Renew Our Faith

{ Posted on Monday, August 24, 2009 by Sadid }

Faith is definitely something that we can't see, but we believe in our hearts and we act accordingly through our senses for it.

Do you guys still remember what you guys ate last weekend? I bet there most of us forget about it already and you know what, we can actually see the food that we ate. But what about heaven, hell, angels, devils, sins and the list just goes on and on. Surely there is a tendency for us to forget about it right? So what can we do about it? Now, that is something nice to talk about. Discuss it with your friends, as you talk more about it, you'll remember more on it.

Please don't see this as a small matter. You know what, even the Prophet himself asked the sahabat to renew their faith [which we know 10 of them are guaranteed heaven by Allah], but still they are reminded to renew their faith. What about us? Who commits sins as a daily routine without noticing it. We seriously need to do something about this. So in this holy month of Ramadhan, I would like invite all to increase and renew our faith.

-May Allah guides us all in His path-

Learn from your mistakes

{ Posted on Friday, August 21, 2009 by Sadid }

It is just human to make mistake, but repeating the mistake is just plain stupid.

Well, you know what, sometimes we commit mistakes by accident. we do need to feel wrong about it and always remember not to repeat it.

Within the last 3 days, I was caught driving fast. The policeman was giving out info on the summons, but then the situations change and I don't even notice it. The policeman was like "tengah panas-panas ni, awak nak tolong saya berapa?". I don't quite understand, so I show him my wallet. Then he was like asking for RM20, so I gave it to him as I was really panic at that time. Then he was like "jangan la tinggi-tinggi sangat [while I gave him the money] , ingat nak beli ayam ke? ". It was really a relieve to me to get away from the mess I've done, but then it got me thinking [after my friends told me], was I paying bribe to the policeman? I really felt terrible after that, seriously. But then, what can I do? So, now I know how the system works, hopefully that I won't do the same thing again. Damn that police.

So its fine when you do wrong things accidentally [hope so], but then we do need to remember not to do it again and always repent on the things we've done wrong.

-May Allah forgive me and anyone who do wrong things accidentally-

Manage Your Time

{ Posted on Monday, August 17, 2009 by Sadid }

Time is a very terrible thing to waste.

I've got friends who just doesn't appreciate time like I do. So every time I set up a time for meeting or just time for us to hang around, I find it very difficult as I need to always push my schedule back to give room for my friends to wake up (if it's in the morning), pick up laundry (during the evening).

Well sometimes, these kinda situations just threw off my mood from doing anything. I know sometimes I have to be patient, but sometimes patience has it's limit (which some people are unaware of).

We do need to manage our time wisely, as the time flies, it will never come back for you. Especially for our preparation for the month of Ramadhan. We seriously don't want to waste our time doing non-sense things while we can really do "amal" as we never know that we might not see the next Ramadhan.

-May Allah grant the opportunity for us to be a better muslim this Ramadhan-

Take action, Make a change.

{ Posted on Friday, August 14, 2009 by Sadid }

I've seen lots of people these days, when they've got problems, they tend to whine about it. Complaints won't get you anywhere without action.

Recently, I've got a friend who has a problems with his time management. He keeps on complaining about the education system, about Malaysian lifestyle, but never take the action to solve the problems.

Well, we all have problems, we do need the time for us to see the problems clearly which is maybe by complaining. But after that, do take a few steps forward by thinking about the ways to handle it.

There are also people who chooses to leave it to God's will. What are you guys thinking? That action is supposed to be the last thing we do after we took action on something. We can't just leave everything to God without doing any action on something. It is just plain wrong.

So if you got problems, take action on it. There are a lots of things you can do to handle it. Get a friend involved or get a counsellor's advice. You'll get it through.

-May Allah guides us all in His path-

Being a hypocrite?

{ Posted on Wednesday, August 12, 2009 by Sadid }

I don't know about you guys, but apparently I do see hypocrite in myself or do I?

When I'm with someone important or just maybe someone older or just around good people, I tend to be good, to act accordingly with the norms around me. But then, when I'm with my friends, I tend to be who I really am (I guess), like doing things that are just nonsense.

Well yesterday, I got the honour to eat breakfast with the "Pengarah Bahagian Pembangunan Modal Insan (JPA)". During the breakfast, I really tried to be polite, eat accordingly, say opinions on issues, basically the things that I just don't do with my friends. But then, when he leaves the place, I was like "It's over, FINALLY" and I rushed to eat my breakfast. And after that, It was a briefing gave by the MAS representative. There was a problem when the slides just don't go smoothly (because of the person who looks after the slides), then I was like "AHEM!!". That is just the way I behave. I don't know why, but it is really different from the breakfast that morning.

Am I being a hypocrite? Am I true to myself? Or Am I tried to be polite or courteous? Is it just me?

What do you guys think?

See yourself first

{ Posted on Tuesday, August 11, 2009 by Sadid }

It's fun when you make fun of someone else, but then it just can get over the line sometimes.

I was playing football this evening, I've heard that the opposing team player was mocking his teammates for not playing well enough. But the thing is, he himself don't play as good, it's a good thing that there was an older friend of mine gave him a talk on how to respect others and see yourself before even saying something about someone else.

In our life, we tend to see others' weaknesses or defects rather than ours. It's just human to be like that, but still, we CAN make a difference by seeing ourselves thoroughly first before we judge anyone else, because people just don't like to be mocked and embarrassed especially by those who are just not fit to mocked them.

-may this be a reminder for me and for those who reads it-

Don't follow those who shouldn't be followed.

{ Posted on Sunday, August 09, 2009 by Sadid }

Sometimes we just simply take a person or a group of people as an example just to cover up our doings.

I have a brother, recently he keeps on saying "clown tu bodoh la, dia cakap ...(something funny I guess) ". I didn't mind him saying that, its just that I feel irritated to hear him saying it over and over again. Then I said to him " If the clown is stupid, then the person who keeps on repeating the clown's actions or words will be ......" . I left that space for him, but then he just ignores me. Maybe it's my mistake to say such a thing to a 5 years old boy.

But the thing is, there are people out there do wrong stuff and use others as a cover for them. For example, "Just throw the rubbish out of the car, that car in front of us can do it, why can't we?"

So before you take any actions, do consider everything that you're doing. Don't blindly follow others. You KNOW what's RIGHT, then DO the RIGHT thing.

How do I say it right??

{ Posted on Thursday, August 06, 2009 by Sadid }

Have you guys ever felt that you've got something to say to someone or maybe you just want to be heard, but then you just don't know how to say it (not literally but really say what you really meant) ?

I've always got this problems especially when I really need to say it right with the right words altogether, but I just don't know how to do it.

A friend told me that, if I wanna express myself, i should make a movie and show it to everyone since I can't really put in words so that I'll feel like saying "LOOK, this is what you guys think, and SEE again, this is the TRUTH". Great idea right?

What do you think?

sharing IS caring

{ Posted on Thursday, August 06, 2009 by Sadid }

"Everyone has something wonderful to share, a lesson they learned along the way about themselves or others. When we share something positive, inspiring or spiritual, we help others feel connected to us.

Well you know what? Right after my 1st post, I've been thinking, "what kinda blog is this gonna be?". Then it comes to me that I would like to make this blog as a place for me to share my experience with the world so that if I done anything wrong, (hopefully) people will learned and didn't commit the same mistakes I've done, or even if I done an extremely job well done, people just could follow my steps or just observed what I've done and have a think about it for self-improvement.

The largest room in the world is the room for self-improvement right?? At least that what I've heard before, so hopefully my experience can be a lesson for those who seeks improvement or betterment in life.


Things are just meant to be........

{ Posted on Thursday, August 06, 2009 by Sadid }

I've never planned to start blogging...but then, things are just meant to be.. So here I am...BLOGGING!!

Actually, there are more than just blogging.. In our life, there are lots of things just don't go the way we planned.. But then always look for the brighter side of it, there's got to be something better for you.

From my experience, I've been in an accident, it was not great at all, for an experience it was the "asam garam" side of life, but then when I look back at it, that accident really changed me, only after that accident I noticed that, there are people who loves me, cares about me and it made me learn to be better in life, do good things for those I love the most - my parents. It was like my second turning point in my life, so somehow, even though the things that me and my friends planned earlier (going for picnic at Tg. Malim) didn't go as we thought it would be, but then its very nice to feel the turning point in our life once in awhile.

There are also times when i was in standard 4 in Sekolah Rendah Islam ABIM Kajang, I was a very naughty boy (seriously), then I was taken to the vice-principal's office (because of attitude probs) and I was lectured quite long but it really touched my heart that I changed to be a better student especially in doing my homework and all, by looking into the bright side of it, being naughty is not a bad thing actually. It is just how I learned to be a better person. So if you see any naughty kids around you, don't worry, they'll learned someday.

If I can try to see good things in the worst situation of all... Why can't you?

May Allah be with all of us. And always be patient with this kinda situations,"sesungguhnya Allah bersama orang2 yg bersabar"
