IAW-the summary

Islam Awareness Week has been held from the 23rd of feb to 27th of feb…..congrats to islamic society for their hard work…

On monday afternoon there was a talk about titled ‘the 1400 year old solution to the modern day of financial crisis’…a brief explaination about the talk…the talk given was mainly about the difference between the islamic finance n conventional finance…..n what makes the islamic finance better off compared to conventional finance was the main issue talked by the speaker named Faisal Sattar…however i will combine the some of the points delivered by a talk given on sunday

The unique thing about islamic finance is that it assure a sustainable growth which contradict the conventional finance…this is because the growth is stimulated by a mechanism called interest which is completely forbidden by islam….why??because it creates more money…..economist argued that interest should be charged due to money worth more than it is now in the future…..interesting argument isnt it??unfortunately it leads to boom n burst of an economy…

why loan offered by islamic banks are more expensive compared to conventional banks??ok lets put things into perspective….islamic banks charged fixed rate of return while conventional banks charged variable rate of return….it might seemed as if we as a consumers are worse off…however islamic banks are more flexible towards payment but not conventional….due to their aims at profits they are more keen on the value of properties….to proof ley say you’ve missed the monthly payment then the next day your properties are gone

interestingly…have u ever thought that islamic banks do offer discount to be more competitive in the market?yes it does….for example the current rate of return is 10%…as the conventional banks offer 6% of rate of return…the islamic banks are giving 4% as a discount in order to be competitive….the situation is vise-versa however the islamic banks will not charged more than the maximum of 10%….so in ur opinion are we still worse off??

they are many points i would like to write about…..nevertheless it will be too long n boring i guess….heheheh

on wednesday the 25th…there was a tallk given by Idris Tawfiq….personally i love the way he delivered the speech….even the title means a lot…’Tales of traveller: my journey to islam’……what a wonderfull talk…it touches everyone’s heart i believe…

the talk was about him…how he embraces islam…from a roman catholict to a profound muslim…what an amazing journey planned by Allah for him…how Allah touched his heart just by a boy giving his greet ‘assalamualaikum’……a boy who shine shoes on street named ahmad or ali or muhammad….may Allah bless him

he was a religious man whose mother went to the church everyday….he was a man who loved by people…he loves his job as a priest n enjoy giving bless to a wedded couple…however in his heart…there was something….something that he failed to content…then the journey begun as he seek for an answer…

with a holiday cost around £115 he started his journey…he landed at egypt which he dislike the most…he whispered ‘i wanted a holiday but not in spain’….but as fated the journey continued…he went to cairo…and then back to egypt…before he departed back to the UK….he was having a drink…suddenly he heard azan…amazingly people around him left everything and straight away make their way to mosque to perform friday prayer……he whispered again ‘what kind of faith this is??’

Back in the uk, he became a religion teacher who taught GCSE and A level students….As a religion teacher he has to learn other religious such as hindunism..buddism…including islam…ramadhan came…it happened that his office was the only room with the carpet….there were few muslim students came to him and asked permission to pray in his room….with consent from the headmaster they pray in his room…during the ramadhan…gradually he started to learn about the movement in praying

with his own incentive…he went to islamic classes and talk….one day a talk was given by yusuf islam…known as cat steven a long time ago….after the talk…he asked yusuf the condition of being a muslim….at the moment he never thought of being a muslim himself………….

yusuf islam said to be a muslim u have to believe in one god…then he replied…well i do believe in one god….hurmmmm muslim has to pray 5 times a day….he replied back…i do know how to pray and even recite doa….well muslim has to fast during ramadhan….then he replied….yes i did fast one day during ramadhan…

looking straight in his eyes….yusuf islam said….’who r you trying to fool my brother?you are already a muslim’….at that moment what yusuf islam said dancing in his head…..

Maghrib came….they as they praying….he was leaning on the wall….

‘who are you trying to fool my brother?you are already a muslim’……

he cried like a baby…..his heart felt something that he never felt before….he found what he has been searching for….at that day he embrace islam n believe in one god n the only god Allah the creator….yusuf islam asked him to go back n take a shower….he said ‘feel the sin that is washed away as the water flows’…….u r the purest of all….like a born baby as all ur sin in the past has been forgiven…

from there he became a muslim….a true muslim…alhamdulillah

Salam wbt buat Ohanna Raleigh dan para pengunjung sekalian.

InsyaAllah minggu ini merupakan Islamic Awareness Week di Nottingham University. Maka Ohanna Raleigh memberikan laluan kepada aktiviti ini berlansung. InsyaAllah pada minggu hadapan Ohanna akan bersidang lagi.

Rebutlah peluang yang ada sepanjang minggu ini. Inilah antara peluang yang perlu dimanfaatkan apabila dihantar untuk belajar di luar negara. Mendengar dan menceduk sebanyak mungkin ilmu daripada orang lain untuk kita cuba bawa pulang ke negara asal kita. Rugi andai tidak pergi.

n1175722247_378033_1720

Akak mencadangkan setiap ahli Ohanna sekalian dapat menghadirkan diri sekurang-kurangnya 2 daripada talk yang dianjurkan. Pergi semua lebih baik! Namun memahami kekangan masa dan tenaga. Elok dapat dibahagi-bahagikan dan berpakat untuk hadir talk yang berbeza-beza ini. InsyaAllah nanti kita sama-sama kongsi pendapat semasa persidangan Ohanna.

Rebut peluang. Peluang untuk berukhuwah sesama sisters in Islam tidak mengira bangsa. Peluang untuk menambah ilmu daripada orang-orang hebat! Jom jangan jadi katak bawah tempurung =)

p/s: terima kasih kerana ohanna memberikan sokongan penuh dan padu buat Sountunnisa`. Lagu ditujukan khas buat anda semua OK. Next year Ohanna pula berentap memberikan mesej dan berhibur di pentas NISE. Amacam?

Ohanna Belajar Solat Sempurna

InsyaAllah pada hari Ahad 22 Februari, Ohanna akan sama-sama menghadiri Bengkel Solat Sempurna yang dikendalikan oleh UZAR. Program yang diberikan nama Perfect In Solat (PIS) ini adalah usahama Nottingham Malaysian Society (NMS) dan Nottingham Malaysian Community (NMC).

Maka sebelum kita sama-sama menghadiri program ini, saya menggalakkan Ohanna sekalian untuk membaca buku UZAR dan menyediakan soalan sebanyak mungkin bagi kemusykilan-kemusykilan yang membelenggu dalam bab solat.

Bagi menjawab soalan Su_Zul Ohanna berkaitan Tazkiyatun Nafs. Apakah tazkiyatun nafs?

Di dalam buku Purification of The Soul (tazkiyatun nafs): Concept, Process and Means oleh Jamaal al-Din M. Zarabozo ada dinyatakan maksud tazkiyatun nafs secara panjang lebar.

Dinyatakan disini ringkasan dan kesimpulan tentang tazkiyatun nafs.

The final definition of tazkiyah al- nafs of purification of the soul, which has been defined thusly: the process in which the healthy elements found in the soul are fostered, built upon and added to while any invading contaminants are removed or controlled such that the person worships Allah properly and fulfills his purpose in life, which can culminate in the ultimate expression of true ihsaan.

Jika sesiapa berminat untuk membaca lebih lanjut tentang tazkiyah al nafs maka bolehlah meminjam buku ini daripada saya. Atau dapatkan di pasaran.

Saya belum khatam lagi.

Tazkiyatun Nafs

Tazkiyatun nafs adalah proses pembersihan jiwa. Jiwa-jiwa sentiasa perlu dibersihkan. Boleh dilakukan bila-bila masa, di mana-mana sekalipun bersendirian. Sama-sama tazkiyatun nafs ye. Tidak perlu disuap, tetapi tazkiyatun nafs ini boleh diusahakan sendiri. At least selepas solat setiap hati duduk berzikir sebentar.

InsyaAllah

Perak Dan Palestin..

Assalamualaikum wbt dan salam perpaduan..

Setelah lama tidak bersua, akhirnya riuh rendah rumah 127, Faraday Road dengan suara puak O-hanna Raleigh dan kak Zaffan.. Bukan sekadar suara yang mengetuk tin kosong, tetapi penuh dengan semangat yang membara (ala-ala lagu Gemuruh gitu ^_^)..

Kali ini, membincangkan tentang ceramah Live from Gaza, Gaza:Way Ahead? dan isu semasa. Sebut soal Palestin, semua orang tahu yang penduduk peribuminya tertindas, tanah tumpah darah mereka semakin mengecil, dirampas oleh tentera Israel dengan alasan tanah itu adalah milik mereka, yang dikurniakan Tuhan kepada mereka (sedangkan pada hakikatnya, mereka adalah Atheis- tidak mempercayai Tuhan).

Dari Palestin, kami terbang ke Malaysia, tanah tempat kami dibesarkan dan di situlah, keluarga kami yang tercinta menetap pada masa ini. Apa khabar agaknya orang kampung? Apa khabar orang Perak? Mereka berjuang bersendiriankah menuntut demokrasi dari pemerintah- institusi beraja, atau adakah dibantu oleh masyarakat negeri lain?

“Dan hendaklah kamu tolong menolong melakukan kebaikan dan ketakwaan.” (al-Maidah:2)

Persamaan kisah Palestin dan Perak: hak rakyat ditindas. Perbezaannya: rakyat Palestin ditindas oleh bangsa lain namun menyokong pemimpin mereka, Hamas dengan sepenuh jiwa dan raga (jelaslah, Hamas bukan teroris!). Rakyat Perak pula ditindas oleh bangsa sendiri, umpama dipaksa menerima dua nakhoda tanpa persetujuan mereka.

Mengapa kita perlu ambil tahu hal di negeri Perak? Bukannya negeri asal kita pun.. Lagipun, lambat lagi kita nak mengundi kan.. Tak perlu sibuk-sibuk pun.. Kita kan pelajar, perlu belajar.. Jangan masuk campur hal politik.. Nanti tak pasal-pasal kena ISA..

Rasulullah saw bersabda:

 

المؤمن للمؤمن كالبنيان يشد بعضه بعضا وشبك بين أصابعه

 

Maksudnya: “Orang-orang beriman seumpama bangunan, saling menguatkan sesama mereka.” Baginda menggenggam di antara jari-jemarinya.

Tetapi, pelajar pun rakyat juga kan.. Tahukah kita hak kita sebagai rakyat? Tahukah kita yang peralihan kuasa tidak boleh dilakukan sewenang-wenangnya (termaktub dalam Perlembagaan). Perlu ada pembubaran kerajaan negeri Perak. Seperti mana pada zaman Khalifah Ali bin Abi Talib sewaktu menangani permasalahan yang timbul dengan Muawiyah. Perlu ada perletakan jawatan kedua-dua pemimpin dan pilihanraya perlu diadakan semula untuk memilih pemimpin. Hak memilih perlu diberi kepada rakyat.

Persoalan yang timbul, mungkinkah dugaan Allah yang diturunkan di negeri Perak ini akan melanda negeri-negeri lain? Mungkinkah justifikasi Niccolo Machiavelli dalam buku The Prince bakal diaplikasikan di Malaysia? Memerintah melalui paksaan, bukan melalui undang-undang (jalur hukum). Renung-renungkan dan selamat beramal..^_^

Jika ada fakta yang salah,harap dapat diperbetulkan..

p/s:untuk sahabat-sahabat,thanks for everything..Moga ukhuwah yang terbina antara kita seperti seutas tasbih, ada awal tiada penghujungnya, dicipta untuk mengingatiNya, dicantum kerana cintaNya, diratib demi redhaNya. Ukhuwah fillah..
