Seasonal Muslims

Salam Readers and Followers, sit down and relax. I’ve got something to share with you to flash back and reflect. Lets do some muhasabah together. It relates to our daily actions and behavior. Did we really act as a true Muslims? Where the Prophets s.a.w has shown and guide us, the perfect example for us to behave well.

Muslim are not seasonal thing, being muslim means full time

All ur actions will b recorded and u have to answer to Allah 1 day

Paradise is expensive, there is no free ticket to Jannah bro!

So please dont limit urself for being a 'Ramadon' Muslims

If u lose Allah swt, u lose everything

So lets not be muslims part time, lets be muslims full time.

May Allah forgive us and increase our iman.

and speak to myself before i speak to those who are watching.

Jazakallahukhair - BE MUSLIMS -

This tag reminds me of the verse that we always read in our prayer;

“Say. Surely my prayer and my sacrifice and my life and my death are (all) for Allah, the Lord of the worlds” (Al-Anaam: 162)

It inspires me a lot to practice my faith vigorously which will eventually hearten my life. Those who practice Islam are a super model and a pillar of stability for all societies. And I wanna be one. InshaAllah…Do pray for me too.

Faith in God

An Atheist Professor of Philosophy speaks to his class on the problem Science has with GOD, the ALMIGHTY. He asks one of his New Muslim Students to stand up. Then, they both had a long conservation.

Professor: You are a Muslim, aren’t you, son?

Student: Yes, sir.

Professor: So you believe in GOD?

Student: Absolutely, sir.

Professor: Is GOD Good?

Student: Sure

Professor: Is GOD powerful?

Student: Yes

Professor: My Brother died of Cancer even though he prayed to GOD to heal him. Most of us would attempt to help others who are ill. But GOD didn’t. How is this GOD good then? Hmm?

( Student is silent )

Professor: You can’t answer, can you? Let’s start again, Young Fella. Is GOD Good?

Student: Yes

Professor: Is Satan good?

Student: No

Professor: Where does Satan come from?

Student: From . . . GOD . . .

Professor: That’s right. Tell me son, is there evil in this World?

Student: Yes

Professor: Evil is everywhere, isn’t it? And GOD did make everything. Correct?

Student: Yes

Professor: So who created evil?

(Student does not answer)

Professor: Is there Sickness? Immorality? Hatred? Ugliness? All these terrible things exist in the World, don’t they?

Student: Yes, sir.

Professor: So, who Created them?

( Student has no answer )

Professor: Science says you have 5 Senses you use to Identify and Observe the World around you. Tell me, son . . . Have you ever Seen GOD?

Student: No, sir.

Professor: Tell us if you have ever Heard your GOD?

Student: No, sir.

Professor: Have you ever Felt your GOD, Tasted your GOD, Smelt your GOD? Have you ever had any Sensory Perception of GOD for that matter?

Student: No, sir. I’m afraid I haven’t.

Professor: Yet you still believe in HIM?

Student: Yes

Professor: According to Empirical, Testable, Demonstrable Protocol, Science says your GOD doesn’t exist. What do you say to that, son?

Student: Nothing. I only have my Faith.

Professor: Yes, Faith. And that is the Problem Science has.

Student: Professor, is there such a thing as Heat?

Professor: Yes

Student: And is there such a thing as Cold?

Professor: Yes

Student: No sir. There isn’t.

( The Lecture Theatre becomes very quiet with this turn of events )

Student: Sir, you can have Lots of Heat, even More Heat, Superheat, Mega Heat, White Heat, a Little Heat or No Heat… But we don’t have anything called Cold. We can hit 458 Degrees below Zero which is No Heat, but we can’t go any further after that. There is no such thing as Cold. Cold is only a Word we use to describe the Absence of Heat. We cannot Measure Cold. Heat is Energy. Cold is Not the Opposite of Heat, sir, just the Absence of it.

( There is Pin – Drop Silence in the Lecture Theatre )

Student : What about Darkness, Professor? Is there such a thing as Darkness?

Professor: Yes. What is Night if there isn’t Darkness?

Student: You’re wrong again, sir. Darkness is the Absence of Something. You can have Low Light, Normal Light, Bright Light, Flashing Light... But if you have No Light constantly, you have nothing and its called Darkness, isn’t it? In reality, Darkness isn’t. If it is, were you would be able to make Darkness Darker, wouldn’t you?

Professor: So what is the point you are making, Young Man?

Student: Sir, my point is your Philosophical Premise is flawed.

Professor: Flawed? Can you explain how?

Student: Sir, you are working on the Premise of Duality. You argue there is Life and then there is Death, a Good GOD and a Bad GOD. You are viewing the Concept of GOD as something finite, something we can measure. Sir, Science can’t even explain a Thought. It uses Electricity and Magnetism, but has never seen, much less fully understood either one. To view Death as the Opposite of Life is to be ignorant of the fact that Death cannot exist as a Substantive Thing. Death is Not the Opposite of Life: just the Absence of it. Now tell me, Professor, do you teach your Students that they evolved from a Monkey?

Professor: If you are referring to the Natural Evolutionary Process, yes, of course, I do.

Student: Have you ever observed Evolution with your own eyes, sir?

( The Professor shakes his head with a Smile, beginning to realize where the Argument is going )

Student: Since no one has ever observed the Process of Evolution at work and Cannot even prove that this Process is an On – Going Endeavor, Are you not teaching your Opinion, sir? Are you not a Scientist but a Preacher?

( The Class is in Uproar )

Student: Is there anyone in the Class who has ever seen the Professor’s Brain?

( The Class breaks out into Laughter )

Student: Is there anyone here who has ever heard the Professor’s Brain, Felt it, touched or Smelt it?... No one appears to have done so. So, according to the Established Rules of Empirical, Stable, Demonstrable Protocol, Science says that you have No Brain, sir. With all due respect, sir, how do we then Trust your Lectures, sir?

(The Room is Silent. The Professor stares at the Student, his face unfathomable)

Professor: I guess you’ll have to take them on Faith, son.

Student: That is it sir . . . The Link between Man & GOD is FAITH. That is all that Keeps Things Moving & Alive.

Yesterday, I read an article about Sisters in Islam (SIS). It had become a hot topic these days since most of their actions are simply based on philosophy and contradict to syariah. Salbiah Ahmad, the ex-founder of this organization said that one of the reasons she quit SIS is because she was forced to open her hijab. The SIS’s members claimed that they don’t want people to say that they are ‘tudung type’, not progressive, fundamentalist and obscurantist (opposed to new ideas). Due to these reasons, they’re not allowed to wear hijab. How dare you SIS putting Allah's laws aside? Who are you to challenge Allah? All of the Muslims actions should be parallel with the teachings of Islam. It shouldn’t merely based on our thinking that always influents by obsess of this world and its affairs.

Oh ya...another thing, Islam is being discussed regularly nowadays on all major media stations. It is our responsibility to correct the misconception someone has about Islam and be a guardian of our Deen! If we’ve always wanted to be a Da’iyah (to invite people to the Truth) but felt like we don’t have much time, then we'd better take a fresh look at da’wah again! Anywhere and at anytime is an opportunity for da'wah. Even at our home can make as a Da’wah hub! Believe me!

Hang on to Faith! Fight for Iman!
With regards, Safi ArRahman

Life and Death

“What is the life of this world but play and amusement? But best is the home in the hereafter, for those who are righteous. Will ye not then understand?”
(Holy Qur’an Al An'aam, 6:32)

Once a man saw in his dream, that a LION was chasing him! The man ran to a Tree, climbed on to it and sat on a branch. He looked down and saw that the Lion was still there waiting for him.

The man then looked to his side where the branch he was sitting on was attached to the Tree and saw that two RATS were circling around and eating the branch. One Rat was black and the other one was white. The branch would fall on the ground very soon.

The man then looked below again with fear and discovered that a big black SNAKE had come and settled directly under him. The Snake opened its mouth right under the man so that he will fall into it.

The man then looked up to see if there was anything that he could hold on to. He saw another branch with a HONEYCOMB. Drops of honey were falling from it. The man wanted to taste one of the drops. So, he put his tongue out and tasted one of the fallen drops of HONEY. The Honey was amazing in taste. So, he wanted to taste another drop. As he did, he got lost into the
sweetness of the Honey.

Meanwhile, he forgot about the two Rats eating his branch away, the Lion on the ground and the Snake that is sitting right under him. After a while, he woke up from his sleep. To get the meaning behind this dream, the man went to a pious scholar of Islam.

The scholar said:

The Lion you saw is your DEATH. It always chases you and goes wherever you go.

The two Rats, one black and one white, are the NIGHT and the DAY. Black one is the night and the white one is the day. They circle around, coming one after another, to eat your time as they take you closer to Death.

The big black Snake with a dark mouth is your GRAVE. It’s there, just waiting for you to fall into it.

The Honeycomb is this WORLD and the sweet Honey is the LUXURIES of this world. We like to taste a drop of the luxuries of this world but it’s very sweet. Then we taste another drop and yet another.

Meanwhile, we get lost into it and we forget about our time, we forget about our death and we forget about our graves.

Imam Ali (pbuh) says: “You are the game that death hunts. If you stand still it will seize (catch) you. If you ran (flee) away it will overtake you.”

This picture is the latest version where i took it last week during my visit to my grandma’s and great grandma's graveyard. Last year during Eidul Fitri it wasn't like this crowded and packed. My grandma and grandpa passed away when I was in UK. At that moment my siblings and I were not allowed to see them due to lack of budget and money. So my dad returned to his hometown by himself using his scholarship pocket money to buy the ticket.

At that time, I wish immensely to see him and to say a final goodbye. But it doesn’t matter now. From then on, I use my pen name as Safi ArRahman where Ar-Rahman (a short name of Abdul Rahman) refers to my grandpa’s name. A name should mean something to the holder. Al-Fatihah to my late granpa. May he be rested among those who believe.

No Way Out

Assalamualaikum wbt

Bismillahirrahmanirrahim. Alhamdulillah I’m back, after my long journey heading to north and back to south. From JB – Bangi – Gombak – Puchong – Permatang Bogak – Alor Setar – Beseri Perlis – Puchong – and JB back. I arrived home yesterday but too tired to write and post. This couple of days has been a difficult days for me. I have had to deal with the internal turmoil of knowing that Allah's promise is true and knowing how to apply this to my life. Lately, after the news of Ummi Halimaton’s death I received the same news but different people.

Fatimah Safiah's brother, Shaari bin Zakaria (1985 - 10 June 2009)
Muhammad Ammar Zulkifli (1988 - 10 June 2009)
Sheikh Dr. Fathi Yakan (9 February 1933 – 13 June 2009)

I barely knew them. I have met Shaari once (people call him Dik Ah) when I went to Fatimah’s house. That was a long time ago but still I would always keep in touch with her family. Her brother had involved in motor accident resulting injuries on his head and face, broken his right arm and right leg. He was in critical condition when he was admitted to hospital. Al-Fatihah buat mereka. Semoga roh Allahyarham Shaari, Ammar and Dr.Fathi Yakan ditempatkan di kalangan para solihin dan siddiqin.

Little did I know, these 3 people were a cornerstone to the people around them especially Dr. Fathi Yakan. His shell lies dead, but his soul lives on. He had contributed a lot of his work for the sake of Islam. He has authored more than 35 books, some of which were translated into many languages. The Holy Prophet (saw) has said, “Whenever Allah (SWT) takes away the soul of any scholar of this nation, there becomes a gap in Islam that cannot be filled in till the Day of Judgement”.

DEATH IS A BEAUTIFUL GIFT FOR A BELIEVER. A believer always remembers death, since his or her main goal is to reach Allah. Qasim, the son of Imam Hasan Al-Mujtaba (pbuh), when asked concerning death at Karbala, answered: "Death to me is sweeter than honey." Therefore true believers anticipate death since to them it signifies the long-awaited meeting with their Creator.

During imprisonment, Imam Ali An-Naqi, Al-Hadi (pbuh) had a grave dug up ready by the side of his prayer mat. Some visitors expressed concern or surprise. The Imam explained, "In order to remember my end I keep the grave before my eyes."

DEATH IS ONCE. LIFE IS TWICE. All men die, and surely Allah give them life with His ability, and judges them on their deeds and actions. We know Allah is the Creator and can recreate us, because if one can do something he has the ability to do it again. For instance, if your teacher asks you to draw a picture on the blackboard and color it. Then if after you have drawn it with beautiful colors, the teacher asks you to rub it out and do it again, could you repeat the same drawing again? Of course you would be able to repeat the picture. It is what you created and are capable of doing again.

From this example, we can understand Allah is able to give life to the dead because it is He Who created us in the beginning. On Resurrection Day He will re-create the dead for judgment, and then allow the doer of good to enter paradise but cast the evil-doer into hell.

Wherever you are, death will find you out, even if you are towers built up strong and high. (Holy Quran 4:78)
NO WAY OUT. It states here that everyone one of us is to die even if we hide ourselves anywhere in the world; or even if we try to protect ourselves. This is the fact that death is unstoppable: there is No Way Out. No one can escape this fate. When death comes, we will realize, with terror in our hearts, how wrong we had been about things in this world. It will come and that will be the time when we have to leave everything and everyone behind to return to our Creator. Everyone is in the world as a guest, and his money is but a loan. The guest must go sooner or later and the loan must be returned. For sure the time will come.

EVERYTHING THAT HAS A BEGINNING HAS AN END. I close my eyes and think of my sins that I have committed. Suddenly my eyes are flooded with tears. The day will come when I shall have to answer for everything I have done. Am I really prepared? And when is my turn? Wallahualam.

I just can't believe
maybe can't conceive
that God knows the very second
when my soul will come out of my body
And the news will shock everybody

So am I ready for the test?
The Most important final test?
But how can I pass
when I knew all the While
that when I didn't prepare
for a test in school
I got a letter in my mail
a lousy F for Fail
Exactly what I was expecting

Don't take God for granted
Yes, He is Merciful
His Punishment is also Painful


I turn to Allah asking for His forgiveness. Ya Allah! Make me not from those upon you have sent your wrath. Ya Allah, when I return to You, let it be with Imaan and and please don’t let me go astray. Aminnn.

Oh My Fingers!

As usual it was raining outside
The blessed water from Allah, falling far and wide
I spent my time in my room on my computer
As usual I e-mailed to my sister.
Suddenly, there's pain on my fingers, Yikes!
The pain won't stop, it just continues and strikes!
I looked at my fingers, what did I see?
WORMS crawling, eating, biting looking squirmy
tearing away the flesh that I adore
My fingers are pretty no more.

Oh no! I quickly jumped from my seat
The worms take my fingers for meat!
I shook my arms, but the the worms ate away,
Biting, tearing my flesh and determined to stay.

"Allah! What did I do wrong?
Why are the worms so strong?"
Then an inner voice said to me
"O Muslim, this is your tragedy.
You wasted your fingers on deeds sinfully.

Was it not you who sent the fake e-mail?
You spread rumours and forwarded tall tales.
Your fingers typed in insults towards our Muslim scholars.
You hurt their feelings and harassed the others.

You designed a web page to insult Islam.
Your fitnah are worse than drinking rum!
You even flirted with the opposite sex on cyberspace
You even used seductive words and dirty phrases!
Instead of having meaningful discussions
You come in all ready for sensations.

Have you forgotten when you die?
Your fingers bear account and they can't lie.
Your mouth will be shut but the fingers will reveal
everything which you typed on the keyboard to kill.

Your fingers keep no secret and speak for all to know
Repent now! Stop typing insults for show!"

I said "I promise! I promise! I'll stop it!"
Then the rain stopped the room was lit.
My ears drummed wildly, my thoughts full of fear.
When I looked at my fingers, the worms disappear....

If you belong to the above category, repent now.
For our Lord Allah knows it all.

Anak kecil main api
Terbakar hatinya sepi
Air mata darah bercampur keringat
Bumi dipijak milik orang

Nenek moyang kaya raya
Tergadai seluruh harta benda
Akibat sengketa sesamalah kita
Cinta lenyap diarus zaman

Being Beauty or Beast

Have you ever wondered why so many people who were bright, cute and beautiful as children, however, as they grew older their gorgeousness and beauty evaded them? Well, wonder no more. In this post, I will share with you what Sheikhul Islam Ibn Taymiyyah rahimahullaah had said about this topic.

The person who is righteous and honest, his honesty is manifest from the radiance or sparkle on his face, and his honesty can be known from the glow that is on his face, likewise the opposite for the sinful one and the liar. The older a person gets, the more this sign becomes apparent and obvious. Thus a person as a child would have a bright face, however if he becomes a sinful person, at the older stages in his life, an ugly face would manifest that which he used to internalize, and the opposite is also true.

It has been narrated that Ibn Abbas radiyallaahu ‘anhu said, “Indeed righteousness illuminates the heart, radiates the face, strengthens the body, increases provision, and produces a love in the hearts of the creation for that person. Whereas sinfulness darkens the heart, greys the face, weakens the body, and produces hatred in the hearts of the creation for that person.”

It is possible that a person may not intentionally lie; he may even be a person who makes great effort in ibaadah and has zuhd. However he has false, incorrect ‘aqeedah regarding either Allah, His deen or His Messenger sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam or His righteous servants. and what is on the inside affects what is on the outside. Thus, this false, incorrect ‘aqeedah that he thought was true and correct reflects on his face, and his face would be dark in accordance with the level of falsehood he possesses.

On the Day of Judgment this would be very clear as Allah says,
“And on the Day of Resurrection you will see those who lied against Allah their faces will be black. Is there not in Hell an abode for the arrogant ones?” [Surah Az-Zumar, 39: 60]

Allah ta’ala also said,
“On the Day when some faces will become white and some faces will become black; as for those whose faces will become dark (to them will be said): "Did you reject Faith after accepting it? Then taste the torment for rejecting Faith.” [Surah Ali-Imran, 3:106]

Uthman ibn Affaan radiyallaahu ‘anhu said, “No one ever hides evil within them except that Allah makes it manifest from his facial outlook and the statements his tongues utters.”

So, the choice is in your hand. Either you choose to become a charming, sweet and eye-catching person or you choose to be an ugly, horrible and nasty being. I believe that for sure everyone would go for a good looking and stunning guy. So be it. You are what you eat. It also includes that you are what you act or you are what you behave.

To Become BEAUTY???

or To Become BEAST???

inna lillahi wa inna ilaihi roji'un
