to touch a dog



♥ assalamualaikum 


Oh my..its amazing how an idea can lead to, well, this. All this hatred and argument without reasons, i hate it. But this is us. Not necessarily "us" us but us, community around the world. You get what i mean? Huhu..Some people might say things like, "orang melayu memang macam tu" "orang malaysia memang macam ni" but i think everyone around the world is "macam tu" and "macam ni". I guess its the nature of any society; to focus on small issues rather than the bigger picture. Because smaller issues are easier to understand, hence easier to have an opinion, hence easier to argue with people. Okay too much hence. But serious though, its always the little things that made us fight. 



I want to touch a dog



When i first knew about this event i was kinda shock. But after reading more i realized that there are few ustaz on ground to teach people and educate about how to sertu, samak and all, so i thought, well maybe its a good thing. But the next day, the next day was even more shocking. Reading the post and comments about the event is what broke my heart the most.


To make things clear, i am not 100% agree with what they did. I mean, c'mon, do you really have to hug and kiss them? Then posting the pictures on facebook, like you don't know how sensitive the issue is. Have some respect for people who have strong believes about this. Of course they'll feel like you're mocking at what they believed in. You would too.



I think the organizer had a good idea but they didn't execute it well enough. Things like this, its either you do it perfectly or not do it at all. Its that critical. 




"Mula-mula touch a dog lepas tu apa? Touch a pig pula?"


Now this, this is what i think is the most ridiculously unfair statement ever. Its like you want people to fight. Those people who organized the event are muslims too, they have feelings too. To assume their effort to spread awareness will lead to "Touch a pig event" is too much. Its hurtful, don't you realize it? If you're scared this might lead to event like "touch a pig" then take precautions. Make sure things like that wont happen, make rules or regulations. We can do that you know. Not judging people and accuse them of doing things that are not even happening yet.


I don't agree with all the hugs and kisses too but i don't hate them. I just think what they did exceeds our limitations as a muslim. I think these people don't know what the limit is because looking at pictures, most of them wears hijab and all. Theres even a few makcik wearing tudung labuh, i don't think they'll do it if they knew they can't. So enough with this hatred, forgive them already. 


Or maybe they have different sets of beliefs than us. We do have different mazhab and not everything is black and white, they are few grey areas. So instead of assuming they're stupid, how bout assuming they know more about the different opinions of different muslim scholars than you? See..its possible that you're wrong. So say nice things ok. 



So can muslim touch a dog?



There are lots of websites you can read. Don't read opinion, read blogs that have clear references that you can recheck. If easier, read fatwa from Jais or Jakim. But their statement are usually straight to the point. I mean the explanations are short and brief. I found these blogs here which i think is good.

Or you know, read from facebook page of ustaz and ulama. But but, remember that we don't follow what the ustaz or ulama says, we follow Al-Quran and Sunnah. They're just sharing their knowledge and they are not free from making mistakes. So read more than 1 ulama or ustaz ok. Read more and stay positive. Thats what mature people do. Ahah :)

Bad lucks



♥ assalamualaikum 


Semalam dengan harini agak menyedihkan. First of all, my plan to fly to KL jumaat lepas dah terkubur, atas kesalahan dan ke-ngek-an diri sendiri. I thought sempat naik flight tapi haish, terlepass. Dan sebab aku dah janji (sort of) dengan kawan aku nak teman dia pergi Penang (wedding kawan matrik) aku pun naik bas ke KL. I was so frustrated when i missed the flight, rasa berat hati nak naik bas tapi sebab tak sampai hati nak kensel last minit, ku gagahi jua. Lagipun, keadaan sekrang pun da menyedihkan. Daripada plan nak ber-4 jadi ber-2 sahaje. I didn't have the heart to cancel too.


I called my friend and ask her, komfem tak kita jadi pergi Penang esok sebab tengok fb status macam tak sihat. After getting "Inshaallah jadi." i went to sri puteri. Masa tu rasa malas dah nak balik KL so aku msg kawan aku tu, bagitau yang kalau ade possibility kita tak jadi pergi aku taknak balik sebab nak join event Run kat UTM. But i didn't get the reply. Selepas berfikir, i thought, well..a promise is a promise. Kalau lambat buat decision nak naik bas, lagi lambat sampai, lagi penat nak sambung perjalanan esoknya, so...berlandaskan "Inshaallah jadi" aku pun naik lah bas.So daripada plan asal sampai KL pukul 8 lebih, tapi dengan sedihnya pukul 12 baru sampai TBS.




The bad luck




The bad luck is, sambil atas bas (ke dekat TBS dah, tak sure) saya mendapat msg bahawasanya kami tidak jadi ke Penang, kerana kawan saya sakit dan ibunya tidak memberi kebenaran untuk drive ke sana. Frust sikit. But hey, at least i got to join the Run event. Sebab kawan kelas yang kerja kat KL pun nak join, so i thought, hey mini reunion! YAY! 


Alang-alang dah sampai KL, aku balik rumah jumpa family kejap, mintak kebenaran nak balik Skudai balik. Sebab minggu depan nak balik cuti Raya Haji, plus ada kerja nak buat so lebih awal balik lebih bagus. Boleh tumpang kawan kelas yang kerja KL tu. So lepas magrib kitorang gerak dan sampai dalam pukul 12 tengah malam. I was so freaking tired so i didn't join them for supper.


Dulu kitorang budak master ni ber-4, tapi sorang dah habis study. Tapi semalam dia datang tido sini sebab nak join event esok. Tido bilik kawan. Thinking that it might be hard to wake up the next morning, i join the sleepover. Lagipun nak melepak jugak. 




The 2nd Bad Luck




The next morning, aku tak bangun pun. Frust. Kawan yang tido satu bilik tu tak kejut aku sebab tak sampai hati nak kacau aku tido. Masa otw nak balik skudai aku dah bagitau nak join event esok, tapi aku tak bagitau membe yang tido sebilik tu pun. Aku bagitau member lain. So i guess its my bad. Tengah hari baru bangun, event dah habis. Frust. Tapi kitorang dapat jugak la lepak, makan tengah hari sama-sama lepas tu singgah PC Fair, singgah Kacang Pool then balik.




The 3rd Bad Luck (Like i didn't get enough)




I really wanna hang out with the girls tonight. Diorang kata ada kawan ajak karok malam ni so i thought ok..maybe boleh makan sekali before karok tu. But when i asked when they wanna go out, they say about 7 something. Kalau macam tu memang tak dapat la nak makan sama. They have a group here, ada kelab yang diorang join since first year and i'm not one of the members. Diorang memang close gila, selalu keluar sama and all. I wanna join karok too but you know, orang tak ajak takkan tiba-tiba nak ikut. Aku pun bukan member kelab tu, tak kenal orang sangat. At least wait for them to ask dulu. Takot diorang memang taknak aku ikut sebab tak cukup space ke, nak lepak dengan budak kelab je ke. Mana lah tau. So i just wait.


Long story short, there's a bit of miscommunication and i ended up staying in my room alone while they're out. They want me to follow them but they thought i already knew it and thought that i don't wanna come. Frust.


These 2 days, man..i am freakinly tired. I took the bus, i took the ride for nothing. Frustrated, so frustrated. Penat gila dan sedih gila kot. I wanna be with my friends but i didn't get that. I could spend more time with my family but i chose not to. Bad bad luck. Well, i just have to let this feeling out and i'll be fine. Plus, minggu depan balik rumah! Wee~~

hujan



diwaktu siang kau berjalan sendiri,
menanti awan tuk datang tutup matahari,
di tengah panas kau menunggu,
sang hujan untuk bawa turun kasihMu.

redup redup awan melindungi,
benih benih mimpimu yang suci,
hujan yang turun tuk basahi bumi,
sekaligus hanyutkan ragu di hati.

Walaupun berat mengendong air mata sendiri,
melihat langit benderang kau turut gagahi,
kerana percaya ada makna di sebalik serik ini.
