Otak dan hatiku kini tidak dapat melarikan diri dari kerisauan yang menekan kerana ternyata diri ini tidak berusaha sebanyak yang mungkin untuk menjayakan program ini... Ya Allah,,, tenangkanlah hati ini........ Mudahkanlah jalan ini...............

Hmm... Tidak ada apa-apa yang menarik untuk diceritakan buat masa sekarang...

Merdeka juga tidak menarik perhatianku. Walaubagaimanapun, kita sepatutnya bersyukur kerana negara ini telah merdeka dari penjajahan. Semoga berada di bawah naungan perlindungan Allah swt...

Beberapa rakan-rakan roommates saya yang sering berkunjung ke bilik saya pula asyik membicarakan tentang pertandingan di antara Siti dan Mawi.
Jauh lebih membosankan.
Walaupun tidaklah rancak mana...

"Great minds talk about ideas, average minds talk about events, SMALL MINDS TALK ABOUT PEOPLE".

Well, I can't blame them for making these celebrities an issue, and I'm not saying that they have small minds- uh-uhh... Saya cuma tidak puas hati kenapa tidak ada topik yang lebih baik dan lebih menarik untuk dibicarakan? Setiap kali, saya akan mengikut rentak perbualan mereka buat seketika, dan kemudiannya bersuara sambil menjatuhkan kepala di atas bantal tanda mengantuk dan tidak berminat: "Mengarut je la korang ni..." dan "Cuba la cakap pasal mende lain ke..."
Hehee...

Oh. Ada banyak cerita menarik sebenarnya. Cuma tadi berada di gear satu yang nasib baik tak termati... ^_^
Dan sesiapa yang tidak berminat untuk terus membaca entry ini, anda boleh proceed ke posting
HOPE: Palestine Revisited
Terima Kasih.

Hari ini 30 Ogos, sehari sebelum hari kemerdekaan tanah airku Malaysia, juga hari lahir abangku Isa. Dan 3 hari lepas, 27 Ogos adalah hari lahir adikku Atiqah yang kini sedang menuntut di Yemen bersama dua orang rakanku yang lain. 21 Ogos yang lepas adalah Hari Memperingati Al-Quds, juga adalah hari lahir adikku Basma.

Dan saya teringat, tahniah kepada Atiqah kerana berjaya dalam peperiksaan CAT. CAT stands for Certified Accountain Technician if I'm not mistaken. And it's the foundation course for ACCA - ermm... malangnya saya terlupa nama sebenar yang agak panjang - ACCA - hmm...
Saya perlu lebih berusaha dalam pembelajaran. Sila selalu ingatkan saya...!!!
p/s: kata-kata semangat yang dibuat beberapa minggu lepas hanya berjaya mendorong saya untuk bangun dari tidur, tetapi tidak berjaya menghentikan saya dari tidur berlebihan.

Hmm.......
Dan
saya sangat berharap saya dapat ke Ipoh sekarang.
Namun segalanya tidak membenarkan, termasuklah sebab dan alasan kenapa saya hendak ke sana.

Bersamamu Palestin!!!~

Hari itu dalam sejarah Malaysia...
Saya tak rasa humanitarian-oriented event sebegini pernah diadakan di atas muka bumi Malaysia selama sejak saya dilahirkan...
Oh! The event was excellent!

We planned to depart right after Asar prayers, but due to many reasons, we departed from IIUM main campus at about 6:30 p.m. on Sunday, 20th August 2006. Read al-Ma'thurat together in the car. Reached Senawang at about 8:10 p.m., and immediately headed for Maghrib n Isya' prayers (jama' & qasar)...


Departing - Palestine flag on both sides of the van.


- barisan akhawat -
*** Giant Senawang punye tempat solat tak practical langsung, abistu kene solat kat parking lot... sigh -_-" ***


one-fourth of the audience...


- barisan ikhwah -
ramai lagi, tapi yg ni je muat masuk.


... no comment ...
...eh, ade, rugi sangat kpd semua tak pegi...
(termasuklah yg bagi alasan ade quiz or class awal pagi esoknye)


bacaan ikrar yg diketuai oleh Saudara Safwan, naib pengerusi GEMA Palestin

Ikrar Solidariti Bersamamu Palestin
Bahawasanya kami , rakyat Malaysia yang prihatin dengan ini berikrar;
1. Berusaha sedaya upaya untuk membantu perjuanganmu Palestin
2. Mengutuk pencerobohan biadap dan rakus Rejim Zionis berserta kuncu-kuncunya
3. Mempertahankan kepentingan hak asasi rakyat Palestin
4. Memboikot barangan Israel dan negara lain yang bersekongkol dengannya
5. Meningkatkan kerjasama ke arah mendaulatkan Islam.
Dengan ini kami seluruh rakyat Malaysia berikrar akan berjuang bersamamu demi pembebasan bumi Al Quds.

kami akhawat adalah yang berada di barisan hadapan,
dan juga menyokong dan memberi semangat dari barisan belakang! ^_^

~~~ pembebasan ~~~
burung merpati dilepaskan ke angkasa sebagai tanda usaha pembebasan Falastin

p/s: nak cepat, going for horseback riding this evening! yay! nnt sambung...
*** continuation ***
"O ye who believe! If ye will aid (in the cause of) God, He will aid you, and plant your feet firmly"
- Muhammad:7-
We reached home at 2:30 in the morning. The nine of us cramped into my big room and soon fell asleep. Subhanallah! I really enjoyed it when I get to invite them overnight ^_^ even though we didn't really chatted or hang around. Everyone was exhausted.
We had good sahur the next morning. Thanks to Kak Seh for preparing Nasi Goreng Sedap. Siap siap siap... Nak balik UIA PJ, Kak Hamnah hantar...
.
But got stuck in peanut butter (read again: it's jam - traffic jam)... I was suppose to have Physics class at 8:30! At 9, I texted my classmate and alhamdulillah, she told me that our lecturer was on leave that morning. So, ALHAMDULILLAH! Takde rugi class that morning!
BUT, I was also reminded that I have a programming quiz at 10. I immediately opened my book, but my brain panicked and couln't focus.
.
Attended the quiz 10 minutes late, because I didnt realise there was a small notice on the lab window that tells us the venue of the class was changed to somewhere else...
But the quiz, alhamdulillah, it wasn't THAT hard. I pray that I can get full marks for that, and guys, please pray for me too. I really didn't remember bout it so I didn't prepare anything.
.
Pengajaran:
1. Bersungguh-sungguh dan ikhlaslah dalam melakukan sesuatu amal,
2. Rajin-rajinkan diri berkongsi apa yang kita ada dengan orang lain, dan ringankan tulang seringan-ringan yang boleh, dan
3. Jangan lupakan tanggungjawab sebagai seorang pelajar walaupun ada banyak fokus lain dalam perjuangan kehidupan.
.
That's basically it. Ilalliqa'...

To Have Peace With Israel?

A great friend of mine, Adilah Nasir, wrote:

just a thought

but the israelis blamed all reasons for their invasions and attacks and justification for building state israel because of the right to self-defence because throughout history, they have been discriminated and prosecuted against.

So if israel gave the world an ultimatum, such as this:
we'll stop all war, if you stop all forms of discrimination to us. which means malaysia, and most arab states must allow israelis into their country.

will we do it for the sake of them middle east (esp palestine)?

coz i'm not sure myself..

can anyone think of any bad repercussions?

p/s: her blog can be found at my Special Blogs list at the lower right hand corner of this blog.

********** my personal response **********

*note: i'm trying not to be or sound racist here...*

...
The thing is, throughout history, everyone know that the Israelis don't hold to promises, pledges and even resolutions.
I'm not good in politics or history, but let's just read it this:

Resolution 181 (1947-1949) was declared, dividing Palestine into two states: a Jewish State called Israel and an Arab State called Palestine. In the declaration it is clearly stated that Israel is prepared to cooperate with the agencies and representatives of the United Nations in implementing the resolution of the General Assembly of 29 November 1947, but what do we see today? it's not happening.

Then the resolution 242 (of 1967) called Israel to withdraw from the occupied territories of West Bank, East Jerusalem and Gaza. They withdrawed from West Bank and Gaza for a few decades, but returned to occupy West Bank, and now Gaza - after HAMAS won the election earlier this year. The world can see that the Israelis cannot 'handle' negotiations.

Then the resolution 194 where it was commanded by the UN that Israel must allow Palestinians to return to their homeland. But now? Don't mention let return, they're still forcing Palestinians to get out of their homes and destroy houses and lands...

I can't remember which resolution but the Israel promised not to occupy (of course that means not attack too) South Lebanon, but they did. Now, is not the first Israeli attack on Lebonon, FYI. When I was in Lubnan for two days, I saw with my own eyes buildings yang pernah kena bomb, the massacre site of Shabra & Shatila and Palestinians refugee camps. And bila baca buku Dr. Ang Swee Chai, From Beirut to Jerusalem, I was more convinced that we cannot achieve peace with Israel through negotiations.

Anyway, from what I know, since resolution and 242 and 338 (1973) took place, UN dah tak dapat buat ape2 with the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, because US all the time masuk campur and gunakan kuasa veto diorang.

The actual case here is actually bigger than the conflict we see. It's not just about giving the Israelis a Jewish State. It's about Baitul Maqdis. The rectangular site surrounded by walls, with Dome of the Rock slightly in the middle and Al-Aqsa mosque at one end, where one part of the wall is what the Jews call Wailing Wall (if im not mistaken) and Jews go there to pray every day.
In easier words, we can put things this way:

The Jews and the Arabs are two nations with two different beliefs. Israelis say that al-Quds belongs to the Jews, they want to build the Haykal Temple on the site Baitul Maqdis (which will have al-Aqsa Mosque destroyed) because that's the pre-requirement for their Messiah to come and save the world.

And the Palestinian Arabs, being the first line of defence representing the Muslims in not letting the Jews destroy al-Aqsa mosque, continue on not giving up, 1. because it's their homeland, 2. because Al-Aqsa is the third holiest mosque of Islam.


How to achieve peace through negotiations when two different nations with two different beliefs are struggling for one square site which cannot be divided into two?

*not my idea, I learn this from a book Our Sacred Land - Voices of the Palestine-Israeli Conflict written by journalist Kenize Mourad.

If you ask me personally, what is my stand... I say, WE FIGHT!
Enough of null negotiations for the the past half century.
Wallahu a'lam.

p/s: rase mcm tak puas lagi tulis. Huhu..
GUYS! You better read! What Abg Ali said yesterday is very true, kita semua ni nak buat kerja untuk Palestine - charity, fund raising, increasing public awareness... We should stand in the situation not just physically, but mentally and spiritually. Know and understand what's REALLY happening, not just the terrorism and occupation.

nikmat kesihatan...

Bila nikmat kesihatan ditarik walaupun, ramai yang mula merungut dan berubah lemah. Hanya duduk senyap di rumah, melayan kesakitan - satu tindakan yang dipanggil berehat...

Hehehe...
Bukan tak boleh berehat kalau demam... Tapi rasa macam lagi best kalau dapat keluar bersenam dan berpeluh dengan sihat. Bila dah exhausted, balik rumah, take a good shower and sleep deeply.
The next day, wake up early for prayers...
Doa, doa dan doa, mohon diampunkan dosa-dosa dan salah silap, dengan izin Allah, badan akan terasa sihat semula dan diri akan bersedia untuk berjuang lagi... InsyaAllah...

Peringatan buat diriku yang sering lupa...
Peringatan buat diriku yang sering menzalimi amanah ini...
Sahabat,
Berilah peringatan kepadaku...


p/s: sangat gembira dan sangat-sangat gembira, tiada lagi sengketa, tiada lagi perasaan yang sangat membebankan hati setiap kali teringat dan bertemu... ya Allah, terima kasih atas ujian ini, ujian yang sangat menguji kesabaran, ketabahan dan keteguhan dalam beriman...

Gambatte ne!

Started REAL SCHOOL this week!
Ha! Ha! You guys must be wondering what do I mean by that -_-"

I had my first programming quiz on Monday, received and submitted the assignment on Tuesday, forced myself to focus in physics class on Wednesday despite the damn headache throbbing, submitted my physics tutorial today (ya'ni Thursday) and next Monday (or is it Tuesday?) I'll be having physics quiz.
Yeah, for the second time in four weeks, I really sat down to 'study'. Working on tutorials can still be called studying kan?
Teruskan usaha!

I also found out that Physics III is not boring. My roommate passed by my class a couple of times and commented that I really look like a good student focusing in class. Hmm... That sounds good.
But, the fact is, in yesterday's class, I drew an elephant holding a present... And today I drew a horse with a rider beside him saying "I MISS RIDING!!!".
Oh. I really miss horseback riding.

So, back to the main topic, I'm telling myself again that I should concentrate on my studies.
I printed "KURANGKAN TIDUR & TINGKATKAN POINTER dengan meRAJINkan diri untuk BELAJAR" on a piece of A4 paper and paste it on my wardrobe (facing my bed so that I can see it everytime I lie on my bed).


sempoi je, takyah wat cantik2 sbb toner printer kaler itam

Hmm... Actually, I didn't spend my time sleeping all day long pun. No. Not in MCIIUM. I think...

Anyways, terasa macam nak kerat badan jadi empat (4) weekend ni..
1. Daurah Aqidah: Antara Iman & Kufur by Capt Hafiz Firdaus at MCIIUM. required to attend
2. Khalifah Childrens' Carnival at Shah Alam. volunteers needed
3. Walimatul 'urus Kak Iman Zairul. invited by the family
4. Training for Trainers - RE Palestine. ***

I'll be attending program number 4 insyaAllah. Why?
Because the seat is limited;
Akhawat (ya'ni sisters) are needed;
And it's painful just watching yet not moving when my fellow brothers and sisters are fighting hard to get back al-Quds into the Muslim hands.
Ayyuhash-Shabaabul-Islam!! Al-Quds Yunaadeekum!!
Oh Youths of Islam!! Al-Quds is Calling You!!

Gotta balance my schedule.
Gambatte!
Gambatte ne!
