we still have the opportunity to choose our death.
It's in your hand, to leave this world with triumph or failure.
Out there, there's still too much of misery but lack of empathy.
Loads of enmity but little of kindness and love.
To my fellow mankind, reveal what have been concealed.
May you find the truth.

The beauty of a woman
Isn't reflected in the cloths she wears,
Its not in her figure,
Its not in the way she combs her hair.
The beauty of a woman
Must be seen from in her eyes,
To see the true beauty of a woman
You have to look into her soul.
Isn't found in her smile,
The true beauty of a woman
Is found deep within her heart,
Where only love resides.
The true beauty of a woman
Is shown in her tenderness,
In the care that she gives,
And the passion that she shows.
The true beauty of a woman
Grows with each passing year,
Because every woman is beautiful
in her own way!
Prophet Muhammad (sallallahu alayhi was sallam) said, "A woman is normally sought as a wife for her wealth, beauty, nobility, or religiousness (adherence to Islam), but choose a religious woman and you will prosper. "
Rasulullah saw bersabda: "Allah swt berfirman: Wahai anak Adam, sepanjang engkau memohon kepadaKu dan berharap kepadaKu akan Aku ampuni apa yang telah kamu lakukan, dan Aku tidak peduli. Wahai anak Adam, jika dosa-dosamu setinggi awan di langit, kemudian engkau meminta ampunan kepada-Ku, akan aku ampuni. Wahai anak Adam, sesungguhnya jika engkau datang kepada Ku membawa kesalahan sebesar dunia, kemudian engkau datang kepada Ku tanpa menyekutukan Aku dgn sesuatu pun, pasti Aku akan datang kepadamu dengan ampunan sebesar itu juga"

To some confidence comes easy. To others it is a concept very alien to practicality.
How can I put it to you, that even now my heart is breaking into tiny little pieces of chunks? And today, I can't seem to comprehend to where the wind will blow it off.
Goodbye Miss Compassion. I will miss you.
Until we meet again, yours truly - Malice.

ar-Rahman atas segalanya
ar-Rahim atas segalanya..
adunan rasa yang disimpan,
jauh di sudut yang paling dalam
buat jiwa-jiwa..yang berjiwa mutarabbi..
meski sudah jauh berjalan
jiwanya masih jiwa mutarabbi
mengharap sayang sang murabbi
mengharap kasih sang murabbi
dalam hatimu itu ada rasa sayang
dalam hatimu itu ada rasa kasih
sayang bukan sebarang sayang
kasih bukan sebarang kasih
diriku dan kalian
murabbi itu bukan malaikat
murabbi itu bukan nabi yang maksum,
murabbi itu cuma seorang manusia,
yang dengan sedayanya mencuba
menjadikan nabi itu qudwah terbaik dalam hidupnya
dan kenapa, duhai pemilik hati ‘abidurrahman
perlu kalian mengeluh, berkeluh kesah
resah menanti murabbi sepertinya malaikat
menunggu murabbi sepertinya nabi
tanpa ada cacat walau sedikit
benar murabbi itu seorang pemimpin
benar murabbi itu seorang guru
benar murabbi itu seorang teman
benar, seharusnya begitu
diriku dan kalian..
Allah jua merancang,
dan Dia adalah sebaik-baik perancang..
sabar..sabar..sabar duhai pemilik hati ‘abidurrahman..
tarbiyah itu dari Allah..
ada harinya tarbiyah itu lewat sang murabbi..
ada harinya tarbiyah itu lewat sang mutarabbi..
ada harinya tarbiyah itu, lewat diri kita sendiri…
tapi datangnya sama, dari Allah..
kenapa harus ada masa berhenti?
kenapa harus ada masa berhenti dari tarbiyah ini?
yang miliki hatimu itu dirimu sendiri
yang miliki jiwamu itu jiwamu sendiri
yang miliki imanmu itu imanmu sendiri
Allah kan ada..
duhai pemilik hati ‘abidurrahman..
ku katakan begini,
untuk kalian yang memiliki jiwa mutarabbi
untuk diriku yang jua seorang mutarabbi
dan murabbi kita..jua seorang mutarabbi..
tidak rindukah kita pada baginda?
murabbi kepada murabbi teragung..?
DIA pemilik nyawa kita..
DIA pemilik hati kita..
DIA pemilik iman kita..
kembali pada asalnya diri.
jadi kenapa harus lari?

So beautifully depicted!
Which means that, we can never be equals. We were never equals to begin with. You see, Allah created each of us with different roles to fill in without which, the world would be upside down. We are mutually superior to each other. Subhanallah!
I have posted 3 videos from an episode of the show Stairway To Paradise hosted by Moez Masoud talking on "Women inIslam". Through my previous readings, Alhamdulillah, I have always understood this fact about gender equality; that in reality men and women CAN NOT be equals. However, listening to the discussion held between Moez and two other Muslim women is really a refreshing and empowering notion that has made me all the more thankful and proud that I was born a female. As a woman, I am special and I deserve to respected. Men too deserve to be respected for the role they play! ;)
Below are some of the points that had really excited and intrigued me. You can go through them if you choose not to listen to all the 3 videos.
1) False intrinsic superiority: a lot of men will make up themselves as the norm, a standard base upon which women should measure herself. To judge herself by man's standards. You're not correct unless you're like men.
2) Something else that men kind of make themselves the standard; like being rational. The idea that to be over rational and less emotional is the human norm and that if you use emotions it's inferior. But sometimes man's rationality becomes his inferiority.
3) Men setting standard and judging women according to it and how that's is unfair for a men to do. For example rational vs emotional. So what? That's because of the roles we have to play.
4) Medically men would die if he gives birth! (Evan I didn't know that!) In this sense, women are physically superior to men.
5) It's about a balance, remember we're not saying men are better than women, or women are better than men. We're saying we're exactly the same in a mutually superior way. It's the justice of Allah.
6) Women are wired to be better than men in multi-tasking. That's a superiority to men. For example, biologically, men can not hear with both ears at the same time. If you talk to them while they are doing something, they can't focus.
7) "And the male is not like the female.." (3:36) We are different. We are better than each other in respected things.
9) Post-modern feminist (a true feminist, not the twisted feminism): true feminism is to truly empower women to make their own choices. Not to become like men.
10) You don't have to be like a man, to be a equal to a man. (so true!)
12) If you truly want to affect the world, bring up the children.
13) If you teach a woman, it's like you've taught all of humanity.
14) Men should start respecting the women and they should stop having this false sense of superiority. And women should actually start feeling that they have their own separate feminine identity not according to the standard of a man.
16) Islam is about humility and it's actually male ego that prevents them from doing what the prophet Muhammad saw did like helping his wife do the dishes, etc.
May Allah allow us to learn all we can from this! Enjoy the show~

I managed to watch a fast-forward (manually) version of The Arrivals series just now. For those who feel intrigued, you can watch it on youtube. I won't elaborate much here but I just want to share with you some of the things depicted on the documentary series. One of the series mentioned about the once epic trilogy, The Matrix, and how it relates to the world as it is now. I can only leave you with this: you can only see the obvious if your mind is open to it and if you are willing to accept the fact that we have been indoctrinated by a culture that is bringing us to our doom as a human race.
For people who still choose to live in their own comfort zone, you should stop reading now and I would suggest to not ever watch The Arrivals series (I bet you'd really want to see it now, hehhe). Thank you!
The Matrix is society. It is culture. It is all the things that have been built to blind us to the innate freedoms to be who and what we want to be. And frankly, if you can't unplug, if you can't break away, the things you see remain tinted and obscured by the Matrix.
That's more easily said than done. Some people cannot imagine a world without structure. Without order. Without binary rules to help guide their lives. They wouldn't take the Red Pill for anything. These people cannot imagine a world of freedom, and actually perceive attempts at freedom as threats to their very existence, to the foundations of life itself! They do what they feel they need to do to protect it.
The Matrix is a system, Neo. That system is our enemy. When you're inside, look around. What do you see? Businessmen, teachers, lawyers, carpenters. The very minds of the people we are trying to save. But until we do, these people are still a part of that system, and that makes them our enemy. You have to understand. Most of these people are not ready to be unplugged. And many of them are so annulled, so hopelessly dependent on the system that they will fight to protect it.
I'm trying to free your mind, Neo, but I can only show you the door. You're the one that needs to walk through it. You have to let it all go, Neo. Fear, doubt, disbelief. Free your mind!
|Morpheus: The Matrix cannot tell you who you are. |
Morpheus: There's a difference between knowing the path and walking the path.
What path are we talking about? That will be for another entry.
