your marriage and relationship successful. All good things are from Allah. Never forget to ask Allah SWT for the blessing of having a successful marriage that begins in this dunya and continues on - by the Mercy of Allah SWT into jannah.
May Allah SWT give us the favour of changing what we can change (like ourselves), patience with what we cannot change (like our spouse), and the wisdom to understand the difference. Whatever truth is in it is from Allah and His Messenger, and whatever mistakes are from the shaytaan and myself; And Allah and His Messenger are absolved from it.

10 Tips on How to be a Successful Husband


1.)Dress up for your wife, look clean and smell good. When was the last time us men went shopping for designer pajamas? Just like the husband wants his wife to look nice for him, she also wants her husband to dress up for her too. Remember that Rasulullah SAW would always start with Miswak when returning home and always loved the sweetest smells.   

2.) Use the cutest names for your wife. Rasulullah SAW had nicknames for his wives, ones that they loved. Call your wife by the most beloved names to her, and avoid using names that hurt their feelings.  

3.) Don’t treat her like a fly. We never think about a fly in our daily lives until it ‘bugs’ us. Similarly, a wife will do well all day - which brings no attention from the husband - until she does something to ‘bug’ him. Don’t treat her like this; recognize all the good that she does and focus on that.   

4.) If you see wrong from your wife, try being silent and do not comment! This is one of the ways Rasulullah SAW used when he would see something inappropriate from his wives Radiallahu Anhunn. It is something that very few muslim men have learnt or practice with their wives.  

5.) Smile at your wife whenever you see her and embrace her often. Smiling is sadaqah and your wife is not exempt from the muslim ummah. Imagine life with her constantly seeing you smiling. Remember also those Ahadith when Rasulullah SAW would kiss his wife before leaving for Salah, even if he was fasting.   

6.) Thank her for all that she does for you. Then thank her again! Take for example a dinner at your house. She makes the food, cleans the home, and a dozen other tasks to prepare. And sometimes the only acknowledgement she receives is that there needed to be more salt in the soup. Don’t be that person; thank her!

7.) Ask her to write down the last ten things you did for her that made her happy. Then go and do them again. It may be hard to recognize what makes her happy. You don’t have to play a guessing game, ask her and work on repeating those things in your life.   

8.) Don’t belittle her desires. Comfort her. Sometimes the men may look down upon the requests of their wives. Rasulullah SAW set the example for us in an incident when Safiyyah RA was crying because, as she said, he had put her on a slow camel. He wiped her tears, comforted her, and brought her the camel.   

9.) Be humorous and play games with your wife. Make her laugh, have little ‘inside’ jokes and moments with her. Honestly your wifes laughter is one of the best sounds in life. Make her smile keep & her happy. Look at how Rasulullah SAW would race his wife Aisha RA in the desert. When was the last time we did something like that?  

10.) Always remember the words of Allah’s Messenger SAW: “The best of you are those who treat their families the best. And I am the best amongst you to my family.” Try to be the best!

Never forget to make dua to Allah SWT to make your marriage successful. And Allah SWT knows best. :)

The beautiful of marriage....

Happy Ever After

Salam, got this interesting story in my e-mail today...

A love story with a touchable ending.. 

When I got home that night as my wife served dinner, I held her hand and said, I've got something to tell you. She sat down and ate quietly. Again I observed the hurt in her eyes.
Suddenly I didn't know how to open my mouth. But I had to let her know what I was thinking. I want a divorce. I raised the topic calmly.
She didn't seem to be annoyed by my words, instead she asked me softly, why?
 I avoided her question. This made her angry. She threw away the chopsticks and shouted at me, you are not a man! That night, we didn't talk to each other. She was weeping. I knew she wanted to find out what had happened to our marriage. But I could hardly give her a satisfactory answer; she had lost my heart to Jane. I didn't love her anymore. I just pitied her!

 With a deep sense of guilt, I drafted a divorce agreement which stated that she could own our house, our car, and 30% stake of my company. She glanced at it and then tore it into pieces. The woman who had spent ten years of her life with me had become a stranger. I felt sorry for her wasted time, resources and energy but I could not take back what I had said for I loved Jane so dearly. Finally she cried loudly in front of me, which was what I had expected to see. To me her cry was actually a kind of release. The idea of divorce which had obsessed me for several weeks seemed to be firmer and clearer now.

 The next day, I came back home very late and found her writing something at the table. I didn't have supper but went straight to sleep and fell asleep very fast because I was tired after an eventful day with Jane.  When I woke up, she was still there at the table writing. I just did not care so I turned over and was asleep again.

 In the morning she presented her divorce conditions: she didn't want anything from me, but needed a month's notice before the divorce. She requested that in that one month we both struggle to live as normal a life as possible. Her reasons were simple: our son had his exams in a month's time and she didn't want to disrupt him with our broken marriage.
 This was agreeable to me. But she had something more, she asked me to recall how I had carried her into out bridal room on our wedding day.

She requested that every day for the month's duration I carry her out of our bedroom to the front door ever morning. I thought she was going crazy. Just to make our last days together bearable I accepted her odd request.
 I told Jane about my wife's divorce conditions. . She laughed loudly and thought it was absurd. No matter what tricks she applies, she has to face the divorce, she said scornfully.
 My wife and I hadn't had any body contact since my divorce intention was explicitly expressed. So when I carried her out on the first day, we both appeared clumsy. Our son clapped behind us, daddy is holding mommy in his arms. His words brought me a sense of pain. From the bedroom to the sitting room, then to the door, I walked over ten meters with her in my arms. She closed her eyes and said softly; don't tell our son about the divorce. I nodded, feeling somewhat upset. I put her down outsidethe door. She went to wait for the bus to work. I drove alone to the office.

 On the second day, both of us acted much more easily. She leaned on my chest. I could smell the fragrance of her blouse. I realized that I hadn't looked at this woman carefully for a long time. I realized she was not young any more. There were fine wrinkles on her face, her hair was graying! Our marriage had taken its toll on her. For a minute I wondered what I had done to her.

 On the fourth day, when I lifted her up, I felt a sense of intimacy returning. This was the woman who had given ten years of her life to me. On the fifth and sixth day, I realized that our sense of intimacy was growing again. I didn't tell Jane about this. It became easier to carry her as the month slipped by. Perhaps the everyday workout made me stronger.
 She was choosing what to wear one morning. She tried on quite a few dresses but could not find a suitable one. Then she sighed, all my dresses have grown bigger. I suddenly realized that she had grown so thin, that was the reason why I could carry her more easily.

Suddenly it hit me... she had buried so much pain and bitterness in her heart. Subconsciously I reached out and touched her head.
 Our son came in at the moment and said, Dad, it's time to carry mom out. To him, seeing his father carrying his mother out had become an essential part of his life. My wife gestured to our son to come closer and hugged him tightly. I turned my face away because I was afraid I might change my mind at this last minute. I then held her in my arms, walking from the bedroom, through the sitting room, to the hallway. Her hand surrounded my neck softly and naturally. I held her body tightly; it was just like our wedding day.
But her much lighter weight made me sad. On the last day, when I held her in my arms I could hardly move a step. Our son had gone to school. I held her tightly and said, I hadn't noticed that our life lacked intimacy.

I drove to office.... jumped out of the car swiftly without locking the door. I was afraid any delay would make me change my mind...I walked upstairs. Jane opened the door and I said to her, Sorry, Jane, I do not want the divorce anymore.
 She looked at me, astonished, and then touched my forehead. Do you have a fever? She said. I moved her hand off my head. Sorry, Jane, I said, I won't divorce. My marriage life was boring probably because she and I didn't value the details of our lives, not because we didn't love each other anymore. Now I realize that since I carried her into my home on our wedding day I am supposed to hold her until death do us apart.Jane seemed to suddenly wake up. She gave me a loud slap and then slammed the door and burst into tears. I walked downstairs and drove away.

At the floral shop on the way, I ordered a bouquet of flowers for my wife. The salesgirl asked me what to write on the card. I smiled and wrote, I'll carry you out every morning until death do us apart.
 That evening I arrived home, flowers in my hands, a smile on my face, I run up stairs, only to find my wife in the bed - dead.
My wife had been fighting CANCER for months and I was so busy with Jane to even notice. She knew that she would die soon and she wanted to save me from the whatever negative reaction from our son, in case we push thru with the divorce.-- At least, in the eyes of our son--- I'm a loving husband....

 The small details of your lives are what really matter in a relationship. It is not the mansion, the car, property, the money in the bank. These create an environment conducive for happiness but cannot give happiness in themselves. So find time to be your spouse's friend and do those little things for each other that build intimacy. Do have a real happy marriage!

 If you don't share this, nothing will happen to you.
 If you do, you just might save a marriage.
Many of life's failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.


Value the relationship we have...

Penyembuh Penyakit Batin


Salam...perkongsian pengubat batin...

Hasan Al-Bashri seorang ulama’ terkemuka yang berasal dari Bashrah, Iraq menyaksikan seorang pemuda datang kepada seorang doktor yang menanyakan perkara berikut :
Wahai doktor, apakah tuan memiliki resepi atau ubat mujarab yang boleh menghapuskan dosa-dosa dan menyembuhkan penyakit hati?
Doktor itu menjawab : Ya!
Pemuda itu berkata lagi : Berikan pada saya resepi mujarab itu!
Doktor berkata : "Ambillah sepuluh bahan pelebur dosa itu :

SEPULUH BAHAN PELEBUR DOSA

PERTAMA :
Ambillah akar pohon rasa fakir’ dan berhajat kepada Allah bersama dengan akar kerendahan hati yang tulus dan ikhlas kepada Allah.

KEDUA :
Jadikan taubatsebagai campurannya.

KETIGA :
Lalu masukkan ia dalam wadah ridha’ atas semua ketentuan dan takdir Allah.

KEEMPAT :
Campurkan dengan campuran qana'ah’ rasa puas dengan apa yang telah Allah berikan kepada kita.

KELIMA :
Masukkan dalam kuali takwa’.

KEENAM :
Tuangkan ke dalamnya air rasa malu’.

KETUJUH :
Lalu didihkanlah dengan api cinta’.

KELAPAN :
Kemudian masukkan dalam adunan syukur’.

KESEMBILAN :
Serta keringkan dengan kipasan harap’.

KESEPULUH :
Lalu akhirnya minumlah dengan sendok pujian’.
Jika engkau mampu melakukannya pastilah engkau mampu mencegah penyakit dan berbagai ujian samada di dunia mahupun akhirat" jelas doktor itu.

APABILA HILANG RASA FAKIR
Ramai orang yang melakukan dosa dan kesalahan terhadap Allah kerana dia merasa cukup dengan kemampuan dirinya dan seakan-akan tidak lagi memerlukan (rasa fakir) kepada sesiapapun, termasuk pada Yang Maha Kaya.
Dia beranggapan bahwa dirinya mampu melakukan semua perkara dengan :
a.      Kekuatannya.
b.      Kemampuannya.
c.      Potensi dirinya.
d.      Tenaga dirinya.

Dia merasa bahwa semua yang dia dapatkan adalah hasil dari :
1.      Kekuatan fikirannya.
2.      Kemampuan ilmunya.
3.      Kejernihan pengiraannya.
4.      Kematangan perhitungannya.

Inilah yang berlaku kepada Qarun yang angkuh dengan harta yang dimilikinya yang kemudiannya Allah turunkan azab kepadanya dengan ditelankannya dia oleh bumi yang tidak lagi suka pada :
a.      Kecongkakannya.
b.      Kesombongannya.
c.      Keangkuhannya.
yang dipamerkannya sehingga membuatkan bumi merasa marah.

APABILA HILANG RASA RIDHA  

Sumber dosa lainnya adalah kerana orang itu tidak ridha’ dengan apa yang Allah tetapkan pada dirinya.
Sering kali dari bibirnya keluar keluhan dan bahkan kritikan kepada Allah kenapa Allah tidak memberikan yang "terbaik" :
  1. Menurut pandangannya.
  2. Menurut persepsinya.
  3. Menurut pemikirannya.
Dia menyangka bahwa apa yang dia alami ketika ini :
  1. Tidaklah sesuai bagi dirinya.
  2. Tidak patut untuk dirinya.
  3. Tidak layak untuk diterima.
Dia seakan-akan lebih tahu dari Allah Yang Maha Tahu yang mengetahui dengan terperinci semua perkara samada yang baik mahupun yang buruk bagi hambaNya.
Inilah yang berlaku kepada Qabil tatkala menuntut ayahnya agar dia dikahwinkan dengan adik kembarnya padahal Allah swt telah menentukan keputusan yang lain untuknya.
Lambat kembali kepada Allah merupakan penyebab lain dari tidak terhapusnya dosa-dosa yang kita lakukan.

BERTAUBATLAH! 

Berlaku mendapan dosa kerana seringkali kita menunda ‘taubat’ yang sepatutnya kita lakukan dengan cepat.
Padahal Allah swt memerintahkan kita untuk segera merapatkan diri kepada Allah setelah beberapa lama kita telah menjauhinya.
Getarkanlah hati kita semua dengan kesesalan di atas semua kesalahan yang kita lakukan.
Mereka seakan-akan tidak tahu bahwa Allah swt sentiasa menerima taubat hambaNya dan Allah sangat senang dengan taubat mereka.
Ini sebagaimana firman Allah swt :
“Tidakkah mereka mengetahui, bahwasanya Allah menerima taubat dari hamba-hambaNya dan menerima sedekah, dan bahwasanya Allah Maha Penerima taubat lagi Maha Penyayang?” (QS At-Taubah : 104)

APABILA HILANG RASA SYUKUR  

Rasa tidak puas dengan apa yang Allah berikan pada kita merupakan penyakit kronik yang melahirkan :
1.      Buruk sangka kepada Allah.
2.      Menyangkal kehendak Allah.
3.      Menyalahkan Allah.
Rasa tidak puas dengan kurniaan Allah akan mengecilkan rasa ‘syukur’ kita kepadaNya dan bahkan satu ketika akan memadamkannya.

APABILA HILANG RASA QANA’AH 

Lenyapnya rasa ‘qana'ah’ di atas segala kurniaanNya akan membuahkan ketamakan dan ketamakan akan melahirkan kezaliman-kezaliman manakala dari kezaliman akan memunculkan kerosakan-kerosakan yang akan menghancurkan susunan kehidupan.

SEMARAKKAN RASA TAKWA

Jika dalam diri kita telah ada rasa kefakiran, rasa ridha dan qana'ah dan taubat maka semangat ‘takwa’ kepada Allah hendaknya kita pupuk terus menerus dan kita bina dengan saksama.
Ini adalah kerana ketakwaan itu laksana sebuah tanaman yang jika dibina dengan sebaik-baiknya maka dia akan tumbuh subur dan indah dan jika kita biarkan maka ketakwaan itu akan segera layu dan lesu.
Ketakwaan boleh kita sirami dengan dengan :
a.      Rasa takut kepada Allah.
b.      Mengamalkan nilai-nilai Al-Qur’an.
c.      Puas dengan apa yang ada.
d.      Mempersiapkan diri sepenuhnya untuk perjalanan akhir kita iaitu kematian.
Jadikan ‘takwa’ terus menerus tumbuh, berkembang dan berterusan sampai maut datang menjelang.

KEKUATAN RASA MALU  

Hendaknya kita merangsang ketakwaan kita sehingga kita merasa ‘malu’ untuk melanggar setiap perintah dan larangan Allah samada di khalayak ramai ataupun bersendirian.
“Wahai orang-orang yang beriman, bertakwalah kepada Allah dengan sebenar-benar takwa kepada-Nya; dan janganlah sekali-kali kamu mati melainkan dalam keadaan beragama Islam.” (QS Ali Imran : 102)

HADIRKAN SEMANGAT CINTA

Ketakwaan kita akan semakin bermakna apabila yang menjadi pendorongnya adalah ‘cinta’ (mahabbah) kepada Allah.
‘Cinta’ kepada Allah sepenuh jiwa dan hati yang tidak lagi membuatnya berfikir atau merasa rugi dalam melaksanakan perintah dan anjuranNya.
Semangat cinta yang membakar hatinya akan sentiasa menggerakkannya untuk sentiasa :
1.      Dekat denganNya.
2.      Merapatkan diri kepadaNya.
3.      Giat berusaha untuk mencapai ridha dan kasihNya.
4.      Meminum melalui cawan rahmatNya.
dalam setiap langkah-langkah hidup dan goresan sejarahnya.
Rasa cintanya yang menggelegak kepada Allah akan sentiasa membuatkan :
a.      Hidupnya terasa benar-benar bermakna.
b.      Langkahnya penuh pasti menuju Kekasihnya.
c.      Cawan cintanya sentiasa dipenuhi dengan air mata takwa, ridha, qana’ah, taubat, syukur, tawakkal dan sabar.

TINGGIKAN RASA HARAP

Bagi para pencinta, yang di’harap’kannya bukan lagi dirinya tapi Zat yang dicintainya dan dia :
1.      Larut dalam gelombang kasihNya.
2.      Larut dalam rahmatNya.
3.      Masuk dalam dakapan ridhaNya.

PUJIAN YANG TIADA BATAS

Akhirnya pujian yang setinggi-tingginya hendaklah diangkat kepada Zat yang memang berhak untuk itu.
Oleh yang demikian, ramuan kefakiran kepada Allah adalah :
Taubat + Ridha + Qana'ah + Takwa + Malu + Cinta + Syukur + Harap + Pujian kepada Allah.  
Di mana ianya akan membersihkan dosa kita serta mencairkan kesalahan kita.
Yakinlah bahwa resepi ini, selain mampu menghapuskan dosa kita, ia juga akan menambah kesegaran keimanan kita serta menambah tenaga keislaman kita dan memantapkan akar ihsan kita.
Selamat mencuba dan insyaAllah kita akan merasai khasiatnya dengan hasil jiwa yang segar dan jernih serta dosa yang minima setiap hari.

Ya Allah, berilah kemudahan kepada kami untuk kami menggunakan ubat dan resepi dariMu yang cukup berkesan untuk menimbulkan rasa fakir dan bergantung kepadaMu, menghapuskan segala dosa-dosa kami, menambah kesegaran keimanan kami serta memantapkan hakikat ihsan kami terhadapMu.

Ameen Ya Rabbal Alameen

E-mail from grave

 A Minnesota couple decided to vacation to Florida during the winter. They planned to stay at the very same hotel where they spent their honeymoon 20 years earlier. Because of hectic schedules, it was difficult to coordinate their travel schedules. So, the husband left Minnesota and flew to Florida on Thursday. His wife would fly down the following day.

The husband checked into the hotel. There was a computer in his room, so he decided to send an e-mail to his wife. However, he accidentally left out one letter in her e-mail address, and without realizing his error, he sent the e-mail.

Meanwhile.....somewhere in Houston, a widow had just returned home from her husband's funeral. He was a minister of many years who was called home to glory following a sudden heart attack. The widow decided to check her e-mail, expecting messages from relatives and friends. After reading the first message, she fainted.

The widow's son rushed into the room, found his mother on the floor, and saw the computer screen which read:

To: My Loving Wife
Subject: I've Arrived
Date: 16 May 2003
I know you're surprised to hear from me. They have computers here now and you are allowed to send e-mails to your loved ones. I've just arrived and have been checked in. I see that everything has been prepared for your arrival tomorrow. Looking forward to seeing you then! Hope your journey is not as uneventful as mine was.
P.S. Sure is hot down here!

Good joke for the day...

Aqiqah Cucunda Adam Al-Fatih

Satu ekor dipanggang, satu ekor lagi digulai

Salam,
Pada 4 hb Februari lepas kami sekeluarga telah mengadakan kenduri aqiqah untuk cucunda kami yang pertama Adam Al-Fatih. Alhamdulillah, walau pun pada mulanya kami agak risau kerana ramai jemputan memberitahu tidak dapat hadir kerana balik kampung sempena cuti raya cina, ramai lagi kenalan yang lain datang.
 Kepada tetamu yang hadir saya ucapkan ribuan terima kasih. Disini saya paparkan gambar kenangan pada hari tersebut.

The Grand Old Lady


Melihat tajuk di atas anda pasti teringat tugu di Muzium di Miri...Bagi saya melihat saya perkataan itu sebelum ini tidak membawa apa-apa makna. Namun selepas 10 hb Dis..segalanya berubah..this grand old lady is me...me yang dah tua....tua dalam erti melewati liku-liku hidup sebagai insan walau pun dari segi pernomboran usia tidak begitu. Saya telah melalui proses kehidupan yang sebenar dari seorang bayi, menjadi kanak-kanak, meningkat remaja secara sendirian, kemudian berkahwin, menjadi isteri, ibu, menantu dan kini menjadi nenek kepada seorang cucu. Inilah proses hidup yang lengkap dalam sebuah kehidupan dengan melalui fasa-fasa kehidupan yang lengkap. Tua lah tu...dari segi makna kehidupan.
Walau bagaimanapun, saya bersyukur kepada Allah kerana diberi kenikmatan yang begini dan berdoa semoga kami sekeluarga sentiasa dilimpahi dengan rahmat dariNYa sentiasa.
Tanggal 10 Disember 2010 merupakan detik yang paling bersejarah dalam hidup saya dimana cucu sulung saya telah selamat dilahirkan di Miri, Serawak. Saya sempat bersama anak saya Anas dan menantu saya Azreena dan kedua bisan saya pada pagi tersebut.
Teringat saya 24 tahun yang lalu, semasa Anas dilahirkan..Rasanya seperti baru semalam dia dilahirkan. Hari ini, anakku dah menjadi seorang bapa. "Rasa macam baru semalam kita berbasikal kesekolah...hari ni kau telah menjadi seorang bapa". Begitulah komen salah seorang sahabat sekelas anak saya dalam FBnya. Begitu pantas masa berlalu...
Disini saya paparkan beberapa keping gambar detik bersejarah dalam hidup kami.

Pingat Vs Pangkat

Majlis Santapan Tengahari di Istana Seri Menanti

Salam, Selamat bertemu di tahun 2011. Agak lama juga blog ini tidak di update. Sebenarnya banyak cerita nak tulis. Tapi ..tak de mood...Rupanya menulis ni juga perlukan mood. Anyway...masih belum terlambat untuk saya mengucapkan Selamat Tahun Baharu kepada semua pembaca blog saya ni. Baru 17 hari kita berada di tahun 2011..macam-macam dah berlaku.
"Tahun 2011 ni sejuk la...?" Itulah jawapan yang diberikan oleh pelajar saya apabila ditanya tentang tahun 2011. Sehingga saat ini, cuaca masih sejuk. Kain pun tak kering...alhamdulillah dah beli dryer.....
Minggu lepas saya ke Genting Highland..cuaca di sana sangat sejuk. Teringat kenangan semasa di US dan UK. Kabus hingga ke tengah hari.
Pingat vs Pangkat..disini juga saya ingin kongsikan beberapa gambar terbaharu saya di tahun 2011..yang sangat signifikan dalam hidup saya. Kenangan ini telah menyedarkan saya betapa Allah itu maha pengasih dan penyayang. Diberinya kita...kenikmatan hidup didunia...supaya kita sentiasa mengingati rumah kita yang kekal abadi di akhirat. Dalam kehidupan dunia...semua balasan material dapat kita lihat dengan mata kasar kita. Dan saya sangat mengharapkan agar pada pandangan Allah berlebih-lebih lagi hendaknya. Allah juga telah menjanjikan syurga kepada hambanya yang sentiasa mengikut ajaranNya dan menjauhi laranganNYa. Walaupun balasan ini tidak dapat dilihat dengan mata kasar, saya percaya dan yakin sesungguhnya janji Allah itu benar.

"Maka..nikmat tuhan kamu yang manakah yang kamu dustakan..".wahai Bushro....Ingatlah...
