stok surat abis (utilize your cell phone II)

ever felt like ‘stok surat abis’ when play the role as Imam ?  well i did, lol 🙂

just realize that i just only recite few of the same verse over-and-over-and-over-again through all the raka’at

feel bit weird (read: ashamed), that my little kid recite more fluent other verses than i am

let’s go back to square one, from Al Insan (man) to An Nas (mankind), recite by Abdul Rahman Al-Sudais, the Imam of the Grand Mosque

ripped mp3, ID3 tagged properly (hopefully), small bitrate (128kbps),
small enough to fill your iPod or cellphone, here

see ‘sick’ from the other side


Bersyukurlah buat yg sedang sakit (atau yg masih bisa merasakan sakit) hari ini

Artinya, Anda masih hidup, karena hanya orang hidup yg bisa merasakan sakit

Be grateful when you got sick

Why? Got sick, means you are still alive. Because only a living-being can experience sickness

Langkah selanjutnya adalah : Anda harus berusaha agar cepat sembuh
(agar anda tetap hidup dan bisa merasakan sakit lagi di kemudian hari, dan semakin menghargai hidup)

Next step is : how to get well soon (?)

(so you can be alive again and then experience sickness again in the future, and then you will value and appreciate life more)

Semoga sehat selalu, dan selalu mendapat berkah dan rahmat-Nya

Good health to you, always,
and may HE always bless HIS barakah & rahmat to us all (wa-rahmatullahi-wa-barakatuh)

yes, you bleed just to know you’re alive… (Iris – Googoo Dols)

a < x < b (between point A and B)


Finally I decided to write this down

By no means of being the righteous or anything, as only human, please correct me if i wrote something wrong

Long posting (read it carefully)

Few months back, I conducted a verbal survey with:

  • 20 correspondents
  • 19 are Moslem from birth, age all above 30, all have a steady income
  • 3 are not married yet, 4 female, 16 male
  • 2 already taken the journey

all are my friends, survey over a friendly verbal conversations.
I asked them one direct question:

  • When will you take the  journey (again)?”

18 of them quickly responded with these answers :

  • “when i’m ready, maybe..”
  • “i don’t know…”
  • “when i’m (spiritually) ready, maybe…”
  • “when i have enough money…maybe”
  • “maybe when i’m XX…” (stating a number of a certain age)
  • “maybe after i got married..”
  • “maybe in about xx years from now…” (stating a certain number of year)
  • “after my kid is xx years old..maybe” (stating a certain age)
  • and other similiar maybe-answers

in my opinion, YOU SHOULD AVOID AND OMIT that “maybe” kind of answers..
