Read and Write!

Some people may find it difficult to share their opinions, experience and even knowledge in front of the crowd, due to lacking communication skills.

Some people also may always attempt to share everything that they know either in any two ways conversation or group conversations, until they thought that it is not enough time to tell everything he/she knows.

Some people may reflect upon her/himself without letting anyone know about it, although it is actually always become the reminder for all of us.

Some people may scared to share their knowledge as they knows that he might telling a non-truth facts or story.

Some people may lack of confidence to share among the crowd about any topics.

Some people may think that they have no talent in writing.

Some people may find it hard to have time to write.

Some people...

At this point, I'm sure that the reader right now have grab the idea of what this article is about. Or... not?


Some people thought that;

Writing needs passion.

Writing need determination.

Writing need confidence.

Yes, exactly... But, at the end, you just have to write what you want to write. What you want other people also know and realise, though they already realise about it. Its okay. Just remind them.

We have learnt to write since childhood years.

"A, B, C, D, E..."

Then, we advance to a new level of writing. Writing words.

"Apple. Chicken. Table."

Later, we can eventually form sentence by those words learnt.

"I go to school. I love my mother. I miss you."

As our brain grow smarter, we learnt to form more advanced sentence.

"Now the sun has shine bright, as bright as your face when smiling."

Knowledge and experience which dwells within our heart and mind blended in together in pieces into all those writing. More writing skills acquired. and yet, always come with advices and philosophical discussions.

"When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive - to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love."

All the words might naturally comes from your heart as well as your brain.

I still remember the words from one of my friends about writing. Writing has its on balance as if it is on a double beam balance. One side require intelligence. Another one side require emotional values. The best writing should be balance between both, so that everyone can perceive and accept all the good values better as if the writer speak and whisper the advice in the mind of the reader.

This might not all about writing. This is just a small part of writing pedagogy, smaller than a droplet of ocean's water of it. The knowledge is too vast to explore. You might regret if you only gain a very, very, very small part of it.

Writing urges one to know more about something, later will know more about it.
(just like PBL, perhaps? Heh.)

You might want to refer again the tafsir of Surah al-'Alaq, especially the verse 1 to 5.

It reminds me about a story when someone meet the a Malaysian National Laureate, A. Samad Said, and ask him to teach him about writing. He said, "Read, read, read, and then write."

Read, read, read, and then write...

Only then, you will know more, and can deliver the knowledge to others.


As one find it hard to write, then, you might want to see and look upon the purpose of the writing itself. If you really write for the sake of Allah, then you should not feel it as a burden, instead you would feel this as a duty and responsibility.
