A'ah..i was on leave yesterday..got few things to settle b4 we celebrate raya..nk cuti today - friday, susah pulak because got few things to settle at the office plus others ramai yang dh blk kampung..as a KLian, kira i sacrificed lar nie..


Morning

I sent the kids to mak as usual..then we (me & hubby) went out b4 9..we sent kueh raya to zz, my cousin, working at Sime Darby..thanks for your support girl..and then we went to jln tar..we parked at sogo - we changed mama's baju kurung..the one that we bought can't suit her..so, note to myself - mama x wear baju kurung pahang..and then we went to discover the beneath in Jalan Tar and Jalan Masjid India..we were looking for ayyen's baju melayu..hard to find the color that we wanted and exactly looks like the daddy's..bila jumpa, no size..at the end, we found it at Bak Collection..handsome lar my lil hero raya nnt..i always like the design and the material they are using at the Bak's..nice and simple and different than others..

Noon


Still at Jalan Tar..orang semakin ramai..b4 not that ramai..so we head to Kamdar and took our curtains there..took with money lar kan..nothing's free maa..after that we went to sogo..im thinking of getting apak new tshirt..found 1, but when i called mak to get the size (somehow i forgot apak's size..because he do looks slimmer nowadays - so it's either M or L)..mak said no need to buy, apak got new tshirts already..apak said, "baju apak dh byk.." hahahaha..so i didn't buy the tshirt..juz got him nice gajah duduk only..from there we went to ikano..where else if not to the branded outlet store..we were there for a lil while only..not many choices..plus, hehehe, they got many new clothes already..i bought slowly every month at sogo tue apa?? mm..after zohor we went to kl sentral..need to take few stuff from my k.noor there..from kl sentral we went to bangsar village..hubby bought gown for aneen..she refused to try it..so we went to change and get different one..so hubby choosed the maroon gown..hope she like it this time..byk cakap, baru umur 3 thn dh mengada-ngada nk pki xnk pki..

Late Noon a.k.a Evening

Got call from mak..asking where i was..i said on the way back..she said the kids buat hal and dun want to sleep..then she said, "balik cepat sikit.." i looked at the watch, it's 3:30..hahahaa..do u think if i'm working today or she didn't know that i'm cuti, she will call and ask me to come back early?? hahahahah..mungkin tidak..so we went home..ayyen finally slept with daddy and aneen stayed awake with mummy..

Night

Iftar at mak's - as usual..kfc from k.noor - tq k.noor, and nasi lauk kari ikan, ayam msk merah, pindang and ikan goreng..yummy..when they went for terawikh i let the kids playing with pop-pop..blablablabla, we went home - our own home..tried the baju on the kids..ayyen looked very handsome with the baju melayu (apa lagi kerja mummy perasan kalo x puji anak dia??)..aneen was very happy with the new gown.."i am pinses aneen.." allah..perasan x sudah anak dara raja aman sorg nie..then later on she slept in front of the tv..yeah, she didn't sleep at all today..and ayyen was very energetic..i was watching my Grey's Anatomy when he came inside the room and asked me to read the book for him..fine, i read while watching..and then he got bored and started to play with his car and truck..then suddenly he tried to throw all the toys from the bakul..terus i marah dia..then he looked at me and said, "topp..toppp..sleep opah..go!! go!! sleep opah.." (stop!! stop!! sleep dengan opah..) while the hand showing to his opah's house..ambooiiii..dia pulak nk halau kita..pada halnya dia yg buat perangai..ya allah ya tuhan ku..so poyoo..i juz let him played by himself..as long as tak bising..then he wanted to sleep..fine, i gave him milk, that i prepared it earlier..and gave him his blankie and pillo - also i brought it with me into the room when i want to watch the series..dh agak dh..

Alhamdulillah..i slept around 1:30am..very sleepy and so tired..i had a longer day today than yesterday when it was my deadline day..still, i can do it again next year..no sweat..tiring is nothing when it comes to shopping and facing the naugthy of the kids...

Sayang Cucu

Hubby brought back 2 hampers for raya..hampers of kueh-kueh lar kan..thank u dear..thank u dear's friends..

And the hamper were so nice..with the ribbons and all the decorations..the basket looks different..i told mak, "plus this ribbon (the type yg mcm kulit pokok tue), mak dh ada banyak dh yang mcm nie..nnt mak boleh buat mak punya sendiri.." and mak also duk tilik-tilik the things whats inside the hamper..

"Huh..mana-mana ntah yang ada tue..anak-anak awak duk main, merata.." Hahahaha..i said, its your fault.."Kalau kitorg dulu, tak berani nk usik..nnt kena marah..budak-budak tue sekarang dengan mak, semua blh.." mak replied, "awak orang x suka mende-menda mcm nie.." What?? Where did she get that from?? "Tak suka?? Bukan x suka mak, x berani..sekali usik, mau mak mengamuk.." And as usual, "tak adanya.." hhahhahaha..yes mak, ada..

And so i said to mak, "sekarang, kalau they all buat apa-apa, mak juz "mmm.." tue jer..tue jer?? sapa yang takut macam tue.." So i started blabbering to mak, the opah's role that she's been playing now.."semua manja..semua boleh..sampai masa, they all sendiri know where to turn whenever Deng kata tak boleh.."

I started ngajuk what Ayyen always said, "tak nak kawan opah.." "dun do that!!" "Ayyen punya.." and blablabla..all of suddence mak laughed.."hari nie mak kena lagi..mak nak tgk tv.."opah tunggu sekejap yea..cerita nie nk habis dh..opah tunggu yea.." mak gelak sorang dengar..habis jer cerita, terus dia tekan cerita mak nk tengok..Allah lah..."

Haa..how?? This kasih sayang opah - cucu already spoiled everything..mak was known as the most garang auntie in the family..but when it comes to cucu, "ala cucu opah..come here..mummy marah ker??" Rosak..rosak...

Siapa sorang lagi??

On the 3rd day puasa during our first year of marriage, my husband came back from work and told me, "i dh byr zakat..utk 3 org.." hehe..a year before, he only paid for himself..and additional 2 after he got married - me and aneen..

On the 2nd year, still in the 1st week puasa, he came back at work and told me, "i dh byr zakat.." hehe..very fast..he said, "nanti kalau tunggu lama-lama, beratur orang nk byr..tgk ustaz tue sorang jer, i terus byr.."

Last year punn the same thing happened..but this time, "i dh byr zakat..utk 4 org.." yeah..ayyen came out last raya, so we dun have to pay zakat for him in that year..ok lar..now he's paying for 4...

This year, he didn't tell me anything on paying the zakat..before i got married, i juz bought beras and give them to any unknown rumah anak yatim..the glamorous ones, let the ministers or celebrities do the job lar kan..because apak always do that - buy beras and give them directly to the poorer/asnaf..and then apak will buy the beras back from him/her..so, we'll get the beras, and they'll get the money..rezeki masing-masing lar kan..

So i asked my husband last weekend, we were inside the car heading somewhere, i forgot lar where..

Me : Daddy..u dh byr zakat ker belum this year??
Hubby : Dh..semalam x ramai org kat balai Islam tue, i byr lar..lps nie nnt panjang pulak
beratur ramai org nk byr..
Me : Oo..i thot u tak byr lg..
Hubby : Dh..tp i byr utk 3 orang..i bagi ustaz tue RM30 because i tak ada duit kecik..ustaz tue
kata x apa..and then tiba-tiba baru i teringat, "Ehh ustaz..saya nk byr utk 4 orang.."
Me : Ha..ha..ha..siapa sorang lagi D?? U lupa siapa??
Hubby : I lupa i..muka ustaz tue punn mcm musykil because last year i byr utk 4
orang..tiba-tiba this year, 3 orang pulak..

ha..ha..ha..luckily he said that he forgot about himself..if he mentioned my name or any of the kids, i nk merajuk dh sebenarnya..hehe..u are old lar daddy...

Little info on zakat as below...

The obligatory nature of Zakat is firmly established in the Qur'an, the Sunnah (or hadith), and the consensus of the companions and the Muslim scholars. Allah states in Surah at-Taubah verses 34-35: "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- 35:On the Day when heat will be produced out of that (wealth) in the fire of Hell, and with it will be branded their foreheads, their flanks, and their backs, their flanks, and their backs.- "This is the (treasure) which ye buried for yourselves: taste ye, then, the (treasures) ye buried!" (The Holy Qur'an 9:34-35).

The prophet (pbuh) said: "Any owner of gold and silver who does not deliver from them their right, on the Day of Quiyamah (Day of Judgment), (the gold and silver) will be shaped as foils of fire. Then it will be heated in the fire of Hell; (and) then with it he will be ironed on his side, his forehead, and his back" (narrated by Muslim).

It is agreed between Muslims in all the centuries the obligatory nature of paying Zakat for gold and silver, and from those the other kinds of currency.

Zakat is obligatory when a certain amount of money, called the nisab is reached or exceeded. Zakat is not obligatory if the amount owned is less than this nisab. The nisab (or minimum amount) of gold and golden currency is 20 mithqal, this is approximately 85 grams of pure gold. One mithqal is approximately 4.25 grams. The nisab of silver and silver currency is 200 dirhams, which is approximately 595 grams of pure silver. The nisab of other kinds of money and currency is to be scaled to that of gold, 85 grams of pure gold. This means that the nisab of money is the price of 85 grams of 999-type (pure) gold, on the day in which Zakat is paid.

When is Zakat Due ?

1. Passage of One Lunar Year:
Zakat is obligatory after a time span of one lunar year passes with the money in the control of it's owner. Then the owner needs to pay 2.5% (or 1/40) of the money as Zakat. (A lunar year is approximately 355 days).
2. Deduction of Debts:
The owner should deduct any amount of money he or she borrowed from others; then check if the rest reaches the necessary nisab, then pays Zakat for it.
If the owner had enough money to satisfy the nisab at the beginning of the year, then the money increased (in profits, salaries, inheritance, grants...etc.), the owner needs to add the increase to the nisab amount owned at the beginning of the year; then pay Zakat, 2.5%, of the total at the end of the lunar year. (there are small differences in the fiqh schools here)

Zakat is due after one Lunar (Hijri) year starting from either the first day you acquired the amount of Nisab or the day you paid Zakat last year. The month of Ramadhan is considered to be the best time to pay Zakat.

U all dh byr ker blm??

TAK!! DIA TAK TAU!!

Alhamdulillah..today is hari utk bersyukur i guess..so many alhamdulillah that i wrote and lafaz..so, alhamdulillah again..hehe..this year, i got the chance to do my terawikh..at 1st i left the kids to k. nurul's house because she didn't fast..and then anak dara dia pulak took turn..so i juz left them to be huru-hara with the the As..hehe..and plus, it's the last chance that i got to be a makmum for Adan before he fly..alhamdulillah, dapat lar berjemaah dgn hubby, apak and mak jd makmum Adan kat surau Taman Melewar tue..merasa lar jugak...

So..last night, after iftar, i went back and get ready to go to terawikh..rupa-rupanya kakak also is preparing herself to got for terawikh..alamak!! and i was already in my telekung..since day 1 i did my terawikh, i kept thinking, i can bring the kids..the can sit here..i juz have to bring this and that and make them leka..and my hubby, like any other jemaah, keep saying NO!! but last night, i became usual me, a stubborn cold hearted DENG..hehe..i want to bring the kids..i know i can managed them..i know..yes..i can...

And we all went to the surau..aneen was kindly so so lar, dpt ikut daddy pergi pray nie..and ayyen, being himself, excited lar dpt naik car..what he knows is nothing like us lar obviously kan..mm..

With giler penuh debar i brought them into the pray hall..i felt like all eyes were staring at me..auntie ati, one of the jemaah said, "bawak escort hari nie deng.." "a'ah..x ada org nk jaga hari nie.." makin kuat i berdebar..so we did our Isyak..at 1st, it was tenang seketika, because they both asking for their milk..and after a while, the long nigt began..hahahaha..very long u know...

I was praying with all others, but my eyes like watching them..with the perangai kacau calling mummy..mummy lg..and they sat near me..playing my head and touching my body..ok lar tue..the worries came when they started doing it to others..alahaiiii..seriously, i know what i read but i dunno what i read..haaa..faham?? hahahahaah..right after i gave salam, straightly i bulllaaaat mata pandang diorg..both were stunned..and i marah lar them..adoiii..letih tau jd mummy garang nie..jiwa dan hati kacau dan terganggu...

While waiting for the time to terawikh, the surau called an ustaz to give ceramah on Nuzul Quran..it supposed to be for half on hour..but i think it was longer..hehe..and, the kids warmed up with few jemaah and making friends..adoiiii..why we should stay with the garang mummy if other people can smile and play with us?? i think that was what they both had in mind last nite..

And again, it's time for terawikh..so i brainwashed them..pesan, ugut all complete..and rayyan was like a nice boy, sitting there and very behave..aneen was being her own notti gal..adoii..at 1st she started playing with the chalks and the blackboard (surau nie punn kelas agama budak2 sekolah rendah yg kain merah tue..)..thou i warned her earlier dun play with the chalk aneen, it's dirty and poisoned..but since the thing can make them ralit, i juz let them be lar..main lar aneen..lps nie i'll was your hand..

Not long after that and my nightmare began..buhsan giler rupanya main dgn chalk and blackboard tue..so they started running straight in the two saf..ya allah..i can't wait to finish this 2 rakaat terawikh..the moment i gave my salam, i heard a lady shouting, "apa lari-lari nie?? tak tau ker orang tgh sembahyang??" huhhh..amik ko..i looked at the lady..another lady was holding aneen and saying to her, "pergi kat mak, duduk kat mak.." nicely..unlike the shouted one..i straightly bukak kain, take my things and them and we went out from the hall..

So i stayed outside the hall..also got jemaah praying there..we also cannot go down because, there also got jemaah down there near the stairs..and i juz sat there with the kids..simpan mrh tue utk makcik tue and kept marah the kids..and this one nice lady tny asked me do u want to pray?? i said blh jugak..because at the moment, his son was sleeping on the mat..so she moved her son and gave place to me..i warn the kids, "Duduk diam..kalau tidak sleep dalam toilet malam nie.."

Finally i got the chance to finish my terawikh..alhamdulillah..while i was praying, i heard them talking..yes, i do heard them..hahaha..khusyuk?? what is that?? "aneen..opah mana??" "opah kat dalam.." "where??" "kat dalam.." and my eyes saw ayyen got up and on his way to the pray hall tadi, straightly i stopped sembahyang and tarikh ayyen..he cried..NO WAY i'm gonna let them to go into that hall again!! so there goes my terawikh and withir for last night..

As for that shouted lady, TAK..DIA TAK TAU..DIA BARU 3 TAHUN..KALAU DIA TAU, SAYA DH BAWAK DIA SEMBAHYANG SINCE DAY 1 LG..

Mak was really tak puas hati..she kept repeating what the lady said.."mak x kenal siapa dia..sebelum nie x ada punn..siapa entah dia..esok mak nk cari.." hahahahaha..emo seorang opah..and mak also said, "mak punn marah jugak budak2 dulu..tp bukan mcm tue.." hahahahaha..

And i'm thinking of bringing them again tonite..hahahahaha..bukan nk sembahyang punn, tp saja nk buat that lady hangin x tentu pasal..boleh??

Down here i quoted some hadiths on the matter..


Dari Abdullah bin Syidad dari ayahnya berkata, "Pada suatu ketika Rasulullah keluar untuk mengerjakan solat Zuhur atau Asar, beliau membawa cucunya Hasan atau Husein, lalu maju ke depan dan meletakkan cucunya kemudian bertakbir. Ketika sujud, beliau sujud lama sekali hingga terangkat kepalaku. Terlihat olehku, ternyata sang cucu sedang berada di punggung Rasulullah, maka aku pun kembali sujud. Setelah selesai solat, para jamaah bertanya, ‘Wahai Rasulullah, lama sekali Anda sujud hingga kami mengira bahawa telah terjadi sesuatu atau wahyu sedang diturunkan kepadamu.’ Rasulullah menjawab, 'Semua itu tidak terjadi, melainkan ketika itu cucuku sedang berada di punggungku dan aku tidak mahu mengganggunya hingga dia merasa puas bermain-main." (HR Ahmad, An-Nasa`i, dan Hakim)

Dalam riwayat yang lain dijelaskan;

Hadis riwayat Abu Hurairah Radhiyallahu 'anhu : ia berkata:Bahawa Nabi saw bersabda: Apabila salah seorang dari kalian menjadi imam, maka hendaknya ia memperingan solatnya, kerana di antara mereka ada anak kecil, orang tua, orang lemah dan orang sakit. Bila solat sendirian, maka soatlah sekehendak hatinya

(HR Bukhari)

Begitu pula, beliau saw pernah meringankan bacaan dalam solatnya, ketika beliau mendengar tangisan anak kecil;

Abi Qatadah Radhiyallahu 'anhu mengatakan bahawa Nabi saw bersabda, "Aku sedang mengerjakan solat dan mahu memperpanjangnya, namun aku mendengar tangis anak kecil. Lalu, aku ringkas (ringankan) solatku, kerana aku tidak senang untuk menyusahkan ibunya."

(HR Bukhari).

Bahkan, Amr bin Salamah, yang ketika itu berusia 7 tahun, menjadi imam untuk solat berjamaah.

Dari Jabir bin Abdillah bahawa Amr bin Salamah radhiyallahu a''nhu berkata, "Aku telah mengimami solat jamaah di masa Rasulullah saw sedangkan usiaku saat itu baru tujuh tahun. (HR Bukhari).


So daddy, boleh lar kita bawak lagi the kids tonite, kan??

Ramadhan and Rayyan

Now we muslims are in the fasting month..alhamdulillah, so far i still hasn't missed my fasting..thou it gives me unease feeling inside my belly - due for few days already for my monthly-best-friend's visit..cuak k..cuak yang teramat nie..

All this while, when it comes to month of Ramadhan, it always remind me of my dear brother, Ramadhan..when he was small, he was so happy everytime he heard his name mentioned on tv..it's like, he's the celebrity of the year..pagi Ramadhan, tghari Ramadhan, petang Ramadhan, and malam also Ramadhan..being a small naive boy really enjoiced his moment there..and only slowly when he grew up, he starts to think that during Ramadhan, u have to fast.and when he became older, he also learns that, during Ramadhan, straightly for one month, he need to be an Imam for terawikh - which is a big thing for our apak's big heart..hehe..

well..enough of Ramadhan - he's in Jakarta now..pursuing his degree..so this is the 1st Ramadhan Ramadhan is not with us..but, it's Jakarta only..i think my mak thinks that its like from here to Perlis kot, because every day she's checking on him..hehehe..anak manja...

And as i'm become older, i got to know that, there's another thing that u should know during Ramadhan..there's a special gate of heaven which allows fasting people in Ramadan to enter..
The gate of heaven which allows fasting people in Ramadan to enter..

Shal bin Sa'ad reported the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said: "Paradise (Jannah) has a door called Rayyan (the quencher), which is preserved for those who observed fasting on the Day of Judgment. It will be announced, 'Where are those who observed fasting?' The door, Rayyan, will not be closed until the last one of them enters." (Bukhari and Muslim)

Yes..Rayyan..and so i was so in love with this name..i loves reading novels..reading the story, the characters and the names the writers gave to the characters gives me ideas on what to name my babies..hehe..whenever i like or think of a name, i'll jot it down somewhere and seek for the meaning..and the same thing happened when i came cross RAYYAN..so, i told myself, i'll have my baby named as Rayyan..

And i kept waiting..the idea of me having a kid of my own is one thing, but to get a baby, u do have to get married..alahai..lemahnya rasa..it's not that its hard to get married..hahahahah..basically, we girls don't need to kumpul duit hantaran..juz go and pilih kain, buat baju, duduk diam jer lar kan..takde masalah..but to get the one yang akan kena kumpul duit hantaran tue was a major problem..hahahahhaa..(daddy..no offence..juz keep reading..) hey..it's not easy to know whether he's the one or not ok..and it's not for a day, then u'll get a new one the other day..manede cantu...

So i waited..and waited..and waited..until one day, a news from mak really hit me.."wan nyah dapat cucu lelaki, anak abg du..nama dia Rayyan.." Aaaaaaaaaa?? o know..not rayyan..pls..not that name..Arrrrrrrghhhhhhhh!!!..wan nyah is a wife of apak's cousin and mak's best friend..and abg du is my 2nd cousin..a'ah..kalau ikut hubungan tue mcm dh saudara jauh..but dun forget that i also mentioned, she's one of mak's best friends..meaning, we all always met..now and then..aduhh..

Seriously i got so frustrated..i told mak, "Deng suka nama tue..deng dh plan nk guna nama tue.." mak asked me for the meaning..and i told her..and she said, "guna jer lar.." hahahaha..i juz laughed..when to use, god knows...

And alhamdulillah, i got a girl as my 1st..i want a girl..too many boys/guys/men inside the house..i need a girl..i need to share my interest and my stories, that only we girls know and undertand..so i still kept the name Rayyan..tak apa..ambik lar siapa nak..tp i'll make sure one day i'll have my own Rayyan..

It's a well known story telling, i don't have to wait long till i got pregnant, AGAIN..and i do hope, this time, i'll get a boy..so i could Rayyan him..hahahahha..god listened to my prays..i got a boy..unlike the 1st one, we named her immediately after she was born (there's a hadith saying we should name the baby right after born)..this time we waited till seventh day (its a sunnah Rasulullah)..mak still remember that i wanted to name my boy, Rayyan..she mentioned about it before i delivered..she said, she told mak long about the name..hehe..obviously, she also likes the name..hehe..

Yeah..so we named our boy Raja Dzia Rayyan Irtiza..he was born on 2nd week of Syawal..hehe..NO!! we had Ramadhan already..that doesn't mean we want Syawal..

Rayyan..or ayyen..we juz hope that he'll be as wise as his name..insyaallah...

Rayyan and the meanings that i browsed..

Rayyan M Luxuriant, One of The Gates of Paradise

Origin : Arabic - Atmosphere, galaxy, the heavens
Origin : Persian - Fragrant herb, sweet scented herb


People name their children to distinguish them from others. The baby must be named on the seventh day. According to a Hadith a child must be named promptly on birth. The baby name must be meaningful. "You will be called by your name on the day of judgment" this is another reason why it is important to chose a baby name with good meaning.

Selamat Menghabiskan Puasa All...
p/s all - and wan nyah was so irritating..everytime she heard us calling Rayyan, she'll asked, "Rayyan?? mcm nama cucu i ker??" again and again - YES!! tapi x ada kena mengena dengan cucu u..hahahaa..if i may add, this Rayyan is a lot cuter and slimmer than your Rayyan..hahahaha..gila emo seorang ibu aku nie..she's not forgot it because of her age..she juz couldn't care less..yeah..so do i..
