my version of the never ending story-: re-search

Recently, I had a discussion with my supervisor- apart from other important things we discussed, this was the interesting part of the conversation I want to share:

SV: You need to get ready with all the proteins. Purify and freeze dry them before Christmas.
Me: OK. *jot down the instruction; I must work hard to get those protein ready*
SV: Then, I shall talk to one of our project collaborators in Southampton for a training course on cell infection for you to attend.
Me: OK. Thank you, I really need that! *Yippie*
SV: Maybe after new year too, I will need to send you to Dublin for another training; playing with the lung cells. N yes, you have to bring along The Proteins.
Me: OK. I really hope we get some interesting results from the experiments. Most probably there'll be, right? since the proteins are antigenic to the host *Again, travelling! Yahoo!!!*
SV: It will be exciting journey. And yes, most probably we can get something from the project. And we need to see whether we can visualize the changes or not. Erm, I'm thinking, perhaps, in January too, you can present a seminar on our research bacground and updating the progress of the project at department level.
Me: smile and keep silent. *WHAT? SO SOON?! NOT OK!!*

OMG, there goes all the fun... welcome CHALLENGES! yeah, right..hahaa
I do hope it goes just as we have planned, though. Smooth sailing please :D


Have a pleasant weekend everyone! May Allah shower His blessing to you and me :) May He guide our soul to find the truth, teach us to be patient, to love and give more and to have mercy on others who are less fortunate than us.
Ameen :)

nothing to regret. grateful. alhamdulillah.

8 months stayed in Malaysia was wonderful! though at times stressed did knock on my door, but with friends around, it did help. maybe not helping with the work, but just being there and willing to lend their ears, it was such a relief! Ramadhan was another new experience i never had before. this Ramadhan, we went to mosques for break-fast. when i say we, it refers to my housemate and I and sometimes our 1 or 2 other friends would joined us. subhanAllah, i couldn't describe the feeling, it was like? i don't ur heart feel so peaceful, happy (i knw it was more than tht) & u don't want to leave the place. u just want to be there all the time. i really miss those beautiful moment. i surely will cherish it till the end of my life. eid was fun too! met most of my relatives. been ages since we were last met! semua dah besar panjang, cantik2 and handsome2 belaka..hahaa.. those short time spent wisely and meaningfully, alhamdulillah. fulfilled my mom's dream too..inshaAllah will do it again mom! hehe..ronda2, singgah solat from masjid to masjid in every stop, inshaAllah.hopefully i'll be more brave in driving in future (competent) and go a bit farther than Ipoh and KL. hahaa!

rindu rumah sebenarnye. :D

it's not a song i wanted to sing

things aren't always turn out just how we want them to be. surely, there'll be missing pieces here and there, making turns before we reach our objective (duh, so boring). but, yeah, that's the reality we have to live in! at times, well, if you are lucky enough, you'll find it as a mysterious yet interesting adventure you have ever had in life! however, when it is the other way around, you'll definitely feel miserable :( everything seems so wrong, your nose bleeding, your head is going to blow out, you feel you going to vomit bla bla bla.. what would you do? cover yourself with duvet and snooze?...yeah, that's what most people would do. better than throw your rage to others i supposed.
should it happen to me at any time or situation (well, it happened to me yesterday), i do feel horrible :( especially when I am at the top of my spirit to do work when suddenly something just isn't right come in my way. i feel like screaming!!!!! i need to do my job, now! but I can't focus! :( so, i run back home after clearing up my lab bench. yes, I do make my place clean first before I leave. I hate messy table! Despite what happened, God actually is trying to send me a message. I believe so.
On my way back (my flat is quite a distance from Uni), I saw many unfortunate people-an elderly woman carrying her oxygen tank alone, a man on wheelchair crossing the road, a young girl with neuro signs..Oh, what I suffered is just...nothing! Maybe I am so obsess on being a focus and hardworking student I forget that some difficulties in life is just to test whether you are thankful for the bright days, your health and your easy paths..
Take it as a bonus from God, to have a day or 2 off; hoping you'll replenish your energy the following week, inshaAllah.
Have a wonderful Friday and weekend everyone :)
*I need to get myself iron tablets and multivitamins for this winter.I 'love' pills!

Bila penat bertandang..

Bagi mengatasi kepenatan melaksanakan tugas-tugas seharian sama ada di rumah mahupun di tempat kerja, bolehlah jadikan petua yang diajar oleh Rasulullah SAW kepada puteri kesayangannya Saidatina Fatimah sebagai penawarnya. Suatu hari Saidatina Fatimah mengadu kepada suaminya Saidina Ali bin Abu Talib tentang kesakitan pada tangannya kerana keletihan menggiling gandum untuk membuat roti. Saidina Ali berkata

"Bapa kamu telah datang membawa balik tawanan perang. Berjumpalah dia dan mintalah seorang khadam untuk membantu mu." Saidatina Fatimah pergi bertemu bapanya dan menyatakan hasrat untuk mendapatkan seorang khadam bagi membantu tugas hariannya di rumah. Bagaimanapun Rasulullah SAW tidak mampu memenuhi permintaan anak kesayangannya itu. Lalu Baginda SAW pergi menemui puterinya serta menantu itu. Baginda SAW berkata: "Apa kamu berdua mahu aku ajarkan perkara yang lebih baik daripada apa yang kamu minta daripadaku? Apabila kamu berdua berbaring untuk tidur, bertasbihlah (Subhanallah) 33 kali, bertahmid (Alhamdulillah) 33 kali dan bertakbir (Allahuakbar) 33 kali. Ia adalah lebih baik untuk kamu berdua daripada seorang khadam."

Inilah penawar ringkas yang Nabi SAW ajarkan kepada anak dan menantunya bagi meringankan keletihan dan kesusahan hidup mereka berdua. Saidina Ali terus mengulang-ulang kalimah-kalimah Rasulullah.SAW ini. Katanya "Demi Allah aku tidak pernah meninggalkannya semenjak ia diajarkan kepadaku."

UK and government scholarships (KPT)

I think this is the best medium to share my experience handling this matter. For tutors out there who wish to study abroad doing master or phd to UK, I hope this will help you in a way to ease your process. I learn a lot from the process which brought me here and there, asking for these and those etc. So, here it goes ;)
1. Get yourself a place- after you have secured a supervisor in any university in the UK, get yourself an offer letter (conditional or unconditional).
2. Scholarship/ study leave application (SLAB/ SLAI)- wait no more and don't listen to others! This is very IMPORTANT!! Ppl might say the chance is very slim but who knows? You might be the lucky person! Just go ahead with the application and prepare yourself a supporting letter reasoning why u wish to study there. Your letter should be endorsed by HoD and the Dean of your faculty. Send your study leave/ scholarship application ASAP. If required, go and introduce yourself to TNCA since he/she will contribute in decision making for your study leave application at university stage before the forms being forwarded to MoHE for scholarship part. InshaAllah, once your study leave has been approved, your scholarship will follow :)
3. Visa- Once you have received CAS statement from Graduate school and ATAS letter which u apply via this website (if required), you may proceed with online Visa application at this website:
We are categorize underTier4 (general) students if we are sponsored by MoHE (KPT).MoHE nowadays only provides you with electronic version of letters and agreement. So make sure you colour print the financial affidavit etc to submit to visa application centre which is situated at Wisma MCA, Jln. Ampang. Mine was rejected at first because there's no signature?! Although there was an obvious statement there: this is computer generated, no signature is required. So, I went to MoHE just to seek for the documents to be certified as true copy. Ask Pn. Juita's help, she's a very nice and helpful lady :) Provide all the important documents such as the documents from MoHE ( everything regarding sponsorship), passport, english cert, CAS statement, ATAS cert, bank draft, your transcripts (degree/ master). Don't forget to bring along a copy of each originals document you gave them, if not they will keep all your original copies and won't be returned to you. ANOTHER IMPORTANT PART: MAKE AN APPOINTMENT BEFORE YOU GO TO THE CENTRE especially during peak months like August and September. Book your date here:
Mine was settled in 2 hours time. Alhamdulillah.
4. Book your seat- this part, I am sure everyone knows how to do it ;) Do it after you granted a visa.
I think that's all about it. Patience pays off, inshaAllah :D Good luck to all!

p/s: please pray for my success in your du'a, thank you :)

ringkasan tafsir al-kahfi: 17&18

Perkongsian tafsir al-kahfi:17-18 oleh ustaz hasrizal di surau an-nur semalam. MashaAllah, he's a very interesting man! Ramai sangat yg dtg dengar kuliah maghrib smlm berbeza dgn hari2 lain oleh ustaz2 lain.Moga Allah panjangkan umurnya supaya dpt terus menyampaikan ilmu dan dimanfaatkan oleh orang yg mendengarnya.

17: Mengapa Allah memperincikan gua itu pd Nabi semasa turunnya surah ni? I am sure u know better than me but I still want to share. kisahnya begini: satu hari ada seorang kafir dtg kpd seorang Yahudi mengatakan seorang pemuda bernama Muhammad mengaku dirinya rasul utusan Allah. lantas Yahudi tadi meminta kafir mekah ini menguji baginda rasul dgn 3 soalan- ashabul kahfi, zulkarnain dan roh. lalu Rasulullah menceritakan segala perincian ttg ashabul kahfi dan zulkarnain dgn izin Allah seperti yg diwahyukan pd Baginda. manakala soal roh Rasulullah tdk dpt menjawab nya seperti 2 kisah td. Baginda berkata, sesungguhnya roh itu urusan Allah, aku tdk mengetahuinya. kesimpulan di sini- jadi sesiapa yg berkata dia tahu segala-galanya itu adlah pembohong/pendusta kerana semua ilmu itu dipegang oleh Allah.

18: Orang yg berjuang di jalan Allah tidak pernah sunyi/keseorangan kerana Allah akan sentiasa mengerahkan seluruh alam untuk membantunya. reflect semula kisah ashabul kahfi. pemuda2 beriman yg dilindungi Allah melalui tentera2nya. siapa tentera itu? ia dtg dlm pelbagai keadaan: tidur dengan mata yg terbuka itu tentera Allah, dibalik2an seperti fitrah manusia tidur satu bantuan, sesiapa yg memandang mereka akan gentar itu tentera Allah, anjing di hdpn gua juga tentera/ bantuan Allah. Jadi, jgn futur (putus asa/kecewa) dlm menegakkan yg haq.

p/s: mengikut kata ustaz hasrizal, ada bnyk negara yg mengaku di tmpt mereka berlaku kisah the 7 sleepers tu- Jordan, syria, turki, sepanyol. yg plg dkt dgn perincian yg Allah berikan adlah di Jordan. Wallahualam..

something to share with you ladies :)

I came across this article after discussing this issue with a friend few days ago. I really like the way the author explain. Simple and sweet, easy to comprehend. Hope it's beneficial to us all, inshaAllah :)

Most women who have infertility issues also suffer from abnormal menstrual flows. While Muslim women generally know the does and don’ts of a normal menstrual flow, many are at a loss of what to do during an abnormal menstrual cycle. Our purpose here is not to discuss the normal flows or the Islamic rules regarding them, but to address those rules related to abnormal flows as well as post natal bleeding and bleeding after a miscarriage, which are also commonly misunderstood amongst Muslim women.

The Qur’an addresses menstruation on three occasions, two of which don’t concern us in this discussion. The one ayat, which is small but holds a lot of detail is in Al Baqarah ayat 222 which can be translated as: “They ask you concerning menstruation (mahid) Say: it is a hurt (adha) Therefore keep away from them during their menstruation and go Not unto them until they have become clean (Tahara) And when they have cleansed (Tatahhara) then go into Them as Allah has ordained for you.”
The implication of this ayat is in regards to the sexual relations between man and women during the menstrual cycle. However, we learn several other things from this aya that applies to women and menstruation in regards to other aspects of Islam.
Adha, a hurt, injury or ailment, is the word that Allah uses to describe the menstruation of a woman. Any woman can relate to the hurt, which comes in the forms of abdominal, cramps, backache, inner thigh pain, headaches, nausea and many other symptoms associated with the menstrual flow. The severity of which will differ from women to women, however women suffering from Endometriosis will have increased abdominal cramps.
Tahara, cleansing or purity, Allah points out the fact that during the time of the menstrual flow women are impure. Not in the sense that everything related to her body is impure, for the menstrual cycle is not in the hands of a woman.
Aisha reported: The Prophet said to me “Bring the mat for me From the mosque.” I said: “I have got menses.” He said: “Your menstruation is not in your hand”
But impurity in the sense that the menstrual flow is a form of cleansing. During the month the uterine lining will thicken in the hopes of implantation. When this does not happen the uterine lining will shed, a form of cleansing that the body requires in order to prepare for the next month of anticipated pregnancy.
A medically defined normal menstrual flow is considered to be one that occurs every month when a woman is not pregnant, for up to seven days, and not associated with unusual amounts of pain. However the Muslim scholars differ as to the minimum and maximum days of menstrual flow in order for it to be legally defined as a menstrual flow. The Hanafis allow three days minimum and ten days maximum, Hanbalis and Shafi’is allow for a one day minimum and maximum of fifteen days and according to the Malikis there is no minimum set time but the maximum is set at fifteen days also. However women are not programmed like a computer, the duration of their own normal flow may differ from woman to woman.
There are two forms of abnormal flows, which concern us here, the prolonged flow and the bleeding between menstrual cycles. Both of which are not subject to the same rules that a normal flow is in shariah.

This is something which Muhammad pbuh addressed with the women of his time
Aisha reported that Fatimah, the daughter of Abu Hubaish Came to the Prophet and said: “O Messenger of Allah, I am a woman who has a constant discharge of Blood so I am not purified. Shall I give up prayer?” He said: “No, that is a vein and not menses, And when your menses comes, give up your prayer; And when the time elapses, wash the blood from yourself and Than pray.
Umm Salamah reported that a woman used to discharge Blood at the time of the Prophet. Umm Salamah asked Decision of the Prophet for her. He said: “Let her look To the number of nights and days in a month which she Used to have menses before that which attacked her, And let her give up prayer proportionate to that in a Month. When she finishes that, let her take bath And let her tie a cloth over her private part and then let Her say prayer
From here we see that Muhammad pbuh referred to this abnormal flow as not of the regular cycle, rather from a vein. While the vein should not be taken in a literal sense we should understand it that the bleeding comes from a different source than a normal menstrual flow, which consists of the shedding of the uterine lining.
Menorrhagia, the medical term for prolonged blood flows or abnormal amount of blood flow can have several causes. What is an abnormal amount of blood? There is a charting system that will help you find out. Some causes for prolonged blood flow include uterine fibroid tumors, polyps, hormonal imbalances, thyroid level imbalance, lupus and other medical conditions including cancer. All women should refer to their doctors if they have prolonged blood flows or large quantity of bleeding.
We also learn from these ahadith that the rules that are applicable to women during their normal cycle are not applicable to women during a prolonged flow. Under a normal menstrual flow a woman would not be permitted to make formalized salah, to fast during Ramadhan, although she would have to make up for days missed. She would also be prohibited from staying in the mosque, or sitting on the musallah. However if it is Eid all women are to come out for this celebration menstrual flow or not. Sexual intercourse is prohibited, however touching, kissing and other forms of foreplay are not prohibited. She also would not make tawaf around the Kabah during Hajj as well as touching the Arabic script of Quran.
All Sunni madhahib do agree that during an abnormal flow none of the above things are prohibited for her. She is to pray, fast, can stay in the mosque, make tawaf around the Kabah, touch the Quran and have sexual intercourse. The only requirement is that she makes ghusl as she normally would do after a menstrual flow. When she makes salah she would also make wudu before every prayer, however a full ghusl for every prayer is not mandated but can be the choice of the woman as we have seen in the above hadith.

This is another form of abnormal bleeding that has been addressed by Muhammad pbuh as reported: Narrated Aisha one of the wives of the Messenger of Allah joined him in I’tikaf and she noticed Blood and yellowish discharge (from her Private parts) and put a dish under Her when she prayed
Narrated Aisha: Umm Habiba got bleeding In-between the periods for seven years. She asked Allah’s Messenger about it. He ordered her to Take a bath and that it was from a blood Vessel. So she used to take a bath Before every prayer
Again we see that the same legal rulings which apply to a prolonged flow of bleeding to that of the bleeding in-between a normal cycle. So what are some of the causes for such bleeding?
Metrorrhagia, the medical term for bleeding between cycles, has several causes. Some of which are hormonal fluctuations, low thyroid levels, vaginal infections, injury to the vagina, some forms of cancer, certain medications, stress, or missing a birth control pill. Whenever a woman experiences bleeding in-between cycles from unknown causes it is best to call the doctor. You should keep track of how many pads you use; this can help determine if the blood flow is abnormally heavy. Also staying away from aspirin can help since it prolongs bleeding.
The same Muslim scholar deductions related to the prolonged flow would also relate to the flow in-between cycles. So a woman can resume all normal activities which she would if she were not menstruating.

One of the most commonly misunderstood things about postnatal bleeding is that many women think that they should refrain from all things for a total of forty days. They understand this to be the scholarly deduction if they are bleeding or not. However according to the scholarly deductions there are set maximum days just as we say in the menstrual flow. In the opinion of the Hanafis and Hanbalis the maximum amount of time is forty days, anything beyond this is not considered a normal flow of nifas and would be subject to different rules. The Shafi’is and Malikis set a maximum amount of time of sixty days. This however does not mean that if a woman’s flow stops before the forty days she is to continue in a state of “impurity” rather she is to make ghusl and resume her Islamic duties.
Anas reported that Allah’s Messenger had prescribed Forty days for a woman in the state of nifas except that she feels purified before this (period)
Again there is no set programming for women during these times, each women will differ as to her flow. Some bleed for a longer amount of time, some having a heavier flow, and some experiencing different color of the discharge. If a woman is unsure as to any flow she is having be it menstrual or postnatal she should discuss this with her doctor. Generally most doctors will say about six weeks of postnatal bleeding is normal and if bleeding occurs after that than a cause should be found, depending on the blood flow.

When a woman miscarries she may experience bleeding during and after. The length of time will differ from each women but generally a woman will bleed for a few days a week or on and off for a few weeks. Concern should be noted if the bleeding is more than a normal menstrual flow, or when you soak a pad within an hour. There are different reasons why some women may flow heavier than others in these times such as location of implantation in the uterus, how deep embryo had implanted, condition of the uterine lining, or muscle tone of the uterus. It could also be due to ones own nutrients, such as iron, calcium and electrolytes. There are many factors, however if you become concerned over the flow of blood or amount refer to your doctor.
All the rules concerning a menstrual flow would also apply to women who bleed after miscarriage. Such as not praying, fasting, having sexual intercourse, tawaf around the Kabah.
A woman with sporadic bleeding after a miscarriage and it is determined to be normal should resume her duties when she has no flow. But when the flow comes again should ceases in her duties. If the flow were determined to be of another nature than the rules regarding abnormal blood flow would also apply.

Ghusl = is an Arabic term referring to the full ablution (ritual washing) required in Islam for various rituals and prayers. The ablution becomes mandatory for any adult Muslim after having sexual intercourse, any sexual discharge (e.g. of semen),completion of the menstrual cycle,giving birth, and death by natural causes.

back to nature

Hiking at broga hill and mt tok wan in semenyih is the first trip I had ever since I got back to msia in December 2010. We made our move there quite late actually at 630 am on Sunday, 1206201 as most of the hikers usually starts their climbing before dawn to witness the magnificent sunrise from the peak of Broga Hill. There were 8 of us for this leisure trip where we started to hike at 730am. The climb was not so difficult although I have to stop few times to catch my breath. After reaching the pinnacle at about 840am, we saw a signboard leading to Mt. Tok Wan which is a 3.1km further of hiking. After being persuaded by the rest of the group members, I finally joined them as I don't want to be left behind alone waiting under the bright hot blazing sun! We rest quite some times at Broga before proceed. The path to Mt. Tok Wan was quite challenging for me, a beginner in mountain climbing. But for those who are fit enough, I am sure this track is so easy for you. I really suggest to who ever wished to go here either Broga or Mt. Tok Wan to bring enough water as there's no river for you to refill your empty bottles throughout the track. Also, hike as early as possible as it shall be very hot after the sun rises. We left the mountain at 12 noon, hence we felt very dehydrated and weak on our way down hill.

Take home message:
1. Appreciate and be grateful for what Allah has given us. The nature is one of the best gift he's given us. Protect and preserve it well, do not litter, don't make any damage that could lead to imbalance in ecosystem and the last thing you know, you too will be affected by your own mistake!

2. A friend of mine looked at a different angle from this trip. In this world, if we are thirsty, we have money and we can buy water to replenish the water loss and we won't feel thirsty anymore. But in Mahsyar, if we don't have enough amal (good deeds) how can we be comfortable there? Our amal is our money there.

3. In this world, money is the basis of life. One has to listen to their boss and do our job well to get paid. The same rule applies for us to achieve happiness in Hereafter (heaven), we have to obey to Allah rules and perform our duty as Muslim.

world book day? hari buku sedunia?

It's funny to have a world book day because i never realize there's such an annual event..each year, we celebrate it on 23rd April.. I thought we should read books everyday?! well, few pages of book(s) a day is considered fine with me :P ok, maybe considered fine isn't appropriate here, haha.. i hope i didn't sound like cynical/skeptical/pessimist or anything you can call a negative expression,to be honest, i do love the idea and i think it's good to have this kind of occasion. At least people will be motivated/ inspired to get a book for that special day and read it seeing everybody around you holding a book ;)
Currently, I am reading 2 books (depending on my mood which one to read)-The lovely bones by Alice Sebold, and Khadijah RA dan Aisyah RA: inspirasi cinta di balik peribadi Rasulullah by Eman Sulaiman. 
Can't wait to get home and read them all!!, gambate!!!! work work work!!!

Her Journey to Islam

Date: 25th Jan 2011
Venue: Kelab Golf Perkhidmatan Awam, Bukit Kiara
Time: 2030-2200
Speaker: Lauren Booth

She is a very well-known person for being one of the great supporters for the Palestinian after covering the story at the Strip of Gaza and also Israel..It's amazing listening to her experience on how she eventually embrace Islam.

But what I wanted to share with you are these particular sentences (roughly) she said during the talk.

Muslim women with hijaab are a brand. So make it a great brand! Instead of dull and depressed, never smiled to others; do appear neat, tidy, clean and cheerful, full of vibrant no matter how bad your days are! Not to forget, watch your thoughts and speech as well, as we are always being looked upon at every aspect of life..
