where were we? oh. day two of TOF. ok. let's continue. :)
Dec 25th, 2011
since the former day ended unpleasantly for us the three sisters, we did our best to make the next day better. :) expecially i myself because i.. i was like the planner. hu. still, we knew what Allah's fixed for us would be the best. :) have faith.
about 7.30 a.m., we're ready to go down. i'd arranged something with a teacher that used to be teaching us generally, me to be specific. mlmh Zantinita. :) it's been quite a time i didn't chat with her, exchange news with her... :) i keep updating about her thru her blog. :) i do stalk people i love. ok? ha. ha. ok.
therefore, after done the payment thingy with AI, and shake-hand-and-hug with her, her mom, sister and others, we went down. just few seconds later, our mlmh arrived. :) with her Kenari. she brought us to which Presint, i don't remember, but, there's a pool there. :) she treated us. XD so, i chose hot cook (read: masakan panas) XD Yiba took soto, Lala took moi (nasi air? bubur?), i took lontong. we had a good conversation. thinking backwardly about the conversation, i felt i'm a grown-up girl. :D we talked about working world... working sectors; govt & private... our mlmh had experienced both sectors.. and i'm in training with govt sect and my elder sis and younger
sis are in private sect training. ^__^ it also realized me how fast time passed... urm. maybe not about the speed of time passing over me, but time has passed thru a long path... just enough for us to have an adult conversation. :) one more but, no marriage topic. :)
then, mlmh sent us to PICC with another promise to have lunch together if there's nothing up.
we went straight to the workshop with Dr. Har. :) i wasn't enthusiasistic, b'coz i think that i'd attended her talk once in the year before... he. that proud me. i did my best to enjoy the talk! :) alhamdulillah, i did it!
there're numbers of question in me answered too! :) Women in the eyes of God; where do they stand?
dr. Har said, stay tall and proud,
Whoever works righteousness, man or woman, and has Faith, verily, to him will We give a new Life, a life that is good and pure and We will bestow on such their reward according to the best of their actions.(The Bee, 16:97)
we've SPIRITUAL EQUALITY
And their Lord hath accepted of them, and answered them: "Never will I suffer to be lost the work of any of you, be he male or female: Ye are members, one of another: Those who have left their homes, or been driven out therefrom, or suffered harm in My Cause, or fought or been slain,- verily, I will blot out from them their iniquities, and admit them into Gardens with rivers flowing beneath;- A reward from the presence of Allah, and from His presence is the best of rewards."(The Family of 'Imran, 3:195)
within the sphere of life; seeking knowledge and partners,
And among His Signs is this, that He created for you mates from among yourselves, that ye may dwell in tranquillity with them, and He has put love and mercy between your (hearts): verily in that are Signs for those who reflect.(The Romans, 30:21)
we're DIFFERENT yet EQUAL but SPECIAL
By (the mystery of) the creation of male and female;- Verily, (the ends) ye strive for are diverse.(The Night, 92:3-4)
we; WOMEN.. ok.. just in case u don't feel u're a woman, yet ladies. *LOL* anything.. girl.. female... we're important! we're in the MDG (Millenium Development Goals)!! we're in the 5th place. what say you? ;) ok. that MDG especially for mothers, it's related to maternity. XD u do wanna be a mother, am i right? he. ok. u're not if u're a male. =.=
sacred position of mothers. :)
women in the eyes of men... how men look at women? it depends on how the women themselves view themselves. :) here's the analogy of durian and cucumber.. ok.. i dun really remember 'bout this analogy. XD ostrich attitude. i forgot bout this three. u may google it.
our baseline is 165 if it's interpreted based on ESQ model. the ego should be lowering, and the izzah should be enhancing. :)
women are like the sun... why? because sun is one of energy sources. :)
sakinah = mawaddah + rahmahafter dr. har's slot, we went up to the plenary hall. Dr. Maszlee Malik was on the stage. i like his English speech. :D it doesn't sound too Malaysian. kui. okayy~ it's about Unity in Diversity. i didn't really jot down something during his speech since when i got to be in the hall, it's already half of his lecture. :)
afterwards, we'd Boona Mohammed's performance. hmm.. then Sh. Navaid Aziz's lecture again. his topic was Our Youth the Foundations of an Examplary Community. there're number of things in a list... and in his page,
Here are 10 ten topics you should discuss with your potential spouse before you get married. Keep in mind that you are looking for compatibility and not a direct replica of yourself (Seriously, what fun would that be? :P). 1- Religion, 2- Finances, 3- Family, 4- Education, 5- Kids, 6- Employment, 7- The future, 8- The past, 9- Habits and hobbies, 10- Health. Also please read the link below.
*ok. frankly speaking i'd lost my interest to share... but i will finish this draft till the end!! o yeah! o yeah!
ok. finance. earn money... don't keep only for yourself!!! spend them in the way of Allah! ;)
ok. Sh. Hussein Yee again after that. hmm... i didn't really focus. ok. i just can't recall. :( but then, there's 'bout answering salam... :) and
la dhirar wa la dhirar..next, Dr. Bilal Philips; Education for Life, not for Living. do u understand? u're studying ICT is not because u want to really earn money from it. do u get it? :D
seeking knowledge is religious obligation. make-up our mind now!
Proclaim! (or read!) in the name of thy Lord and Cherisher, Who created- Created man, out of a (mere) clot of congealed blood: Proclaim! And thy Lord is Most Bountiful,- He Who taught (the use of) the pen, -Taught man that which he knew not.(The Clot, 96:1-5)
they're useless knowledge too. hm... :) and his words;
gynecology; men don't go!
engineering; women don't go!
last part; goal of education is for???
next; Sh. Alaa El-Sayed with his topic; Exemplary Women of the Past.
love them for the sake of Allah! :) ; u'll be with who you love.
power of love, i would say. :D
this lecture, haha. men and women were smashed!! why? ok. look at Khadijah. when Rasulullah p.b.u.h (s.a.w) received the first wahy from Allah via Jibril... he went home.. there, Khadijah comforted him. relate to our life,
women (Wives), does your husband run to you or run away from you?then,
fathers were asked... do your children run to you or run away from you?
next; Sh. Yahya Ibrahim. :) the title was Allah's Beloved.
three main points;
make a change
connect with Allah
then, dr. Tawfiwue Chowdhury with the topic, Allah in the Hearts, World in the Hands + The Balanced Nation (wasato?)
Ye are the best of peoples, evolved for mankind, enjoining what is right, forbidding what is wrong, and believing in Allah. If only the People of the Book had faith, it were best for them: among them are some who have faith, but most of them are perverted transgressors.(The Family of 'Imran, 3:110)
