I'm bored, and of course tired, I have been sitting in front of the laptop for these few days, trying to sort out the LR, and man, I've became fatter. Let's figure out how to answer the above questions, shall we, and beat me, I don't really listen to the musics that much. These will be pretty biased answers then, but what the heck, it's my answer for the day. It may change in the due course, but let that be another mysterious that could be solved in the future.

1 -Childhood? We don't have a radio, hence, we don't listen to any music at all. But one forbidden song in my high school is Isabella. Figure.

2- Whoa. Nah.

3 - Tombo Ati by Opick. Dad develops his love for this song, and asks me to play it repeatedly. He even jots down the lyric, and shows it to his other javarian friends. That's maybe the last song that we enjoy together.

4 - Preclude and Nostalgia by Yanni. It's like to be bathed in the sunlight.

5 - At this moment? Bil Nabil Huda. I'm not into nasyid. Imagine my surprise when I know this song is sang by a Malay group. Nice.

6 - Lots. Deliver Us by Ofra Haza. I used to drive them crazy by playing this song repeatedly day after day. In their house.

7- Past summer? I spent it in Malaysia. I can't remember any songs that can remind me of the sweet scent of summer. Ehm, let me see, Ketika Cinta Bertasbih? Just go along with Kam and sing it with all of our pretty hearts!

8 - First Love? Whoa. Can't remember. The selfish of me never even let me to fall in love too deeply. Fleetingly? Maybe. Sad Love Story by Kim Hee Sun.

9 - Hopeful? It must be the Deliver Us. I am touched by this song to the core. It's like pleading to God with all of your might. Owh, can I add another one? When You Believe.

10 - Lots. Flying Without Wings by Westlife. Firework by Katy Perry. It feels like I'm flying, playing hide and seek with the fairies above the clouds. Watching the golden sunset, and waving good bye to the beautiful moon.

11 - Reflection in Mulan. I love, love, love this movie. You defeat the Hun, girl. Wow.

12 - A Sad Memory by Yiruma. I was bloghopping, then tara, the song comes out out of no where, just like that. It reminds me of the exquisite twilight full of stars.

13 - A former friend? Is that mean that she's dead? No. No no no no.

14 - Whoa. No.

15 - Fall Again by Glenn Lewis, even though I don't know the full lyric. That makes me fall in love over and over again with a song.

16 - Cry? Lots and lots and lots. By Yanni, for example, Yiruma, PeterPan, Mike Mohede, Yuni Shara. You get the idea.

17 - Buttons and Nobody. Hahaha. I couldn't and wouldn't dance.

18 - Love but rarely listen to. Love? And rarely? This question is misleading, ladies and gentlemen. Never impose any misleading question to anyone, ever. Let's see, nahhhh, when I love a song, I listen to it repetitively. Positive.

19 - Irrelevant. I don't have ipod.

20 - Irrelevant. I don't have ipod.

21 - Lots and lots and lots. Take this - Lost Without You, Delta Goodrem.

22 - Hahaha. No.

23 - Lots. Current music that suits for current generation. My brains feel like exploding poops whenever I hear this kind of crap music. Another type of music is rock. Basically songs that the singers scream and rap, not sing.

24 - Owh? Poco-poco. :). Sometimes we use this excuse to exercise. LOL.

25 - All day long? Nah. I'm not that patience. Or sane.

Goodness me, I feel like crying and wailing, long and loud, until you hear. Alas, I couldn't go to the meeting with the puffy eyes, could I.


Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim,


Allahumma Solli A'la Saiyidna Muhamad, Waa'la aa'li Saiyidna Muhamad.

Sana sini orang membicarakan tentang majlis maulud nabi. Majlis yang mengagungkan hari kelahiran manusia paling agung yang pernah diciptakan oleh Allah Rabbul Izzati. Ada yang berkata ini bid'ah, ngga perlu diadakan, ada jua yang membantah, ini bid'ah hasanah, apa salahnya, segala perbuatan yang membawa kebaikan seharusnya digalakkan.

Ada jua yang berkata dengan kejinya, alah, buat sahaja majlis, tapi ada terapan sunnah Rasulullah dalam diri? (Wah, lebih kurang lah gitu bahasa kasarnya. Ampun dipinta, ngga pandai menulis).

Terus terang saya ingin bertanya, mengapa isu tentang majlis maulud nabi ini diperbesar-besarkan, walhal banyak lagi majlis-majlis yang mengandungi kemungkaran tidak dihalang? Contoh paling besar, sambutan Sure Heboh, Jom Heboh, Apa Heboh?

It's hard for me to write in good malay, let's try in English, even though the results are probably the same. For those who believe that this majlis maulud nabi wouldn't generate the desired impact, well, let's leave the impact thingy to Robbul-Izzati, shall we. Does He say in Al-Quran:

Maka sesiapa yang Allah kehendaki untuk memberi hidayah petunjuk kepadanya, nescaya Ia melapangkan dadanya (membuka hatinya) untuk menerima Islam; dan sesiapa yang Allah kehendaki untuk menyesatkannya, nescaya Ia menjadikan dadanya sesak sempit sesempit-sempitnya, seolah-olah ia sedang mendaki naik ke langit (dengan susah payahnya). Demikianlah Allah menimpakan azab kepada orang-orang tidak beriman (Al An-Am: 25).

Our main and the only purpose of being is to worship Allah swt. Who are we to slander this good majlis, and condem who believe in its goodness? Even though the participants may not benefited from it, or may be they don't follow the sunnah, or may waste money and time for hosting this majlis, masyaAllah, how could you have these kinds of thinking? It's bad presumption, and it comes from sick hearts. Allah swt has reminded us in Al-Hujuraat (12):

Hai orang-orang yang beriman! Jauhilah kebanyakan dari prasangka, sesungguhnya sebhagaian dari prasangka itu adalah dosa, dan janganlah kamu mencari-cari kesalahan orang lain dan janganlah sebahagian kamu mengumpat sebahagian yang lain. Sukakah salah seorang di antara kamu memakan daging saudaranya yang sudah mati? Maka tentulah kamu merasa jijik kepadanya. Dan bertaqwalah kamu kepada Allah. Sesungguhnya Allah Maha Penerima taubat lagi Maha Penyayang.

Be like Habibana 'Ali Zain Al-'Abideen ibn 'Abd A-Rahman Al-Jifri, who offers his prayers in one of the majlis:

Aku mohon kepada Allah swt agar hidupkan kita dengan makna ini (cinta kepada Rasulullah saw), Ya Allah, hidupkanlah makna hubungan dengan Nabi Muhamad saw di dalam jiwa kami. Gerakkanlah dalam diri kami dengan semangat ini, berkatilah mereka yang telah menjayakan program yang baik ini, berikanlah keberkatan kepada mereka yang diundang, dan satukanlah kami dengan orang yang Engkau cintai dan redha, dengan rahmat-Mu , wahai Tuhan yang Maha Pengasih lagi Penyayang. Dan segala puji bagi Allah, Tuhan Sekalian Alam.

Let's offer prayers, instead of condemning, :)
