Kegagalan adalah lumrah perniagaan. Jika anda hendak berjaya banyakkan kegagalan. Untuk perbanyakkan kegagalan anda perlu banyak mencuba. - Donald Trump.
40 NASIHAT SAYYIDINA ALI RA 1. Pendapat seorang tua adalah lebih baik daripada tenaga seorang muda. 2. Menyokong kesalahan adalah menindas kebenaran. 3.

Jagalah ibubapa kamu, nescaya anak2mu akan menjaga kamu. 6. Bakhil terhadap apa yang di tangan tanda tidak mempunyai kepercayaan terhadap Allah. 7.

The oldest existing, and continually operating educational institution in the world is the University of Karueein, founded in 859 AD in Fez, Morocco. The University of Bologna, Italy, was founded in 1088 and is the oldest one in Europe. - Guinness World Records.
Inspired by a suggestion by industrialist Andrew Carnegie, Napoleon Hill spent 20 years interviewing the most successful people of his day. He distilled their wisdom in the classic 1937 bestseller, Think and Grow Rich. Entrepreneur and author Greg S. Reid has followed Hill’s example, applying some of his lessons in Think and Grow Rich STICKABILITY: The Power of Perseverance. Citing examples set by today’s achievers, Reid offers these and other tips: ➻ Get along with other people. Success is not finite. Another person’s success does not compromise your potential, so take interest in others’ achievements. These same people will be more willing to help you along, as well. ➻ Don’t give up. Focus on the outcome rather than the struggle. You will reap the rewards when you have the courage and stickability to see your vision through. ➻ Stop procrastinating. Don’t allow self-doubt to stop you. The greatest achievers are those who seize opportunities when they present themselves. Have th…
Firman Allah SWT yang bermaksud "(Iaitu orang-orang yang jika Kami beri kedudukan di bumi, mereka melaksanakan solat, menunaikan zakat dan menyuruh berbuat yang makruf dan mencegah dari yang munkar; dan kepada Allahlah kembali segala urusan". (Quran Karim, al-Haj, 22:41).
MUHAMMAD, No. 1 The 100, a Ranking of the Most Influential Persons in History by Michael H. Hart My choice of Muhammad SAW to lead the list of the world's most influential persons may surprise some readers and may be questioned by others, but he was the only man in history who was supremely successful on both the religious and secular levels. Of humble origins, Muhammad founded and promulgated one of the world's great religions, and became an immensely effective political leader. Today, thirteen centuries after his death, his influence is still powerful and pervasive. The majority of the persons in this book had the advantage of being born and raised in centers of civilization, highly cultured or politically pivotal nations. Muhammad, however, was born in the year 570, in the city of Mecca, in southern Arabia, at that time a backward area of the world, far from the centers of trade, art, and learning. Orphaned at age six, he was reared in modest surroundings. Islamic tradi…
And subjugate to us everything, Oh! You in Whose Hand is the dominion over everything. [Kaaf-Ha-Ya-‘Ain-Saad](3x). Aid us, for You are the best of those who aid. And open for us, for You are the best of those who open. And forgive us, for You are the best of Forgivers. And have mercy upon us, for You are the best of those who Show Mercy. And provide for us, for You are the best of Providers. And guide and deliver us from the People of Oppression. And grant us a fair wind according to Your Knowledge and waft it upon us from the Treasures of Your Mercy. Carry us by the conveyance of Your Generosity with Peace in our lives in this world and in the world to come - “over all things You have power” (Glorious Quran 3:26). Oh, Allah SWT! Make easy for us our situations with rest for our hearts and our bodies; and peace and well-being in our spiritual and worldly lives and be to us our Companion in our journey and the Guardian of our family. Efface the faces of our enemy. Freeze them in th…
Allah SWT calls upon people to reflect on their creation in the following verse: Does not humanity recall that We created it when it was nothing? (The Glorious Quran, Surah Maryam, 67).
Pergaulan Nabi Muhammad SAW dengan penduduk Mekah tidak terputus. Pada waktu itu masyarakat sedang sibuk kerana bencana banjir besar yang turun dari gunung, pernah menimpa dan meretakkan dinding-dinding Ka'bah yang memang sudah rapuh. Sebelum itu pun pihak Quraisy memang sudah memikirkannya. Tempat yang tidak beratap itu menjadi sasaran pencuri mengambil barang-barang berharga di dalamnya. Hal ini sangat membimbangi Quraisy kerana sekiranya bangunannya diperkuat, pintunya ditinggikan dan diberi beratap, dewa Ka'bah yang suci itu akan menurunkan bencana kepada mereka. Sepanjang zaman Jahiliah keadaan mereka diliputi oleh pelbagai macam legenda yang mengancam barangsiapa yang berani mengadakan sesuatu perubahan. Dengan demikian perbuatan itu dianggap tidak umum. Tetapi setelah mengalami bencana banjir tindakan tersebut itu adalah suatu keharusan walaupun masih serba takut-takut dan ragu-ragu. Suatu peristiwa kebetulan telah terjadi, sebuah kapal milik seorang pedagang Rom berna…
Perbezaan mazhab menurut perspektif ahlul sunnah wal jamaah: MUQADDIMAH Ketika Rasulullah SAW dilantik menjadi Rasul akhir zaman, kerasulannya bersifat sejagat dan ‘alami. Baginda bukan sahaja berdepan dengan musyrikin Arab yang buta huruf, paling keras dan bebal, bahkan menghadapi seluruh manusia di muka bumi sepanjang zaman. Ada pun di luar bumi Arab pula, adanya kuasa-kuasa besar dunia yang bertembung, khususnya Rom dan Parsi, di samping China, India, Mesir, Habsyah dan lain-lain. Dalam masa yang sama, adanya pula golongan ahli kitab dan bukan ahli kitab berbagai-bagai agama. Al-Quran, bukan sahaja menjadi petunjuk yang benar mengenali Allah dan segala akidahnya, beribadat dan cara hidup diri dan bermasyarakat, hubungan manusia dengan Allah. Al-Quran juga memberi petunjuk menangani berbagai-bagai agama dan kuasa pemerintahan, dengan memaparkan sejarah terdahulu dan semasa. Pendekatan dakwah secara muwajahah silmiyyah diutamakan, perdamaian didahulukan dalam hubungan antara ban…

Allah SWT is full of kindness (Ra'ufun) to those that serve ('ibaad) Him. - The Glorious Quran 3: 30. Say: "If you do LOVE Allah SWT, follow me: Allah SWT will LOVE you & forgive you your sins; for Allah SWT is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful. The Glorious Quran 3: 31.
Firman Allah SWT bermaksud: Sesungguhnya orang-orang yang beriman itu adalah mereka yang jika disebut nama Allah gementarlah hati mereka, dan apabila dibacakan kepada mereka ayat-ayat Nya, bertambah lah iman mereka (kerananya) dan kepada Tuhan lah mereka bertawakkal, (iaitu) orang-orang yang mendirikan solat dan yang menafkahkan sebahagian daripada rezeki yang kami berikan kepada mereka. Itulah orang-orang yang beriman dengan sebenar-benarnya. (Quran Karim, al-Anfal: 2-4).
Tafsir Ibn Kathir: Glorious Quran, Surah Yusuf AS. ﴿وَقَالَ الْمَلِكُ ائْتُونِى بِهِ أَسْتَخْلِصْهُ لِنَفْسِى فَلَمَّا كَلَّمَهُ قَالَ إِنَّكَ الْيَوْمَ لَدَيْنَا مِكِينٌ أَمِينٌ - قَالَ اجْعَلْنِى عَلَى خَزَآئِنِ الاٌّرْضِ إِنِّى حَفِيظٌ عَلِيمٌ ﴾ (54. And the king said: "Bring him to me that I may attach him to my person.'' Then, when he spoke to him, he said: "Verily, this day, you are with us high in rank and fully trusted.'') (55. Yusuf AS said: "Set me over the storehouses of the land; I will indeed guard them with full knowledge.''
Firman Allah SWT yang bermaksud: Oleh itu, takutilah kamu akan (kemurkaan) Allah dan taatlah kepadaku. Dan berbaktilah kamu kepada Allah SWT yang telah menolong kamu dengan pemberian nikmat-nikmat-Nya yang kamu sedia mengetahuinya. Diberinya kamu binatang-binatang ternakan (yang biak) serta anak-pinak (yang ramai), Dan taman-taman (yang indah permai) serta mata air-mata air (yang mengalir). Sesungguhnya aku takut, (bahawa) kamu akan ditimpa azab seksa hari yang besar (huru-haranya). (Quran Karim, as-Syuara': 131-135).
Inna aqramaqum ‘indallah hi atqaqum – kemuliaan insan dilihat kepada ketaqwaannya. Quran Karim, Al Hujurat :13.
The Holy Prophet Muhammad SAW was once asked: 0 Prophet of God, which action is best? He said: Knowledge. He was then questioned: Which knowledge do you mean? He said: Knowledge about God. They said: We ask you about action but you speak of knowledge. The Prophet said: With your knowledge of God, a few actions will suffice and your ignorance about God will not suffice even though actions are numerous. He said: On the Day of Resurrection, God will raise up the worshippers and the learned men. He will say: 0 the congregation of the learned men, I have not imbued you with My knowledge but for My knowledge about you. I have not placed knowledge in you in order to punish you. Go, I have forgiven you. Sayings of the sages: Hazrat Ali RA said to Kamil: 0 Kamil, knowledge is better than wealth. Knowledge guards you but you are guarding wealth. Knowledge dispenses justice, while wealth seeks justice. Wealth decreases with expense while knowledge increase with expense. He said: A learned man is…
Al-Biruni, manusia dan yang ke hadapan: "Kalau hebat sekadar hebat, ayam dihutan pun jadi jaguh" Petikan kata di atas sama sekali disangkal oleh Abu Rayhan Al-Biruni, Abu al-Raihan Muhammad ibn Ahmad al-Biruni atau lebih dikenali dengan jolokan peribadi, Al-Biruni yang pada zaman kegemilangan Islam terdahulu, beliau tidak pula mengejar kehebatan ataupun kemewahan duniawi kerana cintanya yang tidak terhingga kepada ilmu. Meskipun namanya kian terpinggir dan tidak lagi disiulkan dalam kalangan intelektual masa kini, Al-Biruni tetap gah sebagai ilmuwan serba boleh dan bukanlah sekadar jaguhan yang ditelan modenisasi. Al-Biruni dan pendidikan: Menurut Tamimi, Azzam S dalam makalahnya 'A Democrat Within Islam', Ghannouchi yang memetik pandangan Malik Bennabi mengenai demokrasi, “It liberates man from servitude rendering him un-slaveable, and secondly, it prohibits him from enslaving others.” Bertitik-tolak dengan keadaan Al-Biruni yang berjaya mendemokrasikan dirinya ket…
In Al-Ghazali's eyes, education is not merely a process whereby the teacher imparts knowledge that the pupil may or may not absorb, after which teacher and pupil each go their separate ways. Rather, it is an ‘interaction' affecting and benefiting teacher and pupil equally, the former gaining merit for giving instruction and the latter cultivating himself through the acquisition of knowledge. Al-Ghazali attaches great importance to the climate in which teaching takes place, and to the kind of relations that are desirable; in doing so, he continues and reaffirms the Islamic traditions of education. For him, the teacher should be a model and an example, not merely a purveyor or medium of knowledge. His work is not limited to the teaching of a particular subject; rather, it should encompass all aspects of the personality and life of the pupil. The pupil, in turn, has a duty to consider the teacher as a father, to whom he owes obedience and respect. Among the principles governing …

Selawat serta salam buat junjungan mulia Nabi Muhammad SAW keluarga serta para sahabat dan pengikut yang istiqamah menuruti baginda hingga ke hari kiamat. Sahabat yang dirahmati Allah, Seorang ahli sufi yang terkenal Al-Imam Hassan al-Basri memberi kata-kata hikmatnya : “Barang siapa tidak ada adab bererti tidak ada ilmu.

Undertake some economic enterprise, even if you are wealthy. Try to establish a private business, regardless of how small it may be or how busy or scientifically oriented you are. - Imam Hasan al-Banna.
"Maha Suci Allah SWT, yang telah memperjalankan hamba-Nya pada suatu malam dari Al Masjidil Haram ke Al Masjidil Aqsha yang telah Kami berkahi sekelilingnya agar Kami perlihatkan kepadanya sebagian dari tanda-tanda (kebesaran) Kami. Sesungguhnya Dia adalah Maha Mendengar lagi Maha Mengetahui." (Quran Karim, Surah al-Israa, ayat 1).
Why European women are turning to Islam: PARIS Mary Fallot looks as unlike a terrorist suspect as one could possibly imagine: a petite and demure white Frenchwoman chatting with friends on a cell-phone, indistinguishable from any other young woman in the café where she sits sipping coffee. And that is exactly why European antiterrorist authorities have their eyes on thousands like her across the continent. Ms. Fallot is a recent convert to Islam. In the eyes of the police, that makes her potentially dangerous. The death of Muriel Degauque, a Belgian convert who blew herself up in a suicide attack on US troops in Iraq last month, has drawn fresh attention to the rising number of Islamic converts in Europe, most of them women. "The phenomenon is booming, and it worries us," the head of the French domestic intelligence agency, Pascal Mailhos, told the Paris-based newspaper Le Monde in a recent interview. "But we must absolutely avoid lumping everyone together." The di…
5 Ways To Evaluate Your Project: You'll be able to assess your achievements objectively and quickly. Tip #1: Share the agenda Prepare an agenda and share it with everyone before the meeting is due to take place. If possible, give the team a chance to comment on the topics up for discussion and to tell you about additional things they would like to talk about during the meeting. The purpose of having an agenda is to keep the meeting on track and to make sure that nothing important is forgotten. Sending out the agenda in advance helps as it prompts people to come to the meeting prepared to discuss the topics. They have time to gather together any facts or to prepare their updates. 1: Compare schedule performance Use the dashboards and reports produced by your project management software to compare what project tasks you actually did and how long they took against your original plans. Hopefully you'll see that your final project schedule isn't that much longer than your ori…
PROPHET MUHAMMAD, p.b.u.h. The Greatest liberator of "man, who is born free and everywhere he is in chains!" by Khalifa Abdul Hakim We gratefully acknowledge and thank the Institute of Islamic Culture for permission to reproduce this chapter (Ch. 15) from the book "Islamic Ideology" by Khalifa Abdul Hakim. Also reproduced here is an excerpt written by Thomas Carlyle about the Prophet Muhammad, p.b.u.h. from the Dictionary of Islam Whenever a modern thinker contemplates human well being, he arrives at a conclusion that what is required is liberty, fraternity and equality. Instinctively or logically he puts liberty as the first requisite. Man is neither a material object subject to the inexorable determinism of the laws of matter, nor is he a mere animal whose life is guided by unerring instincts working as instruments of biological self-preservation. Although there is determinism from matter to animal life, still one could detect gradual realization of more and…
