Don't Underestimate the power of Doa..

Do you believe in Doa?
Doa is said to be Muslim biggest weapon.
When we want something, we normally will talk to Allah through Doa, in faith that Allah will make it happen for us.
After prayers, we pray to Allah  for good health, wealth and success in life. Everything we told Allah in our Doa.
Maybe Allah will make it happen or maybe not.
But are we still keep our believe and faith in Doa when Allah does not granted our Doa?

The true Muslim believe that Allah will always listen and granted His true followers wishes.
However, are we the true followers of Islam?
For whatever reason, my writing is to make sure all of us keep our believe and faith in Doa..
Even we might not be the best followers but Allah is the most forgiving and knowing.
He knows what best for us

I watch this video few days ago and the message remain in my heart and head which I think I should spread it to my readers


in this video, I mesmerize with the power of Doa.
Just imagine, an hopeless old women that pray to Allah to cure her sick grandson, had nothing in term of money and status to make others prioritize her wish. But she keep faith and make Allah granted her wish. Allah send  the doctor right in front of her door. Masya-Allah.. I cried realizing the power of Allah in making things that impossible in human eye come to real.

I experienced this by myself.
I once did feel hopeless when I was terminated from job, not able to get any suitable job despite my excellent academic achievement, and fighting to get sponsors for my studies abroad which I spend more than 2 years working to get the place.
I once feel like a loser when I do have an excellent man stay by my side in whatever bad situation I faced but I cannot convince my mother to accept him. Lot of sad and bad things happen to me but I keep on pray to Allah. Please Allah, you know the best. Don't test me with anything I cannot bear.

Masya-Allah, Allah is the greatest.
Do you know that I am the most luckiest person on Earth.
Long story but at last I manage to get the sponsors for my studies in UK.
This is the opportunity that I most thank Allah for.
Living in UK show me how great Allah can change your sorrow into your happiness.
I am still  in process to convince my mother. But I not lose hope in the power of Doa

So my readers, keep your believe in Allah
Allah might not granted your wish now. But maybe in future. Or maybe Allah gives you something better.
Never lose hope on Allah.

Maybe you think that you are not as lucky as me
Maybe you envy me
Maybe you think that I am just showing off all my achievement.

But believe me,
You are free to have all of the negative thinking.
But keep your faith in Doa.
Allah will listen. Trust me.


Regards from the one that will never lose hope,
Zuliana..;)

Islamic Perspective on Jihaad


I being called to watch the full movie after watching some part of the movie (video above)
The movie carry lot of message that try to make the viewer think on what is actually happened in the world today.

This is my simple view on the movie.
Its about a group of people originally from Pakistan/Afghanistan plan for several attack in America to show their rebel on what happened to their country. People always view Islam and Muslim as terrorist and these group of people try to explain the reason behind their actions. Their families and friends being killed by the US army during the invasion in Iraq,Afghanistan. They losing their loved one,their belonging and by planning attack in America, they try to make the government and the people of America understand their suffer by doing the same. These people willing to sacrifice their life and use the word "jihaad" to moralize their actions.

I cry a lot after watching this movie. I feel like I understand their suffer and lost. It is easy for us to talk as we are not the one who losing our lost ones. But I do really believe that killing others is not the solution for this problem. And the main point is ISLAM IS NOT ABOUT GIVING CONSENT FOR MUSLIM TO KILL OTHERS IN THE WORD OF JIHAD.

Depend our definition on terrorism. People said the action of Islamic extremist doing suicide bombing, planning the attack on public place is the action of terrorism. And people also said the action of military and army invasion in Islamic state is also the act of terrorism as thousand of innocent people being killed. IN BOTH VIEW, INNOCENT PEOPLE AND CIVILIANS WILL ALWAYS BE THE VICTIM. And why these people should bear the feeling of fear despite of they are not the one who planning to kill others. Innocent people is just ordinary people who run their life thinking about what they will eat for lunch,make their parents and family happy and again these innocent people DO NOT HAVE BAD INTENTION TO OTHERS.

Let me get you on what is the meaning of Jihad in my perspective. Jihad is the Arabic word means struggle. It is a fight to the sake of God which is Allah S.W.T.There are 4 level of Jihad which include Jihad against oneself, Jihad by being vocal, Jihad by using action and lastly Jihad by using sword.

Prophet Muhammad once said after the return from battle
" We have returned from the lesser jihad(going into battle) to the greater jihad(the struggle of the soul)"

From the definition, the struggle of the soul is bigger jihad compared to going into battle. You yourself struggle to commit the best to please Allah by doing what is being asked (solat, hajj, and etc) and leaving anything Allah forbid (include making harm in the world). There is always misconception Muslim themselves in term of only a person that die in war, that person become a martyr.This idea is not 100 percent correct as the truth is ANYONE DOING ANYTHING FOR THE SAKE OF ALLAH AND IS KILLED BECOMES A MARTYR. This could be anything such as giving birth or even die in a car crash. You and Allah know your intention best.

Islam is a peace religion. I am not sure either other religion provide the guideline in order for their army to follow during the war. But Islam do have the rule every Muslim army must obey. 8 simple rules:-

1) Do not commit treachery
2)Do not deviate from the right path
3)Do not mutilate dead bodies
4) Do not kill children
5) Do not kill women
6) Do not kill aged man
7) Do not harm or burn trees
8) Do not destroy building

I cannot see the relevant of killing innocent people in these guideline set up by Islamic teaching. Every life is precious and in  the Hereafter,you will be judged for every single action you take.

Muslims are terrorist. My brain again cannot digest on these word. How a specific group of people attack another group of people it is labelled as "hate crime" but when a Muslim open fire on anybody it is quickly regarded as "terrorism". It is unfair to judge terrorism based on the religion just due to certain group of people believe they do what the religion asked (even sometimes they just misunderstood it), bring harm and the entire population being judged. Many political dictators and officials or extremist groups use the name of Islam as a strategy to gain followers and attention when many of their practices totally go against the true basis of Islam.

Similar case happen in in Myanmar. My friend do some research on ethic cleansing happen in Myanmar as they try to cleansing Rohingya ethnic by the Hindu's extremist. I am sure some of you are not even aware on this issue, right? Thousand of Muslim being killed in Myanmar but pity them as no media coverage on them. The world attention is not as big as the 9/11 tragedy. Why? Because they are just Muslims.Oh my, am I being racist now? Please do not misunderstood me. I am  just triggering the facts.

ISLAM PROHIBIT TERRORISM.  There is no where in Islam, whether it be in the Quran or hadith that promote the killing of innocent people.

"Do not fight except in self-defense and even in doing so, do not go beyond defense"
"If they seek peace, then you seek peace"

My fellow readers, believe me that Islam is a way of life. It promote peace and provide guideline to find peace and tranquility in life. I do carry the same feeling with my other Muslim when we often being viewed suspiciously by friends and people from other religion. Sometimes I feel angry and being treated unfair. But believe me, Allah knows the best. Share the love with them and please do not ever spread hate. Educate others on the true Islamic value and try our level best to be a better Muslim.

I seek for forgiveness on behalf my fellow Muslim on our incapability to show the world on the real Islamic teaching. Islam is such a perfect religion and the lack is on our part. Do not give assumption or judgement on the bad action done by some of your Muslims friend as sometimes they do mistake and always even trying to be a better Muslim.

Spread the peace and love,

Mencari makanan halal

Makanan halal.. antara isu yang sering diketengahkan oleh Muslim apabila nak datang non-Islamic country
Sememangnya mencari makanan halal itu sangat penting kerana dari makanan itulah menjadi darah daging kita.
Namun,jangan rumitkan Islam sebagai penyebab anda tak boleh nak makan banyak benda sedangkan Islam sebenarnya agama yang universal.
yup, I pun rasa benda yang sama pada mulanya..
tapi bila lama-lama di sini, rasanya isu ni makin dapat diatasi..
Tinggallah di mana sahaja di muka bumi Allah, pasti ada rezeki dari Allah.
Kalau anda memilih bab makanan, so susahlah sikit nak hidup..


Wahai sekalian manusia! Makanlah dari apa yang ada di bumi yang halal lagi baik, dan janganlah kamu ikut jejak langkah Syaitan; kerana sesungguhnya Syaitan itu ialah musuh yang terang nyata bagi kamu.
(al-Baqarah: 168)

Gambar sekadar hiasan
Membuktikan makanan bukan isu besar di negara bukan Islam..:P
Sebelah kiri merupakan zaman bekerja (2013) dan sebelah kanan ialah zaman belajar di UK (2014)
Dikhabarkan oleh kaum kerabat bahawa sekarang lebih berisi dari dulu.
1) Jadi vegetarian
Salah satu solution bila anda tinggal/travel di negara bukan Islam ialah dengan jadi vegetarian. Sememangnya susah bagi mereka yang tak gemarkan sayur-sayuran. Meat or chicken is not the main option here sebab kita ragui cara sembelihan ayam dan daging disini. Kemungkinan tidak halal dan to play save choose the menu for vegetarian.Frankly speaking, not bad to be a vegetarian here. Anda boleh makan apa sahaja spt susu, cheese, tomato, salad yang mana disini sangat segar dan juga mengenyangkan

2) Makan seafood
Sebenarnya susah nak jumpa seafood disini tapi ini merupakan option bagi mereka yang mencari-cari makanan halal. Ketam,sotong,udang,ikan dan sbgnya sememangnya halal dimakan. Cubalah memasak menu berasaskan seafood sepanjang anda tinggal di luar negara

3) Arab/Yaman or Indian Restaurant
Kebanyakkan restoren yang disediakan oleh mereka menyediakan makanan halal, Disinilah tempat untuk anda ubat rasa rindu pada ayam mahupun daging dengan harga yang berpatutan. Sepanjang di UK tiada masalah untuk temui makanan halal lebih-lebih lagi sepanjang travel di Rusholme,Manchester..Sheffield pun not bad tapi taklah sebahagia anda di Rusholme.

3 pilihan diatas merupakan contoh yang saya amalkan. Alhamdullillah setakat ni memang cukup makan.Jangan takut untuk travel semata-mata risau tiada makanan. Insyaallah..di mana-mana sahaja ada makanan..:)


Solat di negara bukan Islam

Solat merupakan rukun islam ke-2 dan tidak harus dipandang ringan oleh seorang Muslim
Secara am-nya, kebanyakan Muslim yang baru tiba di negara yang ditadbir oleh bukan Islam mengalami masalah untuk mengerjakan solat
Nak cari tempat untuk solat memang susah
Jangan harap anda akan jumpa masjid/surau/prayer room semudah anda di Malaysia atau Indonesia.

Perkara biasa.. I feel that during my early stage living in UK for my studies
So my suggestion basically lebih kepada keadaan di UK (i still tak travel to other countries selain UK, so tak sure suasana dia macam mana. But I think kat mana-mana pun applicable..Insyaallah)
Buat masa sekarang, after nearly 4 months at UK, I found some solutions that might able to help my fellow Muslim's friends.
Hadith nabi ada menyebut:-

“All the earth is a mosque except for graveyards and bathrooms.” (Narrated by al-Tirmidhi, al-Salaah, 291; classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh Sunan al-Tirmidhi, 262).


Hadis ini menerangkan bahawa kesemua tempat di bumi adalah Masjid selain kubur dan tandas.

First of all, make sure you guys dah ambek air sembahyang dekat toilet.
In UK mostly you boleh ambek air sembahyang dekat singki.
Agak mencabar time nak basuh kaki sebab singki mereka banyak yang tinggi
Lagi mencabar bila ada makcik/akak cleaner tengah cuci tandas
Sebabnya dah macam norm meraka untuk pastikan lantai toilet tidak basah.
So, bila anda ambil air sembahyang, sometimes air akan menitik ke lantai.
Cuba minimakan air yang menitik ke lantai.
Tebalkan muka anda bila dipandang oleh mereka dan pengguna tandas yang lain..:P

Antara tempat-tempat yang boleh dijadikan ruang solat.

1) Fitting room
Kebanyakan pasaraya besar seperti PRIMARK, NEXT etc ada menyediakan ruangan untuk pelanggan mereka mencuba pakaian. Fitting room is my best shot. Anda boleh pretend to try some cloth and gunakan ruang terbabit untuk solat. Make sure u bring selendang,kain,or use your sweater untuk dijadikan sejadah.Cuma yang tak bestnya, fitting room depa ni jarang yang boleh kunci. Kebanyakannya hanya tutup dengan kain. Kekadang rasa macam tak kusyuk nak solat sbb risau orang akan selak kain tu. But no worries. Mula-mula je rasa macam tu. Pedulikan apa orang nak cakap, janji kita boleh tunaikan kewajipan kita.

2) Street
Tepi jalan juga merupakan tempat yang boleh target in case memang takde tempat lain nak solat. Seeloknya jangan ditengah-tengah jalan atau laluan orang ramai. Carilah tempat-tempat yang tidak menghalang jalan orang. Bentangkan kain/kot anda dan solatlah dengan tenang. In my experience, UK sangat open bila nampak Muslim solat. They tend to ignore sebab tahu kita tengah solat.

3) Public facilities like Cinema
Don't afraid to ask. I once tengok wayang dkt Odeon Cinema and ask them whether they have place to pray. Some of them quite open and willing to help.Don't expect tempat tu besar sebab sometimes diaorang bagi meeting room diaorang untuk kita guna.

4) Train/Bus and Flight
Lengkapkan ilmu untuk solat semasa dalam kenderaan. Ketika di UK, anda akan mengalami kejutan dengan waktu solat mereka yang sangat singkat berbanding Malaysia. Jika di Malaysia gap antara Asar ke Maghrib boleh capai 3 jam, di UK, kemungkinan besar gap hanya sejam. Sometimes, waktu solat anda ialah waktu anda sedang menggunakan kenderaan ni.

5)Nursing room/Baby Changing room
Baby changing room merupakan tempat untuk ibu-ibu menukar lampin bayi mereka. Gunakan kain/sweater anda sebagai sejadah.baby changing ni kebanyakkkannya diasingkan dari toilet. Namun ada keraguan kerana sometimes ada sesetengah changing room menyediakan tempat untuk kids buang air. I cuba dapatkan keterangan dari website http://islamqa.info/en/14506 yang mana keterangan seperti dibawah:-

 “Bathroom” refers to every place that is used for the purpose of relieving oneself; it is not permissible to pray in any such place. This room on the edge of which there is a toilet is not considered to be a bathroom so long as there is a barrier between it and the bathroom, with a wall and door etc. In this case prayer in that room is valid, because the prohibition on praying in bathrooms is because they are usually naajis (impure), and this room is not like that. And Allaah knows best. 


To sum up, solatlah walau dimana sahaja anda berada. In case you have another suggestion, feel free to drop me the comment. Jangan sesekali tinggal solat even sesusah mana pun kita rasa. Cuba usahakan untuk solat k...;)
