Have you guys had the experience of getting confused with these three words? Like in malay language, we have tengok, nampak and lihat... Immaculate!! most of the times, we just get confused with these three words eventhough they are of the same action but bring big differences in expressing, understanding and acting as well...Even we don't use such words for different situations but it sometimes bring a new meaning instead of having a what-so-called wrong usage.. for example, I watched the TV... and I saw the TV... I look at the TV.. of course we'll choose "I watched the TV" instead of another two...however, are we going to say I LOOK or I SAW as a wrong usage? I don't think so.... The accuracy of a thing depends on how people view on it..BUT WE MUST KNOW THE FOUNDATION ...
         Whilst some new convert-into-Islam companions went to get the shelter from a christian King Najasyi at the Habsyah, he did say the same thing about Islam and christian... "Islam and christian came from the same source like sunlight that is separated by two holes when it reaches a box" I made my mind clear about this that all religions aim for the best for their followers BUT they don't have any connection with the verily God in the correct path except Islam.. for example, HINDU.. they believe in the Most Gracious Allah but they still  need those idols to connect to the God.. and this what we call as is when we put the oneness of god, the mighty, the powerful of God at the same level with the other creatures.. Creatures are the things that involved in three type of elements which are TIME, MASS and SPACE... try to think it.. nothing are out of these elements.. JINS, HEAVEN, HELL, MAHSYR, AIR, OUTER SPACE and all are creatures... the Dzat that is out of these elements is the CREATOR and it's ALLAH the almighty...

                                                   ablution before entering jinja

         Spending my times with those Japanese people, more or less acknowledges me with this kind of thoughts.. SEE&WATCH&LOOK... they don't believe in God but during having some difficulties or tests., they'll go to jinja(mcm tokong) for prayer or for their rituals.. What can I explain here is about the confusion between what are they in... they say they don't believe in God but at the same time they pray for succeed at the jinja... doesn't it turn u into confusion? One thing what I found about Japanese people is their confusion about cultures and religions' ritual... they have ONE JAPAN.. when budhists are going to marry in a wonderful and dashing ceremony , they end up to go to churches... when christians are going to burry their families dead bodies, they go to jinja.. and it goes on repeatedly till you can't think anymore.. YES! In Islam we can't mix the matter of religion with other religions'... we still can pay a visit to a dead body of a different religion but we can't do or act that follows their rituals... We can celebrate chinese new year as it's a culture or what can I say a race celebration and not related to religion.. This is how Islam preserves the divine of a religion itself.. Islam states clearly when you need to SEE , when you need to LOOK and when you need to WATCH.. She never has a grey zone which leaves people with unanswered questions except for the questions of  the details of God..

                                                      in front of jinja in asakusa

          Talking about this matter I would like to bring it up back... it's about the trinity concept in christian.. The god is one person, the jesus is one person and the holy spirit is one persons but they are not three persons , they are one person.. don't ask me what type of language is this.. I myself don't understand at all... This is how human beings' mind are being retarded... Whoever try to explain this concept with a full-confidence you are just playing with the SEE, LOOK and WATCH matters..

                                                 eating udon and soba... best!!!

           This is how Islam has changed my mind more or less.. knowing about other religions is one of the method to know Islam or what can I say here is to understand more and more about Islam because it intimates in your daily life; working, eating, playing, managing and etc.. that's why Islam can be known from the other religions as it covers all ur needs and ur rights... wallahua'lam....!!!

أَفَغَيْرَ دِينِ اللَّهِ يَبْغُونَ وَلَهُ أَسْلَمَ مَنْ فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ طَوْعًا وَكَرْهًا وَإِلَيْهِ يُرْجَعُونَ

Do they seek other than the religion of Allâh (the true Islâmic Monotheism worshipping none but Allâh Alone), while to Him submitted all creatures in the heavens and the earth, willingly or unwillingly. And to Him shall they all be returned... T

I get this from one article..nice!!

An old American Muslim lived on a farm in the mountains of eastern Kentucky with his young grandson. Each morning Grandpa was up early sitting at the kitchen table reading his Quran. His grandson wanted to be just like him and tried to imitate him in every way he could.
One day the grandson asked, “Grandpa! I try to read the Quran just like you but I don’t understand it, and what I do understand I forget as soon as I close the book. What good does reading the Qur’an do?”
The Grandfather quietly turned from putting coal in the stove and replied, “Take this coal basket down to the river and bring me back a basket of water. The boy did as he was told, but all the water leaked out before he got back to the house. The grandfather laughed and said, “You’ll have to move a little faster next time,” and sent him back to the river with the basket to try again.
This time the boy ran faster, but again the basket was empty before he returned home. Out of breath, he told his grandfather that it was impossible to carry water in a basket, and he went to get a bucket instead.
The old man said, “I don’t want a bucket of water; I want a basket of water. You’re just aganot trying hard enough,” and he went out the door to watch the boy try in.
At this point, the boy knew it was impossible, but he wanted to show his grandfather that even if he ran as fast as he could, the water would leak out before he got back to the house. The boy again dipped the basket into river and ran hard, but when he reached his grandfather the basket was again empty. Out of breath, he said, “See Grandpa, it’s useless!”
“So you think it is useless?” The old man said, “Look at the basket.”
The boy looked at the basket and for the first time realized that the basket was different. It had been transformed from a dirty old coal basket and was now clean, inside and out. Son, that’s what happens when you read the Qur’an. You might not understand or remember everything, but when you read it, you will be changed, inside and out. That is the work of Allah in our lives.”

I've no mat and my apparels are dirty....HOW?

Salam, this is the mundane topic to be discussed about and it's not related to study-abroad students only, but many of muslims who live in muslim countries.. I had many experiences with such persons.. example, during my secondary school, we had a trip to Selangor and everytime we stopped at the R&R, he used to give this kind of excuses... and some of my acquaintance too... "aku semayang kat umah laa.." "sempat laa tu".. and so on.. immaculately harsh to be heard and the most worst part , they'll marginalized or what can I describe as giving out sarcastic words towards those perform-their-worship-ritual persons.. I couldn't bear that much...

          Scared to hurt someone or giving bad image of themselves, Japanese people have had respected our religion.. and I did have a conversation with some Japanese friend.."イスラム教のことを高校で習ったよ。。なんか優しくて。。。" and so on.. "I've learnt about Islam during my high school and they bring kind hearted and good images..." I nodded in my heart.. that's what I know about Islam from others' views.. but it won't bring much impacts nowadays.. muslims aren't being respected for they themselves scared being labeled as Islam..and I just got stuck !!!

As the Messenger of Allah Ta'ala prophesied:
"It is expected that nations will call other nations to share against you, as the feasters call each other to eat from the food in front of them in a large wooden plate. One of the companions asked, 'O Messenger of Allah, will this be because of our small number on that day?' And the Prophet said, 'No. Your number will be great. But you will be without substance, like the foam on the face of a river; and Allah will remove from the breasts of your enemies the fear of you; and Allah will throw wahn into your hearts.' One of the companions asked, 'What is wahn, O Allah's Apostle?' And the Prophet responded, "Wahn is to love this life, and to hate death!'

.. Indeed this happened nowadays right.. we hate the zionists , ironically at the same time we turn up to become their starbucks dealer, their McD supporters and etc...

        As I first arrived my university on the first day.. the eyes were on me all the ways.. apparently, a deer enters a village (sorry this is a direct translation of malay language idiom) means you become everyone's attention as a new comer.. anyway, I just couldn't stand it but nothing much you just need to take it for granted, right? Maybe, it's the same like when you see a MAT SALLEH(foreigner special for americans n europeans), all eyes are following till the end angle of the eyes and it includes YOU right? he3... I cared not about it much but how would I spend my time, my space for worship ritual had turned me into troubles.. It's not I didn't want to pray but all feelings about what they would say, and won't they expect you as a terrorist when they see the same ritual as the being-accused-as-terrorist brothers did... fiuh!! such a confusion! But thinking about being labeled or etc would just interrupt and bring you away from the verily Creator ... it's not human beings' blessing you are searching for but the God's... but believe in me... they know nothing about our prayer or to be frank about our religion...

      I never found any muslims at the University.. all are wearing short skirts, necklaces, blonde hairs, cross symbols and blablabla.... a little bit depressed but I know this is how those companions started their ways from a small amount of people.. While taking my ablution, all the Japanese did look at my actions and it brought uncomfortable feelings inside..but who cares, He sees me everyday even when I switched off the electrics , He never misses to have me on  His view.. and starting from that day till 2-month time , I prayed at the field, under the 9building, behind the postgraduate lecturers' rooms, at the corridors, in the classes and etc.. starting from those days I enjoyed praying anywhere even in a market, supermarket, war office.. I felt the freedom that I've never felt... the feelings that I never experienced in Malaysia where you need a MAT and you need a CLEAN apparels... as long as it is not NAJIS then we can perform the prayer.. stop being cheated with those ridiculous ideas... Islam never tortures you.. I found myself free from those ideas when I first stepped in an overseas country... a rule that I never thought I would practise if I were even in a what-so-called Islamic country.. actually I feel ashamed to call my own country an Islamic country.. I don't know why... I never found a brutal things in Japan like I did in Malaysia... but it can't be denied Japan herself owns negative values indeed because they don't believe in religion but what if they did, I can woe my own for having those youngsters with like-non-muslim attitudes...You can accuse me for a harsh word but it's the reality right? I'm sorry to say this but it does happen!!! How many from the youngsters who can't recite the al-fatihah? and apparently, who can't pray.. this doesnt include the one who doesn't want to pray... I have no idea about this... Oh Allah! give us the hidayah that leads to ur way, ameen....

I can say most of us know about the time line in Islam which brought up all well-known persons in the history.. we have Ibn sina, al-khawarizmi,ibn baitutah and etc.. muslims stand out and only could put their prides on these persons and keep saying their names related to the awesomeness of Islam, but we never point it out to us... why we couldn't repeat the same success as the prophet, companions and all the caliphate era's people did... and now this is the test.. this is the job that we hold on our shoulders.. nobody cares with this anymore... I hope even in me, there's more attempts towards finding the lights.. we believe in Islam and hereafter but do we really think we would reach there?

That a despotic and authoritarian regime will not be in power all the time. When munkars, tyranny and various forms of violations against Islamic values are increasingly rampant in a territory of the Islamic ummah, then the promise of Allah will come to pass, that the ruling regime at that time will be replaced with a generation or other regime that loves Allah and Allah loves them, humble toward the believers, powerful against the disbelievers; they strive in the cause of Allah and do not fear the blame of a critic (Q.S. al-Maidah: 54).

OH GOD why don't u tell me ealier it's a DOG!!!

I'd decided to just have myself about a week at NOMURA's house .. and it was a normal thing that you need to pay her a call or thanking for accepting the dwelling there... She made a strange sound ; trying to change a topic by asking me ... "一つのことだけど、この家には犬がいるよ。。大丈夫ですか?".."there's one thing I wanna tell you that we keep dog as a pet, r u okay with that?"... Oh god! it was just pulling ur mind out of the line... I just couldn't imagine how should I spend most of the seconds in the house with a DOG... my mum just got nervous of knowing this.. But I comforted her that everything's gonna be fine..she believes in me, I guess.. My first step into the house was freaking scary .. dogs will after you either being happy or vice's a normal image of a dog.. whilst Oniyama and I had the step in, the dog barked at me and after me..arrrgghh..I ran quickly to the second floor..but wait a minute!!! it was just a dog...if you touched it you just need to wash with soil solution n 6 times of pipe water etc(air mutlak).. the dog was named JACK, an american dog... everyday she smelt of me n she barked...By the way, I heard the dogs in egypt look like malaysia's cats.. like to be pampered and so spoiled.. they can touch the dogs but if the saliva is on they need to wash according to the methods I've written..

                        Don't always give excuses but face the problems..that was what I whispered in me... you just need to stay and as Islam is not a difficult religion ... there is always a solution for your problem.. In Malaysia, we've been so fanatic towards heritage understanding till we forget the principle of Islam.. when you say I touched a pig then everybody starts to yell..."eh! kamu sama' x lg? sertu x lg? nnti nk solat? etc" who said you cannot touch em? if you touch you need to wash and it is not a SIN of touching those pigs and dogs but you need to wash as they are NAJIS... It brings a different way of thinking where you can simply touch a woman who doesn't hold any relationship with you..all the couples out there; are just holding hands, hugging each others and many more.. frankly speaking it's so rare to find a couple of Japanese holding hands here... If I were to say this, I would give a numerical views which is 0.0000000000000000000001percent who do so..

Translation of Hadith: It has been narrated on the authority of Hadhrat Abu Hurairah (May Allah be well pleased with him) that the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) has said:  Every part of the body plays its part in adultery.  Eyes fornicate and their fornication is seeing.  Hands fornicate and their fornication is holding and grasping.  Feet fornicate and their fornication is to walk (towards adultery).  Mouth fornicates and its fornication is to kiss.  The heart desires and the private parts endorse it by fornicating or belies it and stays away from adultery.  (Musnad Iman Ahmed bin Hambal, Hadith No. 8572)

 in Malaysia, they can't touch dogs or even pigs which bring those what-so-called maladies to them but I saw a lot of couples of youngsters holding hands ... n plus the girls are with tudung covering on their heads as well... the understanding of Islam is based on principle not on ur mums' tongue or ur grandmum's writing..

So as to bring this up, I say into my heart "you need to deal with this as it opens the way for others to know about Islam" just take it to reveal a word from the Prophet (pbuh)...

The Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said, “Convey from me even an Ayah of the Quran; relate traditions from Banu Israel, and there is no restriction on that; but he who deliberately forges a lie against me let him have his abode in Hell.” [Sahih Bukhari]

Allah doesn't want you to change human beings but He wants you to do the jobs.. He wants you to put attempts of conveying the Islam's words... as He would change people as he wants just say, just convey and just reveal..He will give others hidayah...
