Semoga Dia Segera Sembuh

Yesterday evening, shortly after the muadzin calls for Maghrib prayer, I received a call from a friend, K.Azzah. "Ina, Ina ada masuk insurans UiTM tu tak?", tanya k.Azzah dengan nada suara yang agak cemas. "Tak. Kenapa k.Azzah?", balasku. "Anak akak, si Zubair yang no-7 tu kena langgar. Akak kat DEMC ni. Nak call insurans, tapi nombornya tak boleh pulak. Tak pe lah Na.", ringkas penjelasan k.Azah. Masih berbaur kecemasan dari nada suara itu. And she cut off the line. I dare not ask many questions. I'm sure she is still in a state of not answering questions.

After Isya', I managed to get a contact for the insurance no. I called k.Azzah. "K.Azzah dah dapat no insurans?", I asked. Straight to the point. "Dah. K.Nab ada sini", short answer came from her. K.Nab is our dean, Prof Dr Zainab Abu Bakar. "Zubair macam mana, macam mana jadi?", I dared myself to ask her a question. "Dia kena langgar. Biasalah budak2 main basikal petang2 kat tepi padang. Ada kereta langgar dia dari belakang. Nasib baik kena basikal dia. Tapi yela .... jatuh atas jalan. Cedera la jugak", k.Azzah explained, brief. "Dia sedar tak sekarang?", I asked again. "Sedar, tapi kesakitan la tu. Doc dah bagi pain killer. Ni nak kena hantar ke Sg.Buluh sebab ada blood clot kat dalam otak. Kat DEMC ni tak ada alat, diorang tak nak take risk", K.Azzah briefly continue her explaination. I was quite shaking. BLOOD CLOT???? "Tak pe K.Azzah, mudah2an Zubair tak ada apa2 dan cepat sembuh", my last word to end the conversation.

Deep inside I am really praying for his wellness. Ya Allah semoga Zubair dipulihkan dari kecederaan yang dialaminya. Dan semoga ibunya bersabar dengan ujian ini. Sama2lah kita mendoakan Zubair. FYI, Zubair is 11 years old. The 7th child from 8 in the family. Murah rezeki k.Azzah.

30.12.2010

Salam semua,

Dah beberapa hari tak update blog. Bukan tak teringat nak update, teringat sangat, tapi tak berkesempatan. Hari ni, sempena penutup tahun 2012 ni, tak kira apa, nak update juga blog ni.

2010? 2011? 2012? Apa signifikannya? Pada zahirnya berbeza hanya pada digit nombornya. Perlukah ianya digembar gemburkan, disambut dengan begitu riang ria, pesta sini sana sehinggakan kekadang terlupa halal haramnya? Itulah manusia yang sering lupa .... bermegah dengan perkataan 'nasia' atau lupa dalam Bahasa Arab menjadikan kita rasa tidak apa kalau lupa, kerana perkataan 'manusia' itu sendiri hampir saja kepada an-nasia yang membolehkan kita LUPA. Apa yang kita lupa? Kita lupa bahawa sambutan besar-besaran yang kita rayakan ini lebih banyak kemungkaran dari kebajikan. Sana-sini diadakan perhimpunan 'count-down' untuk menyambut tahun baru. Apa pengisiannya? Dimanakah pengisiannya yang dapat mengingatkan kita, bahawa sambutan tahun baru ini menandakan permulaan hari baru. Dan dengan setiap permulaan hari baru maka kuranglah bilangan harinya untuk kita bersedia untuk mendampingi Allah dan Rasulnya.

Tahun baru siapakah yang ingin kita sambut secara besar-besaran ini? Bukan tahun baru kita. Bulan permulaan kita adalah Bulan Muharram, bukan Januari untuk turut dirayakan seperti orang-orang bukan Islam. Biarlah mereka dengan kegembiraan mereka, biarlah mereka dengan perayaan mereka, kenapa kita, yang mengaku beragama Islam ini ingin turut sama berpesta. Sering dikatakan bahawa hiburan diwujudkan untuk melalaikan umat Islam, tetapi hakikatnya, umat Islam itu sendiri yang bersalah kerana membiarkan diri begitu mudah hanyut dengan hiburan yang membawa kemungkaran. Hiburan tidaklah dilarang dalam Islam. Islam ini agama yang syumul, setiap ruang kehidupan telah digariskan dengan baik dan tidak sampai menyiksakan umatnya. Kenapa kita perlu rasa terkongkong jika disekat dari berhiburan melampau???? Kerana kita tidak menemui hiburan sebenar .... Aku sendiri masih mencari hiburan seperti hiburan yang diperolehi oleh para 'abid ketika mendampingi Tuhannya, Allah Rabbal 'alAmin.

Bukan bermaksud untuk membebel, tapi inilah apa yang membungkam dalam hati kecilku. Kecewa, sedih, bimbang dan dan dan ........ apabila mengenang generasi muda Malaysia yang semakin ramai cenderung kepada kegilaan dunia. Hati kecil ini juga rasa malu dan marah pada diri sendiri kerana terlalu lemah untuk menolak kemugkaran yang bermaharajalela kerana hanya mampu membencinya dengan hati tanpa punya daya untuk menggunakan TANGAN untuk menghentikan kemungkaran ini.

Ya Allah! Kau selamatkanlah anak-anakku, keturunanku, kaum muslimin dan muslimat seluruhnya agar terpelihara dari fitnah dunia ini. Amin.


wallahua'lam.

A Trip UpNorth Again (Part 1)

Last week Ayah decided to 'balik kampung' again. To visit our parents, mak&bapak in Permatang Pauh and mak&abah in Sg Petani. This time, ayah decided to travel after Friday office hours. Therefore, ibu got to prepare some tidbits to keep ayah's eye open through the journey, ibu, will definitely doozed off despite how hard I try to keep awake.

In order to reach Kampung as soon as possible, we decided not to stop during journey, thus, ibu prepared 'dinner' - the Nasi Goreng while Hakim & Sabrina were at the WetWorld Water Park with the cousins. Atikah? As usual, hooked to the internet.

At 6pm, ayah arrived home, early than he usually does. "Budak2 tu mana?", ayah asked. "Kat WetWorld dgn Mia dan Chal", I answered. Mia and Chal were the cousins. "Dah masak Nasi goreng untuk diaorang. Nanti tak payah berhenti makan lagi. lambat", I suggested. "OK", was the short reply from my husband. Few minutes later, the kids arrived home. "Ada makanan tak?", was their first question. "Ada, ibu dah masak nasi goreng. Makan kenyang2, nanti tak payah berhenti makan lagi.", was my reply. Bismillahirrahmanirrahim. Lega. Anak2 dah makan, so we can have a very brief stop at the R&R just to freshen ayah a bit, I thought. We begin the journey that night slightly before 8pm.

Approaching Rawang, a voice from the back row of the car is heard, "Kita nak makan kat mana nanti?". WHAT???!@#$%^ KORANG TAK KENYANG LAGI KE??? DAH SEKUALI NASI GORENG IN DIGESTION????



I looked at Ayah, Ayah smile .... hmmm .... anak2ku sedang membesar. OK kids, we'll stop for dinner somewhere.

Baling Selipar

Pernah main baling selipar? Siapa tak pernah main rugi oooo...... Bersempena cuti sekolah yang dah nak sampai ke penghujungnya ni, anak2ku and their cousins stayed for +-2 weeks at rumah Mak Tok. They EXTREMELY enjoyed their stay there, and Mak Tok had to bear with the shouting and yelling in the house. Luckily Pak Cik Li and Mak Cik Farah were there too.

Pak Cik Li memang rajin melayan kerenah anak2 sedaranya. Bayangkan .... two trips to AirTerjun. Hissh ...ibu pun tak sanggup. Yang lagi buatkan hidup kanak-kanak ni (Atikah pun kanak2 ke??) happening adalah games - tak kira electronic ataupun tradisional. One of the game that we had the opportunity to watch them play was the 'Baling Selipar'. Itu pun masa nak ambil anak-anakku dari kampung - on their last day at Mak Tok's.

Tau cara bermainya kan???
What you need is 2 pairs of slipper - campur2 pun tak apa. Yang penting ada 4 belah, and a ball. Tennis ball will do. No golf ball or hockey balls please ... kalau guna bola2 ni, mau bertelor dahi jadinya.

Ada 2 team: team A dan B. Mula-mula, selipar tu akan disusun membentuk piramid. Team A akan cuba merobohkan piramid tersebut dengan menggunakan bola tennis tadi. AIM..... baling .... Kalau kena dan piramid tersebut roboh, team A akan cuba sedaya upaya untuk membina piramid itu semula. Apa yang susahnya ye??? Tak semudah itu .....

Semasa team A cuba sedaya upaya untuk membina kembali piramid selipar tu, team B akan membaling bola tenis tadi ke arah pemain2 di team A dengan tujuan mematikan mereka. Ahli yang dah kena balingan bola itu, tidak lagi boleh membina piramid, (out you from the game). Jika team A berjaya membina semula piramid selipar itu, team A dikira menang. Jika kesemua ahli team A terkena balingan bola sebelum sempat membina piramid selipar, maka team A dikira kalah. Bila dah kalah tu, giliran team B la pulak untuk tunjuk bakat meroboh dan membangunkan piramid selipar.

Ok tak??? Tersangatlah OK. Memang happening... (pinjam istilah anak2 sekarang)

I used to play this when I was a child (memories again). During that time tennis ball is not easy to get (mahal!!!, orang kampung mana mampu), therefore we resort to using slipper to destroy the pyramid slipper --- Itulah yang jadinya 'BALING SELIPAR'.

Kalau yang belum pernah main, belum terlewat, boleh mula main sekarang ... kalau dah malu nak main, mungkin boleh ajarkan anak2 pula untuk bermainnya.

The girls' team. Standby untuk jaga piramid selipar.

The boys' team. Ready to destroy the pyramid.
Aim..... Baling! Gaya je lebih si Hakim tu.



Bila piramid tu dah roboh. Tugasan berikutnya ialah untuk membangunkannnya.
Tapi awas! Jaga2 dengan bola tenis yang sedang mencari mangsa tu.

Our Parents

A short message (sms) came in one morning while I was getting ready to work reads, "Sapa nak ganti K.Yan lepas 21hb ni". It was from my elder sister who was now in kampung to take care after my parents. Ouch!! I don't have an answer for that. I did not immediately reply the message. Not because I was too busy to reply, but because I do not have an answer for that. Not until now. It took me sometime to have the courage to reply the mail, but, with shame, "???? Ina memang tak boleh cuti dah. Ada meeting 21hb, 22hb dan 23 hb. Bawa mak mai Shah Alam?". That was my answer. Shame. Why shame? Because I could not allocate a piece of time to go back and take care of them. I was too busy with my worldly task. The best I could offer is to bring them over to my house. Even with that, I will not be around during the day time to look after them.

The saying like, "Ibu seorang mampu menjaga anak yang ramai, tapi anak yang ramai belum tentu dapat menjaga ibu yang seorang", keep coming to my ears. I was in dilemma. Between husband & family and parents, my priority has to be my husband whom has delegate the task to look after the kids to me - that is as required by Islam. But as a daughter, I feel obliged to take care of them. My brothers??? Yes, they are truly the one who are responsible to take care of the parents as their jannah is within a blessing of a mother, but can they take up the responsibility that also requires feminine's touch. Anyway, I salute my eldest brother, Abang, as he has sacrifices a lot in taking of the parents. No doubt, he has fulfilled the responsibility but of course with some limitation.

Looking into this I beginning to think .... our parents wanted us to be successful in our carrier, but being successful requires lots of our time which limits the time that we could spend with our parents. I am sure this is not something that are hoping for .... Ya Allah forgive me.

Looking forward, I wonder what will become when I am at their age???? With only 3 kids??? Lets don't think about it and just let's pray and hope that everything will be OK as ALLAH knows what is best for us. I am sure what we are facing now is a test from Allah on us all.

wallahua'lam.

Back to Work

Salam all,

Argh ..... hmmm ..... that was an enjoying weekend that I had... What? Talking about about weekend when it is already Thursday??? Well, I had a long weekend ... a holiday actually. Beginning Friday. Friday-Sunday was the Central Spectrum's family day (it is where my husband earn our living, Alhamdulillah) in Malacca. A Famosa, Alor Gajah, to be exact. Co-incidentally I have a conference in Malacca too from Monday-Tuesday. Therefore, from Alor Gajah we moved to the Malacca town, Mahkota Hotel. It was our first time at the Mahkota Hotel (though many times in Malacca before). The place is nice. It has two large pools. The kids were up to the heel, enjoying their time there while ibu at the conference. Ayah? Bored to death watching the kids enjoying their time at the pool. They did not even bothered to visit the Malacca town as we had visited it quite recently.

The family day was enjoying too. Upon arrrival, we join the 'Walk Hunt'. Phew!!!! What a walk! To someone who seldom walk that far, it was a perspiring evening for me. And Gosh!!! then I realised that I need to do some exercise .....huhuhu ...got time for that???? don't think so .... but it's important especially when i have been putting extra weight lately. So how??????? Anyway, we won the second place - a RM200 Jaya Jusco's voucher. Ok ape??? After checking-in to the apartment unit we were assigned to, we agreed on a 'Saidina' game. It was one of the best game ever as all five of us were playing together - something that we rarely had the opportunity to do together. Well, this is really a FAMILY DAY. Other activities were water activities at the A Famosa Waterpark, visited the Carnival at the cowboy town and to the Safari park. And of course the highlight of this family day is the DINNER and lucky draw --- huhuhu we were not lucky this time.

After Malacca, we stop by at our most visited town (South-bound), Port Dickson. We conclude our 2010 vacation at another hotel in Port Dickson. We found another fun-to-stay hotel. The kids EXTREMELY enjoy this stay. Large and comfortable room. We enjoyed the swimming pool together. We hope to come back here.

Sabrina & Hakim with their Kumon bags. Tu yang mahal tu!!! Cuti2 pun kena buat kerja. Kesiannnn.


After more than five days travelling, the heap of clothes to be washed - need not mention. Alhamdulillah it was sunny a day after we got back.

Back at the office, I took almost 1/2 a day just to responds to emails. Huhuhu..... Read it carefully, RESPOND not just reading it.

Well, life is a circle. Coming January, the semester begins and I will be again, inundated with heaps of things to do. And still, i LOVE my job. Thank you Allah for blessing me with a happy and wonderful life. Forgive me Ya Allah for I sometimes forget to show my gratitude to you. Forgive me Ya Allah.

"Then which of the favours of your Lord will you deny?"
Surah al-Rahman.

Suatu Bukti Kekuasaan Allah (Evidence of Allah the Creator)


I am now at a conferences, International Conference on Mathematics Education Research, ICMER 2010. Jadi hari ni nak cakap akademik sikit. Maklum la sedang duduk dalam majlis akademik.

It begins with a very enlightening speech by AP Dr Mat Rofa Ismail from UPSI. He talked about "Islamic Epistemology of Education". He talked about the Fibonacci set, as the Western call it. But it was originally defined by a Muslim, al-Biruni.

Dr Mat Rofa discussed about the 'Golden Ratio'. The theory tells that everything is developed in series. Mathematically, its proven. Real life?? This theory is proven through many things that Allah has created. We can see the spiral shape of our fingerprints, the spiral shape of the Milky way, the spiral shape of the typhoon, the spiral shape of the tornado and also the spiral shape of the tawaf activity when pilgrims perform their hajj or umrah.

Wow! Tak perasan pulak semua ni. Kesemua corak2 ini menunjukkan kebijaksanaan Allah dlam mencipta kejadian alam ini. Betapa cantiknya ciptaan ini. Semuanya diciptakan dalam suatu gandaan dari sekecil2 sel yang mempunyai bentuk yang sama yang digandakan bagi membentuk semua benda. Kesemuanya begitu teratur. Kesemuanya boleh disimpulkan melalui satu teori, the golden ratio. Subhanallah.

Citing Dr Mat Rofa, "the golden ratio reflects the epistemology interpretation of the unique ultimate of the Absolute One, the CREATOR OF THE UNIVERSE", ALLAH, YA RABBI.



*All images are dowloaded from the internet. Search keyword from google images as: tornado, milkyway and typhoons

MashaAllah. Subhanallah.

Atikah digigit kuda


Salam.

It's family day in Malacca. One of the stop is the SAFARI PARK, A Famosa. We enjoyed the train ride, passing through the animals (kita le pulak yg kt dlm sangkar). But of course the wild animals are the main attraction. Next we went on foot along the trails for more animals.

Photos? Yes, we took lots of them. We stopped at the horses area. The horses looks tame. nuzzling as people touches them. So, we decided to shoot photo with a horse. 'Ok kids, stand closer to the horse. Don't be afraid', I told the kids. One, two, SMILE! .... But ... oh, Atikah's sweater attracted the horse. Ouch!!! With it's strong teeth, it get holds of Atikah's sweater. Terkejut besar Atikah jadinya ...... (photo will be uploaded later). Chiao!!


Atikah belum perasan kuda dah nak mula menggigit

Akhir Sebuah Kehidupan

I had a late lunch yesterday, 3.30pm, therefore I stayed until Asar. As I have appointment that evening, I quickly rushed to the office after solat. On my way, I passed my husband. I am curious, 'awalnya ayah balik?', I uttered to myself. Curious, I checked my handphone. Yes, there's a message telling that Ustaz Hilmi has passed away. Innalillahi wainna ilaihi rajiun.

Ustaz Hilmi adalah ustaz yang mengajar kami tafsir sebelum diganti oleh Ustaz Firdaus. Dia meninggalkan seorang balu dan seorang anak lelaki berumur 3 tahun. Allah menjemputnya kembali kepadaNya setelah diuji dengan penyakit kanser.

Apabila aku ke surau petang itu, orang telah ramai di situ. Jenazah sedang dimandikan oleh suamiku. Kebanyakannya adalah anak didiknya, pelajar tahfiznya, saudara mara dan jiran. Jenazah disembahyangkan sebaik selepas solat maghrib. Jemaah begitu ramai.

Di petang Jumaat itu, jenazah disemadikan diiringi berpuluh kenderaan. Menurut suamiku, mata arwah seakan-akan basah ketika dikapankan. Ustaz telah menamatkan perjalanan hidupnya. Semoga Allah tempatkan ustaz Hilmi di kalangan orang yang dikasihinya. Dan ustaz merupakan orang yang keempat yang kukenal yang telah meninggalkan dunia ini sepanjang 2010 ini.

wassalam.

My Used to be Garden

Salam all,




I was going through my old digital photo collections and come across with these old photos --- flowers and plants on my used to be garden. Then I realized, many other photos has gone missing. i cannot remember where I saved it. That is what happen when you are unorganized. Nobody to be blamed my dear, it's your fault, 100% yours. I lost the photos of my used to be cactus collection huhuhu... It is a used-to-be garden as most of the garden area has to go for the expansion of the house (as the household expands .... in size ;-p).

Let's just walk through the yesterdays ....







I used to have a herbs garden at backyard where I normally pick my ingredients for the Nasi Ulam. But now, everything has to be picked at the market barter trade with some RM. Huhuhu... Well, people said, 'You have to give up something for something else'.

Apa2pun aku amat bersyukur dengan kurniaan Illahi yang tidak ternilai ini. Sekarang, taman kecilku sudah menghijau kembali. Walau tidak serimbun yang dulu selaras dengan kudrat ini.

Sayu ... Semoga diberi ketabahan

Salam all,

Was very busy lately that I even forgotten my mother's birthday on the 1st of December. Happy belated birthday mak! You are the world (ini tiada kena mengena dengan World yang selalu disebut-sebut orang yang sorang tu yea!).

Saturday balik ke kampung. Reach Kg Pertama at about 2pm. Saw bapak lying on the bed, helplessly. It's not him. He was not like this before. He was full of smile always, but not today. He kept to himself. Very silent. A lazy smile came out at the corner of his mouth when he saw us. When told that I bought him a Nasi Arab, his smile widen. I am very happy to make him happy. At about 4pm, we left bapak to go to Sg Petani.

Sunday, went for the engagement ceremony of my nephew in Kuala Nerang, Kedah. Late that evening, before leaving Sg Petani for Kg Pertama, we stopped at a Restoran to buy some murtabak. Reaching Kg Pertama, I saw bapak was still there, lying on the bed. Trying to get up into a sitting position with difficulty. When my kids try to reach his hand, he opened his eyes and put the happiest smile to see his grandchildren. "Bapak, Ina beli murtabak, bapak nak?", I asked immediately. Bapak nodded and keep on smiling. Atikah quickly cut the murtabak into pieces and hand it over to bapak. Bapak ate the murtabak happily. Bapak has not been eating happily for few days now. He eats because he has to. Allah has taken his appetite, and I really hope it is only temporary. That night, i slept beside bapak.

Bapak is not himself. He was unable to walk steadily. He needs assistance to stand up and walk. I can see him agonizing, pain each time he wants to stand up. His sleeps are not sound anymore. He tossed over and over and over during the night. He uttered a word with difficulty. His solat is not proper anymore as he sometimes forgot the steps, I am not sure whether he got his recitation correct.

Monday, we have to leave. Life goes on. We left half-heartedly. Bapak was still there, lying on the bed or sometime sitting at the edge of the bed. I am not sure whether he is aware of what is going on around him.

Ya Allah! Kami redha dengan ujian ini kerana kami yakin ujian ini akan mendekatkan kami kepadaMu ya Allah. Aku pohon padaMu Ya Allah, semoga ujian kesakitan ini akan mengkafarah segala dosa-dosanya yang lalu. Dan Kau jadikanlah akhir hayatnya sebagai orang yang beriman. Ya Allah! Kau berikanlah kesabaran serta kekuatan kepada ibuku untuk menjaga bapaku. Ya Allah, ampuni dosaku atas kekuranganku dalam menjaga ibubapaku.
Amin.

Anak Dara Kita (Our Daughters)

Salam all,

2 days off from blogging, but not my mind. I even managed to compose the sentences that I would want to type in my blog (in my mind), but I cannot accommodate the blogging activity within the 24hours a day given to me by the creator, Allah ya Rabb. So many, many things are going on. Rushing as always to complete a task, one after another. And my schedule for December is almost full, that is not including preparing the exam question before the semester begin yet.

That Thursday, it was almost 4.45pm, I was rushing to the administration building. By hook or by crook I need to get the signature of the deputy dean by that day and send the letter off to the ministry early next morning. As I was crossing the road separating our building and the admin building, I saw Ust Firdaus parking his car. 'Subhanallah, it's tafsir class today. and Ustaz is already here', I said to myself. I rush to deputy dean's office. Breathlessly I explained the letter to him and ask for his signature. Then I quickly rush back to my room to perform my solat before joining the class.

When I entered the class, Ustaz was talking about 'istighfar' and 'taubah'. According to Ustaz, istighfar is not considered taubah but when we perform taubah, istighfar will definitely be part of it.

Now to the main topic for today's entry.

Ustaz also mentioned that, according to Hadith Sohih: (the description is something like this)

When rewarded with daughters, and if we are able to educate them well,
teach them what is wrong and right.
And they obeyed us and become ahlul-jannah,
the daughters will be an obstacle, a shield that will prevent the parents from the fire of hell, jahannam.

But ....
the daughter must be ahlul-jannah, or else, she will not be able to become the shield.


At that time, I was hoping, praying that I would be a daughter that would become a shield that will prevent my parents from the fiery fire of the jahannam. And I was also hoping and praying that my daughters will also become the ahlul-jannah and become our shield. Which means that there's a heavy task ahead of us to educate our daughters. Educate alone is not enough, as we, parents must also make sure that they will become ahlul-jannah. How? We, must also consistently guide them and do not let them go astray, guide them in choosing their path, in whatever things that they do, from a simple thing like the choice of dress that they wear to their choice of friends. Everything. Even if they have turn from a child, to teenager or even if they have become adult, the responsibility to guide will never stop.

I am worried enough just by looking and reading about our teenagers nowadays.

Ya Allah, Kau peliharalah anak-anakku, zuriat keturunanku. Peliharalah mereka agar tetap berada di jalanMu, janganlah kau pesongkan hati mereka setelah Kau berikan petunjuk. Ampunilah dosa kami kerana kelalaian kami dalam menjalankan tanggungjawab kami untuk mendidik anak-anak kami. Semoga anak-anak kami termasuk dalam golongan hambaMu yang Engkau redhai dan berkati sepanjang usia mereka. Amin.

wassalam.
