People Like Ananda A/ L Arumugam Keeps Me Going .........


...... a 2012 Case History anecdote.

Ananda, a young man, lorry driver, in his late thirties, had acute myocardial infarct affecting anterior wall of his heart,landed at ER , SJMC in the wee hours of the morning.

Had emergency myocardial infarct angioplasty, right away.

A month later, after recuperation,on reporting back for duty, was told by his boss, " You are terminated!  "

This is the real world at the basic level......

" Tak apa Ananda, our God is both compassionate and merciful. Insyallah, I pray you will be OK.

Just go back, dont panic. Go back and think......this may be a big break for opening to something bigger! ...."

In Pursuit Of Happiness..... pursuit of happiness: Mufti Muhammad al- Kawthauri

The key words are Redha & Content at what Allah ' throws at you '.

6 important ' modus operandi ' :

1. In matters of ' duniya ', look  at people below  you, you will automatically be on SHUKR mode.

2. In matters of Din, look at people above you. look at scholars, waliallahs tok gurus, etc etc & etc.

3. Keep the 'duniya ' in your pocket, the ' akhirat ' ii your heart.

    Let the world serve us, not we serve the duniya

    Do not expect anything from anyone. Cut off all expectations from people.

4. Remember death all the time. [  Muraqaba of Death  ]

    Life after death is INFINITY.

5. Start off the day around solatul fajar, with taddabur of the Quran, and taffakur and zikrullah.

    Smile & Be Positive  & Optimistic All The Time......

     Afterall only we who are gifted with Islam, have Posterity.

6.  Keep yourselves busy with good & useful activities all the time, irrespective of your age.

The Good; The Bad & The Ugly.........

....a 2012 recollection.

Meg Wade

2  Left Main Stem  cases presenting in one day, one died 'on the  table' , another one survived......

This is the video game, in my type of work, that keeps me still going........the adrenaline rush, the excitement and the satisfaction of opening up arteries in my patients, and subsequently following them up for life, and putting them back into active lives that they are used to, before their ailment.

Start watching the video at say 12 th minutes, to avoid the intro, which is pretty educational anyway, even for ' non plumbers '.

This is my life..

Exercise : Mixing The Profane & The Sublime... current favourite is swimming at lunch time at my local club, just across the Federal Highway, opposite of my hospital.

" Allaaaaah ",when my head is above water, " Huuuuuu ",when exhaling under water, doing the breast stroke.

" Allaaaaah, Allaaaah, Allaaah, Allaaaah... ", running in neck deep water.

One can go for hours doing this.

Mixing the Profane &  the Sublime........try it for size.

You may get addicted to it.

Jewels From The Qur'an : Surah al- Maoun

...the opening gambit of Surah al- Maoun , is very familiar to myself. I have been there some 62 years ago! Being orphaned at age no small matter.
For 1 full year I kept slapping and scratching myself in the face form time to time, hoping against hope, that one fine day, I just woke up and realized that , the walking sadness and grievous loss, was just a dream..........Such was the vagaries and loneliness of being an orphan in old Kota Bharu in the early sixties.......

Your Children & Wives Are A Fitnah To You : al-AnFal, Ayat 28......


.....a good friend of mine, the late Ahmad Ramli Zakaria, an ardent bike enthusiast, asked me a decade ago, '' How come Doc, you say our children and wives can be a fitnah to us ! ? "

" I dont say that Li, Allah said so....just look at most of our top politicians, cabinet ministers and pm's, past and almost,even present......they have pillaged, and hoarded the nations wealth for themselves and families, some even beyond three generations 'makan pun tak habis', if not reminded properly by the raaayat at the polls or on  social media..........salah haribulan , these very same wives and children may even burden them in their alam  barzark and the hereafter, for not giving them prior proper religious guidance and 'education'....Depa ingat jadi father ni senang...not accountable for their offsprings and wives wrongdoings...."

[ bini celupar mulut,tak solat, suami yang kena; anak perempuan pakai tak senonoh,ayah yang kena; anak isteri guna harta sang ayah untuk perkara2 non syariah compliant pun, semasa sang ayah dan suami masih hidup atau mati pun, dia kena joke jadi ayah dan sang suami............Sang bapa nya redah hidup, cari makan, tak kira riba, halal haram, korupsi dan harta negara, tak kira, semua dia bedal, demi perceived kesejahteraan  isteri dan anak2........ini yang dinamakan  fitnah, selain dari yang dikupas olih hamka ]

The Most Successful Lorry Driver In Malaysia.....


...." You are doing well Eddy, can I refer you for further follow  up at Sungai  Buluh Hospital? "

" Biarkan lah Doc, disini berkat..."

That was 10 years on, when I initially , mentally, on statstical basis, dilated congestive heart failure like his , with an LV ejection of just 20 %, I gave him only, 12 months at best, way back in 2001..

People,  honest and uncomplaining like Eddy Warman, keeps me still practising......basic people with good hearts and souls. It warms my soul to be in contact and able to do my bit for such people...

There is value added meaning to my own existence.

PS :

Eddy is no longer under my follow up  about 10 years. His 3 daughters are all 'pakar' in specialties of their choice. Enche Hairuddin, a family friend just rang me to tell, Eddy is still going strong and still driving his lorry.

That  to me is a world record of sort. A chap with 20 % LVEF, going on for over 20 years now.

Amin Rais On Liberal Islam......


.....a 2010 conversation with Majlis Tabligh. As very relevant then, as it is more, now, globally, as well as locally.

Dear Ru, Sha, Jo & Nina......


......a mid 2010 contribution to Pearls & Gem.

Letter to Ru, Sha, Jo & Nina.  

" Guys, you can be sufi, mufti, centrist, leftist or rightist in the ugama. Even a Wahabbi. No problem.

You guys still are within the broad spectrum of the ugama. You can choose to be broad-minded or go through life wearing blinkers forever. No issue as long as you guys peg your position with ilm, ilm, ilm & ilm.

But please avoid  at all costbeing a ' liberal islamist ', because 'kalau salah haribulan' if you join the group that thinks, " no big deal semua ugama sama ", during nabi's time, he  avoided praying at their funerals  and advised his sahabats not to as well.

There is no ' animal '  during Nabi's time calling themselves ' liberal islamists '.

People labelled them as al mounafiqes, that time & Allah is very definitive about His feeling for this group of ' animals ': They all are firewood for hell.

No political correctness then...Political Correctness is a present day American disease!

" Talk To Your Monkeys Please! "... mid 2011, Ringgit Malaysia & NTR , were busy putting their 'people' in important places  across the board. I went into 'verbal diarhoe' mode, but alas, as usual, in our political landscape, as happening in decades past, and sadly, decades in the future, no one ever took notice the voices of the masses.

" Cari Makan " remained the order of the day.

That is Malaysia Boleh for you and me!

Let Us Re-Examine Our Shahadah....

Yet, hearts remained unmoved, eyes remained dry, and sadly, on a global scale, they percolate down to the bottommost of the league table......Why????

" All We Ask ".......A Poem By Sam Hamod


....a poem by Sam Hamod, relevant in these days and age of  'bastardization' or 'pariarization' or 'talibanization' of Muslims the world over, ' presided ' over by Western and Judeo-Christian hegemony.

The choice of the 'adjectives' does not matter.......they were, and still are, shot at like 'mad dogs in the streets of Aleppo, Kabul or New Delhi.......not the least in Tel Aviv and the West Bank....

[VIDEO] Isa ibnu Maryam : Biblical Stories In The Qur'an

 Isa ibnu Maryam aka Jesus Christ :

 Biblical stories in the Qur'an.

 Mainly from Surah al-Imran [ father of Maryam alaihissalam, mother Isa ibnu Maryam aka Jesus Christ

 & Surah Maryam

On the day when We shall gather the righteous unto the Beneficent, a goodly company. (85) And drive the guilty unto Hell, a weary herd, (86) They will have no power of intercession, save him who hath made a covenant with his Lord. (87) And they say: The Beneficent hath taken unto Himself a son. (88) Assuredly ye utter a disastrous thing (89) Whereby almost the heavens are torn, and the earth is split asunder and the mountains fall in ruins, (90) That ye ascribe unto the Beneficent a son, (91) When it is not meet for (the Majesty of) the Beneficent that He should choose a son. (92) There is none in the heavens and the earth but cometh unto the Beneficent as a slave. (93)
