The permanent, everlasting reminder.



To the one and only person, who would surely ponder upon these words, regardless of how exaggerated they are, or how excruciatingly long they may be.

in the times of where you start to lose sense, in what is right and what is wrong,
remember,
the rights will always be with those who had the best common courtesy.

As you lose sight in those who are right and those who are wrong,
remember,
Religion will always be with who are right, and surely the wrongs, when they take advantage on what religion has to offer.

As time flies and you look at the road you're on so far,
Remember,
you are where you are not just because of your effort, but the support you have from everyone, the prayers from your parents. In sickness, In health, in the hectic life you have, you are still a son, with the responsibilities to be accomplished and will surely be asked infront of God later on.

In times of disbelieves, and when man's wrath and their way of life part you from your path, 
Remember, there is the right example for you to follow, and the wrong example for you to refrain. you are stronger and wiser, as you can still differ the rights and remain with it.

In times of where you see everyone in every walk of society,
Appreciate, be kind to them as the kindest among them are the ones people will usually overlook. 
Remember, 
the ones from the low society often been recited in history as those who paved an easier route to heaven.

Of all the hardship you've been through, you've always said to yourself to be strong as there will always be a harder obstacle ahead. So raise your chin and move forward, there's always a silver lining in everything.

When the world gave everything it has to offer, be humble, and remember your roots.
Remember 
Allah will always have better plans for you and trust Him, and dont lose faith in Him. Surely He'll provide you with the strength to move on and reach Him in all the right medium you're using.

To the one and only person, who would surely ponder upon these words, 
to the future me, always remember, hopefully when you remember, you will be better.

tributes

this tributes a lifetime memoir. of those who were there, significantly, paved the path that i walk today. ad if it wasnt because of them, life would go the way i could never have foreseen. specifically saying, in my life of learning. heres to them. may Allah grant the best He could offer. A specific person that plays a role not in teaching alone, but also offered me something better, a perspective.

Mu'allimah Waznati. she was my science teacher when i was in secondary school. In my form 1 studies i wasnt the brightest to begin with. i studied for the cause of the flow. more or less for the friends as we share the common goal : exams are on the way, you just need to get through it, not to be the head of the  curd or the alpha wolves. so the story starts when i was in form 1. it was a little culture shock adjusting from the bahasa syllabus in primary school to the english version. the 1st test was not much of a problem as everyone passed moderately. as the mid term exam approaches, teacher A decided to quit and leave the school with the exam paper she constructed as the last contribution she had to give. concurrently, teacher B substituted and she was the one marking the papers that teacher A made. and most of the students failed that paper. (we were young and st*pid at that time) a few people wrote a letter to teacher B to asking her to teach properly and not take this 'teaching' so lightly sounds rude, but some of the student actually made a petition for this purpose. not being able to handle the stress, teacher B decided to do the unthinkable. teacher B called all the students of form 1 prior the second semester test and discreetly said that its a ' last minute study ' . after that session we were told to memorize the answers, including the flow of the ABCD in the objective part. it was the real exam paper. and when people knew it, we all went a little cray cray. "this is my chance to score' i see those whom before were answering the objective section by taking chances from choosing the colour of the pen they picked randomly from their pencil case to memorizing the flow of the objective section like its some sort of the Holy Qur'an 's verses. But at the end of the day, when the results came out, most of us still failed, and it really took a blow to teacher B. and worst, 'kantoi' by the other teaching staffs and higher ups of her activity causing that teacher to lose the job. and after that there was no teacher to actually teach the science subject for real. only relief teachers and seniors took the job , on and off. which somehow kinda strucks me a little.

its my favorite subject but i could not learn properly because there are those who blame the system implied on them. and the teachers were victims of blame by the students who expected life would be easy. it was until the end of form 2 that we actually have a real teacher, who decided to took the spot where the gloomy rumors will haunt the teacher as if they are doomed to be teaching a subject that will fail the students and they will get the blame regardlessly. i admired her courage to stand up and try her very best to do what she had left of her time, a few weeks before final semester 2 exam.  and at this moment i realize, she wasnt trying to cheat her way through. and with all the efforts she is giving, why are we still gambling answers during exams instead of actually really trying to learn.

A few days before the exam we had a little feast and we had to cook our own meal. i still remember that time i was cooking ayam madu and she came to me.

' ali dh sarapan belum?'
'nanti ayam ni siap saya sarapan .'
' takpela ali. awak pergi makan dlu sarapan. budak budak lain semua dh makan makanan cikgu xxx bawak dkt kelas .tinggal kamu 3 org je tak makan lagi'
' takpela. sikit je lg ni'

and the teacher went away and came back a few minute later a bag of  hot choc donuts.

'ali makan la ni. bagi dkt kwn2 skali. share share la ye.'
' donut ni bukan mahal ke ? nnt saya bayar balek ye. terima kasih' i was eating it while making this statement. after finished eating, i took rm15 from my wallet to pay for the doughnuts.
'total donut td rm15 kn?? terima kasih, again' and what she replied was probably the life changing part of my life.

' tak payah la bayar rm15 ni. murah je. awk tau tak cmne nk bayar dgn harga yang lagi murah tp lagi senang. '
' mcmane tu?'
' awak belajar rajin2. awak score highest utk science final ni. kire lepas tu langsai la hutang kita'
' lagi senang ke cmtu? mcm byr rm15 lg senang je hahaha' i replied with a cynical laughter hoping that she was just joking.

'saya tau awak boleh ali. kalau awak usaha lebih sikit, sikit je. msti boleh. ape pn jadi, saya taknak duit rm15 '

from what i understand, she just wanted me to work harder, and working harder would benefit me from the success that would come, and also the waived rm15 ofcourse.  so i tried my best, and i saw her again during the 1st week of form 3 .

' result exam dh keluar ke? bole tak saya nk tgk kertas saya, nk tgk apa yg bole di improve sebelum pmr ni '
 she had to dig throughout the piled up papers to find mine.. and when she did find mine,

' tahniah ali. kan saya dh cakap . lagi sng dr byr rm15, '
from the inside i reacted with a statement ' eh dia ingat lagi janji dlu. dh brpe bulan kot'
and utterly from the outside i only managed to smile and thanked her with the simplest form, and nothing more. at that point was the time i realize, success is not for those born with the greatest talent that they may have, theoretically run in their family for generations. but  sheer hardwork plays a role also in order to succeed. and the more hard work, the higher the chances for you to get what you want.

and so lucky for me, is that this teacher's effort does not end there. although she didnt teach me during my pmr times, so often she would come and see me, and ask if i have any other problems that needed problems. although most of the time the she did not provide a direct solution to the problem, she constantly reminds me that one of the solution is to keep try harder. and sometimes a reminder is all you need to be better. and all this theory is well approved after a significant change in the academic results were achieved.


 *****************************************

and here hopefully reminiscing what happened before could inspire me to be better at the time i need it most. a year left in clinical years. and i definitely need to do more than i am doing now, more than what i did before. life is not going to get any easier , and for that its crucial for, me especially, to keep motivated.

EITHER THE FEAR OF FAILURE OR FAILURE WILL MOTIVATE YOU. ITS YOUR CHOICE TO CHOOSE

Antara tiga darjat

kadang kadang manusia terlupa. 
dalam hakikat penciptaan dirinya
ada beza antara tuhan dan hamba
ada beza antara manusia biasa dan nabi mereka

Seringkali dalam setiap perbuatan kita, kita dinasihatkan untuk berhati hati. Bukan kerana perbuatan itu betul atau salah, Tetapi apabila perbuatan salah itu ditafsir sebagai kebenaran, Dan perbuatan salah itu dianggap benar. Dan aku takut, seandainya kebenaran itu dikatakan benar, Hanya kerana lebih ramai yang mmenyatakan yang salah itu benar. Maka aku tertanya tanya, dimana peranan akal untuk berfikir, peranan iman untuk memandu akal. mungkin apa yang kita perlu sedar, fungsi muhasabah lebih dari sekadar mengisi manisnya kalam nasihat.

Kita bukan tuhan. Kalau tuhan semestinya apa yang dibuat sentiasa betul, Dan bukan tugas kita untuk persoalkan hakNya sebagai tuhan mahupun persoalkan baik atau buruk tindakan tersebut. 

Kita juga bukan nabi. yang mana perbuatan nabi seringkali melambangkan keindahan Islam. Walaupun jika dilihat kisah Nabi Hidir, Nabi Musa sendiri meragui tindakannya. Jika dilihatkan lainnya nabi dan kita, seandainya nabi membuat silap, Allah akan tegur secara terus. Persoalannya di sini , apakah kita juga akan merasakan tindakan kita betul selagi mana tuhan belum menegur kita secara terus?

Maka sekali lagi saya bertanya, apakah beza kita dengan tuhan? apakah beza kita dengan nabi? aku sedar, diri ini bukan hebat dalam bab bab sebegini. tapi yang aku pasti, sebagai manusia. kita perlu akan muhasabah diri. 

Gunakan hak untuk berfikir sebelum hak untuk bersuara :)

THE SUMMARY, so far.

sedang mengklik itu ini, sana sini. Mencari sesuatu yang kelihatan seakan akan tidak wujud. mungkinkah aku sedang bosan? maka kembali lah aku ke sini. sekali lagi. harapnya selepas ini lebih konsisten.


glistering my views on my fellow bloggers whom, once were all together with me throughout this journey of epic writings and sharing. And now, most of the writings are virtually unavailable due to further unacquainted commitment. though some have been known to have less time for the hands and minds to sync and marvelously, and effortlessly producing something worth reading.works, marriage. and perhaps even studying (hopefully), seems to be a legit reason of so. but nevertheless, i hope that i may continue doing what i am, and still manage to squeeze some time for all of this. (AMIINNN~)

So far. here i am. clinical years. i cant comment much on the 4th year of medical school, yet. But hey, 3rd year was a year full of memories of which in my opinion is worth sharing, and worth of reading back for myself especially. listing it would be easier i think :D

1. EXTRA CURRICULAR - I always believed that a great person has a great agenda. and a great agenda is always something that is beyond what is already laid in front of him. pretty sure everyone knows the poem ' the road less traveled by '. And having a year of new responsibility had me placed myself where i never thought id be, and not forgetting, all the peoples i met along the way has shown me the practical approach of the saying. and the downside at this point of which i was able to conclude to myself is that not everything will go as how you planned. YES, not everything works in the real world. you tried so hard in doing something but the world seems to always knock you down just to make you realize , you need to be better. suck in up and move on~


2.CURRICULAR - Obviously learning in the clinical setting is not the same as the past 2 years. nor will it be similar to any practical sessions in other faculty. learning by the means of self urgency. the ultimate form of proper practical learning. at this point i realize, its not how much you know prior, or how well you did in the past years of your life that matters. but how much you put an effort and commit to learn and gain everything that matters. Of course, there are those who settled with just doing average. In the end, the outcome will be the same for everyone. unless you flunked (God forbids) but youll reach the same place , just a bit late. of course, examwise, im willing to say that it is one of the most unfair exam in the world. Some would consider passing is a luck. others might work so had for it but still not pass. as for me. i only hope that passing is the best fate Allah has decided for me.

3. THE FRIENDS - Its quite the sad scene where all the 250 friends who goes to lectures together 2 years ago are now merely faces seen once a week, if youre lucky that is. as how i am eager to talk to each of them, time is always THE one to prevent me from doing so. we all have our own different schedules to follow and places to attend. But i always say to myself, there will be a time after this hecticness ends, that i am able to do so. but never the less, out of sight doesnt mean out of mind, nor do out of prayer.

4. THE LIFE - So it begins. as everyone is getting prep on what they want or have to do in life you start questioning how that statement inflicts on your life. whats it gonna be like for the net five years, or maybe 10 or 20 years from now. along the way what should you dump and on which should you cling and carry on. Others will start questioning too. And unfortunately, some will doubt your action regardless how virtue the intention you prioritize. there will be those who cant digest the fact of why this course is the longest, and why its said to be the toughest. not that im making an excuse for each and every under performance( God forbids) there is. In everything that we do, i realize theres one fact that should be highlighted that hopefully, in a certain way, it may be something to cling on and head towards a better future.

all of our times flies. but to where it flies that differs each and every one of us. and just because you are doing something in your believe, is the right thing, it makes other paths the others took the wrong one. lets leave the judging part to the One and only who can, and leave the efforts to us. 
Towards a better and brighter future. InsyaAllah :)

embracing knowledge for what it is.



learning is a process. a process where we interpret what we received  from our senses regardless of what ever form the origin is. presumably, other people tend to judge us with the stuffs we are SUPPOSED to learn. having that said, we, on the other hand somehow forgot the true nature of learning it self.


its not about what our surrounding shows that defines what we will learn. But rather how we accept our surrounding in a way, it may benefit us in any way, at any given time. processing our thoughts and instincts, only then, we would realize, its only a matter of time when we see how everything may somehow teach us something new, something useful, something we need in the most dire times possible.

hearing is one thing. listening is another. and for that, we should be realizing that, knowledge is a key to survival and does not necessarily means it has to come from a book or a speech from a person who claims, to have a better way of life than you or any other people. knowledge and lessons in life are often more easily absorbed and comprehended when they are more relatable to our own. ( the eyes wont see what the brain doesnt know). and with this, we should be able to see clearly, how learning could actually vary in many ways and its always easier when you could see the silver lining in everything  (perhaps its even more fun!)

open up a book and understand what its trying to let you know. listen up to a speech, and testify to yourself, of which am i supposed to know, and which should i discard. open up to the goods that people do as an example we can replicate for others to also trail on the same track. see the bad examples others do, so you can refrain yourself from doing so, and perhaps, correct others to also refrain from it, and also improve themselves.

and there will be times where you come to a point, where you feel tired just absorbing everything you could. and when that time comes, look back and realize, the reason why you are able to see or do certain things up to this point is because you can while others cant. And with that said, you should realize that Allah has , bigger plans and a greater path for you.



so maybe its good to sometimes, close your eyes, take a deep breath, remind yourself of all these things. and force a smile, know that you are strong. stronger than many others that usually take the easier path. we all heard about the tail of the road less traveled by. and hey look, here you are, citing the poetry of a life you are living in :)


#this post , a tribute to the times when i realized, when i started to learn. its not all about academics, its not all about the grades. sometimes you need to learn how to make those who concern about the academics to also realize theres more than just academic to live with :) but this, still doesnt mean that academic is not important :)




surely, you'll understand dependence when you know the Maker's land  :)

Demi masa , dulu dan kini

22 tahun dan sebulan
Sebulan .... plus plus...

as our age increases, we realize that we've lived a year longer, and also we have shorter time to live, making us wonder, what have we been doing all these while?

along this 22 years of journey, a lot of things had happen. a lot of things learnt. and ill admit, along the way, at some point, i messed up. im pretty sure we all did right? 

nevertheless. let alone our past be a good example of whom we once we're , and whom we shall refrain from being like that, again. and that is why, i shall not delete the posts from my previous years. let it be something to remind me, for we are mere humans who requires explicit reminder to allow ourselves to see the fine line between what is right and what is not.

the things we did back then cant be repent with turning back time, but we can repent it by not doing it again, ever. i was once who i was, but that doesnt mean ill stay that way forever. the best lesson is learnt not from books, but from experience. seeing and reading, may be a way to hopefully learn. but doing mistakes, FORCES us to learn, and REGRET will allow us to remind ourselves, constantly.

but as the time we have the epiphany , we shall see the world will somehow, turn against ourselves. trying to tear us apart. making our journey towards a better individual, as hell as possible. then i came across this,

"selagi anda beriman, selagi itu anda akan dilanda ujian"

its not a test if its not difficult, its not a test if you get through it everytime, the same way. maybe this is just how life is. ill get use to it. Allah is always there with those who needs him. oh well

A YEAR OLDER, A YEAR WISER,
A GENTLE REMINDER, 
THAT LIFE WONT GO ANY EASIER :)

manfaatnya ilmu itu, lebih dari sekadar tahu















orang tua tua selalu berkata

.
banyak orang, banyak ragam.

kadangkala dalam bertegur sapa,
kita selangi dengan pelbagai kisah dunia
bagai penglipur lara petah bersandiwara 
diselitkan juga gurauan senda..

sungguh,
 hasrat di hati hanyalah untuk menceriakan suasana
mengeratkan jalinan mesra
agar bila tiba masanya,
ini menjadi cebisan amal kita,
tatkala berdepan dengan yang Esa

namun aku sedar aku siapa,
hanya manusia biasa 
tidak lebih dari kalian semua,
tidak akan terlepas dari dosa,
 kadangkala,
ia yang tidak dikesan pancaindera.

betul,
kita dapat dengar apa yang kita bahas,
kita dapat lihat apa yang kita buat.
tetapi,
selalu sahaja aku TERkeliru ,
di antara apa yang aku SEDANG lakukan
dan apa yang aku PATUT lakukan

oleh itu
wahai rakan rakan 
jalankanlah peranan kalian 
bila terlihat kesilapan,
ketahuilah,
teguran diperlukan
kritik pun,rasenya, boleh kan?

malangnya
kadang kala dalam kritik itu 
niat hanya untuk menghina
sedangkan apa yang diperukan 
adalah kritikan yang membina
disampaikan dengan cara yang betul,
disampaikan dengan  suasana yang betul,
jangan jadi bendul
dengan mengolotkan istilah 'betul'

ah, 
pedulikan semua!
tegur nasihat komentar dan kritikan.
adalah asam garam kehidupan,
mengalir dalam darah kita.
sebab aku nak kalian tahu
dan aku rasa kalian mesti sependapat dengan aku
tiada diantara kita
yang tidak ingin ke syurga
.

'tidak akan ke syurga seseorang itu berseorangan'
maka sedarlah wahai rakan rakan
sedarlah..
tegurlah
tegurlah
tegurlah
