Random Opinions

Baru nyadar kalo terakhir posting was almost 5 months ago, so, this is my first post of 2017.. yeay.. how productive I am..

As the title said this is going to be a random posts of varying thoughts that scramble inside my brain. But I try to limit it to 3 opinions or maybe two.. pretty much depends on my mood to write.

Islam, Gay, and Rejection.

No.. these three things has no relation at all in this post, I just want to share my thoughts about these three topics individually.

Islam

Islam is a religion (yaelaaah anak TK juga tau).. Ok.. not going to talk about the definition of Islam. Why I want to throw words over this topic, ini adalah akibat melihat postingan di Instagram @jenk_kelin_official  (ketauan banget eike kepo ama akun gosip) Jadi ceritanya opini IJK kali ini adalah mengenai Islam. Actually it has nothing to do with postingan Mbak Raline, but more to the comments dari para komentator.. Nowadays people or the netizen they say.. right??… don’t seem to be too keen on the content posted by the media or social media.. Mau itu di youtube or IG.. mesti langsung menuju kolom komen.. Sooo… kembali ke laptop… Ada yang ngasi komen “setiap agama mengajarkan kebaikan..”, ” semua agama sama”.. and the whole nine yards about respecting other people religion.. bla..bla… And yang kocak menurut saya adalah postingan di akun youtube gamer ganteng … I want to laugh so loud at the so-called Muslim representative of that four youtubers.. Lo Islam but has no pride on your own religion.. just for the sake of TOLERANSI.. Toleransi my ass… if you can’t defend your religion out loud lebih baik zip it.. that big mouth of yours..

I’ve been living in non-muslim country for almost 7 + 1 years.. Udah ngerasa being minority.. and I know what tolerance means.. but as a Muslim .. I know that my religion is the best one.. but I respect other people religions, because I believe people with different religion from me will also have the same thought as mine.. that our religion is the best.. otherwise we wouldn’t be the follower of that religion.. Ok.. sampe sini paham yaa… Kalo analogi saya seperti ini.. Every mother will think that they children is their world.. the best of the best.. no children in the world can compete with their own flesh and blood.. BUT.. bukan berarti si orang tua gak menghormati anak orang lain and menjelek-jelekan anak orang lain.. tapi anak sendiri tetaplah yang utama.. It may not be the best analogy for religion.. but I hope you can get where I’m getting at..  So, never ever say that setiap agama sama.. kalo gak kenapa gak gonta-ganti agama aja setiap 2 hari sekali..  Because deep down we all know that faith is not something that very easy to trade..

“Tuhan tidak perlu dibela, Dia sudah Maha segalanya, Belalah mereka yang diperlukan tidak adil” the most ridicule statement I ever read.. Hei.. Allah is nothing like His creation and vice versa.. Jangan merendahkan Allah dengan menempatkan Dia at our level.. siapa kita yang gak lebih berharga daripada pasir dilautan… we’re made from clay.. setetes mani (harus ditengok pake mikroskop dengan pembesaran ampe 400x baru keliatan jelas) .. Sebagai Muslim sudah kewajiban kita membela Islam.. kalau enggak untuk apa Rasulullah capek2 berperang.. untuk apa para sahabat bergelimang darah di medan perang..

Gay

Gay is laki suka sama laki and gak suka perempuan (Febriana.D, 2017). 17 Mei kemaren rupanya hari Gay sedunia.. ada pulak yang kekgini ya… ngeliat gay wedding di Trang, ngeliat Mr. Gay world 2017 (ntah iya itu nama kontesnya).. ada yang kemayu ada yang hensom abess..  If I disagree to the “normalisation” of LGBTQ they will call me homophobic right?? Kata Om Wiki Homofobia adalah berbagai sikap negatif terhadap homoseksualitas seseorang atau terhadap orang yang teridentifikasi sebagai lesbian, gay, biseksual atau transgender.  Looking at this definition I guess you can call me homophobic although I think I’m not.. I don’t hate the person, I don’t like what they did/do/doing/done…. Because it self destructive, whether they realised it or not.. Something that against the fitrah is never a sign of a good thing..  Benar kata Ustadz Adi Hidayat jika seseorang tidak mengakui kalau mereka sakit they will never try to find the cure. I wont deny that sexual tendency toward same sex does exist.. Kalau Allah bilang it’s a sin and your desire toward that direction is very strong.. itu artinya you’re being tested.. are you going to give up to the desire or resist it. Yang namanya naik level pastinya bukan ujian ecek-ecek. You might have to live for the rest of your life repressing the urge.. Kalau analogi yang mau saya buat kayak orang yang prokrastinasi.. Is procrastination normal?? according to several experts to certain extent it’s not normal and even destructive. Tapi don’t we all have the tendency to procrastinate?? For some the desire to procrastinate is so strong they even procrastinate to procrastinate.. Yaa gak usah jauh2 lah.. I’m the best example of this behavior.. Nunda2 pekerjaan memang awalnya enak.. nonton dulu aah.. bikin ini dulu aaah.. kesini dulu aaah… akhirnya ketika time is running out.. mulailah gabuk manok gabuk itek ampe depresi sendiri.. Yeap.. I’ve been there and ampe kena panic attack.. Inti dari analogi ini adalah.. dosa itu memang mengikuti apa maunya nafsu.. and it always seems so good and makes us happy .. but its very superficial and definitely wont benefit you in a long term (baca: di akhirat) .. If there are things that God does not want us to do even how tempting it was and we think it is the best for us.. believe me IT IS NOT… 

Okay back to the Gay topic.. I just hope that whoever contracted to this disease.. please get yourself help… You are NOT normal.. You are SICK… and SICKNESS is not a sin.. Being sick is actually blessing in disguise if we patient and we try find a cure that in accordance with the sharia law and most importantly to accept it as part of Allah’s test.

Rejection

Okay last part is where I do the curhat.

I have a confession ” I am afraid of rejection”

Ditolak itu rasanya sakit ya.. and the most difficult part is to move on and act like nothing ever happen. Makanya terkadang ketika ingin meminta sesuatu ke seseorang I have to be sure that I won’t received any rejection.. otherwise I’ll be broken to pieces (sedikit lebay)

But, this heartbroken tragedy only happen if I got rejected by someone who is dear to me.. If I don’t really close to them or just an acquaintance being rejected wont hurt that much.. still hurts tho but manageable..

I have to learn to accept when people say NO to me as much as I have to learn to say NO to people asking me for help.

Okay lah.. udah malam banget.. Time to hit the bed.. BeTe guwe ama si Nong Nok dah dua malam AC dikamar matek.. kamar jadi spa..

Nasihat Ali bin Abi Thalib

Sayyidina Ali bin Abi Thalib Radhiyallahu Anhu (RA) atau semoga Allah ridha padanya. Left many nasihat for us the follower of Rasullullah (the Muslim). Beberapa dari nasihat beliau antara lain adalah:

Jangan membenci siapapun

Terkadang dalam berinteraksi dengan sesama yang namanya friksi tidak bisa dihindari. Tekadang perbedaan pendapat juga umum terjadi. Terkadang perbedaan pandangan hidup dan nilai yang dianut juga menyebabkan pertikaian. Tapi kita tidak boleh membenci siapapun. Mungkin disini kata2 “jangan benci orangnya, tapi benci perbuatannya” lebih applicable. People can change, no matter how difficult for me to believe that but the fact is to a certain extent it is true. But change doesn’t always mean positive, it also can have a negative mean. Walaupun orang telah menyakiti kita dan merebut hak kita, kita tidak boleh membenci mereka. Ya Allah, sulitnya untuk melakukan hal tersebut..

Jangan bersedih berlebihan

Siapa yang gak pernah sedih, kalau dibilang jangan berlebihan pun sulit untuk menentukan apa yang dimaksud dengan berlebihan. Karena setiap manusia has different ability to cope with pain and sadness. Tapi saya meyakini kalau sebenarnya kita bisa mengetahui kapan kita sudah sedih berlebihan. Saat Allah menguji kita tentunya bisa dengan metode apapun, tapi we must learn to accept our test dengan ikhlas. So it will be be rewarded handsomely by Allah.

Hiduplah dalam kesederhanaan

Walau harta banyak kita disuruh untuk hidup sedeharna, reality right now gak ada uang pun bergaya cukup fancy. Entah apa yang telah dikorban just for the sake to own the latest trend. Saya cukup familiar dgn term “Uang uang sendiri, bebas dong beli apa aja toh pake uang sendiri” Yaaaa apa urusan sama uang orang, apa urusan with the way people spent their money, kan gak merugikan orang.. Gatal rasanya pengen bilang, kata siapa gak merugikan orang lain.. Gak liat fenomena anak muda sekarang yang demi gadget terbaru rela menjual apapun?? Don’t you think by showing off your wealth will make others want to have what you want no matter what, they must have it.. jadilah jual diri atau nyolong. Selamat menabung dosa.

Berbuatlah kebaikan sekalipun banyak musibah

The more you help others the less you feel sad about your own. I often feel this way, it feels good to be useful to others. Sometime I found it peaceful. Tapi yang namanya kesempatan untuk berbuat baik tidak selalu datang easily. So, when the opportunity come don’t waste it.

Perbanyaklah memberi walaupun sedang susah

I remember one story from my friend, she has a friend who like to give charity. One day when they were talking the friend was checking his wallet to found only 100.000 IDR in his wallet and he said “Waduh, sudah saatnya sedekah ni” Keluarin uang ngasih sedekah. Gak lama kemudian sore harinya dipanggil bendahara dong, uang ngajar udah keluar. He recieved more money that he give for charity. Masya Allah…

Tersenyumlah walau hati menangis

Hide your pain with a smile, menangis itu perlu tapi gak perlu diumbar.. Cukup Allah saja yang melihat airmata kita. I always pray that nobody will see me shed a tear..

Jangan memutus doa untuk saudara mukmin

Situasi saat ini miris rasanya melihat saudara seiman kita membela seorang sosok penista agama dengan alasan Agama gak perlu dibela, jangan lebay kali. Sulit untuk tidak membenci mereka let alone to pray for them. Seharusnya didoakan ya supaya mereka tidak makin melenceng jauh dari dosa..

Ya Allah please help me and guide me to practice those nasihah.. So I can be a better person..aaminn

 

 

Mencoba Romantis

Mungkin kata romantis tak ada dalam kamusku

Mungkin kata cinta tak selalu terucap

Mungkin kata sayang tak jua tersampaikan

Tapi ketika aku melihatmu

Kata-kata menjadi tak berarti

Karena kau adalah kata2 tersebut

Karena kau romantis menjadi kenyataan

Karena kau cinta menjadi wujud

karena kau sayang menjadi …..

DARN can’t write any good sentences in Bahasa.. 

My language skill is deteriorating 

Curhat

Where to start ya..  Sebenarnya berat kali loh… Mungkin ini pembenaran Ya Rabb.. Aku minta maaf, You created me as Your best creation.. Best creation should be better at anything; physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. Best creation should be stronger than any other creations at any given situations.. Because You have designed us that way.. As Your grand design we should only be weaken at Your will not because we choose to be weak.. But I must admit that I’m weak ya Rabb.. Money has blinded me.. I’m sorry for my excuses.. But, I want to experience winter again ya Rabb..

to be continued…

My future project

Dear readers,

Just a quick one, while I still on fire. I want to announce that I want to try something that I’ve started ages ago during my days as a student in junior high school. At that time I’ve written a story, fiction of course. The story was about a school girl love life, the story wasn’t meant to be pure fiction because all the character in this story basically all my classmate. So..ya.. they were pretty real, but the story of course not.. well some maybe not, because there were definitely some love stories going on in my class at that time.. I’m literally smiling right now reminiscing the fun time that I had in the class. I wrote the story on a book, hand written of course.. no computer back at that days..every once a week I gave my friend who sat next to me the new story, she is my editor plus the one who encouraged me to write religiously. But the irony is I cant even remember her name right now.. SHAME ON ME…!! I’m quite productive back then, but of course I never got the chance to finish it. Not to mention I didn’t remember where I put the book, it went lost and nowhere to be found. How I wish I can read it all over again.. I can’t recalled why I stop writing the story, probably because I was already in my last year at school and too busy preparing myself for the exam and entering the high school of course. Okay so that’s was just the introduction, I keep saying in most of my post that its going to be a quick one, but I guess it was never gonna be as quick as I wanted to be in the first time.

So back to our main objective, which I assume you guys already have the glanced of what my project will be. Yess.. I’m going to write fiction again.. okay.. don’t be to happy about it, because I’m known for my “hangat2 taik ayam” attitude. Yes I’m on fire right now, but fire doesn’t always constantly burning it flames. So.. That is why I’m putting this idea in this blog so it can act as my reminder every time I get lost.

Here I’m going to post several youtube videos.. because I got this idea basically by listening to these song

Thats all folks..

Write to you soon…

Love and peace!

Student daily prayers

Indeed Allah SWT is An-Naassir and As-Samee, The helper and The All-Listening!

Duas Before Studying

اللَّهُمَّ انْفَعْنِي بِمَا عَلَّمْـتَنِي وَ عَلِّمْنِي مَا يَنْفَعُنِي

Allahumma infa’nii bimaa ‘allamtanii wa’allimnii maa yanfa’uunii

Oh Allah! Make useful for me what you have taught me and teach me knowledge that will be useful to me.

Dua while Studying Something Difficult

اللَّهُمَّ لاَ سَهْلاً إِلّاَ مَا جَعَلّتَهٌ سَهْلاً وَأَنّتَ تَجّعَلَ الحَزَنَ إِذَا شِئتَ سَهْلاً

Allâhumma lâ sahla illâ mâ ja‘altahu sahlâ wa anta taj‘alu al-hazana idhâ shi’ta sahlâ.

Oh Allah! Nothing is easy except what You have made easy. If You wish, You can make the difficult easy.

Duas For Increasing Knowledge

اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَسْألُكَ عِلْماً نَافِعاَ وَعَمَلاً صَالِحاً وَحِفْظاً قَوِيّاً وَفَهْماً كَامِلاً وَعَقْلاً سَالِماً بِرَحْمَتِكَ يَا اَرْحَمَ ٱلرَّاحِمِينَ

Allāhumma inni asaluka ‘amalan nāfi‘ā Wa ‘amalan swālihā hifzan qawiyyā wa fahman kāmilā wa aqlan sālimā birahmatika yā arhamar rāhimeen

Oh Allah I ask You for beneficial knowledge and good deeds and a strong memory and a perfect understanding and a sound intellect by Your mercy, O the most Merciful of the merciful ones.

And a final one short and easy to remember…

رَبِّ زِدْنِىْ عِلْمًا
Rabbi zidni ilmaa
Oh my Lord, Increase me in knowledge.

Saat titipan diambil

Innalillahi wa innailaihi raji’un.. “We surely belong to Allah and to Him we shall return”

Just a short one today, that I’d like to express my feeling.. I promise I won’t be long..

Just heard the news today that my sister’s father in law has passed away this morning, it suddenness stroked me. I think it’s normal for us to feel that this news weren’t true, am i hearing it right.. Yep denial is our first defence mechanism.. But I know no one would ever make such a joke about other people death.. The truth is  not always happy ending..but it is what it is

The last time I spoke to Bapak was in the hospital when we were waiting for Lila operation. He doesn’t usually talk that much to me, but as far as remember every time we met he always have something to say to me even if it’s only a small chit chat. But this time was different he talked a lot, I can’t say whether it was a “sign” for me or he felt bored and got no one to talk to at that time. He talked about his experience when he visited Thailand, he went to Songkhla and Hatyai and he told me about his experiences visiting northwestern part of Malaysia.. He seems to like travelling very much, he also told me about his time in Bali and said to me that Bali is overrated, nothing special about that island.. and we were laughing after that.

I know that his wife and children must be the one who felt grieve the most as for me I also feel very sorry for them. I was just thinking that there were too many people that close to me had been taken away this year, were this a sign or what.. maybe it has nothing to do with “sign” or whatever beside the Prophet said that there is a lesson to learn on the event of death and maybe their time has come.. and for all of us we just wait until our time up and Allah sends His angel to pick us up.. I just hope that Bapak died in a good way.. That Allah will accepts his good deeds and put Bapak in the best place in the graveyard..

As I always said to those who have departed … “until we meet again.. in sya Allah in Jannah..”
