Dari Abi Umamah r.a katanya, aku mendengar Rasulullah s.a.w bersabda “Bacalah olehmu akan Al-Quran, sesungguhnya dia datang pada Hari Kiamat kelak memberi syafaat kepada tuannya”. – Hadis Riwayat Muslim.
"Berhijrahlah nescaya anak-anak kamu akan mewarisi kemuliaan." - Hadith Rasulullah SAW, riwayat al-Khatib daripada Aisyah RA.
Prayer (doa): "O Allah SWT! I seek refuge in You from being deprived of Your Bounty, from losing Your Security, from Your sudden revenge, & from all Your dismay." - Sahih Muslim. The above doa (prayer) are useful for the following: * Seeking protection from deprivation of Allah's Bounties; * Seeking protection from Allah's revenge & dismay.
Mengamalkan zikir dan bacaan ayat Quran tertentu Zikir dari ayat-ayat al-Quran atau asma'ul husna selain menenangkan, menjenihkan dan melunakkan hati, ia mengandungi fadilat khusus untuk keluasan ilmu, terbukanya pintu hidayah, dimudahkan faham agama, diberi kemanisan iman dan dilapangkan rezeki. Misalnya, dua ayat terakhir surah at-Taubah (ayat 128-129) jika dibaca secara konsisten tujuh kali setiap kali lepas solat, Insya-Allah dikatakan boleh menjadi sebab Allah S.W.T. melapangkan kehidupan dan memurahkan rezeki. Selain itu, salah satu nama Allah S.W.T., yakni al-Fattah (Maha Membukakan) dikatakan dapat menjadi sebab dibukakan pintu rezeki jika diwiridkan selalu. Contohnya dibaca "Ya Allah ya Fattah" berulang-ulang, diiringi doa: "Ya Allah S.W.T., bukalah hati kami untuk mengenali-Mu, bukalah pintu rahmat dan keampunan-Mu, ya Fattah ya 'Alim." Ada juga hadis menyebut, siapa amalkan baca surah al-Waqi'ah setiap malam, dia tidak akan ditimpa kepapa…
Firman Allah dalam ayat 92 surah ali-Imran yang bermaksud: Kamu sekali-kali tidak sampai kepada kebajikan (yang sempurna), sebelum kamu menafkahkan sebahagian harta yang kamu cintai. Dan apa saja yang kamu nafkah, maka sesungguhnya Allah mengetahuinya. "By no means shall you attain Al-Birr (piety, righteousness, Paradise), unless you spend (in Allah's cause) of that which you love; & whatever of good you spend, Allah SWT knows it well." Glorious Quran 3: 92. Amalan wakaf yang memberi manfaat kepada seluruh umat seperti mana yang terdapat dalam ayat al-Quran di atas telah diteruskan oleh para sahabat dan generasi seterusnya dalam memartabatkan dan mengangkat syiar Islam di seluruh dunia seperti mana Universiti al-Azhar, Mesir yang dibina di atas nama wakaf dan kesannya telah melahirkan ramai graduan pelbagai bidang pada setiap tahun. Berdasarkan sebuah hadith Rasulullah SAW riwayat Muslim iaitu yang bermaksud: Apabila mati anak Adam, akan terhentilah amalannya kecu…
We made everything on the earth adornment for it so that We could test them to see whose actions are the best. (Glorious Quran 18:7) Restrain yourself patiently with those who call on their Lord morning and evening, desiring His face. Do not turn your eyes from them, desiring the attractions of this world. And do not obey someone whose heart We have made neglectful of Our remembrance and who follows his own whims and desires and whose life has transgressed all bounds. (18:28) But as for those who believe and do right actions, We will not let the wage of good-doers go to waste. (18:30) Wealth and sons are the embellishment of the life of this world. But, in your Lord’s sight, right actions which are lasting bring a better reward and are a better basis for hope. (18:46) (Dhu’l-Qarnayn said,) ‘But as for him who believes and acts rightly, he will receive the best of rewards and we will issue a command, making things easy for him.’ (18:88) Say: ‘Shall I inform you of the greatest lose…
Abu Daud meriwayatkan dari Ummu Darda', dari Abu Darda' RA, dia berkata, "Siapa yg berdoa menjelang pagi & sore (petang) hari, "Cukuplah Allah SWT sebagai Pelindungku. Zat yg tidak ada Tuhan selainNya. Kepada Nya aku bertawakal. Dialah Zat Pemilik 'Arsy yg agung." (Quran, surah at-Taubah, ayat 129), sebanyak tujuh (7) kali, kecuali Allah SWT akan mencukupkan apa yg menjadi harapannya." (Hadith riwayat Ibn Asakir, Tafsir Ibnu Kathir. "Allah SWT is sufficient for me. None has the right to be worshipped but He, in Him I put my trust & He is the Lord of the Mighty Throne." Glorious Quran 9: 129.
Dari Abu Hurairah RA dari Rasulullah SAW, bersabda, "Mintalah perlindungan kpd Allah SWT dari cubaan yg menyulitkan, kesengsaraan yg menderitakan, takdir yg buruk, & cacian musuh." Hadith riwayat Al-Bukhari.
Ibn Abbas RA meriwayatkan sabda Rasulullah SAW, "Siapa saja yg engkau dapatkan mengerjakan perbuatan homoseksual/gay maka bunuhlah kedua pelakunya." (Abu Dawud, Ibn Majah, At-Tirmidzi & Darru Quthni). Jabir RA menuturkan sabda Rasulullah SAW, "Sesungguhnya yg paling aku takuti (menimpa) umatku adalah perbuatan kaum Luth." (Hadith riwayat Ibnu Majah). Hadith Ibnu Abbas RA: "Allah SWT melaknat siapa saja yg melakukan perbuatan kaum Luth (beliau mengulanginya sebanyak tiga (3) kali)." (Hadith riwayat Nasa'i). Sila rujuk Quran, surah al-Ankabut: ayat 28~30.
Firman Allah SWT dalam surah Ali-Imran ayat 110 yang bermaksud: Kamu adalah umat yang terbaik yang dilahirkan untuk manusia, menyuruh kepada yang makruf, dan mencegah dari yang mungkar, dan beriman kepada Allah. Sekiranya ahli kitab beriman, tentulah itu lebih baik bagi mereka, di antara mereka ada yang beriman, dan kebanyakan mereka adalah orang-orang yang fasik. "You are the best of peoples ever raised for mankind; you enjoined al-ma'ruf (right conduct) & forbid al-munkar (indecency), & you believe in Allah SWT. And had the people of the Scriptures (Jews & Christians) believed, it would have been better for them; among them are some who have Faith, but most of them are al-fasiqun (disobedient to Allah SWT & rebellious against Allah's Command)." Glorious Quran 3: 110. Rasulullah SAW bersabda yang maksudnya: Barang siapa melihat suatu kemungkaran maka hendaklah ia cegah dengan tangannya (kekuasaan) jika tidak mampu cegahlah dengan lisannya (nasihat…
Amanat Haji Hadi Awang disampaikan oleh Datuk Seri Haji Abdul Hadi Awang di Kampung Benggol, Peradong, Kuala Terengganu pada 7 April, 1981. “Saudara-saudara sekelian percayalah, Kita menentang UMNO, bukan kerana nama dia UMNO. Kita menentang Barisan Nasional bukan kerana dia lama memerintah kerajaan. Kita menentang dia ialah kerana dia mengekalkan perlembagaan penjajah, mengekalkan undang-undang kafir, mengekalkan peraturan jahiliyah. Oleh kerana itulah kita menentang mereka. Oleh kerana itulah kita menghadapi mereka. Oleh itulah kita cuba berlawan dengan mereka. Percayalah saudara-saudara sekelian, Perjuangan kita adalah jihad, ucapan kita adalah jihad, derma kita adalah jihad. Bergantunglah kita kepada Allah dengan (menghadapi) puak-puak ini kerana kalau kita mati melawan puak-puak ini, mati kita adalah syahid. Mati kita adalah Islam. Kita tidak perlu masuk Buddha, Kita tidak perlu masuk Hindu, Kita tidak perlu masuk Kristian, Tapi kita menjadi kafir dengan mengamalkan ‘politik…

The ego or self (nafs) always looks at the world & the spirit (ruh) always looks at the next life (akhirat). Spiritual knowledge always looks at Allah, Almighty & Exalted. He whose self (ego) defeats him is from those who are destroyed. He whose spirit is victorious over his "self", is of the pious & he whose spiritual knowledge enlightens his spirit is of the God-conscious. - Abu Yazid al-Bistami.
To be a naval architect/offshore engineer, you must be creative, with strong engineering design skills. You also need a logical approach to solving problems. You must have good team work skills; you will need to communicate well with other engineering professionals. You also need good communication skills to give clear professional advice and technical support to customers of the maritime industry. As project leaders, naval architects must have strong leadership and managerial skills. Project work demands good organisation skills. You must be able to co-ordinate resources, and work within a budget and agreed time scale. You must be able to supervise employees; you need the ability to encourage and motivate others. Naval architects may manage repair teams that deal with emergency repairs as well as routine checks, so architects need to be resourceful, able to improvise and make decisions. You will need to develop knowledge of legal rules and regulations, especially those concerning…
Imam Al-Ghazali committed himself seriously to Sufism in his later life, during which time he produced a series of unique works on Sufism and ethics including (1) Mizan al-‘amal (The Balance of Action), composed just before retirement, (2) Ihya’ ‘ulum al-din, his magnum opus written after retirement, (3) Kitab al-arba‘in fi usul al-din (The Forty Chapters on the Principles of Religion), (4) Kimiya’-yi sa‘adat (The Alchemy of Happiness), (5) Mishkat al-anwar (The Niche of the Lights) and others. The ultimate goal of humankind according to Islam is salvation in paradise, which is depicted in the Glorious Qur’an and Traditions (Hadiths) as various sensuous pleasures and joy at the vision of God. The greatest joy for al-Ghazali, however, is the seeing of Allah SWT in the intellectual or spiritual sense of the beatific vision. In comparison with this, sensuous pleasures are nothing. However, they remain necessary for the masses who cannot reach such a vision.
Wabisa ibn Ma'bad, may Allah be pleased with him, mentioned that he went to the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, who said: "Have you come to ask me about piety (birr)?" "Yes," Wabisa replied. The Prophet Muhammad SAW said, "Consult your heart. Piety is that with which the soul is at rest and the heart is at rest. Wrong action is what is hatched up in yourself, and echoes to and fro in your breast, even if people give a decision in your favour and ask for your opinion." One version has, "even if the one asked gives a decision in your favour." It is an excellent hadith. Ahmad ibn Hanbal, ad-Darimi and others have related it. The version of an-Nawwas ibn Sam'an is in the Sahih Collection of Muslim. He said, "Piety consists of good character and wrong action is that which you hatch up in yourself and which you hate to show to people."
O The First without a beginning, and O The Everlasting in all eternity, and O The Possessor of Power and Firm Authority, and O The One Who is Merciful to the poor, and O The Most Merciful of those who show mercy, and O Peace, bestow peace on us and all Muslims, for the sake of the dignified status of the Master of all the (Prophetic) Messengers, and bestow blessings and peace on Sayyidinā Muhammad and on his Family and Companions and all Praise is for Allāh, Lord of the worlds. O Allāh, we ask of You for Your Good Pleasure and Paradise, and we seek Your Protection from Your displeasure and from hell-fire. - Ratib al-Haddad.
Rasulullah SAW bersabda menjelaskan bahawa: ”Sebaik-baik percakapan ialah Kitab Allah, sebaik-baik agama ialah Nabi Ibrahim AS, sebaik-baik contoh adalah Rasulullah SAW, sebaik-baik ucapan ialah memuji Allah SWT, sebaik-baik bacaan ialah bacaan Al-Quran, seburuk-buruk agama adalah bidaah, sebaik-baik jalan ialah jalan Rasulullah SAW, sebaik-baik mati ialah mati syahid, seburuk-buruk buta ialah sesat setelah mendapat petunjuk, sebaik-baik tindakan ialah melakukan kebajikan, sebaik-baik petunjuk ialah yang disertakan dengan amalan, sedikit yang mendatangkan kepuasan lebih baik daripada banyak tetapi menimbulkan riak, seburuk-buruk taubat ialah taubat ketika hampir mati dan seburuk-buruk penyesalan ialah penyesalan pada Hari Kebangkitan.”
Naval Architects employed by Classification Societies as Ship Surveyors are engaged world-wide in evaluating the safety of ships and marine structures using the Society's Rules and those of intergovernmental organisations such as the International Maritime Organisation. Plans of ships to be built and eventually classed with the Society are scrutinised, and aspects of design such as strength, stability, and lifesaving approved before construction. During construction, Ship Surveyors carry out inspections to ensure that the quality of the workmanship and materials used is in accordance with the Rules and Regulations. Once the vessel or structure is in service, Ship Surveyors will continue to carry out inspections to ensure that any serious defects arising from operation are made good and that a safe and seaworthy structure is maintained. Government Departments employ Naval Architects who deal mainly with the framing of safety regulations and the surveying of ships and equipment fro…
JANGANLAH KERANA KELAMBATAN MASA PEMBERIAN TUHAN KEPADA KAMU, PADAHAL KAMU TELAH BERSUNGGUH-SUNGGUH BERDOA, MEMBUAT KAMU BERPUTUS ASA, SEBAB ALLAH MENJAMIN UNTUK MENERIMA SEMUA DOA, MENURUT APA YANG DIPILIH-NYA UNTUK KAMU, TIDAK MENURUT KEHENDAK KAMU, DAN PADA WAKTU YANG DITENTUKAN-NYA, TIDAK PADA WAKTU YANG KAMU TENTUKAN. Apabila kita berkehendak mendapatkan sesuatu sama ada duniawi mahupun ukhrawi maka kita akan berusaha bersungguh-sungguh untuk mendapatkannya. Jika usaha kita tidak mampu memperolehinya kita akan meminta pertolongan daripada orang yang mempunyai kuasa. Jika mereka juga tidak mampu membantu kita untuk mencapai hajat kita maka kita akan memohon pertolongan daripada Allah s.w.t, menadah tangan ke langit sambil air mata bercucuran dan suara yang merayu-rayu menyatakan hajat kepada-Nya. Selagi hajat kita belum tercapai selagi itulah kita bermohon dengan sepenuh hati. Tidak ada kesukaran bagi Allah s.w.t untuk memenuhi hajat kita. Sekiranya Dia mengurniakan kepada ki…
Kepantasan hakiki yang mampu melipat jarak dunia bukanlah kepantasan tubuh badan bergerak dalam dunia. Ia adalah perjalanan kerohanian ketika bertemu sesuatu dan menghadapi sebarang kejadian. Ke manakah kerohaniannya pergi ketika itu? Orang yang memperturutkan pandangan nafsunya, tempat jatuhnya adalah zahirnya alam dan sebab musabab. Tetapi, orang yang melihat dengan pandangan hatinya akan melihat kepada batinnya alam. Dia melihat ketuhanan dalam segala sesuatu. Sebaik sahaja dia berhadapan dengan sesuatu perkara serta-merta pandangan hatinya tertuju kepada Allah s.w.t yang menerbitkan segala perkara, hinggakan tidak sempat memerhatikan benda-benda alam dan hukum sebab musabab. Pandangan hati yang segera memerhatikan Allah s.w.t dalam segala perkara itu dinamakan kepantasan hakiki. Tipu daya dunia tidak sempat menyambar perhatian hatinya. Ego dirinya juga tidak sempat bertunas. Perhatiannya tertuju kepada keabadian, tidak kepada dunia dan dirinya yang bersifat sementara. Kurniaan A…
"Wahai Tuhan kami! Kepada Engkaulah sahaja kami berserah diri, dan kepada Engkaulah kami rujuk bertaubat, serta kepada Engkaulah jua tempat kembali! "Wahai Tuhan kami! Janganlah Engkau jadikan pendirian dan keyakinan kami terpesong kerana penindasan orang-orang kafir, dan ampunkanlah dosa kami wahai Tuhan kami; sesungguhnya Engkaulah sahaja Yang Maha Kuasa, lagi Maha Bijaksana". (Quran, surah Al-Mumtahanah 60:4~5).
"Dan Kami cabut segala macam dendam yang berada di dalam dada mereka; mengalir di bawah mereka sungai-sungai dan mereka berkata: “Segala puji bagi Allah yang telah menunjuki kami kepada (surga) ini. Dan kami sekali-kali tidak tidak akan mendapat petunjuk kalau Allah tidak memberi kami petunjuk. Sesungguhnya telah datang rasul-rasul Rabb kami, membawa kebenaran”. Dan diserukan kepada mereka: “Itulah surga yang telah diwariskan kepadamu, disebabkan apa yang dahulu kamu kerjakan”. (Quran surah al-A'raf 7:43).

The ability to work in a team; 6. Commercial awareness; 7. Strong IT & CAD/CAM skills; 8. Leadership qualities. Competition fluctuates according to the current state of the maritime industry.
Ibn 'Abbas said, "While Jibril, peace be upon him, was sitting with the Prophet Muhammad SAW, he heard a sound above him and raised his head. He said, 'This is a door of heaven which has been opened today and which has never been opened before today. An angel descended from it.' He said, 'This is an angel who has descended to earth who has never descended before today.' He gave the greeting and said, 'Give the good news of two lights which you have been given and which no Prophet before you was given: the Fatiha of the Book (Glorious Quran) and the end of Surat al-Baqara (2). You will not recite a letter of them without being given it.'" [Muslim].
ANAK KUNCI SYURGA Hasan bin Arafah berkata bahawa telah berkata kepada kami Ismail bin Ayyasy dari Abdullah bin Abdurrahman bin Abu Hasan dari Syahr bin Husyab dari Muadz bin Jabal radiyallahu ‘ahu yang berkata bahawa Rasulullah shallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam bersabda, مفتاح الجنة شهادة أن لا إله إلا الله “Kunci syurga adalah kesaksian ‘Laa Illaaha Illa Allah’ (tidak ada Tuhan yang layak disembah melainkan Allah).” Hadist di atas diriwayatkan Imam Ahmad dalam Musnadnya dengan redaksi مفتاح الجنة شهادة أن لا إله إلا الله “Kunci syurga adalah kesaksian Laa Ilaaha Illa Allah (tidak ada Tuhan yang layak disembah melainkan Allah).” (Musnad Imam Ahmad 5/242, Syaikh Ahmad Syakir berkata: isnadnya dhaif) Bukhari di dalam Shahihnya berkata dari Wahab bin Munabbih bahawa dikatakan kepada, “Bukankah kunci syurga adalah pernyataan? Wahab bin Munabbih menjawab, “Benar tapi ingat bahawa setiap pintu pasti mempunyai gerigi. Jika anda diberi kunci yang bergerigi maka anda boleh membuka. Jika tida…
Daripada Abu Musa al-Asyaari ra, Rasulullah SAW berdoa: Ya Allah SWT, ampunilah kesalahanku, kebodohanku, dan perbuatanku yang berlebihan dalam urusanku, serta ampunilah kesalahanku yang Engkau lebih mengetahui daripadaku. Ya Allah SWT, ampunilah kesalahanku, kemalasanku, kesengajaanku, kebodohanku, gelak tawaku yang semua itu ada pada diriku. Ya Allah SWT, ampunilah aku atas dosa yang telah berlalu, dosa yang mendatang, dosa yang aku samarkan dan dosa yang aku perbuat dengan terang-terangan, Engkaulah yang mendahulukan dan Engkaulah yang mengakhirkan, serta Engkau Maha Berkuasa atas segala sesuatu. (riwayat Bukhari)
"And verily, for you (O Muhammad SAW) will be an endless reward. And verily, you (O Muhammad SAW) are on an exalted (standard) of character." Glorious Quran 68: 3~4.
Di dalam satu hadis dilaporkan bahawa baginda Rasulullah s.a.w ada bersabda: "Barang siapa yang di dapati padanya empat perkara,nescaya ia akan memperolehi segala kebaikan di dunia dan di akhirat. (1)Pertama,lidah yang senantiasa basah dengan berzikir. (2) Kedua,hati yang senantiasa sibuk dengan bersyukur. (3) Ketiga,anggota-anggota tubuh yang senantiasa menahan segala penderitaan. (4) Keempat,isteri yang tidak mengkhianati maruahnya dan harta benda suaminya." Mengkhianati maruah maknanya mengerjakan sesuatu kemaksiatan.Lidah yang basah maksudnya telah pun diterangkan oleh ulama-ulama sebagai membanyakkan.Ini adalah merupakan simpulan bahasa,menurut kebiasaan,apakala seseorang memuji atau menyebut nama seseorang yang lain dengan sebanyak-banyaknya,maka dikatakan bahawa lidah sifulan telah dibasahi dengan memuji sianu.
Nabi Muhammad SAW bersabda: "Iri hati (hasad & dengki) dapat merosak binasakan kebaikan2 & keikhlasan sebagaimana api dapat menghanguskan kayu-kayuan." Sabda Nabi Muhammad SAW: "Ada 3 macam barang yg dapat membawa kehancuran iaitu: (1) Pertama: keji, tahyul & bakhil, (2) Kedua: tidak dapat mengendalikan keinginan2 & hawa nafsu & (3) Ketiga: membanggakan & menyombongkan diri sendiri." - Rujukan: Imam al-Ghazali, "Bidayatu'l Hidayah".
Nabi Muhammad SAW bersabda: "Sesiapa yg merendah diri kpd Allah SWT, nanti Allah SWT mengangkatnya kpd kedudukan yg tinggi & mulia." Riwayat Abu Nu'aim RA.
Selepas mengetahui hikmat ayat ini, eloklah dihafalkan dan fahamkan maknanya sekali sebagai bekalan kita ketika menghadapi segala kesusahan dan kesengsaraan yang tidak kita jangkakan. Jazakallah Khairan. Maksudnya: "Dengan nama Allah Yang Maha Pemurah Lagi Maha Mengasihani. ...Dan sesiapa yang bertaqwa kepada Allah (dengan mengerjakan suruhanNya dan meninggalkan laranganNya), nescaya akan dijadikan baginya jalan keluar (dari segala perkara yang menyusahkannya).Serta memberinya rezeki dari jalan yang tidak terlintas hatinya. Dan (ingatlah), sesiapa berserah diri bulat-bulat kepada Allah, maka Allah cukupkan baginya (untuk menolong dan menyelamatkannya). Sesungguhnya Allah tetap melakukan segala perkara yang di kehendakiNya. Allah telahpun menentukan kadar dan masa bagi berlakunya tiap-tiap sesuatu." Quran surah at-Talaq (65), ayat 2~3. "...And whosoever fears Allah SWT & keeps his duty to Him, He will make a way for him to get out (from every difficulty). And He…
"They love them as they love Allah SWT. But those who believe, love Allah SWT more (than anything else)." Glorious Quran 2: 165. "Say (O Muhammad SAW to mankind): "If you really love Allah SWT, then follow me (i.e. accept Islam), Allah SWT will love you & forgive you your sins. And Allah SWT is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful." Glorious Quran 3: 31.
Great Lecturer: In an independent & anonymous survey done by students of UniKL MIMET that appeared in E-Citie showed one student who said that I'm a "great lecturer". That's a good booster for the ego. However, he/she didn't clarify the definition of great lecturer. It definitely make my day as Principal Specialist (Lecturer at Associate Professor level) at UniKL MIMET. However, as they said, there's always room(s) for improvement, perhaps as greatest lecturer or similar. Actually what's important is to gain Divine Pleasure in whatever you do. Great – countless, inordinate, prodigious, excessive, boundless, unlimited, pronounced, abundant, numerous, huge, immense, enormous, vast, large, big, grand, famous, illustrious, eminent, distinguished, celebrated, impressive, remarkable, talented, skillful, notable, noble, elevated, lofty, exalted, imposing, stately, impressive, heroic, splendid, majestic, wonderful, fantastic, magnificent, excellent, terrif…
It is related that 'Ali ibn Abi Talib RA said, "Bismillah is healing from every illness and protection against every disease. Ar-Rahman is a help for everyone who believes in Him. It is a name not used for anyone else. Ar-Rahim is for those who repent, believe and perform righteous actions." Some of them explained the meaning according to the letters. It is related that 'Uthman ibn 'Affan asked the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, about the interpretation of "In the Name of Allah, the All-Merciful, Most Merciful." He said, "The ba' is the trial (bala') of Allah, His relief, brilliance and radiance (baha'). The sin is the splendour (sana') of Allah. The mim is the kingdom (mulk) of Allah. As for Allah, there is no god but Him. The Rahman is kind to both the pious and impious of His creatures. The Rahim is kind only to the believers." It is reported that Ka'b al-Ahbar said, "The ba' is Hi…
No compulsion in religion revisited It is one of the established teachings of Islam that non-Muslims should not be compelled, threatened, intimidated let alone harmed in any way if he/she does not wish to accept Islam in particular and its laws in general. VERSE 256 of Chapter 2 (al-Baqarah) in the Quran states that “There shall be no compulsion in religion”. This verse establishes a very fundamental principle that nobody can be coerced to accept or embrace Islam. According to Abdullah Yusuf Ali, a modern Muslim Quranic commentator, compulsion is incompatible with religion. He reasons that religion depends upon faith and will, and these would be meaningless if induced by force; and that truth and error have been so clearly explained by Allah to the extent that there should be no doubt in the minds of persons of good will as to the fundamentals of belief. Another commentator, Muhammad Asad, says that the application of coercion in anything that pertains to faith or religion is categor…
Discourse (7th) from Futuh al-Ghaib by Shaykh Abdul Qadir al-Jilani On removing the cares of the heart [qalb] The Shaikh (may Allah be well pleased with him, and grant him contentment) said: Step out of your own self and keep your distance from it. Practice detachment from your possessiveness, and surrender everything to Allah. Become His doorman at the door of your heart, obeying His command by admitting those He instructs you to admit, and respecting His prohibition by shutting out those He instructs you to turn away, so that you do not let passion back into your heart once it has been evicted. Passion is expelled from the heart by resistance to it and refusal to follow its urges, whatever the circumstances, while compliance and acquiescence allow it to gain entry. So do not exert any will apart from His will, for anything else is your own desire, and that is the Vale of Folly, where death and destruction await you, and falling from His sight and becoming secluded from Him. Alway…
Naval architect's library can be varied and interesting. Some comments are inserted to add some colour to the list. The list is random but starts with more interesting topics first: 1. Translation of the Holy Quran, Abdullah Yusuf Ali - Perhaps one of the most comprehensive translation of the Quran to date. I had also read other translations by Muhammad Marmaduke Pickthall and some Malay translations. Tafsir by Syed Qutb, "Fi Zilal Quran" and Prof Dr Hamka, "Tafsir Al-Azhar" are very knowledgeable. 2. Translation of Sahih Muslim (hadith). 3. Bucaille, "The Quran, the Bible & Science". 4. Hassen Meeah, "The Light" - On the 99 Holy & Beautiful names of Allah SWT. 5. M.

Allah SWT has said in the Glorious Quran: Or (the unbelievers’ state) is like the darkness in a deep sea. It is covered by waves, above which are waves, above which are clouds. Darknesses, one above another. If a man stretches out his hand, he cannot see it.... (Glorious Quran, 24:40). This verse mentions the darkness found in deep seas and oceans, where if a man stretches out his hand, he cannot see it. The darkness in deep seas and oceans is found around a depth of 200 meters and below. At this depth, there is almost no light (see figure 15). Below a depth of 1000 meters there is no light at all.1 Human beings are not able to dive more than forty meters without the aid of submarines or special equipment. Human beings cannot survive unaided in the deep dark part of the oceans, such as at a depth of 200 meters.

Abu Dharr RA reported: I said: "Messenger of Allah (SAW): which mosque was setup first (on the earth?" He SAW said: "Al-Masjid al-Haram (the Sacred)." I (again) said: "Then which next?" He SAW said: "It was the Masjid Aqsa." I (again) said: "How long the space of time (between their setting up)? He (the Holy Prophet Muhammad SAW) said: "It was 40 years. And whenever the time for prayer, pray there, for that is a mosque," & in the hadith transmitted by Abu Kamil (the words are): "Whenever tine comes for prayer (solat), pray, for that is a mosque (for you)." - Sahih Muslim (No. 1056).

Allah Taala menawarkan kemenangan di dalam firman-Nya dalam Quran, Surah al-Saff ayat 10-12: "Wahai orang-orang yang beriman! Mahukah Aku tunjukkan sesuatu perniagaan yang boleh menyelamatkan kamu daripada azab seksa yang tidak terperi sakitnya?" "Iaitu, kamu beriman kepada Allah dan Rasul-Nya serta kamu berjuang membela dan menegakkan agama Allah dengan harta benda dan diri kamu; yang demikian itulah yang lebih baik bagi kamu, jika kamu mengetahui." "(Dengan itu) Allah akan mengampunkan dosa-dosa kamu dan memasukkan kamu ke dalam taman-taman (syurga) yang mengalir di bawahnya beberapa sungai, serta ditempatkan kamu di tempat-tempat tinggal yang sama ada dalam syurga 'Adn. Itulah kemenangan yang besar." Berdasarkan ayat di atas, kemenangan di akhirat itu meliputi empat perkara: 1. Mendapat jaminan keselamatan dari azab yang pedih di akhirat. 2. Mendapat keampunan dari Allah Taala di atas segala dosa yang telah dilakukan. 3. Dimasukkah ke dalam syurg…
"Endure thou patiently (O Muhammad SAW). Thine endurance is only by (the help of) Allah SWT. Grieve not for them, & be not in distress because of that which they devise. Lo! Allah SWT is with those who keep their duty unto Him & those who are doers of good." Glorious Quran 16: 127~128.
Baginda Rasulullah SAW bersabda: إِذَا هَمَّ أَحَدُكُمْ بِالأَمْرِ فَلْيَرْكَعْ رَكْعَتَيْنِ مِنْ غَيْرِ الْفَرِيضَةِ ثُمَّ لِيَقُلْ: Maksudnya: Jika salah seorang di antara kalian berkeinginan keras melakukan sesuatu, hendaklah dia mengerjakan solat dua rakaat yang bukan solat fardu kemudian membaca doa: اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَسْتَخِيرُكَ بِعِلْمِكَ وَأَسْتَقْدِرُكَ بِقُدْرَتِكَ وَأَسْأَلُكَ مِنْ فَضْلِكَ الْعَظِيمِ فَإِنَّكَ تَقْدِرُ وَلاَ أَقْدِرُ وَتَعْلَمُ وَلاَ أَعْلَمُ وَأَنْتَ عَلاَّمُ الْغُيُوبِ اللَّهُمَّ إِنْ كُنْتَ تَعْلَمُ أَنَّ هَذَا الأَمْرَ خَيْرٌ لِي فِي دِينِي وَمَعَاشِي وَعَاقِبَةِ أَمْرِي أَوْ قَالَ: عَاجِلِ أَمْرِي وَآجِلِهِ فَاقْدُرْهُ لِي وَيَسِّرْهُ لِي ثُمَّ بَارِكْ لِي فِيهِ وَإِنْ كُنْتَ تَعْلَمُ أَنَّ هَذَا الأَمْرَ شَرٌّ لِي فِي دِينِي وَمَعَاشِي وَعَاقِبَةِ أَمْرِي أَوْ قَالَ: فِي عَاجِلِ أَمْرِي وَآجِلِهِ فَاصْرِفْهُ عَنِّي وَاصْرِفْنِي عَنْهُ وَاقْدُرْ لِي الْخَيْرَ حَيْثُ كَانَ ثُمَّ أَرْضِنِي. Maksudnya: Ya Allah, sesungguhnya aku memohon petunjuk ke…

Diriwayatkan dari Abu Hurairah Radhiyallahu Anhu bahwa Rasulullah Shallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam bersabda, “Andaikata umat manusia mengetahui pahala di balik adzan dan berdiri pada shaf pertama kemudian mereka tidak mendapatkan bagian kecuali harus mengadakan undian terlebih dahulu niscaya mereka membuat undian itu. Andaikata mereka mengetahui pahala bergegas menuju masjid untuk melakukan shalat, niscaya mereka akan berlomba-lomba melakukannya. Andaikata mereka mengetahui pahala shalat isya dan subuh secara berjamaah, niscaya mereka datang meskipun dengan merangkak.” (Hadith Riwayat Al-Bukhari dan Muslim)
Hizib Bahr Hizb Bahr Imam Abu Hassan Al-Syadzili Tentang Al-Imam Abu Hassan Al-Syadzili, pengasas Tariqat Syadziliah yang hidup sekitar 800 tahun lalu di Maghribi. Sebagai peringatan, bahagian Arab itu ada tambahan “Innallahu wamala ikatu yusolluna alannabi…” sedangkan Hizb Bahr sebenarnya berakhir dengan 3 kali bacaan “La haulawala…” Nota tambahan: Adapun perkataan samudera di dalam terjemahan Hizib ini bukan sekadar bermaksud lautan yang mengandungi air malah bermaksud “lautan” alam-alam… Iaitu setiap alam-alam ciptaan Tuhan setiap satunya boleh diibaratkan sebagai sebuah lautan di mana terdapat makhluk-makhluk tertentu bermain-main di dalamnya. بِسْمِ اللهِ الَّرحْمَنِ الرَّحْيْمِ. اَللَّهُمَّ يَاالله يَاعَلِيُّ يَاعَظِيْمُ يَاحَلِيْمُ يَاعَلِيْمُ. اَنْتَ رَبِّيْ وَعِلْمُكَ حَسْبِيْ فَنِعْمَ الرَّبُّ رَبِّيْ وَنِعْمَ اْلحَسْبُ حَسْبِيْ تَنْصُرُ مَنْ تَشَاءُ وَاَنْتَ اْلعَزِيْزُ الرَّحِيْمُ. نَسْاَلُكَ الْعِصْمَةَ فِى الْحَرَكَاتِ وَالسَّكَنَاتِ وَالْكَلِمَاتِ وَالْاِرَادَاتِ …
Syafaat untuk mendapat kerehatan daripada huru-hara pada Hari Perhimpunan (Mahsyar) dan mempercepatkan perbicaraan mahkamah keadilan Tuhan: Ini adalah suatu kedudukan terpuji yang dijanjikan kepada Nabi Muhammad SAW. Allah SWT berfirman: Dan bangunlah pada sebahagian dari waktu malam serta kerjakanlah solat Tahajud padanya, sebagai solat tambahan bagimu; semoga Tuhanmu membangkit dan menempatkan kamu pada Hari Akhirat di tempat yang terpuji. (Quran, al-Isra': 79).
The Gumusut-Kakap project will produce through 19 subsea wells, tied back to a Floating Production System (FPS). The Gumusut-Kakap FPS will weigh more than 40,000t and have a processing capacity of 150,000 barrels of oil each day. It will be installed in about 1,000m of water. Crude produced at the fields will be exported through a pipeline to a new oil and gas processing facility being built at Kimanis, Sabah. Processed gas from the Kimanis plant will be transported to Petronas LNG Complex in Bintulu, Sarawak. Gas produced at the field will be re-injected into the reservoir to improve oil recovery. Development drilling for the project commenced in January 2008. The project was originally scheduled to come on-stream in 2010 but was delayed due to design issues with the Gumusut-Kakap production facility and laying the new subsea export pipeline.
Dengan nama Allah yg Maha Pemurah lagi Maha Penyayang. Katakanlah: “Aku berlindung kpd Tuhan yg Menguasai falaq (subuh). Dari kejahatan makhluknya, & dari malam apabila telah gelap gelita, & dari kejahatan wanita2 tukang sihir yg menghembus pd ikatan2 (simpulan), & dari kejahatan orang yg dengki apabila dia melakukan dengkinya.” Quran, surah Al-falaq 113: 1~5. In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful. Say: “I seek refuge with the Lord of al-Falaq (daybreak). From the evil of what He has created. And from the evil of the Ghasiq when Waqab (darkening (night) as it comes with its darkness), and from the evil of the blowers in knots, and from the evil of the envier when he envies.” Glorious Quran 113: 1~5.

Doa: Ya Allah SWT, ya Tuhan ku, Engkau kurniakan kpd kami dgn ilmu pengetahuan yg berguna & amalan yg soleh, Engkau peliharalah kami drpd perbuatan2 jahat (hasad dengki dll) samada drpd manusia, jin, binatang yg buas & lain2nya. Berilah kami di dunia ini kebaikan, di akhirat juga kebaikan, peliharalah kami dari azab api neraka. Selawat & salam ke atas Nabi Muhammad SAW & keluarganya, sahabat2nya. Maha Suci Engkau ya Allah SWT drpd segala sifat kekurangan. Salam sejahtera ke atas sekelian Rasul2 & segala pujian itu tertentu kpd Allah SWT yg memiliki sekelian alam. (Dipetik dari Doa 'Arafah).
As the Moroccan hadith scholar ‘Abdullah al-Talidi wrote of the Dala’il al-Khayrat: “Millions of Muslims from East to West tried it and found its good, its baraka, and its benefit for centuries and over generations, and witnessed its unbelievable spiritual blessings and light. Muslims avidly recited it, alone and in groups, in homes and mosques, utterly spending themselves in the Blessings on the Most Beloved and praising him—until Wahhabi ideas came to spread among them, suborning them and creating confused fears based on the opinions of Ibn Taymiya and the reviver of his path Muhammad ibn ‘Abd al-Wahhab of Najd. After this, Muslims slackened from reciting the Dala’il al-Khayrat, falling away from the Blessings upon the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) in particular, and from the remembrance of Allah in general” (al-Mutrib fi awliya’ al-Maghrib, 143–44).
Let those fight in the way of Allah SWT who sell the life of this world for the other. Whoso fighteth in the way of Allah SWT, be he slain or be he victorious, on him We shall bestow a vast reward. How should ye not fight for the cause of Allah SWT and of the feeble among men and of the women and the children who are crying: Our Lord! Bring us forth from out this town of which the people are oppressors! Oh, give us from thy presence some protecting friend! Oh, give us from Thy presence some defender! Those who believe do battle for the cause of Allah SWT; and those who disbelieve do battle for the cause of idols. So fight the minions of the devil. Lo! the devil's strategy is ever weak. Hast thou not seen those unto whom it was said: Withhold your hands, establish worship and pay the poor due, but when fighting was prescribed for them behold! a party of them fear mankind even as their fear of Allah SWT or with greater fear, and say: Our Lord! Why hast Thou ordained fighting for…
Doa Kejayaan / Terang Hati / Temuduga Pekerjaan: "Wahai Tuhan kami, berikanlah rahmat kepada kami dari sisiMu dan sempurnakanlah bagi kami petunjuk yang lurus dalam urusan kami (ini)." Quran, surah Al-Kahfi 18: 10. "Our Lord! Bestow on us mercy from Yourself, & facilitate for us our affair in the right way!" ~ Glorious Quran 18: 10.
Dengan nama Allah SWT yang Pemurah dan Penyayang Segala Puji bagi Allah SWT Tuhan Seru Sekelian alam. Ya Allah, kurniakanlah rahmat dan sejahtera atas penghulu kami Nabi Muhammad SAW serta keluarga dan sahabatnya.

Dan Allah, limpahkanlah rahmat serta sejahtarakanlah junjungan kami Nabi Muhammad SAW, keluarga serta sahabat-sahabat Baginda.
As for those who strive hard for Us (in Our cause), We will surely guide them to Our paths. And verily, Allah SWT is with the doers of good. - Glorious Quran 20: 69. "Those who act upon what they know, Allah SWT will guide them to that which they do not know.'' Ahmad bin Abu Al-Hawari said, "I told this to Abu Sulayman Ad-Darani, and he liked it and said: `No one who is inspired to do something good should do it until he hears a report concerning that; if he hears a report then he should go ahead and do it, and praise Allah SWT because it was in accordance with what he himself felt.''' - Tafsir Ibn Kathir.
The Prophet Muhammad SAW said, "To give one's wife the money she requires is more important than to give alms." Once, when Ibn Mubarak was engaged in a campaign against the infidels, one of his companions asked him, "Is any work more meritorious than religious war?" "Yes," he replied: "to feed and clothe one's wife and children properly." The celebrated saint Bishr Hafi said, "It is better that a man should work for wife and children than merely for himself." In the Traditions it has been recorded that some sins can only be atoned for by enduring trouble for the sake of one's family. Concerning a certain saint it is related that his wife died and he would not marry again, though people urged him, saying it was easier to concentrate his thoughts in solitude. One night he saw in a dream the door of heaven opened and numbers of angels descending. They came near and looked upon him, and one said, "Is this that selfish wr…
"While he was in the highest part of the horizon." Quran 53: 7 meaning, Jibril rose to the highest part of the horizon, according to `Ikrimah and several others; `Ikrimah said, "The highest horizon where the morning comes from.'' Mujahid said, "It is (the place of) sunrise.'' Qatadah said, "That from which the day comes.'' Ibn Zayd and several others said similarly. Imam Ahmad recorded that Abdullah bin Mas`ud said, "The Messenger of Allah saw Jibril in his original shape having six hundred (600) wings, each wing filling the side of the horizon, with a colorful array, and pearls and rubies falling from each wing as much as only Allah knows.'' Only Imam Ahmad collected this Hadith. Imam Ahmad recorded that `Abdullah bin `Abbas said, "The Prophet asked Jibril to appear himself to him in his original shape and Jibril said to him, `Invoke your Lord.' The Prophet invoked his Lord the Exalted and Most Honored, and a gr…
Millionaires and the lessons that can be learned from them: 1 Set your sights on where you’re going. Have a vision. Think big. And remember that everyone has to start at the beginning. Even Warren Buffet had to invest $25 before he could make $25 billion. Set lofty goals, and then begin taking small steps to reach them. 2 Educate yourself. Read books and magazines. If you don’t know how to do something, research the answer. I’m amazed how much of my financial success is attributable to simply reading personal finance books. Many of them say the same things. Once you’ve read enough of them, the advice begins to be burned on your brain. Remember: knowledge is power. 3 Passion pays off. Love what you do. When you’re passionate about your work, you care about the consequences. “According to research by Thomas J. Stanley, author of The Millionaire Mind, over 80 percent of millionaires say they never would have been successful if their vocation wasn’t something they cared about.” 4 Grow yo…
Allah SWT is sufficient for me, none has the right to be worshipped except Him, upon Him I rely & He is the Lord of the Exalted Throne (Al-Arshil Azim).
Di antara ibadah yang boleh mendamaikan hati ialah zikrullah. Sehubungan dengan ini Allah berfirman: “Ketahuilah, dengan berzikir kepada Allah hati akan tenang.” (Quran, Ar-Ra’d 13:28) Pada suatu ketika, seorang lelaki telah mendatangi sahabat Abdullah ibn Masud r.a. dan berkata: “Wahai Ibn Masud, nasihatilah aku dengan sesuatu yang dapat meredakan kegelisahanku. Buat masa ini, jiwaku tidak tenteram, fikiranku kusut kemusut, tidurku tidak nyenyak dan seleraku tiada.” Abdullah ibn Masud r.a. telah menjawab: “Bawalah hatimu mengunjungi tiga tempat, pertama, ke tempat orang sedang membaca Al-Quran tidak kira sama ada kamu ikut membacanya atau kamu sekadar mendengar pembacaan orang lain. Kedua, kamu menghadiri majlis pengajian yang mengingatkan kamu kepada Allah dan ketiga, kamu mencari satu waktu yang sunyi, contohnya di waktu malam, dan ketika itu kamu bangun melaksanakan ibadah kepada Allah serta memohon kepada-Nya agar diberikan ketenangan dan kedamaian hati kepadamu. Jika selepas m…
Al-Wahhab, the Bestower, The Donor,The Most Liberal Bestower, The Great Giver, The Giver of Gifts The Bestower. He who constantly bestows blessings of every kind. The Giver Of All Things, The One who is Generous in giving plenty without any return. YA WAHHAB: O Bestower! If you repeat this seven times after making a supplication, your plea will be accepted. If one has a particular wish, or is held captive by an enemy, or finds it hard to make ends meet, one should invoke this Name one hundred times after midnight on three or seven nights (following ablution and a ritual prayer of two cycles). Allah will then grant whatever one needs. A poverty-stricken person should say this Ism constantly: or write it and keep it on him (as a taweez) or say it 40 times in the last sajdah of salat-Duha:... Insha-Allah he will be freed from poverty in an unexpected and amazing manner. For a particular need to be fulfilled, observe sajdah thrice in the courtyard of the house or majid and then lift the…
Allah SWT says in the Glorious Quran, Surah al-’Asr: “By the ‘Asr, Indeed all of mankind is in a state of loss, Except those who have iman (belief), Conduct righteous actions, Call each other to the Truth, And call each other to having patience.”
Imam Al-Ghazali menyatakan, tujuan untuk memperbaiki akhlak adalah untuk membersihkan kalbu (jiwa) daripada kotoran-kotoran hawa nafsu menjadikan amanah hingga ia jernih bagaikan cermin yang dapat menerima cahaya Tuhan. Kalau seseorang itu tidak mengetahui jiwanya sendiri yang paling dekat pada dirinya, apa gunanya dia menuntut berbagai-bagai ilmu pengetahuan itu. Kebahagiaan yang dicari banyak terletak kepada jiwa seseorang. Jiwa orang yang beriman dan bertakwa akan mudah dan merasa nikmat kebahagiaan. Manakala jiwa yang kotor sukar untuk merasa nikmat kebahagiaan. (rujuk Quran, asy-Syams: 7-10) Begitulah dijelaskan, kebahagiaan yang dicari terletak kepada ketakwaan dan kesucian jiwa sebagai kunci kepada kebahagiaan. Sebagai contoh pada zaman dahulu, kaum Samud telah mendustakan rasulnya, kaum ini telah melampaui batas dan berlaku zalim. Akhirnya, Allah SWT telah membinasakan kaum ini kerana dosanya dengan timbusan tanah. Peringatan ini sewajarnya menjadi peringatan kepada kita sem…
Yang Maha Berkuasa. Allah SWT, berfirman: “Maka patutkah kamu merasa hairan terhadap keterangan-keterangan Al-Quran ini (sehingga kamu mengingkarinya)? Serta kamu tertawa (mengejek-ejeknya) dan kamu tidak mahu menangis (menyesali kesalahan kamu serta takutkan balasan buruk yang akan menimpa kamu)? Sedang kamu adalah orang-orang yang sombong angkuh, lagi yang melalaikan kewajipan? Oleh hal yang demikian, hendaklah kamu sujud kepada Allah (yang telah menurunkan Al-Quran itu) dan beribadatlah kamu kepada-Nya (dengan sepenuh-penuh tauhid).”(Quran, Surah An-Najm: ayat 59-62). Maka dalam nas al-Quran ini, Allah memerintahkan kita untuk menangis kerana takut kepada-Nya dan agar kita menjauhi perkara sia-sia serta menjauhi banyak ketawa. Hal itu tidak menghalang kita daripada tersenyum yang juga tergolong sebagai ubat (untuk mengubati kesedihan dan masalah). Sesungguhnya menangis,, khusyuk, dan doa adalah resipi yang bagus untuk mengubati ketegangan jiwa. Kita memohon kepada Allah agar menj…
“Hasbunallahu wa ni’mal wakil” Cukuplah Allah bagiku. “Bismillahitawakkal ‘alallah” Dengan nama Allah kepadaNya jualah aku bertawakkal. “Allahumma Yassir Wa la Tu’assir Ya Kareem” Ya Allah permudahkanlah, dan janganlah Kau sukarkan, Wahai Maha Mulia.
PRAISING THE HOLY PROPHET MUHAMMAD SAW Blessings and Salutations of Allah be upon him Muhammad SAW, leader of the two worlds and of Man and the jinn, Leader also of the Arabs and non Arabs and their kin. Our Prophet, Commander of right, prohibits evil's way, Yet no one's speech more gentle could be than his nay or yea. Beloved by Allah is he upon whose pleading we depend From terrors of the Day of Judgement, which on us descend. He summoned people unto Allah, they to him did adhere, And clung fast to the rope that none could ever rent or tear. In morals and features he, all prophets did exceed, None could approach his knowledge, or his bounty e'er precede. And thus from Allah's Apostle they acquired and did gain, A handful of the vast ocean or a sip of gen'rous rain. So other prophets in their rightful place before him stand, Regarding knowledge and the wisdom that they understand. He perfect is in traits concealed, and features bright and clear, And Man's Cr…
