It's about bracing yourself!

Assalamualaikum and a very good day mate!
Dear Readers,

I always heard people say, "hey! brace yourself!" before.
Well, mostly in movies.
Never thought that I have to say that to myself now.
I'm about to get my braces now.
Yes! finally. I know.
Never had the perfect time to do so during last 5 years.
Simply because I was spending my most enthralling 5 years in a boarding school. SMAPK
This situation I was in made it a bit difficult to undergo orthodontic treatment (as what dentistry studenst would prefer to call it) or 'braces' as the name most people are accustomed with.


Firstly, yes I know a few tooth will be 'sacrificed' even if they are perfectly fine and healthy.
Second, I know it will cost my parents a few thousands to get it done, especially if we do it in a private clinic.
Well, thirdly, no one ever warned me before about how excruciating it can be.
Never see that coming.
Now, I have to say to myself, "hey! brace yourself man!"
Having my 1st premolar teeth removed was not a hunky-dory experience.
The pain was subhanAllah!
I believe, even the current strongest man on earth cannot breath easy with the pain.
Just imagine, you have a big cut in your gum and at the same time it feels itchy right on the cut spot.
How does that feel?

Haven't remember the same tormenting pain since last 10 years whereby I had my spoiled teeth removed.
I take this as kifarah for my sins. I have indeed sinned a lot for the past 17 years.
Hoping It will lessen my bad deeds( sins) that I've committed.

For now, I cannot talk much as each word comes with a sting in the gum.
Hope it'll be all good this next Tuesday.
Yeah, dream on atif! another tooth coming out! not going to be easy...toot toot....
And you know what they say:
No pain No gain!
and oh yes: beauty is pain!

Thanks for reading guys!
Take care!

It's about 'give and take'

Assalamualaikum and a very good day mate!
Dear Readers,

Turning 18 is just another process of life that everyone will have the chance to feel (If they live that long, insya Allah).
It's just the way you celebrate it, that makes it a bit different from the past birthdays.
Instead of just accepting things, why not we learn the meaning of giving.
As when turning 18, we will not be attached or bind to the child act 2001, there are few new things that we can do now. Good things are what I meant.
To celebrate and make my 18th birthday a little bit differently, I planned to donate my blood to the blood bank.
Nevertheless, something went awry and I couldn't do it on the 22nd February.
But, when there's a will, there's a way right?
Thus, earlier today I made my way to the general hospital to do the deed as planned few days ago.
Donating blood is not a hard thing to do.
Just go to the information counter, tell the receptionist what you want to do, she will give you a visitor's tag:

Then, off you go to the lab. Lab assistants and nurses will help you out for the rest.
Donating blood is not really painful, well, maybe a bit when the nurse try to poke the needle to your blood vessel. It was just like being pinch by your baby sister or brother. Nothing much.
About 15 minutes or so after the blood 'packet' is full, the nurse will stop the blood flow to the packet.

Then she will keep your blood in the blood bank after several procedures.
After that, the nurse will let you rest for a while and give a goody bag as a symbol of gratitude.
Sound easy right?
It is! Piece of cake, as easy as ABC and you name it.

It only takes your courage and willingness to do this deed.
Who knows. One day, it could be one of your beloved ones who need the blood supply.
Do keep in mind the blood bank is lack of supply day by day.
It wont hurt to spend a few minutes to help.
Oh ya. After 17 years of living, only now I know my blood is in the group O.
I'm a Universal Donor!
Glad to know it but a little worry, because according to the biological knowledge I only can accept blood from the same group(group O)
Suddenly, it makes me thinking about teacher Azma's Biology class. =)


At the end of the process you will get a little book which will keep all the information on your blood donating activity:

Before you go there, make sure you consume sufficient amount of water, to ensure that the process will go smoothly.

I think that's all for now..
Thanks for reading guys!
Take care!

It's me, thanking you!

Assalamualaikum and a very good day mate!
Dear Readers,

1)Rashid(tak sangka aku, tepat 12..haha)
2)Mizani(thanks a lot babe!)
3)Faten(ko gangsa je la ye faten..haha)

And a special thank you to miza for spending some time to make a post about me on her blog!
Appreciate it!

That's all for now.
Thanks for reading.
and take care!

It's about getting older

Assalamualaikum and a very good day mate!
Dear Readers,

About 6 hours and 30 minutes from now(malaysia time) I'm about to enter a new chapter of my life. The chapter of 'Adulthood'. Turning legal maybe is something that most people like but for now I'm quite reluctant to 'go' there just yet.
I love being someone who people always refer as a kid. Less problems, less things to think about. As much as I could recall, life as a kid is really exciting. Everything is new to you and everything is fun to do.
But yeah, there are a lot of 'limits' when you're a kid.
I miss the phrases:
"hey kid, you're too young to do that"
"hey you, you still a boy"
"Please get your parents' consent first"
I miss to hear those words. Probably after this, nobody would say something like that to me again.
But hey!
Life goes on.
Viva La Vida.
Live your life as it is.
Allah still give me the chance to live.
I want to do something different for tomorrow.
I'll let you guys know what it is.
Later perhaps.
Hello 18! goodbye 17.........

Thanks for reading guys!

It's how to perform Dhuha prayer

Assalamualaikum and a very good day mate.

Dear Readers,

I know it has been a while since my last post and I'm really sorry for it. No excuses. I was just not in the 'mood' to write on this blog. But thinking of my promise to write about Dhuha prayer, my heart is not at peace as long as I haven't keep that promise.
Maybe most of the people who read this blog had already know how to perform it, but just want to share with anybody who doesn't know how to do it,
So here it goes:

I'll write it in Malay so that it will not be wrong translated and easier to understand as I believe most who read this blog can understand Malay.

1.Niat(dalam hati)
2.Lafaz niat
Sahaja aku solat sunat Dhuha, 2 rakaat kerana Allah Ta'ala.
3.Baca Al-fatihah.
4.Diikuti surah As-Syams( surah As-Syams tidak wajib, boleh bace apa2 sahaja surah)
5.kemudian diikuti dengan rukun solat yang lain. Sama seperti solat yang lain.
6.Rakaat kedua dibaca Al-Fatihah dan diikuti dengan surah Ad-Dhuha( surah Ad-Dhuha juga tidak wajib, tidak membatalkan solat jika dibaca surah lain)
7. sehingga sempurna rukun solat.

solat ini boleh dilakukan sekurang-kurangnya 2 rakaat dengan satu salam. Boleh dilakukan sehingga 8 atau ada yang mengatakan 12 rakaat. Dipisahkan dengan satu salam bagi setiap dua rakaat.

Apa yang penting solat itu diniatkan dengan betul, syarat-syaratnya dipenuhi dan rukun-rukunnya disempurnakan dengan baik dan sempurna.
Waktu yang afdhal untuk malakukannya ialah antara 10 pagi hingga 1 petang, ataupun satu per empat siang mengikut kitab Al-Majmu' karangan Imam Nawawi.

Kemudian, selepas selesai solat Dhuha, seelok-eloknya bacalah Doa ini.

Ya Allah, bahawasanya waktu Dhuha itu waktu Dhuha Mu, kecantikan itu adalah kecantikan-Mu, keindahan itu keindahan-Mu, kekuatan itu kekuatan Mu, kekuasaan itu kekuasaan Mu, dan perlindungan itu perlidungan Mu. Ya Allah, jika rezekiku masih diatas langit, turunkanlah! dan jika ada didalam bumi keluarkanlah! Jika sukar, mudahkanlah! Jika haram, sucikanlah! Jika masih jauh, dekatkanlah! Berkat waktu Dhuha, keagungan, keindahan, kekuatan, dan kekuasaanmu, limpahkanlah kepada kami segala yang Engkau telah limpahkan kepada hamba-hamba Mu yang soleh.

Wallah hu alam bissawab. Jika ada kesilapan sila perbetulkan.

That's all for now...
Thanks for reading guys!

P/S:dah update dah miza...happy now?=)

It's something should be shared with brothers and sisters

Assalamualaikum and a very good day mate!

Dear Readers......

For so long I've bee writing crap(mostly, not all) so I decided to write something that is beneficial to
the people who read it, especially to muslims.

Pernah dengar solat Dhuha?
Pernah? tak pernah? pernah? tak pernah?
mane satu ni?..haha..
ni nak share skit pengalaman pengamalan solat dhuha.
rutin hidup di rumah dan di sekolah sangat berbeza. Oleh kerana iman hamba ini hanyalah senipis kulit bawang, dah selalu tinggal amalan solat ni. Maaf. Saye akan cube perbaiki diri. Tapi mase kat sekolah dulu..zaman dulu2..ceyh...padahal baru je tinggalkan sekolah..
selalu jugak amalkan. bukan ujub dan riak. cuma tauladan yang boleh dikongsi bersama. satu pengalaman mudah bab solat dhuha.

Pada satu hari. semasa gap exam SPM. di pagi yang hening. perutku berasa lapar kerana terlepas sarapan di DM( singkatan dewan makan). tu la.sape suruh tido balik lepas subuh.hah! kantoi!haha...biasa la.duduk asrama. study lebih skit malam2.esok pagi mula la rase ngantok tahap tan sri.ku pegi la jenguk locker. mengharap ada makanan tersorok di dalam.Tapi.ape yang kudapat?ape yang kudapat?ape yang kudapat?hampa....hampa...hampeh.kosong melainkan ada pakaian sahaja.pergi ke locker member terdekat.malas nak pegi jauh2.tgk2 pun smue tengah member pun kosong.almaklum la.dah nak habis sekolah.mane ade orang simpan stock banyak2 dah. keluar pun boleh hari2.
ok2.tidak mengapa atif.lalu kubawa hati yang duka dan perut yang lapa ke bilik air. pergi siap2 la.nak pegi kelas. study.siap berpakaian.segak, tampan dan berani...haha..jangan gelak...itu ditokok tambah. teringat nak pergi masjid. bukan nak solat subuh. subuh dah solat subuh tadi.kat masjid la. bukan sodorm(singkatan solat didalam dorm).
dalam hati asyik mengeluh.lapar.lapar.lapar.LAPAR!!!
ku turun ke masjid untuk menunaikan solat Dhuha. bak kata ustazah Sa'diah kepada ku dan beberapa teman yang lain. "jangan tinggal solat Dhuha ya". baiklah ustazah. akan kulakukan. bukan kerana ustazah, tapi kerana Allah. (tiba2 rasa berdosa pulak sekarang.dah selalu tinggal.ok2.lepas ni jangan tinggal selalu). selepas selesai. ku teruskan perjalanan ke sekolah.study2. SPM tak habis lagi. biar la perut lapar sekejap. Lunch nanti makan la. kata hati kecil ku. ku lintas laluan didepan bilik PP sekolah.(budak SMAPK tau la kat mane). ku lihat cikgu2 tengah ada jamuan kecil. baru lepas meeting la tu.wahhh...menggugatnya iman.dah la tengah lapar giler ni. ku perlahankan gerak kaki ke gear satu. mengharap ada cikgu yang nak panggil masuk. setiap langkah kakiku diiringi dengan harapan.......
Hampa. tiada suara guru kedengaran. Takpa2. ku teruskan langkah ke atas untuk ke kelas.
sampai di anak tangga terakhir yang berhampiran dengan kelas ku, tiba2 diri ini terdengar suara serak2 basah. atif! atif!....teka siapa.teka siapa.teka siapa.
siapa lagi kalau bukan guru chemistry ku yang sporting, Puan Najibah.
Ku menoleh ke arahnya lalu dia menyambung bicara. atif, kamu dah sarapan?pegi la kat bilik PP.ada makanan.ada kuih.ada kuey teow.pegi la.ajak kawan2 sekali.
bibirku tersenyum bersama hati yang girang. ALHAMDULILLAH!!!!!
ok cikgu.menurut perintah.terima kasih cikgu!
ku berlari ke kelas untuk meletak barang. eh2. ade hajar tengah sorang2. ape la die buat kat sini sorang2. tengah memegang Nokia express musicnya sambil text2.kantoi bawak fon kat skola.haha.rileks.perkara biasa. text dengan siapa la agaknya. mestila Mr. Prince. eh2.dah melencong ni.ok2 sambung.pegi la berlari ke bilik PP.dari bawah ku jerit kepada member2 yang lapar supaya turun bawah.
(bdk smapk memang takde mase tak lapar)haha...
ok.ku noktah kan cerita di sini.................yang selebihnya tak penting untuk diceritakan.

Apa yang cuba disampaikan. amalan solat Dhuha ni memang banyak fadhilatnya. sesungguhnya Allah Maha mengetahui hati hamba2nya yang sedang mengeluh.
Ku percaya berkat solat Dhuha pagi tu. Ku dapat apa yang diinginkan pagi itu juga. tak sampai 10 minit. Itulah bukti kekuasaan Allah. Tapi INGAT. solat Dhuha dilakukan bukanlah supaya diniatkan atau dilakukan kerana mengharap untuk mendapat harta yang banyak atau mendapat apa2. Niat la IKHLAS kerana Allah. semoga Allah akan memakbulkan doa dan harapan di hati.

Cara2 melakukan solat Dhuha?
Post yang akan datang saya akan tulis.

okay people!!!

Thanks for reading guys!!!

p/s:diri ini tidak sempurna.terima apa yang baik.singkirkan apa yang tidak.
