Yahudi Terbaik di Uhud: Mukhairiq



Seorang Yahudi dari Qabilah Thalabah yang mati di dalam peperangan Uhud pernah menyeru kaumnya,

"Wahai kalian kaum Yahudi, demi Allah, sesungguhnya kamu sudahpun mengetahui bahawa menolong Muhammad itu adalah di antara kewajipan ke atas kamu. 
Beliau terus mencapai pedang dan peralatan perangnya. Kata beliau lagi,

"Kalaulah aku terbunuh, maka hartaku adalah untuk Muhammad, biarlah apa yang hendak dia lakukan."  

Maka, berkenaan dengan lelaki ini, Rasulullah saw bersabda,

'Mukhairiq adalah sebaik-baik Yahudi."

Maka hinalah aku yang tidak begitu cinta pada baginda.
Sedangkan seorang Yahudi pun sanggup mati untuk baginda.

Penghuni Neraka di Uhud: Qazman



Tentera Islam telah mendapati bahawa di antara yang tercedera di Uhud adalah Qazman.

Qazma telahpun bertempur dengan sepenuh jiwanya. Beliau merupakan seorang wira. Kepahlawanannya telah membenarkan beliau membunuh tujuh hingga lapan orang Musyrikin semasa peperangan berlaku. Namun, setelah peperangan berakhir, beliau tidak langsung berupaya untuk bergerak.

Lalu, tentera Muslim pun mengusungnya ke kampung Banu Zafar. Kaum Muslimin berusaha sedaya upaya untuk menghiburkan beliau dengan menyampaikan berita-berita yang menyenangkan.

Namun beliau menegaskan dengan katanya,

"Demi Allah, sesungguhnya aku ini berperang demi untuk mempertahankan keturunan bangsaku. Kalau tidak kerana itu, nescaya aku tidak akan menyertai peperangan ini."

Setelah mendapati keadaan dirinya terlalu penat dan terlalu sakit, Qazman membunuh dirinya sendiri kerana tidak tertahan sakit pada jasadnya.

Rasulullah saw bersabda,

"Beliau ini dari kalangan penghuni Neraka."

Sungguh
Maka terlihatlah hakikat kebenaran yang dibawa oleh niat. 
Maka ketahuilah hakikat kebenaran bahawa Allah itu Maha Mengetahui. 
Tidak terselindung lagi apa di dalam hatiku ini. 
Kerana sesungguhnya Dia itu Maha Mengetahui. 
Maka bakallah aku ini rugi sekiranya dalam jiwa ini hadirnya niat lain selain Dia.

Syuhada' di Uhud: Amru bin al-Thabit



Di kalangan mereka yang luka, tentera Islam telah menemui Amru bin al-Thabit yag masih boleh bernafas lagi.

Beliau ini suatu ketika dahulu diajak memeluk Islam tetapi beliau menolak ajaran Islam yang sampai kepadanya.

Tentera Islam berkata kepadanya sebaik sahaja mereka menemui beliau di medan Uhud, "Si degil. Apa ini yang bawa dia ke mari? Dahulu kita pernah dakwahkannya, tetapi beliau menolak."

Mereka kemudiannya bertanya, "Apa yang mendorong kau ke mari? Apakah untuk menuntut bela untuk kaum kau atau menyukai Islam?"

Maka, jawab Amru bin al-Thabit,

"Malah untuk menyukai Islam. Aku beriman dengan Allah da RasulNya. Kemudian, aku berperang di pihak Rasulullah hinggalah aku menerima apa yang kamu semua saksikan ini."

Setelah selesai berbicara, Amru bin al-Thabit menghembuskan nafasnya yang terakhir.

Tentera Muslim menceritakan hal ini kepada Rasulullah saw. Rasulullah saw menjawab,

"Beliau adalah penghuni syurga."

Abu Hurairah mengisahkan bahawa Amru bin al-Thabit ini tidak pernah menunaikan solat walau satu rakaat. Ini adalah kerana takdir Allah yang mengurniakan hidayah kepada beliau pada saat di medan perang lantas dikurniakan terus baginya syahid.

Tuhan itu tidak pernah berkira dengan manusia.
Hanya manusia yang terus-terusan berkira dengan Tuhan.
Bahkan aku juga begitu. 
Karat di jiwa sukar ditanggal
Hingga kini. 
Moga Dia kuatkan aku agar jalan pengakhiranku juga indah, 
seindah Amru.

Syuhada' Di Uhud: Saad bin Al-Rabie



Rasulullah saw telah mengutuskan Zaid bin Thabit bagi mendapatkan Saad bin al-Rabie selepas tamatnya peperangan Uhud.

Rasulullah saw menyuruh Zaid bin Thabit menyampaikan salam Baginda kepada Saad bin al-Rabie serta tanyakan keadaan Saad bin al-Rabie.

Zaid bin Thabit ke medan Uhud. Beliau mencari Saad bin al-Rabie di antara mayat-mayat yang bergelimpangan.

Kemudian, beliau melihat Saad bin al-Rabie di antara mayat-mayat itu dalam keadaan nyawa-nyawa ikan. Saad bin al-Rabie ketika itu sedang menghadapi saat-saat terakhir di dalam hidupnya.

Zaid bin Thabit yang diutuskan untuk mencari beliau telah mendapati bahawa di tubuh Saad bin al-Rabie terdapat tujuh puluh tikaman, samada tetakan pedang, tikaman-tikaman tombak atau anak panah.

Zaid bin Thabit lantas menyampaikan salam Rasulullah saw kepada Saad bin al-Rabie. Kemudian, seperti yang diperintahkan oleh Baginda, Zaid bin Thabit bertanyakan keadaan Saad bin al-Rabie.

Maka jawab Saad bin al-Rabie,

"Sekarang ku mencium haruman dari syurga dan katakan kepada kaumku, Ansar bahawa tidak mengapa bagi mereka sekiranya ancaman sampai kepada Rasulullah saw sedang kamu masih hidup."

Selepas menyampaikan pesanannya kepada sahabat-sahabatnya di pihak Ansar, Saad bin al-Rabie menghembuskan nafasnya yang terakhir.


Sesungguhnya aku tidak berasa ada layaknya aku menceritakan hikmah dari kisah di atas. 
Kerana aku juga hamba yang penuh silap. 
Aku tahu kamu pasti memahaminya. 
Kisah ini, kisah salah seorang dari para sahabat yang hebat. 
Kisah inikisah salah seorang dari para syuhada' yang unggul.

The Way We Look at It

Assalamualaikum..



Maaf sebab dah lama sangat tak update. Tak tau nak update pasal apa. Seriously.

But yes, now, I've got something in my mind.

Yesterday, I was forced to make a decision on my own. This time, I have no support from anyone but myself. Since I've grown up to an 18 years old young lady, things a little bit messed up when I have to decide everything on my own. It got harder and even harder every time I have to face it. I don't know why decision making never got easier.

I've got two choices. One choice is much related to my parents. The other one is much related to myself, an incentive to be a better me.

It was so hard. Yet, I refused to ask anyone about it. Because I know, no one can help.

Things become harder when I even got a little conflict with someone. I felt so abandoned that I couldn't even think straight anymore. I was mad at this one person for ignoring me the whole day.

As for the result, I ended up ignoring all the WhatsApp text messages that I was supposed to reply and slept. It was early. 9.30 p.m.



But to think back about it now, I think I was making myself miserable back then.

The choices were nothing much. As long as I can cope with it, it wouldn't be that hard. But the thing is, I put my emotion as well while deciding.

"It is not the way it looks, but the way we look at it."

Agree.

I was seeing a lot of distractions, a ton of hidden factors and thousands of loneliness. I thought that I was being alone in this and no one could understand me well. I blamed some people because of their way treating me. And bla bla bla...

I kept on seeing fault of the others rather than thinking of making a decision on my own.

Immature.



But, when I woke up I made a decision. Alhamdulillah. And now, it's just the matter of time to tell the others.

The conclusion is, whenever you have to make a decision, clear your mind first. I know it will never be easy. But, if you ask from Him, He will help you through this, ok? Remember to clear up your mind first. Put your sadness, pains, loneliness feeling aside. If not, you will tend to think a lot more about other things instead of solving your own conflict.

Well, lastly, pray. May Allah ease us. :)

What Apps That I Use (iPhone 4 version)

Assalamualaikum...

So we meet again, eh? Sorry for not updating for these couple of weeks. I got quite busy with my exam and now, I am kind of busy with packing up to move out of Seremban.

Ok.. As you see the header of my post today, I will talk about apps. The one you use on your smart phone or maybe your tablet. I don't really have many apps on my laptop, I only use the basic ones. Windows 8 should come with more apps but I don't think it is much helpful anyway. I've downloaded some of the so called cool apps but I totally get disappointed by  it. Those apps usually take a very long time to load and not user-friendly.

But the ones on my smart phone (iPhone 4) and tablet (Samsung Galaxy 10.0) are the best and the most helpful ones.

When you go to college, you barely have time to jot down everything on a piece of paper. For me, when I moved to college, it is a pleasure that the college let us use our phones. I mean, gadgets are the most helpful things if you know the correct way to use it.

So, here are some of my favorite apps that I use in college. I hope it is going to be super helpful for many of you guys out there. :)


  • Doc Scan

Well, I started to use this app when I got stuck in my Pre-Calculus class. I can't jot down everything while listening to the lecture at the same time. I am a slow learner, so I write everything slowly. This doesn't help me to understand the lectures. So, I decided to capture a picture of everything that are written on the whiteboard and print them out.

This app is totally useful. It will convert any of the pictures that you choose to a PDF format. From there, you can print out the picture into a PDF format.

Not just that, it can also open your attachments in any other apps.

Let's say that you have a PDF book to download from the Safari. Once you open the PDF book, you can see a bar at the top of the screen. There, you can choose to open your PDF book in Doc Scan. You also can save the PDF book there and re-open it whenever you want to read it.

You can also highlight and do some editing on the book through this app.

:)


  • Adobe Reader

I downloaded this app a week ago. I have a PDF book (Raheeq Makhtum) to read. I used Doc Scan before this but I found it a little bit hard for me. I can't highlight properly and Doc Scan also doesn't come with a bookmark function. So, whenever I want to read Raheeq Makhtum, I need to scroll down all the pages before I found the right page where I had left before. 

This app is super cool for me. You can choose how to view the book's pages whether in continuous pages or just a single page. You can add your own comment, highlight properly, crossing, lines, texts and even your own signature on the page. Not just that, you can also send the document to your friends through emails and print it. 

Yeah.. Remember this one time, where we dropped our bookmark and forget the last page we read in a book? It happened to me all the time. So, the creator of this app had thought about it and provide a button where you can enter the word or text and search for it. Super cool! 
  • ZEDGE

ZEDGE has been my favorite wallpaper app forever! It comes with the most outstanding wallpapers in a few categories. It depends on what phone you are using actually. If you are using a Samsung S4, it will provide you with the suitable wallpapers. Some of them might have Android or Samsung logo on it. If you are using a iPhone4, it will provide you with wallpapers that have iPhone4 mark on it. 

It also provides ringtones but it quite complicated for me so I decided not to use the ZEDGE's ringtones. But, my father (Samsung S4 user) has been using the ring tones. It is cool. It has also come with the best hits. If you are a Running Man fan, you might a little bit amazed by this app because it has Kwang Soo's soundtrack. There are few others Running Man soundtracks too. :) 


Okay.. So these are some of the apps that I use on my iPhone. There are some others too but they are all basic apps that everyone uses on their Smartphone so I don't think that there is no need for me to share more about it. 

:)

I hope this post is going to be useful for all of you, whoever you are. :) 

Maximize the usage of your Smartphone ok? I found that most of the students don't really use their Smartphone except for games and social networks. Come on guys, there are much more interesting and beneficial things you can do with your smartphone other than games and socializing. 

:) 

May Allah bless.

Causes and Effects of Discrimination towards Women

Discrimination towards women are most likely related to sexism. Why? Sexism itself brings the meaning of the unfair treatment based on gender. Sexism always related to discrimination towards women because typically, women are the ones who are being treated unequally. Recently, starting in the 1900, several laws have been established to remedy gender discrimination by several states and federals. For example, in the United State, there is few organizations such as the Civil Rights Act and Equal Pay Act that promotes equality between genders. Yet, despite all these policies, discrimination towards women is still there and seems to be endless. Today, discrimination towards women is still a big issue across the globe. This is because of the history and perception of the society which result in underrepresented and exploitation.

The first major cause to be discussed is the history that we have back in those years when women’s roles and value were low graded by men. Previously in a thousand years ago, women’s roles are terminated to a housewife’s duty only. Women are responsible to give birth to the children and ran the household only. A woman’s place was only her house by that time. To be in politics or becoming a leader in any field was ineligible for them. No women were allowed to voice out their opinion as they were assumed as ‘unknowledgeable’ and only men were allowed to be heard. A woman’s value also was low graded by men in the history. Usually, men only valued women for two things back in those times. One of them is sex pleasure which makes a woman seem to be as a sex slave and the other one is being a baby machine that only give birth to the children but doesn’t own the children. That is how poor the value of a woman in the history. It might be differ based on the years and regions but basically, every civilization today undergoes the same period where women were low graded by the men. It is clear that women’s roles and value in the history a thousand years ago play a role in why women are discriminated today.

The other cause is the perception that most of us has today which include men’s personal views and favoritism towards them. As we all know, some men always fear of compromising their masculinity. And there are also some men who interpreted masculinity as to have power over women. Most men can’t really accept a woman who tends to be more powerful than they are. Men always have the idea that women somewhat need protection and should not be stronger than they are as it is their job to take care of their women. In can be a good thing but also a terribly bad thing when men can’t differentiate between being protective or oppressed. Not just that, some people, including women themselves also agree that men are more assertive and professional than women. Some employers, teachers and even parents choose over a male than a female as they think a man have more chances and qualities to bring success. Most of us just agree that women have the attitude of being highly sensitive and emotional that they cannot be rational when it comes to working. In short, personal views of men and favoritism towards them are some of the society’s perception that preside over women discrimination.

Meanwhile, as to the effects, underrepresented is one of them in which women are again provided by insufficient representation both in the media and in business. Believe it or not, quantity of women representatives in the media are less than men. Most of the artists, directors and even the crews are actually men. Lately, starting from 2010, observation by the Center for the Study of Women in Television & Film’s stated that the percentage of female TV’s characters have fallen and less women are taking the leading character compared to men. Another statistic made by the same center said that only 18% of behind-the-scenes film workforce are women. This situation applies to business course as well. It is proved to be true when Stanford Graduate School of Business made a clear statement that only 4.5% of the Fortune 500 industrial directorship are held by women. Realizing the truth, law professor Deborah L.  Rhode said that it will take up to 70 years for women to achieve parity on United States corporate boards. She added that even if a woman ever made herself to the board, she will be facing another challenge where their voice will not be heard. They will be considered as outsiders. This is what had happened in the history, where women are assumed to be ‘unknowledgableand did not even got the chance to prove their ability. So, it is obvious that one of the effects of women discrimination is that women are underrepresented in media and business field.

Women are also affected by discrimination where most of them are exploited in the media, again and also family planning. In the media, we can see how a woman is sold by the producer and bought by the viewers. There are a lot of advertisements showing that women presenting products using their body figure. In those advertisements, some women do make some attractive gestures where they tend to move sensitive parts or other than that, showing them off. Women believe that this is how they gain money to make a life but they do not realize the fact that the industry is taking advantage of them. While in some other places, some other women are being exploited by the policy of their country in family planning. As for instance, in China, women are not allowed to have more than a baby or else the family have to pay more taxes. In contrary to some other countries where women can’t or does not wish to have a baby but still, they are forced to give birth or else the husbands will leave them. Obviously, these women have no choice but to follow everything. Again, women nowadays are actually being exploited by many parties in the media and family planning as well.  


All in all, women nowadays are enduring the effects of sexist situations where they are exploited and underrepresented because of the perception and history of women. Unconsciously, women are being used in the media and countries’ policies. Women are also represented inadequately in many fields. This is basically caused by the perception that men are better than women. Simultaneously, women are also discriminated back in a thousand years ago and this eventually becomes a tradition up until now. Those situations that women are having today will never a change until our perception is moved. Yes, it is admitted that women have some weakness that men doesn’t but that doesn’t mean that women deserved to be discriminated. Women are special creatures created by God. They are worth of respects and honors.

Dia yang Mengajar



Kata seorang kawan,

"Kalau kau tak boleh buat apa, lebih baik kau diam ja. Tak yah bebankan fikiran kau dengan stres memikirkan perkara tu. Kalau kau fikirkan cara terbaik nak atasi benda tu, then COOL."

Sentap!

Oh no..
Dia bukan golongan akhawat. Bakal. :)

Terasa jugak.
Tudung labuh tapi hati tak jaga.
Banyak tulis tapi tak buat.

Sungguh.
Kita tak tahu dari siapa kita belajar.

Yang yakin, Dia yang mengajar kerana Dialah yang menghantar pengajar-pengajar ini.

When You Thought You are Weak...

*mood berpuitis*




Beberapa hari lepas, aku diserang rasa lemah satu badan. Selsema, pening kepala dan rasa sakit di hidung bergabung. Badan terasa sedikit panas. Sedangkan, keesokannya, aku ada ujian penting. Dengan motivasi yang kurang, aku tak rasa keadaan ketika itu membantu. 

Puas menangis dan memujuk diri berkali-kali supaya kuatkan diri kerana di sini, aku tak punya Mama atau Baba untuk memberi perhatian padaku. Aku tak boleh biarkan tubuhku larut dalam keletihan sakit yang aku alami. Aku tahu betapa perlunya aku untuk belajar. Aku sudah gagal ujian yang lepas, takkan aku mahu sia-siakan peluang kali ini. 

Terasa kepala semakin terbeban bila aku gagal membuat keputusan. Sebelah otakku memberitahu yang aku takkan mampu belajar untuk ujian esok dan aku perlu dapatkan cuti sakit walau apa pun yang berlaku. Sebelah lagi memberitahu supaya aku belajar dan jangan cuba sesekali mendapatkan cuti sakit. Kerana sekiranya aku ingin mengambil cuti sakit, aku perlu hubungi Baba di tempat kerja dan minta Baba bawakan aku ke klinik kerana aku takkan mampu berjalan sendiri ke klinik dengan keadaan tubuh yang lemah!



Berdentum dalam kepala apabila aku cuba membuat keputusan. Aku hubungi Mama, tidak berbalas. Aku hubungi Naqibahku, turut tak berbalas. Dan tanpa ada rasional lagi di kepala, aku rasakan dunia seolah-olah tidak lagi peduli dengan aku. Tiada kawan serumah untuk memberi sokongan, tiada ahli keluarga untuk menyakinkan dan tiada 'sahabat' juga untuk meminta pertolongan. 

Mungkin ada, cuma aku sendiri yang tak mahu. Sekali lagi, aku terasa dunia amat menzalimi aku sedangkan aku hanyalah dimanipulasikan oleh lemahnya tubuh. Saat aku berputus asa, memikirkan dunia tidak lagi mempeduli, entah dari mana Dia hantarkan aku pemujuk diri. Aku dengan sendirinya bergerak memberitahu diriku. 

"Dude, this ain't what you want. You ain't here to be weak."

"Maybe I just need some rest."



Dengan hati yang ditenangkan dengan pujukan sendiri, aku melepaskan lelah di tubuh ke atas katil. Aku pejamkan mata. Dan, dengan kelemahan pada tubuh, mataku dengan mudahnya terlelap. 

Aku sedar pada jam hampir pukul 6. Mataku lantas terbuka, otakku ligat berfikir, hati lekas berkata, "Mandi dulu, solat, study." Maka, begitulah aku bergerak. 

Aku mandi kemudian solat dan barulah aku sediakan diri aku untuk belajar. Aku menghubungi Huwaida, memberitahu dia yang aku mahu batalkan makan malam kami malam ini. Tak rasa badanku ini mampu turun ke bawah. Lagi pula, masih ada sebungkus lagi bubur Campbell yang Mama bekalkan untuk sarapanku. Aku bercadang untuk masak bubur itu sahaja habuan makan malam. 



Tetapi, Huwaida terlupa membaca mesejku. Mujurlah dia naik ke rumahku sebaik sahaja jam menunjukkan pukul 6.30 petang. Dari situ barulah dia tahu yang aku ada hantar pesanan ke telefon bimbitnya. Dia ketawa dan sebaik sahaja dia menyelesaikan urusannya di rumahku, dia turun untuk membeli makanan. 

Memikirkan keadaan mungkin jadi lebih teruk, aku hubungi kawan-kawan terdekat untuk minta pertolongan mereka supaya belikan aku panadol. Aku hanya mahu bertahan hinggalah selepas ujian keesokan harinya. Aku berjaya mendapat pertolongan Syifa' yang baru sahaja selesai makan malam bersama ibu saudaranya. Dia dengan baik hatinya memberi pertolongan. Dipesannya bermacam-macam padaku semasa dia hantarkan aku tablet-tablet panadol tersebut. 

Aku bukanlah jenis yang degil makan ubat. Aku sebenarnya tak suka tubuhku rasa sakit, ia menganggu tugas harianku. Dan tambahan pula, keesokan harinya, aku ada ujian. Lagilah aku tak gemar diriku untuk sakit di saat-saat genting sebegitu. 



Aku sedar tubuhku perlukan tenaga. Perutku juga terasa lapar. Lantas aku hubungi Huwaida, memesan agar dia bungkuskan koey teow goreng untuk aku. Mujur, di zaman ini, masih ada sahabat yang ingin menghulurkan bantuan dan tidak kisah disusahkan. 

Entah kenapa, sejak menjejak kaki ke kolej aku jadi berprasangka pada kebanyakan manusia. Aku tak rasa mereka dengan mudahnya membantu aku. Dan sungguh, aku merasanya sendiri. Mereka tidak pernah rasa susah menyusahkan orang lain tapi tentunya, golongan ini tak pernah rasa senang menyelesaikan kesusahan orang lain. 

Dan, malam itu, aku gigihkan tubuh untuk belajar. Mama yang tadinya tidak memberi sebarang respon akhirnya membalas pesananku. Katanya, dia ada urusan di luar bersama Adik, menghalang dia dari membalas pesananku secepat mungkin. Rupa-rupanya, Mama dan Adik juga selsema dan demam sepertimana aku. Mama nasihatkan aku supaya makan ubat dan belajar mana yang mampu sahaja. 



Sejurus selepas itu, Kak Farah membalas pesananku. Katanya, dia terlupa untuk memeriksa telefon bimbitnya. Dia tanyakan keadaanku dan mencadangkan beberapa jalan penyelesaian. Aku turuti pesanan Kak Farah kerana aku yakin dengan kelayakannya sebagai seorang doktor. 

Kemudian, Adik memberitahu Baba tentang aku. Baba tawarkan diri untuk belikan ubat. 

"I'm not here to be weak."

Maka, aku tolak tawaran itu. Cukuplah dengan panadol sahaja. 



Ada sekali, beberapa orang kawan memberitahu yang aku tak sepatutnya mengambil ubat. Aku patut biarkan sahaja selsemaku berlalu. Aku diam. Dalam hati, puas aku membalas. 

"You are not there to see me crying."

"You are not there when my head was about to explode due to my sickness."

"Easy for you to say when you got nothing to be worried about, smartbrain."

Tetapi, sejujurnya, aku sedar, bukan salah mereka kerana tak tahu betapa sakitnya aku. Tapi, mungkin, salah aku sendiri kerana tidak membiarkan mereka untuk melihat betapa sakitnya aku. Atau mungkin, memang mereka takkan ambil tahu sekalipun aku tunjukkan.



Maka, aku sudah lama fahami hakikat ini. Manusia, kita berbeza. Maka diam sahaja kalau kau tak tahu betapa sakit ku rasa. 

Apapun, aku belajar benda baru. Bila ada kawan kita yang sakit, kita patut tunjukkan yang kita peduli. 

"Just be there for them."



Itulah dia pengajaran dari Allah untukku. 
Dalam sakit yang diberi
Dia tunjukkan padaku manusia-manusia yang bakal setia di sisi. 
Ada manusia yang akan dengan secepatnya memberi bantuan, 
maka mereka ini setia.
Ada manusia yang akan terlewat memberi bantuan,
mereka ini juga setia, 
tetapi kerana mereka adalah manusia, 
maka mereka juga punya urusan manusia untuk diselesaikan. 
Ada pula manusia yang takkan memberi bantuan, 
mereka ini,
hanyalah kawan sosial
digunakan untuk menambah pengalaman semata-mata.

What You Should Wear to The Class

Assalamualaikum..


So, here I am, writing a post for my long-time-untouched-blog.. Alhamdulillah.. Still get the chance of writing..

I don't know why but I guess this blog is becoming more and more informative these days. Did I managed to provide you guys with infos? I mean, useful ones?

Today, I've decided to write something on what you guys should wear to your classes in the university or college.

Because, staying here, in college, I have seen a lot of people with the most suitable outfits and also, at the same time, I met people who basically wear the wrong outfit to the class. So, here is some guidelines and tips that you might want to use in order to ensure yourself to wear the right piece to your class. Oh yeah, this is only for the girls. :)



1) Keep it simple and sweet. 

Don't try to put too much in one time. Just grab something simple yet pretty. For example, you can just wear a casual jeans (which mean, a plain black or blue jeans) with a long sleeve blouse. And for your tudung, you simply can just wear a plain colored shawl, bawal or ariani. But for me, I guess, it is prettier for a student to wear a shawl or bawal. It suits the personality of a student better.



2) Don't wear excessive amount of accessories. 

Since you still hold the title of being a student, I don't think you should put all the necklaces, bracelets and rings at the same time. Again, keep it simple and sweet.
If you want to wear a bracelet, make sure that the bracelet doesn't have a bright or neon color because it will just add another color to your image, which is, not good. It is even better if you can match your bracelet with your outfit's color for that day. Black, blue-black, white, dark red, soft blue are examples of colors that might go on with any other colors of your outfits. So, yeah, make a good choice, ok?
For my opinion, a plain string with some charms or beads is always the best choice to keep it simple and sweet.
For the ring, you can have any patterns that you like but please, avoid a huge one. Again, keep it simple by choosing the right color. I guess, silvers make the best rings because they fit all colors in the world. Golden ring are pretty and sweet but if you have a huge one with a large diamond on it, I don't really suggest you to wear that kind of ring to the class. It is more to an exclusive occasion style. I've got a friend who wears a golden ring everyday to the class. It is a small and plain golden ring with some unobvious patterns. And, I guess, that's the best type of golden ring to wear to the class.



3) Don't wear more than three colors in one time. 

This is like the simplest thing ever! You can wear any colors that you like but make sure it is less than three colors. This is an example of how you should match the colors of your look that day, if you wear a blue baju kurung on that day, wear a black shoes, black hand socks and a lighter blue (than your baju kurung) for your tudung.

4) Wear a lighter or darker color for your tudung. 

Remember, you are going to a class and not a shopping mall to put on a green tudung together with a pink blouse. It is just so wrong.
Avoid neon and bright colors for your tudung, especially if you are wearing tudung bidang or wider shawls because it is going to ruin your looks. It will be too bright for anyone else in the class to handle.  
Me myself prefer a plain and light colors for my tudung bidang 60 and shawls. Usually, if I wear a pink blouse, I will look out for a lighter pink tudung to match my blouse.



4) Get to know the rules. 

Basically, the rules are most likely like these :
If you are wearing a plain shirt, match it with a tudung that have some prints on it.
If you are wearing a crowded shirt, match it with something plain.
Well, I've got a new rule here.
Since I'm a type of person who wears big tudungs, I have a lot of friends who wears the same thing as I am. So, I make some observations and I think, bright and neon colors are not suitable for tudung bidang 60 or wide shawls. As I mentioned before, it will be too bright for the class to handle. For the ones like me, just pick a fine color that is not too bright.

5) A t-shirt or a blouse? A jeans or a slack?

If you ask me the question, my answer would be a blouse and a slack. And well, Baba himself warns me not to wear a t-shirt to attend the classes because you gonna look much more professional if you put on a blouse and a slack to attend the classes. :)



Well, these are all the guidelines I can ever figure out for now.
These are the things that I learned from my parents and also, based on my own observations.

People might think that these kind of matters doesn't really important to be written down. Since that's is their opinion, I can say nothing about it. But being me the way I was trained since forever, my parents always said that what I wear is something that is going to influence the first impressions of the others towards me. So, what I wear all these years are very important because it reflects who you are and what type of person you are. Me myself believes that through my clothes, I can gain respects from the others and at the same time, make the people to feel much more comfortable to mingle around me.



Talk about dakwah, don't you think Prophet Muhammad pbuh also cares about what he wears? Have you ever thought how professional the Prophet looks? With all his white and clean jubahs, he most probably looks very professional, I think. :D

Just, take care of your image and also, the image of Islam itself.

How To Communicate With Your Classmates?

Assalamualaikum...





Pernah tak nampak atau terjumpa dengan orang yang baik tapi kita rasa tak selesa dengan mereka?

Or..

Pernah tak rasa, kita tak buat salah tapi orang tak nampak macam selesa dengan kita?

Bila masuk kolej ni, saya jumpa ramai orang. Dan dulu pun, saya jumpa ramai orang. Saya berfikir dan tiba-tiba idea ni muncul.

Saya rasa, saya patut tulis pasal ni. :)





Macam mana nak berkomunikasi dengan orang ramai?

Saya tak adalah bagus sangat tapi saya tulis ni pun berdasarkan ciri-ciri yang dimiliki oleh kawan-kawan saya yang saya rasa sangat selesa.

Setiap orang, berbeza.
Umur dan tahap pendidikan, membezakan kebanyakan kita sebenarnya.

Jadi, kalau nak berkomunikasi, kena pilih orang dan pilih cara jugak sebab tak semua orang sesuai dengan cara kita.





Macam mana nak berkomunikasi dengan CLASSMATES. Kita kena sedar, semua orang berbeza-beza cara dan gaya. So, kat sini, saya tulis some of the tips yang mungkin boleh membantu sesiapa yang sedang membaca ni dalam berkomunikasi.

So, yeah..
Here it is..


  • Jangan risaukan orang dengan menyuarakan kerisauan kita. I mean, kalau dengan kawan yang rapat tu bolehlah. Tapi, kalau dengan classmates yang masih belum rapat atau memang takkan rapat, tayah lah cerita pasal sesuatu yang buat kita rasa susah hati. Takut, mesej tu tak sampai. And classmates kita akan rasa bosan dengan kita.




  • Senyum sebanyak yang boleh. Sebab, kalau kita tak senyum, susah untuk orang approach kita sebab diorang tak tahu mood kita. Sometimes, I hate it when some people, mood diorang baik je tapi muka garang, macam orang kematian kucing. Ekspresi muka kena ekspreskan perasaan kita. Just senyum and talk nicely. Kalau rasa macam tak nak cakap about a particular thing, cakap je baik-baik, "Can we talk about this, later?" or "I need few minutes, can I?" Senyum, penting tu.




  • Jangan tanya soalan tentang kehidupan peribadi classmates kita kalau tak cukup rapat lagi dengan diorang. Tiba-tiba nak tanya pasal sejarah cinta, pasal ex-boyfriend dia, pasal ex-bestfriend dia, benda tu semua actually, tak appropriate. Saya bukanlah jahat, tapi, saya memang rasa orang-orang yang tiba-tiba tanya pasal benda-benda macam ni sebenarnya BUSY BODY. Jangan tanya soalan-soalan peribadi dekat classmates, ok? It is annoying, sometimes.


  • Jangan tanya banyak sangat soalan. Kalau kita tak rapat sangat dengan orang tu, jangan tanya banyak sangat soalan dekat dia. Tanya sikit-sikit, basic things dulu. Then, dah lama, baru boleh cakap tentang benda-benda lain yang lebih peribadi. Saya, seriously, akan rasa takut sikit dengan orang yang baru je kenal tapi dah start tanya banyak sangat soalan. Keep it easy, OK?


  • Jangan nak bercerita tentang kehidupan peribadi kita dekat classmates unless dia tu macam besties kita or buddyz (takkan terpisah) kita dalam kelas. Bila orang tak bercerita tentang kehidupan peribadi diorang, itu bermakna diorang tak nak tahu kehidupan peribadi kita jugak. OK, get it?


  • Jangan bercerita benda yang melibatkan emosi. Bila kita disuruh bercerita tentang sesuatu randomly, pick a topic yang simple dan tak terlalu emosional. Instead of bercerita tentang sesuatu yang menyakitkan hati kita, yang buat kita rasa macam nak menangis, lebih baik cerita pasal benda yang menggembirakan kita. At least, kita boleh menggembirakan atau menghiburkan hati orang yang mendengar tu.


  • Communicate with the right way with the right person. Ada classmates kita yang tak boleh bergurau kasar. Ada classmates kita yang kita boleh hina dan kutuk tapi tak terasa dekat hati. Ada orang yang kalau nak bercakap dengan dia, kita kena guna intonasi yang lembut. Ada pulak yang kalau kita cakap kasar pun dia tak peduli. Ada yang terima kutukan sebagai gurauan dan ada yang terima kutukan sebagai kritikan. Find the right people, people!





Macam saya, saya ada dua jenis kawan di INTEC ni. Satu, yang saya boleh berkasar habis-habisan. Dua, yang saya kena berlembut seboleh-bolehnya.

Yang gang kasar ni, saya boleh tegur dengan "Hey, what's up, guys...." or "Heyya, ladies..." Gang ni, kalau disarkastik macam mana sekalipun, diorang takkan terasa.

Contoh conversation yang biasa dengan these people :

"Don't come back to the house, weyh. It feels more comfortable without you around."

"Are you insulting me?"

"I don't want to say this, but yeah.. you deserves it."

Things like these, memang selalu la saya bualkan dengan kawan-kawan saya yang jenis tak kisah.

Tapi, dengan yang lembut, yang sopan santun, saya tak cakap macam ni.

Adapt..

It is just something like,

"Anti...petang ni free tak? Teman ana bukak puasa, jom!"

"OK.. "

"Terima kasih...."

With a very sweet, nice voice.

That's me.






Bukan hipokrit ni..
Tapi ni adalah cara terbaik untuk kita adapt dengan keadaan sekeliling. Tak bolehlah nak assume semua orang boleh terima cara kita. Adjust sikit some of our communication styles and things.. Adjust bukan suruh 360 change in total. No..

:)

Saya harap sangat benda ni membantu, in shaa Allah..

Kalau orang selesa dengan kita, kita pun selesa dengan orang, dakwah pun, in shaa Allah, senang nak jalan. :)

Adapt, OK?


May Allah ease you guys.

20 CENTS: Was A Big Issue

Assalamualaikum..



This post is regarding to my class discussion just now. The issue of gas price that rises by 20 cents. I decided to write this in my blog since I couldn’t speak it out in my class. I didn’t say a word about it because I was just too emotional and there was just a lot of others’ opinion that seems to be far away better that mine. The lecturer was nice and she would let me speak if I want to but it was me. I was the one who choose not to talk about the issue.

I want to say this generally. Not because I am a PEMBANGKANG or ANTI-KERAJAAN or something.

Some of the people thought, “It was just 20 cents. If you guys can afford to buy pretty gadgets then, you guys should not say a word about this issue.”

There are people, who taught, “We should be grateful that our government is just so nice to give everything to us, education, subsidies and etc.”



If I mentioned this issue to Baba, he would probably just said, “20 cents only. We can afford it BY NOW.”

Highlighted phrases: “BY NOW”.

I am grateful that government doesn’t rises the price up to RM2 or something. It costs only 20 cents. I am grateful!

But, if you asked me about this years ago, I might said ONLY BAD things about it.

I wasn’t rise up in a rich family. I used to be a poor girl when I was in the primary school. Baba didn’t have any proper job by that time. Mama had to ‘buat nasi lemak’ and some ‘kuih’ to support our family. Adik went to the hospital for two weeks. I need to pay for my registration fees to the school, monthly school fees, tuition fees, textbooks…

I could hardly breathe by that time. It was deplorable.

People looked at us as if we have the money but the truth is, we didn’t even have a comfy life by that time.

 And, the 20 cents rise in every liter of gas petrol is a BIG MATTER.



Whenever there is an announcement about this issue in the TV, I could hear Mama nagged and sighed about it. She drive to ‘hantar’ all those ‘nasik’ and ‘kuih’ few times a day. She needs to pick me and Adik from school. She needs to send me to my tuition classes, as well as Adik. In a day, she might went out about 8-10 times.

Since we were not that ‘rich’ by that time, 20 cents matters.

Mama only get about 20 cents for each ‘kuih’ by that time. When the gas price rose up, the price of the ‘kuih’ should be increased by few cents as well as the price of the ingredients rose up too. But, when the price of those ‘kuih’ increased, the customers will choose not to buy those ‘kuih’.

So, by time, Mama get less and less profit from her business. The price of the ‘kuih’ just stay the same but the fund had increased.

It was hard.



To those people, who taught that we should be grateful enough, I guess, YOU should be grateful enough that you doesn’t have to suffer like me (before) or the others who live in that kind of world. If you know how hard it is to suffer for the rise of ONLY 20 CENTS, you might wouldn’t say the same.

We must, be GRATEFUL.

But just think about the others.

How can they be GRATEFUL?

This is just my opinion, based on my own experience.

I hope you guys can see things in a different point of view by now.

:)

Selfish People with Rational Reasons (English Essay for SPM)

Assalamualaikum.. 

OK.. Saya tahu saya tak adalah pandai sangat dalam buat esei English. The previous one seems to be ridiculous but I will not remove it from my blog, just in case, you guys need a lame essay to study. 

Esei yang dekat bawah ni saya buat untuk assignment saya. Topik yang saya terima adalah 'Reasons Why The People Become More Selfish'. Jadi, selepas menyiapkan esei ni, saya rasa ia mungkin berguna untuk sesiapa yang memerlukannya. To those yang ambil SPM, this essay might can help. 

Harap-harapnya some of you dapatlah benefit sikit dari esei ni. :) 

Oh yeah.. Saya letakkan gambar for each paragraph (just for some deco). Sebab, taknak korang boring masa esei ni. :D

#InshaaAllah



Selfish often heard as a negative word. Most of us believe that happiness starts from being selfless. But no one actually can prove that we can succeed without being one. Mark Zuckerberg himself said that if he has not being selfish, he will not be where he is now. People become more selfish not because they are such a malevolent but, they realize that they have their own life, ambitions and too much things to be worried about.



Everyone have their own life to live on, which mean, they responsible for their own success in career and happiness. Each of us has different jobs and careers to carry on and we are the only one who can drive our career into a success. Then, who else know about what we want to do or what we want to be more than ourselves. Selfless person thought it is fine to be miserable or upset in order to keep everyone else happy. But, logically, why would you be miserable sacrificing for people that does not love you or willing to sacrifice for you while you can actually make things different for yourself? People starts to understand that they have their own life, they are the one who need to work on for their own victories and joyfulness and that is when people becoming slightly selfish.



Most of the people who turn into a selfish person are mostly ambitious and they aim for a higher place in the society and they believe that they have to meet their own targets to make an accomplishment. People see that it is compulsory to be a little bit selfish, give a force to whoever that seems to be a stumbling block in order to get to a higher place. It is because, if we don’t push ourselves together with everyone else, we might never move to a higher place. An ambitious person will always compare their work with their peers and emulate the success of their heroes in order to achieve their goals. These kind of people put faith in their hard works and do almost everything to achieve their goal that sometimes, misunderstood by others as a selfish action. Selfish-ambitious persons planned for a higher place and few new records for themselves but only few of them make use of the others.



Dilemmas, complications, conflicts are too much to be worried of by an individual and these issues have a high possibility to lead the individual to become less focus and unsatisfied. Most people believe that by worrying, it will form harmful emotions which will distract them from making a clear decision. Thus, in order to make a right choice for the future, one must be a little selfish to keep them on the right track. Selfless people often consider others’ opinion that sometimes does not met him or her self-satisfaction just because they did not want to be labeled as a selfish person. By doing this, they actually have drove themselves to be unsatisfied with their own work. People become more selfish, not because they choose to be but they know, to succeed they should not be troubled by too much things or else, they will be distracted and unfulfilled.



The world should change their perception about being selfish because by now, people realized that we are the one who runs for our life, we have lot of dreams and it is such a waste to doubt too much about others. Becoming selfless, means we order ourselves to concern about almost everything which made ourselves becoming more disturbed and unsatisfied. We have lot of dreams that require hard works to be at the top and to meet our goals. Last but not least, people become more selfish because they have their own life with different careers and different form of happiness. But, all of these are not negative things to be done by a person who care about their purposes of life. The world should not accuse people who take all these responsibilities as a selfish in a bad impression while they are the one who are making the world go round. Selfishness is the key to be happy and success at the same time.
