Safety first

In regard to one shocking news of tahfiz school that has been the talk of the town, I can see two types of people. 1, a group that says that safety feature is a MUST and 2, a group that is saying that people of group 1 are simply bashing tahfiz schools to their own benefit.

Most of the people in group 2 are pro tahfiz schools. Some might even come from there, or some even plan to send their kids to study there.

I have nothing against tahfiz schools. I know many successful people from there and I can say without a doubt, being a hafiz/hafizah has so much benefit. Even I hope I can become a hafizah myself one day.

The only thing is how group 2 people are being sensitive and defensive. It is in fact a fact that most tahfiz schools (I say most because I know some are really well maintained) are not well equipped with safety features. And that is DANGEROUS and sad.

The issue raised was merely on the safety feature and even our firemen have mentioned it. It is never an issue of blaming the owner of the tahfiz being the cause of the fire.

I find it's funny that some even agrees and starts sharing when this one guy wrote:

"Selepas punca sebenar di dedahkan, akhirnya Allah tunjukkan siapa yang bertanggungjawab. Allah muliakan Us Zahid Mahmood Al Hafiz."

Hurm... group 1 people did not say the owner started the fire did they? From what I see, people are angry that it is PERCEIVED as if he takes this issue lightly by saying that the kids mati syahid.

So, I guess we should still stick to the issue of safety here. Don't get carried away by emotion just because we probably do not favour the person that comes out with a certain statement.

p/s: I personally feel that it is better to have your own view than reading an article somewhere and agree to it and thereafter tell people as if it is your own view. Especially those who love to copy and paste or forward personal view articles. Please think before you send.

Not feeling well

The average temperature in Madinah and Makkah is around 40 degrees Celsius. I was okay in Madinah but I got a bit of fever and runny nose before pushing off to Makkah. But it was still under control.

When I arrived in Makkah, I got a bad cough. It is continuous till now and each time I cough, I can feel the temperature increases. Panadols after panadols have been consumed and bottles of water have been taken to cool down my fever.

At this point, I just miss my mother.

I miss going to masjid with her and I miss having her checking on me when I am not well.



Right after I posted this write up, my mom asked me of my well being here :'( right on cue

Can You Please Say Thank You and Please?

The moment I see someone who uses "please", "sorry" , and "thank you" often in conversation, he gains my respect.

When there is none, it is just a shame.

Such a pity that people can't change overnight.

Amalan sunnah

Sometimes I just wonder why people would prefer something that is not sunnah. If we have a choice, shouldn't we go for what Rasulullah does?

I am not in the mood to talk what is bid'ah and what is not (don't want to be called wahabbi). But i just think it is logical if we do something when there is a clear Hadis saying that Rasulullah indeed said or performed a certain something.

Utamakan lah yang sunnah dulu.

Amik contoh senang, kalau tiba2 orang kata "Jom kita puasa sunat at least 3 kali seminggu. Taknak terhad isnin khamis je. Jom tambah, isnin khamis n sabtu? Kita amalkan sama2. Lagipun takkan orang nak marah kita sebab kita puasa? Puasa kan amalan yang baik."

Or

"Puasa 6 hari je di bulan Syawal? Buat lah 8. Tiap2 tahun kita buat 8 hari.. bagi lebih sikit. Kan bagus.."

Apa perasaan kita kat orang2 yang tokok tambah ni? Kita jangan fikir apa kita tambah tu walaupun nampak baik adalah baik. Kalau baik, Rasulullah mesti dah buat awal awal lagi.

Ingatlah, apa yang Rasulullah ajarkan kita, itu lah yang sebaik baiknya.

Jadi, renung2kan lah dan selamat beramal.

P/S: Don't call me wahabbi. I just like people showing me some hadis sahih first before teaching me something just because it's what other people use to do in certain areas. There are still soo many hadis sahih that we haven't followed, then why should we go for something that is not sunnah?

Our first real test

Real test has begun for hubby and I.

Flight is delayed to a later date. We will get a call as soon as they get us into a flight. Or once visa problem is addressed. Main problem, i still dont know.

Got stranded at Kompleks TH Kelana Jaya last night and we ended up being placed at Grand Blue Wave Hotel. About 50 of us missed last night's flight.

Apparently a lot of other people have been waiting for their turns too. Some even have waited for 8 days.

But i can see that TH is trying their best to settle this problem. Hoping for the best and really hope we can fly out soon..

InsyaAllah...

Please pray for us..

Sod Ba Ra

When people know that I am going for Hajj this year, the first thing they will remind me is to always be patient. 

"Banyakkan bersabar nanti." 

Sabr. 

It is the key to everything. They say there are going to be a lot of tests while performing Hajj and different people have different kind of tests from Allah. 

To me, my very own test has started here in Malaysia. Well, it might not be that big to some, but honestly it is kind of hard to find enough time to do my Hajj preparations. Lately I have so many errands to run, while not forgetting my everyday responsibilities to family that I find myself stressing out to not have the time to properly manage my Hajj preparations. 

Just soo many things to do in a very limited time. (>.<)

To be fair, I only got to know of this great great news quite recently. Once I got the news, I quickly got hold of my offer letter, filled it up, submitted it within 2 days, went for medical check up and finished it up within a day, submitted the medical result together with my passport the very next working day for my visa preparation, and got my departure date exactly the day after I submitted all those documents. 

Yes, Malaysia is indeed very very efficient. Alhamdulillah. I am soo grateful that once my appeal was successful (to follow Rasyid to perform Hajj as it is his turn to perform Hajj and I appealed to follow my Mahram) my path has been quite easy with the help of family and friends. 

Now, the only thing I have to do apart from packing the stuff, is to prepare my knowledge, mental, physical and to have lots and lots of patience.

Seriously, I am really excited to perform my fifth pillar of Islam but I think "dunia" has sometimes made my mind congested and blurry at the same. I hope I can have a really good ibadah time when I am there and my mind can fully be at ease.

I hope everyone who happens to read this post can pray for our health, safety and that finally we can get Haji Mabrur. InsyaAllah.

Muahss

Syukur Alhamdulillah

When you receive some good news, you might jump in joy.

But as for me, when I received this really2 great piece of news which I have been waiting for since early Ramadan, I was overwhelmed.

The more I think about it and read on it, the more thankful I am. To be exact, I feel like crying for this opportunity by Allah.

Alhamdulillah Ya Allah. :')

May Allah ease everything for my husband and I.



InsyaAllah I will write more on this soon!

Syawal is near

Alangkah ruginya kalau kita treat Ramadan sama macam kita treat bulan2 yang lain.

That's what I sincerely think.

It is such a pity if the number of rakaah we perform in Ramadan is just the same as any other months. It is so disappointing if we can't even be bothered to perform taraweh. It is such a shame if we do not take this opportunity to read more Quran. It is just so so sad if we do not even make an effort to get lailatul qadr. And worse, how ignorant we are if we choose to do all the non beneficial things rather than to do ibadah in this incomparable month.

I can't believe how fast Ramadan this year has been. Personally, I don't think I have achieved so much this year. :(

The only good thing is that this year is quite different because I have a husband with me throughout the month. I wish and pray that next year, my husband and I will achieve more benefit from this holy month, InsyaAllah. :)

Anyway, as Ramadan is approaching the end, I wish that everyone goes all out and still tries to grab all the opportunities that we can get before it is too late.

Finally, an early wish from me to all: Selamat menyambut hari raya Aidilfitri di samping orang orang tersayang. Jangan lupa puasa sunat Syawal pula nanti ye! ;)

Maaf zahir dan batin!
