Pre school teacher. My pride.

Teaching.

Something that Ive been doing and Im loving it. Back in secondary school, I revise my work by teaching those friends who are weaker than me. By doing that, I know everything that I know and everything that I do not know – yet.

Now that Im teaching, its a whole different story. Now, teaching requires lots of dedication, commitment and passion and not forgetting skills and knowledge.

I can’t simply let go off my responsibilties as an educator. I can’t simply feel lazy to teach a particular boy who is damn slow. I can’t simply assume that the children understand what Ive taught them. I can’t afford to do that.

For your info, Im teaching the pre-schoolers. And I tell you teaching the pre-schoolers requires you more than just being a teacher. You have to be everything to be a pre-school teachers. You have to be their mother when they need you. You have to be a nurse when they need you. You have to be a friend when they need you. You have to be a clown when they need you. Simply, they need you to be what they need.

You have to love them like how their mother treat and love them. They love if we hug and kiss them. They love our touch. Not the abusive touch but the loving and caring touch. They love when you call their names with love. They also need your scoldings when they think they deserve and after that, things are just gonna be fine. You have to explain what’s the reason behind those scoldings, they will understand and believe me, they will love you more.

You have to care for them when they are sick. Apply some oitment when they come to you crying,”Teacher, I have stomachache.” You have to apply bandage when they fall down and wound themselves. You have to be gentle to them.

You have to be their friends who play with them. You have to act like a child and make silly face to them. They, definitely, are going to enjoy your company. My children sometimes climb on my back and I’d carry them around. I love this as this reminds me of our beloved Rasulullah who is very loving to children.

I love my job, Alhamdulillah. I love what I feel when I go to work. But this doesn’t mean I don’t face bad days as a teacher. I do. But the challenge is to remind myself why am I here as their teacher. Why am I chosen by Allah to be an educator. I come here to learn and teach. To remember and be grateful. To love and be loved. To understand and be understood.

I hope my children will grow up healthily, be blessed in their life, be guided and hopefully, I pray they will become someone useful to our community 🙂

Children, teacher loves u very much.
As I am writing this, My heart is flooded with tears coz my profession is not just my job but it is my life indeed.

Wassalam:)

How to Win your Wife’s Heart ?

 

If your wife is still asleep when you have woken up, give her a gentle kiss on the forehead.

Watch your wife’s beauty secretly. …

Whenever you have the opportunity, offer her a flower or a bouquet of flowers with a smile.

Rather than trying to satisfy her too much, feel and say that YOU are satisfied with her. Your own satisfaction will satisfy her.

Tell her twenty times a day, “I love you.” Send her SMS saying, “I love you.” If she says that she doesn’t believe you, tell her, “You have the right to disbelieve me, but I love you.”

On coming back home every time, give her a hug and a kiss on the forehead. Tell her that she looked really nice when she was asleep last night. Really feel that she was made for you – so you’re not only happy, but satisfied too; you’re not only satisfied, but proud too.

Feel that you have never seen anybody like her and let her know it. Tell her, “I love you so much that I don’t want to see anybody else love you. Somebody who loves you more than I do simply doesn’t exist.”

Don’t look for her body. That’s already yours. Rather look for her mind. She’s looking for opportunities to offer it to you.

When she acts like a child simply enjoy the beauty of her frivolity.

Look her into the eyes and smile.

Respect her mother and father. And tell her to do so even if she doesn’t sometimes like them very much.

When you feel deep love for her ask her, “Have you cast spell on me? How can I remove you from my mind? I’ve tried but failed.” Saying that will make your love more real.

When you have the time play games with her. If you lose, ask her for a kiss. If you win, act like a child.

May Allah give me and my friends a good companion to live with 🙂

Cinta anta anti @_@

DI PETIK DARI MAJALAH I,KELUARAN FEBRUARI 2006,OLEH USTAZ MASZLEE MALIK…

‘CINTA ANTA & ANTI…’

Cinta Remaja Dakwah.

Sebagai seorang pensyarah di IPT yang bergelar ustaz, penulis mempunyai
peluang yang menarik untuk bercampur dengan para pelajar yang menempuh zaman
muda belia mereka. Pelbagai masalah, isu dan juga pengalaman yang mereka
bawa untuk dibincangkan. Antara perkara yang sering dibawa berbincang ialah
persoalan cinta. Alaf yang serba unik telah menyaksikan bagaimana para
remaja dan belia dakwah tidak dapat lari dari fenomena cinta. Menariknya,
cinta yang mereka alami ini telah di”Islamik”kan seperti mana bank-bank,
institusi-institusi kewangan lain diislamkan. Maka timbullah istilah “Cinta
ukhwah”. Ayat-ayat dan hadis-hadis sering dijadikan alat untuk
menjustifikasikan apa yang dilakukan. Menarik lagi gejala ini menular di
kalangan mereka yang berkopiah, berserban, bertudung litup, naqib-naqibah
usrah dan mereka yang menggunakan ganti nama “ana – anta dan ana – anti”.

Sms,Yahoo Messenger, email dan lain-lain kemudahan perhubungan era ICT telah
menjadi penghubung utama cinta “anta-anti” ini. Ia lebih selamat, kerana
tidak perlu berdating seperti pasangan yang tidak Islamik. Tidak perlu
membazir tambang teksi, tambang bas dan juga membazir membeli kertas kajang
berbau wangi dan dakwat yang berwarna-warni seperti mana halnya anak-anak
muda lain yang jauh dari arus kebangkitan Islam. Bermula dengan kata-kata
tazkirah, berakhir dengan ikon senyuman, teddy bear dan kadang-kadang gambar
wanita bertudung.

Malah ada yang menjadikan kehadiran di seminar-seminar, kursus-kursus dan
juga wacana-wacana ilmiah sebagai peluang untuk berjumpa
. Bagi yang aktif
berpersatuan pula, mesyuarat-mesyuarat dan aktiviti-aktiviti persatuan
sering menjadi medan pelepas rindu. Alahai…kreatif betul anak-anak muda
dakwah alaf baru ini.

Fenomena yang berlaku ini dimeriahkan dan dikosmetikkan lagi oleh
nasyid-nasyid Melayu yang berpaksikan cinta muda-mudi. Klip-klip video
nasyid pun, tajuk-tajuk yang bombastik berbau cinta asmara. Hakikatnya,
fenomena cinta “anta-anti” ini semakin ketara dan semakin rancak. Ada yang
berakhir dengan perkahwinan, dan ada juga yang kecewa di pertengahan jalan,
dan tidak kurang juga yang telah menjerumuskan kedua-dua pasangan ke lembah
maksiat. wal’iyadhubillah…

 

Salah Faham ukhwah fillah


Teringat juga penulis kepada satu fenomena apabila seorang siswi datang
mengadu dia diusik oleh Pak Lebai. Bukan sekadar sms, kad ucapan hari lahir,
kad hari raya, malah sejambak bunga ros di hari lahir juga telah dikirimkan
oleh Pak Lebai tersebut.Tidak tahulah penulis apakah tanggapan masyarakat
terhadap fenomena seumpama ini. Yang pasti di setiap kad, sms dan di
jambangan bunga tersebut terukir kata-kata “ukhwah fillah kekal
abadi..”.sekali lagi makna ukhwah disalah gunakan.

Satu kes yang lain pula, seorang siswa meluahkan kekecewaannya apabila
dihampakan oleh seorang siswi yang satu “jemaah” dengannya. Beliau tidak
sangka setelah berpuluh-puluh minggu mereka bertukar-tukar sms dan tazkirah
melalui email, akhirnya siswi tersebut bertunang dengan orang lain yang juga
satu “jemaah” dengan mereka.
Aduh..lagi hebat daripada filem “Love Story”
yang pernah popular di tahun-tahun 70’an dahulu. Yang pasti, sekali lagi
tema “ukhwah fillah” menjadi “camouflagde” ke atas perhubungan antara dua
jantina yang ada kesedaran Islam ini.

Dalam satu insiden yang lain pula, seorang siswi pernah meminta pendapat
penulis. Seorang seniornya yang sedang menuntut di dalam IPT yang sama
dengan beliau telah bersungguh-sungguh melamarnya. Walaupun telah ditolak
lebih 20 kali, namun si teruna terus melamarnya juga.Sekali lagi slogan
“ukhwah fillah” menjadi lapik dan dijadikan bahan ugutan. Jika si siswi
tadi menolak lamarannya, maka hatinya akan hancur, dan ia bertentangan denga
mafhum hadis tadi
. Oleh kerana bersimpati dengan si senior tersebut, si
siswi terpaksa menerima lamaran itu. Menarik bukan “trend” percintaan
golongan anta-anti ini.

Seorang siswa juga pernah meluahkan kemarahannya ke atas naqib usrahnya di
bilik penulis. Mengapa tidak, tatkala di dalam usrah, berkepul-kepul dalil
dan fikrah yang dibawanya. Sampaikan ketika pertukaran ke usrah lain, si
naqib meminta siswa tadi agar berbai’ah untuk kekal di dalam perjuangan dan
tidak menyertai jemaah lain. Sayangnya, di dalam perjalanan balik kampung,
siswa tersebut nampak sang naqib berjalan berpegangan tangan dengan naqibah
sekelas mereka..
.ini yang paling menarik.Lebih hebat lagi, kedua-dua mereka
lengkap dengan aksesori berkopiah dan bertudung litup. Jika di zaman 70’an
dahulu nescaya apa yang dilakukan oleh sang naqib dan naqibah tersebut bakal
menerima cop “kafir” dari pendukung gerakan dakwah yang lain.

Di satu sudut yang lain pula, seorang siswa yang sering menceritakan
kehebatan “Abuya”nya kepada penulis, juga tidak dapat lari dari fenomena
cinta anta-anti ini. Penulis amat kagum dengan siswa yang sering muncul
dengan baju Melayu berkancing dan juga songkok berwarna-warninya ini.
Matanya yang bercelak sahaja sudah cukup untuk rakan-rakan yang lain hormat
kepada beliau. Sayangnya atas takdir Allah, ketika penulis berkunjung untuk
menziarahi beliau, penulis ternampak gambar seorang Muslimah menghiasi
desktop komputer peribadinya
. Ditanyakan sama ada itu adik, kakak ataupun
emaknya atau mungkin neneknya, beliau menafikan. Beliau terpaksa mengaku
bahawa itu adalah “kawan”nya. Yang hebatnya,
tertulis di sebelah keayuan wajah gadis tersebut “ukhwah fillah membawa ke
Jannah”.

Persoalannya, adakah fenomena ini sihat? Adakah ia sudah cukup islamik? Atau
penulis yang ketinggalan zaman sehingga naif terhadap trend muda mudi masa
kini? Ataupun fiqh Islamiyy juga perlu diubahkan untuk disesuaikan dengan
perubahan semasa
. Di dalam artikel yang terhad ini, penulis tidak berhajat
untuk memberikan hukuman mahupun pandangan terhadap fenomena yang menarik
ini. Biarlah para pembaca membuat penilaian mereka terhadap “sihat” atau
tidak sihatnya budaya ini. Semoaga ada di kalangan pembaca yang akan dapat
memberikan pandangan yang rasional serta boleh diwacanakan.

Wallahu’alam..

 
 
 
 
ukht: AiyooO.. keadaan yang sungguh menyedihkan 😦 kejahilan dalam agama dan mengikut nafsu semata-mata telah mengaburi mata manusia dalam membezakan yang baik dan buruk.. Semoga Allah mengampuni kite semua ehh? 😥

Munajat cinta

Hadir di dalam kemalapan
Menerangi harapan
Menguatkan keyakinan
Mengutuhkan semangat
Fikirku..Pulang bersama impian
Cuba meminta didorongi
Tangan diangkat
Kata-kata mengalun, bergema
Di kamarku menyendiri
Menghadap, bermunajat

Debaran hati menanti penuh tandatanya
Tidak pasti apakah risikan
Diredhai atau tidak disenangi
Aku cuba terima
Berserah

Ketentuan telah menetap
Telah diatur zaman berzaman
Walau rancangan cuba mendahului
Airmata menderas tatkala terdengar
Ini rupanya rancanganMu untukku, Ya Allah…

Redhalah wahai hati
Tenanglah wahai jiwa
Lihatlah hikmahNya wahai mata
Dengarlah bisikan hidayahNya wahai telinga
Hidulah keharuman ketentuanNya wahai pancaindera
Sesungguhnya ini yang terbaik buat dirimu
Yakinlah
 
 

 

Thanks Allah :)

saLAam~

yep, alhamdulillah.. now, im able to accept everythg. i hope Allah forgives me and my family.

saLam takziah mohammad rafiq’s family tho i din noe him. he’s actually abg fir’s friend. and i juz got to noe that from Fir.

“org2 baik selalu Allah da amik dulu kan??”

ok, lemme qoute from surah Al-hadid verse 23..
“(Kami jelaskan yang demikian itu) supaya kamu jgn berdukacita terhadap apa yang luput darimu dan tidak pula terlalu gembira dgn nikmat yang diberikanNya kpdmu…”

it’s alwez easy to say. alwez. i agree. and i believe that the tests given are the signs of His loves.

‘Allah loves us exactly the way we need to be loved. and through this love, He gives gifts that are truly unique. Something that is suitable for person and that person only. Its a reflection of how well He knows us and what we need.
Sometimes that gift is something we have longed for; sometimes that gift is unexpected favour. At other times, Allah shows us His love by giving us problems and hard times which instil in us discipline and force us to grow better and stronger’ 🙂

fir got share smthg with me one hadith qudsi. but pardon me, im not so sure of the accurate one. yet to find. insyaAllah kalau da jmp, nanti ana share..

bunyinyer smthg like this.. “Allah berkate pade malaikat, turunkan lan ujian dan balak kpd hamba2ku krn aku rindu rintihan2 mereka padeKu di waktu malam….” jembu kan? hee~

hmm… maybe it takes me the harder way to noe Him closer. but thanks Allah~
‘alaa kulli haal, semoga aku makin tabah dan semoga imanku meningkat, ameen.

another hadith qudsi to share. taken from http://www.iiu.edu.my/deed/hadith/other/hadithqudsi.html:

On the authority of Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him), who said that the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said: Allah (mighty and sublime be He) said:
Whosoever shows enmity to someone devoted to Me, I shall be at war with him. My servant draws not near to Me with anything more loved by Me than the religious duties I have enjoined upon him, and My servant continues to draw near to Me with supererogatory works so that I shall love him. When I love him I am his hearing with which he hears, his seeing with which he sees, his hand with which he strikes and his foot with which he walks. Were he to ask [something] of Me, I would surely give it to him, and were he to ask Me for refuge, I would surely grant him it. I do not hesitate about anything as much as I hesitate about [seizing] the soul of My faithful servant: he hates death and I hate hurting him.

It was related by al-Bukhari.

another one:

On the authority of Anas (may Allah be pleased with him), who said: I heard the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) say: Allah the Almighty said:
O son of Adam, so long as you call upon Me and ask of Me, I shall forgive you for what you have done, and I shall not mind. O son of Adam, were your sins to reach the clouds of the sky and were you then to ask forgiveness of Me, I would forgive you. O son of Adam, were you to come to Me with sins nearly as great as the earth and were you then to face Me, ascribing no partner to Me, I would bring you forgiveness nearly as great at it.

It was related by at-Tirmidhi (also by Ahmad ibn Hanbal). Its chain of authorities is sound.

last but not least,

Patience is the best armour of the believer 🙂

Intentions for marriage

Submitted by Abubakar on Thu, 2006-08-10 08:00.Spirituality
The following are intentions one should have when entering into marriage. The intentions were composed by the great Shaykh, the ‘Arif of Allah, ‘Ali bin Abi-Bakr as-Sakran, may Allah shower them both with mercy.

I intend to enter into this marriage and take this wife (or husband) for the love of Allah ‘Azza-wa-Jall and to have children so that the human race shall continue. I also intend [to enter this marriage] for the love of the Prophet, s.a.w. so that he may take pride in it, as he said: “Marry and increase in numbers, as I will take pride in you before other nations on the Day of Judgment.”
I have intended in this marriage—and all the actions and words that come from it—to be blessed by the prayer of a pious child; or for his intercession if he dies young before me.
I have intended by this marriage to protect myself from Satan, by breaking the desire, [and thus] breaking the temptations of Satan, to lower the gaze, and reduce the Wiswas (withdrawing whisperer).
I have also intended to protect my private parts from lewdness (illegal intercourse).
I have intended in this marriage the amusement of the self and to bring joy to it through by companionship (with my spouse); looking, and playing freely and to bring comfort to the heart and strengthening it for worship.
I have intended in this marriage the relief of the nafs and cherish it through companionship, the pleasure that comes through gazing at one’s spouse, mutual foreplay, the repose that floods the heart and strengthening it for worshiping.
I have intended by it, the relieving of the heart from the worries of housekeeping, cooking, sweeping, making the bed, cleaning the dishes and taking care of lively duties.
I have intended by this marriage, to struggle with the nafs and to train it ‘through care and guardianship’, to fulfill the rights of the family and to be patient with their characters, to endure the harm that comes from them, to work towards making them good, to guide them to the religious path, to struggle to seek lawful earnings for them, to command them to discipline the children by also asking from Allah for it and success for his sake and to drop between his hands and to show the excessive need towards Him in gaining it.
I have intended all the previous for Allah Almighty.

Allahumma, give us success as you have given them, help us as you have helped them. Overlook our shortcomings, accept [this] from us and do not entrust us to ourselves, even for the blink of an eye.Make good for us, all of the previous, by Your Grace and Generosity in good and in good health.
Allahumma, forgive us and have mercy upon us, be content with us and accept from us. Enter us into paradise and save us from the hellfire and make good all of our affairs.
Allahumma, grant me in everything—in this marriage and all of my affairs—Your Help, Blessing and Peace. Protect me from preoccupying myself with other than You and do not put obstacles between me and Your obedience and make this marriage sufficient and virtuous for me.
Allahumma, I—my moments of movement and stillness—am entrusted to You, so protect me; wherever I happen to be, take my affairs as You have taken the affairs of Your pious servants.
Allahumma, help us, together with our parents, children, spouses, our Shuyukh, our brothers, all our relatives, all those who come from the same womb as us, all those who have rights over us, and those who have the minimum of rights over us.
Allahumma, assist me in remembrance of You, gratitude towards You and excellence in You worship, O Lord of the Worlds.
Allahumma, guide us and grant us success, O Lord of the Worlds.
Allahumma, make us live this life by Your Book and the Sunnah, O the One who is Majestic and Noble.
Allahumma, we ask you by that which is accepted from us and by whatever brought us closer to You; amen. And send blessings and salutations, by Your Majesty, to the most noble of all envoys, Muhammad the seal of all prophets, his family and companions. And all praise is to Allah Lord of the Worlds.
-Book of Intentions by al-Habib Muhammad (Sa’ad) bin ‘Alawi al-‘Aidrus

Allahu ‘aalaam~I have intended all the previous and more from whatever I control, say and do in this marriage for Allah Almighty.
I have intended in this marriage whatever Your righteous servants and Your acting scholars have intended.
