The months in the Islam calendar

I used to wonder, why does the big events in Islam always changes from year to year, once we had a Kongsi Raya, where the Chinese new year and hari raya aidilfitri was together...
Then later hari raya was in July later on hmmm

So a simple extraction from Wikipedia shows us the number of months is shorter than our gregorian calendar. 
NoPenanggalan IslamLama Hari
1Muharram30
2Safar29
3Rabiul awal30
4Rabiul akhir29
5Jumadil awal30
6Jumadil akhir29
7Rajab30
8Sya'ban29
9Ramadhan30
10Syawal29
11Dzulkaidah30
12Dzulhijjah29/(30)
Total354/(355)
So I'll just stop here =) 

Happy awal muharram. 

May our lives be blessed by Allah =)

Marrying more than one person in islam...

"Islam encourages it! Now you can marry 4 wives!"

That's the thing that comes to mind when someone reverted to Islam right? Well if you're a guy =P

Then someone asked, "other religion didn't do this, how come Islam like that one? (in a negative way)"

hmm...that time, I don't know how to answer cos I don't have the knowledge, now with the little bit of knowledge I've gain;

Disclaimer: So I'll share some info that I've gathered, which I think is accurate...so pandai2 lah, before u wanna say anything, go check it out first okay...

Our prophet Nabi Muhammad s.a.w; definitely has more than one wives; (13 i think)
There's a reason for it, and it's not about taking advantages.

most of the mariage are done when our Prophet was above 55 years of age, EPF retirement age...
He started receiving his revelation at the age of 40 years old; so his marriages are all after that period;

I don't have the right knowledge nor did I study a lot about his history; so here goes!

  • some were arranged marriage. (Already happens at that time, where people just married in respect of to build a better future, right? =)
  • one is married so that she can revert to Islam. (I think mine was something like that? and I'm not the only one =)
  • one married was to take care of her family and children.
  • one marriage is for political reasons. (still occurring now right? even for those non-Islam countries those royal families)
  • one of them is to make peace between 2 places at war.
  • one of them was a prisoners of war.
  • order from Allah S.W.T.

Another fact is that; those marriage are from divorcee; where the husband has been fallen in wars or other cases...

So now you know, it's not for lust, or those "play boy" stuff...

Well, this all triggered from the spread of a whatsapp message in a group...talking about polygamy; I'll just copy and paste it after the break below...oh it's in Malay, I'm not sure about the accuracy of the texts, but look it up if you have to.

Assalamualaikum and thanks for reading, hope this helps you a little in understanding more on Islam.

Come what may

Surah Hud, Verse 93: وَيَا قَوْمِ اعْمَلُوا عَلَىٰ مَكَانَتِكُمْ إِنِّي عَامِلٌ سَوْفَ تَعْلَمُونَ مَن يَأْتِيهِ عَذَابٌ يُخْزِيهِ وَمَنْ هُوَ كَاذِبٌ وَارْتَقِبُوا إِنِّي مَعَكُمْ رَقِيبٌ " Dan wahai kaumku, buatlah sedaya upaya kamu (untuk menentang ugama Allah yang aku sampaikan itu), sesungguhnya aku juga tetap berusaha dengan bersungguh-sungguh (untuk mengembangkannya). Kamu akan ketahui siapakah yang akan didatangi azab yang menghinakannya, dan siapa pula yang berdusta. Dan tunggulah, sesungguhnya aku juga turut menunggu bersama-sama kamu". (Melayu) via iQuran

People are like that...

So today's quotes are from An-Nuur, there's already known people, who where there's benefits, they'll jump in straight away, and if the benefits lessen, they will avoid or make a fuss about it...sounds like someone you know or event's happening around you? Hint...Hudud

They say, "We believe in Allah and in the apostle, and we obey": but even after that, some of them turn away: they are not (really) Believers.
@
Dan (di antara orang-orang yang tidak dikehendakiNya ke jalan yang lurus ialah) mereka yang berkata: "Kami beriman kepada Allah dan kepada RasulNya serta kami taat"; kemudian sepuak dari mereka berpaling (membelakangkan perintah Allah dan Rasul) sesudah pengakuan itu, dan (kerana berpalingnya) tidaklah mereka itu menjadi orang-orang yang sebenarnya beriman.
(An-Nuur 24:47)


When they are summoned to Allah and His apostle, in order that He may judge between them, behold some of them decline (to come).
@
Dan (bukti berpalingnya mereka ialah) apabila mereka diajak kepada Kitab Allah dan Sunnah RasulNya supaya menjadi hakim memutuskan sesuatu di antara mereka, maka dengan serta-merta sepuak dari mereka berpaling ingkar (menolak ajakan itu jika keputusan tidak menguntungkan mereka).
(An-Nuur 24:48)


But if the right is on their side, they come to him with all submission.
@
Dan (sebaliknya) jika keputusan itu memberi hak kepada mereka, mereka segera datang kepadanya dengan tunduk taat (menerima hukumnya).
(An-Nuur 24:49)


Is it that there is a disease in their hearts? or do they doubt, or are they in fear, that Allah and His Messenger will deal unjustly with them? Nay, it is they themselves who do wrong.
@
(Mengapa mereka bersikap demikian), adakah kerana hati mereka mengandungi penyakit (kufur), atau kerana mereka ragu-ragu (terhadap kebenaran hukuman), ataupun kerana mereka takut bahawa Allah dan RasulNya akan berlaku zalim kepada mereka? (Allah dan RasulNya tidak sekali-kali akan berlaku zalim) bahkan merekalah sendiri orang-orang yang zalim (disebabkan keraguan dan kekufuran mereka).
(An-Nuur 24:50)

Well I guess, everything has been decided.

- THE END - 

Rezeki

I'm someone who doesn't like to take things for granted. I once purchased some stuff online, and then when I checked the bill after a few weeks, hey I wasn't billed for it! Yay free stuff! I then proceeded to notify the bank, then after a few days, only they found out their mistake, and I was able to pay it the next month...

So there you have it, once of my experiences hehe...not to brag about it or anything...but in life, if something doesn't belongs to you, you shouldn't take it.
If it's meant for you, then no matter what you do, you can't keep it away from you. Why? Because Allah.

Say: "Verily my Lord enlarges and restricts the Provision to whom He pleases, but most men understand not."

@

Katakanlah (wahai Muhammad): "Sesungguhnya Tuhanku memewahkan rezeki bagi sesiapa yang dikehendakiNya, dan Dia juga yang menyempitkan (bagi sesiapa yang dikehendakiNya); akan tetapi kebanyakan manusia tidak mengetahui (hakikat itu).
(Saba' 34:36)

A song, a story, and the truth behind

Hear this 90s hit - The Way, by FastBall on the radio today, and saw an article about this being a one hit wonder, leads to this story behind the actual song, and how it lead to this song to  be composed...

If you recalled the lyrics, it was about a couple have left without noticed, and found a place that they can be in for a long time...

But the song was composed based on a true story, about a missing couple, and how their story ended tragically, but it was immortalized in this song, by the composer, in another happier manner.

Have a read at the following pages:

Happy new Islamic new year!

Its the new year for Muslims around the universe =D
So I'll share something with you guys and gals

Happy new year,I'm still having trouble remembering the term of Islamic new year,but it represents our prophet's migration to Mecca (correction: from mecca to madinah), where Islam is home,where the haji pilgrimage is held,and the location of the kabah,the square thingy that people walks around it?

That's the holy land,where it's started in the Quran,if you're a Muslim and able,you've gotta visit this place,where it all started.

Also,when we pray,we Muslims,face the directions of the kabah,that's why,in certain places,like in hotels,you'll see one green arrow pointing to somewhere =)

So,its the new year,in Malaysia,native Malays are Muslims,most rulers are Muslims if not all,I just that those who has done wrong,stand up and face the judgement on this world, if you're able to commit to something,why won't you admit to it? Well,for me,if one is innocent or guilty,only Allah knows,and Allah knows and sees all the actions where we human do not.

Also,Allah grants rezeki (Google says its fortune in English),so those rezeki are granted for each and every being on this world, mainly I would like to say,the fact that we are still alive,or living a long live,its not the sake of living, a rezeki,also a chance for us to repent, and to undo what we've done, if its can't be undo,then we must try our best to do more good deeds to the people around us, forgiveness is a great gift to start,and do not take what's not yours...

Hope this message teaches you something as this is what I felt,and I feel that sharing this is a nice way to start a new Islamic year =)

Selamat awal muharam =)

P.s. go read the qurans translation,it's available on the internet,and its like the shortest book with consist information from Allah, my best friend and wife told me,start from the back,and its not a bad idea, start there and work your way to the front...you'll gain a lot of things,if you just think about it...
