Ikhlasku Yang Tak Meet Match!!!!!

Awat tak tau aku rasa aku buat semua benda tak ikhlas larr!!!!!

 buat ibadah hanya sebab nak  dapatkan sesuatu ( Nak yang tuh,nak yang nihhh) !!

Hish Karut betoii hati ini..

Renungan untukk diriku :

Kebendaan itu boleh dibeli dengan wang ringgit , tapi wang ringgit itu tak dapat nak beli pengibadatn kita kepada tuhan pencipta kita.

Ingat salah satu pujian dalam Hadis 5: Penciptaan Manusia dan Takdirnya

...Demi Allah yang tidak ada tuhan  yang berhak disembah selain Dia, sesungguhnya di antara kamu  ada yang melakukan amalan  ahli syurga sehingga jarak antara dirinya  dan syurga tinggal sehasta.

Erk,Subhanallah..Siapalah aku kalau nak dibandingkan dengan mereka2 ini..
Jom bangun dari lumpur pekat, bersihkan niat yang penuh tersimpang mengejar duniawi!!!!
Baik aku kejar ukhrawi masa LONG HOLIDAY ni daripada aku terus berarak mengejar GANJARAN yang tak kupasti..


We live in a society that is based on judging others.  Often times, as Muslims, we tend to do the same thing in that we judge other people.  We think we know others’ intentions or we know where their heart stands.  We may look for a reason to pass judgment on a specific brother or sister or we may look for an excuse to consider them ‘off the manhaj’ as it is so often known as. 
However, in reality, ask yourself, “Who are we to judge others?”  As Muslims, we want and wish for the best for our brothers and sisters in faith.  They are a part of our family and thus we want nothing but the best for them.  What happened to making excuses and excuses for our brothers and sisters?  Who are we judge others?  No doubt, as Muslims, it is our duty to advise others and it is our duty to command the good and forbid the evil.  What would happen if we didn’t pass judgment on them, rather we just advised them instead?  Would something befall upon us?  Allah is the Judge and He will judge the people for indeed we do not know what is in the hearts of others, rather Allah knows what is in the breasts of mankind.
Imam Malik stated, “If I was given 99 reasons to declare a person deviant and one upholding their orthodoxy, I’d go with the latter!”  Imam al-Ghazali stated, “The hypocrite looks for faults, the believer looks for excuses.”  Al-Hafidh al-Dhahabi wrote, “I heard our Sheikh, Ibn Taymiyyah, d. 728 a.h, say towards the end of his life, ‘I will never declare anyone from the people of the Qiblah (Muslim direction of prayer) as an infidel.’”
Ask yourself, do you REALLY want the best for your brother or sister if you’re looking for an excuse to throw them outside the fold of Ahlus-Sunnah or worse yet, even Islam?  Oh Muslim, make excuses for one another.  Make dua for one another.  Love one another.  The Messenger (SAW) of God told us that we would not attain faith until we love one another.  He (SAW) also told us that one is not a believer until he loves for his brother what he loves for himself.  Therefore, O Muslim, attain faith, become a believer (Mumin)!  May Allah (SWT) allow us all to be believers.  Ameen.

Always try to do good

“If someone intends to do a good deed and he does not do it, then Allah will, for him, write a full good deed. If he intends to do a good deed and he does it then Allah will write for him (in his account) with him (its equal reward) from ten to seven hundred times to many more and if someone intends to do a bad deed and does not do it, Allah will write a full good deed and if he intended to a bad deed and actually does it, then Allah will write one bad deed.”

What am I really?

by realfakescientist:
I am but a human is a sea of humanity.
I am creature amongst billions and billions and billions of living organisms.
I am a very small mass on a much larger one.
I am a spec of dust on rock, which is one of many rocks doing the cosmic and potentially infinite dance, going round and round.
I’m merely an atom that is a very small part of the whole body, the universe.
Most importantly, I am a servant of Allah (swt), iA.

Attachments: Emptying the Vessel

By Yasmin Mogahed
Before you can fill any vessel, you must first empty it. The heart is a vessel. And like any vessel, the heart too must be emptied—before it can be filled. One can never hope to fill the heart with God, so long as that vessel is full of other than Him subhanahu wa ta`ala (exalted is He).
To empty the heart does not mean to not love. On the contrary, true love, as God intended it, is purest when it is not based on a false attachment. The process of first emptying the heart can be found in the beginning half of the shahada(declaration of faith). Notice that the declaration of faith begins with a critical negation, a crucial emptying. Before we hope to reach true tawheed (true monotheism), before we can assert our belief in the one Lord, we first assert: “la illaha” (there is no illah). An illah is an object of worship. But it is imperative to understand that an illah is not just something we pray to. An illah is what we revolve our life around, what we obey and what is of utmost importance to us—above all else.
It is something that we live for—and cannot live without.
So every person – atheist, agnostic, Muslim, Christian, Jew – has an illah. Everyone worships something. For most people, that object of worship is something from this worldy life, dunya. Some people worship wealth, some worship status. Some worship fame, some worship their own intellect.  Some people worship other people. And many, as the Qur’an describes, worship their own selves, their own desires and whims. Allah (swt) says:
“Then seest thou such a one as takes as his god his own vain desire? Allah has, knowing (him as such), left him astray, and sealed his hearing and his heart (and understanding), and put a cover on his sight. Who, then, will guide him after Allah (has withdrawn Guidance)? Will ye not then receive admonition?” (Qur’an, 45:23)
These objects of worship are things to which we become attached. But an object of attachment is not just something that we love. It is something that we need, in the deepest sense of the word. It is something that if lost, causes absolute devastation. If there is anything—or anyone—other than God, that we could never give up, then we have a false attachment. Why was Prophet Ibrahim told to sacrifice his son? It was to free him. It was to free him from a false attachment. Once he was free, his object of love (not attachment) was given back to him.
If there is anything—or anyone—that losing would absolutely break us, we have a false attachment. False attachments are things that we fear losing almost to a pathological extent. It is something that if we even sense is drifting away, we will desperately pursue. We chase it because losing an object of attachment causes complete devastation, and the severity of that devastation is proportional to the degree of attachment. These attachments can be to money, our belongings, other people, an idea, physical pleasure, a drug, status symbols, our careers, our image, how others view us, our physical appearance or beauty, the way we dress or appear to others, our degrees, our job titles, our sense of control, or our own intelligence and rationality. But until we can break these false attachments, we cannot empty the vessel of our heart. And if we do not empty that vessel, we cannot truly fill it with Allah.
This struggle to free one’s heart from all false attachments, the struggle to empty the vessel of the heart, is the greatest struggle of earthly life. That struggle is the essence of tawheed (true monotheism). And so you will see that, if examined deeply, all five pillars of Islam are essentially about and enable detachment:
Shahada (Declaration of faith): The declaration of faith is the verbal profession of the very detachment we seek to achieve: that the only object of our worship, ultimate devotion, love, fear, and hope is God. And God alone.  To succeed at freeing oneself from all other attachments, except the attachment to the Creator, is the truest manifestation of tawheed.
Salah (5 Daily Prayers): Five times a day we must pull away from the dunya to focus on our Creator and ultimate purpose. Five times a day, we detach ourselves from whatever we are doing of worldly life, and turn to God. Prayer could have been prescribed only once a day or week or all five prayers could have been done at one time each day. But it is not. The prayers are spread throughout the day. If one keeps to their prayers at their specified times, there is no opportunity to get attached.  As soon as we begin to become engrossed in whatever dunya matter we’re involved in (the job we’re doing, the show we’re watching, the test we’re studying for, the person we can’t get off our mind), we are forced to detach from it and turn our focus to the only true object of attachment.
Siyam (Fasting): Fasting is all about detachment. It is the detachment from food, drink, sexual intimacy, vain speech. By restraining our physical self, we ennoble, purify and exalt our spiritual self. Through fasting we are forced to detach ourselves from our physical needs, desires, and pleasures.
Zakat (Charity): Zakat is about detaching ourselves from our money and giving it for the sake of God. By giving it away, we are forced to break our attachment to wealth.
Hajj (Pilgrimage): Hajj is one of the most comprehensive and profound acts of detachment. A pilgrim leaves behind everything in his life. He gives up his family, his home, his six figure salary, his warm bed, his comfortable shoes and brand name clothes, all in exchange for sleeping on the ground or in a crowded tent and wearing only two simple pieces of cloth. There are no status symbols at hajj. No Tommy Hilfiger ihram, no five star tents.  (Hajj packages that advertise 5 star hotels, are talking about before or after the hajj. During hajj you sleep in a tent in Mena, and on the ground, under only sky, in Muzdalifah).
Realize that God, in His infinite wisdom and mercy, does not just ask us to be detached from the dunya—He tells us exactly how. Beyond the five pillars, even our dress breeds detachment. The Prophet ﷺ tell us to distinguish ourselves, to be different from the crowd, even in how we appear. By wearing your hijab,kufi or beard, you can’t just blend in—even if you wanted to.  The Prophet ﷺ said: “Islam began as something strange, and it shall return to being something strange as it began, so give glad tidings to the strangers.” [Sahih Muslim]
By being ‘strange’ to this dunya, we can live in it, without being of it. And it is through that detachment that we can empty the vessel of our heart in preparation for that which nourishes it and gives it life. By emptying our heart, we prepare it for its true nourishment:

You werent and arent Muslim by coincidence..

Remember that. Remember that Allah chose you to be Muslim. Allah wanted you to grow up around a Muslim community, or a community that didnt contain Muslims either. Allah chose you to live where you are, struggle with what you have, and think the way you do.
You have a purpose. Your Muslim identity exists for a reason. And dont hesitate, Allah is there watching over you.

Two Words

This story left me in tears. I had to share it with you all!! InshAllah, we all benefit from it. 

He had never prayed two rak`ah (units of prayer) in his adult life. Born and raised in Egypt, he had continuously heard the athan (call to prayer) and the iqama (second call to prayer) rolling through the streets, calling the believers to prayer, but he had never voluntarily accepted the call. This included refusing to pray at the masjid on the first floor of the apartment building in which he lived; he passed by it day and night, on his way to work, on his way to spend hours at the local Hookah Café with his friends, and on his way home to his wife and children, only to start the routine of neglecting his prayers again the following day.
On one Friday, he was suddenly hit by a novel idea. “Why don’t I just try Friday prayer today? Just to see what it’s like? I’ll just try it,” the man thought. He came in late to the masjid; the Khatib (speaker) was already speaking. As the man was looking for a place to sit, he heard the words of the Khatib, “The Prophet ﷺ (peace be upon him) has told us:
كلمتان خفيفتان على اللسان ، ثقيلتان في الميزان، حبيبتان إلى الرحمن: سبحان الله وبحمده، سبحان الله العظيم
“Two words are light on the tongue, heavy in the balance, beloved to the Merciful: ‘Glory be to Allah and by His praise. Glory be to Allah, the Immense.’” (Bukhari)
The man, preoccupied with having just entered and finding a place to sit, only heard a few of the Khatib’s words. He sat, perplexed, turning the fragmented words over and over in his mind, “Kalimatan (two words)… habibatan (both beloved)… lil-Rahman (to The Merciful)… Subhan Allahi wa bihamdi (Glory be to Allah and by His praise)… Subhan Allah il-`atheem (Glory be to Allah, the Immense).” He had lost complete focus on the rest of the khutbah (sermon), overtaken by these words he had heard in passing, working hard to make sense of what the words could possibly mean.
After the prayer, he approached the Khatib directly. “Is all what you’ve said in the khutbah today true?” he questioned. Surprised, the Khatib responded, “I’ve said quite a bit in the khutbah today. To what specifically are you referring?” The man replied, “You said some words… Kalimatan… habibatan… lil-Rahman… Subhan Allahi wa bi hamdih, subhan Allah il-`atheem.”
The Khatib smiled in recognition. “Yes, those are in fact from a blessed hadith (narration) from The Truthful himself ﷺ. He told us:
كلمتان خفيفتان على اللسان ، ثقيلتان في الميزان، حبيبتان إلى الرحمن: سبحان الله وبحمده، سبحان الله العظيم
“Two words are light on the tongue, heavy in the balance, beloved to the Merciful: ‘Glory be to Allah and by His praise. Glory be to Allah, the Immense.’”
The man stood, overwhelmed, awestruck, in a daze. The words had penetrated through his heart and embraced his soul. Captivated, he continued to repeat the hadith of the Prophet ﷺ over and over to himself:
كلمتان خفيفتان على اللسان ، ثقيلتان في الميزان، حبيبتان إلى الرحمن: سبحان الله وبحمده، سبحان الله العظيم
“Two words are light on the tongue, heavy in the balance, beloved to the Merciful: ‘Glory be to Allah and by His praise. Glory be to Allah, the Immense.’”
He walked out of the masjid in a trance and left for his home. Upon entering, he gathered his wife and children. “Have you heard,” he began to tell them, “the words of the Prophet ﷺ? He has told us:
كلمتان خفيفتان على اللسان ، ثقيلتان في الميزان، حبيبتان إلى الرحمن: سبحان الله وبحمده، سبحان الله العظيم
“Two words are light on the tongue, heavy in the balance, beloved to the Merciful: ‘Glory be to Allah and by His praise. Glory be to Allah, the Immense.’”
From that moment, the man transformed. From his home, he would leave to work, from his work, he would go straight to the Masjid, and from the Masjid, he would immediately go back home to his wife and children. All the while, two words kept his lips moving and his tongue wet with remembrance, “Subhan Allahi wa bihamdi, Subhan Allah il-`atheem.”
Soon, his friends from the Hookah Café noticed his continued absence. They came to his apartment one day. “Where have you been?” they asked. “We haven’t seen you smokin’ hookah with us for a while.”
A beautiful, wistful look came over the man’s face. “Haven’t you heard?” He replied to his old crew from the café, “The Prophet ﷺ has told us:
كلمتان خفيفتان على اللسان ، ثقيلتان في الميزان، حبيبتان إلى الرحمن: سبحان الله وبحمده، سبحان الله العظيم
“Two words are light on the tongue, heavy in the balance, beloved to the Merciful: ‘Glory be to Allah and by His praise. Glory be to Allah, the Immense.’”
And this is how he spent his days; reminding his family, his friends, those in the masjid and those who passed by in the streets, about the beloved words to Allah, those heavy words on the scale, those words light on the tongue, “Subhan Allahi wa bihamdi, subhan Allah il-`atheem.” The man had gone from a person who never prayed, spent little time with family and frequented the house of hookah instead of the House of Allah subhanahu wa ta`ala (exalted is He), to a person who longed for Allah (swt), whose eyes were filled with tears, whose tongue, heart, and soul burned with the inscription:
كلمتان خفيفتان على اللسان ، ثقيلتان في الميزان، حبيبتان إلى الرحمن: سبحان الله وبحمده، سبحان الله العظيم
“Two words are light on the tongue, heavy in the balance, beloved to the Merciful: ‘Glory be to Allah and by His praise. Glory be to Allah, the Immense.’”
Soon, he fell ill. It had only been a few months since he had gone to the masjid, since he had first heard the beloved words of the Prophet ﷺ by the Khatib in a Jumu`ah (Friday) khutbah. He told his son to go and to ask the Masjid administration to call upon that very Khatib to come visit him in his illness.
When he was informed, the Khatib remembered the man immediately and rushed to his apartment. Upon being let in, he saw the man, sleeping in his bed, the doctor sitting at his side. The Khatib sat at the foot of the bed and waited for the man to awaken. Finally, the man stirred and he noticed, at the foot of his bed, the very Khatib who had related the beloved, noble words of the Prophet ﷺ.
The man looked at the Khatib. He then asked him, “Have you heard? The Prophet ﷺ has told us:
كلمتان خفيفتان على اللسان ، ثقيلتان في الميزان، حبيبتان إلى الرحمن: سبحان الله وبحمده، سبحان الله العظيم
“Two words are light on the tongue, heavy in the balance, beloved to the Merciful: ‘Glory be to Allah and by His praise. Glory be to Allah, the Immense.’”
With that, the man passed away.
The Khatib in this story is the teacher of my Arabic teacher. My Arabic teacher related this incident to me and continued to stress that it wasn’t a story from books of the past, it wasn’t a story coined to tug hearts, it was the true story of a man who was completely disconnected from Allah (swt), but to whom Allah (swt) gave a passing thought to enter the masjid, and who Allah (swt) blessed with hearing the words of the Prophet ﷺ at a time and in a way which truly impacted his soul and final actions in life.
My teacher then told me, “The Prophet ﷺ has said: ‘Convey from me, even if it’s just one ayah [verse]…’” (Bukhari).
We never know what word or action, done with a sincere intention, will truly be a means of impacting another person’s life to come back to Allah (swt).
Let’s stop judging people; let’s stop driving people out of mosques because “we” deem their dress, their swagger, their accessories, or language as something “unsuitable” to the House of God. Let’s stop assuming they’ll never be guided to “our righteous path” (since we’re so righteous, we guided our own selves, right?) and thus resolve to harsh words or disapproving stares. Perhaps those who “we” think are far from Allah (swt) will pass in a more honorable, beloved state to the One Who guides.
Let us be the first to cling to the beloved words to Allah (swt), “Subhan Allahi wa bihamdih, subhan Allah il-`atheem,” and let us warmly, sincerely and smile-fully be a means of helping ourselves and others come back to Allah (swt)—with His Power and Mercy—through relating the beautiful words of Allah (swt) and His Prophet ﷺ, through action and speech. We never know what small, miniscule act, may be a means of guidance for ourselves and another, and a means of possibly entering jannatul firdose al `alaa bi ghayri hisaab—The Highest Paradise, without any reckoning.
May Allah (swt) bless this man’s soul. Subhan Allah—if he had died like any other person who knows about the obligation of prayer and lazily defies praying, we would never know his story—he’d just be another person who passed away in another country, a person we may have never even known existed..
But perhaps because of his repentance and his sincere coming back to Allah (swt), Allah has blessed us with coming to know of him—so that his actions will continue to be rewarded even while he’s in his grave, every single time any one of us, because of his story, even across the world, remember to say, Subhan Allahi wa bihamdi, subhan Allah il-`atheem.”

What will you do—so sincerely—that Allah (swt) will bless people with being transformed because of you, even after you’ve passed on?

Doa Iftitah

Doa  Iftitah , ialah ucapanmu yang pertama kali iaitu “ Aku hadapkan wajahku kepada Dzat yang menciptakan semua langit dan bumi .” Wajah yang dimaksudkan bukan wajah sebenar, kerana wajah  sebenarmu hanya engkau hadapkan kepada kiblat, tetapi wajah hati yang sebenar dengannya ialah engkau menghadap wajahmu kepada Pencipta semua langit dan bumi.
Perhatikanlah apakah wajah hatimu menghadap kepada angan-angan dan berbagai obsesinya di rumah dan sekolah, kolej, mengikuti syahwat, ataukah menghadap kepada Pencipta yang berkuasa ke atas langit dan bumi  ini? Jangan sampai pembukaan munajatmu  itu dusta dan palsu. Wajah tidak akan menghadap kepada Allah kecuali dengan memalingkannya dari selain-Nya. Berjuanglah segera untuk menuju kepada-Nya. JIka engkau tidak mampu melakukannya terus-menerus maka hendaklah ucapanmu jujur dan benar adanya.

Bila engkau mengucapkan,  “….hanifan musliman “ (berlaku lurus dan memberi keselamatan), maka hendaklah terbayang dalam benakmu bahawa orang Muslim adalah orang  kaum  Muslimin terselamat dari gangguan lidah dan tangannya. JIka tidak demikian, maka engkau dusta. Berjuanglah untuk berlaku demikian di masa akan datang, dan sesalilah berbagai peristiwa buruk  mahupun memori hitam yang berlaku pada masa lalu.
Bila engkau mengucapkan, “ Dan aku tidak termasuk orang-orang Musyrik”, maka ingatlah dalam benakmu akan kemusyrikan yang tersembunyi, kerana firman Allah “ Barangsiapa mengharapkan pertemuan dengan Tuhannya maka hendaklah melakukan amal soleh dan tidak menyekutukan seorang pun dalam beribadah kepada Tuhan-Nya.” ( al-Kahfi: 110 ) turun berkenaan dengan orang yang beribadah dengan tujuan mencari reda Allah dan pujian manusia. Hati-hatilah dari kemusyrikan ini dan hendaknya engkau merasa malu di dalam hatimu jika engkau menyatakan tidak termasuk orang-orang yang musyrik tetapi engkau tidak terbebas dari kemusyrikan ini, kerana istilah kemusyrikan ini berlaku pada yang sedikit dan banyak.
Bila engkau mengucapkan, “ Hidupku dan matiku untuk Allah” maka ketahuilah bahawa ini merupakan keadaan seorang hamba yang tidak memiliki dirinya dan menjadi milik Tuannya. Jika ucapan itu muncul dari orang yang keredaan,kemarahan,berdiri,duduk, semangat hidup dan rasa takutnya dari kemtian kerana perkara-perkara dunia maka hal itu tidak sesuai sama
sekali dengan pengucapannya.
Bila engkau mengucapkan, “Aku berlindung kepada Allah dari syaitan yang terkutuk” maka ketahuilah bahawa ia adalah musuhmu yang sentiasa mengintai untuk memalingkan hatimu dari Allah, semata-mata kerana dengki kepada munajat yang engkau ucapkan kepada Allah dan kerana sujudmu kepada-Nya, padahal ia dilaknati dengan sebab satu kali sujud yang ditinggalkannya.Permintaanmu akan perlindungan Allah darinya ialah dengan meninggalkan apa yang disenanginya dan menggantinya dengan apa yang disenagi Allah, bukan dengan ucapan semata-mata.

Hmm...appreciate what we have for all this tyme being and do appreciate that we have a great and fabulous family to rely on

   Me and Luke 
 By: Audrey O Hearn
. . . I asked if I could hold him for a little while. The young nurse had to go ask one of the hammer-faced ones, and she had to look at me real hard, but finally they decided between them that I wasn't going to hurt the kid.
They took me into the nursery office and made me put on a white jacket backwards and tied a piece of cotton around my mouth and nose. And then the young one brought my son out and put him in my arms, showing me how to support his head, which was all floppy, and tucking the rest of him into my spread-out palm so he was tight against my chest.
He looked me straight in the eye, and all of a sudden I knew it was him and me against all the nurses, parents, teachers - you name them. And I remembered the morning I woke up and my father was gone.
After I gave him back, I went down the hall to Lorene to find out more about this adoption business. I wasn't going to hand this great kid over to some losers who maybe wouldn't even look after him right.
However, Matt Wilson's girlfriend wants to give up the baby, get on with her life,"have some fun. Buy some new clothes." Lorene's mother, who completely blames Matt for her daughter's pregnancy and the gossip it has provided for neighbours, is completely hostile to him and equally adamant that the baby be adopted. After their conversation, Matt heads toward the nursery, ostensibly to return baby Luke after Lorene feeds him. But, Matt's misgivings about his son's future overwhelm him, and instead of taking the baby back, he walks towards the elevator and leaves the hospital with Luke nestled in his jacket.         
     At age seventeen, Matt does not have great prospects: he's a high-school drop-out, living in a boarding house on the income from casual jobs (and he's currently without one); his mother has remarried and moved to California; and his high-school buddies have pretty much forgotten him. His only other relative is his grandmother who has retired to her cottage on Georgian Bay. Leaving Lorene a note stating, "I have Luke with me. I'll take good care of him," Matt catches a bus heading north to Midvale, a town in cottage country. The soggy jacket resulting from Luke's soaking his dad's improvised diapers make Matt realize just how little he knows about the care and feeding of infants, and he's uncertain of how his grandmother will react when he arrives with Luke.
     Gram is clearly a no-nonsense sort of lady, and she takes charge of the situation very quickly. But, she also makes it clear to Matt that he must shoulder his share of the responsibility, and surprisingly, he eases into it remarkably well, even facing the three o'clock feedings with his "little buddy." He finds a job and explores the possibility of a new relationship - although he is disappointed when his potential girlfriend expresses total disinterest in children. Over time, with Luke and Gram, Matt settles into a routine of family life, although this family of an old lady, a baby and a teenager is clearly unconventional. But a fire at the abandoned cottage next door to Gram and investigations into Luke's situation create a real crisis for the family.

     Remarkably, things work out for Matt: he finds a job and a future working at the butcher shop in Midvale, makes some new friends, and finally, obtains legal custody of the "little guy" who has won his heart. He has dreams for his son's future, even though, like any parent, he worries about having done the right thing for the child. As for Lorene, one day, she and a new boyfriend drive out to visit Matt and Luke. The visit is awkward and ends with her assurance that she'll be back, but Matt has his doubts. With those doubts, he understands how their past relationship has changed both of them, and then realizes that in some way or another, Lorene will always be a part of his present life with Luke.
     Young adult literature is full of stories about pregnant teens, but the protagonists are invariably female (and set in American high schools - I liked the Canadian context). Me and Luke is unusual, not only for telling the story from the viewpoint of a teen father, but in depicting, in a very realistic and unsentimental way, the bond that develops between Matt and Luke and how it catches the young father by surprise. Nor does the book minimize the difficulty of raising a child without support, both emotional and financial. But readers cannot help but admire Matt for refusing to back down from the challenge that faces him. It's not a challenge that every young man could face and win, but Matt knows that this is his destiny. At the custody hearing, he states: 
"I know I'm an ordinary guy. It might turn out that the only thing I ever do to make my mark, is to stand by Luke. For the rest, I think I've found out that I do need other people and I'll be grateful for any help I can get if I keep Luke. I'll do my best by him." 
     Tough as it may be, we know that he will. A great story, with appeal both for male and female readers. Me and Luke is a worthwhile addition to high school library collections and a useful supplemental work for high school Family Studies classes. Amazingly, this novel is almost two decades old, but it could have been written this year. Although teens seem more likely to keep their children, the situation is no easier for them than it was in 1987 when the book was first written.

Highly Recommended.

Mendongak ke langit...

Dawud Wharnsby Ali :: The Prophet

Mohamed Allaihisalaam
Sat quietly in the evening.
His companion asked,
�Oh beautiful man,
Why do you sit here grieving?�

My ummah, those who follow me,
The future of their faith
Makes me worry till I cry.
My brothers and sisters in Islam
Will they be strong and carry on after I die.

The Prophet stood silently and prayed,
His beard becoming wet as he cried for all his fears.
Oh Allah! Don�t let this nation fade,
As he pleaded through the night the earth around him filled with tears.

My ummah, those who follow me,
The future of their faith
Makes me worry till I cry.
My brothers and sisters in Islam
Will they be strong and carry on after I die.

La la la la
La la la la la
La la la la la
La la la ah
La la la la
La la la la la
La la la la la
La la la ah

A stillness fell over the land,
Companions gathered near to where the Prophet laid.
As Aysha his wife held tight to his hand,
The Prophet spoke again before he passed away.

My ummah, those who follow me,
The future of their faith
Makes me worry till I cry.
My brothers and sisters in Islam
Will they be strong and carry on after I die.

My ummah, those who follow me,
The future of their faith
Makes me worry till I cry.
My brothers and sisters in Islam
Will they be strong and carry on after I die.

Believers, brothers and sisters in Islam,
Will we be strong and carry on until we die?

(Petikan dari nukilan Kak Ada...sorry..tapi saya suka sangat)


Betapa hari ini apa yang kudapat adalah semata-mata KURNIAAN dari-Mu. Andai dihitung nilai usahaku, mungkin tidak layak aku mendapat nikmat sebanyak ini. Aku pernah di’reject’ semua universiti, tapi Engkau menghadiahkan ‘offer’ universiti ini pada malam itu.

Aku menangis lepas PMR, rase macam dah susah nak dapat A satu paper, tapi Engkau menghadiahkan hadiah yang tak pernah aku sangka akan dapat.

Belum dikira sudah berapa kali Engkau selamatkan aku di saat aku berjalan seorang pulang ke rumah, dalam keadaan takut jalan sorang-sorang. Berapa kali Engkau beri aku ketenangan saat aku sedih, takut, rasa macam takde harapan.

Berapa kali Engkau ilhamkan banyak perkara, dalam exam, dalam menyelesaikan masalah, bagi jalan keluar

Sesat, ada orang tolong guide. Takde duit, ade kawan tolong. Nangis, ade orang pujuk.

Nikmat ukhuwah yang dirasakan hari ini. Nikmat orang lain menyayangi kita, doakan kita.

Nikmat boleh makan, minum, bercakap, melihat.

Allah, malu. Malu sangat nak mintak lagi kerana kami sebenarnya jarang sangat bersyukur. Kami suka melihat pada apa yang tiada, melupakan apa yang kami ada. Tapi Allah, kami menebalkan muka, dengan air mata yang menjadi saksi. Kami lemah, Kami memerlukan-Mu, memerlukan bantuan-Mu saat ini.

Kabulkanlah permintaan kami, doa kami, doa sahabat-sahabat kami…Berilah yang terbaik buat kami, berilah kami hati yang redha untuk menerima segala ketentuan-Mu.

“Setiap bencana yang menimpa di bumi dan yang menimpa dirimu sendiri, semuanya telah tertulis dalam kitab (Lauh Mahfuz) sebelum Kami mewujudkannya. Sungguh, yang demikian itu mudah bagi Allah. Agar kamu tidak bersedih hati terhadap apa yang luput dari kamu, dan tidak pula terlalu gembira terhadap apa yang diberikan-Nya kepadamu. Dan Allah tidak menyukai orang yang sombong dan membanggakan diri.”(Al-Hadiid:22&23)

Sebenarnya kagum dengan dia. Besar sungguh ujian yang diterima-Nya. Tapi dia mengucap “Alhamdulillah ‘ala kulli haal

“Dan (ingatlah) ketika Tuhanmu memaklumkan, “Sesungguhnya jika kamu bersyukur, nescaya Aku akan menambah (nikmat) kepadamu, tetapi jika kamu mengingkari (nikmat-Ku), maka pasti azab-Ku sangat berat.”(Ibraahiim:7)

Alhamdulillah, Allah masih beri peluang untuk kita study. Insya Allah, jom Tera Giga kan usaha kita. Moga Allah bantu kita di sepanjang perjalanan. Allah, mudahkan urusan kami. Insha Allah, akan kami pulangkan nikmat yang telah Engkau berikan ini…

p/s:Jika saya lupa, ingatkan saya ye~

Yang lemah lagi dhaif,
