Why Should the Call to Prayer Be So Durn Loud,

and use the speaker too?? Does it not disturb others who are not Muslims?
Such question or I may say such complaint has started to emerge lately, especially among tourists. Sometimes when explaining certain thing, using analogy is the best way. wink

Adalah teman saya, yang kebetulan non muslim, bertanya kepada saya, “Kenapa kalau adzan harus dibunyikan keras-keras dengan speaker pula?”.

“Bro, adzan itu adalah panggilan sholat, pasti dong namanya panggilan tidak mungkin dengan cara yang sama seperti berbicara atau berbisik-bisik”.

Teman saya membalas “Tapi kan di orang-orang sekitar tidak semuanya muslim?”.

Saya jawab lagi “Benar. Bro, kita sekarang sedang ada di bandara, dengar kan announcement bandara selalu memberikan panggilan boarding? Apakah kamu juga mempertanyakan ke mereka mengapa melakukan panggilan boarding pesawat YANG LAIN keras-keras padahal bukan panggilan pesawatmu?”

Dia tersenyum namun membalas lagi “Tapi kan hari gini semua orang sudah tahu dengan teknologi jam berapa waktu sholat apa, apa masih harus adzan keras-keras?”.

Saya pun kemudian menjawab “Ya setiap penumpang juga kan sudah tahu jadwal penerbangannya sejak pesan dan memegang tiket, kemudian check-in, sudah tercetak jadwal keberangkatannya di boarding pass, sudah masuk ruang tunggu, tapi tetap bandara melakukan panggilan boarding bukan?

Dan ada satu hal lagi mengapa adzan harus dikumandangkan, itu bukan hanya sebagai penanda sudah masuk waktu sholat tapi benar-benar panggilan sholat, karena kami harus menyegerakan sholat. Sama halnya semua penumpang harus menyegerakan masuk pesawat setelah panggilan boarding, walaupun masih ada waktu naik pesawat sampai pesawat tutup pintu”.

Kali ini senyumnya bertambah lebar, lalu dia setengah memeluk saya sambil menepuk-nepuk bahu saya dan berkata “Super .. I got it bro“

I got that from my friend on WA.

Please Stop It..

When D Trump ordered his foreign affairs minister (or whatever you call that person) to announce something officially or to make an official statement, then the minister showed up on TV reading the announcement, do you think Trump typed the statement? Do you think the minister typed it?

Ofcourse NOT.. his staff did that. Trump dictated it to his staff. Once it's announced, no one would even care who typed or wrote it down.. It's Trump's words, not the typist's words.. that's all that matters. No?

You see, it's the same thing as a Holy Book, whatever that is. Ofcourse it was WRITTEN by men! God dictated his words to His Messengers through His Angels.

The believers BELIEVE that. Some, yes, shove their beliefs down others' throat, but some don't.
And YOU, the non believers, BELIEVE that's not true..all was just fiction...it's primitive beliefs made by primitive humans.. blah blah..
Although some non believers don't shove such belief down others' throat, remember some do, like some of YOU.

Then what is the difference between YOU and them?? confused

So please stop it!
Or should I too say, please give it a rest.. tip hat

Practice What You Preach..

And you think that has given you all the rights to say anything as you please about MY RELIGION, eh Sands88 or Seaworthy or whoever you are?? Where is your own tolerance??
Why don't you practice what you preach. wink

Remember, when you point one finger, there are three fingers pointing back to you." Jesus had a version of this wisdom when he said, "Don't focus on the speck in your brother's eye while ignoring the log in your own eye." nerd

Why do you always see the bad in others rather than yourselves. dunno

And So I Am The Greek One..

Which one is yours? grin

Anyway, here’s what I got from Prof. Google.

Greek foot (also known as Morton’s foot) has the 2nd toe longer than all of the other toes. Can be seen on Roman statues Tiberius, the Greek God Apollo and the Statue of Liberty. Indicates leadership qualities. Rulers from ancient Egyptian and Hawaiian royal dynasties all had long second toes. You need to be in charge. (DK: Yup. Got this right. Kids, listen up. Your old man is a near direct descendant of Apollo. Greeks’ Rule.)

Germanic foot (also known as Peasant feet or Giselle feet) has at least 3 toes similar in length and tend to be short and stubby. Stable functioning foot. Ideal for ballerinas. (DK: Wow. Peasant and Ballerina. Scratch your head on that one.)

Egyptian foot has the longest big toe with all other toes tapering down. Described as the most functional of all of the foot structures. (DK: Figures that the pyramid-builders would get this right.)

Celtic Toe: Wiki** states that article references on this topic are subject to deletion as there is no scientific support or basis for these conclusions. (DK: Bottom Line: If you have Celtic toes, you’re in deep trouble.)

Roman Toes: (DK: Couldn’t find any research. Even Wiki** had a minor passing reference. So you are either alien or a yet-to-be-discovered species.)

Looking at the above Family Tree, now I wonder which Greek Gods I was descended from? hmmm

The New Burqa Lady..

I know this lady quite well. She is a Muslim and just like me she also wore hijab and not burqa. We talked and discussed certain issues sometimes. The other day we talked about how some cs people were "bashing, insulting and attacking" Muslim women who chose to wear burqa. Then few days ago, I met her again and I was surprised. She has worn burqa. shock

It's like reverse psychology.. the more you are attacked for what you wear, the more you fight to wear it.

I told her that although I don't wear burqa, I will be her biggest supporter. heart wings

Let's Have A Little Fun..

I was told that our eyes are like our finger prints. They are so unique and that's why advanced technology has used them to secure rooms where very important products are kept.

Oohh that's boring. doh
So let's have fun a little, shall we?

Well, please give your best guess which one is whose..
I will give you a hint.
No. #4 is my eyes.. flirty












While I am waiting for my office colleagues to show up at the office,
I wish you a great weekend! daisy

Silhouette of A Woman..

I think some of you remembered my blog about a photo I showed to a man which then made him start talking about breasts.. my breasts! grin

A good advice I got was that I better not to show a breast-like photo if I didn't want him to talk about my breast. Sure that makes sense.

But then it has me wonder.
What if I show a silhouette of my real breasts? my bum cheeks? my camel toes?

What would be the wildest thing a man would think of or say or do if he saw a walking woman with all her sexy silhouettes before his eyes?

uh oh hole

A Veiled Woman Red Colored Nails On The Hand..??

I just read that question few minutes ago. I found that interesting.

Why she polished her nails?
That she is a teenager?
That she is a free woman?
Ohh sure, every one can polish their nails.. colorfully.. doesn't matter what age. No doubt!
But a VEILED woman?

There are 3 POSSIBLE reasons that I know why a Veiled Woman does that.

First. She is not a Muslim.
Why on earth would a non Muslim woman wear a veil? You may ask.
I read news about a "new" religion which is very similar to Islam.
Or she is in disguise to mislead. She doesn't realize that someone noticed the red color.

Second. She is a Muslim and does that for a show only, like in a catwalk business or adv modelling.

Three. She is a Muslim but doesn't pray.

I know that, and so does she.
But do you? dunno

Have a Happy Happy B'Day..

I know you will come and take a peek here today. I tried very hard to forget it, but I couldn't. I guess it's better for me to not try at all. It will later be forgotten eventually if not sooner. Oh well..

Blow your candles and make a wish.
Do it hurry while the lights last.. rose

I Love You..

I really do.
I think it would be very difficult for me to find a kind sweet patient funny good looking man who doesnt smoke has no pets no piercing nor tattoes not a muslim hater and financially quite stable, like you are. You're a rare find.. very rare. It really breaks my heart to see you go. crying

Nothing can make me feel honored but to let you go so you can spread your wings, fly up in the sky and find the one who can make you a very happy man.. and so I can practice archery with my new bow and arrows..

No wait! professor

and so I can blast you out of the sky with shotgun. Yeeaaahhh! That's better.. much better.. head banger

Hmm which one would you prefer, honey? love


I keep this blog as a reminder for me.
