السفر ميزان السفر

As-safaru, Mizanu s-Safri

'A Travel Will Show The Travellers' True Colours'

Do you remember the story of the 2 travellers and the bear?

So nice, so good and so friendlike friends. But one day, in their travel, they came across a bear. Oh no, what to do? This 1st friend jumps and climbs up a tree. Saving his own dear self and forgetting all about his friend. Leaving his friend alone to face the bear. To face the problem.

This intelligent and highly sourceful friend 'played dead'. And eventually, the bear just left him alone. Problem solved.

When everything calms down, when everything is safe and sound, this 1st friend climbed down the tree smiling, praising his friend of the wit and cleverness of solving the bear issue.

Acting as though nothing had happen, as though the friendship is just as before!

Contrary to the first scenario of 'the coward and the witty', a travel will also reveal true friends.

Friends that views not just the visible what was in front of him, but looks and evaluate beyond that further.

Friends that cherish the similarities and tolerates and respects differences. No taboo, nothing sensitivity.

Friends 'fi sarra'ie and darra'ie' (friends in good and bad, in sickness and in health), berat sama dijinjing dan ringan sama dipikul.

That's why the past ulama's travel.
Seeking for the truth and seeking true friends!

Bulan oh Bulan! Anak Bulan oh Anak Bulan!

Perkara Asas dan Furuk Berkaitan Agama Yang Tidak Dibincangkan Di Malaysia Namun DiisuBESARkan Di Luar

1.
Sering diperdengarkan dan diSENARAIkan kepada kita dengan perkara2 yang mudah kita sedar. Yang mudah kita PERCAYA dan yang tidak perlu kepada banyak perbahasan dan pembuktian. Contohnya 'Bank Islam', 'Tabung Haji', 'Mahkamah Syariah' dan pelbagai lagi.

Kadang2, apabila DISENARAIKAN berkali2 kepada kita, kita ambil perkara2 ini 'for granted', kita ambil mudah dan ada sebahagian pula yang labelkan penyenaraian ini sebagai perkara lapuk! "Tak payah sebutlah, kami pun dah tahu!"

Aduh!

2.
PERBINCANGAN YANG MEMBAWA PERPECAHAN

Soal penentuan Awal Ramadan, Awal Syawal, Aidil Adha, Awal Muharram dan sebagainya!
Ini adalah perkara asas di dalam Islam!
Penentu kepada ibadah!
Penentu kepada Kalendar!

Di Malaysia, kita tidak bincangkan perkara ini secara individu! Tidak semua orang membuka kitab sendiri, tidak siapa memperkecilkan individu atau pihak yang lain, tiada siapa yang agung2 satu GURU berbanding GURU yang lain, SEKOLAH berbanding SEKOLAH yang lain!
-Rujuk semula Al-Hujraat ayat 11-

Di Malaysia, kita yakin kepada PEMERINTAH!

Di Arab Saudi (penentu Hari Arafah), kita tidak persoal dan tidak ada individu yang wukuf mengikut perkiraannya tersendiri!

Di Arab Saudi, kita yakin kepada PEMERINTAH!

Di Australia, 'SEMANGAT' kita telah merobek2 perpaduan serta mendedahkan pekung di dada.

Semua ada hujah masing2. Semua nak menunjukkan dia benar.
Tiada salah pada pencarian kebenaran.
Tiada salah pada penghujahan dan muzakarah.

NAMUN
Salah timbul apabila memperkecilkan satu pihak lain.
Salah timbul apabila KITA TOLONG FIKIR untuk pihak lain tanpa fikirkan kesannya kepada jumhur. Kepada ramai.

CADANGAN PENYELESAIAN
1. Alihkan garisan Tarikh Antarabangsa 'International Date Line' dari 180'T kepada 40'T. Daripada permulaan tarikh yang terletak di tengah2 Lautan Pasifik ke satu garisan berdekatan Mekkah. Sehingga diiktiraf semula pemerintahan Khilafah Islamiyah, kita serahkan kepada kumpulan ulama' di Arab Saudi untuk tentukan permulaan kalendar Islam.
2. Sementara menunggu garisan ini diiktiraf, kita yakinlah dan ikut pada Authority. Di Australia, yakinlah pada EM, Konsulat dan Pejabat Suruhanjaya Tinggi Malaysia.
3. Sementara menunggu garisan ini diiktiraf, jika tidak yakin pada authority, beramallah mengikut individu dan xperlulah perkecilkan pihak yang lain.

Semua Ada Hujah dan Bukti masing2. Perkiraan Hisab dan Rukyah masing2!

3.
Fasaluu Ahliz Zikri In Kuntum La Taqlamun
'Tanyalah ahli (yang lebih mengetahui) jika kamu tidak mengetahui'

Teringat pula kepada kes di Malaysia satu masa dahulu, ketika Perak berpuasa lain daripada negeri2 lain Persekutuan.

SBP YDP Agong dan Majlis Raja-Raja ambil tindakan menyerahkan pengumuman ini kepada Penyimpan Mohor Besar Raja-Raja.

Yakin Pada Pemerintah!
Kikiskan Perpecahan!
Usahlah Mendedahkan Pekung Yang Tak Enak Dipandang Yang Jelik Dihebohkan!
Usahlah Perpayahkan Yang Mudah!
Berlumba-Lumbalah Mengejar Kebaikan!
Beribadahlah Dengan Yakin Dan Tenang!
Meriahkanlah Perayaan!

4.
Agak2 kalau satu kampung yang berjiran memohon hujan daripada Allah SWT dan kampung jiran memohon panas. Siapalah yang Allah Taala akan makbulkan?

Jawapannya,
1. Solat Istisqa ada, Solat Syams ada x?
2. Serahlah kepada Allah Azza wa Jall! Kita bukan tengok perlawanan bola sepak siapa menang. Hak Mutlak ini Milik Allah!
3. Akan gila kita apabila memikirkan perkara2 ghaib.

Liquid Paper 'Correction Fluid'

I am allergic to liquid paper. I am against it.

This allergy applies to a broader perspective of life.

Making a mistake, drawing an incorrect line or writing an incorrect character can easily be corrected by a rubber eraser if you use pencils or a 'liquid paper' if you use permanent ink.

We were tought to learn by mistakes. Wow! Some mistakes are just so hard to overcome. Even with tons of 'liquid paper', you still cannot sweep these mistakes under the carpet.

That is why I am against 'liquid paper'. When I saw my students use them, I'd get very furious.

I didn't only teach them dirty and untidy exercise books, but I tought them that is how your future will look like!

The best way to correct mistakes on their exercise book is by striking the word with one line. Then write the correct word next to it.

Life lesson!
1. Live by your mistake! Digest it!
2. Remember you mistakes and learn by them!
3. Be careful of what you do! Consider all concequences, possibilities and risks. Plan in advance! Set your goals!
4. No way that you can go back in time! No way that you can sweep your mistakes under the carpet!
5. Everybody makes mistakes! That is why we were created as humans and not angels!
6. Find the best way to correct you mistakes!
7. Love and cherish those that sincerely held your hand through all your predicament.
8. Repent / taubat! In time, the community will understand and Allah promised to accept dua of those who asks fot it.

Evolution-Revolution

So Many Things To Do In So Little Time!

In The 12-hour Evolution Clock, humans only arrive to inherit the earth, in the last 10 final seconds. Then another ELE (extinction level event) is due.

In the descendants of Prophets, we (Ummah Muhammad) arrived here as the last ummah!

The last is the best! The best evolved, the best to inherit the earth!

Yet our age is shorter compared to other ummah, other masters of the earth.

Does that means that the best won't last?
The best has to make way for other better bests to come and take over?

All in all, to me, I think, are all true.
We are the best!
We are here for a short time!
We do have to make way for a better best to come and take over!

What can we do then?

SO MANY THINGS!
MAKE BEST OF WHAT WE CAN, OF WHAT WE HAVE, HERE AND NOW!
PLANT THE BEST SEEDS FOR OTHERS TO BENEFIT FROM, FOR OTHERS TO FOLLOW!

Hebat Ayam Pada Kakinya!
Hebat Harimau Pada Belangnya!
Hebat Manusia Pada Legasinya!

Another Q! How to achieve this legacy!

1. Dreams! Everything starts with a dream!
Picture yourself in 1 year time, in 5, in 20, in 50 and eventually your own death!

2. Once you have that, WHO will be there with you! Don't just selfishly think of your own self and step on others! Much legacy that would do! Do you want to be remembered as a person who goes through by stepping on others? Or someone who just drags others DOWN! DOWN? Or as a person who is on the right path (guided) and guiding others! Who is prosper and have enough prosper in them to prosper others!

3. Morphasize your dreams into VISIONS! Your Objectives!

4. Set out process, steps into getting there. 4.1. Identify proper STEPPING STONES! Legal ones!
4.2. Utilize all RESOURCES to the optimum! 4.3. Discriminate the important, urgent, non-important, non-urgent.
4.4. Equip yourself with KNOWLEDGE, SKILLS, know how!
4.5. Be Independant!
4.6. Effort, prayer and tawakkal.

All These!
To Seek Allah's Blessings!
Mardhotillah!

Because, the final dream is death!
Death filled with iman!

Kehadiran yang bukan diminta namun pemergian yang pasti ditangisi!

والله اعلم
