Assalamualaikum. Yesterday, attended a ceramah entitled "Keganasan, Punca & Penawarnya". by MHDS led by Ustaz TM Fouzy at Bedok Stadium. It began with solat Fardhu Maghrib followed by solat Sunnat Hajat. It was a very meaningful concourse and I was truly glad to be one of the participant. In his ceramah, he did not only talk about the current war in Gaza but also about the war in a smaller scale that we are all facing unsubconsciously. This is the war our hearts is facing. Even a slight ego or angst is actually a war. It is war between our heart trying hard not to succumb to the murmur of Devil. The way we talk to our parents and other family members, is it "peaceful" enough? The way we react to the foolishness and the mistakes our friends accidentally commit? The war in Gaza, I believe, started with just angst and an enormous ego of the various leaders, then translated to fiery speech and then lead to a BIG war. Don't look at the big war and start pinpointing the mistakes-doers that cause it, but look at us, look at our minute war that we are struggling with everyday. This may lead to a big war too. Expel all the angst and ego that we have in our heart. Who are we to have that ego? Who are we to be angry? Who are we to exhibit the arrogance? While we know there is a MIGHTY who grants and bless us with all the wealth, health, strength, intelligence and handsomeness we have. It all comes from Him. We always forget.
Talking about ego, we guys always think that we are better than our partners. Even though we love them, sometimes we think they are disposable, not realising that they are actually an integral part of us. Appreciate them men! Oh wait, after reading this, please do not think that I am attached now. I am not; still single and available. I am saying this after listening to Dato' Siti Nurhaliza's latest soundtrack for Perempuan Berkalung Sorban entitled Batasku Asaku. Guys, this is a song dedicated to you from your dear life partners...
Bila kutercipta dari tulang rusukmu
Mengapa kumampu sempurnakan hidupmu
Bila ku ada karena kau ada
Mengapa kau tak bisa sendiri saja...
