Some point of our brothers

Recently, my friend called me. He told me about the issue of Palestine. Telling me how care was he, about our brothers there, and asking me to pray for them. No electricity, no food stock, no water.. and everything. I just listened to the one of Arab's tazkirah about our brothers, in his introduction. He said, after the Palestinian got into Egypt, they firstly bought - food, mattress(because they don't have it to sleep -for those who has got married) and some besi2 to make a wall for their house (because all of it has been destroyed by Israel).

And one story to be shared, there was a IM brother, who was so concerned for their Palestinian brothers, and he refused to sleep on bed. Then his wife asked him why, he told - I just want to 'rase' or feel how my brothers in Palestine are striving and experiencing now. So he just slept on the floor. (Feel it in the winter, so cold if you sleep without blanket, ni lagi la tdo ats lantai)
Well, we all already know.

But, we have some differences between we Malays and them Arabs. And so many differences between we in Egypt, and you all in Malaysia.

First group - Malays and Arabs
- Arabs - They feel the brothers are Arabian like us if we heard something happen on Melayu, we must be some kind of angry or else. More than it, Arabians were so empathy and caring and .. ihtimam about their brothers .. like their bond of ukhuwwah is so tight.
- Malays - Terbawak2 dengan sikap dah kene baru rase. So tk rase sgt..and sikap akutakpedulisme .. /swt

Second group - Egypt and Malaysia
Egypt - Palestine is just nearby.. so we just feel as our neighbours are oppressed, and maybe will spread to us.
Malaysia - Palestine is so far away, ..

But actually the bond is Faith. The strongest bond ever. So for whom doesn't even care about our Palestinian brothers, is the one who doesn't have the bond of Faith, would I say that?
Well Muhammad S.A.W already said it.

Our Obligation
1- Pray for them in every prayer, for their health, their condition, their victory, and more important, for us to be part of them fighting our real enemies.
2- Boycott - Arab Quote for Boycott -
إن قاطعت فإنك لن تموت , وإن لم تقاطع فإن غيرك سيموت .
If you boycott, you will never die, but if you don't, people other than you will die -

3- Donate (just give your donation to Aman Palestin, they got the trusted link :) )
4- Keep in touch for our brothers in Palestine, Palestine issues is the most important for now.
5- Spread the Issue, for people among us will know, and that shows our concern and empathy.

The most important is Amal. Because what matters is deed, not words.

Maybe that's for now.
One phrase from Qur'an to be looked on -
أيبتغون عندهم العزة فإن العزة لله جميعا
Adakah mereka menyangka mereka mempunyai kemuliaan, sedangkan kemuliaan hanyalah milik Allah kesemuanya.
-Surah An-Nisaa'
Some lesson from my point,
Kadang2 kita rasa kita hebat, betul, dengan kesalahan kita sendiri, dan orang2 yang tak buat kesalahan taktau pon ape yg kite rase. Kemudian kita kemukakan hujjah-hujjah akal dan hati, serta hujjah2 pengalaman .. secara tak langsung kita menolak hukum2 Allah, sedangkan sejuta perkataan dan pengalaman.. langsung tidak dapat lawan dengan secebis syariat dan akidah yang datang dari Tuhan. Semoga menjadi renungan buat diriku ini.

And My mercy is beyond everything ..

O Allah,
Everything happen to Your wills,
Behind Your wills is Your infinite mercy,
Behind Your mercy is Your Heaven,
And behind Your heaven is . . Your satisfaction.

O Allah,
I can't live my life without You,
I can't get through it without You,
I know the hardship is my fights,
And destiny is Your rights.

O Allah,
Why I can't get myself clear ?
Why I can't make it better ?
Why I am so weak that I curse myself for it ?
Am I a servant without spirit ?

O Allah,
Your mercy is already shown,
Your blessings are already known,
But my weakness make me blind,
For I am a servant who doesn't even understand Your sign . .

O Allah,
Keep me in Your custody,
Keep me in Your sanctuary,
For I may fall down in the deep hole,
And for I may not even know what makes me crawl . .

O Allah,
Take it over my soul,
And make it Your gold,
I cannot stand it alone,
For over everything I prone . .

O Allah,
The only One who knows me is You,
For You are my only hope,
My weakness keeps me away from any clue,
That I cannot thrase the 'rope' . .

O Allah,
For my sake of this path,
For my path to Your flow,
Make me awake that I can forget the past,
For Your Deen I will make it glow. .

From the nothingness to the womb,
Till the Day of Doom,
I witnessed by myself Your divinity,
Your Oneness and You are The Almighty,
Make me die in the Oath,
For this life and the Hereafter .. I can't love them both,

O Allah,
All of Your tests are my 'trial and error',
But Your mercy . . . is the one who conquer.

From : A man of sin
To : God of all sinners

What comes next?

Salam to all readers,
Exam all done. Bil khauf war raja'.

For the first paper, (Tafsir) I was actually shocked, for the ways of examination in Al-Azhar. Time was limited, the questions were so many, the answers were going to be long (first thing came in my mind is that I have to answer those question just like I answer the SPM Papers, like it must be an essay and no 'point-point'). But actually, the lecturers prefer short answers and accurate. I realized it after the Tafsir paper.

After then on, all 4 papers were so alhamdulillah, Allah helped me. Maybe it was the result of whom prayed for me, jazakumullahukhairan kathiira.

So what comes next?
23Jan-4Feb - International Bookfair at Cairo
1 Feb - Akhi Shuhaib Ar-Rumy will get married with Ukht Uswah Hasanah
7-8 Feb - XPDC Sinai ISMA - InsyaAllah

Maybe I will blog some more, and fulfill the Awez's favour. (sori le tak terbuat2.. hehe)

Allah is with us.
Love you all in Malaysia.
-Mama Papa Kakyong Bangah Abg Ude Alak Nemah (bg can la respek sket name kau kat blog nihh) Hikmat, Adak, Oteh, Makmah and all of my family members and all readers.

Let's learn something about 'love' - Hayya nata'allamul Hubb

(this some kind of quotes I got from my IM friend "Mahmud Al-Khayyat")
(translated into English, maybe got some points missing, I will correct it if I remember)

Heaven, the path to it is Love

Loving Allah - Faith
Loving Prophet - Prove
Loving Parents - Obligation
Loving Spouses - Mawaddah - (dunno in english)
Loving Sons - Rahmah
Loving Human beings - Giving
Loving Friends - Ithar
Love is Sacrifice and Obedience

and last that is most important ..

Al-Maksiah kills the 'love'.

Touching huh?

Arab's style of writing is so different from Malay's.
