The Opening Chapter of Seven verses (Al-Fatihah)

This is compulsory Surah during worship in Islam. Please take note that surah is a chapter or portion of the Quran.

Al-fatihah is also named as “The Opening” because it is the first surah in Al-Quran and are recited in every prayer and many other occasions.

All the Muslims need to memorialize this surah.

Start with “Bismilla-hir-rahma-ni-rahim”

1. ALHAM-DULILAH-HI-RABBIL-AL-ALMIN
2. AR-RAHMAN-NI-RAHIM
3. MALI-KIYAU-MID-DIN
4. IYA-KANAQ-BUDU-WA-IYA-KANAQ-SE-TAIN
5. IH-DINAS-SIROTOL-MUSTA-QIM
6. SIROTOL-LAZINA-AN-AM-TAK-ALAI-HIM
7. GHOI-RIL-MAGH-DU-BI-ALAI-HIM-WALAQ-DHOOOOO-LI
AMIN

Highlighted words are the common mistakes while I try to remember these 7 verses.

Basic of IQRA

Leaning basic of IQRA is a compulsary subject I need to attend after solat magrid. Initially when I learn this arabic text and I always forgot the symbol on the following days. It took me a few days to memorize the text. However, my son danish able to remember and his absorption better than adult (me).....only he a bit lazy. He learn a few symbols per day.

For those muslim want to learn then I suggest you start to memorize these 5 arabic symbols (a, ba, ta, sa & ja) on the first day or on the first week before learn the new word.



Perhaps on the second week, you learn another 5 symbols (ha, ho, da, za & ro)

Zakat for Gold and Silver

Recently, there is a campaign to invest in gold by a group of Malaysian. This is a wise strategy because the value of gold always appreciated over the year. However, we do not forget to pay zakat as our responsibility as Muslim.

According to The holy of Quran by Abdullah Yusof Ali, under surah At-Tawbah sentence 34

“O ye who believe! There are
Indeed many among the priests
And anchorites who in
falsehood.
Devour the substance of men
And hinder (them) from the Way
Of Allah. And there are those
Who bury gold and silver
And spend it not in the Way
Of Allah: announce unto them
A most grievous penalty-”

From the translation,

“misuse of wealth, property and resources is frequently condemned and in 3 ways

1. Do not acquire anything wrongfully or false pretences
2. Do not hoard or bury or amass wealth for its own sake, but use it freely for good, whether for yourself or your neighbours
3. Be particularly careful not to waste it for idle purposes but only so that it may fructify for good of the people.”

Below there are the calculation to compute the zakat for Gold & Silver

Zakat for Gold can be divided into 2 categories

A) Gold under utilized within a year and equal or more than 85 gram when (nisab), then the zakat is 2.5% without including “uruf”.

Example:
Market value = RM8,0000
Zakat = RM8,0000 x 2.5% = RM200

B) Gold being utilized which means either frequently or being used within the year and more than the value of “uruf” (RM5,000) then zakat need to pay. The computation is based on the value of gold and excluding diamond and others jewelry.
Example :

Market value = RM 25,000
Minus uruf = RM 5,000

The balance of RM20,000 x 2.5% = RM500

Calculation of zakat silver

The ratio is 595 gram and zakat need to pay after the amount.

Example

Market value = RM8,0000
Zakat = RM8,0000 x 2.5% = RM200

Handling stress in Islam method

Today I just aware that there are many methods in handling stress in Islam as highlighted by Mr. Khairunneezam Mohd Noor in Mingguan Malaysian dated 5 july 2009.

One of the methods is what Muslim do daily from early in the morning until night. Solat 5 times in a day (Subuh, Zuhur, Asar, Maghrib & Isyak). When a Muslim does a Solat, we can feel peaceful in mind and soul because our mind only focuses on Allah (The god).

There are many western psychology doctor and researcher noticed about this fact. According to them, all the movement in Solat is to prevent hormone like Cortisol, Epinephrine and Norepinephrine leak from adrenalin where it cause the stress to human being.

Second fact is Solat can improve human breath system, heath and brain.

Please kindly find out the content of surah al-Baqarah sentence 153 where it stated that Allah will assist those pray to Him.

The second method is by “zikir” under surah al-Ra’d sentence 28.

Third method is listening and understanding the content of Al-Quran.

Above 3 methods are very useful to a Muslim. When non-Muslim asked us why we need to pray for 5 times in a day then above statements can be justified.

Stress handling is vital in the era especially recession time. This morning I read from one Chinese news paper stated that during this recession period, there are many people in stress because worry to lose their job. When workers in stress, the performance of duty also will be decreased and cause the quality of product or services.

Naked to reduce stress, this is the main topic of this article. It happened at London. All the employees need to naked on Friday so that there is no fear when deal with higher ranking officer. This may be work on western country and I do not think it can works on Asian country. Can you work when you see your female colleague naked? I think the situation will become worse and can cause sex harassment.
