Malaysia a Christian Nation?

What do I think? What do you think I think? I am a Muslim. So again, what do you think I think? A yes? No?

Fiqh Medic

What are the legal maxims of Islamic Law (QAWA’ID FIQHIYYAH). Let's say, if a patient is having a colostomy bag (which contains his urine or feces), would the ablution be valid? How about, if a women is in labour (bear in mind that giving birth to the first child can be as long as 19hours); can she still performs Salah? (Let's find the answer here.)

Men VS Women

Let's think critically. Who is the one which better in governing this world!? Men, who have more influencing and have strong character or women, who have emotional values, and boundless cares and love?

Are You Ready to Fall in Love??

What is love to begin with? we might assume that we have that sort of wonderful love, unshakeable by no others even death. We may sacrifice anything to our beloved person. But, if we claimed that we love Rasulullah, where are the proofs? You are willing to sacrifice anything for his sake?

Does God need us?

Now, tell me, what are the differences between this human-made lego tree and the one who created by our almighty creator,our god?

Explore Yourself

The sky was the limit. Yes, this is so true given you had the funding to support yourself taking a flight to a country that held historical significances.
“So have they not travelled through the earth and have hearts by which to reason and ears by which to hear? For indeed, it is not eyes that are blinded, but blinded are the hearts which are within the breasts.”
But you can also listen from others or read to gain the knowledge and lessons. And so here is my story.


The weather looked promising. The air was cold despite the fact that the sun was shining brightly in the cloudless morning. It was as if the whole nature was giving consent towards our plan for that day. Everyone seemed psych up, ready to take up any challenges for the day.

We kicked off our day with our newly-appointed Spain-style breakfast; tuna and mayonnaise sandwiched between baguette, or any halal forms of bread. To be truthful, that was the only kind of breakfast that we could afford due to our tight budget. Alhamdulillah.

We were wandering in front of the information booth, feeling utterly disoriented. We were hoping for the slightest aspiration as where should we start our most anticipated visit. While sitting on a bench, pondering on our next plan, a man approached us. He did not look local and in fact, he was not, but a Pakistani. He greeted us with salam and put forth his suggestion for us.

“Would you pay me €20 each if I bring you for a tour around Cordova? I know that you come here not for fun, but to understand the historical significance of this place. So I’m offering you myself as a tour guide. Insha Allah you will benefit from it.” He started the conversation slowly, anticipating our response.

We hesitated, should we trust this man and fulfil the reasons why we chose cordova at the first place or should we turn him down, for the sake of being ‘prudent’ of our safety. Having considered all the pros and cons, we went for the risk.

“Salam sir, that is a really intriguing offer and we would really appreciate it if you can show us around as we ourselves are clueless of where should we start and what to look for. But you see, one of us lost her purse so €20 per person is quite expensive given now we have only small share of money for each of us…” one of my friend voice out her concern.

The man was silent for a moment before continued bargaining, “Well then, I’ll make it €15 each. How was that? Come on, don’t you want to explore this place in Islamic perspective?”

To cut the conversation short, …

“Well, why not?? Let’s go then.” We were expectedly eager and put all our faith in Him that this man, whoever he was, will not mislead us.

Okay so, I am not going to tell you everything that we did as it will make this story too lengthy and you might give up after a brief moment so I am choosing only those that I think might benefit you at the moment.

So off we start. My friends and I were walking while taking note of the pathway that we stepped on and that was when we reached a small opening in front of a small shop. The man, Ahmad, stopped and asked us what we saw along the way. We were puzzled at the moment and almost mentioned everything that we saw when he interjected our answers.

“You know, when Cordova is still ruled by the Moorish (term used for Muslims during that century), there was this dentist. Whenever he was depressed and needed to calm himself, he would walk back and forth at his patio. During his time, his house was among those that has patio and the patio was covered with the reflexology stones, like this, the ones you are standing on now.” We looked at our feet and our curiosities bloomed again. We had always wondered why the path was made that way since we first arrived at that place, what could be the significance.

"Whenever he was in his patio, he would find peace of mind and this raised query within himself. ‘What made I feel this way whenever I am here?’ And that was when he started to realise the key lied to the gravels that made up the floor of his patio.” Ahmad continued.

We just nodded in understanding, but then, why the whole pedestrian walk was made that way?

“The dentist, having a great faith in his religion, understood that as a Muslim, he needed to benefit the people around him, so he brought forward his idea to the Sultan and then the whole pathways was fitted with the gravels. Do you understand, when you realise the good of something, you should not hold it within yourself. You need to suggest it to someone, you must always think to benefit others.” We looked at among ourselves in agreement.

We continued our journey around Cordova and then came across a bridge, the Roman Bridge (during the early Islamic domination the Muslim governor Al-Samh ibn Malik al-Khawlani ordered a bridge to be built on the ruins of what was left of the old Roman construction across the Guadalquivir river).

“Observe this side of the river (where it seemed to flow towards us) and then compare it with the other side (where it flowed away from us). Then inform me of your observation.” he reckoned.

We just followed his order. “Hmmm, the water moved faster as it passed the bridge.” we stated our observation in unity.

“Yes! Exactly! Now how would you suggest for this phenomenon?” another question was being proposed on us.

We racked our brain, trying to figure out the answer in the most acceptable and intellectual thought we could muster, (well it was spring break and we (kind of) completely shut down our brains from thinking hard and this seemed to be a wrong decision.)

“Uh well the water was going through a gap, and by the law in physics, it was diffracted so perhaps that was the reason?” But then my brain told me, water lost the energy as it went through the gap, so they should not be faster. Oh well, my mouth acted faster than my brain. “Well, no. Come on, what else do you have in mind?”  After giving more and more wrong answers, he looked quite disappointed (and we were even angrier with ourselves. And you called yourselves medical students??).

Slowly he said, “Look at your right side. The flow was even faster than to the left. What structure do you notice at your right?”

“Water turbine.”

“Exactly, the flow was faster on the right side because they needed it to be so. So that the water at high speed could rotate the water mill and generate power. And how was this possible? The thing you needed to know was; it was the fact that the river was dig deeper on this side of the river (where the flow is away from us) as soon as they pass the bridge. The slope was about 45⁰. This bridge was built during the Muslim colonisation of this place and it was during the medieval age but you see, these Muslims are capable of inventing such mechanism. Islam used to be great, we pioneered in everything.”

“Sir, how do you this?”

“I just knew.”


Our heads hung low, thinking of our contributions to the world, to the Muslim world.


We tend to look thing on the surface.

Some of us might not even try to discover himself/herself deeper.

We like to stay in our comfort zone, not wishing to take the risk and truly be as what we are supposed to be, the Khalifah.

It is time to explore yourself and insha Allah, it shall never be

too late.

Devil's Trap

Fear Allah! Servants of Allah, for everything we do will be accounted for, each soul is going to come to an end at a prescribed time, and you will be dealt with according to your deeds.

O Muslims, Allah Azza Wa Tabaraka says which translates as: "O Children of Adam let not Satan tempt you, as he removed your parents from paradise, stripping them of their clothing to show them their private parts, indeed he sees you, he and his tribes, from where you do not see them. Indeed we have made the devils, allies to those who do not believe" (Al-A'raf: 27).


Shaytan is the enemy of you, the children of Adam.

We, as muslim should against the shaytan's whispers and their encouragement to lead us astray from the right path of Islam, from reaching the mardhotillah.

Allah says which translates as: " And indeed they avert them from the way of guidance while they think that they are rightly guided. The worst that the companion or the devilish companion would do is to avert someone from the truth. And not allow them to wake up to find out the truth, rather deceives him and makes him think that he is on the right path until painful fate and destiny takes him by surprise "(Az-Zukhruf: 37).

In our main reference of guidance, Al-Quran have a lot of sentences that talk about the harm of shaytan and even about how they affect the human's way of life.

Today, in our society, we could see many aftereffects of media and technology towards the way how they live. ( I mean...we.. )

the television always become the main tool to destruct the fikr (fikrah) of human being, destructing the humanity within themselves.

Murder seems as common thing in society.

Rape seems as common thing in society.

Stealing seems as common thing in society.

People get used to this kind of crime, until they lose their sensitivity over things like this.

Even those BIG crime! we saw as just as small crime... meh...

From those crime, bad attitudes, we learnt it from media, from televisions, movies, films, and such. we declared it as entertainment for us. Fulfilling our Nafs.

The warning from Shaykh Hamza Yusuf, reached us. ( from a talk conducted by Shaykh Hamza Yusuf, at Masjid Wilayah Persekutuan, Kuala Lumpur recently... )

Do we care for our children?

Do we care for our siblings? Our relative?

Why we let them, being influenced by the media and such.

Don't you know, before 18 years old, average children have already watch 160, 000 murders just from the media. (a study in United States, on 2000)

Other than this, he gave lot of others statistics to prove to us, about how the technology and media affect gradually, without no one even noticed.

Through television and films, we can see the gradual increase of 'R' rated films. the one need parental guide and such. Contains terrific violence, sadistic scene, pornographic scene and such.

Why we need to show those to human? to feed human's nafs?

And, they will say... Its for the sake of 'entertainment'.

Surely, there are limitation for the so-called 'entertainment'. They easily exceed that barrier.

Even some of the cartoons, contains a lot of violence! It really have effect towards our young children's behaviour.

Same goes to video games!


The hand sign of 'okay' which resembles the number '6' , was related to the demon curse ritual, 666.

The hand sign of 'spiderman's web' ( you know, the one when spiderman use to spread the web via his hand) , was a also a part of demon curse symbol.

The hand sign of 'peace' which said to symbolise 'V' representing victory, was just a mask.

 "V" is the Roman sign for the number five and Adam Weishaupt used it in the Illuminati to symbolise the "Law of Fives,'' but there's more.

In the Cabala:

"the meaning for the Hebrew letter for V (Van) is 'Nail.' Now, 'The Nail' is one of the secret titles of Satan within the Brotherhood of Satanism.


Last but not least,

Don't let the media control us. Influence us. Affect our mind, affect our children's mind, affect muslims' minds.

Affect everyone, or otherwise,

we have already fall into those

Devil's Trap.
