daily du'a

Assalamualaikum and hi!

Someone share with me this du'a. *in the midst of exam fever. cough cough*

Tampal sini dulu, hafal and hadam and ajar kawan-kawan, kakak-kakak, abang-abang, anak-anak *cough cough*

*not feeling well lately. self diagnose: exam fever a.k.a kifarah dosa. banyak sangat dosanya. So, dear myself, sila amalkan doa ni. Just do it!*

Allahumma ati nafsi taqwaha, wa zakkiha anta khairu man zakkaha, anta waliyyuha wa maulaha

"Ya Allah, kurniakanlah padaku diriku taqwa dan bersihkan diriku ini kerana Engkaulah sebaik-baik yang membersihkan. Ya Allah, Engkaulah pemiliknya."
"O Allah! Grant me the sense of piety and purify my soul as You are the Best to purify it. You are its Guardian and its Protecting Friend."

Full du'a from this hadith --> Zaid bin Arqam (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:

The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) would supplicate: "Allahumma inni a'udhu bika minal-'ajzi wal-kasali, wal-bukhli wal-harami, wa 'adhabil-qabri. Allahumma ati nafsi taqwaha, wa zakkiha Anta khairu man zakkaha, Anta waliyyuha wa maulaha. Allahumma inni a'udhu bika min 'ilmin la yanfau', wa min qalbin la yakhsha'u, wa min nafsin la tashba'u, wa min da'watin la yustajabu laha'

[O Allah! I seek refuge in You from the inability (to do good), indolence, cowardice, miserliness, decrepitude and torment of the grave. O Allah! Grant me the sense of piety and purify my soul as You are the Best to purify it. You are its Guardian and its Protecting Friend. O Allah! I seek refuge in You from the knowledge which is not beneficial, and from a heart which does not fear (You), and from desire which is not satisfied, and from prayer which is not answered]."

“Ya Allah, aku berlindung kepada-Mu dari kelemahan, sifat malas, penakut, sifat bakhil, kerentanan, dan siksa kubur. Ya Allah, berikanlah ketakwaan kepada jiwaku, dan sucikanlah ia, Engkaulah penolong dan pelindungnya. Ya Allah, aku berlindung kepada-Mu dari ilmu yang tidak bermanfaat, hati yang tidak khusyuk, jiwa yang tidak pernah puas dan doa yang tidak di kabulkan.” (HR. Muslim).

he is a neighbor, a surgeon, a teacher, and a MUSLIM!

Assalamualaikum wbt and Hi!

This is based on a true story.

It was two weeks ago when the rumor went wild in the hospital saying a doctor had been suddenly admitted to ICU. ok. fine, a gossip. I did ignore it. *whatever, i have lots of things to do* huhu.

On the next day, I found out who was the doctor, he was OUR SURGEON who was a TUTOR, who lives just the next building to mine and above all that he is A MUSLIM.

all rightttttt. so, what should i do next? hurm. we are very familiar with ICU. well this is a small hospital though. and we did go in and out ICU to see patients. but this time the patient was OUR OWN SURGEON!

I was clueless. He is somewhat....hurm... special to us... or maybe to me? huhu.

Let me tell you a little bit about him.

  1. he was a devout Muslim why i said so? he was the one who ask about Maryam during tutorial *i did write about him in my previous post.*
  2. He was the one who said its ok to have azan during his tutorial. *well, i forgot to put my phone in silent mode during one of his tutorial. huhu*
  3. he was a surgeon, a senior registrar.
  4. there were number of times we went to hospital together *cough. no deep meaning ok* he was nice though. he would let me go first and not like what you thinking ok. not side by side or whatsoever.
  5. he lives alone, so he gave us tutorial up until late! see how passionate he is in teaching
  6. during tutorial, he would choose not to touch us, the muslims students, to demonstrate, instead he choose the non-muslims.
  7. he was a happy go lucky surgeon
and list goes on. he was very kind and etc2. too many positive things about him.

Lets continue with the story. He was admitted to ICU. *he was fine few days before, he just complained of stomachache. His friends offer to check him in ED. but it turned it was something serious* so, my partner decided to pay him a visit to ask about his history in other words clerk him. huhu. and I was like erk ok. hence, off we go! but unfortunately the nurses didn't allow us even to read his chart. fair enough. He is a doctor in this hospital though.

i felt sooo uneasy. The intention was not right at all! visit him to clerk him? what??! at first, i thought it was ok. nothing wrong to learn and he is a doctor and he know we need to study etc2 but when i went home, i think again, this wasn't  right at all. I ask few other friends, seniors, my brother, my parents.


some say no, because of privacy. well, if you want to clerk him, erk, of course he would understand because you want to learn but would you not have sensitivity at all, dear myself?????????!!!

a self reminder. a patient is a human being too. Treat them like human, not a robot. They have feelings.

this was my not-so-lil-brother's response

"well, visiting orang sakit is sunnah anyway" *dush*

and this was the best answer i got from my parents.

" he is a Muslim, a teacher, and a neighbor. You have LOTS of reason why you HAVE TO visit him. NOT to clerk him but to make du'a for him. did you know about this hadis?:

"Sesungguhnya Allah SWT berkata pada hari kiamat: Wahai anak Adam! Aku telah sakit namun kamu tidak menjengukKu. Anak Adam bertanya: "Bagaimanakah aku menjengukMu karena Engkau adalah Tuhan semesta alam". Allah menegaskan: Tidakkah engkau mengetahui bahawa hambaKu fulan sedang sakit namun engkau tidak menjenguknya, Seandainya engkau menjenguknya niscaya engkau akan mendapatkan Aku padanya…". (HR Muslim)

so, do visit him! bring a card or anything. and don't stay long. just to tell him you make du'a for him. ok, dear ***?"

on the very next day, I asked my partner to visit him and we brought a card. In the ICU, we were too shy to see him since the previous day episode. hehe. *kena halau dengan nurse, and I bet he can see us kena halau. hahha* hence, we just gave the card to the nurse to give it to him. *need more courage to face him. hehe*

few days later, i heard he had been transferred. not sure to which hospital. but i prayed that he will have a speedy recovery ameen. *will you make du'a for him too? :)*

a self reflection - it is all about INTENTION.whatever you do, do it with a right intention.

Dari Abi Hurairah, Ia berkata: Telah bersabda Rosulullah shalallahu’alayhi wa sallam : “Haq Muslim atas Muslim itu enam: Apabila engkau bertemu dia, hendaklah engkau beri salam kepadanya; dan apabila ia undang-mu, hendaklah engkau perkenankan-dia; dan apabila ia minta nasihat, hendaklah engkau nasihati-dia; dan apabila ia bersin lalu berkata Alhamdulillah, hendaklah engkau do’akan dia; dan apabila ia sakit, hendaklah engkau melawat dia; dan apabila ia mati, hendaklah engakau turut (jenazah)-nya.” (Riwayat Muslim)

don't just write and read, but DO!

p/s exam in less than 2 weeks! ya Allah, hanya kepadaMu aku berharap. >.< just a little bit more, dear myself. *off to books*
