Sebesar Manakah Jiwa Kita?

Berada di usia awal dua puluhan dan bergerak dalam organisasi, antara ayat cliche yang selalu didengari ialah " kamu mestilah berjiwa besar".

Cliche, kah?
Well, bergelumang dalam dunia engineering, everything must be specific, exact and measurable. 
Jadi bagaimana caranya ingin mengukur jiwa besar?
Apa kriterianya?
Apa aspek yang mesti dipenuhi untuk memastikan bahawa jiwa kita ini jiwa yang besar?

Alhamdulillah, in our recent usrah with regards of Fiqh Al-Ikhtilaf (Fiqh of Difference in Opinion), it downs to my sense that somehow to get a 'big heart' it relates a lot with accepting differences and appreciating similarities. Sometimes, you might need to sacrifice your emotions in order to prevent a bigger gap or misunderstanding, senang cakap nak elakkan perbalahan (dalam dialek Terengganu : gocoh). 

Fiqh Al-Ikhtilaf merupakan salah satu fiqh daripada 5 fiqh yang utama:
a. Fiqh Al-Maqasid (sasaran), membahas tentang sasaran syariat dalam segala aspek kehidupan.
b. Fiqh Awlawiyat - prioritization (keutamaan), how to put the right thing at the right place, what, when and how.
c. Fiqh As-Sunnah
d. Fiqh al-Muwazanat
bagaimana memilih antara kebaikan, kemaslahatan dan kemudaratan (mafsadah)
e. Fiqh Al-Ikhtilaf

Hidup dalam masyarakat yang pelbagai, perbezaan pendapat boleh dikatakan tidak mampu dielakkan. Kita ini manusia , bukannya robot yang sepemikiran. Perbezaan pendapat ini secara amnya berkisar dari 2 faktor iaitu akhlak dan pemikiran. I would really suggest for you to read up Fiqh Al-Ikhtilaf by Syeikh Yusuf Al-Qardhawi. Terutamanya adik-adik UTP, buku Syeikh Yusuf Al-Qardhawi sangat mudah didapati di MySyabab & Ikhwan Abadi. Jadi, gunakan peluang ini selagi boleh!

Somehow, in this very diversed and multiracial country, our different background, race and the way we were brought up created a very lively and colourful society. Just imagine, how beautiful is that!

In order to create a common ground where both sides can understand and accept each other, there are a few key points from this book that I'd like to share it here. You can get the detailed version from the book, well , just Google or buy one :)

1) Have a common goal

Kesatuan fikiran dan kesatuan amal tersangatlah penting dalam usaha kita mengejar redha Allah. Tiada apa yang lebih bahaya berbanding perpecahan.

2) Know your stand

Sama ada perbezaan kita itu dalam perkara pokok atau cabang? Sekiranya kita bertelagah atas perkara ranting, sedarlah bahawa masih banyak perkara yang lebih penting untuk diletakkan sebagai prioriti. Berprinsip itu perlu dan sedialah untuk setia dengan kebenaran. Benar tetap benar dan salah tetap salah. 

3) Take the middle road (wasatiyyah)
Cuba untuk bersifat sederhana dan elakkan dari membesar-besarkan perkara kecil. It's not worth to jeopardize our unity for a small difference in opinion.

4) Tadhiyyah (sacrifice)

Pasang mindset untuk terbuka dalam menerima pendapat, dan berani untuk mengorbankan emosi & ego demi mengelakkan perpecahan. Kadang kala, diam itu lebih baik. 

5) Sedar bahawa masalah Ummah itu lebih besar daripada masalah kita.
Sedang kita kita enak berbalah di Malaysia, 
ratusan ribu ditembak Bashar Assad di Syria, 
Ribuan mati kelaparan di Somalia, 
Letusan dan letupan kedengaran di Gaza, 
Patani terus-terusan bergolak,
dan Malaysia terus 'sakit' dengan zina, dadah dan jenayah

Is it worth your time to quarrel?
Move on!
It's time for action, the Ummah is bleeding!

Simply saying, we can now see to what extent it goes in explaining the concept of a 'big heart'. Sometimes we are just too absorbed with ourselves that we forget about the others. Open up your hearts and minds, then you'll see how short the time that we have compared to the distressing reality of our Ummah. Just think about it.

I'd like to end this post with a poem by Suhail Wan Azahar.

"Akhi, ana ada masalah hati"
Iya akhi. Tapi di luar sana ramai yang hampir mati. Ada juga yang sudah lama tidak menjamah Nasi. Anak-anak kecil kebulur dan sepi menyendiri walaupun ditengah-tengah rimbunan manusiawi. Macam mana ni akhi?
"Akhi, ana ada masalah hati"

Iya akhi. Negara kita dilanda musibah kerana korupsi. Matawang jatuh lagi. Harga barang usah dicerita, melambung tinggi.Nak beli Maggi pun pikir dua kali. Nuh di Jordan, sahabat-sahabat terpaksa meraih simpati demi kelangsungan diri. Macam mana ni akhi?
"Akhi, ana ada masalah hati"
Iya akhi. Bocah-bocah kecil di ceruk kampung tak mengaji. Nak buat macam mana, duit pun tiada nak sara diri. Keperluan asas pun tak cukup lagi walaupun sudah kita bakal menyambut Merdeka kali ke -58 nanti. Air , makanan, jalan raya, infrastruktur asas dan api (elektrik). Macam mana ni akhi?
"Akhi, ana ada masalah hati"
Ya akhi. Kita sekarang bergaduh siapa lebih Sunni. Sibuk melabel "kau wahabi". Perkara khilafi kita perjuang sampai sanggunp ber-takfiri. Macam mana ni akhi.
"Akhi, ana ada masalah hati"
Ya akhi. Di universiti, sahabat ana, Hanif dan Afiqah Zulkifli, digantung dua sem kerana anjur wacana GST. Pesta maksiat, kes buang anak, sindiket pelacuran siswi, dipandang sepi. Universiti sudah hilang nilainya yang tersendiri. Macam mana ni akhi?
"Akhi, ana minta undur diri"
Akhi, ana pun ada masalah hati. Tapi beza ana dan akhi, ana tidak berdiam diri. Cari solusi dalam aksi.
-Allah tidak akan mengubah sesuatu kaum itu sehingga kaum itu sendiri yang mengubahnya-

Reflections from Akademi Dakwah Muslimah

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

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?

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 …
