Vuvuzela Haram???


United Arab Emirates issues fatwa against loud vuvuzelas after instruments imported during World Cup

The country issued a religious edict against the instrument if it exceeds 100 decibels, which is about the same noise level as a passing train. The loud, grating droning of vuvuzelas has annoyed us all during the World Cup in South Africa. But in the United Arab Emirates, they're more than just an annoyance -- they're unholy.
According to the National, a newspaper in Abu Dhabi, the ruling came after thousands of vuvuzelas were imported into the country for World Cup fans. Officials were worried that fans will start bringing the instruments to local soccer games.
The UAE's General Authority of Islamic Affairs and Endowments said they made the decision based off a study that said human hearing can be damaged if a person exposed to more than 100 decibels.
Officials have also said the blaring sound of the instruments overpowers the crowd's cheering, taking away from the atmosphere. They also said players were having difficulty hearing each other on the field.
Television stations have been inundated by viewer complaints about the continuous drone of the instruments during World Cup. They have tried to lower the instruments' noise with little success.
After realizing their popularity, Dhia el Din, an Abu Dhabi-based businessman initially ordered 10,000 vuvuzelas. He later cancelled his order as the instruments garnered negative press.
He also became alarmed when he discovered the instruments were used by African shamans and witchdoctors.
"I searched on the internet and found some articles regarding it," he said. "I found out that they were used to bring out devils."
haih!

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…

Leap of Faith

Bismillah,
Today I'm not going to talk about the leap of faith in Assassins Creed, which Cal (Michael Fassbender) attempted to save himself. 

Google defines leap of faith as 'an act of believing in or attempting something whose existence or outcome cannot be proved'. In other words, to make a big decision which may have a big impact on one's life, with no guarantee whether it'll end up a success or a failure. It can be choosing between furthering your study and become an academician or enter the industrial world, getting married or changing the stream of your study. Some decisions may have a bigger impact in our lives, compared to the others.


This has been one of the longest period which I've stayed at home since the last 5 years. With the flexibility and ample of time in hand, post-graduation has really got me thinking. Somehow the transition between university life to the next phase isn't as fast and smooth-sailing as I've imagined. It's not like tod…

What Shall We Do on Fridays?

Bismillah,
So, we have reached another Jumu'ah in 2017, we are getting closer and closer towards Ramadhan, the time has been flying faster than ever. Hopefully we can make everyday meaningful by being a productive and impactful Muslim, insyaAllah.
I'd like to share the inputs that I've learned (almost a year ago, now flipping the note pages) during an Ibrah Seminar on Surah Al-Jumu'ah by Ust. Syaari Abdul Rahman. Alhamdulillah, the seminar was very insighful, I attended this program with my beloved juniors Sakinah, Syera & Chad. We took a day-trip as Bangi and UTP is only a 2.5 hrs drive.
About Surah Al-Jumu'ah
- This is the 62nd surah in the Quran, consisting of 11 verses.  - It is positioned after Surah As-Saff and before Surah Al-Munafiqun. - A Madaniyah surah (meaning that this surah was reveled after the event of Hijrah - where Rasululullah saw and the sahabahs migrated from Mecca to Madinah).
What is Ibrah?
Ibrah is the lesson learnt that we can gain and emulate …
