words of al Hallaj


“ I saw my Lord with the eye of the heart

I asked, ‘Who are You?’

He replied, ‘You’. ”

words of Shams Tabrizi



“Don’t judge the way other people connect to God; to each his own way and his own prayer.


God does not take us at our word. He looks deep into our hearts. It is not the ceremonies or rituals that make a difference, but whether our hearts are sufficiently pure or not.”

will you still come

will you still come
to see me
now that
everything has
been said and done

will you still come
to see me
though maybe
you have nothing
to say

will you still come
to see me
just for
 the sake
of seeing me

will you still come
to see me
like how I love
to see you

will you

I S

I S
does the above refer to Islamic State? perhaps. that’s  what the world is saying. almost everyone who is not in their right frame of mind I guess.
anyway, I beg to differ. big time. why? because it is obviously plain to see that there’s nothing Islamic about this so called IS. firstly, Islam promotes love. Islam protects the weak, old people, women, children. Islam doesn’t advocate war just for the sake of showing strength and arrogance. and definitely Muslims don’t simply kill other people, be them muslims or otherwise.
so, tell me, which part of IS is Islam? tell me.

then, simply put, IS would better stand for International Satan. plain and simple. if they were to be religious bigots, the first countries they would attack definitely will be Israel and America. but do you hear of these two countries being bombarded, attacked, suicide bombers having a field day, synagogue or churches being bombed? no!! never ever. not that I am trying to instigate that these countries and all the places for religious activities be attacked, but unless you are so na├»ve, gullible, or so dumb, it is so obvious that this attack will never happen. what has happened is that muslim countries are being terrorized, especially so in Syria and Iraq. Muslims are being killed daily. massacred would be a better word. where’s the United Nation? Where’s the Arab League? Where’s the OIC? Where’s NATO? all these organizations are collaborators and instigators in the war that’s happening now in most Islamic countries, be they Sudan, Iraq, Syria or Palestine.

so, I’m asking again, which part of IS is Islam?                      

so sad to see there’s no more humanity in humans.
the people have turned to animals. worse than that, actually.

cekal berdiri

yang besar, dikecil          
yang kecil, besar.
memang kebenaran
sedang bertengkar.
 yang badutan kasar,
yang mangsa, sabar.
tapi keadilan pasti menggegar.

tangan terlindung
makin berkasar’
kali ke berapa
Guan Eng digempar?
tapi alam membentuk hemahnya,
dalam bahaya pun pedas lidahnya.

dirinya bersedia mati berdiri
daripada hidup melutut kaki.

Pelawak S'pura gelakkan PM di Malaysia



Perkembangan politik Malaysia turut menjadi bahan jenaka di Singapura.

Kali ini pelawak negara itu Fakkah Fuzz menggunakan isu semasa yang hangat diperkatakan di negara ini untuk menghiburkan penontonnya.

Satu klip video memaparkan aksi Fuzz kini tersebar luas di media sosial.

Melalui jenaka itu Fuzz bercerita tentang 'perbezaan' penggunaan bahasa orang Melayu Malaysia dan Singapura.

"Sebagai contoh, jika Melayu Malaysia mahu mengajak ke sesuatu tempat, mereka berkata: Jom.

"Tapi kalau Melayu Singapura mereka akan berkata: Jom! Jom! Jom!" katanya.

Fuzz kemudian meneruskan jenakanya lagi: "Apabila kita ada thief, di Singapura kita panggil pencuri. Di Malaysia mereka panggil perdana menteri. Jadi ia memang sangat berbeza."

Kenyataan itu disambut dengan gelak ketawa dan tepukan gemuruh daripada penonton.

d umrah moments

Alhamdulillah when I was presented with the chance to perform the umrah last December, I managed to do the umrah three times and tawaf sunat twice. I spent most of my other time iqtikaf at masjidil haram.
the first time my wife and I went to kaabah to perform our umrah, I was feeling nervous. I was afflicted with the sins I committed throughout my life, thus, I was afraid that Allah wouldn’t grant me the opportunity to see the kaabah. Alhamdulillah, when the mutawif brought us there, and when we first viewed the kaabah, both I and my wife, did the sujud syukur. How relieved I was that Allah had permitted me to see the kaabah, which was there right in front of me.
The first time we were there it was at around 11pm. As the time moved past midnite, the place was becoming more crowded with congregates form all over the world. Alhamdulillah, we managed to perform the rites for umrah by 2 am.
nevertheless, the third umrah stood out, in term of soul satisfaction. my wife couldn’t make it so I was alone. I took my time to do the tawaf and be engrossed in it. labaik Allah huma labaik. after tawaf was done, I did solat sunat tawaf and other sunat prayers plus the doa behind maqam Ibrahim. and that was the climax as I just couldn’t hold my tears. they were streaming down my cheeks during tawaf, but at maqam Ibrahim, there’s no word to actually explain the moment: the feeling, the submission, the bliss. I was drowning in my own tears, sobbing for more than 5 minutes that brought sensation to my eyes.
I had so much to say to Him that I felt ashamed in a way. after another solat sunat, I made my move to drink the zam zam and perform the saie. I did the saie with ease and in a serene mood. after tahallul, it was another bout of solat sunat before finally leaving for the hotel.
all in all, I know that this is not the best description of what really took place except what’s told is only the physical part whereas the spiritual awakening is something beyond words.
I thank Allah for this opportunity. to sum up, it was one of the best moments in my journey back to Him.
Alhamdulillah. Alhamdulillah. Alhamdulillah.

gua hira' - my version

gua hira' is situated on jabal nur.

gua hira’ is not really a cave in the sense that there’s a gap @ hole in  a hill. it is actually a space between a few boulders where the most, can sit only two persons. but if you were to pray, then it is meant only for a person.

right at the end of the so called gua, there is a narrow passage, facing directly towards kaabah. and gua hira’ is about 4 km away from d kaabah. but nowdays you can’t see the kaabah because of the concrete jungle. nevertheless, because of the clock tower, u know that the kaabah is directly right in front of you though it’s far away.

i wonder how khadijah brought food for the prophet, or how did they manage to climb jabal nur because this hill is unlike the hills we find back home. this hill is sheer rocks and boulders. 

the prophet is truly the chosen one. 

I was there last December ’15. Alhamdulillah.
