The hate that I feel in my heart is real,
But these are feelings that I don't want to feel.
Please Allah help me to be strong,
As I know feeling like this is wrong.
You know the pain and anger that I feel in my heart,
Please take it away, make it depart.
I'm so tired and weary Dear Lord,
These feelings I cannot afford.
I want to feel alive, I want to feel free,
I want to be the best Muslim that I can be.
Please take this pain, throw it away,
I need to prostrate to You and pray.
Please Allah forgive my anger,
These feelings are from Shaitan- I'm in danger!
Please calm my heart, calm my mind,
Let me feel the peace that I yearn to find.
Thank You Allah for hearing me out,
Thank You Allah for allowing me to take the right route.

who are you...?

Nothing is more dangerous than a friend without discretion; even a prudent enemy is preferable.

Views on suicide have been influenced by cultural views on existential themes such as religion, honor, and the meaning of life. The Abrahamic religions consider suicide an offense towards God due to religious belief in the sanctity of life. In the West it was often regarded as a serious crime. Japanese views on honor and religion led to seppuku, one of the most painful methods of suicide, to be respected as a means to atone for mistakes or failure, or as a form of protest during the samurai era. In the 20th century, suicide in the form of self-immolation has been used as a form of protest, and in the form of kamikaze and suicide bombing as a military or terrorist tactic. Sati is a Hindu funeral practice in which the widow would immolate herself on her husband's funeral pyre, either willingly, or under pressure from the family and in-laws.
"Timmy!"… Tim always came when she called or needed him. He was her special friend; her only friend. The only one she would ever truly need. He knew everything about her, perfection. "I am here Steph. Is everything alright?" He appeared out of nowhere as he always did, usually behind her as he loved to make her jump in surprise. Tall and handsome with chocolate brown hair and a sly smile, he was an ideal companion. Tim was a mischievous and clever troublemaker at times, keeping her on her toes as best he could, and she loved him dearly for it. Oh, I was just lonely. Wanting some company." Today was different though. He appeared detached and edgy, as if something was greatly disturbing him. "What's wrong Timmy? What's on your mind today?" Silence Timmy wouldn't look at her, just shuffled his feet in a solemn annoyance and worry. It was odd for him, as he usually was quite the conversationalist, yet today was not the day for chit chat it seemed. " are going to die." He declared abruptly with a sorrowful tone. Steph took several steps away from him in shock, not willing to believe the words he spoke. "How? Who? Why? What? Where? When?" she stammered quickly, wanting answers.
"Drowning. You will drown." He merely shook his head and refused to speak any more after. There was something he specifically did not desire to reveal, she could read it in his eyes. He was hiding a motive he could not bring himself to admit. "Well?" She stared at her feet, unsure of what to say or do. "Let's go for a walk, take your mind off things." "No water?" She questioned. "No water." A shrug eased from his shoulders as he made for the door, not waiting for her to catch up to him. She was confused by both his words and actions, especially from such a dear friend as her Timmy. Trying to push it off as just a bad day, but it wouldn't leave her alone because her Timmy never had a bad day. Fear rose to her throat as possibilities floated through her mind, causing a constant check over her shoulder to see if anyone was following them. "No one is following us, Steph. You don't need to keep checking." She bit her lip in shame, trying to hide her obvious embarrassment. Following behind him in silence, it was deathly. Every time she opened her mouth to speak, the sound and words were stolen from her as if she was speaking into a void."Where are we going Timmy?" They had walked into the patch of forest behind her house. A place they often ventured to be alone and talk together, sharing intimate secrets and passions. "Someplace, special." Still following his lead, he brought them to a dark shack a good ways from any sort of civilization. They had found it on one of the numerous walks together, finding it to be the perfect place for a hideout. Held together with a few nails and a couple of dusty windows, it wasn't much, but it was a castle to her. The most magnificent place in the world, because it was their place. Oh Timmy, what a great idea!" "Yeah, great" His attitude had not improved, and if their castle couldn't lift his spirits, she wasn't sure what could. She wrapped her arms about his waist, attempting to pull him close, but he gently pushed her away. Never did his eyes even come close to looking into hers, and she was crushed. "I'm sorry Steph. It wasn't supposed to be like this. It wasn't supposed to happen this way." A confused look spread across her features as she stood back in a corner of the shack staring at him. She didn't want to understand what his words meant, but her gut said she would find out soon enough. A hand went behind his back to retrieve something. Her eyes widened when he brought it into view, the meager light reflecting off the shiny metal surface. A sharp blade glimmered between them, causing her to freeze and her skin to crawl helplessly. "Timmy? W...what is that for?" Brown eyes stared at the object as he spun it in his fingers with great agility. The ease with which he performed the act did little to calm her nerves. He didn't answer her, only stepping towards her slowly, still unable to look her in the eyes. "It is time this dream ended, Steph. This dream has to end." She tried to run, but he grabbed her arm and twisted it behind her. A scream escaped her lips from both pain and utter terror."Your time of use has come to an end. I must move on." Tears streamed down her pale features as he spoke. She didn't understand, especially now, but he was too strong for her. If she tried to struggle, it would only cause her more pain and tighten his grip. "The time is NOW!" The blade stabbed the supple flesh of her abdomen. A gasp of surprise escaped her as the pain stole her breath. She reached out to him, to touch him, to feel him. He wasn't there. He had vanished into thin air, leaving her alone. Backing into a wall, she slipped to the floor of the shack, blood began to flow up into her mouth. It tasted horrible, but she couldn't make it go away or stop. Her body was frozen. She tried to take a deep breath, but warm liquid filled her lungs instead. I'm sorry … Timmy's voice echoed in her mind; his image blinked in and out before her. Who are you…Tim? “Your own creation...” The voice replied, just before the world went black forever…and no way or no any chance to turn back. THE END.
For thousands of years, people have wondered about the reasons behind suicide. Many theories have been put forward. No one, however, has found a complete or satisfactory answer. Each case of suicide is separate and individual, with its own complications, sorrows, and mysteries. There is no single explanation for what causes people to kill themselves. The natural end of every human life is death. Some people, for reasons that have never been fully understood, choose to end their own lives. This is called suicide, which means literally "self-killing." For all the uncertainty that has surrounded the phenomenon of suicide, his assessment of the problem is probably as accurate as any. The individual, in seemingly hopeless conflict with the world, decides to end his or her existence in what amounts to a final assault against a society that can no longer be tolerated. In so doing, the person tries to obtain a final revenge on everything and everyone that have caused their feelings of depression. Sometimes suicide has been used as a form of execution. Perhaps the most famous such case is that of the philosopher Socrates, who was required to drink hemlock to end his life in 399 BC, after being found guilty of corrupting the youth of Athens. In the 20th century the German general Erwin Rommel took poison to stop his breaths…so why not just legalize it. Modern medical technology has been able to extend life a great deal - but a longer life is not always the same as a better life. Many people are concerned that when death draws near, it will be painful, debilitating, or otherwise miserable. Some would rather die a bit sooner than face that. If a person feels that death is the only way out who is to judge their decision? If god or some other form of superior being did not want us to end our life it would not have given us a brain capable of doing so. Suicide should be legal everywhere.
Why is Suicide Wrong? While it is normal to have suicidal thoughts, suicide has a much larger physical, social, moral and emotional impact than most people ever realize. It is not wrong to feel depressed, unhappy, out of control, lost, or scared. It is not wrong to feel paralyzed in a bad situation or hopeless about the future. It is not wrong to have fleeting thoughts that things would be so much easier, if only you were not here. Feeling this way does not make you a person of weak character. Everyone deals with pain differently, and one person may come away with more intense emotions about a situation than another.
God Owns You? Most people probably think that they are somehow in charge of their life - their life and their bodies are their own responsibility. According to some theologians, however, that isn't actually the case. They argue that God owns you and, therefore, you have no right to do anything to your body or your life that God doesn't sanction. This bit of authoritarian theology is well expressed by the notorious "God Squad," who responds to a person's question about whether taking drugs qualifies as a sin: The question of whether or not using drugs is a sin (of course, in this case, we're referring to the use of illegal, addictive drugs, as well as legal, addictive drugs that are harmful to your health) depends on a bigger question: "Who owns your body?" If your answer is, "I own my body," then you ought to be able to put anything you want into your own body. You ought to be able to refuse medical treatment for your body. If you want, you ought to be able to pierce, tattoo, or mutilate your body. You even ought to be able to kill your body to commit suicide if you want to. For religions that believe in God, their version of this answer is that God owns your body because God created and sanctifies all life. You did not create your body or your life; therefore you have no right to harm your body or your life.
The Impact of Suicide, Suicide is FOREVER. You do not get to wake up. You do not get a second chance. You will not be able to say, "Wait, I want to stay." There is no turning back like. Think about the situation in grisly fact. Someone will have to find your body, and most likely it will be someone who loves and cares for you. They will bear this in their memory for the rest of their lives. If you kill yourself at someone else’s hand, such as laying in front of a car or train or forcing a police officer to kill you, know that these people will bear the brunt of the emotional turmoil and will always wish that it could have been different. There may be people standing on the sidelines, knowing that you are in pain and wishing that they could help you. These people will suffer forever in guilt, wondering if there was more they could have done or said to change your mind. They will blame themselves. The repercussions go far beyond this. Friends or family members may grow so despondent that they, in turn, take their own lives. Most newspapers will not even mention your name after death by suicide. But the best part I reckon, you or him or me… will know what life is after death, Kurt Kobain & M.J know already. I agree many religious observers believe that suicide is fundamentally wrong, so… who cares?
Life is meant to be lived and experienced. Emotional traumas can cause some individuals to give up long before the body stops breathing. The human spirit is both strong and fragile. The desire to live is instinctive in all of us at birth. It is only through tragic and extreme circumstances that some lose touch with that instinct and choose, instead, to put an end to their existence. The onset of such an emotionally tragic state of mind can often result from the sudden loss of something extremely and profoundly important to the individual. Whether it is the loss of a loved one, a career, or physical health, these losses can be overwhelming and debilitating. If the individual is unable to refocus their purpose and energies toward something that provides them with a new and meaningful purpose, depression and a loss of self can easily become dominating forces in a once, well-lived life. Depression is not only a leading cause of emotional suicide, but the behavior itself will, in turn, intensify the depression. Left untreated, this cycle can become debilitating to the point of having virtually the same consequences of physical suicide, up to and including eventual, early death.
Why Shouldn't Legalize Suicide? Under the banners of compassion and autonomy, some are calling for legal recognition of a "right to suicide" and societal acceptance of "physician-assisted suicide." Suicide proponents evoke the image of someone facing unendurable suffering who calmly and rationally decides death is better than life in such a state. They argue that society should respect and defer to the freedom of choice such people exercise in asking to be killed. But what would be the consequences of accepting this perspective? Accepting a "right to suicide" would create a legal presumption of sanity, preventing appropriate mental health treatment. If suicide become legal rights, the presumption that people attempting suicide are deranged and in need of psychological help, borne out by many studies and years of experience, would be reversed. Those seeking suicide would be legally entitled to be left alone to do something irremediable, based on a distorted assessment of their circumstances, without genuine help. An attempt at suicide, some psychologists say, is often a challenge to see if anyone out there really cares.
If society creates a "right to suicide", the message perceived by a suicide attempter is not likely to be, "We respect your wishes," but rather, "we don't care if you live or die."Almost all who commit suicide have mental health problems. Few people, if any, simply sit down and make a cool, rational decision to commit suicide. In fact, studies have indicated that 93-94% of those committing suicide suffer from some identifiable mental disorder. In one study, conducted by Dr. Eli Robbins of suicides occurring in St. Louis, Missouri. An independent British study came up with a remarkably similar total figure, finding that 93% of those who commit suicide suffer from a diagnosable mental disorder. Persons with mental disorders make distorted judgments. Suicide is often a desperate step taken by individuals who consider their problems so intractable as to make their situations hopeless. But experts in psychology recognize the evaluations these individuals make of their personal situations are flawed. The suicidal person suffering from depression typically undergoes severe emotional and physical strain. This physical and emotional exhaustion impairs basic cognition, creates unwarranted self-blame, and generally lowers overall self esteem, all of which easily lead to distorted judgments. For example, one study conducted by two psychiatrists in Seattle, Washington found 75% of the 96 suicide attempters they studied were actually quite ambivalent about their intentions to die. It is not actually a desire to die, but rather the desire to accomplish something by the attempt that drives the attempter to consider such a drastic option. Suicide is the means, not the end. Often, suicide attempters are apparently seeking to establish some means of communication with significant persons in their lives or to test those persons' care and affection. This explains why, paradoxically but truthfully, many say after an obvious suicide attempt that they really didn't want to kill themselves. Psychiatrists have long advanced the opinion that underlying a suicidal person's ostensible wish to die is actually a wish to be rescued, so that a suicide attempt may quite accurately be described, not as a wish to "leave it all behind," but as a "cry for help." To allow or assist in a suicide, therefore, is not truly fully respecting a person's "autonomy" or honoring an individual's real wishes. Depression can be treated. Alcoholism can be overcome. The difficult situations and circumstances of life which, at the moment, seem permanent and pervasive often dissolve or resolve in time. Encouraging or validating the disturb individual's feelings or misperceptions in fact make it less likely individual will get the help he or she needs and subconsciously probably wants.
What I really believe is that this knowledge is accessible through the Quran and the authentic traditions of Prophet Muhammad, may God praise him, and that it is guaranteed by the Syariah (Islamic Law). Islam establishes a legal framework, and embodies a code of ethics, designed to protect the rights of an individual including his or her right to live in a secure society. Prophet Muhammad, may God praise him, said, “Whosoever wakes up (in the morning) feeling that he is secure in his community, free from ailments and diseases in his body, and has enough provision for a single day, it is as if he owns the entire world.” (Tirmizi). The syariah is concerned with preserving five basic rights: the right to practice religion, the protection of life, the safeguarding of the mind or intellect, the preservation of honor and family, and the sanctity of his wealth and property. A unified community establishes a moral and ethical base in which individual rights are upheld. Often when discussing this commit suicide issue its relate to religion, one hears the statement that none has the right to judge anyone else’s beliefs, or that religion is a person’s private matter and we cannot say that it is wrong or right. Throughout history, societies have based their laws and ethics upon “absolute truths” which they deem to be “right”, and this is either a result of an exterior text regarded as supreme, or of the trait found in the innate nature of humans that causes them to see certain things as good and others as evil. Humans, to a limited scale, can see certain things as good and evil. For example, all humans, left to their natural state without perversion of the mind, will see feces and urine as filthy. Also, certain deeds, like stealing, killing and lying are also known to be evil, while truth, sincerity, and honor are seen to be lofty. This is a result of a trait that was created in all humans, but as mentioned above, this sense is limited. If one says that they do not have the right to judge other’s beliefs or actions, they are, in fact, contradicting themselves. If you were to ask many of these people whether killing infants or suicide is correct and acceptable, they will naturally answer that it is not. It is Allah who created the world and it is Allah who set the scales of justice. It is Allah who is perfect and it is Allah who has no faults whatsoever. And just Allah knows best.

The Traveler
by Huma Ahmad

The man stood upon a bluff overlooking the sea. He looked across, across the wide blue expanse to the sun reflecting off the water and remembered all that he had seen.

He had travelled to India and seen the poverty of the people. So many people crowding the busy streets, teeming with bicycles, rickshaws and cars. The signs of poverty lay everywhere. Everywhere they held out their hands and begged money for food. Women asked for help gesturing to their hungry childdren. Old men pointed towards their broken limbs or where their limbs should have been and recounted how they had lost them. Disease, hunger, heat, pessimism, all lingered in the air.

He had travelled to Palestine and saw women in black hijab watching helplessly as outsiders demolished their homes and lives and enforced unjust laws upon them, in their own country. The young fought back in any way they could, fought for what they never had, for now this generation will have grown up without a homeland.

He travelled to Egypt and saw teenagers watching Western films and imitating them. He saw girls wearing mini-skirts and smoking and the boys using English swearwords and picking up girls. And this was a Musllim country. Completely rejecting their religion, they were concerned only with becoming as Western and as `cool' as they could be.

He travelled to Russia and watched with joy as the people newly free began to pray and read the Quran again. And he watched with tears as the people of Bosnia suffered. Hundreds of thousands died. Three million became homeless, to freeze or starve. Thousands were sent to torture and death camps. Women were used as a weapon of war. Innocent bystanders, those who tried to help and snipers were not differentiated among, all were gunned down on the streets regardless. Parents had to make the hardest decision of their lives, whether to send their children away from a warzone or towards an unknown future. University students now become soldiers, become accustomed to blood, killing and death.

He had travelled to America and saw the people, so rich in life, money and freedom do nothing to help those others around them. Content in their world, too involved in their own petty problens, they were ignorant. Children grew up on playgrounds surrounded by violence, drugs, and alcohol. No one was there to warn them. Going to public schools they were completely involved with `American' life. Religion, morals, thought, all seemed to dissappear from their lives.

He travelled to Somalia and saw the people starving from drought and war. Armed bands commandeered shipments of food and aid for hungry children and people. Up to 5,000 died there each week. Many faced imminent starvation. Hospitals were so crowded many lay bleeding in dirty hallways.

All over the world, he saw Islam burning. They had all thought the next millenium would bring power and strength to the Muslims. Instead, it seemed dissintegrating Qurans and boarded up mosques would become a scene from the future.

He looked up towards the horizon and saw a speck of gold that was his boat. It soon slipped over the edge and dissappeared. Now he could never go back. He turned and walked away as the sun set behind him.

"There are two ways to live: you can live as if nothing is a miracle; you can live as if everything is a miracle.? Albert Einstein."

Miracle. It is a common subject. We always hear someone talking about miracle, either directly or relating it with any occasion that happens to them. Usually, people will relate it with occasion that makes their life better, such as meeting with an amazing person or encountering an event that affect their whole, especially improving it to a better state. Whatever it is, miracle definitely does not come everyday. As for me myself, miracle seldom appears in my own life. Everyone has their own opinion about miracle.

''Miracles are spontaneous, they cannot be summoned, but come of themselves” -Katherine Anne Potter. Some people say that there is nothing that can cause miracle. It just come to us unconditionally, whether we realize it or not. We might not realize something that we encounter today or just now might be considered as a miracle. For instance, avoiding yourself from falling might be a miracle after all.

However, in some circumstances, the meaning of miracle as stated above is not valid. In Islam, miracle is defined as a supernatural intervention in the life of human beings. It is usually called 'mukjizah', as in the Arabic term. 'Mukjizah' is related to miracless that happened to Prophets, for example, Allah sent Al-Quran to Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) as a 'mukjizah for him.'Mukjizah ' acts as a proof for the prophets as a messenger from Allah. In Islam, everything that happens in life comes from Allah, whether we like it or not. This is because everything that happens has been fated by Allah, or known as Qada' and Qadar. We must accept it with all our heart, and realize that there is something hidden behind the things that happens in our life.

Well, if anything happens in our life, treat them equally whether it makes us happy or makes us feel down at some time. Remember that there is secret behind everything, and it is the secret from the sky as everything is destined by Allah swt.

Ayuh... sudah tiba masanya.

Hukuman Bagi Orang Yang Murtad
dicopy dari

Dari Abdullah bin 'Amr r.a., Rasulullah s.a.w. bersabda:
"Sampaikanlah PesanKu Biarpun Satu Ayat..."


Persoalan riddah telah disentuh oleh para ulama, bahkan ia telah mengambil salah satu tempat yang terpenting di dalam senarai kes-kes hukum jenayah yang mereka bicarakan. Persoalan ini mereka letakkan di dalam bab atau bahagian khas yang sebahagiannya mereka namakan dengan Kitab Al-Riddah, Bab Al-Riddah, Ahkam Al-Riddah (hukum-hakam orang murtad).
Dengan merujuk kepada analisis hukum yang dikeluarkan oleh ulama tentang orang-orang murtad berdasarkan nash-nash syarak, hukum pertama yang mereka sepakati ialah tentang wajib membunuh orang-orang yang benar-benar didapati murtad. Ilmuan fiqh abad ini, Dr.Wahbah Al-Zuhaihi berkata : "Para ulama telah sepakat tentang wajib hukum bunuh ke atas orang murtad." Katanya lagi : "Dan telah ijmak para ahli ilmu tentang wajib hukum bunuh ke atas lelaki yang murtad dan hukum bunuh ke atas wanita yang murtad dan hukum bunuh ke atas wanita yang murtad mengikut pendapat jumhur ulama." (Al-Fiqh Al-Islami wa Adillatuh : 6:186)
Mengikut analisis para ulama lagi, tindakan murtad merupakan salah satu jenis kekufuran yang amat keji dan sangat keterlaluan dan ianya menyebabkan terhapus dan hilangnya segala balasan pahala kebajikan yang pernah dilakukan sebelum murtad sekiranya mati didalam kemurtadan (wal 'iyazu billah). (Al-Sayyid Al-Bakri, I'anah Al- Thalibin : 4:132-134)
Perlaksanaan hukum bunuh di atas hanya akan berlaku apabila orang murtad berkenaan enggan bertaubat dan enggan kembali kepada Islam setelah dinasihati dan diarahkan bertaubat. Hukum memberi nasihat dan menyuruh bertaubat ini adalah wajib ke atas pemerintah. Taubat di sini mestilah dilaksanakan dengan mengucap dua kalimah syahadat. (I'anah Al-Thalibin : 4:139)
Selain daripada hukum di atas, banyak lagi hukum yang timbul kesan daripada tindakan keluar daripada Islam, antara lain ialah : Hilang hak penjagaan anak, baki hartanya diserahkan ke baitulmal, tidak sah menjadi wali nikah, hilang taraf kehormatan diri, putus perkahwinan setelah habis idah, tidak dibenarkan
berkahwin sama ada dengan orang Islam atau kafir, tidak berhak harta waris dan lain-lain lagi.
DASAR HUKUM WAJIB MEMBUNUH ORANG MURTAD: Di antara dasar hukum wajib pihak berkuasa membunuh orang murtad ialah hadis-hadis berikut yang maksudnya : "Sesiapa yang menukar keislamannya hendaklah kamu bunuh dia." (Hadis para Perawi kecuali Muslim).
Maksudnya: "Tidak halal darah seseorang muslim kecuali dengan salah satu daripada tiga perkara :Tayyib (duda/janda) yang berzina, qishash nyawa dengan nyawa dan orang yang menukar agamanya yang terpisah daripada jemaah (kaum muslimin)." (Hadis riwayat Bukhari dan Muslim daripada Ibnu Mas'ud).
Maksudnya: "Mana-mana lelaki yang murtad daripada Islam, hendaklah kamu menyerunya supaya kembali kepada Islam jika dia mahu. Jika tidak, pancunglah tengkuknya. Dan mana-mana perempuan yang murtad,hendaklah kamu menyerunya supaya kembali kepada Islam jika dia mahu. Jika tidak, pancunglah tengkuknya." (Hadis riwayat Thabarani daripada Mu'az bin Jabal).
Itulah di antara dalil-dalil yang menunjukkan betapa berat dan besarnya risiko murtad ( keluar daripada agama Islam).
Berdasarkan hasil analisis para ulama yang muktabar dan berkaliber daripada hadis-hadis ini dan dalil-dalil lain, adalah wajib dihukum bunuh orang murtad sebagai risiko terhadap kemurtadannya.
Orang yang tidak mengakui kedudukan dan fungsi dalil-dalil tersebut sebagai dalil wajib bunuh ke atas orang murtad setelah cukup persyaratan hukumnya, serta menafikan hukum berkenaan, mereka adalah golongan yang terpesong, tersilap dan terkeluar daripada konsep ahli sunnah bahkan terkeluar daripada Islam (kafir).
Termasuk golongan murtad itu, mereka yang antihadis yang hanya mengutamakan atau hanya berpegang kepada Al-Quran. Golongan ini menyampaikan diayah jahat mereka menerusi pelbagai media massa sama ada media cetak atau elektronik. Mereka cuba mempengaruhi orang-orang yang cetek pengetahuannya mengenai Islam dengan memaparkan berbagai teori yang mengelirukan tanpa bersumberkan kepada asas-asas hukum yang muktabar. Mereka mengutamakan andaian akal mereka daripada nas-nas syarak. Mereka ini adalah golongan yang sesat dan menyesatkan.
Termasuk juga yang terkeluar daripada agama Islam itu mereka yang menghina dan menolak hadis yang telah disepakati dan diijmahkan oleh ahli hadis tentang kesahihannya. Ini kerana mengikut para ulama yang muktabar, di antara sebab yang boleh membawa seseorang terkeluar daripada Islam (murtad atau menjadi kafir) termasuklah menghina atau menolak hukum yang telah diijmakkan umat Islam.

Dibunuh Kerana Bertudung, Mengapa Berita Ini Ditutup?mengapa tiada sambutan?dimanakah maruah umat Islam?
Seorang wanita Muslim Mesir di bunuh di dalam mahkahmah Jerman, apa anda fikir?
Kisah menyanyat hati ini berlaku minggu lepas. Kisahnya begini, seorang muslimat Mesir di Jerman, Marwa Al-Sherbini, yang pada Ogos 2008 telah memfailkan saman kepada jirannya yang menggelarnya sebagai 'Terrorist', kerana beliau berhijab.Diulang, beliau digelar 'Pengganas', kerana beliau B.E.R.T.U.D.U.N.G. !!
Maka setelah mendengar hujah kedua-dua pihak pada Rabu minggu lepas, mahkamah mendapati lelaki, yakni jiran kepada Marwa tadi bersalah, dan dikehendaki membayar denda 2800 Euro. Anda tau apa berlaku sesudah itu?
Lelaki ini telah menerkam ke arah Marwa, dan menikam mangsa 18 kali!! Ya, anda tak salah baca, memang 18 kali, dan yang paling teruk, Marwa ditikam sehingga mati, sambil beliau memeluk anaknya. Dan Marwa ketika itu mengandung 3bulan...tragis bukan?
Belum cukup tragis, ada lagi. Suami Marwar yang melihat isterinya ditikam terus menerkam ke arah lelaki tadi, dan...akhirnya suaminya juga ditikam 3 kali. Nah. Tidak cukup dengan itu, pengawal keselamatan yang 'melihat' kejadian tadi telah bertindak menembak suami Marwar. Nah...ini baru betul2 tragis.
Sekarang anda fikir, bagaimana logik seorang perempuan ditikam 18kali di dalam mahkamah, tanpa ada seorang pun yang bertindak menyelamatkan wanita ini, melainkan suaminya, yang akhirnya kerkesudahn ditembak.
Logik atau tidak anda mengambil masa hanya 1 saat untuk menikam 18 kali? Cuba anda tikam angin 18 kali, berapa lama masa yang anda ambil, tikam secepat mungkin. Malah 1saat untuk 1 tikaman pun sukar dicapai. Maka tidakkah anda terfikir kenapa reaksi manusia di situ terlalu lembab? Bengong bukan.
Seorang pemerhati telah berkata tentang suami Marwa, "Dia bukan seorang yang berambut perang, jadi dia tentu penyerangnya." Ya, ini logik pada pandangan mereka. Tapi sesekali tidak bagi kita.
Itu isu pertama, isu kedua adalah mengapa seakannya media barat cuba menutup isu ini. Langsung tidak dihebohkan. Adakah kerana darah orang Islam tidak sama dengan daragh mereka? Ermm..logik bukan. Hanya orang yang gila sahaja percaya ini.
Mungkin ada antara yang membaca entri ini berfikir bahawa ini hanya isu kecil, mengapap erlu dihebohkan. Ada bukan? Ini bukan soal peka semata-mata, cuba anda fikir, kalau Marwa boleh ditikam 18 kali dalam mahkamah, 'tanpa disedari' maka adakah mungkin mereka2 ini menyedari pembunuhan demi pembunuhan yang berlaku nun di Gaza, di Tebing Barat, di Darfur, dan yang terbaru di China. Atau ada antara anda yang masih tidak tahu saudara kita dibunuh di China. Ya, logik la sikit kalau anda tidak tahu, sebab semua pembunuhan tadi berlaku di luar mahkamah.
Sampai bila....sampai bila baru dunia harus berkata 'cukup'.

Sometimes we just need to be reminded!

A well-known speaker started off his seminar by: holding up a $20.00 bill.. In the room of 200, he asked,” Who would like this $20 bill?"Hands started going up. He said, "I am going to give this $20 to one of you but first, let me do this. He proceeded to crumple up the $20 dollar bill. He then asked, "Who still wants it?"
Still the hands were up in the air. Well, he
replied, "What if I do this?” And he dropped it on the ground
and started to grind it into the floor with his shoe.
He picked it up, now crumpled and dirty. "Now, who still wants it?"
Still the hands went into the air. My friends, we have all learned a very valuable lesson.
No matter what I did to the money, you still wanted it because it did not decrease in value. It was still worth $20. Many times in our lives, we are dropped, crumpled, and ground into the dirt

Apakah WAHABI... dan siapakah mereka?

Syeikh Abdullah Fahim berkata :" Sekarang sudah ada timbul di Malaya mazhab Khawarij yakni mazhab yang keluar dari mazhab 4 mazhab Ahli Sunnah wal Jama`ah. Maksud mereka itu hendak mengelirukan faham awam yang sebati dan hendak merobohkan pakatan bangsa Melayu yang jati. Dan menyalahkan kebanyakan bangsa Melayu.Hukum-hukum mereka itu diambil daripada kitab Hadyur-Rasul yang mukhtasar daripada kitab Hadyul-'Ibad dikarang akan dia oleh Ibnul Qayyim al-Khariji, maka Ibnul Qayyim dan segala kitabnya ditolak oleh ulama Ahlis Sunnah wal Jama`ah.Tuan - tuan bangsa Melayu jangan tertipu daya hasutan mereka itu dikeluar hukum - hukum yang tiada terpakai dalam Mazhab Syafie, dan fatwa mereka itu akan masalah yang buruk - buruk, sudah terdengar kepada awam, harapan bangsa Melayu jangan berpecah belah sesama bangsa sendiri.Siapa yang datang kepada kamu dan menyuruh kamu semua supaya taat kepada seorang lelaki tertentu tujuannya untuk memecahkan persatuan kamu dan menghancurkan kesatuan kamu maka bunuhlah akan dia."

Makna cinta youleeana

Makna Cinta ....
Suami saya adalah seorang yang sederhana, saya mencintai sifatnya yang alami dan saya menyukai perasaan hangat yang muncul di perasaan saya, ketika saya bersandar di bahunya yang bidang.Tiga tahun dalam masa perkenalan, dan dua tahun dalam masa pernikahan, saya harus akui, bahwa saya mulai merasa lelah, alasan-alasan saya mencintainya dulu telah berubah menjadi sesuatu yang menjemukan.Saya seorang wanita yang sentimentil dan benar-benar sensitif serta berperasaan halus.
Saya merindukan saat-saat romantis seperti seorang anak yang menginginkan permen. Tetapi semua itu tidak pernah saya dapatkan.Suami saya jauh berbeda dari yang saya harapkan. Rasa sensitif-nya kurang. Dan ketidakmampuannya dalam menciptakan suasana yang romantis dalam pernikahan kami telah mementahkan semua harapan saya akan cinta yang ideal.
Suatu hari, saya beranikan diri untuk mengatakan keputusan saya kepadanya, bahwa saya menginginkan perceraian."Mengapa?", tanya suami saya dengan terkejut."Saya lelah, kamu tidak pernah bisa memberikan cinta yang saya inginkan," jawab saya.Suami saya terdiam dan termenung sepanjang malam di depan komputernya, tampak seolah-olah sedang mengerjakan sesuatu, padahal tidak.Kekecewaan saya semakin bertambah, seorang pria yang bahkan tidak dapat mengekspresikan perasaannya, apalagi yang bisa saya harapkan darinya?Dan akhirnya suami saya bertanya, "Apa yang dapat saya lakukan untuk merubah pikiran kamu?"Saya menatap matanya dalam-dalam dan menjawab dengan pelan,"Saya punya pertanyaan, jika kau dapat menemukan jawabannya di dalam perasaan saya, saya akan merubah pikiran saya :"Seandainya, saya menyukai setangkai bunga indah yg ada di tebing gunung. Kita berdua tahu jika kamu memanjat gunung itu, kamu akan mati. Apakah kamu akan memetik bunga itu untuk saya?"
Dia termenung dan akhirnya berkata, "Saya akan memberikan jawabannya besok." Perasaan saya langsung gundah mendengar responnya..
Keesokan paginya, dia tidak ada di rumah, dan saya menemukan selembar kertas dengan oret-oretan tangannya dibawah sebuah gelas yang berisi susu hangat yang bertuliskan ......"Sayang, saya tidak akan mengambil bunga itu untukmu, tetapi ijinkan saya untuk menjelaskan alasannya."Kalimat pertama ini menghancurkan perasaan saya.Saya melanjutkan untuk membacanya."Kamu selalu pegal-pegal pada waktu 'teman baik kamu' datang setiap bulannya, dan saya harus memberikan tangan saya untuk memijat kaki kamu yang pegal.""Kamu senang diam di rumah, dan saya selalu kuatir kamu akan menjadi 'aneh'. Saya harus membelikan sesuatu yang dapat menghibur kamu di rumah atau meminjamkan lidah saya untuk menceritakan hal-hal lucu yang saya alami.""Kamu selalu terlalu dekat menonton televisi, terlalu dekat membaca buku, dan itu tidak baik untuk kesehatan mata kamu. Saya harus menjaga mata saya agar ketika kita tua nanti, saya masih dapat menolong mengguntingkan kuku kamu dan mencabuti uban kamu.""Tangan saya akan memegang tangan kamu, membimbing kamu menelusuri pantai, menikmati matahari pagi dan pasir yang indah. Menceritakan warna-warna bunga yang bersinar dan indah seperti cantiknya wajah kamu.""Tetapi Sayang, saya tidak akan mengambil bunga indah yang ada di tebing gunung itu hanya untuk mati. Karena, saya tidak sanggup melihat air mata kamu mengalir."Sayang, saya tahu, ada banyak orang yang bisa mencintai kamu lebih dari saya mencintai kamu. Untuk itu Sayang, jika semua yang telah diberikan tangan saya, kaki saya, mata saya tidak cukup buat kamu, saya tidak bisa menahan kamu untuk mencari tangan, kaki, dan mata lain yang dapat membahagiakan kamu."Air mata saya jatuh ke atas tulisannya dan membuat tintanya menjadi kabur, tetapi saya tetap berusaha untuk terus membacanya."Dan sekarang, Sayang, kamu telah selesai membaca jawaban saya.Jika kamu puas dengan semua jawaban ini, dan tetap menginginkan saya untuk tinggal di rumah ini, tolong bukakan pintu rumah kita, saya sekarang sedang berdiri di sana menunggu jawaban kamu.""Jika kamu tidak puas dengan jawaban saya ini, Sayang, biarkan saya masuk untuk membereskan barang-barang saya, dan saya tidak akan mempersulit hidup kamu. Percayalah, bahagia saya adalah bila kamu bahagia."Saya segera berlari membuka pintu dan melihatnya berdiri di depan pintu dengan wajah penasaran sambil tangannya memegang susu dan roti kesukaan saya.Oh, kini saya tahu, tidak ada orang yang pernah mencintai saya lebih dari dia mencintai saya.
Itulah cinta, di saat kita merasa cinta itu telah berangsur-angsur hilang dari perasaan kita, karena kita merasa dia tidak dapat memberikan cinta dalam wujud yang kita inginkan, maka cinta itu sesungguhnya telah hadir dalam wujud lain yang tidak pernah kita bayangkan sebelumnya.Seringkali yang kita butuhkan adalah memahami wujud cinta dari pasangan kita, dan bukan mengharapkan wujud tertentu.Karena cinta tidak selalu harus berwujud "bunga"."

PPSMI- tak hilang hebat Melayu bila petah berbicara inggeris

The teaching of science and mathematics in English (PPSMI) implemented in 2003 replaced Malay and other ethnic languages as the medium of teaching instruction for science and mathematics subjects in primary (elementary) and secondary (high) school level. It is set for a final decision after long reassessment and repeated delay, with influential lobby groups at the center stage aimed to appeal to the Ministry of Education to revert to the previous policy of teaching science and mathematics subjects in Malay and other ethnic languages. Their main argument has been to preserve the relevance of ethnic languages especially the preeminence of Malay language as the national language in the age of rapid globalization.
We may rightly ask why there is still such great resistance 6 years after its implementation. Besides, Ministry of Education has clearly stipulated the objectives of PPSMI in raising future competitiveness of students and the nation overall.
PPSMI have focused on the superiority of the English language as it is an international language and a tool for science, technology and business. Academic literature and scientific reports are mostly written in English. With the popularity of the Internet, it is in the interest of Malaysians to be fluent in English. Malaysians benefited from learning English without left any inches of our mother tongue. Many rural Malays, Chinese, Indian and other ethnics benefited from having a good command of English We cannot make the excuse to abolish PPSMI due to poor English competence among the teachers. So Mathematics and science should be taught in English no matter how hard it may be to teach our children, we must execute it so that they will be more competitive internationally in the future.
Ethnic Malay student delivered a blunt critique that more time is needed to judge the progress of PPSMI and it should not be construed as neglecting the significance of Malay language. Are we denying the fact that most science books are in English? We are still teaching Malay language and ethnic languages in History, Geography, and Islamic study and not to mention all the elective subjects. PPSMI does not negate the status of the Malay language but will ensure that the young can compete globally. PPSMI was needed so that students could grasp the concept of subjects in an international language. It will facilitate learning of science and technology as 90 percent of information on science and mathematics is in English.
2007 first group of student had taken SPM (Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia) trough PPSMI result show incrase espcially on maths and science subject.
Director of Education Department Johor, Ramlan Sariman,said to Utusan Malaysia
“mata pelajaran Biologi menunjukkan peningkatan kelulusan sebanyak 4.87% (91.45%-96.32%), Matematik Tambahan 6.81% (68.61%-74.76%), Fizik 8.76% (94.87%-97.63%), Matematik 1.04% (77.61%-78.65%) dan Sains Tambahan 4.29% (86.25%-90.54%), sekaligus membuktikan bahawa bahasa perantara bukan penghalang dalam kejayaan dalam pelajaran peringkat menengah.”
2008, 518,616 primary (elementary) pioneer student of PPSMI seat the UPSR. They have option to anwser in malay, english, chinese or Tamil or more than one language.
13 November 2008 – Berita Harian
Chief Director of Malaysia Education, Datuk Alimuddin Mohd Dom reported said,
“ keputusan rasmi dilaporkan mencatatkan hasil yang menggalakkan dari segi penggunaan Bahasa Inggeris dalam matapelajaran sains dan matematik. 159,234 orang murid (31% dari keseluruhan pelajar) menjawab kertas Sains dalam bahasa Inggeris sementara untuk kerta Matematik, bilangannya adalah 238,153 orang (46%).
Para pelajar diberi pilihan menjawab soalan Sains dan Matematik dalam Bahasa Malaysia, Inggeris, Cina atau Tamil atau lebih dari satu bahasa.
When a contentiously protracted education decision is no longer strictly an education issue, it blows up to the center stage with strong public debate and protest. I think it is another cynical move by the group of people who have a personal advantage to erode the trust of the people, especially the Malays, by picking up and sponsoring the issues to portray mass dissatisfaction of public against the present government. They do not have the genuine interest of the people in mind. They are contemptuously selfish and concerned only with their own agenda in gaining power. Knowing very well that issues such as National Language could be a good area to sow the feeling of discord, they therefore strategically pushed the panic button amongst Malays with ludicrous statistics of poor showings of rural Malay students in the said subjects putting the blame squarely on the language policy. But the fact remains that the rural Malay students are generally weak in these subjects even when they were taught in Bahasa Malaysia. Education Ministry must continue current policy to teach math and science in English for the benefit of our children and also please let parents themselves decide what is best for their children and not those bahasa activist goons.
Teaching of Science and Mathematics in English has been politicized by the very unethical group of individuals. They claimed that pupils are not able to learn well in English! Give our kids an early and more exposure to English. It’s only 2 subjects in English and not the whole syllabus. Think of it as an alternative common language to strengthen the unity among fellow Malaysian. We still have BM as our national language. The bottom line is, we still need to learn English. So, why not kill 2 birds with 1 stone?
I say parents must have confidence in their kids and motivate them to excel in their studies. No need to oppose something which is good in the long run.
Views from public:Mr. Poobalan, an online social activist supported the move for the Indian community but with a special condition: Proponents of Tamil as the medium can argue that materials are available in Tamil, and the possibility of those subjects being taught by non-Tamil teachers. However, I think a clause can be included that the teachers of Science and Math must be bilingual so that when necessary the teachers can provide explanation in either Tamil or English.Parents and students of various ethnic backgrounds highlighted here are fairly supportive of PPSMI, but is it a bias that because they are proficient in English? What about those from rural community who are struggling with English and whose opinions are not represented at all in social media platform?
As the core argument revealed from above, it incessantly centers on the debates of ethnic language and cultural preservation, future competitiveness for students and the nation, along with implementation obstacles and recommendations. So the title sums up the dilemma here, does globalization progress can only be attained at the expense of our unique ethnic identity in a multi-ethnic country?
Ajiz7 said, If there is a choice, most would want their kids to master English. If there are English medium schools, most middle class parents would send their children there because they understand the advantage of English. If a child is taught well from young, while he may not turn out to be a linguist, his mastery of the language would be sufficient to put him at an advantageous position. The problem is not the medium of instruction. A lot of it lies in the quality of instruction which points directly to the teachers. Get it right at the basic level i.e. train competent teachers) and probably the rest of the problems will slowly ease away. It will take time but it can work.
Memorandum from UNESCO (1951:691) said: (On educational grounds we recommend that the use of the mother tongue be extended to as late a stage in education as possible. In particular, pupils should begin their schooling through the medium of the mother tongue, because they understand it best and because to begin their school life in the mother tongue will make the break between home and school as small as possible.)
Due to the nature of the country, nobody will be 100% satisfied with the way things are done. None of us can say if teaching Science/Mathematics in English is a bad thing because the current crop of students is still undergoing the change. The results may only be evident when they graduate university, 10 years later.
While "content" is more important than the language it is delivered in, there is no denying that for science based courses, English is the "lingua franca" and the students will have to face this fact sooner or later. If the students are not taught these things at the primary level, they are going to either face it at the secondary or tertiary level, at the latest. If we wait till they reach university to expose them to it, they will all end up like the current crop of graduates, who are forced to study their textbooks with a dictionary at their side, graduate without a useful command of the language, resulting in difficulty securing jobs inside and outside the country.
If we decide to expose them to it at the secondary level, it may be even more difficult than the primary level. By this time, all the basics are already formed. In secondary school, the students also need to deal with a much heavier load and are exposed to a larger number of subjects. I don't see how it will actually help to switch them over at the secondary level in English, instead of the primary level.
At the primary level, yes, the child will suffer initially and may not do very well at school. So, the parents are unable to brag about their child's accomplishments and may need to coax the child a bit more. But kids at that age are very resilient and quick learners. They will be able to adapt and learn things faster at this level. They also have less of a work load to deal with at this level. Let the kids suffer a little when they are small. Which employer actually asks you for your primary school results anyway? Build up a solid foundation at this level and then things will be much easier for them at a later stage. It would also give them 6 extra years of "usage", which may help in communication.
The Gerakan Mansuhkan PPSMI (GMP) is truly a one of a kind group of people.
These opponents of PPSMI are mostly those who were educated in the English medium i.e. in senior Cambridge, MCE, and etc. Despite their educational background (they spend their school life in the English medium) they remain passionate about Bahasa Melayu and this proves that regardless what language one chooses to adopt as his medium, he can remain patriotic to his national language.
Gapena and former DBP stalwarts who are leading the GMP should accept much blame for the need to resort to study the two subjects in English as there are insufficient translated works. If they had not been busy playing politics and instead focus on
translating those Mathematics and Science books into Malay, the necessity to revert to English for the two subjects would have been diluted. These people need to answer about this ineptitude first and foremost before launching themselves into this lose-lose situation.
In my opinion, ever since national schools were fully converted into Malay medium, Malay students sent abroad to study Mathematics and Science related disciplines failed to be outstanding at least in their first year which was spent to understand the terms and jargons in English. If Malays are to progress in a global environment, they have to master Mathematics and Science-related disciplines and not Arts and Social Sciences, which incidentally the disciplines of most of those in the GMP. Hence, I am skeptical whether these people would be empathetic with the situation faced by the Science students.
The question is, how long are the Malays going to try to make everything easy for their children? Surely a bit of a struggle makes them tough by introducing PPSMI. Why are we pampering our children so much? Or are we actually trying to pamper the teachers and the people in DBP? Are they burdened with too much work? Is teaching Mathematics and Science that difficult for the teachers? Is translating English books to Malay an extremely arduous task? The reason why not many scientific books were translated from English into Malay was precisely because there is lack of people in DBP that could understand the scientific terms in English.
Furthermore, when PPSMI was introduced, the national schools were at its lowest ebb with non-Malays preferring vernacular schools. By introducing PPSMI back in 2002, the national schools were selling a new packaging which was supposed to be more appealing to the less chauvinist non-Malays. Did we not hear all the calls by parents that the level of education in Malaysia is deteriorating? Are the people in GMP having the same aspirations with the parents? Arguments those countries like Japan and Korea had done well in fields of Mathematics and Science is not a comparison as their nations which included their advanced status in the two fields had allowed them to progress while sticking to their national language. Eventually, they had become a strong nation which could glorify and protect their own language.
Lately, even this seems to have saturated as these nations are scrambling to push their people to adopt English once again especially in the two fields. In a matter of year’s time, China for instance, will become the biggest country in the world which has English as a speaking language.
Comparatively, Malaysians are more in demand than Indonesians or Thais in the international market merely because they speak English. But that had only confined them in the service industry and menial tasks. With their command of the language in the Science and Mathematics, they will be highly in demand for the more advanced technological field. It has only been 6 years since the policy was introduced. Give it a chance to flourish. As it is, it had not caused any damage to the students. It is more ethical for the people in DBP to support PPSMI than to be against it. For the pride of the national language, they should work hand in hand with the government on how to improve the PPSMI approach. Not to be against it totally. They need to push the teachers to be more dedicated and hardworking so that they will become proficient enough to teach in English. To protect a national language, one has to be strong enough to do that.
In the time of the Malacca Sultanate, Malay was the lingua franca of the region because they were a successful race, capable of standing on their own.
How did they become successful so that Malay became the lingua franca? By being leaders in the economy, being able to gain knowledge by studying books from other civilizations. They learned other languages to gain the upper hand in commerce at that time. Malay language did not become lingua franca overnight. It became the lingua franca just because the people who spoke the language became great.
What good is the national language if the knowledge pool of the people is diminishing? What good is the national language if the DBP could not even perform their task to quickly translate English books into Malay? In my opinion, GMP is just trying to cover up their own weaknesses.
Months of debate on the teaching of Science and Mathematics in English (PPSMI) have not yet led to any decision by the Education Ministry. Should it continue teaching the subjects in English or revert to the use of Bahasa Malaysia as was the case prior to 2003?
It is relevant to review the arguments that have been tendered for and against PPSMI.
Sadly, the voices of those against PPSMI have not often been heard. There is the argument that PPSMI is contrary to the national language policy as enshrined in the Constitution and education acts, a view voiced by intellectuals and linguists even before the implementation of PPSMI in 2003.Others have said that by refusing to use Bahasa Malaysia in the teaching of Science and Mathematics, we are eroding the potential for Bahasa Malaysia as a language of science and academia. It cannot be denied that Bahasa Malaysia needs to be developed rather than marginalized. Creating Bahasa Malaysia terms for Science and Mathematics, as is necessary if the two subjects are taught in Bahasa Malaysia, is one way to enrich the language. So let us not hasten to dismiss the Bahasa Malaysia champions as ultra-nationalists. Rather, they should be lauded for pushing for the language to be enhanced. Of greater concern is the simplistic tendency to accuse them of politicizing the issue or that they are being used. In the end, nothing will progress.
Benefits of mastering the English language don't just come in the form of money or numbers. Mastering English opens one to a whole new world of knowledge previously researched by people from all around the world. This is so because English is the lingua franca of the world; many publications, discoveries and ideas from various countries will certainly be published in English.
However (The Star online 8 July 2009)said, The Cabinet decided on Wednesday that Mathematics and Science will be taught in Bahasa Malaysia and vernacular languages in stages from 2012 onwards. Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, who announced this, however, said more emphasis would be placed on learning English.
Allah know best.
