Tazkirah daripada Hanaa

Bismillah.

Salam.

Have I ever mentioned that I'm back at JB now? I guess not. So yeah, I'm back at JB. It's my 8th day here, actually. and I'm leaving for my grandma's house tomorrow, and will be back to Lendu on the next day. Wuu, time flew so faaaaaast.. Mid-semester break, Y U NO end slower? agagaga..

Eh, actually, I want to write in malay in this post.
Mari kita menyambung ber-blog dengan bahasa ibunda.

Seminggu sudah aku duduk di rumah. Alhamdulillah dapat banyak luangkan masa dengan keluarga tercinta, dapat ber-reunion dengan sahabat satu batch yang perempuan (mawar generasi12), dapat memandu kereta di sekitar Johor Bahru setelah sebulan mendapat lesen. Alhamdulillah atas segalanya.

Aku sebenarnya mahu berkongsi akan pengalamanku bersama dengan Hanaa, adikku yang paling kecil, bakal berusia 6 tahun pada Mac tahun depan. Post khas sempena berakhirnya 2011, ialah tazkirah daripada Hanaa.



----------------------------------------------

Ketika itu, aku sedang makan maggi goreng dengan Hanaa. Tiba-tiba Solehah datang sekali. Biasalahkan, tumpang segarfu dua.
Solehah: Naaaakk..
Hanaa: Ambillah (dengan lembut dan baik hatinya).
Aku: Hah, makanlah.. Tapi jangan banyak sangat..! Tapi, makanlah..
Solehah: Terima kasiihh..
Aku: Haa, dah, jangan banyak-banyak sangat. Kalau nak lagi, buat sendiri. hoho.
Hanaa: Aliya ni, kongsi jelah dengan Solehah. Allah kan sayang kalau kita kongsi-kongsi..
*suuuuu......zup* (bunyi anak panah tercucuk kat jantung)

Hanaa, itu pedih. Terima kasih kerana menegurku.
Akhirnya, kongsi dengan Solehah sekali.
Tapi Solehah memang ambil tak banyak pun.
Nasib baik. <--- ok, ini jahat.

-----------------------------------------------

Situasi seterusnya. Hanaa nak makan burger. Aku nak potong daging burger untuk digoreng. Aku potong sebab daging burger tu kan dia macam melekat antara satu sama lain kan, beku pula tu. (sila bayangkan Ramly punya daging burger).

Nak dijadikan kisah, waktu tengah potong daging burger tu, hujung pisau tu tercucuk tapak tangan aku. Nasib baik lah hujung pisau tu tak tajam sangat. Tapi berdarah la juga setitik. Hanaa pun mula la bertazkirah;

"Itula, lain kali, sebelum potong, baca bismillah."

Oh a'ah kan. Aku lupa baca bismillah. Astaghfirullah. Lepas tu, alhamdulillah tiada lagi kecederaan lanjut. Dan Hanaa pun dapat menikmati burger dengan riangnya.

------------------------------------------------

Alhamdulillah, terenye mama dengan abah didik Hanaa sampai boleh bagi tazkirah kat aku. huhu.

Pengajaran daripada tazkirah Hanaa:

  1. Jadilah terbuka untuk berkongsi. Lebih baik, bersikap ithar; melebihkan orang lain daripada diri sendiri.
  2. Sebelum apa-apa perbuatan, baca bismillah. Insya-Allah, senang kerja. Kerja dikira jadi ibadah lagi :)


Semoga Hanaa membesar dengan menjadi anak yang solehah untuk mama dan abah, dan jadi muslimah yang hebat, insya-Allah.

Sekian sahaja perkongsian untuk kali ini.
Wassalam :)

You have the knowledge, now act!

Bismillah.

Salam.

It's 27th of December already. 2012 is just around the corner behind my house. It'll arrive here soon.
2011 has taught me a lot of things. but lately, I've been thinking about the knowledge I'm and have been practising. Or things that I have the knowledge, but I didn't practise... *pedih!

Back at school, I've learned a lot of things and knowledge. I've been shaped at school, and now that I have finished school, it is time to practise what I've learned, before the knowledge is being buried and forgotten.

"And say: My Lord, increase me in knowledge." (Taaha, 20: 114 )

I remember once in TED class with Miss Ju, we were learning about education. How do learners learn. Some of the steps are by reading, repeating and memorizing. Miss Ju asked if anyone of us are from any religious school. I raised my hand, so she asked me some questions,
Miss: Aliya, back at school, you have to remember the quranic verse, the hadith, right?
Me: Yes. (suddenly remembered my hafazan. sigh. How it's getting,, not good)
Miss: How do you remember them?
Me: By reading, repeat them. Memorize. Listen to others.
Miss: So, you do all the steps given there right? (pointing to the whiteboard, where she wrote the notes on the steps to learn)
Me: Yes. sort of. 
and now, the pedih plus menusuk part. 
Miss: Now, do you still remember the things you've memorized?
Me: ........no... just, a little bit of them......
Miss: Why?
Me: because I don't repeat them anymore.... (whispered)
and this is why repetition is important, people!

and our lesson continues as usual..
But my thoughts went to some other places. I thought a lot about things I've gained, but I end up forgetting them. Astaghfirullah.

Sometimes, we have to revise on what we have learned, so that we remember them better. Learn, repeat, revise. and to make it easier for you to remember is, to practise what you've learned. You have the knowledge, now act!

Alhamdulillah I can still remember some verses and surah from the Quran as I understand some of them and some of the verses are often repeatedly appeared on the facebook wall, or tumblr, or twitter, or any articles. So I can still remember.

Then, just now, I suddenly thought of this quote;
العلم بلا عمل كالشجر بلا ثمر
Knowledge without practise is like a tree without fruits.

You have the knowledge, but you don't act. You don't practise. Then what's the use of the knowledge you've gained? You don't get the benefits. No fruits.

Now, this post is actually a reminder to myself. To practise what I know, before I lose them. and it's better to spread the knowledge. Discuss. Etc. Bla-bla-bla.

So, yeah, new year's goal (which is already set months ago): To practise what I learn, and share.

-------------------------------------------------------

What if you act, but you don't have the knowledge?
Now that's another story. The answer is, that is why you have to always seek for knowledge! Make sure you always have someone to refer to, when you're confused on something.
kalau tak, sesat kang. hish. na'uzubillah.
Knowledge without practice is fruitless.
Practice without knowledge, you are lost.
Let us enlighten ourselves with the light of knowledge.

Alright. That's all. Salam.

P/S: 'xcuse me for the long post. This is what happen when you haven't written here for quite some time.

Dia Maha Penyayang

Bismillah.

Salam.

Pagi tadi, terbangun sangat awal. Sebab tidur terlalu awal semalam. hoho. Bangun-bangun je, tiba-tiba tafsir ayat ini terngiang-ngiang di kepala.

 "Katakanlah (wahai Muhammad): Wahai hamba-hambaKu yang telah melampaui batas terhadap diri mereka sendiri (dengan perbuatan-perbuatan maksiat), janganlah kamu berputus asa dari rahmat Allah, kerana sesungguhnya Allah mengampunkan segala dosa; sesungguhnya Dialah jua Yang Maha Pengampun, lagi Maha Penyayang."

[Az-Zumar : 53]

Dia Maha Pengampun.
Dia Maha Penyayang.

Terima kasih Allah.

Literature

Bismillah.

Assalamualaikum w.b.t :)
Alhamdulillah, our classes for 2nd semester has already started yesterday. I just had my class this morning on 10.30 a.m and I'm going to have another class on 4.30 p.m. So, during this long gap, I just want to post a quick entry. (I hope it's short ;p)

This morning, we had a literature class with Madam Nagamany. Honestly, before going to this class, my mind was full of perceptions towards this subject. Literature. It seems to be hard. Not easy. But then, the class started, and thanks to madam, I think I'm going to love this subject.

Literature is wide. It's enriching. It has a lot of interpretation. Just one simple verse can give so many meanings. and I think literature is mysterious. Because only the author knows the exact meaning of what he or she write. It's interesting.

I think I like to ponder people through their literature; stories, poems, any pieces of writings,.... although I may not understand them that well, especially poems. hoho. but I like it.

taken from AwesomePictures


Without me realizing (as in, reaaaaally realizing), actually, I live with literature most of the time. I read novels, I read short stories, I read song lyrics, and most importantly, as a Muslim, I read the Quran. The Quran is an example of a very unique and amazing literature piece that no human can beat it even when human do it together. The original language itself is very beautiful, and when we read the translation, the language is still beautiful. Subhanallah. That's just the language, the messages in the verses are very good and meaningful too. The verses can even make our heart calmer too. It is never a waste of time to read and comprehend the Quran :)

Just thinking about that, made me realize that I actually like literature.
I only dislike it because when I heard the word 'literature', the first thing appeared in my mind was poem. It's not just about poem actually. I forgot that. Maybe because I'm too worried about poem that I forgot that literature has novels and short stories too. heh.
and, actually, poems are not so hard to interpret, since it has lots of way of interpretation. Some people have different interpretation even though they read the same thing. and Madam also said something like this; "every time we read, we learn something new. even if we read the same thing." and I agree with her. I've read a novel twice, and the 2nd time I read the novel, I learned more than the first time.

In a nut shell, literature seems fun to me :)

I think that's all I want to share. This post is not as short as I hope it is. But not too long too. I need to control myself from writing too excessively. hoho. abaikan

Wassalam :)

  11. I can be forgetful and careless, but my memory can be very good too sometimes. SOMEtimes. hoho



Here are the questions from syakirah :)

1) What is your deepest fear?
the fear of losing iman and Islam. nauzubillah..

2) Describe me in three words.
friendly, cheerful, best :)

3) What do you think of PPSMI?
I think the students should be given options to choose in what language they want to study the subjects, especially to those whose English aren't that good.
they need to understand what they learn. learning without comprehension didn't always work.

4) Your favourite childhood cartoon.
Cardcaptor Sakura, Dragon Ball, Power Puff Girls, Totally Spies

dunno. I think she's cool. Her voice is amazing.

My family's and my friends'. Never will I miss any updates unless if I can't access the internet.

9) If you met our current Prime Minister, what would you say to him?
assalamualaikum.

10) If you could go back in time, which year would you go back to? Why?
err, cannot decide. 2006 kot. Because I was very innocent and cute that time. har har.

11) Which one is actually more essential? Geography or pornography? Why?
geography! because with geography, we know and recognize other countries and we know the distance from us to them, and so we can calculate our travelling budget ;p
as for pornography, it damages the memory system in the brain and it can be one of the factors to make your heart darker too. knowledge is light and it wont pass a dark heart.

---------------------------------------------------

That's all.

Alright, I didn't post any questions. I don't feel like tagging anyone. hoho. Because I don't know what to ask. If I want to ask anything, I'll just ask people right away. Sorry yeah kyra for not accomplishing this task. hoho. Plus, if I tagged anyone, the people wouldn't even reached 11 kot. Hoho.

By the way, I've just finished my MUET examination today! Okay, actually, it was yesterday, 19 Nov 2011.
And, we the TESLians are back in our campus. We knew our classes already, got the schedule too. I'm still in class B, but now 2B instead of 1B, and most of my 1B classmates aren't in the same class anymore. sigh. Never mind. Allah knows best.

Semester 2 starts on 21 November 2011. Good luck.

wassalam.

Eidul Adha 1432H

Bismillah.

grabbed from somewhere @ Tumblr

O Allah, I am waiting for the call
Praying for the day when I can be near the Kaabah wall
.
- Waiting for The Call by Irfan Makki
The time will come, insya-Allah.

Eidul adha.
I wonder if all muslims really comprehend the meaning behind it.The sacrifice that Prophet Ibrahim a.s & Ismail a.s have done. Prophet Ibrahim a.s sacrificed his beloved son to prove his love to Allah. Prophet Ismail a.s, as his son, obeyed him, and don't even care about being sacrificed, because he knew that his father have to do it because of Allah.

Sacrificing one's love towards the world, for Allah's love.

If I were in his shoe, I might have failed to do the task. Might.
Say, for example, if I was told to give off my netbook (one of my kesukaaan duniawi). Not to just give it off, but also to ruin it, break it into pieces...
for the sake of Allah. to prove my love to Allah.

Will I really do it?

how about you?
If you were in the situation, will you do it?
Seriously, will you?
Seriously?

eheh. okay, I am always changing the subject. Sorry.
but, let me keep the answer to myself, and you keep the answer to yourself too.
self-reflection, ok?

Anyway, I think it's not too late to wish you a happy eidul adha :)
May someday, we will all get the chance to perform our hajj, insya-Allah.
May Allah lends us strength to do sacrifices just for Him, and may we get the benefits and learn the lessons from the story of prophet Ibrahim's sacrifice.
Enjoy the free meat, others' sacrifice to prove their love to Allah (qurban). eheh.




Happy Eid!
from Khair Family :)


May Allah bless us all.
wassalam.

P/S: The family photo was taken on the morning of eidul adha, 6th November 2011, 10 Zul-hijjah 1432h. For overseas family, Ahmad, Hasanah and Suhail, more pictures are coming soon on fb. Stay tuned. *tiboo

Journey in Pre-TESL ; Part 4

Bismillah.

Salam :)

We are still enjoying our semester break. In this entry, I want to write about:

1st semester's final result
After reading a few texts from my friends this morning, I switched on my netbook. I knew the result was out. But I was kind of reluctant to see my result, but was somehow curious about the result (I expected the website to hang). I did not log on to facebook first. My friends must have been discussing about the results there. I opened my email. Spotted and e-mail with the title "UITM EXAMINATION RESULT...", I looked at the time sent. 4:01 AM. Ceh, if I knew it has been sent on that time, I've checked it after subuh. Anyway, I opened it, and my full results were displayed.

Alhamdulillah :)
3.67
2A 4A- 2B+

I have to improve my Grammar.

Most TESLians excelled in our 1st final. Alhamdulillah.
Anyway, let's continue to put on more efforts to success on the next times, insya-Allah.
Don't be too happy, don't be too sad,
We still have next semester,
Anything can happen.

Random: Teaching, Good person?

Bismillah.

Salam.
Just want to write some random things before I went to bed tonight. *sleepy* *running nose* *suddenly remembered that I haven't take the medicine yet* *will do after this* *this starry******thing is too long*  ok stop.

Alhamdulillah, today, I went to my school and met my teachers and some of my friends. We had a great time, alhamdulillah.

I just want to share some random dialogue I had with my former English teacher. She taught me English since I was in form 3 until form 5. I met her at the bilik guru. This is our shortened version of conversation; [we had a mostly malay conversation]
Me: Ustazah sibuk ke? Ada kelas?
Ustazah: Tak lah, tapi ustazah nak uruskan kertas-kertas ni haa *showing the exam papers*
Me: *excited, flashback-ed zaman buat English essays* wah, banyak. Ustazah nak ana tolong? Hehe. Practice, practice. (since I'm taking TESL. ceh, bajet sket)
Ustazah: Oh, boleh juga! Ha, anti mengajar la sini nanti.
Me: Oh, ha'ah kan. Nanti tahun depan kan ada cuti panjang
Ustazah: Bagus lah tu. Sini pun tak cukup sangat cikgu English.. TESL belajar apa je? Grammar...?
Me: A'ah, ada grammar, reading, listening, speaking, writing, camtu-camtu la.
Ustazah: Oh, dah tere la ni?
Me: Tere? Oh, tak la sangat zah. Huhu. Kat sana kitorang tak speaking sangat pun. Banyak cakap melayu je.
Ustazah: Haa, that's why you have to go overseas. Lagi effective. Nanti buatla master kat overseas.
Me: hoho. tula. Insya-Allah...

The message behind the conversation, plus I added more some;

  1. I miss writing essays. But more to narrative.
  2. Ustazah mentioned about being a part-time teacher there. I suddenly thought that do I really have the qualities to be a teacher? A good teacher?..
  3. Environment helps give influence in your language. You are with Malay speakers, you speak Malay more. You are with English speakers, you use English more.
  4. I thank her so much for helping me to improve my English! She encouraged me a lot.


That was about some educational stuff.

Then, my friends and I went to another friend's house nearby. She's our SRIH schoolmate. We talked a lot, reminiscing our memories back then. and I realized how innocent I was when I was in primary school. I even wrote letters in a very skema proper language, and I followed the informal letter format too! Good girl. Comelnya aku dulu. ok dah, tak boleh perasan banyak sangat.

But now, 今で, الآن, sekarang, what kind of girl have I become?

*silence*

What kind of person have YOU become today? *changing the subject*

alright. that's just for the muhasabah.
That's all, wassalam.

Random: Everything is up to HIM. He knows what's best.
Random #2: This is the first time I used the word 'reminiscing' in my writing.

Antara Sabar dan Mengeluh

Bismillah.

Assalamualaikum w.b.t.

Malam tadi, aku nak tidur. Tapi tak dapat tidur. Kepala asyik berfikir. Macam-macam yang aku fikir. Pasal blog, pasal kawan, pasal 'aku nak tidur! tapi kenapa tak dapat tidur?', pasal pelajaran, pasal result (cuak), pasal sem depan, pasal driving, pasal sekolah (sob sob. rindu), tu je kot.

Tengah-tengah fikir pasal sekolah tu, tiba-tiba aku teringat kisah yang akak naqibahku pernah cerita waktu MDP dulu. Ni waktu aku tingkatan 3 (2008). Naqibah aku ketika itu ialah kak Nusaibah Kamsari, yang ketika itu tingkatan 5. Hari tu hari Jumaat, pagi. Dalam sesi tazkirah, kak Nusaibah bercerita tentang seorang perempuan yang sabar. Ini kisahnya. (aku google dan jumpa di blog syahirul)

Antara Sabar dan Mengeluh


Pada zaman dahulu ada seorang pemuda yang bernama Abul Hassan pergi haji di Baitul Haram. Di waktu tawaf, tiba-tiba dia melihat seorang wanita yang bersinar dan berseri wajahnya. “Demi Allah, belum pernah aku melihat wajah secantik dan secerah wanita itu, tidak lain ia pasti kerana wanita itu tidak pernah risau dan bersedih hati”, katanya.

Wanita itu mendengar ucapan Abul Hassan lalu ia bertanya, “Apakah katamu hai saudaraku? Demi Allah aku tetap terbelenggu oleh perasaan dukacita dan luka hati kerana risau, dan tiada seorang pun yang mengetahui hal ini.

Abu Hassan bertanya, “Bagaimana hal yang merisaukanmu?

Wanita itu menjawab, “Pada suatu hari ketika suamiku sedang menyembelih kambing korban, dan pada aku mempunyai dua orang anak yang sudah boleh bermain dan yang satu masih menyusu, dan ketika aku bangun untuk membuat makanan, tiba-tiba anakku yang agak besar berkata pada adiknya, Hai adikku, sukakah aku tunjukkan padamu bagaimana ayah menyembelih kambing?’” Jawab adiknya, “Baiklah kalau begitu.


Lalu disuruh adiknya baring dan disembelih leher adiknya itu. Kemudian dia merasa ketakutan setelah melihat darah memancut keluar dan lari ke bukit yang mana di sana dia telah dimakan oleh serigala, lalu ayahnya pergi mencari anaknya itu sehingga mati kehausan dan ketika aku letakkan bayiku untuk keluar mencari suamiku, tiba-tiba bayiku merangkak menuju ke periuk yang berisi air panas, ditariknya periuk tersebut dan tumpahlah air panas terkena ke badannya habis melecur kulit badannya. Berita ini terdengar kepada anakku yang telah berkahwin dan tinggal di daerah lain, maka ia jatuh pengsan hingga sampai menuju ajalnya. Dan kini aku tinggal sebatang kara di antara mereka semua.”

Lalu Abul Hassan bertanya, “Bagaimanakah kesabaranmu menghadapi semua musibah yang sangat hebat itu?

Wanita itu menjawab, “Tiada seorang pun yang dapat membezakan antara sabar dengan mengeluh melainkan ia menemukan di antara keduanya ada jalan yang berbeza. Adapun sabar dengan memperbaiki yang lahir, maka hal itu baik dan terpuji akibatnya. Dan adapun mengeluh, maka orangnya tidak mendapat ganti yakni sia-sia belaka.

Demikianlah cerita di atas, satu cerita yang dapat dijadikan teladan di mana kesabaran sangat digalakkan oleh agama dan harus dimiliki oleh setiap orang yang mengaku beriman kepada Allah dalam setiap terkena musibah dan dugaan dari Allah.

Kerana itu Rasulullah s.a.w bersabda dalam firman Allah dalam sebuah hadis Qudsi: “Tidak ada balasan bagi hambaKu yang mukmin, jika Aku ambil kekasihnya dari ahli dunia kemudian ia sabar, melainkan syurga baginya.

Begitu juga mengeluh. Perbuatan ini sangat dikutuk oleh agama dan hukumnya haram. Kerana itu Rasulullah s.a.w bersabda: "Tiga macam daripada tanda kekafiran terhadap Allah, merobek baju, mengeluh dan menghina nasab orang.” Dan sabdanya pula, “Mengeluh itu termasuk kebiasaan Jahiliah, dan orang yang mengeluh, jika ia mati sebelum taubat, maka Allah akan memotong baginya pakaian dari wap api neraka.” (Riwayat Ibnu Majah)

Macam mana kisah tadi? Best kan? walaupun seram dia sembelih adik dia. oyr! >__< kesian betul budak innocent. Tapi kuat betul wanita tadi hadapi dugaan kehilangan seluruh ahli keluarganya.. wuu..

Kesimpulannya, sabar lah. Tak perlu mengeluh. Apa yang kita dapat kalau mengeluh? Rasa lagi penat adalah. Sebaliknya, kalau kita sabar, senyum je, terus positif, insya-Allah, tenang rasa. Hidup pun rasa lebih bahagia. Wajah orang yang bersabar, sangat sangat sangat cantik dan indah, macam wanita tadi. Mehle kita cuba contohi kesabaran wanita tadi. Siapa sabar dia cantik/hensem.

Terima kasih kepada kak Nusaibah, kakak naqibahku, kerana telah menyampaikan kisah tadi kepadaku dan rakan-rakan se-MDPku ketika itu :) Semoga Allah memberkatimu.

Sekian sahaja kisah hari ini.
Terima kasih kerana sudi membaca.
wassalam.

Naqib/Naqibah yang dipilih pula ialah mereka yang berjawatan sebagai Pembimbing Rakan Sebaya (PRS), tingkatan 3-5, ataupun kalau bukan PRS, Ustaz/Ustazah yang akan mejadi naqib/naqibah.

Day 29; Something I could never get tired of doing


 This post is included in the 30 days challenge


Bismillah.

Salam.

Hm. I myself am not sure of what I could never get tired of doing. Because in everything I do, there must be a point where I felt tired of doing it, although it is something I like. If I do it too much or too long, I'll feel bored and want to do some other things. but I do have many things I rarely get tired of doing :)

One of them is;

looking at the blue sky


but if I stare up too long, my neck will get tired too. ceh.
But still, looking at the sky can bring peace in my mind. I feel calm. and like my dad, I like to photograph the sky too. The sky is very beautiful, subhanallah.

oh, this is the 29th challenge! the last, 30th, is tomorrow's. Wow. How time has flew so fast. It's 30 days already. Our final result will be out next week! I have less than four weeks of holiday remaining. Wuh. never mind.

that's all.
wassalam :)

Day 28; What I've learned in this month


 This post is included in the 30 days challenge


Bismillah.

Salam :)

Alhamdulillah, in this month, October 2011, I have learned a lot of things.

credits to Al jazaari@Tumblr


1. Be patient in reading and gaining knowledge.
Don't be too greedy or eager or curious in learning. You'll learn as you read, study and observe. Finish a book one by one, slowly. Gain a knowledge, chapter by chapter, slowly.
You'll finally get there, when the time comes.

2. Don't put too much expectation on something you don't know.
Accept things as they are. Understand why it is like that, instead of something you expected.

3. Be confident. Believe in yourself.
But moderately. Don't be over-confident. Don't be too demotivated. When you believe in yourself, everything will be fine, insya-Allah. Be positive.

4. Be cool. Don't gelabah.
Relax as things come. Don't be too cuak or gelabah. You are rational when you are relaxed and calm.

5. When to use learned and when to use learnt.
Learned is used after the word 'have'. Learnt is used as a simple past tense. (I got confused with these words after reading the title of this post)
Examples: I have learned a lot of things this month. I learnt a lot of things yesterday.
Correct me if I'm wrong :)

6. You are what you choose to be.
You know what is good and what is bad, now choose. The decision is in your hand :)

7. One must have a stand.
Have a stand. I read a pakcik's comment on Facebook regarding one issue. I forgot what is the issue about but, kind of sensitive kot. the pakcik wrote about some people who are always neutral on siding a party. He got a point there. For how long are you going to stay neutral? In the end, we still have to choose.
but then, when you have a stand, be considerate and temperate too. I learnt this from Sang Pencerah movie. I like the quote, "Kita mesti ada prinsip. Tapi jangan fanatik." which means "We must have a principle. But don't be too fanatic." It made me think a lot.
Sometimes, people are too fanatic of a stand, a principle, a concept, etc that they don't even comprehend it. Too proud of it that they forgot what is it actually about. And sometimes, I'm one of 'them'. astaghfirullah. #muhasabah.

Alhamdulillah for all the things I've learned.

That's all I am sharing for now.
Thanks.
Wassalam :)

Day 27; What kind of person attracts me


 This post is included in the 30 days challenge


Salam :)

Kali ni nak tulis dalam bahasa melayu. Sebab, saya tertarik dengan orang yang kemas.
dan saya tak tau kemas dalam Bahasa Inggeris apa.

Smart?
Kalau buat ayat 'A smart person attracts me', macam membawa maksud orang yang pandai, bukan kemas. hoho.

Tidy?
Tidy ni macam lebih kepada kekemasan barang atau tempat pula.
She has a tidy appearance. rasa macam tak betul je ayat tu kan? Ke betul ha?

Siapa yang ada perkataan paling sesuai untuk kemas, selain smart dan tidy, sila bagitau ye. hoho.

Jadi, yup, saya suka seseorang yang kemas. Dari hujung rambut sampai hujung kaki. Ataupun daripada hujung tudung sampai ke hujung stokin.

Lee Young Ae, berlakon sebagai Janggeum dalam Jewel in The Palace
Saya suka menonton cerita Jewel in the Palace sebab pelakonnya sangat kemas. Rambut dia, tengoklah macam gambar kat atas ni. Kemas betul. Macam mana lah dia sikat dan ikat tu. Huh. Pakaian pun sopan je. Sedap mata memandang.


Kwon Sang Woo, berlakon sebagai Cha Song Joo dalam Stairway to Heaven
macam ni pun kemas juga. Piano sebelah dia pun warna putih (tak sal). Baju kemas. Rambut kemas. Tak tutup dahi. Smart lah.


Ni pun smart. Tengok lipatan tudung kat bahagian muka tu. Kemas je. Bukan senang nak lipat tudung kemas-kemas macam tu. Kalau kain yang lembut sangat, nanti dia senget. Atau tak betul lah. Kalau kain yang licin, nanti tudung tertarik lah. Kadang-kadang kena lilin dulu kat bahagian muka tu, baru kemas. Itu pun kalau lilin dengan betul. Kalau salah cara lilin, makin buruk lah jadinya. Okeh, siapa tak faham angkat tangan.

Kat sekolah dulu, saya ada satu habit. Iaitu tengok muka kawan-kawan saya, tengok lipatan tudung kat muka dia. Kalau kemas, memang saya tenung lama-lama sikit. Oh, saya suka juga berbuat demikian terhadap ustazah-ustazah di sekolah. Sebab ustazah punya tudung biasanya sangat kemas. Adorable.

Kesimpulannya, saya suka orang yang kemas.
Islam pun menganjurkan umatnya untuk berpakaian kemas kan?
Sejuk mata memandang. Sejuk hati melihat. Rasa macam ada aircond dalam hati.

Jadi, marilah kita berpenampilan kemas selalu! :D

Sekian, terima kasih.
wassalam.

Day 26; A photo of somewhere I want to go

 This post is included in the 30 days challenge

Bismillah.
Salam :)

On this earth, besides the cities where Islam's honourable mosques are located, there are still other places I really want to go. Lots of them, actually as I really love to travel, only that I don't really have the budget to go there at the moment ;p. So, these three are on the top of my list.

The City Palace of Al-Hambra at Granada, Spain



Istanbul, Turkey


For both places, Granada and Istanbul, I really really really want to go there because of the architecture of the buildings there. They are beautiful, unique and shows how the Islamic empire has once been very great. and another attraction is their history. Hm. I guess I'm attracted to the places where the Islamic empire has once conquered. The Granada has once conquered by the Umayyah and Abbasiyyah empire, and the Istanbul was conquered by the Uthmaniyyah (Ottoman) empire. Yeah, I like to visit historical places a lot. That's why I like going to the museums.


Oxford, England


I remember Mama told me about her trip to Oxford. She said that she really likes the environment there. So peaceful, less car, very country-side like, classic. It's from Mama's story that I began to like this place. The architecture is cool too. Mama said that going there, you'll feel like you are in the 18th century. It's like its city structure from the 18th century is preserved till today. I like it.
and I really want to go to it's university. Yup, University of Oxford. Just a visit there will do.

By the way, all the photos are sourced from wikipedia. eheh.

That's all. Salam.

Day 25; Who am I?

This post is included in the 30 days challenge

Salam.

Who am I?
Are you sure you want to know who I am?

OKlah. If you want to know who I am, click on the 'about me' button above. or read my previous '15 facts about me' post. or not. hoho.
or, or, you can ask my parents, my sisters, my brothers, my teachers, my friends to know more about me. They have spent their time with me, especially my family, so, they know me well enough, insya-Allah.
If you don't want to know things about me, that's better. ceh.

It reads as 'Aliya'. It's my name. Means; high.
This name is from our family's tree of names :)
Of course, I'm a human Allah created with lots of responsibilities towards Him, my parents, my family, my duties, the people in general, study, etcetera etcetera. So, I have responsibilities. You have responsibilities. Responsibilities, no matter how big or how small it is, will be counted during the judgement day. gulp. We are responsible of what we said. We are responsible of what we write. We are responsible of what we choose to see. We are responsible towards ourselves. Let us be responsible. Huhu.

*dooom!*
felt burdened on the shoulder

Please pray for me that I'll be more responsible 'till I can be independent.
May we all have the strength to be more responsible. Amiin.

Remind me if I forgot, correct me if I did anything wrong. Please. Thank you :)

That's all. Salam.

This post is included in the 30 days challenge

Salam.


Aku suka baca balik semua kata-kata semangat kat kertas ni. Walaupun ni kata-kata semangat yang ditulis untuk SPM, tapi apa salahnya semangat ini terus digunakan kan? kecuali part 'SPM 11A+' tu jelah. Sekarang target dah lain. Tapi matlamat tetap sama, nak berjaya, capai cita-cita.

Terima kasih rakan-rakan 5 Iftikhar 2010. Saya/Ana/Kita rasa semangat baca korang2 punya tulisan ni. Semoga kita semua tetap semangat untuk berjaya di jalan yang masing-masing ambil. Semoga kita semua dapat menyumbang untuk Islam. Innallaha ma'ana. Sesungguhnya Allah bersama kita :D

Tiba-tiba rasa macam post ni didedikasikan buat Iftikharian 2010 pulak -__-"
biarlah.

sekian sahaja. wassalam :)

P/S: Mestilah ada banyak lagi perkara yang bermakna buat saya. Islam, iman, keluarga, sahabat-sahabat saya sendiri, guru-guru, ilmu pengetahuan, semuanya amat bermakna dan saya bersyukur kerana dianugerahkan semuanya itu. Alhamdulillah.

Day 22; A letter to someone who has hurt me recently

This post is included in the 30 days challenge

Salam :)

I think no one has hurt me recently.
It is I who have hurt someone, kot. Or sometwo. Or somethree. Or some more people.
Sometimes we hurt people without we realizing ek. huhu.
I hope whoever who I've hurt will forgive me. I'm very very sorry.

So, since no one has hurt me recently, no letter lah.


I suddenly thought of being quiet and pemalu (:P) on the next semester.
Because sometimes I talked to much, more unnecessary things went out from my mouth. I could hurt people too, because as what some of my friends have said, some of my words are 'sinis' and 'pedih', and I do agree with them. Hoho. Sorry friends if I've ever hurt you with my words.
So, I better practising being quiet and pemalu starting now! but not too quiet kot. My aimed version of quiet is talk only when needed too, and not talk exceedingly. hohoh. and, not being too loud.

Abu Hurayra reported that the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said, "Anyone who believes in Allah and the Last Day, should speak good words or be silent." [Agreed upon]

 Ibn 'Umar reported that the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said, "Do not say much without mentioning Allah. A lot of talk without mentioning Allah Almighty makes people's hearts hard. The furthest of people from Allah are the hard-hearted." [at-Tirmidhi]


that's all.
wassalam :)

Day 21; A photo of something that makes me happy

This post is included in the 30 days challenge

Bismillah.

Salam :)

I don't want to put just a picture. Please allow me to put two. Although there's actually more than two things that make me happy. But these are the only two I want to feature. Hohoho.



The Al-Quran and the books

My favourite things. Just seeing these can make me happy. I love to look at a shelf full of books. I love to look at my book or novel collection (although I still haven't finished reading all those). I love sitting or standing in front of a book shelf picking books to read, or berangan 'I will read this one' but up until now I haven't read it yet (rambang mata sangat nak pilih buku nak baca). I love going to book stores and look at all rows of shelves filled with books.
If you give me a book or a magazine which issue I haven't bought yet, I would surely be happy :) . but that also depends on the book content and genre. heh.
and, just seeing the Al-Quran makes me feel calm. When I hold it, I feel calmer. and in it, there are a lot of ayat that can make me feel happy and positive :)

and here's another thing that makes me happy.


A hijab-ed Barbie Doll!
how cool is that?! 0o0

....wait.... I just googled and there's another product like Barbie, named Folla. Now I'm confused. Is Folla a company under Barbie or Mattel or is it just another company of doll? Is the doll I put above is a Barbie or a Folla? hmm.. never mind. The point is, the doll is dressed appropriately. Covers her aurah. This fashion can be followed by the young children who play this doll :))
by the way, the doll above is Hanaa's, my youngest sister.

Updated: Alright, the above doll is a Fulla. It's marketed to children of Islamic and Middle-East countries. My brother Ahmad bought it at Jordan. 

alright. that's all.

Salam :)

Day 20; The meaning behind my blog name

This post is included in the 30 days challenge

Salam :)

For the time being, my blog is named "Aliya K's" as I really don't have any other ideas of what name to give to this bloggy.
Aliya K's, means that this blog belongs to Aliya K *duh, anyone would know that*.
and, Aliya K is my nickname.

as for my URL, i name it aliyakhair. It's my other nickname, Aliya Khair. Khair is the shortened version of Khairuddin, my dad's name which is also my last name.

 The meaning:
Aliya; high, sublime, lofty :)
Khair; good, best.

I hope I'll be as good as my name. Or this blog'll be as good as its name. Insya-Allah.

---------------------------------------------------------

Here's some reminder of the day. hoho. tetibe.

can't remember where did I found this picture.
sorry to the owner for not putting credits.
but I hope you'll get a reward for each time anyone reading this, insya-Allah

That's all.
Wassalam.

Day 18; 5 things that irritate me about opposite/same sex

This post is included in the 30 days challenge

Salam.

Nobody's perfect, I know. We have to accept others just the way they are. But still, as a human too, I still have some things that I can hardly accept about people. People's act, to be exact. Things that reallly irritate me.

credits to sonic-toad @ DeviantArt


1. Gedik over-dose. I dislike both girls/boys who are gedik. Well, I can still accept if you have a little dose of gedik inside you, because every human has their own gedik side. But if you revealed too much of your gedik-ness, or act gedik exceedingly, errr.......

2. Saying harsh words / mencarut. No matter what gender is the doer, I still dislike the act of saying harsh words / mencarut. Somehow, I cannot accept this sentence, "Kau tu perempuan, jaga lah sikit bahasa tu. Aku lelaki, takpela jugak nak mencarut." No! You're a male, a female, still, mencarut is not good, okay.
Daripada Abu Hurairah ra, Nabi saw bersabda yang bermaksud: "Mencarut adalah sejenis sikap kasar. Manakala sikap kasar balasannya ialah neraka."
(Riwayat al-Bukhari dan Muslim)
Some people uses the excuse of, "I'm sorry, I was just too mad, I cannot do anything except mencarut". Well, actually, there are still some things you can do :)

  • Be quiet and patient
  • Istighfar
  • Take wudhu'
  • Sit
  • Get some rest
  • Express your feeling through some scribble, doodle, writing, talking, crying, running, punching your plushies, yelling at a wide space (in the middle of the field or on top of a hill, with no one around), etc2..
  • Istighfar again.

of course you will take some time to practice this, but, just try to lessen the act of saying harsh things. Insya-Allah, you can.

3. Talk bad things about someone, esp about people I know. Open someone's aib. I usually see/hear girls do this *duh, I'm closer to girls*. Well, I don't care if someone say it with the intention to try to change the person's bad deed, to think of a solution to it. But if someone or a group of people say it without any good intention, just to maki-maki or just for their own satisfaction, I can hardly accept it. and the thing I cannot accept the most is someone saying bad things about their own friend behind her/his back, and that friend happens to be my friend too. What a hypocrite. When this happen, usually, the person who did this will lose my trust, little by little, but I will still talk to her/him though. Wait, does that make me a hypocrite too? err.. *gulp* *guilty*

4. Garang people. Although sometimes I'm garang too ;p. Oh, and I also dislike guys with big voices when they are yelling or being garang. It's just too scary. Like the storm. uhuhu..

5. People who knows that someone is easily moved and sensitive, yet still tease that someone. Usually guys, towards girls. I can't stand looking my friend crying often. Come on guys, please be considerate. She got her own problem already and now you hurt her more. You guys better apologize. Maybe you think, "come on, it's just a teasing. I was just joking." But, no. Some girls are more sensitive than you think. So, think before you act!

Har har. This post is a bit emo. Writing things that irritate me really makes me feel irritated to those things. So, usually, when I'm irritated, I'll give an annoyed look or a death glaring stares. or maybe I'll just talk to that person right away that what she/he's doing isn't good. But sometimes, I give zero expression and just keep quiet about it. Hating with the heart. (Selemah-lemah iman? oyr. Astaghfirullah). Better improve it, okay. For those who don't get my last four sentences above, refer this [hadith on amar ma'ruf nahi munkar] and relate. It's kind of related somehow. hoho.

Alright, that's all for now.

Astaghfirullahal'adzim
and
Salam :)
