Things That Eventually Disappear In Our Life Time

The Post Office
Get ready to imagine a world without the post office. They are so deeply in financial trouble that there is probably no way to sustain it long term. Email, Fed Ex, and UPS have just about wiped out the minimum revenue needed to keep the post office alive. Most of your mail every day is junk mail and bills. I still remember the time on festive season I received greeting cards from friends all over the place. Oh I miss those times. Now I received only E-card or SMS/MMS greetings. This probably true that post office will wipe out from the surface. 

The Cheque
Britain is already laying the groundwork to do away with checks by 2018. It costs the financial system billions of dollars a year to process checks. Plastic cards and online transactions will lead to the eventual demise of the check. This plays right into the death of the post office. If you never paid your bills by mail and never received them by mail, the post office would absolutely go out of business. I never have my cheque book but to transfer a lump of big figure I usually use bank's cheque/bank draft. My old folks still using cheque to make a transaction that involve large figure.  

The newspaper
The younger generation simply doesn't read the newspaper. They certainly don't subscribe to a daily delivered print edition. That may go the way of the milkman and the laundry man. As for reading the paper online, get ready to pay for it. The rise in mobile Internet devices and e-readers has caused all the newspaper and magazine publishers to form an alliance. They have met with Apple, Amazon, and the major cell phone companies to develop a model for paid subscription services.This is happening now. Major newspaper publisher in Malaysia now implementing the online newspaper. Hmm, how we gonna wrap our things when we're moving out to another house? Every now and then, the newspaper paper provides great service to the household not only limited to just reading it.

The book

You say you will never give up the physical book that you hold in your hand and turn the literal pages. I said the same thing about downloading music from iTunes. I wanted my hard copy CD. But I quickly changed my mind when I discovered that I could get albums for half the price without ever leaving home to get the latest music. The same thing will happen with books. You can browse a bookstore online and even read a preview chapter before you buy. And the price is less than half that of a real book. And think of the convenience! Once you start flicking your fingers on the screen instead of the book, you find that you are lost in the story, can't wait to see what happens next, and you forget that you're holding a gadget instead of a book. Muslim can now download the holy book of Al-Quran in the tablet or smart phone. 

The land line telephone

Unless you have a large family and make a lot of local calls, you don't need it anymore. Most people keep it simply because they've always had it. But you are paying double charges for that extra service. All the cell phone companies will let you call customers using the same cell provider for no charge against your minutes. Same goes to the public land line telephone. I wonder who are still using them? Oh the advertiser..

The Music
This is one of the saddest parts of the change story. The music industry is dying a slow death. Not just because of illegal downloading. It's the lack of innovative new music being given a chance to get to the people who would like to hear it. Greed and corruption is the problem. The record labels and the radio conglomerates are simply self-destructing. Over 40% of the music purchased today is "catalog items," meaning traditional music that the public is familiar with. Older established artists. This is also true on the live concert circuit. To explore this fascinating and disturbing topic further, check out the book, "Appetite for Self-Destruction" by Steve Knopper, and the video documentary, "Before the Music Dies." 

The Television

Revenues to the networks are down dramatically. Not just because of the economy. People are watching TV and movies streamed from their computers. And they're playing games and doing lots of other things that take up the time that used to be spent watching TV. Prime time shows have degenerated down to lower than the lowest common denominator. Cable rates are skyrocketing and commercials run about every 4 minutes and 30 seconds. I say good riddance to most of it. It's time for the cable companies to be put out of our misery.. Let the people choose what they want to watch online and through Netflix. I don't buy this, people will always need television. The only part that change is the outlook.

Cukup-cukup lah

Bulan ni memang buat poket aku berlubang besar. Last week, kereta aku over heat lepas je anta anak aku ke Nursery. Nasib baik dia over heated selepas tu..kalau sebelum tu memang masak.

Problem kat cooling water system kereta aku ni memang sejak aku beli kereta tu lagi, sejak 3 ke 4 tahun lepas. A few months after beli tu, kereta aku over heated on the way nak ke Genting (time tu abang aku pinjam). Expansion tank pecah. Abang aku setelkan. Orang duit banyak takde hal. Dia kene cekik sampai RM 1,200. Padahal expansion tank kalu tuka dekat kedai yang selalu aku hantar baru RM 700. Sejak dari tu memang aku dah perasan, yang piping dia pun dah mula ada rusty or karat-karat dekat joint. 

And then last year, kereta aku dapat satu simptom di mana bila kau over rev or bila naik bukit enjin akan lebih panas. Aku anta kereta ke workshop di Gombak, buruk workshop dia, credit card facility pun takde, tapi kat dalam semua BMW, Mercedes dan seumpamanya la. Ada la jugak kereta-kereta kebanyakan. Workshop recommended by forummer, susah jugak nak cari location for the first timer. Aku suruh die setelkan ada crack sikit kat expansion tank. Dia tuka expansion tank baru, servis radiator, tuka thermostat semua dalam RM 1,200. Tapi masalah cooling water system tu still tak setel tapi simptom tu hilang. Then aku bawak pulak pegi workshop kat Kelana Jaya, recommended by my friend. Mechanic dia cakap ini kene tuka the whole system (including radiator, hose semua) baru boleh setel. Dia quote harga paling kurang pun RM 2k lebih or maybe mahal lagi tapi tak sampai RM 3k. Aku suruh dia hold dulu. 

Last week selepas kejadian tu, aku terus suruh driver towing tu hantar kereta aku ke kedai yang selalu aku hantar kat USJ. Petang datang amik bayar tokey dia RM 1950. Problem solved. Radiator baru, hose sampai 5 jenis sume tukar baru, thermostat baru, almost the whole system la baru kecuali expansion tank tak tuka, dia kata OK lagi.

Bernostalgia aku kejap, before ni kereta yang sama buat hal kat air-cond system. tetiba air-cond tak sejuk. Kacau betul la. Kebetulan aku dekat Bangi time tu bawak kete ke satu kedai corner lot, besar bole tahan jugak. Budak malay sume. Aku suruh dia check kenapa, abes sume die geledah, ke compressor ke relay board just nak tau ada current ke tak pegi ke compressor tu. Susah payah aku tengok dia check kete aku tu. Lepas sejam dia come out dengan solution, tuka compressor baru. So dia quote Calsonic RM 2,200 siap pasang. Aku suruh dia hold, sebab takde duit. Malam tu terus bukak forum, cari satu india yang buat servis air-cond. Workshop dekat PJ belakang Shell. Aku bawak kete aku dia bukak hood, terus check compressor pakai some sort of multi-meter. Dia kata takyah tuka the whole compressor, just one part of it. Dia quote RM 400 je. Setel problem aku. 

Last weekend, aku anta another car of mine ke satu workshop kat Putrajaya, owner malay, mechanic malay, sume malay kot. Suruh service and check kenapa enjin gegar. Dia tanya nak pakai minyak apa, aku kata minyak apa-apa lah. Kereta ni dah lebih satu dekad umur dia, dalam 13 tahun kot. Dia kata ni kene tuka mounting, aku cakap dekat dia kalu sure itu cause dia so tuka la mounting tu. Bila dah siap dia call aku cakap ni kene tuka throttle body pulak kalau tak gegar tu tak ilang. Damn it. Malas aku nak bertekak aku cakap takyah buat. Aku pegi amik and baya RM 620 including RM 200 manpower. Peh, aku dah lama tak pernah nampak manpower charge kat dalam resit kalu bende kecik2 macam ni. Ini sampai RM 200. Last 2 months aku anta kereta yang sama servis kat workshop cina dekat-dekat opis tak sampai RM 100 and takde manpower charge pun. oil engine RM 65, oil filter RM 15 and bulb lamp RM 5. Itu aje. Yang workshop ni, oil engine RM 103 (Petronas Syntium), oil filter RM 15, gearbox oil RM 30, 4 mounting bracket RM 250 dan selebihnya manpower charge. Selama ni aku anta kete kat usual workshop aku takde charge manpower pun. Haha..

And kenapa pulak engkau nak pakai Petronas Synthium kat kereta aku yang dah lebih satu dekad tu? Damn it betul la. Bende ni macam kau beli satu selipar Crocs yang harga RM 100 semata-mata untuk pegi pasar.

Lepas ni memang aku tak anta situ lagi dah. Tobat!

Murah Hati Yang Mahal

Abah singgah solat di sebuah surau. Usai solat seorang budak menghampiri abah. Sebuah tabung derma dihulurnya. Raut wajah dan gaya pakaian budak itu meyakinkan abah bahawa dia adalah anak yatim yang mewakili sekolahnya memohon sumbangan. Abah menghulurkan derma.

Di suatu sudut beranda surau kelihatan seorang pakcik penarik beca sedang berehat melepaskan penat.

Budak itu lalu menghampiri pakcik itu dan menghulurkan tabung derma kepadanya.

Pakcik penarik beca menyeluk saku seluarnya yang lusuh. Sekeping note berwarna merah sepuluh ringgit dikeluarkan lalu dimasukkan ke dalam tabung derma tersebut.


Budak itu mengucapkan terima kasih seraya berpaling untuk pergi. Tetapi pakcik itu memberi isyarat supaya menunggu. Pakcik menyeluk poket seluarnya yang sebelah lagi.

Dia mengeluarkan beberapa note kertas berwarna biru dan hijau lalu dimasukkan kesemuanya ke dalam poket baju melayu budak itu.

“Ini hok mu buat beli makanan.”

Abah kemudian menghampiri pakcik itu, sambil bertanya, “Berapo pendapatan pakcik sehari?”

Dia berkata, “Tak tentu! Kade-kade ado, kade-kade tak dok.”

Tanya abah lagi, “Bakpo pakcik sedekah semua duit pakcik kepada budak itu?”

Jawabnya, “Budak tu anak yatim. Berjalan kaki jauh, lapar. Pakcik tak pe, ada beca, boleh kayuh lagi.”

Subhanallah... Dia jauh lebih murah hati daripada abah.

Abah mula berasa sebak.

“Kalu gitu mari ikut ambo pergi makan.” sambil abah memegang tangannya.

“Hari ni pakcik posa.” jawabnya perlahan.

Abah tidak mampu bersuara lagi..

Nota: Murah hati yang mahal nilainya ialah apabila sanggup menyumbang harta kepada orang yang memerlukan, sedangkan dia sendiri memerlukannya. Berbeza daripada murah hati yang sanggup menyumbang harta sama ada kepada orang yang memerlukan, dalam keadaan dia sendiri tidak memerlukannya..

Kelebihan orang yang murah hati..

1. Pemiliknya akan mendapat kasih sayang dan redha Allah SWT.

2. Bukti kesempurnaan akal, lapang dada dan besar jiwanya.

3. Akan mendapat pertolongan malaikat.

4. Semua manusia akan terdetik hatinya untuk membantu dan bergabung dengan pemilik sifat ini.

5. Seseorang yang berusaha menanamkan sifat ini dengan cara membiasakan dan memupuknya akan mendapat pahala yang besar dan kedudukan yang tinggi di sisi Allah SWT.

6. Ia adalah salah satu sifat Allah SWT dan para wali-Nya.

7. Ia dapat menyatukan hati dan menebarkan kasih sayang antara manusia.

8. Melenyapkan kebencian, kedengkian dan dapat meluluhkan hati.

Sumbangan Lebuhraya Rakyat

Seperti yang telah diketahui umum, kerajaan negeri Kelantan akan mengexecute satu projek lebuhraya rakyat dari Kuala Krai sampai Kota Bharu yang sepanjang 73KM di mana akan menelan belanja sebanyak MYR 25 Billion.

Lebuhraya ini sepatutnya di execute oleh kerajaan pusat (Kerajaan Barisan Nasional) seperti dalam RMK -5 dan RMK -6, tapi habuk pun tadak.

MYR 1.5 juta telah disumbangkan untuk projek ini dari syarikat-syarikat yang berpengkalan di Kelantan (Anak Kelantan sendiri membantu meringankan beban kerajaan negeri). Sumbangan terbesar dari individu adalah sebanyak MYR 100K. 

Kepada sesiapa yang taknak terlepas peluang buat kebajikan, boleh lah berbuat demikian dengan menyalurkan sumbangan kepada di bawah:

No Akaun : 0303 6010 0030 31
Bank : Bank Islam (BIMB)
Nama : Rowstead Systems SDN BHD yang akan dikenali sebagai Baldah Toyyibah(Prasarana) Kelantan SDN BHD, anak syarikat milik penuh PMBK.


Failed Engineering Implementation

Please be careful in choosing contractor for your projects. Some of them are really idiots. Those who works as engineer especially in design must have recognized the errors in the pictures below.

When some engineering had been revised by consultants or client, they usually will marked the error with 'cloud' to revise that part. Look what happened to the ceiling..Ohh man.

Below is the most epic failed. Haha..

What an idiot!

Satu Jawapan Untuk Tiga Soalan

Cerita ni memang selalu aku duk dengar dari bangku sekolah sampai la dah keje skang ni. Saje nak refresh kenangan lalu so aku post dekat sini untuk dikongsikan ramai-ramai. Cerita ni sebenarnya ada banyak versi, ini adalah salah satu darinya, tapi mesej yang hendak disampaikan tetap sama.

Ada seorang pemuda yang lama sekolah di luar negeri, kembali ke tanah air. Sesampainya di rumah ia meminta kepada orang tuanya untuk mencari seorang guru agama,kiyai atau sesiapa sahaja yang boleh menjawab 3 pertanyaannya.

Akhirnya orang tua pemuda itu mendapatkan orang tersebut, seorang kiyai.

Pemuda: Anda siapa? Dan apakah bisa menjawab pertanyaan- pertanyaan saya?

Kiyai : Saya hamba Allah dan dengan izin-Nya saya akan menjawab pertanyaan anda.

Pemuda: Anda yakin? Sedangkan Profesor dan ramai orang yang pintar tidak mampu menjawab pertanyaan saya.

Kiyai : Saya akan mencuba sejauh kemampuan saya.

Pemuda: Saya ada 3 pertanyaan:- 1. Kalau memang Tuhan itu ada,tunjukan wujud Tuhan kepada saya. 2. Apakah yang dinamakan takdir. 3. Kalau syaitan diciptakan dari api kenapa dimasukan ke neraka yang dibuat dari api, tentu tidak menyakitkan buat syaitan. Sebab mereka memiliki unsur yang sama. Apakah Tuhan tidak pernah berfikir sejauh itu?

Tiba-tiba kyai tersebut menampar pipi pemuda tadi dengan keras.

Pemuda (sambil menahan sakit): Kenapa anda marah kepada saya? 

Kiyai : Saya tidak marah...Tamparan itu adalah jawaban saya atas 3 pertanyaan yang anda ajukan kepada saya.

Pemuda: Saya sungguh-sungguh tidak mengerti.

Kiyai : Bagaimana rasanya tamparan saya?

Pemuda: Tentu saja saya merasakan sakit.

Kiyai : Jadi anda percaya bahwa sakit itu ada?

Pemuda: Ya!

Kiyai : Tunjukan pada saya wujud sakit itu!

Kiyai : Itulah jawaban pertanyaan pertama...kita semua merasakan kewujudan Tuhan tanpa mampu melihat.

Kiyai : Apakah tadi malam anda bermimpi akan ditampar oleh saya?

Pemuda: Tidak.

Kiyai : Apakah pernah terfikir oleh anda akan menerima sebuah tamparan dari saya hari ini?

Pemuda: Tidak.

Kiyai : Itulah yang dinamakan takdir.

Kiyai : Terbuat dari apa tangan yang saya gunakan untuk menampar anda?

Pemuda: Kulit.

Kiyai : Terbuat dari apa pipi anda?

Pemuda: Kulit.

Kiyai : Bagaimana rasanya tamparan saya?

Pemuda: Sakit.

Kiyai : Walaupun syaitan dijadikan dari api dan neraka juga terbuat dari api, jika Tuhan menghendaki maka neraka akan menjadi tempat yang menyakitkan untuk syaitan.

Don'ts During Interview

1. Being late
While occasional lateness may be excused in other situations, it's often a deal-breaker in a job interview. Hiring managers assume that you're on your best behavior while interviewing, so if you aren't on time for the interview, they'll assume you'll be unreliable if they hire you. Always allow more time than you'll need to travel so that you have a buffer in case something goes wrong.

2. Badmouthing a former employer
As tempting as it might be to explain that you left your last job because your boss was crazy or that your previous company was mismanaged and corrupt, sharing these feelings will reflect badly on you. Rightly or wrongly, the interviewing convention is that you don't badmouth a previous employer. Hiring managers are looking for evidence that you know what is and isn't appropriate to say in business situations. 

3. Not being prepared with example that illustrate why you'd excel at the job
If you claim that you excel at strategizing or that you're an innovative genius, but then aren't able to give specific examples of how you've used these skills, interviewers aren't going to give much credence to your claims. Make sure to come to the interview prepared with specific examples from your past that show how you've turned your skills into real accomplishments at work.

4. Telling an off-color joke
Interviewers are scrutinizing you for evidence of what kind of judgment you have. No matter how friendly your interviewer might seem, inappropriate jokes or off-color language have no place in a job interview. You'll call your judgment into question, and will make your interviewer wonder what you'll be like when your guard is down after you have the job.

5. Not asking any questions
You might be spending eight hours a day in this job, at this company, with this manager. Are you sure there's nothing you're wondering about? Interviewers want to know that you're interested in the details of the job, the department in which you'll be working, the supervisor's management style, and the culture of the organization. Otherwise, you're signaling that you're either not that interested or that you just haven't thought much about it. So come prepared with thoughtful, intelligent questions about the work you'd be doing. 

6. Sounding bitter
Job-searching is tough, and it's easy to feel discouraged. But if you sound even the tiniest bit bitter or negative about your job search or a previous employer, you'll turn off potential employers and almost guarantee that you won't get offers. No one wants to hire someone who seems angry or resentful.

7. Not being likeable
Interviewers are human and want to work with pleasant people. If you're unfriendly, arrogant, or rude, it won't matter how qualified you are; interviewers won't want to hire you. So be friendly and open, and show genuine interest in the people with whom you're talking. Don't feel you have to hide your personality, or be so formal that you become stiff or impersonal.

Lelaki Ini Lari Tak Mahu Berzina

Seorang pelajar Yaman yang tinggal di Arizona dipaksa untuk melakukan perzinaan oleh 5 pelajar Amerika Syarikat di apartmennya yang berdekatan dengan kampus tempat ia belajar.

Sebagaimana dilaporkan oleh Al Arabiya 13 Mei 12, lima perempuan itu merupakan teman satu fakulti memasuki apartemen tempat tinggal Isham As Syar’abi. Mereka berbogel setelah mengunci pintu apartmen untuk menghalangi pelajar Yaman tersebut melarikan diri.

Namun pemuda itu berjaya keluar dari apartmen setelah melompat melalui tingkap biliknya. Setelah keluar Isham segera melapor ke pos keselamatan terdekat hingga pengawal keselamatan itu  menangkap 5 pelajar tersebut.

Menurut hasil penyidikan, diketahui bahawa pelajar wanita itu telah berkali-kali mengajak Isham melakukan perzinaan. Namun pemuda Yaman itu menolaknya kerana menurutnya hal itu dilarang oleh agama jika tidak didasari oleh pernikahan.

Komen Weblog Ibnu Hasyim: Begitulah sikap seorang pemuda Islam tulin, ia tetap mengikuti peraturan yang diperintahkan kepadanya.  Ia tetap patuh kepada resepi atau menu oleh pencipta agama yang dianut itu.

Kerana Muhammad SAW, wakil pemberi peringatan penguatkuasaan itu, pernah mengingatkan  mengenai 7 Golongan Yang Mendapat Perlindungan ArashNya (hadiah istimewa dari Allah) di Akhirat, seperti yang dirawikan oleh Abu Hurairah. Rasul SAW itu berkata...
"Terdapat 7 golongan yang akan mendapat lindungan arasyNya pada hari yang tiada lindungan melainkan lindungan daripadaNya.
  • Pemimpin yang adil;
  • pemuda yang masanya dihabiskan untuk beribadah kepada Allah SWT;
  • seseorang yang hatinya terpaut pada masjid;
  • 2 lelaki yang berkasih sayang, bertemu dan berpisah kerana Allah SWT;
  • lelaki yang digoda oleh perempuan cantik dan berpengaruh untuk melakukan maksiat tetapi dia menolak dengan mengatakan Aku Takutkan Allah;
  • seseorang yang bersedekah dan menyembunyikannya sehingga tangan kanannya tidak mengetahui apa yang diberikan oleh tangan kirinya;
  • dan seseorang yang mengingati Allah ketika bersendirian sehinggakan mengalir air matanya kerana Allah SWT.”
(Riwayat Muslim)

Okey, mari kita hurai sikit..

Satu: Pemimpin atau Imam yang adil.
Ertinya, setiap pemimpin bertanggungjawab atas jagaannya. Ia akan dipersoalkan kembali di akhirat kelak. Perdana Menteri Malaysia tetap bertanggungjawab ke atas apa yang terjadi kepada rakyatnya. Senang susah, adil atau zalim (contohnya perlakuan terhadap peserta Bersih 3.0 baru-baru ini), zina buang bayi, segala macam maksiat, dasar pendidikan tempang dan lain-lain.

Oh, seronok sangatlah, kepada pemimpin-pemimpin yang adil, melaksanakan amanah dan hukum Allah SWT ke atas tadbirannya. Ia dapat hadiah ' Perlindungan ArashNya di Akhirat.' Begitu juga pemimpin-pemimpin lain, termasuk suami memimpin isteri atau isteri-isteri, isteri memimpin anak-anak, pimpinan yang diamanahkan tugas kepada mereka. Dan  sebagainya.

Dua: Pemuda yang membesar dalam ibadah kepada Allah.
Naungan Ilahi ini juga dijanjikan kepada lelaki dan perempuan yang sentiasa hidup atau membesar dalam ibadah kepada Allah. Bukan nanti tua baru nak ibadat. Ibadat dalam ertikata yang luas, ibadat khas dan ibadat umum. Sentiasa menyedari bahawa Allah melihat segala perbuatannya. Di mana segalanya di bawah kawalan dan naungan Ilahi.

Tiga: Lelaki yang hatinya sentiasa rindukan (teringat-ingatkan) rumah Allah.
Begitu jua bagi lelaki yang hatinya sentiasa rindukan rumah Allah. Tertunggu-tunggu setiap masa untuk beribadah di dalamnya. Baik untuk sembahyang wajib lima waktu setiap hari dan untuk ibadah lain.

Empat: Dua orang lelaki yang cinta mencintai kerana Allah bertemu dan berpisah kerana Al-Allah. Dalam satu hadis Rasulullah bersabda..

“Allah telah mengutuskan malaikat kepada seorang lelaki semasa dalam perjalanan untuk menziarahi saudaranya kerana Allah”.
Malaikat bertanya: “Nak kemana?”
Dijawab: “Aku mahu menziarah saudara ku… … ..”
Tanya malaikat lagi: Untuk apa?”
Lelaki itu menjawab: Tiada apa-apa tujuan.”
Ditanya lagi: “Apa hubungan dengan kamu?”
Lalu dijawab oleh lelaki itu:” Tiada apa-apa hubungan.”
Ditanya lagi: ” Apa budinya kepada kamu?”
Dijawab:”Tiada apa-apa pun.” Ditanya lagi:”
Apa tujuannya?” Lelaki itu menjawab:
"Aku mencintainya kerana Allah.” Berkata malaikat: sesungguhnya Allah telah mengutusku kepada mu untuk memberitahu bahawa kerana kecintaanmu kepadanya maka ALLAH telah mengizinkan kamu memasuki syurgaNYA.” (Riwayat Muslim)

Perasaan sayang dan kasih, atau cinta terhadap seseorang bukan kerana ada tujuan lain. Bukan untuk memikat anak gadisnya atau hartanya, sebaliknya hanya mengharap keredhaan Ilahi. Hanya kerana Allah hubungan ini dieratkan.

Lima: Lelaki apabila mengingati Allah bersendirian menitis airmatanya.
Hadirnya perasaan takut kepada Allah walaupun bersendirian sehingga menitis airmatanya. Ianya bukan saja-saja tetapi hadir dari hati yang menginsafi kebesaran Allah SWT.

Enam: Seorang lelaki yang dirangsang atau digoda oleh seorang perempuan berdarjat lagi cantik untuk berzina, lalu ia berkata: “Tidak! Aku takutkan Allah” (inni akhofullah)
Sesiapa yang takut untuk berbuat kesalahan, takut kepada Allah dan azab api neraka akan sentiasa mendapat perlindungan dariNYA, seperti kisah pemuda  di atas.

Tujuh: Lelaki yang bersedekah dan tidak pula dimegah-megahkannya.
Pemberian yang mengharapkan balasan dari Ilahi tidak akan diperbesar-besarkan. sebaliknya akan dilakukan secara tersembunyi. Sehingga digambarkan seolah-olah tangan yang kiri tidak mengetahui apa yang disedekahkan oleh tangan kanan. Lupakan kebaikan dan pemberian kita, sebaliknya banyak mengingatkan kesilapan dan kesalah diri kita terhadap Allah dan orang lain.

11 Jenis Manusia Didoa Malaikat

PERCAYA kepada malaikat adalah antara rukun iman . Ada malaikat yang ditugaskan berdoa kepada makhluk manusia dan sudah tentu seseorang yang didoakan malaikat mendapat keistimewaan. Dalam
hidup, kita sangat memerlukan bantuan rohani dalam menghadapi ujian yang kian mencabar.

Bantuan dan sokongan malaikat sangat diperlukan. Kali ini penulis ingin menyenaraikan antara jenis manusia yang akan menerima doa malaikat.  Ketika itulah sewaktu kita menghadapi masalah, kerumitan, keperluan dan bimbingan, bukan saja kita perlukan kekuatan doa dari lidah, tetapi juga sokongan malaikat.

Antara orang yang mendapat doa malaikat ialah:

1. Orang yang tidur dalam keadaan bersuci.

Rasulullah s.a.w bersabda, maksudnya: "Sesiapa yang tidur dalam keadaan suci, malaikat akan bersamanya di dalam pakaiannya. Dia tidak akan bangun hingga malaikat berdoa: "Ya Allah, ampunilah hamba-Mu si fulan kerana tidur dalam keadaan suci."

2. Orang yang sedang duduk menunggu waktu solat.

Rasulullah s.a.w bersabda maksudnya: "Tidaklah salah seorang antara kalian yang duduk menunggu solat, selama ia berada dalam keadaan suci, kecuali kalangan malaikat akan mendoakannya: 'Ya Allah, ampunilah ia. Ya Allah sayangilah ia.'"

3. Orang yang berada di saf depan solat berjemaah.

Rasulullah s.a.w bersabda, maksudnya: "Sesungguhnya Allah dan kalangan malaikat-Nya berselawat ke atas (orang) yang berada pada saf depan." 

4. Orang yang menyambung saf pada solat berjemaah (tidak membiarkan kekosongan di dalam saf).

Rasulullah s.a.w bersabda, maksudnya: "Sesungguhnya Allah dan kalangan malaikat selalu berselawat kepada orang yang menyambung saf."

5. Kalangan malaikat mengucapkan 'amin' ketika seorang imam selesai membaca al-Fatihah.

Rasulullah s.a.w bersabda maksudnya: "Jika seorang imam membaca...(ayat terakhir al-Fatihah sehingga selesai), ucapkanlah oleh kamu 'aamiin' kerana sesiapa yang ucapannya itu bertepatan dengan ucapan malaikat, dia akan diampuni dosanya yang lalu."

6. Orang yang duduk di tempat solatnya selepas melakukan solat.

Rasulullah s.a.w bersabda, maksudnya: "Kalangan malaikat akan selalu berselawat kepada satu antara kalian selama ia ada di dalam tempat solat, di man a ia melakukan solat."

7. Orang yang melakukan solat Subuh dan Asar secara berjemaah.

Rasulullah s.a.w bersabda maksudnya: "Kalangan malaikat berkumpul pada saat solat Subuh lalu malaikat (yang menyertai hamba) pada malam hari (yang sudah bertugas malam hari hingga Subuh) naik (ke langit) dan malaikat pada siang hari tetap tinggal.

"Kemudian mereka berkumpul lagi pada waktu solat Asar dan malaikat yang ditugaskan pada siang hari (hingga solat Asar) naik (ke langit) sedangkan malaikat yang bertugas pada malam hari tetap tinggal lalu Allah bertanya kepada mereka: "Bagai man a kalian meninggalkan hamba-Ku?"

Mereka menjawab: 'Kami datang sedangkan mereka sedang melakukan solat dan kami tinggalkan mereka sedangkan mereka sedang melakukan solat, ampunilah mereka pada hari kiamat.'"

8. Orang yang mendoakan saudaranya tanpa pengetahuan orang yang didoakan.

Rasulullah s.a.w bersabda, maksudnya: "Doa seorang Muslim untuk saudaranya yang dilakukan tanpa pengetahuan orang yang didoakannya adalah doa yang akan dikabulkan. Pada kepalanya ada seorang malaikat yang menjadi wakil baginya, setiap kali dia berdoa untuk saudaranya dengan sebuah kebaikan, malaikat itu berkata 'aamiin dan engkau pun mendapatkan apa yang ia dapatkan.'"

9. Orang yang membelanjakan harta (infak).

Rasulullah s.a.w bersabda, maksudnya: "Tidak satu hari pun di man a pagi harinya seorang hamba ada padanya kecuali dua malaikat turun kepadanya, satu antara kedua-duanya berkata: 'Ya Allah, berikanlah ganti bagi orang yang berinfak...' "

10. Orang yang sedang makan sahur.

Rasulullah s.a.w bersabda maksudnya: "Sesungguhnya Allah dan kalangan malaikat-Nya berselawat kepada orang yang sedang makan sahur."

11. Orang yang sedang menjenguk (melawat) orang sakit.

Rasulullah s.a.w bersabda, maksudnya: "Tidaklah seorang mukmin menjenguk saudaranya kecuali Allah akan mengutus 70,000 malaikat untuknya yang akan berselawat kepadanya di waktu siang hingga petang dan di waktu malam hingga Subuh."

Itulah antara mereka yang mendapat doa malaikat. WAllahu'alam.Semoga kita
termasuk dan tersenarai sama. InsyaAllah

Bende Ni Pun Nak Analyze

Diwartakan, sebuah syarikat Kinetic Analysis Corp (Real-life firm okay) yang memang specialized dalam "disaster-cost prediction and assessment" telah menganggarkan jumlah kerugian di Manhattan yang disebabkan oleh penjajahan Chitauri adalah bernilai lebih kurang $160 Billion. 

Siap boleh tanya lagi, siapa yang nak menanggung kerugian tu semua..haha. Diaorang ni dah macam takde keje nak buat sangat kan..ye lah, baru-baru ni pun takde disaster yang diberitakan, so diaorang ni memang takde keje la kot..

Siapa yang tak tahu, ini adalah dari movie The Avengers yang tengah meletop skang ni. Tapi ada ke pembaca blog ni yang tak tahu pasal movie ni? Tak masuk di akal..

Thank You Harmony

Since I left my WD player at my parent's, someone has ruined the remote control. Well the usual suspects would be either my son or both my nephews all under the age of 3-Year old. I could not blame them for their crime.

It's killing me though because nobody selling the remote control. I have looked everywhere for it, at the Low Yat, local market website in Malaysia and every shopping complex I visited and dropped by at the computer store. No one! I could order from WD itself actually but the shipment only within U.S. I could not watch any movies through this WD again without the remote. 

Initially I found an advertisement in mudah.my selling the Logitech Harmony Universal Remote. I called him and confirmed the item was RM220. I browsed lelong then and found it with cheaper price. Only RM170. Without further ado, I grabbed it.

The result now I can watch my movies through my WD and disposed my other remote controls as well. Not disposed la, just keep them away in some drawers in my house. Why need 3 remote controls if you just need 1 only for your Astro, TV and WD. Intelligence as well, you can teach it how to control your device in case the model is not in the database.

Total solution as Sales Engineers call it.

21 Pictures You Won't Believe Aren't Photoshopped

#21. You Are Now Ascending to the Fourth Circle of Hell ...

#20. The First Name the Aliens Will See ...

I bet you will open google maps and try to find this word.

#19. This Makes Us Dizzy No Matter How Long We Look



The Dumb and Dumber

It weeps my heart really bad when I went through comments on one issue that had been put up on facebook. It was about Datuk Zulkifli Nordin has urged government to ban one book that promotes mixed marriages in Malaysia. He said the book sending a message that muslim women can marry non-muslim men. I do not know whether it’s true or not about the book he said.

Deep down inside me, I was mad with some non-muslims’ comments about the issue. Please, if you do not know anything about Islam, do not talk about it. You can led the dumb even dumber especially the dumb muslim. It makes me even angrier when I read a muslim’s comment like he knows everything about Islam but the fact is he doesn’t.  Let me quote some of dumb non-muslim:

Louis Denis: “no such thing that non-muslim married to muslim need to become muslim…it’s not necessary..after all there is only one god…”

More dumb comments:

Thanusya Shanmuganathan: “so stupid..ridiculous..where’s the right to religion? I thought we Malaysians can choose our religion??no meh?they want to marry whoever let them do it la..”

Joey Shawn: “Excuse me..open your eyes and look around the world, only Malaysia has the restriction with non-muslim married to muslim must convert lor!! Pls..so antique better you send yourself in to museum okay. What’s wrong with muslim married non-muslim??? So long they respect each other any religion also fine. Which religion teaching u to be BAD?? Unless u from cult la!!

Seriously I don’t get the last sentence from Joey Shawn. Huhu.

In Malaysia regulations, before we getting married, we need to attend a 2 days class for marriages course. In this class they will teach almost everything about marriage to prepare us for it, so the marriage is legal by Islam law and blessed by Allah.   

When I read a comment form a muslim that shared the same ideology with the non-muslims I mentioned above. I reckon that he must have not married yet or no idea what he has learned in the class. In the class you will learn about the conditions that make your marriage legal by the law of Islam. Let me recite some of them here.

        The pillars of solemnizations 
  1.  Groom – a man 
  2.  Bride – a woman 
  3.  Wali (Guardian) 
  4.  Two men for witness 
  5.  Ijab and Kabul
Conditions for groom-to-be
  1. Muslim 
  2. Not being force to 
  3. A real guy  
  4. Not having 4 wives prior to the solemnization 
  5. Not in pilgrimage mode or haj mode 
  6. Not a ‘mahram’ to the bride (means he is marry-able by Islam law) 
  7. Confidence that the bride is not ‘mahram’. 
  8. Fit to settle down 
  9. No marriage restrictions

Conditions for bride-to-be
  1.  Muslim 
  2. A real woman 
  3. Not a ‘mahram’ to the grrom (means she is marry-able by Islam law) 
  4. Not a khunsa (two sex) 
  5. Not in pilgrimage mode or haj mode. 
  6. Not in idah mode (The periods when she has been divorced) 
  7. Not anyone’s wife.

Further, you moron also can refer to decision made by National Fatwa Council during the 18th Muzakarah which cited a Christian woman married to a muslim guy, hence their marriage is not legal by the Islam law. To those who can read malay, may continue your reading in this entry here.

And Islam never forbids its adherents to mixed marriages or interracial marriage if that what you call. A malay muslim guy can marry any woman of any races and vice versa provided the rules and conditions set forth are followed.

For the dumb non-muslims that cannot accept the Islam regulations, please marry a non-muslim and stop make any false accusations about Islam. For the dumb muslim that just happen to know this regulations, your spouse should convert to Islam prior to solemnization only if the spouse to be is a non-muslim. Datuk Zul also needs to make a clear statement about this. Don’t just simply make an arrogant statement.

Bikin Panas, Minah Islam Simpan Blog Pasal Bible

Tengah-tengah aku facebooking malam-malam ni, aku jumpa la minah ni punya link, so aku click nak usha page die..the latest status update die pasal die dah letak new entry kat blog-blog die. so aku terjah la blog-blog die.

Ah sudah..terperanjat aku salah satu link yang die tulis kat situ pasal Mega Site of Bible Prophecy Information (http://lilysahaja.logspot.com/) and then another one tu baru aku rasa betul blog die (http://thelilyonly.blogspot.com). Mula-mula agak konpius gak, dia ni islam ke kristian. Tapi baca blog dia ada plak tulis assalamualaikum pada setiap entry.

Aku dah rasa mula nak curiga dengan minah ni. Maybe die nak sebarkan dakyah kristianisasi secara senyap-senyap kat budak-budak melayu islam. Macam-macam berlegar dalam kepala hotak aku time tu. Rasa macam nak report kat Hasan Ali Akidah. Nak report kat Perkasa..macam-macam lagi.

Bila perati betul-betul kat address dia tu, aku rasa semacam. Tak pernah pulak aku dengar blog dari logspot.com. Maybe ni site baru yang nak tiru blogspot kot. 

Tanpa berpikir panjang aku pun betulkan ejaan tu dari logspot ke blogspot..so jadi la http://lilysahaja.blogspot.com/...

Bila page dah finish load...

Cinabeng betul minah ni..lenkali tulis la betul-betul address tu...Bikin panas betul la..

For Muslims Haters, Please Read

To all Islam haters out there..please read this carefully, you moron..

I liked the answer of the Germanium Muslim scholar when he was asked about terrorism and Islam. 

He said, "Who started the first world war? Muslims?..Who started the second world war? Muslims?..Who killed about 20 millions of Aborigines in Australia? Muslims?..Who sent the nuclear bombs of Hiroshima and Nagasaki? Muslims?..Who killed more that 100 millions of Indians in North America? Muslim?..Who killed more than 50 millions of Indians in South America? Muslims?..Who took about 180 millions of African people as slave and 88% of them died and was thrown in Atlantic Ocean? Muslims?..No, they were not muslims!

First of all, you have to define terrorism properly. If a non muslim do something bad, it is a crime but if a muslim commit same, he is terrorist. So first remove this double standard and then come to the point.

Things You Should Never Do at Work

  1. Say or write anything you wouldn't want plastered on the Yahoo home page, or in the hands of the SEC, FTC, DOJ, or IRS. You have zero expectation of privacy at work and should therefore assume that anything and everything is being recorded for all eternity and will come back to haunt you at the worst possible time. That includes emails, phone calls, even hallway or parking lot conversations.
  2. Over-apologize. We all make mistakes and it's always good to fess up, but in business, you can go too far and actually make matters worse. If it's a minor issue, just a quick "sorry about that" is fine. If it's a big screw-up, apologize in private, face-to-face. Look the guy in the eye, say your piece, and be done with it. If you want confirmation, then ask, "Are we good now?" Don't grovel, make promises you can't keep, or anything else. Just man-up and leave it alone.
  3. Take your smartphone to the bathroom. Hopeless addiction to smartphones, needing to stay connected 24x7, and being constantly pressed for time, do not belong in a place where flushes can be heard on the other end of the line or, God forbid, the thing can drop into something wet, white, and porcelain. Leave it in your pocket and, if it rings, have the good sense not to answer.
  4. Cross swords with your boss, your boss's boss, or any other boss. Too many of you just don't get how civilization, organization, or the lack of either - which we affectionately call the jungle - works. You simply don't square off with your boss or anyone in the chain of command. If you lose, you lose; if you win, you still lose. It'll end badly and reflect badly on you no matter how it goes down. If you want to know how to deal with a bad boss, click the link.
  5. Go looking for trouble. If you're in a bad mood or pissed off at somebody or something, walk it off or treat yourself to a nice greasy donut or something. If you go looking for trouble, however, I can almost guarantee you will find it and it won't end well for you. Don't pick fights, push buttons, or otherwise give anyone a hard time. It's called acting out, it's childish, and it'll stunt your career, big-time.
  6. Make commitments you can't keep or exaggerate your ability or influence. And don't lie either. The more straightforward and genuine you are, the smoother your career - and your life, for that matter - will go. Do what you say you're going to do, leave the BS for the other guy, and your credibility will grow, people will count on you for more and more, and off you go.
  7. Get angry, abusive, combative, or loud in an open or cubicle area. Admittedly, I was often guilty of this, back in the day. It wasn't acceptable then and it's not acceptable now, but at least then, it was a relatively common occurrence. These days, you stand out like a big bully, big-time. And nobody likes a bully.
  8. Say or do stuff people really don't want to hear or see. "Too much information" might be a bit subjective, but there's a common sense line you shouldn't cross, including anything to do with your sex life, religious beliefs, political leanings, finances, holistic cures for mysterious ailments, frequency of bowel movements, revealing tats or scars that are and should remain hidden by clothing, you get the picture.
  9. Act like a whiny, PITA negatron that nobody wants to have anything to do with. It's ironic, but those who do all the complaining are the ones that make the workplace a living hell, not the people or stuff they're always whining about. Think about it.
  10. Talk trash about a coworker to anyone, anywhere on company property. You can be sure it'll get around and come back to bite you in the end. Save it for friends, your spouse, or better still, the dog.

Kencana HL and Shinryo Secured Petronas Gas Jobs

Kencana HL Sdn Bhd in consortium with Shinryo (M) Sdn Bhd, had signed a contract with Petronas Gas Bhd to provide engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning (EPCC) work for two
co-generation plants.

I worked with Shinryo in 2008 for co-generation plant at Petronas Fertilizer Kedah. Combined cycle with two trains of Gas Turbine Generator (GTG) and Heat Recovery Steam Generator (HRSG). Shinryo's technical advisor, Mr. Nishimura is a very detail and precise guy. Knowledgeable person and very good in what he does. My former boss once said to me, if Nishimura is gone in the middle of the project, I think the project will collapse. Everybody seems to be referring to him on the technical matters.

This is the first time I heard Kencana involvement in co-generation plant EPCC. I don't know they have such expertise. Well, Petronas's advisor is Tun Mahathir while Kencana HL is wholly-owned by Kencana Petroleum. And guess what, Kencana Petroleum group CEO is Dato' Mokhzani Mahathir. Problem solved!

Puncak Oil & Gas Secured 500mil Contract

Puncak Niaga Holdings Bhd, which ventured into the oil and gas industry last year, has managed to secure contracts worth RM500 million, said its executive chairman Tan Sri Rozali Ismail.

Its involvement in the industry is via wholly-owned unit, Puncak Oil and Gas Sdn Bhd (POG), which had stakes in Global Offshore (M) Sdn Bhd and KGL Ltd last year.

Rozali said the company has been involved in many projects here and was ready for expansion overseas after recruiting experienced and capable staff to expand the oil and gas operations.

Maybe now it's a good times to move on to Puncak Oil & Gas. But they did not specify where the contract comes from. The most important is, for what project? Probably various orders? Or probably just a wild gossip to boost up their image in oil & gas so they can easily win the future project bid with Petronas or other operators.

Signs of Job Scam

I don't know about other industries, but in oil & gas this issue is prolonged since I am not sure when and I think it has become common. If you work in the oil & gas, the chances to receive such scam is high, it will be even higher if you an avid job seeker. It happened to me twice.

The first scam I got in Nov 2009, from a recruiter called Greatjobsdiary based in Scotland. I was applying the job through a forwarded email in my Yahoo group. A month later, they emailed me that they are interested to interviewing me through Skype due to great distance between us and in order to save cost, convenience and accessibility. I remembered their so called recruitment expert, Mr. frank Otieno, a Scottish guy. I barely comprehend anything that came out from his mouth during the interview due to his strong Scottish dialect. 2 days after the online interview, I received another email from them saying that their Australia clients are interested in having face to face interview with me in Brisbane. I started to feel doubtful when I read I have to pay upfront for air ticket and any related logistic matters which cost around USD1,839 which is of course they said refundable during the interview. I later confirmed it was definitely a scam when I emailed one of the client in Australia and the HR confirmed that his company has never engaged Greatjobsdiary for recruiting.

One of the sign that is definitely a scam. Candidates will never have to pay some amounts of money upfront prior to interview or relocation (in case you already secured the job). I had interviewed with Shell, they paid everything from air ticket to accommodation. Only the ground transportation such as taxi need to be used own money and to be claim later. I have also recently received an offer from automation company based in middle east. The company will pay around equivalent to RM20K for my relocation (Visa, passport, goods delivery etc) which of course excludes the air ticket for business class.

The second one, also happened in 2009, a company called elite-petrochemical limited based in Nigeria. They claimed they are supplying manpower for project code name: Escravos Project where Chevron is the biggest share holder. The trick is, I filled in the application form and answered some questions in the given form. Around a month later they come back to me with an offer that looks too good to be true. Why? With no interview either face to face or phone and no technical assessment and all, they willing to offer me as much as USD8,000 per month. I find that so ridiculous and backed off. However, I did replied them. I knew that the then group company I worked in was involved with Escravos, so I threw them a question "As far as my knowledge, the project has successfully delivered earlier this year, if I were to accept your offer what would exactly my scope of works there?" They never replied back!

Besides above mentioned signs, you can do some detective works by yourself if you encountered this situation or received offer that so doubtful. Well, google it. Try to find as much as possible about the company. Make a few calls if necessary to find out whether the company is legitimate. Some stupid scammers used commercial email in dealing with the victims. You must be aware of this. Sometimes you can see, for example: Shell Careers, but actually its email shell.career@gmail.com. You know what I mean. And the most common way is to ask around. Ask your friend in the industry about the offer, ask the seniors. They probably know better. 

Do not fall in their trap, this is something that see-able and avoidable and predictable.

Terengganu Dropped Charges Voluntarily

In 1999 state election, the opposition has took control of Terengganu after BN loss its majority votes. A year later in September 2000, the then Malaysia Prime Minister Dr. Mahathir Mohammad ordered PETRONAS to rescind the royalty payments on the ground that the federal government (BN) did not have confidence on state government (PAS) in managing the fund. 

March 2001, PAS-led state government of Terengganu has filed a lawsuit in the high court insisting that federal government's decree to stop the royalty payment is illegal based on exclusive agreement between PETRONAS and state. 

When BN took over Terengganu in 2005, they want to reinstate back the royalty payment in 2009, but the disagreements remained. Much of these revolved around federal government's special compensation scheme to the state called 'Wang Ehsan'. Of course, the wang ehsan paid to Terengganu now is much lower than the actual value Terengganu could get by 5%. 

Last March 31st, Terengganu government voluntarily dropped its 11-year legal suit against PETRONAS over the payment of royalties without any settlements. BN is so corrupt..rotten to grassroots.

Schlumberger Malaysia to invest up to MYR1.2B

Oil and gas dude must have heard this company. An oilfield services giant which has been operating in Malaysia since 1935. One of the must work place for people who keen in sub-surface/reservoir engineering/drilling/well service/geo-services etc. They pay very good salary and package as well. As the interviewer said, we will pay as much as your sweat drops. Very true indeed. 

You can make a fortune if you work here, depending on the path you take. I heard from my brother, who also happened to work in Schlumberger (Turkmenistan based), his friend who works as Directional Driller Supervisor earned more than MYR100K per month. He now lives in Dubai with his family. Make me drools a while when heard that. To work with them you also need to have a very good result in your degree (preferably 3 pointer above). 

The only way to apply for a job in Schlumberger is through its website: Schlumberger. I have not heard or saw any job advertisements from Schlumberger through any other recruitment agency, or in other words, Schlumberger has never appoints third party agency to recruit their staff. If you found one, it might be a job scam.

6 ciri-ciri Isteri Derhaka

 Gambar hiasan

Apakah ciri atau tanda isteri yang derhaka itu? Ini perlu diketahui semata-mata untuk dijadikan langkah waspada agar para isteri terhindar daripadanya. Berikut diketengahkan antara ciri atau tanda isteri derhaka:

Pertama: Tidak mensyukuri kebaikan yang dilakukan suami.
Sabda Rasulullah Sallallahu ‘Alaihi Wasallam bermaksud: Aku lihat api neraka, tidak pernah aku melihatnya seperti hari ini, kerana ada pemandangan yang dahsyat di dalamnya. Telah aku saksikan kebanyakan ahli neraka ialah wanita. Rasullullah Sallallahu ‘Alaihi Wasallam ditanya: Mengapa demikian ya Rasulullah? Baginda menjawab: Wanita mengkufurkan suaminya dan mangkufurkan ihsannya. Jikalau engkau berbuat baik kepadanya seberapa banyak pun dia masih belum merasa berpuas hati dan merasa cukup.
(Hadis Riwayat al-Bukhari)

Ibnu ‘Asakir pula menyebut: Apabila seorang isteri berkata kepada suaminya, aku belum pun melihat atau merasa nikmat pemberian daripadamu, maka ketika itu gugurlah segala pahala amalan kebajikannya.

Kedua: Suka menyakiti hati suami.
Rasulullah Sallallahu ‘Alaihi Wasallam bersabda yang bermaksud: Kebanyakan ahli neraka adalah terdiri daripada kaum wanita. Maka menangislah mereka dan bertanya salah seorang daripada mereka: Mengapa terjadi demikian, adakah kerana mereka berzina atau membunuh anak atau kafir Baginda menjawab: Tidak, mereka ini ialah mereka yang menggunakan lidah menyakiti hati suami dan tidak bersyukur akan nikmat yang disediakan oleh suaminya. (Hadis Riwayat Muslim)
Isteri yang suka menyakiti hati suami akan menerima balasan buruk sebagaimana sabda Rasulullah Sallallahu ‘Alaihi Wasallam: Seorang wanita menyakiti suaminya, maka isterinya yang bidadari itu berkata: Janganlah kamu menyakitinya semoga Allah mengutukmu, kerana dia (suami) itu disampingmu hanyalah sebagai orang asing yang akan berpisah denganmu menuju kami. (Hadis Riwayat Ibnu Majah)

Ketiga: Puasa sunat tanpa keizinan suami dan memasukkan seorang lelaki tanpa izin suaminya.
Sabda Rasulullah Sallallahu ‘Alaihi Wasallam yang bermaksud: Tidak boleh seorang isteri mengerjakan puasa sunat, jika suaminya ada dirumah, serta tidak dengan izinnya dan tidak boleh memasukkan seorang lelaki ke rumahnya dengan tidak izin suaminya. (Hadis Riwayat Bukhari dan Muslim)
Walaupun lelaki yang datang kerumah isteri tersebut adalah terdiri daripada mahramnya. Tetapi jika suami tidak ada halangan di atas kehadiran mereka tidak menjadi masaalah.

Keempat: Keluar rumah tanpa izin suami.
Nabi SAW bersabda maksudnya: Apabila perempuan keluar rumah, sedangkan suaminya membencinya, dia dilaknat oleh semua malaikat di langit, dan semua apa yang dilaluinya selain daripada jin dan manusia sehingga dia kembali. (Hadis Riwayat Thabarani di dalam al-Awsat)

Kelima : Meminta cerai daripada suami.
Sabda Rasulallah Sallallahu ‘Alaihi Wasallam yang bermaksud: Mana-mana isteri yang meminta suaminya menceraikannya dengan tiada sebab yang dibenarkan oleh syarak haram baginya bau syurga. (Hadis Riwayat Abu Daud dan Tirmizi)
Dalam kes meminta cerai kepada suaminya, seorang isteri dibenarkan sekiranya terdapat beberapa sebab yang di benarkan syarak seperti suami tidak memberikan nafkah zahir dan batin, suka memukul isteri dan menyuruh isteri melakukan perkara yang haram.
Isteri boleh mengadu pada mahkamah syariah di atas perbuatan suaminya dan boleh menuntut fasakh. Jika isteri sudah merasakan tidak bersesuaian untuk hidup bersama suaminya dia boleh juga mengadu di makhamah syariah untuk Tebus Talak iaitu memberikan beberapa sejumlah wang sebagai tebusan kepada suaminya untuk dia diceraikan.
Tetapi dalam kes suami hendak berpoligami dan suami berkemampuan ketika ini isteri tidak ada hak untuk meminta cerai . Ini adalah kerana hukum berpoligami telah termaktub di dalam al-Quran dan ianya di halalkan oleh Allah SWT.
Jika suaminya telah pun berkahwin lain tanpa pengetahuannya dan jika dia memaksa suaminya menceriakan madunya dia akan mendapat laknat Allah dan berdosa besar. Suaminya akan menjadi dayus apabila mengikut telunjuk isteri dengan mengabaikan isteri keduanya.
Jalan sebaik-baiknya isteri pertama perlulah bertolak ansur dan janganlah mengikut nafsu amarah dan membelakangkan hukum agama.
Jika kalian bersabar dan menerima kehadiran isteri kedua dengan hati yang tenang dan terbuka dan berfikiran positif ganjaran yang akan kalian terima cukup besar disis Allah SWT.
Jika kalian bertindak secara melulu tanpa di dorong oleh iman dan takwa berdasarkan hadis di atas tidak akan masuk syurga isteri yang meminta cerai tanpa alasan yang dibenarkan syarak.

Keenam: Isteri yang tidak menunaikan hajat suami.
Sabda Rasulullah Sallallahu ‘Alaihi Wasallam maksudnya: Apabila memanggil suami akan isterinya ke tempat tidur, tetapi ditolaknya sehingga marahlah suaminya, maka akan tidurlah wanita itu di dalam laknat malaikat sehingga ke pagi. (Hadis Riwayat Bukhari dan Muslim)
