Menunaikan Haji

Kaabah

Kaabah (http://americanbedu.com)

“Labbaik Allahumma Labbaik,Labbaik laa syarikka laka labbaik, Innal haamda wanni’mata laka wal mulk Laa syariika laka.” Yang bermaksud:
“Aku datang memenuhi panggilanMu ya Allah,
Aku datang memenuhi panggilanMu, Tidak ada sekutu bagiNya,
Ya Allah aku penuhi panggilanMu.
Sesungguhnya segala puji dan kebesaran untukMu semata-mata.
Segenap kerajaan untukMu.
Tidak ada sekutu bagiMu”

Musim haji sudah tiba dan insan-insan yang telah terpilih untuk menjadi tetamuNya sedang siap-sedia dari segi rohani dan jasmani. Cukup bertuah kepada sesiapa yang terpilih menjadi tetamuNya, ada yang berduit tetapi masih tidak lagi mendapat jemputan dariNya oleh itu wang bukan segalanya… Kepada yang ditinggalkan, jangan bersedih kerana mereka pergi menuju ke jalan Allah, dan ingatlah dari Allah kita datang dan kepada Allah kita akan kembali… Doakan mereka supaya mereka mendapat menjalani ibadah haji dengan aman dan damai dan mendapat haji yang mabrur…

Bulan Bahasa Kebangsaan

Bulan Bahasa Kebangsaan 2010

Bulan Bahasa Kebangsaan

Bulan Oktober 2010 telah diwartakan sebagai Bulan Bahasa Kebangsaan. Bahasa Melayu merupakan bahasa kebangsaan negara Malaysia dan telah bertapak di Asia sejak berkurun lamanya.

Bahasa Melayu ialah sejenis bahasa Melayu-Polinesia di bawah keluarga bahasa Austronesia yang telah digunakan di wilayah Malaysia, Indonesia, dan persekitarannya sejak melebihi 1,000 tahun lalu. Walaupun asal usul bangsa Melayu (dalam pengertian yang khusus) yang paling asal belum diketahui secara pasti tetapi pertumbuhan bahasa Melayu dapatlah dikatakan berasal dari Sumatera Selatan di sekitar Jambi dan Palembang.[1] Rekod terawal bahasa Melayu Kuno ialah sebuah batu bersurat bertarikh 682 Masihi yang dijumpai di Sumatera Selatan.

Bahasa Melayu ialah bahasa kebangsaan Malaysia, Indonesia, dan Brunei, serta salah satu bahasa rasmi di Singapura. Di Indonesia, bahasa Melayu kini dipanggil bahasa Indonesia, dan di Malaysia, bahasa Melayu secara rasminya dipanggil bahasa Malaysia. Selain daripada keempat-empat negara tersebut, bahasa Melayu juga ditutur oleh penduduk-penduduk Melayu di Thailand Selatan, Filipina, Kemboja, Vietnam, Sri Lanka dan Afrika Selatan.

Points to Ponder Driving in Asia

Part of the text below were taken from one the Reader’s Digest columns ‘Unbelievable Tall Tales From Asia by Nury Vittachi’. The title is ‘Staying Alive on Asian Roads’.

Got Milk? (http://bad-drivers-today.blogspot.com/)

… 5 general rules of the road for drivers in Asia:

Rule 1: There are no rules, except the golden rule: Cows get priority.

Rule 2: All traffic drives on the left, except for traffic that drives on the right and traffic that drives in the middle.

Rule 3: All drivers are obliged to help break the record for largest number of vehicles abreast on a twolane highway.

Rule 4: Signalling before you turn is considered bad form, since surprises are more fun.

Rule 5: When driving at night, headlights should be kept at full beam to blind oncoming drivers or swtiched off (see reference to “surprises” in Rule 4)

Well, be careful when driving and think about this 5 rules when you hit the road.

Top 5 Tips to Build Wealth and Success
(Source: Yahoo Finance)

Everybody wants to be rich, so this article were taken from Yahoo Finance (http://financiallyfit.yahoo.com) on the tips and tricks to make plan your everyday expenses.

1. Live Below Your Means.
Being wealthy isn’t just a product of your salary or investment prowess; it’s learning how to save.

“We can make a lot of money, you can make a little bit of money, but the second you spend all the money is when people get into trouble. Saving is the key to preserving your wealth,” says Ed Butowsky, managing partner of Chapwood Capital Investment Management, a firm that manages money for wealthy individuals.

As many Americans realized during the booming real estate market, just because you think you can afford something doesn’t mean you should buy it. Keeping an eye on your bottom line will pay dividends over the long term.

2. Bounce Back From Defeat
With nearly 15 million workers unemployed right now in the U.S., it’s easy to get discouraged. Don’t! Most successful and wealthy people have overcome obstacles and failure along the way. Steve Jobs was ousted from Apple when he was 30. Today, he’s a billionaire and a legend. Plus, after getting fired, he created another billion-dollar media company, Pixar.

“Bouncing back from defeat is something all great achievers have. They have this undying belief good things will happen and will continue to happen,” says Butowsky.

Take Michael Jordan. “His airness” was cut from his high school basketball team. Motivated by the rejection, Jordan became a star the next season. The rest is history.

3. Self-Promote
Regardless of the profession, the rich and successful tend to have a strong sense of self-worth — key to skillfully navigating an upward career path. Mark Hurd, who was ousted as CEO of Hewlett-Packard in August, couldn’t be kept down for long. Using his business skills and connections, in September, Hurd was named president of Oracle. (Hurd and Oracle founder Larry Ellison are known to be close friends.)

4. Have Street Smarts
Bernie Madoff lived the high life for decades, scamming unsuspecting clients, with a money-making formula that proved too good to be true. Only afterward did we learn that with a little due diligence, most clients could have easily uncovered the fraud.

But it’s not only the swindlers and the con men you have to watch out for. Many times, friends and family take advantage of the rich. Whether it’s a handout or an investment idea, Butowsky advises his high net worth clients that in most cases, it’s wisest to just say “no.” The best way to do that: have someone else do it for you.

“You need to really set up a wall between you and your family,” he advises. “If you don’t want to give them (family or friends) money … saying no is probably a good idea.”

5. Buy Cheap
The rich can afford to splurge, but that doesn’t mean they do.

John Paulson, a billionaire hedge fund manager, bought his Hamptons “dream house at a bargain basement price,” according to Greg Zuckerman, author of the Paulson-based book, “The Greatest Trade Ever.” The story has it that Paulson eyed the home while it was in foreclosure. Finally, on a rain-soaked day, he purchased the home on the Southampton town hall steps. He was the only bidder.

On New York City’s Upper East Side, Michael’s— The Consignment Shop for Women— has been a bargain-hunting destination for more than 60 years. “We have a good percentage of women who can afford to shop on Madison Avenue but really like the idea of saving that money,” says proprietor Tammy Gates.

From Chanel to Gucci and Louis Vuitton, the store specializes in high-end designer merchandise for a reasonable price. Speaking of her clientele, Gates says, “they’re wealthy for a reason. They recognize that bargains keep people wealthy. Paying top dollar when you don’t have to doesn’t make sense.”
