Sayangnya Allah pada Wanita

1- Wanita auratnya lebih susah dijaga berbanding lelaki.

2- Wanita perlu meminta izin dari suaminya apabila mahu keluar rumah tetapi tidak sebaliknya.

3- Wanita saksinya kurang berbanding lelaki.

4- Wanita menerima pusaka kurang dari lelaki.

5- Wanita perlu menghadapi kesusahan mengandung dan melahirkan anak.

6- Wanita wajib taat kepada suaminya tetapi suami tak perlu taat pada isterinya.

7- Talak terletak di tangan suami dan bukan isteri.

8- Wanita kurang dalam beribadat kerana masalah haid dan nifas yg tak ada pada lelaki.

Pernahkah kita lihat sebaliknya??

- Benda yg mahal harganya akan dijaga dan dibelai serta disimpan di tempat yg tersorok dan selamat. Sudah pasti intan permata tidak akan dibiar bersepah-sepah bukan? Itulah bandingannya dengan seorang wanita.

- Wanita perlu taat kpd suami tetapi lelaki wajib taat kepada ibunya 3 kali lebih utama dari bapanya. Bukankah ibu adalah seorang wanita?

- Wanita menerima pusaka kurang dari lelaki tetapi harta itu menjadi milik peribadinya dan tidak perlu diserahkan kepada suaminya. Manakala lelaki menerima pusaka perlu menggunakan hartanya utk menyara isteri dan anak anak.

- Wanita perlu bersusah-payah mengandung dan melahirkan anak tetapi setiap saat dia didoakan oleh segala haiwan, malaikat dan seluruh makhluk ALLAH di mukabumi ini dan matinya jika kerana melahirkan adalah syahid kecil. Manakala dosanya diampun ALLAH (dosa kecil).

- Di akhirat kelak, seorang lelaki akan dipertanggungjawabkan terhadap 4 wanita iaitu isterinya, ibunya, anak perempuannya dan saudara perempuannya. Manakala seorang wanita pula, tanggungjawab terhadapnya ditanggung oleh 4 org lelaki iaitu suaminya, ayahnya, anak lelakinya dan saudara lelakinya.

- Seorang wanita boleh memasuki pintu Syurga melalui mana-mana pintu Syurga yg disukainya cukup dgn 4 syarat sahaja iaitu Sembahyang 5 waktu, Puasa di bulan Ramadhan, Taat suaminya dan Menjaga kehormatannya (betulkan jika saya tersilap).

- Seorang lelaki perlu pergi berjihad fisabilillah tetapi wanita jika taat akan suaminya serta menunaikan tanggungjawabnya kepada ALLAH akan turut menerima pahala seperti pahala org pergi berperang fisabilillah tanpa perlu mengangkat senjata.

Ashoura': Insights & Reflections

By Dr. Yusuf Al-Qaradawi
President — The International Union for Muslim Scholars

Jun. 17, 2008

`Ashoura' (the tenth of Muharram) signifies a special date in the Islamic calendar. Muslims, based on the Prophet's teachings, commemorate this day by observing fast during it.

In this regard, Ibn `Abass reported that when the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) came to Madinah, he found the Jews fasting on the day of 'Ashura' (i.e. 10th of Muharram). They used to say: "This is a great day on which Allah saved Musa and drowned the folk of Pharaoh. Musa observed the fast on this day, as a sign of gratitude to Allah." The Prophet said, "I am closer to Musa than they." So, he observed the fast (on that day) and ordered the Muslims to fast on it.‏ (Al-Bukhari)

A Muslim may wonder why the Prophet observed fast on the same day as the Jews while he previously ordered the Muslims not to follow the non-Muslims.

However, anyone who has carefully studied the Hadiths concerning the fasting of `Ashura' will discover that the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) used to fast on this day even before he migrated to Madinah. The Arabs before Islam used to fast on that day and glorified it, and it was the day when they used to cover the Ka`bah. In doing so, they were following their predecessors. It is reported from `Ikramah that Quraysh committed a sin in the Jahiliyah (pre-Islamic era) and they regretted it and were sorry, so they were advised to fast that day to expiate their sin.

Thus, the Prophet neither fasted `Ashura' in accordance with the Jews nor did he started fasting it in Madinah. When He (peace and blessings be upon him) said, "We are closer to Musa than you are,", and when he fasted and ordered the Muslims to fast on that day, he was, in fact, affirming the significance of this day and delivering a message to the Jews that Allah's religion is one at all times. All the Prophets are brothers and each has contributed toward the establishment of the truth. Thus, Muslims are more entitled to follow all the previous prophets more than those who claim adherence to the prophets while they falsified their books and altered their religion.

So if the day of `Ashura' celebrates the ill fate of Pharaoh and the victory of Musa, it is also a victory for the truth; the same truth that was revealed to Muhammad and upheld by him. Since Musa (peace and blessings be upon him) fasted this day as a way of showing gratitude to Almighty Allah, the Muslims are more entitled to follow him than the Jews.

Besides, it is to be born in mind that this agreement between the Muslims and the Jews in fasting this day occurred in the early days of Muslims in Madinah. The Prophet, in fact, liked to be in line with the People of the Book in non-prohibited matters in pursuit of attracting their hearts and winning them over to his cause.

Later, when their hatred and animosity toward the Prophet and the Muslims were made manifest he ordered the Muslims not to follow them in their way of fasting. However, to keep the significance of the day, the Prophet said,

"Observe fasting on the day of `Ashura', but differ from the Jews and fast one day before it Or one day after it."


In fact, the issue we are handling had also confused the Companions of the Prophet themselves; though the Prophet was keen that the Muslims should not follow the Jews or the Christians, he observed fasting `Ashura' and ordered them to observe it. So, they said to him, as reported by Ibn `Abbas, "O Messenger of Allah, this is a day that is glorified by the Jews and the Christians." The Prophet said, "In the following year, Allah willing, I shall fast (also) on the 9th day." But the Prophet passed away before the coming of the next year.(Muslim)

Great swimming Experience

Saturday, 3rd Jan 2009....

I went to Mandurah with Kak Zie and her kids,Aunty Fauziah, Aunty Ecah, Aunty Ani and her friends and also Aunty Natiya...seems like my trip this time is full with aunty2..but somehow Kak Zie's kids (Harriz, Amira, Aisyah and Amir) and also Aunty Fauziah Nieces (Nada and Nabilah) have become a good company for me even they are younger than me...
Kak Zie pick me from my apartment at 6.30am and we went to her house in Canning Vale.Then all the aunties gather at her house and we went to Mandurah around 8.00am..arrive there at 9.00am.
Start my first experience for crabbing.unfortunately, the crabs are all smaller than the size that fishery department's limit (125cm)..so all of us decided to come again in two weeks time when all of the small crabs have been growing. but we stay at that area (if im not mistaken its Peel Region) until 2.30pm..we had lunch under the sunshed and pray along the beach.

Then we went to Mandurah North-South harbour for ice cream and coffee stop. While we were enjoying our ice cream on the so called jetty, there are few people swimming from their boat.the kids and I are interested to look at them and been impressed by how deep the water was (wondering)...they invite us to join them to swim from their boat. they are actually a group of farmers from the suburb, and one of them (an old man) own the boat.so the took new year off and spent holiday on the boat.how lucky am i that i've been invited to swim from their luxury boat!=)

I was totally enjoying my swimming experience this time!...G.R.E.A.T + S.U.P.E.R.B...I cant describe it with words! At the 1st time, I was really afraid since I didn't learn swimming from any of swimming classes or professionals...I learn how to swim from my dad when I was kid and I stop swimming for quite some time. But during this summer break, I regularly swim in my apartment's pool, so I guest that help me. As I jump from the boat, I said Bismillah...(sungguh cuak dan takut) since I never know how deep it was..I fall in the sea/water and wait for few seconds before I goes up into the surface (sedikit panik since it take longer than my usual tenggelam in the pool)..but after that, I start swimming, floating and jumping all over again with the kids and also the farmers. It wasn't that deep. Just 10 feet=3.05m, but deeper than normal swimming pool! we spend nearly one hour in the sea and I really2 glad that I enjoy it so much!

After swimming, we heading for fishing at south Mandurah and I learn how to fishing from Kak Zie. I got one herring that night. Aunty fauziah fry few crabs that we managed to catch during the morning and we eat it. delicious! she also cook some maggie mie for the kids.we went back to perth at 12.30am and i slept over at Aunty Fauziah's house that night. and go for 2more hours swimming again the next day with Nada and Nabilah at Aunty Fauziah's pool.
