Love or Infatuation

Infatuation is instant desire, one set of glands calling to another.

Love is friendship that has caught fire. It takes root and grows, one day at a time.

Infatuation is marked by a feeling of insecurity. You are excited and eager but not genuinely happy. There are nagging doubts, unanswered questions, little bits and pieces about your beloved that you would just as soon not examine too closely. It might spoil the dream.

Love is the quiet understanding and mature acceptance of imperfection. It is real. It gives you strength and grows beyond you - to bolster your beloved. You are warmed by his presence, even when he is away. Miles do not separate you. You have so many wonderful little films in your head that you keep replaying. But near or far, you know he is yours and you can wait.

Infatuation says, "We must get married right away. I can't risk losing him." Love says, "Be patient. Don't panic. Plan your future with confidence."

Infatuation has an element of sexual excitement. Whenever you are together you hope it will end in intimacy. Love is not based on sex. It is the maturation of friendship which makes sex so much sweeter. You must be friends before you can be lovers.

Infatuation lacks confidence. When he's away, you wonder if he's cheating. Sometimes you check.

Love means trust. You are calm, secure and unthreatened. He feels your trust, and it makes him even more trustworthy.

Infatuation might lead you to do things you will regret, but love never steers you in the wrong direction.

Love is elevating. It lifts you up. It makes you look up. It makes you think up. It makes you a better person than you were before.

Simple Friends vs Real Friends

A simple friend has never seen you cry.
A real friend has shoulders soggy from your tears.

A simple friend thinks the friendship is over when you have an argument.
A real friend knows that it's not a friendship until after you've had a fight.

A simple friend hates it when you call after he has gone to bed.
A real friend asks you why you took so long to call.

A simple friend, when visiting, acts like a guest.
A real friend opens your refrigerator and helps himself.

A simple friend wonders about your romantic history.
A real friend could blackmail you with it.

A simple friend expects you to always be there for them.
A real friend expects to always be there for you!

Romantic Compatibility - Gemini & Libra

When Gemini and Libra come together in a love affair, they enjoy a great relationship based on intellectual interests and mental agility. Dual-natured Gemini loves Libra's balance, and Libra is always entertained by the chatty, brainy Twins. Libra loves art and beauty while Gemini loves the beauty of an idea, but these loves aren't far off from one another.

Both Gemini and Libra have a great deal of mental energy. They can come up with all sorts of great ideas when they work together, and Libra has the get-up-and-go needed to put their ideas into action, a quality which Gemini tends to lack. In fact, in the birth of an idea Gemini is better at pontification than direction, but this is a valuable contribution to Libra's mental process. Both Signs share a need for intellectual freedom, which they can certainly provide for one another.

Libra is ruled by the Planet Venus (Love) and Gemini by the Planet Mercury (Communication). Libra and Gemini work well together; they combine the forces of love and communication. As Libra prizes harmony with their lover almost above all else, Gemini won't be able to indulge their love of a good, hearty debate too often; Libra would rather do almost anything than argue.

Both Libra and Gemini are Air Signs. Gemini loves Libra's energy and has no trouble keeping up when Libra is off and running with a new idea, art project or other pursuit. Both Signs have wide-ranging interests, giving them great material for provocative discussion.

Gemini is a Mutable Sign and Libra is a Cardinal Sign. Libra likes a position of leadership in a relationship. They most often come up with the date ideas, for example, and flexible Gemini's happy to go along -- as long as it's okay to change their minds at the last minute. Libra tends to initiate things but has trouble finishing them; Gemini is so adaptable, they won't mind switching gears on a moment's notice and moving on to something else if Libra gets bored.

What's the best aspect of the Gemini-Libra relationship? Their ability to work together as an intellectual team. Together they can expose each other to new and different points of view and areas of interest, and help one another open up their worlds.

The Joy of Raising You

We’re glad you joined our family,
Yet some things make us wonder;
How can a little package like you
Have a voice that’s loud as thunder?

You are so small and oh so cute,
But you are never very shy,
For whenever you want something,
You just open your mouth and cry.

First you moved on hands and knees,
Then you were up on your feet.
We’re chasing you all around the house;
We’re tired; we need a retreat!

Some food is on the table;
Some food is on the floor;
Seems the only place food didn’t go,
Is in the baby we adore.

Diapers here and diapers there,
Stinky... smelly... Whew!
Diapers would have done us in,
If we didn’t love you as we do.

We’re glad you joined our family,
You’re a unique and wonderful treasure.
So, despite the work of raising you,
Being your parents is a total pleasure!

Ocean Size by Leigh Nash

I know what I'm doing may be dumb
I know I should not be staring at the sun
But the thought of you leads me to temptation
It's the same whatever side you're on
Separated we are delicate and small
And the space between, needs our attention
I see you right in front of me, as close as you can get
And I pray that you won't leave, this daydream yet

And it might seem much too far, to get back to where you are
But it's close enough, with an ocean size love
So if you can't reach out to me, send a sign across the sea
And I'll pick it up, with an ocean size love

I don't have to worry any more
If I really need you I'll go to the shore
And the thought of you there is my protection
I see you right in front of me, a vision in my head
And I know this is as real, as a daydream gets

And it might seem much too far, to get back to where you are
But it's close enough, with an ocean size love
So if you can't reach out to me, send a sign across the sea
And I'll pick it up, with an ocean size love

You make no sound, but I can hear you in the wind
I can see this never ends, like the sea, like you for me

And it's close enough, with an ocean size love
So if you can't reach out to me, send a sign across the sea
And I'll pick it up, with an ocean size love
And it might seem much too far, to get back to where you are
But it's close enough, with an ocean size love
So if you can't reach out to me, send a sign across the sea
And I'll pick it up, with an ocean size love

Oh, oh...

Can Women Be Bought WIth Money?

The answer to the topic is a yes.

In fact, men can be bought at a lesser price.Offer a man in need something and he can topple a government for you. But we're not digging that deep today.
I have observed that many Chinese (as in from the People's Republic of China) women get alot of bad reputation from being kept women, and or money grubbing bitches who go after Singaporean men with deep pockets.

But I think the ones to really blame for that reputation is the men who think they can buy any women with money.

A lot of people lull themselves into thinking they can afford something, thinking they have enough in their bank account to do exactly just that. Unless you are Donald Trump or Robert T. Kiyosaki, then the rest of us are just trying to survive. Let alone to think that we can actually afford extra marital affairs.

But the truth is, its those ugly, never-gonna-get-some guys that resort to that. I think the larger numbers who really think ALL women are superficial, materialistic female beings are those who think that they could buy any hot looking woman, or any woman for that matter. If no one has said this before, let me say this: Women may seem to be drawn by money ONLY because of the financial security aspect of it. Money aside, women like us men, want companionship.

All of us, after awhile when we bore of what money could buy, will start to wonder why our one of the person in that marriage is not always around. At the end of the day what you make in financial wealth is just as important as the time you spend with your wife (and a beautiful wife sometimes) and your children.

So I doubt most people know what they mean when they just dismissively proclaim in a conversation, that its not about money. It IS about money. Money makes the world go round. And in one persons life there are bills and other financial liabilities that you have to attend to. So in part it is about money.

But really money does not really buy happiness.

Asthma Treatment

Asthma treatment using Honey
Honey is one of the most common home remedies for asthma. It is said that if a jug of honey is held under the nose of an asthma patient and he inhales the air that comes into contact with it, he starts breathing easier and deeper.

Asthma treatment using Figs
Among fruits, figs have proved very valuable in asthma. They give comfort to the patient by draining off the phlegm. Three or four dry figs should be cleaned thoroughly with warm water and soaked overnight.

Asthma treatment using Lemon
Lemon is another fruit found beneficial in the treatment of asthma. The juice of one lemon, diluted in a glass of water and taken with meals, will bring good results

Asthma treatment using Indian Gooseberry
Indian gooseberry has also proved valuable in asthma. Five grams of gooseberry mixed with one tablespoon of honey forms an effective medicinal tonic for the treatment of this disease. It should be taken every morning .

Asthma treatment using Bitter Gourd Roots
The roots of the bitter gourd plant have been used in folk medicine for asthma since ancient times. A teaspoon of the root paste, mixed with an equal amount of honey or juice of the tulsi leaves, given once every night for a month, acts as an excellent medicine for this disease.

Asthma treatment using Drumstick Leaves
A soup prepared from drumstick leaves, and taken once daily, has been found beneficial in the treatment of asthma. This soup is prepared by adding a handful of leaves to 180ml of water and boiling it for five minutes. After being allowed to cool, a little salt, pepper, and lime juice may be added to this soup.

Asthma treatment using Ginger
A teaspoon of fresh ginger juice, mixed with a cup of fenugreek decoction and honey to taste, acts as an excellent expectorant in cases of asthma.

An infusion of five grams of flowers mixed with one tablespoon of honey, taken once daily, is also useful in this disease.

Diet for Asthma
carbohydrates, fats and proteins

The patient should avoid common dietetic errors. Ideally, his diet should contain a limited quantity of carbohydrates, fats and proteins which are 'acid-forming' foods, and a liberal quantity of alkali-forming foods consisting of fresh fruits, green vegetables, sprouted seeds, and grains. The patient should avoid foods which tend to produce phlegm, such as rice, sugar, lentils, and curds. He should also avoid fried and other difficult to-digest foods, strong tea, coffee, alcoholic beverages, condiments pickles, sauces and all refined and processed foods.

Other Suggestions for Asthma
Fasting and exercises

The patient should also follow the other laws of nature. Air, sun, and water are great healing agents. Regular fasting once a week, an occasional enema, breathing exercises, fresh air, a dry climate, light exercises, and correct posture go a long way in treating the disease.

Did I Marry The Right Person?

Take time to read, good reminder for us - the married ones. And those thinkin' of gettin married. And maybe, those who thinkin' of NOT gettin' married too....heheh! =)

During one of our seminars, a woman asked a common question.

She said, "How do I know if I married the right person?"

I noticed that there was a large man sitting next to her so I said, "It depends. Is that your husband?"

In all seriousness, she answered "How do you know?"

Let me answer this question because the chances are good that it's weighing on your mind.

Here's the answer.

EVERY relationship has a cycle. In the beginning, you fell in love with your spouse.You anticipated their call, wanted their touch, and liked their idiosyncrasies.

Falling in love with your spouse wasn't hard. In fact, it was a completely natural and spontaneous experience.

You didn't have to DO anything. That's why it's called "falling"in love... Because it's happening TO YOU.

People in love sometimes say, "I was swept of my feet." Think about the imagery of that _expression. It implies that you were just standing there; doing nothing, and then something came along and happened TO YOU.

Falling in love is easy. It's a passive and spontaneous experience.

But after a few years of marriage, the euphoria of love fades. It's the natural cycle of EVERY relationship. Slowly but surely, phone calls become a bother (if they come at all), touch is not always welcome (when it happens), and your spouse's idiosyncrasies, instead of being cute, drive you nuts.

The symptoms of this stage vary with every relationship, but if you think about your marriage, you will notice a dramatic difference between the initial stage when you were in love and a much duller or even angry subsequent stage.

At this point, you and/or your spouse might start asking, "Did I marry the right person?" And as you and your spouse reflect on the euphoria of the love you once had, you may begin to desire that experience with someone else.

This is when marriages breakdown. People blame their spouse for their unhappiness and look outside their marriage for fulfillment.

Extramarital fulfillment comes in all shapes and sizes. Infidelity is the most obvious. But sometimes people turn to work, church, a hobby, a friendship, excessive TV, or abusive substances.

But the answer to this dilemma does NOT lie outside your marriage. It lies within it.

I'm not saying that you couldn't fall in love with someone else. You could.

And TEMPORARILY you'd feel better. But you'd be in the same situation a few years later.
Because (listen carefully to this):


SUSTAINING love is not a passive or spontaneous experience.It'll NEVER just happen to you. You can't "find" LASTING love. You have to "make" it day in and day out. That's why we have the expression "the labor of love." Because it takes time, effort, and energy. And most importantly, it takes WISDOM. You have to know WHAT TO DO to make your marriage work.

Make no mistake about it. Love is NOT a mystery. There are specific things you can do (with or without your spouse) to succeed with your marriage.

Just as there are physical laws of the universe (such as gravity), there are also laws for relationships. Just as the right diet and exercise program makes you physically stronger, certain habits in your relationship WILL make your marriage stronger. It's a direct cause and effect. If you know and apply the laws, the results are predictable... you can "make" love.

Love in marriage is indeed a "decision"... Not just a feeling.

What Is Islam?

Islam and Muslims

Islam is an Arabic word which means total submission to God, peace, purity, acceptance and commitment. As a religion, Islam calls for complete acceptance of the teachings and guidance of God. A Muslim is one who freely and willingly accepts the supreme power of God and strives to organize his life in total accord with the teachings of God. He also works for building social institutions which reflect the guidance of God. "Muhammadanism" is a misnomer for Islam and offends its very spirit since the Prophet Muhammad was a messenger of God, and not a divine being worshipped by Muslims. Muslims use the word "Allah" for the English word "God". The understanding of Deity in Islam differs from some of the connotations in the English word, God. For the convenience of English speaking readers, the word God is used in this brochure except when the word "Allah" is in the quotations from the Qur'an.

Continuity of The Message

Islam is not a new religion. It is, in essence, the same message and guidance which God revealed to all His previous messengers. "Say: We believe in Allah and that which was revealed to us, and that which was revealed to Abraham and Ishmael and Isaac and Jacob and the tribes and that which was given to Moses and Jesus and to the Prophets from their Lord; We make no distinction between any of them, and to Him we submit". Qur'an 3:83. The message which was revealed to the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) is Islam in its comprehensive, complete and final form.

Every action done with the awareness that it fulfills the Will of God is considered an act of worship in Islam. But it is the specific acts of worship termed the Pillars of Islam which provide the framework of Muslim spiritual life.

These are given below:

1. The DECLARATION OF FAITH. "I bear witness that there is no one worthy of worship except God (Allah), and that Muhammad is His servant and messenger." The Prophethood of Muhammad obliges Muslims to follow his exemplary life in every respect.

2. PRAYERS are prescribed five times a day as a duty towards God. Prayer strengthens and enlivens belief in God and inspires man to higher morality. It purifies the heart and controls temptation, wrong-doing, and evil.

3. FASTING during the month of Ramadan. This means abstention from food, beverages, and sex from dawn to sunset, and curbing evil intentions and desires. It teaches love, sincerity, and devotion. It develops patients, unselfishness, social conscience, and willpower to bear hardship.

4. ZAKAT is a proportionately fixed contribution collected from the wealth and earning of the well to do and rich. It is spent on the poor and needy in particular, and the welfare of the society in general. The payment of Zakah purifies ones income and wealth and helps to establish economic balance and social justice in the society.

5. HAJ, or pilgrimage to the Ka'bah in Makkah, once in a lifetime, provided one has the means to undertake the journey.

Islam enjoins faith in the oneness and sovereignty of God, which creates an awareness of the unity and meaningfulness of the universe and of man's place in it. This belief frees him from all fears and superstitions by making him conscious of the presence of the Almighty God and of man's obligations to Him. But this realization must be expressed and tested in action. Faith alone is not enough. Belief in one God requires that we look upon all humanity as one family under the universal omnipotence of God - the Creator and Nourisher of all. Islam rejects the idea that there is a "chosen people" making pure intention, faith in God, and good deeds the only way to heaven. Thus a direct relationship is established with God, open to all alike, without any discrimination or intercession.

The Qur'an is the last revealed word of God and the basic source of Islamic teachings and laws. It deals with a variety of subjects including the basic beliefs of Islam, morality, worship, knowledge, wisdom, God-and-man relationships, and relations among human beings. Comprehensive teachings on which sound systems of social justice, politics, economics, legislation, jurisprudence, law and international relations can be built from an important part of the Holy Qur'an. Though Prophet Muhammad did not receive a formal education, the Qur'an, as soon as it was revealed to him in the spoken word, was committed to writing by his secretaries. In this way every word was written down and preserved during his lifetime by his companions. The original and complete text of the Qur'an is in Arabic and translations of its meaning in most known languages are available in major libraries and bookstores. Hadith, the teachings, sayings and actions of Prophet Muhammad, accurately reported and collected by his devoted companions, explain and elaborate the Qur'anic verses.

Islam does not teach ritualism. It places great emphasis on intention and action. To worship God is to love him and to act upon His commands in every aspect of life, to enjoin goodness and forbid wrong-doing and oppression, to practice charity and justice and to serve Him by serving mankind. The Qur'an presents this sublime concept in the following manner: "It is not righteousness that you turn your faces to the East or West, but righteous is he who believes in Allah and the Last Day and the Angels and the Scripture and the Prophets; and gives his wealth for love of Him to kinsfolk and to orphans and the needy and the wayfarer and to those who ask, and sets slaves free; and observes proper worship and pays the Zakah. And those who keep their treaty when they make one, and the patient in tribulation and adversity and time of stress; such are those who are sincere. Such are the Godfearing". Qur'an 2:177.

Man, A Free Agent

Man is the highest creation of God and he has a free will to make his own decisions. God has shown him the right path, and the life of Prophet Muhammad provides a perfect example for achieving success and salvation. Islam stands for the sanctity of human personality and confers equal rights on all without distinction of race, nationality or sex. The law of God set down in the Qur'an and exemplified in the life of the Prophet is supreme in all cases. It applies equally to the prince and the pauper, the ruler and the ruled, the saint and the sinner.

Man's Accountability to God

Man's life is not limited to the short span of earthly existence. On the day of judgement the entire human race will be resurrected; everyone will appear before the Almighty God and face the consequences of his deeds in this life. Thus, life in the Hereafter is a continuation of the earthly life. Belief in man's accountability to God gives a sense and meaning to life and differentiates human beings from animals and inanimate objects. It serves as a reminder against crime, corruption, immorality, and injustice.

Human Rights

Islam protects all noble values and human rights. Freedom, equality, justice, and the right to life, liberty, and security of person are of prime concern in Islamic law. "Whosoever kills a human being for other than manslaughter or corruption in the earth, it shall be as if he had killed all mankind, and whosoever saves the life of one, it shall be as if he had saved the life of all mankind..." Qur'an 5:32. Islam places great emphasis on social justice. It opposes all those who exploit, oppress and deal unjustly with people. " O ye who believe: Be steadfast witnesses for Allah in equity and let not hatred of any people seduce you that you deal not justly. Be just; that is nearer to piety". Qur'an 5:8.

Science and Technology

Islam encourages the use of science and the scientific method. Acquisition of knowledge is obligatory on every Muslim, male and female. In Islam, science and technology should be used for moral ends and serve all legitimate needs of mankind. Moreover, both are viewed as yet another means to understand and see the power and glory of God. "He it is Who created for you all that is in the earth." Qur'an 2:29. "It is your Lord, the Most Bounteous, Who taught by the pen, taught man that which he knew not..." Qur'an 96:2- 5. "We shell show them our Signs on the horizons and within themselves until it will be manifest unto them that it is the Truth..." Qur'an 41:53.
Islam: The Cure for Modern AilmentsRacism is a major problem in many materially advanced countries. Prejudice and discrimination against racial groups is common phenomenon even today. For 1400 years Islam has shown in practice how racism can be ended. The Islamic social scene, particularly during the Hajj, is a unique example of the brotherhood of men of all races and nations under One God. Similarly, the family, the basic unit of civilization has also become something of a problem in the West. It is in visible decay. The family system of Islam brings the rights of husband, wife, children, and relatives into a fine equilibrium. Islam nourishes generosity in the family and holds it together under the clear Qur'anic laws and teachings of the Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him.

Some Misconceptions About Islam

It is unfortunate that some teachings of Islam have been distorted and misrepresented in the West and the communist world. The main distortions relate to the status of women, marriage and divorce, jihad or so-called "holy war", the authenticity of the prophethood of Muhammad (peace be upon him), and the distinction between the Qur'an and the Hadith. The accurate teachings of Islam on these matters can be obtained only from authentic Islamic writings.

19. Daripada Aisyah r.a. Barangsiapa yang diuji dengan sesuatu daripada anak-anak perempuannya, lalu dia berbuat baik kepada mereka, maka mereka akan menjadi penghalang baginya daripada api neraka. "Jadi, janganlah sesekali kita merasa lemah. Wanitalah sebenarnya yang membuat seseorang lelaki itu kuat. Itulah salah satu sebab mengapa Nabi meletakkan wanita setaraf pada lelaki dan tidak lebih rendah.

1. Aku rumah yang terpencil, Maka kamu akan senang dengan selalu membaca Al-Quran.
2. Aku rumah yang gelap, Maka teranglah aku dengan selalu solat malam.
3. Aku rumah penuh dengan tanah dan debu, Maka bawalah amal soleh yang menjadi hamparan.
4. Aku rumah ular berbisa, Maka bawalah amalan Bismillah sebagai penawar.
5. Aku rumah pertanyaan Munkar dan Nakir, Maka banyaklah bacaan "Laa ilaha illallah, Muhammadur Rasulullah",supaya kamu dapat jawapan kepadanya.

Lima Jenis Racun dan Lima Penawarnya;
1. Dunia itu racun, Zuhud itu ubatnya.
2. Harta itu racun, Zakat itu ubatnya.
3. Perkataan yang sia-sia itu racun, Zikir itu ubatnya.
4. Seluruh umur itu racun, Taat itu ubatnya.
5. Seluruh tahun itu racun, Ramadhan itu ubatnya.

Mukjizatnya Azan

Pesanan Semasa Mendengar Azan...

Kematian itu pasti menjelma. Hanya masa dan waktunya yang tidak kita ketahui. Cuba kita amati. Mengapa kebanyakan orang yang nazak, hampir ajal tidak dapat berkata apa-apa.... lidahnya kelu, keras dan hanya mimik mukanya yang menahan kesakitan 'sakaratul maut'.

Diriwayatkan sebuah hadis yg bermaksud: "Hendaklah kamu mendiamkan diri ketika azan, jika tidak Allah akan kelukan lidahnya ketika maut menghampirinya. "Ini jelas menunjukkan, kita disarankan agar mendiamkan diri, jangan berkata apa-apa pun semasa azanberkumandang.

Sebagai orang beragama Islam kita wajib menghormati azan. Banyak fadhilatnya. Jika lagu kebangsaan kita diajar agar berdiri tegak dan diamkan diri. Mengapa ketika azan kita tidak boleh mendiamkan diri? Lantas sesiapa yang berkata-kata ketika azan, Allah akan kelukan lidahnya ketika nazak.

Kita takut dengan kelunya lidah kita semasa ajal hampir tiba maka kita tidak dapat mengucap kalimah "Lailahaillallah.." yang mana sesiapa yang dapat mengucapkan kalimah ini ketika nyawanya akan dicabut Allah dengan izinNya menjanjikan syurga untuk mereka.

Dari itu marilah kita sama-sama menghormati azan dan mohon kepada Allah supaya lidah ini tidak kelu semasa nyawa kita sedang dicabut.

"Ya Allah! Anugerahkanlah kematian kami dengan kematian yang baik lagi mulia, lancarkan lidah kami mengucap kalimah "Lailahaillallah.." semasa sakaratul maut menghampiri kami.Amin..amin..amin Yarobbal a'lamin.."

Wahai Ali, bagi orang 'ALIM itu ada 3 tanda2nya:
1) Jujur dalam berkata-kata.
2) Menjauhi segala yg haram.
3) Merendahkan diri.

Wahai Ali, bagi orang yg JUJUR itu ada 3 tanda2nya:
1) Merahsiakan ibadahnya.
2) Merahsiakan sedekahnya.
3) Merahsiakan ujian yg menimpanya.

Wahai Ali, bagi org yg TAKWA itu ada 3 tanda2nya:
1) Takut berlaku dusta dan keji.
2) Menjauhi kejahatan.
3) Memohon yang halal kerana takut jatuh dalam keharaman.

Wahai Ali, bagi AHLI IBADAH itu ada 3 tanda2nya:
1) Mengawasi dirinya.
2) Menghisab dirinya.
3) Memperbanyakkan ibadah kepada Allah s.w.t.

Wang RM50 kelihatan begitu besar bila dibawa ke kotak derma masjid, tetapi begitu kecil bila kita bawa ke supermarket. 45 minit terasa terlalu lama untuk berzikir tapi betapa pendeknya waktu itu untuk pertandingan bola sepak. Semua insan ingin memasuki syurga tetapi tidak ramai yang berfikir dan berbicara tentang bagaimana untuk memasukinya.

Life in Singapore

In Singapore , the majority of us live in Highly Dangerous Buildings - (HDB),

And most people have already got used to Paying and Paying - (PAP).

Not only do you have to pay, you Pay Until Bankrupt - (PUB).

If that's not enough, somebody still Purposely Wants to Dig - (PWD) and get more from you.

So what more can you do when you are in the Money Only Environment - (MOE)?

With the current Mad Accounting System - (MAS), you are forced to Pay the Sum Ahead - (PSA);

Which will leave some people Permanently Owing Some Banks - (POSB);

And forced to live on the Loan Techniques Always - (LTA) system.

When You might be able to use your Cash Prior to Funeral - (CPF) fund.

If you are out of luck, you may meet doctors who Never Use Heart - (NUH) to treat you;

And you will be Sure to Give up Hope (SGH).

To help ease the traffic, motorists have to pay Cash On Expressway - (COE).

If that doesn't help, they can always Eternally Raise Prices - (ERP) on the road.

If you don't own a car, you can always make a Mad Rush to the Train - (MRT), OR get squashed in a bus Side By Side - (SBS).

Lastly, under all these pressures, there are not many places we can relax, not even the good old place we used to go because it has become ....... So Expensive and Nothing To See Actually (SENTOSA)!!!

Sebab Hati Tidak Bahagia

Sebab-sebab hati tidak bahagia ialah kerana adanya mazmummah di dalam hati. Antara mazmummah utama yang menghilangkan bahagia di hati ialah:-

Paling mudah dikesan atau dilihat dan paling banyak di dalam diri manusia. Orang seperti ini jarang mendapat kawan dan hati tentunya tidak terang.

Tersembunyi ibarat mengumpul lahar di dalam dada. Orang seperti ini sentiasa mencari-cari peluang untuk membalas dendam hatta secara yang kecil-kecil sekalipun seperti sakitkan hati atau tempelak orang yang didendami itu. Sebab itu orang pendendam mudah kena sakit jantung.

Amalannya hangus akibat hasad dengkinya itu kerana ia memiliki sifat ketuhanan.

Sentiasa merasakan orang lain menginginkan harta, kesenangan, pangkat dan lain-lain dari dirinya. Contohnya sentiasa berdalih mengatakan ia tiada duit. Allah lebih sayang orang yang fasiq tetapi pemurah tetapi benci orang yang abid tetapi bakhil. Kerana walaupun fasiq, pemurahnya itu tetap memberi manfaat pada orang lain kerana kadangkala rezeki itu Allah beri melalui makhluk.

Orang yang tidak puas dengan yang sedikit nescaya tidak akan puas dengan yang banyak kerana dunia ini ibarat meminum air laut, walau berapa banyak yang diminum tetap tidak habis juga (lagipun orang tamak selalu rugi).
Ingat! Yang dikatakan harta atau rezeki kita bila ia dipakai atau digunakan oleh kita. Selagi tidak diguna iaitu disimpan, itu belum boleh dikatakan rezeki kita (mungkin ada hak orang lain di situ). Biarlah rezeki itu sedikit tetapi mendapat keberkatan iaitu dapat dimanfaatkan.

Andainya perkara yang kecil pun tidak boleh bersabar apatah lagi hal-hal yang lebih besar.

Ibu segala mazmummah jadi ia membuatkan seseorang paling tidak tenang. Orang yang memiliki sifat ini pantang tercabar dari sudut zahir mahupun batin. Pasal semua orang ada egonya sendiri, cuma tinggi atau rendah tahap keegoan tersebut.

Terseksa sendiri kerana sentiasa tercari-cari peluang untuk dipuji. Sentiasa berlakon-lakon di depan orang. Jika ia dipuji, ia akan menambah amalnya tetapi jika dikeji, ia akan mengurangkan amalnya. Allah marah kalau kita riak, takabbur dengan apar yang kita ada.

Tidak dapat menderita, dapat pun menderita kerana bila sudah dapat susah pula menjaganya. Berhartalah, tidak mengapa tetapi kawal hati jangan diletakkan pada harta itu (bila mati cuma bawa amalan dan doa anak yang soleh atau solehah). Cinta dunia merupakan 'neraka dunia' kerana dunia itu 'panas' akibat ia merupakan barang buruan dan rebutan. Jadi letakkanlah akhirat itu di hati dan dunia itu di tangan supaya dunia itu senang dibahagi-bahagi dan akhirat dibawa mati.

Jadi yang meragut kebahagiaan sebenarnya bukanlah secara TOTALnya disebabkan kemiskinan, musibah, kesibukan dan lain lainnya, tetapi ialah MAZMUMMAH. Makin tinggi mazmummah seseorang, makin ia tidak bahagia.

Samada bermujahadah atau biarkan saja mazmummah itu, kedua-duanya tetap menderita tetapi andainya bermujahadah kita akan dibantu Allah dan akan bahagia jua akhirnya. Sama-samalah kita sentiasa ingat mengingati antara satu sama lain, andai kita terleka dengan dunia buruklahh padahnya.

Wanita Yang Menolak Perkahwinan

Sepertimana yang diberitakan kepada kita oleh akhbar Berita Harian, hari ini terdapat segolongan wanita yang menolak perkahwinan. Antara sebabnya ialah kerana memandang perkahwinan sebagai satu bebanan yang menyekat kebebasan. Bila berkahwin, kuasa mutlak dalam menentukan hidup mula berubah dan terpikul pula dengan kerja-kerja mengurus rumahtangga dan anak-anak.

Justeru itu ramai yang lebih rela menjadi andartu walaupun pada hakikatnya, ianya tidak dapat memberi kebahagiaan pada jiwa. Ada juga yang tidak berkahwin disebabkan terlalu memilih calon yang sekufu dan ada yang tidak sempat memikirkan perkahwinan kerana terlalu sibuk dengan tugas-tugas dan kerjaya masing-masing.

Kami akan menceritakan tentang kerugian yang dialami oleh wanita yang tidak mahu bekahwin; tetapi bukan kepada wanita yang tidak berkahwin kerana tiada jodoh. Kalau sudah tidak ada jodoh, wanita tersebut tidak boleh dipersalahkan kerana sudah takdir menentukan demikian. Masalahnya sekarang, terdapat wanita yang mempunyai peluang untuk berkahwin tetapi menolak dengan alasan-alasan sepertimana yang disebutkan di atas tadi.

Perkembangan tentang wanita yang tidak gemar berkahwin bukan sahaja berlaku di dalam masyarakat bukan Islam tetapi juga berlaku di kalangan masyarakat Islam. Sikap demikian bukan sahaja bertentangan dengan kehendak ajaran Islam yang menggalakkan perkahwinan tetapi juga bertentangan dengan fitrah semulajadi manusia yang hidupnya memerlukan pasangan. Bahkan sunnatullah kejadian manusia, ada lelaki dan ada wanita yang saling memerlukan antara satu sama lain. Ibarat talian elektrik yang memerlukan positif dan negatif untuk melahirkan cahaya.

Di Malaysia, walaupun terdapat di dalam masyarakat Islam sikap memilih hidup membujang tetapi tidak begitu berleluasa sepertimana di barat. Walaupun demikian, pada pandangan Islam, orang yang tidak berkahwin dianggap jelek. Menyerupai para pendita Kristian. Golongan ini juga tidak akan mendapat kesempurnaan dalam agama dan mengalami kerugian di dunia dan di akhirat. Kejelekan tidak berkahwin khususnya bagi kaum wanita, adalah lebih banyak berbanding dengan lelaki. Kerana umumnya bagi kaum wanita, pintu syurga lebih banyak bermula dan berada di sekitar rumahtangga, suami dan anak-anak.

Amat mudah bagi kaum wanita untuk mendapat maqam solehah dan menjadi ahli syurga di akhirat.

Ini berdasarkan sabda Rasulullah: 'Sekiranya seorang wanita dapat melakukan empat perkara iaitu sembahyang lima waktu, puasa di bulan Ramadhan, menjaga maruah dan taat kepada suami maka masuklah syurga mana-mana yang ia kehendaki.'

Sekiranya seorang wanita itu tidak berkahwin, ia tidak akan dapat mencapai kesempurnaan pada maqam yang keempat. Walau sehebat mana sekalipun ia bersembahyang, berpuasa dan menjaga maruah, wanita yang tidak berkahwin tidak akan mendapat kelebihan pada mentaati suami. Sedangkan kelebihan mentaati suami mengatasi segala-galanya bagi seorang wanita, sehinggakan redha Allah pun bergantung kepada redha suami.

Selain daripada itu di antara kelebihan wanita yang berkahwin bahawa ia akan diberi pahala seperti pahala jihad fisabilillah (berjuang di jalan Allah) di kala mengandung. Apabila ia menyusukan anak maka setiap titik air susu akan diberi satu kebajikan. Berjaga malam kerana mengurus anak akan diberi pahala seperti membebaskan 70 orang hamba. Wanita yang berpeluh kerana terkena bahang api ketika memasak untuk keluarganya akan dibebaskan daripada neraka. Bagi wanita yang mencuci pakaian suaminya akan diberi 1000 pahala dan diampuni 2000 dosa. Lebih istimewa lagi ialah bagi wanita yang tinggal di rumah kerana mengurus hal-hal berkaitan anak-anak akan dapat tinggal bersama-sama Rasulullah saw di syurga kelak. Bahkan wanita yang rela dijimak oleh suami juga akan mendapat pahala dan lebih hebat lagi bagi wanita yang mati kerana bersalin akan mendapat pahala seperti pahala syahid.

Semua kelebihan-kelebihan ini tidak akan dapat diperolehi bagi wanita yang menolak perkahwinan. Malahan kedudukan mereka di dunia akan selalu berada di dalam fitnah dan di akhirat menjadi golongan yang rugi. Oleh itu wanita dianjurkan berkahwin apabila telah menemui pasangan yang sekufu. Yang dimaksudkan sekufu yang utama ialah dari segi iman, walaupun lelaki tersebut telah berkahwin.

Sabda Rasulullah saw: 'Apabila datang kepada kamu lelaki yang beragama dan berakhlak maka kahwinlah dia, kalau tidak akan timbul fitnah dan kebinasaan.

Para sahabat bertanya, 'Bagaimana kalau ia telah berkahwin?' Jawab baginda, 'Kahwinilah juga ia (diulang sebanyak tiga kali).' Begitulah besarnya pahala bagi wanita yang berkahwin. Tidak perlu bersusah-payah untuk keluar rumah seperti kaum lelaki atau berslogan seperti kebanyakan wanita hari ini. Hanya dengan duduk di rumah sebagai seorang isteri dan ibu sudah memperolehi pahala yang banyak. Kalau suami redha dengan perlakuan seorang isteri itu maka akan terus masuk syurga tanpa melalui kesukaran. Nikmat ini tidak akan dapat diperolehi oleh wanita yang menolak perkahwinan kerana dia telah menolak untuk menjadi calon wanita solehah yang berada di bawah naungan suami.

I Am Me...

Definition of Beauty

Beauty is a word just like any the word. Looking it up in Webster's II New Riverside Dictionary it means "A quality or combination of qualities that delights the senses or appeals to the mind."
Nice words.

When it comes to defining beauty one might envision that famous model walking down a catwalk with a frown on her face and a some fancy designer clothes on her back. Or maybe that guy in the latest action movie shirt-less that just takes your breath away, making your heart pound in your chest.

Handsome equals Beauty just depending on the person thinking about it.

Still, what is the meaning of beauty? (Don't bother looking it up again.)The missing questions to think about when asked, what defines Beauty?

How about a woman's joyful smile lighting up her face with the thought that finally, she is pregnant?

Or how about children seeing snow for the first time, ever?

Or rain needed to save a crop to a farmer?

Or even snowcapped mountains at sunset to a skier?

Or dew on prized roses at first morning light to a first time gardener?

How about the eye's filled with tears of the woman you just asked to marry you, again after 25 years?

How about love? Beauty is so many things to so many people who are all so different.

The Dictionary left out a few words when it defined Beauty. It left out "what appeals to the heart". The next time you might be asked if something is beautiful, ask yourself, does it appeal to my heart?
If it does, you just defined beauty!

Jangan Mengeluh

Kita selalu Bertanya... dan Al-Quran sudah menjawabnya...

"Apakah manusia itu mengira bahawa mereka dibiarkan saja mengatakan; "Kami telah beriman," ("I am full of faith to Allah") sedangkan mereka tidak diuji? Dan sesungguhnya Kami telah menguji orang-orang yang sebelum mereka, maka sesungguhnya Allah mengetahui orang-orang yang benar dan, sesungguhnya Dia mengetahui orang-orang yang dusta."
-Surah Al-Ankabut ayat 2-3

"Boleh jadi kamu membenci sesuatu padahal ia amat baik bagimu, dan boleh jadi pula kamu menyukai sesuatu, padahal ia amat buruk bagimu, Allah mengetahui sedang kamu tidak mengetahui."
- Surah Al-Baqarah ayat 216

"Allah tidak membebani seseorang itu melainkan sesuai dengan kesanggupannya."
- Surah Al-Baqarah ayat 286

"Janganlah kamu bersikap lemah, dan janganlah pula kamu bersedih hati, padahal kamulah orang-orang yang paling tinggi darjatnya, jika kamu orang-orang yang beriman."
- Surah Al-Imran ayat 139

"Wahai orang-orang yang beriman! Bersabarlah kamu (menghadapi segala kesukaran dalam mengerjakan perkara-perkara yang berkebajikan), dan kuatkanlah kesabaran kamu lebih daripada kesabaran musuh, di medan perjuangan), dan bersedialah (dengan kekuatan pertahanan di daerah-daerah sempadan) serta bertaqwalah (be fearful of Allah The Almighty) kamu kepadaAllah supaya, kamu berjaya (mencapai kemenangan)."

"Dan mintalah pertolongan (kepada Allah) dengan jalan sabar dan mengerjakan sembahyang; dan sesungguhnya sembahyang itu amatlah berat kecuali kepada orang-orang yang khusyuk"
- Surah Al-Baqarah ayat 45

"Sesungguhnya Allah telah membeli dari orang-orang mu'min, diri, harta mereka dengan memberikan syurga untuk mereka... ?
- Surah At-Taubah ayat 111

"Cukuplah Allah bagiku, tidak ada Tuhan selain dariNya. Hanya kepadaNya aku bertawakkal."
- Surah At-Taubah ayat 129

"...dan janganlah kamu berputus asa dari rahmat Allah. Sesungguhnya tiada berputus asa dari rahmat Allah melainkan kaum yg kafir."
- Surah Yusuf ayat 12

Mutiara Kata

Yang memimpin wanita bukan akalnya, melainkan hatinya

Lima Kunci Untuk Mendapat Bantuan Allah

oleh Ustaz Aziz

Ada banyak persoalan yang melingkari kehidupan kita, baik masalah peribadi, keluarga, kerja atau lebih besar daripada itu. Seiring dengan masalah yang di hadapi, banyak pula cara boleh kita lakukan untuk menyelesaikannya. Kita boleh mengatasinya menerusi kecerdasan akal, kemampuan fizikal, harta kekayaan, perhubungan atau apa sahaja. Namun bagi saya sendiri, tidak ada yang paling ampuh selain meminta pertolongan Allah SWT sambil berusaha.

Mengapa pertolongan Allah? Tidak ada satu masalah pun terjadi, kecuali atas izin Allah. Semuanya ada dalam gengaman Allah. Dalam keadaan demikian, alangkah mudahnya jika Allah membuka jalan kemudahan bagi sesiapa yang ditimpa masalah. Disebabkan itu, masalah terbesar dalam hidup adalah ketika kita tidak mendapat pertolongan Allah.

Seberat mana persoalan akan menjadi ringan bila dibantu Allah. Soalnya, bagaimana agar kita ditolong Allah? Jawapanya ada di dalam Al-Quran, surah Thalaaq, ayat dua dan tiga, yang bermaksud " Barangsiapa yang bertaqwa kepada Allah, nescaya dia akan menyediakan baginya jalan keluar. Dan memberinya rezeki dari arah yang tidak diduga. Dan barangsiapa yang bertawakal kepada Allah nescaya Allah akan mencukupkan (keperluan)nya. Sesungguhnya Allah melaksanakan urusan (yang dikehendaki)Nya. Sesungguhnya Allah menentukan setiap sesuatu"

Jadi, kunci pembuka bantuan Allah ada di dalam ketakwaan kita. Semakin takwa kita, semakin terbuka lebar pintu pertolongan Allah. Sebaliknya, semakin ingkar kita, semakin tertutup rapat pintu pertolongan Allah.

Pertama Mencintai Masjid
Masjid adalah rumah Allah yang ada di bumi.

Pertolongan Allah akan datang kepada sesiapapun yang cinta dan gemar memakmurkan masjid.

Kedua Solat Tahajud
Sepertiga malam terakhir adalah waktu yang sangat dicintai Allah.

Sangat rugi yang mensia-siakan waktu sepertiga malam terakhir.
Sebab ia telah mensia-siakan datangnya pertolongan allah.

Ketiga Rajin Bersedekah
Amalan ini sungguh luar biasa.

Dengan bersedekah, rezeki, urusan menjadi mudah, kita pun terhindar daripada musibah.
Jaminan daripada Allah demikian pasti kepada ahli sedekah.

Keempat Bantu Orang Lain
Sesungguhnya Allah akan menolong orang yang gemar membantu saudaranya dan permudahkan urusan orang lain, nescaya Allah akan permudahkan urusan kita.

Kelima Banyak Berselawat
Berselawat kepada Rasulullah SAW adalah amalan yang terpuji.

Cinta akan Rasul dan bila Allah sudah cinta, pertolongannya akan terbuka bagi kita.
