a reminder : have a mind of your own

today mr olakunle m yusuff sent me this hadith by al-tirmidhi hadith 1325

HADITH OF THE DAY: HAVE A MIND OF YOUR OWN

The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said:
"Do not be people without minds of your own, saying that if others treat you well you will treat them well and that if they do wrong you will do wrong. But (instead) accustom yourselves to do good if people do good and not to do wrong if they do evil."

Rule 10 : Develop the Right Attitude

at work a lot of people have a sort of 'us and them' attitude. they like to side with the 'workers' and moan about the 'management', but i must develop the right attitude :

the right atittude means giving it my best shot, not just today but every day. not just when it's easy but when it's bloody awful as well.

the right atittude means going that extra mile, giving it that extra effort even when im tired and pissed off and ready to quit. others can quit, i can't, im a rules player.

the right atittude is head up, never moaning, always positive and upbeat,constantly looking for the advantage and the edge.

the right atitude is developing standards---and sticking to them. being sure of the bottom line and knowing when to make a stand.

the right atittude is being aware that i have enormous power and that i will exercise the power with kindness, restraint, humanity and consideration. i wont do anyone down or be ruthless or manipulative. yes..i may take advantage of other's sleepiness or wrong atittude..that's their problem, but i will take the moral high ground and be blameless.

the right atittude is being good but quick, kind but observant, considerate but successful...

great teacher inspires..

i was in 5 dedikasi this morning and quietly took this picture...nampak ok saje mereka ni..may Allah lead them to success in their studies for their better future.

a not so short note

case no 1 : yesterday afternoon i attended a district level meeting and for the first time i did not speak a word in a meeting. the other committtee members were so jealous, but i did that just to save face the bossess. after the meeting quietly i went to see the officer in-charge and told him to make sure the data presented be updated for the next meeting. so it's all up to him, i'll not be as quiet next time. seriously..sakit hati juga ni..
case no 2 : i missed an important date. my secretary had an operation and is on medical leave, but that's not the reason for being careless. everyone seems to be very busy lately.

to put things right between people


i paid the traffic summon that i received from the traffic police today. i put rm300 on the counter after the policeman behind a pc said "tiga ribu" when i gave him the summon ticket. then he commented, "orang banyak duit" but i did not say a word. then he asked for my identity card. when he saw my ic he said," sekarang duduk mana". i answered him by saying i stayed at the same address written in my ic. he commented, " tak pernah nampak pun". i kept quiet. while he was typing something on the pc he was murmuring something which i cannot hear clearly, and i asked him to repeat. he said, he was talking to another officer and telling him that he was in the same class with me at a religious school. heheee...(actually i did not finish my religious school because i went to a boarding school)..he said loudly, 'dia tu pandai, kawan ni bodoh sebab tu kerja kat kaunter ini saje'. i smiled a bit and said nothing. actually i was wishing and praying that he'll not take rm 300...heheee..afterall my offence was only parking at a non parking lot. after the reciept was ready...jeng..jeng..jeng...he returned my rm270. alhamdulillah... actually i did not know that the summon should be only rm30..nothing was written on the summon paper.. padan la dia kata..'orang banyak duit' and actually i'm stupid not him. the officer actually sindir/being cynical because i did not bother to ask him the amount for my offence. sombong bodoh..hehee..
p/s i asked my mom if she knows anyone at our village that work as a traffic police..she said yes..'anak seman jemaat'..heheee...nasib la dia..i cannot recall him anyway..sorry mr policeman.

Is sleeping a sickness?


i've been teaching for many years, but nowadays is very common to see students sleeping in the classroom. some of them will fall asleep once they enter the class. yeah..eventhou it is still very early in the morning. i wonder if sleeping is a sickness or a kind of disease.
Update:
i told my students may be i should make a police report about their sleeping habit. may be they have been abused by their parents and cannot sleep well at home.

Picture of the Day

happy to watch them happy

orang miskin orang kaya orang jahat orang baik

saya suka ayat-ayat ini..

kemiskinan bukan dilawan dengan memberikan beras dan ikan masin.kemiskinan lahir dari struktur masyarakat itu sendiri. agihan kekayaan yang kurang adil adalah penyebab utama. beri beras , beri gula, beri telor , beri duit – memang boleh melegakan kesusahan sang keluarga. ini langkah betul. sesiapa yang melakukannya telah membuat amal yang baik. tapi untuk berapa lama? disinilah seharusnya gedung-gedung ilmu kita mengeluar kan pandangan dan pendapat. mengeluarkan cadangan dan thesis. mengajukan cara menyuluruh untuk memastikan tidak ada sesiapa yang tecicir jatuh miskin.kita bersedih bila membaca berita ini.kita bersimpati apabila menghayati berita ini.tapi bersimpati dan menghayati hanya pembuka mata.kuncinya pada diri kita sendiri.

dalam dunia ini yang jahat bukan ramai kejahatan dan kebebalan muncul apabila orang baik tidak melakukan apa-apa.
