5 Hadis Untuk Peringatan Sekeluarga

Alhamdulillah, masih diberi rezeki berada di muka bumi ni pagi ni. Hari ni saya nak kongsikan 5 hadis untuk peringatan sekeluarga yang boleh diamalkan dan diingatkan kepada satu sama lain di dalam keluarga. Setiap kebaikan adalah sedekah (Hadis Riwayat Bukhari dan Muslim) Hadis ini bagi saya sangat indah sekali kerana ianya asas kepada kita untuk mengingatkan diri dan ahli keluarga untuk sentiasa berbuat baik kerana setiap kebaikan itu adalah sedekah dan insyaAllah, Allah menyukai perkara yang baik-baik. Malu adalah sebahagian daripada iman (Hadis Riwayat Bukhari dan Muslim) Di zaman sosial media ini, malu adalah satu perkara yang semakin hilang dan ianya amat merisaukan. Malu bersifat subjektif dan mempunyai definisi dan pemahaman berbeza mengikut setiap orang. Namun, secara asasnya, dengan adanya sifat…

Be There Your Family Members

Small matters count irregardless how minute they are in our eyes. How many of you today remember the last time you praised your family member? When was the last time you thank your partner? When was the last time your child admire you in front of the mirror? When was the last time someone asks for your presence? I think, we have reached into a life time where social approval becomes very important to feed self-confidence of many people yet again, we also become its victim whenever it becomes unmanageable. In a family institution context, I believe there is one reason leading to this: lack of family support. We all achieve new thing everyday even for a small matter as…

Read to Write

Often times I receive simple yet difficult to make understand question – how to improve language proficiency? My answer never changed over time. Read. Read to write. Read to improve your grammar. Read to improve your speaking skills. My advice may have fallen into many deaf ears but to some who have listened and taken actions, produced results. To be where I am today, to stand in front of more than thousands of students, I did not do this by just passing my TESL degree alone. Even behind the TESL degree, it had compiled a long list of reading materials and countless hours spent on reading and checking words in the dictionary. To learn a language, dictionary must be your first best…

Mengundi: Why Are They At Home?

I can choose to write the word mengundi (voting/ poling) in English, but I cannot resist the word from the thoughts of our children or the education system in Malaysia. Although politics and education never make the best mixture, they are, however, inseparable from one another. Education certainly shapes the politics. Politics too, somehow affects education. Question is, on hari mengundi, why are they still a lot of the eligible youngsters at home? Why are they not doing their responsibility? Firstly, we have to make the children understand how poling is their responsibility. This awareness is the core factor that will move them to go out to drop their poling paper into the poling box. Like everything that comes through poling, every single…

Book Review: Who Moved My Cheese by Dr Spencer Johnson

I first found  Who Moved My Cheese by Dr Spencer Johnson when I was an undergraduate. For a young girl at that time, I believe this book shaped my perspectives about life a lot. If you are seeking for an external force to make progress in life, this is the book you should read. Instead, I would suggest you expose this book to your younger family members as early as you can. The language is simple yet impactful. In certain part, the book to me was cheeky when it threatened me to take the opportunities that I do not take action on. It makes you want to read till the last page as even reading it will make you move forward,…
