[For such is the state of the disbelievers], until, when death comes to one of them, he says, "My Lord, send me back (99)
That I might do righteousness in that which I left behind." No! It is only a word he is saying; and behind them is a barrier until the Day they are resurrected. (100)

To have people around you who always remind and ask for reminders in order for us to keep reminding one another, is a bless.

Ya Allah, may we be among those yang menggunakan kepakaran masing-masing untuk ummah.

"Umi, what are the things in this world that make you go 'Subhanallah'?"
"Look at the sun setting, can you feel it, honey?"
"Yes, umi. It feels.. nice.. Oh, and the waves too, umi."

Both go "Subhanallah."

"Those are some of it. But Umar, you know something that can make me go 'Subhanallah', 'Masha-Allah',  'La ila ha illallah', 'Astaghfirullah'; all at once?"
"No, Umi. Tell me!"
"It's you."

of Kacang Ipoh and Built Environment

Walks to the toilet nak pinkan jubah yang labuh sangat.

Dalam toilet, ada sorang makcik, Indian, baru lepas keluar toilet. Dia senyum. Tak sure lah senyum lega ke apa, eh abaikan. Agagag.
No lah, I'm sure itu satu lemparan senyuman ikhlas dari lubuk hati untuk memulakan bicara dengan seorang stranger.
Senyum balik.

Selesai pinkan jubah, sekarang pinkan tudung...moh le gera..k..

"Adik kerja sini?" Masa tu ada Chocolate and Pastry Fair dekat KAED Gallery...
"Eh tak, saya student lagi.." Stop.
"I jual kacang-kacang dekat sini.."
"Ohh. Dekat sini, dekat mana?"
"Luar sana.. Tepi-tepi sana.. Tapi sedihlah.. I datang dari Ipoh, tapi takde orang nak beli.."
Tak tahu nak respon apa. Kesian, seriously. "Ohh jauhnya datang dari Ipoh... Tepi-tepi? Orang tak perasan kot.."

krik krik krik. 



"Adik belajar sini, ambil apa?"
"Saya student kulliyyah ni je.." Senyum je, nak buat apa lagi.
"You study Islam ? Pengajian Islam?" Lupa, I said KULLIYYAH. -.-
"Tak.. Er.." Nak jawab student kulliyyah Architecture and Environmental Design, Applied Arts and Design panjang sangat, "Dalam bidang ni jugak, architecture.." In fact I'm planning to do Interior Archi, so yeah, I guess that will do.

Muka makcik tu terkejut. As expected. But then she smiled.
And I smiled back, minta diri, off we go to STABAZ yang jauh di hujung alam.

Itu satu cerita. Now keep that aside.

Plan lepas STABAZ nak gi Dr Zakir Naik's talk dekat PWTC... (btw, STABAZ jauh gila. Lalu AIKOL, senyaaaap sunyiii je. I thought budak Law bising2 belaka? Senyaaaaaap je ghupe kulliyyahnya. Gelapp. Gelita.. Hahah. hari tu semua gi STABAZ kot, bangunan AIKOL takde orang, mungkin)

Memang nak pergi sangat sangat ni. Daripada the previous one before this one lagi. Tapi masa tu semua busy. So macam, yg dekat PWTC ni jelah semua orang macam ada masa sikit.

Lupa nak inform dekat mak, ingat nak inform awal pagi lagi. masa on the way g LRT baru bagitau. Then mak ckp..
"Ok. Tak jadilah nak singgah UIA jap malam ni. Esok jelah.."
Now wait. Nooo. Tak boleh jadi. The whole family is coming, mesti patah balik. mesti..! Esoknya pulak kelas dari pukul 9-4, mesti patah balik. tak boleh tunggu esok! (tengah taknak mengaku rindu, oh well, you got me :P) Turun sampai LRT, naik teksi patah balik sorang-sorang. Yang lain gerak g PWTC.

And so I didnt go to the talk.

I keep telling myself, if it is meant to be, then it is meant to be. If it's not, then it's not. As simple as that. And who controls this? And who has the ultimate knowledge and justification of why these things are allowed to happen? Allah . Believe in Him. Believe in His timing, believe in His plans.

I didn't get to go to the talk but I get to spend some time with my whole family tolak Along. Bersempit dalam kereta sebab Yan ajak keluar gi Giant, Adik sat on my lap.. of which I will not be able to let him do that again unless he slims down as he gets older lulz.

Aaaanyway, now back to the first one. I've encountered a few similar situations. 
Different reactions. Makcik tadi tu kira antara pleasant ones jugak lah.. daripada yang jawab
"uui.. meremang bulu roma dengar art-art ni.." yg jenis mmg pantang dengar seni-seni ni..
I even heard seniors from a particular tahfiz centre memang tak galakkan juniors dia amek bidang ni. 

Or even those yg mmg dalam bidang ni tapi mcm tak yakin,
"I tengok stok-stok assalamualaikum wbt je ni..."

Sekali sekala bolehlah nk wat lek wat cool tapi to a certain extent, I find it disturbing.

ilmu Allah ni luas, terpulang pada kita yang nak meneroka, learn from geniuses of the field that we're in, manipulate or even innovate it to benefit the ummah, and most importantly, take back what was once ours. . Tak payah cerita panjang bab ni, semua orang tau. Cuma kena ingatkan.

My QSBE (Quran Sunnah and Built Environment) lecturer, Dr Spahic Omer, said (paraphrase) "Islam is the way of life, Islam is life. And when there's life, there's built environment. And what is built environment? Built environment is the framework of life..." "This environment is a fertile ground for evil doings - corruption/bribery, arrogance, etc. How do you avoid this? With, Taqwa. When one perceives architecture as a mean to serve God, he remembers that he will always be, number one, servant of God. Quran and Sunnah stop someone from evil.." Awesome lecturer by the way, rasa macam pergi international talk every week. Rasa macam masuk kelas Quotes and Sayings.. :P

Anyway, do you know why is this happening?
Cuz we're being judgmental. We judge people from their appearance and put them into specified fields yg kita dah kategorikan dalam minda kita. Got what I mean?
Man, what's up with that attitude?

Nak membebel pasal judgmental dah masuk satu bab lain. Mungkin perlukan buku berjilid. No, wait. Tak perlu sebenarnya.. kalau semua orang faham yang membezakan kita cuma taqwa.

Dang. Banyak membebel kebelakangan ni. I need to regain my calmness. Hahah.

Assalamualaikum.
So I was scrolling the IIUM Online group dkt facebook, wat relaks2 macam xde keje padahal ada sebongkah kayu nak diukir....
Jarang sebenarnya nak tgk group ni tp terasa nak bukak pulak pagi ni, and I found this: 

Kalau tak silap, akak nilah salah sorg wakil KAED yg menang election hari tu, being the only sister.
And so I read the comments, as usual..

Banyak tips and teguran no? Alhamdulillah.. :)

Back in CFS, I used to do my work dekat studio mahallah, which is free from the brothers maka aksi2 kami buat kerja dan tidur juga freestyle. So it wasn't really a problem back then kalau nk stay up. But since kat sini takde studio dkt mahallah, nak tak nak, some work, you will really need to use the studio and therefore will have to go to KAED.

So far I haven't had the need to stay dkt studio, but knowing the nature of the course, I know time like this will come sooner or later. My friends who are taking Architecture and QS pun, dah mula buat kerja dkt studio sampai pukul 2-3, 4-5 pagi.. oh, even some from my course pun prefer to do their work at the studio as well sebenarnya.

Sometimes bukan tak boleh nak buat kerja kat bilik, but some people need company to make sure they didnt fall asleep. Trust me, forcing yourself to stay up doing work while your room mates are sleeping, and knowing that your bed is just right next to you, is not easy, especially when you hadn't had any sleep at all for the past hours..

Anyway, nak terhadkan masa tak lebih pukul 12, lepas tu balik mahallah, would be quite hard I suppose, especially when you need to use the studio tables and stuffs like that.

The part mintak brothers temankan tu, serious segan sebenarnya. Plus, they need to do their work too. Tapi memandangkan agak bahayalah UIA ni dgn macam2 kes yg dengar baru2 ni, takboleh nk buat apalah. Kalau tak nak diteman jugak, er, stay je lah dkt KAED sampai subuh~ kot?
Oh and jangan gerak sorang-sorang. notetoself.

The thing is you need to stay up and awake, but you need some rest at times. Tak terfikir pulak pasal tidur dkt surau KAED. Betul jugak kan..
Tapi kalau semua tido situ pun tak boleh jadi jugak kan. In my studio, we got one room which was originally bilik stor, lepas gotong royong hari tu, got some space (and the sisters thought of buying tikar ke apa kan, selesalah sikit.) Which is, quite cool. We can even pray kat dalam tu.. toilet pun sebelah studio je....... (tapi studio panjang so sebelah tu takdelah dekat mana, but, dekatlah jugak. :P)
 
Ayu said in their studio, the seniors even made a compartment (was it?) for the sisters to rehat-rehat.

Sedih kan hidup ktorang? HAHAHAH. ok abaikan.

Jihad! Jihad!
:D

"Ramai orang pakai niqab kan , sekarang..?"
Jeling. "dan...?" Sinis.
".. tapikan, macam trend pulak.."
"kan..?" Senyum. Expected.

but who are we to judge people's intention..?

Dulu hari kantin sekolah, buat tema Souq Al-Arabiyyah. Pasar Arab.
And the girls were encouraged to wear niqab. I tried, for one whole day. Yelah, bila lagi kan..
I felt, yes, protected.
Macam lebih senang berurusan dengan orang, I mean, people appreciate your communication skill more.
Dan, kurang segan untuk bercakap dengan lelaki.

"The less you reveal, the more people can wonder.."

So anyway, last Friday, we went to the workshop for our second project. (Workshops bukak masa office hour je, kalau bukak sampai malam I bet everyone would stay there.)

We need to wear the mask as it was going to be very dusty.. veerry dusty. Banyak kali jugaklah kena bukak nak amek nafas n lap peluh. -.-
And I tell myself, "If this is how it's like, I can never be a niqabi."

Aalaa, my studio-mate from Egypt, (married and pregnant hikhik) said so too. Lebih kurang: "I can never wear a niqab. Back in Egypt, I used to wear it once because everyone else there is wearing it..I don't think I can stand wearing it.. " *Takes off her mask* "Take a breath..!" *Laughs*

Salutations to the niqabis! .. and the doctors, dentists, ehh..

Oh and when I was using the router, I didn't wear the workshop goggle. So another studio-mate of mine, Hakim gave me the goggle and I put it on. Seconds after, tak sempat nak on balik mesin tu, I took it off. "Tak nampak?"
"Tak!"
"Pakai lah dua-dua. Aku pakai dua-dua jugak tadi."
"Bukan tak nampak apa, WAP!"
hahah. Sape pakai spek mesti faham.
Lepas guna mesin tu memang macam mandi debu lah.
Angkat tangan nak lap peluh, and the dust on my sleeves masuk mata. Seronoknya.

Oh and and,
Aa tengah tunggu kayu dia kena potong dekat bandsaw and our lecturer, brother Ismail nak tunjuk kat org lain yg dorg boleh buat mcm Aa to make things easier. But he forgot her name...
"Tu, macam yg siapa tu buat, siapa nama dia?"
"Kat band?"
"Kak Ben?"
"Eh tak, yang dekat bandsaw tu ke?"
"Ohh. Amboi kau, aku ingat, sekolah agama panggil kak ben, kak ben.."
and I was like, brother, you don't know Irshadians and nicknames. I wonder how would it be like kalau brother tau what people call me. hahaha.

Masa study circle II hari tu, ada mass lecture and it was about Justice. Gulsum abla (Kak Gulsum, she is my naqibah, from Turkey) was very disappointed when we we're not being that active in the class. So she said "Those who are in my class, please raise your hands." Pastu kenalah respon kan dkt soalan tu..
"What do you think of when you see the word Justice.." my study circle mate, a senior, talks about being justice to the knife, using it to cut meat and not to hammer a nail. Fatma abla turned to our side and said "I saw someone else raising their hands over here."
Ah sudah.
Gave my opinion on Justice, how justice doesn't really have to mean equal in quantity, and she asked
"What do you do, sister?"
"I'm doing applied arts and design.."
"Sorry?"
"I'm from KAED.."
"Ohh. I thought you're doing social sciences."
:)

Oh and Qila asked Sis Gulsum if she ever gets mad. And she said, rarely.
So we asked why, she answered it with a poem.
"I used to be really mad at someone until I read a poem, about love.."
"Say it in Turkish.."
"Would you understand?" *Speaks in Turkish*
Ternganga. HAHAHA. So she translated the poem and basically it says, don't waste your time hating people as you may not realise  how time flies, and you'll regret not loving them when you had the time.
***
Usrah hari tu, buat dekat bilik nawal n syu. And tetiba masuk pasal Dengan Lafaz Bismillah. One of them found out that the main story of Ji is actually based on her story. and I got hit. hahahaha.

Till then.
Terbanyak cakaplah pulak . Back to work .

Biasan.

Perbualan dekat CFS dulu, lebih kurang,
"Macam mana kalau, satu hari nanti, dekat main campus, korang nampak kita makan berdua-duaan, duduk bertentang dengan lelaki?"
Diam.
"Kitorang husnudzhon lelaki tu abang awak...?"
"Macam mana kalau, dia tu memang korang semua kenal, memang dari batch kita..?"
"Er.. Atas urusan kerja, projek..?"
"Kalau selalu sangat..?"
"Husband awak? Dah nak kawen kan .. hahaha."
"Serious ni.." Diam lagi. "Doa, please? Mohon dijauhkan.."
"InsyaAllah, will do. Will do."

To be honest, I don't know.
I don't.
I can't even imagine.


***
"Tak tahulah kenapa, tapi saya rasa saya makin jahat owh.."
"Pernah tak dengar orang cakap, "Aku rasa aku makin solehah lah.."?"
Ketawa.
"I've read somewhere, kalau kita nak berubah, memang akan ada perasaan kita ni jahat, belum cukup baik. Kira macam reminder lah, for us to strive and be better."

***
"If someday something happens, please jangan give up tegur kita. Walau macam mana pun reaksi kita masa korang tegur tu. Please, jangan tinggal."
"Same here.."
***
"Korang, bersyukur tahu, ada kawan-kawan macam ni?"

***
SMS masuk.
"...Sure, I would LOVE to meet you guys tp like you always said, as long as the relation lives in the doa, our friendship will last abadan abada. That's what I'm holding on to.. =)"
