Allah Suka Orang Yang Bersungguh-sungguh

Setiap pekerjaan yang akan kita lakukan seharusnyalah kita kerjakan dengan sebaik mungkin. Dengan melakukan kewajipan dan pekerjaan kita dalam keadaan yang terbaik bukan saja peluang untuk kita dipilih sebagai pekerja terbaik malahan peluang untuk kita disokong untuk jawatan yang lebih baik adalah cerah. Nabi Muhammad Sallallahu 'Alaihi Wasallam dalam pernah bersabda ( hadith di atas): Sesungguhnya Allah suka salah seorang daripada kamu melakukan perkerjaan bersungguh-sungguh"

ENGLISH

We should do our job in the best way we can. By giving priority and best to our duties not only we will be acclaimed as a special worker we will also find lots of offers to move on. The prophet Muhammad Sallallahu 'Alaihi Wasallam said: "Allah likes you if anyone of you do a work to perfect it".

Demi Masa

Khat Thuluth Surah Al-Asr. Khat asal sebelum diberi 'nafas' Photoshop boleh dilihat pada posting aku sebelumnya 'Beat Indecision and You Beat the Clock'. Semoga kita sebagai umat Islam dapat memanfaatkan 'masa' dalam kehidupan kita dengan berlandaskan ajaran Al-Quran dan As-Sunnah. Untuk berjaya di dunia ini apatah lagi dapat kemenangan yang haqiqi di akhirat nanti kita seharusnya mengurus masa kita dengan bijak dengan melakukan amal ibadat yang di ridai Allah, meluangkan masa mempelajari dan memperdalami rahsia kandungan kitab Al-Quran dan As-Suunah dan dalam masa yang sama menghayati ajarannya dalam kehidupan kita di dunia yang hanya bersifat sementara.

Beat Indescision and you beat the clock

We often hear the popular saying or quote about time, 'time is gold'. In reality time is more than gold or any priceless things in this world. Islam guide mankind not only to the significance of time but also how people praise and invest the time. Allah the Almighty make this clear in the Qur'an when He says:

By (the Token of) Time (through the ages), Verily Man is in loss, Except such as have Faith, and do righteous deeds, and (join together) in the mutual teaching of Truth, and of Patience and Constancy. Qur'an (103:1-3)

In line with the above Qur'an direction we have to save time by spending it wisely, which really means investing it properly. Invest your time in bettering yourself mentally, physically and spiritually. As a muslim, we must be prompt in doing good deeds which will strengthen our iman or faith and following this enable us to gain Allah pleasure and mercy.

I often hear people constantly complaining, "I havent' just got the time." The truth is, you have enough time, if you know how to invest it. Goethe once said, "We always have time enough, if we will but use right." We are all definitely born equal. You don't have more time than I have, and nobody has less. In fact, no one can inherit time or keep it in a bank to gather interest. Wherever you go, an hour contains sixty minutes no matter who is spending it and even knowing the 'right' people cannot get you more than twenty-four hours per day.

On the Day of Judgment we shall be asked how we spent our lives, wealth and knowledge, that is, we will be questioned on how we spent everything that Allah has given us as narrated in the following Hadith:

Narrated Abdullah Bin Mas`ud Allah's Messenger (PBUH) said:

"A man shall be asked concerning five things on the day of resurrection: concerning his life, how he spent it; concerning his youth, how he grew old; concerning his wealth, whence he acquired it, and in what way he spent it; and what was it that he did with the knowledge that he had."

In other Hadith The Prophet Mohammad Sallallaahu 'Alaihi Wasallam , urged Muslims to take the initiative to do good deeds before any difficulty arise. For instance, he said, "Lose no time to do good deeds before you are caught up by one of seven calamities awaiting you: a starvation which may impair your wisdom; a prosperity which may mislead you; an ailment which may damage your health; an old age which may harm your senses; a sudden death; the Dajjal (Antichrist); or Doomsday, which is indeed the hardest and most bitter." (at-Tirmidhi, al-Baihaqi) For some strange reason, the busiest people have time for anything. There is an old saying that says: "If you want something done quickly, give it to a man who is too busy to do it. He'll find time for it." The reason is that a busy person can't afford to let the tasks mount up. In fact, if you accomplish one thing at a time, all the jobs are usually taken care of. The busy man has to learn to arrange and economize his time. To him, time is too expensive a commodity to handle waste fully. Organization is certainly essential in order to use time properly.

Be An Energetic Muslim

The word 'Islam' comes from the word 'Salama' which indicates peace as it does surrender to God. When a person submits to the will of Almighty God he will undergo an innate sense of peacefulness. If a person is emotionally disturbed he or she may find their mind inattentive from the real world. Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu 'Alaihi wasallam said that a strong believer was better than a weak believer. He was emphasizing in term of belief and personality but also pointing optimum health and fitness were desirable thus we must take care of our spiritual, emotional and physical health. Our bodies are given to us by Almighty God as a confidence and they should be maintained in good order including handling our bodies with respect, a simple diet and nourishing them with nutritious food. As diet and nutrition play a big part in keeping the best possible health so does a lifestyle including exercise. Fulfilling the duty of the daily performance of five prayers, fasting the month of Ramadhan and performing of the Haj requires that Muslims be of sound health and fitness. Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu 'Alaihi wasallam guides his followers to work, to be active and to start their day early, all of which are are prerequisite for a healthy body.

Happy Eidul Adha

This is my digital greeting card for 'Selamat Hari Raya Aidil Adha' or 'Fastival of Sacrifice' or locally known as 'Hari Raya Korban' But Hari Raya Korban is celebrated with much less fanfare then the 'Hari Raya Aidil Fitri' or 'Edul Mubarak' which marks the end of Ramadhan. Both Hari Raya Aidil Adha dan Hari Raya Aidil Fitri would begin with mass prayer except that Hari Raya Aidil Adha typically followed with sacrifices of cows and goats then the meats would be distributed to the poor and needy. The festival is celebrated by Muslim all over the world to commemorate the readiness of Prophet Ibrahim 'Alaihisalaam to sacrifice his son Prophet Ismail 'Alaihisalaam as an act of obedience to Allah. Aidil Adha falls on the 10th day of the month of Zulhijjah of the Lunar Islamic calender. The festives normally last for 3 days or more, it much depend on the country. Eid al-Adha occurs the day after the pilgrims conducting Hajj, the annual pilgrimage to Mecca in Saudi Arabia by Muslims worldwide, descend from Mount Arafat. It happens to be approximately 70 days after the end of the month of Ramadan.

Anjuran Berdoa

Balek kerja aku rehat sekejap sambil membaca buku "Senjata Rahsia Orang Mukmin" karangan Ustaz AB. Latif Muda. Aku baca bab bertajuk Tuntuan Berdoa Dan Kelebihannya. Di bahagian ini diselitkan petikan ayat suci Al-Quran yang bermaksud: "Dan Tuhan kamu berfirman: "Berdoalah kamu kepadaku nescaya aku perkenankan doa permohonan mu". Aku pun on komputer dan buatkan kaligrafi digital ayat tersebut. Alhamdulillah aku dapat selesaikan dalam masa kira-kira 1 jam lebih.

Pengodam Komputer Sudah Tahu Rahsia Facebook

Para peminat Facebook mestilah lebih berhati-hati untuk meluluskan permintaan sahabat baru menjadi teman anda di Facebook. Saya baru membaca satu post dari sebuah blog oleh Roger Thompson pengkaji bagi Syarikat Antivirus dan Sekuriti Internet AVG Technology. Beliau memperlihatkan beberapa imej bagaimana pegodam menemui cara mencipta halaman facebook untuk memperdaya pengguna dalam usaha menyebarkan spyware. Roger Thompson menjelaskan bahawa pengguna AVG's LinkScanner telah mula mengesan serangan spyware yang datangnya dari halaman Facebook. Apabila AVG memeriksa halaman berkenaan, ia mendapati bahawa profile Facebook menonjolkan beberapa gambar wanita yang sama tetapi memiliki nama yang berlainan untuk membezakan profile berkenaan. Setiap halaman mempunyai pautan kepada sesuatu yang disangka sebagai 'video' yang akan menjangkitkan komputer pengguna dengan spyware jika diklik. Serangan spyware kepada Facebook seiiring dengan peringatan FBI yang menjelaskan bertambahnya penjenayah siber yang memanfaatkan laman social networking untuk melancarkan serangan seperti menggunakan Facebook. Antara teknik yang popular digunakan oleh pengodam ialah menyamun akaun pengguna dan mengirim spam kepada mangsa yang kemudiannya mengarahkan mangsa pergi ke laman phishing dan menggunakan program malware dan antivirus untuk mengakses maklumat peribadi mangsa yang terdapat diprofil. Sila layari laman berikut untuk melihat muslihat pengodam.

Hilangkan Keupayaan AutoRun CD

AutoRun CD boleh kita ibaratkan pisau, pisau boleh digunakan untuk memotong daging atau membunuh. Maksudnya disini AutoRun CD kadang-kadang ada menfaat juga ada bahaya. Pengodam boleh menjangkitkan komputer dengan trojan menggunakan CD dengan hanya memprogram autorun.inf untuk menghidupkan trojan apabila CD berkenaan berada di dalam status autoplay (arahan memainkan CD secara automatik). Disamping masalah sekuriti, autorun boleh menyebabkan gangguan kepada komputer. Pernahkah anda menghadapi masalah dimana apabila anda memuatkan CD yang telah lama atau CD yang agak rosak sedikit, kandungan CD dibaca dan autorun diproses mengambil masa yang terlalu lama sehingga komputer anda freez (tersekat) dan tambah menyusahkan lagi, anda tidak boleh berbuat apa-apa melainkan setelah anda secara manual mengeluarkan CD berkenaan. Ada satu trick untuk mencegah berlakunya autorun apabila CD dimasukkan ke dalam komputer. Tekan butang SHIFT beberapa ketika apabila anda memuatkan CD kedalam komputer. Dengan cara yang sedemikian anda boleh mencegah CD dimainkan secara automatik apabila dimasukkan ke dalam pemacu CD.

Apakah dia UBuntu?

Ok, :) Kali ini saya mencuba untuk mengongsi apa yang saya faham dengan sistem operasi UBuntu. Apakah sebenarnya UBuntu? Kalau dalam bahasa Brunei perkataan 'Buntu ' bermakna 'busuk' misalnya dalam ayat "eh buntu sudah daging ah, maksudnya daging itu sudah busuk (berbau tidak sedap). Dalam Kamus Dewan, buntu itu ialah mati misalnya jalan buntu, fikiran buntu dan adalagi satu iaitu usus buntu (usus yang tersekat hujungnya). Dalam konteks sistem pengendalian (operating system)UBuntu, ia bermaksud satu komuniti atau kumpulan orang-orang yang membangun satu sistem pengoperasian yang lengkap untuk keperluan laptop, desktop dan server tidak kira sama ada anda akan menggunakanya di rumah, sekolah atau di tempat kerja, UBuntu memiliki apa saja keperluan yang anda perlukan dari aplikasi pemproses perkataan, email , server pelayan hinggalah keperluan untuk alat pengaturcaraan. Anda tidak perlu membayar sebarang kos untuk memakai UBuntu dan tidak perlu membayar sebarang lesen (licensing fee), anda boleh memuat turun, berkongsi UBuntu dengan rakan-rakan, keluarga, di sekolah dan tempat perniagaan dengan percuma. Pembina UBuntu mempastikan bahawa mereka akan sentiasa mengemaskinikan UBuntu setiap enam bulan sekali, ini bermaksud anda akan sentiasa memiliki secara percuma sistem operasi UBuntu yang terkini. UBuntu dibena dengan mengutamakan ciri-ciri keselamatan, di dalam laman web ini, komuniti UBuntu menegaskan bahawa sekurang-kurangnya pengguna UBuntu akan memperolehi pengemaskinian sekuriti setiap 18 bulan sekali untuk sistem pengoperasian desktop dan pelayan web. Segala keperluan untuk memasang sistem operasi UBuntu lengkap disediakan dalam sebuah CD yang dapat memenuhi keperluan persekitaran kerja manakala perisian tambahan boleh didapati di dalam talian. Proses installasi UBuntu berasaskan antara muka bergrafik membolehkan anda menginstal UBuntu dengan mudah dan cepat. Standart installasi hanya mengambil masa kurang dari 25 minit. Apabila semuanya sudah dipasang sistem pengoperasian UBuntu tersedia untuk digunakan. Untuk maklumat lanjut mengenai pemasangan dan lain-lain hal yang berkaitan dengan UBuntu anda boleh melayari blog ini Informasi disediakan dalam bahasa melayu. Wassalam.

BerICT & Berilmu

Jika kita memiliki Ilmu, adalah lebih baik ilmu itu kita amalkan atau ajarkan kepada orang supaya panjang amalan kita, tentulah ilmu yang dimaksudkan itu ialah ilmu yang bermanfaat. Yah ..knowledge is good if it is shared...kalau kita berilmu kita tak share..akhirnya ia akan berkubur dengan kita, tak adalah orang yang merwarisinya..tinggallah ilmu yang dulunya 10 menjadi 9 atau 8 kerana ilmu yang ke-10 tidak boleh diajarkan takut-takut nanti murid lawan taukeh. Sedikit masa lagi di blog ini saya akan mengongsikan informasi tentang perkomputeran yang mudah dipelajari yang berupa tip dan petua berkomputer, misalnya kalau kita tidak mampu membeli antivirus komersial apa langkah yang patut kita buat untuk untuk mendapat antivirus secara percuma. Bukanlah niat kita mengajar anda mencuri atau menghack..itu dah menyalahi peraturan hidup beragama. Kalau anda tersalah delete program atau data dikomputer bagaimana untuk mendapatkannya semula? tentu menarik..Inilah yang kita maksudkan berICT dan berilmu. Ini bukan iklan e-book, bukan COBAAAAAN..ini yang benaraaan.. Insya Allah kita akan terangkan nanti bagaimana caranya.

Jangan Marah Nanti Kena Jual

in

I am a big fan of P. Ramlee, his black and white movies especially his comedies, you may agree or you may not if I say there are some moral teaching in them. I like to explore every detail of his movies that I could think of, taking into account dialog, imagery, action, music etc. In one of his comedy 'Tiga Abdul" there is a catch-phrase "Jangan marah nanti kena jual", a written contract between 3 Abdul and Sadiqsigaraga that they must retain their anger. What is the message of this simple phrase? What happen to those who easily give way to anger? Anger gives one non-rational thinking thus in a moment of heat people say things that they don't really mean, make their blood boil which kill the light of iman and anger is one of the doors which syaitan enters the heart and iman leaves. In The Art of War written by Shun Zhu in the 6th century BC, one of the rules is simply to anger your opponent and you will have advantage over him because he will make an irrational move in anger and thus you can win. This is what Shaitan does to us, only wise man keeps himself under control but manipulators can take advantage of this situation because some people are going to encourage you to be rude when you are angry. Remember: Anger arises hatred, hatred arises envy, envy arises malice, malice arises worry, worry arises depression and depression arises black magic! Now note the danger an angry intention: The killer and killed are the same in the fire! Why the victim is also in the hell? Because both had intention to kill.

Zikr Beads

Zikr beads, also known as 'Misbaha', these are typically beads upon a string, 99 or 100 in number which correlate with Names of Allah in the Al-Quran or other recitation. The beads are used to keep track of the number of repetitive utterances that makes up the zikr. Some Islamic scholars argue that using the beads are forbidden. However many claim that to use the fingers to count is better as that is what practised by the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). Zikr beads are most commonly made of various stones or wooden beads but also of olive seeds, ivory, amber, pearls or plastic. Beside 99 beads, zikr beads also consist of the 'nisane', a disc which separates each 33 beads.

3rd verse of Surah Al-Qadr

The Night of Al-Qadr is better than a thousand months. Aside form the fact that worship during the night of Al-Qadr is equivalent to worship performed for a period of one thousand month, it is also confirm in the two Sahihs from Abu Hurairah that the messenger of Allah said: Whoever stand in prayer ( during the Night of Al-Qadr) with faith and execting reward (from Allah) he will be forgiven for his previous sin (Fathul Bari: 294 and Muslim 125:3) Coming up in the next post: the 4th verse of Surah Al-Qadr

Monday, October 5, 2009

2nd Verse of Surah Al-Qadr

And what make you know what the night of Qadr is?

Imam Ahmad recorded that Abu Hurairah said: "When Ramadhan would come the Messenger of Allah would says: "Verily the month of Ramadhan has come to you all. It is a blessed month. Which Allah obligated you all to fast. During it the gates of Paradise is open. The gates of Hell are closed and the devils are shackled. In it there is a night that better than a thousand month. Whoever is deprived of its good, the he is truly been deprived." Tafsir Ibnu Kathir Coming up in the next post: the 3rd verse of surah Al-Qadr...

A Pure Hypocrite

Narrated Abdullah bin 'Amr The Prophet Muhammad Salallahu 'Alaihi Wasallam said: Whoever has the following four (characteristics) will be a pure hypocrite and whoever has one of the following four characteristics will have one characteristic of hypocrisy unless and until he gives it up: 1. Whenever he is entrusted he betrays 2. Whenever he speaks he tells a lie 3. Whenever he makes a covenant he proves treacherous 4. Whenever he quarrels he behaves in a very imprudent, evil and insulting manner During a lifetime of the Prophet Muhammad, the Munafiqen (hypocrites) did the worse damage. Munafiqen rose up in rebellion against Sayidina Uthman ibnu 'Affan and martyred him. TANDA-TANDA KEMUNAFIKAN Hadith Abdullah bin Amru r. a katanya: Rasululah Salallahu 'Alaihi Wasallam pernah bersabda: Ada empat perkara jika sesiapa yang mempunyai empar perkara tersebut, maka dia merupakan orang munafik: Sesiapa yang bersifat dengan salah satu daripadanya bererti dia bersifat munafik, sehinggalah dia meninggalkannya iaitu: 1. Apabila bercakap dia berdusta 2. Apabila dia membuat persetujuan dia mengkhianati 3. Apabila berjanji dia menyalahi 4. Apabila berlaku perkelahian dia melampaui batas (Riwayat Muslim)

We are accountable for their success

This is the second time I use this image for my blog. In my previous post using the same image I have breifly mentioned about Kufi style of Arabic calligraphy . But this time I would like to say a few words about the Arabic phrase in the above image. It is just one of the Quranic verse from Surah Al-Kahfi that is interpreted as "Your riches and your children may be but a trial" (Qur'an 64:15)
Every faithful muslim, man or woman keeps going to be tested in person, posessions and children in order he or she to meet Allah clear of sin. The forbearance we endure for all strain in this life dictate the reward and forgiveness we will receive in the day of Resurrection.
Since our children are but a trial it is then our duty to instill our children to Islam. It is only through Islam that they can become good and be of service to Allah. It means that we pass Allah's trial when our children worship and please our creator. Remember that the best things that we can give to our children is knowledge of Islam based on the Quran and Sunnah. Bear in mind that we learn authentic knowledge of Islam not only for our own success but to be able to share the knowledge with others, especially to our children since as parent we are accountable to their success and failure.

Brief Info on Arabic Calligraphy

Arabic calligraphy is an authentic Islamic and Arabic art. It is intelligible, the significant component of the Arabic inheritance because it is the spring wherein all Arab tradition, over subsequent generation, are mingling to develop such everlasting cultural heritage. At the beginning Arabic letters had no dots, but during the Abbasside era dots and punctuations marks were developed. Calligraphy materials take the form of boards, stones, pottery and leather but towards the end of Omiade State 133H and early in the Abbasside State dramatic change was made in calligraphy stuff when Arab found the technique of making papers in Samarkand, Central Asia. AlFostat the first Islamic and Egyptian city was famous as one calligraphy progressing center. Ibn Tollon mosque harbors distinctive models of tremendous masterpieces.

Menahan Kemarahan

Nabi Muhammad SAW bersabda: Orang yang kuat bukan orang yang dapat menumbangkan lawan ,tetapi orang yang dapat mengawal diri ketika marah. He is not strong and powerful, who throws people down, but he is strong who withholds himself from anger.

Seninet's Characters

These are characters used in my previous 'Our Kids Our Future' poster.

Our Kids Our Future

Raising children is the most important job in any community, kids are our future generation and parents effect their youngsters progress. Children are born in a state of purity and then their parents teach them to be believers and unbelievers. The most effective way to teach anything to anybody is to be a role model. This is the reason Allah send prophets to all peoples. Every time we deal with our children, in fact, we are educating them, whether we decide to or not. There is a famous poem that portray this clearly, If a child lives with criticism, he learns to condemn If a child lives with hostility, he learns to fight If a child lives with redicule, he learns to be shy For that reason we must appraise carefully how we cope with our children so as to have a sought-after end result. Let continue the poem: If a child lives with tolerence, he learn to be patience If a child lives with fairness, he learns justice If a child lives with security, he learns to have faith. The above poems signifies unfavourable remarks and behaviours lead to unfavourable characteristics in our youngster and favourable remarks and behaviour culminate in approving results
