Aim Greater, Achive Higher

30 October 2009, 8.00 am

I feel some kind of a little bit misery for these two or three days. It is all because of rapid change in time and temperature in Jordan. Thought that I don't need to comment on weather here. It was discussed by my friends on facebook.. ym.. and also their blogs.

Read to know how is the weather. haha~ :
these are my friend's blog.. pinjam kejap bro.

Ok. Thinking about winter is coming, I realise that i've been in Jordan for more than one month.
Glad to say that I finally able to adapt the environment here. ~Actually cannot stand much to cold.
Lectures are in control.
Food and drinks are settled everyday.
Thanks to my house mates who always not forget to cook regularly, Zakiy, Salam and Amirun. Lucky to have you guys as great house mates. Ni calon-calon suami mithali. Insha Allah.. ~promote kat blog.

But there is still one big problem. Think that all people will experience it.

Internet addiction.

Honestly, I can't really concentrate  while studying at home. Internet becomes a monstrous thread. Haha..
But I want to get infos.. read newspaper.. connecting with people..

You know how its feel when we start surfing. Merely unstoppable. Especially when first time internet was set up at home. Hehe.. reminder for friends those who recently got their Orange modem set up.
-Orange is a famous the provider for internet in Jordan, up to 8mb/s.

internet.. everything is within your eye grasp.

So.. don't be spoiled by this accommodation. Use it wisely. There is time to enjoy. But there is time when we need to struggle.

"Success is for the one who is willing to pay the price," I repeated this quote to quiet number of people.

I remember, once my senior here, Ahmad Syahmi Yahya and Tuan Ahmad Zulkarnain said:
"Tanggunjawab utama manusia di atas muka bumi ini ada tiga:
  1. khalifah
  2. abid
  3. daie
Jika satu ditinggalkan maka hancurlah kehidupan."

Hence, should us revise back our goal for this life. Our niat.

عَنْ أَمِيْرِ الْمُؤْمِنِيْنَ أَبِيْ حَفْصٍ عُمَرَ بْنِ الْخَطَّابِ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُ قَالَ : سَمِعْتُ رَسُوْلَ اللهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم يَقُوْلُ : إِنَّمَا اْلأَعْمَالُ بِالنِّيَّاتِ وَإِنَّمَا لِكُلِّ امْرِئٍ مَا نَوَى . فَمَنْ كَانَتْ هِجْرَتُهُ إِلَى اللهِ وَرَسُوْلِهِ فَهِجْرَتُهُ إِلَى اللهِ وَرَسُوْلِهِ، وَمَنْ كَانَتْ هِجْرَتُهُ لِدُنْيَا يُصِيْبُهَا أَوْ امْرَأَةٍ يَنْكِحُهَا فَهِجْرَتُهُ إِلَى مَا هَاجَرَ إِلَيْهِ

On the authority of Omar bin Al-Khattab, who said : I heard the messenger of Allah PHUB say: "Actions are but by intention and every man shall have but that which he intended. Thus he whose migration was for Allah and His messenger, his migration was for Allah and His messenger, and he whose migration was to achieve some worldly benefit or to take some woman in marriage, his migration was for that for which he migrated."

Hadis ini adalah salah satu hadis utama dalam Islam.
Hadis pertama dari himpunan Hadis 40 susunan Imam Nawawi.
It's really meaningful.

If we greatly aim to be a good house mate.. then we'll surely strive for that.
If we greatly aim to be a good friend.. then we'll surely strive for that.
If we greatly aim to be a good student.. then we'll surely strive for that.
If we greatly aim to be a good son or daughter.. then we'll surely strive for that.
If we greatly aim to be a good khalifah.. then we'll surely strive for that.
If we greatly aim to be a good abid.. then we'll surely strive for that.
If we greatly aim to be a good daie.. then we'll surely strive for that.

If we greatly aim to achieve something.. then we'll surely strive for that!!
Bukan hangat-hangat tahi ayam.

But also, if we greatly aim to achieve something bad.. then we'll surely strive for that.
Believe it.

So, focus on your aim. Especially in study..

Above all, we must have someone or something to always reminds us to constant in your way. Istiqamah wa sabit fi kulli 'amal.

As my former and always my arabic language muallim, Ustaz Zawawi Al-Kelantani said,
"Duduk kat Jordan jangan lupa cari usrah atau berpakat dengan rakan-rakan untuk ingat-mengingati. memang semua orang fikir hidup di universiti masing-masing punya hal. Nafsi-nafsi.. Yes, betul. Tapi memang terbukti nafsi-nafsi tu la yang sedang merosakkan students Malaysia especially yang kat oversea. Banyak yang hanyut dan lupa serta lalai".

Sekadar renungan bersama.

What we aim and think will interpret our brain. Then it will be translated through our action.

'akal controls everything..

Empower Knowledge

22 October 2009, 3.00 pm

"Read! In the name of your god who has created (all that existed). Has created man from a clot (a piece of thick, coagulated blood). Read! And your God is the Most Generous. Who has taught (the writing) by the pen (the person to write was Prophet Idris). Has taught man that which he knew not."
-Surah Al- 'Alaq 1-5.

I started my post this time with the first 5 verses of Quran which was taught to our prophet Muhammad S.A.W. Urged people to do one vital thing in life, that is READ.

What with reading? Ada apa dengan membaca?

Knowledge! Of course..

The modern world nowadays is moving fast. Competition is extremely high between scholars. Hence, those person with more knowledge and thoughts will have greater chance to conquer all the chances. Today, with a glimpse of time, a businessman can conducts a meeting without moving out from his office. Seems impossible but that's the reality recently.

So, are we ready for this phenomenon?

"Wandepet-wandepet kami tatang.. mebantu anak-anak dadam ketutatan.." budak kecik. Tak tahu abc. Masih lagi telor berbicara tapi benda selalu dia belajar lagu wonderpet.

"Weh.. kreko baru da keluar dowh~ Siot laa.. tak de duit la time-time ni.." remaja-remaja. Tahu baca majalah-majalah hiburan. Sanggup berhabis-habisan sebab komik. Siap boleh buat koleksi lagi tu.

"Ish.. tak minat la nak baca buku-buku lain. Bukan masuk exam pon," pelajar-pelajar. Still don't concern about extra knowledge.

"No time. Banyak kerja. Anak bini lagi nak settle," orang-orang agak tua.. Sudah cukupkah ilmu di dada?

That's all excuses we heard when talking about reading.

Just for comparison..

In 2001 survey, Mainichi Shinbunsha newspaper in Japan stated that 60% respondents read books and 80% read magazines.
Generally, Japanese read two books per month.

In 1998, The Canadian Statistics Homepage showed that 82% and 71% Canada's total population read newspaper and magazines respectively. 61% Canadians read books and majority read at least a book per month.


In 1996, The National Library survey stated that Malaysians only read two books a year statistically! their favourite reading materials were newspapers, books, magazines and comics.

Plus, Unesco statistics showed that from 1998 to 2001, only 191 books had been translated into Bahasa Malaysia here, compared to 19,844 translated into Japanese in Japan!

See.. that why we are still lag behind both two countries until now. Don't mention United States population.. their reading rate is obviously far ahead us, Malaysians.

This thing came to my mind when I was searching for books at library in JUST. Lot of them are in arabic. Wondering how easy for me to read books in Malaysia. Terasa rugi tak bawa banyak-banyak buku dari Malaysia.

But I feel quiet satisfied to find a precious book, The International Jew. Recommended by Dr Azzam Tamimi, a British Palestinian activist, currently director of Institute of Islamic Political Thought in London during his visit to  Malaysia for Konvensyen Berakhirnya Agenda Zionis which I attended couple of months ago. Maybe I'll write some about it in next post.

Pesan saya, banyak-banyaklah membaca.

"An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest."
-Benjamin Franklin, US author, diplomat, inventor, physicist, politician & printer.

most of the books are in arabic..

lots of interesting books but quiet don't understand to read. hehe..

Cerita dari Seberang

18 October 2009, 2.30 pm.

I feel quiet tired today. After playing basketball for the whole morning with my seniors an friends at JUST gymnasium yesterday, i can't barely move my body perfectly. Da tua kot aku ni..

Came back early from university, i opened up nst online and berita harian online. Hope to read some good news. Just to relax my mind. Then, i was attracted to this article:

Populariti Mahmud Abbas menurun 12.1 peratus, Fatah kekal popular at Berita Harian Online

Hmm.. Palestine just over the province of Jordan. Sebelum menjejakkan kaki di Jordan, saya telah beberapa kali ditakutkan oleh cerita-cerita orang yang mengatakan Jordan pon tidak selamat. Konon-konon ada la tempias perang dari Palestine. Ada juga yang memuji-muji penghijrahan saya ke Jordan.

"Wah, bolehlah anta syahid fi sabilillah kalau pergi perang di Palestine!" one of my friends said. 

Masha Allah, jauh benar niat saudara saya itu. Haha.. nak tergelak pon ada juga. I came here for study not to be a unofficial recruit to bomb Israel. Tapi tahniah juga kepada beliau yang memang sedar akan keadaan saudara-saudara kita di negara bergolak di sana. Alhamdulillah suasana masih aman setakat ini di Jordan.

"And it does not beseem the believers that they should go forth all together; why should not then a company from every party from among them go forth that they may apply themselves to obtain understanding in religion, and that they may warn their people when they come back to them that they may be cautious?" At-Taubah 9:122

In Malay :

"Dan tidaklah (betul dan elok) orang-orang yang beriman keluar semuanya (pergi berperang); oleh itu, hendaklah keluar sebahagian sahaja dari tiap-tiap puak di antara mereka, supaya orang-orang (yang tinggal) itu mempelajari secara mendalam ilmu yang dituntut di dalam ugama, dan supaya mereka dapat mengajar kaumnya (yang keluar berjuang) apabila orang-orang itu kembali kepada mereka; mudah-mudahan mereka dapat berjaga-jaga (dari melakukan larangan Allah)." At-Taubah 9:122 

Back to the article written in Berita Harian, 

Ketika ditanya sama ada rakyat negara itu siapa yang akan mereka undi dalam pilihan raya presiden yang diadakan tahun depan, Mahmud Abbas mendapat undian yang sama dengan Perdana Menteri Hamas, Ismail Haniya dan pemimpin Fatah, Marwan Barghuti yang ketika ini dipenjarakan seumur seumur hidup di penjara Israel.

Berdasarkan kaji selidik itu, ketiga-tiga mereka akan memperoleh undian antara 16 hingga 17 peratus.

Sementara itu, Parti Fatah mendapat 40 peratus undi berbanding Hamas yang hanya memperoleh 18.7 peratus bagi pilihan raya umum 2010 negara itu, di mana kebanyakan mereka lebih cenderung ke arah parti Mahmud Abbas. - AFP

After reading this article, i remembered my simple chat with my Palestinian friend, Umar the other day. He talked  a lot about Palestine nowadays. About Fatah and Hamas obviously. 

You see.. it is quiet same with our own country politics crisis. UMNO and PR, much more to think with PAS actually. It's all because of political idea and understanding. Talking honest, i'm not feel to get really into politics but politics rules government. Mahu tidak mahu sesiapa yang ingin memimpin bangsa perlu bergiat dalam politik. But after that, it depends on us where to guide our people..

to mardhatillah or 'azabillah..
to husnul khatimah or su'ul khatimah..

My advice, janganlah dengan perbalahan melalaikan kita sehingga terlupa akan musuh yang sentiasa mengintai di balik kerekahan hubungan kita. I'm not dare to see our whole ummah to like what happen in Palestinien right now. They are divided apart into different ideologies meanwhile Israel is seeking for chances to rip them out.

Hope we'll have our ultimate victory soon. It's time for us to stand up. For ummah and Islam.. Takbir!!

Biologiya 'Amiah 'Amali

13 October 2009, 11.15 pm.

Today is my 2nd second class for Biology Practical. Memang saya teruja untuk pergi ke lab. Reasons:

1. First time pakai lab coat di university. Actually, never wore one during school time. School punya lab memang tak official. Hehe..

2. Last time punya kelas memang interesting. With lecturer yang understanding and supportive. Plus, arab people yang sporting abes satu kelas.

3. Today experiment is investigating animal cell. plant cell and paramecium. Animal and plant cells tu memang dah tak heran dah. But paramecium is a new one. Mana ada tengok time sekolah dulu.

I was quiet late this morning. I just arrive at lab 1 couple minutes before class started. Phew, it was all because the long physics class before Biology Practical. Running to lab made me panting..

Masuk2 kelas je.. Semua syabab2 and akhawat2 arab tepuk2 tangan plus bersorak-sorak.
"Faiq.. Faiq.. Huun.. Huun..," Ahmad, member baru kenal last week panggil. Means "Faiq.. Faiq.. Sini..Sini.."

Confused... Diorang ni nak kenakan aku ke? Astagfirullah.. Su'u zan betul.

When doing second task, observing animal cell, we were told to scratch some of our cheek cell. I took some of my cheek cell. But after observing through microscope, the cells seem quiet small but very clear.. Something wrong i guest..

When my lecturer, Dr Maryam took a look at our sample she praised our slide (we're doing this in group of four),
"This is the best slide i see. Welll done. Who's sample is this?"

"Faiq's doctor.. Malaisie's sample," Muhammad said, one of my group member. Pulak dah.. Tak payah la cakap sample sape..

"Mabruk Faiq.. I'm very proud of you. It's the best i've seen". I'm blushed..

Today is one of my best day at JUST ever. Seronok.. Seronok.. Hope tomorow will be better.
Post ini tidak bermaksud untuk bangga and showing. Just for motivation. At least for myself.. Hehe..
"Fazakkir.. Inna zikra tanfau'l mukminin".

first time pakai lab coat..

my lab group. muhammad, amjad, aku n ahmad..

kelas saqafah wa suluk jamai'ie.. mush fahim..

seat aku sebelah zalame in english class.

MHS,Jordan and Bagan Pinang,Malaysia

Sunday, 11 October 2009

I went to Minggu Haluan Siswa (MHS) held by Majlis Perwakilan Pelajar Malaysia Jordan (MPPM) from Thursday, 8 Oct to Saturday,10 Oct. It was very exhausting due to packed schedule. Yet, I profited my time by digesting all the speeches n contents by every slots. Insya Allah.

After MHS we had majlis hari raya Persatuan Mahasiswa Irbid (PERMAI). Seems like dah terlambat but it was still great with awesome performances.

My objective for the program, change into better siswa:
"Verily Allah will never change the condition of a people until they change change themselves" Ar-Ra'd:11 

Current issue in Malaysia, today:
PORT DICKSON: Balloting for the Bagan Pinang by-election began as soon as polling centres opened at 8am.

Slight drizzle failed to dampen spirit of voters and supporters who lined the streets leading to the eight polling stations. However, the rain became heavier by 9am and large numbers of voters were stuck in traffic jams.

When the rain subsided after half an hour, the voters began flooding the polling centres.

Most of the 13,664 voters (except 4,604 postal voters) were expected to cast their votes early to elect a new state assemblyman to replace Azman Mohammad Noor of Barisan Nasional (BN) who died on Sept 4.

Candidates are:
1. Tan Ssi Mohd Isa Abdul Samad  - BN
2. Zulkefly Mohamad Omar           - PAS

We'll know the result earliest by 8 pm.

1st day.. kena pakai blazer.

before majlis raya start.

my baju raya this year. hadoih terpilih kaler jambu..

An Inconvenient Truth


Truth is always doubted..
Truth is always being rejected..
Rather it takes time to accepted..

Why human always being so stubborn? It was recorded, long ago when the first ever human Adam was created, he woke up earlier before his 'ruh' (soul) was completely inserted in the 'jasad' (body).
See, human are really too hasty and selfish. Thinking they right on whatever they do.

In this post, I want to emphasize about a fact that all of us should be bear of..
Global Warming.. n our world is continuously hurt.
That's the truth. Seems inconvenient to some materialistic people but it actually is.

The prophet Muhammad (Pbuh) told us, "If any Muslim plants any plant and a human being or an animal eats of it, he will bw rewarded as if he had given that much in charity." (Sahih Al-Bukhari)

I read a book entitled "An Inconvenient Truth" by Al Gore, former US President.
An Inconvenient Truth ultimately brings home Al Gore's persuasive argument about global warming as a political issue when all the world are still don't put attention on it years ago.

This is a very extrovert mind by Gore that makes a real movie by Paramount Classics and Participant Productions, directed by Davis Guggenheim. This movie featured Al Gore as one of the character. An Inconvenient Truth won Oscar for Best Documentary.

Take a look at the awesome trailer of the movie:

Pride Causes Us Torn Apart


This incident won’t be forgotten. It happened yesterday, 9th October. It was the starting point when I fully changed my paradigm towards people, straight forward I say especially the arabs. Bunch of people we heard are well known for their Islamic based lifestyle. Sigh.. that’s actually WAS..

Besides the perfection there’s always the slack one.

Besides the good one there’s always the bad one.

Besides the angel there’s always the demon.

That’s human norm. But I can’t accept it when people dumbly, sarcastically make laugh of others. Even they’re said as the chosen race. Quoted many times in Al Quran. Well.. of course it is a majestic thing. Masha Allah.. But, what is the quality in yourself that can be proud of?




NO! There’s neither one.. Then stop acting as all of you are praised people. Only the one who follow the path of Muhammad S.A.W and what are taught in Al Quran will deserved that.

Actually I got into a quarrel with about 5 young arabs yesterday. Their attitude burnt me up. They were throwing tomatoes to us, Malaysians in the kebab as we were eating on table next to them. How rude to do that to people we don’t know, especially us as their guests in mission to learn from their people. Kita pon tak ada lah main baling-baling durian ke.. betik ke.. kat tourist yang datang ke Malaysia walau tak suka pon.

Reasons they did that? Ntah, kami makan je kat situ. Gilo kot budak-budak ni.

I looked at them as I finally got mad. Asked, “Shu biddak?” (What you want)

Then, semua buat muka blur, “Aasif-aasif” (sori-sori).

Then, they did that again. Aasif kepala hotak diorang.. Malas aku nak layan.

I’m not emphasizing about Malaysians or Jordanians but scope which is being highlighted here is we are Muslims. (don’t know if youngsters yesterday semuanya bukan Islam. Hard to tell that here. Semua sama.) Kapir kot. Perangai dah gitu.. Marah ar ni.

Yeah, we are Muslims, supposed to respect and help each others,

“The Believers, men and women, are protectors one of another: they enjoin the ma`roof (all of Islam), and forbid the munkar (all that is evil; kufr): they observe regular prayers, pay Zakat, and obey Allah and His Messenger. On them will Allah pour His mercy: for Allah is Exalted in power, Wise.” (The Holy Qur’an, 9:71)

Actually I’ve been told by seniors not to underestimate them at first time. Don’t expect they are all good. Everywhere is the same. Now, I’ve understand what’s that mean by experiencing it on my own. I’d only met some good people before. Never this type.. It was really troublesome.

No wonder la their neighbor, Palestine doesn’t get much benefit on their relationship. Long ago respectful, humble arabs are continuously perishing drastically. Honest to say, I only get a little bit slight respect for them at this moment. Maybe only for the siqah arabs left. Others.. sama je macam penyangak kat Malaysia.. Mencemarkan nama baik bumi Syam sungguh. Because of their undeserved prides we, Muslims are now fall apart.

The Israeli for example, have been taking lessons on what they had done hundreds, maybe thousands years ago. Now, they are striving. Why we, Muslims should completely fall before once again we stand? Enough by just looking the recent condition. Our brothers at some part of world are quiet pathetic. Act before we are paralyzed.

see for yourselves. sampah bertaburan di mana-mana..

my study table. serabut..
