ONE. Just got back from Gamassah, Dumyat. It reminds me of a very much dead version of Port Dickson. The water was ugly, sad to say. Literally, there were hundreds of empty apartments ready to be rented. So imagine a town designed to occupy 10 k people, but with only a mere 100 of those still alive; maybe a zombie apocalypse massacred the rest? I don't know LOL.
Yet we did have the time of our lives :)
By the way, to those ambitious film director-to-be, Gamassah is a perfect place to shoot a movie about apocalypse, war or of horror genre.
"Hidayah itu milik Allah. Dia akan berikan hidayah kepada sesiapa yang dikehendaki-Nya,".
TWO. A well known fact, but barely understood by many. Maybe the degree of understanding something differs? Yes, obviously. Impossible that is to find 100 people with the same idea. How we are raised roughly defines what we are today, and to speak about that took a whole other post LOL.
From what I understand, the above fact means that we have no power whatsoever to push our ideology/level of understanding onto other people. As simple as the professor cannot shove the whole chapters in Guyton and Hall's Textbook of Physiology onto us in one day, it goes the same with everything else.
So when you see....maksiat (whatever) in front of you, should you do something? Yes, of course, according to the three steps proposed by the Prophet p.b.u.h. When you see someone wearing a very 'transparent' dress, you shall NEVER EVER take a blanket out of your bag (if you are that passionate about 'membanteras maksiat' haha) and cover her up. That would be a huge insult to her, to anyone for that matter, regardless of his/her wrongdoings.
The point is, appropriate measures need to be taken for a better, long-lasting outcome. Well , this is according to my logic anyway, based from what I understand from school etc. Feel free to contradict me.
Quoting from this ridiculously childish but brilliant friend, ' Iman itu terbukti melalui tiga perkara, pertama melalui hati, kedua melalui lidah (kata-kata), dan ketiga melalui perbuatan (amal). Kalau tak cukup salah satu, dekat mana iman kita?'
That hilarious bastard HAHA.
