Syawal 1432H

We have been missing people during Eid since 8(?) years. The last family picture taken was during AbeApih’s wedding five years back. After that the siblings move around and it was hard to get everyone at the same place and time. But I guess wedding would do the job because this Saturday, The Lazims will be reunited again wehoo

But thats not the point of this post haha. We just wanna wish you all Selamat Hari Raya, Maaf Zahir dan Batin. May the blessing showers you and your loved ones.

The Two Wolves

One evening an old man told his son about a battle that goes on inside people.

He said, “Son, the battle is between 2 wolves inside us all. One is evil – it is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, guilt, lies, and ego. The other wolf is good-it is joy, peace, love, serenity, humanity, kindness, faith, compassion, truth and hope.”

The son asked his father. “Which wolf wins?”

The old man replied “The one you feed”

Looking for the Blessing

Find the blessing with any possible mean. Some with the prayer, some by dua’, some by zikr, some with patient, some by reading, some by teaching, some by being good, some by thinking, some by learning, some by helping others, some by crying, some by fighting, some by searching and some by realising the mistakes that have been done.

Whatever the ways are, as long as it is the blessing from the God, we are on the safe lane. Hopefully the blessing is long lasting and never ending. If not, at the very least we must end our life with His blessing, with the good ending, insyaallah.

Meeting The Master XV

I met Cikgu Zulkifli bin Ismail or well known as Cikgu Zul Pasir Tumbuh (Pasir Tumbuh is the place where he lives and it needs to be stated or else people might get confused with Allahyarham Cikgu Zul) when I was in the upper secondary school. He was introduced to me by my beloved teachers, Ayah Su and CIkgu Yie.

However that was just the normal meeting as it did not have much meaning to my silat journey. My trainings were the routines where I had my silat practice at school and at Ayah Su’s gelanggang. The extra might be helping the teachers in trainings my friends at other schools.

Later, if I am not mistaken after I have sit for my SPM examination, I was promoted to have extra tuition under the guidance of Cikgu Zul. I was told to go and learn from him because he could show me something that might be different from what I have encountered before. It is actually comes under the same umbrella to what I have learned but it is seen from different point of view or approach.

I felt very lucky as I have the chance to learn something I believe very valuable from him. The learning process was like a drill where I need to intensively polish my skills and instinct. Among the first batch students who came along with me was Abe Di, Redo and Hafiz. However, it was not long before as I was called to further my study to Kedah for a while and then to KL. I only have the chance to meet him during holidays, which was far from enough.

Cikgu Zul’s philosophy in silat is to learn something practical and proven to be efficient based on the concrete evidence. Therefore he does not feel shame to ask around and meet other grandmasters asking about martial art. He learns from other silat and martial art as well and currently still learning. He would also suggest me to go here and there to seek for more to deepen the understanding about the art. To my disappointment, only a few of his suggestion can be entertain because of time consuming and my other commitment. huhuhu

The knowledge and skills that he pours are really appreciated and only God can repay them. Thanks Cikgu Zul.. huhuhu

Al-Quran By Heart

God shows his greatness in these kid. They are able to memorise the whole Quran by heart. Masyaallah..

A documentary about children memorising quran: Part 1

There are 1.6 billion Muslims in the world, many of whom grapple with the role religion should play in their lives, and the lives of their children. Each year during Ramadan, more than a hundred of the best young students from more than 70 countries across the Islamic world converge on Cairo for Egyptʼs International Holy Koran Competition, one of the Islamic worldʼs most prestigious contests. Some of the competitors are as young as seven, and several have memorized the entire 600-page Koran without actually speaking Arabic.
