MLM

Yup, finally im admitting.
ive been in this business for quite a long time
i know, shocked aih?
and yesterday, during which i thought was going to b a normal visit to my previous uni, i was trapped into spending an hour listening to a promoter explaining HIS multi level business marketing (a lecturer at uni??), i finally realised that the one im in is much more AWESOME than his.
ok, so this is what he said.

1) The membership fee is 25 USD
2) With every odd person i succeed in persuading and link into getting to join the group i get 100% of his membership payment, or simply said 25 USDper odd person, until the 6th person. After that, with everysingle person joining, the commission is 100% mine.
3) All other even person i persuade and link into joining the group, the payment will go to the person who persuades me, or simply said 25 USD per even person to the one above me, until the 6th person.
4) These payments are to occur monthly
5) So each member will have two sources of income, from people he persuades, and from people he persuaded persuades...???x_x
6) All u have to do is use the blog..and payment is through paypal.

just try to understand..haha

So then the guy starts bragging about people who have become RICH from this business..which is usually the part i hate the most. So at exactly 12.00 afternoon i stopped him. and i said..

Im sorry, but im already in business. And i bet its way much better than yours.
U wanna know??
So i drew the chart like in the pic above, (but without the boxes, the suit, and especially the nose)..
And i said..

the membership fee?
FREE

the commission?
effort based, not success into persuading based

the profit?
everlasting. even if u die, it still is credited into ur account. only stops if u quit.

the medium?
anything. blog, fb, yahoo, in fact, even if u dont have internet, u can still do it. through speach, actions and example

the method?
BECOME A TRUE MUSLIM.
SO THAT PEOPLE WILL SEE THE TRUE QUALITY OF ISLAM.
SO THAT WHEN U SPEAK, U ARE A MUSLIM, WHEN U SMILE U ARE A MUSLIM, WHEN U WALK U ARE A MUSLIM.
IF U MANAGE TO PERSUADE PEOPLE, THEY WILL THEN TRY TO PERSUADE OTHERS INTO THIS TRUTH. SO IT WILL SPREAD. AND THE THE DEEDS ARE ALL ALSO CREDITED INTO UR ACCOUNT!
AND EVEN IF U FAIL TO PERSUADE, THE DEEDS STILL FLOW IN AS UR EFFORTS NO MATTER HOW SMALL ARE WORTH EVERY INCH FOR THE HEREAFTER.
insyaAllah..

just spread the word, even if its not urs, spread others words, spread mines if u want, ill never ask for royalty.
all i want is the commission from Allah..=)




 
Ya Allah.May this understanding spread.
Let it be the truth that finally touches all hearts.
So that no excuse is given against me in the hereafter.
For THIS, i witness.

The Start, The Steps, The End

Pay attention to where u are, which part u are in, how u plan and prepare for the coming. Then u'll see that reasons are very important, that thoughts are very in need, that desires aren't always attendable, that steps are all accountable, and that a word on this world can always make a change.
And that, u'll see, the forseen future, is what u really seek, as an ending that never ends.

Ya Allah.Forgive me for my mistakes.Aid me with what I said.

What He values

At times,
when we start pondering on how complicated and worthy our lives have become, stuffed with unanimous responsibilities and work loads, bright with the various colours we try to fill it up with,
lets just keep in mind, does Allah value them?

And when Musa met Harun.

Who was Harun AS? And who was he to Musa AS?
Many authorities agree, that the prophet Musa and prophet Harun where brothers. Blood brothers.
And when Musa AS was given the mission to meet Fir'aun..
this time to stop his ignorance, to spread the truth, to end his cruel reign, to remind him of who he really was in front of Allah..

"Go to Fir'aun! Verily, he has transgressed (all bounds in disbelief and disobedience, and has behaved as an arrogant, and as a tyrant)."

Musa asked Allah that his dear beloved brother..Harun, would be with him, so that things would be much smoother for him. Musa said..

"O my Lord! Open for me my chest (grant me self-confidence, contentment, and boldness). And ease my task for me. And make loose the knot (the defect) from my tongue, (remove the incorrectness from my speech). That they understand my speech, And appoint for me a helper from my family, Harun, my brother; Increase my strength with him, And let him share my task (of conveying Allah's Message and Prophethood), That we may glorify You much, And remember You much, Verily! You are of us Ever a Well-Seer."

MasyaAllah..those words.."Harun, my brother; Increase my strength with him"
think about it for a moment..
When we're alone and in much need of company, aren't the ones closest to us; the ones we love the most, considered the strongest support we could have.
Just imagine, when you're in the heat of exams, and stress starts building up..
who do you call?? your parents rite!!
erk..no?? ahh, then there's something wrong there mate..

So the point here is Musa asked for Harun, because he really needed Harun, and for him Harun was the best support he need. And surely Musa loved Harun.
So now, if WE were like Musa, how much effort have we put in ensuring that the ones closest to us share our understandings, feel what we feel, know our tasks and ready to support us.
Believe me, those closest to us, those who once grew along with us, would be the most supportive when they understand.
So look around you, family, friends, classmates, roommates, work buddies, those that you love, they are really just waiting for you to tell them, its just that you never did. And pray, do pray. Ask that Allah shows them the way..because there is no one who knows better than Allah


Ya Allah.Forgive me for my mistakes.Aid me with what I said.

Kan Ku Tempuh Jua

This dreaded silence can be so painful.
And everyone is chanting, cheering, greeting. But all i hear here is silence.
Missing things, missing people, missing atmospheres.
 
ku mengharapkan ramadhan kali ini penuh makna
tak ingin ku biarkan Ramadhan berlalu saja
tuhan
pimpinlah daku yang lemah
mengharungi SEGALANYA dengan sabar.
 
Ya Allah, though through any darkness i step,
i plead, let this heart shine, and please, please, lead me the way.

It all starts with something small.

These sins, they always start as something small..then comes the ignorance of letting it grow, feeling that its harmless. And then you stop moving. You feel useless. You give up. Futur

Ibn Mas'ud once said:
A faajir sees his sin like a fly, thinks he can wave it away, anytime.
A mukmin sees his sin like a mountain, fearing it as though it will crash on him, anytime.
Fear your sins, no matter how small it is.

Ya Allah.Strengthen me.Guide me from this rest

And it keeps ringing

Why is it that when everything is so cramped, you're so efficient?
Yet when it is so ample, you're so useless?
Emptiness, loneliness, nothingness.

A senior once said, in many many tests that Allah has for you, there will be a test of nothingness.
A time when you have nothing sorted out for you, nothing told to be done, no programs, no schedules, no assignments, nothing.
And there, you'll know what i mean.

"So learn from this nothingness, be a master of it, and insyaAllah you'll find the true meaning of istiqamah"

Ya Allah.Forgive me for my mistakes.Aid me with what I said.

Incapable

This's gonna be brief, coz though everything's settled, i' ve actually assigned some house tasks for myself to be done, so im not gonna waste time thinking for what to write.

But there is this thing that i really want to share, it was picked up from a conversation with my mom.
She said;
Remember, Allah says in the Quran:

"Allah does not charge a soul except [with that within] its capacity"
 
Now for what reasons this ayah was lined out to me is not to be shared, but what this ayah is about will be.
So as i started pondering on this verse, i came across some things people questioned. Things like;
Whatever the difficulties come on me, i have to bear it?
Because it was fated onto me?
Because though it is such a burden, it is within my capacity?
Can't run away from fate?

Now i know, everyone would have passed through a time when hale and storms brewed in their hearts, it is undeniable. Even if you look at the happiest man on earth (though i don't think one was ever elected), he would still have gone through hardships in life. It is unavoidable. The fitrah of us humans.

But the extent of the hardships? That is subjective. Some are tested with hardships their whole life, some for a day, some for months. But wherever there is hardship, there is always happiness that would come following. This sequence is actually a reminder. A reminder that Allah wants us to benefit this ease for good before it gets hard, as said by our beloved prophet pbuh:

"Take advantage of five before five: your life before your death, your health before your illness, your free time before becoming busy, your youth before your old age and your wealth before your poverty."
Sorry, but that was kinda out of topic, but if ur interested, ive already posted it once a time ago here.

Whatever the hardships are, no matter how hard you are tested, you would know that u are always capable of going through it. Or would i? Could i just keep saying its possible? That i'm fine? That i could go through it?
For example, something you worked on for years, ended with nothing. 
Can you just keep saying, 'owh its fine, im good.' Im sure you would be cryin your hearts out. YEARS paid for nothing. Nothing.
Now this is a test on you. 
Now this is within your capacity. 
Now this was fated on you.

WHAT? So why did i even start if it was gonna end like this? Fated? Isn't it too much? And if i just can't stand it, where does 'within you capacity' come in?
So what does 'la yukallifullaha nafsan illa wus'aha' really mean??

Now, now..be brief..i said it was gonna be brief, but somehow in tryin to build the atmosphere and understanding of the situation i bragged quite alot didn't i. So i apologise, and the answer will be brief.

There's two things i understood from this verse that would fade all doubts.

1) Fate is, to do it, and ask that Allah makes good out of it. If it turns out bad, then He knew it would turn out bad. If it went good, He knew too. Me? I just did it, because i didn't.

2) Within our capacity, is never what we thought was our capacity. We knew nothing about ourselves. Our capacities, capabilities, limits. He knew. Not us. Him. So if He says it is within capacity, then it sure is.
Just believe, because He knows us.

P/S: These tests, they make us stronger. We'll surely pass, if only we tried to see.


Ya Allah.Forgive me for my mistakes.Aid me with what I said.

Of Mars, Cadbury, and Chocolate

Yesterday it was hot chocolate.
A couple of days ago it was a whole block of chocolate..(finished it in half an hour)
Last week three packs of Arnotts Chocolate Biscuits.
A couple of weeks ago, it was a couple bar of Mars, Snickers, and this brand which i forgot.

Yeah, so what??

I also wouldn't know the significance of me telling you this if it weren't for my mom, who, when i was Skyping (which i really hope one day becomes a verb like googling-'Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary' so that it doesn't have the red wiggly line under it) with her, noticed that i was eating a bar of chocolate.

Now before presumptions and assumptions are made, let me clear it out for you 'the history'.
I have a big family, and i'm the 3rd, which FYI is usually considered the last of the 'pioneers' in a family of 10.
And a pioneer has only one synonym. Sacrifice.
Well, there is the privilege and power to control the other successors (which i used very well), but mainly its the sacrifice. And one of the biggest sacrifices that me and my bigger brothers made was chocolate.
In shorter words, we ended up being unattracted to chocolate at such an early age. not at all.

So somehow, here, lots of years later, i'm eating chocolate, drinking chocolate, chewing chocolate..
i'm just not yet swimming in it (which i don't quite know how...not swimming...i mean in the chocolate).
And when i realised it, it suddenly came to me a truth.

The truth.

That humans have such a soft heart. The fact that we can try and try as hard as we want to shape it in one way, yet in the end, it can always flip around and turn into something else...
and not to forget also that no matter how screwed and fixed we think it is, there's always a way for it to be shaped.

So even if we think things like;
" I'll never be able to wake up at night, because i need 6 hours of sleep, and i'm not used to it."
" I just can't cry in my prayers, because i can't understand it."
" I'll never be able to read the Quran fluently because i was never taught well when i was a kid."
" I'll never be able to stop smoking, because i'm already addicted to it."
" I'll never be able to be good, because i've been so bad before."
Who said so??Us.We said it.We limited ourselves to all of this, and in the end never even tried.
Where as we forgot, that its not us who controls our hearts. its Him.

Because;
If we really need 6 hours of sleep, then sleep at 9, ur surely gonna wake up at 3.
If we really can't cry in prayers, then cry in our dua' when we do understand what we're saying.
If we really aren't fluent in reading the Quran, then try hear it.
If we really can't stop smoking, then stop buying them.
If we really can't do good, then just stop being bad, thats good enough isn't it?
Its always changeable.

Yet again don't forget that it also means if we think that we are good enough, constantly feeling strong and consistent..there always a chance of falling.

Thats why our beloved prophet teaches us this great dua';
As narrated by Ummu Salamah radhiyallahu ‘anha saying that the dua' that Rasulullah shallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam would pray is,
Yaa muqollibal qulub tsabbit qolbi ‘ala diinik
(meaning) "O Supreme Lord that tosses and turns hearts, strengthen my heart on your religion"
(Tirmidzi, Ahmad, Hakim, Shahih Dzahabi, refer Shahihul Jami’)
So if we keep trying, and praying that Allah aids us, we'll surely change it, we'll surely sustain it. it'll surely work.
Because believe me, everything is changeable. Go look around, there's proof anywhere.
like me and the chocolates..You'll surely find a way.


Ya Allah.
Strengthen and sustain our hearts on this submission

Life Is a Test

Life is a Test

“Lo! We have placed all that is on the earth as an ornament thereof that We may try them: which of them is best in conduct.” Surat Al-Kahf, Verse 7
 
If you think about this verse, you’d come to understand an important concept in Islam: This earth, and this dunya was created to test you. It doesn’t matter whether you’re rich or poor, old or young, smart or not so smart, hardworking or lazy, we’re all getting tested. What’s needed from us is trying to pass this test in every situation so we could be the “best in conduct”. 
 
What’s this test for? Simply put: To see which of us is worthy of Jannah. 
 
It’s a shockingly simple truth, but we’re completely heedless about it. We live life thinking  will be here for ever and not realizing that we’ll one day meet our Lord. This heedless makes us not ‘feel the test’, and when we don’t feel this test, we stop being productive and using Allah’s blessings for others benefit. We become selfish and lazy, and just want to enjoy ourselves and relax when in fact this life was not created for that.
 
Life being a test is not a ‘bad’ thing, if anything, it’s a blessing. It’s a blessing so that we get to plough in this dunya to reap the benefits in Akhira.
 
A post shared from Productive Muslim
 
Ya Allah.Make myself worthy of these tests.
For I seek Your strength and aid.

Just Say It

Ok, so i was strolling around the uni searching for a spot to pray, which fyi, is what i always do. Infact i've even allocated a specific area as my praying area in nearly all the buildings that i study in. (So UOW is now the uni with the most musolla's eh?)


And as i finally found a new spot, i suddenly remembered about what happened earlier that day when i was late to the group meeting, (which i am always every week) because i had to go and pray. What happened was, as i entered the room, i said;
"Hey, guys..sorry again for being late, i had to go pray."
 And they said;
"Yeah, its alrite, no worries"

Well, the first thing that i noticed was i actually mentioned 'i had to' rather than 'i wanted to'??
~hm, is prayer something i considered as a have to???Is it just something considered compulsory to me??
yeah, i know it is compulsory, but it also should've been something more. It was my charger, my refiller, the place to seek calmness, forgiveness, for me to nag, to ask, to complain..
EVERYTHING, and i still said i HAD to?

The truth is, that isn't what im trying to share now, that, up there, was just some bit of emotions expressed, but insyaAllah, prayers aren't what i have to do, but what i want to do...

The most important and major thing that i noticed was that i told the guys i went to pray, and they cared less. No, what i meant is they didn't care.
What im trying to say here is that:

"Why should we be afraid of saying that I AM A MUSLIM?"

The problem is, in the middle of a society, where everything is peaceful, no wars, no threat, why should we even hide it.
Where is our 'izzah?
The pride of being a muslim.
The pride of being humble servants of this true deen.

Because as long as on is unable to live wholly as a muslim, and have 'izzah in it, muslims will always be seen as the underdog.
So change our prospective, lets relive our true pride.
And next time, when someone comes up to you and asks;

Why waste nearly ten minutes of your life, five times a day?
Why sweat your head with the scarf?
Why even bother to get out of your bed, too early in the morning?
Why advice?
Why read the quran?
Whats with the halal food?
Why?

Just say it. Because I am a MUSLIM. Because i'm proud of it.

If you do not help your Prophet, (it does not matter): Allah did help him before when the disbelievers forced him to go away from his home, and he was but the second of two: when the two were in the cave; when he was saying to his Companion, "Be not distressed: indeed Allah is with us." Then Allah sent down peace of mind to him from Himself, and helped him with the forces you did not see, and made the word of the disbelievers abased. And Allah's Word is always supreme, for Allah is All-Mighty, All-Wise. 
At-Taubah 9:40


Ya Allah, I pray for life with iman, death with iman,
and grant me Your jannah with this iman.

Endings

Today i woke up, (from my afternoon nap) and as soon as i opened my eyes, a sudden question kept ringing in my head...
Over and over again...
It was as if i'd had it in my dreams...

The question was;
"Why does everything in this world seem to have no end?"
 
Weird isn't. The fact that theoretically everything in this world is limited to this world, but as we walk around, gazing at all that exists, we see things cycling over and over again. We see people holding firm to what they possess, grasping this world as if it could last with them forever. 
After one thing, comes another.
After something is lost, another will be bought
After a game ends, another will start
After a movie finishes, another will come out
 
Limitless.Endless.
 
And then?


Ya Allah loosen my grip from this world.
Remove it from my heart, for only you know its condition.

A Murabbi

Now before i start, we've gotta do some arabic lessons.
Murabbi, means...er..why the hard work..if you just google translate..(as seem is now the current gig) would mean, raiser. And i think that definition will do.

So yesterday i called my mom.
I was complaining (as i always do everytime i call her).. about the problem i was having here. About how life was so lonely. Huh?? Lonely??
No..this isn't the physical lonely..
And surely NOT the emotional lonely..
I was lonely..spiritually..

Now if you get what i mean..then you would also understand..that when someone is to keep sustaining and strengthening oneself in this perfect way of life..he would need a few factors that could boost him to keep going..or should i just say to have istiqamah.
There'll have to be a syllabus that could be followed (so the process occurs gradually)
There'll have to be an atmosphere that could live up the process
And there HAS to be a Murabbi. A raiser. To help. To advise at times of hardships. To correct when wronged. To become a source of inspiration.

Back to the story.
So i was telling my mom that i had the syllabus, but how am i supposed to work on it if there was no atmosphere, and especially at the time when i have no murabbi??

She just smiled..(it was a video call, what do you expect??)
And said..Allah is always there. And isn't HE the BEST Murabbi??

I was dumbstruck. And then i realised the things, basic things that i have forgotten.
All this while, Allah was ALWAYS my murabbi.
HE raised me..gave me problems, and taught me to learn from it..
HE aided me when i needed it..
HE showed me this path..ensured i stayed on it..
HE was always helping even when i nagged and forgot..
And isn't Allah, THE source of inspiration??..Subhanallah..
And i could still ask, where HE was??

Its true, we do need human murabbi, but i forgot the main and premier one was Allah..
He was the One who raised Adam..
He was the One who greatly divided the oceans for Moses..
He was the One who lovingly aided our beloved prophet Muhammad SAW..

So now let us be Mus'ab bin Umair..
Who, when was separated with the Prophet to Madinah, had Allah the Almighty as his only Murabbi..and not only turned a whole city around, but also prepared the FIRST Muslim Federation..
MasyaAllah, and how did he succeed this??

Allah, the best murabbi, made it succeed..=)



 
Ya Allah.You are my impetus.

My brothers, lets move together (يا اخوتي هيا نمضي سويا)



 
That the kuffar will attack and Muslim blood will be shed
because were obsessed with the dunya and abandon jihad
that we love this life, and we'd hate to be dead
 
and until we return to our deen, this condition remains
that we stand humiliated until we rethink our aims

we are here to establish Islam on this earth
so by the will of Allah!
lets give Islam a rebirth!

Never a second.

In Your name O Allah,


Here, in Wollongong, its already the autumn break. Well, its just about to end actually.
And in this load of free time, i see people, grunting, complaining, unsatisfied with how bored their life is.
After the games, the movies, the facebooking, people would start hovering around the house.
The phrase 'Nothing to do' is heard nearly every hour here.

And so i started thinking. Should there ever be 'nothing' to do??
I mean, practically there's always everything that could be done. After playing LOL (google it), there's DOTA (google it too), and when that's over there's always COD, and PES (yeah, they're just all games), then if you're tired of playing, you can watch movies, Gnomeo Juliet, I am No.4, Transformers 4, Spiderman, Superman, and all other man...then you would also have the anime's..wow, i mean i just can't list them all down. And even if you've finished it all, you can always do it again, and again, and again...

So tell me, how in the world can someone get bored?? And yet they still said it.
Then that's when i saw it, this world's pleasures, every bit of it, can never satisfy a human's heart, no matter how endless it can be. One would always ask for more. And more.
And in the end we'll just get bored. Why?
Because we, humans, our pure desires was really to submit to Him.

"Am I not your Lord?" They said, "Yes, we have testified."
Al-Araf 7:172

So when each and every second of our life..
we would have Allah in our conscience, or even if we can't, then at least acknowledging that we are ALWAYS under His conscience..
 Then insyaAllah, the time will never be enough.

Never. Never would there even be a second unspared,  there will always be things we could do, prayers we could make, good deeds that we could find. And we would keep going and going until we know we're satisfied. Satisfied of what??

Satisfied, that one day we would wake up, to find that the doors of Jannah are shining in front of our eyes, wide open, and then all the time we spent, the burden we felt, the sorrow we wept, would be gone. Because there, our greatest dreams is finally reality, our highest hopes is finally true.
And there, Allah will be waiting.
That is the satisfactory that we'll get.
InsyaAllah, InsyaAllah.

Logitech X530

No.This is not a product review.
And no,I'm not promoting for Logitech.
(but if i get commission,i might..)

But today Allah taught me something with this:

So lets start with a story.
A month ago, i borrowed a friends speaker, i bet you can guess which model. And what happened was, as i returned it, the sub-woofer,(which for those who've never seen these things, is the largest rectangular black box out of the 6) could not function anymore. And so in realising that it could only have broken under my care, i took full responsibility for it.

And guess what, i tried fixing it myself. I know many of you would be assuming things got worse, but Alhamdulillah, i have a policy that when i open things up, i wouldn't touch anything as long i knew what they were, and in this case i knew nothing that was inside it. So i  screwed it back close, and decided to send it to a computer shop to be fixed. People were saying, that here in Australia, if you get something broken, don't fix it, coz it'll cost more than buying a new one. But i was determined, that it was just a minor problem, so i still sent it. And they asked for the whole set, or else they won't know where the problem was,so i gave them it.

Two weeks. I called and asked. They said it was sent back to the manufacturer to be fixed. I started feeling suspicious. The speakers were second hand, and i even had opened it myself, which meant the warranty was supposed to be expired. Were they lying to stall time??

Making it short, a month passes by, and this morning, i phoned the shop for the 7th time,questioning the progress of the speakers, and asking it to be returned (because my friend didn't care anymore if the woofers can't work and i was also full of suspicion that something bad had happened to it.). And suddenly he says:
"We've got you a new one"
And i was like:
"What??!! I never told you to buy a new one, isn't there a customer policy stating that any decisions must be referred to the customer??!!"
I was frustrated. They're not supposed to do that. I can't afford to pay for a new one. I'm really on a budget this month, i traveled alot and the costs were quiet high. He then told me to come over and take it.
My head was boiling. I told my housemate and i started unleashing the dissatisfaction. The anger was building up. I got prepared, googled the Australian Consumer Policies. Thinking about contacting my law friend.

Finally, when everything was clotted into this huge rage, i took a shower and suddenly remembered my moms reminders,
"Make an opportunity to pray dhuha everyday, no matter what happens."
And i began questioning myself, this is no reason for me to miss it.
So i took a wudhu and prayed, and all the rage was gone. You know, that after the dhuha, there's this prayer that asks Allah;
"if all the ni'mat in this world is hard to achieve, then i pray that you make it easy, because it is you who controls all."
So i added,
"if this is a test for me, then i accept it. maybe i have been misspending it, or misusing it. please make it easy."

So in the end, when i got to the shop (yeah, with the money and all), i made my best face and met him. And subhanallah, alhamdulillah, he said:
"Actually the manufacturer replaced the speaker with a new one, for free. They considered redeemable. So all you have to pay for is the postage fee. That's 20 dollars."

Alhamdulillah.

Basics?

Today i came across this hadith twice. Coincidence? Lets just consider it reminders.
And i'll re-quote it, just for the sake reference.

From the Amir al-Muminin Abu Hafs 'Umar ibn al-Khattab, radiya'llahu 'anhu, that he said, "I heard the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, saying, 'Actions are only by intentions, and every man has only that which he intended. Whoever's emigration is for Allah and His Messenger then his emigration is for Allah and His Messenger. Whoever's emigration is for some worldly gain which he can acquire or a woman he will marry then his emigration is for that for which he emigrated'." The two Imams of the hadith scholars narrated it - Abu Abdullah Muhammad ibn Isma'il ibn Ibrahim ibn al-Mughirah ibn Bardizbah al-Bukhari and Abu'l-Husein Muslim ibn al-Hajjaj ibn Muslim al-Qushayri an-Naysaburi - in their two sahih books which are the most sahih books compiled.

Yeah, i know, most of you would be saying things like.."this is basics bro..this is gonna get boring!!"
But there are a few things i got today that i think would really be valuable if i shared it, so pay attention first before you start bragging on how much you've memorized it.
1. Notice that the narrator of this hadith was no ordinary person. notice how you can't find many hadiths narrated by him. understanding this, we could conclude that this hadith was something very very important for Umar.
2. That this hadith was actually placed as the FIRST hadith in ALL of Imam Nawawi's books. yet again such priority and importance.

So alrite, you get the point. its important. and its talking about being ikhlas in your 'amal.
So that makes it easier for me to go on.
So you would be saying,
"ive never had problems with my niat. i know that when i do things, its for Allah"
So maybe its true.
But just remember, the basis of 'amal is,
To do something,with full effort,by sacrificing your money, your energy, your time,sacrificing all that you thought was personally all yours
and in the end
when its done,to leave it in such perfectness that everyone would be astonished and ask who did it. but then you would have left,silently,asking for nothing back,no words of gratitude,no symbol of appreciation from anyone,to not even think of getting it.

Are we always like that??
My dear friends, with such delicacies of the heart, it is said to be impossible.we will always lose to the pleasure of being praised, we would always be proud when others see, and sometimes we even intend to show.

So now what? How to win?
Well, the thing that i got, was...
"Just renew your niat everytime,every second, at every incedent. because to fight the heart that always shifts, is to have a niat that always reminds"

No worries mate

I came across this verse today.
"If Allah should aid you, no one can overcome you; but if He should forsake you, who is there that can aid you after Him? And upon Allah let the believers rely." 
Ali ‘Imran, 3:160
No one can overcome you.
If a person has the help of Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala, He will support this person to achieve the unachievable against all odds.
AGAINST ALL ODDS. 

 
So you see?
Why do we even need to worry about how difficult life is, because if there's Allah, nothing can stop us from achieving what we desire, as long as he planned it for us...

Ya Allah.Forgive me for my mistakes.Aid me with what I said.

Love 03

Allah's Messenger, sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam, said:
"If Allah loves someone He calls (angel) Jibreel and says: I love so-and-so, so you love him. Jibreel loves him, and calls the other angels in Heaven to love that person. They love him,then his love will be made upon earth, and he becomes loved. "And if Allah hates someone He calls Jibreel and says: I hate so-and-so and you hate him. Jibreel hates him and calls the angels in Heaven and says: Allah hates so-and-so, so you all hate him. They all hate him, and his hatred is made upon earthand he becomes hated." - Muslim


So here's it. The Finale.
And in this post i'll get straight to the point. No more flashbacks, no more stories, no more analogies, and surely no more floating points..

1) Why i began with a story about Yusuf as a kid, was because i wanted everyone to know that no matter how clean and perfect a person is, Allah will always test him/her with love, because thats what'll make him/her stronger.And that's why we're called human. But the story of yusuf as a kid  also shows how  a person  who's inexperienced and naive treats love. Desperate rite? So in other words, everyone'll encounter it, but if ur not ready, thats what'll happen.

2) There will always be tests. The stronger your principle, the stronger the test. Even if you think you're strong enough, Allah will always test you with something you could never expect..but whatever it is, if ur principles are firm, you'll still pass, and that if you say no such thing as couples except after marriage, then be firm with it, no matter what people say, no matter how hard a girl or guy attracts or 'seduces' you.
(if you don't understand this point, its ok, bcoz even i couldn't after rereading it)

3) Never ever try to start nothing when you know that it could become something. ???. What i meant is if you know that you have feelings for someone, don't even TRY to initiate contact. Sometimes we deliberately do so, whereas in our hearts we knew how it would eventually turn out...so be careful NEVER start.

4) Accept that whoever you are, you'll always fall for a person. Especially if you're a guy, coz guys are a bit more sensitive in these love issues...BUT when you do fall for someone, NEVER EVER cooperate with it..acknowledge it you must, but to flow with it you certainly MUSN'T. Don't tell her that you like her, don't tell your friend that you like her, don't even tell yourself that you like her...just keep it within, its your secret and no one should know..try to even get a few metres between yourself and her, it helps in calming the feelings, and in a week or so it'll be gone.

5) Believe me, that one can never intend to help the other gender, without existing in his heart the slightest false intention, and again, especially if ur a guy, the intentions could easily change...seriously, i'm a guy too.
So there's no such thing as trying to help him/her, or trying to guide him/her, without feeling something else..
Hey..there's always many other people of the same gender awaiting your aid, why even look at the other gender?? Unless....ehm..
You understand rite?

So thats all, what i tried to convey throughout these 3 sequels..
No, not that i am a person who despise love..(I am a romantic person myself..believe me..haha..)

But what i really wanted to say was, if you're really into it, if you really think you're ready, then go on, get to the marriage and don't linger anymore, because if you do, many unwanted things could happen..but be aware, that if u're marrying just because of love, then that love can fade, but if you marry because you love and it's then tied with iman, then trust me the iman shall prevail.

But if you think you know your time, and that you know when you're not ready yet, then be firm. And even if you find the one you've been looking for, but you're unable to tie the knot (and you know why yourself), then tell yourself to wait. Tell yourself that there's always Allah who knows all. Wait, and the time'll come even if you don't do anything or even if you do something. So why even try to do something if suddenly he/she doesn't finally become yours??

And whatever it is. Love Allah first, and He'll surely guide you and bless you for whatever love you seek.

Allah's Messenger, sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam, said:
"If Allah loves someone He calls (angel) Jibreel and says: I love so-and-so, so you love him. Jibreel loves him, and calls the other angels in Heaven to love that person. They love him,then his love will be made upon earth, and he becomes loved. "And if Allah hates someone He calls Jibreel and says: I hate so-and-so and you hate him. Jibreel hates him and calls the angels in Heaven and says: Allah hates so-and-so, so you all hate him. They all hate him, and his hatred is made upon earthand he becomes hated."
Muslim

PS: Apologies for yet another long post..
PPS: The story of Yusuf in Love02 is fully based on incidents that occured around me. Though not all were of mine, but believe me, they all were true. So if you try rereading it, you'll maybe notice that you've gone through it too..??

I'm the boss. So now listen.

In his name, I begin 


Today something triggered in me, not some unleashed force like the jedi or Jinchuuriki force..but a certain strength that i've long lost. The strength to control.
Today i learnt back the lesson i forgot. That in becoming a muslim, it is you who gives the orders, it is you controls.

And alhamdulillah, today i implemented it.
Every morning, i forced myself to do it.
Every time i saw the Quran, i forced myself to read it.
Every day at 10.30, i forced myself to pray dhuha.
Every time i hear the azan, i forced myself to the masjid.
Every time after prayers, i forced myself to pray ba'diah.

Because I know.
If i waited, for the proper time, the proper mood, the proper intentions..
It would never come, and in the end i would just not do it.
And still wait..and wait..and wait..

Ikhlas??

Hey, ikhlas wouldn't exist if there was no enforcement. And Allah knows what plays in my heart..more than you do, even more than i do.

So be the boss of your heart.
And NEVER wait.
Coz believe me, the word waiting never ends.

For each (such person) there are (angels) in succession, before and behind him: They guard him by command of Allah. Verily never will Allah change the condition of a people until they change it themselves (with their own souls). But when (once) Allah willeth a people's punishment, there can be no turning it back, nor will they find, besides Him, any to protect.
Ar-Ra'adu 13:11

To turn back and see

"I dunno, but somehow matters have lately come out of hand. I've been seeing many useless things, done many regretful actions and  waited too long for guidance..please help me.."

Every once and again, one must always turn back to see what one has done. If it is to be regretted, then regret it one must. If it is to be continued, then sustain and persevere it.

And so today, this post is about all that. Because today i found out that its been too long...really too long since i look backed.
Looked back at what??

My blog?
Yeah, its true, maybe lately i have been posting because of others, being happy that there are more followers, making my posts as interesting as it could, so that more are interested??
Yeah, maybe i have been too obsessed about it, ushering others to read it, making it as if it was the reason i made it, being proud when others commented, gleaming when people speak of it.
Yeah, maybe the word ikhlas has long not been questioned, because the word 'ujub has long taken control...

My heart?
Its true, maybe i have been giving it to others, showing affection to others, just too much, i put it in too many places, gave it to too many occupations, whereas to return it, to submit it, to bow it in front of You...i've totally forgotten...
Its true, i have been trying to attract others, making things or speaking of useless matters, with other intentions, just so that i could get more attention?
And and then i still could keep bragging about not getting Your love??

My prayers?
Though i pray five times a day..i keep telling myself it's enough, that i needn't do too much..but i forget, since when was Your blessings to me ever enough, since when did You ever stop..
Though i keep saying, my prayers, my ibadah, my life and my death are all for You,
Though i repeat so many times, that to You only i submit and to You only i ask for aid,
Though in every prostration i praise, that You are the highest and that there are non higher than You,
And though so many times,
Though so many times...
I still forget. And with every salam, it all ends. It is all over...
You are no more the one highest in my heart..
You are no more the place i submit, the One i ask for Aid..
You are no more the reason i live, the reason i would die..

So now i'm coming back to see..what i left behind..
And what i see is you, always there waiting for me..

Ya Allah, maybe i forgot who You are, maybe i forgot who i am. 
For these...are my words of regret. 
For these...are my words of repent. 
Ya Allah, Remind me, Forgive me, Bless me, Love me,

Like the knife

This anology suddenly fruited out in BTN and it has become one of my favourites now..
You see, the idea of a knife was initially created to replace stones;
for cutting, for cooking, for hunting and you could even do 'amal with it by using it for slaughtering..
but one day, when one person suddenly used it to kill, to hurt, to threaten,
then suddenly knives became a weapon, a hazardous item seen by all people..
Now..where did its so multifunctioned benefit go now??

This is exactly what is happening in Islam..
You see an ustaz giving a preach and you say,
"Yesterday he was late for Jumaat prayers..he's really not that 'alim, i dont wanna hear his preach"


Someone invites you to join a gathering, discussing about how to live as a Muslim and you say,
"My friend has already joined..yet he's still a pervert, what difference should it make if i join?"

What is that you're doing..staying away??
STAYING AWAY from what?? Islam??
NEVER. i repeat, NEVER blame Islam for what a muslim does..
because Islam wasn't taught by any naive human..Islam is from Allah, the Creator and Superior..
so should you be questioning such perfectness??
Those mistakes, weakness, misunderstandings, are all from humans..and aren't we prone to that??

Dear brothers and sisters..i apologise if this has suddenly become emotional, because I've been hearing these phrases so many times that i thought its about time i lined it out..
let whoever speaks and shares knowledge about Islam share it, for what he brings is the truth, for who he is and what he's done doesn't matter
let whoever listens and follows discussions about Islam stay, for what he hears are truth, or how he understands and practices it is between him and Allah

Infact, if you think you see other intentions then why don't you try and do it..
Try and share knowledge about Islam..
Try and join Islamic gatherings, Islamic groups and listen..
And then you'll know that EVEN if there exists the slightest false intentions, it usually comes because you're human and it will always comes..

Like the knife rite?
if you see a murderer, can you blame the knife he holds??
or he who handles it? Even if you gave him a pen, he could still kill rite??
So don't blame Islam for all the misunderstandings you see..
don't blame Islam for every weakness a muslim shows..
don't blame Usrahs just because your friend is still useless..
but blame YOURSELF for seeing whats wrong, but for not being there to make it better..



Ya Allah.Forgive me for my mistakes.Aid me with what I said.

How Much??

Just to give an acceptable reason in why i yet again made this loong break..i can just say that i attended BTN camp..now note here that i DID not state whether i had to, or i wanted to or if i was interested to..i put i attended. 
Why? because somehow whatever reasons that might have emerged at the time i arrived at the camp, it all should just be put aside..because sincerely, i think this is one of the most 'crammed full of info' camps i had ever participated in..and i kinda liked it because it gave me time to think alot and read alot of things which all this while i kept aside..

So back to the main topic, this post is dedicated especially for a certain incident that really pulled my heart at the end of the camp...
The incident is as follows..
We were all bidding farewell at the camp..and suddenly i saw a guy, lingering around as if waiting for someone..everyone was like all bustling to go home but he was as if trying to wait..
Why?? That was the exact question hovering in my mind when i saw him

So just FYI, i am a person who loves analysing, so in seeing him, i accidently made some, and i bet you know how it goes that when once you guess, you could stand to wait just for the sake of wanting to know whether your presumptions were right rite? And thats what i did..

So a couple of minutes after that, a girl passed the guy, and the guy called her..
She stopped.
Then he called a friend who was waiting there with him,and he said something..
(Opps, sorry..forgot to tell..i was in the bus already so i kinda couldnt hear)
Back to the story, the friend was holding a camera...then..believe it or not..
The girl signalled something which i guess meant to decline, and she just took off...
Yeah you could probably see now, that he wanted to take a picture with her.




Now, speaking as a guy, I TOTALLY respect what she did...
What? you think it was simple, dont tell me everyone could do that..i mean..for guys yeah, we could easily push aside anything...but for a girl, it must be REALLY hard...
So then i began questioning myself, what made her act as so??

How can someone so fragile stand out and clear up her position with such pure bravery..
I mean, he might not even see her after this..she could just take the snap, and get going..
or could she??
then why didnt she??
Because today we see girls, some so claim to have understood Islam, some don't even care..
but what matters the most is nearly all would melt when provoked by men..and at that time all understandings and beliefs just vanished into thin air..WHY?
Have we men got magic?? Or maybe we have these flying Cupids??
As a guy, i apologise but the truth is, Allah has created you girls with a softer heart, and the heart has tendency to be melted by men. 

If you ask me, at that time, my heart was full of pride, proud to know that there still exists women in this world that acknowledged something much larger than her petite body..
Something that when touched, responsed perfectly and wisely, that even the toughest of hearts could look down and surrender..
What I saw..was PRINCIPLES
What I saw..was VALUES


So my question to you now..

To what extent can you stand when confronted with these situations??
How FIRM are your principles??
How much do YOU cost??

Ya Allah.For women are like the ribs.
I pray, meet them with men who know and care that they're bent.

Love 02

Al-Baqarah 2:165

Yet there are men who take (for worship) others besides Allah, as equal (with Allah.: They love them as they should love Allah. But those of Faith are overflowing in their love for Allah. If only the unrighteous could see, behold, they would see the penalty: that to Allah belongs all power, and Allah will strongly enforce the penalty.


Ok..so there's been this loooong break..again..
But you all must know..this is my FIRST sequel..and initiating a sequel..isn't as easy as it seems..because once you have an idea..it doesnt stay that long. so to discuss a certain matter..and generate the same idea to continue the discussion..just takes a lot of effort..and with the time constraint and everything, plus the way of organising my words..its just too hard to be put into words (really??)

Hm..actually all this complaining and moaning..were just to justify the fact that i was unable to comply with the promise of asap..
I'm sorry..

BUT..however late it may be..here it is..
and in relevance to the long wait, i'll make it a long post, insyaAllah...have strength dear friends, and keep reading..

LOVE 02
.WARNING.
IF U HAVEN'T READ LOVE01, YOU SHOULD OR U MIGHT MISUNDERSTAND THINGS !

Now in this sequel..i will have to make a new approach..and this approach will be in a story. And this story is about..hm..
lets give him a name..how about Yusuf?
his age?..lets start with 10
OK..so..it'll be about Yusuf..the no ordinary kid..(but not from 'no ordinary family'.a joke, huhu donno whether u understand or not)

Now why i chose this name must not be questioned because it is MY story rite??
ok.here goes.

Yusuf is a kid..he goes to an islamic school..(MUST we give the school a name also??, naah that would be too much)..and being 10 years old, he's living his childhood life at the peak. no worries..no exams..no nothing. All FUN.just the way a kid should live..

11 years old..something in him changes. He begins to get attracted to girls. Now remember this is an islamic school, so Yusuf gets interested in this certain girl..shes cute, bright and nice, but he knows that boys and girls aren't supposed to be loving, though he doesn't really understand why..but being a kid, it was his first time..and the feeling crushed his logic mind.
Such that when she raised her hand to answer in class, he would raise it too and when she had to ride the bus home, he would ride it too, even when she said her ambition was to be a nurse, he would say his was to be a doctor, all just for the sake of showing similarity. He scratched her name on his arm, he wrote it with marker on his foot,  would shout her name when he was alone, secretly stalking everywhere she went. He would write a letter using his left hand, expressing his feelings and everything in his heart, but then deliberately blurred out the sender, lied when suspected by the discipline teacher, and proved it with his right handwriting. He crazed for her, WHY?? Because he was in love..

So as he lived for another two years b4 ending his primary school, he just kept that feeling to himself...and also his bestest friend, and the best friend of his bestest friend, and any other best friend, frankly speaking, nearly everyone knew, but the girl....didn't.

3 years after his first love, he entered secondary school, a school that emphasises Islam as the true way of life..(*in other words an islamic school, but sincerely i never liked that word, i'll tell you why next time). It must be noted here that this school separates the male and female education. So there he had time to think about his feelings properly without suddenly bumping into any girls that might attract him.
He then learnt that love must be controlled, and loving Allah and living for Him is the PROPER obsession. So there on he stopped loving her...but the feeling would never fade, it always hovered around somewhere in his heart, sometimes emerging in his dreams, sometimes disturbing in his daydreams..

15, he took PMR and After PMR he changed school..and entered a mixed school. Initially he was ok..principles still strong, but months pass and again his feelings came, this time to someone really close.
It started with interest.
Then he liked her because she had a way that showed commitment to Islam.
Then he cared for her. So he had a mission. His intentions were pure, to change her into someone better. Lillahita'ala.
He got her number. They text each other. Not so often, but occasionally. Like when one would start with tawakkal for exams, then it would go on to about 10 to 20 messages, and gudnite. Now lets just call it seasonally shall we.
But before anything could get serious, Yusuf realised his mistake, and by not replying to her, she spontaneously realised where the relationship was going to. So they stopped.

However, something inside him had changed, his principles had crumbled and all that was left was the wall. He turned into a person who could fall and melt to any girl kind enough to him, it was critical, if u knew him at that time and even just sent a simple letter thanking him for teaching u biology, he would fall for you.
Pervert?? Call him whatever you want because that was him.
But alhamdulillah, with the wall, the obsessions were kept inside.just feelings..nothing more.
 He lasted for a year with the wall, but  a tragedy happened and he himself let the cat out of the bag. With Allah's aid, the girl didn't notice but others saw it clearly enough.

Being traumatic of this incident, Yusuf regretted and developed a new strategy. He called it the love transfer. Wherever he went, Yusuf would pronounce to himself a girl, kind beyond dreams, smart and fair as much, as an admirer that only he would be aware of. But the trick was, she would have to be someone beyond contact, someone he knew he would never reach.


The first week..success
The first month..success
The first year..success
The second year..also began with success
But in the middle of it..his worst dreams came true..his strategy had found its glitch. He forgot that the one who controls is only Allah. What happened was somehow he got in touch with the girl he admired. Either it was deliberate or a coincident, only Allah knows. And for a while he was lost. His heart had built up pillars of adoration to her and suddenly she was in front of him. He had dreamed to see her and here she was. No hesitation, no fear. He confidently made the approach. He looked back at her everytime she glanced at him. He smiled at her even when she couldn't see. He had become the old him. He was no more the Yusuf he knew in his early secondary school.

But remember, with every dark comes light, and Allah showed him back the path. Though reluctant to return fully embracing Allah's love, time and Hidayah processed him. He learned back the lessons he forgot. He loved her but it was just love. The truth was, he knew that if it came to marriage she just wasn't suitable yet. So why was he playing with his heart. Why did he even let the feelings flower up in his heart?
Why? Don't ask me, ask him.

And so after many hard days of cleansing his heart, he came back to Allah, realising the mistakes he had done all this while, he finally put the love to Allah as priority..and though through time he would sometimes fall, he accepted them as tests from Allah to build him into a stronger person.

Ok
for you all level-headed readers here, i know by now you'd be questioning, why the heck would i wanna know about some stupid kids love story rite??

So here's the golden opportunity not many bloggers give, you are free to comment on whatever you want, because this post ends here.

P/S: The no.3 is one of my favourite numbers...(other than 15)

Ya Allah, for my heart is only for You
guide me to Your love

The 'Sense'ble Lesson

In the name of Allah,
He who when sees, sees everything 
He who when hears, hears anything
He who when understands, understands all things

Now when discussing about senses, we could come back to the basics in science, where we (hoping that you all also have a scientific educational background) learned about our the senses in the human body. correct me if im wrong, it was in form 2 maybe?
We learned about what its made of..
the heat sensors, oval windows (semicircular canals?), vitreous humour
How it functions..
vibrations transferred into impulses by the cochlea? images on the retina? through the auditory nerves and grey matter?
And if i'm not mistaken, even to the extent of the consequences that might occur to our body if it malfunctions...

"Err,Hello...Hi, i'm bintuqamar, i'm a baccalaureate in pre-med..i got 4.00 for my first sem, 3.95 for the second and here i am reading some nonsense guy taking electrical engineering, trying to flag on something medical??Ewww!!.." (because its a girl)

Alrite2, even if ur not a pre-med student..or a med student..or even a girl,i apologise for that, and also for the effort in bringing out one of my nostalgic knowledge..maybe i missed them too much..

Whatever it is..my point here is that in this world, we claim to understand matters to such a high extent, yet we still question ourselves why the heck do we even learn them. I mean you could know about every single part there is in your body but would you even know why they exist??

In this context, comes the verse;

وَلَقَدْ ذَرَأْنَا لِجَهَنَّمَ كَثِيرًا مِّنَ الْجِنِّ وَالإِنسِ لَهُمْ قُلُوبٌ لاَّ يَفْقَهُونَ بِهَا وَلَهُمْ أَعْيُنٌ لاَّ يُبْصِرُونَ بِهَا وَلَهُمْ آذَانٌ لاَّ يَسْمَعُونَ بِهَا أُوْلَـئِكَ كَالأَنْعَامِ بَلْ هُمْ أَضَلُّ أُوْلَـئِكَ هُمُ الْغَافِلُونَ
 And certainly We have created for Hell many of the jinn and mankind;  they have hearts with which they fail to understand; and they have eyes with which they fail to see; and they have ears with which they fail to hear. They are like cattle - indeed, even more astray. Such are utterly heedless
(Al-A'araf 7:179)

Here Allah explains to us, that in life, we must comprehend and understand the use of these perfect senses Allah has given us. BUT understanding alone is not enough, because there is a point, where IF we, mankind  fail to benefit the faculties of observation, hearing and reasoning, then it comes back to the first point..
HELL
And don't ask me why, bcoz Allah has cleared it crystal enough..
If we can't understand like we should, see things like we should, and listen to what we should..then how much better are we from cows and sheep. We'll be like filthy, corrupted and heedless creations wouldn't we?? And what use would that be rite??

So how should i actually use them??

What, haven't you been using them for the past decades??

Just use it as we always have, just with something new;When we see, stare (not too long, or people will stare back) and ask, am i seeing dunnya or akhirah.
When we hear, prick up our ears and ask, am i listening to reminders or entertainment.
When our hearts begin to love this world and contemplate about its condition in it..stop it..and tell it to love Allah, understand Him and our status in his visions


 Ya Allah.
For my sight, my hearing, my heart, are all yours.
Then let it function only for You.

Urgh

Dear sisters (and brothers too if ur interested), come, please watch..


Yeah, i deliberately covered up the TV channel..lets just say all matters of 'prevention' must be applied..

This is Allah's opinion.

Al-Ahzab 59. Oh Prophet! Tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to draw their cloaks (veils) all over their bodies (i.e. screen themselves completely except the eyes or one eye to see the way). That will be better, that they should be known (as free respectable women so as not to be annoyed.
and this.

An-Nur 31. And tell the believing women to lower their gaze and be modest, and to display of their adornment only that which is apparent, andto draw their veils over their bosoms, and not to reveal their adornmentsave to their own husbands or fathers or husbands' fathers, or their sonsor their husbands' sons, or their brothers or their brothers' sons orsisters' sons, or their women, or their slaves, or male attendants who lackvigour, or children who know naught of women's nakedness. And let them notstamp their feet so as to reveal what they hide of their adornment. Andturn unto Allah together, O believers, in order that ye may succeed.

Hadith?

[Sunann Abi Dawud Hadith No. 3577]. Aisha (RA) mentioned the women of Ansar, praised them and said good words about them. She then said: "When Surat an-Nur came down, they took the curtains, tore them and and made veils from them."
