Iftar @ Masjid Putrajaya~

Salam’alaik. Ramadhan al-mubarak to all readers. May Allah blessings and guidance will always be with us. Insya Allah. On 23 of august which was on Sunday, 2nd day of Ramadhan, 9 of us went to Masjid Putrajaya to break our fast and do our Terawih prayers. We chose to go there because our lecturer, Ust. Ikmal Zaidi became the Imam for the Terawih prayers. And most of us are excited to hear his recitation during the Terawih prayers. And of coz, not only becoz of that but also to strengthen our Ukhuwah among us. So, we arrived there at around 6 p.m., and took lots and lots of pictures. (Nice pictures though). Alhamdulillah we had our Iftar and did the Terawih at ease. So, these are some pictures that we took during our trip there and @ Masjid Putrajaya itself.

Salam'alaik. My dearest friends, this is an article that i got in the internet regarding with the issue of Niqab. I hope with this article will make us understand about Niqab. Insya Allah u will get some benefits from it.

By UmAmir
All too often Muslim women in niqab are ridiculed and called names regardless of time and place. Unfortunately, a woman who wears niqab in the United States will get better reception from the kafir than from Muslims. Muslim women often call women in niqab “ninjas” and “fitna on the face”, only failing to realize that they have wronged themselves.
Allah said: “If you do good, you do good for your own selves, and if you do evil, you do it against yourselves.” (17:7)
“Whosoever does righteous deeds it is for the benefit of himself, and whosoever does evil, it is against his own self.”

This paper was written in response to those people who say things like "The niqab is not in Islam”, or niqab is "bad for dawa", as well as those individuals who scoff at it too lightly. People should understand that the niqab is from the Qur’an and Hadith. Even if you hold the view of it not being wajib it is still THE BEST thing and anyone who wears it is to be respected. Anyone who discourages the wearing of niqab or denies it being in Islam or makes fun of someone who wears it should fear ALLAH and reexamine their hearts and intentions.

"Allah has sent us to deliver whomsoever chooses, from the worship of
men to the 'uboodiyah (worship and servitude) of Allah. And from the
narrowness of this world, to the vastness of this world and the Hereafter. And from the oppression of the (false) religions, to the justice of Islam
." - Sahabee Rab`ee ibn Aamir [Ibn Katheer's al-Bidayah wa an-Nihaayah]

Religious Reference to Niqab
“O Prophet! Tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the
believers to draw their cloaks (veils, screen themselves completely except the eyes ) all over their bodies
.” (Surah Al-Ahzaab – Verse #59 This tafseer is Agreed upon by Ibn Kathir, Qurtabi and At Tabrani )
“And Say to the believing women to lower their gaze (from looking at forbidden things), and protect their private parts (from illegal sexual acts) and not to show off their adornment except only that which is apparent (like both eyes for necessity to see the way, or outer palms of hands or one eye or dress like veil, gloves, head cover, apron), and to draw their veils all over Juyubihinna (i.e. their bodies, faces, necks and bosoms) (Surah An-Nur, Verses 30-31, This tafseer is Agreed upon by Ibn Kathir, Qurtabi and At Tabrani )

Generally there are two opinions regarding covering the face. One view held by the Ulema is that the niqab (covering the face) is wajib (compulsory) and other Ulema hold the view it is Mustahab (recommended and the best thing to do but not compulsory). Both scholarly opinions are dependent upon the concept of perceiving Ummul Mu’mineen, the wives of the prophet, as being an example to all Muslim women, or in a category of their own.

Be that as it may, following the etiquettes Allah taught the Prophet’s wives was the way of his companions and those that came after them. And, the best way is to follow Rasulullah’s, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, practice as well as his companions. Ibn Kathir holds that these commandments are applicable to all Muslim women. (Tafseer Ibn Kathir, Vol. 3, p. 483)

This following hadith explains when and under what circumstance the verses of hijab was revealed. The wives of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to go to Al-Manasi, a vast open place (near Baqia at Medina) to answer the call of nature at night. 'Umar used to say to the Prophet "Let your wives be veiled," but Allah's Apostle did not do so. One night Sauda bint Zam'aradi Allahu anha the wife of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam went out at 'Isha' time and she was a tall lady. 'Umarradi Allahu anhu addressed her and said, "I have recognized you, O Sauda." He said so, as he desired eagerly that the verses of Al-Hijab (the observing of veils by the Muslim women) may be revealed. So Allah revealed the verses of "Al-Hijab" (A complete body cover excluding the eyes). (Hadith -Sahih Bukhari 1:148)

After the verses of hijab were revealed certain changes took place within the society at the time. For instance, women were carried on camels in a covered Haudaj, and they only went out if their faces and bodies were fully covered as explained in the following hadiths:
'A'isha radi Allahu anha used to say: "When (the Verse): 'They should draw their veils over their necks and bosoms,' was revealed, (the ladies) cut their waist sheets at the edges and covered their faces with the cut pieces." (Hadith - Sahih Bukhari 6:282)

“When the verse "That they should cast their outer garments over their
persons" was revealed, the women of Ansar came out as if they had crows
over their heads by wearing outer garments.”
(Hadith - Abu Dawud, Narrated Umm Salamah, Ummul Mu'minin radi Allahu anha)

Narrated 'A'isha radi Allahu anha who said, "The riders would pass us while we were with the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam). When they got close to us, we would draw our outer cloak from our heads over our faces. When they passed by, we would uncover our faces.” (Hadith - Recorded by Ahmad, Abu Dawud and ibn Majah, Narrated 'A'isha. [In his work Jilbab al-Marah al-Muslimah, al-Albani states (p. 108) that it is hasan due to corroborating evidence. Also, in a narration from Asma {who was not the wife of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam), Asma also covered her face at all times in front of men.)

A'isha radi Allahu anha narrated: "May Allah bestow His Mercy on the first Muhajirat (emigrants). When Allah revealed, '...and draw their Khumur over their Juyubihinna...', they (i.e. the women) tore their material and covered themselves with it."(Sahih Bukhari) Ibn Hajar Al-Asqalanee, who is known as Ameer Al-Mu'mineen in the field of Hadeeth, said that the phrase, "covered themselves", in the above Hadith means that they "covered their faces". [Fath Al-Bari].

A’isha radi Allahu anha says: “(during Hajj in the state of Ihraam) when the male should walk in front of us while in the company of Rasulullah (sallallahu Alayhi wa sallam), then we would drop our veils from the head over the face.”
In addition, women were no longer required or encouraged to participate in Jihad unless completely necessary. They were forbidden to travel without a Mahram. A man who did not apply these rules on his family was called a Dayyouth.
In order to shed more light on the issue, it is just as important to look at the opinions of the scholars about Niqab.
Ibn Abbas radi Allahu anhu, who was one of the most knowledgeable companions of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, states that the Muslim women are ordered to cover their head and faces with outer garments except for one eye.

Ibn Katheer said...
‘Women must not display any part of their beauty and charms to strangers except what cannot possibly be concealed.’

Imam Ghazaali(mentions in his famous book of Fiqh Ihyaal Uloom):
"Woman emerged (during the time of Rasulullah 'saw') with niqabs on their Faces"
Jami'atul Ulema Junbi Africa sate that the proper opinion for the Hanafi madhab is that "A woman must be properly and thoroughly covered in a lose outer cloak which totally conceals her entire body including her face!"
(This from the book Islamic Hijab by Jami'atul Ulema P.12)

It is also state in the Famous books of Fiqh Durrul Mukhtar...
"Young women are prohibited from revealing their faces in the presence of men."
The Mufassireen, such as Al-Qurtubi, site in their Tafseer of the Ayah on Jilbab (Al-Ahzab 33:59), that the Jilbab is: "a cloth which covers the entire body... Ibn 'Abbas and 'Ubaidah As-Salmaani () said that it is to be fully wrapped around the women's body, so that nothing appears but one eye with which she can see." [Tafseer Al-Qurtubi].

Imam Qurtubi in his Al-Jamia li Ahkaamul Qurãn states:
‘All women are in effect covered by the terms of the verse which embraces the Shari'a principle that the whole of a woman is ‘Awrah’ (to be concealed) – her face, body and voice, as mentioned previously. It is not permissible to expose those parts except in the case of need, such as the giving of evidence…’
In Fathul Bari, chapter Hajj, a tradition reported on the authority of A'isha radi Allahu anha says: "A woman in a state of Ihram (during Hajj and Umrah) should stretch her head - cloth over to her face to hide it."

Sheikh ibn Uthaimin ....
“The Islamic hijab is for the women to cover everything that is forbidden for her to expose. That is, she covers everything that she must cover. The first of those bodily parts that she must cover is her face. It is the source of temptation and the source of people desiring her. Therefore, the woman must cover her face in front of those men that are not mahram. As for those of who claim that the Islamic hijab is to cover the head, shoulders, back, feet, shin and forearms while allowing her to uncover her face and hands, this is a very amazing claim. This is because it is well-known that the source of temptation and looking is the face. How can one say that the Shari'a does not allow the exposure of the foot of the woman while it allows her to uncover her face? It is not possible that there could be in the Esteemed, Wise and Noble Shari'a a contradiction. "

Jamaal Zarabozo (a scholar of Islam in the United States)....
“In Surah Al-Ahzab, verse 59, Allah has ordered the believing women to wear a jilbab. A jilbab as defined in all the books of tafseer is a cloak that covers the woman's body from the top of her head to her feet. It is also described in those books, form the scholars of the earliest generation that after that verse was revealed, the women would completely cover themselves, leaving, for example, just one eye exposed so they can see the road. Hence, this is the outer garment of the woman that she must wear when she is in front of men she is not related to. “

~Ramadhan Al-Mubarak~

Salam'alaik ana ucapkan kepada antum semua. Hamdan lillah, dengan izin Allah serta rahmat dan kasih sayangNya, ana dapat menulis lagi di blog ana ini.

Ana ingin mengucapkan Ahlan wa Sahlan ya Ramadhan! Subhanallah... pejam celik pejam celik, dah setahun rupanya. Cepatnya masa berlalu. Alhamdulillah... dapat juga kita berjumpa lagi dengan Ramadhan tahun ini.

Sahabat sekalian, rebutlah peluang dalam bulan yang penuh barakah ini untuk mempertingkatkan lagi amalan kita. Dan perbanyakkanlah lagi amalan-amalan kita. Kalau ada yang berazam untuk berubah pada bulan Ramadhan ini, berubahlah kepada yang lebih baik dan semoga terus istiqamah dengan perubahan itu. Kalau yang hisap rokok tu, berhentilah. Inilah peluang kamu untuk berlatih dari tidak menghisapnya.

Duhai sahabat yang dikasihi, dalam bulan Ramadhan ini, ada dua hari yang sangat istimewa. Iaitu Nuzul Al-Quran dan Lailatul Qadar. Lakukanlah amalan dengan seikhlas hati dan perbanyakkanlah ibadah dalam bulan ini. Lebih-lebih lagi 10 hari yang terakhir. Semoga kita mendapat malam Lailatul Qadar tersebut. Allah telah berfirman dalam al-Quran yang bermaksud:" Sesungguhnya kami telah menurunkannya (Al-Quran) pada malam qadar. Dan tahukah kamu apakah malam kemuliaan itu?. Malam kemuliaan itu lebih baik dari seribu bulan".Surah al-Qadar:1-3.

Dan pada waktu ini juga, kita akan menduduki peperiksaan akhir semester. Janganlah kita rasa terbeban dengan melakukan ibadah puasa ini sewaktu peperiksaan nanti. Dan jangan pula kita jadikan peperiksaan itu satu alasan bagi kita untuk kita tidak berpuasa. Perbanyakkanlah zikrullah , mudah-mudahan Allah permudahkan segalanya. Rabbi yassir wa la tu'assir.

Sampai di sini dahulu. Mudaha-mudahan kita dapat menjalani ibadah puasa dengan sempurna. Dan semoga kita mendapat ganjaran yang berlipat ganda. Insya Allah. Fastabiqul Khairaat.

"Setiap amalan anak cucu Adam adalah miliknya kecuali puasa, ia adalah milik-Ku dan Akulah yang akan memberi ganjarannya dengannya."-Hadis Qudsi.

Wallhu'alam & wassalam.

Redha (Inteam)

Usah di salahkan takdir yang melanda
Renung kembali sejarah silam
Dengan membiarkan ku sendiri
Ku terumbang ambing mengenal diri

Mujurlah Allah itu mengasihi
Aku diberi arah petunjuk
Berlindung dengan Allah
Menerus kehidupan
Ku mengenal makna
Dosa dan pahala

Dengan kehendakNya
Kau datang semula menghampiri ku
Dan aku terpaku
Hingga ku hilang tiap bicara

Bukan ku menjauhi
Tetapi amat sukar sekali
Bila kenang kembali
Aku disisih dan dibuang ke tepi
Malah aku tidak dipeduli
Allah Maha Mengetahui
Yang ada di hati
Biar Dia menentukannya

Usah di salahkan takdir yang melanda
Renung kembali sejarah silam
Ku redha dan sedia, terima
Yang tertulis dalam kehendakNya

Terima kasih atas segalanya...

Terima kasih ku ucapkan
Kerana kau sudi hadir dalam hidupku
Walaupun hanya untuk seketika waktu
Aku ingin kau tahu
Bahawa aku bahagia

Terima kasih ku ucapkan
Walau hadirmu hanya sementara
Dengan izin Allah
Kau adalah wasilah bagiku
Untuk menerima Hidayah dari-Nya

Terima kasih ku ucapkan
Kerana setiap kata-katamu
Telah menjadi inspirasi bagiku
Untuk meneruskan perjuangan
Untuk menegakkan Islam kembali

Terima kasih ku ucapkan
Walaupun diri ini tidak punya apa
Kau tetap melayaniku
Dengan penuh mesra
Supaya ku dapat merasa nikmat Halawatul Ukhuwah itu

Terima kasih ku ucapkan
Segala persoalanku
Telah pun terjawab
Aku yakin semua ada hikmahnya
Doakan untuk ku semoga
Aku terus thabat dalam perjuangan

Terima kasih ku ucapkan
Akan ku semat di dalam hati ini
Segala kenangan pahit dan manis
Agar suatu masa nanti
Aku masih mampu tersenyum
Bila mengenangkannya kembali

Terima ksih ku ucapkan
Atas segala nasihat yang diberikan
Segala dorongan dan semangat perjuangan
Akan ku abadikan di dalam diri ini
Sehingga akhir hayat nanti

Terima kasih ku ucapkan
Semoga ukhuwah yang terbina ini
Akan terus kekal abadi
Walaupun kau jauh disisi
Walaupun mungkin kita tak kan bertemu lagi
Aku akur segalanya adalah ketentuan Illahi

Terima kasih atas segalanya…
Duhai akhowat fillah...

~Terjalinnya Ukhuwah~

Salamun’alaik. Salam seindah tautan ukhuwah yang bersemi di taman ilmu yang penuh barakah ini. Pada post ana kali ini, ana nak berkongsi cerita tentang akhawat yang ana baru berkenalan pada hari yang lalu.

Pada hari sabtu yang baru berlalu ni, terdapat program ESQ anjuran I luv Islam di KUIS. Mereka melakukan program tersebut di banquet hall berdekatan dengan asrama ana. Ana tak mengikuti program tersebut. Dan hampir semua pesertanya adalah pelajar dari Universiti luar. Jadi, ceritanya macam ni. Kami mengambil mereka sebagai adik-beradik angkat. Kami mengambil 6 siswi dari peserta tersebut. Ini adalah kerana asrama yang kami tinggal seperti apartment. Dan apartment kami agak besar dan boleh memuatkan lagi beberapa orang, walaupun kekurangan katil. Tapi, apa pun, semuanya berjalan dengan lancar.

Kami diminta untuk menjemput mereka jam 7 malam di bawah blok asrama. Setelah 15 minit menunggu, akhirnya, kami dapat berkenalan dengan mereka. Seramai 6 siswi telah mengikut ana dan rakan ana ke apartment kami. Setibanya di bilik, mulalah kami berta’aruf. Kak Lina, kak Kautsar, kak Dila, kak Hidayah, kak Hidayati dan kak Najwa. Masing-masing perkenalkan diri. Seronok dapat meluangkan bersama mereka. Walaupun baru sahaja berkenalan, rasa nya dah macam seminggu. Ada diantara mereka yang belajar di Mesir di university Alexandria (tak silap) mengambil course medic. Dan apa pula yang dari BMI di Gombak. Dalam bidang networking dan sebagainya. Apa yang buat ana kagum dengan mereka, mereka selalu solat berjemaah. Tak lepas dari membaca Quran selepas solat. Dan juga melakukan solat sunat qabliah dan ba’diah. Sedangkan ada di antara mereka sendiri yang baru kenal pada hari itu. Subhanallah… ana pun tak sehebat mereka.

Pada malam itu, setelah selesai solat, kami saling berkongsi cerita. begitu juga pada keesokan paginya selepas solat subuh. Sempat lagi kami bercerita. Sedangkan program mereka akan bermula jam 8. Yang paling menarik perhatian ana adalah cerita dari kak Najwa. Kerana dia bersekolah di BMI, sebuah IPT yang secular, mereka tidak mempunyai usrah seperti kami. Kini, dia serta 4 lagi kawan nya yang lain, yang mengikuti usrah luar, ingin menggerakkan usrah di IPT mereka. Dan mereka semua bertindak sebagai naqibah. Namun, mereka tidak tahu cara-cara untuk menarik minat rakan-rakan mereka. Kerana di sekolahnya ada yang tidak memakai tudung dan sebagainya. Dan setiap hujung minggu, dikatakan pasti mereka ‘lesap’ entah ke mana. Dan perkataan seperti ‘usrah’, ‘ukhti’ dan sebagainya adalah terlalu ganjil bagi diri mereka.

Kak Najwa meminta pandangan dan cadangan dari kami semua. Mulalah setiap dari kami memberi cadangan. Dan ana pula memberinya fliers atau tazkirah-tazkirah yang ana dapat melalui usrah yang ana hadir tempoh hari. Kegembiraannya jelas tergambar dari riak wajahnya. Ana yakin, ada pancaran dakwah di situ. Ana kagum dengan semangat dan kesedaran yang Allah berikan pada dirinya untuk berdakwah di tempat IPT nya yang secular. Ana doakan semoga Allah membantu kak Najwa pada setiap langkahnya menegakkan agama Islam di kolejnya itu. Semoga terus thabat dalam perjuangan ya Ukhti!!

Dan yang paling menyentuh hati ana, bila program telah selesai dan mereka hendak pulang ke rumah masing-masing. Sebelum itu, sekali lagi mereka telah solat maghrib berjemaah di bilik ana. Sebelum pulang, kami saling berpelukan dan kami tidak putus-putus mengucapkan terima kasih dan memohon maaf antara satu dengan yang lain. Tidak lupa juga saling memberi kata-kata nasihat dan keinginan untuk bertemu lagi di lain masa. Insya Allah. Perasaan sedih mula bertandang dalam diri ana. Lebih-lebih lagi bila kak Lina mengatakan bahawa dia sedih untuk meninggalkan ana. Huhu.. so sweet akk.. ^_^. Dan yang paling mengejutkan ana adalah apabila, setelah beberapa minit berlalu, apabila semua sudah pulang, kak Hidayati tiba-tiba muncul dengan membawa 3 bungkus burger yang dibelinya di café bawah asrama. Huhu.. lagi sweet.. syukran jazlian akk.. ^_^

Ya Allah, indahnya ukhuwah ini. Semoga ukhuwah yang terbina ini dan kasih sayang yang bersemi kerana Mu, berkekalan dan mekar harum mewangi di jalan dakwah Mu. Dan semoga kami dipertemukan lagi di lain waktu supaya dapat bersama-sama lagi berkongsi cerita dan ilmu. Insya Allah.

P/S: Credits goes to kak dah (shidah), sebab dia yang terserempak dengan salah seorang hamba Allah ni dan dia meminta bantuan shidah untuk menempatkan mereka di rumah kita. Jika tidak kerana pertemuan itu, tidak mungkin kita akan berkenalan dengan akhawat itu semua. Tetapi apa pun, semuanya telah dirancang oleh Allah s.w.t. kerana dia adalah sebaik-baik Perancang dan Penentu. Hamdan lillah…

Virus H1N1- Niqab penyelesaiannya?

"......if u don't have a mask, u can wear a NIQAB".- Seorang doktor dari Fakulti Sains kesihatan dan kejururawatan.
"....kalau awak takde mask, pki NIQAB....".-Dekan JPM.
"....Saya akan pastikan satu hari nanti, semua Mahasiswa WAJIB pki kopiah(bgi muslimin) dan Niqab(bgi muslimat).- Ust. Safuan, unit hal ehwal Islam-JPM.

Salamun'alaik ya asdiqa'i.. harap semua dalam keadaan sihat wal 'afiat di saat wabak flu H1N1 sedang melanda dunia hari ini. Dan bagi mereka yang tak sihat, syafakumullah. Semoga cpt smebuh ye.

Kata-kata di atas tu, adalah kata-kata yang ana dengar sendiri dari orang demikian. Bukan buat-buat atau dengar dari orang lain. Di saat pemakaian Niqab ini menjadi isu, Allah mendatangkan satu wabak yang mana Niqab ini menjadi salah satu penyelesaiannya. Iaitu ianya memainkan peranan sebagai 'mask' yang ramai orang sekarang ini sedang memakainya untuk mencegah diri dari terkena wabak tersebut.

Ketika ana mendengar penjelasan oleh doktor dan dekan JPM, ana teringat kata-kata Ust. Safuan (yang ana tulis di atas tdi),ana rasakan bahawa doa dia seakan-akan termakbul. Saat dia ingin memperjuangkan hak mereka yang memakai niqab, Allah memberikan satu kemudahan baginya untuk mencapai matlamat tersebut. Seolah-olah ini adalah langkah pertama untuk membuatkan para Mahasiswi memakai niqab.

Ketika ana mendengar penjelasan tersebut, dalam hati ana terpekik keriangan.. tak terkata ana.. segala-galanya jelas terpancar dari sinaran mata ana. ^_^. kwn2 ana sume menumpang kegembiraan ana itu. hehe... sekarang ini, ana tak perlu risau lagi tentang tanggapan orang terhadap diri ana. kalau mereka tanya, ana akan ckp bahawa untuk mengelakkan dari wabak H1N1. hehe..

tapi, ana terfikir. apakah bila ada H1N1 je antunna nk pki niqab?lepas tu? nk bukak? hmm.. kalau yang tak bersedia untuk memakai niqab, tak usahlah memakainya, semata-mata kerana H1N1. sebab niqab ini bukanlah seperti mask yang hanya mencegah diri dari wabak tersebut. tapi niqab ini ada kena mengena dengan Islam. Kerana ia adalah pakaian para ummahatul Mukminat dan para Shahabiyah. jadi, tak usahlah kita membuatnya menjadi sesuatu yang dipandang enteng dan tidak ada nilainya.

so, to all my dear frens, wear a mask to protect urself from getting the virus. make sure u practice good hygiene at ur home or wherever u are. til here, ilalliqa' ma'assalamah. jg diri, plg pntg, jg IMAN.
