Panduan Menjadi Moderator


Time flies so fast, guess what, we're already in the second month of 2016! It is currently raining heavily outside, which I really love..hihi.  My internship term is approaching its end in a couple of months before departing back to the garden of knowledge, UTP. But, just let me enjoy the rest of my stay in Kerteh first ya : )

Alhamdulillah, I was given a chance to moderate a session with Ustazah Norhafizah Musa back in December. It is a parenting talk entitled "Super Ummi, Super Abi" held at Dewan Sri Intan, PMO. As much as the word 'parenting' entices your curiosity, I learned a lot from the speaker herself and also from the highly-attentive audiences.  InsyaAllah I'll share some notes in the upcoming posts, but first I'd like to jot down some important points taken from Dr. Maszlee Malik's book : Risalah Pemuda Muslim.

Panduan menjadi moderator (diambil dari Risalah Pemuda Muslim tulisan Dr. Maszlee Malik). Tips dari penulis memang banyak membantu, who knows, maybe I can moderate a session like Wacana Sinar in UTP? :D

1. Moderator bukan ahli panel tambahan

Bersikap tegas dalam menjaga masa, terus kepada isi, bersikap kritikal kepada jawapan yang dikongsikan dan tidak menadai-mandai menambah.

2. Jangan tunjuk pandai

Mesti pandai menyampuk dengan soalan pembunuh "killer" jika ahli panel telah tersasar ataupun hilang kawalan dengan cuba memesongkan fakta atau lari daripada soalan. 

3. Cakap apa yang penonton mahu tanya dan mahu dengar

- Jangan syok sendiri 
- Jangan menjadi pak turut dengan membaca bulat-bulat soalan yang diberikan tanpa mengira kesan kepada penonton.
- Moderator yang berintegriti akan mementingkan impak program kepada penonton
- Program sebagai medium untuk mendidik masyarakat 
- Buat homework mengenai tajuk forum dan isu berkaitan.

4. Jangan berpihak, tetapi bersikap kritikal dan sinikal terhadap semua pihak

Apa yang paling utama bagi para moderator, mereka perlu menjadi interlokutor atau investigator yang dapat mencungkil dari hati dan pemikiran ahli panel agar mereka dapat kongsikan bersama para penonton.  Moderator ialah pendidik!

5. Di atas pentas, moderator ialah raja

- Controlling audience adalah hak mutlak moderator.
- Bersikap tegas tetapi meraikan semua pihak terutamanya dalam menjaga masa.

6. Moderator ialah interlokutor 
Kemampuan mencungkil pemikiran dan hujah terpendam ahli panel adalah 'gift' utama seorang moderator untuk dipersembahkan kepada hadirin.

As a reflection, I can say that it is very crucial for us 'mahasiswa' to be able to organize more intellectual discourses, wherever we are. This is the avenue where we can get crystal-clear explanations and drill the panels with our 'killer' questions. These sessions will be our platform to educate the society and hopefully, bringing some senses back. 

We need more matured individuals in this country, so tag along, wake up and do whatever it takes to rejuvenate this Ummah!

"Seorang Mukmin yang bercampur bergaul dengan masyarakat dan sabar atas kepedihan dan kepayahan yang ditimbulkan oleh masyarakatnya, adalah lebih besar ganjarannya daripada Mukmin yang tidak bergaul dengan masyarakat dan tidak sabar atas kepedihan, kepayahan dan kejahatan masyarakatnya."

(Riwayat Al-Bukhari, Al- Tirmizi & Ahmad)

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 …
