Dugaan memilih iman

Tiada saat indah
Dugaan bagi yang beriman
Merah dari zahir terseksa
Putih suci imannya di hati

Tangisan selubungi titi perjuangan
Ujian untuk memilih iman
Kerana Yang Esa

Biar rembulan dan matahari
Dalam genggaman tangan
Yang pastinya
Tak beralih dari jalan Ilahi

Akanku gapai impian
Itulah janji yang Maha Esa
Meniti saat indah bersama Rasulullah

-ujian yang datang akan menjadi satu pintu rahmat jika ianya dilihat dari sudut yang positif. ujian dariNya, adalah untuk meningkatkan kekuatan hambaNya.walaupun adakalanya hampir rebah tersungkur, namun kerana ingatan padaNya, akan bangkit kembali jiwa itu. airmata yang hadir akan menjahit kembali sejadah iman yang kian terkoyak. insyaAllah-

This is a song taken from the movie 'Muhammad Utusan Terakhir'

Tanpa getaran

Hati yang beku
tiada bergetar walau digegar
asyik berteleku
hilang dalam jiwa yang nanar

hati langsung tak tersentuh
langsung tak bergetar
walau ditusuk dengan runcing sang buluh
tetap tiada rasa yang membakar

alangkan batu juga merekah
bila sentiasa air mengalir kepadanya
namun hatiku tetap tak terbongkah
walau dunia dihempapkan kepadanya


hilang dalam pertapaan
jika mencari seperti dalam gelita
tiada air mata menjadi teman
yang ada hanyalah tiada

ingin menangis tapi ditahan
ingin ketawa tapi disimpan
ingin bermuram tapi ditekan
ingin tersenyum tapi ditampan


helaan sahaja yang tinggal
dengan hati keras tanpa tandingan
mungkin perlu kupandang semula
sebuah mushaf bernama Al-Quran

It serves you..

Assalamualaikum wbt..check this out..=)

KABUL, Afghanistan – On a whirlwind trip shrouded in secrecy and marred by dissent, President George W. Bush on Sunday hailed progress in the wars that define his presidency and got a size-10 reminder of his unpopularity when a man hurled two shoes at him during a news conference in Iraq.

"This is your farewell kiss, you dog!" shouted the protester in Arabic, later identified as Muntadar al-Zeidi, a correspondent for Al-Baghdadia television, an Iraqi-owned station based in Cairo, Egypt. "This is from the widows, the orphans and those who were killed in Iraq."

Bush ducked both shoes as they whizzed past his head and landed with a thud against the wall behind him.

"It was a size 10," Bush joked later.

The U.S. president visited the Iraqi capital just 37 days before he hands the war off to his successor, Barack Obama, who has pledged to end it. The president wanted to highlight a drop in violence and to celebrate a recent U.S.-Iraq security agreement, which calls for U.S. troops to withdraw from Iraq by the end of 2011.

"The war is not over," Bush said, but "it is decisively on it's way to being won."

Bush then flew overnight to Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan for a rally early Monday with more than 1,000 U.S. and foreign troops. "Afghanistan is a dramatically different country than it was eight years ago," he said. "We are making hopeful gains."

He then took a helicopter ride to Kabul to meet with Afghan President Hamid Karzai.

After their meeting, Bush said he told Karzai: "You can count on the United States. Just like you've been able to count on this administration, you'll be able to count on the next administration as well."

In many ways, the unannounced trip was a victory lap without a clear victory.

In Iraq, nearly 150,000 U.S. troops remain in Iraq, protecting the fragile democracy. More than 4,209 members of the U.S. military have died and $576 billion has been spent since the war began five years and nine months ago.

In Afghanistan, there are about 31,000 U.S. troops and commanders have called for up to 20,000 more. The fight is especially difficult in southern Afghanistan, a stronghold of the Taliban where violence has risen sharply this year.

Polls show most Americans believe the U.S. erred in invading Iraq in 2003. Bush ordered the nation into war against Saddam Hussein's Iraq while citing intelligence claiming the Mideast nation harbored weapons of mass destruction. The weapons were never found, the intelligence was discredited, and Bush's credibility with U.S. voters plummeted.

"There is still more work to be done," Bush said after his meeting with Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki.

It was at that point the journalist stood up and threw a shoe from about 20 feet away. Bush ducked, and it narrowly missed his head. The second shoe came quickly, and Bush ducked again while several Iraqis grabbed the man and dragged him to the floor.

In Iraqi culture, throwing shoes at someone is a sign of contempt. Iraqis whacked a statue of Saddam with their shoes after U.S. marines toppled it to the ground following the 2003 invasion.

White House press secretary Dana Perino suffered an eye injury when she was hit in the face with a microphone during the melee. Bush brushed off the incident. "So what if a guy threw his shoe at me?" he said.

After the news conference, the president took a 15-minute helicopter ride through dark skies over Baghdad to Camp Victory. Telling hundreds of troops he was "heading into retirement," Bush blamed Saddam for the 2003 invasion and said, "America is safer and more secure" than it was before the war.

Air Force One, the president's jetliner, landed at Baghdad International Airport in the afternoon local time after a secretive Saturday night departure from Washington. In a sign of security gains in this war zone, Bush received a formal arrival ceremony — a flourish absent in his three earlier trips.

Bush soon began a rapid-fire series of meetings with top Iraqi leaders.

He met first with Iraqi President Jalal Talabani and the country's two vice presidents, Tariq al-Hashemi and Adel Abdul-Mahdi, at the ornate, marble-floored Salam Palace along the shores of the Tigris River.

Later, Bush's motorcade pulled out the heavily fortified Green Zone and crossed over the Tigris so he could meet al-Maliki at the prime minister's palace. The two leaders signed a ceremonial copy of the security agreement.

The Bush administration and even White House critics credit last year's military buildup with the security gains in Iraq. Last month, attacks fell to the lowest monthly level since the war began in 2003.

Still, it's unclear what will happen when the U.S. troops leave. While violence has slowed in Iraq, attacks continue, especially in the north.

It was Bush's last trip to the war zones before Obama takes office Jan. 20. Obama, a Democrat, has promised he will bring all U.S. combat troops back home from Iraq a little over a year into his term, as long as commanders agree a withdrawal would not endanger American personnel or Iraq's security. Obama has said the drawdown in Iraq would allow him to shift troops and bolster the U.S. presence in Afghanistan.

The new U.S.-Iraqi security pact calls for all American troops to be withdrawn by the end of 2011, in two stages. The first stage begins next year, when U.S. troops pull back from Baghdad and other Iraqi cities by the end of June.

Journalists and staff who made the 10 1/2-hour trip to Iraq with the president agreed to tell almost no one about the plans, and the White House released false schedules detailing activities planned for Bush in Washington on Sunday.

Summer holiday

Assalamualaikum wbt..Dah lama tak terisi blog ini. Busy sket because after I finished my exam, my mother and my auntie came from Malaysia for a vacation and also to see me. My mother and my aunt arrived at Coolongata Airport, Goldcoast and then we went to Brisbane. After that, on the 10th, we went to Sydney and stayed at my house. So, sekarang still berada di rumah saya and jalan-jalan tour Sydney. 17th Dec, we will be going to Melbourne.

Tak leh nak describe my feeling the moment I saw my mum at the arrival hall.Rindu sangat-sangat..Alhamdulillah because after 10 month, Allah gave me the chance to see my mum.O ye... One thing yang sangat kelakar is, kalau pergi jalan-jalan, just 2 or 3 places in a day. Takleh jalan banyak-banyak sebab my mum and my aunt tak larat. Dan jugak, kedai-kedai yang dilawati tu, semuanya lain klau jalan-jalan ngan kawan-kawan. Ngan kawan-kawan, mesti masuk kedai baju, kedai kasut dan yang sesuai ngan umur la. It is different when we shop with the elders. Antara kedai-kedai yang dimasuki ialah kedai kitchenware, kedai baju kanak-kanak, kedai karpet. Tapi takpe, amek pengalaman..=)

Setelah bertemu dengan my mum, pesanan daripada Lukman Al-Hakim kepada anaknya dalam Surah Luqman ayt: 13-19 sering terngiang-ngiang di telinga saya. Elok kirenye disharekan pesanan itu dengan kalian semua.

13. Janganlah engkau mempersekutukan Allah, sesungguhnya mempersekutukan Allah adalah sebenar-benar kezaliman yang besar.

14. Dan Kami perintahkan kepasa manusia agar berbuat baik kepada kedua orang tuanya. Ibunya tlh mengandungnya dalam keadaan lemah yang bertambah-tambah, dan menyapihnya dlm usia dua tahun. Bersyukurlah kepadaKu dan kepada kedua orang tuamu. Hanya kepada Aku kembalimu.

15. Dan jika keduanya memaksamu utk mempersekutukn Aku dgn sesuatu yang engkau tdk mempunyai ilmu ttg itu, maka jgnlah engkau menaati keduanya, dan pergaulilah keduanya di dunia dgn baik, dan ikutilah jln org yg kembali kepadaKu. Kemudian hanya kepadaKu tmpt kenbalimu, maka akan Aku beritahukan kepadamu apa yg telah kamu kerjakan

16. Wahai anakku! Sungguhm jika ada (sesuatu perbuatan) seberat biji sawi dan berada dalam batu atau di langit atau di bumi, nescaya Allah akan memberinya (balasan). Sesungguhnya Allah Maha Halus, Maha teliti.

17. Wahai anakku! Laksanakanlah solat dan suruhlah manusia berbuat yang mamruf dan cegahlah dari yg mungkar dan bersabarlah terhadap apa yg menimpamu, sesungguhnya yang demikian itu termasuk perkara yang penting.

18. Dan janganlah kamu memalingkan wajah dari manusia(kerana sombong) dan janganlah berjalan di bumi dgn angkuh. Sungguhm Allah tdk menyukai org2 yg sombong dan membanggakan diri.

19. Dan sederhanakanlah dlm berjln dan lunakkanlah suaramu, Sesungguhnya seburuk-buruk suara ialah suara keldai.

InsyaAllah kita sama-sama mempraktikkan nasihat-nasihat tersebut.

Other thing that I want to share is, my seniors have left Australia for good. Waa..tak tahan btul time diorg nak naik shuttle yang dibook untuk hantar diorg ke airport. Semua nangis..Sedih btul time tu. Good bye to all of you..I am so glad I met them. And thanks for being there for me whenever I need it. =)..

-to Kak Amrien, Kak Syikin, Kak Iffah, Kak Syal, Kak Lisa, Kak Ida and Kak Aimi-
Semoga tabah hati mengharungi dugaan di Ipba and semoga sentiasa dalam redha Ilahi. InsyaAllah kuntum rabitah ini sentiasa mekar dalam hati kita kerana Dia lah yang mempertemukan kita.

Being 21....

Assalamualaikum wbt...Alhamdulillah, I'm 21 years old today. Thanks a lot to my dearest family members for wishing me happy birthday (even it was at 3 am this morning)..maybe they forgot the time difference between Malaysia and Australia..And also to all my friends, they celebrated my birthday last night with special treat..Crispy Creme (my favourite doughnut)..and all the presents and cards, they were all lovely..muaah..luv u all..

Hmm being 21? what does it means to me? Last night, after performing my Isyak prayer, I reflected back on my previous years. What had I done? What did I achieve? There are numbers but what had I done for my religion? 21 years old, should be very matured enough to think about the well-being of my religion. Since 7 years old, I started my primary school and then my secondary school. After that, foundation years and first year of my degree in Ipba. For the past 11 months, being in Oz(what a wonderful experience for me) and also the place where I got to know my religion better. Felt like nothing I had contributed to Islam.

During the time of Prophet SAW and his companions, young people did contribute a lot to Islam. They were so brave, with true faith and their destination were only to get syahid. Usamah bin Zaid, at the age of 18, he was the general of the Muslim army. Many people were not agreed when Rasulullah said Usamah would be the leader. However, Rasulullah trusted him and his abilities to lead the army. For sure, he was such a great young man. And also not to forget Sultan Muhammad Al-Fateh, at the age of 21, he managed to conquer Constantinople.He was the one, in the Prophet's hadith which was "the one who conquered Constantinople is the best leader and his army is the best army". Muslims once, were very good, the were respected by all, the leader of civilization and then because of al-wahan,(love the dunya and scared of death), the Islamic Empire fall down.

Just have a look around us, what happens to Islam. The muslims are carried away with dunya and the kuffar steps on us. We are being called terrorist?? What's that?? That's not Islam. That's the fault of the people who do not understand Islam.

hahaha.but, I don't get it. being 21?? all those stuff?? what it has to do with being 21??...forget it...not my problem...

hello...its the syabab(pemuda-pemudi)'s job to bring Islam back. At least, in the hereafter, when Allah SWT asked, we have something to prove that we also put our efforts to bring the true Islam back.

One year older, it means that one year nearer to death..So, prepare yourself. Make the soul that Allah has blessed, worth it. Lets not waste our age doing unnecessary things.

"O you who believe! Fear Allah and keep your duty to Him. And let every person look to what he has sent forth for tomorrow, and fear Allah. Verily, Allah is Well-Acquainted with what you do"(Al-Hasyr: 18)
