Two Funerals in a Day

I received SMS from my boss/partner and Ayoh Keng almost the same time immediately after I came back from my Friday prayer. We lost another common friend due to cancer at about 12.35 in the afternoon today.

Allahu Marghfirlahu Warhamhu Wa 'afiihi Wa'afu 'anhu.

Semoga Allah mencucuri Rahmat dan Mengampunkan segala dosa arwah.

Arwah seorang yang ku kenal kerana selalu bertemu semasa menghadiri mesyuarat atau seminar dan konferens yang melibatkan perbankan Islam dan insrumen sekuriti Islam. Kadang2 kami berkongsi pentas sebagai penceramah jemputan dalam sesuatu seminar. Kami berkongsi bahasa ibunda kerana sama-sama berasal dari negeri jajahan takluk Darul Naim.

AlhamdulilLah, ramai kawan-kawan penggiat dan pendokong perbankan dan sekuriti Islam hadir memberi penghormatan terakhir semasa jenazah disembahyangkan di surau Seksyen 13 Shah Alam selepas solat 'Asar sebentar tadi.

Arwah adalah rakan se-jabatan dengan Ayoh Keng.

Tazkirah Jumaat

Maksiat halang tekun beribadatOleh Hashim bin Ahmad

APAKAH kita pernah mengalami perasaan malas beribadah? Terasa berat untuk tilawah atau ada kenikmatan ketika membaca al-Quran atau solat?

Atau mungkin berasa susah bangun malam untuk qiyamulail, padahal jam dikunci untuk mengejutkan kita atau telefon bimbit sudah dipasang tetapi ketika berdering, tetap terlelap dalam tidur.
Apa yang kedengaran hanya seperti dalam mimpi dan akhirnya jam dan telefon bimbit mati sendiri atau bangun dengan setengah sedar. Selepas itu, tarik selimut dan tidur lagi. Padahal, biasanya dengan mudah boleh bangun.

Jadi, apa yang sudah terjadi dengan diri kita? Atau mungkin kita pernah merasakan mulut ini terasa berat ketika melantunkan ayat-ayat al-Quran atau mengucapkan salam kepada saudara kita. Atau mungkin kita secara sengaja memlambatkan waktu menunaikan solat?

Terkadang hati rasa meluat dengan rakan di pejabat kerana hal yang kecil atau prasangka buruk. Terkadang kita melalui hari yang ki…

Tanah Runtuh @ Bkt Antarabangsa

I have been receiving lots of calls and smses from families and concerned friends.

AlhamdulilLah, my family and I are safe. Our house is not affected. Still quite far from the site where the landslide took place.

I came to know about the landslide from a neighbour after subuh prayer. We didn't know the extent of the damage because its still dark. Only after the news started to come out in the tv then we knew it was quite serious.

I am now following the news from my in laws house in Melaka. We reached Melaka at about 11.00 am just now.

Even my friend who is currently working in Mumbai sent sms after learning about the incident from the internet.

Salam Eid ul Adha

Tuan punya blog sekeluarga akan pulang berhari raya haji di Ayer Keroh tahun ni. Ibadat korban telah pun diwakilkan kepada abang di Kelantan sepertu kebiasaannya.

Kepada yang akan bemusafir balik kampung, semoga selamat tiba ke destinasi dan selamat pulang ke KL semula.

Yes, this is a long overdue update.

In fact I didn't plan to put up any new entry until Hari Raya Haji. I did have that plan. Malas, penat dan berbagai lagi alasan. My mind is to bogged down and occupied with works that I didn't even want to try to string a sentence. So I planned that I will wish you all selamat hari raya haji before the weekend comes.

My life has turned upside down with works and crazy deadlines. Nothing new. There are few big important assignments that I am currently working on concurrently. Talking about prioritising my works, I even now have new categories for deadlines; tight deadline, crazy deadline and DROP DEAD deadline.

I didn't have the time to reply to the special request from Ayoh Keng on his entry on Riba. Heh he heh....Ayoh Keng even called to remind me to reply to his entry and to update my blog.

The truth is.....and you have heard this before, I am too busy with my works. It's a good thing that when other people are complaining about stiff …
