Reflections from Akademi Dakwah Muslimah

Bismillah,
Alhamdulillah, I'm back after 6 months!  Completing my final year studies and finishing all the projects on time did really acquire me to make some sacrifices, my blogging time is one of it. Nevertheless, I've successfully graduated from UTP since the last two months and here I am now, back in Perlis.
Frankly saying, I think this is the longest period of my stay at home since I started my degree studies 5-years ago. Most of my semester breaks were spent doing SRC works, couple of Minggu Aluan Siswa (MAS) weeks and study related matter. For now, It's kinda payback time. 😂
Alhamdulillah, last weekend I attended Akademi Dakwah Muslimah at Tasoh Lake Resort, organized by Jabatan Mufti Perlis. The 2-day seminar covered 6 topics which I found to be very attentive and practical as a Muslimah. Being a student not from Islamic Studies background did give me the chills at first, however after a couple of hours listening intently to the speakers, I've gotten a good kicks…

Duhai Adinda

Duhai adinda,
Aku faham gusarmu,
Ditinggal seorang,
Dibiar berjuang,
Sepi kamu sendiri.

Maafkan aku, kekandamu.
Kerana tiada di sisi,
Aku juga pernah melalui,
Sepertinya tangis ini berbekas lagi,

Jalan yang kita pilih ini,
Tiada manusia yang menjamin,
Melainkan dia yang Esa,
Yang Maha Hidup,
Yang Maha Mendengar,

Tempat mencurahkan segala kesal,
Limpahan perasaan,
Doa yang tiada bertepian.
Disebalik esak tangis di penghujung malam,

Menjadi pemimpin itu bukan mudah,
Apatah lagi,
Kita ini Hawa',

Kamu kuat, adinda,
Senyumlah,
Teruskan bersinar,
Mungkin kita tidak akan lama bersama,
Medan di luar menggamit masa,
Teguhkan dirimu,
Jangan gugur,
Jangan undur.

He Knows

There's just a couple of days before my Senior Year kickstarts.  Haven't really brush off the internship bug, I found my HSE colleague amiss.  Despite the high living cost, I kinda miss the simplicity of living there, as an intern.  It is peaceful there and the idea of being able to make mistakes and to learn from mistakes, is just intriguing.
Not really sure whether I'm just overthinking or it's the habit inside, I keep seeking for my purpose of living.  Yes, Allah has stated in Az-Zaariyat about our role as a caliph and in another verse, as an abid . It's there, clearly written.
But as a typical human, I just can't help but to keep seeking the reasoning of living, to answer these unanswerable questions.
Am I doing the right thing?What the future has in store for me?Have I been a good daughter?Can I make it till graduation?Can I survive after graduation?What can I do more?Have I impacted the society I'm living in?
and the list goes on.
This also includes the sh…

Menjadi Orang Bermasyarakat

Bismillah,
Antara perkara yang dipelajari semasa berpraktikal hampir 6 bulan di Kerteh ini adalah untuk belajar hidup bermasyarakat. Melalui program-program Nisa', usrah Ameerah, aktiviti BAKIP dan juga interaksi dengan staf-staf Carigali sendiri, menjadi pelajar engineering tidak bermakna dengan penggunaan jargon-jargon teknikal dan laras bahasa berkadar tinggi.  Segala ilmu yang aku pelajari hanya akan jadi bernilai apabila aku benar-benar faham, lalu dituturkan dengan bahasa yang lebih mudah agar bermanfaat kepada pendengar. Supaya mereka faham dan maklum akan hal yang sebenar, tanpa mengira latar belakang.
Ada Apa Dengan Menjadi Orang Masyarakat? 
HAMKA menyebut akan erti orang bermasyarakat dalam tulisannya Pribadi Hebat yang bunyinya begini :" Dia suka bergaul, suka menolong, tidak menyisih dari masyarakat,  tidak memikirkan kepentingan diri sendiri atau keluarganya sahaja, tidak gila pangkat, mengerti kedudukan orang lain dan merasa dirinya ikut dalam kedudukan itu.  Horm…

Bicara Tentang Semangat Kepemudaan

Pembuka kata dari HAMKA dalam tulisannya Pribadi Hebat
Membaca buku HAMKA, dan beberapa tokoh lain misalannya, sangat menyentuh tentang pentingnya menggunakan masa muda sebaiknya. Seperti Sultan Mehmet Al-Fatih yang berjaya membuka Constantinople pada usia 21 tahun, pada usia 22 tahun kota apa yang bakal aku buka? Itu satu soalan yang selalu terbit dan terngiang-ngiang dalam minda. 
Hero dari Zaman Silam

Rasulullah s.a.w pada masa mudanya sudah merantau ke ceruk negara, ketika usia Baginda 25 tahun sudah 18 kali menjejak negara luar sehingga ke Yaman, Syria, Basrah dan Bahrain.
Kisah Ashabul Kahfi dan Ashabul Ukhdud (rujuk Surah Al-Buruj ayat 4-8) , juga berkisar tentang pemuda-pemuda yang cuba mempertahankan keimanan mereka, lalu diuji dengan cubaan yang berbagai-bagai.
Mereka dari zaman masing-masing, kita pula bagaimana? Dalam suasana yang rencam, ditekan dengan cabaran ekonomi, sosial dan akhlak yang membingungkan, siapakah pemuda yang bakal bangun untuk mempertahankan Ummah ini?

Notes from Seminar Akhlak : Menuju Kesempurnaan Peribadi (part 1)

Bismillah,


Alhamdulillah, last week I had a chance to attend 'Seminar Akhlak' organized by Gabungan Belia Institut Ibnu Al-Qayyim in UIA. I can say that the 6-hour trip from Dungun to KL was worth it as the content of the program were superb!  As their first time organizing this inaugural seminar, the programme secretariat did a great job.  Really wish that I could do the same in UTP, hopefully Biiznillah :)




Well, moving on to the content of the seminar, we were intrigued to listen to the 5 speakers, each of them specialized in their own field.  I have my own stand in seeking for 'ilm, that knowledge is knowledge, haq is haq, bathil is bathil.  We need to appreciate more in order to learn.  I'm not saying that our system of tarbiyah/education is inadequate,  it lined up everything that is essential.  Yet, as a Muslim progressing towards betterment,  we should put effort in closing the gaps, as the boundaries of knowledge reaches no horizon. Try to learn something about e…

Of Reed Beds and Blessings

Assalamualaikum :)
This has been my 6th month residing in Kerteh, finishing my internship journey.  Time really flies without mercy here, it's all up to us to decide on what to fill it in. KhalasToday I was given an opportunity to visit a reed bed site in a nearby plant.  Well, as an intern, a number of questions spontaneously popped up in my mind.  
What is reed bed?The answer of this question, given by Mr. Wikipedia is reed beds are aquatic plant based systems which allow bacteria, fungi and algae to digest the sewage and clean the water.  It actually looks almost like our own Malaysian-grown 'lalang' or paddy.
This is how it looks like. (Pics from Google, most probably not in Malaysia)

Our expectation of seeing a typically complicated industrial effluent treatment site left us in awe as actually, reed bed looks just like 'sawah padi'.  Apparently, there are certain species of reed equipped with abilities to filter specific contaminants ( to the like of heavy metals …
